It's just my boring GW notes.
Guides to mesmer & H+H HM, and occasional ranting included.

  1. Replaying: Thief 3 pt.3

    Killing Time aka Clockwork Tower

    34 minutes
    4 times caught
    2450 loot (100%; noteworthy numbers: 62% before going the "long way down" in part 1, 65% total in part 1.)

    2 water arrows used
    1 moss arrow used

    This is the stupidest mission of the game. Yep, stupider than the Blue Heron Inn. That's because the loot was obviously placed by a gamemaster (and a mad one at that), not by the NPCs. And because the NPCs are placed in ...

  2. Ritualists...

    ... are OPed at the moment. Seriously.

    I did go and hunt for Nick this week, because people had written that they only needed like 18 minutes to get the golden dubloons. While doing that, it occurred to me that my ritualist would probably be better at this than my monk or my mesmer - the problem is that the ritualist works as a mule, has only half-heartedly finished Cantha, only visited Kamadan on Elona and nothing else, and only unlocked all the outposts between LA and Piken Square. ...

  3. Replaying: Thief 3 pt.2

    Meeting Artemus opens up the Keeper Library in Stonemarket (Plaza area), and initiates a cutscene: Caduca reads some prophecies in latin(-ish), speaking of the end of time and the brethren and betrayers. Gamall, the translator girl, is grown up a bit since Thief ...

  4. Replaying: Thief 3 pt.1

    Blue Heron Inn
    5 minutes
    0 times caught
    1 knockout ( )
    200 loot.

    Items used: 2 water arrows, 1 noisemaker arrow. (1 water, 1 noisemaker you're forced to use, or you'll be told to try again.)

    Garrett enters an inn and steals a valuable item from a nobleman; this nobleman is in the process of making a cunning plan with someone else, concerning another valuable item that his cousin has in his vault.

    I really loathe ...

  5. Replaying: Thief Gold pt.5

    Now this is going to be spoileriffic. I'm going to put some empty lines between this spoiler warning and the first of the last 3 missions.

    THE Cutscene ...
