    Hello everyone,

    todays VU brought us a new oratan puny wave event south east of celeste quarry.

    After entering the ground and starting to fight through the first waves a couple of people joined and we fought... fought... fought.... and fought.... and fought............ yeah we did and after some time the first people left cause we fought.... and fought.... and fought...... until we where 2 people left at wave spawn nr 41 :D when a level20+ vandal showed up and hit us unprepared for such a mob level. before we could have been back with proper equiptment at the ground the wave was terminated and all our todays work of hours was shut down... by oratans, yeah oratans!

    its really a nest south east and the threat is unpredictable and yet unknown how many of them gather up there wave after wave.

    Everyone is invited to gather up again for a revenge on the oratan nest.

    Open for suggestions regarding date and time of our assault to make this a community event for as many timezones as possible.

    Greets,

    it was a regular wave spawn with that 20+ one (i think level 26) inside.

    so all those punys and that one at spawn #41

    maybe some wave event further a lancer spawns or something :)

    ok, thx for the info. I think a Lancer would be a "bit" too much for this wave, unless it was a really tiny Lancer (Prospector riding a Carabok? ;)) I would be happy with some kind of end to it though and not the all-players-die kind of end...

    Wave 41? That's quite persistent.
    When I was there I had a L8 Slasher Thug appear in wave 6, and a L10 Slasher Bandit at wave 25, so maybe it is a random thing based on your level (of skill/damage)? Because I've heard others that had very different levels Oratan pop up.
    I like the surprise element, and that almost every new wave includes 1 extra puny (yes, I did try to count them).

    (Because I also tried the Carabok/Gallards wave event, and it had 9 Caraboks and 9 Gallards in every single wave. At least up until wave 24, since that's when I ran out of ammo.
    Maybe a stronger mob would also have appeared randomly there eventually, but that the waves don't get any harder is a little bit tedious.
    With the low spawn, spread out in a big event area, your main activity is running around.
    I don't know if it is working as intended, but atm, the quarry is a much more logical choice to hunt Carabok/Gallard missions than this.)

    But the Oratan Prospector wave event is very nice to do.
    Almost wish there was an iron mission for these, since they don't seem to count for the kill-point mission.

    So if there is going to be an organized attempt to reach the 'last' wave, I'm up for it.


    ps. I don't remember where I saw that post suggesting it, but:
    A big yes to a revive closer to the wave events.
    It's already quite out of the way, and it would be nice if you could make it back in time.

    So I stood 61 waves alone with the bukin's blade, took 4 hours 40 minutes (tp-II'ed to quarry and back several times to repair it, managed to return fast enough to not timeout :cool:), not a single green dot turned up there during that time. I expected to get the achievement after the 50th wave (the purpose of all this) but didn't get any. So I stood another 10 waves to be sure and then one more to see what boss will be in the 61st.

    For it not to be completely useless, here are some data.

    Wave "bosses":

    Wave 6: L5 thug
    Wave 11: L6 thug
    Wave 16: L7 slasher bandit
    Wave 21: L10 bandit
    Wave 26: L8 slasher thief
    Wave 31: L18 thief
    Wave 36-40: L9 slasher vandal (one in each wave)
    Wave 41-50: L21 oratan vandal
    Wave 51-62: L16 oratan miner young

    I suspect that all waves after 51 has an oratan miner young as a boss and that waves are endless, but I've got only one life so I left after 61st :)

    Ended up with +91 profit (after repairs), thanks to two globals of 40 and 50. Without them it would be +1.

    And... A-team, you made me sad :( Even if you fix the achivement in future, I hardly will find courage to walk through this again.

    Ah yes, I forgot to mention that. They don't even count for the Oratan mission (except for the bosses, but that was a mere ~900 points).

    hi nikbu,

    the event was abandoned at quarry cause of the oratan alert. fighting several hours in the wave spawn to change to the alert event for another couple of hours is too hard.

    dont know atm when i have the time to do another attempt on the wave spawn, it can be that it got 100 waves or such. maybe i run it again when the oratan attacks stop.

    if another group goes for it, it would be nice if people post here so others can join in ofc.

    Greets,

    Alex

    FYI: For the Record

    We tried the wave event and spent a little over 8 hours and made it all the way up to wave 103. Was fun and not much changed after wave event 62.
