In August, experience the Dawn Age in the latest event series in Game of Thrones: Conquest!

“The First Men called us ‘the Children’, but we were born long before them”

By participating in events in this series, you’ll obtain Alligator Skins to craft the Crannogman Trapper gear set and Kindled Pinecone Sap to craft the Kindled Pinecone trinket. You’ll also have the chance to obtain Bronze Weaponry trophies which can be traded in for Recipes while the Arrival of the First Men and Pact events are active.

To pair with the Strategic Terrain events happening this month, enjoy the following bonuses at Strategic Terrain nodes:

  • +20% to Defender Defense
  • +20% to Defender Health
  • +25% to Troop Load

We have even added in some additional recipes that were not previously available in April, so be sure to check them all out!

Here is a list of the events that will drop Iron Crowns:

Arc Recipe Events Update

This month’s Arc Recipe events have some new additions as well! We’ve reworked these events to account for new Gear Template recipes.

In Arrival of the First Men, you will be offered different recipes depending on your current Lord Level. This means that as you are able to craft higher level gear in the Smithy, you will also be able to create higher level Gear Templates with these recipes!

We’ll have new recipes on offer later in the month with part II of the arc recipe events (The Pact) so be sure to come back and check out what’s on offer!

Festival of the Smith

The Festival of the Smith is upon us and will begin on August 12th until the 19th! For the entire week, you can earn Gifts and Favors by completing Daily Quests. Send Favors to earn Points for you and your Allegiance, and trade Favors for time-limited Recipes. Be sure to come back every day to complete your Dailies so that you can contribute points towards your Allegiance’s progressive quest for even more rewards!

Let us know if you have any feedback on this event. You can post your comments in the #events channel in our Discord!

Feast of Cakes and Pies

Updated 8/17/21: We’ve decided to move this feast back a few days to avoid another conflicting recipe event. Look out for it at the beginning of September!

We will be hosting the Feast of Cakes and Pies event in celebration of wealth and long-lasting alliances! Participate by purchasing Lemon Cakes from the Store or baking Eel Pies from the Inventory Recipes menu and sending them to your friends as gifts. By doing so, you’ll earn points for the event to obtain some great rewards, so be sure to check back later this month!

Gear Season VI: Crannogman Trapper Gear Set

Continuing our sixth season of gear, August introduces the Crannogman Trapper gear set, which focuses on defensive Seat of Power combat! Throughout each piece, you’ll find stats that will boost Infantry, Ranged, and Cavalry Defense as well as Defense Vs. Seats of Power. To further bolster your defenses, this gear set also features bonuses that will boost your Reinforcement Marching Speed, Seat of Power Reinforcement Max March Size, and Seat of Power Reinforcement Capacity.

Let us know what you think of the Crannogman Trapper gear set after seeing it in-game. You can discuss your builds and feedback in the #smithy channel in our Discord!

Dragon Showcase

Let’s take a look back at the Dragons we featured on the Dragon Showcase in July! Here is Stocks’ Dragon, Astramiria representing the SANDS allegiance in Kingdom 737. Astramiria stands proud and tall protecting its home.

Up next is LisaMaeQN’s Dragon, Taegail! Don’t be fooled by his size as he’s growing to be a force to be reckoned with.

House Heraldry

Last month, we featured HouseDreamgazer’s banner for House Heraldry! Here is how they describe their tale:

“Long ago before the Targaryens ruled the land, a young maiden was sacrificed to a dragon. When the dragon tried to use its flame upon her, she did not burn, for she had the reborn soul of a dragon.”

Interested in having your banner featured in August? Tweet us your submissions along with a 2-3 sentence description of your banner to our Twitter page @GOTConquest using the #GOTCHeraldry hashtag!
