Far to the west, upon an island long isolated from the rest of the World, two great empires vie for control of a powerful obelisk but without any clear victor.
The object of Soul Wars is to destroy your opponents' castle more times than they can destroy yours. The castles begin each battle with a healing rate of 200 hp per second, making them almost impossible to destroy. In order to reduce their healing rate, you will have to kill some of the enemy units to increase your kill count, which can only be done if your team controls the Soul Obelisk in the centre of the battlefield.
The battlefield is divided up into three main areas:
The Blue Team's Base
Players on the blue team will begin here. None of the locations in this area can be captured by the red team. Your base is composed of three main features: the castle itself, your team's camp where you can enter the battlefield, and an outpost.
The Red Team's Base
Players on the red team will begin here. None of the locations in this area can be captured by the blue team. Your base is composed of three main features: the castle itself, your team's camp where you can enter the battlefield, and an outpost.
The Main Battlefield
There are a number of locations here, the most important of which are the Soul Obelisk and the two graveyards. These can be captured by having a greater number of your own team within their bounds for a short period of time.
Killing the Castles
In order to kill your opponents' castle, you must first weaken it to enable as many of your team-mates to fight it as possible. As noted above, this is done by killing enemy units in the main battlefield to increase your kill count. The higher your kill count, the lower the healing rate will be.
You will always be able to enter the battlefield through the camp in your team's base. However, you can also enter via one of the graveyard entrances, providing your team controls that graveyard. If your team looses control of a graveyard you will no longer be able to use that entrance.
Because the two graveyards in the main battlefield can be captured, they are especially valuable resources for getting access to the battlefield, the Soul Obelisk and your opponents' base.
