Well after a long hall, the Exodus team has once again claimed victory over the Black Abbot at Midnight (EST) June 5th! the 7 man team consisted of 2 Sorcs (Thriand and Kaara), 1 Wizard (Myself.. Bornwinter), a Rogue (Jak), Paladin (Zoltan), Fighter (Kegor) and a Cleric (Shoji). Congratz to the team with a very hard and dedicated time beating this raid, lets get some more in!!

Any particular reason theres no screenshot of your completion time? Or course theres a reason. And I think we all know what that reason is :/

grats!

The staff of the petitioner dropped, it was exactly the same except there is an addition concentration +5 on it and Bornwinter beat me out on the roll. (we all know born uses loaded dice)

This means that the items have changed, but so far it doesn't seem to be a huge deal

Grats guys - very impressive achievement.

I recommend you continue running the Abbot. In fact, your whole server should run it for at least the next few days anyway.

Lol, we have been working hard on the all the raids. After a WHOLE day of beating up the Queen, Titan, Shroud and Dragon, we figured, hey, why not, Abbot is bugging us and he deserves to die... well I would hope that fellow members of our Server go after this raid, but if you have not had allot of practice, just wait till we open the new raids and win the server race!

Well, screenshot shows 9 members in your raid team. OP mentions only 7....so my question is...why do the two things not match up. Either its a previous screenshot, or something is awry.

I'm not trying to me mr. negative, I just...I dunno usually prefer tightly wrapped packages and inconsistencies like this are distracting.

The other people joined to talk and weren't in the raid Only 7 were in the original raid and 8 in the second.

I mean really we can't invite friends to tell them about our victory. its been almost a year since anyone on this server has beaten this guy we were quite happy and wanted to spread the news.

Grats you guys.

But I sure hope you're all on timers for the rest of the raids. We've made a point in our guild of waiting until the new content is unlocked before attempting the Abbot. Ghallanda is in first place and I aim to keep it that way! :cool:

Ghallanda FTW!!!!!!

We have beat/practiced the Abbott so much it has become second nature. These Runs will soon go to Elite, but many more to come in
the next couple of days :)
Thx Again everyone!!

GOOOOOOO Ghallanda!! ;)

Now... back to the shroud. Tuesday morning timers should be clearing late tonight. ;)

I thought DDO Korea {Season II} had been running Abbot regularly... I've seen quite a few of them with Abbot loot... though maybe it's all from the prepuzzle days. Heh... I figured Abbot was the only raid that wasn't boring for them. ;)

LMAO yep I wondered why we didn't name it Fernia just by virtue of it not being a totally ******** name, what the hell is a Ghallanda anyway? Fernia is the Plane of Fire and a very tastey Festivus Cake as well. :D :D :D

I have some shroudage to knock out myself tonight if anyones on Hawaii time it will be kinda late. Hard to concentrate on that when there was a chest on the server somewhere I had yet to ever open!

Well a 7 man team probably spent most of their time in the puzzles not killing and respawning **** and Im guessing the poor guy left in the dirt...took a dirt nap for a while. A-DUH! You are hating because you obviously have no clue how this raid works and haven't attempted it enough to work that out for yourself.

Gratz Exodus you will continue to have the full hate of the haters for what they can't and don't even bother to attempt...once again. Here's an invite to this years Playa Haters Ball! See you in the new raid. Probably first...or will DDO Korea do it?

I can't answer this because I wasn't on last night when they ran it, but this isn't the first time Exodus has done it successfully... they also beat it after mod 5 came out before it was changed. As for the exact dates, completion times on the original defeats during mod 5, I'm not sure... Born may have archives of that somewhere maybe or maybe it's still on the forums and it didn't get deleted when they "lost" some of the older forum content awhile back during one of Turbine's maintenance sessions. I think some of the changes that were made to it are still in place, so if you are looking to compare completion times, I don't think you can do so between runs done pre and post the changes implemented after mod 5 cuz it's not the same run. Maybe it's because I'm female and I have an assertive nature rather than a competitive one, but I personally have never really cared about stuff like that... best times, who did what first, etc... just happy to see them complete it because it gives hope that what was once considered uncompletable and therefore was a useless endeavor on the part of the Devs is now completable again, and hopefully others will now be spurred on to attempt it so that this raid will actually see some use and not be wasted code. It shouldn't be an easy raid... it's a Lich for deities sake, and one on the verge of God-hood to boot, but there is no point to making something so difficult it's not completable or discourages people to the point they won't run it.

Well i look it at this with the way i wrote that..Like i first said was grats to them on beating it cause i know its a hard raid,And with me asking about the completion time was more on how the tactic they went at in it,like for example in the group i did it with what we did was if we did not get phase room on first try, we would recall out and redo, so i was looking to see more of the tactics they went with/compared to ours..:)
