Castle Siege 9999X Server
What should I do for you to be in love with me?
I will do anything, even kill the enemy.
I'm sad that we only meet once a week.
Yet, I will do anything to keep the streak.
What is it with you that I get so obsessed?
For you, I fight and try to win this contest.
More than a hundred competitors, I weekly face.
Just to feel your amazing grace.
I won't have a chance if I do not focus.
Play with all my might and bring my Horus.
I will offer my mind, heart, and spirit.
My beloved castle siege, you are worth it.

What is the Defensive Team doing?
They protect the castle, preventing the attackers to take the switch (you probably heard “I will be a switcher” in your guild) and/or seal. At the beginning of the event, they are already inside the Castle, preparing to defend.
What is the Offensive Team doing?
They try to take on the switches so that the Main Guild Master of the Ally could seal. At the beginning of the event, they are in the Valley of Loren, the citadel area, where they are attacking the statues in order to gain access inside the castle.
What is the "Switch"?
The Switches are the two elements situated in the lower right and left corner of the Castle.

The seal is the action that the main Guild Master(GM) of the Ally takes in order to Register its official Seal, by clicking on the pedestal.

Important information for guild members
If you are a regular player and want to participate in Castle Siege, you should know this:
- Ice attacks lessen the movements of the Switchers and Sealers.
- All character can Switch and Seal. For The only impediment for sealing is that you’d have to be the main Guild Master of the Ally.
- Mounting a pet is FORBIDEN in Castle Siege. The only exception is for the elf. The elf CAN mount Fenrir, Dinorant and/or Uniria.
ELF(ME/HE): The elf can be a buffer for Damage and Defence but can also heal members while they are in combat with the enemy. Keep in mind that the Damage and Defence buff only last for 1 minute therefore it would be better for the party members to stay close in order to have buff all the time. The elves can ice enemies with ice arrow and also kill enemy attackers.
WIZZ(SM/GM): The wizz is very important for Soul Barrier, also known as MS. The MS lasts aprox. 7 min. If a player does not have MS and swell, he/she could die in just 1 hit, no matter what set is wearing, Uber or FO(Full Option). Wizzes can also ice the enemies with Ice Storm and also use Lightning Bolt to extract the Switchers and the Sealers from their places. Wizzes can be Switchers too, as well as attackers if they have enough damage to do it.
KNIGHTS(DK/BK/BM): Knights have the long lasting life potion that makes wonders, that’s called Greater Fortitude, or Swell. The Swell lasts for 5 minutes so the same thing is applied here: keep all the party members together. All players need swell in order for them to keep fighting while getting the switches or sealing. The main role of the Knights in Castle Siege is of a fighter. They need to get rid of the enemies.
LORDS(DL/LE): The Lords are mainly pretty good at sealing and grabbing the switches. They can also buff the party members with Crit and they use Stomp to disperse the enemy just like the Wizz is doing with the Lightning Bolt. They can also attack the enemies, besides buffing, stomping and sealing/switching. Also the Lords can summon party members. That is the only warp command that is allowed in Castle Siege. The DL can only warp if it’s not switching. The Critical Damage buff of a DL lasts for 55 minutes.
GLADIATOR(MG/DM): The Gladiators are the Kight’s best friend, as they kill the enemies together.
CS Party Tip: The party is the main element that keeps the Castle Siege armies together and in shape. Therefore, in order for the party to be successful, the party members should work together and move together. This way they will always benefit from the swell/buffs/MS/crit because you can’t use Buff Master's buffs in CS.
