I think Ratbeard is just gonna stand back and giggle maniacally and watch you try.

If even HE can't solo it how do you possibly think you can

Hmm.. Ratbeard hasn't made a post in a while, which means he is busy, right? Busy is always good for us players..

Oooh, I too am hitting that tower solo at some point.....that is, so low I am eating dirt!

Ratbeard, never tell a stubbornly, proud pirate they can not accomplish something. I shall prevail or go down in the most splendid blaze of glory ever witnessed!

I would not want to discourage anybody from trying to solo it-- more power to you!

But I will say again: It is designed for group play. Not only is it more difficult than any other challenge presented so far, that also means there are rewards (Group Plunder Chests) that you'll have to pass up along the way.

But definitely try it!

Well Ratbeard, I surely want to do the designers at KI proper justice and first try the dungeon the way it was meant to be played. I may be a stubbornly, proud pirate-- but I also wasn't dropped on my head more than three times either. If there be better pirate booty to be had through group play, then you best believe that I won't be passing up the chance to grab it! Momma didn't raise no fool...nope, for that it took years of self-training! Group plunder here I come!

But absolutely, I will be trying it solo as well-- hopefully until I succeed!

jeez, every time i see you post on this thread i get super excited. i know the answer to this is probably a very familiar sounding " I dont talk dates " from another infamous KI marauder, but i feel it is worth asking: any possible time frame to be given for the release of the tower? i know we just had that massive update, so it probably wont be coming for a while, but still . . .

Sorry, my Rat-ey friend, but I had school- and I had to study. How about we plan the party for this weekend- Saturday the 16th, a week from the new season of Doctor- Sorry, Professor Who? First Test Realm realm, whatever that may be, 4-5 p.m. eastern time?

Aww, I can't get the test realm to download! I guess I'll have to use the 'dinosaur' ( now all I have to do is remember how to hook it up! )

Well, it seems that the tower is finally ready to be tested in the Test Realm; I've just tried it out myself. I'm not going to reveal anything about what you'll face in there, I'm just going to give all of you some advice:
DO NOT GO IN THERE ALONE
If you think the Armada is terrible, after this you'll find yourself wanting to surrender to them for a little Rest and Relaxation. Listen to Ratbeard, the tower is meant to be entered in groups, and full groups with all max level pirates at that. Again, I'm not trying to reveal exactly what is in there, but never let it be said that I didn't give a fair "Watch Out".

Hey I asked this before, but I don't think anyone saw it. Is this party going to be in the Test Realm or the Live Realm?

Ratbeard!!!Didn't i specifically tell you not to release this while I was away!?

Oh ,I told you mot to release it,it's in the test realm.Nice loophole.

Anyways,do you guys mind moving this to when it goes live?

Also,can you guys please change the time to maybe 4:00PM,that's probably the latest I can get on...

Man,I hate being so needy,''don't skip tge dialogue'',''wait for me before entering the tower'',''rub contrariwise,not clockwise'',''pat the back of the head''

Anyways,can we PLEASE move it?!?

I'll be back home sometime next week,around thursday.

You and I, lets make a date to tackle it! I have all classes maxed out, let me know what class you want me to use. We'll bring a couple of friends and then - VICTORY OR DEATH ( or as Dead Mike might say; "Victory AND death!" ).

Weekends are reserved for my little Ratling-- sorry!

And don't forget, I get to sit at my desk and play all day! At work!

Yarr!

SO how were we supposed to find you? What realm? I was there and had a BLAST. OK we need a bit more info from you.

I think the party should wait for live realm release although I am dying to meet up with Ratbeard and Test Realm is just fine with me.

Some of the players can't do test realm so we should wait for live realm release.
