Looking to start a Fractal Powerleveling day

Curadh de na Capall Buí
Toros
Curadh de na Capall Buí
Posted On: 12/18/2012 at 08:36 AM

It has come to my attention that many of the family are  very low in the fractal levels . There are quite a few family members that are level 1 to 3. What I am looking to do is set up a day where I would run fractals with  people to try to get people to at least lvl 10. Fractal lvl 10 seems to be the easier medium for  all to find groups more readily. This would also help everyone complete there monthly  quest since it seems  fractals turn up  on them most of the time now. I know those under lvl 10 have severe disadvantages to finding people to do them with.  A few people have stated they will help me with this  event stolen thanks for your offer to help I will be  needing it. Ok here is how I want to set it up.

I want to  start in the mornings around 9 am or 10 am cst. I would like to run  at least 3 to 6 instances at one time. This would net the indivuals at least 1 to 2 ranks since you must complete 3 in a row to rank up for odd levels and 4 in a row for even levels. I will then ask the people in the group if they are willing to continue for another set of 3 to 4 depending on rank. I will continue this most of the day or until unable to form a 5 person group for the  fractal. This process will require some commitment on those looking to rank up because a set of 3 is at least 1 hr if everything goes smoothly.  If you  want to participate  be prepared to commit at least  2 hrs to the event please. I will post every event after its done so those can claim participation.

I would like to try and run the same people up to rank 10 if possible but I know this is unrealstic so  we will run this event on a first come first go basis. What I would like from those interested is to post on this topic what day would best work for you. At the end of this week Ill examine this post and the majority will set the day. I plan to start running these next week. So if your  wanting to  rank up a char with fractals please give me your feedback on day that is best for you. Thanks All. Have a happy Holiday season.

I would love to join in on this (as would my son), but unfortunately, I have to work all next week (except for Christmas eve and Christmas, and those are reserved for family). I am in the EST time zone, and am normally available to start something at about 3pm Server time. Thanks for thinking of us Fractal "lowbies." Hopefully, we can get something put together.

I'm interested but I work weekdays. I could maybe do some this Saturday (22nd), or Sunday (23rd) evening (after 4EST). Wednesday (26th) is a definite possibility during the day as well as evenings on tues/wed/thurs/fri (25th-28th). Saturday 29th I'm free all day also (and Tuesday Jan 1st). One question on Fractals, you said: "you must complete 3 in a row to rank up for odd levels and 4 in a row for even levels" I went in and did a lvl 1 fractal, we beat the Grawl Shaman, the Charr Assaulting the City and the Dredge with the Buttons before being brought back to her lab. Does that mean I completed 3 in a row and am lvl 2? or do I need to beat 3 runs, each with 3 scenarios to advance to level 2? God I hope not.

If you did the 3 mini dungeons in a row (Grawl Shaman, Charr Assualting the City, and Dredge) then that is a fractal level, and you can now participate in fractal lvl 1 (aka start from the beginning) or fractal lvl 2 aka a bit harder with a bonus 4th mini dungeon at the end. After doing 4 mini dungeons in a row at lvl 2, you can then participate in lvl 3 so on and so forth with lvl 3 being odd having only 3 mini dungeons to complete. Every even fractal lvl has a 4th mini dungeon (and gives bonus fractal relics, I got 50 from doing lvl 2 the other day total i believe). Even levels also have a bonus chest with better loot, that can be repeated daily which is why many like to do the even numbered fractals, the issue is you've gotta do the odd ones to get to the even ones, at least that's where i get stuck needing to do lvl 3 to get to lvl 4 so on and so forth.

Sounds like a great idea. I'm PST so that puts it around 7am, for which I am usually online for a couple of hours... but my kid starts holiday break tomorrow, so I may not be up that early for a couple of weeks. I'd love to do more fractals, I'm currently @ level 3 on my Necro, Zuulnasta, but the few LFMs that I see are almost always 10+, so this would be a huge help I think.

My engineer is only a level 2 on the fractals and I would love to participate. Next week I'm tentatively off the whole week, but Thursday/Friday would be better as I'll be back home to my better performance desktop PC. Since there are so many people interested, we could always organize additional groups to go. :)

I am off until after New Years so early in the morning would be great while the wife and daughter are still at work/school. Will you be announcing this in guild chat before you get started as I will make a point of looking for you.

I would also like to run fractals. I'm server time and would be able to work with times. I do need afk for a few between runs due to health issues though. I hope this won't be an issue. It's hard for me to sit for long periods of time without getting up and walking around for a small amount of time. It this is an issue I will understand. Kittara (Elementalist)

Crash Ill try to put in on the calendar after we get a idea of what day would be best. Kit no worries on that we can take a cpl mins break after each instance I have severe health issues also so I cannot sit for hours on end either. Ok guys I am excited alot of people are interested in this event but what I really need from you guys is to narrow down your preference for the days to run please to 1 to 2 days a week. I thankyou for your patience in this process also. I personally am looking at Mon & Wed. But that is just me throwing an example out there. I would like to have an idea of what 2 days others are thinkiong are the best days. That way I can pick the best 2 choices based on a majority. If by the 23rd of Dec we do not have the 2 days set I will set them for Mon & Wed. So please post your imput if you have better idea's for the days. I also wanted to let people know I plan oin trying to run this all day and into the night if possible so you dont have to get there right at 8 am to 9 am cst. That is just when I intend to start them. Thankyou all see you in game.

Ill still be starting this next week monday but I uinderstand people will be b usy with family. I would like to let people know this will be ran every mon and wed until such time that we cannot field anymore groups. The initial goal is rank 10 when everyone has obtained that goal we will switch our priority to rank 20 and so on. The next 2 weeks will be trial and error to work out the bugs and get a feel for what needs to be done to run these efficiently. Therefore after the 2 week break in period somethings might change but the days will not. Hope to see you all there. PS no one has to state they cannot make it on a certain day this event is going to be a first come first serve event and not require a sign up. I only wanted initial imput so I could set the days up where the most people would benefit. Eventually I would like to set up permanent fractal groups to handle the 30+ zones but that is another subject.

Its just raid call Iceblaze, it has its moments, but given its free and we can put a lot of people in there its pretty good and generally reliable. As far as today goes its Christmas Eve so everybody's availability today will be a bit off, I was up super late doing baking for Christmas day personally, though I'll be on shortly and can make a group if people want to do one in the next while.

I am sorry if you did not get a chance to go this morning with the fractal event. This is going ot take alittle time to work out the kinks. I ran 2 groups through basically 7 mini dungeons this morning then had an unexpected family event that made me have to stop for a few hours. I am back in game now and looking to resume the fractal leveling . I am planning to try and maybe get a team going that will be able to run multiple groups at one time but until that happens we can only do 1 group at a time. I intend to do what did today for each day in the event every week I will try to run a AM event and then come back and run a PM event. I suppose the holidays isnt the best time to start this but I promise I will try to improve on it weekly until we get something steady and consistant where we can make as many family members happy as possible. So please bare with me for now in the long run I want to get everyone p[ossible to 10 + rank.

hi, if there's only one group, and 9 people shows up, what determines who goes and who doesnt? I am new so I might not know everyone's in game character, who's Toros main character? I just want to make sure I reach out to the right people. I am usually on Slim Shaydy (my thief) in game lately, if that helps with dungeon leaders to coordinate. thanks.

I'm assuming his main is on his profile under gw2, you can click his name on the forums to get there, looks like Taloros. Everyone should try to keep their char profile up to date. Usually for stuff like that its first come first served so to speak, and if you've got 9 show up usually you'll ask in guild chat in Anu and then in your sections to find a 5th to round out and do 2 groups if possible. :)

Well, see the problem with doing these as "calendar events" is that folks think the leader can lead more than one group at a time. With the 5 player limit on groups, its just not possible for someone to "lead" more than one group. Sure you can put several groups together, but the "event leader" can only focus on one group, the one he is with. Since a leader technically has to physically lead the group they are with, having a second, third or fourth group running by themselves isn't going to work for event credit and actually defeats the purpose of any kind of training or power-leveling event. My suggestion: Make these dungeon and fractal events 5 player sign-ups. If someone wants to run several groups throughout the day, just note it in the calendar description, give approximate times for each new group and make them "first come, first served" after the initial group. If its possible to create several events throughout the day, then you can have sign-ups for those, but I am not sure if that's possible, or allowed. If Anet ever puts in raids, then these type of events will be a bit easier to work with. Right now, its kind of frustrating to arrange to be online for the "event", just to find out the group is filled.

Yes I am taloros in gw2. What I have been doing is first come first serve. Also make sure you are in Anu at the time event starts because its the pve guild so I only spam that channel for people interested. I know that this is can be alittle frustrating but as its been stated above its hard to event lead more then one group. I am working on seeing if maybe a copule others would be interested in running groups and leadership for others and just make a Fractal training team. That team would share the credit and that for running these events and just have the days stay the same. For now I will change the description to read 5 man event to clarify for everyone. I do still intend to be on all day and some of night to try and run multiple events to get as many people as can ranked every mon and wed.

Using calendar to schedule is still very helpful, because if its noted, then we know that its going on all day. That's good to know that you're only using Anu, too. That way, we can hop in there and query about the event status, whenever we're interested in running one. I just found the same issue with the story and beginner dungeon events. I know that the event organizers mean well and are trying the best they can, with what they have to work with. :)

If your rank Lorgair or above you can set your preferences on your profile to indicate pve and you'll get a guild invite to the Na Anu guild section, just like the Na Rall for pvp. The only issue with messaging only Anu is that new members can't see it. For party stuff yes the event organizer doesn't get credit for each group but that's less of an issue as long as it gets going for everybody that's really whats important in my opinion. You can use raid call to by pass some of the issue to figure out whose leading each group and to check in with the event leader when your group needs another member or two, to figure out how to go about filling the spot to keep training.

Fog changed the guilds but they have not gotten everyone changed over yhet. Anu is the PVE and Rall is supposed to be pvp. There is nolonger a rank associated with anu or rall according to his post . That is why I changed it to spam in anu I had thought everyone had access to it but maybe was mistaken. I dont have access to any other guild but Anu and Rall so I cannot look for members in the others nor do I even know where to start looking in those. I guess the best way will be to show up online at event start and send a tell to taloros for now. I do spam to Anue when short on members. I will see if I can maybe get an invite to other family channels to be able to spamm there also.

You should be in either funny i or non funny i along with anu and/or rall, very weird. I'm in funny i myself along with anu and rall. Don't forget to set your play time preferences so they can place you in funny i or regular i. Those who play late and the aussies are on funny i along with other people to fill the guild up of course. Had a friend just join and he didn't have access to anu or rall, though he could have missed setting preferences or the max number if invites could have been out since there is a limit, though to the best of my knowledge that's the current setup.

@Iceblaze: The two New Member ranks, Treubh and Muinntir do not have access to na Rall or na Anu. Once they reach Lorgair rank and have filled out their website profile, the system will flag the Elder's, and they'll get their invites. @Toros: The only room you do not have access to is "normal i". There are four rooms and only the Elder ranks have access to all four, AFAIK. @Zoe: Sorry, I misworded re: the leader getting credit, it was an afterthought I added in, probably should have not included that, since more people participating has no bearing on leader credit. True, more people getting involved is a great thing, but if its just one person trying to "train" or lead for a single group event, then making other groups isn't really beneficial, unless someone is there to lead them. Now if 2-3 experienced leaders want to get together, create an event and each lead a group, then yea, an "open to all" calendar event is a fantastic idea. But if someone is just trying to fill a single group, then it should be noted on calendar event that its single group and the first five to sign up, get a spot.

Well I am trying to basically get as mainy people I can used to running the fractals a certain way so that they have an easier time completing fractals at higher levels. I have been trying to run them all day or as long as possible only acception was yestewrday we lost power for most of the night so could not get back on. I dont want to have it be a set 5 man group because I am workiong with trying to set up a fractal team like you have been hinted at in this thread. There has been interest expressed of people who are rank 20 + willing to help with this so Until I can talk wiht them and wqork otu if they really are wanting to take on that responsibilty then I will be running it how I have been. On Wed we did have someone else running a fractal group but that was not associated with the event. In the next week or 2 I will try to see if can maybe get this more structured. By getting maybe another person to help me to form a fractal training team that can break off and do multiple groups on the selected days. I dont want people to think this is a set group running is why I left it open . I also am around most of the day and coming back at night to run fractals also on those days. I apoligize for the Anu misunderstanding and I know only elders get invited to all the channels. I was always scratching my head though about how I hear people talking about the other channels when I was only in Anu and Rall. The PVE and PVP guilds. Its probably why I keep missing people during the event days. I will keep this going for now and tweek it by your suggestions to try and get something that will work for more people. This is alittle different then running an open world event so its going to take alittle time to work out the best possible solution. When I orginally set this up my dream was to make people more aware of the fractals and to give those trying to level up a day or 2 were they could plan to run them and easily find a group. it seems to be working well in that aspect at least. I just want to keep people ranking up. Its starting to pay off we are getting alot of people into the 4th and 5th rank now so that at least is one thing. Like I said please bear with me I am trying to work everything out and I greatly aprecciate the advice.

Well thanks to Toros I got my Rank 2 on Christmas Eve but I couldn't find any other runs going on to get to Rank 3 and higher so if anyone needs another for a Rank 3 group look me up.

I understand and appreciate your trying to work something like this out. It is different than Open World/WvW events because they're not instanced or limited to 5 people. I don't want to come across as just being a critical jackwagon, but I would like to resolve an issue that I've been running into as a potential participant in these types of events. I watch the calendar for events, and try to show up for the ones that interest me, especially the ones that involve helping with dungeons and fractals. Those are two content areas that I don't do much of, but am wanting to do more. So, I'll show up for these instanced "training/introduction" events, only to be told "group is full, but you're welcome to form another and do it on your own". Ok... well I can do that any time of day, but the reason I came to a "training/introduction" event, was because I *am* a noob to this particular content and I was expecting someone experienced would lead myself and three other noobs through the dungeon. Five dungeon noobs fumbling their way through an instance, defeats the concept of it being a "training" event. Its a great idea, I definitely support it, and if I was experienced in this area of the content, I'd volunteer to help, so that the "oddmen out" had someone experienced available to lead them. But I've seen other threads where folks indicate they'd like to form these kinds of "training" events, and speaking as a potential participant, its frustrating for us to show up and be told that the group is full, but we're welcome to form another and discovering that there's no one experienced to lead us. The only solution that I see, is to coordinate with 2-3 other experienced dungeoneers, then schedule and co-lead these types of events. I know they'd be a guaranteed hit. But just one person doing it, isn't going to work out, beyond a single group. Back to the calendar, if I see it noted on the event, that its just one leader and one group, then I know not to plan on coming, because there won't be anyone to lead another group. Also, for folks who might like to help these guys lead these instanced events, they can add you as "co-leader" and you'll get Leadership credit for helping out. I don't know if that's of interest or not, but its a great way to get points if you are interested in moving up in the Warlord ranks.

I also have to express my frustration here, ever since this event was introduced, I have logged on the right time and have never able to join that "first" group. Today, I logged on and was in the dungeon goup channel with Toros and have messaged both in raidcall and in game, no response. 10 minute later after another whisper, I was told the group is full but if I wait I might get a spot. The funny thing is 4 other people joined in the raidcall channel after me, yet the group was formed without I was able to get an answer. Perhaps I am still new (only been in guild for 2 weeks), so maybe there's a bit of politics involved. I guess my real question is, what have I done (or not done) to able to join on dungeon events? It seems there's always a bunch "regulars" that get into a group, while other have to wait in line, even if the person logs on at the right time and in raidcall. Since my vacation time will be over after Tuesday, this event will no longer be possible for me to join, if anyone that plays EST, I am usually on 9PM EST to 1AM EST, if any of you guys FOTM level 6, please send me a tell. In the mean time, I guess I can back to do pickup group. thanks for reading.

While I am sorry I did not get you into group right away when I fist logged into raidcall I went afk to finish doing my meds same with logging on to game. I do not start asking for people to join the event until 9 am. Even if I log into the game before then because I have to do a few things medically so I can sit down and play those long extended periods. I most likely missed your tells and saying something in rc . I am sorry if missed you asking for group. I am only 1 person and when I spam anu for the invites I take the first 4 people that speak up in guild chat. I know this is not the best system possible my orignal intention was to set up a permanent fractal group with people that played during my playing time. but decided to do this instead to help more people. I honestely never expected so many people to be interested in it at the start which has lead to issues because people assume its like other events. Unfortunately it seems that since it was posted to an event slot its starting to cause friction. If this continues I'll remove it from the events list and just run personal fractals on mon and wed. No event is worth causing rifts in the family. I am still trying to find aonther to hellp in the morning to run these so if your interested just message me in game or say something in this thread. Also looking for maybe someonme that would run something at night for those people who cannot run during the day.
