Challange the Immortal

Challenge the Immortal is the new PvP mode being added to the Cycle of Strife, the eternal war between the Immortals and the Shadows. After the Shadows win the Rite of Exile against the Immortal faction, they’ll face the top Immortals player in a 30 (Shadows) vs. 1 (Immortal) battle. The immortal player will get a host of powers, becoming a challenging raid boss that Shadow players have to take down together.

Battleground Ladders

The 8v8 battleground PvP system is getting a ladder system, where players will need to face off against each other and compete for the top spot. Various new class balances and other impactful elements are being added to the battleground as well.

Set Items and Set Bonuses

The set item is a new end-game gear system being added to the game. The secondary set item consists of six pieces including hands, feet, neck, waist, and two rings. These confer unique bonuses if either three or six pieces are worn together, allowing for a combination of set bonuses and even more customization options to fit any playstyle.

The Helliquary

Up to 8 players will be able to challenge the Helliquary raid boss.
