4 words: Iron Banner Mayhem Clash
I'm up for it as well. I'll be on around 8-8:30
For some dumb reason my update corrupted and it's downloading the entire $#@!ing game.
Are we going to try the raid tonight?
I can give it a shot if we have enough people. Or if anyone wants to do the nightfall, I'll do that too. Otherwise I'm fine waiting until another day, no rush.
I'm down for either. I could go for another failed attempt at Ice Breaker. Was on up until a few minutes ago. Not much going on so far.

I'm on. Need nightfall.
Sorry Dutch and Tab. My Internet $#@! the bed.
Yeah, Raze Lighter is definitely a winner here. I think we used three swords and three Ghorns. Me and a buddy joined 4 randoms and naturally there was a little chaos. After two or three wipes we were able to down the Deathsinger with probably 1/100 of a second left.
For Crota we had three Titans, so we used the bubble strat from the top-center platform since the ledge is no longer accessible. Crota seemed a little easier than the bitch, but having three Titan bubbles was a luxury for sure.
Apparently you can still kill 390 Crota with one sword if you time it perfectly. Looks like they ignore the first oversoul until they get him down the second time. Then they use a Celestial Nighthawk golden gun for the oversoul. Crota's immune state is apparently a little bit shorter now, so you can get him down sooner than you could before. The sword bearer then is able to use the Super on the sword to swing more quickly on the third down. I honestly never knew you could get a Super on that sword. I knew you could during that one story mission, but not during the raid.
does it still shoot nerf darts?
Yes sir, and they cause the enemy to explode if you kill them. No headshot requirement any more. Might actually be useful now.
I'm up for running Crota if anyone's on tonight.
I knew it was coming, but I'm kinda bummed the challenge mode is using multiple swordbearers. I loved running sword over and over for random groups on lfg back in the day and was hoping to be able to do that again. But I figure everyone's gonna learn and not be posting begging for swordbearers anymore.
Holy $#@!, just looked at Destiny tracker and I killed Crota on hard 176 times. That's pretty embarrassing, actually.

Crota is a pain in the ass if you only have one guy that knows how to run a sword. Most groups will need at least two runs. We kept breaking down after the first sword guy even though he was taking him down over half each time. We also had trouble keeping the boomers focused on the rock bubble.
Helpful SGA from Reddit for Crota:
Haven't seen these in any recent posts, so I thought I'd contribute.
If you hold forward like you're trying to walk inside of Crota and spam RT, you can do the ground pounds faster than standing still and spamming RT.
It helps to have at least one orb of light on the ground when you pick up the sword so you can get the sword super during your second down. The super can be used at any time to cancel the slam/right trigger animation. If you have the sword super, you can go RT-Super-RT in about the same amount of time it would take to do 2 RT attacks normally. Activating the super the instant your first slam connects with the ground cancels the recovery animation letting you go directly into another RT attack.
EDIT: RT on Xbox is R2 on Playstation.
