Too many aviansie bots now :( Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 15:48, May 15, 2011 (UTC)

Aren't most of them outside though? sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 15:51, May 15, 2011 (UTC)

Start time[edit source]

There has been some previous discussion about event start times of previous GWD events because some attendees weren't pleased with how it was handled. I expect that killing 40 aviansies will both take longer and have higher variability from player to player. I'll probably get my kc a little early (same as always), but it might be worth setting some expectations more clearly on the event page. However the ET wants to do it is fine, but not setting expectations may invite another round of the saga. Just a short statement should do the trick, I would think. --Saftzie (talk) 00:47, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

You and powers make a good point... When I get home from school I'll go find how long it takes for my 89 range to obtain 40kc with the bots present and I'll expand on the killcount section. - [Pharos] iPhone Edit 01:48, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

I know! since we separate into groups, each group should go at a reasonable time for the group! :D forgot to sign D:--Qazwsx753421 04:17, May 18, 2011 (UTC)

???[edit source]

we get there at the time, and go into dung as a group, but need to have kc when it starts? that, my friend, is a contradiction. --Qazwsx753421 04:34, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

It's currently a proposed event. Nothing is set in stone, we're still writing it. (; sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 04:35, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

4 days left..... and the setup should be finished soon, i take a while to get ready :P.... and 5 ppl going so far??--Qazwsx753421 04:15, May 18, 2011 (UTC)

The result of the poll and the actual attendance are usually unrelated numbers. There's usually more interest than actual attendance, but there's no notice on the front page yet. So all those people who won't actually come haven't had a chance to say they will. --Saftzie (talk) 06:31, May 18, 2011 (UTC)

Also, who makes those awesome event banners? they look awesome!--Qazwsx753421 02:27, May 21, 2011 (UTC)

Fergie - She doesn't come cheap though D: - [Pharos] 02:56, May 21, 2011 (UTC)

What style whould we use? accurate, or rapid? and i've noticed that other guides i read don't state this either--Qazwsx753421 03:41, May 21, 2011 (UTC)

It really doesn't matter with ranged, just pick one 0__0 - [Pharos] 04:11, May 21, 2011 (UTC)
Accurate and Rapid have the same invisible attack bonus. Rapid just does damage ~15% faster at the cost of a higher "breakage" rate (i.e., bolts that vanish). --Saftzie (talk) 04:16, May 21, 2011 (UTC)

Timing[edit source]

Is it possible to have at least one GWD event (preferably not Saradomin since I don't have the level) at or after 8:00PM Eastern Time (so at or after 1:00 AM UK time)? I know most people find the current standard event time easier but it would be nice to have at least 1 out of every few events at this time so people free Saturday night in America have an easier time of playing. (not every event but if 1/10 of the people like this time then have 1 every 5-10 events at this time please) -- 613angel 02:34, May 17, 2011 (UTC)

Bolts[edit source]

How many diamond and ruby bolts are suggested, assuming we want to stay for the whole event (which I assume will last a few hours, judging from previous events)? Stewbasic 00:35, May 21, 2011 (UTC)

I've never been before, but 300 of both should last you the whole trip along with an ava's device - [Pharos] iPhone Edit 00:47, May 21, 2011 (UTC)
If it's anything like previous trips, 300 ruby bolts is way overkill. I've ranged every GWD trip and I rarely get more than one or two shots off before the boss is at 50%. 300 diamond is a good number, though. --Saftzie (talk) 04:12, May 21, 2011 (UTC)

Ooooh, wish I could[edit source]

but busy.

Should there be a mention of how long the event is expected to last? (Or have I just skimmed through too quickly?) --   For Camelot!  Zang! talk  My health! 09:41, May 21, 2011 (UTC)

Honestly, i haven't the faintest. From previous GWD events, it'll probably be 4+ hours... Infact, theres a good chance we'll be there until we all get the 6hr disconnect :L - [Pharos] iPhone Edit 11:40, May 21, 2011 (UTC)
My food ran out after an hour, so I left. If some folks are able to stay, it's possible to restock, get kc again, and go back, I suppose, but I won't. Lots of people were running low when I left. I was able to compete pretty well against the bots, but it was still a pretty annoying kc for me. I'm looking forward to the debrief from those who could stay a while. --Saftzie (talk) 14:56, May 21, 2011 (UTC)
