Aether Ray Whisperer...

I figured out the magic touch for capturing those Aether Rays: gentle windshear, turn on my Lightning Shield, ray goes down to about 26% health, ready to be wrangled. Didn't kill a single one today. Maybe the lumps of sugar in my pocket didn't hurt either.


  1. Hmmm, Wind Shear and Lightning Shield won't work for my Druid so I guess I'll have to go back there and try the sugar cubes.

  2. Hmmm...since Druids are one class I haven't figured out, but have started many times, perhaps thorns? Thorns and sugar might work?

    By the way, just after I started Skillet, I started two back-ups: Momokawa (named after some sake), and Ironnicole. It's not that I don't have faith in Skillet, I just don't know if I can take hours of watching the backside of a female Dwarf. (Nothing personal, Skillet.)

    1. Maybe I'll try the bare knuckle approach, she did get her unarmed skill to 400 before they got rid of that awful weapon skill!

      Oh, then go Skillet and Momokawa and Ironnicole!

  3. I regret to report that this morning's whispers turned out to be more of a cacophony- there were dead rays strewn all over Blade's. And, two other players were wrangling rays, too. Have no idea what the difference was, really. Same method, completely different results.

    Perhaps this little experiment is where the RNGs have their chuckle?

    I did tip over the rep scales to honored, so only 12,000 more rep points until revered!

  4. I am sorry I don't have any suggestions for you. I did this way back in BC, where resto druids are the suck at DPS anyway. I guess I would just punch them now, naked.

  5. Now, today - success - same formula, same technique, and it worked. No ray deaths, and no frustration on my part. Ah, the mysteries of pixels and spells!
