Survival: Barrow-Downs skirmish lvl100 - Mon 8 June 19 BST

Post by Obion » Fri Jun 05, 2015 2:44 pm

Ere brought it up I think it's a great one. I have never done it so that makes it a must for me.

Survival can be done in 3, 6 or 12 person mode and of course I would like to do it with 12.

The idea of the skirmish is pretty simple, stand your ground and survive for as long as you can.

Some numbers I found
  • * Kill a mob and 30s later a replacement appears
    * Starts with 2 mobs and 1 is added every 2.5 min
    * Every 5 min a Lieutenant joins the fight.
    * Daily deeds stop counting after 30 mins but the instance lasts for 1h, if you can survive that long :)
    * If you die and retreat you are locked out
There is a very long list of deeds and looking at them will give you an idea what it's about
http://deedfreak.com/deeds/Skirmish/Skirmishes
Scroll down to where the purple flags start, and the rest is Survival skirmish deeds.

In raid you get 2-3 LT's per iirc normal raid skirms correctly. Assuming it's the same here, the deed to not kill any during 30 mins of fighting will make for a lot of LT's. And some interesting combinations of them.
But there's also a deed for killing them and a chance to drop more loot, so we can do either. Not killing would be the most difficult and thus the one I would prefer.

Since it's a constant fight, power reserve really is important. You don't have any time out of combat to recuperate.
Bring pots and loads of them. Especially power pots.

I would like the following, but not excluding any.
1. Tank 1: "Obi" (LT tank)
2. Tank 2: (mob tank)
3. Cappy: "Aed"
4. LM: "Obi" (yellow for power share, cc and debuff)
5. Healer 1: "Aed"
6. Healer 2:
7. DPS/CC: (burg would be nice but a second LM works too)
8. DPS: Ruppert
9. DPS: "Obi"
10. DPS:
11. DPS:
12. DPS:

Tara on something - can fill most, if not all, roles.

"[name]" = Preliminary roles

Depending on how many who signs up I will change the instance group size accordingly.

Here's vid to get an idea what's it about. This is a small fellowship

Can come on any (I think you'd want my cappy or minnie in the first instance). This instance is a blue warden's meat and drink; also good would be red guards and any sort of minnie :). https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread ... wns-Ownage

Just a quick point here:
If indeed the intended date for this is 8 June (and not July), it might not be an optimal choice, since 8 June is also the scheduled release of Update 16.1, which means there's a quite high probability that servers might either be down/patching or otherwise behave erratically (until they 'settle down' a bit again after the Update) during this event.

That said; it does sound like a very interesting (and fun!) choice of event. :)

It is June, mistype.
And while U16.1 is scheduled for today I'm hoping it will be sorted until 19 BST.

Also, for information; game servers have been up for more than an hour already, so it seems they've finished early.

I'll see if I'm online in time for this, but I don't already have this instance/skirmish so I'd have to buy it in that case.

Thank you all for coming. Lots of lag but I kinda liked the instance, very different from others.
There isn't much tactics to it, basically survive and hope for the best. Some small things, champs would be better in red line since those flame balls really hurt with the reflect. Rest is just sorting out which LT is the worst and go for that.
There is no real end to it except the daily 30 min quests, and no shiny loot at the end. There is lots of marks and meds though. Also a good instance for the LT slayer deeds.


Think if they created a similar for Helms Deep, that could be fun. Endless waves of enemies charging in, and you stand defending. Death is certain and your only goal is to try and give the others just a bit more time to retreat.

Rangers, I had a problem with my network connection the other evening ... I'm really sorry for that. I hope you still could finish it.

All the best!
