TDA1696494 - True Grind: Seige at Deeperdark, Thurs: 5pm

Hello Everyone. I just picked up the last ticket for this grind about a minute ago. It will be my first TD event for Gencon.

I have 3 classes I can run. Paladin, Fighter and Monk. I should have them all level 5 by the run. I don't care which I play so the other 2 are free for anyone in need.

Can't wait.

If you're able to do so, I would highly recommend going on at least one "standard" TD adventure before you attempt Grind--it's not designed for novices.

from the Gen Con description of the event (emphasis added):
A combat hackfest for those who enjoy TD's combat slider system. players must survive an onslaught of the minions of the Deeperdark who seek revenge for the defeat of their Queen. Familiarity with TD's combat system required! (New players should first go through a normal dungeon or attend the TD101 seminar).

There's a TD 101 seminar at 10 am on Thursday. It's free.

I'm not saying all this to embarrass you. I'm saying this because I want you to enjoy your TD experience.
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?

I've got a ticket to this run, I'm red geared for ranger/monk. This'll be my first event of this particular gencon. I will be using 5th lvl card either way. Prefer a normal difficulty as i'll be coming pretty much directly off volunteer shift to this run.

Thanks for looking out Druegar.

Just to be clear. This is my 3rd year in the grind. I was just pointing out this would be my first TD event for the weekend.

I've had a blast the last few years running the grind. I think it's because that first year, I lost my +2 slayer weapon and full Templar set to a Rust Monster and yet the whole party was able to pull ourselves out of the desert. Me completely armorless with only my bow.... and I revived the dead cleric just so she could heal me. So that's a win in my book. ah...memories.

Last year we had a mixup of who was playing what classes and it came down to Raven happy happy fun time (TM). That was a weird weird run last year. My 3rd on grind as well. I'm a solid red level melee ranger/monk. (my money has gone to greed stuff recent years). Seeing what improvements i can make after Origins and what I acquire.

Hey Matt,

Nice to meet ya. I am cool with any of the class I'm bringing. If I had to pick it would be the Monk only because I've only played it once in 3 years. Still if you want monk that's cool, I can throw you some of my gear to add to your monk's gear. I have a Might set. Crown, Girdle and boots. I have Gloves of Flying fist and two +2 Viper sting fangs and the viper shirt. As well as the goggles of instant analysis and charm of Synergy. I have 2 charm of synergy so that at least a +2 health bonus if no one esle has any.

I look forward to the run.

Appreciate it, my preferred class is Ranger anyways. I just use a common core between the two is easier for the most part. I really didn't buy tokens this year but i will pickup a few rares i want this year. Saving up my token money for what i'm missing on a CoA this year.

Build i used last year: obviously skip the greed for grind.

Oh man - I remember that run. The player card was a mess, and people were still trying to juggle classes and tokens minutes before going into the run. "Would you like a +15 to hit? No I don't need to see your tokens. Should it be a +17? Okay, +17 to hit, +15 damage. Does that look good? Yay! Fun times! Everyone's happy! Grab your card & Let's go!"

Think that was the run when i accidentally steam-cooked the party, never let/make a ranger play wizard for the first time be in grind.

Damn... That's funny. Those are the games you remember forever. The epic fails. The close calls that find you holding on by an inch for what seems like forever. And still luck can't throw your team a bone and you party wipe against the odds. I love those games. .... well after a long time, healing my wounds, I think back on those games with awe.
