King's Fall Raid, Fri, Feb 12

Sign up here for the King's Fall raid on Friday, Feb 12 at 9pm Eastern/ 6pm Pacific. No raid experience necessary, but you should be at least 290 light and have a decent, high-impact sniper, like the 1000 Yard Snare for sale at the Vanguard vendor. We usually run for about three hours more or less. Lately we've been running normal mode to see how far we can get. The Golgoroth Challenge will be up this week, so we will probably attempt that as well. 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 five participants, please consider signing up as an alternate. Stuff happens, even at the last minute

I'll put in for alternate in case I'm needed but I'm afraid my lack of SKILZ were holding back progress against the King :)

Nah, you weren't holding us back. In fact, by the end, I think you were as good as anyone. The whole point is to build our raid capabilities as a 2old2play community. I will be happy to see you on the roster if a slot becomes available.

I wouldn't say that at all.  Last night was certainly the furthest I've ever been in the Oryx fight and we were really, really close!

I say the next week War Priest Challenge is out we try hard mode. I know we can't get Orxy down yet, but I think we can take the War Ppriest down and try to get some 320 loot. We have been flying all the way to the sisters the last couple weeks. I don't' think attempting hard on Gorgy is a good idea unless everyone else wants to attempt it.

This week is the Gorgy challenge.  That should be doable.

Can I ask for a favor as an alt?  If I could swap in with someone once you get to Oryx and get the checkpoint, I'd really appreciate it.  I'll bounce right back out, I promise!

Hammerdrake: You are our first alternate, so there's a good chance you'll get the checkpoint without any special efforts at all!

This week Tenryuu N7, OldnAchy, DEEP_NNN, SoulTerror,Duke12, Hammerdrake, and myself ran the raid. We blew through the Warpriest's door, and took a couple tries each to get the Warpriest and Golgoroth down. The Sisters are always a challenge, but we got them down in time for several tries at Oryx. We tried the "two sets of eight bomb" strategy, and did pretty well with it. We would have had Oryx down if all the bombs had counted every round, but they didn't. I am supposing that insufficient fire on Oryx during bomb detonation might have been the culprit. Anyhow, we came extremely close to finishing!

I'm pretty sure insufficient fire on Oryx would have led to a clap and everybody getting wiped. 

Two sets of eight strat is good to run. Getting this down is good training for the hard mode Oryx challenge (one set of 16).

I wonder if one of the pairs of bombs were not close enough to each other, and if so, one of them might not have detonated when the Guardian stepped in. 

Congats on your progress. I hope to be able to join you all for a run soon.

BLAM: Just to be clear, we're not talking about the damage to Oryx to stagger him. Failing to do enough damage does wipe you immediately at that point. We're talking about the shooting of Oryx's chest done by the remainder of the team (i.e. two guys if all six are alive) while four of them are detonating their bombs. The received wisdom is that if this damage is insufficient, the detonating bombs do not damage Oryx. That's where I think we might have been lacking.

Oh, I see what you mean, Krak - haven't seen that specifically happen, but have seen just about anything else you could think of that could go wrong.

Are your guys with Touch of Malice the ones assigned to shoot Oryx? With that gun you should do enough damage with just one person firing.

We have some people with ToM, some without. I had one, but I know I got distracted a time or two, so the lack of firepower on Oryx was probably my fault.

Kudos. Wish I could have been there.

Any chance we can start a little earlier? Maybe some retirees can save time by getting the door open for this group?

DEEP: Glad you were there for most of it. I picked 9pm Eastern after careful consideration and analysis (i.e. it was a wild ass guess at what might work for the average 2old2player), but I am not against starting earlier if there is a consensus for it.

How about some of us peeps getting the door open earlier? Maybe go to the totems and stop? Anything to save time for the end-game?

My wife would definitely give me "That Look" if I left her before 8pm (Central) on a Friday night!  I can usually swing 8 because we're old and she's usually mostly done by then :)

Maybe if someone has a contact we can get a Warpriest checkpoint before Friday.  Would save some time and get a few more Oryx runs at the end.

I'm not above using a checkpoint if someone has one. As I recall, it took about two hours to get just the Oryx challenge done last time, and we started from an Oryx checkpoint. Can only be tougher if you are already somewhat tired from the earlier parts of the raid.

Yeah Orxy CP would be best. I'm going to see if I can grab one off LFG sometime before then.
