Season one mektoub races! Win great prizes!
From the end of July through October, you are invited to participate in the first season of mektoub races. A new race session will be add each week in one of the four countries of Atys. An NPC can be found near each starting point and will supply explanations on the race and rewards that you might win.
Prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers of each race:
- 1st place: 3 points + assortment of goodiesFor the Legendary race, the "Race of the Dragon", points will be doubled.
Finally, a reward will be given to the three top racers who have collected the most points throughtout the race season:
- 1st place: 3 months subscription to Ryzom and some goodies sent by mail.How does a race work?
To participate in a race you must ride your mektoub and be sure that you have enough haybales to complete the race. The start, each waypoint, and finish line are represented by flags similar to outpost banners.
You can start the race at your leisure from the time the race is activated to the end of the session, which lasts approximately one week.
To start a race, you must right-click on the Start flag, and choose "Start". The race and your chronometer will begin from this interaction.
After you have started your run, you will have to interact with and validate each waypoint by right-clicking on the flag and choosing the waypoint indication. All waypoints must be passed in proper order and you will receive a message indicating the registration of the waypoint.
If you get the message "You have missed a waypoint somewhere; retrace your steps.", it means that you have missed validating a waypoint and you will need to validate the missed waypoint to continue the race. For example, if you attempt to validate Waypoint 3 without validating Waypoint 2, you must retrace your steps!
The run will end when you validate the Finish flag by right- clicking on it and choosing "Finish". Your time and your ranking will then appear on the board.
You can start the race as many time as you wish, only your best time will be kept.
The final ranking of winners of each session will be posted here.
