Strongholds won’t just be given to players; guilds will need to fight hard to win them. The stronghold zone is infested with orcs, mercs, and even dragons, and players will need to “evict” them in the most lethal way possible.
Once the keep is won, guilds will need to rebuild the ruins, structure by structure. These buildings, such as the lumberyard and marketplace, require true team effort and massive number of donations. The upshot of all this work is not only a place to call home but new quests and group events to explore.
