Flawless Raider

We've had some success over the past few weeks running VoG, pretty trivially tackling normal mode and dropping hard mode without too much trouble.  Is there any interest around here in shooting for the Flawless Raider achievement?  I'm thinking Crota's End would be the better choice, avoid those frustrating jumping puzzles.  If we can find a regular group and just focus on staying alive tactics, no rushing or chests or anything, I think we could get it figured out before too long.

What do you think?  I could do Mon or Wed nights, but prefer Wed.

I agree Crota would be best bet. To be safe we need a good hunter to sneak through the first part.

Interested.  Agree that we would need a good sword swinger.

We did the Flawless Raider achievement in the Crota raid on normal. Still took us 2-3 attempts due to dipstick accidents (stepped off a ledge, shot a rocket into a door frame, etc.). No one can die on the team.

I wouldn't mind giving it a go at some point too.

Everyone make sure you are in the 2Old2Play clan so that we can get that achievement as well.

I think I successfully coerced DoctorDoom71 to join us as well.

So we have:

  1. Hammerdrake
  2. SoulTerror
  3. OldnAchy
  4. DarthTabasco (didn't forget you this time)
  5. DoctorDoom71

We'll need to find one more by tomorrow night.  Also, as SoulTerror posted, let's all be in the 2o2p Destiny clan so those that don't have that achievement can earn it as well.  I've forgotten how to officially join the clan, but it is a little bit of a process, so if you haven't done it yet, please start looking into it.

To join the clan one must first join the 202p group on Bungie, then apply for clan membership.  Joining the group is easy, joining the clan requires approval from the admins and that may take a little time.  Recommend:

Join the group now,

Apply for clan membership

send Doodi a pm requesting approval.

I will try to be around tomorrow night, but no guarantees. Basically, if I'm not around, then fill my spot.

I'll have to try and see about getting in the clan.

No go on joining the clan. I'm already in the group, but when trying to set 2o2p as my clan I get a message that the maximum number of clan members has been reached and I can't join until others leave.

Sounds like some housecleaning needs to be done by the admins.

I had also sent a message to Badmin. He is going to see if they can clear out some of the inactive players.

LOL. I think we just need a few practice runs. Hell, we did 4 man it and killed him with 1 sword. Now Oryx really has a reason to be pissed at us since we owned his son.

I think it was a pretty good first attempt and refresher. We saw that at can run the whole thing in under 45 min, ever being careful. I think we'd do best with a full fireteam for the plates/bridge/totems/swords encounter. Maybe do some studying to figure out exactly what the rules are there. It's an odd run now, where every encounter gets easier and easier as the raid progresses, with respect to flawless raider.

Everyone up for another try next Wed?

If there is enough interest, we could generate a new 2o2p variant clan for those needing that achievement.

I am up for another try.  With a little practice I figure I can cheese the Abyss in the first or second try.  I was definitely getting comfortable with it last night.  If the chievo doesn't allow that then we still should be able to run the Abyss if everyone stays together as much as possible.

If you solo the Abyss it will still count, the only thing that matters for the achievement is that nobody dies.

I ran solar Titan with agility buffs turned on and was 'almost' able to complete the abyss solo at a near running pace and no cheese.

Gonna try (no guarantee tho) to make it for a flawless run tomorrow night if there's room.

Did a quick solo cheese trip (jumped the wall at the second lamp) thru the Abyss last night with my Titan, it was really quite easy.

Funny thing happened. No one showed up to raid, so in a fit of boredom, I tried Iron Banner with ra darkman and one other. Turns out I'm not awful at it like I expected. I'm going to have to try more of it! I'll post a new thread to try Flawless Raider again next week.

IB was a lot of fun last night. Trying to get other activates together during IB is always tough.
