    Ammunition

    Snow ammunition causes more damage against “Grumpy Boar”.

    Ice ammunition causes more damage against “Elegant Elk”.

    Burning Ice ammunition causes more damage against “Black Ram”, “Midgard Wyrm” and on the group map: “Viking's Honor”.

    “Viking's Honor” Group Map

    Once you have collected enough ancient emblems you are able to access the “Viking's Honor” from the Safe Haven by speaking to Haldor Olafsson.

    After you choose the role you want to play (“Damage Dealer”, “Healer” and Tank”) and the team is full you are teleported to the “Viking's Honor” map where you face the boss “Aegir's Wrath”.

    Your goal is to kill “Aegir's Wrath”.

    “Aegir's Wrath” spawns 8 towers “Ran's Will” (max. 2 at the same time) which spawn “Kolgas”.


    “Ran's Wills” de-spawn after they have spawned a certain amount of “Kolgas”.

    There is a damage zone around “Aegir's Wrath” which grows over the time.

    The damage zone reduces when one “Ran's Will” de-spawns.

    When a “Ran's Will” is destroyed the damage zone is reset and another zone is in the place of the destroyed “Ran's Will” which applies a de-buff to “Aegir's Wrath” when he is in the zone.

    This zone de-spawns as soon as another “Ran's Will” de-spawns or is destroyed.

    When all “Ran's Will” are de-spawned or destroyed there is no other ability to reduce the damage zone.

    When Aegir's Wrath is dead, the map is finished and you are teleported back to normal map again.
