    Monkey Chef arrives for several days to Elmoreden and brings exotic flavors to freshen up this severe world.
    Event Duration


    [​IMG]


    Event Process

    1. Banana harvest in Elmoreden!

    Go hunting and pick up Banana Herb from monsters in all hunting zones. Remember that the herb won't drop in case monster’s level is lower than character’s level by 9 or more. Besides, you can’t get bananas from monsters in the Dungeon of Abyss, from raid bosses and their minions.

    [​IMG]

    Banana Herb's effect is applied right after it is picked up and gives a good buff to all party members:

    [​IMG]


    2. Meet Chef Monkey!

    Right after the maintenance Chef Monkey will appear in the main Elmoreden’s towns. Skilled cookery expert will briefly tell you about the event and offer various services for the players. Use the /target Chef Monkey command to find him easier.

    [​IMG]

    3. Chef Monkey's Bait

    The chef will tell you about unique baits he made for Elmoreden citizens. The chef appreciates his work and won’t give his goods for free. The price of one bait is 250 Adena and is not affected by a castle’s tax.

    [​IMG]

    Chef Monkey’s Bait significantly decreases fishing time (20 seconds) compared to regular bait (110 seconds). Besides, using event bait will allow you to receive more experience from fishing!

    [​IMG]

    Also, you can use High-grade Fishing XP Growth Amulet and Golden Mermaid's Luxury Fishing Rod, which you can find in the Store. Items combination increases exp gaining.
    [​IMG]

    Just take a look at that:
    [​IMG]
    *The above figures may contain some errors.
    [​IMG]

    By the way, don’t forget about the fishing shots when you’re going to fish. They increase chances of successful fishing by 40% (basic chance 40% + fishing shot 40% = 80%).
    You can catch only 1 type of fish with event bait - Tuna.

    [​IMG]

    You can exchange it to Mysterious Blessed Soulshots (fighter shots!) that will increase the damage of physical attacks! By the way, they weight 0, so you can take as many with you as you want!

    [​IMG]

    Exchange rate:

    [​IMG]

    Hurry up to stock as many Blessed Soulshots as you can because they will stay with you even after the event is over!


    4. Monkey Chef Cocktails

    Monkey Chef prepared amazing fruit cocktails using a unique secret recipe. For just 200 Spirit Ores anyone can order one of the following delicious drinks:

    [​IMG]
    Cocktail buffs do not stack with each other and do not stack with the following effects:

    – Prophecy of Fire;
    – Prophecy of Water;
    – Prophecy of Wind;
    – Chant of Victory;
    – Pa'agrio's Victory.

    You won't be able to receive these buffs as well as other cocktail's effect if you already have a cocktail effect activated.

    Important: If you use one of the prophecies with cocktail effect on, the Spirit Ores for the prophecy will disappear but the prophecy won't be applied.

    Event Tips

    1. A chance of Banana's Herb drop rate triples every day from 16:00 till 00:00 UTC+1.
    2. The effect of Banana's Herb disappears after log out.
    3. Fishing is available to characters with level 20+. Class doesn't matter.
    4. Every try during the fishing consumes 1 bait regardless of the result of fishing.

    BANANA!

    Nice.

    Thank you for wasting our times, you don't even read feedback. Like an afk lvl 20 fishing event after the last two?

    *sigh*

    Can we please have an event with no P2W component and no stand-around-town component? This is sad.

    Lets be fair:

    The shots are very expensive if you work out how much you'll spend in bait+fishing shot (141a per MSSB)
    The EXP isn't great.

    So really its a herb boost event for people who EXP mostly on mobs. Great, that's me. Thanks for the bananas guys ;)

    Remember what I told you last week.

    They literally do not care, the Koreans tell them something and they do it. We are just number not people to them.

    I'm always puzzled when people say this. Of course they do not care about us as human beings. But they sure do care about us, and our money, as customers. Happy customers are long term customers who spend on the product. Unhappy customers go elsewhere. It pays for any company to listen to its customers and do what they can to make the customers happy. NCSoft and Innova understand this as well as any other companies.

    yea just did some quick math, roughly it would take 216 days 24/7 fishing for me to ding and that is if every fishing succeeded...

    so nah told it was a side joke event, rather go do it in ~40h while having extra cov "banana herb" active
    even those mysterious shots are overpriced so no point really

    I'd rather collect bananas as drops from mobs and exchange them at the monkey for a more varied list of rewards.

    But, you know this already. We're tired of asking for farm event.

    This is a farm event, just not with the rewards you want. You have perma double prophecy if you have a 76 lvl buffer. If you do not and are newer on the server then you can fish when you are not playing to get a prophecy item and then you have double prophecy while farming.

    There are not many options for decent event on Skelth.
    I can name only one - pumpkins. Now when auto-macros are removed and afk farm is punishable (if they catch you ofc), to obtain the event items is by farm them by hands :> Not a bad deal. We cant have adena event, because this is core rule of Lineage 2. All adena comes only from killing mobs (drop) and from selling drop to NPC.

    The only thing you exchange tuna for is PvP shots.

    The cocktails you buy with 200 spirit ore.

    The banana buff and the juice nice for levelling, for those that do so whilst not standing around waiting for RBs to respawn.

    Keep in mind: with special bait, fishing is 6 times faster. That's to say: you can fish 3 times per minutes. Here is a brief calculated hr how much you need for 1 lvl, assuming all your fishing succeeded:

    And roughly it takes around 1M adena for 1 day fishing. But we can see before lvl 47, you can get at least 1 lvl per day afk legally. That's not too bad.

    To say, if you start today fully geared, 24x7 fishing, you can reach around lvl 50 when the event ends.

    Thanks for going to all this trouble, but you can fish 2 times a minute, not 3. 20 seconds fishing and 10 seconds an additional pause between casts. And not all your fishing succeeds. The best you can do is 80%.
