  1. I feel grossly misrepresented. My Egypt is a peaceful cradle of culture and science. But also occasionally rocket artillery.
  2. All past raids are now also visible on the raid schedule, checkmarked and all \o/

  3. Slaywright.4807 Chrono, healer, power Engi, condi Rev, all the usual suspects.
  4. Slaywright.4807 Healer, DPS, or Chrono in an emergency Can Ley Line glide. Remark: Druid or Tempest Healer pls
  5. The time has come to take on the remaining one of the wing end encounters, Deimos of wing four, the Bastion of the Penitent. This is an introduction run, so prior experience with the encounter itself is not required. However, due to the nature of the encounter it is not suitable for inexperienced raiders (especially as a first raid). We will explain and practice all the mechanics of the encounter, and while we aim to eventually try to complete it, success cannot be guaranteed. The tactic being used requires everyone to bring along a ranged weapon, so please state which weapon(s) you would be bringing with each profession you sign up with. To faciliate a smoother introduction experience, two key roles needed for the fight are reserved for raid team members in addition to the raid leader's spot. The composition we are aiming for the run is as follows: 2 Chronomancers (one reserved for tank) 2 condition damage Phalanx Strenght Warriors 2 healers 3 damage dealers 1 kiter (reserved) If you are signing up as a healer, please mention if you have any previous experience of dealing with the special mechanics in the encounter. The start time is 19:00 CEST. The run is scheduled for four hours, and depending on our progress we will have a break in a convenient point in between.
  6. Slaywright.4807 Chrono or Healer. Remark: You will be playing Chronomancer
  7. Slaywright.4807 Healer Tempest or Druid, Chrono, Engi or condi Rev. Remark: DPS pls
  8. Slaywright.4807 Chrono (can tank), condi Revenant, healer Druid or Tempest, various Engi permutations, whatever else we've done.
  9. CANCELLED DUE TO INSUFFICIENT SINGUPS --- a.k.a. Raid Introduction: Escort + KC We'll be looking into the basics of raiding in the form of the first two encounters of the third Forsaken Thicket raid wing, Stronghold of the Faithful. This is an introduction run to both encounters, so prior experience with neither is required, but experienced raiders are welcome along aswell. The baseline gear outlined here: http://www.theopencommunity.org/topic/1527-what-kind-of-gear-do-i-need-before-i-can-join-raids/ is perfectly fine. Only requirement is a good understanding of your chosen profession and the concept of your role; healers heal, condition damage dealers deal condition damage, etc. The actual requirements for the encounters differ slightly, but for the purposes of introduction we will focus on completing the Siege the Stronghold (Escort) encounter and familiarising ourselves with the basics of the Keep Construct fight, but success on the latter cannot be guaranteed. Some of the group will need the Ley-Line Gliding mastery for the first encounter. Please mention in the signup whether you have it or not. We will need: 1 Chronomancer 2 healers 2 Phalanx Strength Warriors 5 DPS At least 1 Elementalist is highly useful A crowd-control condition heavy class is highly useful, for example a Necromancer, a condition Engineer or a condition Ranger. An Elementalist can also fill this role. Notes: Two spots in the group are reserved for the raid leader and an assistant from the raid team. The raid starts at 18:00 CEST
  10. Aspiring to take your first steps into raiding in Guild Wars 2? This is a good place to start. We will get acquiainted with the base concept of how the raids work, and the many mechanics of the first raid encounter, the Vale Guardian. While the ultimate goal is to eventually kill it, which is fully possible, being just an introduction run there is no guarantee of this. But you will at least gain perspective on the level of challenge the raids offer, and some magnetite shards to get your raid currency stash started. No prior experience with raiding or the Vale Guardian are required, there are no mastery requirements, and the baseline gear outlined here: http://www.theopencommunity.org/topic/1527-what-kind-of-gear-do-i-need-before-i-can-join-raids/ is perfectly fine. Only requirement is a good understanding of your chosen profession and the concept of your role; healers heal, condition damage dealers deal condition damage, etc. We will need: 1-2 Chronomancers 1-2 healers 2 Phalanx Strenght Warriors, at least one condition damage based One condition damage DPS (2 if we have only one healer) 3-4 DPS (depending on the number of spots left) Notes: Half of the group would ideally be able to deal damage from range, so if your profession has a decent ranged option, do bring it alongside your melee equipment. This event also needs reliable crowd control skills at certain intervals. The warriors should for this purpose have a mace and a shield available to them, and any other classes should equip any hard crowd control skills that do not jeopardise their primary role. The start time is 18:00 CEST.

  12. Gorseval is the second encounter in Spirit Vale, the first raid wing in the Forsaken Thicket. This introduction is aimed at raiders who have never done the boss before, but experienced people are welcome aswell. This can also be your first raid encounter, however the fight is slightly more demanding in terms of knowing your class and rotations due to higher required damage output than most of the other encounters. We will look at two different strategies for defeating Gorseval, and while we will try to kill it, success cannot be guaranteed. We will need: 1-2 Chronomancers 1-2 Healers 2 Phalanx Strength Warriors 4-6 damage dealers (Most likely) someone to open the encouter (preferably without the pre-events done) (!) Notes: Two spots are reserved for the raid leader and a raid team member for organisation. Signups will be verified when the raid is full or close to full to accommodate the required group composition. The raid starts at 20:00 CEST
  13. This was certainly an interesting kill run...

  15. Also known as an "Opener prep run" or something :3 We're kicking off the raiding week with a stroll through the opening acts of the first three raid wings, facilitating stepping in as an opener for the last encounter of each of those wings for the week. We may not necessarily clear each one in one attempt, but our goal is to get through all six without too much trouble. When signing up please list any of the alternate roles you can fill, and if you're required to swap characters to step into these roles have all the appropriate characters ready to go at the start of the raid to expedite the process. Thank you. The start time is 19:00 CEST. We will need: 2 Chronomancers 2 healers 2 Phalanx Strength Warriors 4 DPS Two spots are reserved for the organisers. Bosses on the docket and role changes per encounter: Wing 1: Vale Guardian (1 condi PS, 1-2 condi) Gorseval Wing 2: Slothasor (A necromancer is extremely useful) Bandit Trio (At least one condition damage dealer is handy) Wing 3: Siege the Stronghold (One warg handler needed, one Chronomancer swapped for DPS) Keep Construct (All power DPS) Bonus: Twisted Castle
