    A couple years back we used to gather at 8pm uk time in umbra to do some peerless or champ spawns. I would like to revive that custom. Anyone interested?

    What's with Alyx Astarsis, Kraken, Myphsar, Ashkan and those whos names i can't remember anymore?

    I know i wont be able to appear every day at the bank. It always depends on my job. But i would try to be there as often as possible.

    Less and less people turned up, I think the last one at umbra was December 08 :(

    It got so just Alyx, Star and myself turned up .. a few times I was the only one there :sad3:

    Ash and Deimos quit. I see Myph and Kraken now and again, but they keep disappearing. Not seen Vix in awhile either.

    Others like Leon, Marcus, Monkey have totally disappeared, haven't heard from them in years :sad4:

    Alyx started a weekly hunt, on tuesdays I think, but from Britain bank to try bring new life to it as its been dead since the invasion. He started to get a good crowd together, but then I think some of the EM events were on tuesdays and the peerless hunts got forgotten :(

    I'd be up for starting the hunts again, they were always fun :thumbup1:

    I never made it to the Umbra peerless hunts "back then", but had great fun at the Tuesday outings last year - and if the boardie peerless group is gonna start hunting again I´ll be happy to join as often as I can :).

    So which day is the best to not interfere with the EM stuff or your guild hunts, Odin? :)

    it's fine if we start with a weekly hunt and see how it turns out. Can always do more days per week. Daily hunts like in 2008 might be too much for now. :)

    *waves to Ayara* :)

    I think most events atm are on wednesdays, thursdays and sundays .. but there have been some random ones too. Others on here probably have a better idea on events then me.

    Guild hunts are thursdays and sundays.

    What days are good for everyone else?

    I've still got a lot of content to catch up on, so I'd be interested in these too... I can make pretty much any day myself if it's 8pm, although obviously the EM events might clash as mentioned...

    That basically leaves the saturday. :)

    From my past experiences the fridays where the least frequented because most went to parties and stuff to relax from a week of hard work / school.

    Shall we postpone this stuff until the football championship is over? Seeing myself i have watched every game so far, even tho i don't care for football. But it's nice to hang out with mates, drink a couple of cool beers etc.

    Well, I can't wait for the football to be over, so I'll be up for early ones at least! :p I've not seen any of the Mondain's Legacy Dungeons yet, so I'd like to wander about those, and I'd like to kill Dreadhorn at least once, and... basically anything but bloody football!

    Alyx gave me my first taste of peerless a few years back, and I know he's been keen to get these set up again, so I would happily join in to make up the numbers.

    I'm in the US at the moment, but will try and get on, Saturdays and Sundays be easier for that I guess. Other days are fine, but can only do when I'm working from home.

    Cheers

    Yes i do remember you. Tried to start with it this friday, Odin offered pregathering keys for dreadhorn but now that new live event seems to go live this week. That's why this weeks peerless seems to have been cancelled. :sad3:

    edit:
    Seems the new live event has been postponed for another week so we might be doing some dreadhorns. I'll be there at the umbra bank at 8pm uk time (21:00cet).

    Yay! :danceb:

    A bit of info/advice for anyone who hasn't been into Twisted Weald, Adol :)

    You need to get through the desert to collect keys and to get to the altar to place them, but you can't run through it. Theres usually lots of nasties in the desert, dire wolves and changelings (including the occasional para), and the dryads can make it a problem to get through - I normally run through groups of nasties to get to where I want to be, with a pre-cast invis, but I wouldn't advise this here. If a dryad is aggro'd onto something, they use their 'gaze' attack and peace everything in the area and if you have a group of changelings on your arse, or a para, that normally means one dead player. I use the honor virtue on myself to get through - follower level gives you enough time, not sure about seeker.

    If your a tamer with a GD, its best to leave it by the sparkles just inside Weald with the pixies, honor yourself, walk through the desert and relog for GD at the swamp entrance - this is what I normally do on my tamer.

    In the swamp area DO NOT walk in any of the pools, they spawn more nasties which don't have any keys. The pool south east of Lady's Sabrix and Lissith is the worst, it spawns Malefic and Virulent, two supercharged versions of Sabrix and Lissith, they cast, poison and mortal strike.

    Also in the swamp spawns Spite, Guile and Irk, three supercharged changelings. Normally we lure Spite and Guile out of the way somewhere as they don't have any keys on them. Irk we need, as it has one of the needed keys.

    Keys we'll need are:
    Thorny Briar (purplish thorn bush, that you can just pick up in the desert)
    Gnaw's Fang (off Gnaw, a supercharged blue dire wolf found in the cave at the end of the desert)
    Blighted Cotton (greenish cotton plant, that you can just pick up in the swamp)
    Sabrix's Eye and Lissith's Silk (off the two lovely Lady spider's mentioned earlier ;))
    Irk's Brain (off Irk surprisingly :lol:)

    I've been to the Weld before, and yes got butchered by the shapeshifters alas... I think I got as far as the northern edge before they overwhelmed me and wouldn't let me have my corpse back!

    However I missed the thread yesterday so I didn't know you were going on a Friday, I assumed it would be a Saturday :( I'll know now for next week, but if anyone fancies weekend hunting too, I'll keep checking this today!

    Iam trying to, THP.

    I can't make it to this weeks hunt. I got a unexpected appointment.

    Maybe you (those who want to help with the group) just hunt the ophs together and work as a team. It wasn't so hard to get stuff done in a group when the peerless board group was active.

    I'd like to come along to this group, the folks here helped me back into the game after a 3 year away stint so I'd like to repay the Karmic debt as it were. I'm not much good of course, but I can whack a few mongbats out of the way ;)

    Trouble is, Friday is pretty rubbish for me to make it.

    Anyone play late nights UK time? Like from 10PM onwards?

    Don't want to set up a competing group, but maybe some people play later becuse of work, or play from the US or somesuch.

    Sooo, any night owls out there?

    Cheers

    Iam not Kas Valentine. That's a different person. I'll try to gather 1 or 2 sets for the Grizzle today. Depends on the RNG (thesis notes drops). For those who havn't done a Grizzle yet, bring mages and archers.

    I'll use the character most suited. Either tamer/disco or mage/weaver or sam/archer. One disco is a must. Tamers should know, that the pet will die often (and the tamer probably too). It always happens in a mixed group of strangers.

    Gathering point will be britain bank (weaver circle). 8pm UK time (21:00h CET)

    How much Discord is needed? I could bring my Treasure Hunter if it's not too much, otherwise a pet-less mage/tamer maybe? I want to start seeing some of these events at last!

    Argh!!

    Gonna be 30 mins late by the look of it. I'm a dab hand at getting keys for any and all the peerless though, so if anyone has a suggestion for where they would like to go next time Ill grab them for the group.

    We did 3 Grizzles. Bee got a Tombstone on the second run and i got a Mare on the last run. No casualties this time. The Team did well considering some never killed Grizzle before.

    Oz: the easiest to collect is Melisande as you can keep the quest open (while completed) until the hunt starts.

    What about next week (09.july 2010)? Want to collect for jabba (Parox)? How about a couple Doom Gauntlet runs? I'd donate the skulls for the crew. So either Jabba and Meli or Doom Gauntlet.

    I have a bard with 120 provo / disco there and a chivalry tamer. If someone else brings a bard i'll stick to the tamer. Otherwise i use the bard. If iam on the bard all we need is damage dealers, so pick whatever character you have.

    I'd hope to make tonight's then; I'd have done yesterday's too, but alas the family turned up unexpectedly, and I was out all day... Hopefully I'll see Jabba in a few weeks when it's his turn again!

    Another good round of hunts, did three Dreads and one Mel. Was a bit of a massacre really since we had quite a few with us!

    Only two deaths and they were mine *again* Although both were spikes while dropping so I ain't counting them.

    Trying to tie the board name with char names, so here's mine:

    Ozimandius (Sampire Dexxer)
    Scaramanaga (Necro SW Mage)
    Bob the Banjo (Provo Tamer)
    Ballista (ABC Necro Archer)
    Fisher King (Disco Provo Thunter)
    Iron Balls (Crafter)

    Gonna be away for a bit, going back to the UK for my birthday, the daily SW circle at Brit Bank at 19:00 UK time seems a good place to meet to set up for the hunt at 20:00 though...

    Cheers

    Adol = Aron Swordmaster, who is currently a Tamer/Mage.... I got rubbish every time, not even a Dread Head... but it was good to see both Melisande and Dread Horn, even if buried under huge dragons! (The hand in for Dread was 3 strongboxes, also full of rubbish, although I did keep the purple parrot in for Acantha, is she returns to the game)
