*When your participating guild is confirmed, you will be able to use the Dominion Rush-exclusive chat.

*You must sign up to join as a mercenary during the specified period in order to take part in that Dominion Rush.

  • As a mercenary, you will get the Participation Reward if you lose and Victory Rewards and distribution chances if you win.
  • If you don’t end up participating in the Dominion Rush despite having signed up as a mercenary, you will be unable to sign up as a mercenary for 1 week.

*The penalty will only be applied if the guild that recruited you won their bid. If the guild was lost their bid, then the penalty won’t be applied.

*The previously sanctioned penalty period will remain the same even if the no-show penalty period changes afterwards.

  • Mercenaries can apply and join only during the mercenary recruitment period, and only up to 5 requests to join can be made.
  • If a guild approves the mercenary’s request, then all other requests to other guilds will be automatically declined.

  • When bidding for Dominion Rush begins, all pending mercenary requests to join a guild will be automatically rejected.

Dominion Rush Rewards

When the match ends, the results will appear and rewards will be given accordingly.

The guild captain will select each reward on the guild screen to distribute to their guild members.

However, after the match ends, those rewards must be distributed before the next bidding begins. Those rewards will be deleted if they’re not distributed before the beginning of the next Dominion Rush bidding and the mercenary recruitment period (Wednesday 12 AM).

*Guild members who did not participate in that Dominion Rush can also receive rewards, and distributed rewards will be sent to the character’s mailbox.

Rewards can be distributed equally, and the rules for equal distribution are as follows:

  • 1) Distributed in top-to-bottom order based on the selected Sort filter.
  • 2) The reward amount is distributed equally to all guild members.

*Any remaining amount after equal distribution will then be prioritized to the highest-ranking player based on the order sorted by the guild captain.

Being a big gaming fan, I believe that I have a lot to share with other gamers. I got my first official job in the game industry in 2005 and continue to develop there. It's a true blessing when your passion, hobby, and job combine into something one. My favorite console is the Nintendo Switch. I think you can all guess why. Because I just bought a Steam Deck. I love playing on PC, but my main love for me will always be Xbox. Anyway, it's complicated and simple at the same time. After all, I'm back in the days of the ZX Spectrum (1994)…
