    We are once again running our famous Zombie Survival event.

    • YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT YOUR CHARACTERS SKILLS OR ITEMS BEING EDITED IN ANY WAY. YOU WILL CONTROL A "ZOMBIE AVATAR" DURING THE EVENT.

    • DUE TO THE SHORT DURATION OF THIS EVENT, PLAYERS WILL BEGIN WITH NEAR GM SKILLS
    OBJECTIVES
    This is just an interim run of the event. There are no objectives. The top 50 players will receive a small reward for participating.

    *While the Zombie event is running, type [z or [zombieland to access to the zombieland UI. To speak in the zombie general chat, type [zc messagehere



    NEVER PLAYED ZOMBIELAND BEFORE?

    See the following video tutorial here. The main mechanics in the video are the same. However, you will start with less skills in this version of the event!

    If you can't watch the music version, here's one with the music stripped out.

    YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FAQ INFORMATION IN THE VIDEO CAPTION! IT IS NOT OUR RESPONSIBILITY IF THINGS GOING WRONG BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!


    ZOMBIELAND FAQ

    Q: Do I need to bring a finished character, regs and stuff for this?
    A: No, a character is provided with a particular starting skill set and gear.


    Q: Can I wear special clothing into the event?
    A: Yes you can, but by doing so, you accept full responsibility for the clothing if it goes missing. We will not replace lost clothing.


    Q: How do I chat with other players?
    A:Type [ZC MESSAGEGOESHERE


    Q: Do I need to toggle my skills and stats to up?
    A: Yes. There is no skill cap while in zombieland. All of your skills start very low and you must train them up.


    Q: What keys do I need to bind?
    A: You must bind !1 through !9 to your directional numbered keypad located near your right hand. Bind !1 to 1 and so on.


    Q: Why am I attacking so slow? I can't even kill a single zombie!
    A: This event relies on an arcade-like approach to fighting where you actually have to AIM your attacks. All weapons attack super slow by default for this event because you can say !1, !2, !3, etc up to !9 to attack in that direction (as shown in the video). You can swing quite fast this way, but the slower the weapon, the slower you swing. If you try to swing too fast, you simply create extra delay for yourself.


    Q: When I press any key, Razor always executes the same macro.
    A: This is a Razor glitch that happens every once in a while. Unfortunately the only solution that I have found is to restart your computer.


    Q: What do I do if I spawned on a cliff or in a wall and can't get out?
    A: Say "I don't want to live" and you will respawn. YOU MUST INCLUDE THE APOSTROPHE (i.e. "I dont want to live" will NOT work!)


    Q: Where do I get gear?
    A: Gear spawns on zombies and corpses, with a low chance to spawn magical weapons and armor (NOTE: WEAPONS AND ARMOR MUST BE ID'ed USING Item Identification SKILL FOR YOU TO GET THE BONUS!)


    Q: Why do I only spawn with 5 bandages?
    A: The zombie apocalypse happened fast and you didn't have time to prepare for it, sorry.


    Q: I just keep dying over and over and over.
    A: Yes, lots of casualties happen in a zombie apocalypse... BUT eventually you will be somebody who happened to appear in a more defensible position and you will be able to get a foothold and survive (and after getting some gear and possibly friends, zombies will be a much smaller threat)!


    Q: What can I do about the gank squads running around killing me a lot.
    A: Some players decide to hunt other players, and this is allowed. Teaming up is your best bet. Remember, skills aren't lost when you die, so you are always progressing!


    Q: Are there any mounts?
    A: No mounts at all!

    Loving this event but having an issue. I've now found two maps to cache chests but every time I try to open them it crashes my client :( Any thoughts?

    Little bit of feedback for the battles event: way wayyyyy too much "heavy" spawn.

    In past zombie events there were times when there wasn't enough. Looks like we went too far the other direction :p

    I've never been able to use the maps.

    And yeah spawn is heavy but I also think less people are playing.

    Zombies?
    As in undead?
    As in not living anymore?
    As in reanimated corpses?
    As in Ultima Online is turning my brain into mush?
    Oh shit, I am the zombie.
    Do I need to run?

    @Skye Wolfbane, it seems like the map is more for your own use. You double click a green shovel and click the map. You then bury the chest and can dig it back up by using the green shovel and clicking on the spot that you burried it.

    What I'm ASSUMING is that this is so that if you build up a nice cache of equipment that you don't want to lose, bury it somewhere and if you die, just get a green shovel and get your stuff back. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but that seems to be the idea.

    @Deadpool Yes, run far away :p

    You don't have to click on the map to bury your cache. I personally don't use the map.

    Right on Kilike, thanks for the info. I buried a chest before I eventually logged so here's to hoping I pop up in the same spot when I log back in, ideally without swarms of the undead about, lol.

    Long enough to be a freaking blast but not so long as to cause burn out. Early Friday evening to early Sunday morning? That's ballpark.

    Excellent job staff. Thank you for the fun filled weekend ;)
