As the battle over the ancient dwarven hold delves ever deeper into the Hold, new chambers open yielding new rewards for those worthy enough to reach them.

HoE RewardsThe Halls of Ekrund is a survival-mode instance located in Ekrund – surviving each stage yields different rewards that unlock ever more powerful tools of war. Expanded with the Battle of the Frontiers, players may now descend into the depths of the Halls of Ekrund and face fiercer waves of enemies as the struggle to claim new prizes ensues.

The first new set of rewards is the Tinder Flint for the forces of Destruction, and the Black Powder Fuse for the forces of Order – two items which will allow players to light volatile kegs of black powder in the heat of battle.
