It was a peaceful evening, people were waiting for Stratos to bring down the servers, almost maintenence time, me and a few friends were just chatting by v5 arena, waiting for the Disconnected, we finally got the message, and right as the pointer hit the hour mark everyone but my party disappeared, and we were teleported into the middle of a whole new map, we'd never seen anything like it before.
It was a cave, or maybe underground, we decided to stick together, votes decided i'd lead the way, as i had the most HP + rezz scroll, as we kept going deeper we started hearing this creepy noise, almost as if it was a thousand bats coming our way.
We were just before a sharp turn, a lot of light coming from it, i asked my friends to wait, i would go invisible and check if it was save, so i did, as i turned the corner there it was, thousands of angry foxes, way over our current cap level, my invis was too weak, they saw right through it, i ran back while yelling to get ready.
The battle started, keron scrolls, ninjas, sleep AOE, those deadlines, it seemed like there was no end to the foxes, after we were down to our last meds and everyone was completly out of mana we heard an even louder noise, it was a giant fox, bigger than compra itself.
I turned arround , telling my friends to run, i had a plan, we saw a place where we could hide for a few seconds, as soon as i got there i reached for my Recall Scroll. few seconds later i arrived in a city i'd never seen before, first thing i did was hit my party recall, all my friends appeared where i was, everyone was safe, for now.
We looked arround town but it was a complete desert, not a single living soul, we stumbled however into new gears, which were hundreds of times stronger than our old one, we all changed equipment, and we saw the cave entrance was the only way out of the town, so we decided to go for the giant fox. we already knew the way we were going after a couple minutes of walking, was the same path we had already done.
We heard the fox again, we had the strategy planned out, the Templar would damage link me, i would use throw dagger to get it closer, the witch would spam stone, if that failed we would use keron.
Great start, however the fox was immune to any debuff, we pressed keron. OH NO! he's immune to keron! New plan, get all ur hp up, have the cleric spamming barrier on me! , i went head to head with the fox, as soon as i hit my deadline i saw how strong it was, it's hp didnt even move. we started all atacking together, the barrier, some meds, and the cleric heals were keeping me alive, but just barely, the tk dmg link was doing its work, but even he was dying from how strong the fox was, after 30 minutes of fighting we had taken about 70% of its hp, and we were running out of potions to use, gladly the cleric had 100% mp cosnump and 100% cast, my veteran's composure was letting me keep the aggro, thankfully, a few minutes later, as we were about to kill it, the servers came up, the fox laughed and we were teleported back to juno, all our new gear was gone, thankfully we kept our old one.
We went into the arena once again to talk about what had happened and we all had one word written in our hands, when put together it said " Next maintenence it will not be just me!"
