With only 4 openings from the outside into the courtyard and two gang ramps from the Siege Machines onto the upper ramparts, this Castle is a FIGHT TO ENTER from Game On.

The Game will Start with the Defenders located within VALKEN TOWN and the Attackers starting from their Insertion at TATTOO CREW COMPOUND. Attackers must drive the Defenders completely out of VALKEN TOWN before they can proceed further out into the Realm to locate and secure the 10 Keys Needed to Open The Entryways into CASTLE ECLIPSE. THESE KEYS WILL BE HUNG UP IN PLAIN SIGHT AND WATCHED BY AN EMR REF! Until they accomplish this, the Attackers cannot go past the boundary of TATTOO CREW COMPOUND or VALKEN TOWN and can only Respawn at the Tattoo Crew Compound Insertion. The Defenders can Respawn From anywhere within CASTLE ECLIPSE until the Attackers control VALKEN TOWN.

After the Attackers Secure VALKEN TOWN, they can Respawn from either of the two designated Insertion Points located at Tattoo Crew Compound and beside the Rec. Center. The Defenders can continue to Respawn from anywhere within CASTLE ECLIPSE and at any Other Existing Key Site where the key is still hanging other than the one they were shot out at. The Attackers must then secure the 10 Large Keys Hung Up in Plain Sight and located throughout the Realm at the following locations: DEAD WATCH, HIGH GARDEN, TORRHEN, CASTLERY ROCK, EGO VILLAGE, FOXDEN, VALYRIA, BATTLEBORN, EYRIE, and CASTLE BLACK and turn them in at the Bone Taverne to Open the Four Ground Entrances and the two Upper Gang Ramps of Castle Eclipse before entering CASTLE ECLIPSE.

Once the Attackers Open the Entrances and Ramps, the Defenders can only Respawn from their Dead Zone at the Corner of Walls 3 & 4 into the Castle Itself.
