Welcome to Conquest – choose your side and square off in a no-holds-barred, interdimensional battle royal on Thursday, 5/17 @ 4:00PM PDT (11:00PM GMT). This is the first massive test of this brand new feature!
Conquest at a Glance
- Engage in massive, cross-shard battles capturing the excitement of Open World PvP at its best!
- Align with one of three new factions, the biggest difference is their philosophy. (You will be able to change factions.)
- Earn rewards and bonuses for your team – or supercharge yourself with bonuses that can be used outside of Conquest!
- Everyone can contribute – crafters play a vital role in every Conquest battle.
- This is a brand new feature, details and specifics will likely change based on your feedback and play tests. For the latest info keep an eye on the PTS Forums!
