Chaos Zakum - Downed!

Yes! the czak run on friday night was a success! 2 helms dropped... and since i'm 3rd on the helming list, that means i'll definitely get to helm next week... whee...! the downside however... is that my scar helm has a pot line with 3% str... i'll probably cube a lil bit to get 3% str... whee... 10% hp! that'll be... 37k hp for me... w/o hb. *drools*

Here's some stats from today's run:
Time taken: roughly 1 hour
1 200 BM
1 17X NL
1 12X bam
4 heroes
1 dk
2 BS - one died real fast than dc-ed T.T. sad...
+ 1 more mystery char... nah, i just forgot the person's job/didnt take note.... too busy with other stuff since its my 1st time in czak >< i think its a nl but... well i just forgot. T.T

Pot usage:
ard 350 elixirs
less than 50 pure water... nvr keep track, but only use a few at arms, after that just spam elixir nia
a few PE..? nvr keep track but hardly press
6X-7X acp... got keep press wrong and waste zzz
3 pud (2 would have been enough, but i died once so... T.T)

addtional items:
1 wheel and 1 charm f3

yeah, died once during SD. didnt quite know how it happen. like i wasnt even sure if i was still in SD when i died or i could pot already but didnt do so in time. what i do know that it was quite a long SD, bs didnt heal tho there was no zombify... i was trying to hit my awakening button but it didnt work - either i didnt have the mp or the skill was in cd... than i tombed together with a few others. >< oh wells. i'm not too sure if i shd feel relieved/glad/lucky that a 1st timer like me (who hasnt even gone ht before) only died once, or i shd feel ashamed that someone with 34k hp still managed to tomb. oh wells. hope i can avoid deaths next week. as little deaths as possible so that my wheels AND charms will last. yes, charms for 1% exp. when it's so hard to get 1% exp... you really go to extremes. Gained like 0.6-0.7% exp at czak just now. Didnt take note and didnt take SSes cos of the bug.

Mass seduce parts at body was quite scary...all you can do is stare at ur hp and watch it go down... for me 1/1 would bring my hp down to ard 5k? than i'd be able to take another 1 or 2 hits... so i'd be praying that i wont get hit so many times... or the bs will heal in time... else i'd be desperately trying to press my awakening button and hope that i wont get the msg saying you dont have enough mp to use the skill. stun and SD also makes it a challenge for attackers (well at least 1st timers like me) hard to crash in time.

Only took SSes of this:

on sat i went to delete and reinstall xp... deleted the entire xp portion and started over from scratch. wanted to increase the space in xp a bit so i dont keep having trouble with the lack of space... and wanted to install a fresh copy of maple. previously i just kept on patching maple over and over... for like 4 or 5 years... till my old maple folder was a whooping 6.1gb large! now after 1.5 days, i finally managed to get maple (and xp) re-installed, and my maple folder stands at 2.58gb... a save of over 3.5gb!

deletion and re-installation of xp was a huge pain. mostly becos i've forgotten the procedures. i've upgraded my mac OS to lion and sadly the bootcamp 4 in lion does not support xp n vista installation anymore, only win7. All i have is a XP installation CD, and i'm NOT gonna fork out $ to buy win7 just to maple. boot camp still lets you create and delete the xp partition as per normal... but to install XP, you need to reboot and directly go to the CD (press and hold option key when starting up). After that... there comes the face palm part. I forgot that to install bootcamp drivers, i just need to pop the mac OS disk into the comp when i'm on XP. i did it when i was on mac... which obviously didnt work. than i tried searching high and low for bootcamp 3.0 drivers... on whether its possible to downgrade bootcamp etc. gosh...

after wasting i couple of hours i finally got things right... than after re-installing bootcamp from the cd a few times... the entire bootcamp driver package now works properly! so i can use two finger scrolling etc... previously bootcamp only worked for like the 1st day or so, than it broke... even reinstall xp couldnt help -.-''' wonder how long it'll last this time round... the good thing is that i no longer need to press the FN key together with the F1-F12 keys for things like smile to work. and i also get to use two finger or the clicking the bottom right corner of the track pad to right click (and cancel enrage for eg). tap to click also works now with the bootcamp drivers...

actually only the graphic card and wifi drivers worked at 1st... even the audio wasnt working... so i went to re-install the boot camp drivers a couple of times and... amazing the whole package works now. oh yeah... surprisingly, i dont need to use the soft keyboard to log in maple. which is a huge relief :)

so yeah, installing xp and maple took me the whole of sat and half a day on sun... after that i went to rush training hero... so this post got delayed till now... -.-'''

Good news for my hero tho... at 94.23% now, i'll be able to level tmr as long as nothing goes wrong (like urgent sever checks or roll backs ><)

there was an urgent SC earlier on... i went to play trickster in the meantime... but eventually gave up cos of the lag. i play a 1441 dragon, so its basically a glass cannon that dies really easily. just a bit of lag and i was toast... -.-''' doesnt help that its been years since i last played and in thang pate mean time an equivilant of the maple big bang patch occurred. the trickster wikis and such arent very comprehensive either... so i've gotta take a while to catch up on the game... if i am serious about playing back the game ><

Also managed to get a sg glass on hero last fri, and so i potted the nwe and old glass... both were 2 liners, but one of them gave me a neat 2% str! that's a 3XX increase in max damage range.. neat!
