Did a couple of the new EE raids last night.. Pretty fun.
Did VoN5EE, and VoN6EE on monday.. Call it a practice run. Got thru VoN5EE well enough. Tons of scrolls and seals droped, but tokens nerfed: 1 dungeon token and ~50 frags now.
VoN6EE: We'll call it a practice run. Some mistakes on the eggs lead to a wipe.
Tuesday went again, crushed it:
EVERYONE got raid loot! 100% droprate perhaps? pretty awesome.
Well increased. We had a pretty stacked group and crushed it. (Half guild raid - 6 from Crush it, with some pug slots filled with crimson eagles and others)
Overall I think its hard enough that you'll want to take solid, qualified level25s to pug this one, but still pugable with some qualificaiton. Generally I only set a weapon req, I might have to set a hp one. (450 hp rog had a death that wasn't really preventable without more hp).
BUGGED. Grr. Makes no sense, we played this in beta and it worked fine. Guess they took my feedback and tweaked it up to be a bit harder, which is awesome.. But also broke it in the process:
Lailat now sits on her perch, imediately as you enter, plus 3 efreeti spawn instantly, and constantly at a much faster rate then before. Shes targetable, but in npc mode and out of range to be talked to.
Anyways we tried like crazy to get her to come fight us, no luck at all. So we recruited a monk who could maybe make the jump to talk to her. He tried a bunch but couldnt do , seems they put some jets over there to prevent that.. Eventually after like 2 hours we did get convice a GM to start the battle for us (seems he either talked to her, or teleported her to the center for us, as I was able to talk to her and start the battle after he moved her). But i guess fatigue and other factors got us and we got crushed. Shes pretty awesome on EE. We'll have to get to lvl25, max our destinies and try again when the bugs fixed.
(we went in on EH after and crushed her in a 10 second pathetic battle and got loads of raid loot we didnt deserve.. but ill leave that for another topic)
So yea public thanks to gm +Krymux for going the extra step to help us. (seems most GMs won't do anything that isnt the in the "known issues with known solutions lists"), but he did
So yea, EE is fun for (some) raids.. Any other guilds check em out in these initial two days?
Friday 7PM EST:
Another EE Dragon sceduled, along with EE Chronoscope. Come join us in and crush it! Requirements may be high to get in tho at this initial stage while we figure out the best strategies.
