Stonemist Castle

Stonemist Castle is located in the center of the Eternal Battlegrounds. It provides 35 points towards a world's war score every 15 minutes, greater than a regular keep which produces only 25. It is the biggest structure in World versus World and placed in a very good strategic position on the main map. As such, it is a high-value target usually well defended by players and is much harder to take than a regular keep.
