This week ERG had their best attempt yet on the last boss of veteran Maw of Lorkhaj, getting the boss down to 0.7%! Hopes are high that next week it will be cracked! The next run will take place this Tuesday!
If you are interested in joining ERG as they stomp their way to victory the best place to start is by signing up for trials on Monday this week where we will tackle some of the easier trials and hopefully introduce some new members to the content!
We've seen some images of what the map changes are going to look like (below) - some big questions around the positioning of the outposts as it seems to be a distinct disadvantage to us in Ebonheart Pact! Time will tell just how this will be implemented in the end.
We have recently updated some rules for joining ECG. These requirements are not set up to exclude anyone – we actually want to help everyone getting the most out his/her PvP experience.
To join ECG you have to:
1. You have read all the rules and are willing to follow them. 2. Have talked to Sha or Zapa about ECG (pm). 3. You run a group play build and have checked that build with Sha, Zapa or any of the ECG members. You can also post your build on the forums. 4. You have to have TaosGroupTools ulti add on installed. 5. You are carrying potions (Immovable, Invisibility) with you to enhance your survivability. 6. You have our tabard equipped. You only get an invite when all those requirements are met! But if you need help with anything: Just ask – we have a score of members willing to help you to get ready for battle! We also want to encourage all members to go give PvP with EXT a try, if you haven't already. Join us in ECG, open groups or special PvP events!
We learned a few details about the next ESO DLC, Murkmire. It will be a zone similar to clockwork city in size. We have a new 4 player PvE arena called Blackrose Prison as well, including new achievements, titles, skins and master-like weapons!
There will also be some updated to Cyrodiil including destructible bridges and milegates and three new outposts! Will be interesting to see how all of that works!
Murkmire will be on the PTS from the 17th September, we can expect the release about 4 weeks after that.
We're now a couple of weeks into the most recent DLC and we've had several groups completing the dungeons! We've also had at least one group clear hardmode of Moonhunter Keep!
If you want to run the dungeons keep an eye out for any upcoming events or just ask in discord - there are always people up for running some dungeons!
ERG (Trials, PvE)
ERG will resume this week and will again take on the mighty vMoL - sign up for the event here.
The Werewolf group will again run this week on Thursday - sign up for the event here and join the discussion here.
Currently the PvP branch of our guild is rethinking our organised group (ECG) a bit. We are discussing changes that point towards tougher requirements for joining. This move is also accompanied by a renewed effort to get more guildies into ECG and also to help them to get 'battle-ready' for ECG. The main goal is to have a more focused group and to therefore win more fights. You can read more about it here.
We had another good run on Friday with lots of really nice fights. We even had a guest join us to see how our organised group works and we definitely played well together for the occasion! You can see some highlights from Friday in the video below:
The first weekend of Midyear Mayhem is over and we've been pretty much running groups constantly throughout that time, including a very fun filled ECG on Friday. To get involved just jump into Cyro, find people on discord and shout Maaaayheeeeem!
With Midyear Mayhem you also get absolutely ridiculous AP ticks, massive enemy groups and really intense and long battles - we'll have a video made after the event so you can see some of that but here's a few screenshots of what's been going on:
Congratulations to Kenrix who became one of the first emperors of midyear mayhem!
With the summer holidays and there being so much PvP to do, PvE has taken a bit of a back seat, you can expect regular events to return in September!
