War of the Roses Regular Season
The regular season of the War of the Roses will begin on July 14th (Sun) for all regions.
 
We would like to first express our gratitude to all adventurers from across the globe who participated in the War of the Roses pre-season and provided valuable feedback. Changes have been applied for the regular War of the Roses season based on adventurer feedback, and from the dynamics and flow of the pre-season.
 
The main direction of the regular season is the expansion of comeback strategy and components.
 
Considering the frustration felt when not being able to overcome disadvantageous situations, changes have been made to resurrection. These changes include allowing for better defensive formations, let sanctums be successfully captured as part of a comeback strategy (which are then protected for a certain period), and the addition of a new Captain skill to enhance strategic elements.
 
We have ensured that those excellent strategic maneuvers made under the command of a Leading Guild is made prominent when successful.
 
The Spirit's Altar, which grants powerful buffs, will now act as a trigger of battles for control when both sides are in formation, allowing more strategic operations when capturing sanctums or when placing members of the Third Legion and the Leading Guild.
 
Rewards in the regular season of the War of the Roses have also been changed. The Leading Guild, as the main protagonist of the War of the Roses, will receive higher rewards compared to the Third Legion.
 
However, the Third Legion will be able to obtain additional loot, Medal of Sylvia. This medal is awarded to the Third Legion for faithfully completing missions assigned by the Leading Guild, serving not only as a reward but also as a means to unite the Leading Guild and the Third Legion towards a common objective. (The types and times of missions assigned by the Leading Guild will be further diversified in the future.)
 
We hope adventurers are looking forward to the War of the Roses on July 14th (Sun), and we encourage the brilliant efforts of the O'dyllita and Kamasylvia faction leaders.
 
Thank you.

Spirit's Altar

While targeting the Commander during the War of the Roses is a given, you can obtain Advantageous buffs during overall combat at the Spirit's Altar. During the Pre-Season, depending on the region, there were situations where the Spirit's Altar was occupied from the beginning, leading to an early advantage.
In the regular season, the Spirit's Altar has been changed to activate after a certain period, allowing for a more natural progression of combat from occupying each Sanctum in the early stages to fighting for the Spirit's Altar once the frontlines are established.
 
  • Changed the activation time of the Spirit's Altar at the start of the War of the Roses as follows.
* As before, once the Spirit's Altar is activated, there will be a 20-minute cooldown until the next activation.
Before After
Spirit's Altar activates at the start of the War of the Roses Spirit's Altar activates 10 minutes after the War of the Roses starts
 


Resurrection Method Change

Before, when dying during the War of the Roses, you were able to resurrect at the frontlines of the opponent's territory, often leading to continued attacks before a counter-strategy could be prepared. Now, you cannot resurrect at the frontlines of the occupied Sanctum, allowing for more strategic responses to threats against allied Sanctums.
 
  • Changed the resurrection method during the War of the Roses as follows.
Before After
Resurrect at a chosen occupied Sanctum Cannot resurrect at occupied Sanctums on the frontlines
(Can resurrect at the previous stage Sanctum)
Sanctums are displayed on the tactical map at the top, middle, and lower regions, and is configured as follows:            
- Top: N2, N3, N4, S5, S4, S3, S2            
- Middle: N5, N6, N7, S8, S7, S6            
- Lower: N8, N9, N10, S10, S9            
 
Upon death, you cannot resurrect at a Sanctum that is occupied at the frontline of each attack route in the top/middle/lower sections, but you can resurrect at a Sanctum of the previous level.            
(The following is an example of Sanctums unavailable for resurrection (frontline Sanctums) according to the occupied Sanctums of each attack route of the Kamasylvia Faction.)            
Attack Route E.g. of Occupied Sanctums E.g. of Unavailable (frontline) Sanctums
Top Attack Route N2, N3, N4 N4
Middle Attack Route N5, N6, N7 N7
Lower Attack Route N8, N9, N10 N10

 


Sanctum Guardian
After a succeeding with a comeback strategy, Sanctum Guardian will receive an invincibility buff for a certain period to maximize the effect of the comeback to the frontlines.
 
  • Changed the Sanctum Guardians to receive a 3 min invincibility buff when successfully occupying an enemy-held Sanctum during the War of the Roses.
 


Captain Skills

A New Captain skill Strategic Revival has been be added. With this skill, you can choose to resurrect at a designated Sanctum regardless of its occupation status (even if it is the opponent's Sanctum). This allows for different strategies, such as cutting off the opponent's connected Sanctums. It can be used after Rally Forces to continue an attack, or in conjunction with Obscure Vision to create chaos on the battlefield.
 
  • Added 1 new skill to the 6 exclusive Captain skills in the War of the Roses.

War of the Roses Rewards

Appropriate loot will be rewarded for the regular season of the War of the Roses. The Leading Guild, which takes the lead in the War of the Roses and drives it to victory, will obtain more rewards than the Third Legion. Of course, as the Third Legion also participates in the War of the Roses with the same objectives, they will receive rewards as well. The more missions assigned by the Leading Guild that the Third Legion successfully completes, the more personal rewards they will obtain. The Third Legion must diligently carry out the missions from the Leading Guild to seize both victory and loot.

Leading Guild and the Third Legion Loot
