Orthanc Raiding Nights

Post by Balthelion » Fri Dec 09, 2011 2:09 pm

So, Orthanc is around the corner, and we have a score to settle with a certain wizard.

The raid is split into 5 wings. The first 3 can be done in any order (think DN's orc bosses after you've cleared trolls in DN, or Wound & Disease in OD). Clearing ALL THREE of those opens up the shadow wing. Beat the shadow wing to get on Saruman.

It should be possible to get two wings done per night in a reasonable time (once everyone is comfortable with the tactics). So once we've nailed everyone we should be able to get it done in THREE nights maximum. We may need four nights for the learning phase.

So with that in mind, what days are good for everyone?

Yup, obviously christmas will bugger the schedule up for the first month. But of course vote as if it was an everyday week :)

Thursday i think is best left free for Draigoch, it seems a good day and we still need general crap out of there for some kinnies and scales for most of us mere mortals ;)

Not to mention the new rumoured crafting recipes.

From what Bal has said it could take us a while to get the hang of this new raid, especially as we will have some people fired up by skirmish raids and draigoch who will originally want to run , but will get disheartened by failure so original few runs will be watered down a bit on raid expereince.

Maybe being a bit pesimistic here, but even some of the expereinced players have been getting bad habbits in Draigoch imo, as especially with the buffs such large dps numbers are possible....


I would be tempted to drop tuesday Draigoch run after this next cycle, keep Thursday / SUnday for scaly or whatever and use the other 5 days for various orthanc / instance attempts.

Skirm raids for gearing up, can be mated to fall on 6 man instance nights if need be?

Or even just have 2 x 6man on one night, or does every one just want to go hell for leather on the raid?

I mean, I have lots of free time before Xmas. After Xmas I will be back to my usual schedule of 5:30 to 7:30pm most nights. Maybe a bit more up to New Years. Which probably counts me out of most raids.

I replied every day except Mon and Wed. I can make it on those too but would pref the other days. I only got a week left of school before the holiday and I think it's a 3 week one so I'll have all the time in the world before 9th of January. :)

I'm hoping to get in on the learning run(s) if possible.
