Kill count[edit source]

I thought it went mostly well. Notably it was enormously more successful drops-wise than any event before which is always nice. My only issue is start time. While it officially started at whatever time it started at, most people already had their kcs at that time. The organizers refused to sort people into fcs for a good twenty minutes after that, and once we were sorted, my chat waited a good ten more minutes for the last few stragglers. I'd like in the future for a time to be set, and we're going to start at that time: not wait for everyone to get kcs at that time. (wszx) 02:20, April 17, 2011 (UTC)

This event was held the way the other GWD events were, where the starting time is a rally and walk to the dungeon, not the time to enter the boss chamber. I think it works well like that, although I personally go a little early to get kc. For the Zamorak and Bandos events, competition outside the boss chamber for monsters was high when tons of people showed up. Anyway, I think it's better to enter the boss chamber as a single group, and waiting is simple enough. --Saftzie (talk) 02:38, April 17, 2011 (UTC)
I know that's how it's been done before, I'm suggesting that it be changed. (wszx) 03:12, April 17, 2011 (UTC)
Even if we did change it for people to have their killcounts before and actually go into the boss chamber when the event starts, there would still be a large group of people who will say "lul wut wait lemme get kc". The current way we do it is more sufficient imo - that way the large group of herpderps will have time to get their killcounts, and those who already have it are good to go. You're always free to lobby and semi-afk until we're ready. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 06:20, April 17, 2011 (UTC)
I think that could probably be mitigated if we made it clear that whatever time you guys choose is the start time and people ought to have their kcs before. It's not really a huge deal, I guess but waiting for 25 mins after the start time is kind of a bummer =/ (wszx) 06:26, April 17, 2011 (UTC)
Hmm well, maybe we'll try it next time and see how it goes. (: sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 06:26, April 17, 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps both could be in order. Say "We'll be rallying at Falador at xx:00 for the trip to GWD and plan to enter the boss chamber at xx:30" or something like that. If people want to go earlier or later, they still can. --Saftzie (talk) 13:11, April 17, 2011 (UTC)
I agree with wszx. I was one of the "stragglers" who turned up at the start time to get my kc, because as far as I could tell that's what the page instructed (it said we would move as a group from the trollheim teleport area, which seems unambiguous to me). I'm happy to allow time to get my kc first, but in that case the page should clearly say so. As long as people bring appropriate god items, I don't think going in together provides any additional safety (and if it did, it wasn't provided by this system since some came early and some didn't). That said, I enjoyed the event and appreciated a safe introduction to this boss fight. Stewbasic 13:17, April 17, 2011 (UTC)

Drops[edit source]

For me his was a great event, for the first time ever I got a decent drop worth over 300k. I think all the teams together got around 6 shards and 2 hilts which is pretty amazing considering we haven't had any big drops ever. With those drops we could of made two SGS' OMG!   Swizz Talk   Events!   08:59, April 17, 2011 (UTC)

The UCG/Fergie team got a BCP at the Bandos event. I'd call that a big drop. Overall (2 out of 3), I'd say the GWD trips have been good for drops so far. --Saftzie (talk) 14:00, April 17, 2011 (UTC)

Awesome[edit source]

Great people, fun boss and a 11mil hilt split, can it get any better? Don't think so.

Really awesome event, looking forward to another GWD event in the future.

My 1st GWD boss[edit source]

This was my very first GWD boss, and I gotta say, that was one helluva fight. I missed the second hilt drop, but I got some good stuff out of that place. Really good experience and I hope there's another event like that in the near future! [[File:Armadyl_symbol.svg|0x35px]] SeraphKnight Quest point cape.png 19:59, April 17, 2011 (UTC)
