With PvP and WvW pretty pretty dead at the moment and the recent release of legendary armour I have a renewed interest in raiding.

So I invested some time into my goal of making a set of legendary gear. I looked up the builds, fixed up my gear (most of my characters still have exotic gear and some weapons even have major sigils lol) and watched videos.

After all this i parked myself in the aerodrome and watched the raiding lfg window like a hawk. I soon came to realise that trying to find a raiding party is a very difficult task as a pug. More difficult than killing the boss itself! No one was interested in taking me as I only had 4 boss kills. I even considered recording myself doing the dps rotation on a golem, uploading it to youtube and linking it in my lfg advert!

Then I came across The Raiders Inn on reddit. This is a discord community (https://discord.gg/MZhrUwJ) where experienced raiders give lessons on raid bosses and where raiders in general hang out. The trainers advertise sessions they will be running and you can sign up to them.

Last night I joined a group to try and kill the Keep Construct boss. This was a boss I had never even heard of let alone attempted, and within about 1.5 hours and 7 attempts, we killed it!

So just wanted to share this with everyone incase there are others out there who want to get into raiding and don't know where to start. My hope is that through this community I may be able to find a group that I can raid with more regularly.

Lastly - I came to deposit my reward item into the KT guild hall and saw that we have 100s of reward items from raid kills, who in KT raids so much? It's a shame we have so many kills under our belts as individuals but we could never get a raid group going.

Thanks for mentioning that place, Pocket! Whenever I get back into gw2, raiding will definitely be a major point of interest for me (due to the legendary armour). :)

Was given this build resource by a buddy of mine who raids allthedamntime.

RAID BUILDS

I'm sure you could ask on The Raiders Inn for build help but this site is only for raid builds and updated regularly.

We have a few hardcore raid people who play with a raid team, and they do speed runs. Belrog has a very good team and most of the rewards are from him I think.
