misses power hour and the BK Wall?
I don't miss power hour, but I do miss the BK wall a little.
i remember running around WBB asking people for a gate and then when that completely crumbled the jhelom fighter pits. i miss those days.
I don't really miss either one.
But I'm odd anyway.
No, you aren't the only one. I miss them both, especially powerhour.
I am not too proud to ask....I remember Power Hour, but what the hell is a BK wall?
BK = Bone Knight
Ok now I understand what BK stands for...but how did the Bk help with gains??
Was it similiar to BR training? ( Black Rock)
We used to go to despise... many dexxies all formed a wall, cross healed and killed bone knights (back when you really didnt want to do it by yourself because there were three or four of them!!) and gain like crazy in warrior skills.
BK Wall = lots of people. Tank got great parry gains (because they were getting hit alot), healers got great healing gains (because they were healing the tank alot), everybody else above 80 weaponskill got great weaponskill gains (because BKs are in a good range, and there's effectively constant spawn, and you're not going to die very often because of all the people), and you'd get good anatomy and tactics gains since you're constantly fighting.
thanks for the history lesson
The BK wall was great. Unfortunately, more often than not some moron would stand in the wrong spot and would stay there even with a dozen people telling them to move back.
Now that I'm working on building up a tamer, this thread REALLY makes me miss power hour.. Would be nice to know I could log in, grind out that first hour and go back to hunting with skill jewels on for the rest of the evening. Heh, a bit off topic, I know... but... it would be cool if they gave Bulls a "charge" ability or something to make it a little more exciting to train... They could probably effectivley eliminate unattended taming macro'ers with a couple lines of code that way to. ;D
Ummm just don't tame bulls...there are other "aggressives" you can tame at that level.
Frenzied Ostards come to mind....
Actually, at the rate I'm killing my tamed dragons and mares, I think that is where I will get most of my gains
