Khaines Embrace is the Dark Elf and High Elf tier 1 scenario. The objective of this scenario is similar to Domination but with a slight variant. The main objective of this scenario is to capture both objectives and unleash Khaine's Wrath. After you control both objectives for 10 seconds Khaine's Wrath is unleashed and everyone around in the objective is slain. The first team to reach 500 or the team with the highest points after 15 minutes wins.
Number of players: 12 v 12
Things To Keep In Mind
- In order to capture a flag in this scenario you must right click on it and channel it for the time needed. Damage will interrupt you.
- Dodge the fire, you can stand in between the Altar and an Objective and survive the blast, but your positioning needs to be damn near perfect. You can also survive near each spawn point
All strategies for this scenario are rather similar and there is only one that I can think of that works;
Basic: Grab the objective closest to your spawn point then fight for the other. When you have both avoid the fire wave. Rinse and Repeat.
Tanks: As always you're the big dumb Orcs (No pun intended) that will push back the enemies. Do whatever it takes you drive them back far enough away from the flag so your team can capture it.
Melee DPS: You're very important in this scenario because you control the enemies movements. Similar to the Tanks your main purpose is to push back the enemy team and allow your ranged DPS, or someone named Bob to capture the flag.
Ranged DPS: There are a few places ranged DPS can hide in this scenario, if you're good at jumping you'll be able to get up on pillars and broken walls around the Battlefield Objectives, but it is challenging.
Healers: Your job is to keep the tanks and melee DPS up. Since the main purpose of this Scenario is to push the enemy team away from the flag and capture it the Melee DPS will be more important then the Ranged DPS.
Maximizing Renown Earned
Maximizing the Renown you can earn in this Scenario is very similar to Nordenwatch and Gates of Ekrund. If you're a healer, heal if you're DPS, DPS. Pretty sound advice if you ask me. On a more serious note, as ranged DPS you'll have a hard time finding a good spot to position yourself and hide yourself from the Melee DPS.The only place I've found to hide is up on the broken walls near each of the Battlefield Objectives.
If you're Melee DPS you can hang out in the cave in the center of the map and kill all other players that run through.
