    Default Hardmode Ember Conclave

    Anybody planning on progressing right off the bat with Ereetu last? Or are people going for the quick kill first?

    Well the question is, what does the community count as the first kill?
    First normal mode kill, or first hardmode?

    I can see the top guilds having a flexible approach to this encounter.
    If they are close to killing the Conclave in normal mode and still have plenty of time until reset I imagine they'll intentionally wipe and decide to work on the hardmode and hope they can get it.
    But if time is short until reset then they'll probably just take the normal kill and then progress to the new bosses next week.

    Depends how RiftProgression is handling it. That will determine the scores and therefore the approaches taken by the competing guilds.
    Yes, I raid in pink, what of it?

    Why would you not kill it for the equivalent of a relic drop the hard way just because some site says you're behind for doing it?

    Forget the site lol...go for hard mode till the last raid day.

    The question is do you work on the Hardmode or move onto the Earth wing once the gate is opened?
    Nope.

    You may be able to work on earth wing before killing conclave next week. I hope that's the case, so people can just save their conclave attempts till their last raid day of the week. If Trion's all about not making raiders feel intense pressure to min/max ID, they should give them a face-saving out so they have an excuse to take the easier win at the last minute.

    If we fail hard mode, we're just moving on.

    We're going to go straight into hardmore to try to get the bonus loot chest sooner than later.

    You will be able to progress off the bat, we're not going to penalize you for choosing to do Hard mode off the bat.

    Looking back at RIFT is bittersweet. Ah damn.

    No, there's like a best in slot shoulder drop that comes in addition to normal loot drop if you defeat it the hardest conclave general (ereetu) last.

    Is that like the hexed token or an actual drop? If the latter is there one for every class?

    +10 to Trion for including this. I've really enjoyed some of the challenge achievements in HK that ask you to push your raid in new ways. Look forward to more content like this.

    If this is successful, which I believe it will,I think they will continue to do it with other bosses or other tiers.

    Really? I must say I was truly and utterly disappointed with the HK achievements. Ofcourse, a few of them we had done post-nerf.

    The only achievement I really considered an achievement was Perfect Akylios, which we didn't get until the first night post-nerf sadly.

    Which achievements did you really enjoy?
