What is a Fortress Siege?
Fortress Siege is a game event held every Friday 9:30pm server time where 2 clans battle out to conquer a fortress. Currently there are 20 fortresses in Southeast Asia servers each providing their own global buff effects, conquer buff, and daily rewards for 7 days to the Clan who controls(owns) it. A clan can only conquer 1 fortress in the given week, allowing other clans on a beginner-mid tier level to also participate and conquer lesser field fortresses.
Clans Lvl.4 or higher can participate in Fortress Sieges. The bid to participate in Fortress Sieges occurs every Thursday between 12am and 9pm. Clans can bid one minute before a bid ends to extend it by 3 minutes. Clans can continue to extend bids 10 times until 9:30pm.
*Note: Only the Clan Leader and Elder can bid in the Fortress Siege.

Fortress Sieges are 30 minutes long and begin at 9:30pm server time. Players can enter starting at 9:20pm to prepare and strategize for the battle.
The game is decided after the clan leader successfully imprints the opponent’s Holy Artifact. If neither clan imprints their opponent’s Holy Artifact within 30 minutes, then the match is considered a draw and the fortress remains unoccupied regardless of whether a clan conquers it.

Why is Fortress Siege important?
As shown above, conquering a fortress gives out awesome buffs. They are a huge addition on top of your current stats and boost your progression for the week. Conquering a Grade A fortress already gives you a +2.5% Spd and Atk Spd buff which is fantastic! As long as your clan continues to rule the fortress on the next siege, the buff will continuously take effect and the Conquer Reward increases.
There’s also an exclusive shop list available if your clan conquers the fortress.The higher grade of fortress you conquer, the more valuable the items are on the shop list. Items include Boss summoning stones, Blessed scrolls, Attribute stones, Varnish, Essence, Soul Crystal, Clan Cloak and Emblem Dye.
What’s great with this feature is regardless of the outcome, players who participate in a Fortress Siege get Adena, Exp., and Proof of Blood. Not so bad for a compensation, right?

What is a Fortress?
Fortresses are clan hall-like structures that 2 clans fight each other to gain possession of. Clans that own fortresses can participate in fortress sieges without bidding. If a fortress has no owner, 2 clans are selected to compete through public bidding.
Wonder where your Clan donations go, particularly Adena? Some of it are used to bid so your clan can participate on Fortress Sieges.
Steps to Bid on Fortress Siege
① Select a region from among Talking Island, Gludio, Dion, and Giran.
② Check the remaining bid time.
③ Select a fortress to bid on.
④ Review the selected fortress’s details, fortress owner, and Fortress Siege reward buff.
⑤ Look at the fortress’s interior.
⑥ Check out the selected fortress’s conquering clan and history.
⑦ Check out the clans that have requested to participate in the Fortress Siege for the selected fortress.
⑧ Tap the “Bid” button to open a pop-up window displaying the bid amounts.
The highest clan bidder by the end of the bidding time will get to participate in the Fortress Siege against the current fortress owner.
※ If a clan bids for multiple fortresses simultaneously, there is a fee of 5% of the bid amount.
※ Clans can only bid with amounts higher than the previous high amount.
※ Clans can’t withdraw a bid, but they are refunded their bid amount if their bid is unsuccessful.
※ Additional bids on existing fortresses are made with Clan Adena.
※ If there are no bids, your clan still needs to enter the Fortress Siege and imprint the Opponent’s Artifact in order to win.
