Patchnotes 21.13.01 – The Corsairs’ Stronghold

A general note for this patch:
With this update, a lot of the content which is available in Korea and/or other regions may already be in the game, but is currently turned off. It is possible that certain objects and building of future content may already be visible (e.g. Alliance buildings, summer event related objects) but cannot be interacted with. This content will be activated once all the translations and/or verifications have successfully been made, and more details on these will follow in future patch notes.
Corsairs’ Stronghold – 20 vs 20 battleground addition
  • With this update, the 20 vs 20 battleground featuring siege weapons will be introduced.
    • We’ve composed a guide explaining the different icons and workings of this battleground, which you can consult here.
  • Players can queue for this battleground starting with characters at level 30.
    • Players will be level 60 when entering the battleground and all the armour is equalized in the Corsairs’ Stronghold, meaning the stats are the same.
    • Players will keep their skills and glyphs they have bought up to that point, but will not get additional ones when entering the battleground.
    • Players between level 30 and 59 will gain EXP points for each match they partake in. The amount of points depends on the personal performance as well as the outcome of the match.
  • Four new quests have been introduced, for level 30, 40 and 50 players, as well as a daily quest for level 60 players.
  • Matches reward players with Bellicarium credits, gold and experience points. Winning or losing a match also affects the character’s personal rating, which is being used to match players of the same strength.
    • After three won games, players get an additional “Victor’s Spoils”
    • After three lost games, players get an additional “Challenger’s Aide”
  • Achievements have been introduced for the Corsairs’ Stronghold.
    • Players that have won 150 matches will get the “Black Pearl” mount.
