Remarkably expressive bandages
I remember fighting stupid snakes and gnolls at the gates of Qeynos...
I remember hunting mammoths with bow and haphazard kiting techniques, and feeling proud whenever I brought one down in those snowy hills.
I remember that crossing Highpass Hold was a terrifying experience.
I remember being afraid of falling in the Hole whilst venturing out of Paineel.
I remember giants, or maybe cyclops, attacking the boat as we crossed the Ocean of Tears.
I remember marvelling at how lifelike and immersive the dwarven city hidden behind the Velious waterfall was.
I remember grinding Crystal Caverns. Those geonids and stalag terrors and crystalline spiders were mine mine mine MINNNEEE !
I remember very bitter, hard solo fights to scrap by some experience, money and the very occasional drop. Often in very odd, little-known and hard-to-reach places, as I kept soloing with a class not optimised for it. I remember all the research to find those places, the maps, the recon work, the necessary stealth, surveying loot tables for ordinary monsters.
I remember my guildies within the Silent Minority. Ambro, Skeg, Ash, Nuwar, Kity, Bulveii, Oozie, Valmir, Myrth, Lathandre, Siffle, Jender, Syssta... a weird collage from most European countries (and some Americans with unusual hours) playing off-hours on a US servers, and that ended up challenging the Plane of Time. A band of brothers with a great sense of community and relaxed attitude.
