PVP Saga Server Starts Sept 27

A Pvp saga (temp) server will start on Sept 27th and if like last time will last 3 months. Afterwards that character will probably be transferred to Fury. Here are some posts outlining how it will go:

AndyB - Community Manager
Saga of Blood will follow a similar route that Saga of Zath did; you’ll create a new character on a separate server and advance your character following a server-specific “Saga Quest” which gives special server-exclusive rewards for completing tasks. The big difference from Saga of Zath is that Saga of Blood will follow a PvP ruleset, with rewards and features revolving around PvP.

A full post is coming soon, but in the meantime, you can look forward to things such as tiered level caps (so, for example, when the Saga launches there will be a temporary level cap of 18, meaning Tortage will be a madhouse for a while, no RF/WB, leaderboards to track various stats, and we’re planning to hold a dueling tournament at the conclusion of the Saga based on leaderboards. 

Mussagana - Lead Designer (AoC)
Acheronian Ruins, White Sands, and Tortage Underhalls will all be pvp enabled. You could definitely do night quests to get to 18, but in order to advance the saga quest you will eventually need to kill other players. It’s also advisable to do this because XP gain from other players will be vastly increased.

Mussagana - Lead Designer (AoC)
The cap will start at 18, then go to 30, and then increase by 10 all on a weekly basis. This means that minis will be inclusive of all level ranges on some weeks, and on some weeks the top level will be in its own tier. I’m interested in watching the activity levels and feedback generated by that.

Combined with the vastly increased XP gain, this will funnel all players toward the top of the current tier very quickly. And it should create some interesting competitive gameplay the likes of which the game hasn’t seen in the past.

    Hopefully this brings some old PVPers back

    But will they stay?  That's the big question.   It worked pretty good with the PvE version as Crom did get a pop boost at the end that seems to have continued.

    If nothing else Tortage should be a blast that fist week with everyone having to stay.
