Treasure Troves of the Thunder King

What?

Okay, hear me out.
When you did the Treasure Troves of the Thunder King on Blizzard's servers, you might've enjoyed it.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, the basic concept is this: You get given five minutes to pillage the Throne of Thunder.
All from underneath the Thunder King's nose, and his servants, trolls, traps and saurok thieves, before his citadel's spires.
I'm sure you'd find a video out there that runs through the scenario. But now, I propose to you this:

You can do this event, acquire gold for your efforts, in a fairly well adopted version of the Treasure Troves.
Not only that, you can do it alone as it was originally made, or as a group of five people. Once a week. If you have a key.
There is a leaderboard that values how well you did, or how efficient your run was. Each chest drops Historical Parchments. Those are your overall points.
Now of course I would prefer you don't cheat. If I see any command use inside the Treasure Troves, you will be disqualified and your gold reward will be moot.


The Key can usually be found in fairly concealed Troves found around the island, but alternatively Dungeon Masters may award them
for good performance in an event. Armed with one, you will need to contact me and head to the Shado-Pan Hideout on the Isle of Thunder.
I'll know if it's a legit key or not, so don't try using .additem and being a cheeky little so and so.


And I know the server may lag, and the mechanics may seem cheap, wonky and out of place, as amateurish of a final product as it could be,
but everyone will be sharing in that regard, so it will all be balanced in the end. Don't think of it as a competition, think of it as a little fun game.
Have fun!

It's not that difficult to get a key. They can drop from the rares, they can be obtained from the golden treasure boxes (there's five that are scattered around the island at all times, spawned at random locations) and DMs who host events for the Isle of Thunder are allowed to infrequently hand them out.

 

All in all, they're a good reason to go out into the Isle and do things instead of just sitting in your faction's base.

You probably could Frog, I ain't bothered about that.

 

As for the event itself, it's a minigame but you do it ICly, just you don't get the time to emote. So instead of typing, make your actions be the emotes. I'm sure you can convey that through your emotes after the events done, and be able to retell how well it went.

I don't see much point to this, but alright.

Because it's a part of Isle of Thunder. Completely optional, and a very easy event for me to run - what, fifteen minutes?

 

I also enjoyed putting it together because half of what I did in there is what helps make Isle of Thunder more vivacious right now.

 

In other news, the first group gave it a try out today.

Very fun, I recommend giving it a try if you're hesitant. It's unusual for an RP setting but the minigame is interesting.

Just a bump - if you do actually get a key just poke me on Skype/Discord and I'll hop in game at the next earliest convenience to host the event for you.

The course changes every now and then with chests in different places so it's not always the same.

Just to clarify incase that above remark is confusing - Troves of the Thunder King, the chests on the Isle of Thunder, have 60 set spawn locations and presently only 6 of them are ever spawned at any given time.

 

Inside the Treasure Troves of the Thunder King Scenario, all objects are always there. The only difference that could possibly exist between one run and the next is the position NPCs are at in their patrol when the gates open.
