OP  12/26/12 2:31:18 AM#1
This is just a warning for new player's you might wanna ethier wait till Jan 7th to play or be brave and play anyways. Or better yet join a cabal. Reason I'm saying all this is because Mayan's are spawning everywhere even in safe zones or near important npc's on Soloman island. The Mayan Event is geart there is a lot to do and tons of cool event prize's you can get for killing them or the new World Boss's which are beast even a Mayan theme Instance. But killing Mayans early on is going to be extremely diffcult alone as they will spawn when your fighting boss's or complating missions they keep spawning it's like fighting that greek monster with the 7-8 heads anyways. You can just run away and wait for them to despawn. But if you try to tackle them on your own I'm afaird it will turn new player's away. The game is Solid and wondeful hell I love play it everyday I just don't want new player's coming unknowing that it's the end of the world. Sorry I know this was really long.

Because i can.

This is a silly post. 

It should read...

Silly n00bies... DON'T ATTACK CREATURES THAT DON'T ATTACK YOU FIRST.

Really... and to be honest, the first couple groups of mayans are easy (I just started back playing 2 weeks ago, this is something I know very well).  If you're a n00b and you see something that is RED to you or is GIANGANTIC to you... don't be dumb and try to attack it.

Problem solved.

Not Exactly, the Mayans spawn in the middle of other groups sometimes.. or just completely random, and you can hit them accidently, and some are aggro.

 

BTW Calling everyone N00b's is pretty lame my friend. And that is the last I will say about that.

LOL I am not going to even tell you how many times damn thing killed me. It's easy to say don't attack something which does not aggro you if you are in the middle of the fight and damn thing spawns between your legs /grin.

It is annoying LOL but adds some inpredictablility. So far I have a lot of fun in game... going to be my second favorite MMO /grin

This is the answer.  The "Charred Mayan Rune" will make angry Mayan Zombies spawn on you if you use one.  If you have a little skull icon in your buffs that says you've angered something, turn it off.  

That at least solves a little of the problem.  

The next advice, if you're out missioning, you'll have no issue, but do not loiter around zone entrances (by Agartha portals)  and AOE, and you should have no issues.

Spelling and grammar do matter.I find your lack of real-life skills disturbing.

Watching my sister and brother-in-law start playing yesterday, I concluded that it is best to accept the Mayan side mission even if you don't plan to immediately pursue it. That first Mayan always shows up as aggro and attacks. Once you accept the mission, you only get Servant of One Death types constantly popping up. Attacking and AoEs will set them off, but at least they are not innately aggro.

Yea the game can be kinda hard as is and its annoying with the Mayan's invading.  I used to solo carpathean fangs but since the event won't leave home without another person just because of how many times I've accidently got myself killed.

^ Good advice here -- you can also run a bit off from the spwan point and the Mayans won't follow if u haven't AOE'd yet.  It will be interesting out in the zones until Jan 7!

this event is full of win, even more fun than the halloween event!
 
Since I started on launch I'm well geared, can solo each of the mayan spawns without big trouble, except the giant 270K Hp one. But with a friend helping those are going down too :)
 
just killed the 3 giant harbingers in a raid group, that was EPIC.
 
got the final lore #5 from the quetzal bird.
 
two more achievements to go, waiting for the dungeon cooldown...

Here is why I love TSW:

LotRO, GW1, GW2, etc. all had the standard, and once-loved, cutesy holiday themed events.

In TSW, we get Mayan zombies.

Well, to be fair, the former are based on real life holidays, while TSW was based on the so called "apocalypse" that was supposedly going to happen on 12/21/2012 (obviously false) based on the Mayan Calendar (which turned out to be some else entirely). Besides, TSW still has some Christmassy stuff in the store.
