Work Schedule Change and Vacation

Hey guys,

My work schedule is changing, so raiding will be harder for me on Tuesdays/Wednesdays.
I can still attend, but wouldn't be able to use GINA or TeamSpeak since I'll be helping customers on the phone. I prefer not to raid while I work because I don't want to mess anything up.
The schedule will be like this the next 90 days until a new shift bid.
I will be in attendance Saturdays though.

This week I'll be flying out to SanFran, Cali for the first time, So I won't be on 20th to the 23rd.

And for my replacement on Sycos during the Queen Event; here are some tips.
Your goal is to just pull sycos; if you die, then its just gonna be harder.

> Time the Fire AE, usually I run into the tunnel to avoid the AE. It's not fun losing health while trying to pull them
> Warcasters can still hit you while you're in the tunnel, so be aware.

> Start on the EAST Tunnel; the east tunnel is on a higher slope, once you aggro the syco or puppet, run to the west tunnel, turn the corner, grab the other mob. It's easier this way because you dont have to worry about it.

Clicking won't work all the time; makes it harder if you're trying to be quick and efficient.
Once you have the mob on their HoTT; run to the west tunnel, grab, run back to the raid.

Mobs will eventually come to you, so this is the opportunity to say, "Sycos incoming"
once they're at the raid, then "Sycos at the raid"

Again, consider running in the tunnels to avoid fire AE to keep yourself alive.
Start from East Tunnel to West Tunnel for levitation advantage.
Use CYCLE NEAREST NPC hotkey and instant aggro.

-- Other notes --
-- Queen Mount --
I noticed Queen Mount spawns on the east side of the queen room where she starts. LOOK UP THE WALLS, i noticed it will act like a Xenomorph and scale the walls instead of "flying down" but still, keep an eye out on the sky!
HarmTouch will almost kill the mount.
Between Syco spawns, I run around looking for the mount to ease everyone else's pressure. Please be verbal in team speak.

-- SK AE vs Warcasters --
This is an experiment but I want all the SKs to consider this. =

What you need:
- Pet /hold /guard (no attack, whatsoever)
- Unsavory Sacrifice, Repulsive Sacrifice, Abhorrent Sacrifice (and any other PET AE I missed)

Note: These spells are on separate timers, so they can be changed.
Your pet will NOT die when casting.

It doesn't do much when it doesn't crit, probably like 5k damage,
but when it does crit, it can crit up to 30k!

I tried discussing this with Ommina; we don't know if it is the same effect as caster AE spells against warcasters, but try it out.

Good luck everyone.
