Over Age 50 Raids

Rules, no steenking rules. Except ...

1. Over Age 50 2old2play member/friend minimum (but short handed can circumvent this).
2. Level 26 and higher plus some Legendary weapons in hand.

I'd prefer not to be Fireteam leader because of Halo activities and time zone.

Start organizing. Go.

************************************************
DECIDUOUS DUKE HAS OFFERED TO START THE FIRST RAID AS OF TONIGHT/OCT 17.

I'm Level 27 Titan sub-class Defender. Willing to lead Raid -- unless someone who has done it already (I have not) would like to do so.

List level, guardian, class, console preference and preferred date and times and let's see what we can come up with. Mine are below. Send me a FR request if I'm not on your list. XBox live messages go to my smartglass, so I will see them instantly even if I'm away from my XBox.

Console preference: XB1 1st choice and XB360 2nd choice (prefer XB1 unless DEEP gives in and forks over the cash to get the XB360 version :-) ).

My availability:

1st choice: tonight 10-17-14 9pm EST (10pm DEEP time).

2nd choice: tonight 10-17-14 8pm EST (I can rush my dinner if necessary)

3rd choice: tomorrow 10-18-14 9:15pm EST

In general, if no-one is available this weekend:

Fridays after 8pm (prefer 9pm) EST

Saturdays after 9:15pm EST

Wednesdays (with advance notice) after 8pm (prefer 9pm) EST.

Welcome aboard, OnA!

And just a reminder to others: I believe Level 26 is the preferred minimum level for the Vault. Anything lower will be maximum frustration.

Update: for tonight (Oct 17), I'm going to log-on to XB1 soon after 8pm ET and, after picking bounties and checking in on Xur, will go patrolling. Feel free to join me. If Fireteam is full, send me a message text "Raid." If you're on XB360 send message with text "Raid 360." If I get enough takers from either XB1 or XB360 by 9pm we'll make a go of it. If XB360 wins out, give me some time to log out, switch my router, and then log back in. If no full Raid crew, well, there's plenty of other things to do on Destiny adn there will be other days.

In the meantime, I'll monitor this site before I go online.

I'll be on and available on One or 360 just after 9pm (have to pick up my son from the grandparents so say 9:15). I'm lvl 27 Titan striker, a little worried that my weapons aren't up to snuff but will be picking up a rocket launcher from Xur in a little bit. Fridays after 9pm will be a good time for me for raids.

Just a quick comment for all of you since I've done the raid already, but don't worry most of the time all I could say, is where do I go and where do I place myself and so on..... and all I was in-charge of doing was get rid of the snipers. Not to discourage anyone because this is all for fun and games. But if you want to attempt the raid, take a part of that group of players and bring them into the Weekly nightfall level 28 of this week, and if they make it without dying they will have a small chance. Since the weekly level 28 is the easiest one yet, should be done in 1 hr30 min tops. You will then have an idea of how it is frustrating seeing your guns doing so little damage, and you really have to know the differences in Arc or fire or void damage to get rid of your enemies. To even think of going into the raid, your guns should be maxed out 300, including an exotic gun,.... and at least a level 28 with 1250 or more of protection(lite). That is a note from my son standing behind me while I'm writing this comment. He knows,,... he does the raid a min of twice a day on Hard with friends his own level, the type of level if 1 player dies you start all over,... yes everything over. Normal is not challenging enough for him anymore, they run through it in 38 Min,... note that the first time it took them 8 to 9 hours. So be ready if you have not done it yet, that you will not finish it tonight, but no problem as long as the leader does not quit and you have till 1 week to do it. 5 Levels,.... good luck,... I know I enjoyed it.

Oh by the way, it's good to have 2 Hunters + 2 x Titians + 2 x Warlocks

Another thing, as I was eating dinner with the family something was bothering me about the timeframe you will have to do the RAID, I thought it was 7 full days, 1 week but I as everything resets Tuesday morning at 3:00 AM Eastern time this will be your limit to finish the raid. Then you will have to start over.

I'm going in today just to look at all that again. Might just be we were too weak. Etobicoke is beween 20-26. I think we were short on Legendary weapons too.

What ChaosQC said. Can't say I wasn't warned by him beforehand:-) , but sometimes you have to actually hit the brick wall to find out how hard it really is.

To sum up and add a couple items of my own:

Required (or strongly encouraged): Weapons at 300. My highest was 248. My current highest is the newly purchased Exotic "Truth" rocket launcher, which is presently at 260, so has a some upgrades to to.

Required (period): Nobody under Level 26. It's the lowest level where your hits will cause any noticeable damage.

Required (or strongly encouraged): Practice and success at Weekly Nightfall a must. Deep and others have finished them, but I have not, as yet.

Required: (or strongly encouraged): no less than 6 Guardians.

Thanks for turning out, Deep, Blam, OldnAchy, Etobicoke, and Skinnie! A lot of lessons learned, I think. I'll be working on weapons and that Nightfall Strike.

Yeah, ditto Chaos's comments, we need to gear up more. Duke, Deep and I tried the nightfall strike and wiped before we got to the boss. 

i 'm thinking another run at the nightfall would be prudent, will be on around 3-4 pm if anyone is interested.

Yeah, from what Tonee told me, we were on track to open the gate but were not strong enough to keep the switches activated long enough. At least we were smart enough to figure it out.smiley

Nightfall is not a neccessity but if you can complete it, you must be strong enough.

Im only 43, but if you guys are short, feel free to ask me.  I dont need the loot and I wont drop spoilers unless you want them.  I just think the raid is great fun and like to do it.

 

Also, you should pick one purple primary weapon that has reasonable range and work on fully upgrading that.  A good AR or pulse rifle is what I prefer, but some folks pwn with Scout Rifles and Hand Cannoms too.  That alone will help greatly.

Saw one post that suggested ignoring the center sync plate all together and focus on the left and right with two teams of 3 focusing only on the Minatours except when all Minatours are down or the others are getting pesky.  Only the Minatours can drop the sync plates and the ones normally moving to the middle can be refocused to the left or right.

Alright finished diner, ok so if you guys where talking about the first level / wave,... well this is the easiest part and you will need to get the 4 best players with the best guns and set two of them on the left and the other 2 on the right, the other 2 will be in the center. You need to protect these zones till the lite middle tower is complete and opens the door for you. Then there is your first chest on the road to the next level which is 3 times more difficult and so on as you change levels.  Hope this helps

Just found this thread...

I'm available for strikes and the raid on xbox 360, working on a 26 Titan Striker, Defender nearly finished too.

You can post in the "360 Thread" stickied near the top of the Destiny forum too, There are several 2o2p players* with high 20's guardians listed in there. (*but may be too young)

I'm a "young" 40, but please drop me a message if you need another player for the Raid. I still have yet to really get a good crack at it, so I'd love to help.

Thanks.

PS; This will be in Halo4 grp since we can be 16 in the room.

PSS; No, he will not take you into the raid, since he finds this boring now and not challenging anymore,... he is waiting for the next Version of Level 31,32,33,....ect with the new Raid comming out,... yes twice as rough as the Raid now.

Chaos: Do you mean tonight as in Monday night 10-20-14 or Tuesday night 10-21-14, the regular Over-50 Halo 4 night? (10-21-14 also being an Over-40 tournament night).  This would be a verbal discussion held on Halo 4 XBox 360? (mentioning the 360 part in case any XB1-only over-50 folk are reading this)

Sorry let me be more clear, thanks Duke for pointing this out... I meant Tuesday at 11:00 PM Eastern time after the Over 50, on the xbox360

 

PS; Duke by the way I created another Hunter to play with you and Minitor I believe  at level 7. :)
