Sunday Story Mode Dungeons

Hi alls.  I added an event to the calendar for Sunday morning called "Story Mode Dungeons."  I'm starting a new thread for feedback on this event in the Roleplay section, since light RP and Lore discussion are highly encouraged during this event.  Also, the time has changed.

Please use the new calendar signup function if you plan to attend so I can organize groups ahead of time.  You are still welcome if you do not pre-register, but priority goes to the people who did as we divide into groups of five.  Most important, be on time!

Sunday morning event for any Gaiscioch wanting story mode dungeons only. Meet Twilah in the roleplay room of Raidcall to coordinate who needs what and then grouping accordingly. The purpose of this group is to help facilitate people's advancement through story mode dungeons without pugging and getting to know your guildmates in a smaller group format.

I'd like to try this for a couple reasons.   First I think it might help the casual players have an opportunity to get to know some of their guildmates a little better since it is a small group as opposed to a zerg event.  Second, the story mode groups get a little harder to find now that max level characters are focusing on the explorables.  This gives people interested a chance to discuss lore and be patient through cutscenes, especially if players are new to dungeons or learning a new class.

Minimum level of character is 30.  We will do what the majority of participants need to complete!  Dungeon level breakdown for Story Modes:

30 Ascalonian Catacombs ~ located in Plains of Ashford

40 Caudecu's Manor ~ located in Queensdale

50 Twilight Arbor ~ located in Caledon Forest

60 Sorrow's Embrace ~ located in Dredgehaunt Cliffs

70 Citadel of Flame ~ located in Fireheart Rise

76 Honor the Waves ~ located in Frostgorge Sound

78 Crucible of Eternity ~ located in Mount Malestorm

80 The Ruined City of Arah* ~ located in Cursed Shore

*Arah is subject to the gates being open after successful completion of an @3 hour event.

If you are going to request a particular dungeon, have a waypoint in the zone ahead of time so we can start as quickly as possible.  Story mode dungeons follow the tale of Destiny's Edge and are a great way to witness and learn a lot of the politics and lore that affect the game stories.  Explorable dungeons are basically what happens "after" the story mode has occured.

Hey alls, I've tweaked the time on this to a morning event. We did try to combine two events on Sunday evenings (Novice dungeon runs and Story Mode following) but four hours + of dungeons and one overflowing into the other last night was a bit much for both event coordinators. I'd like to give this time slot a shot since it is 10am CST (my time!) and might be more convenient for some of the off-hour/oceanic players. Another thing we learned last night - If you've completed Story Mode of a dungeon on one character it does not unlock Explorable for your entire acount. FYI.

This is something I would be very interested in, Twilah. I had a great time running CM story with your group last night and would love to do it again. I do have to apologize for being so quiet during the run. I figured out afterwards that I had turned my mic off with the switch on my headset cord, and that was after 2 full dungeon runs of talking to myself and the cat. /doh Good hunting

I figured you were just really focused or maybe tired :) Hey this Sunday we'll talk about combo fields a little bit too if that's cool.

Raidcall is doing the connection error thing again this morning, so if you want to participate and cannot get on Raidcall please whisper Twilah.3609 before the start of the event so we can organize.

HUGE special thanks to Ralcore today for opening his ventrilo server for us to use while RC was bugged out. I hope everyone had a good time in CoF, and big thanks to Elyosune for getting the escort event going so we could open the doors to the dungeon. Lot's of learning this morning, and lots of ugly sweaters :)

I'm really sorry I missed today's event. Instead I got to balance precariously on a rickety wooden ladder while trying to untangle Rubik's string of Christmas lights. I love the holidays. /grumble

I would love to tag along as I've only done one story mode so far (Manor) but the times for this are 1:30am Monday for this Aussie. I'll see about keeping an eye on the event calendar as well as seeing who is on from time to time :D

Jay, I'd be willing to do some "aussie time" story modes. I've done like a total of.. hm, I guess 3 of them now. I just can't babble on Raidcall, because I am PST (GMT -7) aka server time, so its late night for me and the family is in bed for school and work during weeknights.

Sorry I could not make this last weekend. My son needed help preparing for his history final. I hope to make it one of these Sundays. Though I may not be free until next year. Hope you have successful runs in the meanwhile.

I am in church from 10:45 EST until about 12:30 EST so I won't be able to attend the scheduled time, but will be willing to do any dungeons if you just give a shout out in guild chat as I am off for the next few weeks and plan to do some serious gaming...LOL.

It's cool, I'm still playing with event times myself so this one and the fractals may change in January...especially since this time slot keeps me from church and that's not a good thing.

Hi all, if you'd like to participate today please note we will be using the public Raidcall, 5012. As part of our community outreach I have advertised this event on the Sanctum of Rall site. If we do get responses and you are not comfortable running with people outside the guild just let me know as we form up. I have no issue leading the pug group if necessary, but wiould like to put one non GSCH per group so they can get to know us.

Hi Alls, this Sunday morning I was eyeing Crucible of Eternity. It's located in Mount Malestorm and requires level 78. It's the only story mode that our event hasn't done yet. As always, we will go with what suits the majority of people who show up, so if you are 30 and want to run your first Ascalonian Catacombs by all means, please join us :) But I would like to mark this dungeon as our "go to" if we get a group like last week who is up for anything!

CoE, yeah - I will be there! That's one of the two story modes I haven't yet seen (Arah is the other, but I'm going to wait on that one until I'm at the appropriate spot in my personal story).

I have shifted this time around a bit, and I am changing it to an early afternoon event starting January. Mostly it's because the morning runs have kept me from going to church, but also we went from three to four groups down to one (and a partial this week) when I made the change to early morning.

It's alright to bring a couple friends with me, right? I play with my boyfriend and a good friend of ours and I want them to go on dungeon runs with me, but I don't want to bring them along if we're trying to keep this within the guild.

A move to Sunday afternoon would be awesome as I'd love to do some dungeons with you Twilah, but Church and family come first. This coming Sunday I will be out of town, but I am definately looking forward to doing some dungeons!

I loved doing the story mode dungeon with you. Your love of the lore and easy to understand directions made the event well worth my while. Your hilarious critique of the story was refreshing and informative. Looking foward to doing more dungeon stuff with you when I get a chance. Not this Sunday but maybe the next.

We've had a request for Sunday, 1/20/13, to form an Arah storymode group. If you have an 80 and would like to go please let me know so we can prearrange a level 80 group for it. As always, we'll still run groups for whatever people want/need on Sunday in addition to this group :)

I'm curious, is this the same storymode dungeon that's needed to complete the personal storyline? If so, I assume that credit doesn't count towards personal story, if its done out of order?

I still need all my story mode dungeons; haven't finished the last quests as yet, but working on them now. Will definitely be about on Sunday and interested in participation (working on getting the WPs through then).

If it ain't fixed, break it until it is.
