Castle Siege

Home » Game guide » Castle Siege
Castle Siege is a mass PvP event where four clans fight against each other to conquer a Castle. Only clans with level 5 or higher can participate in Castle Siege. Battle occurs every Friday and it lasts 30 min. During this time the defending clan should prevent Holy Artifact to be imprinted by enemy clans or should try to destroy enemy clan camps, while attacking clans should protect their camps and try to imprint the Castle Holy Artifact. If all camps are destroyed, defending clan wins. When Holy Artifact is imprinted, the clan whose Clan Leader imprints the artifact, becomes the new ruler of the castle until the next period. During this time, conquering clan has access to special Castle Siege features and benefits described below in detail.


Bidding


Castles are by structure similar to Fortresses and there is limited number of Castles per server. Meaning that only top clans with enough resources can successfully participate in conquering Castle. If Clan wants to participate in a Castle Siege, Clan Leader must bid to the desired Castle with Clan Adena. Starting bid for each Castle starts from 1,000,000 Adena. Bids to Castle Siege are open every Friday (time depends on your server, more details can be found here). Three clans with the highest bids will be selected as attacking clans. Conquering clan from the previous period is selected to be defending clan. Very first Castle Siege (or Siege after special circumstances like server merge) starts only with attacking clans.

Other bidding rules:

  • Clan Leader can re-bid to a different Castle, but there is a 5% fee from the last bid amount
  • Clan Leader can only bid higher amount than the current 3-rd highest bid
  • Once bid is made, it cannot be withdrawn. But clans with unsuccessful (not winning) bid will be fully refunded (except of a case of simultaneous bids described above when 5% fee will be deducted)
  • If there are no opponent bids, your clan must imprint Holy Artifact of the Castle, no matter that the enemy participant is not present. If you don’t imprint Holy Artifact in this case, Castle will be without an owner for the next period
  • Bids that are made 1 minute before the end will extend bidding time by 3 minutes. End time can be extended 10 times up to max 30 minutes and can’t exceed 20:30 (depending on your server time)
  • During the extension time your clan can only bid once regardless of extension bids


Battle


Castle Siege starts every Saturday at 19:30 GMT London (other time zones can be found here). Clan members of participating clans can enter the Castle Siege 10 minutes before (at 19:20 GMT). During this time, players can only move within their base. Players can’t enter Castle Siege with parties, these are automatically disbanded and must be recreated again inside the Castle Siege.


Main objective of Castle Siege is to defend Holy Artifact for the defending clan while objective for attacking clans is to imprint Castle Holy Artifact. The first clan that imprints Castle Holy Artifact during Siege time (30 min.) wins the Siege. If Holy artifact isn’t imprinted during the time or all three camps are destroyed, a defending clan wins the Siege. Attacking clans can cooperate or fight each other, but only attacking clan that imprints the artifact first can be the winner of the Siege. If attacking clan camp was destroyed by an enemy clan, all clan members of clan whose camp was destroyed will be removed from the Siege.

During the Castle Siege participants can interact with other structures that are located on the Castle Battlefield and may help change result of the battle by providing temporary benefits. Participants can interact with these structures:
