Arms Race – Guide

v1.7.0a consists of the Arms Race Live Event. The Live Event has 10 tasks for each realm, with a title unlocked after completing all 10 tasks. Like prior Live Events, this Live Event also ushers in new content, early access to this new content is determined by the winning realm in a ‘realm-pool competition’. Players individually contribute to a realm-pool via collecting resources in the ORvR lakes, but the victor is determined by the success of the whole realm. However, unlike prior Live Events, the Arms Race has two competitive pools to build towards – the Metal Slag Stockpile, and the Weapons Stockpile. The winning realm of the Metal Slag Stockpile will have 5 days early access to the new content, while the winning realm of the Weapons Stockpile will receive a small week long boon. While the struggle of the Arms Race takes place across forges all over both the Old World and Ulthuan, the true battles that will decide the victor of the greater war of the Arms Race take place in the land of the dwarves. Who will prove victorious in the Arms Race?

Destruction

  • Contribute at least 100 Metal Slag to the city smelter. Players may collect metal slag off of slain enemies and bring it to the smelter located in the Khorne War Quarters of the Inevitable City so that it may be melted down to fuel the war effort.
  • Survive the first two stages of the Halls of Ekrund instance. Located in the Dragonback Mountains is the mighty dwarven Hold of Ekrund where a vicious battle is taking place between the dwarves and greenskins. Join in the battle and survive the first two waves of dwarven defenders.

Every ounce of precious metal the forces of Destruction harvest prevents the dwarves from getting them.

Obtain the quest from Gazbag in the Inevitable City where you will learn of the recent upsurge in mining activities being carried out by the hated stunties.

Once the railroad has been sabotaged travel to the Marshes of Madness and seek out the dwarven ale runners who carry the stuntie grog to their miners and kill them. Without the ale the miners will collapse of exhaustion and be unable to harvest Oathstone. Once this has been done journey to the Badlands and intercept a dwarven convoy heading east from Mount Gunbad to Karaz-a-Karak. The final blow to the dwarven mining efforts will be in Thunder Mountain where you will seek a lost dwarven hold and pillage all the gromril located within it and destroy its entrance so the dwarves will never find it. Do this for the mighty WAAAAAGH!
