Call to Arms Specific Notes

  • This does count towards fulfillment of the "Straight to Helm!" Skirmish Achievement.
  • Any monster killed can drop a Cruel Enchantment of a random low rank.
  • Teams can be mixed between a wide level range, and the monsters auto scale their damage given and received as appropriate to each character.
  • It appears that each character will appear to themselves to be flagged as the party leader when entering the queue singly. When joining a team then leadership will be assigned as normal.
  • A Call to Arms only counts as a level appropriate skirmish for Daily Skirmish purposes if the normal version would be in the correct range for the character.
  • A Call to Arms does count as a Skirmish for purposes of earning the Skirmish hour reward of 1000 Astral Diamonds.
  • Loot Mode is always set to Round Robin.
  • General monster drops appear to be dictated by the level of the character that dealt the majority of damage to monster, so in a group of mixed low and high level characters much of the gear dropped will be unusable by the lower level ones (though still sellable obviously).
