The Einherjar

MMO Viking needs a name for his new EQ2 crew.  I am going to go with Einherjar.  In norse mythology, the Einherjar are those that have died in battle and are brought to Valhalla by valkyries.  In Valhalla, The Einherjar eat their fill of the nightly-resurrecting beast Sæhrímnir, and are brought their fill of mead from the udders of the goat Heiðrún by valkyries.  The Einherjar prepare daily for the events of Ragnarök, when they will march with Odin to battle the frost giants, the enemies of the gods.  MMO Viking’s crew of Einherjar ran a bunch of Sentinel’s Fate instances today.  Beo actually parsed 2nd place to the warlock today on one of the fights which is nice to see some progress in that regard.  I was getting tired of the Inquisitor and Paladin beating me on parses all the time, which definitely seemed unfair.  Beoromir does his best DPS on single targets.  On multiple mobs Reddranth does tons of DPS with his numerous AE attacks.  I really like the crew’s makeup.  Paladin at tank with awesome survivability and maintaining agro.  Inquisitor at the battle cleric position healing and dealing dps.  Defiler as another healer with fantastic wards for alllies and dots and debuffs for enemies.  Dirge for more excellent DPS and lots of buffs for allies and debuffs for enemies.  Brigand as the best single target debuffing in the game and good DPS.  And last but not least the Warlock, the Master-blaster, master of AE’s and DPS.  I need to get a screenshot of The Einherjar all together but they are hard to get to stand in one place long enough without running off into another glorious battle!
