    Image

    Due to last week's prolonged issue with SC queues, we're hosting a X2 RR/XP/INF Event this weekend, starting from Friday noon till Monday noon, Altdorf time.

    We've also picked Nordenwatch as the weekend warfront, which is one of the community's favorite scenarios. We hope this weekend will be filled with epic battles and hefty rewards!

    Weekend Warfront: Return to Nordenwatch

    Image

    The Norse continue to assault the rain-scoured coasts of Nordland. The Empire navy are doing a fair job of sinking their vessels before they can reach the shores, but enough get close enough to get their warriors onto the beaches. With control over Nordenwatch, the ruined fortress out in the bay, the defenders may be able to use its cannons to guard the sea.

    The call to arms has gone out from Nordenwatch! This weekend, battle for control over the critical beachhead while enjoying a 50% bonus to your XP and renown gain! Defeat your enemies and hold the Lighthouse, Barracks and fortress for your side!


    This weekend The Struggle of Nordenwatch 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 Nordenwatch scenario, and extra rewards from completing the event tasks.

    Complete all tasks to earn the title "Hero of Nordenwatch" for order or "Scourge of Nordenwatch" for destruction.

    Scenarios

    - The previous changes to keep players in reserve have been disabled and scenarios will now be filled up with any archetypes available in the queue. So the pops should be faster, but the archetype composition might not be balanced.

    - Earning a medal in a scenario now gives a small renown bonus as well. Medals are earned by getting top deathblows, damage, healing, protection or objective score on your realm.

    - The renown tick for dropping off a bomb, flag or part in those types of scenarios has been increased.

    - Added in hotfix: You can no longer capture the flag in ranked SCs if anyone is in combat. The flag mechanic is only meant to be used if a team surrenders or won't come out of spawn to fight.

    - Added in hotfix: Black Crag Keep Central Ruins Objective now point gain over time has been reduced from 4 to 3.

    Open World Campaign

    - Now you need to fully secure flags for them to count towards zone locks. You need to take the flag and wait until the timer reaches zero. Previously you didn't need to wait for the timer.


    Fortresses

    The contribution system in forts has been revamped and now shares code with the city contribution system.

    Instead of being a shared loot roll for both realms, it will be separate rolls for both realms, but with lesser bag types for the loosing side.

    The number of bags have been increased significantly, especially the blue/green/white bag variants. Previously a full population fort would drop 40 bags in total, now a full fort will give 170 bags in total spread over both realms. This means that if you already have full invader, but you contribute enough in a fort you will have a much higher chance to win a bag that contains royal crests.

    The base rewards for winning a fort is now 4 invader crests and the base reward for loosing is 1 invader crest, however both sides will get more loot bags than before if they contribute enough.

    The renown tick for winning a fort has been reduced, but the kills in a fort will give more renown than before. Forts count as battlefield objectives for the Field of Glory buff now.

    Opting out of bags is now supported in forts.

    General Changes and Fixes

    - Cleansing a DoT now counts as protection on scoreboards. The value is the remaining non-crit damage of the DoT.

    Group/Warband Scoreboard

    A Group/Warband Scoreboard has been added. It works similarly to the scenario scoreboard, but will display stats for members of your current group or warband.

    The stats are counted since the group was created, but can be reset by the group leader.

    This works in any type of content, PvE, RvR, Scenarios etc.

    If players leave the group they will be removed from the scoreboard after approximately 15 minutes unless they rejoin the group before then. So if you crash but rejoin within 15 minutes your score is kept.

    To show the scoreboard, press the "Scenario Summary Window" keybind, while you are outside of a SC. It is ` by default.
    Spoiler:
    Image
    Note: This new scoreboard will likely replace the previous RaidMeter addon, which does similar things, but only works in PvE dungeons. For now both of them works though.

    Weekend Warfront: Forged in Blood

    Image

    The legendary workshop of Logrin Olgrumson has been unearthed, promising both riches and badly needed weapons to the faction that can maintain control of the Forge. Now both Order and Destruction forces converge upon the ancient workshop, both sides determined to claim the Dwarf hoard as their own.

    This weekend Forged in Blood 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 Logrin's Forge scenario. Completing all tasks rewards the unique title "The Forgelord".


    New Scenario Mechanic

    The mechanic of this scenario is switched to rotating king of the hill. Same as in the Reikland Hills scenario. The fight starts at Logrin's Anvil, then one realm captures it the fight will move either to Logrin's Hammer or Logrin's Axe. Then you have to decide if you rush to the new objective or if you stay to defend the previous objective, which remains open for a short while.

    Check the RoR Wiki for more info on this SC and other ones.

    Image

    The once tranquil grounds of the Temple of Isha are soaked in the blood of WAR. Once again the armies of Malekith have amassed upon the Lost Temple of Isha. In years long past two brothers, Tyrion and Teclis, forced their enemies from the temple. Tyrion it was who slew Poisonblade, the Witch King's champion, while Teclis accomplished a feat matched by no hero then or since.

    The Lost Temple of Isha scenario is open again for characters of all levels! Should the forces of Destruction complete all of their tasks and successfully desecrate the Temple of Isha they will be awarded with the title of "Sorrowmonger" while those amongst the armies of Order who manage to successfully defend the temple and complete their tasks will find themselves dubbed as "Isha's Champion".

    This weekend Isha's Sorrow 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 Lost Temple of Isha scenario, and extra rewards and titles from completing the event tasks.
