Vault of Glass HM

Anyone need to get the Eye of Atheon for the No Time to Explain still, want a try at a Y1 Vex Mythoclast, want to go down memory lane, or just have never done the Vault of Glass in hard mode yet and want to?  

 

SCwrr and I have done VoG once in normal mode, and would like to go back in and give the HM a run.  I've talked to a few of you and there seemed to be interest, so here it goes....

Next Saturday, July 9 at 8pm eastern.  Anyone interested?

You know I'm interested. Might as well do another run only to be denied the Vex.

Great!  Looks like we have a team of 6.  Deep & Achy let me know if it looks like Saturday is a no go. If anyone else is interested, throw your name up in case anyone cannot make it.

8 Eastern is perfect for me.  Gives me 3 hours to play.

If you see me on and need a person send me an invite. Love VoG and have run it plenty of times on both normal and hard mode.

Thanks Soul, will watch for you if anyone cannot make it. I'll have to watch those vids.  I watched a couple recently just to refresh my memory of what I did the only time I've been in, its all coming back now. I'm looking forward to going back in. I liked that raid.

Quick question for everyone, anyone killed a gorgon yet?  I noticed there is a grimoire for it, went reading and found a reddit thread that you can kill 1 to get the card, then the others become immune.  Also found mention that the treasure doors close (?).

Yes you can kill them. I have only attempted to kill one per run though, so not sure about killing more.

Everyone unloading heavy on a Gorgon will kill it.

Don't forget the heavy ammo trick right before doing the jump puzzle. (return to the Gorgon maze area from the jump puzzle area, and heavy appears in your inventory.)

Can help with Vog easy or hard, and can run the relic...

Have been in a fireteam that killed more than one Gorgon. I never would have thought it possible... Exotic swords FTW.

Sounds like a challenge... the 6 raze-lighter challenge.

I've been pulling what few y1 weapons I have in my vault out lately and patrolling with them or taking them into the crucible lately. I've probably confused a few people that I've killed.  I'm having a blast with the stranger's rifle, swordbreaker & Gjallie.  I've mentioned taking y1s into the vault to a couple already... if anyone else wants to bring y1s seems like it will be a good time to have some fun with them again.

There's really no huge advantage to using our 335 weapons in VoG. I understand damage is capped at the enemy's light and anything beyond is of no benefit. My understanding could be wrong though.

I think our higher light armor may be of some benefit, but I'm not sure about that either.

I might just pull out some of my Y1 raid weapons and armor and have some fun.

I posted on this quite a while ago... I can tell you that on the last couple of VoG runs, I and at least one other player shot Atheon with Sleeper Simulants, and we just melted him on a single pass. I thought the damage was capped too but I've never seen him taken down that fast.

I have run VOG once in year 2, and the higher light level weapons and armor did make it easier.

I plan to be available. I would also give up my seat to another more willing person.

My earliest availability changed to 9 Eastern. If there is still a spot at that time, I should be able to fill it.

Had a lot of fun last night.   OldNAchy, Darth Tabasco, CanHazChzbrger, RippingGester, SC  Fnord Ranger and myself managed to get in and  through the raid.   Thanks guys for helping us out, we had a great time.  And Cheese, you are a one man army, I was feeling a rather useless at one point on the right side during the conflux stage.  Had to hunt for something to kill a few times :)

 I had doubts I would get anything but a chatterwhite again, as the raid was only handing out energy but I ended up with a couple of helmets & a sparrow, and of course a hard mode completion achievement.  I believe Cheese  got an ice breaker out of the exotic chest too. 

After VoG, Cheese had to leave but SoulTerror joined in and we went and tackled Golgoroth.  Achy left afterwards, but  5 of us continued on and 3 of us got to try our new, fresh out of the box Malices from last week.  They made quick work of the daughters.  We gave Oryx a couple of runs too before we needed to stop.  If anyone wants to tackle Oryx look for us online, we have a checkpoint and it is Oryx Challenge this week, a calcified that Fnord and I still need.

Anyway, great time last night, thanks for the games.  VoG is a lot of fun, and I'd be quite willing to jump in again soon to keep the memories flowing.

Yep, thanks for the compliment. :D The conflux stage is the one I most remembered well from past VoG raids. Annoying but fun. And yeah, I got a 160 Icebreaker, though I teased Darth that it's a 335 Icebreaker. Don't we wish for that kind of rarity?!

My raid team is going for the Orxy challenge on hard mode tonight. Incredibly frustrating after the last couple days worth of trying different methods to complete. We kicked out a player for immature antics. :/

I still really enjoy VoG, so we need to plan these Year 1 raids often. I still have stuff I'd like to get out of Crota too, but I'm still hunting down that elusive Vex.

I ran VoG with all Year 1 weapons - Fatebringer, Ice Breaker and Hezen's Vengeance and it was awesome. I wanted to run my VoG armor, but it basically took my Intellect, Discipline and Strength down to Tier 1 status, so I decided that would not be fun. 

I had some concerns we weren't going to be able to take down Atheon, but it ended up we only needed two good runs through the timestream and he was done. 

The more raids we can run as a group the better. I'm hoping we'll be able to do the new Rise of Iron raid "blind". All the other raids I've done either with somebody experienced or having watched streamers. This time I'd like to try it with no spoilers.

Doing it blind is on my to do list too.

You should probably start gathering your team now and setting days/times.

You already know the husband and I are in for that blind run.  That is on the need to do list.  Avoiding any spoilers will be the hardest part. 

Doing Vog &  Crota more often is on our todo list.  Y1 gear, but its a lot of fun and I really have been enjoying some of the old guns lately. 

We also want to go into Crota in HM too.  We have the precursor guns to the necrochasm and would like a shot at the crux of crota to get that Y1 exotic.  So Saturday night Darth, CE?   I guess I should start a new thread for that raid :).

Oryx kept throwing us left curves last night. One set of 4 bombs failed because of us but the other 2/3 were a mystery. Always a tiny sliver remaining.

Maybe myself and Ripping weren't distracting Oryx properly. I'm not sure what more I could do besides continuously shooting at him.

KalSC, SC Ranger, OMG Caesar, DEEP NNN, Chaos Qc, AARP and Ripping Gester all participated. Thanks everyone.

The videos I just watched, we did it correctly. We could maybe have exploded the bombs a few seconds sooner after Oryx staggers.

I learned the bomb runners cue is when Oryx staggers then the runner with the longest run calls for detonation. That's seems a bit simpler.

 Fnord ran across a reddit thread that states we can do the bomb run up to 6 times and have 24 bombs on the ground at once before he will enrage.  We were having no trouble getting the ogres down, however, we could do an extra bomb run.  Its a 16 bomb minimum challenge, so if we have 20 down and a couple do not go off we should be fine.

We still have an Oryx checkpoint we can use if anyone wants to give it a shot tonight.  Fnord and myself will be around, I believe RippingGester said he would be after 8 or 9pm, so would need 3 more. Those of us from last night wouldn't get any loot since we finished him last night, but hopefully we would get the bonus challenge loot, and I'd still like a shot at the challenge mode calcified for the warlock to get my 50th fragment.

That's an interesting way to do detonation, may give it a try sometime. My HM teams usually designate a caller who tells everyone to run to bombs (but not step in) after clearing all adds, then counts down and everyone steps in at once. Usually the person who is shooting at Oryx makes the call. That way there's no confusion about who's giving the signal, and we can be sure all the bombs get detonated simultaneously.

That is correct, you can detonate more than 4 sets of orbs, but it has to be at least 16. 

I ran with a group on Hard mode and one of the orb eating Knights got lost in the shuffle and took one of our orbs. That meant one set had 3 orbs while the other had 4 orbs. We just ran one extra rotation to get the number of orbs needed to do the challenge.

I might be available for a 20 bomb run tonight. I was considering that as an option. Glad to hear it works.
