    TC1: Testing all town invasions at 5PM EST

    At 5PM EST we’re going to turn on all the town invasions at once, and allow players to tear into them. We’re looking for specific feedback on time-to-completion, difficulty, loot, and spawning issues.

    Participation in Factions is not required; this portion of the event is PvM in nature.

    If by "allowed" you mean "guards won't come punish you", yep. You may incur sadness and karma loss, however.

    They respawn at the same rate, when in some cases is a minute, in some its quite longer. It really varies depending on what types of NPC it is.

    At the end of an invasion, the minds of all NPCs still alive are freed.

    Notes: Some NPCs are completely immune to the effects of the Shadowlords. Quest givers, towncriers, or any NPC generally considered unique.
     
  7. Another question is their a way to cure them... like letting the moon shift like in... Ultima 5 or is the only way to cure them to kill them??? Or that going to be left a mystery that we have to find out :O
     
  8. Per Jeremy Dalberg's message about the invasion on TS "SL Faction members will note that invading monsters do not automatically aggro until you attempt to fight them."

    OK, Maybe I don't understand Factions well enough yet but what prevents non-guilded charcters from join up with the SL Faction JUST so they can pick and choose what invasion monsters to attack? Or is it that once you attack one they ALL aggro on you?? Someone should test this out!!
