hall-of-monuments

An American soldier standing at the podium in the interior hall of Monument to the Battle of the Nations (Völkerschlachtdenkmal) in Leipzig after the city fell on April 18, 1945.

A large monument erected in memory of the victory over Napoleon in 1813, was one of the last bastions to capitulate to the Allied Armies.

One hundred and fifty German SS soldiers with ammunition and foodstuffs stored in the structure to last three months dug themselves in, but were blasted with artillery and defeated.

I just spent four solid hours running The Shadow Nexus challenge mission for five Hero Armor pieces. 

Up to 17 Hall of Monument points, aw yes. The next things on my list are:

- Five more minis including one Unique mini.
- Two more prestige armor sets with one being Vabbian armor.
- A Destroyer weapon.
- Six more runs of Glint’s Challenge mission.
- Level the Phoenix pet.
- Capture the Black Widow.

So I’m gunna be needing rubies and sapphires. Minis. Gold…

But it’ll put me at 24 points (and the Ice Lord’s Diadem [!!!])

This is a lot of work.

The Eye of the North is an ancient, huge tower in the Far Shiverpeak Mountains, with architecture matching that of no known species, and now in ruins. It is topped with a hollow spire, the uppermost part of which has always appeared to be either incomplete or broken off. The Eye contains two rooms - the main interior of the tower, which is large and empty save for ghosts and an asura gate, and the Hall of Monuments, which is full of statues commemorating the deeds of the long-dead hero who defeated the Great Destroyer as well as an ancient Scrying Pool.

Behind a façade of sculpted concrete, serene living spaces and monumental halls create a dynamic spatial interplay of spare interiors in which the main decorative element is light.

It’s finally done; I’ve achieved 30 points in the Hall of Monuments.

Thanks to wanderlust-through-tyria, I was able to get a Destroyer Weapon to input my final point. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!

I also, again, would like to thank [Oops] and everyone else who has helped me to achieve this!  I LOVE YOU ALL 5EVER!

Now, I will work on my final task for Guild Wars: taming a Rainbow Phoenix.  I am one title short of receiving ‘Kind of a Big Deal’, and I plan on achieving this with the 'Protector of Cantha’ title.

Time for me to work on those last three Mast Rewards…

fml - rage quit rant

So after my failed attempt at vanquishing (160 out of 163 before it decided to send me to a god damn outpost and vertually strip me of my two hours of work), I had managed to apply Dunkoro to my fellowship monument. I was eager to see my number rise from 19 to 20. Well, until I get 2 more heros in, it wont. So fuck. 

Then I decided “Hey I have enough materials for elite armor, I’ll just get my stoneforged.” Well I sold a bunch of stuff, got 60K and got my awesome armor. Put it in my HOM and guess what, I need one more armor before my count goes from 19 to 20. I JUST WANNA DO SOMETHING GOOD ON MY OWN GAH!
