    the town criers on Legends have been calling for us for a few days now saying we should prepare for battle on the 23rd..... is this in addition to that or is someone confused? (aside from me, that is)

    Nothing for Oceania? I've checked the Oceania EM website and the EM forum here on Stratics and they've been dormant since last year. The town cryers that I could actually find on Oceania had no news.

    I wonder if Oceania's already had their event, given that it's already 1:30 Saturday morning for them.

    Checking:

    Castle British - Queen Dawn's casket still lies in state in the throne room.
    EM Hall - Nicely decorated but no clues there.
    Blackthorn's grave in Fel - Seems undisturbed.
    Former location of Blackthorn's Keep in Trammel - No more keep. No flames. Just assorted stuff floating in the air.
    Gypsy camp by Compassion gate - Passageway to central Ilshenar still blocked.

    Getting ready to check the garg city and Exodus dungeon. Don't know where else to check. The one person I've run into says they haven't seen any news of an event for this weekend.

    Didn't see anything that seemed "new" in Ilshenar. Still can't get into central Ilshenar via the old, normal routes and haven't done the quest to get in there, so I can't tell if there's anything new there.

    or just have it in UTC which is the standard for listing times not specific to a single time zone. I admit I had to look up with EDT was, I assumed it was probably eastern but i've only ever seen it listed as EST (eastern standard time), I didn't know it had a seperate one for when they're in daylight savings time, hell I didn't know WE had a seperate one in PST for our daylight savings time, nobody uses it, always just abbreviated PST.

    Here are a few screen shots from Formosa, Mizuho, and Oceania from within the last two hours or so. (I think Formosa and Mizuho have had the Call to Arms event now. Who knows what's going on with Oceania.)

    Honor moongate is fractured on Formosa and Mizuho. You can get to it but you cannot use it to leave.

    [​IMG]

    Near the Honor gate on Formosa is a strange moongate.

    [​IMG]

    Using this moongate takes you to a campsite near Trinsic. On Formosa, this campsite is populated with NPCs. On Mizuho and Oceania, there are no NPs present and only the sparsest of furnishings.

    [​IMG]

    Clicking the weathered journal on the table at the campsite on Formosa puts a copy in your backpack.

    [​IMG]

    In the room farthest to the east in Exodus Dungeon, there's a hole in the ground on Formosa and Mizuho. There are also blue NPC wandering healers on the bottom level of Exodus Dungeon on these two shards. Nothing else seemed very different on this level, that I noticed anyway. The broken machine and tinker tools were still there and the room to the north of them that someone suspected might have some activity seemed to be unchanged as well. On Formosa, I noticed extra walls as you got closer to the room to the east that were not present on Mizuho or Oceania. EM-placed walls, perhaps?

    [​IMG]

    On Oceania, this room looks like this, however (we caused the corpses):

    [​IMG]

    Also, on all three shards, the normal entrances to central Ilshenar are all still blocked by boulders. The gargoyle city is still destroyed and there is a nexus at the bottom of where the steps used to be, but it wasn't spawning anything. The provisioner NPC selling sifting equipment was still in place.

    Edited to add (2:30 pm Eastern Time): Here's how things are set up in Exodus dungeon currently on Origin, which will get its event this evening. The last room to the west is blocked by a wall and nexus machines at some of the closest crossing corridors are walled off with walls that can be highlighted, tile by tile, so it appears they are only temporary walls. Dupre's camp exists but is unpopulated at this point.

    I've added the text of the event's book to the Library of Sosaria wiki.

    It's an interesting read, though oddly rife with typos (which I've mostly fixed).

    I'm glad you got that added, Martyna. I fear that folks who don't make it to the events this weekend will not have any chance to get the books for themselves, if things go as they often do and you have to actually have one handed to you by an EM or get it from a dispenser that's only up for a few minutes. It's just a book, so I really don't understand why on all shards the EMs can't leave the dispenser out for a few days. Oh well, not my call.

    To all our Oceania players,
    I needed to get this list up as soon as possible. Since I do not have a EM yet on Oceania I was waiting to hear back from my EM team who had time in their schedule to do Oceania. The event will be run on Oceania tomorrow 6/23/2012 at 7pm AEST.

    Enjoy

    Thanks, Mesanna. Looks like Queen Dawn's casket was also removed from the throne room and a few more town cryers were placed.

    Mesanna, I don't want to spoil your event but this is going to be AOS all over again if the items do what I think they do.

    This was a complete disaster on Atlantic. The point where we got back into decimated ver lor reg, crashes were extremely rampant and there were people complaining of loosing 100+ hp and not even on screen with the boss. I'm trying to record but when I open up anything I crash. basically will be taking screen shots of all things said.. and posting them here. And this is the "good" stuff. Thanks EA.. Thanks UO. Thanks for this. Srsly, somebody needs to be fired. Not sure who? But I'm speaking my wallet here, and this is the final straw. not another to you guys til this gets fixed.

    Any chance you can list the rewards? Our grandkids just went home for the evening and it's looking like the other two afternoons and evenings this weekend will also be filled with family activities, so I doubt I'm gonna make it to any shard's event at this rate. Thanks.

    Not sure who or what you're disagreeing with, but my issue is the first reward we ended up getting. It's similar to the have and have nots situation we had after a certain AOS reward.

    Nice to meet you on Cats, btw :).

    The first reward, which everyone gets for just doing damage to Exodus, is a +5 Stat item which, theoretically, extends your stat cap to 260 (I haven't tried it yet myself). The second reward is an RP book you could get by dbl clicking a final event book.

    The equivalent of a +5 stat scroll, but if you were already at the max, it pushes you over it by 5?

    I've been worried about this item since I saw the spoiler from the last patch. If these are only available from this event, its an epic, epic fail and a big middle finger to any players who might be enjoying the sun on the first weekend of summer...

    Yeah, I guess, because of rl commitments my wife and I are unable to participate in the event. an item like that.... I think it's the first time in 15 years she's considered closing her accounts. Me, I am currently laughing, because while a cool reward... to have it at something like this... is an epic level blunder.
