|Putting extra kill in Akilles. He lies.|
Spent "some" time, yesterday, trying to 'fill in' some acquisition gaps trying to get the cursed Cyclops Statue.
Autumn, you don't have that yet, lol?
No, I do not. I did a repetitive grind on the General for 2 HOURS, yesterday, and nada.
Not that it's a 'hard' battle, mind you.. 2-3 rounds in a 4 mana cost match (1 vampire, 2 wand strikes).
I've collected 4 Blue Ghosts (bonus!), several Dark Wooden Shelves, a couple Prop Houses, and more Jade Studded Athames than a Circus Knife-thrower, but no statue.
Heckhound, I've emptied (2) 120 mana bottles grinding this. At 4 mana/battle, that's 60 attempts. Crazy, crazy 'poor luck' on my part. I took "R" on a tour of The Labyrinth in DS, and my Kraken Statue just dropped in my lap.
I guess it all "evens out", in the long run. I haven't done 'drop grinding' like this since Oyotomi, (and I *still* need to visit him, again! It's more the principle, now.)
It's true that "Patience is a virtue", but "Detached, machine-like grinding" is an Art.
|I'm a friend of General Akilles, I was told he's here. Can I see him, please?|
