The Feast of Shoika

Post#1 » Fri Sep 16, 2022 9:58 am

We have made the decision to extend the double XP / influence / renown bonus through to Sept 26th 12:00 Altdorf time to coincide with the end of the Feast of Shoika event.

Live Event: The Feast of Shoika

Image

The summer sun has reached its zenith and Dazh smiles down upon his worshippers below. All throughout Kislev pyres are lit, from the smallest village to the largest cities, in honor of Dazh who gave the world the gift of sunlight and fire. These pyres are fueled by sacrifices of mighty beasts, and small scraps of paper upon which the faithful write their prayers, hoping the flames will carry them to the heavens and reach the generous hands of Dazh. The summer season in Kislev is not only the celebration of Dazh, for it also honors Shoika, the powerful Tsarina who established Kislev. It is a time of celebrating in a manner most fitting of the Old World, with fire and blood.

The Feast of Shoika is celebrated beyond the borders of Kislev. Its festivities reach Altdorf as a sign of the lasting alliance between the Empire of Sigmar and the Bear Kingdom. The Feast of Shoika is a dual celebration of the founding of Kislev and the start of the Kislevite New Year, and the onset of summer and season of the harvest which rely heavily on the blessings of Dazh. Kislevite Boyars, Priests of Dazh, and mysterious hag mothers celebrate in Altdorf. Meanwhile, Dolgans and goblins from the east join the Raven Host as the forces of Chaos seek to raze Kislev and turn its lands into one massive pyre honoring the Lord of Change. Head to Altdorf and the Inevitable City to learn how you can help during the Feast of Shoika.

The Feast of Shoika will start on September 16th at 12:00 Altdorf time and last until Sept 26th 12:00 Altdorf time.

Rewards
The Feast of Shoika is a new live event for Return of Reckoning, which will be added to our annual rotation of live events. We've saddled up some new mounts for you (and learned a thing or two in the process) and didn't forget about the magus; we have two new custom capes for the live event; and retextured an npc model to introduce a new big-bad-lady for this live event. Our thanks to our artistic contributors for their continued dedication to RoR.

Basic reward: [Kossar's Helm] or [Feast of Shoika Alcohol Sampler]
Advanced reward: Your very own orphaned [Oblast Elk Fawn] or [Lynsk Bear Cub], or [Feast of Shoika Dye Satchel] containing four random dyes from the Feast of Shoika
Elite reward: [Potion of Acclaim], the [Oblast Elk], or [Lynsk Bear] mounts
Completing the Event Quest - An event slot item; and depending on the path you take/choices you make the new Kislevite capes: the ermine-fur-lined [Druzhina's Korzna] , or fur cloak fit for winter - the [Kislevite Kozhukhi].

Dyes
We are happy to use this live event to introduce twenty new dyes, available only during this live event, for those who wish to expand their colorful horizons. Dye previews are available here, but please be aware that the colors may apply differently on different base armor colors. These colors were drawn from the Warhammer Armies: Kislev 6th Ed., WFRP The Realm of the Ice Queen 2nd Ed., and other sources such as Warhammer Online's Praag assets. We hope to continue to introduce new dyes based on inspiration from the source material in the Live Events to come.

Feast of Shoika Epic Branching Quest
During the Feast of Shoika, players will have the opportunity to take part in a new questline built with our new branching quest system, The Tainted Child for Order, or Death On The Steppes for Destruction. Each questline has three endings, depending on the path you took and the decisions you made - and don't worry, there is a route focused on PvP for the PvE-shy players.

Pyre Blessings
Journey to Altdorf or the Inevitable City to speak with your local pyromaniac, the Priest of Dazh or Cultist of Flames respectively. Slay Kislevite bulls and be rewarded with Prayers to the Pyre, which you can write your most sincere prayers upon before casting them into the pyre and waiting for your god's reply. Be careful, for the gods know the value of your prayers, and not all are worthy of a blessing.

The Ancient Widow ORvR PQ
A spirit as old as the land of Kislev has reappeared in Kislev during this Feast of Shoika, a powerful being bent on cleansing the land of all those who do not respect it. Needless to say, that is everyone. Join your realm in battling the Ancient Widow in the streets of Praag, while you hold back the opposing realm. This PQ will include a handful of rewards exclusive to the PQ.

Live Event Shoppe
Collect Pyre Offerings by killing players in ORvR or Scenarios and trade them in with merchants in your Empire/Chaos capital cities - Baba Tsvana in Altdorf or the Dolgan Bloodrider in the Inevitable City. Note: the Pyre Offerings are a BLUE currency, so check your auto-rolls. These merchants will offer you foods and drinks from the northern lands, and some of the new dyes. Feast while you can, because after the feast comes the famine.

Quests

- Death on the Steppes - The Spiriter Meets Death : Attempt at fixing the respawn of Bodric Greyhand.

- Death on the Steppes - East Meets West : Fix to Grain Wagons so players can interact with them.

- Death on the Steppes & Tainted Child PvP path : The step to require kills in Nordland or Nordenwatch has been changed to simply kill players anywhere you please. The Nordenwatch requirement, an its infrequent pops, was throttling progress for lvl 16+ players.

- Death on the Steppes - Yako's Blood-Drive - fixed an issue preventing you from selecting a reward. This quest should now correctly be set as repeatable.

- The Tainted Child - The Harvest Comes : this quest should now correctly be set as repeatable.

- Heart of Stone : This quest will now count kills in all T2 maps instead of only the Shadowlands/Ellyrion. As these maps are not always open, it was difficult to complete this quest in only one pairing.

- Feathers in the Wind : This quest will now count kills in all T2 maps instead of only the Ostland/Troll Country. As these maps are not always open, it was difficult to complete this quest in only one pairing.


Items

- Koumiss has been adjusted and the amount of AP/s decreased. The original AP regen was too high and had unintended side-effects.

- The Kossar Helm has been added to the live event shop for those players who didn't read the event tasks before selecting their reward. The reason there were two basic rewards was that some players already had the helm from previous events and it did not make sense for them to get a second helm; however, the helm is required to complete all 10 event tasks.

- Mount Note: We are aware that the tooltip for mounts are incorrect. They should say 60% speed increase and we will try to fix this tooltip in the future.

Very cool!

Is this event custom made, or was it in the original AoR?
