The Night’s Watch has long held what lurks north of the Wall at bay. In Defend the Wall events, you too can capture and hold the forts along the wall to earn impressive rewards for you and your Allegiance!
Holding the Wall
For the duration of this event, 4 new Seats of Power associated with the Night’s Watch will open along The Wall:
- Eastwatch-by-the-Sea (2 Stars)
- The Shadow Tower (2 Stars)
- The Nightfort (3 Stars)
- Castle Black (4 Stars)
Each of these Seats of Power will grant Regional Bonuses, Ownership Bonuses, and have 5 titles available to grant to Allegiance members. All Seats of Power except for Castle Black will grant Bonuses for attacking one or more of the other Night's Watch Seats of Power. Please note that star specific buffs from other Seats of Power below the wall will not apply to these 4 event seats.
Choose which seat your Allegiance attacks first carefully, as it may provide you Bonuses helpful in conquering the next Seat you have your eye on!
Remember that normal rules still apply when abdicating or granting titles, including the 72 hour wait period before a Seat gets an Allegiance Shield (this timer is per seat, not per allegiance) and there is a 30-minute cooldown on granting or receiving titles.
As a benefit for holding Eastwatch-by-the-Sea, The Shadow Tower, The Nightfort, or Castle Black, you will earn rewards over time called Shipments. You can also collect these if an allegiance member grants you a title from one of these 4 seats.
Your first shipment can be claimed immediately after you conquer a Seat or receive your title. That first shipment will be smaller than subsequent shipments. You can check Shipment contents when looking at the seat’s info page (tap the Seat of Power, or find it on the War Room Map list.)
When you have a Shipment available, an icon will appear above your city’s Great Hall. You can claim it by tapping the icon, or by going through the new Shipment menu on the right-hand side of your screen. From here you can also collect Port and Storehouse rewards.
Shipments will be available every 15 minutes after the first claim as long as you hold your seat or title, so be vigilant! If you lose your Seat or Title, shipments will cease, and any available shipments that were not claimed will be lost.
This event introduces Instant Boosts. These are boosts that will apply as soon as you claim, purchase, or create them (as opposed to going into your inventory or needing to be manually activated.)
There are currently 4 ways to obtain Instant Boosts:
- Inventory Recipes
- Purchased from the Store
- Progressive Event Rewards
- Gifted in a Kingdom Message
Instant Boosts will only stack if they come from different sources. This means you can craft a 1 hour 10% vs Dead boost from an inventory recipe, purchase one from a pack, earn another from Progressive rewards, and then claim one from your messages to have a total of 40% vs Dead boost.
If you instead tried to claim two 1 hour 10% vs Dead boosts from the same source, such as an inventory Recipe, it will overwrite the original boost so you still have 10% in total. This will also overwrite the timer to match the latest boost’s duration, even if it is shorter than the original.
The Army of the Dead
During this event arc, you will have the opportunity to venture north of the wall and hunt down wights.
Wights, White Walkers, Wight Bears, and Wight Giants will all spawn during the specified PvE Events. Most will only spawn north of the wall, and you can teleport your entire keep above the wall to make hunting easier. Be on the lookout though, a few enemies may have already made their way south!
And now my watch has ended…
At the end of the Defend the Wall event, all 4 of the Night’s Watch seats will lock again.
Anyone still holding those seats when the event ends will be removed and any bannermen will lose their associated titles from that seat. Any time you lose a Seat of Power, you will receive a report in your Message Center to explain the cause, in this case, because the event has ended. Any available Shipments that were not claimed before the event ends will be lost.
