Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning News - 100% RvR City Siege Details Unveiled

Posted by Michael Bitton on Apr 14, 2010  | 43 comments in our forums

Warhammer Online Community Coordinator Andy Belford has posted the full details on the 100% RvR City Siege overhaul which was teased in a recent Producer's Letter focused on patch 1.3.5. The aim with this change is to shift the WAR campaign to be 100% RvR driven, and to that end City Sieges are now going to be 24 vs. 24 battles with multiple stages where both the invaders and defenders will have a chance to earn the game's best loot, and this includes Sovereign armor! With the completion of each stage, the winning realm will roll on a number of loot bags just like a PQ. Those who do not win a bag (including all of the losing realms side) will have Crests deposited right into their inventory. A Scenario Crest will also be rewarded to the winning realm.

City Sieges will consist of three stages, read below for a breakdown:

Stage 1

  • Setup Phase: 5 Minutes
  • Duration: 15 Minutes (Maximum: 45 Minutes… details included in the description)
  • Invader's Win Condition: Breach the Palace Gates
  • Defender's Win Condition: Hold Out (until the timer expires)
  • Reward Lockout Duration: Approximately 20 Hours
Stage 2
  • Duration: 30 Minutes
  • Invader's Win Condition: Escort Either Allied Warlord to the Palace Gates or Defeat Enemy Warlords
  • Defender's Win Condition: Escort Either Allied Warlord to the Palace Gates or Defeat Enemy Warlords
  • Reward Lockout Duration: Approximately 44 Hours
Stage 3
  • Duration: 30 Minutes
  • Invader's Win Condition: Defeat the Enemy King
  • Defender's Win Condition: Defeat the Enemy King
  • Reward Lockout Duration: Approximately 68 Hours
