    I prob won't be on till 9 - think I have the late shift bringing my son back from cubs tonight.

    Squiz - if we were in it for the loot we wouldnt be doing fractals. Even if we were in it for the ascended chests we probably ought to just run L10 daily... (Ah, remember the days when L20 seemed impossibly hard?)

    probably won't be on tonight, have work leaving drinks (not mine). but would be up for some sub 40 runs over the weekend; even sub 30 so we can practice (for example Swamp, without instabilities)

    Not that I have done *that* many but a key thing for me is having a portal mesmer for the the first essence bit. Just eliminates so much crap dodging or the barriers that spawn. Swap back/to another alt after if needed but when the party has had one - it was a breeze, when not we could be lucky and it was okay or not and it was a pissing grind.

    It was Mossman causing us the trouble last week.

    Practicing mesmer portal at swamp would be good.
    Also thief stealth at dredge (2 or even 3 thieves for the first bit, thief + mesmer for the bombs)
    Thief skipping past harpies in uncategorised is another thing we tried once but needed more practice, but as a failed jump by anyone other than the thief means resetting, I dont think it saves a huge amount of time
    For general mobs, ascalon and the start of snowblind are probably ones we fail unnecessarilly at on higher levels
    Grawl shaman and the molten duo probably the other 2 tricky bosses we could practice.

    Dont hold the start on my account, Tweeti, if you get a group go ahead, but will try to be on as soon as I've put RL in its place.

    Lower level runs at weekend would be good, Hawks.

    Fair enough, everyone has his or her own reasons to play the content I guess. However, since 3x is still sufficient to increase my fractal level, that's what I am willing to run atm.

    Incredible scenes last night as Blaergh and Squirrel took down the last quarter of the Molten Berserker's health on their own... then Squirrel died at ~10%, and Blaergh gave us a masterclass in thief soloing -- he went down when the mob was on 1% and rallied off its death. Reminds me of our first time beating the Aetherpath boss...

    Decent run yesterday. Dredge was ok (I'm a firm believer in the 2 thief solution now, so swapped out temporarily.), good skillz from Bleargh at the end; aquatic and molten made up the numbers. Huge difficulty difference between 20s and 40s, was fun.

    Huh, it seems AR doesn't work in increments of 5. Every point of AR has effect, reducing damage taken.
