The MOP Up: Warhammer Online’s Return of Reckoning ‘chickens out’

waugh? okay

Return of Reckoning’s rogue server changed how combat buffs worked and added a new level 40 quest that pays out in, er, a “Chicken Trophy.”

“This quest will send players back to T1 RvR Lakes and awards a choice of a Chicken Trophy for completion. As the previous requirements for the Chicken Trophies were largely not attainable, we’ve added this quest to give players a way to get these trophies while also encouraging them to party up and help out newer players in T1,” the team said.”
