This is just me wining more than anything else, lol. Last night after Hellsheals and Erdrique ran a few of the quests from the Harbinger of Madness chain (Missing and Fear Factory) and two runs through Litany of the Dead (a little bit of a frustration their) and after Hellsheals logged for the night, I took Erdrique into House Cannith to run a challenge (wanted to get some benefit of the current feature for the DDO Bonus days ). I chose to run Buying Time on Level 18 (since Erdrique is currently that level).
So I entered the Planar Palace and summoned my hireling (a level 18 Favored Soul) and brought forth my mind flayer from the Shard of Exoriat. Luckily, I had a favorable map. My little make shift party were able to protect the kobolds and collect 100 crystals with little difficulty. In fact, the crystals were collected with over a minute and a half left to spare. So I ran back to the Kobold Foreman to extend the time limit to see if I could get more stars and more awards.
Well, unfortunately my timing was a little off. I has hoping to talk to him as soon as I hit 100 crystals because as soon as that mark is hit, the marilith will spawn. Well, the marilith spawned and just when I went to extend the time I realized that the foreman was running around willy nilly trying to get away from her. I tried several more times to extend the time…but he just wouldn’t stand still….so I decided to focus on the Marilith in the hopes I could take her down fast enough and still add more time. Well I wasn’t able to do either, I didn’t get killed by she had a sliver of health left when I got ported out of the quest and the time had expired so I didn’t get any more chances to advance the quest. Lesson to me, keep up with your timing better!! LOL
Well at least I was able to complete the quest .
