    Keep getting Gravelorded in the Arena . . .

    Post by reim0027 on Thu Feb 07, 2013 4:31 pm

    I've seen the "Disasters are gone after defeat of the Gravelord Servant" message at least 3 times in the last week or so. I'm playing in the team arenas. Any idea why?

    On another thought, it would be freakin' awesome to have an insane Black Phantom in the arena.

    I dunno what that message is about

    And it would be kinda cool if there was a chance to get paired up with an OP black phantom in the Arena. Maybe a black phantom Smough like there was before the release date.

    It's probably since you got GLed somewhere else. Like i was gravelorded in the Parish but i got the message in a non co-op area where Andre is.

    I guess, but I keep a toon in the arena. I go back to the township only to cross sides from dais to ruins (or vice versa).

    But, imagine teams with a 5th universally hostile and overpowered BP. You'd need a chatroom for that one, for sure.

    I've seen it too. I assume since the arena is part of township territory that you were simply gravelorded in township.

    the message can show up anywhere, it doesn't matter where the gravelord is, if they die you get the message, if you randomly invade them as a red you'll see the message when they die as well.

    Since we're on the subject of the arena, I have a question about it.

    What's the best SL for arena? Best, as in, I will get the most action consistently. I go there periodically with my SL120 and wait for about 10-15 minutes for a single 1v1, so I get turned off and leave. Is there a better SL for me to be? Like optimal?

    A 5th indiscriminate BP would be insane. Like a roaming environmental hazard. Preferably with an aoe or weapon that can damage all 4 people at once if they were clustered.

    The 51-100 Bracket is the most active, and as a 120, you are put in the the 101-200 bracket so you can be matched up with anyone in that range regardless of the normal PvP range.

    Also the Eye of Death isn't usable in the arena, although for the visual effect alone, I wish it did.

    1-50

    and yes, it does not matter SL, its takes so much time to get summoned

    That's what I had always thought, until someone had led me to believe that it takes the same qualities in terms of summoning as co-op. Knowing that, I should really probably make an SL 100, shouldn't I?

    That goes totally against my experience, perhaps we play at different times?

    I would make a SL100, Myztyrio, even if you don't bother with the arena at all. If anything, it's great build making practice, and I personally believe it's more competitive than SL120. As well, having a single SL100 build for some fight clubs is nice to have when you need it should you end up playing as SL120 most times.

    We get crossed up with randoms at 100 often to notice it's pretty active. The cages always seem to have plenty of rings.

    Even after all the exposure , strange things still keep happening with the Eyes of Death lol.

    One time I got a disasters are gone message , a split second later BPs appeared. Sometimes when Im infected and kill the gravelord , the BPs don't even vanish.

    I cursed a friend in the Moonpit once ,he summoned me into his realm to have some fun with the BPs. When he died and switched characters , the BPs were there aswell eventhough I stopped cursing.

    Last week I load up a character who has BPs in multiple area's. I instantly warp from the Depths to the Township , and walk into the Royal Wood to find BP scarecrows allready standing there and greeting me. There was no gravelord to be found and I was only playing on that character for about 25 seconds :cyclops:

    Oh I'd certainly be active in the arena if I could consistently be fighting each minute.

    That's how it was for me for about 2 weeks after the DLC hit. It gradually slowed down and now it's not really worth the effort.

    hmmm interesting to know, sl 120 for me is almost "no arena", sl 100 and 55 I can still get duels, but not often as invasions, and only 1 vs 1.

    I've been having fairly decent luck in the arena lately. Playing in the SL 101-200 bracket with a SL 110. It does take a little while to hook up for a fight, but I don't think I've waited longer than 5 minutes and if I was waiting longer than that I'd just leave and come back later to try again.

    I've been wondering about whether you can spread your own infection to other areas in your world once you get it, even if the original GL is still in a different zone or gone altogether. For example, after easily 1000+ hours of trying to find gravelord BPs, I finally got infected in the township, but couldn't find the GL. Later that day I took the same character to the Burg and was greeted by BPs the second I got there, which didn't seem possible. I also cleared the entire level and could not find a GL sign anywhere. The most likely explanation was that I was infecting my own zones as I warped around, as after all that time of seeing nothing it would be an unbelievable coincidence to get infected twice in under 24 hrs.
