Towns blocked but not invaded.

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Lord GOD(GOD), Nov 1, 2008.

  1. On Atlantic is seems to be the case that a lot of towns are still blocked or diverted even when theres no invasion happening, is this the case on all shards?

    Also according to the faction stone everything except 3 towns should be invaded, but none are. (1 owned by COM, 1 neutral & 1 only just cleared)

    I thought the purpose of it going on TC & Origin was so that we didn't have problems like this. It all seems very broken.

    All the Townsfolk on Lake Austin in Minoc are of a mind to steal, but there's no invasion here either. I still don't understand how this whole invasion thing is supposed to be working.
  3. There was also mention of a platinum dragon... anyone seen one?
    Or The special army rank loot?

    On Catskills last night there were invasions in every town I went to. In Yew the NPCs were in Cowardice and running and screaming like fools, and in the center of town there were six or eight Daemons (with more in the surrounding countryside) along with red NPCs that were called "recruits" or something like that (it was late and Im a bit foggy).

    Another city had Falsehoods, and before I knew it, one had walked next to me and I got the message that something had been stolen from my bag. The faleshoods are grey, so I was able to kill it and got a message that the item was returned to my bag (I didnt need to loot for it). I never found out what it was that was taken though...

    Brit was in Cowardice, and on the east side there were A LOT of dragons.

    I mostly checked the outskirts of cities, because my runes are marked for near the banks, and I didnt want to take the chance of poping in on top of a few big mobs.

    Lol, I hadnt read that this was happening so it all took me by surprise! I had been trying for a half hour to recall into Yew, but kept getting that the location was blocked, and finally walked from the Lich area. Its probably all that saved me from recalling in next to a couple of Daemons (OOooOOooOOoo)!

    Minoc has red [Angry] NPCs, I got ambushed and autoattack killed one and...

    "You have slain an innocnet..."

    Fantastic :(

    Im curious now if I missed a message when I killed the grey [Falsehood]???

    Maybe those towns are in the queue for an invasion?

    Makes sense... any town Ive seen that already had the invasion forces in place was in [Cowardice] mode. I dont know what place [Faleshood] ranks in the order, but it makes sense that the emotions would lead up to cowardice during the invasion!

    Hmm. I wonder if the invasion is happening simultaneously on each server? If so, you may have seen them in the first stage which would be falsehood, then I just now saw them in the second stage, angry?

    Im just guessing... it doesnt matter in the end. Im not going near angry for fear of another "killed and innocent" and even if falsehood didnt give me an innocent death against me, I am afraid of them stealing something good from me, lol. At least in cowardice they leave you alone! But then again, you have dragons and daemons to contend with... lose/lose :)

    I've seen that happen a couple times on Origin last night. I also saw that moonglow still prevents casting spells by the crater where the BR detector once stood. It makes battling the spawns much more dangerous.

    I think the recall blocking thing is just a timing issue when a city was being invaded, but isn't anymore.

    here in Atlantic Moonglow's been blocked for hours and there are no invasions in any town.
    the newer news at the herald said towns would start getting invaded even w/o the sigil being stolen right? or did i read that wrong?

    It seems as if the type of corrupted townsfolk that spawn is random.

    I'm pretty sure the townsfolk corrupted by Falsehood can only steal things that a player-thief would be able to steal in Fel. Bandages seem to be a favorite item.

    If a crimson dragon has spawned and the townsfolk are corrupted by Cowardice, the crimson dragon will kill them, even opening doors to get into buildings to do so. So if you're in a town where the townsfolk are corrupted by Cowardice and the crimson dragon has spawned but you need a few more warm bodies to throw at it, you can enjoy a fun show while you wait around, watching the dragon slaughter townsfolk. I'm not sure if the lower-level invasion forces also kill the cowardly townsfolk.
