    Fun invasion so far.

    Good fighting.

    I haven't seen any particularly good rewards yet, though.

    :(

    But the fighting's been fun. It's confusing as all Hell (as soon as you think you've got it beat, a Crimson Dragon spawns, you drop it and you think you've won, then another city starts up, etc.), but for the moment at least, that confusion actually enhances the experience, adding to the sense of danger and uncertainty the characters must be feeling.

    Has anyone else seen the special rewards ("Army members drop special weapons and spellbooks with properties based on their rank") yet?

    Fun either way.

    Nice touch to have escort missions to Jhelom, out of invasion cities. Like refugees.

  2. The talisman and spellbook are awesome items. You'll be happy when you get them. I haven't seen any invasion stuff yet though. I popped around from town to town and didn't see anything going on for Pacific yet.

    The Kaldun thing isn't bad except for one small thing. It's set up in a way that allows players to farm the gossamer needed to make the webs. Yea I can understand you need 10, but I'm watching folks sit there and just farm it looting much more than they need for their own use.....Kinda sucks for those not wanting to just stand there nad spam wither...

    Makes you wonder why other games have a system that says "You can't hold any more of those (quest) objects"...

    Since we have 3 weeks or so I'm just going to wait a week or more and hope everyone gets their quests out of the way so I'll be able to do mine next week or the week after.

    Oh well. I'll live. I hate fighting with gangs of people for limited spawn points... If I miss out on Halloween Rewards so be it.

    More people, more fun. Try it and you will see. BTW you will not figth over spawn points in invaded city, you will be glad that there are other players, keeping monsters in check around you.

    BTW, it appears that Sicarii's dungeon is an anti-virtue dungeon - One of my guildmates got an ankh necklace killing the drones.

    the devs are blowing my mind these days.


    Excellent content.


    im pretty sure the skele lich drops are skill based...not sure. but spell casters seem to always get the books and melee ppl seem to alwas get the tali. what about ppl who dont have thoes skills?


    have any pure mages gotton the tali?

    I highly doubt any shard will manage to destroy all the totems in the first day. Frankly, I'm curious to see which shards, if any, manage to destroy them all by the time the event is turned off.

    Also the totems being destroyed only ends the spawn in the graveyards, it doesn't affect Sicarii. As long as you got your parchment, you can finish the quest even if all the graveyards have stopped spawning. So make sure to at least get the parchment from the Lich on all the characters you intend to do the quest with.

    As for the Gossamer, you can get it from the spiders that spawn from the cocoons as well, not just Sicarii. And Felucca is significantly less camped than Trammel. So that's also an option, if you are willing to take the risk.
     
  14. Many PPl, few ppl, solo, with bow undead slayer, without, I CAN'T DROP!!!!!
     
  15. I got 2 books and 2 talis all on a single archer. It's definitely not skill based, it just takes time and patience.

    Other than RP, is there some specific incentive to "beat" the Halloween event? Indeed, isn't there an incentive to not beat the event? As a player, I'm selfishly worried we'll finish before Galen can get a Conjurer's Ticket. (I've only been able to get a single venom sac so far anyway, so Galen the character can't help much.) At the very least, isn't the potential for a very limited event an incentive to ignore the Shadowlord invasion for awhile? (Which, for the moment, seems to lack a specific reward for participation.)

    Again, I'm not saying RP isn't enough reason to beat the Halloween event, or beat back the Shadowlord invasion....I'm just hoping that's not the only reason.
