Pretty neat fo sho...Phase 1 lasted one week, Phase 2 5 days, Phase 3 3 days...Phase 4 lasting...hmmm
must admit... that first invasion in sw was pretty awesome :P
You don't need to have all the buffs at the same time to get the achivement. You just need to have had all four.
Xavius EU just completed our SW attack, with a successfull defence. The IF invasion failed, so that'll have to be done later tonight. I also just did the two different instances that got enabled, one of them being in Ruins of Ahn Qiraj and the other in Zul'Farrak. Not gona spoil anything, but it was EPIC, take loads of screenshots to remember 4ever because this won't happen ever again in wow after cata is released.
dungeon finder is only active for 30minutes ONCE the city has been defended. event is once evry hour or so i think so 30mins to clear city and 3mins to do dungeons.
*sigh*Just failed because that one last civilian in the Pools of Vision in TB decided to bug and stay in the water. (evade when you try to use the item on him) :-(Have to say this event is pretty cool though... The first Orgrimmar attack was awesome.
Any more on this, Rankorr? From your guide a while back that you linked to in this thread:There is a feat of strength associated if you help close 1 rift on each sector of your city, so just focus on 1 sector every time the event start.Is this referring to Tripping the Rifts or something else?
no achievements either
Considering how fast this ramped up, i wonder if there will be more to it that Blizz has hidden. Tomorrow is patch day.
no achievements eitherTripping the Rifts - Yeah, you could've gotten it earlier, but it's really easy now.Considering how fast this ramped up, i wonder if there will be more to it that Blizz has hidden. Tomorrow is patch day.Hope so, would be awesome.
I wonder if SW and IF are on the same timers.
I still think the elemental pets should also turn on their owners during this encounter. That would make it even more fun!Lol - that would be hilarious at least in the beginning ..... :) Logged in and this event was underway in Ironforge - we eventually formed a raid group after dying a few times and reclaimed the city while another group was doing the same in Stormwind - was entirely fun and intense. Then que'd for the four bosses afterwards with some guildies - nice event Blizz - will be some good gear for an alt I imagine:)
fuuuu-of course my subscription ended yesterday =pthere is a 7 day free window to get peopke to come back you might be able to do it still
fuuuu-of course my subscription ended yesterday =pLol, same here. And I thought I was going to wait a week or 2 to re-sub. Can't take advantage of the 7 free days either since my account was still active when they sent out the emails.*pulls out debit card*
...and no one should be able to complain about getting murdered (since they'll be given ample warning and a route of the combat zones).Unless you log in during one of the invasions.My level 40 warlock logged into Orgrimmar only to find a level ? fire elemental about 30 yards away. Thankfully I was able to hearth out in time -- I definitely wasn't about to casually saunter around the town looking for the safe portals out. My level 50 hunter logged into Stormwind just as the last rift in that section of the city was closed. So no immediate threat, but could easily have logged into an attack.Now that I know the invasions are active, I can work on moving characters to safer cities. I'm just glad that I have level 80 characters that can log in to scope things out before logging in with low level characters.Edit for clarity: Not that I'm complaining, just saying that a five minute pre-warning won't help all characters.
You don't need to have all of the buffs at the same time. You just need to have had them once. Once you get all of the buffs then you will get the Tripping the Rifts feat
IRONFORGE WILL BURN...FIRE ELEMENTAL.
If you succeed at closing at least one of the rifts, all players who participated in the defense will gain a buff appropriate to the type of elementals you just repelled. Also, every city will be attacked only by two types of elementals, so if you want to earn your Tripping the Rifts by defending your cities, you will need to defend each one at least twice.Actually, not so much. Some districts will be attacked by one type of elemental, while simultaneously other districts will be attacked by the other.You'll have to defend two districts of each city, but you can do it all in one invasion.
so by my calculationseach rift spawns 32 elementals2 rifts in each districts means 64 elementals per district5 districts means 320 elementals per city2 citys means 640 elementals per invasionall have 315k healthwell for people who asked for over 100 elementals per city here you have it THREE HUNDRED AND TWENTY ELEMENTALS PER CITY PER INVASION not including the minor elementals that spawn before the real invasion hitscaptcha= saisecks when?really?
It was soo hard to get the acheavment before this event i hope there isnt way to much lag.
