The Altar of Doom in the center of the map can be communed with to obtain an orb. Only one orb exists at any given time. While a player holds the orb, score will be periodically given to their team and more team score is given if the orb is closer to the center of the map indicated by the yellow and green ring in the center around the alter.

  • Inside the green circle: 10 team score
  • Inside the yellow circle: 5 team score
  • Outside of the yellow circle: 2 team score

The player carrying the orb will be under the effect Impending Doom which grants +20% outgoing damage while also applying 3% stacking damage from his maximum health to the orb carrier every 2 seconds and increase it by another stack.

Players who die while carrying the orb cannot be resurrected. When a player holding the orb dies, the orb is returned to the altar in the center of the map.
