    Default A new channel for learning raids

    I accidently hijacked another thread by posting the channel in it so I figured I should just make my own thread.

    Our new channel is designed to help people, mainly newer ones, learn raids, learn how to lead raids, and teach people that you can be much more successful in a party if you work together. I've been leading raids for PUGs for awhile now, but have learned to really enjoy it. We rarely, two times in eChrono when we had bard DPS - and one barb - or no arcane, fail the raids we post, and I think a lot of people are really starting to pick up the little tricks that make raiding easier.

    If you are interested in helping Orien become a better server, not just gearing yourself out at the cost of others, please join us by simply typing the following into your little chat box:

    /joinchannel PanthrosPack Marquis

    Capitalization is important as are the spaces. If you have any questions, I will be sure to answer them here or in game on Indolore/Verlichte/Peluche


    __________________________________________________ ____________
    What the channel has done:
    We regularly do epic elite Chrono, never have CC and usually run two healers - if we can get a real second healer it's an even bigger bonus!

    So many ToDs my head hurts, we don't run them as much since people have moved on. Elite and everything else.

    HoX/VoD on elite whenever someone really needs them.

    LoB on epic hard, did it once for favor on normal elite. Epic elite, some day...

    MA we don't run this much as there is little demand.

    Abbot, always a fun time.

    VoN if people want it.

    CitW - this will happen as soon as Turbine let's me level up to 25. So, probably never.

    I haz a question...

    Where did the name come from? o_o

    Just curious, because from a PUGer's perspective, I would find it difficult to remember this channel name.

    A very good initiative though, will gladly help when available.

    I've run a couple eChronos with your group (not on my healers... yet) and they went smoother than many of the Shrouds I've been in

    I'll definitely be joining your channel.

    My panther's name is Panthro. He's become a massive running joke. His lore includes, but is not limited to, being a deity whose domains are lag and all existence. If we lag in a raid, Panthro is telling us that we are doing too well and need a challenge. Panthro does not insta kill bosses because he is bound by godly laws which prevent direct aid to mortals, though he could easily kill all the bosses. In fact it's a bit odd that he listens to the laws since he could banish the other gods if he needed to.

    That's about it in regards to the name.

    Other options were S.E.C.K.S., though you'd have to ask Sunny as I forgot what it meant. Super Elitist Club of Knowledge Society I think... That was adapted into S.E.C.K.S.y PUGs. Then I ran an eChrono, asked if people wanted to join on a whim, got 7 people saying yes, and realized I needed to make a channel right then.

    We will be running eChrono (x3), LoB, VoD, and maybe some more Firday and Saturday.

    Great idea.
    Unfortunately the moment I joined I was insulted and told I was an elitist and never helped anyone.
    To set this straight, I help those who are willing to learn.
    I would have enjoyed helping you:P

    Masadique, are those eChronos happening tonight? I might have a crew that wants to tag along. All are quite competent, but not very fortunate in being able to find/participate in successful eChronos. I'd love for them to see how easy they can be.

    Come back in. I'll address the issue if it comes up again.

    To anyone who intends on joining this channel, the only rule is that you don't insult others. Some people are skilled and/or well geared. This doesn't always make them elitist. Some people are still unskilled and/or ungeared. This does not make the idiots.

    If you can't accept other people, please go find your own place to whine because I don't want you bothering others.

    I was planning some for tomorrow. I will see how many timers I have to play with. I'll be logging on shortly if you want to send me an in game tell.

    Edit: Yes, I can do one tonight. Send a tell to Verlichte please.

    Any plans for Abbot learning runs? The rare times an Abbot appears on the lfm it's the typical "know it and be awesome" lfm. Orien needs more Abbot runs!

    I noticed you were doing hard abbot and elite tod today, and i think neither succeded. If you are looking for geared people that know what to do to run with you say it clear, i cant see how you are helping people by running raids in high difficulties and of course it won't happen if people are not familiar and they joined you to 'learn'.

    I suppose this is one of the reasons they would appreciate more experienced people in the channel, to get better at gauging and guiding groups.

    I guess that's not clear enough of an invite to the experienced player to join up ;P

    I've been on a wipe of elite TOD with the Obsidian Marquis, and it was a blast; we didn't run over time, there was a good mix of experienced and 'noob' players and characters; we even decided to try Suuly because everything was running so smoothly. iirc the reason we wiped was because the suuly tank (who was timing is pots perfectly) got lagbombed and took about 30 seconds worth of damage in one shot. After that suuly wouldn't settle back down on aggro and it became pointless to continue. We could have finished with no pain if we skipped optional but I think Verlichte's point of running these raids is to try and push the envelope a little, learn something new, you know? Not just get back on timer ASAP.

    So, if you want to help out your fellow adventurer on Orien, want to learn more, or just want to have a fun group of puggers to challenge your skills with, follow Panthro and his 'companion' Verlichte today!

    Are you already aware of Item's Abbot and Item's Alt Abbot on Mondays and Fridays?
