    Since Sonoma and Chessy are my main shards, I am posting details about the next Global Event so we can be prepared accordingly. If you want to be surprised at the event don't read the rest of this post. Some of the details are already on other forums so the info contained within might be old news to some.

    This event is held in the Tokuno Islands. Twenty (20) serpents spawn in the waters surrounding the islands. If we tackle all the serpents at once, you can expect the event to last approximately 4-5 hours. The markers for the serpents have a 4 week life span so it appears as though we can complete the event over the course of 4 weeks. The downside is that the serpents may roam making them more difficult to find.

    With that said, we need someone with a sextant (or UOAM or the EC) in order to travel to the given coordinates and we need Tokuno boats.

    On all shards where I've attended the event, the serpents are lured from the sea to the closest land mass. The shoreline of the Tokuno Islands is not conducive to melee and also not mage friendly (target not seen).

    The best strategy I've seen is sandwiching the serpent between land and a High Seas boat equipped with a cannon. Archers & Tamers attack from shore while cannon balls are fired at the serpent from the boat. Side note: One archer told me he was using a Reptile Slayer and doing 225 points of damage per shot!

    There are other strategies but I haven't seen any other tactics used yet.

    Good luck Chessy! See you at the event!
