Weekend Warfront: Howling for Blood
After a holiday weekend off, the Weekend Warfronts are back…
…with another repeat?
Well, at least it has a new reward…
…but what the hell is it? And why do we still have the crappy potions?
Oh well. Let’s take a look at what we have in store this weekend!
The war-scarred landscape of Black Crag rings once again with the sounds of battle as Order and Destruction forces descend upon the Howling Gorge. Here among the labyrinthine gorges, the struggle for control of Dwarf engineered “boom-powder” ignites a conflagration of violence not seen in years.
Howling for Blood – Weekend Event (July 9th-12th, 2010)
The Howling Gorge scenario is open again for characters of all levels! Defeat your enemies! Intercept Black Powder Barrels to seal your victory! /howl at friends and enemies alike! Complete all four tasks to gain a unique title and remember to have a good time!
- Basic Reward – Level-appropriate Healing potion
- Advanced Reward – Level-appropriate Molotov potion
- Elite Reward – Celebratory Horn (Pocket Item)
So they have enough time to make a new end-reward item, but they can’t change the Basic and Advanced rewards? Come on, this is just getting ridiculous. You don’t have to make them amazing, just make them viable. People throw those away for the most part when they craft them, why the hell would anyone think they’d make a viable reward for an event, even a 3-day one? If you’re gonna leave them the stupid potions, at least make them the blue versions and stacks of 5-10. Not that anyone will care much even then, but it’s better than this crap. /rantoff
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.
Howling for Blood started on July 9th and will last until the morning of July 12th. 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 pull 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.
Like the zone it used to belong to, the Howling Gorge is a collection of twisting and winding pathways that can get one turned around in a heartbeat. Learn the map and its shortcuts and victory is yours!
Weekend Event Tasks
- Successfully plant 25 Powder Kegs (has to be you)
- Intercept 50 Powder Kegs (just cross paths with the person holding the bomb)
- /howl at a player of every career while in the Howling Gorge (howling at yourself counts!)
- Participate in the Howling Gorge scenario 20 times (Do it for the renown!)
- Complete all the Howling for Blood tasks
Soooo…same task list, different end reward. A decaying pocket item? Interesting. No clue what it does, but based on the tooltip, I’m speculating on dancing. 😉 But then…THERE’S NO DANCING IN WAR!!!!
I’m gonna try to get it anyways. I need the renown. See ya out there!
