I can make it this time and Storm is interesting. I've done the raid of it already (though no other types ) It seemed really easy. That may have been group makeup and players though. I did it on day one of its launch and not since, so it's kinda hard to really tell.
I'll see about getting into some more of them this week and learning a bit more
I should be available Saturday for whatever is run. This is a 3-day weekend due to Memorial day, so some folks will be traveling or have visitors. As needed, you have my minstrel or hunter as both can do Draigoch, the minstrel is able to run in the top pair or bottom group. For lesser runs such as SoM, you might like my newly minted 75 Guardian.
I've run Storm as a 6-man or lower, good for medallion collecting especially, and it is not a long run. In those, we had 3 waves per gate, best not to go past the gate right away if possible to cut down the number of adds and to prevent Saeradan from trying to kill everything; when he dies, we lose. A Lieutenant comes up right away after each gate. At the end, a tank is needed to keep the big guy busy while everyone else kills adds before switching to help the tank. The loot box at the end doesn't show up until the swirly post is clicked.
in the SOM raid, at the final boss, there are something like 4 drakes that appear, but they are not all that hard to fight. Or did not seem all that hard to fight in the group I ran it with that one time on the day it launched.
Storm on Methedras 6-man skirmish completed twice with the same group: Gorlim (minstrel Aeronwy), Hurin (captain Hiurred), Irmo (guardian Irmogar), Miriel (minstrel Mahariel), Nimrodel (hunter Ardisian), and Varda (hunter Fainan). Then we went for random skirmishes with the instance finder: The Battle in the Tower completed: Same group except Nimrodel had to leave, replaced by Indis's lore-master Mereniel. Amon Sul completed. Gorlim and Indis had to leave. Then we did Limlight Gorge dailies, something Annael's computer could handle: Annael (burglar Annil), Hurin (captain Hiurred), Irmo (guardian Irmogar), Miriel (minstrel Mahariel), and Varda (hunter Fainan)
