Oceanus and the Red Greenfish

I'd just like to give a hearty thanks and much love to Oceanus for surprising us all with the Red Greenfish! Me hearties and I were four battles into a briggy we had to abort when we got the broadcasts. We saw him announce that he spawned near Prolix and we weren't even on the Longship yet! We got there though, and caught him around Dragon's Nest. In all the excitement I don't know if any of the previous ships actually caught and beat him before we did. But we got quite the haul! Allow me to share our joy.

Here's the take from the first battle.

And then we set out and hit him again! Though that picture has pirate names in it and I forgot to blur them out or ask if they would mind if I posted them up here.

Much love to our friends at Jolie Sky of Conviction that joined us for this amazing opportunity. ^_^

Anyone else got any tales/screenies of their encounter(s)?

After we sold off the commods from the first attack and split, it ended up being 9.5k each for 11 pirates. For one battle. ^_^

Although, I saw a lot of people on sloops in 2 and 3 man teams trying for the treasure. My first instinct when I heard he was in a Longship was to take out a Longship of my own. I didn't even think of taking a sloop. For one, I didn't want to turn down my mates that had just joined me on the briggy. I wonder if any of the sloop teams had any success. Their poe split would've been much bigger.

And yeah, it was madness around him. All these sloops and a couple cutters swarming around him like flies! I got a screen of that too but forgot to crop and upload it.

Re: Oceanus and the Red Greenfish

We got 'im not much later with a 6 person sloop and got close to 10k each too after everything was sold off.

When Oceanus said anything and everything red and green, he really meant it. Hehe.

Re: Oceanus and the Red Greenfish

Yeah, we wasted 3 hours stalking him. It seemed everytime he would enter SF against another ship, we would be attacked by brigand ships which would tie us up just long enough for him to get engaged by someone else. I would like to thank those of you who beat him once and then hurried to engage him again, it was truely an awesome thing to see people getting 2nd and 3rd battles when some of us were waiting to get our first. My favorite part of the night was around 3 in the morning, when we were basically the only ones still waiting around his battle to engage him and when the engaged ships started to SF, Oceanus had already logged. Not that it mattered because we had already been engaged by a random brigand ship. Good Times.

Re: Oceanus and the Red Greenfish

Well, that's when you PvP the people leaving battle with the Red Greenfish. One could make a good sum that way.

In order to avoid getting bot-engaged while waiting, we went and took on one of the multitude of bot spawns shortly after we saw the Red Greenfish get engaged. We fought our sea battle and when it was done, the Red Greenfish was still in the same fight and got out moments later. Then we were unengaugeable for close to the same amount of time. So, there's one more strategy revealed.

I remember getting pwned in the Gem Battle Royale between Olive and Dendrite. THAT was some good times. Didn't win a single poe...

Re: Oceanus and the Red Greenfish

Well done! We had a sloop, our haul wasn't nearly as plentyful, (as I think he'd been hit several times by the time we got him,) but it was a very fun event. Three Cheers for Treasure Ships! Thanks Oceanus!
