The strike two weeks ago with the boss that keeps disappearing and electrifying everything had an area where someone could wait and keep shooting respawning anomalies while the other two players continue ahead. You max out the total available time at 30:00 though, so once the player on anomaly duty hits the cap, they catch up and then everyone goes to end together.
That didn’t work well with the first group I played with. We tried three attempts and the time we “gained” never offset how the two of us that went ahead had our progress slowed by our lack of firepower.
When I did it with two other people (via the guided game queue), we didn’t try any respawning anomaly hijinks, we just all stayed together and worked as a team—the slow is smooth and smooth is fast approach. Finished with time to spare.
This week’s has a similar area, where someone can hang back and keep shooting respawning anomalies for a while while the others proceed. I did it with some randos for my Warlock and it just took two attempts, and the anomaly trick was helpful.
But since I didn’t know where that trick was last night, I tried again last night for my Titan our group just all stuck together, and it did not go well. Didn’t even make it to the boss on either of our attempts.
So maybe the anomaly trick is the way to go this week, that might be what we try tonight.
