Posted by Community | 2024 May 21 09:20 -0400 GMT
Adventurers, dire times have fallen upon the realms. The once mighty strongholds now lie in ruins, the walls reduced to rubble and all defenders scattered. This loss has emboldened enemies who now swarm the areas, seeking to claim the strategic keeps for themselves. Venture into the perilous battlefield surrounding the shattered keep and strike down your foes. With each enemy you defeat, claim their slain head as proof of your valor and prowess in combat.

Adventurers should speak with the following NPC's to receive the new quest Head Hunting:

  • Albion: Lady Idris in Catterick Hamlet
