Weekend Warfront: Battle at the Cairn
~peruses the Task List for this weekend’s Warfront~
…oh my…could it be true?…it might be…
This weekend in Blood of the Black Cairn, they may have just created a viable Task List!
The isle of Ulthuan is all too familiar with the bitter tale of brother turning against brother. In places the rage and hatred of familial betrayal have seeped into the land, turning the sites of ancient struggles into magical wellsprings of dark power. Now a new battle erupts as Order and Destruction forces vie for control of the Blackcairn Estate.
Battle at the Cairn – Weekend Warfront (June 4th – 7th, 2010)
The Blood of the Black Cairn scenario is open again for characters of all levels! Hold as many objectives as you can while continuing to advance. Charge forth, defeat your enemies and earn a decisive victory at the site of the Blackcairn family’s historic shame.
- 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.
Battle at the Cairn started on June 4th and will continue through June 7th. 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.
Such a fabulous map and so horribly played by most people. lol. Lots of room for solo and small-group maneuvering here, however keep in mind the objective is to capture or steal points and ultimately you’ll have to duke it out 12 v 12 at that middle point to dominate. However, if you’re pushed back to your spawn, don’t be afraid to send someone to the far objective to ninja it and reset the objectives!
Weekend Event Tasks
- Win a Blood of the Black Cairn scenario with 500 points
- Defeat or help defeat 500 enemy realm players
- Control all five objectives when the Blood of the Black Cairn scenario ends
- Complete all Battle at the Cairn tasks
Well, it took them a while, but they finally came up with a Task List that relies on skill and teamwork as opposed to repetition. I like that it has a decent level of difficulty associated with it as well.
If they had fixed the reward system prior to this one going Live, I’d be declaring this a perfect success already. Sadly, the rewards are still junk so they get an A-.
Hopefully they’ll get on that for the next one. I look forward to the day when we can do these and be a little excited every time we complete a Task. Currently, most just don’t care until they get the final one. Even then, I never turn them in, I just take my title and go home. hehe. Speaking of…
