Thread: Where all the elephants at?

  1. #1

    Default Where all the elephants at?

    Server six is about a month from endgame and I have yet to see one. I have looked near large players and small, in oases raided daily for weeks and those that have never been touch. I am beginning to think they are mythical.

    I have only attacked elephants once, check in in 50% wheat oases that have never been raided. That's the only place I ever saw them.

    50% middle of nowhere, never been raided:

    92 Rats
    61 Snakes
    40 Crocodiles
    32 Tigers

    Iron middle of nowhere, never been raided:

    89 Rats
    48 Spiders
    46 Bats

    Wood middle of nowhere, never been raided:

    32 Wild Boars
    29 Wolves
    20 Bears

    25% wheat middle of nowhere, never been raided:

    22 Rats
    25 Snakes
    15 Bears
    7 Tigers

    ....


    I am getting sick of copy/paste. Suffice to say the animals are weak.

    EDIT: The few oases unclaimed right around the origin have about the same populations. Animals on server six are weaklings.

    Did you check any out in the boonies but by someone, out of curiosity? It might make a difference that the oasis I hit was on speed server, it was past natars getting released I think.

    Edit: just looked closer at your numbers, pretty sure rats were 110+, so you still have a ways to go.

    Has anyone actually seen an elephant on a non-speed server? I am beginning to think that is the only place they show up.

    OK, so we are now looking for sightings of the fabled elephant on a .us non-speed server.

    I offer a 10k resource bounty if someone can show me one on server six, but I'll take any US server.

    A few people on US1 reported elephant sitings back a couple weeks ago - unfortunately I believe all the ones that had been reported are no more.

    US1 should have natars released very shortly after the Christmas truce is completed.

    I don't remember on mine, it was season 2 of .usx. I am pretty sure it was around 3 or 4 though, certainly no more then that.

    You have got to be kidding me...

    1 year ago, I found 10 in one oasis. I think it was a big crop bonus one... a.k.a 50%.

    82 Spiders
    42 Wild Boars
    40 Elephants <-- Elephants. I'll take my reward now, thank you.

    Dang, I just decided to check on my speed account, found this 7 squares away from a village:

    Iron Oasis
    Units:
    36 Rats
    17 Spiders
    11 Bats
    8 Elephants

    I was pretty surprised, since I had only seen elephants before with much higher amounts of other units, so I had to post it since we were just talking about it.

    Just found an oasis on S6 with 25 elephants.
    Surrounded by people though, it's weird...It was the first unconquered oasis I found around me.

    Still got that 10k bounty up for grabs? Send me a PM and we'll exchange names.

    What a coincedence. I JUST saw noticed an oasis 2 days ago that had elephants (on s6) and it was the first one I had seen. Don't remember the coordinates though.

    I have seen them ... Generally they appear in oases that get raided a ton, but most of those are close to the center and oases there are VERY hard-won.

    See I found one. I hunted it too. It was trying to protect a oasis.
    Pictures or it didn't happen.

    Blake, he wants a US server. As in .us, not .com.

    You will note that the bounty was for server 6 only.

    You were the first person to find it. I have PMed you, but I haven't heard the coordinates of the elephants or what your IGN is. You have another day to get me the info or it goes to someone else since...

    ...we did get someone with confirmed elephants on server 6. Do you know what is special about this spot? It doesn't seem any different than any of the other oases around it, yet this is the only one with elephants I've seen. It seems pretty weird, random, and rare. If Jenks524 doesn't get back to me to prove his claim in a day, the prize goes to you.

    I'm almost 100% positive that the animals get stronger as the pop of the nearby villages increases. I'm not sure exactly how this is calculated, but what it means is that if you are looking out in the middle of nowhere, you're not going to find elephants.

    Except that the nature near the biggest players right near the origin is about the same as that in the boonies, and the one confirmed elephant sighting on server six has had not players anywhere near it.
