Collection Event - sort of...  

Posted by SpearDriver in , ,

Many of the players on 9DGermany are doing their best to convince Games Campus to put on more events, but the message isn't getting through. For better or for worse 9D players got used to regular weekly experience events and many people simply wont play without them. I have players in my band stuck at RC/RL levels and they haven't been seen in weeks. They want regular events and didn't get them on this server. They voted with their feet, and left.

I mention this because this weekend Games Campus has come up with an event!

It's a nice idea but really, only about 15 people will be able to play this one. It's a collection event. Sort of. You have to collect 20 pieces of steel as your entry fee to join a special True General Wei spawn event on Monday night. Games Campus will spawn TGW 3 times and people who already have that epithet are not invited to the party.

I have a small chance to get this epithet. I am one of about 15 people on the server who are Half Maniac, or Humble Master level. In the 5 years or so that I've played this game I've never had this epithet. Obviously I'm going to try for it and I'm collecting all the damage equipment I can find. My competition includes a bunch of incredibly lucky weapon refiners and +9 is the new +10.

Hey ShadowGuyver, can I borrow your axe?

So far there aren't lot more details for this event. Apparently we'll be teleported to where ever the spawn spot will be. That probably means CC5. I hope not. We probably wont have time to get the anti-PK buff and I'm on a PvE build. The first nuker who decides to clear the room will end the event for me. I'll have some herbs with me, against the poisoned air, but I really don't have anything to save me from a nuker.

I'm just going to have to hope for the best. Any suggestions?

Update: Like I said, I had a small chance to win one of these but it didn't happen. Thanks though in particular to Lilith for the loan of an nice axe and healer support during the three spawn.

Just for the record I had damage relics and decos from the Master & Disciple system that totaled an 80% increase in damage and some attack rate. I had 1k damage pills and 20% crit rate pills too. For clothing and epithets I used critical rate damage clothes that with my masteries and premium added 21% to all critical hits. I know I was getting True General Wei's attention. He was hitting me back regularly.

It's annoying to use these good items for nothing, but without them you can't possibly win, and what hell, it's at least worth it to try.

The first 2 winners were actually melee characters using very similar equipment to what I had. I had a chance there, and I had the right ideas.

Xena, I've got a bunch of really good manuals and books for you.
