Templar Hard Checkpoint

Guys... I have a Templar Hard checkpoint. With a decent relic wielder, killing the Templar isn't hard. I'm a relative noob with the relic, but I am willing to give anyone here the checkpoint or help with a run. I know the drill. 

When everything goes as planned, the Templar can be killed in about 10 minutes. Once that happens, RNG rewards players with the first really good drop opportunity of the VoG raid - the Fatebringer. The RNG is weighted to give the hand cannon quite frequently.

For guns, the Hunger of Crota, Icebreaker and a good scout (or their equivalents) work well. If they're all at 365, all the better. The hard mode VoG is still at level 30. Lemme know...

I have a couple friends , including myself who love vault. I myself dont do the relic to often, but my friend trizev does. If you need bodies send me an invite, triz just had a baby so im not sure when he can be on. If you have a specific date in mind i can always ask ahead of time.

I would LOVE the opportunity to do this in an attempt to get the Fatebringer- which is about the only weapon I really still want. 

Are you running this tonight? I should be around if you want to try and get a group or at least let me get the checkpoint on my 3 characters...lol

Darth & Mega, you're both already on my firends list. Either tonight or tomorrow night preferably should work. Or, we could just schedule it for tomorrow night.... I'm mountain time.  Otherwise, if I'm on I can give you the checkpoint (drop into the raid, look around, point and dance for a few mins...).

Did you guys run this last night?  If not I am available to run this tonight.  Not a good relic wielder but I have run VOG hard a few times.

We ran last evening (Saturday) begining around 7:30ish-pm mountain time. Did two hard mode VoG runs from the Templar checkpoint onward to the end, a couple complete hard mode CEs and then some crucible. Deciduous Duke and his friend was with us for most. Sparty1992 had some network issues on the first VoG. It was a little flakey last eve for a while for us too. Was intense.... but a lot of fun. We waited for you Darth... We'll do this again. I no longer have the checkpoints, but I'm sure we will next week.

There is a way for two to get to the Templar checkpoint.  Need to check out the "how to" video again.  If doable it would be a nice way to bank the checkpoint.

I'll likely get the Hard Templar checkpoint again this week. We can try it again.

I'd like to say that Atheon's Epilogue is fantastic at 365. It's just like it was last year in the Vault of Glass before the auto rifle nerf. Love that gun. It works great to kill oracles and ads at close/medium ranges. The Swordbreaker shotgun at 365, from the CE raid, is death on a stick to Praetorians. The VoG void machine gun Corrective Measure at 365 is a blowtorch on steriods for oracles and Atheon. On hard mode, two teleports to either Mars/Venus, and bullet-hosing Atheon with CM in between ends the fight. Sat night, we all shot at Atheon, but it was a couple of CMs and a Super Good Advice that spun the dial. It's over quickly. Rockets work less well because Atheon tries to dodge the rockets, making it harder to make criticals with snipers/Icebreaker and machine guns. Don't shoot rockets and he mostly just stands there and takes it - while shooting at you.

I'll be on tonight.Send a message and we'll get the checkpoint transferred, at least. Would help to get it on a couple characters. If the stars align and we have enough people tonight - along with a good relic wielder, we can at least get past the Templar. Need two relic wielders for the pre-Atheon fight. ;)

We ran it a few times already this week (I ran it twice) from Templar on. It's about a 30 minute ride to kill Atheon when the stars align. Lots of guns, armor, ships, sparrows and chatter whites.

Planning to be on as well. If there is still space after the relic experts and hard mode noobs come aboard, will gladly accept an invite (had a blast last Saturday. Thanks!).
