Raid today?

I'm trying to set up a raid with my guild for tonight. Since Sunday is a slow raid day, there may be empty slots. Let me know if you're interested. Details below. I will also put this in the LFG section on the site, but I'm not confident people are actually looking there.

Time: Sunday, October 4, 8:30pm Eastern

Duration: 2 hours

Checkpoint: fresh raid from start

Minimum light: 280 (You can do it lower, but it's less fun.)

Expectations: We won't get in super deep. Just to the first few chests. You'll get shards, and maybe something nicer if you're lucky. You'll get a chance to help open the raid portal, jump like a madman, and maybe kill a Warpriest.

I wish I had seen this as I would have liked to jump in the Raid.

I have yet to venture into the new Raid.

Oh well...maybe next time.

Still working my way up to be high enough. Think I'm 277.

Same here.  Taking a little longer because I am leveling up 3 characters, one of each.  With the weapons I have, all are a little over 270 now.

Reached 279 on the Titan. Taking it _very_ slow with the other two.

Any tips on efficiently getting to 300+ from those who have made it that far? (I may know most of them already, but there might be something I've missed, so feel free to share anything, no matter how seemingly obvious).

Really the best way I found was to run strikes.  They seem to have the best rate of loot drop, and since leveling up your light is basically a lottery, you need the largest number of rolls you can get.  I've had 297 blues drop when I was still in the 270 light range.

Also, Court of Oryx.  I dont know about everyone else, but the Ghost and Artifact slots were the ones holding me back for the longest.  The Court quest gives you a 300 artifact and there is a very nice 290+ "Bold Red Shell" that drops there (maybe it drops other places, but I have only gotten it in Court of Oryx, and its dropped there twice).  I seem to get more ghost and artifacts drops in the court, on average, than any other place.

The new raid is fun.  The spoiler free tip I will give is:  If you are a hunter, make sure to bring your Y1 jump boots exotic.  All classes should take a weapon or two that has the "lightweight" perk.

Good advice, Thorn. Unfortunately I was one of the guys who decided it was smart to save strange coins by not buying a "frivolous" item like the Bones of Eao. In my defense, as a relatively new player, I have never had surplus coins. The first time through the ship jumping puzzle, I got so frustrated that I went back to orbit and skipped over it. The second time I was able to do it. But it still takes me super long to get to the top of the vertical jumping puzzle before the Sisters.

What Thom said.... Plus you'll get a boat load of engrams

I have an Oryx checkpoint if there are any interested in doing this tonight before the weekly reset.

I still need my first Oryx kill.
