High Beam’s Hijinks – Skull Speed Drills
So a couple of days ago I decide it’s time for High Beam to
head to Perez Park and Kill Skulls to get the badge. I haven’t been sweating it
because at level 50, these cats are just no challenge.
Anyway I enter Perez Park via the Steel Canyon gate and there are like four heroes between levels 6-8 trying to Kill Skulls and they are not doing well. I check them out and they are all Defenders. They are keeping afloat because one was empathy, but the bubbler was low on endurance, there was a Kinetics who just flailed around and a Psychic that was currently face planted. And there are like 20 Skulls just wailing on them, including a Bone Daddy.
I send a Local chat asking if they need a little help and they were like, “please do”. So I drop a single Explosive Blast into their midst and drop all but one of the cats (everyone has a 5% chance of missing dammit). So afterward we chat for a bit while the empathy waits for rez to recharge. Turns out they were on a Kill Skulls hunting team that had a Blaster and a Tank, both apparently in their mid 30’s who formed a team and then proceeded to herd a big mob of skulls, then drew them to the defenders, then dropped the team and bailed.
That was not money. I asked them what the names of these asses were and they could only remember the Tank, Juggernutz. I scanned the online list and found nothing. Anyway they were going to bail from PP and I was feeling bad for them so I offered to run with them and Kill Skulls. Naturally they were wary and I understood, but my natural Babeness swayed them. So I start running up and down the streets, remembering to keep them in range. I was dropping Explosive Blasts and Energy Torrents, and just to show off, I pseudo-herded a heap of Skulls and dropped a money metal Nova on them.
I got applause for that one.
Anyway after about 5 minutes, my badge popped but I was in the groove and kept pummeling Skulls till they all got their Badge. But I was in the zone and piled on and whacked a bunch more Skulls until they all got their Bonecrusher Badge (Bone Daddy’s). Finally they had to leave, thanked me profusely and said that the Babes rule. Then they left.
And I felt sad. I had been getting such perverse glee pounding the crap out of these bad dudes that were absolutely no challenge to me. In fact I should have had XP taken from me for doing it. But I also felt pretty good helping these cats out.
