Change Snowden DRM

Right now cause the timer happening in the middle of the escort the timer is really hard to beat simply for not having anyone with a speed buff for the npcs. Change it so all enemies spawn after the pre events and then the npcs just run and talk without it effecting anything like they do in literally every other drm. Also remove the elites that offer no interesting mechanics in the fight besides having lots of hp and make it kill the three portals and then go back to the boss. That is how it works on all the other bosses like the one in brisband and gendaran you kill the volcanos and it phases. The boss fight is pretty fun but its not a fun drm because it fails for really dumb reasons right now.

    then they should cut down the timer by a bit. it shouldnt be made easier, but the escort can be tweaked to gain no personal advantage and disadvantage

    As long as the time is mostly about killing enemies and doing the boss well. DRMs have a nice focus on the actual combat of the game instead of weird gimmicks like you see in dungeons. This is the only DRM that feel hard for the wrong reasons.

    This is the only drm that is kinda hard to solo though. You have more than 50% of the timer left on the other ones but in this one its always 2min max without any wipes. usually below 1min.
    and then the boss is getting protection for no particular reason aswell. just to mess with power builds.

    Have someone quickness or super speed the npc and you will have 9-6 mins left mate.

    WITH swiftness its 7min for the endboss. which has 3 phases and bombards you with chill. you kinda need op solo builds to finish it in time in the first place and this is the only drm where this applies.
    This was about solo. the escort takes too much time. you cant pull adds together because they have stab so even killing the spread out chill spamming mobs becomes a nightmare. it is possible but on another level than all the other drms for the wrong (escort) reasons.

    dont forget gw2 isnt a game about solo-ing things.

    snowden cm is not easy .. but Thunderhead Peaks fro solo run is more awful.

    If you’re getting to the boss with only two minutes left on the timer then it’s less about the movement speed of the NPCs and more to do with very low DPS.

    You may be right. I read a post about someone having two min left on the timer after reading their other post about having 7 min on the timer with swiftness. Looks like they were referring to two different points of time in the DRM.

    They’re technically wrong about this CM being the only one where people usually have two min or less on the timer after beating the boss. You see this with Fields of Ruin and Thunderhead Peaks as well.

    The Heal Firebrand has several ways to buff the NPCs' speed. Shouldn't be an issue. Unless you play without one. ;)

    That's true, though.
