Spent over five hours doing the final boss for the VOG, got his health about half-way down then we would die. Every. Damn. Time. I expected the VOG to be a little challenging, but damn....guess it's all about the level/gear, even though I have three exotics, two of which are weapons and one as a chestpiece. There was some good that came out of it, though. Got an exotic rocket-launcher as well as two legendary pieces of Raid-Gear.

For the next time that I do this, what tips would you guys recommend? We had three people teleporting, the other three were to stay back and do some "damage control" to not only the boss but the aids as well. I honestly don't see where we went wrong, maybe because we were running out of ammo too quick? I don't know, but what I do know is that it shouldn't have taken THAT long to go through it all.

27 titan....I have a feeling that was part of my problem, but having a nearly fully upgraded legendary Auto Rifle as well as a Legendary Sniper and Exotic Rocket Launcher, I thought I was set TBH.

All I got was a crap legendary shotgun and a titan mark. Worse waste of time IMO.

Not going in at lvl 28 means you take a 32% damage penalty to enemies just one level higher then you (i've read the lost boss has lvl 28 enemies), so while it's certainly not required for you to be lvl 28 to beat the boss, you are losing A TON of dps just being 1 lvl under.

Most people play with their friends and I would say most people aren't 28+.

I'm not saying it's impossible to do VoG at 26/27, I'm just saying you are sacrificing 32-42% of your DPS when on the last stages of VoG. Which makes it a lot harder.

Unless you use them for something else. We only had one 27 and we used him to attack Harps while we were aggressing.

We have the exact same problem. We spent 5 hours to get to the final boss and we cannot kill him! So we have up, removed each other and haven't talked since.

my clan spent alot of time on the last boss. get about 3/4 of his health and die. i went and watched a video that explained the damage buff you get when you kill the oracles when teleported. got a routine down and stomped him lol. which im willing to bet your group is either not doing good damage control and the harpie enemies are getting you, or you are like we were and not shooting the boss while the damage buff was active.

It also helps so much to spam abilities and grenades since they pretty much recharge instantly. It does a **** ton to him, especially the trip mine from the hunter. I threw those out like it was ****ing candy. We killed him in about 5-6 teleports.

Me and my friends have the final boss down actually beat him 2x in a row in about 20 min. However ive done the full raid 2x now and haven't gotten anything but ascendant energy a shader and a warlock bond so you're doing better than I good sir.

The VOG is actually incredibly easy if you have a team that can follow simple instructions. it's hard if you try and play it with randoms

I honestly didn't expect the drops I got, hell even getting one piece of legendary armor was a surprise to me, let alone two and an exotic RL. My friends were so pissed, though.
