Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Nov 25 16:00 -0500 GMT
Update: Pendragon is now up, check out the 1.119 Notes here or by clicking the image below!

The Pendragon server will be coming down today, Wednesday 11/25/15, at 2PM EST / 7PM GMT for patch 1.119a!

Important Note:
  • We highly suggest separating out your normal game directory from your Pendragon game directory *before* patching and testing on Pendragon.
    • If you do not do this, you *will* experience issues when patching back to live.
      • To force the live client to fix these issues, you will need to delete the mft.myp in your game's directory and run the patcher again.

For those interested in testing on Pendragon, follow the character copy process here!
