Raid Hosting (Public/prs/private)

Recommended Posts

Hello all!!!

 

 

 

Over the past few weeks I have had a lot of people ask me to organize raids for them, and also I noticed sometimes public waits for me to get home from work to lead the raids. I know they have the man power to do it on their own while im at work. So... im starting this thread to give some helpful pointers and tips on how to throw your raids, weither they be public or private.

 

 

 

 

Points:

 

1. Verify Trigger/Raid is Ready

 

2. Set a time frame

 

3. Inform your raiders of the particulars of the raid your running.

 

4. Inform your raiders of the loot rules

 

5. Form your groups

 

6. Lead the raid during the battle

 

7. Loot and Distribution

 

8. Thanks

 

 

 

 

1. Verify the Trigger/Raid is Ready

 

This is important, if you cry wolf too many times, or if you from up, in anticipation of a spawn, and it never shows, you hurt your standings with the raiding community.

 

Triggers:

Name / Raid it Starts / Location

Ascendant Voltoi (if you have synthesized crystal lvl 7)             (AV Raid)                                     Dahin

Scavenger Drone ZX1                                                                (Controller Raid)                          BBW

Communications Array SDX                                                       (RD Base Raid)                            AP

Servant of Edward Teach                                                           (Ghost of Blackbeard Raid)          Paramis

Harvey                                                                                         (Tada-o Gate Raid)                     Cooper

4th Group of 66/65/63                                                                 (Scooter & Gen'ril Raid)               DT

 

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With the exception to the DT Raids, all the triggers are pretty much str8 forward.

 

The Triggers in DT are a lot harder to locate.

 

@ The Roost Nav - The trigger is a 4th group of 66/65/63 with the 66 leading the group. If you have 4 of these groups near the Roost, Scooter Raid is ready

@ The Edge of No Place Nav  - The trigger is a 4th group of 66/65/63 with the 66 leading the group. If you have 4 of these groups near the Edge of No Place Nav, Gen'ril McDanner Raid is ready

 

-these can be further isolated to figure which one of the 4 groups is the actual trigger by killing all 4 skuttlebugs, and waiting to see which group dosent get a respawn of the skuttlebug. That will be your trigger group.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

2. Set a Time Frame.

 

Set a time, that is reasonable for all parties involved. If you run your raid @ 12AM at night PST, its 3am on the east coast. So you have to try and find a neutral time, everyone can be available.

 

Also set a time frame. ie. 1hr to do the raid, 1.5hrs to do the raid.  Letting the people know how long they can expect to be tied up, helps prevent people from having to leave early, and leaving you short for complete the raid, or drag it out unnecessarily.

 

3. Informing your raiders of the particular of the raid your running.

 

This is where you discuss ammo choices, and tatics.

 

This is a rough list, if you see something that's not right, you can post on this post, and I can refrence/edit things.

 

Raid / Ammo Types (best to weakest) / Tactics

Ascendant Voltoi / EMP Plasma Impact Explosive / 2 groups sit in one spot and tank and spank

Controller Raid / Chemical Plasma Impact Explosive / 2 groups - 1 takes bosses 1 takes adds.

Rd Base Raid / Chemical Plasma Impact Explosive / 2 groups - 1 takes bosses 1 takes adds.

Ghost of Blackbeard / EMP Chemical Plasma Explosive Impact / 2 groups - 1 takes bosses 1 takes adds.

Tada-o Gate Raid / Plasma Impact Energy Explosive / 1 group - kill bosses last

Scooter Raid / Chemical Plasma Impact / 2 groups - chasing sparkles - Boss Last

Gen'ril McDanner Raid / ALL Types (shields change every 10-20 seconds to a different ammo type reisit. / 2 groups - chasing sparkles - Boss Last

 

4. Informing your raiders of the loot rules.

 

Not everyone is a veteran to raiding, so sometimes you will have to explain how the loot works. As the leader of the Raid, you can set these rules up, as you see fit. However, if your rules are unreasonable or crazy you may have a hard time gathering interest in your raids.

 

This is how I run the Public Rotation raids, and my own personal raids.

 

Rules: 1 win per person, no using alts for extra rolls. we use /random 1 100 1 and the highest number wins. If your unsure of the rules of the looting than ask.

 

5. Forming your groups.

 

Forming the groups is pretty easy and a lot of people have multiple lvl150 toons, so if your short on something, people can switch to fill in the holes.

 

You should have a TE in every group for the Rally Buff.

 

Generally speaking I setup groups with 1 pw 1 te 1 tt and a offhealer (JS/PP/TS) than fill in the 2 spots with whatever is available.

 

The PW is your agro taker, he keeps the aggro  off the healers and softer targets. 

 

The TE is your Hacker and Rally. The rally gives extra reisit to everyone in the group and makes them harder to kill.

 

Not spending much time on this subject.

 

6. Lead the raid during the battle.

 

Make sure you type in Local - you can use TeamSpeak, but remember not everyone is on teamspeak, and not everyone who didn't hear what u said will even ask you to repeat yourself.

 

Don't yell @ people or call them names. That's the fastest way to get people to leave and than your raid fails if you cant get people to replace them.

 

Be clear in your directions.

 

Keep an eye on both groups and make sure you pay attention to the spawns and waves so you can call out things as needed.

 

7. Loot and distribution.

 

List the items in a list with their Quality percentage, so that people can gauge which item they want to roll for.

 

Keep track of who won what, so you can make sure you enforce the 1win per rule.

 

I like to put a -------------------------- (line) when doing rolls to clearly identify its a roll and not a info/description.

 

Example:

 

120% Dragon's Fang lvl 9 ML TE Only - Buildable non-trade  /random 1 100 1 ----------------------------------------------------------

 

Here is the list of loot commands:

command --- example --- Syntax

 

/loot add <playername> --- /loot add raidtank --- must have corpse targeted

/loot release ---- /loot release --- must have corpse targeted

/credit kill <playername> --- /credit kill raidtank --- must be in same system. No need to target looter.

 

8. Thanks

 

 

Remember to thank everyone for coming, thanking the looter, and paying special praise to anyone who performed out of the ordinary.

 

 

 

 

If you think of something I should add/remove/edit let me know, and i'll update.

 

 

thanks,

Cia / Raidtank

Make sure the persons who are looting do not grab a non-tradeable item . Make sure you as raid leader tell the looters what not to loot , and what they can loot .  each raid varies on what drops.
