After dominating Dry Top on Saturday evening, we headed over to Southsun Cove to pop the Legendary Karka Queen. This is somewhat of a tradition with the PvE events I organise, as it’s usually a nice way to finish off the evening with the guarantee of sweet loot.
Unfortunately, we couldn’t lure her out using our Guild World Event triggers - likely as we were in the hour window before the scheduled server spawn.
So we stuck around, throwing ourselves through the Skipping Stones jumping puzzle. Although we were all very tired, we still managed to get through to the end and then clobber the queen.
Thank you again to everyone who turned out for it!
On Saturday I hosted the event promoted on this very blog - Dry Top Domination. It was an open PvE event organised by myself and my guild, [RPS].
It was on a smaller scale than other PvE events I’ve held in the past and I chose not to promote it on Reddit. This did not matter as our numbers were nicely augmented by the randomers already on the map.
We stuck around for three sandstorm cycles, eventually operating by having folks pop their commander tags as they came across events to rally people around them. This tactic enabled the semi-coordinated map to rip through events quickly, leading to a successful Tier 5 merchant right at the end of the final attempt (we came within seconds of missing out - as shown above).
Anyway, Dry Top Domination was a great success and it was good to do some PvE again. The night didn’t just end there though. Click here for what happened after.

also we should buy Duke a navigator
That was quick. :D
Nice to have you with us tonight Charlie!
The weekend has landed. All that exists now is mobs, nodes, guilds and crafting. I’ve got 48 hours off from the world, man. I’m gonna camp Steam all day like a boiling kettle, I’m gonna go ramble to strangers all night, I’m gonna find events in the Dry Top.
The free radicals inside me are freakin’, man! Tonight I’m Duke Witherheart, I’m Philip Pirrip, I’m going to London town with my fellow aristocrats. We’re gonna get more smiles than Colin Johanson ever did.
Anything could happen tonight, you know? This could be the best night of my life. I’ve got 73 gold in my back burner - I’m gonna wax the loot, man! The Silky Sands are on me!
