The Silithid threat is upon us, and you can check the status of our war effort via the link above. For easy access, you can also click on "Ahn'Qiraj" from the top menu of ShadowsongEurope.com.

Due to the huge server population imbalance, the Alliance war effort will progress much faster than the Horde. To alleviate this somewhat, Core of Insight will offer a transfer service to the Horde. If you have excess supplies that can be used as Horde turn-ins, you can send them to "Olbanker" (one of the COI banker chars) who will transfer them to trusted Horde guilds.

Credit to Chonar for the graphics.

For Azeroth!

2% in the first day? Pretty nice, this pace won't keep up though.

Is there any way people donating goods to the Horde effort (or even vice-versa) could somehow be renumerated for their efforts? IE, I'm sure I or any level 60 Alliance Mage could quickly ramp up the Wool bandage quota through Stockade runs, but we may lose heart and start dreaming of Epic Tiger Mounts.

And could Shadowsong in general consider assigning (for those who volunteer) specific people to specific tasks? It'll help the difficult objectives pass quicker that way, and some tasks will virtually complete themselves anyway.

id be more than happy too help transferring, im no stranger too it and Ill happily work with OTD and any other horde guilds wnating too contribute. just message me on here, or bolero.

-edit- gonna talk with DS tomorrow and a few other guild leaders on horde. If I arrange a bank char like you have we could open a trade route via gadget, all on horde who have spare mats can send me full stacks of items we can't hand in, I send them stacks of something we can from Ally side, Ill happily arrange something like this, if anyone on horde will support this please comment at least, it's easy too get these gates open if we all work together imo and Like I say we have a shitload of stuff on horde you guys could turn in, question is....can you trust a cow?

You do know that there's a guy by all the hand-in people who will tell you how the horde are doing? (and equally there's a dwarf on a ram in orgrimmar).

Its a cool thing this and all, however, the donated stuff from alliance side should be divided among the bigger guilds/alliances on horde-side for the best division of reputation.

If for example OTD and FTH are involved, 50 % to each side. One has to think of it in a marketing value also, as the rep from handins itself is valuable.

And Proterra, lets talk on MSN before you do anything on behalf of OTD so all are informed.

Many tnx.

no shit sherlock.

and tau no worries i'm not doing anything on behalf of OTD im doing on behlaf of all hordes, the people in OTD are people I will ask too send in things ally can hand in so stop worrying about me taking any leader form in this =P

as for division I would do it on a basis of recording who sends how many stacks, for every full stack of something they hand in they get a full stack back, either we do it that way or we get maybe an officer from each guild too sort out donations from the guild work together and keep updated each other who has what, im sure it can all be worked out sensibly. as for cooking..im gonna don my kiss the cow apron soon and learn :/

Update:

http://www.irksome-invaders.com/work/forumimages/AQ-progress-2.gif

...now on which way to calculate the effort which I changed a bit here now I use: ((all submitted) divided by (all needed)) for each fraction to achive the 'Total progress' which seems to get a correct number (the alliance needs 2442000 items and has handed in 249940 which amounts to ~10% of the effort needed and not ~15% as shown on
http://www.shadowsongeurope.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=24&Itemid=36 ...or am I wrong here?)

Regarding the mod above, I've checked it out and it seems to be way too much manual work involved to warrant using it. It's easier to input the data manually.

Psonica
09-01-2006, 09:57 AM
The last calculation I did a few minutes ago shows us at a total progress for EU-Shadowsong of 17.66% which means we did get more than 10% this weekend ... sitting around with over 200 signets I know I wasn't on the lazy side and reports from the guild tells me that the creatures in Winterspring now are posting a petition to stop us from skinning them over and over again. ;)

Nice! Wonder how often they update though since last I looked in-game (30 mins ago) Alliance had gathered more than 50% of the needed Runecloth bandages (and I was handing another 60) and the webpage shows us at 46% ....they are missing 20k bandages! What an outrage!

No, really ... nice to see some official numbers

Akrea
10-01-2006, 07:07 AM
Good to see, but what i don't like is the fact that horde has quite a lot less then alliance, not that i suspected anything else, but still, having like 8-10% while alliance have that much more, i mean 7% food vs. 40% food just aint fair... makes me think that we might not get too see AQ opened by players, but by cenarion circle.

That is what happens after a while, isn't it?

I think we have the shange to open it, if the alliance get done and horde still need more, must all the alliance farm with the horde. and send it to olbanker.

"Starts gathering", we've no idea at what pace. Most likely another couple of weeks at least till its full.

Also, the main excuse for not farming the wolves is that they haven't got the recipe since its limited. Well, I have the recipe if someone would like it. I'd use it myself but tbh we all know how much I play my hordie. Please only take it though if you really plan on farming a good amount of it.

And yes i'll change the link.

Bah ... we were doing so well (2nd among the english servers in europe) then Blizzard cockblocks us with 24h downtime and we are down on 5th place (all the servers that passed us weren't involved in the dataceneter relocation).

What the alliance needs most of seems to be linnen bandages so all you 'locks and mages go out to a low level area and start AoE :)

You darn lvl 60's should start grinding linen! Linen is the only bandage kind we still need lots of, the silk can be done by normal peeps. Imagine the whole of CoI doing solo runs to DM... Imagine all the linen! Imagine all the bandages! Imagine the jump of bandages percentages!

Oh, and all of you evul skinners: Start skinning the lowlevels!! we're only 64% done with Light Leather!!

As I've said before; the two best places to grind linen cloth are: Ragefire Chasm, where you can get quite the lot (like 4-5 stacks) per run. The other place is around 33, 33 Westfall. level 12-13s with a wicked spawn timer. I myself is considering going there with my 39 mage, as I have heard of people getting over 1k (!!) Linen a day at that place.

Me and Magnar spent a little over an hour here and got about 1k linen, you can actually not loot fast enough here. A hunter can kill about 30-40 mobs here per minute. Looting them however take time (not to talk about the bandage making). Best of if you want to go here is to have one ranged attacker (pref hunter since one auto-shot kill the mob, and he can go on forever) and 2-3 people running around looting.

It is however not linen we need most now, and since the server gather each resource with the same % each day, we should consentrate on the resources with the lowest %.

I did the windmill spot in Westfall the other day, got around 500 linen in an hour before I was bored mindless. I'm guessing you can get up to 1500 linen an hour if you are 3-4 people there, as the the spawn timer is determined by how fast you kill them there.

Will CoI just open the gate as soon as we have all the mats or will they wait for the weekend or somin so we can all attend?

I have read that in the US servers some guilds have just gone and opened it without telling the rest of the server.

Would like to attend the opening if I can... sure im not alone.

Only problem is, if the whole server shows up for the opening, there will be no more server, cause it will have caught fire and burned down the blizz offices..... I'm not sure if they actually have to do some fighting when it opens, except for the Hive's and stuff, but if they do, it would be to the servers best interest if they didn't lag to death. Besides, it's said that the whole server will face the wrath of the qiraj when the gates are opened.

I've been putting the amounts of resources that are still needed on the horde side into a spreadsheet for the past week, so that I can do some charting and see how it's going.

At our current rate of progress it'll be 2 weeks (13 days) before we have enough lean wolf steaks.

Wool bandages and peacebloom aren't doing that much better, either :(

Can confirm that - it's where the very first lean wolf steaks for war effort came from - but the respawn rate there is not really enough to support one 60 farming;(

Kill the spiders there too, I'm pretty sure there's a chance wolves will respawn in their place. It seemed just right for me after that.

Shadowfang Keep, even though fun and sometimes profitable to run, is rather poor on the lean wolf flank drops.

Once the mats have been gathered it takes 5 days (I think) for the caravan to get to silithus, so it can't be this weekend.

Next weekend maybe ... since (war effort complete) + 5 days = possible opening of the gates. If we stress it a bit and finish today then there is a possibilty to open the gates from wednesday/thursday ...right? Maybe some Core of Insight:er can provide more information....
