Outdoor PvP in Zangarmarsh
Posted On June 19, 2021
When it comes to PvP zones, Zangarmarsh is one of the most popular additions to the Burning Crusade Outland continent. The area itself is home to numerous streams and pools, representing the peaceful and serene environment of the Draenei. The area itself is home to the ruins of Twin Spire, the target of the Horde and Alliance factions in outdoor PvP battles.
The spiers themselves are located near the southern shore of Serpent Lake and the area around them makes up another outdoor PvP arena. The objective of both sides is to control the beacons at the eastern and western ends of the area and carry the flag to the tower located in the middle. By controlling the tower in the center of the area, your faction gains control of the graveyard, earns rewards from NPCs, and collects benefits for the area.
To capture the beacons in either of the east and west towers, players must gather and have more people in the area for their faction. Over time, the beacon will eventually become the possession of whichever side has more people. The Alliance will get a blue beacon while the Horde will get a red beacon. To get the central tower, both beacons must first be controlled by the same faction.
After a faction has taken the beacons from both towers, that faction can approach certain NPCs and get flags to use in taking the central tower. Any of the NPCs can be found in Telredor and Zabra’jin. Players who collect these flags will appear with large flags on their back. To be successful in eventually capturing the central tower, a player only needs to bring the flag back to the central tower. After one player is defeated with a flag, another player can visit the NPCs and collect one. After the beacons change, the NPCs stop handing out flags.
For those servers where a faction can gain control of the central tower, that faction will get certain rewards. They immediately gain access to use the graveyard at Twin Spire Ruins. They also get a 5% damage boost.
In addition to game bonuses, by controlling the central tower, players can earn reputation tokens for all honorable kills in the area. To use these tokens, players need to visit the NPCs listed above and turn them in for special items. The same tokens found here can be used in Hellfire Peninsula, as the tokens are the same.
