So I was sitting in with 8 other guilds this evening talking about how they want to make their own World drakes setup. The idea is pretty simple - we make a summoner network, we scout, and we overrule Hope's iron clutch on the drakes. All this sounds good so far - an even distribution in people at the raid, but bottom line this would be a serious attempt to kill some drakes. Do something different, yeah?
However: IF we are to sign up for this alliance, we would be expected to have scouting alts up on the spawns for a certain timeslot that would be in our approximate timezone. This would be approx 2 hours for our usual timezome, so I think that would be possible.
It will require us to have some summoner alts ready. Requires a lvl 20 warlock. Should be fairly easy to get there, should be need some.
So I guess the question for now goes; Would there be an interest? Feelings, opinions? Do note, I haven't signed us up for anything, but this is the thing that's being suggested.
I said yes to say that im interested that my guild is involved in world drakes. But I have to say that personally I won't be able to be online for the kill. I'll be online only during the night, weekends is another thing.
so if I say "yes" to this vote am I suggesting I am happy to be online with an alt at certain times of the day? or am I saying yes its a nice idea for us to be included in world boss attempts?
Who are the 8 guilds? are they talking 5 people per guild? how would they ever make a balanced setup to actually kill these things?
I thought you had said there was going to be a meeting tomorrow night at 22:00?
It was moved up to today, not sure why. I was pinged when I logged on being told.
Yes to the nice idea for us to be included in world boss attempts, not negative with the idea that we collectively as a team from Ascensions party would put together alts to scout. Assume that thinking this is a good idea also means you're saying yes to putting some effort into scouting etc. Of course, this would be something we do as a team.
Guilds are: Simplicite Rising Meme and Magic Ascension Taiga Stitchnado No target Complexity.
The idea at the time composition was discussed was vague, to say the least. I tried to get some people to elaborate, but as of right now, I cant say for sure. Most of the people present didnt even think we could get a 40 man squad up and running, which I think is awfully negative. I said that the idea of 5 man from each guild would be a good starting point, and noted as well how we would be doing tanks, for example. I have yet to receive any constructive feedback on this.
I'm not sure what a balanced setup would be for these drakes. I have never participated in killing one of them. I assume it would look like a regular raid, but I guess that's up for discussion as well - what does a normal raidgroup look like.
I will continue to ask questions in the worldboss discord that was posted. Im not satisfied with the amount of info so far either, as much as I would like to try and kill some different dragons. If we are to make an alliance with some of these other dudes then I need to know it'll be fair. Im not getting screwed over by some other guild because of silly favoritism.
I am happy to help, I can come online if I am near my PC and participate in klilling world bosses, as a hunter I am not really interested in the loot, and would be happy to try and get one of our casters/healers something good.
I am not happy to agree to some schedule where I login at X time and scout for Y mins each day.
