About the Map
This map has the 'Artifacts' secondary mechanic:
- Every three minutes one of the artifcats will become active.
Artifacts are channels. Being hit will cancel the channel. You cannot stealth or invuln the channel.
- The player that channels the artifact gains an additional effect.
'Sword of Reaping' - in the north of the map - increases all damage and condition damage done by 20% for 90 seconds for the team that channeled it.
- The player that channels this artifact also gains a passive effect that will auto-finish enemy players who they kill. These players can still be revived, but the animation is approximately a quarter of the standard finish animation and cannot be interrupted.
'Shield of Life' - in the south of the map - increases health by 5000 and toughness by 100 for 90 seconds for the team that channeled it.
- The player that channels this artifact also gains a passive effect that will immediately revive you upon your next down. This effect occurs once.
In addition to the artifacts, players gain a stack of 'Coliseum Prestige' for each enemy kill. Upon reaching 7 stacks, players are able to activate 'Rally The Crowd'. This boosts stats by 50 for each team member. This effect lasts for 90 seconds.
Map Specific Rotations
The artifacts have, for the most part, little effect on the game.
The 'Sword of Reaping' is realistically the only one worth channeling.
Only highly mobile classes such as 'Roamers' should go for the artifacts. The distance between the artifacts and the other nodes is fairly large.
