This Valentine’s Day, we dream of the untold story of the King and Queen of the Shattered Kingdom. Their unfortunate fates are known today, but is anything recorded of their courtly life at the height of the Kingdom, before Oryx the gladiator made his grab for power? The historians who unearthed the scrolls that told the tale of the Kingdom’s descent claim to have reason to speculate that life in the Court of the doomed Kingdom was a happy one and that the love the King and Queen had for each other may linger still… somewhere, in what remains untainted of their psyches. And, around this Festival of Love, the more romantic of these historians, mainly Knights and Paladins by trade, compose wistful poems and songs of what could’ve been. And of what remains.
The Story of Love Campaign is an early experiment towards an actual Battlepass, where the real thing will of course be longer, more varied, and have free and purchased progression. This small Campaign, this time, is mostly aimed towards cosmetics. Progression via gameplay in this one should be faster and easier than on the Oryxmas Campaigns.

For now, and in this dream dimension, the Shattered King is alone. We must believe that he will, however, find love despite all. And when he does, look for new life breathed into his animations – in particular, he will get an idle cycle.

At the same time, the Valentine’s Day Archer Set, the star of the upcoming speedrun competition, will return as always, this time in exchange for Heart Shards.
|Enchanting Archery||Heart Shard x35 x7||Heartstruck Bow + Return of Love||Once per account|
|Quivering with Love||Heart Shard x35 x7||Quiver of Dazing Love + Return of Love||Once per account|
|Enamored’s Habiliment||Heart Shard x35 x7||Cupid’s Garments + Return of Love||Once per account|

The Return of Love token is meant to compensate Campaign participants – its only functionality is to return the Campaign points used for the quests. Additionally, the Gardener will be back to drop Belladonna’s Garden, which will be one of the dungeons hosting chest events with a romantic flavour.
The Story of Love begins Tuesday, 8th of February at 12PM UTC and will last
forever until Monday, 21st, at 12 PM UTC.
What do you speculate about Court life in the pre-Shattered Kingdom?
