Don your armor, sharpen your blades, conjure up your destructive magic - the first ever Blood Iron Tournament is nigh at hand. Roshers from around the globe will be battling for fame, prestige, honor, glory…and of course, fabulous prizes in an epic 3v3 gladiatorial contest which will determine the greatest trio in all of Asmara!
So select your companions and start strategizing. Winners will be receiving copious amounts of weapon shielding, which will undoubtedly help them in the next tournament… (TBD)
Sounds fun. How does it work?
First, you need to register your team (click here
). Each team will have 3 members, and each member must be a different race. Registration closes on Thursday, July 5th. The official tournament bracket will be posted on Friday, July 6th. You can find links to it on the web site, in the forums, and on the Facebook, and you’ll have all weekend to smack talk and strategize against your opponents.
The Tournament will be held on Tuesday, July 10th. All registered teams must be ready to do battle between 2:00pm and 7:00pm PDT. Check the bracket to know approximately what time you will be fighting.
The final battle will be held the following day, Wednesday July 11th at 3:00pm PDT. Spectators are welcome to attend and watch as the final 6 battle for victory!
How do I win?
The last team standing wins. All items and equipment are allowed EXCEPT FOR SCROLLS OF TRANSFORMATION. IF WE SEE YOU USE A THIS ITEM YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED IMMEDIATELY. Everything else is fair game!
It’s going to be a bloodbath! Where do we fight?
Don’t worry about that. GMs will have you fighting out in open world Asmara with PvP enabled. We’ll summon you when it’s your time to battle; you’ll know when and who you’re fighting, but you won’t know where! We will summon each character. If a teammate is not present, you must do battle without them or forfeit the fight.
What about my Moral Value (MV)?
We will reset MV to 0 after the fight for anyone who chooses to enter the tournament if they win and by request only. This means that if you’re a mean, dirty, outlaw vagabond with a red name you can wipe your record clean by enlisting in the tournament! GMs are being generous and will offer you pardons for your crimes.
On the other hand, if you’re a noble warrior with high Moral Value, you’re going to need to get your hands dirty.
My friends and I want to win fabulous prizes! How do we register?
You have two options for registering in the tournament:
Under Event Corner, post the names of all of your team members and a team name (optional). We only need 1 post per team.
2. Personal Letter (In-game mailbox)
If you prefer not to use the forums, you may mail a letter to [GM]FancyPants and he will make sure your team is registered on the official forum. The letter must contain the names of all of your team members and a team name (optional).
What’s the prize?
More weapon shielding than you’ll know what to do with. Hope you’ve got some time on your hands, because you’re going to be shielding and enchanting for days – we’re awarding 90 weapon shieldings to the three winners of this event (30ea).
We hear your cries loud and clear. PvP! PvP! One more time, here are the rules:
*You may only have 3 team members, and each member must be a different race.
*Register before 11:59pm PDT on Thursday, July 5th. Be sure to include you character names.
*Be ready to fight between 2:00pm and 7:00pm PDT on Tuesday, July 10th.
*If you advance to the final battle, be ready to fight again at 3:00pm PDT on Wednesday, July 11th.
*We’ll set you MV to 0 IF you win and IF you ask us nicely. We will not raise your MV if it is already above 0.
*You must register either on the forums or through the in-game mailbox. Only letters sent to [GM]FancyPants will be recognized.
Stock up on supplies, because the battle will be fierce. Best of luck to all combatants, and may the best team win!
