Daemon Moon Rising

Live Events have always been one of the great features of Warhammer Online. Yesterday they spilled the beans on the next one which is called Daemon Moon Rising. Is that the moon that just hangs out in the background? Is it too early for a computer joke?

Check out the details and a video after the jump. I am experimenting with using page jumps, so if you love them or hate them, let me know.

Mythic really seems to have gone all out for this event, which is saying something since the Hunters Vale live event was excellent.  The event takes place from October 23rd to November 2nd. It seems to be replacing the Witching Night event, which was also one of my favorites.

Masks are back, but this time each one will grant the wearer a special power.  No hint about what kinds of powers, but they said it should be useful in combat.  In addition to new masks, players can get a new Event slot item. 

What would an live event be without some RvR?  Daemon Moon Rising introduces a new RvR public quest called Daemonball Rally.  There is a ball in a central location and each side has to return it to their drop off point.  There is an added twist, you can throw the ball to a teammate.  This will be available Empire/Chaos zones.

And finally, they are opening up the High Pass Cemetery to all tiers.  There will be no shortage of things to do with this live event.  Mark Davis, the Live Event lead, did a video podcast for the occasion.
