Hello, everyone! I've created new forum threads for each of the V4a runs; they can be found here:

Team Synergy V4a Friday 2/19 9:00 PM (1 Slot Open!)
Team Synergy V4a Saturday 2/20 11:48 AM (FULL)
Team Synergy V4a Sunday 2/21 11:48 AM (1 Slot Open!)
Team Synergy V4a Sunday 2/21 6:48 PM (FULL)

We'll be managing rosters and payment information for the runs there; I may update here, too, but look there first. :)

I think Wade has transferred most, if not all, of his paid tickets already; I'll be doing so this week, as well, and we'll both transfer additional tickets as everyone sends payment.

Thanks,
Brian

I will get payments to you and Wade on Friday. Had to drop a large amount on my new two teeth today.

Which teeth? Cause the recent ones shouldn't have cost more than about $20-30 each. Did they overcharge you?

Wink-wink, nudge-nudge

By tooth #14, you should be able to get them with 8k auctions for only $5-$8 each.

Posting this here in the hopes that most of us are still following these threads and a lot of folks will see it. It's also possibly relevant for V4a.

I'm in a tough spot with dungeon difficulty right now. I am under-geared for epic, but NM is too easy for most of my friends.

I really enjoy being a part of the Team Synergy runs, so much so that these are the only runs I do much of the time. This is a great group.

V3b on Epic was not fun for me at all. I apologize if I was grouchy to anyone during the run, but I was basically excluded much of the run because my HP and saves were too low. (I thought I would be ok, it was my fault). I had a great time with the group on NM, but some of those combats were literally over before I had a chance to attack.

Epic can be a lot of fun (especially when the DM goes off script) but I am often woefully under geared for it, resulting in runs like V3a Friday where I couldn't contribute, taking the fun out of it. I feel geared pretty well for NM, but most of the Synergy folks are so well geared that we steamroll the combats, and that's not challenging or fun for anyone either. When I run with other groups who are not Epic geared, NM is a more appropriate challenge for me.

I do not expect anyone to "gear down" to NM on my account. I know this group often likes to run Epic and I sign up with that possibility in mind. I usually end up playing some of both and in the past that has worked out just fine.

Would it be useful to include difficulty level in our surveys? I know we have limited space on the survey now, so it may not be possible, or may not be helpful. Maybe it adds too much more work for Brian.

I am willing to upgrade some places on my build in the interest of keeping up, but I don't have an "epic" token budget. I am looking at one, maybe two relics this year, and possibly one more UR.

Comments and suggestions welcome!

This group has such a pool of tokens amongst us that I think we can always help with anyone's build. I think it wouldn't hurt to put difficulties in our discussions and I also think it can be helpful to post our builds and get suggestions and help with needed tokens. Epic was definitely ramped up these last runs compared to past runs, so it is not a bad idea to look at our builds. I agree NM, is almost too easy for this group but the ramped up Epic is a challenge.

I'm new-ish to the group but also generally a NM-level player, especially in the sense that I don't deal out huge amounts of damage. I've tuned my builds so that I can mostly survive in Epic (i.e. lots of HP and saves), because given the choice between the party cake-walking NM vs struggling in Epic I *usually* get more enjoyment from Epic, but I've also never had an experience like the one you just had. (Of course it helps that I usually play Druid which gets much better starting saves than Rogue does.)

If we do try to build difficulty preferences into the survey, it would be nice to do it in a way that distinguishes between "NM is the right difficulty for my builds" and "I am overpowered for NM but happy to run NM anyway and don't mind if we win all the fights in 1 round". That won't be easy to coordinate, especially since different people probably have different thresholds for the line between fun struggle vs frustrating struggle (for Epic) and fun winning vs too-easy winning (for NM).

Otherwise, I definitely think it makes sense to start talking about difficulty preferences for each scheduled run in advance (on the forums) where have more time to come to a consensus, and possibly tweak builds to level set.

Yes, my AC is lower than the Wizard's. No regrets!
