** Note
The Beggar Event Envoy has 3 quests to choose from.
All 3 are Special events.   Only the "Exchange Reward" (Shortbread) quest is activated during the weekends.
You will be able to accept/take the other 2 quests but will not be able to complete them as the items do not exist in regular game play.

Greetings One and All


First
I'd like to point out that this guide is directed at the lower leveled classes.

Second
It's getting harder and harder to write new guides, as talented writers keep on producing.
So I've decided on a short guide on the Shortbread event.

Third.
THIS EVENT IS TEMPORARY
Here is the IGG news release about the Event
http://vc.igg.com/news/2254/Special_Weekend_Event.html

it only runs on weekends when another event IS NOT running.

Ok, now to the guide.


Hello, you've just entered VCO, Your starting town is a city called Athens, you'll spend your first breathing minutes as a newb running
around Athens. Watch your levels rocket up and up as you talk to various people. Sadly this doesn't last forever. But on to greener pastures,
Enjoy It While You Can

Ok, after running around for 10-15 mins, you'll be asked to go to the Athens Suburbs Oh but, you don't know how to get there, you say?
Never Fear! Next to your map (top left) is a function called Auto Track use that to go to the Athens Suburbs.

Now this quest asks you to kill some helpless animals. *evil laugh* Don't look so surprised VCO is all about killing things. (You get used to it)
As you run around wreaking havoc on pheasants, goats, foxes and yes even cute wabbits, you'll collect various items that can be sold at NPC's. (Non Player Characters)
E.T.C Blacksmiths, Tailors, Alchemists, Dockers, Shipyard Bosses. (Auto track is your friend.)


Whats this? You picked up 1 Shortbread! Woot! NOM NOMS you think.
Haha no.....


Sorry your character doesn't get to enjoy this tasty morsel. But what you can do with it is this...


First Step


Collect 50 Shortbread (This is a big step)
At the top left of your screen (below auto track) is a function called Auto AFK
Click that and set your preferences. Once you've pressed yes. Your character should start automatically acquiring targets, and he will run to kill them. *evil laugh*
In as little as 45 minutes you will have picked up 50 shortbread. Congratulations you've completed the first step.



Second Step

Run back and give your quest back to the guy. (The quest to kill the helpless animals, remember?) By this time you should have easily killed enough animals. You'll receive
another quest after submitting your old one in, but lets ignore that for a second. Run back towards the city and enter.



Third Step


Now you can get excited, your about to get some serious levels. Run to the shipyard boss. (Auto-track if you don't know where he is) Next to the shipyard boss is a guy called Beggar Event Envoy NPC talk to him and press exchange rewards.
(Ignore the top two)
BAM! There goes your 50 shortbread and now look at your levels go! You just got 20 million XP for your profession level, and 10 Million XP for your eloquence level.

Congratulations!

Notes

This exchange can be done once every 10 Hours

The Beggar Envoy appears only on the weekend, Times 11:00 pm Friday on EST till end of Sunday or sometimes noon of Monday. - thanks truewing

As you run around picking up items for 45 mins, set your preferences in auto afk, not to pick up heavy items. If you do, in time, you'll slow to a walk, making it harder and longer to pick up
shortbread. - Thanks Mona.

Beggar Event Envoy NPC is in:

- Athens (dock approx. 18, -47)
- Seville (dock approx.  64, -52)

Instruct them to check do not pick up anything heavy or they will end up at the end of the troop train too slow to get to anything before it is killed.

Also note that there is another "Beggar Event Envoy NPC" in Seville (the fenced in area near the city entrance).

And once your ships reach level 61 structure, then go to docker and undock your other ships and bring them up to level 61 structure using the shortbread reward.

Excuse for my reaction on this,

Stimulating new players to afk auto attack animals in Athens sub for lousy crappy Shortbread event, isnt really the thing we should have in mind for new players. We should stimulate them to explore all things in VCO and not as first the shortbread event..
Shortbreads are only usefull when you are stuck at lvl 100 or something and dont wanna spend to much time in instances.

As my opinion, we should discourage new players to take place in shortbread event, cause it spoils the gameplay and new players wont be motivated to do other stuff and they will leave in short time.

MPE5, your guide works wel as guide, but sorry folks, this wont work.

The most beautifull thing about this game is the base of it and thats not the whole thing about professions.

Eitherway, peeps, keep up the good guide buildingworks and happy sailing.

Once you have gotten a few shortbreads and leveled up to leave town go to a few of the other starter cities for you auto attack. Leaving Athens to ones doing the storyline quests.

Alexander is not very busy if you wish auto attack. Istanbul is okay too.

The feature for auto attack is there guys, people use it.  But I would suggest if you just want to do shortbreads follow the above.
