    Opinions on themed ganks

    Post by Cabjoy on Wed Dec 05, 2012 11:17 pm

    Hey all,

    I like getting ganked no more than the next guy, but I really really enjoy it when I find gankers either cosplaying or trolling the *** out of me. A lot of the time it ends up leading to **** around for ages and having a lot of fun. As long as gankers have put effort into their coordinating their costumes and having a sense of humour, I don't mind seeing it.

    Stemming from this, my mate and I have led ourselves to doing some troll ganking in the painted world. We both wear sack's on our hands, no chest piece, matching grieves and wield only double dark hands. We locate ourselves on the bridge, one either side of where DW spawns and barricade the invader while giving the unusable item shrug or poking at their HP with weak dark hand attacks.

    My question is, do you guys on the thread find this kind of ganking as infuriating as typical housewife in giants ganking, more infuriating than that, or if you enjoy seeing this kind of thing from time to time.

    We like to have a sense of humour, but I don't want to continue with it too much if a lot of people kick up a stink about it. So far the people who have invaded have not seemed to have an issue with it. happy

    It's never happened to me, but if it ever does, I can confidently say I'de have a blast lol. It really shows you that they're just messing around, rather than trying to the biggest douche possible.

    I'm all for it.

    I was ganked by Tarkus and Oscar in the kiln not long ago. They were taking themselves seriously, but it was still fun killing Tarkus and Oscar

    the best themed gank i ever got was 3 people all in Smoughs with non stop Force spamming. not really a gank because Force can't kill you but was amazing.

    I was actually thinking of doing double Silver Knight in Anor Londo soon, or Painting Guardians. Another I've considered is full crystal knight in Duke's. Now that I'm making a quality build I feel really content that I can do most of these builds with the same character! big grin

    sorry rant all i see is ganking with a GreatSword and Spear. not really style.

    imo the only way to gank with style is to use weak unused weapons, like everyone using whips, mass spamming of spells like force.

    so who wants to make a Gank squad with me??

    we all use the new DLC whip only, and we carry alot of stacks of Force and Vow of Silence only.

    But.....we were just screwing around with them, we weren't even trying. We only went hard against obvious trolls.

    @Glutebrah that was my thoughts with the Dark Hand too. I would've gone unupgraded caestus, but double dark hand just looks too good! I think double whips would be fun, or LH straight sword hilt RH Broken straight sword silly

    If you're on 360 I'll join you, though I don't have any attunement for casts with this character. silly

    i'd love to have this happen, also there was another vid i can't find now of a pair of gankers with so much stuff packed on that they were fatwalking (no roll) with the mimic head on and using weapons they didn't have the str for...

    Themed ganks, especially the funny ones can be great. I'm not too creative though, so I can't give you any ideas.

    Tiki warriors! Channelers Tridents + Unupgraded pyro flame with 9 stacks of fire surge and one fire tempest. Dance using 2h r2 until enemies come near then poke them with the stick before char-grilling them with your FS.

    themed ganks are insanely fun even if you die horrible, its people just having fun and playing the game and usually put up a non-cookie cutter fight, which is always great! big grin

    (Sort of ganking) I invaded a guy wearing full Havel's in the burg thinking "Jesus this kid is going to be a pain," when he uses chameleon which I just happened to have. We both used chameleon and just messed around until a SoV invaded. We then hid around until he saw us which then led to us spinning around and then stabbing him.

    I'd pay money to invade in the forest and find three male mages, naked, with only Logan's hat and catalyst coming at me.

    I'm fine with ganks who take it with a grain of salt and perform their ganks in a very tongue-and-cheek sort of a way. Those can be very funny.

    The ganks that I dislike are the delusional gannks who kill you in a 1v3 and then think they are the proest of pros.
