In February, participate in the largest tournament held in the history of Westeros, the Tourney at Harrenhal! Represent your house by entering into each competition — the Archery Contest, the Joust, and the Grand Melee. During each phase of the tournament, look for special elite enemies on the map with rotating vulnerabilities.
The day is warm, though winter has not yet ended. In honor of Lord Whent’s daughter’s nameday the dark fortress of Harrenhal is adorned with banners; cheers and battle-clangor fill the air. Challengers from far and wide have come to test their mettle. Even Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, who seldom rides in tournaments, is preparing to enter the lists.

Gear Season VII: Laughing Knight Gear Set
At the Tourney at Harrenhal, there appeared a mysterious figure, known as the Knight of the Laughing Tree. Defending the honor of a bullied crannogman, he wore mismatched armor along with a shield that branded a smiling weirwood.
With the Laughing Knight Gear Set, expect to see a mix of Infantry, Ranged, and Cavalry Rally Combat stats! This is a great set to use if you’re planning on rallying against Seats of Power or other players. Want to focus your build on a specific troop type? Here are the individual pieces you’ll want to craft:
- Laughing Knight’s Steel Greaves (Boots)
- Laughing Knight’s Jousting Spear (Weapon)
- Laughing Knight’s Arboreal Tabard (Chest)
- Laughing Knight’s Winter Rose Ring (Ring)
- Laughing Knight’s Steel Armet (Helmet)

Let’s take some time to recap the awesome Dragons we featured last month.
The first Dragon we featured in the new year for the Dragon Showcase was Bubi! Trained by FORCE from Kingdom 837, Bubi is as powerful as he is adorable.
Next up, let’s meet FRÂÑK THE TÂÑK’s dragon, Mr McGregor! You can always spot him in Kingdom 1109 in the midst of battle creating chaos.
If you’re interested in getting your Dragon featured in a future showcase, tweet us your submissions on Twitter @GOTConquest using the #GOTCDragon hashtag!
