Outdoor PvP in Nagrand
Another of the many new battlefields located in the heart of Outland is that of Nagrand. It is considered one of the most important strongholds for both factions and is therefore a hotly contested and popular battleground. Holding the city means using NPCs and special vendors in the area, just like other battlefields. This particular PvP location consists of wresting control of the city from the faction that holds the city at any given time. This includes the violent defeat of the entire city. However, there are numerous Wyvern outposts located around the city that allow players to bombard the city from above.
Attack on the city
For traditional ground attacks, the city is accessible from one of four bridges. However, there are very high level NPC guards at the end of these bridges who automatically side with the faction that holds the city. There are a total of 15 of these guards that must be defeated to take control of the city. Due to the power of these NPCs, careful strategy is most often required before storming the city.
Usually the first step is a good bombardment of the city. Each firebomb deals 900-1100 AOE damage and the player is given 8 firebombs to use with each Wyvern flight. The bombs themselves only damage NPC guards and opposing faction players.
Guardians will eventually respawn after being defeated, but there is a five minute gap between spawns and only one guardian can respawn during that time period. This means that within 30 minutes only 6 guards can respawn. Once all 15 guards are defeated, the timer increases to one hour, giving the raiders enough time to take over the city.
Taking over the city
Once all 15 guards have been dispatched, the attacking force can begin the process of capturing the city. The overall process is very similar to Hellfire Peninsula. The only goal is to have more attacking players in the city than defenders for a long enough period of time to take control. Once this is done, the city is returned to the control of the raiders, and when the guards are respawned, they will fight for the new faction.
Rewards for defeat
After defeating and capturing the city, the other NPCs in the city also become friendly to your faction. The NPC researcher wants you to collect crystal dust for him, which he will reward with Halaa Research Tokens, which in turn can be used to purchase items from another NPC vendor in the area. You also earn Halaa Battle Tokens by defeating other players in PvP battles.
