Panesterra Inter-server Siege Live Beta Phase 2

Phase two of the Panesterra inter-server siege live beta testing starts on Sunday, December 14 at 7 PM Central. All Panesterra fortresses have been reset and the battle to claim the fortress will decide who has access to explore the zone and who moves on to battle the to-be Dragon Lord, Ahserion.

The changes and additions to inter-server beta phase two includes:

  • -    Fortress defense will be more difficult once a fortress is taken.
  • -    Panesterra zone exploration will be available to the conquering server faction.
  • -    Ahserion’s Flight siege will begin immediately after the Panesterra siege.

Panesterra Zone Access

After the Panesterra fortresses have been conquered, the conquering server faction will have access to the fortress and zone. A portal will spawn in the capital city for the appropriate fortress access. Quests for the zone can be picked up from the fortress and zone exploration will be available.

While the zone and fortress can be directly accessed by the server faction that owns it, those who have access to the other fortresses can also move between the zones (with some maneuvering) so be watchful as Panesterra is an open PvP zone where all other factions are your enemy!

 

Ahserion’s Flight

Beritra has been working on getting Ahserion ascended as the next Dragon Lord. With all the Ide in Panesterra, there is no better a place to achieve that. Ahserion’s ascension will take place in Panesterra amidst the all-out war between Daevas.

Immediately, after the Pantesterra fortress sieges, Ahserion’s Flight will become available. The siege is only open to those who hold the Panesterra Conqueror title and the title must be worn to enter. You will have 10 minutes to prep and enter from the portal spawned in the fortress. Here you will battle three other server factions for the title and reward from Ahserion.

While in Ahserion’s Flight, it is possible to eliminate a server faction from the siege entirely. For every server faction, a shield will spawn that must be protected by Daevas at all costs. Protect your shield while attempting to take down your enemies’ shield. The destruction of the shield will result in the immediate removal of the server faction that was supposed to protect it.

The siege will take a total of 70 minutes from start to end. You will still need to protect your shield when you battle with Ahserion. If you defeat Ahserion, he will drop a reward box that includes various items. Collect the reward box as soon as possible because once that timer reaches 70 minutes or your server faction is forced to exit the siege, you will be returned to your bind point with the rewards or not. 

Good luck, Daevas, and see you in game!

Frozen Magic Event

12102014_Frozen-Magic_detailpage.jpg

Snow fell early in Atreia and with the world charged with Aether and Ide, tiny crystals of Aether are sticking together and freezing in the cold snow. Frosterinerk has been collecting the aetherized snow and making snowballs to give to Daevas as a gift. She says the gifts are to remind Daevas of the sky we share under the shattered world. However, we know Shugos have no use for Aether as Daevas do so perhaps there are valuables to be found in the frozen magical snowballs?

Icon

Part One: Frosterinerk's Gift (Level 30+)

In the capital cities, talk to Frosterinerk daily to get (8) +1 Snowballs. To cultivate the aetherized snowballs, right-click or double-click on the snowball to enchant it to the next level. Enchant the snowball up to +10 to make the Brilliant Snowball. When you opening the Brilliant Snowball will get (1) Icy Shard and (1) Brilliant Fragment. Combine these items to get a Brilliant Ice Prism, which offers a random high value prize. If the snowball explodes at any point before +10, random prizes will automatically be redeemed into your inventory. You will get (1) Snowflake Crystal and a chance to get an Icy Shard, Ancient Coins, or other prizes. 

Additional snowballs can be looted from instances or purchased from the store. Snowballs with enchantment levels 6 and above have a chance to give an Icy Shard (+10 Snowballs will always give an Icy Shard as noted above), which can be combined with a Brilliant Fragment, also available on the store, to create the Brilliance Ice Prism.

Part Two: Snowflake Crystals (Level 30+)

If you use up all of your Snowballs from Frosterinerk, Wintrinerk will be more than happy to trade you a +1 Snowball for (10) Snowflake Crystals. Snowflake Crystals can only be acquired after a snowball explodes after attempting to enchant it.

Part Three: Joyful Bundle (Level 30+)

While Freeziman contemplates his existence as a talking snowman, he offers you a Joyful Bundle that you can pick up from him daily. Open the bundle to receive (1) [Event] Dye Bundle and (1) random buff scroll. Various types of buff scrolls can be acquired with many offering effects to all party members. If you have friends or Legion mates within similar levels and they have differing scrolls, try to group together to share the effects!

Panesterra Inter-server Siege Adjustment Period

There have been four Panesterra beta sieges since the launch of INVASION. During the seiges we've been collecting feedback and reviewing the results of the test period. This Sunday, December 7, 2014 there will be no Panesterra beta siege. The entrance portals will not spawn and access to the zone will not be available. We will be using the period to reset the Panesterra fortresses and make adjustments for the next live beta phase!

The Panesterra siege will resume on Sunday, December 14, 2014. This will be the start of phase two of the live beta. In phase 2, the conquering faction will have access to explore the conquered area during non-siege hours and the ultimate siege, Ahserion’s Flight, will be in play.

Panesterra Zone Access

Once the fortresses of all the zones in Panesterra are conquered, the zone access opens up for the entire conquering faction to explore and complete quests.

Ahserion’s Flight

Immediately after the Panesterra siege, Ahserion’s Flight siege will become available to the 400 conquering contenders of the four Panesterra fortresses. In this siege, it is 100v100v100v100. It is a race to reach and defeat Ahersion, whom Beritra is trying to ascend to be the next Dragon Lord.

We’ll have more information next week on the zone access and Ahserion’s Flight!


The Nether Dragon Challenge

There is a myth, spoken in whispers - the first Dragon Lords ascended through an ancient ritual. Nether Dragons, beings of creation and extreme power, were the catalyst of this ritual. They lie slumbering, locked in the core of each planetary realm. The first Dragon Lords to ascend linked their souls to these beings and became vessels of their tremendous power.

Momentous acts from the Dragon Lords, such as the ascension of Tiamat and the scorching of Kaldor by Fregion, have left imprints of the Nether Dragons’ power on the land. Elyos and Asmodians have brought their battles to these very grounds, breaking free small bits of energy – energy that feeds fire to fierce weaponry.

Getting your hands on one of these Nether Dragon weapons is no easy feat. To those that can prove their worth by defeating the most challengers, we offer a Nether Dragon weapon as a reward.

12032014_Nether-Dragon-Weapon2.jpg

- How to Participate -

Polish your weapon and armor as it’s open season in Levinshor and Kaldor! All level 65 players will be automatically entered for this event and it’s a race to number one in PVP! For the next four weeks, your unique PVP kills in Levinshor and Kaldor will determine if you score yourself a Nether Dragon King's Mythic weapon. You don’t need to worry about how your Songweaver will match up with a Gladiator as we will be looking for the top contender from each class per faction and server.

  1. All level 65 players PVPing in Levinshor and Kaldor are eligible.
  2. Rack up unique kills in Kaldor and Levinshor only. Unique means you can’t kill the same opponent over and over.
  3. Only PvP kills from December 3, 2014 until December 31, 2014 11:59 PM Central time will be eligible. Winners will be determined and notified by January 7, 2014.

If PVP isn’t much your style or you want to increase your odds of getting your hands on one of these weapons, all end game instances will also have a rare chance to drop boxes that contain either an Eternal or Mythic Nether Dragon weapon. Only the Mythic weapons have the swirling fiery dragon effect! The drops come in the form of a Mythic or Eternal weapon box, and it provides a random weapon when opened without regard to your class. However, the item is tradeable until it is soulbound. The only guarantee you'll get the appropriate weapon for your class is by becoming the top PVPer for your class, faction and server!

- Reward -

The eligible period for this event ends December 31, 2014 11:59 Central Time. We will calculate the top kills on a class by class basis for each server and faction. Winners will then receive (1) Nether Dragon King's Mythic weapon appropriate for their class. Winners will be announced by January 7, 2014.

 

See you on the battlefield, Daevas!
