Live Event: Night of Murder

Image

Preview the Live Event on YouTube

As darkness falls on the Night of Murder, the worshippers of death bathe the land in blood, all intent on proving their devotion to the Elven god Khaine. It is a time that the forces of Destruction are all too willing to exploit. Assassins infiltrate the cities, while on the battlefield the differences between Good and Evil fade beneath the crimson haze of bloodlust. None are immune to the will of Khaine during this dark holiday.

The Night of Murder event is active from 12:00 Friday February 10th until 12:00 Monday February 20th. Earn influence by gaining blessings from the Shrines of Khaine found in the RvR lakes of the world and taking part in the 'Marked for Death' quest.

You get +50% XP and Renown in the Khaine's Embrace scenario, and extra rewards from completing the event tasks.

Additionally, in the spirit of glorious murder, Khaine has decided that each player you slaughter in his honor will have double the chance to drop War Crests.

Rewards

This Night of Murder we are proud to introduce new saddles for the Pegasus (an Order and Destruction variant), along with a brand new Dark Pegasus along with a corresponding Dark Pegasus Disc for our Magus community. We whole-heartedly thank our modelers and texture artists for their continued contribution to RoR. Magus Disc Previews here (scroll to the bottom).

- Basic: Well-Mounted Skull Places a pike next to the body of a fallen foe, topped with their head.

- Advanced: Khaine’s Caress Event-slot item with career specific stats

- Elite: Cloak of Isha's Tear or Har Ganeth Cloak or Harvest Cloak Unique cloaks for both Order and Destruction, along with one generic cloak for both realms. Preview here (scroll down to Night of Murder 2022). Alternatively, players can choose a Night-of-Murder themed trophy, such as the Murder Fang for Order, the Screaming Skull for Destruction, or either realm can claim the Essence of Khaine. Trophy Previews here

- World Drop: Lobbin’ Noggin There is nothing quite so demoralizing to your enemy as tossing around the skulls of their fallen allies.
- World Drop: Thoroughly Lobbed Nog Send your fallen enemies severed head back to its former owner!

- Quest Reward: Vendetta Vial Mark your enemy target for death with the contents of this vial.
- Quest Reward: Pegasus for Order, Dark Pegasus or Dark Pegasus Disc for Destruction. Additionally, the Habiliment of Khaine for Destruction players who complete a designated section of the Infiltration Questline, or the Crest of the Ravenslayer for Order players.

There are also several hidden extra tasks that will unlock titles to players participating in this murderous holiday.

Infiltration Quest

During the Night of Murder players will get a chance at a new experience - prowling the streets of the enemy's capital during peacetime. This quest is a timed quest that requires you to stealthily navigate the streets of the opposing realm's capital (Altdorf or the Inevitable City will have to do absent true elven capitals), while avoiding roaming guards who are sniffing out enemy infiltrators.

This quest is divided into four brackets, ranks 16-40; renown rank 40-renown rank 79; renown rank 80-83; and renown ranks 84+. Each bracket ends with access to this live event's mount - the pegasus. The first bracket rewards a 30-day pegasus, followed by 60-day, 90-day, and 120-day pegasi for players who push on in the questline. Do use caution - you'll have a choice between claiming a mount or pushing for a longer-duration one, but the tasks only get harder! For those fearing anarchy in the peace-time streets of these capitals, don't worry, Karaz-a-Karak and Karak Eight Peaks are still safe from intruders... for now.

To begin your Infiltration Quest, Destruction players can head to Yasmir at the Outcrop in the Inevitable City (the beastman camp towards the Sacellum) and pick up the 'Hand of Khaine' quest; Order players can speak too Magnus Felberg in the Market Square and pick up the 'Hunting Season' quest.

Live Event Shoppe & Dyes

This Night of Murder visit two new vendors in the Altdorf Palace up the left stairs just after entering the Palace grounds) or the Outcrop in the Inevitable City, to see what limited-time dyes await you.

It wouldn't be a new live event without some new themed dyes. We are happy to introduce 22 new dyes related to the blood-crazed Dark Elves. Three of these dyes (Murderous Rage Red, Rephallim Shimmer Red, and Har Ganeth Steel) are unique in that they replace the specular dyes of your gear (for gear that uses specular dyes); these may only appear if your graphics settings are high enough. Please note that these dyes are only available for purchase during this Live Event, however some dyes may be added to loot tables in the future.

Dye previews are available here towards the bottom, but please be aware that the colors may apply differently on different base armor colors. We recommend to use an addon such as Pocket Palette to see how this dye will look on your armor. These colors were drawn largely from Citadel Paints and Games Workshop publications. We hope to continue to introduce new dyes based on inspiration from the source material in the Live Events to come.

Weekend Warfront: Deadly Embrace

Image

The broken land of the Blighted Isle bears the scars of history, scars that divide the elven race to this day. It was here at the Shrine of Khaine that the God of Murder claimed his most powerful soul, the first Phoenix King Aenarion. Though the Sword of Khaine was returned to its shrine, thousands of years later it calls out for its next victim.

This weekend Deadly Embrace 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 Khaine’s Embrace scenario, and extra rewards from completing the event tasks.


Realm versus Realm

Scenarios

- Thunder Valley

New Guards have arrived on the cliffsides of both the Order and Destruction warcamps. Players on teams who spawn camp and try to pounce into the enemy warcamp will now be vaporized by these guards, as is tradition.

- Reikland Factory

Guards for both Order and Destruction have been pulled back slightly to open up more of this map to fighting. The Guards watching over the side paths (allowing players to make a run for back flags) remain.

- The Old Dwarf Road

This scenario now has magical barriers at each spawn, to prevent enemy players getting into the spawn area.

-Tor Anroc

Destruction's Guards have been moved forward a few feet in this Scenario to provide parity with the guards at Order's spawn. AOE the siege weapons at your own risk!


Realm vs Realm

- Praag

There was an arched roof near the Order Warcamp that was very difficult to get to, and allowed Ranged players to attack others while also being able to LOS to prevent being hit back. Barriers have been added to prevent this. Similar areas that offer paths to counter-attack remain as-is, and will not be impacted by this change.


Fortresses

Following reports of invaders killing those respawning during sieges while they load, fortresses for both factions have increased their defending guards near the third floor respawn areas. Defenders are still advised to remain vigilant, as even this increase will not protect the top floor entirely.



Content

Emotes

New text emotes have been added to the game for immediate use. They are:

/sorry - For those times when something went wrong or other players interrupted your nice 1v1.
/peck - For those times when the power of the poultry fills your bones. (Used in an upcoming quest.)
/karen - For those times when you really want to speak to the manager.



Bugfixes

[20249] - The Hunter's Boots and Chestpiece will now properly unlock in the Tome of Knowledge Armory, and also now properly grant the Recruit Ward.

I don't suppose the Pepegasus mounts are permanent and don't decay?

Nice patch, lovely changes to the event:)

Just thought I'd drop this here; the sideways sitting animation that some races have for the Shoika bear I think would work very well with the pegasus and manticore mounts aswell.
