So, my birthday was on Saturday. Everything went alright that day, with one very high disappointment toward the beginning. But enough about that, let's get to what this blog is really about.
About a half an hour ago, I was playing Symphony of The Night on my 360, which was being transmitted through my BRAND NEW 32" HDTV when something miraculous happened. Bear in mind that the save game I'm currently playing on is practically mint, barely been touched.
So I'm playing for a little while, getting through some sub-bosses and leveling, the usual stuff to be expected with SoTN, when I come to the first Doppelganger encounter. Now, as many of you are undoubtedly aware, it's a very early occurrence in this game. What you may not know, or remember, as the case may be, is that right before this battle are two enemies, both of them Axe Lords.
I've only killed two Axe Lords in the game so far (the two I just mentioned). So I defeat the Doppelganger and I go to the jump that I always try to make, but never do, right after the fight. I didn't make the jump. Instead, I landed down below, having to go back up through the corridor. I kill the first Axe Lord. Guess what he dropped.
A GODDAMNED AXELORD SHIELD.
I mean, I'm no mathematician, but general consensus is that of all the rare drops in the game, the shields are the hardest to come by. And here I get one after my third kill of an enemy. That's got to be some kind of record.
P.S: Please note that I was only level 13 or 14 when this happened.
