Rival Kingdoms: Ancients

A page listing every single ancient within Rival Kingdoms along with their descriptions, abilities, strategy during battle, as well as information for how to obtain them.

Note: If an image is greyed out, it’s not because we don’t have information for them, It just means that we need a new image for that Ancient.  If anyone has one of the greyed out Ancients below, I’d appreciate it if you could send me a screen-capture of the icon on the Ancients page using our contact form.  Thanks!

Rival Kingdoms: Winter is Coming…

New announcement on 6/24/2015.  New Campaign Coming soon!!!

(NEW CAMPAIGN AVAILABLE NOW: Banemaw’s Hunt!)

The following is a message found in game…

The Northern realm gathers on a chilly winter’s day to await the much anticipated union between Foreveil, the eldest son of the Snow Leopard Clan’s leader, and Birna, the legendary warrior from the Ice Bear Clan.  Upon marriage, these two powerful clans will unite into one royal family.  But just as the ceremonious wedding commences, Forevel receives a chilling shock down his spine.  Is this a sign?

With the Impending alliance between the two largest clans in the region, the north would be ruled by one dominant force.  A rival clan, the Frostwolves, is wary of this imbalance and sends their most powerful witch doctor to place a hex on Foreveil.

As Foreveil recites his sacred vows to his beloved Birna, the witch doctor’s hex comes to fruition.  Foreveil’s fate takes a turn for the worst as he transformes into an ice dragon.  Both Foreveil and Birna have no choice but to flee the lands in hope of finding sanctuary in the frozen wastelands of the north, never to return again…

Years pass…

While hunting in the outskirts of the mountainous Norus region, Birna notices peculiar tracks imprinted in the freshly fallen snow.

Starting next week, journey across Estara in search of the witch doctor, Banemaw, in the Winter’s Bane event!

Erasmus

Erasmus

Unlock

You unlock Erasmus by doing the Trickster’s Wake Campaign, which unlocks after completing Tracking Foreveil.

Backstory

Through his abilities to shapeshift and possess, Erasmus has taken on many forms.  One of the more recent was as a Scorpon Djinn.  In that guise Erasmus found great entertainment in luring unsuspecting mortals into the desert and torturing them with mirages and hallucinations, until they died of dehydration.

After crossing a sand sorceress, Erasmus found himself trapped, not only in the body of the Djinn, but also inside an ornate bottle within a cavern.  It was from this vessel that he whispered into the desert until he attracted the attentions of Jal – a young man and inhabitant of the deep deserts who was out gathering healing nectar from local cacti.

Backstory

The backstory for the nature dragon ancient Viscariais as follows.

Viscaria’s nature powers were originally based on regeneration and healing, and were not nearly as destructive and aggressive as her present incarnation.

The nature dragon lived her life within the treetop canopies of a lush and verdant jungle.  Viscaria’s home was as plentiful as it was beutiful and, being rather a reclusive beast, she rarely ventured outside its peaceful serenity.  Instead, she preferred to curl amongst the highest branches of the tallest trees, sunning her leaf-like scales and feasting on the occasional passing monkey or unwitting anaconda.
