Shivermere 0 - 1 Ancient Wardstone Raid Bosses
I don't know if you guys have the same feeling about it.
Being in this server, Scarlet Gorge and now Scarwood Reach, nobody wants to do the ancient wardstone raid rifts. And I tried actively in some of the raids mounted for invasion, even on general chat to cheer up people to try it (if you may ask, my guild isn't interested at all in anything that the word "socialize".
Well this is a thing that could happen, moreover depending from which game people came, they are used to grind up alone and not try to do "social events", even if the game offered them a lot of it.
But what I found really denigrating is that being in several invasion raids, once finished the event, and giving the idea of making theses bosses, there were no answers in all of them. That's more of an educational issue.
So what are your thoughts? Do you know from some guilds/raids that do these bosses on a regular basis? Maybe is hard to achieve in our server?
to busy with: work, sleep, dungeon runs, pvp and rift events if I do 1 more thing I will have to either quit work or sleeping :P

I think I haven't explain myself correctly :P.
People work, have families, have to go to school, eat, sleep, go to wc... I have a family to care, a work to go and I am finishing a master in computer architecture (computer science).
So as you can see I don't have plenty of time for leisure.
That doesn't mean I can't play Rift or other games. What really surprises me is:
1) People, at least in my server, at least Guardian side doesn't care about doing anything that is not an instanced content, normal questing or the invasion of the moment.
Yeah. Invasions help to group many people from different guilds/unguilded. But is a "reactive event". You are being attacked, you defense and later you obtain some loot/currency.
Ancient Wardstone raid bosses are "proactive events", because you need to go finding all the nodes on map and trying to hold them without being captured by opposite faction to summon the boss. And people doesn't care, as far as I have experienced.
2) And that's my personal experience in several raid (not ALL, of course I've found really nice people here ), you suggest to do this event, and nobody answer.
PD: hummm, maybe I should use this topic to recruit some brave adventurers to test it!
Ancient Wardstones... isn't that the thingy they put in for Open World "PvP" players.. that rewards you with..... a "PvE" mob to kill?!
See where the problem lies?
Kind of reminds me of failhammer.. where the ultimate reward for all the PvP you did... was opening a city with PvE quests in it...
How is activating Wardstones, through an ability given to you by doing PVE rifts, and then doing their PVE quests, to start a PVE raid boss event, has anything to do with PVP?
They're entertaining bosses if nothing else. So what if it's pveish? Variety is the spice of life and all that!
I managed to get my guild together to do the Scarlet Gorge ancient wardstone boss. It was great fun, we really enjoyed it, and the server first was nice. But when we tried to get the Scarwood Reach one, we found out that the Ancient Wardstones are bugged (some had disappeared), making it impossible to summon the boss there. It was very disappointing after co-ordinating a raid to activate the wardstones to find that a couple just weren't there. Some investigation on my part revealed that the Droughtlands ancient wardstones have a similar issue.
So, we're currently leaving it until we can get enough people together immediately after a server reboot or until the bug is fixed.
