    I heard rumors that moonglow is next or has been invaded. Can somebody confirm this?

    So what drops has everyone received form the invasion?

    I have received a bunch of the focus gems and the defiler of virtue katana. Any other drops?

    Vesper has been defended as of this morning.

    Three drops that I've heard about: (1) focusing gems from lesser Bane; (2) the Fey slayer katana from Bane Guardians; and (3) a focusing sash from meer (and maybe ophids).

    Cool thx. Soled a bane guardian with my GD yesterday with no disco. Pretty tough all the way to the end. Draggy only died once.

    That is a good job of keeping it alive. I don't think I am capable of keeping up with the damage given to my dragon and I even use spellweaving to help.

    i think you can get the sash from the meers, ophids, or brit guards.

    As of 4:45 am Eastern the defenders of Cove were winning, but everyone there had to log at the time...

    You all need to get back in there and finish the job as soon as possible in the morning.

    I logged on for a little this morning and fought the Bane for a while. There were still plenty of them in Cove, although it seemed like there were more guards wandering around than last night.

    The town criers (as of about 7:45 am EST) were saying that the defenders were making progress.

    If anyone logs on during the day today, please keep us updated on the status of the fight.

    Thanks!

    p.s: Does anyone know if victories/defeats are linked between Tram and Fel? Last night my miner went to Fel Cove and noticed the invasion was going on there too, but no one was fighting the Bane.

    The Bane were defeated at 11:45 AM Eastern - which really sucked for me, as I'd been dry-looted by a guard, and it despawned with an imbuable weapon I'd looted, 25k gold and 500 enhanced bandages, about 60 seconds prior. I was still dressing and healing when everything just disappeared.

    IIRC, it's the combined effort of the two sides, meaning that you have to work twice as hard on the Trammel side, if no one's doing it on the fel side.

    Ahh, I see. Guess that makes sense.

    Sorry to hear about your misfortune this morning, Basara. I wonder if loot lost that way just disappears from the game or if it might end up in the Cavern of the Discarded...discarded by the Bane Guard on his way back to report failure to Virtuebane.

    Yeah, that really stinks. I mean, when an invasion is thwarted I can understand no new spawn generating and maybe even existing spawn retreating (but can be caught and killed to get your stuff back), but just vanishing? That's just silly.

    Was not able to get online last night. Anything new going on with the invasion. I may go out and kill the defenders this time to get the sashes.

    I think those are regular power crystals, but I am not certain.

    Moonglow has been successfully defended and the bane have been driven out (or just disappeared into thin air, including their corpses) as of a few minutes ago.

    While I was in Moonglow helping to finish off the invasion, I lored a couple of guards to get an idea of what their stats were like. I did two of them and here's what I gleaned from it:

    Hit points seem to be in the 8000-9000 range.

    Their damage is 40/15/15/15/15, with the 40 being physical.

    Their resists all seem to be in the 65-75 range so there's no glaring weakness.

    The barding difficulty was in the 130s. Curiously, with my tamer (peace 89, music 113, no slayer instrument) I never succeeded in peaceing a guard but it never told me I had no chance, so presumably I have a small chance with that skill level.

    ziggy: I was able to disco them at "optimal" ranking (according to the CB of knowledge) with GM disco (90 real), 120 music (110 real) and a demon slayer instrument (they appear to retain the demon slayer vulnerability of the bone daemon from Doom).

    Delbrie,

    Vesper was under invasion yesterday as well...early this morning defenders were making progress. If previous invasions are any guide, I'm guessing this one will be over some time this morning. - hopefully with the defenders successful again!

    Any invasion today? Also heard the some of the meer will drop an equivalent sword as the bane gurds, can anyone confirm? If so what are the mods on it? Thx and wake up Lake Austin!

    I've been fighting for the Bane this whole time, but very few others are. With any luck the Bane can hold one town. Just to mix things up a little and see what unfolds.

    Have you received any loot other than the sash off of the phids/meers? If so what was it and its mods? Thanks
     
  31. Liquid_Ape

    I've gotten nothing but a ton of sashes. I did get a piece of Daemon Bone armor and got all excited and then someone reminded me that it has always spawned on some of the Meer.

    Oh well. I do it for fun and to pseudo-roleplay. My guild, the Ocllo Liberation Front, wants very much for our island to be free from Dawn's so called "rule". If we can help defeat her armies anywhere, we will see it as a victory for Ocllo! Or something like that. Haven't had time to really do anything with it, and haven't made any real RP connections here yet.

    Well IMO, the bane can have Luna. Sorry folks, I started playing in the days where Brit was the center and just cannot get away from that.

    Most of the guards I've lored have a barding difficulty in the 130s and your success rate will also depend on your Music skill level.

    My music skill is just over 113, and in the high 80s/low 90s in disco/peace I was starting to have a non zero (but very low) chance. I know there was a chance because I wasn't getting the "you have no chance" message, but I never succeeded at that level. With 105 disco (92+13) and 113 music I succeed once every 2-3 tries on average. I assume a demon slayer instrument (such as Iolo's lute) would help on the guards as well.

    Delbrie,

    It depends on several factors - your musicanship skill, the type of instrument you're using (normal, exceptional, slayer), and the level of other bard skills on your character. You can plug that stuff in on the Stratics barding calculator (UO Stratics - Bard Difficulty) to get your answer. Pick either Miasma (129.8) or Green Goblin Alchemist [Renowned] (130.8) to simulate the 130 barding difficulty of the Bane Guards.

    For example, with a normal instrument at 100 music and 100 discord, you have roughly a 10% chance to discord a Bane Guard.

    Well, I went several invasions without seeing one - then at Trinsic, fighting parted with 4 other people (so we could use the provo mastery songs - those extra stat points, HP and health regen make a BIG difference), the party got at least 5 defilers in the time I was there.

    Last night the town crier said things were leaning the way of the defenders; early this morning, he said the Bane had the advantage.

    Anything new on that?

    Well there really was not alot of people at the invasion last night. I knid of want to see what happens if the Bane capture a town. I think people are getting a bit tired of the spawn and already have a ton of drops. The devs should introduce new items, turn ins, or take this event to the nex level. I know that I am getting tired of killing guard after guard and for nothing on top of it. I think i will go work disco for a awhile.
