    I wonder if the "mystic" weapons still do extra damage to the Berserkers??

    If so, I will need to find them in my clutter and start imbuing!
     
  3. They are not supposed to be easy. When they get on the regular shards, try mystic or vanquishing weapons... still not easy.

    As I recall these things even with the Mystic weapon took some 30 min to bring down on a good chiv/bushido dexer....

    And they could easily take 75% of her life with one hit.....

    Doesn't matter. EA should make the monsters hard in other ways besides hard to MELEE. They should make the mosters hard for archers and spellcasters as well. Atleast give them some ranged attacks that won't allow one to just stand then and shoot stuff at it while the melee'ers get killed repeatedly

    If i remember correctly, if you used ranged on these in the past events, there was a good chance you would get teleported to the monster and promptly thumped. could have been changed, or I am thinking of some other monsters in the event.

    True that! I'm seriously considering taking swords and parry off and adding Archery & something else. It's a shame.

    I have lots of mystic weapons , but I have already enhanced most of them. If they are going to do that , then they should drop NEW mystic weaps , so we can imbue.

    I think you are right. My memory is hazy, but I think that players were luring the berserkers to the water and killing them with archers from boats. So they were changed to teleport players after that. I had pretty good luck jousting them with my paladin. Time to bring out the mystic weapons again. :thumbup1:

    This was the despise invasion with the Ogre and Titan Generals, not the Orphidian invasion...

    But I get what you're trying to say. Only if they applied something like that to Orphidians

    Nope gjohnson5, the OP is right. I remember the ophidian invasion of Vesper quite well. In the beginning we were whomping them with archers from boats. That lasted about a week before the ophids were able to teleport us to themselves and beat us to death.

    Yes that's what I remember as well, was a real pain when a Berserker spawned on that little island or on one of the bridge landings. if you were trying to kill it to finish the spawn, you would get sucked under the bridge and have no room to joust.

    I guess I don't remember that in the orphidian invasion... However I do remember the where that teleport stuff first started. Right after Reniassance was released they did an event where all despise monsters flooded the outside of Britan. Since Ogres don't cast spells , the devs made it to where if you hit it with a spell you were instantly teleported to the General.

    I guess I liked that event more then any other EA has done since Renaissance allowed me to mine and lumberjack without dealing with gankers.... Then I had to stop mining to kill these monsters that filled the mining and lumberjack areas around Britan.

    Actually AoS Added Malas, so I'm getting my releases confused
