Order Vs. Rebellion

28 February 2023

Heroes of Arkesia,

Fight for more than just glory when Tulubik Battlefield launches this March. Select your Faction, earn rewards, and determine the fate of Rowen in 96-player (48 v 48) Realm versus Realm matches. It’s time to prepare for war. Will you maintain order or unleash rebellion?

Pick a Faction

Sylmael Crystals once made Rowen a prosperous continent. Now, that same precious resource only brings pandemonium. The war-torn land is divided into two conflicting Factions — Preigelli and Liebertane. The machine-loving mercenaries of Preigelli fight for a society with strict rules, while the pirates and mages of Liebertane pursue a lawless land. Rowen may have temporarily been forgotten from Arkesia’s history, but one of these Factions will always be remembered as the victor at Tulubik Battlefield.

Earn Faction XP & Rewards

Reach item Level 1445 for the chance to start Rowen’s world quest and pick your side. Once you’ve completed the “Cataclysmic Eliyabeck” world quest, you will join the fight for your Faction. Welcome to the seemingly endless stage of strife.

Earn Faction XP through activities like co-op quests, plus taking out opposing Faction’s members, to progress through 15 Faction Ranks for Sylmael Crystals which can be exchanged for valuable rewards like honing materials, card packs, mounts, skins, and more. From Rank 10 on, your XP earned throughout a week (starting at 6 AM local time on maintenance day) will be recorded. Changing Factions after Rank 11 will result in an XP penalty and possibly a lower Rank.

Faction Rank is also reflected in player skins throughout Rowen. Support a side, strive for higher Ranks, and wear your decorated Faction skins with pride.

Determine the Fate of Rowen in Tulubik Battlefield

Capture bases and defeat foes to prove your Faction’s supremacy in 96-player (48 v 48) Realm versus Realm matches. Each base nets your Faction Magick over time. The more bases you conquer, the faster your side’s Magick will increase. Harness more Magick than the opposing Faction to take total control of the battlefield and win.

You can also increase your own contribution level to tip the scales through individual actions like taking down opponents, capturing bases, and even materializing a powerful spirit knight to support your side on the field. How will you make a difference?

After the final sliver of Magick is obtained and the battle has been decided, you’ll earn rewards such as Faction XP and Sylmael Crystals based on your performance.


Both Factions will only engage in war during certain times of the week, so keep an eye out for in-game announcements.
