But I actually timed making P100 with an important event in my life... my dissertation defense! So today, I also successfully defended my PhD thesis and now I'm officially Dr. Tekk Zero too! I had a great time, and my committee was actually pretty nice. I was studying systems neuroscience at Carnegie Mellon, and my dissertation was focused on the development of neural circuits in the visual system.
A big thanks to TekkaZerox (my RL identical twin brother), Worloega, Gcanum, and Theoldred29 for helping me make P100 tonight. I wasn't sure I was gonna make my goal, since I was only 5% into P99 when I started farming tonight. But you guys rock and we did it! And lots of monsters died tonight. I got a whopping 21 legs, which is pretty impressive for someone like me that tends to farm pretty casually. And to boot, I found a 3%cc/Dex mempo! ^_^
Could my night get any better? Apparently, I was wrong... and it got even better!!!! After I made P100, Gcanum gifted me one of his older 10 APoC Chant's Force!!!! It was like a +10k dps boost on my Meteor Reduction one. WOW!!! A big thank you to an awesome wizard and class act. I'm just stunned, but I guess I shouldn't. Gcanum's always been an amazing and cool guy!!! So I'll just say a MEGA thank you to gcanum and wear my new shiny source with pride! ^_^
And a big shout-out to the members of this community for all the encouraging messages tonight, as well as over the last few months, that have been very supportive of me while I was preparing for the big D-Day (dissertation day lol)! And now it's Loroese's turn to defend his thesis and officially become Dr. Loroese. Go-go Loroese!!!
