    Atlantic, Vesper, good guys win. They deleted all the town criers from all the populated cities for some reason, so I didn't even know until it was over.

    Thankfully I travel to Skara Brae to do all of my Banking and Stabling.... and there is a crier right near that bank on GL's.... So I heard yesterday Morning that the Bane were actually defeating Cove's forces.... so I rallied as many as I could to the fight.... And took my best tamer to turn back the tides as well I could... And focused on the guards.... and clearing the healers... Then a friend and I moved in to take them by surprise from the tower in the back...

    Although, for some reason, I thought the last invasion on Origin was in Trinsic? But the Town Crier says the above. Trin was likely won by Defenders as well though, I don't see any demons.

    Victory for the Britannian coalition

    Now here's a question. Moonglow is still in Bane hands from the second invasion. If we slay the guards there, is there any way we can reverse this?

    I play Pac, and this is a good question.

    We had a group of four or five people the other day, and we would just wipe the guards out...had them nearly all cleared we thought, including the Lyceum <sp>.

    But no matter how fast we went or hard we tried, it seemed we just could not clear it all the way and recover the town.

    If any Devs are reading this...can you please shed some light on this for us? Or anyone who may have accomplished this feat?

    And Happy Holidays to everyone, as well!!

    :)

    Origin is actually on the 5th wave - Vesper, Skara, Britain, Minoc and most recently Trinsic. To hear the winners and losers say "News" multiple times. You might get a few repeats before you get all the information so keep asking until your sure he has nothing else to report.

    Bane Victories: Vesper and Minoc
    Britannian Victories: Skara, Brit, and Trinsic

    Damn fifth huh? Didn't realize you were two waves ahead already, as such can you point to any reasons why the bane did win those two towns? Was it simply less people defending? Or something else?

    Remember that Origin gets the Publishes between the Test Center and the other shards. So that's why they got more waves; it's been active there for noticeably longer.

    LS Currently winning in Trinsic. no Ophids that i could find. Killed half dozen each of bane, bane drags, and Brit defenders, got nothing. From a soldier of fortune standpoint, there's no fortune there for me, the city can fall.

    saw skeleton dragons, red, but none would target me, even when standing next to one

    The skeletal dragons were probably made by a player, casting Animate Dead on the Bane Dragons.

    As to profit, I've made good money, myself. (Granted, I'd be fighting even in the absence of profit, but I'm always glad to make a profit while fighting evil.)

    The Virtuebane Guards (the skeletal liches/bone demons with demon names) have the new fey slayer katana, on the corpse, and the Bane Chosen, Bane Dragons, and Hell Hounds all have those crystals that add the new Focus property to your weapons.

    If your character is evil, the good guys blockading off the invaded cities have these sashes that give you that new focus property for casting spells, and some DCI.

    must had been their 'new RNG' in action, the weaker guards & hounds, I killed waay more than a dozen, they had the typ trash armor/weaps & 200'ish gold, that was it. I'll give it another try in awhile.

    Europa is about to beat what is I think the 4th Wave;

    Trinsic: Loyalists Win
    Moonglow: Loyalists Win
    Skara Brae: Loyalists Win
    Cove: Almost certainly a Loyalist win again.

    I'm still somewhat convinced that the event actually runs for a set time, and doesn't end when you beat the victory conditions... because it always seems to end somewhere around mid day GMT, despite the constant attentions of the extremely dedicated roleplaying community on our shard. Today in Cove for instance the Bane have took a monstrous beating, and we've been on "Defenders Push Back" for at least 4 hours now, but it's still not over.

    Atlantic crier reports Bane doing well in Vesper, but there's absolutely nothing here.

    If the invasions can happen in Felucca and count as "the" invasion for a given cycle, then they just cut this entire event in half for no good reason.

    Every single attempt to lure Trammies into Fel with some sort of PVE carrot over the last ten years has failed. This isn't going to be the year they suddenly start caring. Even if they can just sit inside the guardzone killing Bane dudes in relative safety, they're just not going to bother and we all know it.

    Conversely the Yew Gaters and champ spawners who do hang out in Fel aren't going to give one bit of a flaming crap about PVM farming spawn to get sashes that are worth 50k or whatever. It's apparently no coincidence that this is the first one on Atlantic that the Bane are winning.

    Is this a bug or just a bad decision?

    Last I checked the Bane were winning, yes. And frankly if Atlantic can't win a Fel invasion then nobody can and you have to wonder what the point is.

    In other words, you killed some of the cannon fodder with a tiny chance of having a crystal to modify a weapon, and didn't fight any of the "boss" monsters that actually have the chance for a rare item. When I was looking for the crystals, I was only getting 2-3 an hour, and that with killing over 100 per hour (probably closer to 200) of the small fry.

    Miss your "EASY" button, much?

    Boss monsterS there's only 1, and no I didn't take my tamer w/ greater dragon, which were the Only ones I saw killing them. I was there several hours as well. I was the one putting all their crap loot & gold on the ground. If I leave for 30mins & came back, those crystals(which I doubt I'll use anyways) seemed to come much faster.
    I wouldn't call it 'easy' either, altho I didn't see many ghosts running around. ~3-4 of each ata time was about my limit - I didn't see any solo players doing more - I saw a necro doing pretty good, and an archer on a beetle doing well.

    I still enjoyed it as a dexer, 3 dragons + spawn all at once was actually kinda fun. It was a lot to keep up with, but not overbearing, and least I'm not being spell-spam'd like other places in the game, just poisoned a lot.

    Found the Ophids... hiding out of town on the NE corner peninsula, they were beefed up from normal. didn't get anything from them either. The red gypsy spawn was on permanent so there was plenty to check, for the elusive moonstone jewelery.

    Waves defeated -
    Trinsic
    Britain
    Vesper
    as as of 11:30 am Eastern this morning,
    Cove

    That's 4 waves, by my count.

    I just wish the %#$%#$%ing dry-looters wouldn't just up and disappear at the end of the wave. I got looted of 20k gold, 500 enhanced aids, and a SC no pen -25 MW repeater with mana leech that I'd planned to imbue for my fisher/pirate hunter chiv-mage, less than 60 seconds before the wave ended.

    As for monster/monsters - I count them plural - especially since I got rushed and killed by three of the stupid things the second I walked through the front gate of Cove this morning. Singular only works if only one spawns at a time.

    wave 4

    * Siege
    * Cove
    * Victory to the defenders :/

    I have defected to the bane (since the brits won't let a summoner/necro fight for them) so I'm a little confused, i logged off around 2 AM, near server down and the bane were ahead (and they had been all day, I was there alone the last few hours killing defenders), did someone log in with a GD right at the end and completely reverse a whole day worth of killing defenders? It seems like killing a lot doesn't matter, only who kills the most right at the end
     
  35. Wave 4 on Atlantic in Fel Vesper just finished. Victory to the defenders.

    (and rsi to me for the last 20 guards in a row dropped nothing)

    3 of the Big Bane guards left in Cove - it's deserted. no sign of the meer or Ophids

    Cove is just not a very good place to fight, imo

    It'd be an awesome place to park ships full of released unicorns! I just didn't have time to do it yesterday. :)
     
  41. Oh I did get drops, just a unusually long run of not getting them towards the end.

    Oceania
    * Skara Brae - bane
    * Cove - bane

    ( I believe there are others but those are the two I know of, with the invasion being over the Christmas holidays its been hard to keep up...but basically Oceania will be given to bane it seems, unless you can fight back control after bane has it)
