Mythic Entertainment has announced an upcoming in-game event, Night of Murder, for its MMO Warhammer Online.
During this period, which runs from 10 to 17 February, players can gain event influence by completing quests and daily tome tasks. The ‘Marked For Death’ quests are given out by Witch Hunters and Witch Elves, who are located through the game in scenarios, warcamps and capital cities. Killing enemy players and NPCs will gain players the rewards of the Night of Murder event which include:
* Basic – Blessing (+10% xp/renown/damage/incoming healing) and lasts for 3 in-game days
* Advanced – Well-Mounted Skull (Places a pike next to the body of a fallen foe, topped with their head.)
* Elite – Khaine’s Caress (event-slot item with career specific stats)
* World Drop – Lobbin’ Noggin & Burning Blood Potion (e.g. Khaine’s Regard, the ring, no longer drops)
Game servers will go down on Wednesday 10 February at 08:30 GMT and will come back up at noon. Here’s a brief description of the event from Mythic:
“As darkness falls on the Night of Murder, the worshippers of death bathe the land in blood, each intent on proving his or her devotion to the Elf god Kaela Mensha Khaine. It is a time that the forces of Destruction are all too willing to exploit. Assassins infiltrate the cities, while on the battlefield the differences between Good and Evil fade beneath the crimson haze of bloodlust. None are immune to the will of Khaine during this dark holiday.”
