WAR Live Event: Heavy Metal
November 18 - December 1, 2008
Across the Old World and on the island home of the High Elves, bitter enemies clash in bloody skirmishes and mighty battles. For the soldiers of Order and Destruction, there is no respite and no mercy. Now, the warring factions will gain new allies in the form of the fearsome Black Guard and the cunning Knight of the Blazing Sun. These heavily-armored soldiers race to the battlefront to anchor their realms' defenses and ensure that for every inch of ground given, the enemy pays in bitter blood.
With a thunderous war-cry
and the ringing of
steel on steel, the battle begins anew, with neither side willing to
retreat or surrender.
The war has begun, and you've joined the forces of Order or Destruction, taking up arms with your realm-mates on the field of battle. You've conquered your foes in scenarios, stormed enemy-held keeps, raised your banners over battlefield objectives and banded together to thwart your enemies in public quests.
This November, we're bringing you a new challenge in the form of WAR's upcoming live event: Heavy Metal!
When the Heavy Metal live event
begins on November 17th, players who
log into WAR will see a new tab in the Tome of Knowledge. Clicking on
this tab will open the Live Events page, where each day we'll place a
new daily task. Completing these daily tasks earns influence, just like
you'd earn in a public quest. There are rewards for Basic, Advanced and
Elite influence, culminating in the ultimate prize: the chance to play
WAR's new classes a full week before they're released to the public!
This last reward won't be easy to earn, and players who want to get to
the Elite level will need to log in each day and complete on the daily
We will also be adding a new scenario, Reikland Factory, for Heavy Metal that will only be available to players for the duration of this live event. This scenario will take place in a steam tank factory in the Empire Tier 4 zone of Reikland and see players battling for control of different areas of the factory. This new scenario will be available for players of all levels, on all tiers, but will not contribute to the campaign. Participation in this scenario will give players an extra 10% bonus to their Renown point gain.
So sharpen your blades, load your handguns, pray to your gods and feed your Squigs and White Lions. Heavy Metal is almost here, and you don't want to miss out!
