Best performance yet! smiley

We never lost one Standard in the Castellum. We managed to get runners in and out of the loop at least twice. We were so shocked to be in a second round we were a mess. Moonpie's controller kept failing by starting a super instead of a melee. 

We ended 20 min early when Adem West lost his internet.

Progress over 50 style: newer, more creative ways to fail! :-). But seriously, great to hear that things are moving along!

I hope Torrent is correct. It's the only way I've gotten an NF so far. smiley

I think there is a mistake, since these settings mirror last week.

No mistake, confirmed the modifiers are Torrent and Timewarp:Zero Hour (no time extensions). Still have Rat King quest to complete, this might just be the week to get it done.

We are destroyers of 'some' lanterns and a lot of Bathers. We managed to get into a second round a few times. Getting better each time.

What time?

I'm working late today so won't be on until around 10 eastern. I got this done last night (had 8!!! minutes left on the clock) so I'm just offering to sherpa folks through it.

I just committed to help my brother-in-law run this, but will be on for several hours and am happy to help any and all. You basically have 6 minutes to complete it successfully, so even with wipes shouldn't take long to do. 

Message me on XBL this evening if you want to give it a go

Achy/Blam/Hammer @ 10 eastern then?  I assume you don't have the Rat King yet Achy?  I'm anxious to finish that quest up.

Also, Achy did you say that you needed to do the strike on Nessus for Sturm?  If we clean up the NF real quick, maybe we can knock that one out too.

Many of you raided with CanHazChzbrgr and will enjoy reading this: https://www.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGame/comments/78wvb8/a_small_clan_of_deaf_gamers_just_beat_calus_for/

Scroll down to the comments if you want more details on how it was accomplished.

Not official, but it looks like the game will get Xbox One X enhancements after all. https://twitter.com/TrueAchievement/status/923566315998208001

For those that may not be aware, if you are using a 4K monitor or TV you can upscale game output now from an XBOX One S.  You can also run with HDR if your TV/Monitor accepts that.  Native mode is 10 bit color (HDR10) but it can simulate HDR with 8 bit color.  My monitor is 4K but not HDR, but even with that, when I set up 4K upscale I definitely noticed the difference.  Can't wait for the XBOX ONE X.

I should be on a couple of minutes after 10.

Good news -- we finished NF with about 7:30 left.

Bad news -- I was the only one with the Rat King quest unfinished so I didn't get it.

I have it Achy. If we don't get enough to raid tonight, then perhaps we could give it a shot.

I feel so bad about that.  If you and Darth both have the quest, I'll be happy to try and help you knock out the NF again.

Grenades, grenades, grenades!  It's hard to remember how often you can use them.  We tried with Hunter/Titan/Warlock and ran out of time.  Switched to Titan/Titan/Warlock and had 7.5 minutes left.  Those double pulse grenades and the better resilience of the class made a huge difference.  Also, try to find where you can cut corners, like the lower tank in the big hanger area can be completely ignored.

Not sure if it requires at least 2 or all 3 of the fire team to have the quest step.  Anyone know for sure?  Btw, as Hammer said above, when we set up as 2 Titans and a Warlock we finished with 7.5 minutes left, even after stumbling a bit here and there.  Definitely the easiest NF so far.

Update:  All members must have the quest step or have completed it on the character in the run.  Wonder if that was the problem last night when Art switched to his Titan.  Regardless, good to know.

Raid review. We were down one player and were lucky enough to enlist dr jojo. Castellum melted before our firepower. The royal pools continues to be a challenge but we are improving. Tonight we changes emphasis from plate holding to staying alive. Seemed to help.
