3 of my mates and I (4 total) attempted the Eater of Worlds raid lair for the first time last night. From past Destiny experience and even looking online, just about all raids were possible with this count.
Though, it seems like the raid lair is forcing 6 players in the "reactor" room. The one with the purple water and the platforms. We figured out that we need to jump on each one at a time in a line, but after getting to the 5th- 6th platform, no more will appear. The very first platform will turn red and eventually go down. By doing a bunch of jumping around, we can occasionally get 1 more platform to come up. Regardless, we cannot proceed past this point.
I looked up several guides, and not a single one discussed player count requirements or how to get past this with less than a full party. As well, we have been sure to follow the guides exactly as described.
Is this just a case where we absolutely have to have 6 players? Anyone have experience trying this with fewer players?
