Hi guys,

Our guild is looking to start doing Opps end of the month.
Now back in WoW I knew where to do and what to look for, to provide my guild with detailed breakdowns of encounters and videos (L2Raid and Fat Boss).

Even tho I have been playing since day 1 early access, I still feel a noob so any help would be great.

Regards,

Wyer.

I have started to put strategy guides up for the ops, and will continue doing so after my midterm week is over.

Here is the link to the first boss in EV, and let me know what you think. Still trying to get a good design going.

The normal mode operations aren't jokes, but close. Super easy mode. Also the guild I was in that cleared both KP and EV on hard mode did it with most everyone in champ pvp gear.

Honestly as long as you have some competent people and a little gear, your guild will be fine for starting normal mode ops. If needs be look up boss encounters on youtube, but most aren't over complicated on normal or hard.
I think this is a great game for new guilds/leaders to get their feet wet before they add tougher content.


Edit: Can't forget about bugs! You'll run into them just as everyone is. Some have work arounds, some screw you, until the instance itself resets. Be patient...

EV normal is definitely geared toward fresh 50s. Champ gear is good to run in, and I'd recommend everyone getting any orange gear up to date with their mods so they are around Rating 124. You can get all those mods from heroic dailies:

other than that, running HMs to pregear, and having people research the fights ahead of time is really all that's needed

So you don't need full columni to do Normal Ops?

I was disallowed joining a group for *normal* EV the other night because I had only 2 columni pieces.

And I really want to get my guild to start doing Ops ( we are starting to get the number of lvl 50s up) but i was informed we need to grind HMs till we are full columni. But now after flipping through the forums I think the person I was told this by was teking the P***.

Any suggestions for minimum gear required for normal ops would be very helpful.

Thank you for your time.
