I know people are looking in various directions with the atma farming and myth farming it brings on, and that's cool, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to break the tedium up by getting turn 5 practiced until beaten.

It's a challenging fight, but moreso because it requires a party get used to it. If you're interested in getting that turn behind you, post here, and with enough interest I'll set up a date. Without enough interest here I'll randomly spam it until we have a group.

Of coarse I do...
We tried Friday night..

I needed to watch a video since it has been a while... I was a little unprepared.. I will be more prepared for the next run..
Only thing is now Tess will be out of town for about a week and a half starting Thursday and she wants this too... Does not mean I can not run it but if we pass we need to get Tes through after..

Anyway anyone who wants to do turn 5 needs to be geared.. Please dont even sign up if you dont have the proper gear. Spend time getting it especially tanks and healers. Turn 5 they hit like a truck.. Right now df and party finder is not bad for turns 1 & 2 and spamming them is easy to get that gear. Get tomes for I90 gear for the rest if need be.. you dont need to be I90 exactly but the closer you are the better for everyone and the gear at I90 is now supper simple to get.

If you are under geared it just makes it harder on everyone and sets us up for a better chance at a fail.. This turn even with the buff you can not be carried through...


I dont think turn 5 looks as hard as turn 4 it is just longer and they hit far harder. It seems like a lot less mobs.. More of a remember what to do when.... But tanks and healers have to be on their toes.

I also would not mind doing turn 4 especially with the buff, should make it easier.. Could use some gear from that turn... Plus I am sure others really need the win for that turn...

T5 is a huge test on how you handle the mechanics of the encounter during each phase with small dps checks tossed in during some. I can tell you this in my T5 clear a few weeks ago, the lowest ilvl of the party was 91....... we cleared it with less than 10 seconds on the enrage timer (13 minutes is the enrage timer.... this was also with the 10% echo buff).

This is a turn that you will need to spend some time on to get the mechanics down, timing and placement for various phases. Even with the next echo buff (15%) increase don't expect it to be a push over and breeze through for the win if the group isn't experienced in the encounter.

As always if your group needs a hand, shoot me a tell if I'm online.... will help if not involved in another event.

I'm, guessing Friday it is.
If that's a problem post and we'll see what option the most of us can work out.
Nothing says it can't start early and end with different people either.

I have this weekend off, so I am willing to try and get a group together either Saturday or Sunday or both. I'm not sure if I will be able to make Friday night. I'll let you all know tomorrow.

So are we going to turn into a "You're not geared enough for this noob. Go do something else." free company?

God I hope not. I don't wanna be in a FC like that. If DF lets you in you should be able to come.

I think turn 5 is i82 or i83 so the requirement is not light.

That was my thought. If you are geared enough to used duty finder to enter then you should be able to sign up.

As far as ilvl goes, that's best left to individuals to determine if they need more than they got.
IMO.
You DO need the accuracy on tank/dps, though.

DF will determine if anyone's getting in or not.
We can parse out better geared/skilled/experienced players to set random groups up to try and get their win if things don't work out, but either way it's going to take a lot of tries and learning before we down it. I'm happy to have people in there.

Can never have enough footage when heading into T5 - This was last night before 2.25 dropped, only my self and Lox had the clear in the group.

I just think Fridays comes to mind first since it was a day enough of us previously agreed upon. Doesn't have to be 11. Or it can be.

Honestly too me Friday is the worst especially late..
I have been busting my butt at work bad lately and by Friday I am burned out and tired.. I am not 100 percent that late on Friday.
Plus with summer I am gone more on the weekends in the summer I still play allot during the week but once summer hits allot less on the weekends.

Main reason we played late is that is when Kez could be on..

Kez had mention he had been getting burned out on the game.. Maybe he is just taking some more time out..
I know the whole atma thing has me burned out and wanting to get on less right now..
