As I was sitting around in Cove on Origin, I happened to come across this group of new inhabitants...

The Vanguard also had a few pieces of interesting equipment on them...

Along with the Vanguard Controllers, there were sightings of...

  • Liches
  • Dark Wisps
  • Shadow Iron Elementals
  • Dark Wolves
  • Daemons
  • Lich Lords
  • Dark Guardians
  • Zombies
  • Brigands
  • Restless Souls
  • Nightmares

The Vanguard also have some interesting things to say, the sayings I've heard so far are...

  • Legum Servi Sumus
  • Beware I live...
  • Bellum Omnium In Omnes
  • Bellum letale
  • Libertatum Est Vendere
  • Bellum...
  • Bella Horrida
  • Magnus acervus erit
  • I am Vanguard!
  • Aut Viam Invenium
  • I hunger!
  • Non Est Disputandum
  • Beware Coward!
  • Run, Coward!
  • Dulce Bellum!
  • Run!

Since I was not combat suited, I couldn't check the Vanguards combat strength, what they dropped upon death, or anything about the new mounts they rode. The cities of Nujelm, Cove and Delucia seem to be the only ones under attack, however they are being attacked in both Trammel and Felucca.

As far as the sayings go, they are apparently Latin, I had a friend translate them for me. He said the tenses are somewhat incorrect, however this is what he believed them to be... (Note, some spoilers below).

* Legum Servi Sumus = You are laws servant.
* Bellum Omnium In Omnes = War all in all.
* Bellum letale = A fatal war.
* Libertatum Est Vendere = Freedom is being sold.
* Bellum... = War...
* Bella Horrida = Horrible War.
* Magnus acervus erit = The great heap is. (He was unsure on that one)
* Aut Viam Invenium = Discover the path or else.
* Non Est Disputandum = There are no debates.
* Dulce Bellum! = Great war!

No berserkers, and Moonglow still has the gate and monsters, although the amount of monsters seems to be very low, but that could be just because I'm comparing Origin to Atlantic.

I was there , pretty fun dying but still it was enjoyable. The spawns for awhile got insane.
One cool thing is the house placed right outside the gates , good place to rest/rez
my poor pet got battered bad by the controllers.
Some stuff couldnt be hurt by my cu either.

I was able to assist on one vanguard but didnt see a cloak or anything on him

ok moonglow is still there.
Some questions:

- those city, delucia-cove-jhelom, have a mirror place like moonglow
or the city are infected in trammel?

- any use for blackrock? or they work only on shadowlords?

thx =)

Well, of course, they attacked first.......Shrines of Love invasions.

As is often the case, Evil attacks when it wishes. It will take an excuse if it has one, but it doesn't really need one.

This event must be come-and-go I take it? I made a noob I made on Origin, and have him logged out in Cove. After this post I logged him in, and there was nothing.

Or they've forgotten to turn it on, heh
I don't think they actually PLAY the game, given how many obvious bugs/problems that exist or they miss. :P

I was on Origin last night for about an hour or two. The invasion started in Cove. Then somone shouted that Serpent's Hold was being attacked, so we all went there and battled the baddies. Of course the only two Vanguard Controllers were stuck in the ground and we were unable to kill them so only the other baddies respawned...maybe 5 times while I was there. Dark Guardians, Demons, Dark Wisps, Dark Wolves, Lost Souls, etc...
The one really odd thing I did notice while fighting a Vanguard Controller at Cove was that the blackrock spell did go off once and my character was thrown back 3 or 4 tiles. I am not sure if I took damage or not because of the mass confusion. Well of course I ran to arm myself with blackrock, but when I return and tried the spell myself it would not work. I am thinking that the Vanguard Controller cast the spell or it was effective on another monster in the area I did not see.

interesting...maybe the Vanguard Controller cast it or
maybe someone else do it and you are bugged? :laugh: :laugh:

why now the spawn is over on cove?
or the spawn move from a city to another one?

anyway, thx for the info!
