Towers - Guide ?

Post by Birrdie » Thu Aug 05, 2010 2:50 am

Any guide that deal the basic Towers froobness ?
Like i dont know **** about how to attack tower and when i atacked one, i couldnt even dent him.

I noticed that i can now enter Towers shop and buy all sorts of items that i dont have clue what any of that do, so please, any help for how to get me started will be appreciated.

If there is one guide like this here, im sorry for openin this thread. I couldnt find it because all deal with litlle advanced tower warfare.. thats what i thought, at least.

Tnx. Pigmurdr.

Tower attacks are not a solo thing to do - unless your character is "twinked" to be able to sustain long term damage and dish out damage as well.

Your best bet is to find a "warring" organization and follow along on their battle campaigns.

With lvl 62 Advy i thought i can at least try too kill one,
And sorry, i know that you mean the best but that really isnt answer im lookin too

Only somethin like buy this and this , use this on yourself..etc , so you can be able to attack the tower,

when i atacked tower all my dmg was 0, and i think hud said me that i cant attack tower or.. i dont quite remember but i remember that with my equipment i was unable to do even 1 dmg to him.

Tnx

There are two paths you can take.
If you are in an organization with towers, you can attack other organizations' towers.
If you are in an organization without towers or not in any organization at all, you will need to purchase a shield disabler (can't recall the exact name at the moment), you use that to disable shields before even being allowed to attack.

Towers follow the same level restrictions as PVP. You can only attack within your level range.

Towersites are attackable only at certain periods when the gas suppression is below 25% Gas suppression is goes through one cycle in a day. So you have one opportunity to attack towers and take them down per day. The time gas suppression is below 25% last approximately 3-4 hours iirc.

Someone can fill in the details, but that's the basics of it.

Oh and pvp title farmers love the opportunity to engage in people attacking towers, Attackers obviously get pvp flagged (for 4 real time hours), and pvpers will come looking for you...at the tower attack site.

You can possibly be effective with good armor and Crypt of Home weapons at your level. One thing to remember, if you mess with towers you WILL incur the wrath of the organization who owns those towers....Organizations like their org contract bonuses...and its basically as if you came into their house and stole something. Individuals set down towers for personal bonuses as well, and that person will receive alert notifications that their personal tower is being attacked and what %hp his/her tower has left.

Towers are not just some random monster in the wilderness, other players spent money and upgraded their skills to be able to plant one. Attacking a tower is making things personal.

Go to the official AO website:

http://www.anarchy-online.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Look downwars on the lefthand-side panel for the "Support" section.

In it, click "Manual"

Download the PDF manual.

Look for the chapter on "Notum Wars" (page 99).

Read and learn. :)

Great & helpful answers people, thank you :)

After what World Trader wrote, im havin a second thoughts about comin to some random towers and and be out of chewgums
Especially if that tower owner would come at that moment like i would.. in all his justice rage :D

Im kiddin, im not afraid of tower ownerz :p
But i wouldnt like to attack some random tower, il talk with this with my org.. like someone smart said in first post.

But, it seems there really isnt any basic tower guide here so.. contribute to it. Like, minimum lvl to attack one, which weps & armors are most useful.. etc, etc.


peace
