"Dominion" is a new battle system introduced in the Heroes of Abyssea add-on. In Dominion, players will lend their strength to the Resistance in an effort to subjugate the savage hordes and reclaim the lands of Abyssea - Altepa, Abyssea - Uleguerand, and Abyssea - Grauberg.
Success in battle will earn the player Dominion Notes, currency which can be redeemed for a plethora of rewards including Empyrean armor, augmented items, and seals for body or hand. The seals drop only once per game day, unlike in quests. Seals obtainable from Dominion ops can only be of the same type obtainable via quests of that specific zone (e.g., Mavi Seal: Hands cannot be obtained in Abyssea - Altepa Dominion ops due to fact that there is no quest to obtain the seal in this zone).
Hordes of savage fiends prowl the harsh borderlands of Abyssea, with the members of each ranging in strength from the ordinary rank and file, to multiple tiers of notorious monsters above them. Eliminate the grunts and peons, and more and more formidable foes belonging to the same group will be lured out of hiding. As you prevail over the enemy, the Resistance's sphere of influence in the given area will gradually expand to a maximum value of 100%, representing complete subjugation of the hordes.
Upon signing up for a Dominion Op, players will be briefed on their objective, target area, and difficulty level. Exterminate your prescribed quota of fiends, and report your triumph to a Dominion Sergeant. This will lead to an expanded sphere of influence over the corresponding horde, and earn you experience and other rewards for your efforts.
- Players level 74 or below will be subject to reduced experience point yield. You get full EXP at Level 75 and you lose 2% per level below 75. Example: a L70 character would receive only 90% the EXP a Level 75+ character would. The other benefits, Cruor and Dominion Notes do not get reduced. All characters get full bonuses.
- Completion of a Dominion Op may be reported to any Dominion Sergeant in the corresponding area.
- Progress review and cancellation may be conducted with any Dominion Sergeant in any of the three areas.
- Dominion Sergeants may be found at the following locations:
Abyssea - Altepa: (C-11 / G-8 / G-11)
Abyssea - Uleguerand (G-7 / J-5 / K-9)
Abyssea - Grauberg: (F-10 / G-12 / L-6)
