Yup, these spiders are unguardable. Unlike players who e.g. loot other (blue) players during the invasion, so guards seemingly were still active (at least partially / by bug, not sure if fully), making you having to think twice where to hit due to people jumping into hits (mostly unintentionally).
You pay to the controlling guild.
And yeah- events are fun only if they have a chance of ending up with the spiders actually kicking ass of the players. What's the use of making and responding to events if they have a set ending (good)?
Right, damn hilarious, very funny!
This is how it went: i am idling by the west bank in Bakti and i catch a glimpse of a guy running out and pulling his bigass axe out, i am tinking like what is that douche up to, i turn a bit and 3 mountain spiders far outside comes to view. I tap the enter, slash, yell, i turn capslock on. I turn capslock on and go into roleplay mode: SPIDERS OUYSIDE. Yea, ouyside, i quickly then typed outside after that.
Then i dashed at the exit and brought up my veterans incisium spear. I take a look back and see few more men rushing towards me, and i am thinking: hell yeah, we got this under control. So then i kick 2 mountain spiders, someone ninja looted one of them, so i took one more out, went and banked the shit. Then i started wacking one already inside the village, and my spear breaks... it still got 5 durability last time i checked, fuck. So i lost the spear, had no spare and was pretty much tanking for a while. People started to die left and right once the handful of fighters were pushed back and spiders came in the village.
After the server message came about invasions 20 minutes after the slaughter started in Bakti, dc boys dispatched a platoon from Fabernum to Vadda, didn't join them and cannot speak of their exact planning, but i decided to scout Mohki. When i went over the hill, the server message of assistance for Bakti guards came up - village was already ovverran for like 10 minutes. Wessex were holding the fort there nicely and i went back to Bakti. Somehow dc boys were already there, then i got a spare spear from Raknor, and we pushed spiders back.
Meanwhile three updates from Yoshi in Vadda mentioned no invasion still. At this point i started to wonder if the gm mistyped Vadda for Bakti. Can someone confirm invasion in Vadda?
