    Default Can anyone confirm the length of phase two/three?

    Earlier this week I saw some threads saying that phases two and three of the event will only be lasting a few ours on Saturday, meaning the event is going to be over on Saturday, but I have heard recently that phase two will last another week. Anyone know for sure how long the event is going to go for?

    Hopefully it goes for more than a few hours because it starts at 3am where I live (Australia) and there's no way I'm getting up that early to do it! I have a 14 month old daughter so I need the sleep. ;) I am hoping Phase 2 will go until at least the end of the weekend. Hopefully someone from Trion can confirm soon enough.

    Yea basically I need to know if I have time to save for Guise of Death or if I should just spend my stones on shade touched and pets before theyre gone.

    phase two will last a couple of hours and phase three will start immediately after phase two ends. phase two lasts as long as it takes for your server to defend the various wardstones. the vendor is supposed to be there pasted the event so you can spend the stones.

    NikoMahCousin asks: How long will phase 2 be active?
    <%AndrewK> Until players beat it, this phase will be based on player participation. It will likely last a matter of hours, depending on the server.

    If the entire event consists of a week and a half of almost nothing, then ends in 1 day I suspect that people will be peeved, and rightly so. At least knowing that up front people could attempt to schedule around it. But there has been very little "official" word on scheduling.

    I like to think of WoW as the Hindenburg, On these forums it always ends up in flames.

    Sorry to hijack the thread but does anyone know if the event starts at the same time in both the US/EU (12pm EST) or do us europeans get to start earlier at 12pm GMT?

    All it says on the quest tracker for the event is 12pm so just wondering...

    Cheers

    According to the dev chat:

    Disciple asks: Will Phase 2 start tomorrow morning, or tonight at midnight?
    <%AndrewK> tomorrow noon, PST
    <%AndrewK> on EU servers the event starts at noon GMT
    <%AndrewK> I would recommend being there on time, this phase will take a different form than the current one

    Can't remember where I saw it (maybe from the dev tracker?) but one of the devs said the US event starts at noon PACIFIC time (so 3 PM Eastern) and the EU event takes place at noon GMT.
