Warhammer Online Wild Hunt Event Begins

Mythic Entertainment fired over a press release this afternoon announcing the their Warhammer Online "Wild Hunt" live event is now underway.
Warhammer Online's One Year Anniversary Celebration kicks off with the Wild Hunt Live Event

With the one year anniversary of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR) upon us, Mythic Entertainment has begun the celebration by releasing the hounds in the start of the Wild Hunt live event. The summer skies have turned blood red and Kurnous, the Elven God of the Hunt, has grown angry with the ongoing war raging across his land. From now until September 7th, players of WAR will have the chance to prove their worth as mighty hunters or fall prey to the God of the Hunt!

Warhammer Online's One Year Anniversary Celebration includes:

'¢ New Wild Hunt Live Event and instanced dungeon, The Hunter's Vale, accessible from Elven RvR areas, takes place on Warhammer Online from August 31 September 7 where groups of six players will battle against the ultimate quarry

'¢ Rare items found in Wild Hunt include the Hartsblood Draft, the mystic Bleeding Hart Charm and the Fleet Stag Mantle, a rare cloak made from the skin of his sacred deer that transforms players into a mighty stag, with the ability to travel at the same speed as mounts

'¢ Following the Wild Hunt live event, limited weekend-only events are planned with special versions of the Mourkain Temple (September 11-14), Gates of Ekrund (September 18-21) and Temple of Isha (September 25-28) scenarios

'¢ During the month of September, players will receive a 20% experience and renown bonus, special in-game items, veteran rewards, fireworks, exploding stout and much more

Celebrate the anniversary with honor, hone your weapons, and sharpen your aim but, most importantly, offer proper respect to the God of the Hunt! Find out more about the Wild Hunt Live Event and the one year anniversary celebration of WAR at www.warhammeronline.com.
