Yesterday we have started the hunt for souls in the Empire. Soul Harvesters are already squeezing every little bit out of their enemies. If you want to know why they are doing this and what you can do to step in their footsteps then please continue reading in our Feature Highlight for the Reaper’s Wrath!
“Summer is over, yet Autumn has come
and this years October will be second to none!
The nights are getting longer and darkness ensues,
but oh boy have you heard about our spy’s latest news:
Being brought back to life, the dead seem to rise!
They may look normal to you, but they’re cloaked in disguise.
They’re roaming our lands, hunting for souls so sweet,
in an event true to the motto of the known “trick or treat”!
So you’d better be prepared and think good about your path,
for you might face your doom during ‘The Reaper’s Wrath’!”
Halloween is not only prone to rhymes but also one of the year’s most celebrated events. That’s why this year we are also going to have a dedicated Halloween-event in our Great Empire fittingly named “The Reaper’s Wrath”. We provided you with a short overview of this event in the “Our Plans for Q4 2018”-thread, but now it’s time to showcase this event to you.
This thrilling event will run from the 24th of October until the 31st of October!
During “The Reaper’s Wrath” you’ll join the dead in their hunt for souls:
- You’ll receive a specific amount of a new event-specific currency – called “souls” – with each passing day of the event
- You’ll be able to actually steal a specific amount of said souls from other players as well, to further increase your own amount of souls
- The total amount of souls at the end of this event will determine your end reward (the more, the better)
- There will be no top rewards, only activity rewards in this event!
- This event will also have a shop (which you will see in the screenshot below)
- You will be able to buy special decorations, with Fusion Level 52 + 350 Public Order (29,999 rubies) and Fusion Level 30 + 250 Public Order (2000 rubies)
- You can also buy the look item “Ring of ruin”, which turns your castle into a truly thrilling Fortress, so-called Soul snatchers which enable you to get retrieve your collected souls immediately (without delay), etc.
New Castle Skins – The Reaper’s Wrath
As mentioned before there will be new skins for your castles in our great Empire, coming with this event and their scary looks will truly strike fear into your enemies hearts!!!
Look-item artifact: Ring of ruin
You will be able to purchase them with rubies, as well as via the event rewards for 30.000 souls. They are only cosmetic skins though, which means, that there will be no stats bonuses for them. Those new castle skins are permanent, but you can’t slot them with gems.
Q.: Is it possible to support my alliance members if they receive an event-attack during the “Reaper’s Wrath”?
A.: Yes, you will be able to support and help your fellow alliance members in their defence to fend off special event-attacks in our “Reaper’s Wrath” event.
Q.: Is there a maximum amount of event-attacks per day?
A.: No, there won’t be a maximum amount of event-attacks per day!
We also need to adjust one of our previous questions/answers due to a misunderstanding that occurred in our communication, which deals with the amount of stolen souls per attack:
Q.: Which level do i need to participate in the “Reaper’s Wrath” hunt for souls?
A.: Everyone with an XP-Level of 10 or above will be able to participate in the event.
Q.: How are the attacks working during the “Reaper’s Wrath”?
A.: Well first and foremost your attacks will be anonymous and there will be a special event attack icon shown to you when clicking on another players castle. Your attacks will actually not harm your opponent (no stolen resources, no killed enemy units, no burned enemy buildings, etc.) and you also won’t lose your own unitsand/or any tools while attacking and/or defending. The only thing that will get stolen though are the souls that you were able to collect and the normal PvP cooldown will also apply for these attacks. Your event attacks will also not end the protection mode. Remember that this applies only to the special event attacks though. Normal attacks will still follow the known rules of normal attacks.
This following screenshot will show you how the special event attack icon will look like:
Q.: Will we be able to attack outposts during this event as well?
A.: The special event attacks we previously mentioned will only be possible on the main castles of other players. You’d be able to use this special attack with your outposts though. Of course you can still attack other outposts in general but just not with the special event attacks and they won’t help you out for the event… and might cause a war.
Q.: How can I obtain souls during this event?
A.: You will receive a certain amount of souls at the beginning of the event plus a percentage(%) of your current amount of sails with each passing day in addition. Of course you will also be able to “collect” or rather steal said souls from your enemies by attacking them with the previously mentioned special event attacks. But beware: your fellow competitors will also be able to steal them from you in return.
Q.: Is there a maximum amount of souls which I can steal from my opponents?
A.: Per special event
In addition to
Q.: How will the reward distribution look like?
A.: Your rewards will depend on the amount of souls that you collected at the end of the event. You will actually get all rewards of the lower reward brackets of this event. Let us explain this to you with an example:
If you have 100.000 souls at the end of the event, then you will get the reward for 1.000, 10.000 and 100.000 souls. So this means that you will not only get the reward from the highest bracket that you’re able to reach, but also from the ones that are below it. After all this is our version of a Halloween event and tricking or treating should always be fun!
