WAR: Experience Enhancements Part 2
Mythic Entertainment has already made strides to improve the experience gain in Warhammer Online. Continuing their efforts, additional changes have been made, this time making Keep takeovers more appealing.
Today, we launch Phase 2 of this ongoing effort. Players who capture an RvR keep previously received only renown. As of today, players of the appropriate rank (actual, not bolstered) will also earn an experience bonus for successfully defeating a keep lord.
As with Public Quests and defeating monsters, the experience awarded for the successful capture of a keep will vary depending on a players rank relative to the difficulty of the keep. In Tier 2, players will begin to earn this bonus when they reach rank 15. In Tier 3, the minimum rank required is 25, and in Tier 4 it is 35. Players will notice a diminishing return from keep captures if their level approaches the top of that tier.
Keep sieges are a centerpiece of our RvR gameplay, and were happy to make the successful capture of an enemy keep even more rewarding. Well continue to look for ways to improve the rate of experience gain in WAR, including rewards for defending Keeps and capturing Battlefield Objectives. Stay tuned!
