5v5 Tournament Registration Closed

Posted by Community | 2017 Aug 23 16:49 -0400 GMT

Registration for this year's 5v5 Tournament is now closed! The excitement is immense :)

We would ask those participating to please arrive on time and be ready to go (make your guilds beforehand!) around the porter's area in Camelot at 1PM EST (6PM GMT/7PM CET).

In addition to the awesome fights we have to look forward to, we will also be giving away some spot prizes during the event! Shileah will be running contests for patterns and 1 month DAoC Timecodes for those joining the fun in Twitch chat, and our very chatty commentators will be awarding patterns to players for the following categories:

  • Best Dressed through the use of patterns (free Mithril is available on all characters on Pendragon)
  • Tournament MVP
  • MVP outside of the top 3 teams (finalists, semi-finalists, and 3rd placed teams)
  • Groups Stage MVP (per group category, not team)
  • Most Memorable Play

Please note: Pendragon is down tomorrow for a patch (details here), but will be set as FFA ruleset when it returns, please wait until Pendragon is back online to copy over any toons from live. So get ready to make your guilds, copy your toons, and work your fashion magic for Saturday! #5v5hype

Full tournament details can be found here. The tournament will be streamed in full on our official Twitch channel, and groups randomised Friday evening. If you have a team but it does not appear on the fixture list, please contact Beibhinn asap via Discord or Postcount.

Excited for what Saturday brings!! See you there :)

Test Sever Downtime - Pendragon Patch 1.123C

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Aug 23 12:20 -0400 GMT
Pendragon is open for testing! Its server ruleset has been changed to FFA/PVP. 

The Pendragon test server will be coming down tomorrow, August 24th, at 2:00 PM EST / 7:00 PM GMT to deliver patch 1.123C to Pendragon!

Click the button below for the full notes!

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!

RvR Buggane's Obelisk and Daily Quest Hot Fix

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Jul 21 15:52 -0400 GMT
We're excited to announce the following changes!

Buggane's Obelisk
  • Buggane's Obelisk will now rotate its locations in conjunction with the rotating daily bonus quest's location.
    • This means if the daily bonus quest from the General is located in Albion's Brough Ruins (Alb Maze) for the day, Buggane's Obelisk will spawn there as well.
      • This does mean that if the obelisk is up in 1 location, it is down in all other locations.
      • Ellan Vannin will no longer have the obelisk up unless the daily rotating quest is also in Ellan Vannin.
    • When the quest changes at 12:01 EST each night, Buggane's Obelisk location will change too!
    • Speak with General Kogis, General Bruki, or General Vegda in each realm's relic town and they will also tell you where Buggane's is located (along with aligning with their rotating quest that day).
      • Realm ownership of Buggane's Obelisk will still show in the /realm window regardless of where Buggane's Obelisk is currently located.
  • Buggane's Obelisk once again awards a bonus to realm points in addition to its bonus to bounty points and coin earned.
    • Its bonus amounts still scale as follows based on realm rank:
      • Realm Rank 1L1 - 3L9: 75% bonus to RP/BP/Coin
      • Realm Rank 4L0 - 5L9: 50% bonus to RP/BP/Coin
      • Realm Rank 6L0 - 7L9: 25% bonus to RP/BP/Coin
      • Realm Rank 8L0+: 15% bonus to RP/BP/Coin
    • Its duration is still 2 hours and lasts through death and logout; however, it no longer lasts after zoning out of the frontiers.
  • Siege weapons are not allowed within 850 units of the obelisk.
Daily Quests
  • The quest [Daily] The Solo Road has had its kill requirements reduced from 20 to 10. Its reward remains unchanged.
    • We recommend visiting the General in each realm's relic town to get the new version of this quest if you have more than 10 kills remaining on it currently.
    • All other daily quests remain unchanged.
