today, you may notice the new guitar riff that pours out from the Live
Event tab. Heavy Metal has
begun, and a call to arms has gone out to every member of the realms.
The two week long event requires a daily commitment from each
Warhammer Online player that hopes to earn the great rewards t style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">he Tome of Knowledge promises. At a
Basic level, a new trophy can hang from your belt, showing your
dedication to all who pass by. The Advanced reward is a
spectacular new cloak, attainable only during the event.
The Elite reward is the ultimate prize: a chest that holds the secrets
training as a style="font-weight: bold; color: rgb(255, 255, 153);">Black Guard
of the Burning Sun, long before
the classes are opened to the masses style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">.
Ten Ton Hammer will be there every step of the way, updating this daily
journal with the tasks as the Tome of Knowledge assigns them. Tune in

The front lines of Order's righteous
struggle against the malign forces of Destruction will soon be
bolstered by the Knights of the Blazing Sun! The Knights, called from
all corners of the Empire to perform their duty, will gather together
in numbers never seen before! As elite warriors, expert tacticians, and
brave templars of the goddess Myrmidia, the Knights of the Blazing Sun
are dedicated to claiming complete victory over Chaos and its allies! style="font-style: italic;">Do your part to ensure their success!
The Empire's survival depends upon your contribution.
Our pathetic foes teeter upon the
edge of a precipice. Only a nudge is required to send these enemies to
their final, pitiable doom. The mighty Black Guard of Malekith has
conquered the Elven lands of Yvresse and Cothique, and now moves
rapidly to join in the main invasion. Within a fortnight, Order's
defeat will be all but assured by their arrival. The Dark Elves that
serve within this elite cadre are fearless and driven to victory by
their all-consuming hatred of their enemies. The purity of a Black
Guard's hate, combined with his mastery of arms and armor, will herald
out inevitable conquest of the entire world. style="font-style: italic;">Triumph is not without price.
Dedicate yourself to Change, for there is no greater purpose.

Here we go! It's time to spill the blood of the enemies of Sigmar in
great numbers. I must find and destroy 15 Destruction members in open
combat. This is what my training is all about.
First I must find where the enemy is hiding. Destruction holds a nearby
Keep, and I have made it my mission to throw them out and establish my
Order family in their place. Teaming up with a large number of my
peers, we saddle up and ride out to fight. There is nothing more
satisfying then finding myself in the middle of a furious battle,
working together with my warband to win the day.
My task today was easily completed, with the blood of my enemies
staining the pages of my Tome of Knowledge.
25th - December 1st, 2008: style="color: rgb(255, 204, 51);"> style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">Multi-tasking!
What a surprise! Today my Tome of Knowledge posted all of the remaining
tasks for the Heavy Metal Live Event. It looks like I can complete
these in whichever order I choose. I can even skip a day here or there,
and double up on the quest completions later. Here is the list of the
- Kill 10 Factory Chickens in the Reikland Factory Scenario
- Kill 20 Undead
- Detonate the Steam Tank Ammo in the Reikland Factory Scenario
- Complete 5 Quests
- Throw 5 Gaffer's Gravybombs at Enemy Players in the Reikland
- Complete 3 Stages of a Public Quest
- Have your Realm eat the Famous Factory Sandwich in the Reikland
Very interesting. I must admit I'm fascinated by the Gravybombs and
Sandwich tasks. What could that mean?
I decided to begin with the easier tasks on the list. I traveled back
to Nordland to my old stomping
grounds. Jumping off the War Camp plateau, I ran west to my old
favorite Public Quest, The Burning
Windmill. I easily worked my way through the 3 stages, happily
killing the Chaos magic users, and their minions. One task done, and
already I can see that I've earned the Herald's Cloak! Picking up that
prize will have to wait, though.
I notice another task that calls for me to kill 20 Undead. I happen to
know of a great little spot here in Nordland, where I should be able to
rack up the kills fairly quickly. Following the road south, I make a
turn to the west and run past the Grimmenhagen
Windmill. Built into the mountains nearby is a crypt filled with
Sigmundi Spirits. The Grimmenhagen
Barrows is full of the restless undead, and I happily watch my
Tome mark off the kills. I ran into a friendly Witch Hunter in the
area, and together we worked to dispatch the Spirits with ease, sharing
credit for every kill.
One more for today, and then it's off to style="font-weight: bold;">Altdorf to get my new cloak!
Completing 5 quests should be simple enough. I have several traveling
quests left over that I hadn't finished yet. I visit the nearest Flight
Master and make a few short trips, handing messages to various
officers, and introducing myself to others. One other man in High Pass
asked me to kill 10 Beastmen for him. Bam! My fifth quest is finished!
Another task in my Tome of Knowledge is completed.
Oh, And of course I picked up my new cloak from the Herald in Altdorf.
There were 4 to choose from, each for a different rank. Thinking ahead,
I grab the rank 35 cloak. I better get to leveling!
