Live Event: Daemon Moon Decaying

Image

Every year, as the fog covers the land and the autumn nights herald the chill of winter, the Daemon Moon rises. For scholars, the Daemon Moon is a dangerous time of year when the threat of a daemonic incursion is greatest. For the common-folk it is a time of revelry and chaos, all in the spirit of the times. Needless to say, the scholars are right to fear what is to come, for during the time of the Daemon Moon, daemonic forces are unleashed upon the mortal realm to play with the lives of the living as they please. This year scholars have noted a disturbing greenish-brown tinge on the Daemon Moon, an ill omen of Nurgle's power. Nurgle has indeed hefted his mighty girth to the forefront, shoving his thinner brothers aside. This year, the Daemon Moon does not rise, it decays.

This is a time of year when the veil between the Realm of Chaos and the world is dangerously thin, though foolish naïve folk do not always heed the warnings of their leaders, be they pious priests, zealous witch hunters, or wizard lords. Instead the common folk use this opportunity to play pranks on each other, blaming mischievous daemons of course. They hide behind their masks teasing friend and foe alike, not knowing that lesser daemons corrupt the mind behind the mask. Humans across the Old World, from the bustling streets of Altdorf in the Empire, to the twisted alleys of the Inevitable City in the Chaos Wastes, toy with powers they do not understand. If Nurgle is to be held at bay, you and your allies must work together to withstand the Daemon Moon Decaying.

The Daemon Moon Decaying will start on October 28th at 12:00 Altdorf time and last until November 7th 12:00 Altdorf time.

Rewards
The Daemon Moon Decaying is a new take on an existing live event for Return of Reckoning, which will be added to our annual rotation of live events. Our artists have made a new mask, two new trophies, and two new capes for this live event - all in the Nurgle theme. Our thanks to our artistic contributors for their continued dedication to RoR. Additionally we have taken into account feedback on temporary mounts given out during live events and are testing out new approach with mounts lasting longer depending on your renown bracket. While permanent mounts are not something we are considering, we do recognize that players who invested more time in their character should reap better rewards.

Basic reward: Leper's Bell, or Leper's Handbell - two new trophies to let everyone know that you are unclean. Preview here
Advanced reward: Rusted Lamellar Cloak for Order; Plaguebearer-Flesh Wrap for Destruction - two new capes.
Elite reward: Enslaved Manticore, or Decaying Manticore Disc mount (decay timers based on renown bracket)
Completing the Event Quest 'Imp Games - The Riddle' - Heart of Decay - show the world you've given into the Plague Lord's embrace
Daemon Moon Masks: There are a total of ten Daemon Moon masks, they can be acquired through a variety of ways (3 via quest, 1 via PQ, 2 via random 'box' roll, and 4 from player drops) Preview here Masks decay into permanent versions without their buffs

The Sacellum Arena
We are happy to introduce during the Daemon Moon Decaying our newest scenario - The Sacellum Arena. In this scenario you and your allies have been pulled into the belly of the Inevitable City by Tzeentch's will. During the scenario three relics will spawn by three statues on the outer edge of the Arena (initially one relic will spawn, and over time more will spawn.) Your team's objective is to pick up the relic and bring it to the center of the Arena, standing on the metal grate over molten metal for five seconds so Tzeentch can accept your offering. The carrier of the relic will have a granted ability (like a Zealot/Rune Priest buff) to toss the relic for some strategic play.

Gather the relics, drop them into the Pit of Change, and have a blast.

The Living Snot ORvR PQ
The age-old foe of the mortal realms and mythical blokes, the Living Snot, has emerged from the Chaos Realm this Daemon Moon. Join your realm in battling the Living Snot in the Chaos Wastes, while you hold back the opposing realm. This PQ will include a handful of rewards exclusive to the PQ, such as the new Joyous Visage mask.

Daemon Moon Quests
Three new quests have been implemented for the Daemon Moon Decaying live event. The first of these quests 'Imp Games' is a timed race to find hidden tricks across the cities, this quest is repeatable. A follow-up quest 'Imp Games - The Riddle' can be purchased from the merchant, started by buying the item 'Imp Curio'. Lastly is a short quest called 'Ill Omens', which is broken up into four brackets based on your character level (1-10,11-20,21-30,31-40). Previous quests from Daemon Moon Rising are still available from the Coldheart Witch Hunter in Altdorf, or the Slaughterheart Magus in the Inevitable City.

Pan de Monium
What are Daemon Moon celebrations without a bit of Pan de Monium? This Estalian bread is specially baked during the Daemon Moon, with bakers leaving small gifts, or tricks, for their unwitting customers. Pan de Monium can be acquired either by completing the Imp Games quest, or purchasing it from the Suspicious Masked Peddler. Pan de Monium contains over two dozen possible rewards, ranging from potions and talismen, to dyes and masks, or perhaps even a precious aegis for the lucky few. What does Pan de Monium have in store for you?

Dyes
Seven is a holy number for Nurgle, and the Plague Lord was generous this year, allowing his lesser brothers to also celebrate. Therefore, we have introduced seven new dyes per major Chaos god, for a total of twenty eight new dyes. As the Daemon Moon Decaying is Nurgle-themed, Nurgle themed dyes sell for gold, while dyes associated with other gods require a small additional sacrifice. These dyes are 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. 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, with a handful custom colors drawn from Warhammer Online's assets (such as Bastion Stair.) We hope to continue to introduce new dyes based on inspiration from the source material in the Live Events to come.

Live Event Shoppe
A Suspicious Masked Peddler has set up shop in the Altdorf Slums, and secluded room near the Apex of the Inevitable City. This vendor will gladly accept your gold and daemon fingers while the Daemon Moon is up, but please be aware that once the Daemon Moon fully decays, he too will fade from your life. Here players can buy new unique dyes, the Imp Curio to start a quest, or a bit of Pan de Monium. Additionally players can exchange their factions cape for the opposing faction's default version, for a price. Nothing is for free, it may cost you a finger or two - such is the price Father Nurgle demands. May the rot bless you.

Weekend Warfront: Call of the Arena

Image

One moment you and your allies were locked in a deadly struggle with your enemies in the Old World or fair isle of Ulthuan. The next moment you found yourself pulled into the Realm of Chaos and looking upon the blood-brick walls of the Sacellum of the Inevitable City. The Weaver of All Fates has challenged you to survive in his arena.

This weekend warfront Call of the Arena 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 Sacellum Arena scenario, and extra rewards from completing the event tasks.

New Player Experience Quests

New Quest: Time for an Upgrade

All players who reach level 36 will now get a mail with a Quest Item that will introduce them to the Genesis Gear merchant for their faction.

Besides introducing newer players to Genesis Gear, how to earn Crests, and where to buy these items, the quest will give 5 free Genesis Crests so a player can begin their set with the Cape, or save the Crests for later.

This quest is also retroactive, and players who are Rank 36 or above can speak to the Records Keeper in their Capital Cities to buy the Genesis Letter for 1 gold.


New Renown Rank Milestone Bonuses

Milestone Bonus rewards have been added for:

- Renown Rank 20
- Renown Rank 30
- Renown Rank 40
- Renown Rank 50


All players who hit these Renown levels from this patch onward will receive a mail that contains a small amount of HP Potions, AP Potions, Armor Potions, and a handful of War Crests to aid them as they fight and gear up.

Please note these Milestone rewards are not retroactive, but upcoming Renown Rank 60 and 70 Milestone bonuses will be designed similar to our recent RR80 quest, and will be Retroactive.

We hope everyone will enjoy these additions and the extra items!


Misc Quests

- Guild Quests which require you to win a City Siege with 6 people in a guild no longer requires them to be in the same group.



User Interface

War Report

- Caledor Hot Spot War Report will now properly send players to their Warcamp instead of a PvE camp.



Bug Fixes
Image

- [20497] A previous version of a Halloween mask was deleted in the database, removing it from inventories of players. However, recently a new mask was added using the previous database ID that was removed, causing players to see the new mask. Based on our database records the mask in question was a bloodletter mask, so players will have bloodletter masks restored, and the new mask introduced this year will have to be acquired via its normal means.
- [20501] Fixed Twisting Tactics task typo
