Tomorrow we will activate the Ellan Vanin keep as a new objective for battlegroups and zergs. Since the first announcement on Friday we did some minor changes:
The keep will have six guards and one lord plus two lvl 10 doors. If one realm kills the lord, this realm will have the ownership of that keep, like any other regular keep. While owning the keep, your realm will have an extra 15% bonus to keep raid rps.
Every 3 hours a timer resets. The realm that owned the keep when the timer expired will have an extra 15% bonus to keep raid rps until the next reset.
3 hour timer starts: Keep is neutral. Hibernia raids the keep. Hibernia gets 15% bonus to keepraid rps for owning the keep. Midgard takes the keep from Hibernia, Midgard now has 15% bonus to keepraid rps.
3 hour timer ends: Midgard owns the keep at the end of the timer. Midgard now gets an additional 15% keepraid bonus for the next 3 hours, no matter which realm owns the keep during that 3 hours.
3 hour timer starts again: Midgard still owns the keep. Midgard now has 15% bonus to keepraid rps for owning the keep and 15% bonus for owning the keep at the end of the timer. Albion takes the keep from Midgard. Midgard still has the 3h bonus from the end of the timer and Albion now has 15% bonus for owning the keep.
3 hour timer ends: Midgard will lose their 3h bonus from the first reset. Albion now has a 3h bonus for owning the keep at the end of timer.
Three hour timer begins again and so on and so on.
We will start with a timer of 3 hours. Depending on your feedback and experiences, we may change that.
