when the low end (cron/spider) can get 1 manned and the top end (fervo dungeon+) can be 2 manned, you know raid system needs a revamp.

They should be RAID bosses, aka cannot die without at least 15+ players attacking them.

Just trying to share how some things are done, maybe it'll help ej (and yes 2 mans are by super decked out characters, this cant be done by everyone).

We went back and finished Velanthra later that same day. First ever kill on the boss, years after her release. It was not easy, it was not cheap, and I'm not sure there will be another kill on the legendary villain of xenimus for a while. Two obliv staves dropped. An obliv cape dropped from a monster on the way. But the kill itself was rather anti climactic. There was no legendary item given, no quest to obtain something great, no title, reward of substance, or anything resembling a reward you would expect for what would equate to an absurd amount combined years invested to get to the pinnacle of killing the over arching villain in xenimus. You could say, I'm disappointed.

After the amount of time it took to figure how to even enter her dungeon, the combined efforts to figure out how to kill her, and how to navigate the tricks inside of her dungeon it was everything you'd come to expect from xenimus. Secrets, tricks, absurdly over powered mechanics, danger, risk, and very little reward.

I'm proud to have been in the groups that first explored, killed, and worked out this dungeon. The friends I made years and years ago on my link, slowly over time gaining steam from the low points of gearless to being among the elite in the game. Even so, we had to include enemies in this kill it was so difficult. I do wish some of the original link we grew were still around more often that they could have been included in this kill. It was a wild ride from being excluded, pked, and dismissed in the beginning. Starting our raids on top/bot dd in demonic/omni gear. Growing the link slowly, helping others gear up, and taking over the scene.

To those that were not invited, and were upset they were not invited. I apologize that you were upset, but even with all of the precautions taken things did not turn out as we would have liked. The oblivion cape that dropped was unexpected, and we are still struggling to come to terms on how that item will be handled. The high risk of dropping gear in this place is to high to include many people. It was nothing personal. It is a little odd some people feel entitled.

Quick overview of the boss:
Velanthra does absurd damage, we all were using omni potions, vish potions, vis maximus potions, white elixirs, gps, blue elixirs, and a coordinated effort of some of the most geared characters in the game over hours.
She can freeze, away, fragor, beam, stupify, charged AOE freezes that last a very long time, AOE chaos effect, is surrounded by fragor bone piles, and clouds that sap health/Magic Power. As well as the minions surrounding her. It takes so long to kill her you have to stop after her almus to reclear the room which is, VERY difficult.


A short version of her death can be seen here : https://youtu.be/8m5BlnYkpUM

xenforum1 isnt joking, and just took several people with history to squash it and say lets destroy this last boss, and even then working out the fight mechanics yikes. You see in the video I posted glowing piles, just had to be adults about keeping your own (this didnt mean there wasnt risk and someone might or would take full advantage if your gear dropped). That being said being both on edge, untrusting of who you are rolling with but knowing the limited amount of people who play it was done. I'm disappointed after 20 years not even a title.

wouldnt go in there with most people expecting to clear this easily

That's why you make it not drop items like ALL other DD.

People crying it costs TONS of money on potions, hp pots, etc....yeah cuz you want to solo or 5 man the MOST powerful boss in game.

It shouldn't even be close to kill or even damage with such small number of players attacking it.

You're silly. We could walk every single person in the entire game to the boss at the same time, and at the end of it. There would still only be 6-7 players standing, tons of people would lose gear, tons of people would be trolling, and it would become near if not completely impossible.

More people does not mean better. Coordination, strong characters, fully committed people not leeching with a single goal is how this was done. You'll likely never kill a boss in that dungeon because you are incapable of being a team player.
