The Draft War of Emperium (commonly referred to as Draft WoE) is a weekly Guild vs Guild event organized in cooperation by the NovaRO Staff and the players. Draft WoE involves being selected by a Captain to join one of the teams, and then competing with other the other teams in a regular War of Emperium environment. All participants in the Draft WoE will receive Valor Badges and SiegeTokenInventoryPic.png Siege Tokens . In order to participate, you must join the Draft WoE Discord: https://discord.gg/z8gqddC

How it Works

Intro to Draft WoE

Unlike regular War of Emperium, Draft WoE does not have pre-made Guilds competing for the castle. Instead, the Guilds (called teams) will have members chosen from the pool of participating players by previously selected Captains, in what is called the Drafting phase. This will be done at the right side of @go 15, just past the bridge, and usually takes 30 to 45 minutes.

After the Drafting phase ends, the actual War of Emperium will begin, which will last for one hour. At the end of WoE, whichever team is holding the castle will be declared the winner, and receive additional Valor Badges .

Anyone is eligible to participate, as long as you follow the rules below. This makes Draft WoE an ideal opportunity to try out and learn about War of Emperium by playing alongside veterans and newbies in a semi-organized and low-cost environment.

The Drafting phase

Drafting Phase Rules

    • You will have to be on Discord starting from this point until the end of the event.
    • You will have to leave your guild and keep your gears open while you wait.
    • If a Captain requests that you open your gears and you do not do so or display joke gears, you may be banned from Draft WoE until further notice.

    • For each of the first 5 draft rounds, each captain will pick one person.
    • For each of the next 5 rounds, each captain will pick two people.
    • And after the 10th draft round, each captain will pick three people (depending on the amount of people).

Mechanics

The Kriemhild castle, an example of an FE castle

All regular War of Emperium Mechanics apply. However, there are a few changes to take note of, listed below:

  • Only players in one of the draft teams will be able to enter the castle.
  • Battlegrounds consumables will be enabled.
  • Participants will receive free +20 and +10 food buffs while inside the castle.
  • Mindbreaker guilds will not be allowed.
  • No member cap will be in place for the draft teams.
  • Currently, Draft WoE takes place in WoE FE castles.
    • This means that there are no Guardian Stones or Barricades, and the castle rooms are separated by portals.

Rewards

Draft WoE participants receive the rewards below.

In addition, the Captains will be rewarded with 400 Valor Badges and 5 WarlordInventoryPic.png Warlord's Treasure for their efforts.

Please note that, unlike in regular WoE, members of the winning guild do not receive Guild Dungeon Access and Captains cannot access the castle's treasure room.
