Weekend Warfront: Days of Doom
Following on the heels of a blood-filled (and rather fun-filled) weekend in Black Fire Basin, comes a trip back to Doomfist Crater.
Hrm…and a return to a less straightforward task list it would seem.
Let’s take a look!
The ancient site known as Doomfist Crater is one steeped in myth and lore. Now Order and Destruction forces converge upon the broken landscape, determined to deny their enemies access to whatever treasures may lay buried beneath the surface.
Days of Doom – Weekend Warfront (March 26th – 29th, 2010)
The Doomfist Crater scenario is open again for characters of all levels! /taunt your enemies to goad them into battle, capture and hold the Central Platform for your side, Use Doomfist Ore to accelerate your kill count and use Doomfist Powder to knock back your enemies!
- 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.
Days of Doom started on March 26th and will last until March 29th. 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.
This has always been a rather intriguing scenario. Not one of my favorites, but hey, they can’t all be. 🙂
The fight always seems to start with a huge race and brawl over the Central Platform, with lots of possible tactics for taking it successfully at least. Once it’s claimed, there’s plenty of ways to maneuver to get it back. The addition of the near-perma-CC items adds a unique twist, both on the offensive and the defensive. It should be an interesting weekend.
Weekend Event Tasks
- Capture and hold the Center Platform in Doomfist Crater
- Elminate enemy players using Doomfist Ore
- Use Doomfist Munitions to knock back your enemies
- Disciple of Khaine
- /taunt a member of every enemy career
- Complete all Days of Doom tasks
Seems to be broken. The random names listed are for /taunts and don’t appear in the smaller list. They also don’t credit you with any influence despite being part of the 6 tasks shown on the list or for the 12 taunts you need as Order. Good times.
Apparently I wasn’t the only one to notice this little issue. They pulled the Live Event and fixed it fairly quickly this afternoon. Kudos Mythic on a quick response time.
Eliminating enemy players with the Ore triggers off killing them while holding it or killing someone that is holding it. It may also be group-based as I got credit for a kill once but wasn’t anywhere near a fight. The buff seems to be a 25% damage bonus with the added requirement of killing people before the timer runs out. Otherwise…boom goes the dynamite.
Knocking people back with the Munitions is all you though and very easy to do. It doesn’t knock them back a huge distance, but it is a fun little form of CC to mess with people. There’s barrels of it everywhere and you get 5 charges per barrel.
So, once you get your kills in, you’re gonna be fine. That seems to be the only real limiter here. Well, unless you can’t seem to get in a scenario where your side holds the platform. You have to hold it until the end by the way. hehe. But if your Realm can’t pull that off at least once this weekend, you need more help than I can give. 😉
Title: The Doomed
Let me know if there’s a different one for Order and Destruction.
