The Fire-Watcher's Oath is an alternate version of the that allows players to collect Bloody Coins. This item has the perk of being usable anywhere (including Battlegrounds), as well as not taking 90% of the player's health on use. It originally had an approximate 10% chance of granting a Bloody Coin and a long cooldown. It has since then been significantly buffed, to encourage players to obtain Bloody Coins from battlegrounds.
For tactics and strategy, see the Censer of Eternal Agony article.
- Players that use the item will become PvP flagged.
- Unlike the , it does not require 90% of the player's health to gain the buff.
- Killing players during the duration of the buff will reward 1 for each killing blow.
- The buff has a 10 minute duration.
- Dying will remove the buff.
- Removing the buff without death will not unflag the player.
- In order to remove the PvP flag, travel to a non-PvP area, then type /pvp to fully activate the flag and type it again to cancel it, then wait five minutes for the flag to deactivate.
- The buff will transform the user in a red glowing Ordon Fire-Watcher.
- Being on a mount, while the buff is active, will also give the mount the red visual effect.
