    Default Update 17: Event #2 - Epic Gianthold Raid

    The Truthful One is a formidable foe: it's best to not face him and his disciples alone! Join me (and a few others) in Gianthold to confront the Truthful One during the Epic Gianthold Raid. There is even a chance to run the Raid with one of us! Also, while I currently have the Raid locked, I will leave it unlocked after the event.

    We will gather in Gianthold at the Raid entrance (the entrance to the Stormreaver's Inner Sanctum) on the following day and time to party up and battle Dragons.

    Friday, January 18th from 6pm to 8pm

    All times are Eastern (GMT-5)

    Smiles,
    Squeak

    Will try to be there.

    Are you looking to test a specific difficulty or all of them?

    Would it be possible to get events scheduled at times where West Coast residents can attend? 6-8pm EST is 3-5pm PST. As much as I want to, I don't think my boss will let me sneak out of work a couple hours aearly to attend the event....

    Squeak, will we have to flag for the Epic version of the raid by doing the three necessary "Return to" quests prior?

    You could always do what Doug does in King of Queens!
    Fake a heart attack.
    That would probably do it.

    25/26/27 n/h/e (according to adventure list).

    So expect something a little rougher than Caught in the Web difficulty wise (although hopefully not quite so long).

    This is a common question. What he said at the loot event on lama last night was that you technically don't have to get flagged. They have a way they can get you in, but it's kind of complicated so it'd be helpful if you could flag beforehand.

    See you there!

    If you wipe you probably can't get back in without GM intervention, so best to actually flag.

    I'm sorry I neglected to post about this point before now. Ginarrbrik is correct. We can drag you into the Epic Gianthold Raid so long as you are at least level 20. However, it requires us to party up with your group and teleport you into the quest. Then we leave you to transport the next in line. If you would rather not wait for this process, it is best if you are already flagged so you can just hop on in. Additionally, if you are not flagged, you won't get to turn in the quest afterwards.

    Thanks Ginarrbrik but there's no way I can flag in time. I wish I had known about the flagging thing yesterday. Good luck to you though!

    Was an outstanding raid.

    Completed both EH and EE. Best raid in the game IMO.

    Detailed feedback coming in another thread.

    Not having voice and/or speakers can make this raid WAY more difficult than it should be.

    This is true, I think the single most important thing our group did to get our completions was to operate on a disciplined comms basis (no chatting, calling out only important things in voice chat).

    Especially with four 'you must kill X and Y within Z seconds of each other or BAD STUFF happens' mechanics. A lot of calls like 'Primary DPS target is Dragon of Silence, all on primary except Migrane and Mizto stay on Giant of Silence'.

    We made sure everyone had the capacity to hear voice and almost everyone had a mic and this was crucial.
