View Full Version : The Walking Carpets Let's Kill Something as a Guild.

04-28-2012, 08:38 PM
Alright I know most of our Officers are busy with Ops with Casual Alliance and HMFP and Dailies with our level 50s but we now have a number of toons at mid to high level and I believe it is time we do something as a guild...

The easiest thing would be a low to midlevel World Boss, I'm thinking Taris or Nar Shadda (neither are that difficult), but I'm open to suggestions. I would rather go as my Shadow, but I'm willing to go as a healer.

BongoBob, Lynk and I killed the WB on Quesh the other morning and it was a total blast. Mainly because Lynk let Brem fight between heals. :xp: However if we get a decent group and I play as Brem I promise just to heal and stun....

So who would like to tackle a WB? Pretty sure we can bribe Lynk into being our meat shield, so it would be relatively safe (as long as you don't stand to close to him) and it could net you some decent gear as you level up.

I'm up for killing any world boss you guys want to target. Just name a time and a place on a weekend date (since I'm mostly unavailable on weekdays) and I can tank with my Vanguard for you guys. Alternatively, it may be possible to get Mav to use his Jedi Shadow, Kage (lol get it?) to Tank for you if you can't find me around.

As for a list of possible targets... here you go:

Note that on the Imperial side I'm rolling a Sith Marauder so I can't tank on that side. For now, I'm only available to tank on the Republic side only.

04-29-2012, 12:26 PM
If you’re interested, list a time and which boss you want to kill.

Some of the lower level to midlevel bosses we could take even if there are only three of us. I just think it would be more fun with a larger group. Even if you think you’re not that great…Lynk will be taking most of the damage and he is that good and I will be there to heal you if you do get a boo boo. I can even bring one person per fight back from the dead. :xp:

04-29-2012, 12:33 PM
I'm up for helping, we should definitely try and do the highest level one we can possibly beat.

04-29-2012, 12:37 PM
I'm up for helping, we should definitely try and do the highest level one we can possibly beat.

I think we should do that too. We can kill more than one, so that we include as many in the guild that want to do this.

04-29-2012, 02:32 PM
I'm up for it. I'm a level 42, almost 43 and am now on Hoth, so anything before that should be fine (or on Hoth itself, as well). Weekends would be best for me, too. Not going to give a specific time, my weekend schedule's pretty flexible at this moment, so whatever you choose, there's a good chance I can be there.

04-29-2012, 04:08 PM
I went with Lynk and a group to kill Snowblind on Hoth. It does a weird snow effect in the fight that lives up to the name. Not really sure how that would work out for most of the guild, but I'm game to do it again. :)

We should also make sure folks get the speeder achievement mission for killing world bosses. If you defeat some of the higher level bosses 3 times over then you get the Coral (piiiiiink) coloured Aratech speeder.

04-29-2012, 07:15 PM
I am game, if a level 32 almost 33 can join..happy to help out, those bosses look scary. Post a time or grab me when i am in...

as for the piiiink speeder i am sure my Companion Kira would love it, and I dont mind if she is happy my life is much easier :) she had developed a habit of taunting all the baddies and i have my hand full as it is.

Countdown Clock (http://countingdownto.com/countdown/65077)

We are going to kill our first boss 05/05/2012 at 9:00 am U.S. Central Time.

We will start with the one on Coruscant and work our way up from there. So this is a WB killing spree, not just some random isolated violence.

I will go check if the world boss is alive, if it is there that will be the one we start with. Some of the later ones may require lower leveled characters to be escorted to them, but the upper level toons will escort you to the site.

I will say, if you don’t have a speeder Coruscant, Nar Shadda and Taris may be the only planets you have access to (and only if you have already been to those places), but please come for Coruscant at least. There will be punch and cookies served.

The objective is to have fun. There will be no judgment here (except if the main healer and tank don’t do their jobs (not worried about the tank)). Come for one WB or come for as many as we have time to do, but have fun. I really want to see the toons of the people I’ve been talking to in guild chat and watched as they traveling from planet to planet leveling through the story. Let’s show the galaxy that the TWC are a force to be reckoned with and have a little fun in the process.

Everyone’s welcomed, and you never know you may get some tips that you can use as you level up.

Oh, for those that don't know - I'm going to post this now. We will not have many rules, but the one rule is no one attacks until Lynk gives the order. It will make his and my job easier (our job is to keep the lower level toons alive).

Plus, group photo! :D

04-30-2012, 12:40 PM
Yeah I'll definitely be taking lots of pics for these world bosses... but the rest of you should be focusing on DPS :carms: and heals for mim.

I'll start a TWC photo album somewhere, it'll be fun.

04-30-2012, 05:45 PM
and heals for mim.I'm a fighter not a healer...Oh wait.... No DPS for me...:bored:

04-30-2012, 09:27 PM
OK will be there, where do we meet on Coruscant, and yes i do have a Speeder :) thanks for that one rule to help us stay alive...us lowly lower ranks..but we will indeed try our best :)

We'll give instructions on the day, just head to Coruscant and wait outside of the space port, we'll then group and you'll be able to see the blips of other group members on the map as purple icons representing people. We'll also give instructions in the chat of how to get to places.

05-01-2012, 02:32 AM
OK, ys i have grouped before and know about the purple indicatiors and I have done all of the missions on Coruscant except for a few of the Heroic ones so just will need to know where to find the boss will stand by for instructions..i am guessing the boss is in the Works but that is just a guess :)

05-01-2012, 11:29 AM
CrisG the basic instructions are:

Lynk is the Tank, we don't attack until he has aggro. So wait to attack until Lynk says so, or you see one of the higher character (hopefully level 50 toons attack, if I were you and Jeff is there, I would watch him. Jeff and Lynk have done many Hard Mode Ops and Flashpoints together, so Jeff will know when to attack). Do not watch Brem (me) she will not be attacking at all.

Next stay away from Lynk or you will get hit with splash damage and die. Watch what Lynk orders before the fight begins and do that. Usually that will be getting behind the WB and then hitting it as hard and fast as you can. Using all your cool downs to used your most powerful attacks as often as possible.

If something happens in the battle and you get knocked back, use whatever means possible to get back on the WB as fast as possible. Two reason,

1. Your job is to damage the boss

2. You need to be in my range so that I can heal you. I will not leave the range of our Tank or level 50 DPS to heal anyone. So you will have to get within my range. Early bosses this will not be that big a deal, but it is good practice if we keep good habits for the later WBs. Which means the Tank will be my number #1 priority, followed by those that cause the most damage.

Some of these WBs have one hit kills. So if lower levels dies (depending on which planet we are on) stay put. I have no cool down on my out of combat resurrect and I have 1 in combat resurrect per battle. I also have the power to get out of combat during the battle, but I will only do so if no one is in danger of death. Hope there are other scoundrels or shadows around that can also do this.

No use you going back to the med center and running back if you require a higher level to escort you to the battle. Again, not a big deal for most of us until we get a planet where the local mobs are a higher level than your toon.

If you see the WB throw an AOE on the ground around you, run out of it. If you have a target on you run away from other guild members. You are going to be hit, please try your best not to let splash damage also hit your guildmates, but as soon as you are hit, run back to the battle. Remember your #1 job is to damage the boss as much and as fast as possible.

My advice is to be on your ship until we know which boss is living. Coruscant is our first target, but if he is already dead, we will have to go to Taris first and so on. We are placing other members of the TWC and IM at boss locations to verify that the boss is alive or not. So don’t be surprised if Lynk and Brem sign out every once in awhile between battles. We are not quitting, we are signing into one of our alts checking on the next world boss.

05-01-2012, 12:25 PM
thanks Mim, and thanks for the help last night with that ship board battle, much appreciate the chance to proceed with my main quest.....

I also appreciate the tips and suggestions, much of that makes sense and fits with what I am already doing, Last night you said at first you were going to hold back and let me do the attacking and then you said that i had attacked too soon....which made me a bit confused..but i will follow these guidelines as they all makes sense. I think one thing i have been doing wrong is getting too close to the enemy when my companion is attacking and thus i get hit by what you call splash effect, i just started thinking about this yesterday as there are three Sith Apprentices I have not been able to kill yet in Nar Shaddaa in the mission called Inspection, and I have been trying to figure out why..and i think it is the splash effect, i will try some other methods...part of the problem is that they are located close to walls or crates and it is hard to get around behind them...i may try to draw them out first....will see. but thanks and i am looking forward to the Guild battle on the weekend. I will, as usual, do my best :)

05-01-2012, 06:47 PM
Ooh! I'm definitely up for this! Especially ever since that nasty Trapjaw on Tatooine tricked me with his 'suspicious' dummy bait the first time I stumbled upon it. Think I lasted like 2 seconds. Maybe three. Definitely long enough for me to shout out some choice words and get a strange look from the spouse on the other side of the room. :) When we kill him, I'm dancing on his scaly corpse!

So, I'll be there. Think 9 CT is 3pm BST (British Summer Time) but just in case my math is bad, I'll be on a bit earlier. :)

05-02-2012, 11:34 AM

05-02-2012, 05:26 PM
Thanks, Mim. I feel better now knowing that I wasn't the only one who got suckered. :) I'm much wiser now. If something says it's 'suspicious' or 'appears dangerous' or it's 'unusual'... I make sure I have room to run after I touch it. :p

Not me. I'm just too curious. "I've got to know"

05-03-2012, 10:51 AM
Just so we're clear (for any Tanks joining, like me :)): since Lynk's gonna tank, are we to focus on dps (whatever we're worth for that)?

Lynk Former
05-03-2012, 11:40 AM
Well since I'll be there, I'll end up generating the most threat since my current skill tree requires me to remain in my tanking stance to get any real damage out... but generally I'll be DPSing as well, it's just that there's no point other people tanking if I'm there cause I'll keep on pulling the threat off of whoever...

Of course, only reason that'd happen is cause my toon is a hell of a lot more geared than the other tanks in the guild... and I'm lv50 XD

05-03-2012, 02:59 PM
Yeah, everyone will be DPS except Lynk. As to other healers, it depends how many guild members and how many healers show up, but on the early ones at least they should be allowed to DPS or Heal, their choice, but while DPSing keep one eye on everyone's health (just in case). Except for me, I am just going to heal with the understanding the next time we do something like this I get to DPS (hopefully with my Shadow).

Not going to promise not to at least get one dirty kick in. :dev14:

05-03-2012, 10:12 PM
I know I am late to the party, but I'd like to try something like this. My Jedi Knight is only in the low 20's though. Does that put me out this go around? I just finished Taris and was about to hit Nar Shaddaa.

If nothing else, I'd like to do some of the Taris group missions with a couple people...

05-04-2012, 12:32 AM
Prime you can definitely make the first two, provided they are not already dead and I will personally walk you in to the one on Nar Shaddaa if you want to give it a try. It is in the bonus area, so the regular mobs in that area are around 30, but if you stay a little behind me I can get you in with no problem.

After that it would be difficult without a speeder.

Lynk Former
05-04-2012, 06:19 AM
Right now Prime's toon is lv23... which means he'll only be able to do the first two world bosses on Coruscant and Taris. He'd never be able to do the ones on Tatooine which is lv30 and on Nar Shaddaa which is lv32 (remember, we're doing the Tatooine one before the Nar Shaddaa one).

The reason for this is because, as you said, it takes a hell of a lot of effort to get people to these points in the game if they haven't already been there... and the second point is that once they get there, the person will be too low a level to really do anything.

All of their attacks will miss and a single aoe will most likely take them out.

So yeah, when it comes down to it, there's going to have to be limits placed, not only for those practical concerns but also because I'd rather not spoil worlds for some folks who haven't made it to those worlds through the natural progression of their toons quest line...

...unless they REALLY want to go I guess. If you really want to try and take your toon as far as possible we can try, but it'll be extremely difficult with no speeder points and being completely out-levelled by everything around you to the point where one or two shots and you're down no matter what you do.

05-04-2012, 08:20 AM

If you really want to try and take your toon as far as possible we can try, but it'll be extremely difficult with no speeder points and being completely out-levelled by everything around you to the point where one or two shots and you're down no matter what you do.

Thus the I said if he really wanted to try it. :) I just figured he could be more of a spectator there because not only is it a level 30 area, but it is also a Heroic area. If he really wants to go I will walk him in. I believe all of the pads are open on Nar Shadda and it is an area that most people never see unless the go kill the World Boss or remember to go back to Nar Shadda after completing the main planet quest once they reach 30 to do the bonus quest. Brem only saw it when you, mav, Jeff and Kus took her to kill the WB, Manta went there long after 30 for a companion quest, my agent has never been there, so Leyn’a, my 4th forth toon to reach that level, is the only one that went back to do the bonus mission and that was only because we went back to do mine and your class/companion quests and I saw the quest with Manta.

However Prime, Lynk is right, you fight you die, but I would still be happy to get you (and anyone else) there if you wanted to go and watch. Everything but the world boss is a one or two hits for me in that area and I do have a way to stealth you for 15 seconds while I walk you past stuff and if something happen and you do die, I have no cooldowns on my out of combat resurrect. So getting you in would not be a problem, but you would be there as a spectator.

Alright here is the battle plan. (subject to change)

1. Couscant –SD-0 --Level 18 – Area :Old Galactic Market (around 2553, 999). If anyone hasn’t seen this one, they are most likely still on the starter world.

2. Taris – Subject Alpha – Level 18 – Area: Brell Sidiment (around -430, 790)

3. Tatooine – Trapjaw – Level 30 – Area: The Dune Sea (around -1772, 410) If you get there before us and you see something suspicions to click on…don’t. :xp:

4. Nar Shaddaa – Battledrooid R4-GL Level 32 –Area: High Security Lockdown (2040, -1570)

5. Alderaan – Ulgo Siegebreaker—Level 35 – Area: No clue **will find out tonight** (300,-200)

6. Quesh – Rogue Cartel Warbot – Level 38 – Same area as the Republic Port (300,200)

7. Hoth – Snowblind – Level 44 (400, 1100)

8. Hoth – Gargath – Level 49 Area: Gargaths Watch (-2000, 500)

9. Belsavis _ The Primal Destroyer –Level 50 (this may be a tad out of our reach).

Not really sure how many we will get to, but if you have a speeder, been to that planet , are level appropriate and have the time, we can at get past number 6 with little difficulty. The main problem will be time and if the bosses have already been killed. 7, 8, and definitely 9 will be pushing it with the number of people we have at the appropriate level now.

I think we need to work on our photo opportunity skills XD

05-05-2012, 01:35 PM
Wish I could have joined :p

05-05-2012, 01:53 PM
We will definitely do this again and pick a time that will be better for those that couldnít make it today. Picked this time because it was good for Mitiades, Lynk and I since we were the first three involved. May be make it next time in two phases; phase one for lower levels and the higher levels that want to go and phase 2: for those just after the speeder achievement.

Also thinking about doing a datacron run, where we get everyone all the datacrons, they missed or couldnít find up to their level planet. It may make it easier to go with Lynk (Lynk the person and not the toon) who has already gotten them all. I could also take brem to provide heals for the mobs running around. Let me know if this interests anyone. Also once we get enough to 50 we have to do the level 50 +10 datacron as guild. Lynk, Mav, Jeff and I have it, but we can take one of our alts.

I would like to thank everyone that showed up, it was exactly what I wanted and for those that didnít I hope you can come next time. So start leveling so you can join for them all.

Mav taught me too well; here are my pics, but I don't have names on them.




05-05-2012, 09:15 PM
Looks fun! I know I am far behind, but I guess that is incentive to catch up. :) I don't want to be a burden.

Is there any interested on just doing the first two some time soon?

05-05-2012, 10:05 PM
Prime anytime you want to do them, just yell. Mav says any level 50 could tank those two, so Brem would go. Hopefully Lynk is around because I would feel better about your toon's safety with a real Tank or perhaps we could talk Miltiades or Mav into Tanking for us.

But yeah, we will do it again soon if enough people are interested. Also not going to speak for everyone, but I'm pretty sure Lynk or I would go 90% of the time if you catch us on and free, so just yell (pretty sure the others would too, but don't want to volunterer anyone, but Lynk).

Personally I would like to see us do something as a guild at least once a month, but that could just be me.

05-06-2012, 03:59 AM
Yeah generally speaking if I'm online and not in an Ops or a FP, I'm game to do anything.

05-06-2012, 07:18 AM
Thanks for organising this, Mim. I had a blast!

And I think the pictures are fine. My only complaint is that my toon obviously needs to go on a diet and quit listening to Corso Riggs when she asks, "Do I look fat in this?" He's obviously lying when he tells her 'no'. :)

05-06-2012, 12:46 PM
Thanks for organising this, Mim. I had a blast!

Most of the thanks should go to Lynk. I came up with the idea, but was waiting for input before setting a date/time, Lynk was the one that had me just pick a time. I also came up with the idea of putting alts at the location so we didn't waste a trip, but it was Lynk that organized who to put where and got Mitiades to put a toon at a Hoth WB in case we got there. Thank you Mitiades.
Also thanks to Lynk, Jeff and Mav for coming and more important helping me get Brem to 50 and beyond. Without Lynk and Mav especially, she either would not be a healer or level 50 still stuck in a class quest on Tatooine. :xp:

I’m so disorganized I forgot the punch and cookies. :D Maybe next time...

05-07-2012, 10:50 AM
Man Why do I always look the otherway when the photos are taken :raise:

Thanks for the fun guys, we need to do more as a group :) Always count me in

05-07-2012, 12:23 PM
Oh hey, Hawkeye, glad you made it here. And I agree, more of this! :D

05-07-2012, 12:44 PM
Well if anyone has any ideas on something we can do as a group besides WBs, post them and I'm more than willing to go and help in any way possible. Also everyone get to 50 and we have more options on what we can do as a group. :)

05-07-2012, 02:47 PM
Oh hey, Hawkeye, glad you made it here. And I agree, more of this! :D

Well I was going to ask Lynk to post the photos on Twilight, but figured it be quicker to visit here. I just wish the reg was quicker then 20 minutes.:headbump

Overall I think we could do WB twice a month at the same time we had set up for the last one, such as once a forthnight, Once as Carpets and then we do the next one as Meatbags to give it rotation.

There are Heroic areas... Which we could set up days on certain days of the week. But kinda of more relaxed if three out of five online turn up kinda of set up. It would be nice to have some team mates to work with, Maybe open it up if there are slots to other helps gets new members?

05-07-2012, 03:13 PM
Problem on the Meatbag side is the lack of Tanks and Healers, everyone is pretty much DPS. I'm guessing I'm going to have to respec my Agent to a healer, but not doing that until I finish the story section. Right now my agent has been setting on Hoth forever....I hate Hoth. Have a story ops Thursday, but after that I will get back to work on her. I don't think we want to tackle even the mid-leveled boss without either a healer or a tank. The only Tank listed in the guild other than DP is my Sith Inquisitor Assassin and even she is DPS right now. Also don't think I can heal and tank at the same time.:xp:

Heal with more gusto, yah! *cracks whip*

@Mav try going through 99.999% of the game solo as a healer with a tank companion...

One of my favorite things about being a healer is the praise....:xp: In Ops the only time I remember someone publicly praising me was during the puzzle phase (usual people use whisper to say thanks for some unknown reason). Every time I healed someone during the puzzle I would draw aggro from everyone and end up getting stun. Well I forgot my place and we wiped. Next time they told me to just worry about the puzzle and maybe throw out heal here and there if necessary. Well I finished the puzzle and hit Angelic with a huge heal with about 1% or 2% health. Seijin yelled great save, but it really wasn’t. It was just luck that I finished the puzzle fast enough, because I wasn’t going to screw it up for a second time. So about the only time I get praise is when I make a mistake. Healers also get yelled at when they do everything right. Someone stands in lava or AOE and then blames the healer for dying. Sorry if you are not the Tank, move because when a huge AOE is happening I’m moving and then I’m going to be throwing the big stuff at the tank, you can move just like me….

Don’t even get me started about the guy running through and standing in the lava. Yes, your armor is great on your main toon, maybe the best in the game, but that does not protect your under equipped alt from lava. Get your butt on the rocks with everyone else because I’m throwing out a AOE heal for the group and then hitting the tank with a big one before the boss starts pounding on him/her again. Then if you are still alive, I will hit you with a heal, if not then tough, I’m not using in combat revive on you just so you can do the same thing when we move to the next rock.

Sorry for the vent, but DPS could make things so much easier on healers just by not being stupid and taking unnecessary damage. Yes, your companion healer was better than me, but it may have something to do with them only healing you and not 7 more people at the same time. Oh, and we know, I may not be able to describe what the boss looks like, but I can tell you who ran through the lava or stood there in AOE, when someone takes a lot of damage fast we know. I stop what I’m doing and hit them with a heal as I quickly get that person in my sights while hitting the next heal trying to see if I can stun whatever is damaging the person. So we know…

Well i given Kyon as a healer now....

08-06-2012, 10:13 AM
Can we kill something as a guild again? Not a major op, and it doesn't have to be a WB run. Just something that we can do as Walking Carpets for an hour or so that doesn't require everyone be at the same level.

It's just that yesterday I had to pay a visit to Ord Mantell and... I had an overwhelming urge (probably from the Darkside) to go to that island and just kill all the Savrips all at once, just for the heck of it. :imp:

I still want to kill that super-wampa Frostclaw in that H4 mission on Hoth. Killed me and three others in the group I was with in like 30 seconds--twice! Got another group a day later and...same thing happened. -.- His furry days are numbered. In fact, I might try to get him again tonight when I get home from work...

Or if we can't agree on what to kill, maybe we can try a pantless WB run?

08-08-2012, 12:22 PM
If you want to kill Frostclaw, then just yell this weekend and I will get Leyn'a (fast) or Brem (slow, but safe) and we will kill him.

Now if you want to kill Snowblind or Gargath we would need a few more for that. Depending on the time, could most likely get few from CA or pug and pull either off rather easily. Pretty much will do anything below Nightmare Pilgrim (Voss WB) with a few decently equipped 50s and a decent tank. Voss WB takes a full well equipped Ops team.
