* In addition, the top 5 guilds/alliances (excluding the guild/alliance who became Lord) remaining at the end of a Conquest War can obtain Burning Spirit Rewards (150 million Silver’s worth in Gold Bars, Resplendent Medal of Honor x10) based on their rank.
- Changed rewards when the point system is applied to now be based on the time elapsed from the moment combat begins in a Conquest War.
- Guilds (alliances) whose Command Post/Field HQ are destroyed within 1 hour of a Conquest War starting will now be issued a Fighting Spirit Reward (250 million Silver’s worth in Gold Bars, Resplendent Medal of Honor x36).
- Guilds (alliances) whose Command Post/Field HQ are destroyed 1 hour after a Conquest War begins will now be issued at the very least a Burning Inspiration Reward, as their rank will be determined at the moment of destruction.
* If there were less than 6 guilds/alliance remaining at the end of a Conquest War, the rewards will be issued based on the order Command Post/Field HQs were destroyed.
|For example, if there are only 4 guilds (alliances) remaining by the end of a Conquest War, the guild (alliance) who ranks 1st in points will become the Lord and be issued the Glorious Victor Reward, while the other 3 guilds (alliances) who rank 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place in points will be issued a Burning Spirit Reward (V), (IV), and (III), respectively (2nd to 6th place will be awarded 300 to 700 million Silver’s worth in Gold Bars, Resplendent Medal of Honor x36 each).
