WAR News Day 4

Gamescom is wrapping up and Gamesday Baltimore has begun!  Over the past few days we have found out quite a bit about WAR's upcoming RvR Pack.  Today, several bloggers and players will attempt to answer even more of the questions raised by the community.

NOTE: Day 5 is up!

For coverage of Gamesday Baltimore, you can follow Gaarawarr, Mykiel and Artiee on Twitter.

I will update this page with news, but following the guys above will be the quickest way to get info.

Today's news (so far):

Gamesday Baltimore has begun!  The Mythic presentation starts at 1:15 EST.

Mykiel is doing a live stream of Mythic's presentation!.

Info from presentation:

  • The new RvR zone will not be accessed like the Land of the Dead.
  • No plans for a Guild Rank increase.
That's pretty much it for the info from the presentation.  Just a lot of "no comment" answers for the most part. I found it very disappointing.  This is supposed to be a fun and exciting time, but instead it is just frustrating.

  • Skaven will be involved in the 'RvR pack'.  No details on how except that they will not be a traditional race which starts at level 1 and lack archtypes.
  • The renown cap will be raised from 80 to 100.
  • The RvR Pack (Power, Progression and Personality) will be a paid expansion involving multiple purchase options.  
  • A new RvR zone, has to do with Skaven. Will be part of the campaign
  • RvR Campaign changes, so long Victory Points.
  • New Armor beyond Sovereign 
  • The RvR pack is due out before Christmas.
