Pre-mass Invasion Checklist
Since our objective is to maintain maximum pressure at all times on the farmers I recommend all participants take the following actions before the 24 hr mass invasion period:
1. Stock-up on consumables and items - humanity,clumps, blossoms, divine blessings,resins, poison knifes,Lloyds,cracked eyes, EoDs,etc;
2. Complete any leveling you have been planning in order to round-out your toon;
3. Complete any weapon and armor upgrades you have been working on;
4. Obtain any sorceries, miracles and pyromancies on your wish list;
Special Requests During Mass Invasion
- If possible, forest invaders should drop Eyes of Death for the Gravelords participating in the mass invasion and then Black Crystal out – EoDs are a very important resource needed in order to actively gravelord and is not the easiest item to farm. GLs can be easily recognized by the smoky black aura around their center of mass.
- Forest Hunter

Greetings to all of my forest hunters, GraveLords and Forest Darkwraiths – this thread is to provide information on the upcoming mass forest invasion to really show campers we will take back the forest - at least for a little while.
This event is planned for Sat, Mar 24th - this is so the mass invasion doesn't interfere with a FC event occurring on Sat, Mar 17th.
I plan to set-up a voice conf. bridge (for US based players) and chat session (either Yahoo Chat or Google chat - for US and non-US players) so we can have centralized control and communications. We will also try to maintain a kill list using the white board functionality within the chat session.
This event should allow lower level forest hunters to be able level-up in the covenant, GraveLords to amass EoDs from kills & gifting from other forest invaders and Forest Darkwraiths to gain new found humanity. Also, all invaders should be able increase their PVP experience for dealing with 3v1, 2v1, 1v1v1, etc situations.
I will be updating this top post with all pertinent information (conf. bridge #, chat session URL, etc to allow members in the covenants noted above to join in on the fun.
Anyone having specific ideas to ensure the success of this event - please post - all ideas will be evaluated and considered.
More information will be provided as soon as it become available.
