The Warhammer Herald has a sneak peek with screenshots for the upcoming Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.
Dark Elf Sneak Peek
The Dark March Has Begun!
During the Dark Elf Sneak Peak which took place from late December to early January, players were able to engage in the first tier of PvE-only content in Chapters one through four in the assault on Ulthuan. This limited beta included a number of quests, public quests, and encounters centered on crushing the Shining Guard. Here's an example of the exciting content and storylines they faced in the first few chapters:
Chapter 1: Black Ark Landing - The assault begins against the Mages of Narthain and any who oppose the exiled kin of Ulthuan. The time has come for you to prove yourself worthy to fight in the name of Lord Uthorin.
Chapter 2: Malekith's forces push southward into the Blighted Isle, sieging the town of Nimosar and consigning the ancient trees of Mistwood Grove to the flames.
Chapter 3: The Uthorin Host sets its sights upon Chrace, determined to replenish their ranks of captives from the White Lions who call Gon'Seraph home.
Chapter 4: The outcome of the struggle in Chrace hinges upon the defense of Tor Achare and control of the Valetear Menhir.
The following careers were available in this phase:
The Witch Elf: Witch Elves are the maiden-elves who are wedded to Khaine, the Lord of Murder, in midnight rites of blood sacrifice and magic. The decadent fragile looks of the maidens of Ulthuan are nothing compared to the intoxicating beauty of the Witch Elves. Witch Elves go to war alongside the Dark Elf armies, eager to prove themselves in the eyes of their god. For them the battlefield is just another temple of Khaine, and the screams of the dying are praises sung in honor of the bloody-handed god.
The Disciple of Khaine: The chosen dark priests of the bloody handed god, The Disciples of Khaine, can be found on the frontline of any Druchii assault. Using wicked ritual blades, a Disciple harvests the essence of their enemy and offers it to Khaine in exchange for fell blessings and dark powers. These dark gifts allow the Disciple to tend to the needs of the Dark Elf host, mending bones, suppressing pain, and even raising critically injured warriors to fight again. The Disciple of Khaine is the shepherd of war, ensuring the bloody slaughter can continue in the name of their dark god.
The Sorceress: In times of war the Witch King calls upon his Convents of Sorceresses to rain death and destruction down upon the target of his ire. Their magical prowess will blight the warriors of the opposing army, scorch their souls from their bodies and bring ruination and curses aplenty upon their heads.
