RPS invades the Zho'qafa Catacombs -- Tuesday 19th Feb, 8pm GMT
Time for another event!
There's an obscure event chain in the southern Straits of Devastation which has recently received some interest. It's hidden away in the Zho'qafa Catacombs, an area which doesn't even have a POI to its name -- so even lots of people with 100% map completion haven't been there. The reason people have become interested in the event chain is that it spawns a massive chest at the end -- and many believe that it's a likely candidate for the location of the elusive Final Rest staff, which has not yet been found in-game.
A description of the event chain is found here:
I've been meaning to check this out, but it would be fun to get an RPS group together to explore the event chain (which is apparently quite cool even independent of far-fetched loot ambitions). I think it will contain group events, so ideally we'll need at least five people.
We'll meet at Fort Trinity, in the east of the Straits of Devastation. 8pm GMT on Tuesday.
Tonics will be distributed! :-)

Wow, I've visited that area a lot when the skill point was bugged and I never expected there to be an actual event chain in those catacombs.

Sounds like fun,I should be online then. Hopefully at some point we'll have to make some tricky jump so half of us could plummet to our deaths, the only thing funnier than lich dancing in this game is guild mass-faceplanting.
Oh, and can I have some gin with my tonic?

yay, there is 1 thing preventing me from getting 100% Orr completion (which is different to map completion oddly enough); maybe it's this.
I'll definitely be up for it.

Great, we should have a decent sized group for this.

Might not be there, am freaking out about the EXAM.

I would love to come with you, but tonight I am helping out a collegue with some experiment demonstrations and might be too late.

Oh gosh, this sounds fantastic. I will try and make it if I can.

Thanks to all who came along! The event was fun went very smoothly; the most challenging part wasn't the legendary eye of Zhaitan but the Champion Risen Abominations which kept oneshotting us with their Karka-style roll.
None of us found the elusive Final Rest, but I believe at least one person found a named exotic in the chest.
Hopefully when the new guild events are released we'll have more opportunities to field an RPS pve zergGW2: Saphnabylni & co.

We should have a Elimination evening one night Killing Karka champions. I'm willing to give 3 ecto's to the final person who stay alive without dying at the end. ^.^

I'd be up for that; I need the ecto's, (would probably have to change my build again first though).

I was a bit late to the party but managed to get a few blue items from the Eye of Zhaitan's Grand Chest, yay. The small bit of the run I actually took part in was fun, if maybe a bit lacking in revealing research data. But we shouldn't worry too much about those anyway given the chance of a "Final Rest" drop seems to be pretty low, even with the correct event/champion/chest identified.
A developer commented on the official forums on that:
"Just a quick note—I said the odds of it dropping was closer to .005 than the 1 in a million or so that was tossed out. Those aren’t the exact odds, but if my math is correct, 10 players running the event every day might expect one staff to drop after about 7 months. (And we haven’t been out that long.)"
