  1. UCLG Raids via Fractals Event 29 (2020-07-30) This week's fractal event was dominated by the strife for getting the second collection for Ad Infinitum done. The picture below shows Rijoo (left, sitting on the table), Dimat (with her new ascended greatsword Caladbolg Orchida), me, the empress AJBlack (as the Ice Queen, in a state of exaltation), Georgo (with his loyal greatsword Dark Harvest), Kinzx (with his old legendary greatsword Eternity) and Aethelwyna (with his new legendary greatsword Exordium). So we set out in two groups.. The one group, with Rijoo, Georgo, Dimat, St Acacia (Whit) and me, ran into some kind of trouble in the Snowblind challenge mote while fighting the final boss and it wasn't before we adjusted our settings and tactics that we finally succeeded. Thaumanova Reactor time-trial and the challenge mote in Uncategorized went smooth though, as well as the other tasks for the Ad Infinitum II collection. After that, we stormed the recs for some missing fractal pages for Dimat and Georgo. For a finale, we had Eresch take over for Dimat and we tested our mettle in the Nightmare scale 99 challenge mote. We managed to kill the first boss and fight our way into the first dps race phase of the second, but that was the best we could do. For now. The other group, led by the empress AJBlack, with Aethelwyna and Kinzx completing a triple Guardian squad, picked up two PUGs, lost them again and then threemanned most of the challenge motes for Uncategorized and Snowblind as well as the time trial in the Thaumanova Reactor fractal. After completing the remaining tasks for the collection, they went for the dailies on tier 4 and won them valiantly. In the picture you can see the triple Guardian team, with (from left to right) Aethelwyna, the empress AJBlack as the Ice Queen and Kinzx:
  2. Intermediate Event Evaluation 2020-07-28 After running this event for about half a year now I am happy to see how many of us are now playing tier 4 fractals as if they never did anything else before. Many people in the guild now have ascended gear of the appropriate stats, 150+ agony resistance and know how to perform as a team. I definitely think we can be proud of that. And maybe restart training for raids soonishly. The fractal event on Thursday will go on though, with the stress even more on getting new people into fractals at all and into proper gear or on higher tiers than they are currently playing. Of course, everyone who is already at the top of fractals is very welcome to join the event and maybe lead groups of new comerades into fractals or into higher tiers.
  3. UCLG Raids via Fractals Event 28 (2020-07-24) With a mixed group of seven participants we had to take turns this time.. So Rijoo, Dimat, Whit and me took Rode Veer for the recommended fractals for tier 1 (Undergroud Facility) and tier 2 (Urban Battlegrounds), before Georgo (who was late as usual) took over for Rode Veer for the recommended fractal for tier 3 (Siren's Reef). After that, Dimat switched into the captain's chair and watched the rest of us, lead by Eresch, vanquishing the tier 4 dailies (Aquatic Ruins, Snowblind and Thaumanova Reactor). Then we concluded the evening with exploring alternate paths to the jumping puzzle chest in the Mistlock Observatory with reduced gravity. In the picture, taken just after the exit back to Lion's Arch with the Aerodrome in the background, you can see (from left to right) Georgo, me, Dimat (for once with her whole face showing), Rijoo (for once a very tiny asura), Eresch (for once lending Dimat an ear, as First Mate Horrik, after he had unleashed the canons) and Whit.
  4. I moved two of the shots from discord to imgur, hope this works now. Maybe the group rights system prevented them from being loaded. Pls tell me if the problem persists.
  5. UCLG Raids via Fractals Event 27 (2020-07-16) Two premières this time in the UCLG fractal event.. Eresch returned and took Rijoo, the empress AJBlack, Georgo and me to tier four where we valiantly won the dailies (Cliffside, Chaos and Twilight Oasis, where the empress beat Amala with her dying breath and her downed skills). Dimat accepted my request and led Kinzx, Visceryn, Aethelwyna and John to the daily recs first where they won the Molten Boss and the Swampland fractal. After that, Eresch changed groups and helped out Dimat, Kinzx and John, while the rest of my group, partially together with one PUG, but for quite a time on our own, beat the recs for tier 1 to 3. In the first picture (courtsey to Kinzx) you can see (from left to right) Amaryllis Sky (John), Dimat, Kinzx and Ethelwyna (and Dimats raveneagle) in the Mystlock Observatory's eternal sundown. For the other group you got two pictures: One with Eresch (iconographic representation) as the big ol' tree behind Georgo, Rijoo, me and the empress AJBlack (with her jubilating Ice Queen toon), the other one with Eresch (as before) and the rest of us turned into snowflakes.
  6. UCLG Raids via Fractals Event 26 (2020-07-10) After all the event is almost becoming an operation.. Again we had two groups going for loot and glory in the Fractals of the Mist. Since we knew we'd have a longish evening in front of us, we started off with relaxing in our undies: behold (from left to right) Amaryllis Sky (John), Dimat, Kinzx, Aethelwyna, Rijoo, me, the empress AJBlack on her cloud and Luna Svk (Georgo). Missing in the picture for some unknown reason is Visceryn. Rijoo proves that she can look grumpy even in a bathing suit and the human girls show that they have much nicer lingerie than we Norns have.. In my group Rijoo, Dimat, Aethelwyna and Kinzx started with ticking off the recommended fractals from tier 1 to tier 3 (Deepstone, Twilight Oasis, Underground Facility) and then went on to conquer tier 3 dailies (Molten Furnace, Solid Ocean and Urban Battlegrounds). After that, we went into extra time and played Swampland (challenge mote), Aquatic Ruins (challenge mote), Solid Ocean (kill 'em all achievement and time trial) and finally Volcanic (all tier 1) for the first Ad Infinitum collection. As you can see in the picture, Kinzx was jumping for joy and Rijoo, healing hat still on, put her finger on it once again. The empresses group (Amaryllis Sky, Visceryn, Georgo and one PUG) decided to go for the Ad Infinitum collection right away and therefore beat the Urban Battlegrounds, the Swampland (challenge mote), the Aquatic Ruins (challenge mote), the Solid Ocean (time trial) and the Volcanic fractal. Look at this discipline in lining up after the victory!
  7. UCLG Raids via Fractals Event 25 (2020-07-02) Geez, for the 25th time that we ventured into the Fractals of the Mist as a guild, we really had a lot of people running through Dessa's realms. We actually had two full groups running simultaneously, one on tier 1 and one on tier 3. That is.. for the first time.. a full raid squad. And this although Eresch and Loreena were away working, Georgo was cut off from electricity and my sister Rijoo couldn't join either. In the picture below you can see the whole posse after meeting up in guild hall: From left to right it's Amaryllis Sky, Kinzx, Cesmedj, Aethelwyna, Cally, Younaty, Dimat, me and the empress AJBlack, with Chronos lying in front of us. In the first group Aethelwyna, Younaty, Dimat, Cesmedj and me tackled the recommended fractal for tier 1 (Aetherblade) and reaped our first rewards. After that we stormed Deepstone (tier 1) and Underground Facility (tier 2, with two people on Agony Resistance 0), before we concluded with the Mai Trin Boss Fractal (tier 1). The screenshot below shows the five of us on her airship, for a change with the hud on.. The second group was led by the empress herself and Amaryllis Sky, Kinzx, Chronos and Cally joining. They won the recommended fractals for tier 1 (Aetherblade) und tier 2 (Thaumanova Reactor) as well as the Underground Facility (tier 3) and tested their mettle at Deepstone and Shattered Observatory (tier 3). During Deepstone Younaty took over for the empress. The picture shows the group in Deepstone Hall, with Kinzx, Chronos, a PUG who took over for Amaryllis Sky (who had to drop out because of low agony resistance), the empress AJBlack and Cally (left to right).
  8. Oh, this thread is more about the general concept of the project and keeping/track reporting what we did and where we want to go. Dates and stuff are called out on discord or in the daily message. So the post regarding event #25 on Thursday will appear after the event.
  9. UCLG Raids via Fractals Event 24 (2020-06-25) Pursuing the goal of getting the Asura's to bed at a reasonable time, we speeded up things in fractals this week. Dimat, Rijoo, Georgo and me, together with a PUG named FlubberQ stormed tier 3 dailies (Chaos, Aetherblade and Nightmare) and checked off the recommended ones (Mai Trin, Snowblind and Thaumanove Reactor) in a rush and a go. Left us time to even play the Aquatic Ruins fractal (tier 1) to have some underwater action for a change. The picture is from this year's "Cute Asuras" calendar, with Dimat (left) and Rijoo (right) dozing next to (sitting) me, while Georgo in reaper form protects us from the tentacle thingy in the upper left corner. Dessa's agent was looking upon this scene, with a hard-to-guess-what-he-might-be-thinking kind of expression.
  10. Dragon Bash 2020: Dragon Arena Survival challenge The empress is back in the fight! Amaryllis Sky (John), Rijoo, me, the empress AJBlack and Kinxz (VMartinX; in the picture below from left to right) got ourselves the Eye Survived achievement in this year's Dragon Bash event's Dragon Arena Survival challenge.. even with 10 stacks the Eye of Zhaitan didn't stand much of a chance against our well organized on the fly hitsquad. Thanks everyone for pitching in!
  11. Oops.. Maybe it's an.. raveneagle..
  12. UCLG Raids via Fractals Event 23 (2020-06-19) Man rennt anders, wenn man brennt.. Obviously we didn't burn too much, since: "Not the fastest fractal run ever" holds true for this week's event again. With Loreena healing and Rijoo dps-ing we defintely took the scenic route through today's dailies in tier 3 (Nightmare and Snowblind) and tier 4 (Solid Ocean), but in the end, together with veteran Oz aka Oscanddex, joining for the first time, Dimat and me, we got everything done like usual. So we could do the recommended ones for tier 1 through 3 (Volcanic, Siren's Reef and Urban Battlegrounds) in a quite relaxed manner. For the first time we had somehow two groups running simultaneously, when Georgo showed up half an hour late and vanquished some fractals with another group while being on discord voice with us. So there are two pictures this week: The first one is from Solid Ocean fractal, where we spent half the night fighting the Maw, featuring once again the Asura's (Rijoo, Loreena, Oz) as masters of facial expressions and dramatic gestures, while the Norns (Dimat, me) remain modestly in the background. The second one is from the Broadway Musical "Five Cats in Ascalon", with Oz (blue-ish), me, Dimat (sitting), Loreena (far right) and sleeping Rijoo's hindside in front of us. This week Dimat's Raven was the happy pet featured in the picture (far left). Very noteworthy: Oz dropped a precursor in old Ascalon: Howl, howl, howl to the king!
  13. As a raven norn I can only encourage the "Nevermore"-project..
  14. UCLG Raids via Fractals Event 22 (2020-06-11) Not the fastest fractal run ever, but nonetheless a nice one.. We had to grind our teeth to best the pirates of Siren's Reef (tier 3), especially because we were constantly running into instabilities that granted boons without end today, but we kept the spirit and finally got it done. Cliffside und Molten Boss (both tier 3) went smooth then tho. Making use of this boost we also won the recommended ones for tier 1 through 3: Urban Battleground, Chaos and Molten Furnace. The picture emphazises once more on the Asura, with Loreena to the left and Rijoo to the right. Dimat and me seem not quite sure what to make out of Loreena's pose, while Georgo joined in with Rijoo's stern look, fit for every hero's poster. Dimat's owl was happy to be in the picture too.
