Topics I've Started

Zybez Final Collage

30 August 2018 - 10:57 AM

Dear Zybezians of all stripes,

 

It is with great sadness that I post this, but as you all probably know, the Zybez forum is closing and will become read-only in a couple of weeks.

 

We would like to solicit your help in a little project that will hopefully help to preserve everyone's memories. What we would like to do is make a collage of images as a final project to celebrate the years of Zybez memories, good times and bad, arguments and clan wars, and so much more. We are inviting you to submit images, whether they be achievement based (your first 99, that elusive chaos elemental pet, or your max cape...) or otherwise (your character performing an emote, slaying a monster, chopping a yew tree?), and we will incorporate them all into a collage.

 

Please bear in mind that as usual, there are some obvious ground rules:

 

  • Nothing offensive & no profanity. If there's one or two bad words we can censor it out for you, but we don't want to blur half the image.
  • Avoid anything too flashy or eyestressing.
  • You're welcome to submit as many pictures if you want, but identify 2 or 3 favorites. We want to make sure there's a good spread of pictures from everyone, and at some point it is just too much.
  • We reserve the right to exclude images we deem unsuitable.
  • Identify your RSN/username with your image(s) for reference purposes.

Feel free to ask if you have any questions or would like more information. We may set up a dropbox if we get a significant number of images.


Looking for ROTS and/or Raids (1 kill)

08 June 2018 - 3:01 PM

I'm looking for a group willing to take me for ROTS and/or Raids, hopefully over the weekend. For the moment I'm just interested in 1 kill and I haven't done either before, so I can try and fulfill whatever role is needed and preferably isn't too complicated. Feel free to message me any time on "Arceuus" in-game or message me on here - if I don't respond right away I'm likely afk in the lobby. Thanks in advance! 

 

Done now, found help elsewhere. May be interested in doing more kills at some point though.


Nex Event - 9pm 16 Mar EST / 2am 17 Mar GMT

10 March 2018 - 12:04 AM

What: We're going to fight Nex! Hosted by Gintoki and myself.
When: 21:00, Friday March 16 EST / 01:00 Saturday March 17 GMT/ etc... Most likely going for an hour or two.
Who: No requirements imposed outside of requisites for the dungeon, i.e. 70 in Agility/Strength/Ranged/Constitution. However, be advised that without a high Ranged level and decent weapon, accuracy at Nex becomes problematic. You'll also need to gather and assemble the frozen key beforehand to be able to fight her.
Where: Meet in the Nex lobby. You can PM me or join "Arceuus" friends chat. This way we can see our own chat and won't spam Zchat too much.
World: To be determined when we get started.
 
The Zybez events team is pleased to present to you our nex(t) adventure! I don't know how many more puns we're going to be able to fit in here, but I thought something to break the ice might be nice. By now you've probably gotten my drift - we're going to face a boss that resides in the icy prisons of the original God Wars Dungeon.

This boss is a bit more difficult than our previous events in late 2017, and as usual it's a wise idea to not bring gear that you cannot afford to lose. However, together we should be able to bring down Nex plenty of times. With a high drop rate for uniques and a decent-sized team, we have a great chance to score some pieces of the famed ancient equipment. Will we be blessed with Zaryte choice? Will it be a virtu(ou)s outing? There's only one way to find out, folks...

For the event, either Gintoki or myself will be creating an instance. The cost is on me so there's no need to worry about the instance fee. We will be roughly keeping track of how many people come for how many kills and split up loot accordingly at the end. Ask in the friends chat [name] for details of which name to join for the instance closer to the time.

In the event of a death, you have two options for reclaiming your stuff in RS3. Option one is to buy it back directly from Death for a fee. The second option is to go back to the lobby area and reclaim from your grave. Bear in mind this second option may be difficult to execute if you're not maxed.

Getting there/gearing

It's strongly recommended that you devote two of your bank presets to Nex. The first should include equipping ceremonial robes and/or the shard of Zaros, along with teleports to God Wars Dungeon. The robes allow you to skip killcount and proceed into the Nex lobby. Without these it will be virtually impossible to kill Nex efficiently. Luckily, they are tradeable, so grab yourself a set before the event. The shard of zaros negates the aggression effect of all the NPCs in the area leading up to the lobby. Without this item, it is still possible to make it to the boss chamber, but can take more time.

In terms of gear, you should use ranged. HOWEVER, your armor must not favor ranged defense, because then Nex will melee you and cause problems later on. Something like hybrid armor + melee boots will work, or ranged armor with melee boots and gloves.
Due to the mechanics of how instances and Nex's usages of protection prayers, if you use magic or melee you risk reflecting a large amount of damage on yourself, or at best not being able to deal damage for several minutes. The pattern will be as follows:

* Start in Nex lobby, equip your Nex preset (not ceremonial robes!)
* Join instance from lobby, hop down
* Teleport out (tele to house tablet, max cape, etc.)
* Equip ceremonial robes, teleport to Nex
* Restore health/prayer as necessary
* Equip Nex preset and any other preparations necessary for the next kill.

The fight

The actual fight is composed in 5 different phases - all different, some more difficult than others. I'll be brief on attacks and counterstrategies, but here's a quick run-down of things to look out for on some of the more important ones. Between phases, you will need to kill one of Nex's mages in the four corners of the arena.

Phase 1 - Smoke

More annoying than others, this phase allows Nex to drag and swipe you for damage if you're not careful. Use Freedom/Anticipation to block the stun possibility. Nex will also run into one of the chutes in the middle, dealing a lot of damage if you're caught in the way. Watch out or this could be a deadly combination.

Phase 2 - Shadow

Nex will deal a lot of damage to you if are within melee range, and this will be an issue if you didn't set up right as described above. Other than that, the only other concern is shadow traps. When Nex screams "Fear the shadow!" you must move off your current spot to avoid taking moderate damage.

Phase 3 - Blood

This is an infamous phase, and one where you want to be on the cautious side if new. Avoid dealing any damage to Nex until she siphons 2 blood reavers and raises her wings, or it will heal her. In addition, bleeds at any time during this phase also heal her. It shouldn't be necessary to kill the reavers in our team, but you can attack them to gain adrenaline whilst you wait.

In a second attack, Nex will use 'Blood Sacrifice.' She will mark someone, and if you are marked, you must get away or Nex will damage you and heal a large amount. If you are chosen, a message in red appears in your chatbox. Use Surge to get far away and block it.

Phase 4 - Ice

Ice Prisons are the only real threat here. Nex will shout 'Die now, in a prison of Ice!' and one player will be stunned and trapped, to be dealt a large amount of damage when the ice shatters. If someone else is trapped in ice, click the icicles to free them. If you are trapped in ice and can't make it out, Freedom -> Eat -> Resonance and you should survive, unless you have a very low max HP.

Phase 5 - Zaros

This is a vanilla phase with not much special going on. Don't drop your prayer or focus as Nex can still do ~5000 damage with unblocked attacks. You can concentrate mostly on DPS to finish her off (just don't get sloppy and die). When she dies, she'll activate Wrath which will hurt everyone close by, so move out of the way or Surge especially if you're low on health.

There you have it - come join us next week to give it all a try!
