And here is Isz Ebrietas. By far the hardest fight I’ve faced in this BL4 run, although followed closely by Abhorrent Beast and soon to be beaten by Pthumerian Descendant.
I’d like to send special thanks to @whiteone for the absolutely priceless info about lower-level gem farming. I built myself a better idea over time, but this run would have been so much harder without your advice to begin with!

Falling in love with Isz all over again. That place is so mysterious, beautiful and calming (okay except for those Brainsuckers).
Ball Bruiser from fromdusttomist is one handsome stallion. And I might have fanboyed a bit during the stream, where my dear friend, Twi, drew him… So here he is~ With Dark Wing reacting JUST like I’d probably do!
This little twink is almost complete! My Saw Spear still needs some work (I’d like to have % phys ATK at full HP as secondaries on both of those radials instead of flat phys) but I’m pretty happy with my HMS. I was mentally ready to farm Loran and Isz Amygdala for hours but then I got that awesome triangle with the super rare secondary effect on my first Isz Amygdala kill (it’s a shame it’s not an Abyssal, but eh, I can’t have everything in life, and this is still better than 98% of any other Nourishing Abyssals I could’ve gotten instead) and the waning on my second Loran Amygdala. I want to gem up a couple of other weapons in the future but this is fine for now.
I’ve been posting on Reddit all day talking about the lore of The Old Hunters now that a lot of players have had a chance to play through the DLC, and here’s my ideas on the lore so far, and the nature of the areas. Extreme spoilers below the cut.
I didn’t realize Isz Root Chalice had a 4th Layer, after the Amygdala… I missed that on first play, but I can’t remember doing it or not, back then… Celestial Emissary was the 4th layer boss and I did get one-shot with a ball of Arcane, so not really a pathetic boss. xD I was expecting Ebrietas, though…
I can’t believe I spent all my time playing another standard Isz Chalice just for one Pearl Slug, when I could’ve gotten it at the Insight Bath. *Face Palms* xD
I did need at least one Ritual Blood (5), so it wasn’t completely a waste.
