    ORRIENT EXPRESS - Saturday 28th February, 1600GMT



    1600 GMT – 28th February – Fort Trinity, Straits of Devastation
    ALL WELCOME

    Time for another RPS PvE romp – and this time it will be a tour of Orr (an Orr-tour, if you will) from the depths of the Straits of Devastation to the ruined towers of the Cursed Shore.

    Yes, we’ve all been to Orr a dozen dozen times, but this event will be about rediscovering all the hidden nuggets that those of us with short memories have forgotten about. When was the last time you...


    • Admired the Pyrite Peninsula?
    • Climbed the Vizier’s Tower?
    • Excavated the Zho’Qafa Catacombs?
    • Puzzled your way around the Antre of Adjournment?
    • Threw the Inquest out of Bauxite Alchemicals?


    We’ll be doing all this and more. (And in case you were wondering, those are rhetorical questions :P) Hopefully we'll help you pick up those exploration and jumping puzzle achievements you've been missing, as well as trait unlocks and revisiting some of the hidden gems of Orr.

    Expect ridiculous tonics, zerging off cliffs, competitions and prizes, and all the usual RPS-brand fun.

    If all goes well we’ll end the night with The Ruined City of Arah, Explorable Mode – so if you’ve never run that dungeon and always wanted to, this will be a great opportunity to make progress towards your dungeon master title. I'm hoping we can even get a group together for Path 4, for those of you who haven’t yet run the longest path. We'll try to pre-arrange parties for specific paths if possible.

    More info to follow - for now, reserve the date!

    I was just saying at the HoT even how difficult I find it to hear the Thomas the Tank Engine theme without Biggie joining in within my own mind, kudos.

    Ohara: Trait unlocks good; forgot about that, thanks.

    Hawks: Am anticipating Arah first-timers - will update the OP to reflect that they will be welcome, nay encouraged, to join us. Loose plan is that our run around Cursed Shore will finish at the Gates of Arah, where we can arrange dungeoning.

    Closer to the time we might try to pre-arrange some Arah parties (to gauge interest in doing specific paths. We already have at least two people calling for Arah 4). We might set a time for the Arah groups to start too, making it a two-part event - so you can just come for the dungeons if you want.

    SO people don't forget that sigils of undead slaying are very cheap and will give a nice boost for this entire trip...

    Less than two weeks to go. At this point I'd like people to express interest in specific Arah explorable paths for the second part of the event. I'd like to get an idea of just how many people want to do p4, p1, etc.

    Please state below which path you want - and only say ones you need for completion. Those of us who have Arah completion already will divide ourselves up between the paths to ensure there are enough people to show the way.

    So if you need a particular Arah path and are coming on the 28th - say so below!

    Is there any way to find out which paths you have already done, achievement tab doesn't seem to tell me. I know that I need 2 paths and one of them is the really long one (path 4?).
