Pie fights!

The final tasks for the Heavy Metal event were made accessable all at once today. Most of them take place inside the Reikland Factory scenario, which - when it pops - is fun carnage. It's clear by now that you only need 12/14 tasks to flag your account for the final reward. To be honest i stoped bothering after i got my cloak, i have no interest in testing the new classes as i won't play them. The cloak reward is great! It looks unique and the "use" ability has only a cooldown of 2min. A guildie confirmed you can take the rank 35 cloak even if you're lower level - so it might be worth getting that one, saving it for later. The paperdoll UI did not reflect the -3% being critted chance from the cloak. Either that stat is broken or it's just another UI flaw. I bugged it, we'll see what gives...

One of the fun parts is that you can pick up pies (Gravybombs) all over the RF scenario and throw them at other players. While i think they could have added a cooler animation when hit and a sound, its funny nontheless. And who knows... if you try hard enough, you might get "marked" by pie, if you know what i mean... some stains you never can get rid off. ;) I'll definately go back later and throw some more... to complete my assassination training.


In addition, i added two more little helper addons to my list: AllianceRosterFix fixes the display issue in the alliance roster UI (why are there so many flawed UI elements that are bugged? Can't Mythic put some trainee on the job to fix them? Sheesh.). Show Health Percent adds a percentage to enemy/friendly targets - useful to coordinate fights when eg. bosses spawn adds or similar at certain HP levels.

Got my cloak yesterday, and it certainly looks unique. Only thing that disappointed me where the stats, looks like the stats are the same for every class.
Now some more chicken killing and figuring out how to fire that damned canon, and I'm almost ready to play the Black Guard :)

Cannon? You mean the "Detonate the Steam Tank Ammo" task? It's a barrel in the back of the large steam tank room, you click it and it will detonate.

Are you suggesting that if one throws that pie a certain number of times that it bestows a title?

Thanks Thulf, found it, I indeed meant the "Detonate the Steam Tank Ammo" objective.

Not throwing a certain number... check my title in the "Rotten Places" post in the first pic. I think you might be able to guess what needs to be done. ;)
