Warleader Hegron:

Warleader Hegron - Range DPS - Stay huddled at WEST campfire/banner please to make it easier for clickers.

Warleader Hegron - when he at 35% HP~ Talendor flies away.  Raid move to platform WEST side to avoid meteors.  MTO move Hegron far EAST side of platform.

Warleader Hegron - Once we move to the platform (and out of the meteor storm), melee you may rush Hegron (who will be on the East wall) if you wish.

Warleader Hegron MTO: Tank at EAST campfire - When Talendor flies away around 35% Hegron - move Hegron to platform far EAST (don't get too close to wall though).

Warleader Hegron - Doomhammer Emote:

When Kar`Zok Warleader Hegron goes active, Doomhammer emote comes into play.

DO NOT CURE UNLESS ASSIGNED TO DO SO PLEASE.

We assign curer(s) to cure players via /tell and /vtell hotkey.  Make up a hotkey for one of the curers as indicated.  Ask Dimbly if you're not sure how to make the hotkey and/or ask in FLRaids or one of our other channels, thanks!

Assigned curers must be positioned AWAY FROM THE RAID.

Curing someone with Doomhammer will cause a TARGET AE around the CURER for 150k DD + Knockback + STUN.


Stage 4: Overking Bathezid - RANGE DPS ONLY - Not tanked



Meteor Click Team

Meteor mechanic comes into play during veteran adds.

Writeup by Dimbly:

I've been assigned to the click team, now what?

In order get the achievement  Stalwart Guardian you will need to successfully complete an EoE raid acting as a shield clicker.  As this event is heavily dependent upon successful meteor blocking, it behooves you to learn how to do it.  When you are appointed to the click team you will need to do the following:
  • Join flclickers:clickers.  You will be assigned a place in Team 1, 2, or 3.
     
  • Make a hotkey.  You will need to make a hotkey that clicks your Defender's Shield, alerts the channel that you have clicked, and then /vtells the members of the next team that it is now their turn. 
     
  • Loot a Defender's Shield from the /advloot window.  Defender's Shield drop after A Kar'zok Soldier is killed.  There are only 7 of them.  It looks like this:    Should you die or leave the zone, your shield will poof; Don't do that.
     
  • Move to the center of the meteor pattern that is nearest to campfire and hit your hotkey. (Play the .mp4 below)    The meteor pattern is large, red, and pulsates towards the center.  It's easiest to find the center if your camera angle is overhead or at 3/4 perspective.  Follow the diamond shaped voids to the center of the pattern.  You will need to coordinate with your teammate(s) to make sure that all of the meteors are blocked near the campfire without duplicating efforts.  When you click the shield it makes a conical green aura with a swirling purple base.
     
  • Continue to block the meteors when it is your turn.  The click on the Defender's shield refreshes every 115 seconds.

My suggested EoE strategy changes
#1 add a trigger in gina for everyone when the dragon flys away. when this happens instruction is to move the safe point to the safe ledge
#2 give 4 clickers to ranged dps. They have a channel and hotkey to push when they click, that includes the next player. everyone has a 2nd key that says to skip them and whos next. They only click while standing on the campfire
#3 give the other 4 clickers to the tanks. they do the same but rotate their click on the final boss. i realize they will miss some clicks but they are tanks and can deal with it.
#4 have 2 melee only dps people whos jobs are to drag dead bodies to the healers instead of damage. they need a hotkey to tell the other dragger they are dead so they get drug first.
#5 melee who cant do signifcant range damage can engage the final boss at their whim in melee range, but need to run out on doomhammer ae and meteors. hopefully we can get good gina triggers for these events to give people enough time to run.

My suggested EoE strategy changes
#1 add a trigger in gina for everyone when the dragon flys away. when this happens instruction is to move the safe point to the safe ledge
#2 give 4 clickers to ranged dps. They have a channel and hotkey to push when they click, that includes the next player. everyone has a 2nd key that says to skip them and whos next. They only click while standing on the campfire
#3 give the other 4 clickers to the tanks. they do the same but rotate their click on the final boss. i realize they will miss some clicks but they are tanks and can deal with it.
#4 have 2 melee only dps people whos jobs are to drag dead bodies to the healers instead of damage. they need a hotkey to tell the other dragger they are dead so they get drug first.
#5 melee who cant do signifcant range damage can engage the final boss at their whim in melee range, but need to run out on doomhammer ae and meteors. hopefully we can get good gina triggers for these events to give people enough time to run.

Thanks for the suggestions, Faldyarr. :)

Following the raid last night Dimbly and I worked out some positioning for when Talendor flies away.

Huevos picked out the trigger from log when Talendor flies off:

[Fri Oct 12 20:03:48 2018] The great dragon Talendor shakes his head and growls as he turns to leave.

When Hegron reaches 35% or so, from feedback, players noticed Talendor flew away around then.

Once Talendor flies off, the raid can move to the platform to avoid meteor strikes.  We'll have MT adjust Hegron proportionally towards the ramp (I'll go over this in prep with MTO).



Dimbly is handling the meteor clicks, so I'll leave your points for him to respond to accordingly.


See ya in game!

Thursday, October 18, 2018 - End of Empire Defeated!

Solid first win on this event!  Warleader Hegron briefly held us up, then we got it together for the win!

Awesome job everyone!

See everyone in-game! :)

Strategy Post Updated

Updated the strategy post to reflect our winning strategy!

Dimbly wrote up Meteor Click Team instructions (included in post).  If you find yourself assigned to the click team, the instructions are straight forward. :)

See everyone in game!

I have noticed, that the 1st wave shouldn't we balance the last 2 mobs? I usually try and work on the higher HP one so that we don't still have a soldier hanging around when the lifestealers go active.

Everyone needs to pay better attention to what they're casting when it comes to cures.  I was on curing doomhammer last night, and there were several times I would target someone to cure only to see they already had been.  This was after mentioning several times by Furro and myself to unmem/stop using ANYTHING with a cure component to it (I've seen it happen before, not just last night.  Not sure if Dimbly's noticed the same thing, or if we just had an off night).  Errant cures will continue to keep exploding the raid during that part of the event if we don't take better care of our casting.

Suggestion - make an EoE spellset and save it (kinda like some folks did for damsel/enslaver raids to make sure they always had disease/corruption unmemmed)  In that set, remove anything that cures.  ONLY load a cure if the RL tells you to.  This also means no AA cures, no self-only curing, nada, nothing, zippo.

Also, stacking .. we need to do a better job of staying that way as much as possible.  There were another few times the person needing cures had moved to the far back end of the raid .. if I got close enough for cure, I aoe the raid.  If I don't, they die.  In other words .. stay stacked.  Along with helping during that phase, it greatly reduces the chance you'll take meteor damage too .. besides it makes the click teams feel bad :(

We say it week after week .. follow MA, stay stacked, and don't cure except for the designated person.  As long as we follow those 3 simple rules, there's no reason we can't win this every time.

December 8, 2018 - Trigger Package Updated & Stragety Notes


Trigger Change:

Huevos recommended changing the 2nd Meteor warning from "Get in Green Shield AURA for Safety" to "Meteors Incoming".


Strategy Adjust - Hegron Stage:

Our strategy for Hegron stage has been adjusted.  But we want to test it out first to see how it works before updating the strategy post.

Overall, our biggest issue is primarily Meteor click failures.  Nothing against the clickers, it's a challenging role to nail the clicks.  Getting there! :)

See everyone in-game! :)
