Level:  193 Date: 4-May-2010 Mood: Angry

Completed a number of Deathgate Sieges.  This is to get Chase, which requires 25,000 Battle Hearts and alchemy to achieve. Of course, we can get other rewards as well through alchemy from the Battle Hearts like Tempered Steel . But this time, I am aiming for the Hero Chase first.

The Death Gates Rewards with 396 Kills:
You have been rewarded 2 demi points of Aurora!
You have been rewarded 2 demi points of Aurora!

[attack: 0 defense: 2] You have been awarded with: Ironhart’s Might! [attack: 5 defense: 1] You have been awarded with: Ironhart’s Might!

[attack: 8 defense: 7] You have been awarded with: 830 Battle Hearts!

Yes, no favour points as usual. Kind of disappointing.  The loot is a bit disappointing as well. Except for the two epic drops (Great Halberd), there is nothing impressive about the loot. Even the GReat Halberds are nothing impressive. But then I only had 396 kills, so it was okay I guess. Oh, additional 830 Battle Hearts! Chase, here I come. Na…still a long way to go.

Next, I defeated the Ice Elemental. This is to get the Frost Bolt for Medius bonus (+0.75 damage per frost bolt and 1 additional defense when equipped). Kind of difficult to get the frost bolts. I have been trying and trying but could only get 3 frost bolts to create Medius. My friend had been trying for a while as well. He still lacked 2 Genesis Swords and 2 Frost Bolts. I was lucky, once I had 2 Genesis Swords when I defeated the Earth Elemental.

Ice Elemental Rewards with 1,784,619 dmg / 498,709 def :
You have been awarded with: Energy Potion! [attack: 0 defense:  0] You have been rewarded 2 demi points of Ambrosia!
You have been rewarded 1 demi points of Malekus!
You have been rewarded 2 demi points of Ambrosia!
You have been rewarded 1 demi points of Corvintheus!
You have been awarded with: Earth Shard! [attack: 3 defense: 1] You have been awarded with: Angelic Blessing! [attack: 0 defense: 2] You have been awarded with: Angelic Blessing! [attack: 0 defense: 2] You have been awarded with: Rusty Armor! [attack: 2 defense: 3] You have been awarded with: Earth Shard! [attack: 3 defense: 2] You have been awarded with: Arcanist! [attack: 23 defense: 20] You have been awarded with: Arctic Blade! [attack: 9 defense: 13] You have been awarded with: Frozen Signet! [attack: 8 defense: 8] You have been awarded with: Glacial Raiments! [attack: 11 defense: 11] You have been awarded with: Hellslayer Knight! [attack: 29 defense: 33] You have been awarded with: Castle!
You have been awarded with: Sky Sanctuary!
You have been awarded with: Marketplace!
You have been awarded with: Castle!
You have been awarded with: Frost Edge! [attack: 17 defense: 10]

As usual, no favour points. Do note that I hit more than 2 million points in both attack and defense. Still, no favour points. And no Frost Bolt! Come on, this is getting tedious. Get the epic loot Hellslayer Knight and the Frost Edge but that’s it. But was compensated with 2 castles.  It will be a while when I try another Ice Elemental. Getting Chase and Cartigan will be my top priority now. The frost Bolt can wait.

The Death Gates Rewards with 573 kills:
You have been rewarded 2 demi points of Ambrosia!
You have been rewarded 1 demi points of Corvintheus!
You have been rewarded 1 demi points of Corvintheus!
You have been rewarded 1 demi points of Malekus!
You have been rewarded 1 demi points of Ambrosia!
You have been awarded with: Orc War Axe! [attack: 4 defense: 1] You have been awarded with: Spartan Warrior! [attack: 2 defense: 1] You have been awarded with: Angelic Blessing! [attack: 0 defense: 2] You have been awarded with: Arcanist! [attack: 23 defense: 20] You have been awarded with: Oathkeeper! [attack: 7 defense: 4] You have been awarded with: Arcanist! [attack: 23 defense: 20] You have been awarded with: Atlantean Mace! [attack: 6 defense: 3] You have been awarded with: Atlantean Shield! [attack: 7 defense: 7] You have been awarded with: Mountain Keep!
You have been awarded with: Castle!
You have been awarded with: Great Halberd! [attack: 8 defense: 7] You have been awarded with: Wall of Fire! [attack: 7 defense: 7] You have been awarded with: 1030 Battle Hearts!

Yet another attempt to get more Battle Hearts for our beloved Chase and we come back disappointed as usual. One Great Halberd and one Wall of Fire. Oh, and a Mountain Keep. Whatever, got the 1030 Battle Hearts to aid in my quest to get Chase. Right, still no favour points. I am guessing that the developers are not willing to so freely give away favour points. They want you to pay for it! That is my opinion.

And next, we continue in our efforts to get more Battle Hearts. Here, I start from the beginning in the siege for Death Gates.

The Deathrune Fortress Rewards with 134 kills:
You have been rewarded 1 demi points of Azeron!
You have been rewarded 1 demi points of Malekus!
You have been awarded with: Energy Potion! [attack: 0 defense: 0] You have been rewarded 1 demi points of Aurora!
You have been awarded with: Angelic Blessing! [attack: 0 defense: 2] You have been awarded with: Orc War Axe! [attack: 4 defense: 1] You have been awarded with: Valerian Mystic! [attack: 11 defense: 11] You have been awarded with: Ironhart’s Might! [attack: 5 defense: 1] You have been awarded with: Orc War Axe!

[attack: 20 defense: 24] You have been awarded with: Demonic Armor! [attack: 5 defense: 8] You have been awarded with: Mountain Keep!
You have been awarded with: Great Halberd! [attack: 8 defense: 7] You have been awarded with: 275 Battle Hearts!

Hey, not bad considering that I just killed only 134 enemies. One Great Halberd and One Mountain Keep is quite good. I am wondering for part II of the siege, do they count the first part in the number of kills? If so, I think it is quite good since you will be rewarded twice for the number of kills. I didn’t realize this till now. Anyway, I have 18607 Battle Hearts already. If I calculate correctly, I should have Chase by the end of next week! Yaaaa! And meanwhile, I am trying to get Cartigan, which has been tough going. The amount of Energy needed to complete those quests is astonishing. I have 293 Energy and I am finding it very difficult to get the necessary rewards. Well, I guess this is what this game is all about. Patience. Hahahaha!
