Battle for the Vampire Throne
Battle for the Darkovian Vampire Throne
The time has come to choose a successor for Queen Safiria, ruler of Darkovia's vampires.* After this summer's war, a different type of chaos reigns among the vampires of Lore, and the lycans of Darkovia are starting to probe for weaknesses.
Of the surviving Vampire Elders, several have come forth to claim the throne… as well as a half-breed new-comer who has no right, but strength, speed, skill, and POWER! This Friday, fight for the Vampire YOU want to take the Vampire Throne; your support will make the difference between ruling… and being banished back to the shadows of obscurity.
* It is best when rulers can choose a successor before they must leave the throne. For those of you who have not finished the Chaos Saga finale, spoilers will be kept to a minimum.
Vote with your blades
You have 4 contenders to choose from:
- Baron Luca, Head of the Nyx Aeterna Clan
- Rapaxi, Elder of the Umbral Legion
- Kurok Gravefang, Leader of the Abyssal Horde
- Lady Solani, First Fang of the Cor Mortis** and her General, Ensis
One of these four has... plans... for Edvard and Esmee. Regrettably, I am not sure they'll last out the week in Darkovia.
This week's release will not be a regular war, where you see a war meter increase as you defeat opponents. Instead, you will:
- Journey to the Vampire War battlegrounds and speak with the four contenders for the throne.
- Choose who you wish to ally with, then head into battle against their biggest threat.
- Defeat their enemies to "vote" for your choice***
- Next Thursday, October 21st, we will tally up the first round of votes, then...
- You will be able to choose which of the two remaining contenders you want to battle for.
- On Friday, October 24th, we will announce the NEW ruler of Darkovia, as chosen by Lore's heroes in a final BLOODBATH!!!
** A relative of the much-loved Queen Safiria
*** The "Vote" items will be 0 AC and stack up to 10,000.
I am still deciphering the history scrolls the Vampire Elders brought with them, so more of each clan's story will arrive soon!
Dage's Death Rider Limited Time Rares Shop
Speed, skulls, and wicked wheels - these were the inspiration for Dage's Death Rider armor set! Cruise through Lore battling from the back of a bike... then pull into Yulgar's to chat with the rest of your gang. Find his shop in the Game Menu this Friday, available until October 24th!
Dage has created a HUGE number of helms... some of which will be Legion exclusives! The Death Stalker (not the bike version) will also be available for Legion Tokens as well as other currencies.

If you did not finish the Chaos Saga finale before this weekend, you will need to start the event over. That will ensure you do not experience any progression issues through the storyline.
