PostSubject: When Doing "Boss" Runs ...   Wed Oct 29, 2008 9:45 pm

Guys,

I just wanted to relay a quite story to you all in hopes that you "Don't do what was done" on a Boss raid yesterday.

long story - not so short

I got invited into a pickup group of 23 other player to go beat on Biskra. I was excited, as it was my first time with this boss. I knew it wouldn't be gentle or sweet, but there was a "certain something in the air", so I went for it.
Other players in the group had experience with Squid-face so they had a good game plan down. Experienced players offered tips to those of us that were first timers and they really did their best to set up the alliances in a logical manner.

The fight starts and all is well. Aggro holds on the designated Tanks, Healers doing their jobs, Rogues disrupting, DPS blasting away.
When old King of the Dead Sea activates his doppleganger ability Group 3 breaks off of Biskra and proceeds to tear it apart.

Again no worries.

Then Squidy begins to use his "Dead Sea" ability. Now the problems start. Apparently, since last patch the edges of Dead Sea "fold" under the terrain, making them, in effect, invisible.

Now the bodies begin to pile up.

Once we figureed out what was happening we were able to avoid the Sea effects, to more or less some degree.
Anyway .... 1 1/2 hours later we Kill the MOFO! yeah! right on!

Loot time

Guess What .... The guy who has looting rights didn't set the Damn thing properly. It was on random.
So, about 7 people get gear (nice gear too) and the rest of us get xp and 13K lant

Now the bitching and moaning starts from the have-nots (I was silent, still basking in the glow of victory) They want rolls (and rightly so). So we are forced to exit Biskra's lair and spend the next hour killing crabs and crayfish - Rolling on their drops with a Biskra item attached to it.
eg. roll for crayfish meat and you get a coral staff. Lame!

The point of this story is:

If you start a Boss run or you are in a Boss Run, PLEASE make sure that the drop indicator is set correctly and that all members of your alliance are aware of what the looting procedure is BEFORE starting.

I had a good time, but the end took a lot away from the whole experience.


-Peace

PS- I died so many times my gear went from full durability to 0 (good thing I had back up gear on me). Lost about 7% of my level 61.
Squid-face hits hard!

Well, your first experience with Briska was entertaining, to say the least!
Did you get any good drops? I've never gotten anything there myself, as
it takes so many ppl to kill the damn squid, there's less of a chance to
get any drops. But it sounds like you had a good time! Very Happy

Other than Lant and XP (which was a fraction of what I lost).

NADA, zip, zero, nothing.

Still, I maintain that with the exception of the very end loot drop F-up, it was still a good time.

I've done Briska 4 times... not counting 1 time in Open Beta
Never have gotten anything from it. But still... good times.

When I did it in OB, it was a blast, cuz we had GMs go in with us!
