Starting this Thursday or Friday, all general monster hexes will be replaced by a low level escalation.  Clear it and 10 minutes later, another escalation higher than the previous one spawn.  Rinse and repeat until the end which will be the new monster escalation which will follow the ninjas.  First group to do it will get Marketstead settlement, complete with bulk, settlement kits, etc.  New group can keep the settlement, sell it off, trade it.  It is theirs to do with as they want.

Bob allude to as similiar sequence to last year, so to refresh people's memories, here was the sequence from last year's extravaganza.

Stage 1

  • Bonedancers
  • Broken Men
  • Nature's Wrath
  • Ripping Chains
  • Skeletal Uprising

Stage 2

  • Goblin Ghouls
  • Moloch Cultists
  • Razmiran Cultists
  • Skull-Basher Ogres
  • Undying Ogg

Stage 3

  • Duergar Slavers
  • Elemental Rift
  • Ustalav Invaders

Stage 4

  • Dark Elves
  • Mordant Spire
  • Them Ogres Ain't Right

Stage 5

  • Elite Dark Elves
  • Elite Duergar Slavers

Stage 6

  • Gathering of Legends

Stage 7

  • Over the Crown.

So Stage 8 will be the new escalation.

More details will probably follow.

To facilitate this event for everyone to enjoy, please remove any base camps /small holds from Ogre's Canyon before this Thursday unless you intend to participate in this event.  Once each escalation if cleared, clean out and remove your holding if you don't intend to participate in the next escalation in the series.  This is so that those people who do want to participate in this event can put down their own base camps or small holds.  Ogre's Canyon only allows for two holdings to be put down so don't take up a space unless you are participating.  

Once the full stage is cleared, we can resume our normal habit of placing camps and holds.

All the current escalations just disappear.

 

One big difference is the new escalation will spawn 10 minutes after the last one goes down so people prepared to blitz the lower levels can do several in one play session.

 

Note there has been some (unconfirmed) suggestion it may have more than seven levels this time.

Actually, re-reading Bob's post leads me to believe we will have to fight through ALL THE ESCALATIONS, not the limited amount of last year.  Which is supported by the 10 minute fallow time, because the normal fallow time would make it impossible to do all the escalations by new years. 

So that will be 21 escalations - the 20 now standard escalations and the one new one.   Plowing through the first 10 shouldn't be an issue and most of us could even solo most of those.  The last 11 will be the more problematic ones since those are very difficult to solo and will require us to party up.  Ninja's will be the challenge as to go through those quickly requires a party of four though as Edam and I demonstrated the other night, it is possible for two to do Ninjas but it is slow and very dangerous.

The final escalation is supposed to be very difficult and may require a max effort by all of us to clear it so we will try to get everyone in on that one if we can.

Post up in the availability thread your reasonable expectations of your availability so we can see who we have.  Rather than predicting far in advance your availability, we will do this day to day.

Rules and Prizes for the extravaganza are up on PFO forums.

In brief, there is a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize.  All settlements will earn points based on how far they got in their sequence by server up 7 Jan.  Points can be redeemed to buy recipes.  If a settlement 'clears' all their escalations in their designated hex, they will get a recipe for a Spellcraft building structure (new to the game) and a  free +0 kit for it.

What is confirmed - we are fighting through ALL the escalation in the game, so that is more than 21 escalations (the roster from last year had 20 escalations for the pool but it didn't include the Nhur escalations (except the Gathering) and the new one so my count is 24 escalations.

All standard monster hexes will get the Nhur escalation sequence on Thursday at server up.  They will remain in place until taken down - that is 46 monster hexes total.  Once they are ALL cleared, the new escalation will join the pool rotation with a limited chance of spawning.

Basically, running gushers in monster hexes will be interesting for quite some time.  Easy to start with, then getting real hard as the sequence gets to the higher level escalations.

Also, be careful.  There has been changes made to the mob AI, which will make for a rougher time fighting the higher level mobs.
