All ye brave souls and thrill-seekers of the Hardcore Realms, gear up for the ultimate thrill – Rule #9: A Duel to the Death! You thought you’ve seen it all, didn’t you? Well, buckle up, because this new feature might just make you reconsider.
Draw Your Swords: Duels to the Death
Step up the excitement with Duels to the Death, where losing is not an option. To initiate this, you can either right-click the target’s portrait and request a Duel to the Death from the context menu, or you can get your fingers typing with /makgora in the chat window. Remember, the keyword here is “death” – and in Hardcore Realms, that means game over.
Before you get to cross swords, both parties need to read and acknowledge a warning message, and typing “I Agree” kicks off the duel. Are you up for it?
Bragging Rights: The String of Ears
But what’s a duel without some bragging rights? Winners of these high-stakes duels don’t just walk away with a boosted ego – they walk away with a trophy, too! Each victory gives the winner a String of Ears buff.
This special cosmetic buff increases with each win, creating a visible count of your dueling prowess. A quick glance at your character will tell spectators, friends, and potential challengers just how formidable you are.
However, there are a few rules to follow. You won’t be able to earn the String of Ears buff before level 10 and the character you are duelling now needs to be minimum level 19. Plus, the level gap between you and your opponent can’t be too wide. We wouldn’t want any one-sided duels, now would we?
In the Arena: High Stakes, Higher Excitement
Duels to the Death are more than just a chance to prove your worth – they’re a heart-pounding, adrenaline-pumping feature that adds another layer of thrill to the Hardcore Realms experience. Not only will these duels test your mettle, but they’ll also provide a spectacle for others to enjoy.
So, draw your swords, prepare your spells, and get ready to duel – to the death! Will you emerge victorious and add another ear to your string, or will you face the ultimate defeat? Only time will tell in the Hardcore Realms. The gauntlet has been thrown, the challenge issued. Who’s got the guts to take it up?
Last Edit: 30th June, edited to add that the character you are duelling now needs to be minimum level 19 in order to earn the String of Ears buff. As per this update here.
