PvP in Salt and Sacrifice
Players who wish to participate in PvP will be able to create the appearance, class, and past crime of a Marked Inquisitor, you will embark on your cursed hunt, but it makes no sense to suffer alone. You can join a variety of factions for multiplayer battles and online interactions.
Two factions highlighted in the trailer are the Alliance of the Shroud, with an emphasis on pure PvP combat, and Blue Heart Runners, a group of esoteric smuggler PvE invaders who wreak havoc on a host’s realm.
Players can invite other players to temporarily invade their kingdom by consuming the shard without guilt, this deactivates the spell mark for a period of time. Meanwhile, other wealth-seeking and blood-seeking players can enter. There will be some balance, however, as Oathbound Watchers will be drawn into the world threatened by invaders (those who wear the Oathbound Watcher Amulet), to aid and protect the host. The Sheriff Inquisitors are summoned to the Police Realms tainted by Blueheart Runners.
Those who join the Blueheart Runners a PvPvE faction, your role is to collect the ashes of the Haze Burnt which are zombie-like creatures that have fallen under the curse of spells. Collecting the ashes will summon Haze Wraiths, “creatures of pure magical corruption” who seek to hunt down your pursuers. Collecting enough ash will give you the upper hand, weaken your pursuers, and allow you to hunt them down with an advantage.
Summoning more allies means more chances of invasion. Two-on-two PvP offers challenging and thrilling gameplay experiences, as Inquisitors have a number of features at their disposal, including melee move sets, runic arts, ranged weapons, and consumable items.
For those who are not interested in PvP, they can avoid these kinds of threats from otherworldly invaders by not summoning an ally. If you want to cooperate with a friend and explore together, you can use a password system to allow those you want to join your world.
