June Preview – Honor of the Kingsguard: Defiance of Duskendale

 |  By 

Among the many battles and tales to involve the Kingsguard, few are so fabled or fresh in memory as those that participated in what would become known as The Defiance of Duskendale, where the duplicity of a fading noble house in the Crownlands must contend with the stalwart bravery of knights who would give anything to protect their liege.

Participate in this month’s events in Game of Thrones: Conquest and look forward to the following content for June!

  • Honor of the Kingsguard: Defiance of Duskendale event arc

New Gear Set: Targaryen Kingsguard

Part of Gear Season 9, which includes a 9th stat slot for high-level gear pieces, the Targaryen Kingsguard gear set arrives in June! Visually, the gear set is a representation of the Kingsguard uniform and sword worn by Ser Barristan Selmy during the Defiance of Duskendale. You can start collecting its crafting materials by participating in the House Darklyn event on May 31st!

This month’s set is themed around Ranged Combat and you can expect to see Ranged stats that apply in all situations as well as ones that are focused towards PvP and Seats of Power.
