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.

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.

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:

I think everyone would be interested in more concrete details (if available). However, please keep in mind that a far higher level of play is required from everyone for raids and no "we can carry person X through" is applicable. Atleast this is my perception (unless they dumped down the difficulty of raids) - happy to have a chat about current plans and everything around it. 😀

UCLG Raids via Fractals Event 30 (2020-08-07)

In the 30th edition of the UCLG fractals event we didn't have two or more groups running simultaneously, but one after the other.

At the usual time Eresch, Rijoo, Dimat, Visceryn and me rushed through the daily recs for tier 1 to tier 3 (Siren's Reef, Molten Boss and Deepstone) and then tackled the dailies on tier 4 (Swampland, Volcanic and Shattered Observatory), where Eresch pulled the rest of the group through every boss fight. We finished just in time for me to get invited into the next group with Aethelwyna, Kinzx, Moonie and Neluna. So we did the whole program again and it went great.

After a short break and being already way past midnight CEST, Neluna was replaced by a pick-up fractal god captioned Dragon and we set out to play the challenge mote on Nightmare scale 99. It took us a while, but with Dragon's pulling, some readjustments and a lot of wipes we finally made it though the fractal, with Dragon dealing the remaining 17 % of boss health solo and twice downed.

In the first picture below you can see the first group with (left to right) Visceryn, Eresch the Iboga, Rijoo in midair, me, and Dimat playing with her greatsword.

The next pictures show Aethelwyna, Moonie, me and our pets waiting for some readjustments being done, rather tired and not over-confident about beating the final boss.. and then the final boss (slain) behind Moonie, me, Aethelwyna, Kinzx and Dragon as Beatrice Thornheart.

There are no very concrete details so far, but what is in my head is this:

Currently we have about 15 people in the guild who have the gear and training to play tier 4 fractals without much sweat and are actually playing together as guild teams. Plus, we are working on establishing a foothold in the scale 99 and 100 challenge mote fractals.

So my ideas are this: Keep on working on the challenge motes, get more people into them, add some strike missions (to get the hang for playing in a bigger unit), get on discord voice (who isn't yet) and then start over training on selected raid bosses, with veterans like you and Eresch explaining and repeating mechanics as we go, trying to eliminate mistakes, spot weaknesses and give hints for everybody to improve.

So of course we had a UCLG Raids via Fractals Event 31 (2020-08-13)!

But... i missed the screenshot, so I took one here.

It shows me and the hat, Dimats moa bird and some crates for representing the others, a big one Tyger and a smaller one Georgo. And the guy from the Nightmare Fractal, being angry about something. We had a legendary pug with us till the end, who didn't complain at all and just slew the ice elemental with my bro, while I were rescuing the other tow. But I had the feeling, they could do it without me... and we made it back before the elemental was dead!

UCLG Raids via Fractals Event 32 (2020-08-20)

And of course we had a fractal event even this week. While Kinzx, Visceryn and Lithium, together with PUGs, had no problems at all vanquishing the daily t4s and recs, Rijoo, Dimat, Georgo and me, together with Eresch, had a bit of a hard time doing that, and succeeded only after a longish struggle. There are these days, I guess.

The screenshot therefore shows our party getting a lecture about how to fight the ice elemental in the Underground Facility fractal.

UCLG Raids via Fractals Event 33 (2020-08-27)

That was.. a very very smooth run. Eresch, Aethelwyna, Visceryn, Kinzx and me ticked off today's tier 4 dailies, nothing less than Shattered Observatory, Mai Trin Boss and Molten Boss, then Kinzx had to leave and we brought home the rewards for the recommended ones almost on our own.

In the picture you can see (from left to right) Eresch (only moderately in disguise) freezing on an insulation crate from the Snowblind fractal, Aethelwyna playing the harp, me, Visceryn with his newish Ad Infinitum and Kinzx (represented by the pristine fractal relics vendor golem, idolizing the prisitine job Kinzx is doing in any fractal group).

UCLG Raids via Fractals hits Raids (2020-10-10)

About a year after our first pointless attempt to kill Cairn the Indomitable in the Bastion of the Penitent, a full raid of UCLG guildies set out to finally beat him.

People, who had been geared up and trainend in countless fractals, alongside with a few veterans, and led by recently knighted Commander Aethelwyna, had virtually no trouble at all blasting the oversized legendary jade construct out of existence, as soon as everybody made it save gliding to the platform and not being disconnected by evil forces.

Only on a sidenote must be mentioned that the same group (except for Lithium, who we were waiting for), won all strike missions (except for cold war and forging steel) without any trouble as a warmup.

Harder perils and more difficult encounters are still to come and will be tackled.

But yesterday the Uncanny Legion completed the journey this event was designed for: through the fractals, into the raids.

In the picture below you can see the victorious raid (standing from left to right): Georgo, Eternal Abyss, Rijoo, me Tyger, Dimat, Eresch, John, Kinzx and Aethelwyna, with Lithium lying in front.

UCLG Raids via Fractals: Five bosses slain (2020-10-25)

After the first certified kill of a raid boss by a UCLG raid squad one week ago, the battle went on and I am proud to announce that during the past two weekends UCLG raid squads, led by Commander Aethelwyna, KUL, vanquished not only Cairn the Indomitable several times, but also the Mursaat Overseer, the Vale Guardian, Samorog and - today for the first time - Gorseval the Multifarious.

 

On Saturday, 2020-10-17, a UCLG raid with (from left to right in the picture below) Eternal Abyss, John (Amaryllis Sky), Raven (Antoria Pendragon), Dimat (Zandra the Grey), me, Tyger (Nadziela Yamarchant), Loreena, Kinzx, Aethelwyna, Georgo (Luna Svk) and Scion of Maya (Megalithica) killed Cairn the Indomitable and then proceeded braving spikes and jade chess pieces to tear down the resilient statue of the Mursaat Overseer.

The next day, Sunday, 2020-10-18, witnessed the raid - this time with my sister Rijoo and Lithium (Anabella Ultima) instead of Georgo and Scion of Maya - blackouted the Vale Guardian including all his clones, tiles and pylons after a long and hard battle (and after killing Cairn and the Mursaat Overseer). The picture shows the raid in the spirit vale ruins, resting after cleansing them from ghosts and spirits (if not from all the corpses, as the little snow leopard seems to be pointing out). Rijoo is lying to the left (no healing hat this time) and Lithium dancing in the background.

After one week of rest, on Saturday, 2020-10-24, a UCLG raid, this time with (all from left to right in the picture below) Dimat (Zandra the Grey), Georgo (Luna Svk), John (Amaryllis Sky), Aethelwyna, me, Tyger (Nadziela Yamarchant), Eresch (as a Chrono tank), Scion of Maya (Megalithica), Eternal Abyss and Loreena (hidden behind a wyvern wing, but you can see her mighty Asuran feet), tackled Samorog and almost made it in the first try. The second attempt succeded and you can see the victorious raid lined up in his arena.

Finally today, on Sunday 2020-10-25, we killed all the bosses mentioned before in a kind of a rush and then added Gorseval the Multifluent's tentacles to the collection of trophies. As you can see in the picture below, taken under Gorseval's dramatic canopy, Raven (Antoria Pendragon) and Rijoo moved into the squad for Georgo and John.
