Joaquin Underground Prison Raid Video

Well...Its been a really, really long time since I have had any motivation to record and do another vid for sword. As you all know I retired around 6-7 months ago from making sword videos. Well.....I guess I am pleased to say...I have returned! Sadly, this will be my only one for right now because I am terribly busy, but I definitely found some inspiration during the week. And I did nab some footage for castilla mines as well.....

I also want to take the time to thank the people that essentially made this happen! All my buddies that migrated over to what! Without out their support this could have never happened. Thanks a lot guys! I means a ton that you would take the time to run me through a HARD raid...while guarding me the whole time too.

Let me know what you guys think! XD


Yea So while crafting some Artisan's Boots for a friend....We came upon a very special bug:

Yup, what you see here is true!
The first one comes from the mobs in Scorching Plateau I believe
The Second one comes from the tool merchant by trading in 5 Vet Tokens.

Thanks for the heads up patch! lol...... did we really run out of adjectives for leather?

Sword 2 Comics!

So check out what I found!

Visit it!

It is comics in the style of Order of the Stick/ XKCD / Cyanide and Happiness but for sword 2. I am enjoying them! Hope you do too!

New To The Family!

So I got Valeria, Cath Torche and Reckless!

Also see my notes for the quests in the posts below!

my new additions to the family.....
Valeria of course..

Galatea [Catherine Torche] - is a name popularly applied to the statue carved of ivory by Pygmalion of Cyprus in Greek mythology . In the Myth Pygmalion Carves the statute and Aphrodite brings it to life! Kind of like Cath the Robot becoming Meat Cath! XD

Eris [Reckless Emilia] - is the Greek goddess of strife and discord, her name being translated into Latin as Discordia. I thought that would be fitting XD She kind of looks like Eris from Sinbad and The Seven Seas!

Happy Gaming!

Reckless Emilia / Crazy Emilia Quest
Posted from Book of Fire!! All Hail Book of Fire!
-Sorceress Emilia is a pretty straight forward fight. I didn't use any boosts or fillers for her. All she does is her auto attack, and every so often an aoe. I lived just fine in 6/3 92e armor. I really beat her using Lisa with a crappy 6+ assassin's dagger. Just make sure to use the Spiritual Resistance Potion!

Valaria's Quest
Posted from Book of Fire!! All Hail Book of Fire!
-If you are a royalist you will start the quest from Lyndon
-Testormento Summons little Bio man and other mobs when he reaches 20% don't caught off guard. The bio guys pretty much 2-3 shot me. He also does a crazy Aoe attack that may wipe your team so when he gets to about 30% move a person away in case he kills everyone.

Catherine Torche's quest
Posted from Book of Fire!! All Hail Book of Fire!
-Okay so Quick things to note about the fight:
  1. You cannot hide your cath in sitting shot at the start of the mission, the room fills with blades
  2. There are 2 messages that appear before Cath will, the messages seem to be dependent on kills. I got the First message between (50-60min) the second message between (40-50) and cath showed up at (25-40), Yea I failed more than once so I give you a rough spread there. A Friend of mine actually killed so much so fast he did the whole quest in 12 min.
  3. I would highly suggest running over to the north east set of stairs...There seems to be a fewer spawn over there, also this is where I put my cath in sitting shot. make sure to buff!

Objective : Catherine Torsche Character Card
Prerequisite : completed Al Quetz Moreza, Holy Water Chamber quest, completed Catherine recruitment quest, Catherine of CHA/STR/DEX/INT (any one, any level)
* There are many "Catherines" in this game. In this guide, "Catherine" refers to any one of the four types of robot Catherine while "Catherine Torsche" refers to the human Catherine.
  1. Go to any major town to trigger the quest mail automatically.
  2. Go to F4 of Dr. Torsche Mansion Grand Library and walk over the middle of the room to trigger a non-combat instance.
  3. Click on the green arrow leading to Dr. Torsche's Laboratory to start another non-combat instance. Within the mission, talk to Catherine.
  4. With Catherine as team leader, go to D2 of Torsche Mansion Savage Garden and click on the green arrow leading to Torsche Mansion Basement to start a combat instance. The mission lasts for 1 hour. Catherine must not die in the mission; if she dies, it is instant Mission Failure without any chance for Soul Crystal or Resuscitation. Within the mission:-

    1. Move a few steps closer to the central room before buffing. The first room will be filled up with Rotating Blades after a few minutes.
    2. Defeat normal mobs while waiting for Catherine Torsche to appear. Mobs are lvl120 Golem with 60 AR/DR. There are 4 stairwells to the sides of the central room that serve as safe zones, so stay at those spots to avoid getting swarmed.
    3. After some time, Catherine Torsche will appear after a short cutscene.
    4. Look for her, or stay at a stairwell and wait for her to look for you. Either way, reduce Catherine Torsche's hitpoints to critical level to trigger a second cutscene. Catherine Torsche has the following stats:-

REJOICE! Ash's Blog is back.

Thank Goodness. I am overjoyed. That is all.

Three Cheers for Ashardalon!

New bash to come later.

And this is why we can't have nice things. Closing of Ashardalon's Blog

As I would assume, many of you have taken notice of the absolute worst blow to the sword community possible T_T

Apparently, real a--holes have been non-stop trolling Ash's blog and this has resulted in him closing it to the public. This is such a tragedy because that blog is honestly the greatest source of information available, He does a ton of really unique things on this blog:
  1. Testing Sword 2 Features: i.e. experience rates, upgrading rates, everything you can name.
  2. Easy Access to information about other GE updates
  3. Fun facts where he describes where some of the names in Sword 2 come from
  4. Events and Updates for our version of GE. Like wtf to do for the quests and stuff
  5. UI Interfaces and Other Upgrades to the Game as it stands
  6. Costume Pictures!

All the trolls should just go ritually commit suicide or beg for forgiveness now for depriving us of that blog. I started both my blog AND my videos as a direct result of Ash's blog. I hope the community realizes the incredible amount of work AND input Ashardalon has put both into the community and towards his blog. What a huge loss especially for new players. I found Ash's blog before the forums when I started playing and honestly I only drift to the forums when I am really bored.

I believe that a sword player could get away with only visiting a few sites ever:
  1. Ashardalon's Blog
  4. Book of Wind (Past) Book of Fire (Present)
  5. Maaaaybe the forums.

This actually makes me more derailed than G1 with all their problems combined. Sorry for being more long winded then normal, but this has me really upset. I freaking love that blog. and see....when people are jerks, this is why we cant have nice things.

Master Helena!

Finally, Mastered an Ele class. That Took....Forever. How do you people manage wizards?

Master Musk and Master Grace!

Finally! Utilizing a HPS and the 50% buff weeks I got these two to Master! Now if only I had good gear for them T_T
