  • Introducing Grail Wars

    Here ye, here ye! Grail Wars is here!

    Grail Wars will be making its grand appearance in version 18.0.
    See below for the full detailed guide on how Grail Wars works and visit the video tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJvW0Jhw27A

    Entering a Grail Wars Battle (Will not be available if you have not joined an Alliance)

    All players within the Alliance can participate in Grail Wars.
    To enter the Grail Wars battle menu, select either of the Outposts next to the Castle.


    Battle Schedule

    Grail Wars are held on a calendar weekly basis and consist of three phases:
    • Preparation period
    • Deployment entry period
    • Battlefield combat and reward period


    Rules for the Grail Wars Battle

    Preparation:

    1) The preparation period begins first. During this time, recruit Alliance members, increase your Alliance level and skills, and train troops to prepare for battle.

    2) The Deployment period follows preparation. All Alliance members who have met the might requirements are allowed to select their knights, heroes and troops that they want to deploy to the Battlefield at this time. Each member can deploy a maximum of 10 marches per City and assign one Outpost Marshal to improve the Attack and Life when defending your Outpost.
    The Alliance Power score influences the total pool of points an Alliance can compete for, so bringing more troops - thereby raising your alliance power - will give you an advantage. Individual Power Scores are based on your troops, Knights, Heroes and Gear that are deployed into battle.
    • During the preparation and deployment periods, the Alliance Shop will be available for purchasing items that will help your performance during battle. The Alliance Shop will be closed once the Grail Wars have begun. More info on the shop items in the Alliance Shop section of the guide.
    • Joining and leaving Alliances as well as the removal of members will be prohibited once deployment starts and until the end of the reward period.
    3) Grail Wars combat begins shortly after the end of the deployment phase, and rewards will be distributed once the battle has ended.
    • During Grail Wars, Alliance members with an Individual Power score of 1000 who have sent troops to battle will have their home cities protected from attacks. Protection can be removed by attacking other players or locations on the World Map.


    Grail Wars Battle

    1) Once the deployment phase ends Alliances will be matched up according to their Glory score. Initially based on alliance might, this will change depending on an alliance's performance in Grail Wars. The Alliances will then cross the portal to the Alliance War map and face off against a rival Alliance!

    2) Points are scored by killing enemy troops from other alliances or PVE tiles, as well as conquering and holding special tiles called Wonders.
    • There are numerous Wonders spread across the map as well as one Great Wonder - capturing this might prove more advantageous...
    • Head to the War Room to view more details on individual and Alliance members owned tiles and Rally Marches.

    3) At the end of the Battle, the Alliance with the highest score wins the Grail War! All participants will obtain rewards and the Alliance will earn Glory points that are used for ranking on the Grail Wars Leaderboard.










    Grail Wars Items & Rewards

    Alliance Shop

    The Alliance Shop located within the Outpost sells speedups, portals, and performance boosts that can only be used within Grail Wars. Several items are unlocked when the Alliance reaches a certain level requirement.

    • The Alliance Shop is not available when troops have begun their marches to the Battlefield and Grail Wars has begun.


    Merits

    1) Individual Merits (IM) and Alliance Merits (AM) are earned by scoring points in Grail Wars, donating resources, endowing Crosses or purchasing Gems. Purchasing Gems will reward you and all Alliance members with Individual Merits (IM).
    • Enter the Alliance Menu in order to endow crosses and donate resources to your Alliance.
    • Individual Merits (IM) are used for purchasing Grail Wars Skills and Alliance Shop items that will help increase your performance on the Battlefield. (Cannot be purchased during combat.)
    2) Chancellors and Vice Chancellors can use Alliance Merits (AM) to level the Alliance and activate Alliance Buffs.


    Grail Wars Pre-release

    For the inaugural Grail Wars, some things will be different depending on your realm, such as the length of the battle time. This is because we are still calibrating the Grail Wars feature to ensure maximum performance and enjoyment for all players. Grail Wars will be improved along the way as we monitor the feature and gather player feedback on this new content.
    When this preseason is complete, the Grail War settings will be the same on all realms.


    Grail War Ranking

    1) The first leaderboard will be based on total Alliance Might. Alliances who join Grail Wars after the first battles will appear at the bottom.

    2) After the preseason, Merit points progress will be kept, but the Glory leaderboard points will be reset. This is to ensure a fair start for all when the feature finishes calibration.


    If you would like to discuss this feature, please post in the Grail Wars Discussion and Feedback Thread.
