Grand Master 2/3

★★★★ Novice

Dis someone manage to finish a GM 2/3 stronghold yet ?

And if yes, how on earth did you manage to do so and with wich gear/team compo ?

 

PS : This post is NOT about reporting what's wrong with those difficulties (I guess everyone is well aware of their issues and there is enough post about that allready), it's only to know if there is some "strategy" ot bypass to actualy complete something in GM 2/3 so please keep your comments that way !

My squad was able to finish GM2 Tyrant mine yesterday. It took us 2.5 hours. Technically doable but not fun. 

1. Colossus (500)

2. Storm (490)

3. Ranger (490)

4. Interceptor (470)

 

Everything was easy up until the boss. And it wasn't so much "hard" but slow and for the boss no way to clear mobs fast enough with our current damage.

 

We saw a lot of room for improvement though better combo/element synergy and overall gameplay. I personally didn't do that great and am a bit undergeared.

(NOTE: the mobs 99% everyone but the colossus)

 

Here's the raw footage if you're curious (https://www.twitch.tv/videos/384429659). (Full coms + Rage lol but beyond the complaints you hear us identify where we were messing up).

they gear up to 470+ if you cant get those level you cant handle the damage

or either be carried by people with 500 gear rating

they can take the damage and go for objectives as much as possible and ignore all the killing part

How can you gear up to 500 (or even 470+) since the higher actual gear is 47 and that doesn't even include all slots (best support gear is 36) ?

 

I am at 463 right now (with the most efficient item to reduce dammage taken and up shield and armor) and still get OS by any dammage in GM 2 !

Full Masterwork Javelin = 495

Full Legendary Javelin = 517

 

So to be 500 you just need a full MW gear and 3 of those legendaries, or since I have never seen support systems above 36

 

At least 7 Legendaries, 3 MW and 1 Epic

 

Do not trust those players here saying they are 420 and are doing gm2/3 solo with randoms (and completing GM3..) its just not happening at those levels you need a proper team and proper gear.

A friend and I pugged a GM2 Tyrant Mine, I am a 485 storm, he a 490 ranger, and the other two was a storm and interceptor. It was not that bad but everything was pretty bullet sponge feeling, especially the boss, and there were definitely moments where you just get downed instantly. I am not sure how you are supposed to do GM3. We went into a few and it takes an eternity to kill a legendary enemy and you are downed from almost everything.

 

Edit: I have not seen or heard of anyone actually completing a GM3 stronghold. No idea if it has been done or is doable for that matter.

One shot by the boss right? Not the mobs? Because that's to be expected. I hope I can find a squad with similar aspirations. At work right now so can't watch the video

Yes, thanks for catching that! I mean't to reference the mobs.

 

The boss was an actual one shot, as you said to be expected, but the spiders would hit you down to 1HP and since there were so many it was essentially 1 and done.
