Thanks for playing tonight! (Destiny)

Thanks to the help of Chappy & Co, I did the entire Crown of Sorrows raid tonight. It's a really good raid! I think I like Scourge of the Past a bit more, overall, just because it's a bit more novel, but Gahlran is right up there with Skolas as one of my favorite Destiny encounters, I think.

It's honestly damn near perfect, I think. It's demanding, you have to be able to improvise, but you actually can improvise. A death isn't an automatic wipe. We had quite a few good saves and people rotating out of position to cover for something else on our winning run. Just a really great encounter, and it feels great to find a rhythm in a way that I don't think it has in the last few raids. Scourge became rote really fast because there's just not enough going on to deal with, nothing that really keeps you on your toes.

The best part is that there's no symbols to call out, no hidden shit that only one person can see. I hope that mechanic stays in whatever hole they buried it in.
