The Night’s Watch forts that run along The Wall usually remain silent. However, during special events, you may look to the north and find these Seats of Power have unlocked!
Holding the Wall
For these events, the four 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 several titles available to grant to Allegiance members.
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! Please note that star specific buffs from other Seats of Power below the wall may not apply to these 4 event seats, specifically 'Attacker vs # Star' titles. Titles and buffs can vary per event, so make sure to check the event messaging to see what buffs apply!
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 continue to arrive 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.
The content of an event Shipment can vary from purely points to things like building resources depending on the event.
Holding a Seat of Power along the wall is an Allegiance focused event, so some Wall events may be Allegiance Leaderboard-only, and will not contain a personal leaderboard or progressive event.
The top rewards for this variant can include Allegiance Leader Gifts, Also called Liege Rewards or Liege Gifts, which the leader can then send to Allegiance Members. The Allegiance Leaderboard Reward notice sent to your Message Center after the event concludes will have a breakdown of the top contributors from your Allegiance, and a button to send gifts based on participation.
Alongside Wall events, you may also find additional events that will provide rewards or boosts that can help you take Night's Watch forts. For example, even if you are not holding a fort, there may be PvE creatures like Wights, White Walkers, Wight Bears, Wight Giants, and Pale Spiders for you to hunt down and still help your Allegiance or earn instant boosts.
These events depend on the theme, and not all Wall events will include them, so make sure to check the events panel!
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.
