    Tomorrow at 9pm EST we will be adding a bunch of pirate chests to the grotto dungeon. These weigh a lot, so you can't walk far with them. The goal is to get as many as possible out of the dungeon and into your Bankbox. The 3 players with the most of them in their bankbox gets to keep a pirate chest and wins a trophy as well!

    You can gate off of the dock, but you won't be able to gate back to it! You cannot gate from inside of the Grotto.

    I think this goes without saying but
    #1 Don't bring anything you would not want to lose
    #2 It is not unlikely that you will die at some point
    #3 Have fun! (Remember, if your ship is sunk, you can buy it back for only about 2k for the new ships during this test period.

    PS: If you want to carry the treasure onto a boat,or through a gate, I HIGHLY recommend you have a LastObject hotkey. That way you can double click the gate or the rope while it is out of reach, pick up the chest and hold it on your cursor, and then use the hotkey to go through at the right time.

    Oh, I suppose I should mention that everybody who has pirate treasure in their bank will receive a prize (but they won't get to keep the treasure chest itself, sorry!

    To enter a gate while dragging a chest/something super heavy:

    In Razor, record the following:

    Double Click moongate (then make it DoubleClick by Type)
    Wait For Gump (Any)
    Click Continue on enter moongate gump (Gump Response (Button 1))

    The pirates are camping the docks so if you go out there be prepared to have boat sunk or all of you killed that don't get off boat. And if you get off boat and they attack ship you can not dry dock. The pirates B^W are just hanging out there on a ship so they can keep people from getting into the dungeon. Unless some one that can get a boat and attack and sink them they will be camping. I'm done trying to go out there and am not losing any more boats. I was repairing one and a thief stole my repair tool because they parked on top of my boat and revealed me. Had no choice but to leave. If they keep camping it and not letting people into the dungeon then that dungeon will be seldom used.

    The not being able to gate onto docks but can gate off the docks is a strange thing. Is this going to be this way all the time?

    Find friends.
    Kill them.
    As with any other farming aspect of the game, one wants to hunt solo to earn more gold and not have to split it. The risk being that they could get their shit shoved in.
    Them doing this is actually great. Providing they stick around for the event. Gives everyone a taste of what the boat battles can be all about.
    Kudos to them.

    perhaps you need to find someone who actually is registered with those privateers , then you can get in!

    The event lasts until all the chests are gone. I'll be looking through to decide the winners tomorrow after I get home from work. Also, the orc awards will be distributed then.
