One tough FireLady
A couple of days and a lot of guide-videos later I decided to take a chance at it again. So I followed the same old routine: get Drakan Medaillion, teleport to Darkmeyer, gear up and go for it. Of course it didn't go perfectly the first time out, so I died a couple of times. I used so many blisterwood stakes I ended up running out of them, even though I started out with over 800 of them. But after getting new blisterwood stakes - and calming down, because I again was yelling at my poor innocent laptop - I decided to try for the last time that day. I felt like I actually stood a chance, I was getting the hang of evading those bloody and darkness special attacks. I just hoped there wouldn't be many of them. I preferred the bloodveld killing. And I got lucky: Suddenly the guy changed into mist, and I found myself pouring holy water all over the place and luring the mist in it. And then, after all that time, I managed to defeat him. Suddenly Mr Vanstrom Klaus was dead. "Yay ME!" I thought.
So thus it came to it that, when I got 74 firemaking, I was completely convinced I could defeat the Char at the end of that quest. After all, I defeated that Vanstrom guy, right? Wrong. It started out fairly okay, with puzzles I actually liked, with red, yellow and blue powder making all kinds of firey patterns on the floor using Flint's pitch can. And the group of firemakers reached the final cave, and, it being a quest, I had to confront Char.
And I did.
And I died.
And died again. And again. And again. And again.
Frustration grew as I kept dying and I started yelling at my poor innocent laptop again (it's a miracle that thing never goes on strike) and wishing JaGex all kinds of real nasty diseases.
I decided to leave Char in the lurch for a moment. And do something simple, like woodcutting yews.
Nice and easy.
While in the back of my mind a tiny voice is nagging me about Char.
She's one tough Lady!
