Weekend Warfront: Battle at the Gate
This week, the warfront returns to the rolling hills of Ellyrion for the Battle at the Gate!
The tasks have been adjusted and look a lot better than last time around.
Let’s take a look at what the weekend has in store!
The Phoenix Gate guards the entrance to the inner lands of Ulthuan; soft rolling landscapes where in more peaceful ages the Ellyrion Horselords bred Elven Steeds. Now the plains are filled with signs of war – siege engines and corpses litter the landscape as Order and Destruction forces vie for control of the Phoenix Gate and all that lies beyond.
Battle at the Gate – Weekend Warfront (June 18th – 21st, 2010)
The Phoenix Gate scenario is open again for characters of all levels! Struggle for control of flags: claim your enemy’s flag and deliver it safely to your side, intercept enemy flag bearers and slaughter their comrades in arms. Beat your enemies into submission and claim a 500 point victory at the Phoenix Gate!
- 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 Gate started on June 18th and will last until June 21st. 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.
The map remains the same, but the rules are back to normal it seems. No more flag-capture-only for points. This time, it’s back to a down-and-dirty brawl.
I liked how the flag capture encouraged teamwork, but hey, killing works for me too.
Weekend Event Tasks
- Participate in the Phoenix Gate scenario 10 times
- Defeat 200 enemy realm players in the Phoenix Gate scenario
- Win a Phoenix Gate scenario with 500 points
- Defeat or help defeat 10 enemy flag runners.
- Complete all Battle at the Gate tasks
So they took everyone’s feedback to heart it seems in regards to the tasks from last time. All killing, no fuss. We’ll see if they got the code right for “help defeat”. If so, that could fix a TON of complaints about kill tasks going forward.
Now if they’d just do something about the rewards already…
