Our ongoing mission to flag a large number of players to raid as equally as possible is nearing completion, so unlike other guilds that will plow headfirst into newly opened content as soon as its available, we took some of our raiding timeslot to revisit T1 as a priority over learning T2 raids.

The latest win is the strangely named “Prince Ralaifin”, a simple raid on the surface with a bunch of “guess what this emote means – oh your all dead” effects, its not much to really look at once you clear the utterly unnecessary stupid base pop of trash.

Four Elementals, complete with awful hitboxes and animations that fool you into knowing where they actually are, and a bunch of spiders….

Shoutout time to Astralwiz, who wanted to be in the news, and our favourite of the 4 elementals, Ralaifin Ecclescake, because it makes no sense.

Next time on AOU : The Final Frontier

We did a bit of this event in Beta, so we have perhaps a hours headstart on how not to beat it.

After gaining Tier 2 access a short while ago and taking the time to flag enough for viable attempts, our first win came quickly with Esianti: Palace of the Winds: Contract of War.

While we did look at this one briefly during Beta, it was the utter bare bones setup – no emote texts, one mob a time, and untuned effects, we gained absolutely no advantage from testing to going live.

Anyway, about this raid, balance down 3 bosses, where have I seen that before?, at least the zone layout is pleasant.

For the rollcall we have the lovely Ms Sunshine Sensible Warmth

Then we have Mr “I ain’t gettin’ on no plane, fool” Radiant Fog Evening

And finally, the “I don’t even know what i’m looking at” bird dragon snake thing – Feather Silver Sheen

An enjoyable raid to learn and look forward to farming while we work the next Tier 2 events.

And a final word from our sponsor Clyde, for those who thought AOU would not work, we took the right turn, it didn’t do us so mad.

The Rise of Smoke

When we did beta, we looked at a few raids, including this one, and while we didn’t flog our logs over them, we devoted a healthy couple of hours to understand the absolute basics.

The basics taught me that I would hate this raid, and it was grossly over difficult and we would need to be in 6 places at once.

So when we beat the other two T1 raids, leaving this one to last, I had some apprehension about dying 50 times a night learning the event.

What a surprise it is, when its not stupidly impossible, but actually only just a little bit hard, (I would even say this is probably easier than Stratos) and quite winnable when people follow emotes.

So, we have Huey, Dewey, and Louie in their own rooms, with Hong Kong Phooey all alone up his own area.

In the Red corner, weighing in at 2,130 lbs  – Huey “Warm Heart Flickers” Mephit.

In the Blue corner, a slim trim 1,993 lbs – Dewey “Dark Waters Sing” Mephit.

And in the Green Corner, at a hefty 2,662 lbs – Louie “Shadows of Stone” Mephit.

Finally our reigning champion, Supreme Heavyweight at 8,391 lbs King of the Ring, the undefeated until now Phooey “Disappointed Heart’s Torrent” Golem.

Not much else to add, other than once we understood what not to do, the event was beaten very quickly.

Well, as quickly as you can beat a golem with 20 bazillion hps,

So then, a special shoutout to Senate member Sheev for all his love and motivating messages towards Absor, As I don’t have a current ingame screenshot of sheev, but have this – its a older pic sir, but it checks out.
