    Weekend Warfront: Unforgiving Seas

    Image

    During one of the recent battles upon the Inner Sea, one of our vessels foundered upon the rocky shoals of the Isle of the Dead. What is worse is that our enemies have done the same. Now both sides scrabble for parts from the many other wrecks so that they may escape the island before their souls are lost. We must ensure that our allies escape that dreaded place.

    Two ships have run aground while moving through the storm-wracked seas of Serpent' Passage. One of these vessels belongs to the High Elves, while the other is of Dark Elf origin. Both ships carry valuable supplies that we must claim if we are to gain an edge in this war. At the same time, we must deny these resources to our enemies.

    This weekend Unforgiving Seas will be the weekend warfront from 12:00 on Friday to 12:00 on Monday Altdorf time. You get +50% XP and Renown in the Serpent's Passage scenario, and extra rewards from completing the event tasks.

    [Live Event: Keg End]

    Image

    The wheel of the seasons has turned, ushering out the sun’s last warmth with bitter blasts of northern winds. As snow creeps down to block mountain passes and lock the Warhammer world in the icy talons of winter, the citizens of the Old World raise their mugs high; the time of Keg End is at hand. In an epic celebration fraught with boasting, toasting, and epic fireworks, the Dwarfs clear out their stores of ales, beers and other intoxicating beverages in order to bring luck in the New Year and make way for a stock of better, stronger brews. But the dwarfs are not alone in their celebrations as ogres and giants once again invade the lands of the Old World, and the greenskins are always finding ways to ruin dwarfen festivities.

    The Holidays are upon us and, as such, Keg End returns to WAR! This year Keg End comes home to the dwarfen holds of Karaz-a-Karak and Karak Eight Peaks, though the latter is in need of some housekeeping. Travel there and speak to Josef Bugman or Wurrzag Ud Ura Zahubu to begin your Keg End experience.

    Keg End will start on December 22nd at 12:00 Altdorf time and last until January 5th 12:00 Altdorf time.

    [Rewards]

    - Basic reward: [Party Keg], 21 day duration item that gives a 5 minute renown and XP boost for party

    - Advanced reward: [Keg Tapper], 60 day event slot item

    - Elite reward: Exclusive New Cloak Appearance [Order United Cloak] [Destruction United Cloak]

    - Completing all tasks: Exclusive Title – Brew Hound (Order), Broo Dawg (Destruction)

    - Completing the 'Saving Keg End' Quest - [Dwarf Keg-Handler] (Order), [Goblin Bar-Back] (Destruction)

    Defeating Giants in RvR lakes: [Battle Brew Backpack] and Fireworks

    Defeating players in PvP: [Keg End Present] with random gifts.

    Golden Stein: Find and drink from the Golden Stein in RvR lakes for a 6 hour +25% renown, XP and influence boost.

    A limited-time Keg End quest 'Keg End Special' has been hidden somewhere in the world. This quest is a test of a new system of branching quests, where taking one path in the quest line will block you from taking others. The rewards differ based on the path you choose, so choose wisely.

    - The points required for a win is increased to 4000

    - Minutes left is rounded up, so it is no longer saying 0 minutes left when there's 59 seconds left.

    - Reduced number of spots per side from 204 to 192 (Will try different amounts and see, this might change again)

    - The capture time for objectives has been reduced from 2.5 minutes to 40 seconds, but taking an objective where your realm has no neighboring objective will take double the time (1 min 20s)

    Weekend Warfront: Bane of Peace

    Image

    The Dark Elf march through Dragonwake has not gone unchallenged. High Elves and their Order allies have rallied around key locations, determined to protect ancient ruins and dragon nesting sites.

    This weekend Bane of Peace will be the weekend warfront from 12:00 on Friday to 12:00 on Monday Altdorf time. You get +50% XP and Renown in the Dragon's Bane scenario, and extra rewards from completing the event tasks.

    Completing all tasks rewards the title "Orderbane" for destruction characters or "Destructionbane" for order characters.



    Realm versus Realm

    Ranked Scenarios

    - Fixed issue preventing same realm group scenarios from firing.

    - When there's more melee than ranged in queue for ranked solo, it will try 2x mdps matches before trying 1 mdps + 1 rdps. Unless the player it is trying to create a pop for is a rdps. This should give more of a mix of different setups instead of almost every match being 1 mdps + 1 rdps.



    Combat and Careers
    Image
    General Changes and Fixes

    - Changed bolster levels to be a more gradual shift from bolstering to lvl 48 down do lvl 40 instead of big jumps in power. Should also reduce the power level around lvl 28-30 somewhat.

    Land of the Dead Test

    The two weeks wait is soon over and the Necropolis of Zandri is nearing its release. It is a complete RvR rework of the open world zone of the Land of the Dead. The four tombs and the Tomb of the Vulture Lord dungeon will be released later.

    A public test will be held on Sunday at 20:00 Altdorf time. Several guilds and warband leaders will organize teams for the test. Any remaining spots will be available for anyone that signs up at the expedition quartermaster at 19:45 onwards.

    During the testing phase there's only temporary currency rewards that you can buy a few trophies for. No gear rewards with stats are available during the testing phase.

    Yesterday was 8 years since Warhammer Online - Age of Reckoning turned off it's servers after just over 5 years of Waaagh.

    A few months ago on the Warhammer Online birthday stream we had the pleasure of meeting with some of the amazing people who worked at Mythic Entertainment on Warhammer Online - Age of Reckoning. We have now released this as a standalone video on out YouTube channel.

    Thank you again to these guys for making this happen. If you haven't seen it already we hope you enjoy it. We have had interest in us doing another one of these and I am sure there is much more content we could cover, so please let us know any suggestions.

    Weekend Warfront: Lair of Despair

    Image

    Eridial was without the prudence of an experienced master, and he became arrogant in his abilities. He attempted to create an artifact that could gift the power of the dragons to the High Elves, even while the beasts slumbered. His attempt proved a success, but at a terrible cost. The soul of Eridial's dragon companion, Thiralies, was ripped from his massive frame, leaving only a decaying husk. Overcome with grief and shame, Eridial fled into the bowels of Tor Anroc, never to be seen again.

    Now both the forces of order and destruction journey into the bowels of Tor Anroc where Eridial fled in shame. Seek out this trinket, to claim it for the Witch King, or to prevent the Dark Elves from gaining what they seek.


    This weekend Lair of Despair will be the weekend warfront from 12:00 on Friday to 12:00 on Monday Altdorf time. You get +50% XP and Renown in the Tor Anroc scenario, and extra rewards from completing the event tasks.
