    This event was it made to where you need like 7 or more players to kill one thing? I went on my archer, and was trying to kill most of the stuff like pirates, dark wolves etc I was doing no damage what so ever. Now I see why some are calling this a tamers event most of everything is way to powerful to kill.
    What kinda character are you going on, and are you doing any damage?
     
  2. Same ol' hash slung onto our tray:

    Dozens of supporting monsters that are utterly worthless to kill, and the one uber monster that has the nifty loot that takes a mob to take down.

    Same ol' scat, different patch.

    This is not a tamers event. I just went with my bard and soloed many vanguards and the spawn around it. I died a couple of times but not as many times as I have with my tamer. Some creatures cannot be killed with any template. I think its a bug. You can hit them with an archer and not do any damage but they do not do damage to you.
    And the shadow elementals cannot be killed with a pet.
    I had more trouble with wisp and liches than with the vanguards. I provo a wisp on the vanguard and dico the vanguard and the wisp pretty much does the job alone with a few mind blast.
    I also went with my archer and did ok. I use the michief maker and it does good damage on most creatures there.

    So far I´ve played my archer in this event and I´ve only done Cove so far. Everything took damage.

    Although I have seen some posts about a bug that the pirates takes no damage or something like that...

    I killed Dark Wolves easy in Cove. Haven´t tried them in any other city so far...

    Hun I was talking about the worthless supporting monsters, not the one uber monster. If I wanted to kill the uber monster I would go on my tamer with a bunch of peeps. ( not the marshmellow ones). :p . If I was even hitting the uber monster I should do some damage to hit even if it takes me hours to kill it, but I'm not even doing any damage to the worthless supporting monsters like the pirates, dark wolves etc. I'm not even seeing no numbers above showing me how much damage.

    I'm having my best luck on my peacing archer. I use the undead / demon lute. I use a M. Maker, it seems to do well on most stuff. I know the restless souls I cant kill in town. I have found if I drag them to the dock out of town protection then I Make short work of them. I enjoy Cove far more than Serpents Hold. That place is a death trap waiting to happen. :)

    With cove ..what other cities are being invaded at this time..i guess it started in cove but how and were as it spread too...tx THP
     
  10. Why is it I cannot attack the priates or restless souls? And what is this stuff of them getting on roof tops in NJ and you cannot get up there, had this lich casting on me while he is on the roof of the Inn, and I could not get up to him, had to prov a wisp on it, and while he was trying to get the wisp at ground level I was casting mind blast at it. But had to stand off a bit to do that.

    I think that would make it 12 times a day. 2 rl hours = 1 uo day.
    op...My archer does well with M. Maker. Cold damage for Vanguards perhaps?

    I am doing pretty well with my chiv warrior. A good cleaver, enemy of one, mana leech and bleed attack. Although hitting the Vanguard can take a while I got loot rights many times. Parry is very helpful if you are using a melee weapon.
    My chiv archer is also doing very well.

    Pirates, restless souls at least are bugged.

    So if you're literally doing NO damage on things? That's why.

    They should also not be able to damage you.

    I have been able to kill a few restless souls i am not sure what the conditions are you need to make it happen but seems like after they have spawned for a while they can damage you and you can damage them but mostly i just disarm my bow so i dont waste ammmo then wait for a new target and let the soul follow me around and after a while they can be killed
    could be that they can be damaged after another wave spawns this was in serp hold

    You can also go get a clock off a tinker if you don't have the holiday timepiece. I have one in my house and carry one in my backpack too.

    Mages are even worse for this event without other people around. Cant damage shadow elementals and have to deal with inturrupts and deal less damage than other templates.

    I have been able to solo vanguard on my pally, pure pally template, ledge swords/parry/tact, using a Blade Of Righteous, with EO1, and Divine, Consecrate, doing up to 90 shown damage, takes about 15 hits.

    The Life Leech and HP buffs easily keep you alive (I mean nearly 90 LL, come on...:)

    If you really ant to kill the Pirates and Revs, simply lure them en masse out of the guard zone:)

    As they dont damage and have no attack, why bother, treat them a loving disciples headlessly following you on your brave quest to cleanse the cities.

    This event sucks big time for several reasons:

    >> I think it is ok if an event requires a group of fighters (although I don't like that very much). But basically this is mostly a tamer event. Mages can't use most of their spells in town. Melee fighters have to team up with at least 5 other fighters.

    >> You can fight for hours in the event until you finally manage to kill a Vanguard. The loot is a worthless shield and a worthless sword. Most people rather fight peerless, as it is a hundred times more fun and rewarding than fighting those Vanguards (Exception again: Tamers, who go for the Warhorses).

    >> What about those Restless Souls? They attack you, sometimes you can attack them, but neither they do damage, nor you can damage them. On the one hand, this seems like an annoying bug. On the other hand: One less worthless monster causing trouble.

    >> In some locations, healers are not available or do not function. For example in Nujel'm: If you die there with no other player around, you are doomed. No healer (I actually found one, but he didn't resurrect), no Moongate. Body with equipment decayed. Also, the healer in Cove didn't work yesterday.

    >> Recalling into some of the vanguard spawn location causes techical issues: My character froze completely. It was not lag, as I could see other players and creatures moving around me. I could not cast spells, I could not walk, I could not dismount or use things in my backpack. A monster finally attacked me and I could do nothing but watch it beat me up until I died. After restarting the client, I was able to move again. Very funny, if that happens to you in Nujel'm during off-peak hours...

    >> Some monsters (Liches) loot items from your corpse and then vanish. Very motivating!

    So, what's the object of this event? Fighting the same monsters over and over again? Monsters you haven't even the slightest chance soloing even with a very skilled character? Why should anyone go to such an invasion, rather than fighting monsters in a dungeon? I guess the only people being motivated to go there are tamers.

    Whoever thought out this event, lacks of ideas and fantasy.
    :lame:

    the healers are a strange thing sometimes - sometimes they simply ignore ypur ghost at all. Sometimes it helps, to encounter them more than one time, sometimes not. Found such an healer yesterday on Siege Nujel'm as well.

    Anyway about Nujel'ms gate I can only say: Study the places, before you fight. Nujel'm has a moongate, in the North. It is out direction only (why?), but enough for getting a resurrection.

  22. This is by no means a Tamer only event. I've used my archer plenty of times, and I had my meleer all alone in Nujelm yesterday, soloing the Vanguards. I didn't need to team up with 5 other anything, and it didn't take hours to take down a Vanguard either. Maybe you should talk to others on your shard that can solo them and see what they're doing differently than you. Check out their gear and weapons and see what the differences there are.

    Simply pull them out of the guard zone and you can kill them. If you're in Cove, the docks are not in the guard zone and they can be killed there easily.

    It does suck not having a healer when you die. I agree that Nujelm should have a healer. On the other hand, this would be a perfect reason to go and start working Sacrifice.

    Sounds to me like you hit a lag spike.

    I agree. This was supposed to have been fixed quite some time ago, yet it appears they didn't turn off monster looting as they'd told us in the past they would do.

    You kill the bosses and collect the swords and shields. My guess is they're part of the next turn in. As far as the soloing part, as I've already suggested, talk to people on your shard that are soloing them. I've done it myself, and know several others that have done so as well. They're really not that tough as long as you stay on your toes.


    This is just a defeatist attitude. :wall:

    "OH NO! I can't kill them all by myself on the template that I wanna play so it's all the Devs fault, the big stupidheads!" ;)

    I have fought at the invasion with archer, bard, tamer and a pally and have gotten looting rights every time. My tamer dies more often than any of the other chars i take that and can't even count how often the pet died.

    As for the spawn, the liches and wisps are what are kicking my butt.

    All in all I am glad it isn't a spawn that one person can go and take on. The smallest group I was with is when me and 2 strangers met in the field of battle and we combined forces and pushed back the invasion.. Good time was had by all.

    The only thing I am not able to solo (non-blackrock infected spawn only) on my Bushido Swordsman are the Daemon Berserkers (and even those I probably could solo... it'd just take a long time and I'd likely die at least once or twice in the process).
    The Vanguard Controllers only get really difficult because of all the side-spawn they bring with them. When they don't have the supporting spawn, just joust them if you're a meleer or keep distance if you've got a ranged attack.
    Most of the Pirates and Restless Souls are bugged, and cannot deal nor receive any damage. The Daemons & Liches are easily soloable. The Dark Wolves, Restless Souls, and Pirates that you can actually deal damage to are cake.

    Daemon Berserkers are really a group-needed type spawn (well, they should be - those who are soloing are either taking a very long time and dying, or are using an exploit that makes it so they can attack the Berserkers without them being able to retaliate [psst - devs: tele-swat would be a nice ability for the berserkers to counteract situations when berserkers are taking damage but are failing to swing for more than a few seconds]). Greater Dragons tanking, with meleers taking a couple steps back when they get hit and everybody else just keeping their distance is what seems to work best from the fights I've seen so far (much better than the meleers jousting while others attack at a range tactic that I saw last time the Daemon Berserkers showed up). A group of 3 would be plenty to take down a berserker without too much trouble - just make sure you remember to use power/vanquishing/mystic weapons, and don't be afraid to back off for a while if you take damage.

    up to this particular portion of the event, I have done fine....as of this newest phase, I havent gotten looting rights, or one turn in object. I have made quite a collection to the britian insurance program. My goal at this point forward is to make damn sure that no one near me gets to tame a steed....why shouldn't I get something for my time? These players are getting a tame they will most likely sell for millions, and all I have been able to do is see how well my monitor plays B&W. I use the same basic techniques as before, but am getting nowhere. I got looting rights 90% of the time in moonglo, magencia, and the britian invasion, what is so different with this particular scenerio? Finally last night I did get to see a chaos shield in a corpse, but due to a z axis problem, it couldn't be looted. In exasperation I finally threw my mouse at my monitor, good thing those have a tempered glass cover on them....it's beginning to **** me off. Don't care if it's just a game, I should be getting something besides nothing for my efforts...:wall:

    Well i for one aint gonna waste time collecting the new shields and swords to end up getting a measly 100 points per at the turn in!!! no thankyou!! one of each for my display and im happy as larry....jeepers 100 points...LOL
     
  28. I'm actually on Pacific. Too bad. I was looking for someone to play the part of Healer for me to make taking down the Vanguards easier and faster. We'd share the loot of course, and could get it pretty fast.

    Oh well. Cie la vis (sp?)

    I'm with Richard on this one. I could manage fairly well in Magincia, and to a reasonable extent in Moonglow, but I'm simply hopeless in this new invasion. What I can do, though, is heal and cure like crazy, so if anyone would like a dedicated backup healer in exchange for one new sword and shield (yes, I collect, heh), I would love to hear from you. I'm on Lake Austin. :)

    I'll even promise witty commentary.
     
  31. Now see, this is exactly what I'm looking for. If I had a dedicated healer to follow me around from city to city, we could wipe out every spawn by the time it was that time for them to respawn again, and make a killing while we're at it.
