About Labyrinth of the Minotaur
The ancient race of Minotaur has returned to Camelot, and they seek the help
of the mightiest warriors from the three warring Realms. Powerful Minotaur
Relics, long hidden and sealed away, have been unearthed, and their
corrupting influence now threatens the world.
To combat this growing evil, Labyrinth of the Minotaur introduces the first
new playable race to the Realms in two years - the Minotaur. Half man, half
bull, the Minotaur is the first race available to all three Realms. The
introduction of this new race will allow even the most seasoned players to
experience the world of Camelot from an entirely new perspective.
In return for aiding their tribes, the Minotaur emissaries have agreed to
share the secret of a new player class, the Mauler. With the ability to
channel the elemental powers of the earth, the Mauler brings a new set of
skills and abilities to the game for a fresh take on Player vs. Environment
(PvE) quests and Realm vs. Realm (RvR) combat. In addition, the emissaries
of the Minotaur can help any Champion of the Realms expand their powers and
abilities with five new Champion Levels.
In their search for the Minotaur Relics, players will journey deep beneath
the Frontiers to explore the vast Labyrinth, the largest single dungeon in
all of Camelot. This dungeon contains exciting new PvE quests, new
encounters, and challenging new areas for RvR combat. The Labyrinth is
filled with great evil, but even greater treasures, including new Mythirian
items, which can be found by the bravest of adventurers. Players who recover
one of the Minotaur relics may use the item, but become targets to be hunted
by the other Realms. This new RvR game play will bring Camelot's popular
relic raid experience to small groups on a daily basis.
