—— The Shadow Odyssey Signature Quest Series ——
Watch HERE or read here…..(Or both!)
Quick Lore Review to understand and enjoy the quest: Peacock quest series(Claymore & Soulfire are “sister swords” and arms or hands of “Theer”, though it has not been revealed or found out what this means) revealed Anashanti’Sul to be the original Prime Healer. She was banished to the void when she went to far and tried to cure death by introducing Undeath into the world of Norrath.
—Snap forward, which is about 1,500 years in the past of norrath from it’s present, and the founder of Qeynos finds the Staff of Theer in some underwater ruins. Upon activating it he unleashes a void invasion upon his village and maybe even all of norrath.
–He joins with a slew of adventurers(The Ethernauts, each with their own backgrounds and stories.) in order to try to stop the void invasion, this quest series seeks to explain the events after the journal entries of Eylee that were released as lore stories after the first world wide Trakanon kill. (You can read all these lore stories after you get the book from Professor Fondfate or HERE. )
Group Instances & Raids
Note: Atleast one named encounter in every zone has a trick that must be learned before you can kill them or progress in the zone. This means you must OPEN YOUR EYES. Look for anything in the enviroment around the named that could connect to it, dialog that the named says. THINK: Clickable options, puzzles, moveable options, things that appear when you fight, corresponding pathways, the way mobs move.
— Note also: No zone is unbeatable. The ratings that follow give you an idea of where to start. Start by doing all the easy zones, then moderate, and finally moving onto hard. This equips you for these fights by doing the quests and obtaining the loot for these zones. In addition you will gain achievement along the way, making your character strong in many respects. Try to stick to your main role that your class follows and look towards the class forums on eq2flames for further assistance with AA specs.
