Age of Triumph Raids: Tuesday Night, (Closed)

Starting with Age of Triumph availability, I want to Raid starting on 'reset' night, from 9-11 Eastern. Subsequent Raid attempts can then ensue over the week.

To that end, I need 5 people for my/our Fireteam who will commit to show up on Tues. nights. Team members should also be willing to put in time getting their character/s prepared for each attempt.

Once the Fireteam is confirmed, you are either in it or you're an Alt. Your seat in the Fireteam is always confirmed unless you have other stated commitments. A Fireteam member should chose Alt if they become consistently unavailable.

Alts sign ups are more than welcome and will be accepted on a first come first serve basis.

Working Mics and without background noises are mandatory.

Current Fireteam:

DEEP NNN, Old n Achy, Zikan, Krak64, Inka Cola and LetsGoMTeers

​UPDATE April 7, 2017: As initiator of this event, I am closing it.

DEEP, are you planning to run the updated, 390 LL versions of the raids? I expect those will be the only versions that will drop the appropriate/infusable gear. This hasn't been verified yet, but I expect it will be cleared up in the next few weeks.

Yes, that's my intent. If the challenges are reasonable and the loot is worth it, we should find out pretty quick.

I'd like to participate. My big goal for the Age of Triumph is to make it across the VoG jumping puzzle using the stepping stones to go most of the way instead of jumping to the ledge as soon as I possibly can. Get ready for lots of falling!

Looks like we have 6. Now we just have to see exactly when the first Raid (Crota's End) starts.

The first challenge enabled raid will be on March 28th and it will be Crota. It'll just have to be selected from the daily/weekly selection bar (next to the nightfall).

All the other raids will be available to play at 390 LL (with no challenge) if selected via the directory in their respective planets/dreadnaught.

Yup, I'm just thinking about how issues like downloads and servers might negatively affect things on release day.

We are ready to roll. The "Fireteam" is DEEP NNN, Old n Achy, Zikan, Krak64, Inka Cola and LetsGoMTeers​  with doorgunnerjgs and Freyn Ap Thyr as Alt.

The "Fireteam" members do not have to confirm attendance each week but should lets us know asap if they can't make it.

Anyone can be an Alt and it's first come first serve.

We tried it a few times during the learning phase. Time was running short so we opted to just finish the section for a check point. I can see that it's doable.

I believe some of you were predicting that 390 Crota would be soloed. Or maybe you were joking.

And we were all wondering how one could solo the "5 swords" bit at the second bridge.

If you guys need an Alt, put me on the list.  I'm available tonight, and Wednesday night.  My GT is wulleymammoth, and I'd prefer to use my Titan; No Time to Explain Quest...need eye of Atheon, from VOG.  But, I'm a team player, and can use any class, and subclass, that you guys need in the fireteam.

We made it to the Oracles stage in the Templar Well. Wasn't easy. Then Bungie's great servers dealt us a deathly blow. This raid will take me some time to learn better execution.

The Oracles definitely spawn much faster.  Learning the sequence and getting used to the speed is paramount.  Hopefully the sequences for each wave will become instinctive and call outs won't be necessary unless someone needs help.  Just saw a video where one suggested weapon is the Outbreak Prime because it has an Oracle disrupter.  Didn't know that.  Shotguns also good to take out Oracles.

Here is the link to the Oracle sequence -- https://www.reddit.com/r/DestinyTheGame/comments/62wxmt/updated_oracle_s...

Probably not a bad idea for everyone to bookmark it and have it available for the next few iterations.

It was definitely going better towards the end. Seemed to me that each oracle took about a full clip to take out with my weapons. Outbreak Prime sounds worth a try.

Good to know about the Outbreak Prime. I'll try it next time. Already using a Matador 64. It takes 3 shots to kill an Oracle if no one else is shooting at it.

I know I won't remember the sequence so the best thing for me is to get better and calm down. Also felt alone by R2/R3. I'm used to someone else being in that area. Not sure what is is going on.

You should have had someone there with you.  Set up was supposed to be 2 left, 2 right, and 2 middle/sniper duty.  Next time I suppose we will have to make sure assignments are understood by all with no "roaming."  Video I saw showed 3 shotgun rounds to take out an Oracle as well.  I did notice that a (void) grenade weakened an Oracle enough that 2 or 3 quick scout rifle shots took it out.  Makes having a 2 grenade perk and quick cool down a plus.

I am planning on going back in this morning to check out the effectiveness of the Outbreak Prime and will report back.
