As we still need some more time with the implementation of the planned relic changes, we will give you something else to do during this weekend.
Starting tomorrow, on Friday the 27th of November, we will open the doors to the Proving Grounds once more to release your inner beast. Until Monday morning, Nov 30th (EU time), you can enjoy the fun in leveling your toon just by killing your fellow friends and enemies.
The rules are basically the same as the last event, we may do a quick test later tonight or tomorrow before the event will start. The exact time when the event will start, will be announced via Discord, Forum and ingame.
Shortly after the event has ended on Monday, the planned relic changes will go live. This will be most likely on Tuesday if everything works out as expected. For those who couldnt join the last event, here is a quick overview about the rules & settings:
Everyone will start at Level 1. If you want to join the event, you need to have a lvl 1 toon without any xp, rp and items. Only your starter weapon and your bind stone is allowed. Characters that were played during the test and logged there, will get ported out before the event goes live.
It is a PvP event. Everyone outside your group is your enemy. The realm timer is not active in this zone.
During the event, dont leave the zone. If you do, you will not be able to get back to the event with that character. In this case, you need to create a new toon, if you want to join the event again. It is intended that you cant use crafting there and you can only get equipment by killing other players. There are no mobs to xp, you only level up by player kills.
Use the Event Teleporter to port into the fight zone. When a member of your group is already somewhere in the fight zone, you will get ported to him.
/autogroup: Via this command you can toggle on/off if you want to be auto grouped or not. It is set to on by default. When it is enabled, you will be grouped with players within your level range. The command doesnt care about classes, it just fills up. If you want to build a premade group, you have to disable the command and then invite your friends in the safe zone. The groupcap is 5.
/event pet: Minstrels, Mentalists and Sorcs can summon a charmable pet inside the safe zone via this command.
The different level ranges:
Each time you level up and hit a new instance level range, you will get automatically kicked from your grp and ported into the new instance.
See you on the battlefield!
