    Had a really goddamn good raid tonight.

    Last week, while I was travelling, they nailed Socrethar heroic, and then went on to 3shot Fel Lord heroic.

    This week, we repeated both with a oneshot, and also oneshot H Iskar, which was a first. And then we went on to oneshot Heroic Xhul, Heroic Tyrant, and half a dozen attempts to get Heroic Mannoroth, all progression. In two weeks we went from 7/13H to 12/13H.

    Meanwhile we spent the whole night on M Soc. I wasn't in the group til the last 30 minutes I dunno what was going wrong for most of the night.

    @Dhalphir what strat did you guys use for Soc? Our biggest issue is figuring out when to get out of the first Phase 2; and then things start going South.

  • LorahaloLorahalo Registered User regular
    If you're going to go back in P1 at all, it's best to do it before the 3rd dominator. Otherwise you're going to have 6 Marks out and it will stress the shit out of your healers.

    The 3rd dominator is also around when the portals swap positions, which is normally when people start messing stuff up as well.

    Heroic Soc?

    You want to exit the first phase 2 shortly before the portals move. For us that was about 25% on the Soul.

    I tell you what, I really love Heroic Xhul'horac. It's one of the few fights where I enjoy the heroic mode more than the normal one, because it's exactly the same fight, just harder.

    Lots of fights in HFC are totally different normal -> Heroic. Not extra mechanics, but because of the way the number increases work out, making previously trivial mechanics super important. For example, Fel Lord. On normal, it really doesn't matter if you accidentally let a seed explode in the group, or let a wave hit a pillar. It'll hurt, but your healers can easily compensate. On heroic, it's a wipe.

    Whereas on Xhul, dropping fire in bad places and allowing explosions on your raid will wipe you in normal just as readily as it will in heroic, but heroic just makes it all harder requiring better practise. Linearly scaling difficulty, not exponential.

    you want to transition back to construct before the third dominator comes out; it's likely that the third dominator's shield will allow socrethar to break the construct tank out anyway, and then you have to transition with fresh gifts up

    depending on the construct's health, you should just stop interrupting one or two casts after the second dominator dies. Leaving phase two a little bit early doesn't matter that much, since you have to do a second one anyway

    the bolded definitely isn't true. We ended up getting a third dominator because our construct was at 60% hp still after the first two.

    Got Soc on the first pull tonight, no prot tier :( still got 695 gloves. Did get a warforged haste/spirit cloak though. Only 717 though, compared to our geared to the tits resto druid who's at a comfy 722.

    Inconclusive. I was brought in from the start, but I learned that one of the warlocks had gotten banned for three hours for trolling (which he does often), so it's anyone's guess whether it was because they wanted me or I was the runner-up. I won't know until Friday when they do Mythic again, if the warlock doesn't get themselves banned again, second time in a month already. However by hanging out in Mumble afterwards I've seen rumblings of strain in the guild. For example, one of the warriors is apparently incensed that there's even the mere possibility I might get the Heroic version of the Drinking Horn trinket off Mannoroth, which is a vital part of Frost DPS in any of the three versions and I don't have it yet, because he's been running Mannoroth longer and he only needs one more piece of loot from the raid so he feels it wouldn't be fair to deny him. However, this is a problem in the team where when people get all the loot they need, they are not inclined to keep running for the people who haven't gotten all of their stuff yet. Last night we did Heroic cleanup and half the team flat-out did not show up.

    We had a BM Monk tank that did this to us after he got his vital gear. He stopped showing up for Normal farm nights. Then school started so he quit the raid.

    I mean, I get why people do this, but FFS the others all helped you get your stuff. Help them get theirs so the raid can progress. In the meantime, you get crystals for bypassing content later; and you get items for upgrading the ilvl of your ring.

    Madican it sounds like you're with a group of a bunch of real fucking idiots if they don't plan on doing Mannoroth every single week, because you need to do at least Mannoroth every week to do an Archimonde every week, to get the Ring upgrade, every week.

    No, they are planning on doing Manno and Archi every week for exactly that reason. I'm saying that people aren't showing up to clear the rest of the Heroic bosses.

    Buy a token and put it up should get about 28k from it if you really want a cash infusion.

    Well if a raid is planned and people just don't show up, the statement still applies. Sounds very disorganized and full of selfish people that don't put the group over their selves.

    I've got 100k plus on another server. Just trying to get some of that onto a new character is annoying.

    There is a calendar invite used, but it seems to be an arcane mystery for some people to accept or decline. That said, the raid leader does recognize that real life comes first, and some have legitimate reasons to not be there. It would also help if Sunday was considered a "mandatory" raid night like Friday and Saturday.

  • ViskodViskod Registered User regular
    Not being able to attend is different from "not showing up" you said on farm nights that half of the team just doesn't show up, as in not accepting or declining invites and just not showing, or accepting invites and not showing anyway, because I would assume most of these people don't need anything from farm and don't want to be bothered to do bosses they don't need.

    I mean, if one of them literally got banned for trolling, then they just sound like a group of dumb fucks. You'd probably be better off dropping your name on Plenty of Orcs.

    Woo, killed the first few bosses in heroic HFC for the first time last night and got a heroic tier hat with a socket.

    The priest hat still looks dumb, but the red & gold colors of the heroic version make it more bearable.

    The one who got banned from trolling isn't actually part of the guild. They're just acquaintances with some of the members and do major DPS, which is why they're brought even when apparently no one sheds a tear when his dumbassery gets him the hammer. As for the rest, some of them do need stuff from the earlier bosses, like DSI from Council, but we're so close to them in Mythic they'd rather just try for the stuff in that mode.

    Like I said though, I'll wait to see what happens this Friday.

    Sooo, did they even further nerf gold missions with the flying patch or something? Because I was making like 800+ gold a day from missions before I took a break (a couple weeks before the flying patch) and since I came back a couple days ago my income has been absolute trash by comparison.

    You absolutely need Treasure Hunters if you want to make gold off garrison missions. I can still pull in about 500-600 per day with them.

    I've got a feeling that Dac has treasure hunters if they were making 800+ gold a day from the normal missions alone.

  • LorahaloLorahalo Registered User regular
    They nerfed the gold missions so that you only get the full amount on the first character you do them on per week, then each character after has a reduced amount.

  • Eat it You Nasty Pig.Eat it You Nasty Pig. tell homeland security 'we are the bomb'Registered User regular
    what they did was make the 'spawn' chance of gold missions diminish when you have multiple max level garrisons; the consensus seems to be that three max-level alts/garrisons is the sweet spot and more than that is fairly useless (from a gold mission standpoint anyway.) It should be about the same if you only do them on one character, although I'm not sure how/if other max level characters eventually stop counting 'against' you.

    That's kind of shitty.

    Cause it screws you over if you have a lot of alts and, y'know, would like to actually go to Tanaan with them and do the apexis dailies(which requires a max level garrison of course).

    It doesn't screw you over if you have a lot of alts. It's just diminishing returns - someone with ten max level characters won't earn ten times the gold of someone with only one main character. Which seems fair to me, because garrisons were ludicrously profitable.

    I have been doing the beer run brewfest dailies since 5k is a little steep to upgrade a heirloom compared to 500 beer coins which is doable and a fun way to waste 20 minutes
    I am only upgrading the heirlooms since Blizzard has not reduced the exp to level to 100 and it's not a fun leveling story this time and very hard to skip parts of it

    After this raid we are getting so much interest from applicants. We're ranked #21 on the server, but everyone above us raids a minimum of three nights a week, and you have to go down thirty rankings to find another single-night guild. I'm really proud of the casually hardcore atmosphere we've built.

    Just do that thing where you get those 300% exp pots and finish all the Gorgrond bonus objectives. Shoots you up to like level 97-98.
