So, tonight was the first night of the new Coils static I had joined. The one running it joked that we were going to progress through Coils 1-5 and I thought hw was crazy. I had tried Coils 1 and 2 MINE and failed at both, so I was a bit wary. But it turned out that he had run many Coils statics before and knew what he was doing.
Both Coils 1 and 2 were a little rough with wipes, but we managed to get clears on them in about 6 tries each. I was honestly surprised how efficient it was. It could have been quicker, but dumb mistakes were made, causing wipes.
Coils 3 was a VERY wacky portal race, especially on MINE level. We were going all OVER the place, with people getting lost, triggering monsters, and basically laughing their heads off at the silly antics.
Coils 4 was a bunch of adds which hit HARD at MINE level. But it was not that hard and only took us 2 tries to clear it.
By the time we got to Coils 5 it was about 9:40 pm and the static time ended at 10 pm, which was good since I had to get to work after it was over. We did a couple of pulls just to see what it was like and YIKES! It is HARD! Yeah, it is going to take a LOT of tries to do that one probably.
All in all though I found it a lot of fun and challenging to do. Of course being level 50 stuff, I don't have too much in my healing kit, and barely ANY instant healing, just regen and Benediction. I honestly used a LOT of cure 1's to save on MP since MP user is REALLY tricky in those because of how hard the creatures hit and the reliance on GCD's Relying on Cure 2's too much will run you dry!
Next week; the continuation of Coils 5.
LOL, that's pretty funny. We had spots we stood on separated from one another and quickly went to the next player at 7 seconds to pass on the rot. It worked well enough unless someone died or was not in position.
Guess it was so different back then with all the limited stuff to do. Now people are so spread out doing things.
the trick was to wait till 2 clicks ( the boss starts counting down as soon as you enter the area) and once it hits 0 it goes into full enrage..just heavy AOE after heavy AOE..but with 1 tank, 3 heals and the rest dps...you could cheese the boss fight and no deal with many..if any mechs.
Glad you are having fun!
