    Ok...Maybe I'll skew the poll/data by ranking mine first, but here goes with brief reasons:

    1. Brit - fun to see so many people on the tram side
    2. Trinsic - my hometown, should be higher but sometimes hard to find the captains
    3. Moonglow - good use of fences and gates :thumbup:
    4. Minoc - Fun spots to work alone or with others
    5. New Magincia - reminds me of the good things to be found in the stables
    6. Vesper - nice place to find shops I had forgotten about, and the possible 'out of guard zone' field spells
    7. Yew - love open spaces, startin to hate BIG OPEN SPACES
    8. Jehlom - not liking the island spawn at their peak spawn levels
    9. Skara - least favorit...feels like a house with too many hallways and corners and not enough space
    10. Minoc? or did I forget about Minoc?

    I realize others will say *any Fel city* etc, but just being more general with the poll :)

    My favs are Glow, Minoc and Skara.

    The other cities have a too wide spread spawn.

    Vesper is just a nightmare trying to navigate to find spawn.

    In my opinion, Vesper and Yew are crap. The rest are great (tram or fel). Of course, if the spawn is Demon oriented - any location sucks.

    Agree, Vesper is a pain with the bridges. Seems like the vast majority of the spawn is on the coast near the south bridge.

    I don't have a favorite location, but it is nice to get back into the cities again.

    Favorite is Moonglow followed by Skara, they are small and can be easily approached from moongates if my spots are camped.
    Least favorite is Yew... Tamer with a GD, that's a lot of walking.

    We had an archer in yew the other night. It hopped from the bottom cabbage patch farm thing to beside the bank before being taken back to the spawn point to hop some more.

    Oh and favourite would be new mag. Fel or Trammel I don't mind. I like a good fight in the cities, livens things up a bit.

    I don't have a favourite really, but l don't enjoy Yew much. I seem to run around for miles and only find anything when everyone else has it almost dead.

    1. New Magincia - Just because it's central.... you can use things to your advantage like player housing.... The stalls... etc... Works pretty well, though I'm sure if you live there it sucks.
    2. Moonglow - Spawn not all spread out... can use the fence to your advantage sometimes.
    3. Skara Brae - Probably because there is a healer near the Beacon. Not too bad here.
    4. Toss up between Minoc and Jhelom... Minoc has good and bad points... sometimes the "hilly" nature of the town can be advantageous or deadly, Jhelom can be annoying if everything spawns on the smaller southern island... VERY dangerous but the healer isn't too far from the porter.... and you can use boats to your advantage.
    5. Yew - I know several others complain about how spread out it is...... but the sheep pens are an advantage... the coast is and advantage... and it's my city, I know it VERY well.
    6. Britain - What a pain... spread out... just annoying especially if crap spawns where you can't get at it.
    7. Trinsic - by far one of the WORST locations. Annoyingly spread out... hard to get from one area to another quickly, crap is always spawning in hard to get to areas ..... though thankfully haven't seen any spawning inside the walls as has happened in years past.
    8. Finally Vesper... The most ill conceived town of all. Stupid bridges get stuck on all the time... and 90% of the crap spawns on the mainland by the Inn all stuck together in a BIG nightmare... and when it's demons...... pity the first fool across the bridge... Fey aren't good here either....
    All in all though I am LOVING the invasions! Having a blast good to see so many folk busily defending the towns. And I love the turn ins! I've both kept some of the mini drops either because they were good or because I like the concept of Minax's Crest being on stuff. Loving it. Love the new art for the Epaulettes.... wish they were visible in-game... on my char but that's ok... totally love that I've left that horrible robe behind.

    I've got runebooks for each invasion town marked just for my tamer. This lets me hop around town quickly to find spawns. You just have to be careful not to mark in spots that you can get trapped. Rooftops are my favorite mark spots if you can find them.

    Yew makes me, wanna skip a town.
    So much running around, and it takes ages to complete.

    1. Skara Brae - Nice and small, less running around, lots of spots for boats, easy access to bank,healer and moongate. Gotta be careful sometimes as not a lot of room between captains. ;)
    2. Moonglow - Fairly small, love the fences as an archer!
    3. New Magincia - Fairly small, not a lot of running around.
    4. Minoc - Spawn laid out pretty well, medium amount of running around.
    5. Jhelom - Would be 3 if not for the fact that on Chessy nobody ever wants to or knows how to go into the teleporter so all the captains eventually end up in that one small area.
    6. Trinsic - Lots of running around, but lots of area to escape and the park has some interesting trap zones. Beacon close to moongate.
    7. Yew - Too much running around though having heartwood as an escape route is kinda handy when you can't invis or hide.
    8. Britain - Way too spread out, by the time I find a captain it's usually dead or almost dead. LONG runs to healer or another player sometimes as a ghost. Highest number of beacon campers it seems.
    9. Vesper - Gotta rank this one last too. Soooo much running around and a lot of people start avoiding the inn area when it gets congested and... camp the beacon.
    My thoughts!
