December Preview – Aegon’s Conquest

 |  By 

Aegon’s War of Conquest begins!

Three centuries ago, Aegon the Conqueror and his sisters flew their dragons across Westeros and united a continent in their shadow. With ingenuity, courage, fire, and blood, they forged these fragmentary kingdoms into a legendary dynasty.

Participate in this month’s events to earn these brand new rewards:

  • Dragon Tempered Fabrics to craft the Dragon Rider gear set
  • Fiery Scarlet Earrings Parts to craft the Fiery Scarlet Earrings!
  • Wyrm Remains trophies can be traded for prizes in the Recipes tab of your Inventory while the Painted Table or Turn of the Wheel events are active!

Let’s go into more detail on December’s events and activities!

Coronation of Aegon

In Oldtown’s Starry Sept, Aegon the Conqueror dons a crown and becomes Aegon of the House Targaryen, First of His Name, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm. It is a moment so pivotal that the Maesters of the Citadel restart the calendar, dividing history into years Before and After the Conquest.

Starting on December 29th, for a duration of four days, participate in the Coronation of Aegon event by praying at the Shrine and sending Surrendered Swords to other players to earn points!

Surrendered Swords have a chance of dropping from the Shrine while this event is active, or they can be purchased from the Store.

New Gear Set: Dragon Rider

Your first chance to earn materials for the Dragon Rider gear set is during the Invasion of Dorne event on November 30th! Craft this set to prepare for the skies and boost your Ranged combat stats. Here are the main Ranged stats you can expect to see from it:

  • +Ranged Health/Defense/Attack
  • +Ranged Health/Defense/Attack Vs. Players
  • +Ranged Health/Defense/Attack Vs. Seats of Power
  • +Ranged Health/Defense/Attack Vs. Players Infantry
