    Grab your beach balls and your battle axes, for the next two nights it will be nothing but hot sand and summer fun as you and your allies descend upon the Land of the Dead!

    We're excited to announce the start of Phase III of the Patch 1.3 PTS, and with it the opening of the Tomb of the Vulture Lord. You and five of your friends can face the challenges within as you dodge traps and combat ancient opponents. If fresh meat is more your forte, though, when your side lays claim to the Land of the Dead you can purge your enemy within! No place is safe as you overrun their Public Quests, invade their Lairs and dungeon instances, or even assault their warcamp and exude your dominance over the Necropolis! Great rewards await you for your efforts.

    So, join us tonight (6/9) and tomorrow (Wednesday, 6/10) starting at 7:00 PM EDT for a battle royale as we put the Land of the Dead to the test! Push Tier 4, gain resources, and defend your claim on the sands and the treasure that lies beneath!

    While testing will be open all week, anyone who logs in the next two nights between 7:00 PM EDT and 12:00 AM EDT and participates will be awarded the following:

    Shroud of Imrathepis
    - Linens taken from the burialshroud of Prince Imrathepis. Those who wrap the burial shroud abouttheir body are protected from harm regenerating minor wounds andinjuries.

    And before you ask, yes players who stand above the crowd and give excellent feedback and great insight will have a chance to win their character an Imperial Griffon or Enslaved Manticore from their king!

    Please note that this is a hands-off event. Mythic staff will be observing the natural progression of the mechanics as both sides battle it out for supremacy. So remember to build up resources by capturing Tier 4 zones, looting your enemies, and returning the resources to your Expedition Quartermaster near your Flight Master in the capital city.

    There's a lot to know about the Land of the Dead, so we recommend you check out the new LotD FAQ and Information Page, including the back-story and podcasts that give you an in-depth look at what you are about to face!

    So, grab your sword and board 'cause the surfs up and crying to your mummy won't help if you miss out! We look forward to seeing you out there, and as always, be sure to submit your feedback on the PTS Forums and tell us what you think. While having fun is important, our goal this week is to ensure that 1.3 is ready for prime-time, and only you can help accomplish that!

    See you on the battlefield,
    The Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning Team
