Things To Keep In Mind
- The Salvage part is the main focus on this scenario, many people always leave it unguarded and focus on farming the opposing team. Use this to your advantage.
- If it turns into a stalemate and you want good XP and Renown leave the Sc party and pick off the stragglers in the back.
- If you do get stuck in a stalemate (which happens 99.99% of the time) try to get a bright wizard or sorcerer to aoe nuke you by your spawn points guards. This will cause them to agro them, and anyone who heals them.
- If they are camping near your spawn point, hop off the back of the boat and swim out of their line of site. Come back on shore and grab the Salvage Part. Once you have this circle around again (But not so far back, or you will drop the part) and return the salvage part to your crate.
- If it is a stalemate, a good AFK spot is up on the pillar in the middle of the Scenario.
Run the Part: This is the fastest way to win the scenario and the fastest renown/xp. Have a tank pick up the part and run it back to your salvage cart to cap it.
Farming: This is the usual turn out of this scenario, both teams just focus on killing each other and completely ignore the part. Usually they do this to farm Officer Medallions. If you're sneaky enough you can sneak around the opposing team and run the Salvage part yourself.
Tanks: If you're team plans on running the salvage part, then you're the perfect candidate. Otherwise you have no special purpose
Melee DPS: Kill Stuff, fairly simple, yes?
Ranged DPS: See above.
Healers: Heal stuff.
Maximizing Renown Earned
Win. It's almost all I can say for this scenario. If you win it, you get the best renown and XP you can get out of this SC. You will need to focus on running the salvage part if you plan on winning. Even if your team isn't listening to you, put all your attention into this part.
