- All participating guilds must have at least 20 members or more.
- In order to actually be able to interact with the Castle’s devices or to even win the event, a guild must be a part of an alliance.
- Anyone in the Valley of Loren can “participate” or interact with players, but these members or guilds can’t actually win the event themselves.
- If the guild that holds the castle disbands at anytime, they will forfeit the castle.
- There can only be three attacking guilds during the event.
How to register for a siege
Qualified guilds must talk to the Guardsman NPC and press the "Announce" button and their registration will be accepted.
Only the guild master of the main alliance can announce “intent to siege” to the guardsman NPC.
All members of a guild that has announced their intent to siege can collect and submit Signs of Lord during the registration period.
When the guardsman NPC is clicked, the guild name and allied guilds names rankings will show on the registry.
When the guard NPC is clicked Siege status information will be shown.
Guilds are ranked according to several factors, including how many Signs of Lord have been obtained.
Only the top 3 guilds and their allies will be given a priority for the siege.
