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!

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.
