It takes ~ 200 people to do TG in ~ 2 hours. With fewer people it takes longer, so advertize your event in Advice chat & Alliance chat for a few hours prior to the raid.
An Example: /advice TG raid on Gil today 2 Feb, 11 AM PST, 2 PM EST, 20:00 CET. Meet in Hagall A full clear of TG yeilds ~ 12K Feathers to each member plus some nice drops.

Each group should have 1 healer and 1 shammy. It's very important that the pulls in TG are very controlled. You need a designated puller and NO ONE is allowed to get in front of the puller. This is how raids get wiped. You also need a named Main Assist and all damage dealers assist on the MA. People should make a macro:
/macro MA /assist Gil

Run North from Hagall to Delling Crater then East to the zone wall, then north to the entrance. Once inside allow a couple minutes for all to rebuff. Then head west into the Ice Skel tunnel which curves south. Go thru the Dragon's beak and at the dragons tail jump down to the east. Clear mobs to the tunnel and follow it East & SE to the big room. Here we find our first bosses. We kill the first Bird boss Hurika. All Melee must stack on the MA and puller pulls to us. Ignore the minions and melt down the boss. Then we clear some skelly trash and pull the Big Skel, Issorden. Now it's time for the second Bird boss, Torst. Again all Melee must stack on the MA, The puller climbs up the glacier and pulls Torst down to the main floor. Then we head north to another tunnel at the end we find Fornfrusenen, All on Frorfru, ignore the shards. After killing her we retrace our steps to the Dragon room where we clear to the south, then west, then north and then into a tunnel to the west.

We follow this tunnel to the south and then go east. Here we will kill Hord, then Ozur. Rez the dead and we head further east, at the fork we clear South and Kill Otrygg, then north where we find Vagn & Nokkvi. Try to keep them seperated and kill Vagn first, then Nokkvi. Rez and rebuff and we go back west to the main tunnel We go south to the big room where we encounter Icelord Agmundr. We tank & Spank but avoid the staves he summons. Rez, rebuff and clear to the south of the big room where we enter a tunnel to the east to kill the Jailer Vifil. Now we go back to the big room and clear north along the east side to another tunnel to the east where we find Kvasir. Then we continue east. At the T we turn west and then south to kill Hakr, then back to the T where we go east then North where we find Skuf & Steinvor. Try to keep them seperated and kill Skuf then Steiner. Rez & rebuff then south to Xroad, then east to Suttung & Hjalmar. Suttung first then Hjalmar. Next come the area where we see the most raids get wipped. The King, Queen and 2 elder Councils are close together. Keep the raid well back from them and have the puller bring Guthlac and Birghir back away from the King & Queen. Kill Guthlac and then Birghir. Rez & rebuff, purge rez sickness, and pull King Tuscar. After we kill the king we enter the throne room and kill Queen Kula.

Gratz! It's time to do the random and distribute the loot! I'm assuming the raid leader has been using the loot chest system. You start that by doing '/bg loot chest enable' before we enter the Dungeon. Now the raid leader hops up on the ledge on east side of throne room and does '/bg loot chest spawn'. This drops a chest at his feet and we allow a few minutes for people to look inside.

Now it's time to random for loot! Do a '/random record 1000' and then '/yell'. Allow a couple minutes for all to do '/random 1000'. then '/yell' again and do '/random stop'. Next you do a '/random list' and you get a high to low sorted list of all the randoms between the record and stop! Pick up the chest and spawn it again in the center of the ice circle. Tell all of the raiders to remain outside the circle and come forward one at a time when their name is called. Call out the first name from the top of the list. target that player and do '/bg loot chest grant' to authorize them to remove 1 item. Continue till all items have been selected. Now do '/bg loot chest withdraw' to take the gold as a fee for organizing the raid, It will be 1 or 2 Plat.

I hope you enjoyed this guide and have fun raiding TG!

I see you very well Sai and say Thankee BIG BIG!

Cercei is leading TG today 19:30 CET. Typically, we have 2 TG raids every day, 1 at a time more convenient for EU and 1 at a time more convenient for America. I like to lead on the weekends at a time that works for both America AND EU.

BTW, IMO Cercei is the best TG raid leader ever!

If your PC is laggy in 200+ raids, set effects to None and Names off.

Very well written & thanks Gil!

As mentioned above, might advice players to use /effects none, turn cloaks & names off and look down when experiencing latency issues / LD.
Might anyone know other ways to limit these problems (e.g. I have an high end pc, can't be that)?

Hoping on CET evening runs 20.00 +
Cheers!

If you have a good PC and yet you get LDs in large raids, it MIGHT be your internet connection. The server is in Germany, if you are connecting from America, Asia, or Oceania you have to go thru many hops to the server. Each hop adds a bit of delay and some nodes add a LOT of delay. To see if your connection has problems, I like to use WinMTR (Win Meter) which can be found here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/winmtr/

If WinMTR shows that you have lag due to your pathing, how many hops you have between your PC and the server and if there are any bad nodes in that path. I would recommend using a VPN to eliminate most of your hops and to bypass any black hole nodes. Most ISPs (*cough* Comcast *cough*) won't do it on the behalf of a few gamers, they are focused on business customers.

Give WTFast a try, they have a free trial so if it doesn't solve your issue you don't pay for it.

Would be cool if a raid leader would do a df/summoners hall run once a while in mid, I havent seen anyone do that yet and some people prlly could still use the encounters.
