in General Chat

Have you done your research on CDev? Have you already played it before? Is your GS just at the bare minimum? Proper attributes like boss damage? Have a guild prepared to run with? Does your guild have compositions created for better chance of success?


This is a judgement-free zone. Let me hear your tales and woes.

    Even double drop event couldn't help me getting kanduras pendant or good accuracy gear but I think I'm fine. My guild is still lacking enough geared people for the raid

    If you have Scion of Light as a furniture design, it's an extra 4% pierce. I don't think that many will reject 14%.

    I'm a thief main. I START getting the rest of my equipment tomorrow. 3k gs and 3.5k attack, now I can run dungeons and not get destroyed by the fair fight mechanic, or (hopefully) kicked by my party for just being a thief. Hopefully.

    I would think that most people who are geared for Chaos raids know that priests going in should not be specced for pure dps.

    I dont understand why anyone would even expect the support to make damage. the role of the support is to support and make sure that the dps can do dps with less deaths in the process.

    I think many people are going to be sorely disappointed when trying CDev tomorrow. I see maybe 1 out of every 20 4500+ players being properly geared for the fight. I expect GD to be on fire tomorrow with an angry mob of people that are upset because their minimum effort, minimum gearscore characters can't clear CDev.

    To answer your question, I had to delay our guild raid for now. We just aren't ready. I see so many people shouting in world chat with "Raid Ready guild looking for Knight!" and whatnot, then I'll look at the person who shouted and they'll be 4700gs with 82 accuracy and a +12 weapon. I think they should have waited a bit before releasing the raids, and bunched them in with the December update. A large majority of players just aren't going to stand a chance in there tomorrow. Not that the fight looks hard, beating the timer just looks really tough, nigh impossible if you don't have the accuracy to hit the boss.

    Everyone uses Scion of Light, it's basically common sense. People will look at how much pierce you have without it, and using it won't give you any advantage over anyone else.

    I've upgraded my epic shoes to +15 to hit 5000 gear score on my berseker
    my weapon is still +9 but people are not smart enough to care.
    It is always"looking for 4k gs dps" never "looking for +13wep dps"

    Meanwhile I'm ready to laugh at the possibility of everyone being massively overprepared for Cdev.

    ...and awaiting the 8k or so Gearscore Fire Dragon party ads.



    ...As I wait for Soul Binder alongside the realization that I'll have to grow my gearscore all over again.
    The ride never ends.

    With the amount of people that have asked me why my pierce doesn't match the attributes on my gear, I'm pretty skeptical it's "everyone." Plenty clearly don't know about it since they're still learning about the game.

    I can agree about the accuracy. I managed to hit 90 but most people in my guild are at 82-85 since everyone put so much emphasis on other stats. I think not many people are going to value it until they see the raids hit. I would say a team of +12 DPS should be enough though. The clear video showcased what seems like a team of +11s and they almost managed it.

    I rarely, if ever, see people look for 4k "gs dps". It's usually either 4k gs or 4k dps. I, myself, look for dps as gs says little about the potential damage you can output. Of course player skill and experience matters a lot, but with the plain numbers we are given, higher dps is the most reliable in general (pierce and accuracy would contribute a big part to the damage in chaos raids too).

    Ok so.. does priest have to worry about piercing, dmg, accuracy?? Or not? My gs is over 4500 but. Other stats are below the requirement. I can support, but if people say, Im not allowed in raifs party because I lack dps.. then I dont know what to say.
