Weekend Warfront: Talabec Massacre

July 30, 2010

This weekend heralds a return to Talabec Dam.

While it’s a complete repeat with no visible changes, it’s at least a fun map with decent tasks, so…

Here we go again!

The hastily constructed Talabec Dam is both a triumph of villager engineering and a potential disaster in the making, a disaster which forces of Destruction are bent on exploiting to their advantage.  Now Order and Destruction converge upon the single blocked finger of the Talabec in a struggle for the lives of innocent citizens.

Talabec Massacre – Weekend Warfront (July 30th – August 2nd, 2010)

The Talabec Dam scenario is open again for characters of all levels!  Intercept and deliver Bombs to gain points for your side, slaughter enemy realm players and claim a flawless victory in order to receive a unique title!

  • Basic Reward – Twisting Tentacle Pie

  • Advanced Reward – Vanquisher’s Boon – Buff that awards extra Emblems from Scenarios based on the score.

  • Elite Reward – Medal of Brawn/Medal of Perseverance – Live Event Slot item with 5d decay timer (Random)

(Different classes may have different options)

The Live Event Herald for Order is named Kadius Kridt and is located at (26776, 30868) by the Flight Master in Altdorf.  The Live Event Herald for Destruction is named Kralf Hexenkrieger and is located at (29455, 32368) by the Flight Master in the Inevitable City.

General Information

Talabec Massacre started on July 30th and will last until August 2nd.  The task list is the same regardless of Tier/Realm.

There is a bonus to Experience and Renown while in this Scenario, making it the place to be this weekend!

Note: I have pulled some amazing renown gains out of the Weekend Warfront scenarios (ie: well over 10k for multiple scenarios), so it’s definitely worth it to queue for this scenario simply for that 10% bonus.

This map should be fairly familiar by now seeing as how we’ve seen it repeated a few times already.

For the love of all that’s holy, run the bomb to the right drop-off point please.  Order takes it to the Dam (bottom of map), Destruction takes it to the Windmill (top of map).  IT’S NOT THAT HARD TO FIGURE OUT!!! 🙂

Oh, and feel free to pad your kill count with all the livestock.  Good times, good times.

Weekend Event Tasks

  • Successfully deliver 2 Bombs during the Talabec Dam scenario
  • Intercept 5 Bomb Bearers
  • Defeat 100 enemy realm players
  • Participate in the Talabec Dam scenario 15 times
  • Win a Talabec Dam scenario with 500 points
  • Complete all Talabec Massacre tasks

Of major note is the changed reward items.  The Vanquisher’s Boon seems to have taken up a permanent location in the Advanced slot which is perfect in my opinion.  The Elite reward will now be a chest that grants a Live Event Slot item with a random rarity that last for 5 days.  Not bad.  I like the random rarity because it means that even when a real Live Event comes along and you get one from that, you may swap it out for the shorter-duration one from these if you get the ultra-rare version.  Time will tell if we see the Basic slot keep the Pie or not though.  Personally, I’d like to see it rotate through random 5-stacks of fun items myself.

For the Task List this week, running the bomb could be the tricky part for some classes, but they’ve lowered the amount of times you need to do it which is good.  I’d expect you’d need a pre-made to pull it off as a squishy most of the time.  Good luck!

Title:  Talabec Survivor

If they changed the title, be sure to let me know.  They haven’t in the past though.

Have fun!

    Do you have images of the actual live event items? If I’m not mistaken this is now the third time Talabec has been the weekend event. They only had Ironclad for three days as a scenario total! Bring it back, even if just to get more feedback from rdps and healers on how it sucked. It was the mdps time-to-shine scenario. There was nothing better as a slayer to see a lone magus take a wrong turn in the ship and end up in the same corridor as me!

      A: It was stated in the July Producer’s Letter that they’d like to bring the Ironclad back, but it needs some work first.

      B: As I have yet to finish the event, I do not have images. Since they’re going to be different depending on what you pick, don’t expect a full assortment of images for the first time they’ve offered them. If I can get them all, I’ll post them. But that’s a big if right now.

      If I get them I can Post some images, most likely the Strength/wounds orientated items.

      It’s not just rdps, but the order spawn location in the Ironclad. Order healers could just stay inside the spawn, take brief trip outside it to get rid of idle hands and run back. And not to mention that sometimes order guards would aggro on destruction characters and spawn camp destro, something that never (at least I saw or heard) happened to order.

      Until they fix order spawn location, I never ever wish to see that scen again.

    Here’s a screenshot that has both the strength one as well as the wounds one.
    Worth noting that you can get these in either green, blue or purple quality. Me and a guildie got these blue ones, but another guildie got the green one.

    So I got the purple live event item. Selected the wounds:

    +12 wounds
    +8 toughness
    +5 initiative
    +1% crit reduction.

    Pretty sweet I’d say.

      I like the final bonus. That makes the purple one really nice for a Live Event Slot item.
