    The Glass Castle Challenge.

    Post by DamageCK on Fri Jun 15, 2012 9:58 am

    Like most of us, I'm constantly looking for ways to keep PvP fresh. So this is an idea I came up with that I think could be a good time.

    I'm going to host in the forest at 120 with two players from the forum. The catch is I will not upgrade vitality, I will wear no armor, use no shield and no weapon.

    The idea is that the two players must protect me from the mass of invaders. I cannot attack or heal, and I must remain close to my protectors at all times. So no dipping out to hide until the vaders are dead. The vaders will be 2v1'd, but the fact that they could easily OHK me levels the playing field, I think. Thoughts?

    I always liked the idea of using your phantoms as bodyguards. cheers

    why not dress up as reah and have the other two guys cosplay as her bodyguards?

    I didn't want to use armor/healing (spells included), or weapons because I want the vader to be able to do as much damage as possible should they be able to hit me. So no humanity either. GLASS Castle Challenge...

    Can you even 3v1 in the forest anymore? I haven't seen a single team of three while invading in a long time, and in recent days, never. Could From have changed the rules for that area?

    Show some respect to glass, it can withstand a slight to moderate strike!

    Damage - Cosplay Reah - have 50 att, get bodyguards to carry you through 4 Playthroughs, you can have 10 force slots attuned silly Then you have your two bodyguards.

    As a forest hunter I would be ok with seeing this. If I caught on to your game I would be all over this and laugh the whole time. However, I would draw up a contingency plan for the event that a hunter figures it out and wants to be a jerk. You'd be easy pickings for a Dragonslayer bow/Ring of Fog/Red Tearstone kill which would mean you'd have to go through the trouble of summoning again, etc. It could lose it's charm for you very fast. I've had nights where it seemed I invaded the same group over and over and over again, even with quit/reload, and other tricks to switch my lobby and you could end up with a repeat pain in the rear.

    I could grab a couple stacks of Force for the situation Skare described. This is probably one of those things we'll just have to try and see how it goes.

    And if you can't double summon anymore, we can do a phantom and RSS the other.

    I'm pretty sure that they cut out double summoning...i summoned for a boss fight and the other WSS disappeared.

    I wonder is PSN maintenance has made some things quirky. I haven't seen consistent 3v1 since our first mass forest invasion and even then it was often a red and a white. Since then I can't even remember the last time I saw a group attack me. Area might be a factor two. Amos talks about 3v1 and even 4v1 all the time and he's in England. Rural Western NY just might be a bad spot to party I guess but I would have thought that hosts would want as many summons as possible.

    EDIT: You said you were gonna do 120 builds right? I would suggest something similar to what we recommend as a dedicated peddler. No weapons in the primary slots but perhaps something worthwhile in the secondary. If you're skipping vitality points you'd have a LOT of extras for faith and int so you could dual wield a catalyst and talisman and royally jack people up if you decide they're not in it to have fun.

    Yeah, I'm also going to have a grass shield on my back, child mask, and cloranthy ring for all the dodging. I think Amos was the one who mentioned force, which I may use, but I wont attune anything offensive. Maybe I could do stuff with Chameleon and hidden body also. But like you were saying, having no VIT leaves a bunch of room for other stuff.
