Isle of Conquest Preview

Isle of Conquest Preview - MMORPG.com

The Isle of Conquest is a new battleground to be included in the upcoming 3.2 Patch to World of Warcraft.

The Isle of Conquest features Horde and Alliance keeps, which teams of 40 players per side will have to duke it out over. Scattered around the battlefield are various objectives to capture as well, with each providing useful bonuses to leverage against the opposing side.

For example, one such objective is the Airship Hangar, which when captured allows players to board an airship and parachute down into the enemy keep.

Main Objectives

The Keeps: The Horde and Alliance keeps sit at opposite ends of the island. These citadels host four easily accessible defensive cannons set on the ramparts, capable of unleashing hot fury onto oncoming attackers. Additional explosives sit safely stowed in the base of the keep along the back wall. At least, they're safe as long as they don't fall into enemy hands. If they do, though, they can be employed to bring the stone walls down from within.

The General: Holed up behind the keeps' massive walls, the generals command their forces from a position of relative safety. Should the keep fall and the general be slain, the Isle of Conquest will fall to the victor.

Reinforcements: Isle of Conquest uses a reinforcements system similar to that of Alterac Valley. The clock is ticking and every individual counts. If too many of your comrades fall to the enemy the battle will end in defeat. Killing enemy players will reduce their reinforcements by one for each kill, Once your faction's reinforcements reach their limit, so too does your bid for control of the island and the wealth of resources you've fought so hard over.
