Stonemist Castle

Stonemist Castle is located in the center of the Eternal Battlegrounds. It provides 12 points towards a world's war score every 5 minutes, greater than a regular keep which produces only 8. It is the largest objective 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.
