Jan 12th, The first ever all Froob Medusa raid

Post by Lusto » Mon Jan 12, 2015 11:16 pm

Everyone join me saying thanks for FC for a new raid target for froobs. One with some sweet loot as well.

This is new type of raid, a farming raid, where the raid force hunts medusas. Good for raid forces larger than one team. A bit similar than BD Hags with nasty AoE effects that can mess up your day. So keeping your distance is super important for everyone who can do so, doctors above all.

I started the raid by just spying around to see how tough these new medusas are. Then with few old friends we tried with half team, failing in various ways, and then started asking for help from froobchat. Great response and the mighty froob force was soon assembled. Even Lucier joined, the one remaining member of the first raids I ran almost 10 years ago. Again we had tank confessing his love for Luciers service tower. Rszmit was there as well from the oldies. And then there were all the new people for me, for this was the first froobchat raid I did so it was pleasure to meet all the TL5+ people out there in the fields.

I like to name few champions if I can, but now it's hard. Carrion saved the day with his perfect TMS timing when everything else was failing, bringing us back togather us from a sure wipe situation. But the other champion is the froob force at whole. For group not trained on frequent raids recently the team work was excellent. And in many cases challenging situation was resolved by itself, as a sum of everyone's effort. Great work everyone.

It was fun seeing the excitement when people started to realize that we can do this, and actually kick a**. That is what this bot is all about!

I hope we can have more of this in future.

So what lvl medusas are they? In team missions you can run up to 223ish(?) medusas I think.

The lowest was 248 and highest we fought was 271 or higher. We got one ql 284 Miy nano helmet while I was there. I don't know if they got other phats after I left the raid.

I like these Medusa Grandmatriarchs. They are the kind of raid target that you can take down with maybe just one well-oiled team. You don't have to spawn them, they are already there and seem to keep respawning. I saw at least four locations where they respawn after getting killed. They are not too tough and don't take too long to kill, but have some challenging tricks up their sleeve and deal decent damage. The loot - high QL Miy's nano armor, apparently - holds almost universal appeal.
It's the perfect mob for impromptu raiding where you just gather whoever wants to go along and don't have to set aside hours to spawn the mob and then kill it - you can practically farm these guys.

I think we killed four of them in roughly one hour?

Thanks to Lusto for organizing the raid last night - we didn't kill any more after you left, at least as far as I know. We attempted another one, a level 271, but unfortunately we ganged up on and killed the lone doc, and then we wiped. That's when I bowed out.

As for level range, we also saw a level 285 Grandmatriarch, but decided not to mess with that one.

Yea it was fun, thx for action.
About loot - high Miy's armor drops and I found ql 300 Ring of Essence one day. Not sure what else drops.
For those who don't know yet, Medusa Grandmatriachs (as Carrion said) does some tricks in fight.
-Time to time it casts hostile nano on you that force you to attack other players around (don't even have to be teamed) and that attack includes nano attacks (like snares if you are fixer for example). After couple secs nano runs out and you can stop attacking friends (remember to take off pets from attacking team mates!) and go back for mob.
-It also kicks ppl in the air sometimes so you need to run back a little to him.

Today we did a little raid on these. Not the first raid ever, but my first one at least :)

We killed about 7 I think, the highest one was level 283. The medusas didn't hit especially hard, but the forced pvp, healing and snaring made for interesting fights! The knockback was fun too :P

Some screenies:

Sorry this one has the info window open, I was checking if it had registered a pvp kill. It didn't, so I don't have to reroll my doc :D

A Ql300 Miy Nano body dropped, a +12 Docaholic Ring and a 250ish (I think?) Miy Scary piece. Also a Clanalizer. Congrats to all who won a raffle :)

Yup, cheers, it was really nice, especially the part when the whole team attacked and killed me instead of the boss! :laughing3:

Btw is that a Team window mod, if so, which? It looks useful!

That's from the raid interface. You bring it up by pressing ctrl+shift+R. Then you can click and drag names out of it. Really useful little feature if you need to target people in the raid interface that are not in your team - or just wanna keep tabs on people's health and nano.

I think I saw in some notes that you can reset the counter :D.

These Medusas keep alive my dream of getting QL300 Miy Nano Armor sleeves for my doc.
