Things To Keep In Mind
- Man the Siege Weapons... They hurt!
- Healers.. STAY WITH THE FLAG CARRIER.
- As with other scenarios try to have a tank pick up the flag.
Strategy Uno: Healers stay with the flag carrier, DPS Stay near the enemies base and hold off their spawn while the rest of the team cap the flag.
Strategy One: Everyone zerg the flag, and zerg it back to cap it.
Common Strategy: Kill the enemy team in the middle, don't even bother with the flags and cry that this scenario pop'd and Mourkain Temple didn't
Tanks: Your job is to run over to the enemies base and grab the flag. Or if no one is coordinated in the scenario make sure to keep the fight in the middle of the zone so both teams can blow each other up with Siege Weapons.
Melee DPS: You have two different things you can do based on how organized everyone is. First is follow the big zerg around and kill people. Or if someone is running the flag hold off the enemies spawn while they cap it. If it is a huge zerg in the middle, hop on the Siege Weapons. You will stay alive much easier this way.
Ranged DPS: Kill stuff, blow stuff up. In this scenario, you just follow the enemies around and kill them, you aren't required to be organized at all.
Healers: Heal order for you is Yourself, Flag Carrier, Other Healers, DPS.
Maximizing Renown Earned
To maximize the Renown you earn in this scenario, you will HAVE to win it. This is the most commonly "Fought out" Scenario. I'd say 1/10 times I do this SC people actually even try to run the flag. You can try to persuade them to run the flag, or set an example by doing it yourself. This will usually trigger the retardation of your team-mates off.
