They are high level areas, but certainly not dragon level. The entire
point of the event areas thus far is that they cannot be done solo without a decent
amount of risk. We are entirely aware that some people want to be left
alone to do their own thing. That's great! Events are rarely included
And you won't understand the cause of your grief...
...But you'll always follow the voices beneath.
Really? I actually thought the foxes/mercenaries/salamanders were pretty weak.
I -LOVED- this event/promotional. HOWEVER if you hold these all the time, I'll be poor in a couple months. Let's do some greathunts or something! Haha.
For those who have bought stuff. I added up my "bonus" credits from Talisman pieces and completing sets/bartering my way into better positions. After all is said and done, barring I don't sell the Stygian pendant piece for 200 but sell it for 150 instead. I will be up 1830 credits on top of my 2k credits. That's an absurd amount of bonus...probably more than @Sarapis and @Tecton meant to be gotten but man was it worth it for me. I literally doubled up here with the 10% bonus for elite.
Kudos to you two guys and @Makarios for putting the event and the promotional together.
Eh, I died in 2.9 seconds, through vitality, as a lvl 92 monk with a favor and 5.3k+ health, and I was told all of those attacks were room-wide. Room-wide attacks mean that tankiness does not increase with group size, only time to kill.
For this event, bashing is more than just using 'dor kill mob' or hit/running. You need to strategically lay out your attacks to position them where you want them and capitalize. I'm sure you'll catch on after a few more deaths.
The parts we get to see I'm sure are just a fraction of the effort and work that has to go into it. I've loved seeing things progress - thank you for all of it!
So I'm unable to enter the new area now. Am I to take it that its not banned just to dragons, but lvl 90 and up? Wtf?
It was probably too easy for 90+ people. You're perfectly capable of bashing the harder things!
i'm a rebel
This isn't your typical bashing area - different classes can/must contribute in different ways. A level 95 occie can be incredibly useful to a group by say, using doppie priestess. For the record, occie also has pretty good tanking ability now, with a minute-long 15% damage reduction that doesn't use balance/eq.
If this is what the future of Achaean PVE looks like, this is actually pretty exciting.
I think Hirst said he got 4-5% at post-100 level bashing Poly for one respawn with 4 people in lesserform. So definitely worth it.
The question is (I haven't gotten to try it yet, so forgive me) does bashing as a group make the entire area pointless xp-wise like every other area does?
Tempted to say no. At least the exp seemed to be quite nice when I was killing things with a small group last night. Not sure if I was simply not paying that much attention to time.
Also worth noting that the essence values are ridic. I think every full respawn of Poly/Tundra is over one million essence.
This is pretty much how I view recent events:
Ok, we need to divide up this land area into two smaller areas. Let's brainstorm on a way to do that.
wow, you can bash poly in lesserform? I just get permastunned and squatted as monk up north.
I get permastunned and squashed as a dragon.
Lesserform bashing has only occurred in groups of 4 or more so far.
I sure as shit wouldn't lesserform to hunt there, 2 things would be insta-dead off any bashing attack.
lesserform not possible in Tundra that we've been able to do at least not lesserform/artefactless. I've lost 20% since this event started while hunting them in Dragon yea wouldn't try it with 2k less health.
1 second balances, 32% (1730h for me) per hit, elementals have a transfix attack ( on 1 second balance)... yeah, definitely can't solo that. If the attacks are still room-wide (which I've heard they weren't) you can't even take that rolling 5 deep.
The tundra stuff does room attacks.
