The events will be primarily for Light Path characters. If you would like to play a
Shadow Path character then please post about that here so we can plan party sizes.
Server Difficulty: Silver
The event time for the above countdown is set to the hour of 2am GMT +0. If you'd like to convert
that time to your own you can apply your area's time zone value to the GMT time I've set for the
first event time; 2am. Mine for example is presently EDT during the summer which translates to
GMT -4 since I live in Montreal. 2am -4 = 10pm.
In Sydney Australia that would be 2am +10 = 12pm noon. Oooor... Just follow the countdown timer. ^^
This event countdown timer is set to 6pm GMT +0.
In light of the very many and wonderful people who have come to join us on the PC side of Sacred 2 I thought it might be fun to run a lil get together event. In fact I've been wanting to do this for a very long time. Reality it seems has had a tight hold on me but I think it's high time I kicked it in the butt and had a lil fun huh?
So here's the deal then. This coming Saturday(which is Sunday at noon for the Aussies) and Sunday I'd like to have a day event for anyone and everyone here at FDM. It'll go much like the good O'l Kamikaze event but there's nothing long term planned with this one. Just an event for the 11th. Now since there are so many new people we have the luxury of running old event ideas like my favorite, the Ancestor's Chamber's quest. Depending on the number of people showing up we may split up into parties and do different things. Like a Boss run for one party as an example. Aaaand of course we'll start the whole thing off with the first goal of the event to have everyone together for a couple boss targets. Usually Gahanka and the Griffin. One of the funnest things for me in the Kamikaze was when we'd run aaaall together on screen. I think we even managed 16 people a couple of times. Now THAT's a pretty awesome sight.
For those who get lag you'll need to keep in mind that playing in a low-ish graphics setting might help. The more people on screen the harder it will be for your system but once we split up into parties it won't be so bad. You'll need all your computer's resources for this event and to improve things you'll want to turn off all other programs while we play.
And now the catch... You're all going to die. Mwahaha! This event will be a level 1 event which means that EVERYONE must arrive to the event with level 1 characters. If you're thinking about wearing uber important gear such as mega impressive uniques or legendaries then I'll stop you right here and warn you that you are all most likely going to lose your characters. That's all I'm saying on that note. For now... ^^
Gear up gang! It's party time.
Some important points have been made during this topic:
Awesome, if we split into parties I will volunteer to lead the Mad Dash party if anybody is interested. Nothing is more fun than a Bunch of us at level 1ish hauling for the Human territory as fast as we can while wearing nothing on but a smile.
See ya all Sunday!
Fantastic loco. That's a generous and much needed offer. One I didn't think of and am glad for your thoughts on. In fact if anyone else is interested it's possible that we'll need a few more party leaders in the event we actually do end up with 16 players, haha.
I am in if I can get some gametime during that time! Sounds like a hella good time.
We may need to fire up some vent or ts for this.
I don't use those myself but I'll have my Xfire on. Mostly for video recording but I'll have my chat open too.

Well, I'll probably be good to go about 3-4hrs after you guys start since I'm on uni holidays at the moment, if dreeft is working a 9-5 job then he wont be free til 12 hours later at least.
Fudgecakes! I've got to go to an aunt's second wedding during the day I'll be on around 7-8 EST over here so maybe I'll join the party with the aussies
Hmmm.... Maybe a Saturday(my time)/Sunday(Aussie time) is a better idea? I've been entertaining thoughts for that kind of a split for events in general in order to include you guys in Oz for some time now. We could try that.
As for how things will go I'm thinking that we'll strive for level 15-ish at which point we'll pause for a bit to grab drinks and exchange items. Level 15 is a great level to do a quick upgrade of gear. If we end up leveling very fast then we may play to Level 25 but that all depends on how it goes.
Speaking of gear... Everyone should feel free to do some serious shopping for their Level 1 characters. Since there will be many people on the server the enemies will be pretty tough so make sure your gear has LOTS of slots/sockets filled with decent forgery such as Niob Smith arts for defense and whatnot. Many of us here can help out with that if needed.
Oh and IF we end up doing a split event, (Saturday/Sunday), BOTH times will be starting with Level 1 characters. Please don't play in the first one and then come to the second one with a decked out level 20-ish character, lol. That just wouldn;t be fair. ^^
lol Dobs. skirt blowing indeed. Well... As you know we're primarily a Light oriented bunch so as to increase chances of being able to party together. That said... As long as a few of you make plans together to be shadow aligned then I don't see a problem. It would be fun to see Inquisitor's in the mix. If some of you do decide to go the Shadow route just be careful not to be too many or too few so as to be able to have a decent party size. I'll leave that to those of you who want to be Shadow.
Are we talking light parties with seraphim or dark parties with Inquisitor here
Wouldn't want to be the lonely Inquisitor stood on the isle with his skirt blowing up around his ears
This is however, like all others we do, a Light oriented event.
