[Live Event] Return of Reckoning: Kegs End 2017

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 empty their stores of ales and beers, they celebrate the event known as Keg End – to bring luck in the new year and make room for stronger, better brews. Meanwhile, the forces of Destruction scramble to ruin the celebration, by guzzling all the Dwarf brews first!

Seek out Josef Bugman within Altdorf, and Wuzzaks da Brewmasta in the Inevitable City, to partake in this grand battle for booze! Rally at your capital's taverns, slay your hated (or loved) enemies, and learn about the true value of coin! You will also run into the legendary Gotrek Gurnisson and Skarsnik, the Crooked Moon Warboss, who will send both Order and Destruction on an epic adventure to liberate valuable war spoils and brews for this year's successful end celebrations!

Main quest line

Order: Josef Bugman - Near the Altdorf Flying Corps, 28k, 31k.
Destruction: Wuzzaks Da Brewmasta - Near the Inevitable City Flight Master, 27k 30k.

Branch-off quest line (after the first main quest)

Order: Gotrek Gurnisson - In the Screaming Cat Tavern, Altdorf, 36k, 40k.
Destruction: Skarsnik - In the Feast Hall, Inevitable City, 32k, 42k.


Rewards

These can be bought with Kegs End Coins obtained from the quests, and spent at the Cinderfall Duel Arena
(accessible by both factions through portals near the capital city Flight Master)

- Keg Tapper, pocket item that awards the 'Keg Slayer' title
- Strong Barleybrew, pocket item that awards 'The Drunkard' title
- Chuffinbrau Ale and Mad Cap Beer, especially strong brews with volatile buffs on them
- Bottomless Stein and Bugman's Black Label Recipe, unique trophies to be worn on your armor
- Regenerating Firework Launcher, able to fire off an infinite amount of Magnificent Fireworks
- Last Call Keg, a teleport item that places you in a tavern in your capital very close to the bank.
- Battle Brew Backpacks, a back slot item resembling a collection of kegs with a throwable grenade DoT ability
- Solid Silver Keg Coin, a pocket items with slight defensive stats which also awards the 'Master of Revels' title


This event will be active from December 22nd until January 5th. We hope you'll have much fun remembering and celebrating the end of this fantastic year, in true Dwarfen/Orcish fashion. Which is of course to brag, fight, and DRINK, DRINK, DRINK!

just a quick tip/note: the Keg end bully the bulls part where you collect fireworks bugs out if you already have fireworks in your backpack. abandon quest and empty your backpack of existing fireworks and pick up the quest again to complete it.

Or just use the items for the counter to properly update; as long as you're above the threshold for completion you can hand the quest in
