Shade bug in Kara

We ran into the wandering Shade bug in Kara again last night. Just before we engaged the first room of 4 shades I spotted a wandering shade and warned the raid that shortly we’d be mobbed by shades.

We killed the wandering shade.. and sure enought ~8 seconds later, 15 spell shades started streaming down the stairs at us. We ran.. some people actually made it out the door.. I wasn’t one of them. I died to arcane bolts through the floor while jumping the railing on the stairs leading down to the back door.

To be truthful, I probably would have made it except that right at the beginning of the run fiancee asked if I had fraps running.. so after I turned it on I keep trying to flip the camera to get a good view of the chasing shades.. instead of just running my butt out of there.

I looked over the footage.. and frankly it reminds me of the Blair Witch project. There’s glimpses of shades.. and a lot of running (there’d be screaming except I’d stopped recording sound earlier that night). All that’s missing is a closeup shot of Tatia’s face with a snot bubble while she blubbers about “they’re chasing me”.

I’m not planning to post it.. it’s just not a good example of “ah-hah! Exciting bug wipes raid.” Besides.. I’d like my first movie to be less humiliating.

    My favorite variation of this bug is ‘dissatisfied audience rushes stage’ after the Opera event. Everyone’s a critic!
