In Haradan there are special places. Sometimes it seems as though they are living creatures that feed on human blood. The alarm bell never ceases to ring there, summoning soldiers to fierce battle. These are places for which the emperors Arq and Kraen are ready to send new units to their deaths. The faction that seizes this territory gets a strategic advantage, which could affect the course of the entire war. These places are called battlefields. And you can become one of the volunteers, to defend the honor and interests of their faction on the battlefield.
Two teams of three each can enter the battlefield. One division represents the Free League, the second the Steel Cohort. Don’t worry if you still haven’t chosen a faction. You can still join in on the side of the faction whose army does not have enough soldiers.
If you want to join the bloodbath of the battlefield, you need to get in line. Please select the "Battlefield" option in the upper menu. Here you can see the number of players in your level group, take a look at the current battlefields, and click on "Stand in Line" to take part in the bloody battle. However, if you have an injury, you will not be allowed to enter the battlefield.
As soon as the divisions of both factions are formed, they will arrive on the battlefield and the battle will begin. When your time comes, you will get a system message with an invitation. You can accept the challenge or reject it. If you accept, you will immediately find yourself on the battlefield, where you will wait for your allies and enemies.
If you reject the invitation, you will not be able to queue again for 1 hour. If the notification of the impending battle is received during another battle, you have 5 minutes to complete the current fight and confirm your participation in the battlefield. If you fail to do this, you will be able to get back in the queue again only after 1 hour.
The emperors Arq and Kraen cannot stand desertion. Fighters who flee the battlefield early may not participate in a battle for 3 hours. In addition, they receive a penalty, consuming as much heroism as they would have received in the event of victory. Their place is taken by another soldier, waiting in line. If one of the teams has no remaining warriors, the battle will be considered a technical draw.
Each battlefield has its own rules and conditions for victory. To capture the Aridian Mines, your team should be the first to earn 250 points. After killing an enemy, you will receive 20 points. By killing a miner from the enemy team, you can receive an Aridian nugget, which you should put in the repository. For a large piece of Aridian you get 40 points, a medium piece is worth 30, and a small piece 20. For killing a guard at the outpost of the enemy faction you get a total of 100 points. The team that performs all the necessary tasks to win is deemed victorious and receives heroism points and Aridian Mine Hero reputation.
The losing team also receives an award, but it is much smaller. If the battle ends in a tie, both teams receive the same reward. In addition to awards for completing the battle, you can receive various bonuses during the battle (for example, Aridian nuggets).
Nuggets handed in have a positive impact on the heroism of the procurer. The increase in heroism depends on the value of the nuggets handed into the repository. However, heroism will be given only to those who have made a real contribution to the victory. Points that exceed the winning score will be counted, but they are not transformed into heroism. That is, if you only need 20 points to win, and you hand in a couple of nuggets worth 90, you only get heroism for the first nugget delivered.
You can earn Aridian Mines Hero reputation by achieving a series of several "underground" victories. To earn reputation it is enough to ensure that your team has won the battle for Aridian twice in succession. However, the reward will be greater if you win 3, 4, or preferably as much as 5 times! You'll get reputation for each successive victory after the first one, and each time the prize becomes more impressive. After losing, or after your fifth victory in a row the victory "meter" is reset, and you can start from the beginning.
For a series of 2 victories you receive 20 reputation (to 4000)
For a series of 3 victories you receive 30 reputation (to 5000)
For a series of 4 victories you receive 40 reputation (to 6000)
For a series of 5 victories you receive 50 reputation (to 7000)
In the start area of ??the battlefield, players can use a ritual chalice to receive benefits, and increase their combat abilities to the maximum level in their category.
A battle cannot last forever, so Battlefields have a life-span. If none of the teams manage to perform the tasks necessary to win in the allotted time, the battle ends, and the victory is awarded to the team that was closer to winning.
A warrior can randomly end up in one of several groups, in each of which they will be able to show off their skills! In order for you to have at least some idea of who will share your fate, check out the table below, which shows the level groups of warriors and their possible opponents.
|Number of level group
If you have taken part in a battle on the battlefield, then you have the opportunity to get to one of several appropriate group levels. So, if you are level 15, you can join a fight where warriors from levels 13-15 are fighting (in this case you do not need anyone's help), or a battle where warriors from levels 14-17 are fighting (then you can drink from the ritual chalice to raise your level to 17 and improve your combat abilities). Or maybe you'll end up in a fight between level 15-18 warriors! Here the ritual chalice will again come in handy, to reach level 18 and match the enemy.
To navigate on the battlefield and to see your team-mates, use the map. Location transfers can be made either through the mini-map, or through the list of locations in the menu on the right.
(to zoom in, click on the image)
You can see a list of teams and the current score by using the Statistics menu on the Battlefields map. In the Battlefields there is a separate chat for each group. It is not linked to the location in which you are.
Transfers take a certain amount of time. To speed this up use mounts or Spheres of Speed. Stock up on military supplies ahead of time, or acquire them immediately after the start of the battle. To do this, call into the shop in the start area.
In the Battlefields option, you can familiarize yourself with the battle rules, the awards, and also the history. Just click on Information or History in the left corner.
Haradan doctors recommend frequent participation in the battlefields. This keeps you in shape, strengthens your immune system and increases your self-confidence. And most importantly – it increases your Heroism!
