The Thanksgiving Death March - Nov 27, 2009

For this event, several immortals volunteered to run Death March groups against some of the hardest creatures in the game. The immortal would happily bear the brunt of the attack, but would do no damage. It was still up to the group to be able to survive incidental attacks and do enough damage to prevail.

Two sets of groups were formed. A lower level group, for those 100 total levels and below, was led by the immortals Bloodlust and Zahmya. The higher level group was run by Shadowfax, Gandor, and Revan. In both groups, there were many deaths even with immortal assistance, so the event remained true to its name.

Paid for by those deaths, players got to lay eyes on and possibly even see the death of some of the most powerful creatures in existence. Thanks to everyone who participated and helped out!

The Midlevel (80-100 Total) March

Initial group led by Bloodlust and Zahmya:
  • Brynn (First to quit)
  • Jona
  • Slow (Honorable mention for almost first to recall)
  • Squall
  • Corrie
  • Razor
  • Fasius (First to die - tie)
  • Libertine (First to recall)
  • Starman
  • Cheetah
  • Corrie
  • Adric
  • Dru
  • Sadie (First to die - tie)
  • Darken

First area: Xandar's Cathedral


First test of the mid range group was Asranth, known for area effect poison breath and general ass kicking. He lived up to the hype, causing the first Mass Death, and the mass exodus of the naive who thought the MARCH OF DEATH was gonna be a free xp run with an imm holding their hand the whole way.

Result: Group annihilation, Asranth at 99% hp. Only Slow, Squall, and Libertine survived, even with an immortal taking the brunt of the damage. Starman, Libertine, and Brynn all left the group at this point, and Karah joined.

Remaining Group:
  • Jona
  • Razor
  • Adric
  • Sadie
  • Corrie
  • Cheetah
  • Karah
  • Squall
  • Darken
  • Slow
  • Dru

The Greater Gargoyle

No deaths. Last blow: Adric


No deaths. Last blows:
  • Earth elemental: Darken
  • Fire elemental: Slow
  • Air elemental: Razor
  • Water elemental: Cheetah


Seranik was substantially more dangerous, and this battle was rough. The group started to get organized here, and managed to survive.

Last blow: Darken

Stone Dragon

The stone dragon proved to be an unmitigated disaster for the group, with only Squall and Slow surviving. Razor, Corrie, Jona, and Adric left the group, and Mathayas joined.

Second area: Xandar's Angel's Cry

The group at this point consisted of:
  • Mathayas
  • Sadie
  • Cheetah
  • Karah
  • Squall
  • Darken
  • Slow
  • Dru


No deaths. Last blow: Darken

Paladin of Kenai

Working up to something a bit more serious.

Last blow: Karah


Starting to get a bit tougher, with the group coming out pretty battered.

Last blow: Darken


Group Annihilation. Deaths:
  • Darken
  • Karah
  • Slow recalled
  • Sadie recalled
  • Cheetah fled
  • Dru fled

Slow, Squall, and Sadie left the group, while Zogg and Ray joined.


Quite dicey for the group, but no deaths.

Last blow: Karah

And without warning, a repop!

Last blow: Karah


The group started getting smart, and feeble minded to prevent offensive casting. This way, the immortal tank became the only real target.

Last blow: Zogg


Last blow: Dru


Last blow: Darken

Third area: Ubar Religious Tower

The group at this entrance to the tower was:
  • Karah
  • Cheetah
  • Dru
  • Zogg
  • Mathayas
  • Darken
  • Ray

Holy Guardians

Last blows: Darken and Dru

High Priest of Ubar - First Try

The high priest turned out to be more than the group could handle on their first attempt. Only Mathayas survived.

Holy Guardians - Again

Last blows: Zogg and Dru

High Priest of Ubar - Second Try

After careful deliberation, the group decided to try again with different tactics. Darken, Cheetah, and Karah died, but the last blow was landed by Mathayas and the group was victorious!

Servant of Allah

Last blow: Karah

Guardian of Peace x2

Last blows: Mathayas and Karah

Rub Al Khani

Last blow: Zogg

Final area: Labyrinth

The group had dwindled to the hardcore by this point, but Squall returned to help make up for it. Final group for the Labyrinth:
  • Mathayas
  • Karah
  • Zogg
  • Squall
  • Darken
  • Cheetah

Fire elemental

Last blow: Squall


Last blow: Karah


Last blow: Squall

Nine headed hydra

Last blow: Zogg
