Wartune 2 Continued
Non-Advanced System Changes
Flame Temple15 v 15 PVP Battleground. 20 Min Length. Open 13:00 – 23:00
There are 3 Totem Poles. A player can take a flag (15 seconds to pick up) from their base to a totem and place it (15 seconds to place). Each totem under control earns the team points.
Tiamat InvasionMP Boss Fight Map – Costs 60 Stamina to join. Go with a team of up to 4. 20 Bosses appear in Ascending Order of Strength. Once you kill one the previous, the next will appear. Time Limit of 20 minutes, players dead have a 30 second resurrection cd before fighting again. Similar to fighting World Boss, the other 3 players help lower the hp. Drops are determined by random dice rolls.
Cross Server Guild Battles7 Week Season. Fights every Saturday (Sunday for Class War weeks) to not interfere with normal Guild Battles. Guild Leader MUST register (this costs guild contribution). When 24 or more Guilds Register a League is formed. If an odd number of Guilds, 1 Guild will get a bye each week, get some sort of lucky prize (It’s confusing right now)
>Weeks 1-4 – Preliminary Rounds. Matchups are random. Score is the final Guild Points each side has at the end of the guild battle. Rankings at the end of Week 4 is your TOTAL score from all 4 Guild Battles.
>Weeks 5-7 – Finals – 4 Brackets based on Preliminary Round Rankings. #1-8 = Diamond Group, #9-16 = Gold Group, #17-24 = Silver Group, #25+ = Iron Group. Diamond – Silver Groups have Bracket Guild Battle such as normal Guild Battles. Iron Group faces similar ranked Guilds.
>Battle Process – 40 Players per Guild. Guild Leader/Assistant Leaders can select 10 teams of 4. Players can collect up to 100 resources and bring them back to their base for points. If player is killed, other side gets 10% of the resource point value. There are 5 Guard Towers, each start neutral and can be occupied by 1 team of 4 at any one time. When destroyed they take 2 minutes to revive and come back as neutral again. Every so often the Guild gets points for occupying these. Each Guild may summon up to 5 chariots. These chariots can go unmanned or players can enter it. Chariots can attack players, or other chariots. No Ward tower to attack, chariot goes around until destroyed. 10,000 Points is required to win the Guild Battle. King’s Seals are awarded for each individual battle, at the end of Preliminaries, and at the end of Finals and can be exchanged in the King Shop for Mount Cards, God Cast Vulcan’s Hammers, Soul Imprints/Stones, Gold Boxes, Sylphs, etc…King’s Seals are cleared before the next Season of Guild Battles, you cannot save them between seasons
Players above level 36 can get engaged. You must be friends to do this. One must buy the “Engagement Ring” in the mall to propose. If the proposal is refused you get the ring back. There are 3 weddings, small, medium, and large. The bigger the wedding, the greater the rewards. Once the wedding is set, you have the chapel for 2 hours. Once the wedding is complete, both players get a permanent buff, a wedding ring in place of the engagement ring and new skills. The wedding ring can be upgraded based on the player’s friendship. Players can complete married quests together up to 10 a day. Players get a special tree that can be harvested twice a day and watered every hour. If either player chooses to, they can spend balens to get a divorce. Both players will lose all Marriage buffs, skills, etc…

Removed. Replaced with a 4 v 4 Team Arena. Entry times are the same, insignia rewards are the same, and the 15 battle limit is the same, but all players start in the Iron Group. Every week based on points players are then placed in Diamond (top), Gold, Silver, and Iron (bottom) groups based on last week’s points. At the end of the week, players get rewards based on their final ranking. As expected, the best rewards are for those in the Diamond Group.
