    Default First EE Temple of Deathwyrm Completion!

    Well it took us 7 1/2 hours, but we finally completed. Only one of us had run this on Lamma, but the rest of us were going in blind without any spoilers. This was by far one of the most fun, frustrating, exciting and well thought out raids that Turbine has come out with. It was a hell of a run. Guilds included in the run were Degenerate Matter, Trolls Lair, Death n Taxes, Truth Seekers, Chaos Gamblers, Huitzilopochtil Heirs, ChaosKnights and Synergia. We had a few people who had to drop mid run, not pictured in the screenshots was Ridero and Stronth of Trolls Lair. We're going to have to do another for ya.

    Default Fun but Tired

    It was a lot of fun, and can't wait to do it again now that we know what to do. We actually killed a couple of the bosses, including the dragon, multiple times as we learned how it was done. Once we got the mechanics figured out it went very smooth. Too bad the loot sucked

    And I thought the forums were quiet....Argo was still in the raid :P

    Grats. Nearly eight hours is a mammoth session of intense gameplay. That this was done by different guilds and I'm presuming without TS/Vent is a credit to pugs on Argo.

    Default Awesome Run

    Hands down my favorite raid in DDO, I've never been more exhausted ingame but incredibly satisfying to complete on EE with zero Live or Lama experience. Props to the Devs for a very well designed raid with puzzles and layers, I'm impressed. Very well done all!

    Cetus -- kill count does not reflect dps ... now go away.

    Also, not really Pugs -- just a few end game guilds full of friends that run together a lot. We are all in team speak.

    Were all good friends from different guilds that have been running together for a long time now. We just grabbed the first 12 that logged on and were keyed for the raid. We've got a TS server that many of us use, but going in blind was very tough. We had no idea what to expect after each portal, many times we were expecting a break in the action or a shrine, so you can imagine our surprise each time.

    It was a load of fun.

    No way a pug could do this on EE haha.

    Also Cetus I took one I think, I'll take a look later.

    To expand on this, many of these guilds have a number of members in FoM channel with its own TS server. This run (along with other runs everyday) was filled through here.

    Hehe. didn't mean to infer that comms detract from the achievement at all.Can only imagine your reaction when you guys saw the lone shrine, and had no idea how much still lay ahead. "Blind" runs are definitely the new crushing it.

    No worries haha, just chuckled a bit at the pug comment. You need some serious coordination to get this done.

    It was a blast, but yeah the lone shrine we were shocked by. We kept saying WHERE ARE THE SHRINES?! and come to find there is only one....

    Also, the jumping part. We were on the verge of tears by the rage of everyone falling off. That part took us a while, then on re-entry having to do it again...hehe.

    An uber raid, and a job well done by turbine. Definitely surpassed all of our expectations.

    Yea, shave 2 hours off that completion time just waiting for az to jump across. Also, the dragon bugging out in the corner was kinda stupid.

    I should have just booted az outta the game and did it for her.... =D


    I'm forming another one some time tomorrow after trying the other raid - now that we know the flow, it should go much smoother.

    Well I'm glad that u made it folks. Was such a pain having to log after 6 hours struggling in there but duty calls.

    Although frustating at a times, it was simply awesome. Good job.
