planning the next raid

This week's raid went so well, I'd like to try again next week, Friday October23, at 6pm Pacific / 9pm Eastern. Since we've proven we can knock down the Warpriest's door, we should see if we can take down the Warpriest himself this week. To accomplish this, you should have a light level of 280 or higher plus a good sniper rifle (the 1000 Yard Stare from the Vanguard vendor works fine for this). Post below if you would be interested in going along. If you're interested, but aren't at 280 light level or don't understand how to get a good sniper, you should also post here, and I will try to help you get ready.

I should be able to make it. SoulTerror08 is my GT. That's also the sniper rifle I am using. (100 yard stare) :)

Ok, now you confused me. Is there some Soul Terror sniper rifle floating around that I never heard of?

Edit: Geez, new glasses time for me. I totally misread Soul's second sentence.

I'm up for it again! Had a great time last night! Do all 1000 Yard Stares have the same baseline stats with different perks? I've gotten three of them in drops but all have SUCK rolls for the perks. I've been thinking about getting the one from the Vanguard vender as it seems like it has much better roll of perks then mine.

I think it's the second most powerful sniper. It has enemy bonus perks which guns like IRENE do not. I carry a variety of them with burns and bonuses.

Yes, all 1000 Yard Stares have the same base stats, but (in general) different perks. The vendor version has particularly good perks for the raid. It's what I use, and I can recommend it. But a drop should be ok as well.

In.  Can't believe we got thru the ship jump puzzle as fast as we did!  I think opening the War Priest door should go faster next time as well.

Totally agree on both counts. Jumping puzzle went way better than average, especially considering that it was the first time through for some.

I'm in!  Had a ton of fun last night.  I was the baby light level at 288, but didn't think I slowed us down too much!

Lessons learned:

- Unsnapping the party app IS NOT the same as quitting the party app! - You have to tell your xbox NOT to randomly log you in with Kinect (when you aren't there!) while you are online, logged in and using another Xbox!

 

PS - conversation last night reminded me of something I once heard: "My vasectomy didn't work.  We kept making babies, it just changed the color of their skin!"

Good times for sure. I glad we were finally able to be deemed worthy to face the Warpriest. 

The 1000-Yard Stare is a very good sniper with user-friendly base stats. Even if the perks are the greatest, it's still preferable in the raid over CQC weapons like a shotty or fusion rifle. 

I should be around this Friday for another try at the Raid.

Knee surgery tomorrow so I should be totally (and legally) doped up Friday night.  That should be interesting.

I hope your procedure goes well, Old! We'll blame the whole knee situation on the Warpriest and make him pay! Darned Warpriest.

Yes, I'll start a party up at 6pm Pacific/9pm Eastern tonight (Fri, Oct 23), we'll form a fire team, and roll! Provided they are available and interested, I will favor the people who rolled with us last week, then others who have expressed an interest, then other 2o2p'ers that happen to be online. This is just for practical reasons: we'll get further faster with the same folks, and getting further means more raid smarts that can be shared with the larger group. I hope I get a chance to raid with all of you eventually! Last week, something unexpected and awesome happened when DEEP started up a second raid party. There's no reason why we have to limit ourselves to one party.

I actually finished the Raid for the first time last night, so I'll be running one of my alternate characters tonight. 

I'm looking forward to giving it a shot again. Hopefully we can down the Warpriest tonight!

I'm still down to raid tonight.  Will do my best to be online by 9pm but it may be later.  If I'm online and there's an open slot please send an invite my way.

I might be available tonight for a raid. If not I might try to set one up for tomorrow. I just recently joined the site so I have only added a few of you so far.

Any trouble with the surgery? Too much or too little meds?

After Action Report

This week Darth Tabasco, BKVic, Hammerdrake, ver7igo, uamanchild03 (Darth's brother-in-law), and krak64 (me) did the raid. The Warpriest went down, and we came within a hair of killing Golgoroth as well. Quite fun, and hard to quit when we knew we were getting so close to downing Golgy. Next time, guys!

Some of us talked about using the Golgoroth checkpoint to try to finish him up this weekend. Regardless, let's try another fresh raid next week, Friday, Oct 30 at the same time (6pm Pacific/9pm Eastern)!

Sorry about last night, my connection to live went in the toilet and I kept getting kicked out of the party chat. Things got very glitchy as well. As soon as we went to orbit at the end it all cleared up and my little red nub of a bar jumped back to the big green one. Maybe I should have just went to orbit and tried to rejoin. I would be open to trying to finish this weekend as well.

Out of morbid curiosity, are you using a weapon with Firefly on it?

Matter of fact I think I was. I was using Hung Jury and I'm pretty sure it has it.

Thanks for the concern guys.  I received a hefty dose of antibiotic thru the iv during surgery and it slowly did a number on my digestive system.  By yesterday it felt like the stomach flu.  Feeling a lot better today.  Knee is doing fine.

Glad to hear the team made good progress.
