    Re: Which companions work best against the Hydra?

    An hour or so ago, I fought the Hydra on my swashbuckler, Scar, alongside Fan Flanders, El Toro and Moresco de Valvida. It was a little worrying as time drew on, seeing just how much our health was waning—quite different from my musketeer's, privateer's and even my buccaneer's fights—but luckily, once again, there were no casualties on my team. Huzzah!

    Quick question: What are all the ways you can show pictures in a post?
    I've been using the "Insert Image" button for this thread, but none of the photos show in their original sizes, and they come up way smaller when you're logged out. I also recall using the "Attachments" button a couple times for some contests, but I didn't exactly like it. How do you post pics to show up in their original size (or close to), even for people who aren't logged in or aren't registered to be able to see them? Even @Willowdreamer sometimes posts pics that pop up and darken the rest of the screen, and I don't know how the heck she does it.

    Onto the pictures! Below—as always—of Scar's first and final attempt.

    Once you have your images uploaded into the post, preview it and double-click on the image. A popup window will give you options to resize or justify the image.

    After I fiddled around with the options that pop up as you said, I couldn't get it to go to the actual/original size. Do the photos always automatically resize at a certain point if they're too large? Or does specifying what size adjustments you want just allow the picture(s) to remain said specified size so non-members can view them the same as members can? By the way, thanks for the helpful info! Really useful to know.

    Pictures do have size limitations on the site, yes. Otherwise they'd break the frame and cause other havoc.

    Wink Re: Which companions work best against the Hydra?

    The last to fight the four-headed monster—and its h***spawn (censoring myself even though it's not a curse word; just to be safe!)—was my witchdoctor, and I'm glad it's over! My final pirate character ventured into the cave of the Hydra and emerged victorious. Huzzah! Luisa went in with El Toro, Kan Po and Old Scratch by her side. They stayed near her while I buffed for six rounds, give or take, before I had the two swashbucklers sprawl out.

    I had Luisa use Crow's Song on Kan Po; Old Scratch and I used Juju & Mojo Flow buffs in sync; and I used one extra Juju from my own gear and an extra Will boost from my pet frog whom grants Steadying Speech. Before we ever started buffing, I summoned Skeleton Hoplites, mine and Old Scratch's Skeletal Corsairs, and two (maybe three) from the "Mark of Death" doubloons; at least one level 65 and one 70, I believe. Can't recall which was the Warrior and Crossbowman.

    The absolute worst part about the fight—other than huddling up for approximately six rounds, of course—was having to deal with those blasted Cobalt copies; they kept blocking my line of sight! So much so that I ended up using Shadow Step to teleport near the Ebon head instead of simply killing it with Mournsong from across the board like I wanted to. Feh. All's well that ends well. Now onto pictures!

    Anyway, thank you so much to everyone who provided tips and suggestions! Whether I utilized them or decided to go with my own strategies, I deeply appreciate the help. Before even setting foot in Aquila, I heard the rumors of the Hydra and how the fight would/could glitch and cause time, effort and doubloons to go to waste if the Ebon never showed its ugly face. Now, having conquered the beast five times while solo, I admit it was silly of me to be as timid of the monster as I had been. To anybody who has yet to cross paths with it, I hope this thread (or this post, anyhow) squelched any fears you had about facing off against the Hydra. Alone or with friends, ye can do it, matey!
