    Red face DRY TOP DOMINATION - SATURDAY the 13th of September - 7PM GMT // 8PM BST



    Hello!

    My name's Duke and I like hosting PvE events.

    I also actually really like the new zone, Dry Top, and the merchant-unlocking tier mechanic that comes with completing events around the map.

    And I think we would benefit from doing something like that as a guild! Just imagine it, stomping around in the dunes for two hours while we sling banter at each other and fight against Silky Sand's RNG.

    Hence...

    DRY TOP DOMINATION!

    Now we've tried something like this before and we didn't have too many people turn out for it. However, it was still fun and a good test of the map. To be honest, it's not particularly hard to get the Tier 5 merchant if you have several groups actively shifting around and completing events.

    So I'm thinking we divide the map into three sections...



    ...and have a commander covering each. As so many events pop in each area, there shouldn't be too much pressure to follow the timings exactly. We'll see how a semi-casual approach goes and then adjust as necessary - it may turn out that we do need to structure it a little better around the clock.

    What we need:

    - Two more willing commanders!
    - You! Volunteers ready to offer their life for the Bear God!

    What you need to do:

    - Empty your inventory.
    - Get acquainted with Dry Top, including unlocking the waypoints.
    - Make sure you have TeamSpeak installed.
    - Come along at 8PM British (that's 7PM GMT) on Saturday 13th September 2014.
    - Have fun! We'll organise things through chat and TeamSpeak (possibly Menthol's server but we'll confirm details on the night).

    I'm thinking we'll get a good two hours of excitement out of it. I remember the Pavilion very fondly and Dry Top is basically the same - except on a bigger, easier scale.

    We'll likely open this up to the Gunnar's community and Tumblr. This should be good practice for something bigger coming soon, too...

    Thoughts are welcome as usual!

    I'll be there too. I'd prefer not to tag up and serve as NCO/sub-officer/whatever you call them, though, but when needed my hat is at your disposal.
    If it's called Vlupius or Vlupia, it's probably me.

    Truly an amazingly fun evening. Lots of laughs and banter in the Teamspeak. Sadly, I haven't got any screenshots this time, but I think the event can't be captured in images anyway.

    Good times all around, hope to repeat it someday!
