Weekend Warfront: Talabec Massacre
This weekend heralds a return to Talabec Dam.
While it’s a complete repeat with no visible changes, it’s at least a fun map with decent tasks, so…
Here we go again!
The hastily constructed Talabec Dam is both a triumph of villager engineering and a potential disaster in the making, a disaster which forces of Destruction are bent on exploiting to their advantage. Now Order and Destruction converge upon the single blocked finger of the Talabec in a struggle for the lives of innocent citizens.
Talabec Massacre – Weekend Warfront (July 30th – August 2nd, 2010)
The Talabec Dam scenario is open again for characters of all levels! Intercept and deliver Bombs to gain points for your side, slaughter enemy realm players and claim a flawless victory in order to receive a unique title!
- Basic Reward – Twisting Tentacle Pie
- Advanced Reward – Vanquisher’s Boon – Buff that awards extra Emblems from Scenarios based on the score.
- Elite Reward – Medal of Brawn/Medal of Perseverance – Live Event Slot item with 5d decay timer (Random)
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.
Talabec Massacre started on July 30th and will last until August 2nd. 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 map should be fairly familiar by now seeing as how we’ve seen it repeated a few times already.
For the love of all that’s holy, run the bomb to the right drop-off point please. Order takes it to the Dam (bottom of map), Destruction takes it to the Windmill (top of map). IT’S NOT THAT HARD TO FIGURE OUT!!! 🙂
Oh, and feel free to pad your kill count with all the livestock. Good times, good times.
Weekend Event Tasks
- Successfully deliver 2 Bombs during the Talabec Dam scenario
- Intercept 5 Bomb Bearers
- Defeat 100 enemy realm players
- Participate in the Talabec Dam scenario 15 times
- Win a Talabec Dam scenario with 500 points
- Complete all Talabec Massacre tasks
Of major note is the changed reward items. The Vanquisher’s Boon seems to have taken up a permanent location in the Advanced slot which is perfect in my opinion. The Elite reward will now be a chest that grants a Live Event Slot item with a random rarity that last for 5 days. Not bad. I like the random rarity because it means that even when a real Live Event comes along and you get one from that, you may swap it out for the shorter-duration one from these if you get the ultra-rare version. Time will tell if we see the Basic slot keep the Pie or not though. Personally, I’d like to see it rotate through random 5-stacks of fun items myself.
For the Task List this week, running the bomb could be the tricky part for some classes, but they’ve lowered the amount of times you need to do it which is good. I’d expect you’d need a pre-made to pull it off as a squishy most of the time. Good luck!

If they changed the title, be sure to let me know. They haven’t in the past though.
