Lady Foxx had only been logged on for about ten minutes this afternoon when she was recruited for the Level 24-26 respec task force. I was skeptical at first, given my experience with the Striga Island TF just the other night, but I figured I'd give it a go and see how things played out, since I still had a boatload of debt to work off.
It was a nicely balanced team of 6, consisting of a tanker, a scrapper, a blaster, a warshade, and two defenders. I was the empathy defender, and the other one was a bubbler. Four of us were in the 24-26 level range, and the other two were in the mid 30s, exemplared down. And OMG... this team rocked. The leader said he had done this TF six times before, and I was the only person in the group who hadn't also done it at least once. Everyone had a really good handle on what to expect, and they also were terrific about communicating so that I wasn't left standing around going "huh, what?" the whole time.
It felt like we breezed through the thing in no time, and there were only two deaths the entire time. Though I'm not sure the first one counts, since it was one of the Level 30-somethings getting himself killed on purpose so he would have debt and "Have a number to watch since I'm not getting XP." The battles at the end in the reactor core were insane, but between all the buffs and bubbles and invisibility everyone was able to share, there were only one or two really close calls.
One big lesson I'm taking away from this, for when my scrapper does this TF with her SG mates, it's VERY helpful to have someone with invisibility and recall friend to get past the bombs in the hallway, and bring everyone up to the room before the reactor room. But what I'm most happy about today... I have a respec to hold on to now, all my debt from the Striga TF is gone, and I dinged Level 26 doing a door mish after the respec TF was over.
P.S. - Go. Hunt. Kill Skulz.
