Terrorized by Terrorantula (Everquest 2)

Tonight was great fun as I grouped with a bunch of guildies in Sinking Sands/Pillars of Flame. Our primary goal was to gain Alternate Advancement (AA) points from the many named creatures in those zones. My character, Sabine, got a total of 13 AA points by the time the event was done! One of the mobs we came across was Terrorantula. Terrorantula is a HUGE spider, dwarfing every character with the possible exceptions of ogres or female sarnak.

Now I remember Terrorantula from the original Everquest. One of my characters in that game was a male, dark elf cleric, and he and a necromancer friend (ask her about the bees or the pink panties sometime *snickers*) would camp out in the Southern Desert of Ro amidst all of the hostile undead. Terrorantula was of a much higher level than most of the other mobs in the zone, and liked to wander about killing all of the lower levels unlucky enough to find themselves in her path, so we were often on the watch for her. The Cataclysm that took place many Norrathian years later caused a lot of changes to the landscape, so the area is now called Sinking Sands in Everquest 2.

Of course, the current Terrorantula is not the exact same Terrorantula as in the past, but the spider is just as HUGE and potentially just as terrifying. You can definitely tell that they are related.

This spider was only the beginning of the adventure. We had additional fun when the ranger in our group would go after a shiny and die. Definitely the subject of many jokes and (all-in-fun) snide remarks.

Since I’m unable to group often due to real life schedule and afk’s, it’s always a lot of fun when I do get the opportunity, and I’d had this group on schedule for half the week and was really looking forward to it. If the hour wasn’t so late and I wasn’t so blasted tired, I’d probably be climbing the walls with excitement even now.

If any of you lurking out there are doing anything particularly fun in your games, I’d love to hear about it!

    Haha! That’s one of the reasons I posted that particular screenie.

    You’re pointing at Temyen for some reason. Pointing out the next to be dead, perhaps? 🙂
