Ahoy all ye piratin' people!
Yeah, I don't know if that made sense, but I wanted to mix things up a little. Anyway, yesterday was my event to fight the new turret bosses! Thanks to everyone who came and joined in! It ended up being a lot of fun! On a side note though, I apologize for the rocky start.
I hadn't fought any of these turret bosses before yesterday, so we started out in Cool Ranch. We quickly discovered that the drops, gold and NXP
weren't very well suited for about 90% of the party, so we moved to Marleybone. I apologize for any confusion this caused, and I will be sure to do more research before any future experimental events! There were several pirates that helped by porting people and scouting out realms in advance though, so thank you to all of them! And thank you to everyone who stuck around throughout the confusion! It was fun once everything got sorted out!
Anyway, once we got to Marleybone we managed to defeat the Assault Station about 10 times, give or take a few. It was really quite easy with the amount of people that were there (about 10-15). And I have to say, the graphics are awesome! Especially the fireworks! :)
The not-so-easy part was finding realms where the turret had respawned. We all discovered that I, Autumn Walker, am the Spiral's worst realm-chooser-person there is! :) It's a title I will wear proudly. However, from now on at realm-hopping events, I will do what we did yesterday and let everyone take turns choosing realms. It seemed to work out well, as long as we didn't try to port to a full/crowded realm. lol
After awhile though, we ended up moving the party to Aquila to farm Captain Spartacos, or as Edward Lifegem calls him, Captain Taco! lol I didn't get to take pictures in Aquila, but here are a few from Marleybone, to the left and below.
The turrets definitely add a new aspect to NXP events. Kudos to the Pirate101 team for coming up with this idea! I do have some suggestions I would like to share though, so watch for another post about that, hopefully tomorrow. Thanks for reading and have fun! And again, thanks to everyone who came. If you weren't able to come to this event, don't worry! There will be plenty more in the future! See you next time :)
