About Zealot Invasion/War of Dominion

For new and existing players, the world of Pandora Saga expands with the all new Zealot Invasion and War of Dominion chapters.  The epic two-part content expansion begins with a 100-player raid and concludes with a massive 200 combatant war!  In the Zealot Invasion, all three nations compete to destroy the most Zealots within a set time limit. The two top nations move on to the War of Dominion, meaning one nation misses out each week. Each nation gets an opportunity to be a Defending nation every three weeks. Winning nations get access to a new map, including never-before-seen monsters and materials for the game's Crafting System.
