Weekend Warfront: Battle at the Cairn
About time they brought this one back. In my opinion, it was one of the first with a truly viable Task List.
While one of the Tasks is rather difficult, it’s not impossible.
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 (December 10th – 13th, 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.
- Advanced 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 December 10th and will continue through December 13th. 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!
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.
With the updated reward system in place as well as the Matchmaking System, this could turn out to be a great Weekend Warfront.
