Dawn of Destruction Guide

1.7.4a consists of the Dawn of Destruction live event. This live event has 11 tasks for players to complete while participating in the Dawn of Destruction. Empire forces have begun to apprehend strange warriors of Chaos, creatures of deadly strength and unseen power. With the incursion of the Night Goblins from Karak Ungor to the east and the recent south-eastern thrust of the Raven Host, Karl Franz is anticipating a full-scale attack on the weakened frontier provinces of the Empire, but without further information he is unsure how to deploy his troops. One thing is for certain, a new host will be necessary to counter the powerful warriors of Chaos that have emerged. Can the forces of Order track the movements of the Raven Host and prepare for their assault, or will the forces of Destruction succeed in weaving a web of disinformation and stall the Order of the Griffon’s mobilization?

  • Complete the ‘Weathering the Storm’ quest. Scouts have reported new Chaos warriors lurking in the north, powerful men capable of taking on entire squads of Empire units. While this is troubling indeed, the main concern is the mobilization of the Raven Host’s new warbands to the East. Journey to Altdorf and speak with Karl Franz to see how you can aid in the tracking of the Raven Host’s movements. / An Empire warship has recently raided a Norscan convoy; it may bear valuable information. Journey to Nordland and search the Nordland XI for any clues about the raided vessel. / The captains log informs you that an envoy was sent north, perhaps this envoy contains the information you seek. Head to the lagoon in Norsca and obtain the information from the envoy. / The envoy has been slain by marauders! The savages only sought to kill it however and did not bother to dispose of any documents. The Raven Hosts marshals its forces and marches on Salzenmund! Ride with haste to warn the garrison of the imminent siege! / It seems the attack on Salzenmund was but a distraction for the time being, while the forces of the Empire poured their defenses into Salzenmund, a Chaos rift has opened up in Norsca where demon pour forth. Journey to Gotland and close the rift. / The attack will not come along the western shores, that much is certain. Travel south-east into Troll Country and attempt to contact one of the garrisons of the watch-towers that control the high-lands. / The tower is infested with minions of Nurgle! Purge the tower of the foul spawn and make your way to the roof to scout the lay of the land for yourself. / Alas! The town of Trovolek has fallen to the forces of the Raven Host, this travesty cannot be allowed to go unanswered. Assault the town and attempt to free if of the grasp of Tzeentch! / In retaliation for the assault on Trovolek, the Raven Host has laid siege to Bohsenfels! Go there quickly and defend the town against the onslaught! / One of Tzeentch’s new creatures has been captured by a company of bandits who offer to sell him to the forces of the Empire, for the right price. The price they shall attain is their lives. Fight your way into the bandits camp and find what creature they hide from the Empire. / In its dying words the foul spawn mocked you and hinted at an eastern pass in the mountains whose ‘blood would flow red’. This could only be High Pass, go there and make sure that Feiten’s Lock holds firm against the Chaos horde. It is one of the primary defenses of High Pass and should it fall, the forces of Chaos can flood the Kislevite steppes. / The garrison of Feiten’s Lock was missing… an ill omen. Worse yet, the forces of the Raven Host have already set up a camp in Jaggedspine Ridge. Go there and detonate a black-powder keg to slow the Raven Host’s advance south. / The forces of the Empire must be alerted of the imminent invasion which is coming east of Talabecland. Make your way to the roof of Unterbaum Castle and inform the lord of the castle to alert the defenders of Talabecland. / You have arrived too late! The forces of Chaos already have a firm grip on Talabecland. Unterbaum will not aide your call, you have little choice but to sound the alarm yourself. Make haste to the bell tower in the south-eastern reaches of Talabecland and make your way to the roof to sound the alarm! /The eastern provinces of the Empire must fend for themselves, there is little you can do for them now. However, you can confuse their advance by severing their communications with the Inevitable City. The forces of the Empire have reason to believe that a powerful magus is directing the invasion force. Journey to Reikland and rally the Knights of the Reiksguard at Castle Reiksguard to your cause. From there journey north to Ritterburg to employ the aid of a resident Bright Wizard for the drive into the Chaos Wastes. / With your forces gathered, you now must journey into the Chaos Wastes and rally with the  Order of the Griffon’s forces at the Camp of the Faithful. From there journey to the Lonely Tower in the western Chaos Wastes to seek the location of the magus. / Ah, Vyrien Darkweaver, a devote acolyte of Lycithas the Harridan Seer. She guides the Raven Host through the treacherous World’s Edge Mountains from her seat in the Maw. Go there and issue a challenge to bring her forth. Slay her with the aid of your realm and sever the eyes from the Raven Host marching towards the eastern provinces. Complete this task and return to Karl Franz for a piece of the stolen work of art. [P]
  • Complete the ‘Collection of Heads’ quest 5 times.
  • Find all the pieces of the stolen work of art “A Song of Clashing Blades”, which are scattered around the land. Their locations are denoted in this guide with [P].

  • Win 20 Streets of the Damned or Beacons of the Frontier scenarios with 500 points.
  • Complete the ‘Misinformation’ quest. The weak human’s have caught wind of the hosts of the Changer of Ways marching to the east. Their scouts scour the lands for a sighting of our mighty army, but to little avail for it marches through the World’s Edge Mountains beyond the reach of their eyes. However it would be foolish to throw caution to the wind. Journey to the Inevitable City and speak with Tchar’zank to see how you can aid in intercepting the Empire agents and misleading them. / An Empire warship has recently raided a Norscan convoy; it may bear valuable information, information which cannot fall into Empire hands. Journey to Nordland and search the Nordland XI for any clues about the raided vessel. / The captains log informs you that an envoy was sent north, perhaps this envoy contains the information you seek. Head to the lagoon in Norsca and obtain the information from the envoy. / The envoy has been slain already, but the fools did not bother to dispose of any documents! The forces of the Empire may already know of the Raven Hosts plan to attack Salzenmund! Even though this is a diversion, the assault cannot fail before it starts! Ride with haste to join the assault on Salzenmund. / The forces of the Empire have begun to rally around Salzenmund, alas the defenders were forewarned and many Chaos warriors lost their lives attacking the walls. Such its Tzeentch’s will. The Order of the Griffon prepares for an assault deeper north into Norsca, journey to the border of Nordland and lay waste to the forward camp./ The forces of the Empire already know the attack will not come along the western shores, captured scouts have been tortured and revealed as much. Travel south-east into Troll Country and slay one of the garrisons of the watch-towers that control the high-lands. See what they know and how much information has to be contained. / The tower is infested with minions of Nurgle! Claim the tower in the name of Tzeentch and make your way to the roof to scout the lay of the land for yourself. / Curses upon the winds, the forces of the Empire have scouted the forward position of the Raven Host in Trovolek, go there and aid in the defense of the town. / In retaliation for the assault on Trovolek, you must go south and lay siege to Bohsenfels! Go there quickly and slaughter the inhabitants of the town so that the Empire may know fear everywhere! / Captured citizens claim that a band of bandits holds one of Tzeentch’s warriors, attempting to sell him to the Empire. Fight your way into the bandits camp and free your Chaos brother. / The giant warrior was brutally tortured by his captors; appendages broken, burns marking his body, even his legs severed. He was still living when you found him but he had already told the humans of the Raven Hosts eastern disposition. Make your way to High Pass and scout the defenses of Feiten’s Lock to see if the forces of the Empire are anticipating an attack there. / The garrison of Feiten’s Lock was missing… Perhaps they know nothing?  This does not mean you should not add to the confusion of the defenders of the Empire. Go south into Talabecland and obtain some captured kegs of black-powder at Volgen; use them on the bridge to the east that the forces of the Empire have been using to transport troops north to High Pass. / While in Talabecland your timing marked you as a chosen of Tzeentch; you happened to hear bells tolling in alarm of invasion. The forces of the Empire were mustering in Talabecland! Somehow they had found out about the invasion this far east. Head back into High Pass and use the Tempest Horn to warn the Raven Host and rally them. / The invasion of the Empire from the east lays threatened, the forces of the Empire push north and threaten to sever the route at High Pass. Worse yet a hidden enclave of High Elves has emerged from the mountains and attacks the rear lines of the Raven Host. Journey north-east into the Luminous Veil and descend into the lair of the High Elves and coat the walls of their halls in their blood. / The forces of the Empire somehow knew of the eastern warbands of the Raven Host, another power must be at work here. Perhaps their wizards have a hand to play in this tale. If it is indeed a wizard of one of the colleges, you will need powerful allies to confront them. Journey to the Chaos Wastes and petition the Lords of Change in the Ebon Keep for their aid. From there travel south to the Reaping Field and call upon the minions of Khorne to answer the oath of the alliance between your gods. / With your forces gathered, you now must journey into Reikland at the heart of the Empire and rally with the  Raven Host’s forces at Vanik’s Horde. From there journey west to the Heinrich Estate and see what this loyal noble knows of the forces that divine magic in these lands. / Of course, the Bright Wizards of the College of Aqshy are at work here, peering through the flames to follow the movements of the massive Raven Host. Their leader Myrienne Emberheart operates from Reikwald. Go there and issue a challenge to bring her forth. Slay her with the aid of your realm and end her gaze over the Raven Host. Complete this task and return to Tchar’zanek for a piece of the stolen work of art. [P]
