Territory War Procedures
Basics
When the Territory War begins you will be placed in your team's camp where you will have to wait 5 minutes before using the portals to venture out to the battlefield. The teams will be as evenly divide as possible based on all the guilds participating and how many members there are per guild. Each base has 3 portals leading into the battlefield, each portal leads to a specific area on the map. When the time reaches zero, the portal will teleport you to it's spawn location.

Team Base Composition
Each base has 3 red portals leading from the base to the battlefield.



Each side's base contains one merchant NPC.



The merchant NPC sells you both potions and war machine blue prints.



The war machine blue prints are 500g per and the funds are subtracted from a guilds treasury. Only guild members with access to the guild treasury can buy blue prints. The blue prints require material reagents and gold to fusion. The materials currently required are:

  • blue coral mushroom x 1
  • sunlight diamond x 1
  • black hole energy x 1


The blue print and war machine will disappear after each territory war so you have to buy new ones each time. In each base there is also a territory war quest giver.

Territory War Objective



Your objective is to attack the 4 neutral Zone Crystals in the center of the map while fending off the opposing team. Each Zone Crystal, when captured, will either be RED or BLUE. The top 3 guilds with the highest DPS on the Zone Crystal will capture the crystal and hold it until the end of the war. They will be given 8.33 percent towards winning the territory per crystal. Only guilds level 4 and higher can capture a crystal.

It is king of the hill/crystals. Take as many crystal as you can and prevent your enemy from doing the same. Try to hold on to the crystal for as long as you can. Only the guilds with their name on the crystal when the war ends will have a chance to win the territory. Additional Warchests will be awarded to those who partake in the capture of a crystal at the end of the war.

Winning a Territory
When time runs out and the war has ended, a winning guild will be chosen from those who are in possession of a crystal. Having the highest percent does not guarantee you a win but does improve your chances of winning.

War Machines
The war machine are powerful weapons of destruction, but they do have limitation. They can not harm each other but can be brought to bear on players. Zone Crystals are immune to the war machines' damage.

Personnel Carrier

  • Holds 8 players.
  • Only the driver is injured when attacked.

Territory War Battlefields
Territory War consists of 3 different maps, 2 of which each have their own unique game-play features.
These maps get rotated through-out the week.

Fury Gem Battlefield



On this battlefield, totems (signified by a blue skull and cross-bone icon on the map) will randomly spawn throughout the map during the duration of the war.

The first player to attack the totem will be transformed into a large ice troll and only be able to use the 3 skills provided, similar to how the Monster Arena works.

While in this form, the player can not attack the Zone Crystals.
It's basically impossible to kill a player that is in this form, and they are able to kill enemy players with a single hit.
The player will remain in this form for 3-4 minutes and a new totem will spawn.

Crystal Island Battlefield



In the center of this battlefield is located a monster NPC (signified by a blue skull and cross-bone icon on the map), that once killed, will spawn 2 new monsters.
The monsters that are spawned are at random near 2 of the Zone Crystals.

The spawned monsters attempt to take down the targeted Zone Crystals, and can do so in only a few hits.
They are very powerful and virtually impossible to kill.

After 5 minutes the 2 monsters disappear and the targeted Zone Crystals are free to be re-captured if taken down.

Starkgem's Battlefield



This battlefield has no added game-play features.

Benefits
