Tax Wagon Pre-Season

Tax Wagon Pre-Season

Developer Commentary:

"The Mediah Merchant Union, located between Valencia and Calpheon, was given the sole rights to the "Royal Chef Certificate" by the Kingdom of Valencia. It turned out that they had agreed to send a Tax Wagon loaded with great amounts of currency every week.

It isn't long before the news on the Tax Wagon reaches the ears of many Adventurers. According to the Crow Merchants Guild, the Tax Wagon passes by Rakshan Oasis. The Tax Wagon content opens as the Valencian royal family requests help from the guild occupying the Castle, as they think something must be done about the planned attacks on the Tax Wagon from certain guilds who hear the information."

The Tax Wagon Pre-Season begins with this update. The Tax Wagon content is an expansion of Node/Siege War content. It will proceed differently from Hidden Outer Castle and Hidden Banquet Hall content in which entry is granted to guilds who've gained victory in certain Node Wars or Siege Wars. The attacking faction (guild occupying certain Nodes) can only attack the Tax Wagon with its many members, and the defending faction (guild occupying Valencia Castle) can only attack the attacking faction with less members.

We would like to ask for participation and support from many Adventurers during the pre-season of this Tax Wagon content in which you can either steal tributes or protect them.
