    Well considering that I can only stand to do it about an hour or so at a time and I work weekends with absolutely ZERO time to do anything at all in between working eating and sleeping... you are probably 10 miles ahead of me on points... I'm trying to get things done but it's very slow going. Spend most my time cleaning up I think after everyone else killing all the sea serpents, water eles and krakens that are all over in the way.

    I keep getting the parrots & some of the cannons...
    now I'm turning them into the cities, so the treasuries will get bigger...
    just turning in the small ones on my main, so I will have some points later...
    then I might try for the painting, just not sure I want many of those

    I have about 6k doubloons on Origin and about 14k on Sonoma solely from killing spawn around plunder beacons. Got the lame idea last week of trying to do fishing quests again to try to get a 120 fishing PS and after spending way too many hours trying to get 20 spiney lobsters for one order, I'm having a hard time motivating myself to even log in.

    I kind tend to go overboard on stuff like this. I'm sitting between 7 and 8 mil on catskills.

    Not enough options.

    I currently have 8k, which to me is far different from simply "under 1 million". I've only turned in about 35k in Buc's Den.

    The reason is that I'm a GOVERNOR. I won't stab my fellow governors in the back by turning in mythic chests for doubloons.

    On LA, 5 or 6 of the 9 cities are under 50 million, last I checked - one was under 20 million. And, some of the governors have stated that they won't turn their trade deals back on until they hit 50 million in funds, the last time we governors got together.

    My own city (Britain) is over 400 million funds (so won't miss the funds - someone is dropping a few crates there anyway), and New Magincia is capped out a 1 billion (due to someone buying all their characters titles a couple years ago, and getting elected one time to set the trade deal then never doing anything else as governor). The city is without a governor - the only one without an elected governor (though another has failed to accept). So, those are the only two cities that I feel right in being selfish with.

    I have less than 1mil. But I also haven't had time to play. I'm also waiting for better turn-in options.

    :cheerleader:Great replies! I leave the UO High seas in good hands! :cheerleader:

    It took me many hours to get the first 100k for a parrot. I had a captain and we were killing everything to learn the ropes. I figured the < 1M crowd would be the largest. Once you just go from beacon to beacon as fast as possible you build.

    Thats what I did. Parrots for all my toons that I use. Then put into my city coffers. Now I am filling up the pirate with captured Goods.

    :thumbup1:

    Our EM has been following the events and we help provide info about whats coming up at governors meetings. These orcs are controlled by Aliens with Flying ships. We found one that crashed into a mountain. The events have been the EMs version of High Seas. We already tell the citizens to turn in trade crates to the low coffer cities. Minoc was off because It only had 12M. Now it will run for years.

    Go on a ship with them all. We trade a city to someone that wants a specific one. 10M gold in the treasury per mythic is something to celebrate not bicker over.

    Turn them in!

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I am having a lot of fun with Rising Tide and am glad to see others are. Invite others rest your cannon finger.

    Just going from beacon to beacon is nearly impossible as the waters a virtually filled with serpents and everything else that blocks your movement... which then I have waste time killing and killing and killing just to get from one beacon to the next because certain people just kill the beacon and leave all this crap behind for the next guy to take care of.

    I've been spending more time ransacking pirate ships and turning in the pirates.
    If I only fought plunderbeacons I would have to balance that by lumberjacking for boards to repair damage and crafting to make all the too-many things needed to fire the cannon.

    Somebody on board has a bane or mage pet that kills those. Mage can cast and drive. My guys are full of the other crates by the end of the day.


    The gargoyle ships have more than enough wood and iron for repairs.

    The crew surrenders or you can leave no witnesses.

    i hate to let out a little...... cheat..... well at least until ive been able to milk it for a while.
    but i guess i could let you guys know, but only you guys and just because i like you guys!
    but dont tell anyone else, k?

    it seems that you can have a couple guys on your boat all partied up and everyone will get a mythical chest when you kill the plunderbeacon.
    so like have a bard playing a mastery for the party just parked in the middle of the ship, couple tamers with fire damage pets, couple archers slinging arrows.
    so in stead of just one mythical chest per beacon you can get like 4 or whatever.

    but you didnt hear it from me!

    and i have enough points to move me comfortably through the even, enough said.

    @MalagAste killing the sea serpents and kraken "left behind" will get you cargoes. I've gotten quite a few Legendary ones just killing the sea creatures.

    Ok guess you can hear it from me then.
    You logon account 1, steer ship locate beacon. Place ship as close as possible to the beacon.
    now login youre 2nd account.
    Cast RC on beacon with account 1 and 2.
    move to other side of beacon, and kill orc crew with RCs.
    Now position ship so u can shoot the lighthouse.
    account 1 shoot lighthouse with 1 shot from cannon.
    account 2 shoot lighthouse with 1 shot from cannon.
    account 3 shoot lighthouse with 1 shot from cannon.
    account 4 shoot lighthouse with 1 shot from cannon.
    account 5 shoot lighthouse with 1 shot from cannon.
    account 6 shoot lighthouse with 1 shot from cannon.
    account 7 shoot lighthouse with 1 shot from cannon.
    account 8 shoot lighthouse with 1 shot from cannon.
    account 9 shoot lighthouse with 1 shot from cannon.
    account 10 shoot lighthouse with 1 shot from cannon.
    And there is you're parrot.
    So getting 10mill points aien't really an archivement if u have tons of accounts, so don't feel special.

    When i locate a beacon it takes roughly 10min, i do it with 6 accounts. so thats 60k points pr beacon.
    Beacons spawns more or less around the same location, so place 3 boats, and u can more or less recall from beacon to beacon.

    Beacons have timers. If not attacked they will despawn, leaving all the water bound critters roaming the area.

    Sometimes it’s not any players leaving spawn to search for the next beacon, it’s the event coding that fills areas w/ spawn because no one was around for the despawned beacon.

    Kyronix stated the 8 top damagers get a crate. In party or out. Take others. We party and run 2 bard songs when we have 2.

    Oh I know I kill them constantly it's just time consuming when I can only stand to play about an hour at a crack as any more than that and my shoulder starts screaming in pain... so when I spend 20 or 30% of that time I'm killing those, not the beacons which is a difference of at LEAST 9k points...

    As for what @Poo said I take 2 tamers and an archer that's all my brain and computer can handle at one time... any more than that and it's just mass death all over... I die plenty as is... The problem @Poo is that the serpents don't actively attack you so my tamers don't auto target on them with the pets guarding as they just are in the way... my archer however can target them and it takes awhile to kill them when there are 6 and 10 on the screen blocking up movement... and run the ship at the same time... Now if I had a way to target the serpents with all kill while being on another character that would be nice but I don't cheat... so it's IMO a waste of time and effort to stop the boat swap to another character tell the pet to kill, swap to another tell the pet to kill and then swap back to the archer and hit them and move the boat.

    May as well just move the boat and hit them with my archer... again takes time... so I can do 2 maybe 3 beakons in that hour... sometimes if I'm REAL lucky I can do 4 but that means I have to be somewhere in which I'm not competing for them with others.

    Yeppers! To the point I have "pretty much" taken a Sabbatical from UO. Not completely. But like 90%. I think it was/is a crappy way to dole out the rewards piecemeal. Especially for a LIMITED TIME EVENT. If it were permanent content, it MIGHT be different. Which leads me to wonder, are they going to do the same thing with the treasure chest/sos content? Or the Halloween event, IF there is one? Just my opinion, of course. But NOT one I am alone in.

    Yeah, but 6 accounts ALSO means having to spend 60 bucks a month in monthly subscriptions....

    The player using multiple accounts might be saving time, but is spending more real money for the monthly subscriptions of all those accounts...

    Sure there are. Some people like the parrot, which takes up a clothing/armor slot. I guess it's OK for role play. Some cannons, one of which was being touted as "the most powerful cannon to hit the high seas" but does exactly the same damage as the others. And there are those AWESOME *cough,cough* TITLES. So no, there aren't any good functional items!

    Next month, we will probably get more useless titles! Like , The professor, Gilligan, The skipper, Doc, Julie, Gopher, or The Cabin Boy.

    Well there we have the bad word again (RMT) to win :)
    Personally i find the event very poorly implemented, its too easy to exploit, and this is exactly what people are doing again :(

    I'm currently at 3.3 mil and have been hitting the beacons fairly heavily. I'd like to stop but I'd like one triton per tamer so I have a long way to go. I saw it posted somewhere that the triton was 1.2 million each so that's a lot of farming. While myself and some friends would love to start adding to city coffers, that won't happen until we get enough doubloons banked (if we can before the event ends)! ;)

    The Triton will be 1.2 million Doubloons ?

    Wow, then MOST players will not be able to get one.... that's an incredibly very high amount of turn ins.... we are talking of really a LOT of crates !!

    Considering that most people can do 2 or at most 3 PlunderBeacons in one full hour of game play, all things included, search, repairs, mining for saltpeter and crafting of ammos etc. etc., we are talking of SOME grind of many many hours if it will be THAT high a requirement....

    Where did the 1.2M doubloons number come from? Has that been verified? If so, how is it that someone (?) knows how much they are going to cost? Considering they are roughly 3 weeks away IF NOT LONGER.

    So how did @Dot_Warner come by this information? I have looked and can't find it anywhere in any OFFICIAL correspondence. Perhaps I missed it. Or was it an April Fools Day joke?

    I was building characters on a new shard when this thing started, and that's still what I'm doing. I don't see a good reason to change course for this, so I have 0 doubloons and I don't care, lol @Keith of Sonoma

    I'll forward them on to Kyronix, as he would have done it to spite me!

    For what it's worth, I have seen , in SEVERAL places,that ARE people quoting/using 1.2M doubloons, AS IF THAT IS A VALID AND REAL NUMBER. So there IS some confusion. But hey, thanks for being smart a**** about it.

    I thought it was fairly obvious in my spoiler post, as well as the follow-ups, that it was April Foolery.

    Apparently, it worked. Someone had to make up for Broadsword dropping the ball...

    I regret nothing!

    From what I know, there has been no mention anywhere of how many doubloons a Triton would cost. Any numbers thrown around are wild guesses with no basis in any facts.
