PLANE OF HATE!

My first trip to the Plane of Hate happened yesterday (6/21/01) in the evening - it was Wave 2 of the raid that broke the Plane of Hate earlier that day around 10:00AM, so there were no problems on zone-in, and we found most of the first level already cleared. I'm glad it happened this way, since my first experience in the planes was a (Relatively) pleasant one, instead of a "oh my god I almost lost my corpse I am sooooooo never going back" one that most people in my guild had.

We zoned in and everyone was sitting in the little entrence room.

Seconds after I zoned in I was greeted with these messages:

an Agent of Innoruuk shouts 'All praise Innoruuk, our lord and creator!
an Agent of Innoruuk shouts 'All praise Innoruuk, our lord and creator!
an Agent of Innoruuk shouts 'All praise Innoruuk, our lord and creator!

I almost pissed my pants - I thought that our monk, Shearer (Former Ward of Destiny, now Ill Tempered Sea Bass) had pulled some big boss and those were the agro messages from it. I started screaming at the wizard in our group who ported us up, and everyone was really confused for a second, then they realized what had scared me and there were about 5 screens of /ooc LMAO, n00bie comments. Ohh well - no harm done except to my pride.

I was quite humbled to see rats that /conned red to me. It didn't stop me from mezzing them either though.

Spectres were also plentiful in the Plane of Hate, a bit bigger then on Norrath though.

And of course, there were much larger cousins of the old-world Ghouls here too.

Our first real melee happened when we pulled two Clerics of Innoruuk (Cleric of Innoruuks? whatever), along with the rat. I mezzed the rat, the level 56 enchanter mezzed one cleric, and everyone slaughtered the other one.

Then, we'd cleared everything, and moved out towards the throne room. I took this picture along the way, entering the planar citidel proper.

Then the posessed box attacked us.(Really! Honest. Read the text.)

And so, we made our way to the Throne Room area.

Where we were promptly attacked. GO FIGURE!

This picture was the first time I'd seen firsthand what it's like to be summoned...

As a caster, I probably shouldn't have been that high on the hatelist anyways. /shrug there were a million tanks to tuant it off me seconds later anyways.

Then we killed this thing here.

And then THIS one spawned right as the small one was killed. He AE Lifetaps for 375/shot, and rampages, which is equiv to the riposte disc - he riposted every single melee attack thrown at him. We lost a lot of people on it, but not me amazingly...

Then this mummy walked up to me, very calmly, like it wasn't agroed, stopped a foot from me, turned around, said 'You are weak.' and kicked me. I found my bind point VERY fast. (I was really low from the hand which was still alive when this happened.)

I got rezzed, but the people from Wave 1 had to go to bed/work/whatever, so the raid pretty much ended. Since I wanted to be up there with experienced people the first time, the raid ended for me right after my rezz, and I gated back to lower guk to hunt a bit. The next day, I found out that ten minutes after I left, they let a mob they were killing get away, and it brought most of the zone down upon them, causing a total wipeout and a nasty CR for them. I'm glad I left when I did.

I might be going again on the 30th at 1PM EST - if you're 46+ I'm sure you'd be welcome to come.
