Siege Warfare
The largest change in siege warfare in New Frontiers is that the walls of a keep can be besieged and broken down. While walls are far more difficult to breach than doors, collapsing a section of wall is possible. Defenders will have to defend all parts of the keep, not just the doors.

There will be four types of siege weapons in New Frontiers:
Rams for use on doors
Catapults for use on Keep walls and enemies
Ballistas for use on enemy siege weapons
Boiling Oil for use on enemies attacking a door.


ROOOOFLL INC THE CATAPULT ZERG!! :D

Additionally, keeps will be constructed so that point-blank area affect spells (PBAEs) will not work through keep walls and closed doors.
Yay ^^

Indeed Xplo - but all realms PBAOE is affected :)

The chanter whine has already begun on Vn ('Ill quit!') though Im sure the majority will see it as common sense.

Not sure I like that pbaoe won't be able to go through doors/walls :\ ... keeps is bloody huge, not like they can't move away from the pbaoe if some chanter decides to boom a little. Easily interrupted as well, gtaoe or that pbaoe dd chant those darn reavers got - ah well, guess it's just the normal behaviour from Mythic, nerfing something mainly used by the better groups/peoples, so that the actual cash cows will be able to break their weapons on doors :p

- old.anubis
So basicly what you're saying is, that neither side should be able to kill each other (because killing others would be classified as "farming")? GG - If I want a game where all I can do is /wave to the other players, I'd have picked EQ instead.

It's incredible easy to counter pbaoe, move out of range, interrupt or just CC those casters - even albs has figured out how to do that these days :rolleyes:

Towers

In New Frontiers, the term "Outpost" now signifies a keep surrounded by four protective towers. Each tower is located in a strategic location to the keep it protects: guarding a hilltop within firing range of a keep, overlooking a landing beach, defending a narrow approach, etc. Having these towers gives smaller guilds a chance to control a part of the frontier - towers will be able to be taken over just like keeps, with guild banners and spawned guards.

Is anyone else having issues viewing any of this? I've been trying all day and it just keeps coming up 'operation timed out'.

Don't know if its an issue with my internet at work though so thought I'd ask here before I go kill our servers... :D
