Intp Posted a Battle Recap: Community Event: An Onslaught of Onslaughts!
Fog and the family gathered for our weekly Community Event. This week's adventure was Onslaughts! Onslaughts are an open world event that you can trigger by charging up cannons and life wells. This draws planar invasions for you to dps down for xp, pa and loots. -Charge up the cannons and lifewells first, then the middle. -Keep an eye on the map for where the invasions are coming from so they don't over run and kill your lifespring. -Cannon don't have to be charged and in fact can kill steal from the group if they kill mobs before they are tagged...

Intp Posted a Battle Recap: Syl Zone Event Boss Runs
Syl helped a number of the family get some Colossi kills done for the eterneal weapon quest. The zone events are also nice for dropping Tower Fragments. -Getting to the zone, locating the bulk of the group can be helpful in getting to the bosses in time. -One of the last stages is usually the closing of the rifts (but sometimes it's the invaders) when you are closing the rifts it makes it easy to summon guildies to you to help finish the last rift and then on to the boss in a nice group. -Zone event bosses are not a dps race, as long as you hit the boss you are good...

Intp Posted a Battle Recap: Sharpening the Ax: Q&A with DC Gear, Stats, Rotations, Planars Fragments...
It is easy to get into a rut on a game your are comfortable with. You go to the places you always go, you do the things you always like to do...and there is nothing wrong with that. However, if you aren't progressing because you are not confident in your build, your dps, your rotation, your gear, instance/dungeon/raid mechanics or generally don't want to make a fool of yourself...don't feel alone. The biggest debuff in this game, or in life for that matter, is fear of failure. Couple that in a high troll density environment like a pug and most of us would rather bang our head on the wall than have that kind of stress in our life...

Varder Posted a Battle Recap: Varder's Disapperance during the crifting run
First off, thanks to everyone for coming and to whoever took over the reigns after I disconnected. I got hit with an A.R.P. bomb. Address Resolution Protocol, that wiped my DNS file. I couldn't log on to the internet until I reset my DNS designations. I have a bundle with the cable company and it also took out my phone!!! Good news is I'm back up and running and protected now, hoping to take the lead again next week for "coffee and crifting" Good Hunting da V

Intp Posted a Battle Recap: After Action Review: Sunday Morning Crifting with Varder and the gang.
After Action Review: Sunday Morning Crifting with Varder and the gang. -Starting at 7am server time sharp, the family formed up to open...and close crafting rifts aka Crifting! -This week saw the addition of a simple but effective control measure to help keep the operational tempo flowing: Mark Yourself! -Each raider was asked to put a Raid Mark over their head by right clicking your own picture and selecting "Mark Target" and picking an overhead Icon to appear if you had a Lure to use...

Intp Posted a Battle Recap: Old School Dungeon Crawl
DC had us rolling like a freight train, picking up Guildies who needed to gear up or even their first trip into an Prophecy of Anhket Experts. Today was tank training day. We systematically went through each fight with two tanks to learn the mechanics. Even for a non-tank type, these tutorials are a great learning experience that can help you understand the "why" of a specific encounter. Saifon rocked the instance with great pulls, aggro management and positioning initially with DC's step by step instruction, followed up with a more hands off phase of coaching and lastly a triumphantly independent tanking of all of the instance encounters! Saifon did a great job and continued the Gaiscioch tradition of "quick tips" for critical mechanics and coaching through the encounters...

Intp Posted a Battle Recap: After Action Review: TD Progression Group
The family lead by the patient and intrepid Eluveittie tackled a coffee fueled Tantric Depths (TD) run. This was a great experience for me personally as I had not even been in the instance and was intimidated to try because of the LFR post in Cross Chat like "TD No Losers 500K+ dps or kill yourself". Being able to go with the family and getting some fundamental directions for the fight it a great way to progress. The TD also provides a scenario to evaluate the group and where each of us are in terms of progression, not only from a DPS perspective but also in tanking, support and heal mechanics...

Intp Posted a Battle Recap: Guild vs Pug Runs: A Knight and Dai difference!
Guild Runs vs Pug Runs: The advantages of running instances such as Prophecy of Ahnket with Guild members vs Pugs can completely change your perspective of the activity. There are many nuances such as routes, order, roles, interrupts, where to stand, where to move, when to blow cool downs and even simple things like "who's going to rez" get worked out by the team through practice. The stress level of this type of activity plummets when you have this sort of cohesion. One of the main reasons things are more sublime is that you know that the group is on a learning curve, so even if mistakes are made you know that people are learning, whereas with a pug group you are just happy to survive the encounter without the group falling apart...

Intp Posted a Battle Recap: Prophecy of Ankhket Expert Runs Guild Style
DC aka fiveofseven/diablotcanine lead an intrepid marathon of Expert with guildies. A few of the finer points when you do DC blitz runs: 1. In Darkening Deeps - Run to the Bottom - Kill the Sniper mobs on the ledges - Kill the mobs mass under the bridge - Burn bosses - Run all the way to the back wall of the Wearwolf encounter, avoid drawing aggro - Runn through the spiders all the way to the boss spider at the end, die in place SW and Rez - Stack on boss spiders behind - Drag all the slugs through their area all the way into the triple boss area, kill in tank order - Burn Scarn 2...

Intp Posted a Battle Recap: A-Crifting we will go...
Varder lead the Gaiscoch family through Ashenfell for a fun and loot filled 2 hours of Crifting! We close a whopping 30 rifts of all type! There was great communication and support through using the Heart icon to mark the next Lure bearer after the 3rd stage of each lift. This resulted in quick transitions from one rift to the next. Thanks to Pop's Dropped Gedlo pots and great pulling/grouping of mobs we closed a rift every 4 minutes! Overall a great Guild level effort with bountiful rewards! -INTP

Intp Posted a Blog: The future in retrospect.
As a returning player after a 4 year hiatus, I'm extremely happy with the welcome that I've received from the Gaiscioch family in Rift. I've tinkered with a few other games before deciding to come back to Rift specifically and with the exploration of the two expansions there has been a lot of cool content to play through but it's been the player base that has got me interested in staying! If you are a returning player, please pm in game for any help or even if you want a 'grinding' buddy! -INTP

Intp Posted a Battle Recap: Friday Mid level Adventures: Don't forget to say HI to Lady Nessie!
The Dendrome offers several activities that the Gaiscioch family tackled this Friday. We had a full 40 person raid for this outing and with Fog laying down waypoints it was a great time and thing flowed right along! As always great help from the group for summons and great cooperation! Stronghold Raid: These encounters pit the raid against an escalating group of baddies that attack from multiple levels. Use the bounce balls to hop up so you can get in range. These are 3D encounters and as you charge the equipment up it expands the platforms higher and higher...

Intp Posted a Battle Recap: Planar Anchors: A group XP boon and a fun time in one!
Following the Monday evening tradition, friends and family of Gaischioch took to Xarth Mire for a guided tour of the Planar Anchor mini-quest hubs. This group event allows the team to gather significant XP and Planar Attunement as well as respectable take of crafting mats and Planar loot. The action starts with locating the Planar Anchor points (Living Planar Anchor on map), which resemble footholds but are visible at any map zoom, making them easy to spot. For this run we were in the North East quadrant of the Xarth Mire zone on the Meteor in the Celestial Lands...

Mika Posted a Battle Recap: First time commanding
6th of June, 2017 changes were good for WvW. Now there are more players running even though many of the players are just hunting pips for reward tracks so they can earn WvW Claim Tickets and some day buy necessary pieces for WvW Legendary Backpiece. Anyway after update I have been playing WvW and I'm quite happy that now you don't steamrolled constantly as opposing servers have to spread their forces more evenly on all borderlands. So I was thinking it would be fun running GSCH WvW event. So I talked with Namrie if we both could lead WvW event on Monday 11am PST - 1pm PST...
