Riders of Icarus shows off the mechanics of Manastone battles


Do you like picking fights in PvP? Riders of Icarus gives you plenty of options in that department, but the biggest fights are the ones going down when the Manastone battles open up. A new article on the official site details the mechanics of these fights, which occur twice a week on a fixed schedule. Once the announcement goes out to the players on the server, a Manastone will spawn in the Exarahn Badlands, and it’s up to guild alliances and the Militia to see who can claim the valuable artifact on the field.

Whoever picks up the Manastone will be unable to attack, mount up, or use items, relying entirely upon allies for defense. Bringing the Manastone back to the Vantara Manastone Oracle counts as capturing the valuable artifact, providing the winning faction with multiple reward options including a multi-seat mount. It’s a wide-scale capture-the-flag style of battle, and it’ll require coordination and care to hold the stone when everyone starts getting in on the PvP aspect of the game.
