Warlords is a competitive minigame on the Hypixel server inspired by World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor.
Capture The Flag Edit
In Capture the Flag you are required to steal the opposing team's flag and bring it back to your base, capturing it. You cannot capture the opponents flag if they have stolen yours. Keep your flag safe at all costs! Overtime, players who have the flag (flag carriers) will get a damage boost of 10% This will increase overtime as well (20%, 30%). If you successfully capture the opposing team's flag, you will gain +250 points for your team. You can gain points by killing players (+5) as well. Gain 1000 points for your team to win the game!
- 1 kill = 5 points
- Flag capture = 250 points
- 1st team with 1000 points wins
TIP: When rushing for the flag, make sure to collect the Speed boost because if you don't you will die instantly. When you have the flag, you will become a major target for the enemy team. Also remember to work AS A TEAM. Allocate people to defend and attack. 5 defending and 7 attacking is a combo, but always remember to work as a team and stay together. Communication is vital.
- CTF Mini - 12v12
- CTF Mega - 16v16
In Domination, you are required capture/dominate the 5 control points that are located around the battlefield.
- Point capture = 1*2^(<points captured> - 1) points per second
- 1st team with 2000 points wins
The current control points are as follows:
Keep control point is 'neutral' at the start of the game. You team needs to 'assault' each control point. After standing on a control point for a few seconds, the game will broadcast control point has been assaulted by your team. After 40 seconds it will be captured. Each control point you capture adds to your score multiplier per second. You don't gain any points for killing players. Gain a score of 2000 points and your team wins!
TIP: Make sure to memorize the map and look for the control point beacons. Always remember to work as a team and communicate. Have someone defending you control points at all times so you can protect it for sometime and alert your team to assist you.
Team Deathmatch Edit
In Team Death Match, your aim is to gain as many points as you can for your team by killed players of the opposite team. Reach 1000 points and you win the game!
- 1 kill = 15 points
- 1st team with 1000 points wins

- Low Quality - Heavily reduces the amount of particles you will see.
Hotkey Mode Edit
New hotkey mode allows you to instantly activate your skills the moment you press the hotkey without having to right-click and then switch back to your primary weapon/skill. It's recommended to rebind Mount button (hotbar slot 8) to something else such as Z for the best experience.
Classic hotkey mode won't change anything.
Repairing Weapons Edit
Repairing Weapons allows you to repair any broken weapons you get for winning games/quests, when clicked. Cost is 10 coins for each Broken Weapon. Repaired weapons are totally random. Better rarity means more different and better stats.

- Epic: 2%, 3 stats + skill bonus
- Legendary: 0.2%, 4 stats + skill bonus
Crafting, Forging, Rerolling and Salvaging Edit
Salvage the weapons you don't want anymore in order to get crafting materials. Use the Magic Dust and Void Shards you gathered to craft weapons for your currently selected class specialization or to upgrade your equipped weapon.
|MD = Magic Dust, VS = Void Shard||Common||Rare||Epic||Legendary|
|Salvaging||1-2 MD||3-5 MD or1 VS (5%)||3-5 VS||30-40 VS|
|Crafting||-||25 MD||250 MD
|Forging||-||-||100 MD then 200 MD||100 VS then 150 VS then 250 VS then 300 VS|
|Stats Reroll||1 MD||5 MD||50 MD||10 VS|
Epic and legendary weapons can be forged to make their stats better. Epic weapons can be upgraded once, legendary weapons twice. Crafted weapons have twice more slots than repaired ones.
TIP: It is highly recommended that you craft new weapons and upgrade them for better stats. An easy way to get lots of Magic Dust and Void Shards is to complete the Weekly Quest: Dedication, which will give you 200 Magic Dust and 15 Void Shards (read above).

Tips & Tricks Edit
Power-Ups spawn throughout the battlefield, mostly in buildings. Currently there are 3 types of Power-Ups:
- Speed Power-Up: Increases the player's speed by 40% for 10 seconds.
- Damage Power-Up: Increases the player's damage by 30% for 30 seconds
- Healing Power-Up: Heals the player at a rate of 10% per second, lasting for 10 seconds. Will be cancelled if you take damage.
The main trick with using mounts is to use them only when necessary. Keep in mind that the 15s cooldown only starts when you dismount the horse. Also it is better to not mount when close to a group of enemies, since you automatically dismount if taking any damage. Note: You also dismount from using ANY skills, weather it be your sword skill (Right-Click), or a class skill (Seismic Wave).
TIP: Always jump, hold your sprint key, and use the mount... this will allow you to mount and automatically start sprinting on the horse, not breaking your sprint.
A great way to deal high damage and power through groups is to use certain skills in combination. (I will mainly give tips on Warrior since it is my primary class.) Example: (Warrior) If you see a group of enemies first use your Berserk, giving you a damage bonus however taking 10% more damage, then use Bloodlust, healing 50% of the damage you deal for 12s. Then use your Seismic Wave and your Ground Slam when you are low on health and tadah you will be healed! Also dealing extra damage too. The best combo is [DMG Power up + Bloodlust + Berserk] = 55% Extra damage + 50% Heal, it's amazing!
The Art of strafing is useful in almost any PVP game out there. It's the same in Warlords. For those of you who do not know, strafing is moving in circular motions around the enemy making it harder for them to hit you. It doesn't work AS well in Warlords since you can use your Weapon Ability on players within 1 block behind you... So keep this in mind, just strafe at a distance...
Focus on 1 class Edit
This is more common sense. Anyone who wants to be really good, or get a high level, focuses one class. Example: I have Level 5 PAL, Level 2 Mage, and Level 52 Warrior. Focusing a class will not only allow you to gain higher levels faster, but it will let you get comfortable with that type of play.
Lots of people don't realize how much defending can get you. Some of my best games where I went 30 kills 15 Assists and 0 deaths were from defending. Sure it isn't as action packed, but you will often gain lots of coins and little deaths...since there aren't many defending. (Unless the other team either leaves or doesn't know how to play, defending is very helpful.)
I would make sure you are aware of every ability a class has (or the general knowledge of it) this will allow you to prepare to fight against one. Like when you see a Mage set down their teleport skill, just go over to the cloud and start swinging, they'll teleport back within 6 seconds.
This is pretty simple. Basically know what your skill does when you use it also consider how much energy you have. Example: Warrior's Seismic Wave does no damage if you cast it while looking at the ground. However, if you cast it while looking at an enemy (generally 5-6 blocks away) it will harm them. Or if you are trying to use hammer of light on the ground, look down instead of throwing it in the wrong place. Note: Also Ground Slam you do not need to aim! It will damage anyone in the radius, I would use it for running away since it knocks people back!
Common sense...you can get 12.5k daily and 13 Broken weapons (+XP and Credits) per day just for winning a game, and getting 15 of either kills or assists...Some people may not see the point, but when you get to higher levels that 12.5k per day is really nice. And if you do the weekly quest it gives you 7.5k and is extremely helpful if you do it in the same time as the dailys.
The best way to farm wins is playing CTF Mini. The games are usually short so you can rack up those wins. A good way to farm coins is Domination. This is due to the mass amount of people and how the games normally last longer. You get the same amount of coins for a kill as you do an assist! Even though dominate is long, you can get a heck lot of coins if you play it right, like healing a lot with the aquamancer or doing consencrate and hammer of light for protector and much more.
