— In-game description
Crab Toss is an activity introduced with the the Secret of Southsun release that is loosely based on the guild challenge Southsun Crab Toss. Crab Toss can be played in Southsun Cove. Enter into a match by talking to npc Karlotta who can be found north of the Privateer's Moorage point of interest, near the Sawtooth Bay.
Players are pitted into a free for all arena. Each player gets skills to help them fight each other for control of a crab while avoid enemy karka. A Succulent Crab is thrown randomly into the arena by the Crab Toss Referee and the objective is to gain and hold the crab for all long as possible. The player with the most points at the end of the time is the winner.
- You can watch the Crab Toss Referee when the Succulent Crab is either dead or not in the field yet to see where it will go.
- Watch out for the Veteran Karka, they will use a rolling attack to instantly down players. You can use this to your advantage.
- If you're surrounded, you can throw the crab onto the ground in front of you so nobody will steal it. The crab has similar throw mechanics to the keg in Keg Brawl.
- Use the boxes lying around on the ground to help you hold or gain the crab.
