Colony Wars update and fun with DeSanggria: PvP and Baron mode!

Before anything else, here's the results of tonight's Colony Wars session:

Congratulations to the following factions which acquired and / or defended their colonies: Dominion, Yakisoba, CARNAGE, Vendetta, Orb, CloudNine, Anonymous, Vradical, and DarkCrusade!

I'm wondering now if there will be a wipe of this map tomorrow - remember that in this entry it was stated that from 29 July until commercial release, there would be no wipe of the Colonies.


Well, we've made it to commercial release - is this a last hurrah before that happens? Stay tuned!

Last week after the Colony Wars session DeSanggria and I agreed to do something we'd never actually done before then: we made an agreement to meet each other in PvP today and see how much we both had to learn with regard to that feature.

Before I tell you what the results were, here were the line-ups we used:

NineMoons - Aurana, scout / Tuon, fighter / Chimal, wizard
DeSanggria - Cyradis, scout / Alaena, fighter / Verdandi, elementalist

We decided to do a best-of-three match and met up in the City of Auch on Channel 3.

And...I won!

00049

Which only means that when the inevitable rematch rolls around I'd better do my best~! ^^

Good game, girl!

But the fun doesn't stop there! After our match DeSanggria and I decided to go farm for Catherine parts at the Torsche Mansion dungeon.

We saw a bunch of bots there and out of sheer curiosity, we tried Baroning some of them!

I did manage to hit one family, but they logged out before I could complete the kill.

In stark contrast here's DeSanggria as a Baron, after she managed to whack 2 bot families!

Woot girl~!

And finally, a bit of a change in the current line-up:

00051

This would be: Aurana, First Aid / Fortitudo scout; Ravashi, Possession Ice elementalist; and Shahnti, Standing Shot Grace Bernelli.

While attempting to level Ravashi at the Tetra Ruins so that she could use her nifty elite stuff, I managed to pick up a Daemon Shooter - so I promptly rotated Shahnti into the line-up so that she could make good use of a good rifle! And it's because of that gun that they've both leveled up very quickly at the Tetra Dungeon.

I think I'll stick with this team for the moment, at least until Ravashi makes Level 28. Then I might go back to my regular line-up to continue farming at Torsche Mansion.

Props to DeSanggria and to Welling for sharing the fun at i-Hooked Katipunan tonight!

See you around and happy hunting to all~! :D
