Weekend Warfront: Blood Basin
It’s Friday, Friday, Friday!
That means it’s time for another Weekend Warfront!
This time, with an easy-to-do Task List.
The blackened environs of Black Fire Pass are home to one of the bloodiest battles yet seen. The clash of steel on steel does little to drown out the screams of the wounded as Order and Destruction forces struggle for dominance on the blood-mired snow.
Blood Basin – Weekend Event (March 19th – 22nd, 2010)
The Black Fire Basin scenario is open again for characters of all levels! This weekend only join in the joy of slaughter as enemy forces clash in this legendary local!
- Basic Reward – Level-appropriate Healing potion
- Advanced Reward – Level-appropriate Molotov potion
- Elite Reward – Vanquisher’s Boon – Buff that awards extra Emblems from Scenarios based on the score.
The Live Event Herald for Order is named Kadius Kridt and is located at (26776, 30868) by the Flight Master in Altdorf. The Live Event Herald for Destruction is named Kralf Hexenkrieger and is located at (29455, 32368) by the Flight Master in the Inevitable City.
Blood Basin started on March 19th and will last until March 22nd. The task list is the same regardless of Tier/Realm.
There is a bonus to Experience and Renown while in this Scenario, making it the place to be this weekend!
Note: I have pulled some amazing renown gains out of the Weekend Warfront scenarios (ie: well over 10k for multiple scenarios), so it’s definitely worth it to queue for this scenario simply for that 10% bonus.
Pretty straightforward map. I mean, sure, it’s got places to run around on the sides, but I’ve never really seen people bother to do that much unless they were truly being camped. Which happens. A lot. If you have the time (and why wouldn’t you in the heat of battle), pan your camera up to look straight down into the ice below the spike. 😉
Weekend Event Tasks
- Eliminate enemy Realm Greenskins/Dwarfs (50)
- Eliminate enemy Realm servants of Chaos/the Empire (50)
- Eliminate enemy Realm Dark Elves/High Elves (50)
- Complete all Blood Basin tasks
Two weeks in a row with good news. This time, zero “Carry X” tasks despite it being a flag scenario. Good times. That being said, did the pendulum swing a little too far? This seems overly simplistic and really flippin’ easy. Yeah, I can’t be pleased. I’m called a “gamer”. 😉
As an aside, who writes these things up? Can we get some proofreading? I’m fairly certain that I don’t have any “friendly Realm Greenskins” on my server that I can kill. So why add the descriptive? Not quite as bad as the infamous, and now oft-seen due to a bug, “Slay an Airship Look Out” but it’s pretty darn close.
Order Title: Grisly Knight
Destruction Title: Lord of Gore
Well, no one seems to find any so this will probably be the last time I’ll get my hopes up. hehe
