    CN servers are all PvP so you can't expect them to modify this because we aren't even supposed to have PvE servers to begin with.

    Really sux to be on a pve server. Astral Shine in my opinion is probably the best event we have right now in terms of pure enjoyment. Only way it gets bad is if the OP teams decide to raid your base but usually they like to go after the other OP guilds for bragging rights. It's more fun than territory wars because you don't have to worry about spending half the time on a friggin snail transport cart and stealing from other bases like a ninja troll is priceless :D

    A new NPC will spawn near the your guild Statue half an hour before the event starts so at 14:30. At 15:00 he will have a quest for everyone to gather 15 meteorites and 30 light something (that's for after the event finishes, guild leader can start something similar to a campfire there where you can get exp up to 30 times).

    I never had to start it. It started on its own after 30mins (15mins collection 15mins turning in). Did I miss something or was the light what you were talking about? o.o

    The light thing is like a mini campfire, every 5 seconds you get exp. You can get exp up to 30 times, then the quest is completed. It can be started by your guild leader during the turning in time. If your leader didn't turn it on, well that's why you never saw it.

    Brief Guide:

    1st part, take quest from NPC near your guild statue, then you have 15 min to get meteorites from other guild bases. There's a selection of guilds who will have meteorites dropped on their bases though, not all, and they're mentioned in system chat. During this part entrance fee to those guilds is free, and you auto flag entering those guild bases.

    2nd part starts after 15 min, you go back to your base and right click those meteorites near your guild statue. This lasts 15 min as well (sigh... too long imo)

    3rd part a light spawns at your guild statue, stay near it to receive good exp for 5 minutes (like campfire)


    That's pretty much it, I wish the PvP part would last longer though :<

    I was impressed with this part. A few of us thought we would have to go red defending, which would be easily exploited. I also agree it did not last long enough. It was fun for the 15 mins it lasted though.

    why you need to "protect" anything in your base
    not like it would make any difference

    you collect from other base, deliver in your own, and wait for light to give exp
    at lv80 its about 80-100 mil exp for 5 minute work

    +20 dedication for freaking 5 minute work

    and you still find reasons to **** about it

    You leave your base, fly to another base, and enter. You bypass any entrance fees there may be. Then Fly to the lower level of the base and click on the Meteorites. They sparkle so you'll know what to click on when you are there. They take awhile to respawn. Make sure you have a lot of inventory space, like 10+ slots, because they do not stack.

    Exit freedom harbor onto the kalaries map. Press M. Fly to one of the gold house shaped things on map. If you hover over them on map it shows you which guilds are located in that base area.

    You don't go to freedom harbor, you go to your guild trackstone. Then you click the trackstone, choose a base, and hit enter.

    I don't think that this needs "fixing" on a PvE server. That's kinda the whole point of a non PvP server.

    Astral Shine on a PvE server just becomes a team based things where everyone spreads out and grabs relics, and head back to the statue to reap the rewards of the teamwork.

    Seems to work fine on PvE servers the way it is. If you want PvP, go play on a PvP server. A large majority on people on PvE servers are there because they don't like PvP, so why try to make a PvE server into a PvP server. You'll just push away all the people who enjoyed it for what it is, non-PvP. If you want to do PvP, go to a PvP server.

    You mean other than unimportant stuff like XP, up to 20 Dedi, and benefits for your guild? Absolutely nothing. You want to kill people, go to a PvP server. You knew what you were signing up for when you joined a PvE server so stop complaining.
