    It's not surprised it's also coming from a rogue. Just saiyan.

Bads and people who've never even started on Akylios before now will still get schooled by phases 1 and 2 and the rest of the mechanics, don't worry about that.
    Is this really true? Our guild got to 10/11 last week finally (17 man Darktide ftw!) and our first attempt on Akylios didn't come until Sunday, after the nerf. We went in expecting to wipe alot, but we got to P3 in an hour and half and decided to take a break on Akylios for the night. And come back strong next week.

    I figured P3 and P4 were still the hardest even after the changes. This gives me hope!

    See, my guild is the opposite. We 1 shot Silgen now every time (even a new guy in there last night who had never done it), but we struggle on Grug now and then and we'll occasionally die on RKM if a square pops up in a bad spot at a bad time.

    I personally think Grug is easy, but somehow people die.

    Incorrect. It does show Voodoo as 1st kill on 9/27. So in your estimation there are more than 536 ranked guilds and more than a 10% or so completion rate for the instance? Is there somewhere else you can point me to for more accurate and up to date information?

    As for the Maximation part, yes you are correct in that they have no kill for them listed.

    Before the changes, we spent two weeks geting through the Phase 3 transition and another two to get comfortable with phase 4. Then every week after that it's been automatic. It wasn't a hard fight to begin with, they just cut the time it takes to get it on farm.

    This is an appropriately tuned endgame boss for a sophomore MMO who took a big population crash. Rift just can't afford to be hardcore-focussed at this time.

    Hopefully ID challenge is fluidly synched with this new akylios, and gradually revs up the difficulty. HK left too many players behind in its difficulty push.

    Unfortunately, though, Trion's likely to screw it up again, overtune everything to hell because of feedback from a population that will do them no good in the long run, and lose more players in the badlands of midcontent.

    A smooth transition from this Akylios to bosses 1-4 of ID would be optimal.

    The game's barely, barely ready for a new tier of content. Most of the raider class got left back in stale content, so Trio needs to fix that.

    I'd wager Akylios still takes the longest to learn the first time of any boss in HK.

    I'm only disappointed that once you have mastered P3, its smooth sailing to a kill, when P4 used to be this crazy climax. I wish they had nerfed everything to keep the feeling of climax in place.

    And I wish it had happened after ID was released.

    Double CRAP!!!... I always thought Inwar was the final boss and everyone was trolling us about a boss called Akylios

    Nah, don't believe off sites like these tbh. They never have totally correct information. I'd check either the individual guild websites, or these forums.


    Now to go hunt for this Akylios boss......

    Sometimes murdantix kills 7 of us. Kid you not.
    We wipe on average twice on Silgen.
    HK takes us three hours from start to finish, and the new aky changes don't affect that by a single minute.

    Elitists are always going to run just far enough away from the masses who they consider inferior, draw a line, and say THAT is the cutoff between bad and pro. The more the masses achieve, the further they run to draw new arbitrary lines. In their heads there MUST be a difference between them and common people. It's a pathologic obsession among their kind.

    About all you can do is just keep taking their prizes away from them and seeing how silly their new goals become in their sigs.

    Good luck from what I've read he's difficult to pin down.

    What I am interested in is guild rankings and kill/completion rates. Is there a more accurate and trusted site which houses this information?

    How is he trouble considering we downed him? For someone like urself who cleared HK 3 days from when i first entered HK I feel our rate of progression is pefect. You just sound like an idiot.

    RiftRanks is the only one I know of. They got a lot of slack with how HK was calculated, but it's the only one that kept on top of it.

    HK World Firsts

    The top guilds stay pretty much in touch with each other and keep track of who has what, but as far as posting to a thrid party type site, nah. We can say our accolades are:

    World 3rd Inwar Darktide
    World 1st Inquistor Garau

    World 2nd King Molinar & Prince Dollin
    World 1st Sicaron
