Last Night we started with Heroic Abbot. Then onto Epic Chrono, VoN 5&6, Zawabie's and Fall of truth. Back to Heroic Titan Raid (I botched the 1 shot so had to use 5/8 pillars to take him down, no misses). The people joining seem to be getting really good at the pre-raid, so we complete in less than 30 mins now consistently, even while understaffed (5 this time). Then had a request to do Reaver's Fate, Heroic HoX, VoD, MA and finished with LoB.

We did have some people question why we were doing the heroic raids. The answer to that is because not many people run them so you can get favor experience for the style of raid, for the Titan Raid anticipating that eventually they will Epic or Legendary it. Not sure if everyone knows but there is something like 30ish items that drop in the flagging quests, pre-raid and raid. Imagine Legendary version of the Seven Fingered Gloves or even the Titanic Docent or Royal Guard Mask. If it comes to pass, then having people trained with the heroic raid will make it that much easier to conquer the Epic/Legendary if it comes.

As a note also, 2 people in the Abbot Raid did the water section the correct way, instead of just swimming it. I was impressed since I have never done it that way.

Next week I will be at a Gaming Convention so no raids. I will be running again on January 21 4pm EST (9pm GMT).

Just seeing this now. I guess I can stop sitting outside the door to the Black Abbott. Hope you had fun at the convention...
Yes, yes I did. I learned the strategies of playing as the dwarves and trolls in Thud! and had a few games of Catan using my 10th Anniversary 3D set. Currently suffering a Chinese's buffet hangover but recovering.

The Raid schedule will be back to normal January 21 4pm EST (9pm GMT). Currently thinking about adding to the rotation Mark of Death (MoD), Fire on Thunderpeak (FoTP), Temple of the Deathwyrm (DW) and Defiler of the Just (DoJ).

I know I have someone flagged for DoJ, but not for any of the others. I remember running the Thunderholme raids a long time ago when they first came out and remember them being really long...

Last night's raid run was pretty good. We started with the standard HE Abbot, EE Chrono was interesting because Cergen had started one 8 minutes before we were to start. I had my group jump into his since there was space. Unfortunately, not everyone made it, sorry. Afterwards Cergen gave me the star and we went onto VoN 5&6, Zawabie's and FoT.

From there we had a request for Deathwyrm which was a success except for Fouroheight (I hope I spelled that right) I tried to get him back to the beginning before the lockout, but someone rushed ahead (my apologies). Then of course most people wanted to do Fire on Thunderpeak so that was done also. Next, we moved onto Mark of Death which is a serious let down compared to Heroic Abbot (I do believe the water is more dangerous in Heroic).

Then this is where I got derailed. A few people wanted Legendary Tempest Spine which is outside what I like to run (Skor... is to blame a bit). I told everyone I was uncomfortable running it, but no one wanted to lead so I was stuck with it. Someone suggested R1, another countered with R10, and I compromised with R4 (lucky that we did). I asked if people wanted to do the shortcut or the long way and more than a few said, "There is a long way?" They could not remember it since it had been so long since they had done it. Now to how I failed the group. I completely forgot about the 75 Strength lever. At first, we did not have it. Dreamt was close but had to switch some filigrees (maybe another weapon) there was some spells from some people and Crowsniffer came thru with a Potion of Prowess +3. So, it looked like everyone helped but me.

There were so many comments about not having run certain raids in years some said a decade even. So, I will continue running the older raids and leave Legendary Tempest Spine to those who are more able to run it. (At least until the level cap gets high enough that it becomes an old raid :cool:)

As a note Iaewen reached 7500+ Favor on Deathwyrm raid. Thank you everyone.

Last night was another success. HE Abbot, EE Chrono, VoN 5&6, Zawabie's, FoT (actually had a full group for this), FoTP, Deathwyrm (Only took us 20 minutes to get to the end fight, Amazing!), MoD (Bugged a little but made it), DoJ. Right before running MoD/DoJ I saw Dreamt was posted for raids and had included MoD. I invited them over and after DoJ handed the raid to them to run the higher-level raids.

Last night was a success. almost every raid was full. had the standard HE Abbot, EE Chrono, VoN 5&6, Zawabie's, FoT (had a couple new players so timing was a little off on double takedowns. They overcame it by shear DPS.) Due to a request from Xeang (who confuses FoT and Reaver's Fate) we ran HE Reaver's Fate next, then moved on to the HE Titan raid (due to helping someone new, I was late getting in, and the group had completed everything except the puzzle that was my job, I am a slow poke). After that wrangled the group thru the Subterrane and ran HE HoX, moved back to Market for HE VoD (1 trap blew so it was kind of fun) and finished the night off with MA (I am sorry for killing you again Grolag).
Had a couple other people ask about the cap raids and let them know that I only do Lv 30 and under.

As a note I helped flag 7 people on Saturday and Sunday flag for Abbot raid. If there are too many people for 1 raid I will be willing to run a 2nd after the first.

Planning on LoB, ToD, FoTP, DW and CiTW after the standard start next week. February 25th.

Running an extra Abbot run today (Wednesday) at 4pm EST. Rigzi has requested since the time slot on Sunday does not work for him. If there is enough interest, I will continue running it weekly with time permitting.

Running these legacy raids on Thelanis is much appreciated!
