  1. 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! 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 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 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. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  6. ENNUIGOOOOO... we miss you, friend! I hope you're doing okay. 

  7. Combat logs! Mine: https://www.esologs.com/reports/C1ZYFNv6KhLtPHGD Maezar's: https://www.esologs.com/reports/xAFMN8T7LcY2rBkn For some reason, the clear of the third boss has to be clicked on specifically under the drop-down menu for that fight. If you just look at "all clears," the log has a random add pull that occurred after the boss as the "clear." Make sure the top left corner reads "Archcustodian Veteran, Kill (3:58)" and not "Dissector Veteran, Last Pull - Wipe 20 (0:22)."
  8. DEATH by DAYLIGHT Veteran Halls of Fabrication Saturday, October 19th at 2:00 PM EST Whoa, whoa, WHOA... can it be? THE PINNACLE FACTOTUM met his end at the hands of the REMNANTS? Yikes... who knew victory would be so... messy? Is there a janitor or custodian who can come clean this crap up or some--wait, what? boom. Yep, that's right... the Pinnacle Factotum AND the Archcustodian ATE IT on our last run. Everyone put in the effort and we made it happen! The Pinnacle Factotum clear was messy as hell and we stayed almost an hour over to knock down the Archcustodian but we DID IT. Even better, it seems as though we developed a solid strategy for the Archcustodian! AMAZING WORK. In light of the amount of progress the group made last session, to preserve momentum and minimize time spent explaining mechanics in the interest of barreling toward a clear, those that attended the 10/12 session will be prioritized for this upcoming run. If you did not attend but still want to come, PLEASE indicate that you're available on Telana's spreadsheet; not everyone who attended last week will be able to attend this week!

  9. Those were actually the videos I was watching when I was looking at new strategies. Thanks, @jermz1804!

  11. FIRST things FIRST! Hi, everyone! A couple of things: Sign-ups are working a little differently now, as Telana posted in the forum. Please fill out your characters on this spreadsheet and put whether or not you are available for this week's run by TUESDAY at 11:59pm in order to facilitate having the roster up in a timely fashion. I'm going to be locking this thread just to make sure that folks are redirected to the spreadsheet to sign up. In order to make sure that we take advantage of the full three hours, please be on time for the raid. If you're not present at 2pm, we will begin to look for a fill. If you show up before we find one, you're more than welcome to join! We'd just like to make the most of the time we have allotted. In that same vein, we're going to be changing the end of the event; we'll no longer be having an open discussion about performance. Instead, the organizers of the event (myself, @Telana, @PWiddy, @Icy, and @Arcadian) will discuss performance and strategy; afterward, we'll be making a post outlining our thoughts on the run. We may be reaching out to you individually if there's something we'd like to address. If you have any questions about your performance or strategies, please let us know! Clearing this content is a team effort and we're all a part of that team -- everyone's voice is valuable. DEATH by DAYLIGHT Veteran Halls of Fabrication Saturday, October 12th at 2:00 PM EST Still workin' on that second boss... but we have some strategic jiggery-pokery up our sleeve. For example, we're eliminating the rezplar support role and see how we do without it. Hopefully the extra DPS will get us through. We'll see how it goes and continue to work on strategies and lineups as necessary. LET'S DO THIS.

WE GOT THIS.
  12. DEATH by DAYLIGHT Veteran Halls of Fabrication Saturday, October 5th at 2:00 PM EST SO CLOSE... we got the second boss down to 27%, WAYYYYY better than our previous best attempt. We're really making progress on the mechanics and I think that maybe, JUST MAYBE... this is the Pinnacle Factotum's time. You know, to die.

If you're DPS, please include if you're ranged or melee and stamina or magicka. Practice your witty banter and one-liners, folks, because THIS IS THE WEEK HE DIES.
  13. A good run! The first boss wasn't much trouble at all and we definitely have the upstairs mechanic down, as well as the tank mechanic with the shades... we got really close, with our best attempt being 27%! Once we manage the extra centurion adds, I think we're golden... and then we only have three more bosses! Should be a snap, right? Immediately noticeable improvements over last run: We got the first boss down on our third pull. Last run we burned them on our sixth. More consistently nailing the upstairs mechanic and the shade mechanic, which led to... ...our best attempt was 27%! Last run... 78%. That's amazing! Log: https://www.esologs.com/reports/4XhTczVg9vjynrbB (Jermz subbed in for Arcadian for the last few runs as she had some real life stuff to attend to)
  14. Warms the cockles of my chilly li'l heart to see guildies so eager to die alongside friends. Feel free to sign up as backup even though we're full! Best laid plans, etc...

  15. DEATH by DAYLIGHT Veteran Halls of Fabrication Saturday, September 28th at 2:00 PM EST We made some progress last time as we nailed down the first tough mechanic of the second boss just in time for me to murder everyone with the next tricky mechanic! We cancelled last week because, uh... we wanted to lull the fabricants into a sense of complacency so that THIS week will be smooth sailin'! Right?
