Alganon 2010 Halloween Pumpkin Smash
Starting Wednesday October 27, pumpkins will be placed around both cities and are open for everyone to smash to prep for the big event! With every pumpkin smashed you’ll have a chance to win the following:
- Repair Tokens and Dyes
- Halloween Masks and Candies
- The Horseless Head (Ghost Pet)
- Bones the Skeleton (Pet)
Big Ticket Event
During Halloween weekend we’ll have the Big Ticket event! Starting on Saturday the Doomgourd Pumpkins will also have a chance to contain special colored tickets. Those tickets are redeemable for TRIBUTE!
- Copper Ticket = 1,000 Tribute
- Silver Ticket = 2,500 Tribute
- Golden Ticket = 5,000 Tribute
Tickets can be redeemed by trading them to a GM starting November 1st. Participation in the Big Ticket event will require the purchase of a Halloween event token for 50 Tribute in the Tribute Market. This token will be tied to the character that claims it and will need to remain in your character's inventory to participate in the event. Players without this token will still be able to attack the Doomgourd Pumpkins but will have no chance of finding a ticket, so keep an inventory slot open!
You’ve been asking for it, and now PvP is on its way into the world of Alganon! We’ll be rolling out 3 phases of PvP.
Phase I : Dueling and Open World PvP
Dueling allows two players, from the same or different factions the ability to fight each other without outside interference to either practice their PvP skills, or for bragging rights. Dueling is never fatal; the player who would normally be killed as a result of the duel has their hit points set to 1 instead, and submits to the other player. Both players receive a message that the duel is over and that one of the players is the victor then it is recorded into the history books of Alganon.
Open World PvP
Open World PvP is fairly simple, Battle to the Death. A player "flags" themselves for PvP and then can be attacked by similarly-flagged members of the opposing faction.
Phase II : Towers and Keep
In each of the major continents of Alganon (3 Asharr and 3 Kujix) there will be a fortified Keep which initially will belong to the faction on whose continent the keep is located. Additionally each of these zones will contain three Towers, located in strategic areas around the zone. The three towers in each zone will also initially belong to the faction on whose continent each resides. The opposing faction will try to seize and control your Keeps. In order to take a Keep the enemy must first capture and hold all three towers in the zone. Once the enemy controls those towers, they can attack and try to capture your keep. By capturing the keep they will unlock the next zone in the chain, and will be able to attack the towers in that zone. The zones must be captured contiguously, and once an enemy captures a zone on your continent, you must recapture it before you can press the attack on his continent. Eventually one faction will capture the final Keep in their enemy's chain of command, and doing so will spawn the King of the opposing faction, located in either Xanjuix Karr or Asheran. The enemy then may enter the opposing side's city, and attack and try to kill the King. Successfully accomplishing this goal will result in a great reward for all the attacking faction's players in the immediate vicinity of the king.
Phase III : Battlegrounds
Fields and Farms will be the first Battleground we develop and release. It will be tied into the Towers and Keeps World PvP system. This will be a control point and resource collection map that takes place somewhere in the world of Alganon, and provides a benefit to the team that wins each match.
