Tales of Pirates II: Treasure Hunt Fun

Prison Island is going to be the scene of some riotous fun on Sep. 25 when gamers take part in a massive treasure hunt in IGG’s Tales of Pirates II ( http://top2.igg.com). The gathered buccaneers are going to be tasked with hunting down rare monsters to obtain treasures for a GM. The quest event will take place at 10:00pm and last for 30 minutes, giving players little time to finish their task. The first 3 pirates to complete the quest will be each awarded the grand prize of a precious Dragon Treasure Chest.

Never mind winning the big prize; overcoming even part of the challenge won’t be an easy feat considering the awesome powers these monsters have at their disposal. The seductive Fox Spirits can beguile the toughest male buccaneers to do her bidding. Not to be outdone, the horrid Hell Corpses pose a serious threat to pirates adept in stealth, for their undead senses renders all invisibility-related skills and potions useless. Meanwhile, mages have good reason to bemoan the Hell Emissaries’ area-wide ability to knock opponents unconscious and their high attack power, making them fearsomely formidable foes.

Solo attempts to overcome the monsters will be foolish acts, as teamwork is the key to completing the treasure hunt. Each character has its pivotal role to play. The bewitching Fox Spirits can only be countered by female classes such as Sharpshooters, Seal Masters and Clerics with their long-range attacks. The grisly Hell Corpse hordes are vulnerable to magic attacks, so Voyagers will be able to wipe them out easily with their area of effect spells. Even the Hell Emissaries have their weakness, as good tankers such as Champions can resist their stuns while Crusaders use their devastating offensive prowess to annihilate the ghastly monsters. It will take a good mix of abilities and tactics for the pirates to claim victory.

Whether they are among the swiftest to overcome the treasure-hoarding monsters or not, one thing is for sure - the peg legs in Tales of Pirates II are in for a jolly good time!
