Circle Paths

The past is certain, the future obscure. Those who walk the Path of War understand this, for they have been charged with the defense of the Kaldorei nation. Walking this path is to hold the value of another’s life in your hands, to know when it is necessary to strike or defend. Preparation is imperative, and the students of war focus on perfecting their occupation to ensure they are never unprepared. Regular exercise of both the mind and body is something to be expected.

Members of this path defend the land, life, and the Kaldorei, never turning to conquest unless it is essential. More often than not adept students of war join the Sentinel Army or become domestic peacekeepers.

Any class can follow the Path of War, though more commonly warriors, hunters, rogues, priests, and monks make up the majority.

We fight in the name of Elune - that Her vision may come to pass. We go to war, so that She need not.


Your duty to war is to uphold these laws...

 

Law of the Sentinel
We are children of the stars. Your first and foremost goal is the protection of the Kaldorei and our allies.

Law of the Night Warrior
Fulfill Her will. Seek to cleanse Kalimdor of Her enemies, for they are an affront to all that is sacred.

Law of Peace
The Goddess is peaceful but not pacifist. Strive for peace in the pursuit of Her will and resort to violence only when necessary.

"War is the face of the Goddess, we must prepare in Her name..." - Warden of War


Thero'thoral (+2)
The student of warfare. Choosing this path gives you a one-time (+2) bonus for D20 events, which increases as you earn seals on the path. As a novice of the quarter, you will learn to grow with assistance from others and by your own determination. This title is earned after choosing to follow the Path of War and is maintained through attaining your first path seal.

Sentinel (+4)
A rank bestowed upon those who valiantly pursue Her will and protect Her children. This title is earned after attaining 2 seals in the Path of War.

Lieutenant (+6)
Trained for mounted combat. These sentinels have received special military training and often ride into battle on their animal companions, either a saber or hippogryph. This title is earned after attaining 3 seals in the Path of War.

Captain (+8)
Experienced and capable leaders. These sentinels have received advanced leadership training and help the Warden of War lead the sentinels of the circle to battle. This title is earned after attaining 4 seals in the Path of War. When a member completes the final stage in their Path Task Tree they earn an in-character title during a Council Glade ceremony and become veterans of that path.

Warden
The experienced master. There is only one Warden of War in the Circle at any time. Responsible for overseeing the path and assigning various tasks affiliated with their path. This title is earned by an exemplary member of Path of War, who has gone above and beyond to aid the Circle and demonstrates a strong sense of leadership and devotion to others. The Warden is specifically chosen to lead the path. While it is preferred that the individual has completed their path, it is possible to become Warden if a minimum of two seals have been earned.


These ranks are separate from the basic Circle ranks. To earn rank here you must complete various tasks associated with the given path to earn seals. The first seal earned marks a character as a student of the path. Up to four seals can be earned to reach rank 4 in a path. All Elders and Wardens must have earned up to Rank 4 in their path, Walking the Path, and earn their title from completing the final task in their path.

Path of War Seals

Here are all four seals affiliated with the Path of War Task Tree, which can be viewed below. Hovering over the icons in the Path Tree will display tasks associated with the Path of War. To earn a Seal three tasks in a linked column must be completed, these tasks may be completed in any order of your choosing, with the exception of the final stage which is listed independently at the bottom of the tree. You can write an in-character forum post to receive credit for tasks that require written reports here.

Note: Remember to send in-game mail, a PM, or a ping over Discord to let your Path leader know when you plan to complete a task so they can track your progress!
