Horde Mode Event

Post by driller »

Since we have a few new players, I was thinking of doing another horde mode event. Based on the time I have available, it would probably be held later in the evening EDT time on the weekend. Please let me know if you are interested.

Unfortunately, I was unable to make time for this. I will make a more concrete plan in the near future.

As for me, the event is designed for players with experience, that is, having at least one high-level character and experience of participating in epic battles.

This should come as a shock to completely newbies. For RP-oriented players, this should come as a shock twice.

PS: Maybe, there are events without forge stones and lesser reward, but more soft.

I participated in the first version and did the most recent one 4 times during that Saturday.

I have been playing on the server for a couple months and this was the first event I have tried (just started raiding). It is definitely fun, ramps up fast, needs a ton of people, lags out with all of the persistent AoE spells, and is ultimately not very rewarding. In the end you get a character with some levels that you can relevel, and maybe a random item. I did the event 4 times one day, got to rounds 4,1,8 and 9. I had an emerald forge stone which I sold to buy more gear during the event, and a cherry forge stone from those 4 runs over multiple hours. Fun for sure, but I feel the rewards could be better, gives more incentive.

If you can complete wave 10, the boss at the end drops 6 + 1d6 forge stones, plus chances for other various things.

Is that drop split up randomly between the players?

It was a real hit over the weekend.

There were groups of 8,12 and the highest player count we had was 21 I think.

I could see it being really popular if it opened up on the weekends.

Heres a couple of screenies from the attempts.
