    Awesome @Shane , consider making the boss bump back to altar like coon? I mean imagine luring it miles away out in the sea.

    After we've had multiple people test things we are going to:

    Make it so boats aren't blocked as easy by blood, gold etc.
    Make all new custom mobs for the entire champion.
    Remove a ton of the krakens.
    Look over the champion code for lag issues we seem to be having in that area.
    Possibly make the champion spawn loot drop as booty chests that you drive over with your boat to obtain.
    If we do this, we will remove the entire platform, but i kind of like the platform.

    Feedback is welcome for those who have tried it so far.

    I honestly think the altar thing could stay but maybe place it atop a dock/pier that is literally only the tiles' width/length of it so that way no spawn or people can get onto it. You could even put the invisible blockers so no one can land on it. Just an idea.

    Did this event in its entirety. Besides the issues you already seem to be working on, here's a few I noticed:
    1). Both areas are difficult to move around on, the docks and the water, without being blocked by players, spawn, or boats.
    2). It is difficult to drag & target spawn in that area. Kraken hit boxes go crazy when holding control+shift making it hard to pull hp frames.
    3). It is exceedingly difficult to actually loot spawn. Besides being physically blocked, the coves in the docks won't fit a boat and are to far away when standing on the docks to actually loot corpses. Grabbing corpses in the water when on a boat is often blocked

    I would suggest cutting off that platform off from tge dock. Making it a small island itself. Maybe add some spokes to spread the spawn radius while blocking less water. Making like a compass with the alter in the middle and docks going NSEW.

    Yeah I am more focused on the man made island more so then the lagoon they made around it. That is something that could also be added but I could see that getting completely filled with spawn if it generates as fast as it did in the inaugural run.

    Both Ki-Rin Passage and Serpentine Passage are now recallable/gatable/markable. These passages are connected directly to Ankh Dungeon. There is something special in both passages. I encourage you to pm me your opinions on the two dungeons as I have been adjusting things when I get feedback and agree. Specifically @Bromista has been having discussions with me in regards to the pvm aspect of the dungeons thus far so thank you to him.

    Yeah Kirin passage, such a drool fest for meta farming.
    I explored Ankh though and didn't find a way to Serpentine, where is that? :)

    Should be far south west corner. I think that black demon spawns in there. The guardian dude, the actual passage is blocked off with rocks.

    Apologies on the delay with the guild system and the fixed on the champ system.
    We've been under some heavy dos attacks and we have been dealing with non stop server issues and host changes during all last week, this weekend and this week.

    As you can see our main website has been down for over 16 hours now.

    We are prioritizing things and getting all our services online is #1.

    Thank you guys for waiting on this, without these issues, this all would of been in on time, i just want to state that full out.

    We will be releasing guild system for testing right away and the butler is 100% done.
    We need to do multiple changes with the water champ to make it how we want it exactly. It is a very unique champion spawn since boat activity is being forced and cannons are being used.

    Thanks again
