Father's Day of Doom

Celebrate the Father Figure Who Raised Drakath

Join us this weekend as we celebrate fathers and father figures in-game and in real-life! This year, we're adding onto our seasonal Father's Day of Doom event with an all-new adventure. Travel back in time and play as young Drakath after he fled the castle of his Father, King Dethrix. Meet the warrior who would become like a father to him, teaching him the battle skills he'd need to survive. Blood. Sweat. Tears. If you would be king, there is much you'll need to sacrifice.

Celebrate Lore's Darkest Dad with a new ShadowScythe adventure

This weekend is Father's Day, and this year, we want to /cheer on all our fathers. But especially Sepulchure, the most maligned, misunderstood father an Empress could ever have. This weekend, log in and travel back in time to the days when Empress Gravelyn was knee-high to a skeletal warrior. Battle to help Sepulchure's undead assistant keep his little Princess from destroying the dracolich fortress and try to survive her first experiments into necromancy. She's her father's favorite, and he is a VERY PROUD PAPA. Making her cry might be the LAST thing you ever do. Literally.

  • Battle to round up the necro minions Baby Gravelyn loosed into the halls
  • Clean up after her... experiments (EW)
  • Give Baby Gravelyn her "snackies" (but do NOT ask about the ingredients)
  • Battle Baby Gravelyn's bestest, newest friend! (If you DARE)

Complete the adventure in the /nursery zone to unlock the One Final Task farming quest. Each time you complete it, you'll be able to choose another piece of the Shadow Phoenix armor set (shown above).

Plus, for all you shadow-loving heroes out there, complete the zone to unlock the ShadowScythe House Merge shop.
