View Full Version : Gingerspyce's Week in Videos: u29 first look and Hound of Xoriat tutorial!

Update 29 is here! For the past several updates, the High Lords of Malkier on Sarlona have captured "first look" videos as soon as the servers come up with new content. It's a lot of fun to capture our first experiences with new content and I hope you will enjoy the 2 Legendary Shroud flagging quest videos that we managed to make on that first day, before the servers came down!

Hound of Xoriat

This is a raid that not many people ran over the past few years, but all that will change now that it has gone Legendary! I think a lot of raid knowledge about this particular raid has been lost because many veterans of this raid's glory days are long gone and it just wasn't a popular raid after the level cap was raised beyond 20 a few years ago.

We've only run it on legendary once (we did LH) but it seemed to be exactly the same raid mechanics as heroic, so I wanted to highlight a couple of my older videos about HOX because a lot of people are going to want to learn it now and it can be a confusing raid for newbies.

For the past couple years, the High Lords of Malkier have hosted teaching raids in the winter and spring. In this video, we capture the HOX teaching raid we did on 1/24/15. There are 2 popular methods for doing this raid. One is the "H method" and the other is the "circle" or "O method" (the 2 methods are just different ways of mitigating trash). In this video we teach the H method. The video also shows the route through the Subterrane to get to the heroic raid. The legendary raid entrance is in the marketplace, so skip ahead to the 19:00 mark of the video to begin with the detailed explanation of how this raid works.


In another video I made last year I solo HOX on heroic normal (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phguC7UXqNQ). I wanted to include this video here as well so that people who are new to the raid can see more of what is going on. This video also shows the pathing through the Subterrane, so skip ahead to the 11:20 mark where I start talking about the raid itself.

Have fun with the new content and loots and I hope these vids will help the HOX newbies understand the raid a little better! :)

Much love,
Gingerspyce of Sarlona
