    So I just did sorrows embrace

    And wow that was a good tough instance. So far each instance has done a good job ramping in challenge and difficulty and so far this one has not disappointed. The most surprising thing for me was after and epicly long struggle with a boss where we had to constantly change utility skills for each of his phases, rezzing allies from downed state innumerable times, and when we finally beat it all of us exclaimed with joy. And immediately following we were ambushed by more mobs. THAT WASN'T THE LAST BOSS?! Our entire group echoed this sentiment at once.

    And the last boss himself, while not as difficult proved just as fun and a really cool fight. For anyone that hasn't done it yet I highly recommend this instance. It's pretty tough but just get some hearty people to take it on. I did this in a pug group btw so it is possible to do with pugs.

    So you deem it worthy of taking over as the successor to Sorrow's Furnace? That was my favorite place in all of GW1.

    Sorry to disappoint but I never played GW1 >.<
    Someone else may be better equipped to answer that.

    im just guessing your referring to the asura + 3 golem fight. Yea it took my group like 3 hrs for that dungeon. And took us like 1 and a half hours to figure out that 1 golem that sprays fire everywhere. Lucky im a theif with a shortbow and my backshot skill can evade that attack so i dont get 1 shot.

    Yeah that boss with the 3 golems sucked. Just did it last night. We wiped once on the second golem then that was it. Think we wiped more on trash (those trash compactors killed half our party lol). Tons of rezzing though and once you figure out the strat for the last boss man was he easy. Should have switched the orders personally but I suppose the forge master was pretty epic.

    The real problem is finding people who can do it. And that the dungeon takes a very long time to go through, like all the others. Doing them once is fun. Doing them several times over is really painful.

    Only hard part was the fire golum imo.

    Did the Arah final dungeon last night, wasn't that hard at all the final fight against zhaitan was just so fucking shit, not epic at all not done Flame Citidel or the waves one yet though.

    Yea that fire golem is such a bitch, it was pretty funny cause me and the other warrior in the group were using the shake it off utility skill and so every 15 seconds or so you hear a person screaming SHAKE IT OFF!

    It worked on the last golem (the one that grips you) and it may well work on the others but that raised platform that has the fence, if you stand at the right angle you could shoot over it and hit the boss but his grip would just pull you into it and you'd stop so you never got sucked into the poison. So that one was pretty easy for us, one person tanked and tried to stay alive while the other people hid then we rotated and I cleansed conditions as engi with the elixer gun. Fire boss we just ran around like crazy with a warrior healing with banners I think, me healing and dispelling with the elixer gun a ton of rezzing.

    The first guy though I don't get how he works, someone would go down and 3 people would go to rez while one guy kept shooting which would cause him to shoot the lightning and own the 3 guys rezzing. It seemed like if you didn't attack he didn't shoot that beam at you and you wanted to be spread out cause it chained?

    The first one was easy for us we all went ranged and spread way far out. Those little lightning things won't chain if you are far enough away. Me and the other warrior had the regen glyph on so the damage was completely negligible for us. That boss really gave us a false sense of calm though cause the moment the fire one appeared we got owned.

    For that poison one I switched my offhand with a war horn the #4 gives swiftness and breaks all roots and slows so each time he pulled I did a quick swap and buffed the group so we were able to run out without taking any damage.

    When you play dungeons you notice just how bad people are at dodging.

    And that's why dungeons are the raids of GW2.

    I can't wait to start running the dungeons. Really curious about them. Just need to find a group but maybe I should simply jump in a pug.

  17. #17
    So do groups work now? I have tried on 10 different occasions to get into a dungeon group and could never even start the dungeon.
