Conqueror's Blade's Game Modes Offer Something for Everyone

Welcome warriors! So you were browsing the vast world of free-2-play games and happened upon Conqueror's Blade. From the raging battlefields to cinematic combat movements, the lure of an epic living breathing battlefield caught your attention. Conqueror's Blade has a lot to offer for players of all skill levels and gameplay preferences. 

There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to this little gem. When I was first introduced to Conqueror's Blade during the European-X test in 2018 I fell in love with it. It is that passion for this game that led me to create a community based around teaching people the finer points of the game.

Now I come from an MMORPG background and love consensual PVP. My community, on the other hand, has leaned more towards the PvE side for a while. When I presented it to the community many wrote the game off because they thought it was  "Just another PVP Game". This misconception is probably one of the biggest missteps in promoting this game because there is a vibrant world filled with content that doesn't involve PvP at all.

While Conqueror's Blade features some really great PvP, it is entirely optional. There is a large amount of content in the game that does not require PvP at all. Now I'm not saying you shouldn't give the amazing PvP in Conqueror's Blade a try, but I am saying that if you’re the type of player who does not like to PvP, don't write this game off.

To illustrate my point let me breakdown the types of content you will experience in Conqueror's Blade.

Person vs Environment (PvE)

Training Camp (AI)

In the Training Camp battles, you face off with 5 AI opponents in traditional field battle style maps. The goal is to capture and hold various points on the map. It works like the traditional domination maps in most FPS games with a little twist. Each time you die your team loses 30 points, each time a resupply point is taken you lose 25 points and each time an objective change hands the losing team loses 50 points. The first team to hit 0 gets to listen to that sad song of defeat. This mode is great for earning fast bronze and the occasional bag of silver. They are also great ways to complete your 3 daily quests for 1, 3 and 5 field or siege battles.

Rewards:

  • Pouch of Silver Coins
  • Random Hero Equipment (Rare)
  • Random Hero Schematic (Uncommon)
  • Random Barding Schematic (Rare)

Expeditions 1-3

There are 3 tiers of Expeditions and each one adds a new twist. Higher difficulty brings higher era troops up through silver. Each Expedition will have a clear objective from defending a fort to save a village. Many are scripted fights that follow a chain of events, regardless of how well you fight.

These are great ways to earn honor and experience for your troops and also provide you with Weekly Quest Completion. There are 4 weekly quests for each of the 3 expeditions. Completing them will reward you with crafting supplies, silver, honor and the occasional battle relic.

Rewards:

  • Paint & Lacquer
  • Steel Bars
  • Steel Plates
  • Wire & Thread
  • Metal Rings

Weekly Rewards:

  • 4x On Campaign I - Fine Campaign Reward, 2,400 EXP, 600 Bronze, 10 House EXP, 1 Prestige
  • 3x On Campaign II - Fine Campaign Reward, 4,800 EXP, 900 Bronze, 20 House EXP, 1 Prestige
  • 2x On Campaign III - Fine Campaign Reward, 7,200 EXP, 1,200 Bronze, 30 House EXP, 1 Prestige

Wandering Rebels (1-3)

Along the roads and hillsides of the world map, you will find wandering Rebels. The Yellow-Orange ones typically will leave you alone unless you stand on top of them. The red ones will spot you and chase you down demanding your money or your life. You can fight any of these rebels and can even extort them if you engage the fight first. These fights can provide you with supplies, weapons, armor and a wealth of rebel equipment you can turn in for Fief quest rewards. These can be soloed in most cases, though you might want to bring a friend for the higher-level ones.

Rewards:

  • Weapons & Armor
  • Unit Kits
  • Rebel Trophies
  • Crafting Materials

Rebel Camps (1-3)

Rebel Camps can be found in the open-world map represented by red camp Icons with 1 to 3 Helmets signifying difficulty. These encounters are like traditional siege maps with a twist. 

There are a total of 3 Resupply Points, and 4 Capture points on this map. When a player steps into a capture point it will start an onslaught assault at the capture point. It is very important to prepare before beginning the capture.

By completing these events you can receive weekly quest rewards, rebel trophies for Fief Quests, and occasional bonus loot in the form of silver and crafting materials.

Rewards:

  • Weapons & Armor
  • Unit Kits
  • Rebel Trophies
  • Crafting Materials

Weekly Rewards:

  • 4x East Rebel Camp - Fair Loyalty Reward, 3,200 EXP, 800 Bronze, 20 House EXP, 1 Prestige

  • 4x Hard Rebel Camp - Grand Loyalty Reward, 9,600 EXP, 1,500 Bronze, 40 EXP, 1 Prestige

Fief Questing

This is quite possibly the fastest way to earn Honor in the game. You can earn from 50 to 700 honor per Fief quest and they reset daily allowing you even more opportunities to earn Honor. You can do a total of 20 per week so aim for the higher ones if you can. 

Fief quests range from providing raw crafting materials you've gathered from resource nodes to showing proof of heroic deeds in slaying rebels. Fief's Quests change every week. 

To complete a Fief quest you must have the desired material in your wagon. Then talk to the Warden in the Fief or click on the Fief from the world map and go to Fief Overview. Once the overview opens, click on the second tab "Fief Quests". The ones you can turn in are always at the top. You can cursor over each of the required materials to see how many you have in storage and on your wagon.

Rewards:

  • Experience
  • Honor
  • House Experience

We have seen a few special events rotate into the mix. From the Sea Rebel invasion to the Halloween themed events, these take the form of an Expedition and can range from easy to extremely difficult. The rewards for these are typically limited to a certain number of times per day. Doing more than the allowed allotment will provide drastically reduced rewards.
