    The Ice Floes must be shot with harpoons. Items such as Burning Ice ammunition, Agwen Armor plates, Black powder, Windstorm, Agwe Amulet, Skyfire, Hour Glass and Mojo can be obtained from Ice Floes for the player who does the last shot.

    In the Event Treasure Chests you find many useful items, Snow ammunition, Legba Amulets, Tritons Benevolence, Unstoppable, Dragonfire, Crystal and some other action items.

    Ammo

    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”.


    Vikings 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” for a certain time which applies a de-buff to “Aegir's Wrath” when he is in the zone.

    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.

    When a player is sunk on the group map, you can´t rejoin the group map and will NOT get any rewards (also no ranking time).

    The event compensation will run tomorrow at 12 noon UTC (1 pm CET).

    Due to the very cheap price for the event keys, we´ve decided to changed the ratio, the event keys will be exchanged 1 - 0,5, means for 2 event keys, players will get 1 normal key.

    The compensation will run tomorrow, not today.

    The keys will be changed for the ratio to 1:1 from event keys to normal treasure chest keys
