The IVth Legion has retreated to the barren plateaus of Zadnor, their imperial flagship looming ominously on the horizon. What they hope to gain from their newfound base of operations remains to be seen, but the Resistance refuses to stand idle. As both sides are pushed to their limit, who will emerge the victor as the battle for Bozja reaches its bloody climax?
— In-game description
This is an instanced area that up to 72 players can explore simultaneously, and is the second major battlefield of two in the Save the Queen: Blades of Gunnhildr storyline. Like the Bozjan Southern Front, Zadnor is a instanced encounter wherein players assist the Bozjan Resistance in their continued effort to reclaim their homeland from the IVth Imperial Legion.
- Quest: A New Playing Field
- Level: Disciple of War or Magic level 80
- Starting NPC: Marsak in Gangos (X:6.4 Y:5.7)
- Prerequisite: Players must first complete the main story quest Futures Rewritten and have completed the quest Fit for a Queen.
All duty-specific mechanics (e.g., forming parties, level sync) are identical to those of the Bozjan Southern Front. For more information, see that page.
Mettle is obtained in much greater quantities in this duty than in the Bozjan Southern Front or Delubrum Reginae, making this the ideal location to farm mettle. However, the other Save the Queen duties are sources of useful Lost Actions and other rewards that are not found in Zadnor.
Advancement - Mettle and Resistance Rank
Mettle and Resistance rank are similar in concept to experience and leveling, respectively. Mettle is earned by completing skirmishes and critical engagements, and on reaching a certain amounts of mettle, you will be able to increase your resistance rank by talking to the commander. Increasing your Resistance Rank is needed to progress within the front, and unlocks additional features.
Features unlocked by Resistance Rank
|Rank||Mettle Required||New Features / Content Unlocked|
|16||1,124,000||Resolve Unshaken, can appraise Forgotten Fragment of History, Forgotten Fragment of Rage, Forgotten Fragment of Ferocity|
|18||2,790,000||Where Eagles Roost, Access to The Western Plateau (Second Area), can appraise Forgotten Fragment of Moonlight, Forgotten Fragment of Hope, Forgotten Fragment of Artistry|
|22||11,471,000||In Their Shadow, Access to The Northern Plateau (Third Area), can appraise Forgotten Fragment of Desperation, Forgotten Fragment of Tenacity, Forgotten Fragment of Inspiration|
|25||25,870,000||March of the Bloody Queen, Access to The Dalriada, can appraise Forgotten Fragment of Heroism, Forgotten Fragment of Cunning, Forgotten Fragment of Revelation|
Players who have reached the maximum Resistance rank can receive honors to permanently increase their strength when undertaking duties in Save the Queen areas.
After amassing sufficient mettle, players can speak with the Resistance councilor to receive proofs of mettle in exchange for all of their stored mettle. Approximately 8 million mettle is required to obtain one proof of mettle. These may then be exchanged for three varieties of Resistance honors: Suns of Fortitude, Suns of Valor, or Suns of Succor. The number of proofs of mettle required to exchange for each Sun starts at one and increases by one every two of that Sun obtained, up to a maximum of five proofs of mettle needed.
The number of proofs in your possession can be confirmed at any time via the HUD.
- Ray of Fortitude - Increases maximum HP.
- Ray of Valor - Increases damage dealt.
- Ray of Succor - Increases healing potency.
The more of these honors in your possession (up to the cap of 10 each), the greater their effect. The number and types of each Sun in possession will be displayed as permanent buffs that are not lost on death. These effects are only active in Save the Queen duties.
Obtaining 10 of each Sun will complete the Suns of Bozja achievement, which unlocks "The Emblazoned" title.
The Dalriada is a special engagement that takes place on a separate map and serves as the "finale" to Zadnor. Available after reaching Resistance Rank 25 and completing the prerequisite quests, it is a raid dungeon that allows up to a maximum of 48 players, and is accessed in the same way as Castrum Lacus Litore is in the Bozjan Southern Front. When it pops, click the Register button in the Resistance Recruitment list, and if you are selected, click Commence.
