Rift 4.2 Raid Rifts and TD runs.

With 4.2 here the chance for grinding for better gear is back in full fury. We have all seen the cross events posts IROTP looking for members must have 1.21 giga DPS or be able to one shot raid bosses. The requirements and expectations of the Pugs is obsurd and boarderline delusional.

The average player with a 9 to 5 job and only a few hours each week of playtime is not going to even attempt raising their hand for these trolls to feast upon.  The chances of getting into the Pug are slim and it usually ends up in a bunch of finger pointing and tantrums of 10yr olds on summer vacation blamimg you because they stood in stupid and died. Since your lack of DPS forced them to encounter the actual mechanics of the fight.

Lucky for you your now reading this. For the last month I have been hosting events be it the TD grind or some other event in hopes of helping fellow guild members gear up and experience some actual end game content. Believe it or not we now actually clear TD and have witnessed the elusive engine drop on ocassion. Did we clear the raid in 30 minites or less no! However, a win is a win in my book and anyone says otherwise is most likely a troll.

Most of us are not looking for shard or world firsts though, yesterdays 4.2 release I saw < Gaiscioch> well represented in many shard firsts and there is pride to be had and congratulations to be offered. The rest of us are just happy to log on have fun and enjoy a challenge that gets the blood pumping as the boss has 1% health left and their are only 2 people left in raid alive. That is the suspense and sense of accomplishment I thrive for. One shotting a boss and clearing a raid like a famer mowing down crops in a shiny new John Deere is nice but not usually obtainable to the masses.

4.2 is here and the bar is now set higher TD is now available in a harder mode and we have Raid rifts to attempt.I will continue to host TD 2 days a week on Sunday and Wednesdays. I urge you to step up and help others continue where I have left off. We need new or old leaders to come forward and schedule a weekly Raid rift. Are we going to wipe you bet we will! Will we have fun along the way that I can guarantee you. I can't do this alone and I am willing to help but its time for others to take up the reigns and lead us to victory and some good times along the way.

If your reading this and rolling your eyes then I suggest you look for another event or guild. Were not here to be number 1 and best elite uber gods of rift. Were here to have fun and enjoy each others company and we strive towards a common goal. Besides nothing beats a good gut busting cacophany of laughter when one of us does something epic and runs off a cliff into lava or some other unpleasant demise. What makes us truly the best guild is that we can laugh at ourselves instead of others and have fun the entire time even if we dont get as far as we hoped. Though the next time we attempt we have learned and mentored others as well as contributed to helping make us all stronger and better. That is what makes Gaiscioch a family.

I'm not rolling my eyes. I'm clapping my hands and wishing I could get to your events. Count me as one of those that really can't play as much as I want to, but really enjoy the game even though I have only been playing a few months. I find it very daunting to try any of the new stuff unless it's part of a Gaiscioch event because I am just not on often enough to know who is doing what, or what even the "right" thing to be doing is.  My play time usually starts around 9:30pm Eastern once I have finished with family stuff, but unfortunately most scheduled events have finished by then.

Hope the post inspires others to join in. Love playing my Reaver but with the DPS nerf, I can't get the 300K dps needed to do Golems or ITROP pugs. But that doesn't matter in a guild run. Looking forward to the Normal mode TD and the new Raid rifts.
