    Confusion about Hamlet Defense?

    Is the 25/50 hour timeframe Earth hours, or game hours?

    If it's Earth hours, this sounds absolutely terrible to me. That means the Earth day that the event runs would take what, 12 cycles to switch? So what happens to those of us who happen to not be able to log on that particular day? Personally I play on a pretty set schedule so it's entirely possible that will be the case.

    Please tell me I'm an idiot and it's Eorzean hours...?

    I think yes it's earth hour, but if i read it right, all this waiting hour will works fine when we receive 2 more hamlets. I made a quick graph on how i think it will work.


    Colors represents different nations. We will not run out of things to do, they just cycling over and over again.

    Edit:fixed chart, read the post wrong~ It's 50hour noncombat gathering phase and 25hr of battle phase. Brain farted.

    When you have all 3 hamlets up and running there should be over lap of cool down / active states.

    It could work like this:

    Grid: begins 50 hour cool down
    Limsa Begins 25 hour active mode
    Uldah: 1/2 through 50 hour cool down (25 hrs left)

    Grid: 25 hours left on cool down
    Limsa: begins 50 hour cool down
    Uldah: begins 25 hour active

    Grid: begins 25 hour active
    Limsa: 25 hours left on cool down
    Uldah: beging 50 hour cool down.

    Always a fight for DoW/DoM and always content for DoH/DoL

    Colors represents different nations. 25hour of Gathering, 25hour of Battle, 50hour of cooldown. We will not run out of things to do, they just cycling over and over again.
    I'm pretty sure it's 50 hours of gathering/crafting followed by 25 hours of battle. I don't remember the patch notes mentioning any cooldown.

    What break?
    Isn't it 50 hour for supply -> 25 hour for battle -> 50 hour for supply -> ... ?
    There are two phases to this new content: a 50-hour non-combat phase where Disciples of the Hand and Land can enhance hamlet readiness for battle, and a 25-hour combat phase where Disciples of War and Magic can join the local militia and fight beastmen directly, while Disciples of the Hand and Land can aid in the effort in other ways.

    Thank you very much, Chardrizard and ChiefCurrahee! I had forgotten about the other 2 Hamlets...

    This relieves the burning pit in my stomach.

    If you want gathering you got a nice 50hr to do it, thats 2 days!, then 1 day of fighting, dont make it on that day? wait 2 days n try again, then 2 more days n try again and so on.

    When 3 are running it will be balanced out, 2 will be gathering and 1 will fighting, then they rotate.

    Now that would be cool. Splits the people a bit in other regions.
