King's Fall Raid, Fri, August 5

Sign up here for the King's Fall raid on Friday, August 5 at 9pm Eastern/ 6pm Pacific. No raid experience necessary, but you should be at least 300 light and have a decent, high-impact sniper, like the 1000 Yard Stare for sale at the Vanguard vendor. We usually run for about two hours more or less. ​If you need to change plans, we understand, but post here again as soon as possible so we can find a replacement. If there are already six participants, please consider signing up as an alternate. Stuff happens, even at the last minute.

SC Ranger & I are available if needed.  We would bow out if there is anyone who needs to do the raid or needs the challenge.

I can be there for any group needing to fill a slot. May need small tutorial on hard mode if that is being done.

It's a good week to try hard mode again, since the challenge is easily accessible (Warpriest). Gives us a nice option to achieve something big if we don't want to race to Oryx. So I am inclined to try that, if the team is willing. Maybe DEEP will let twist his arm to help out for a while, if needed. I know you're going to start loving hard mode one of these days, DEEP!

If you're short handed, I should be available this week. I'm sort of hoping you won't need me for HM but my arm can be twisted.

I'd like to see Achy get HM for helping us so much in NM. I think I might be an impediment to that, in the late stages of the raid.

Ranger & I are ok with either normal or hard mode, doesn't matter to us.  Or if we can get 2 raids running again, maybe a hard & normal mode one, whichever one needs us to fill out the team.

Would anyone mind if there is two teams going if my brother joined he hasn't done the raid yet either as we normally play together but can never get a group if 6 going as none of our real life friends play destiny or don't play it enough. He has done both raids previously with us on normal and hard modes so he understands mechanics etc of the game well enough. He is a 327 Titan and I'll even pre explain the raid to him :)

Since it seems that we are doing hard mode, this is my initial roster:

OldnAchy, KalSC, SC Fnord Ranger, aAdamToRemember, Ra Darkman, and myself (Krak64)

Alternates: DEEP_NNN, Duke12 (after 11pm)

I gather from DEEP's comment above that OldnAchy still needs a hard mode Oryx kill, so I am currently inclined to get as far as possible without worrying about the challenge.

aAdamToRemember: Would be fine to bring your brother in, but we should probably take him through normal first. Less chance he will end up hating the raid that way!

Oryx challenge hard mode in the week of Aug 16-22, FYI. Next week is Golgy challenge.

What hemihuman meant was that I need an Oryx kill to finish HM, not the challenge.  All the challenges can be run in NM.

I won't be available probably at all Friday night (maybe very late), but if you guys get the Oryx checkpoint and are trying to get the cheevo for Achy later in the weekend, I'd be glad to help.

Krak,  If we need him, or if we get 2 raids going, RippingGester would like to join in.  He still hasn't had his account approved on the forum yet, but I told him I would post for him.  He is interested in either NM or HM.   He still needs a HM completion too.

With DarthTabasco, aAdamToRemember's brother, and RippingGester, we are still missing a couple people for a second party. If we could get both a hard mode party and a normal mode party going, that would be ideal for multiple reasons. But at least I want to get a strong hard mode party going, since we have raid veterans who still need hard mode Oryx. I'll try to get chat going a little early tonight so we can check out our prospects for a second party.

We had two raid teams tonight again! aAdamToRemember, Agent1951, DEEP_NNN, MoonPie42, RippingGester, and Krak64 ran the normal mode raid, and got as far as a few tries on the Sisters. We had a lot of learning experiences, but some brilliant moments as well. Thanks for the game, guys!

Awesome! How late did you guys run? I know you were still going when our group ran out of time. Will try to be on tonight to help with Oryx if needed.

Helpful hint: Have two Titans with Defender bubble (Weapons of Light on) in the center area, help players holding on three plates by killing Ogres and Hive swords (only in HM). With bubbles on, you're helping three players and the relic holder with orb drops for supers.

With 2 Titans, better to use Touch of Malice with stack of a Weapons bubble and a Blessings bubble = quick and easy clear of the Ogres

Ogres weren't really the problem.  Had some issues with the light eaters.  We also had just some oddness.  Like last night I stood in my bombs but only one went off.  They were stacked nicely, I was definitely in the right spot.  I stood there, sacrificed myself (self-reviver) and only one went off.  Another time we killed the shade, came out of the "arena" and Achy died immediately for no reason. 

We tried the center strategy, but ended up moving the bubble titans on top of one of the daughter platforms.  Up there, they get a little more protection from adds, can hit the ogres just fine, and can see/help with any pesky light eater knight (or just that 4th one) much easier. 

Getting a height advantaged really seemed to do the trick for us.

I always preferred the set up on top of the pillars too when running Titan for Ogres, much better vantage point - especially for Hard Mode.

The thing that really hurt us Friday night was lag during that one run, that would have been our last, but an orb got eaten by a Knight. People were calling out the Knight, but I didn't see it - well it flashed on my screen around the platform and then was gone. Suddenly the team says he ate an orb and I'm looking and do not see the knight and still see two orbs. Then, the Knight suddenly appears on my screen in the corner and the orbs are gone. 

That was certainly "oddness" - aka "lag"...lol

We ran almost 4 hours.  Got to the War Priest in about 30 minutes, then hit the War Priest wall.  Took over an hour to clear.  Golgy and the sisters went pretty smoothly -- 2/3 tries for each.  Even got thru the piston jump puzzle in good fashion.  Oryx himself was not a good host.  We did get it down to 1 bomb but couldn't quite get him down.  I called it around 12:45 but pretty much we were all tired.  Regardless the run was a lot of fun even with the frustrations.  Lots of laughing.  Soul even had 6 watching his Twitch stream at one point.  I pointed out that they probably wanted a good laughcheeky

I will definitely be around this evening to finish him off.

After another try Saturday night, we finished off hard Oryx this Sunday evening with Hammerdrake, KalSC, OldnAchy, Ra Darkman, SC Fnord Ranger, and myself. Congrats to OldnAchy and Ra Darkman on the achievement!
