Guild Battles Arrives in Archlord 2
Archlord 2's latest content update introduces to the free to play PvP-focused MMORPG Guild Battles and a new area in which players can fight new monsters in a limited timeframe for rewards. Webzen has released a new trailer showing this new and long-awaited feature. Check it out below!
The new area, called El Dorado, is available several times a day through the week. It offers players 30 minutes to kill hundreds of monsters with no level restriction for the participants and no possible encounters with the opposite faction. In here, both players new and seasoned will be able to earn bountiful rewards.
However, the key feature of this update is Guild Battles, a weekly confrontation pitting guilds of the same faction against one another to vie for domination over specific territories.
Each week, guilds can enter one of the five guild battle areas for their faction, trying to wrestle ownership of that area away from its current owner. Although only one guild will be defending a given territory, members of multiple guilds can participate as attackers. The goal is to seize a strategically important stronghold by capturing a relic, located within the stronghold and protected by thick walls.
Only a guild master can capture the relic. Should they succeed, their guild will then become the new defending guild of the territory and a new phase of battle is initiated. The roles of the teams will change again if another guild is successful in capturing the relic. The winner of the battle will be the guild controlling the relic at the end of the battle. For a week, until the next round of guild battles starts, guild members will be able to use special skills and have access to discounts at NPC vendors and craftsmen within the borders of their new territory which may prove invaluable in their future battles.
