Novice Dungeon Runs

 

The Ruined City of Arah (Story)

 

Once called the City of the Gods, the fair capital of Orr now hosts the Risen hoard and their leader, the dreaded elder dragon Zhaitan. The reformed members of Destiny's Edge have joined with the airships of the Pact in an Assault on the dragon's hideout and have requested your help to destroy the evil once and for all from the face of Tyria.

We'll be meeting up for this outside the dungeon in Cursed Shore, so make sure you have the waypoint before the event. We'll be organizing in Raidcall 1101 in the GW2: PVE lobby for organization at 2:45PM with plans to leave out around 3PM.

Since we usually have more than one group, priority for Group 1 will be given to those members that sign up for the event through the Event Calendar (Just click the event in the Event calendar and select "Request to Join"). This will help to make sure that we get an accurate headcount beforehand amd make sure that the event starts in a timely fashion.

Also, this dungeon ties in with the end of your Personal Story quests, so while its not required, it's highly recommended you finish those quests before going on this dungeon (as the follow up quest is only available to those who have finished both Arah and their story quests).

 

Event Update

Since this is the last dungeon for this run, Novice Dungeon Runs will be taking a hiatus next week (Feb. 3). From there, we've got a few options open for new activities, so I'd like to throw a few of those ideas out and see if any of these sound better than others.

  • Restart the Novice Dungeon Runs schedule, starting with Ascalonion Catacombs. Keep the event focused primarily on Story modes and have a new dungeon every week.
  • Change the event to Advanced Dungeon Runs, switching the focus to Exploreable paths only. Group consensus at event start will determine which dungeon/paths to focus on, but still making sure someone can lead people through the dungeon (since I would like the event to still be approachable)
  • Change the event to focus on low-level walkthroughs of Fractals of the Mist. This would be focusing on leading people through their first few runs of Fractal dungeons
  • Something else entirely I haven't thought of yet!

If any of these options sounds like something you'd be interested in, or you have a better idea for events you'd like to see based around dungeons/endgame PvE content, please post a reply and let me know. I'll be making the announcement on Feb 3 for the upcoming schedule, right before the Great Tyrian Adventure. How convenient! (You know you want to go sign up for it here: http://www.sanctumofrall.com/events/1349/ )

 

Looking forward to seeing everyone there for the end of "Season 1" Thanks again for all your support in helping make this event as successful as its been (especially for a newbie like me)!

Signed up. This is something I have been waiting for for quite some time. I finished all my previous story quests on my first toon a couple months ago. Never got around to actually running this yet. Very much looking forward to taking part! (and it's a time we can definitely do, because it's a public holiday so Jase doesn't have work, yay!)

Yes, excellent timing as Marrra pointed out with it being a public holiday for Australians when this is happening :D Unfortunate for me, I only have one toon to choose from as my other 80s are slack and not done the story to the last step :P But that means I will be sorted and ready to go without fussing who to come on as some know I can be like that and worse still ;)

Gratz glad it went well :) My recommendation going forward would be to do any dungeon, any mode and via votes determine which is going to happen. This works nice for those trying to complete their dungeon master titles but just need story mode on dungeon a and path 2 and 3 on dungeon b, etc... without having to wait through the entire schedule. Though given there is already a story mode runs earlier in the day the exp mode would work nice. You could always include fractals as an option for exp dungeon choices, I don't see why to separate them. Hopefully the update today fixes the d/c and lvl restrictions.
