Panesterra Inter-server Siege Live Beta Available November 9

Panesterra was once part of Balaurea, ruled by the ancient Danuar. After a mysterious explosion of Ide in Kaldor, Panesterra was forced into another dimension. Continued Ide experiments in this new zone only brought further destruction across the land, this desolation revealed in its jagged cliffs and precarious bases.

Soon after its rediscovery, Beritra’s Special Forces have claimed Panesterra as their territory. They’ve taken advantage of its seemingly endless Ide resources, finally developing successful dimensional teleportation technology. At long last, Beritra is ready to  launch his assault on Atreia. Daevas are called into battle to drive out Beritra’s forces and prevent the opposing faction from gaining the upper hand—it is a relentless, all-hands-on-deck battle for dominance.

Panesterra is the ultimate siege, where 100 players from each server and faction will be pitted against each other. Nobody is your ally except your server’s faction. Claim victory for your server faction and together you will all bask in all the glory this exciting new zone has to offer.

Live Beta Period

While testing for accuracy of the siege capabilities and functions, the first weeks of the siege will be considered a beta test.  The first siege will be available on Sunday, November 9, after the update launch, and subsequently on Sundays. We will be using this period to collect feedback and make any adjustments deemed necessary. Because it is a beta test, participants can expect some issues, but we will do our best in resolving them quickly.

During the first few weeks, only sieging will be available. Over the course of the testing, we will open additional aspects of Panesterra, such as allowing exploration of the zone/fortress for the victorious server faction and, ultimately, the Ahserion Fortress siege, which will only be available to members of the four server factions who have conquered the Panesterra zones.

First Siege: Sunday, November 9, 2014 at 7 PM Server Time – Siege Only

When the siege starts, each server faction will be placed across four Panesterra zones. Two server factions will be placed on each zone to face off and conquer the vulnerable fortress. The pairing of each server faction will be random.
