Destiny 2: Raid Lair [May Contain Spoilers]
« on: December 09, 2017, 09:12:59 AM »
A thread for discussion about the new raid - Raid Lair.
May contain spoiler!

World first was by bunch of randoms from Reddit.

Haven't read too much into it yet, but so far feedback has been positive.
Short but fun. and very different to Leviathan.

Can't wait for tonight to try it out with WPR members.

Quite enjoyed what we got through last night. Good to see a few puzzling pieces again.

Hopefully it isn't like the other one returning you to the same repeat location after each encounter. Definitely feels like a normal raid even if it is reportedly short.

Keen to see the rest.

It is very short though.

Ditto to everything you said.

Its always enjoyable playing blind. I reckon we have figured out the section we are on, just need to work on timing/being quicker. Find any good strategies?

On the jumping platform at Argo, we need to take down 2 of the glowing thing during each phase.

WTF is a glowing thing? Left arm, right arm, tail feathers or funny head?

Any one of those, as long as we destroy 2 of them in each phase. So we might want to think about the easiest way to group them in each phase.

Completed it with an LFG group last night and they used a very simple method to maximise the dps (phase 2). Would like to share it here with you.

1). The group are split into two groups of 3. First group are defenders, 2nd are runners.

2). Defenders pick up the first lot of craniums, wait for the damage platform to come up, and all three head to dps platform and place all chargers there. And stay here to clear adds

3) defenders call out the elements shown

4). Runners pick up 2nd lot of craniums and place them in the appropriate element platform to cook. (In the situation where you have a spare, cook it anyway)

5). When all 6 are cooked, runners bring the their three to the dps platform

6). Runners communicate and take down the shields

7). When shield is down, defenders pick up the remaining cooked craniums on the platform and continue dps (runners will also dps with your golden gun or weapons as usual).

The purpose here is to ensure we will use up all 6 cooked craniums for dps (they do by far the most damage).
Warlock drop an empower rift and titan barricade to assist)

As usual watch out for net and kamakazi harpies are priority

The next will be platform phase (his wipe mechanic). Itís easier to do one side of the body first (eg left brain and left arm), the do the right side or the back (back neck).

Remember when both glowing bits are down, you can you shoot his head/nose for additional dps.

Rinse and repeat.

Note: once you pick up the cranium, you can drop it to help clear adds if necessary. You can pick it up on the spot again later.

Damage (kenitic and  energy weapon) comparison on Argo dirk phase 2.

Surprisingly hard light > sweet business > cold heart

Rocket still king though.

Never been a fan of cold heart outside of crucible.

Some strategy and class setup advise for Argo dps.

Looks like the preferred subclass is solar for all characters. Would be interesting to test this out next time and see how much more of Argos health bar we can damage per round- with one orb generator and five solar supers.

Completed my fastest raid so far with a LFG group last night, 36minutes :)

The group consists of 2 of each class with no particular orb generation role (all experienced players)

The Argo dps was insane, we took 40% of his heath off in first dps phase.! Have never seen that much dps in a single phase.  Most just use super and rockets with help of empower rift and rally barricade. No one died and no one got caught in net which also helps to maximise dps time.

Will probably give the all solar classes a run then to see how it goes. Clearing the minotaurs promptly helps the staying alive part I assume.
