Battle of Blood is a recurring event that pits players against each other in a strategic card-based battle. The players are given a hand of 10 random hero cards, half of which they may place onto the battlefield.

The first round, players may choose 2 of the hero cards to place onto the battlefield, the next round another 2, and then the final round just 1. Once 5 of these hero cards have been placed on both sides, a battle will commence between the player and their opponent.


The Battle of Blood is a Mauler event with a considerably long history.
The tough and resilient ancestors of the Maulers had to find a place to settle in the Scorched Expanse after long, arduous migrations. The natural environment of the desert was perfect for honing their senses and steeling them to the elements. Through this, they learned how to abide by survival of the fittest.
They promote and advocate those who are strong, and use of force. It was here that the origins of the event took root, borne of the bloodshed and primeval culture. In ancient arena battles, the old and frail fall, and the strong and victorious are surrounded by rapturous cheers.
In recent times, with the Maulers in greater contact with other peoples, this historical practice born from their culture has expanded beyond their barbaric borders and become a part of wider cultural practice throughout Esperia.
