Details:
The Eternal Knights fellowship is hosting a world boss raid this Thursday! As such, all adventurers of Orbus (regardless of Fellowship or Level) are hereby called to help defeat this botanical monstrosity!

We shall gather in Highsteppe, near the Graveyard/House at 8pm EST and make our way to her spawn area around 8:15. (8pm Eastern = 7pm Central = 6pm Mountain = 5pm Pacific) http://itsalmo.st/#elongataopenraid

If you want to go to her lair in advance, that’s fine, but be aware that recently a large number of mobs have been added to that area, so it isn’t like it was before. Also, as we do have lower level players typically joining us for these, it’s helpful to have everyone stick together to cover each other on the journey.

Specific strat info will be given during raid prep to avoid spoilers on the forums, as generally requested by the devs.

  • All levels welcome, but the World Boss is level 20 so if you are significantly below that expect to be one-shot if you get hit. (World bosses have been cranked up significantly lately and balance changes exacerbate this)
  • If we are successful we may try to kill it repeatedly as it has a 5 minute respawn. (It’s also a 5 min respawn if we fail and it despawns)
  • Please be aware that in large group gatherings such as this with proximity chat enabled on everyone, it can become very confusing and difficult to coordinate, so during engagement prep and boss fight please keep ambient chatter and pre-prepped spells on wands to a minimum,)
  • This is still beta, so expect bugs, disconnects, lag, etc, so please be as patient and understanding with issues as possible.

Let’s close out the Orbus beta period with a bang and a dead giant plant monster! We hope to see you there!

I just did a quick server restart, as it looked like the zone was bugging out…

POST RAID REPORT!!

Dozens of brave souls of various levels, disciplines and Fellowships assembled in Highsteppe and marched upon the lair of Elongata!

It was pretty chaotic and though there were many deaths, thrice we did battle and thrice we emerged victorious!!

A couple quick call outs!

  • Thank you to my fellow members of Eternal Knights for helping to organize the raid, keeping me in giant potions, triggering the spawning sequence, rezzing, tanking and everything else!
  • A huge holy shit to Shiki for snatching victory from the jaws of defeat on the second Elongata battle through sheer force of will and insanity!
  • Thanks to Colonel and others for helping with guarding the flanks of the migration to Elongata!
  • Thanks to Daeresha and others for quickly calling out add spawns, even when deceased!
  • Thanks to Outlander for pointing out that if anyone has the Anthropologist quest active, it was probably spawning a lot of extra lizardmen! There wasn’t much we could do about it, but it’s good to know!

And lastly, I want to thank everyone for coming out to defeat this world boss! I appreciate that it can be frustrating getting instagibbed, but hopefully everyone had some fun and got a little taste of what is to come when we all enter Early Access and begin to conquer the world of Orbus in a live game!

(Also, if you got any good pictures or any good loot, please post them here!)

Did it crash/disconnect you all a lot after I restarted the server?
