Darksend's Weekly Tip: Raven Mount Tutorial

This week, I am launching my youtube channel with my first instructional video.

I recommend watching it on youtube if you are watching it in HD even if the sound is shifted slightly in parts.

This was just to get my feet wet with editing again as I plan to do several more instructional videos. If you like the idea post some feedback about what kind of things you would like to see. If you have specific questions about the video most of them are answered in the voice over but if they are not just drop a comment and I will be glad to answer.

One thing that is not mentioned in the video, you do not have to clear the entire room, but it is very risky. When he banishes himself the birds can agro other pulls, but it was not always the same pull every time. If you want to roll the dice and potentially save time you can but I recommend against it.

As always, all the past weekly tips are viewable here and here.

(10 man yogg kill will be up by next week, server second AFAIK - my alt got the server first FFS alts)


  1. Nice video! Well I do an almost identical run, with identical gear, in 15 mins each week. The only thing I didnt know was you could sneak past the first boss - that'll save me a good 3 mintues at least- ty! Trash wise, I always clear the whole room too, I dont see the point in risking a pull, and I pull 2 packs when beserk is up because its totally healable and they die so quickly. I never thought of trying to CC them. Then again, I do use more dps gear. I've needed even less self-healing post-3.1 - maybe good old SD is providing better mitigation? WHo knows... anyway, good luck to you too. I'm still waiting on mine.

  2. Run this about 10-15 times so far with no luck. The video helped with a few hints though, thanks.

  3. And another 5-10 times with no luck so far. I've started to kill Ikiss just so I can have a log of how many times I do it. Hey a positive is it only takes 20 minutes or so to do it, coin is decent, and I might finally get Lower City faction to exalted!
