Bicheon Castle Siege
Bicheon Castle Siege is a monthly competitive contest which determines the owners of the Bicheon Castle. Clans can bid clan funds for taking part in the challenge during the bidding phase and eventually try to capture or to defend the castle. Up to 300 people can participate in this large-scale PvP fight.
The main siege is held once every four weeks on Sunday from 10PM to 11PM server time. The first siege ran on November 28th but the event itself starts a week earlier already.
Siege Eve[edit | edit source]
The Siege Eve event is held in the week before the Siege War. Victory Drums will drop and players can cheer for the defending of attacking clan. Per cheer, players will receive either a Defense Kingdom Coffer or Offense Kingdom Coffer.
The clan with the highest cheer count will receive the Battlefield Drum buff during the Siege War.
Siege Tender[edit | edit source]
Siege Tender is the bidding phase of the event running from Thursday to Friday before the Siege War. All clans who unlocked Defense Formation to at least level one can participate. Bids are placed by using clan funds.
If no clan occupies the Castle (which is common for the first Bicheon Castle Siege), then the clan with the highest bid will be the defender of the Castle and the second highest bidding clan will be the attacker. For subsequent sieges, the defender is always the clan who occupied the Castle before. The highest bidding clan will always be in the offense.
Siege War[edit | edit source]
The actual war runs for a full hour. Similar to Hidden Valley Capture, the attacking clan must destroy the monolith - this time inside the Bicheon Castle. In contrary to the valley capture, it is enough to destroy the monolith once to capture the castle.
There are various approaches for both sides in the war.
Offense[edit | edit source]
The attacking clan can summon up to four Siege Towers in exchange for clan funds by talking to an NPC next to the start. Also, there are opportunities to lower gate defenses of the castle by destroying the gate controls on both sides, left and right.
Defense[edit | edit source]
The defense sight can also summon siege weapons, such as Catapults that will attack enemies by throwing flaming rocks.
Both sides[edit | edit source]
A neutral resurrection flag is available inside the castle that can be captured by either side to get reinforcements in quicker. The flag can be captured by standing next to it for 15 seconds. Be aware that it does not matter how many members stands next to it, and that enemies in range will halt the progress.
After the war[edit | edit source]
First of all, the victorious clan will receive market taxes and mining taxes from the three Hidden Valleys as long as it occupies the castle.
Government[edit | edit source]
In addition, the clan leader will be crowned as King. They can a appoint players as government official, each with different authorities and buffs:
Titles[edit | edit source]
The King and the Marshall can now grant up to 12 titles to different characters on the server, each with a unique buff or debuff. These are:
- Hall of Glory (buffs)
- The Defeated (debuffs)
However, a character can't have a title and a government position.
