My raiding alliance Innocent has spent many a night trying to defeat Saruman T2 Challenge Mode. (using the rings is one of my most unfavourite parts of the fight. I always have to concentrate so hard when watching the order, otherwise my mind will wander off )
So many hours of easily getting through phases 1-4 easily only to fail a minute or so into phase 5. There have been good times when we’ve made progress or beat T2, yet there have been some really low times due to it being such a challenging fight. It was the only part of the Tower of Orthanc raid that we didn’t beat before the level increase. But never did our determination to beat the old bastard waver.
We’ve kept on trying after RoR was released whilst people were leveling up. Our gear wasn’t much better and it was still quite the challenge. Don’t expect to waltz in at 85 and have ToO to be a cakewalk! Whilst it’s bitter sweet to have done this post 75, Innocent finally prevailed and got Laurelin server’s first Saruman T2 CM kill!
This meant new horsie time!! Shiiiiiiiny! (though forgetting to turn graphics up to ultra high.. not so shiny, oops)
Impromptu meeting to show off our horses! It’s a bit funny, they have synchronised colour changing.
We also got a model of Orthanc (kin homes need more enormous yard slots!!)
It’s pretty huge:
The view from the inside is… interesting:
We were all really pleased and proud to have gotten this done. Next up: Original Challenger of Saruman title!
