May Preview – House Velaryon

 |  By 

NOTICE 5/9/2024 4:40PM ET :

We previously announced an inaccurate stat for the upcoming Queen Alicent Hightower, The Dowager Queen hero. That section has been updated accordingly:

Correct: Reinforcement Capacity Vs. Seats of Power
Incorrect: Rallied Troop Capacity vs Seats of Power

We apologize for any confusion!

Hailing from Old Valyria, House Velaryon have long served as loyal allies of the Targaryens, assisting even in Aegon’s Conquest with their great fleet. So many of their line have been made Master of Ships that some jest that the title is a Velaryon birthright. Yet perhaps their most famous contributions–and profound sorrows–unfolded during the Dance of Dragons…

Look for these Featured Rewards throughout the House Velaryon event:

  • Iron Scales to craft the Tide Lord’s Battlegarb gear set
  • Master of Ships Totem Disc to craft the Master of Ships Totem trinket
  • Braavosi Loan trophies can be traded for prizes in the Recipes tab of your Inventory while the Queen Who Never Was or Flight From the Red Keep events are active
  • New Dragon Gear Set Piece: Rogue Scarlet’s Peytral
  • New Heroes: Ser Otto Hightower, Hand of the King and Queen Alicent Hightower, The Queen Dowager
  • Exclusive House of the Dragon Events and Rewards
  • Copper Stars by participating in Seasonal Milestone Events

Let’s take a closer look into what’s new in May!
