General information about Southsun Survival Event

When the event starts you will find limited resources around big bone fire, in Southsun Cove, like arrow, rations, camouflage kit, throwing dagger, alarm trap and more. After 3-5 seconds, you can run and try to collect these rations and face many enemies in close combat, or just run away and try to find rations on other places.

Goal of Southsun Survival is to survive 15 minutes. This is rather difficult due to couple of aggravating circumstances. Your 1 000 health pool for example is depleting constantly, this makes hiding at one spot almost impossible since you should look for rations that can be used for your healing skill. Every resource you use, depletes one of the same resource. You can see their numbers above the skills, to the right from large circle health bubble. Resources are at the open, or hidden inside rations fruit bushes, or supply camps. The creatures of Southsun Cove slowly move in from the beaches, be sure to check the status of a camp before you enter or you may find a deadly serving of karka.

Revenge Spirit, Mist Form, Traps

If you die during the first 2 minutes you will be able to resurrect again, but after that, your death will cause revenge spirit form – Mist Walkers, that no one else but other revenge spirit form players can see. Once in this form, there are still things to do. Collecting revenge motes is one of these things. Collecting them allow you to use one of the five skills, like:

  1. Traps that summon Champion Karka
  2. Traps that can drop all resources (others can collect them as well)
  3. Alarm Trap that cause Map Alert Signal that other revenge spirits can see, and inflict damage to moving player inside the bright glowing trap.

This actions counts toward end match board and your score.
