Foray Into Nightmare Ops
Yesterday I forayed into Nightmare (NiM) Dread Fortress with my ops group. I know, we’re a few months behind—that operation has been out for a while. But! It was exciting to go in and do it finally, especially after getting all of my gear to 180-rating.
We started after completing our first operation, Dread Palace Hard-Mode (HM). We had tried NiM Nefra before but had not beat her. We didn’t spend hours slaving away at it though. Last night, however, we got it on our second pull, which was great. Our DPS consisted of two Mercenaries, a Juggernaut, and a Deception Assassin (me!). I’m not sure what skill trees the others were using, but I was happy to see that my DPS was good enough to beat the boss.
In my guild, we set a time limit for raid nights, which I really like. I don’t want to be exhausted wiping over and over for hours on something. Because of the time limit, we really only had time for two shots on NiM Draxus (we did not get him down), which most of us had never seen before. I thought it was interesting that clicking those crystals through the maze damaged your health! There were a few differences from NiM and HM, which will take a few more pulls to get used to, but otherwise, I think we have a very good group to beat it tonight.
Have you cleared Nightmare Dread Fortress? What was your experience like? Let me know in the comments or tweet me @Heather_PLS!
