Weekend Warfront: Stonetroll Slaughter
The new patch is fully underway and after a weekend to break it in, it’s time for another Weekend Warfront!
This week we visit Stonetroll Crossing.
Yeah…you remember…the Scenario where the point is to avoid the enemy…
Small contingents of Order and Destruction forces converge upon the main north-south route through Troll Country in an effort to secure the strategic trade route for their respective sides…without attracting the attention of wandering trolls.
Stonetroll Slaughter – Weekend Warfront (May 28th – 31st, 2010)
The Stonetroll Crossing scenario is open again for characters of all levels! Take control of the Troll Pacifier for your realm! Use the Whack-a-Troll to mow down as many trolls as possible! Charge forth, and remember: the only good troll is a dead troll.
- 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.
Stonetroll Slaughter started on May 28th and will continue through May 31st. 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.
Yeah, so, for those that have never seen this scenario before or who just don’t remember, it’s all about transporting the flag around to the three locations within an allotted time period to gain points. Or you could just kill people. In the face.
If you choose to move the flag, try to go as a group as you’ll have the other Realm attempting to kill you continuously. Granted, if your side has a good spawn camp going, you might be able to run it solo…if you’re not squishy as at least one stealther will be out there trying to get you. Good luck with that.
Weekend Event Tasks
- Take control of the Troll Pacifier 5 times
- Find and utilize a Whack-a-Troll to kill 20 trolls
- Participate in the Stonetroll Crossing scenario 15 times
- Complete all Stonetroll Slaughter tasks
While the Troll Pacifier is nothing new, the Whack-a-Troll is. Here’s what both look like, just in case you can’t seem to find them.
I’m not sure why a big, rotting flag pacifies trolls, but hey. Picking this up is on a cast timer and breaks in combat, so try to clear the opposing Realm first. Or be a sneaky pink tank like me. ~giggle~ You only get a short timer to get the flag to each Objective, so once you pick it up, don’t mess around. Get to the Objective and move on. Once you’ve pacified all three groups of trolls, it resets back to its mountaintop perch. Rinse & Repeat.
The munitions box should be in or right outside your spawn area. Make sure to stop and pick up this fun little item. It’s got endless uses with no timer other than the GCD.
Once you pick it up, it appears in your inventory. Drag it to your toolbar and fire away! It tosses a grenade to the troll you have targeted and insta-gibs it.
~steeplefingers~ Now if I can only get it to work on certain players…
