No lies folks, this week has been CRAZY. So much so that I am a bit late to the party with this post. Many of you are no doubt already done fighting Gaston and are now preparing to dress Belle and Beast head to toe for a fancy Ball. Aw, I remember my last ball. No, wait. I remember getting HIT by a ball. Which my mother threw…while “teaching” me to like sports. Childhood is challenging. Where were we? Aw yes, today will be less of a guide and more of a collection of photos of the main event of fighting Gaston. Let’s take a look!
The First Battle
Your first fisticuffs with Gaston will include doing 18 4 hours quests. Luckily, ANY of the Beauty and the Beast characters you’ve collected can partake, making this the biggest battle yet. If you’ve made the plunge with Chip and Mrs. Potts, this will only take you 12 hours.
The battle itself honestly makes Gaston seem a bit outnumbered.
With everyone encircling him and no where to hid, he reverts to cave man ways and waves a big spiky stick around to stop anyone who would do him harm.
And for someone who’s supposed to be oh so strong, even Belle beats him at a simple game of arm wrestling.
And if that wasn’t enough, Monster Potts rains fire down from above. Just look at how miserable poor Gaston looks. Although, given that he’s a zombie, I really think they ought to be going for the head. Just saying.
I’m sorry, but at a certain point I just want to tell Gaston that there are other fish in the sea. Sure she’s pretty, but so is Elsa and she’s eligible and not in love with a goat bear!
Once you’ve finished the first battle, you’ll need to tap the cutlery once more. You’ll need to take down 60 of them, but luckily you can hit 10 at a time with 6 minute intervals in between. I have to say that the tappers have been very well balanced this time around, as opposed to earlier events making us wait an hour between ever 5.
The Second Battle
After fighting off the silverware, Gaston will return once more, because hey, who doesn’t like to get scalding hot tea poured on them…twice.
The second battle, will involve completing 24 quests, this time at 2 hours each, so before long you’ll be chasing Gaston away with his pony tail between his legs.
Preparing for the Ball
The battle won, it will be time to get things ready for the Ball we’ve all been hearing about. Apparently pouring hot tea and having a crazed fight did not do well for the Ballroom itself and it will take a full 12 hours to get things in order.
Once the quest is done, the Ball will be redone, ready and waiting for a beautiful dance to take place there. I really like this two phase idea for the centerpiece of the event. It just makes everything more engaging.
And now we wait. In a couple days now, Belle and Beast will have costumes to unlock and once that is done we’ll be able to welcome Gaston. I strongly recommend working to level up Belle and Beast, at least to 6 if not 7 and making sure to collect as much event currency and roses as possible so that you are ready for the high costs of costumes and Gaston himself. How are you all doing with the event? Are you feeling good about completing everything or has this been a bit of a rush from start to finish? Let me know in the comments!
