Old School Ragfire back when you had to kill naggy then Ragefire would spawn anywhere from 0 up 72 hours after Naggy was killed. It was a cluster their would be multiple clerics and guild forces waiting for him to pop and some clerics would lose their item they turned in because another raid force would kill him and get the dps kill. DM's would be called in to mitigate the mess. What a cluster.
To fix this they created the shard drops and turn in to occur in skyfire so clerics could spawn Ragefire,
Ah the reminescing of Old School...Stormfeather had to be the worse almost 72 hrs camping and in the final hour of about to call quits, I became victorious. Before that it was the Froglok for the FBSS... Stormfeather ruined me for long term camps, decided nothing was worth losing that much sleep over
I remember doing the epic for the Shadowknight 1.0 and it was mostly done in The Hole. I needed my guild to help for some of the battles but there was a lot of stuff to do beforehand and I had to trigger things first before I trouble the guild with coming to help. And The Hole was way too hard to solo, so I ended boxing more and more characters until I could reach the bottom level by myself. Getting through the undead town below was so hard because you would get in a tough battle and then just before you kill the massive golem or whatever, it would get completely healed by something in a nearby building... So you had to be really careful where to fight and preferably clear out some of the healers first. I wiped 100 times but made decent exp in there too. It was scary doing all that by myself. But now I think back at cool all that was. There is really no other game I know of that comes close to that kind of thing.
Jboots were not all that bad for me personally as i got them 1st drop for my Wiz, however i stayed and we spent the better part of a week working on the drop for the rest of the group even resorting to a marathon 40 hours straight in the room camp for a pair. my current omg this is a pita camp though has got to be the sebilisian satchel, i've ID'd a spot they do drop (got one camping something else) and would love more, shame is i've been told that it takes on average 30-40 hours per bag, and frankly i'm not sure i trust those figures cause last time i was there for 3 days straight and no drops
