So im having a terrible time finding anyone to do the legendary bounty. I usually play later at night, about 12-4am EST. I really want to finish my open skies avhievements and this is the last thing i need. If anyone has advice or would help me sometime id greatly appreciate it, and im on stormbluff isle

    Try waiting until Crystal Oasis Bounty is a Daily Achievement. Usually on those days, you get people doing Bounties all day so it's easier to find a party.

    Also, try looking at the Party Finder occasionally, to see if anyone is putting up Bounty Trains in the area as they'll end up doing the Legendary Facet eventually.

    Cat: Meow.

    Do you have mentor tag or commander tag (easier to join from map for players). Both help to create a focus on map and get people to help you out.

    Make a call out in map chat channel (for mentor tag use [shift + right click] on closest POI, Vista or WP to show people where you want them to come or meet. If you have a commander tag (squad) you can also make LFG (or you need to create a party). Make clear that people on map should not get to close where there this bounty will be marked on map (a orange ring - boarder that trigger countdown - with a small icon looking like a dot in centre) as that start a countdown for killing bounty or it will be gone and you will have pick bounty up at bounty board. Some player might also need some time to get there where bounty are showing up on map, especially when they lack some mounts to get there fast or get in combat (which might slow them down).

    You can write a short message in Notepad and copy 'n' past that into chat (party or squad channel). Explain that stun break (while knocked down time can be reduced), stability/resistance (boon) and condition cleanse help to fight this boss. All Bounty are on a timer so you will want to reduce time that you can't combat. This boss is also a bit from WP so player might need to rez downed player (WP: Temple of Kormir as the closest one) when it is possible.

    Is it this Bounty you need for Griffon: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Legendary_Corrupted_Facet

    In that case make sure to have stun break and stability in group as it will reduce the knock back (use stun break to get up faster). The random Unstable Magic is hard to predict (if it turns out there is combo of defensive and offensive UM, then group maybe want to reset it by time out and and pick up Bounty again).

    Here is a list over possible UM: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Bounty#Unstable_Magic_Abilities

    Use Call Target and Take Target to show where group should put their attention (as healing tendrils can heal boss up and other UM abilities can make fight time out when not paying attention to things like this). If you have never used this for targeting look up on GW2 wiki and set up key bindings that you can access fast to attack adds or UM abilities around boss and then re-focus on boss. Call Target will also make it possible to see which Unstable Magic abilities boss have with both two blue icon and in text around HP/Defiance bar.

    Also make sure to have condition removal for yourself and that group have it as this boss make use of Confusion (damage from using skills including healing skills).

    Abilities (from wiki - linked above)

    Unstable Magic Abilities
    Knocks Back
    Inflicts Confusion
    

    Good luck!

    The game is cross-server, apart from WvW, so all servers play together in PvE. The only difference is that the EU players can't play with the NA players, and vice versa.

    The successes I have had: call out in map chat - don't do this when casino blitz/pinata is on because many have come to the map to do that event (every two hours). As well as calling out in map chat, LFG works very well. You'll need to post in the PoF/Crystal Oasis section for people to find you.

    The problem that I have noticed with many bounties is that people are so used to joining a tag, they won't join unless one is up. If someone who is helping you has a tag (assuming you don'), you could ask them to tag up for you. I've seen mentors asking for help in map chat, and seeing most people ignore them. I tag up and suddenly there are 5 people insta-joined. I'm sure I'm not the only comm who has experienced this.

    We all had to do that legendary for the griffon, so we remember what a PITA it was trying to do it with few people. For legendaries, my rule of thumb is 20 people minimum. I expect more than a couple of people to be downed, so a higher number stops that being the difference between completing the bounty and running out of time.

    Bounty day is very good, I ask for bounty requests if I am comm'd up. I've been in squads with other comms who do the same.

    Good luck!
