    Default Lava Divers R10 Killing Time -- World First

    We did it! R10 Killing Time is complete. We've won DDO until the feywild raid is released. Amazing tanking by Ben and Epicsoul. Next level, god mode healing from Sno, Kanra, Gisty, and in a pinch Dom. Fantastic trash mashing by Dom and Matty. Deathrobot coming through with the best arti I've seen run since reapering with Lawfulbring -- the buffs and shields were raid saving. And last but not least, r10 KT was done with only 4 true dps Crazy good work done by Jenn, Gunga, Ying, and Tanky on the deeps.

    This has been a long time coming. Soul crushing lag has been the biggest issue with KT since we started pushing skulls nearly a year ago. Lag is still an issue in KT today with spells not landing and people falling through air jets. We got lucky with lag. This was only the second time we were able to make it to the LOB phase.

    Raid Composition:

    2 barbarian tanks with Visage. Beefcake HP and hamp, with Visage to help with adds.

    4 healers: Traditional fvs build, fvs with Divine Intervention as a counter to lag on the tank as well as our DC sorc, cleric with T5 Falconry for Death from Above on shielded parasites, and druid for awesome hots and kiter for ToD and LOB phase. Two healers stayed out with the Korkaza tank, and two healers went into the rifts.

    1 DC sorc. It's so good, it's been dubbed "The Unfair Build".

    1 pure Artificer. Never thought I would type those words in the context of an R10 raid completion. Mass Unbreakable Forcefield capstone, T5 Unbreakable Forcefield, positive energy infusion since Toven's cookies were nerfed, twisted Crusade, and applied some weapon debuffs. Terrible melee DPS.

    4 DPS: One traditional Horc FB Barb with Baz, 2 Aasimar T5 Occult Slayer for max HP with Tail and 15 Rogue/5 Paladin using Pain/Suffering in Shadowdancer. Pure Paladins were getting wrecked in our prior R10 attempts (not enough HP), so we transitioned over to barbarians. Ironically Jennafer had the fewest deaths, even though he had the lowest HP out of us thanks to evasion during LOB (blade barrier hitting for 2900 with multiple death penalties were one-shotting the barbs). Also, let that sink in for a second: Only 4 DPS for an R10 raid.

    Combined, there were 1614 reaper points in the raid party (134 per person avg). Every HP mattered.

    Tactics: Dealing with champion adds is 90% of this raid.

    Six of us had Stand and Be Judged twisted. This was essential to keeping adds locked down until they could be killed. Twisting this in was the single largest improvement we had when dealing with the adds. And for those unfamiliar, KT adds can spawn as champions. Champions will easily one-shot the beefiest of builds.

    When waves of mobs spawned, we rotated using Mass Unbreakable Forcefield on the first wave, everyone used Meld into Darkness on the second wave, and then personal resources on the third wave (Radiant Forcefield clickies/pots, LD Thick Skin, Improved Uncanny Dodge, etc).

    As always, thanks for the strategy roundup, Ying.

    I would add two things: (1) One of the healers, Vampp, was primarily a DC caster to assist Daddymatty with instakills, and (2) The artificer also had 3 separate uses of radiant forcefield, which I cannot understate how useful that was on the final island and for LOB.

    Two other details:

    Epicsoul isn't joking about LOB hitting a tank hard. He got one shot when at full health when he failed to dodge/tumble away from LOB's whirl-his-weapon-behind-his-back then slam attack:



    Also, on the islands everyone was wearing medium or heavy armor and had 225+ MRR in addition to chaos absorb. R10 KT is no place for a monk.

    Also this was huge while tanking final island. There were a couple of times I was up to 18-20 stacks because of some problems clearing stacks with lag.

    Proud of you? Ha!

    I just said I was impressed.

    In order for me to have any pride in you, I'd have to have been some sort of teacher or other authority figure who raised, supervised, or advised you. We all know that's not the case.
