We are going to practice the mechanics of the second encounter in Stronghold of the Faithful, Keep Construct. We will try to clear the Keep Construct encounter, but success cannot be guaranteed.
This training is primarily aimed at raiders, who have already seen Keep Construct before, but weren't yet able to beat it or believe that additional practice wouldn't hurt If you haven't tried it before, please read a guide or watch some videos, so that you know what to expect. Mechanics will be explained if necessary.
Raiders need to be very comfortable with their classes and rotations, as Keep Construct requires a considerably higher damage output than most encounters. Additionally there are some very punishing awareness mechanisms in the encounter. That is why I would not recommend this raid for first-time raiders!
Because the majority of damage to Keep Construct will be done in very short Burn Phases, power damage dealers are much more effective than condition damage dealers (this doesn't apply for Standard Bearer Warriors!). As we are ultimately aiming to clear the encounter, we will therefore not take condition damage dealers to this training, unless we know that their particular build leaves them with a very low ramp up time for their conditions. Sorry, folks.
Important! Keep Construct will follow the person with the highest toughness (the tank). The toughness of our tanks is usually around 1,400. If you have higher toughness than that and can absolutely not lower it, make sure to include that in your signup, so that our tank can prepare to increase their own toughness!
- Rift Forger is useful, but not required.
We will need:
- 2 Chronomancers for Quickness/Alacrity (1 Tank)
- 1 Standard Bearer Warrior for Empower Allies/Banners (condition based is fine!)
- 2 Healers (1 Harrier Druid for Might/Spirits/Spotter, the other for pushing the Construct Core)
- 5 DPS (preferably power based)
The raid starts at 19:30 CEST.
