Are house battles like huge landscape fights?

I was wondering if these house battles to take over the shards or something would be like hgue massive all out wars or little arena fights.

    I believe the shard conquest are going to be something like a step by step epic battle kind of thing. If I understood it right from reading several articles it will go something like this:

    - First enough members of a house have to accomplish enough Ancestral Quests to unlock a new shard.
    - As it is possible for more than one house to gain access to a shard, you will have to hurry to go and conquest the new shard.
    - First you will have to fight the native inhabitants (hmm this sounds very colonial and imperialistic ;) , but we'll just assume that they are evil, hehe ). This will be the PvE part of the conquest.
    - Then, if there is more than one house battling the new shard, you will have to defend the shard against the conquerors from other houses. It will be kind of a battle for the topm the lower parts of the shard being lower level quests and the higher parts obviuosly higher level quests.

    I don't know how big the actual terrain will be, but I am guessing it is going to be different from shard to shard.

    So it wouldn't be possible to just discover a shard while flying with your mount around the deadspell?

    Hmmm, I always thaught you could conquer a shard by just finding it somewhere hidden. Oh well, those ancestral quests will be fun too.

    A new shard is discovered and unlocked after from what I know; enough people from one of the 5 houses have done a specific instanced quest of the oracle. Yeah, it should be so awesome and so much to do in this game :)


    By the way, I don't think Shard Ships will be manually controlled, I think its automatically controlled, but what I hope to look forward to is events happening on the ride there....like being attacked by some kind of creatures who spend their time in the deadspell storm. Thats what is expected I think....correct me if I am wrong please. But I am quite sure Shardships won't be manually controlled. Flying mounts will be though!

    Have to put something up!

    Yes, Low-Level characters must fight the pirates :=) High-lvl characters must do something else, but i forgot what. (This is because you NEVER get exp from monsters
