Siege Ammunition Hot Fix

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 May 14 19:28 -0400 GMT
Notes below!

  • Speciality siege ammunition can now only be loaded and fired into level-appropriate siege engines.
    • These changes affect all siege weapon types that require ammunition: Trebuchet, Catapult, Ballista, and Palintone
    • For example, flaring greek fire siege ammunition can no longer be fired by sturdy field catapults (Thidranki) or strong field catapults (Braemar) but can be fired by tough field catapults (Wilton) and better; while the igniting greek fire siege ammunition is now the highest level greek fire that can be fired by sturdy field catapults.
    • Information-delves for each specialty siege ammunitions have been updated accordingly.
    • This fix is aimed at reducing the damage from siege in battleground zones to level-appropriate values.

The traveling merchants have been... err, traveling for too long but have finally returned to the realms to share their wares... for a price.

Several items have had their prices reduced and you'll find never-before-sold loot including the Frozen Medal of Honor, Gem of the Harbinger, and some of the new Darkness Falls items!

The Merchants have set up shop in their usual areas, so be sure to pay them a visit  and stock up before they take their leave a fortnight from now!

In Midgard: Just outside of Svasud Faste in the Vale of Mularn
In Hibernia: Just outside of Druim Ligen in Connacht

Live Server Downtime - Bug Fix

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Apr 10 16:21 -0400 GMT

UPDATE 9:55 AM EST / 2:55 GMT: All Live servers are online!

Greetings all,

All Live Servers will be coming down this Friday, April 10, at 5:45 AM EST / 10:45 AM GMT. Servers should be back online by Friday, 10 AM EST.

A bug with certain Two-Hand and Ranged-slot weapons was introduced with 1.117E: Any instrument, bow, or 2-handed weapon needed for certain abilities is unusable immediately after logging in or zoning. We will have a permanent fix for this once the servers are back online Friday morning.

When first logging in after the servers come back online:
If you are still receiving a message that an ability or weapon cannot be used because you need to equip the weapon first (even if it is already showing as equipped), please remove and re-equip that weapon. Once done once, you should no longer see this issue again.
