Normally this is my (Anyad) turn to run the mother ship raid, but I have an all day appointment that I need to attend, and I'm not sure if I'll get back in time to kick off the raid. So App is gonna kick it off in fact I am late getting back. So!!!
Friday right after the last Hami Raid ("around" 8:00-8:30pm est) @Apparitionwill be running an Instance Mother Ship Raid. Get your best, your strongest +35 character, and all we ask is you MUST have the "Member of Vanguard" Badge. Help @Apparition take down this Rikti menace.
When @Apparition starts announcing in LFG channel STAY where you are, DO NOT come to RWZ broadcasting for invite, Just send him a TELL and he'll have trained Vanguard LIMO Driver come get you and bring you to the RAID.***Remember to get your 'Member of Vanguard" badge by doing some quick missions from Levantera in the Vanguard Base, Before you send the tell. or the invite will not work***
I know what you are thinking. " Anyad but why an Instance run?" Well, my friends here is why.
-It is new and exciting
-Merits are collected by the league not the team, (averaging about 1200-1400/run) so even the whiny tanks who complain about only getting a couple hundred merits should get as much if not more than the Blapper.
-No waiting in RWZ2. all 48 members will get in no waiting for zone cap to clear
-Don't have to run to RWZ, just stay where you are. Atlas, Ouro, PD, Grandville, SG Base, does not matter Send a tell and we will come get you
-Hospital is close by, no traveling halfway across the world when your slacker healer is ignoring you because you bit off more than you could chew
-Smaller Map, the task is the same, but we lose half the map and the riff raff that it comes with it. So, the Lag should be less, unless your system sucks nothing we can do about that.
-All players will be level 50, no worrying about making sure your team leader is 50. level 35+ can some play with the level 50's
-No team balancing, every team will get a meat bag, but after that it does not matter league shares in the rewards.
-All Rikti, mobs, and pylons will be level 54, and believe me them pylons pack a punch (excellent place to unlock Incarnate XP, I personally have unlocked all 6 in little over 2 runs).
-But We need to get the badge to get into the instance. It's just like Magi(Lore/Destiny) or Tin/Pex(Alpha). Well, this instance needs to have the "Member of Vanguard" badge.
This is Not the regular Zone MSR it is an iMSR (INSTANCE) version. So please do not tell us you do not need the badge to run the MSR. Your right, you do not (for the zMSR) but this one is the Instance version in which you do need the badge.
****You cannot enter the INSTANCE without the "MEMEBER of VANGUARD" badge. So you must be level 35+ to talk to Levantera. She will make you kill 10 Rikti and chat with other Vanguard NPC's then will give you the Badge. Takes like 3 minutesLevantera | City of Heroes Wiki | Fandom****
