Based on the NA server, Noctem Invicte aims to foster a reputation as one of the most honorable guilds in the game. According to founder Talious, the house is well on the way to achieving it’s aim, having helped to build a formidable coalition while keeping animosity to a minimum.
HOW DID YOU FIRST FIND OUT ABOUT CONQUEROR’S BLADE
I found Conqueror’s Blade by chance on a Facebook game ad. I am happy that I checked it out! Can not get enough of this game!
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO SET UP A HOUSE?
It is funny how sometimes things happen that you do not anticipate. Noctem Invicte just kind of happened. There was another house and it fell apart and suddenly, I found myself in a leadership role and establishing a new house with a great group of people.
WHAT MAKES YOUR HOUSE DIFFERENT?
Honestly, what makes our house so great is the diverse member base. We have a spectrum of player types, personalities, and backgrounds, despite any differences we really do feel like a family. We also have structure and something we will be implementing when we go live, a sort of command structure that ensures no player is neglected or forgotten and it will show each member is important. Honor, Virtus, Victoria!
WHAT HAS BEEN THE SECRET OF YOUR SUCCESS SO FAR?
We have been in two CBTs and we have ended up with territory in both: the first one we had six and in the second we had ten, thanks to our organization, clear goals and decisive attack strategies. We make sure every member knows the basic plan and received clear communication. We have many military-minded folks, and it shows. Shoot, Move, Communicate.
WHAT WILL BE NOCTEM INVICTE’S LEGACY IN YEARS TO COME?
We want to be a house with a good reputation, we want every member of the house and the alliance (Veni Vidi Vici) to love logging on and playing. Personally, I would love to have a reputation for keeping our word and being honorable. We would also like to be one of the best houses in the game, but then again, who doesn’t. With our strategy and support of each other, I am confident that we can do it.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE CLASS TO PLAY AS AND WHY?
My first love - I know it’s cheese - is the Musket. From the very first time, I loved playing it. It suits my playstyle and is easy to understand and play. My second favorite is the spear. I like to be the one clearing out the support troops and giving clear shots to generals on the battlefield.
WHAT ACTIVITIES DOES THE HOUSE REGULARLY ENGAGE IN?
The house does everything, we hunt and farm together, we raid, and every aspect of the game is something we want to explore and master.
WHO ARE YOUR MOST TRUSTED WARLORDS?
I have several that I rely on, every member that has a lord or above tag has earned that position and titles come with responsibilities and demands that I and every house member expect to be achieved. We have a system in which lords and above are responsible for several knights within the house, this gives us the ability to focus on a small number of members to make sure every member has the support they need.
Though special thanks to TopsyCretts, WorldClass, Sol, Svvadlin, Paladin, Warhalo, Ethan, and Ajora, without whom we would have never survived the first CBT, let alone the second. In the open beta I have relied heavily on my officer corps and my second-in-commands, Jona the Orange, Weak and Hiddenblade
IF SOMEONE WANTED TO JOIN NOCTEM INVICTE OR START A DIALOGUE, WHAT SHOULD THEY DO?
The easiest way is the direct one - simply reach out to us! If you would like to join, you can, but we do strive for a certain level of discipline and organization. If you want to trade, we are happy to help facilitate.
ARE THERE OTHER HOUSES THAT YOU ADMIRE OR THAT YOU CONSIDER TO BE NATURAL ALLIES?
Relationships have grown and several houses have proven themselves to be made up of awesome people. We are currently in an alliance with UndeadLords and LordsofDeath, but have positive dealings with many more houses.
Also, I have had great interactions with Homegrown, Varangian Guard, Order of Ash, and the Grand Order - all of which are trustworthy and friendly.
CONVERSELY, ARE THEY ARE ANY HOUSES THAT YOU'D CONSIDER MORTAL ENEMIES?
There are houses that dislike us, for sure. Mortal enemies though…? I would have to say, none. There will always be the gamer drama and the backtalking, but overall I think we have decent realtionships with most houses that we've come into contact with.
Many thanks to Talious for answering our questions. If you know of a house that is deserving of similar recognition that we should profile in the future article, please make your nomination via our Discord channel.
