    Horace goes a Raiding

    With the 1st raid coming up on the 17/11 thought we could use a thread for all things raiding type chat.
    Details on the raid :

    Our limited experience with the 1st boss during beta and other musing's:

    So I'm thinking that we won't need to formally organise parties in advance at first, since we can probably get multiple groups going each night to learn the raid. We may want to set a common start time, though.

    After things settle down we will probably have to formalise things a bit with regular weekly slots and pre-arranged parties.

    Those who want to take part will have to be aware that builds and gearing will be very important. You can't just turn up with your personal favourite build and your magi's gear and hope to be useful. There won't be gear checks or anything but we will have to make sure everyone understands that 'play/gear how you want' won't be an option for succeeding at raids, at least not at first.

    I'm thinking of making a separate thread that's just a list of builds for every class for different roles, so people can just be directed there and pick up whatever is needed.

    .
    Agree but we with people getting locked to a "Raid leader if a kill happens" need to have an idea of who is with what group otherwise people may lose out on loot, also an idea of numbers for the initial one.

    That would be massively useful I figure - get it in a short URL and we can point people towards it easily.

    From that thread, it takes 1.5 hours for the whole thing?

    Was a lot of fun in beta so looking forward to trying it again

    As for builds it looks like you need one guy with higher toughness (to draw aggro) one guy to heal and the rest can be dps (although will need a lot of condi in there for some phases)
    That was only the first boss though, may be very different in later fights

    Second your idea, Malawi - that would be a great help. Some basic notes about foods & consumables to go along with it would be good, too - I can't remember if we already have that elsewhere.

    Everyone else - please register your interest for guild raid groups. We'll have loads of us to start with and will run parties ad hoc, but we want to make sure everyone who wants to is getting a chance to raid.

    Updated the op with a link to a google doc that people can put there names down that want to try out the raids.

    Many thanks Fers. Can you just make it a list for now rather than dividing into teams. We don't even know if it will be available UK time on the 17th, let alone if it will work. We can always divide the list into teams later.

    Maybe you could have columns for people to say which days they're available next week instead?

    Yeah, I'd be up for that and my ever expanding roster of ... oh. That'll be necro, warrior or guardian then
    Monksbjornsson, a glass cannon of nordic origins and gleeful slaughterer of rabbits
    Monksbane, hardcore spectre of ghastly damage
    Monksgaard, hunter of dragons with bow and trap
    Monkscourge, provider of bonus conditions you didn't know you needed
    Monksfenrisson, a burning scandinavian who can support his friends at party time
    Monksderwydd, an irish chap who can wield staffs, bows and pets

    Can't edit doc

    Also what sort of times are we talking for availability? I'm generally only around in afternoons/evenings.
    Might also be worth adding another column for people to put classes they can bring (or checkboxes for each class)

    For the opening runs let's nominate a common time for people to gather at each evening. I propose 8:30 GMT (9:30 CET). Any advances on that?

    Putting in my register of interest
    Thought I'd put in a few details to help guild leaders in team planning.
    Can do most evenings from 8.30, not Fridays

    Can do all classes (not all specialisations yet though), but in rough order of knowing how to play them and having appropriately geared:
    Warrior (zerk PS or berserker)
    Ranger (Condi, sinister but working on vipers
    Ele (zerk staff)

    Will edit depending on what is in Malawi's build thread

    We already have a google doc above, surely we're not going to make a second one too... I know it's not editable yet, but give Fers a chance

    I'd really like to get into the raids, primarily on my Mesmer but the only ascended he has is Dire which is almost certainly not the "meta". Need to do the LS2 achievements for the sinister trinkets but again...and condi mes won't be meta.

    I can also do Neco and Ranger but again that would only be ascended trinkets...possibly weapons too.

    that isn't for class just availability - and as you will see there is much more to consider.
