[Captain's order]


Captains play a crucial role in the War of the Roses, strategizing with key battle elements like sanctum passives, Spirit's Altar occupation effects and faction skills, to help steer their allies towards victory.

 

First, captains can use the War of the Roses faction skills to strategically seize sanctums and the altar, to help tip the scales of battle in their allies' favor.

Additionally, strategically capturing sanctums to gain passive benefits can lead allies into a more advantageous battle.

* Sanctums must be occupied in order, starting from the closest one connected to the faction's castle, and sanctums that are not connected cannot be occupied even after defeating monsters.

Leading Guilds and The Third Legion

The ultimate goal of the War of the Roses is the same for everyone - to bring down the commander stationed in the opposing faction's castle.

 

However, while they fight for the same faction, the Leading Guild Members and The Third Legion have slightly different roles in achieving this victory.

 

The Third Legion

First off, the Third Legion, the faction's main force, carries out missions directed by the captain.

 

[Defeating Old Mirumok, the guardian of the Kamasylvia faction, to occupy the sanctum]

Sanctum Attack 

Capture a specific sanctum within 10 min. 

Sanctum Defense 

Defend a specific sanctum for 10 min. 

Defeat a Commander 

Defeat a Commander within 10 min. 

Protect a Commander 

Protect a Commander for 10 min. 

Defeat Enemies (x40) 

Eliminate 40 enemies within 10 min. 

Spirit's Altar Activation 

Activate the Spirit's Altar for your faction within 10 min. 

 
While on a mission, they can attack sanctums to gain beneficial buffs for their faction or defend strategically important sanctums under ally control.
Remember, the more sanctums your faction controls, the stronger your faction becomes, and the more missions you complete successfully, the greater the rewards.
 
Also, when not on a mission, you can freely engage in battle within the war area.
Your title changes in real-time based on enemy kills, so adventurers interested in honor, feel free to take up the challenge!

Leading Guilds

While the Leading Guild and the Third Legion share the same end goal, guild members don't take on missions from the captain.
 
However, they can speed up the progress of missions by assisting the Third Legion with their assigned missions, fill in gaps where the Third Legion's influence doesn't reach, and act as a crucial unit capable of halting the advance of the enemy's key forces.
 
Thus, this group's main focus is strategizing and coordinating with the captain to lead the battlefield towards victory.

 

 

War of the Roses Top Tips!

Where can I revive my mount when it dies?

 
The War of the Roses spans across the vast regions of Kamasylvia and O'dyllita, making swift transport a crucial strategic element. If your mount (horse) dies, you will begin to face many difficulties when travelling on foot.
Upon death, your mount can be recovered via the Stable Keeper or Wharf Manager, who can be found at Onnet Castle, Odore Castle, Old Wisdom Tree, and Starry Midnight Port.
Additionally, when your character resurrects after death, your mount resurrects with you, both with fully recovered health.
 

Ornette/Odore guards are detrimental to your strategy!

 
The guards of Ornette/Odore Castle are quite formidable, but do not respawn upon defeat, so taking them down while under the effects of the Spirit's Blessing activated by occupying the Spirit's Altar is the key to achieving victory in the War of the Roses.
 

What's the difference between Quick and Normal revival?

 
You can choose to resurrect in one of two ways: quick resurrection (30 secs) or normal resurrection (45 secs).
Quick resurrection allows you to resurrect quickly but with only 20% of your max HP, while normal resurrection allows you to resurrect slowly but with 100% of your max HP.
The differences in both time and HP restoration can make big differences, so be sure to choose the right method that fits your strategy
 

How to turn the tide of the war?

 
Sanctums must be captured in the order connected to each faction.
If you succeed in capturing sanctums close to the enemy's castle, the other sanctums that were connected via said sanctum will be freed.
 
[N1 Sanctum being captured, and Ornette Sanctums being freed]

 

 Cooperation between the Commander, Guild Master, and The Third Legion is vital for success during the War of the Roses.

 

From capturing sanctums passing through the Spirit's Altar, to killing the enemy faction's Commander, there's no room for complacency!

 

Now, let's head off to the battlefield!
