As there seems to be an interest from players regarding the event i will share the relevant info.  Unfortunatelly i did not get a screen capture in time.

 

[Event tab]

[22:19:32] YOU ARE HIT BY LIGHTNING! OUCH!

[22:19:32] A strange dizziness runs through your head, eventually sharpening your senses.

 

[Skill tab]

[22:19:32] Mind speed increased by 3.1010 to 23.7014

 

Each piece of equipped armor and weapons received 20 damage (ouch) and no title -_-

Congratulations, depending on server size there is VERY VERY small chance for this to happen. This chance is roughly:

  • 0.000024% chance on 2k servers (Deliverance, Exodus, Pristine, Release)
  • 0.000006% chance on 4k servers (Independence)
  • 0.0000015% chance on 8k servers (Xanadu)

Conclusion? You are more likely to win some lotteries than getting hit by lightning in Wurm. :)

I got struck by lightning about 3 years ago on Release.  I'm sure it's in the event logs if the server admins can see back that far, but I'm disappointed I never got the title for it.

Wow! There's a Twitter event for that but I never bothered tracking it on Niarja because it's so incredibly unlikely. I guess I'll have to add it now.

Heh. Sweet. I was hoping I could get struck by lightning because I could use the boost in mind speed...but no go. Lucky you. :P

There was a thread about the last time someone was struck and they reported similar gains to mind related character skills as well. Then a Dev posted about how we would get dozens of Wurmians standing out in the rain wearing plate armor for hours on end :P

About 3 years ago my guy on Pristine was struck by lightning and I noticed that it was recorded on the Token under Area Events (whatever correct label). He took no damage from it but there was a lamppost on the next tile that took around 25.00 damage. Stat changes or gear damage I really didn't check for either. The flash effect was about the only really startling thing about the event. Weirdness for sure.

If lightning directly hits structure or objects, they WILL get damaged or/and destroyed - but chance of this happening is so small that I doubt anyone noticed this happening.

I'm gonna start rain dancing sermons.

It's gonna have to be on the smaller servers though, as that Xan percentage is brutal.

So encouraging new players to build on mountain tops for the view isn't a good idea? I mean they have leather on at least so not too bad getting struck....
