    So far, I know of CRUS and TnT2.

    Add the name of your non-faction guild here, if you're interested in participating!

    Does killing you people relentlessly mean Bo is included in this war? If so than you can include Bo. But if you expect Bo to follow your stupid rules, than you obviously dont know The Bo. :loser:

    What stupid rules??? The only rule that we have come up with ( and this only applies to us ) is no tamers shall be fielded from our side.

    Hm i'm busy as always but I'd like V to contribute some.

    We will try for this weekend, hopefully spread the word so our secondaries will be out of factions by then.

    Don't feed the trolls. It only encourages them to come back for more.

    We could also look into putting together a temporary guild or alliance for those small guilds or single guildless players that have an interest in this but don't want to go alone.

    Good idea! That should be easy enough to implement.

    Also looking to hear from JSV, C8V, TDO, Sprago's guild [AED]?, QUE? and anyone else interested...

    Is there an end game to the war, or is it open and unending?
    Are solo players welcomed, or is it best to join or create a crew?
    Any other "honor" rules?
    Any other pertinent info?

    Stick to the topic of this thread and serious trolls will be dealt with. *folds arms*

    I think I sent the first invite and didn't really want to set an end to it, but we are required to set the values. I set it for 1000 kills/10,000 hours. If it turns out to be really really fun, we'll definitely send another invite. After the disaster that is currently called "Factions", we're just looking to get back to having some fun.

    -Solo players are welcomed, but will require a guild tag so that we can send an invite. It may be overwhelming for a solo player at times, so my suggestion would be to create a guild tag for soloer's.

    -Rules are self imposed, but Bruin has written up a fair set of guidelines for his crew, which can be found on the Gilfane public forums or perhaps he would be kind enough to post them here. :) [TnT will be utilizing these guidelines, as well]

    I am intrigued... Is there any story line? Who is good and who is evil? Have any of the major players considered having some one do some write ups of the battles?

    I could even "grease the wheels" if you folks can come up with some qualified folk to be "official" Stratics reporters. Just a thought.

    I believe that CRUS, otherwise known as CWS and GIL are going to use this as an opportunity for some roleplay stories, etc... and, well, you know TnT, we're not much into that, but we'll happily play the bad guys and will not hinder the roleplaying efforts of others. If someone from TnT would like to participate in the written storyline, I'm sure they will hop in! Maybe I can summon Kenji! hehe

    Here is what I posted in another thread about the rules.


    The rules:

    The only enforced rule:

    No pets - tamers will not be allowed to join CRUS unless they stone their taming skills and promise not to actively use them in combat.

    The unwritten rules (These will not be ‘enforced’ per se, but all members are always required to adhere to them):

    Light looting – be courteous to those that are courteous to us - loot to disarm, loot to retrieve items. To discourage the use of high end items, such as cursed artifacts, minor artifacts and the like, these may be looted. If we find our enemies are constantly drylooting us, we may reciprocate by looting all combat related items.

    No rez-killing - except to prevent an enemy from re-joining combat.

    Keep in mind these are unofficial self-imposed rules. I'm not going to require them of any guild that we war, it is up to their discretion what they do. I will enforce these rules amongst our members.

    But if we get a guild that wars us, and all of a sudden we're patrolling and 10 stealth tamers appear, bola us, and all kill, there is a high likely-hood we will withdraw from war with them.

    Storylines -

    At the moment there are no specific story lines, just a general "The White Council guilds are going to war with its enemies" I personally will be writing up some story lines just to foster combat in specific areas - so people will know where to look for a fight. I will be writing up stories of the battle (win or lose) time permitting. I will be asking guildmates to write up both battle stories and rp'd story lines. I would encourage any people taking part to also write up some stories.

    Hell, even Kelmo can write up a story about how he's tired of hearing the battle cry's from outside his pub walls as a neutral! ;)


    There are no real sides to the war, well I guess maybe the sides of generic "good" (us) and "evil" (them). Anyone is welcome to join in, however you would obviously have to belong to or start a guild because you can't war individuals. I suppose we can start allying along the side of good and evil, but at the moment I just want to fight! =)

    How come no tamers with lesser animals? Such as frenzieds. I always thought the pack instinct aspect of the game was pretty cool. They implemented it about the time I left and it allowed for tamers to play in PvP with mediocore pets and not be overpowered.

    I think its the slippery slope, I actually hate that we have uber tames......but also those uber tames are required for high end farming

    There are some rp stories on the Gilfane forum. I will try to repost them here as some Gilfane will not come here to post.

    They are in the public forum on Gilfane

    You are so wrong here. I can high end farm on my dexxor and kill the stuff faster than you can on your tamer. You are just lazy, and like to feel safe farming that high end stuff while hidden and the tame does the work for you.

    Quick question, can you farm faster wearing max luck?? Yes, that is assuming that luck even works...
    I do agree with you that a Bushy Chiv or Sampire is the fasest way to pvm, but to do that you usually give up luck...

    The Sinners and Saints will be participating if you want us to. i have pulled the guild out of the alliance, slimmed it down to just the people waring and we should be ready to go just hope we get some more people.
     
  32. Hugibear

    Well I have over 2000 luck (if not more) when i kill something. Not max luck but hey it is pretty close. So to answer your first question yes. You need to stop hating, and realize how things work.

    Thats if luck actually works. I find it does little for loot. Seems hit and miss.

    Now as far as good and bad. CRUS will be the good guys, and I guess we will need to RP the rest into position. TnT2 will clearly been the evil misfits!
     
  34. Calyip

    How could a dexer use 2000+ luck when killing high end mobs?

    The artifact tunic thing is 200
    The necklace is 200
    jester hat is 150
    arms, legs, gloves are 420 when added together
    Jewelry is 200

    So that's about 1200...plus a shield could be worn for an extra 40, and I heard there is a statue that gives some luck per year maxing at 700, so if one used a weapon with 140 I can fathom getting over 2000. But my question is how could someone use all of these pieces with the luck, and still have enough resist to not die in a single shot? I tried to kill dark wisps and I had 70 fire resist and got hit with a flame strike for mid 20s every time. I've been told the only mobs that give ok loot here are the new things with the latest expansion and CHAMPS, don't most of those things have 200 eval and stuff that would kill anyone wearing this gear in like.. a spell?
     
  35. Hugibear

    Hugibear Guest

    1000 luck for perfection, 700 statue, 100 chest, 125 gloves, misc other luck pieces and still all 70s. That is over 2000 and I can just about kill anything. Granted I dont have the perfect weapon for doing this so I struggle a bit. But stuff like baracoon is simple, 4-5 minutes tops.

    Thats not even close to max luck. Max luck would be somewhere around 3400, so perhaps thats why youre not getting anything.

    Are you saying max luck on items is 3400 or are you adding the 1000 luck from Honor and statue?

    Sounds good man.....you got there last night about an hour too late to be able to get in on the fun...everything was just wrapping up

    TNT2 had a good showing...we were fortunate to have outnumbered them. Hopefully though more will join their cause and we will be able to have some big field fights

    I counted like 10-12 people fighting last night for a good hour and a bit almost non stop

    A hell of a lot of fun tonight. 3 straight hours of just going at it non stop, no bs househiding, no bs pets, no gankfests, nobody was afraid to die, just good old fashioned field fighting, even though we got our butts handed to us.

    Who would have thought that fighting outside of factions could be soo much fun?

    Was the most pvp fun I have had in a long time.

    I think each side had between 6-8 fighters and it was crazy trying to call targets. I gotta say, ya'll seemed more organized than us, but we are getting better already.
