Are you guys playing with a tank or are you doing 4 dps and a healer/ 3 dps and 2 healers? Kinda sad that most MHCM groups wont even take a tank anymore since they just want an extra healer for the auras/buffs or an extra dps so it goes faster :/

I can see you guys skipping out on a tank so that the run goes fast.

The vast majority of runs take a tank of some kind.

3 DPS and 2 healers is not made because it's faster it's made because they can't find a tank, the healer lead sucks at healing and needs backup or because they have 2 healers that want to go (usually also cause 1 healer is learning). 4 dps and 1 healer is marginally faster (and very often not) than taking a tank anyway due to positioning.

Don't make an issue out of something that isn't one. Maybe people don't take you for some other reason Skilliard, I can't imagine what that is ofc...

When people take 2 healers, they take a priest and a mystic, one of each. This is so they have the crit aura, and the priest buffs/energy stars. It is faster because both of them provide a damage bonus to the dps. It's also easier too because 2 healers can overall keep the party alive much better.

And I don't have issues finding a group. I just run with my guild that's nice enough to take a tank. Look at lfg occasionally, you constantly see people looking for 2 healers or 4 dps in their lfg message. If you ask them if they'll take a skilled tank, they say they don't want one. It's just a bit sad that a certain class isn't accepted in pve much anymore, especially when the new upcoming content is designed to be beatable without a tank(and trust me if it's beatable without a tank, no one will want one when dps can make it faster)

1 Healer is fine and in good skilled runs people very rarely die so "keeping people alive better is non issue"..anyway most moves are one shot so if peopel are dying to dot the healer sucks [filtered]. I can't remember the last time I died in mchm, rarely do the dps I take die either. You gain on energy stars and lose on dps from the lancer/war as well as a more stable backdmg for the dps, at the end you gain nothing.

I only know 1 healer that makes 2 healer groups via pug and she is awful and needs the carry on healing. 2 healers doesn't make it faster at all, 4 dps makes it marginally faster because although you have another DPS they can't all attack from the back full time which means less dps.

This will be a team composed of community members on TR and we'll time their speedrun. I believe there's a tank in the group.

Great job today! Thank you for showing us what a speedrun is, TR! :)

The team cleared Crucible of Flame (3333) in about 10 minutes and the MCHM lasted just over 20 minutes even with a DC!

As always, you can watch the recorded stream in our channel. Even Treeshark stopped by to say hi and answer a few questions! (Here is today's video.)

Dat 6-man CoF. Tonka got carried~

EDIT: Oh yeah. And thank you for giving us this opportunity to help testing your future speedrun events. Me and the rest of the group had a lot of fun and we gave it our all to make it a good impression of both dungeon runs.
