Dammit Mod Mark, Brink of Extinction is hard :(

I asked a question vicariously in w00ters, and Mod Mark responded.

"I find brink far easier than before tbh, use better abilities and different gear".

 

So, erm, looks like I need level 80 weapons then. Fine. 80 ranged shouldn't be too hard, and then I just need to work out killing QBD. Still, he should know that polypore/godsword/hand cannon won't do it, and they're the level 75 ones. I definitely can't afford level 80 armour, so I'll be sticking with what I have on that front. Brink of Extinction is nonetheless a rather hard quest, especially when you face more than one combat triangle side at once and can't realistically use melee.

Its the only quest I haven't completed. Seeing as I'm on 07 these days its not too annoying but its really gonna get me when I switch back!

Not true. Here's a guide for doing it with batwing and barrows equipment: 20-21-623-64211941

 

It just requires you to exploit the combat triangle and have a basic understanding of abilities.

Am I the only one who noticed the question about holiday events? Because right there, they have to get on and put more than 1/8 of an ass into holiday events.

 

And now to go find some other place to go off-topic.

Just because it can be done in batwing and barrows doesn't make it easy. The major problem is that you can't hit them effectively. I was already using a very similar method to this and fully understand the combat triangle and abilities, but that in no way makes it 'not hard'.

Ok, but just because it's hard doesn't mean that it should be patched. The quest should only be patched if something is fundamentally wrong with it. The fact that average players with average gear were able to complete it indicates that's not the case.

Hum, just because the chap writing the guide had 15m and not maxed stats doesn't mean he's an average player in terms of skill. It seems to be more difficult to me, and while I'm aware that doesn't mean it must be patched, it won't stop me wanting patches. It seems a lot of players are finding it very difficult, which suggests it has got harder. Today I've died 3 times attempting the 6th room and I feel confident that while my micro can improve, what really makes the difference is a chunk of luck, because my weapons are not accurate enough.

You'll have a higher sense of accomplishment when you finish it. You don't want an easy game, those are boring...

You're right, but that doesn't stop me wishing for the gratification of a quest cape.
