Title. I like Aetherian Archive. Aesthetically I think it’s the best looking trial. Rockgrove and Halls of Fabrication won’t fit as I only have the option for 10 options lol

    But even in books, the heroes make mistakes, and there isn't always a happy ending.

    SO for nostalgia reasons: it was the first trial I progressed through back in the day, and I remember one day the HM was accidentally activated, and it ended up being a 7 hour run (which became progressively unhinged and hilarious, due to people getting intoxicated out of despair :sweat_smile:). After that run, every mechanic was called out as a 'world shaper', as a tribute to the Serpent fight :smiley: In terms of aesthetics, I really like Aetherian Archive, I wish we had that instance as a player house. In terms of mechanics, I like HOF, Rockgrove and Cloudrest, and on the whole I also like MoL and Sunspire. I'm not too familiar with the last two trials, I think Dreadsail has interesting mechanics, and I also like the aesthetics of SE. Not too fond of some of the fights in vKA, I think they are a bit boring, same with Asylum, though I do like the CWC visuals there. I think the original Craglorn trials were the most fun, and I liked their associated quests and overarching story as well.

    I really like to theme of the trial. It looks and sounds great. Battles are fun too. HoF and SE would be next.

    I like Cloudrest because it doesn't have as many adds to deal with but is more fun than AS.
  • ZOS_Hadeostry
    Greetings,

    After further review we have decided to move this thread to a category we think is more appropriate for this topic, as it's about trials.

    Thank you for your understanding

    Lol, no one likes Kyne's Aegis.

    Maw of Lorhkaj has the best mechanics, so that is my choice.

    Cloudrest
    Cloudrest is a really well made trial. The first that truly made team building a necessity and learning how to move like a school of fish. It's short and not many adds allowing you to reset it and run again with little time expended. I don't do it much anymore as sticker book is complete and no more achievements. I don't dislike sequential trials, it's just that this one was a nice change to the traditional style.

    Cloudrest=Trial version FG1

    Well...1 hour30min is the maximum time which I can spend for the daily.
    I taste several group Trial by the group finger, but I couldn't finish it within 1h30min.

    We're not kids who have plenty of time anymore. :(
    My playing time Mon-Friday UTC13:00-16:00 [PC-NA] CP over2000 now.
    I have [1Tough tank] [1StamSorc-DD] [1Necro-DD] [1Real Healer]
    But, I'm Tank main player. Recently I'm doing Healer.

    The Maw is gorgeous, the drums are intoxicating, and I loved the presentation of the story (NPC singing is usually heavily cringe-inducing for me, but Adara'hai's was quite hauntingly beautiful.) I actually remember getting chills in there back in the day. Perhaps I have since grown far too jaded, but none of the more recent trials have elicited a similar effect.

    On the flip side, my least favourite is Cloudrest. Boring, ugly design, repetitive boss design, too short for a quest that feels epic in any way, and the lack of trash makes it feel like a trivial instance. It just feels pointless to me.
