  1. DEATH by DAYLIGHT Veteran Halls of Fabrication Saturday, December 14th at 2:00 PM EST After being completely foiled last session by Discord dropping a big ol' deuce right as we were getting started, we're heading back this weekend to remind a certain set of fabricants that their time in Tamriel is finite... well, at least till the trial's over and they re-spawn. BUT THEY DON'T NEED TO KNOW THAT... or maybe it would be better if they did? Knowing that their death isn't permanent might lower the stakes enough for them to be lulled into complacency... hm. Loremaster @Icy!! Any thoughts on the existential crises and resultant existential malaise faced by our Fabricant foes and how they may be used to our advantage? kthx! Mind/circuitry games aside, we might be a little rusty since it's been a minute since we've really run the trial. Despite this, I'm confident we can build on our previous successes and, at the very least, smash the Pinnacle Factotum to bits. Requirements -Read this post and /sign the thread, indicating you agree to this event's guidelines- -Fill out the availability spreadsheet as per this post- Appropriate food/drink and potions Full sets of purple/gold gear (Two 5-piece + monster set or intentional partial sets) Raid Notifier and Team Formation add-ons For DPS: 25K DPS parse (pre-patch!) on a 3 mil dummy (available at @PWiddy's primary residence) 18K+ health with food/drink buff Take a screenshot of your dummy parse and get in touch with @PWiddy or @Arcadian For healers: CP 810 The Energy Orb morph of Necrotic Orb A purge ability or two 18K+ health with food/drink buff At least a couple of set options available (including monster sets) e.g. Olorime, Sanctuary, Mending, IA, Worm Cult, Jorvuld, etc. For tanks: CP 810 A purge ability At least one crusher enchanted weapon (preferably 2H, bow, staff in infused) At least a couple of set options available (including monster sets) e.g. Ebon, Alkosh, Torug's Pact, Plague Doctor, Yolnahkriin, etc. Also!

  2. Discord... the Sadmaker. Thanks for coming out everyone, including @Rain Cloud! Disappointed that technical issues once again thwarted our raid attempt but, hey. What can you do? There will be a post up sometime in the near future about an attempt next week, so update your availability on the spreadsheet! YOU FOLKS ARE THE BEST FOLKS.
  3. No worries! Just vote when you've got it all sorted out, @Elisel! I'm offended that you think that's a Canadianism, @TMUMT... definite Philly jawn there (and probably most of the NE/Mid-Atlantic).
  4. DEATH by DAYLIGHT REMNANTS! Come out to PLAYYYY... Hi, folks! [stops ominously clinking bottles together] I noticed there's some of you folks in our interest group who haven't yet read and signed the guidelines and/or included your info on the spreadsheet as per Telana's post. You should look into it and come join us! If you feel like you're not ready for the endgame content we've been running, you should still consider signing up as backup! While we try to keep rosters at least semi-consistent so it's mostly composed of folks who know the mechanics to keep everyone's lives easier, there's times we don't fill and we end up cancelling. Recently, we asked someone to run vAS with us who felt they weren't ready for it and we sailed through it twice... we didn't even wipe the second go-round! Every run is a learning experience for those involved, whether it's their first time or if they've breezed on through before. We have no problem explaining mechanics to those who need or want it and, as explained in the guidelines (and implied in the name of the event), deaths are to be expected. You're no longer going to be included in the main post tags so that you're not assailed by notifications for events you may not even be interested in. I'm tagging you folks here instead and you'll be added to the main group tag if you'd like to come and play. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me (a tank!), @Telana (a healer!), @PWiddy (a DPS!) or @Arcadian (also a DPS!). In no particular order, although likely the order on the member list:
  5. DEATH by DAYLIGHT POLL TIME! Saturday, November 30th at 2:00 PM EST Hi, friends! While the US prepares to celebrate its Thanksgiving holiday next weekend, some of us are not! For those of us who don't celebrate, those of us who don't have family we're going to celebrate with, or perhaps even some of us who will just need a break from the festivities, I wanted to conduct a poll to see if people are interested in running an event anyway. If we can get a group of 12 together, cool! We can do a raid! If there's less, we can figure something else out. So, what say youse folks?
  6. BELOVED DEATHIES! Congratulations on the thorough stomping of Saint Llothis the Pious Dead, St. Felms the Bold DEADDDD, and Saint Olms the Just DEAAAAAAAADDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD last week! [wipes spittle from chin] Sorry, got a little excited there... anyway, special thank you to @jermz1804 for jumping in to fill a DPS role and telling us what's what and @Circe for letting us drag her into the Asylum against her will. Two successful runs, the second wayyyyy smoother than the first. Excellent job! (Logs for run one and run two!) There will be no official unofficial event this week as three of the leaders (myself, @Telana, and @Arcadian) will be out of town along with some other guildies (like @TMUMT!). Please fill out the spreadsheet with your availability anyway if you're interested in coordinating an event during the timeslot without us! Even if you can't get 12 folks together, vDSA and vBRP are challenges worthy of the DBDL moniker, along with countless vet dungeon achievements. We'll hopefully be able to get something together for next Saturday, the 22nd, before likely taking another week off for American Thanksgiving. If there's enough interest that weekend, I'd be more than happy to run something.
  7. Hi, folks! There's not going to be a Death by Daylight event this upcoming Saturday due to people being unavailable, so go out and enjoy some of this fall weather!
  8. DEATH by DAYLIGHT Veteran Aetherian Archive Hard Mode AND Veteran Hel Ra Citadel Hard Mode Saturday, October 26th at 2:00 PM EST Hi, Deathers! As those of you who were there last session may recall, our run was beset by technical difficulties and emergent real life stuff. Special thanks to @jermz1804 and @Adamant_Unicorn who subbed in while people dealt with stuff! We nailed the second boss and got a couple of attempts at the third boss before having to stop. Unfortunately, the fates conspired against us and we were unable to make it to the fourth boss. I know that had we been able to nail down a solid three hour run it would have been very different. Everyone did excellent, especially considering the frustrating circumstances. That said, as many of you are already aware, there are massive DPS changes (again) coming with the patch that drops on the 21st. Overall DPS numbers are expected to drop significantly due to DoTs being nerfed as well as sustain becoming way more challenging. As such, we're going to take a li'l break from vHoF to see where we are in terms of performance and get our bearings. We've decided we're heading to vAA HM, something RoH's conquered before in official events, and vHRC HM, something I don't think has been done by the guild before! If people are feeling good about how this upcoming week's performance shakes out, we can certainly head back to the Halls the following week; we can also decide to do something else entirely if we feel that we're not quite up to that challenge yet. Make no mistake, though... we'll be back to the Halls of Fabrication sooner or later and we will KILL EVERYTHING. Let myself, @Arcadian, @PWiddy, or @Telana know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns!

  9. Here's the write-up I did last night: https://docs.google.com/document/d/11wL6sa6fcPY_isAyHp2UqaidFAhP5Crhsf9nMFGLcK4/edit?usp=sharing Familiarize yourselves with these two fights as much as you can and we can devote less time to explaining and more time punting fabricants into Oblivion!
  10. Seeing as we're pretty much the GOAT, we should also review strats for the last boss, the Assembly General. Here's Asian God's video: As he mentions in the beginning of the video, they're actually doing hard mode here. We won't be attempting hard mode... this time. The mechanics are pretty much the same in both modes; hard mode has some extra adds and everything hits harder and has more health. Watching the video, you'll notice that the fight is WAY less mechanic heavy than the fourth bosses: it's the same deal over and over until a stationary execute phase. Just as for the Refabrication Committee, we'll be banging out a written guide to help us out. I hope you're all excited... the light at the end of the tunnel's coming at us fast.
  11. DEAREST FELLOW DEATHERS... I have a video for all of us! It explains the insane mechanics of our new quarry, the Committee. We're also writing a guide based on the videos we've watched for those of you who learn better through reading, although I think everyone can benefit from seeing the fight in motion. Take heed, as there are many, many ways for us to die in this encounter. The positive? If we got this... we super got the final boss. Good thing we got this.
