The Rites of Spring Event

Posted by John Thornhill | 2016 Mar 25 09:48 -0400 GMT
Springtime is here again, and with the warmth and renewed bloom of the landscape an ancient menace returns!

The deceptively cuddly Harbinger of Spring has found its way onto Ellan Vannin. The Kings of the Realms have placed a bounty on this beast for any who wish to drive the menace out of their lands and to collect the coveted Gem of the Harbinger!

The Rites of Spring event will continue through Monday, April 4th.
 

St. Patrick's Day Event

Posted by John Thornhill | 2016 Mar 16 23:29 -0400 GMT
Are you feeling lucky?

In celebration of St. Patrick's Day and running from now until Monday, March 21st, a brand new random-object-generated (ROG) reward awaits those that can complete the first annual 'Leprechaun Treasure' quest. One quest completion per character! 

To get the quest, level 50s should pay the following poor souls a consoling visit:

Edmund in Cotswold's tavern
Bjorne in Mularn's beer hall
Silvadren in Mag Mell's pub


 
  • As part of the quest, players will be shapeshifted into a realm-specific "leprechaun" but have ALL of their stats debuffed by 75%.
  • But fear not, leprechauns may be weak but they are also nigh impossible to catch: shapeshifted players will also have an unbreakable CC-immunity and speed buff for the duration of the shapeshift.  
  • Oh, and we hear the real leprechauns love hiding their treasure on the new RvR zone of Ellan Vannin. Enjoy some zany RvR through the weekend!
  • The ROG reward is a choice between a ring or a bracer similar to the Valentine's Day event with some slight differences. These ROGs will only allow up to 5 slots for stats but will also have 1 of 6 possible /uses.

      
 

For players of all level ranges, there are three pesky little tricksters who are hoping you're not too lucky! A 'charming' reward will be bestowed upon those who have the cunning to out-wit:

Killaghe in Albion
Daighu in Midgard
Iollarme in Hibernia

The "Luck of a Leprechaun" quest can be obtained from the following:

Sir Prescott in Cotswold
Hrolf in Mularn
Epona in Mag Mell

Once again, the event will run until Monday, March 21st.

A happy and safe St. Patrick's Day to one and all, and we'll see you in the Frontiers!
