    I was digging through my PMs over at the tem boards and found this gem:

    That fateful day when Saen met up with me in PoHate and we tried to duo Inny. We almost had him, bud. I still think we could have done it without the adds.

    I very much remember this encounter. It is one of my fondest memories from EQmac.

    I've pasted the full story below from the Temerity forums-


    Last night I popped into PoHate hoping to farm some gems and get rich. Delorne was already in the zone scouting around for minis and killing trash. I grouped up with him to clear trash for plat since we both had nothing better to do. All of the minis were down, but Innorruuk was up on Del's track. We decided to clear up to his quarters and make a joke of an attempt at duoing him (no healer, little DPS and support... hah! It could never happen).

    At first we had trouble finding Inny. The people who were previously in the zone had left him somewhere besides his home. We ran around searching for him until I felt a punch of knockback gflux and had first aggro. The first attempt at Inny was disastrous. We got him down to 97% before I had to feign him off. We simply weren't prepared for the engage and didn't know what to expect.

    After the initial encounter we tried a few different ways of pulling him so that he would be bard slowed before I engaged. We spent plenty of time trying different strategies but pathing troubles were proving difficult. Eventually we just said f* it and I pulled him to the south wall of the zone, tanking him at engage and hoping for a quick slow.

    We got it...

    A quarter of the way through. Things are going smoothly

    We picked up an add at about 50%, and Del kept it locked down while twisting 7 other songs. At about 40% we popped a trap with some imp adds and had to quickly dispatch them. Things were a bit rough at this point

    Unfortunately, the extra burden of the adds proved too difficult to recover from. I'm certain without them, we would have been standing over Inny's corpse.

    I consider this one of my most successful failures in EQ.

    You didn't have harm touch on your main hotbar page???

    Was it really that bad on AK?

    It was actually very good burst- I hit as high as 8300 with it. However, with a 72 min cooldown, there was no point in having it on my main hotbar page. I could easily switch over to another page when I wanted to use it. For this particular fight I believe I used leechcurse which is the non-critting, non-amplified HT that heals me for the same amount as the damage dealt. The healing number was somewhere between 1-2k.

    Leech curse I thought turned 100% of your melee DPS into healing?

    While the Unholy Aura one was the HT buff?

    I think you're right on this. I used Leech Touch (an AA harmtouch) which heals for the damage of a regular HT, but cannot be amplified by UA and shares a cooldown with HT. So I used Leech Touch and Leech Curse for the healing effects but foregoing 6kish of damage

    I used to have a tiny resolution on my puter back then, plus this is a screenie of my viewport which was considerably smaller.

    Solusek Ro kill. Not sure why I didn't get an action shot, probably the exhilaration of tanking the big guy. Judging by the comments post fight we must have had many people miss hails or some such. (typical!)
