Moorcroft? Moor-cats is moor-like it.
Yes, as these painful puns signify, it is the return of the Kataclysmic Confrontation event!
As fancy zoologists will tell you, nary a magical grimoire gets written that is not hungered after by insatiable feline monsters – now, the Knights of Cradle must once again rally against the hordes! The hordes of book-eating magical kitty kats.
Also: Moorcroft Prize Boxes!
Kataclysmic Confrontation is an event that will run for a limited time, but will return again in the future! Meow! Books!
The goal of the event is to collect Ancient Page tokens for all-new kat gear in Moorcroft Manor. If you have participated in a previous Kataclysmic Confrontation and still have Ancient Page tokens, guess what! Those are still valid – because ancient arcane knowledge never goes out of style.
Black kats are monsters that focus on powerful curse attacks. They can randomly be found in place of any spookat-type monster in any Tier 2 and Tier 3 level level of the Clockworks (Missions and Arcade Gates). Black kats often, but no always, drop Ancient Page tokens (1 token in Tier 2, 3 tokens in Tier 3). Specifically, any 'guaranteed encounters' of black kats in a mission do not drop page tokens, though the mission guarantees them as rewards (once a day).
Ancient Page Tokens do not expire. Acquiring all the Kat gear will likely take multiple events.
Other things to know:
-The event is available for knights rank 4-1 and up.
-Event is scheduled to run until August 28th
Moorcroft Prize Box
After another surprise black kat attack, the ghostly occupants of Moorcroft Manor are exploring ways to fund a restoration effort for their damaged Archives. The denizens of Moorcroft Manor have reached out to those in charge of the Haven Treasury in order to sell their spectral wares and eerie accoutrements directly to knights who are looking to give their Guild Halls a bit of otherworldly character!
*From now until 12:00 PM PDT on August 28th, 2013, exclusive Moorcroft Prize Boxes will be available for purchase directly from the Supply Depot!*
Each Moorcroft Prize Box has a special prize inside. Possible prizes include wide array of ornate, Victorian-style furnishings, such as the velvet covered Antique Benches, faintly glowing Gaslamps as well as spooky Moorcroft items like the Skull Piles. Not only that, but a lucky few players may find the very rare Cursed and Mystical Tome Stands, a Curious Mewkat, or even a Zombie Bellhop to wander around your Guild Hall! Each box also has a chance to contain a piece of bonus equipment, such as a Slot Upgrades or a Heat Amplifier.
Remember: Moorcroft Prize Boxes require no key to open, and all items found inside a Moorcroft Prize Box are unbound, so share with your friends!
