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!

Client Hot Fix

Posted by John Thornhill | 2016 Mar 15 17:11 -0400 GMT
A very quick Hot Fix note based on player feedback:

  • Spell effect icons now start blinking with 10 remaining seconds (as they did prior to 1.120) but will continue to display their duration on their tooltips down to 3 seconds at which point the duration text will change to "fading."

If already logged in, players will need to log out and run the patcher in order to see this change.

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 may 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!

Origin Fraud Protection

Posted by John Thornhill | 2016 Mar 02 16:12 -0500 GMT

The Electronics Arts Origin store has made the following change to in order to better prevent fraud: it can now take up to 72 hours to receive a code from Origin on some purchases.

This timeframe is dependant on the number of codes purchased at once as well as other variables. Most players should still receive their codes within 24 hours, however, it would be a good idea to order any new game time codes 72 hours prior to your account subscription ending if you wish to guarantee no subscription downtime.

If, for some reason, a purchased code is not sent within 72 hours, please contact Origin's support directly. 

When contacting Origin, please only state the following: "I did not receive my code after making a purchase on the Origin store. My order# is #####." Mentioning Dark Age of Camelot can sometimes result in being directed back to our support team, who unfortunately cannot assist with this issue, so be sure to only mention the above quote.

We apologize for the inconvenience this causes and appreciate your patience and understanding as we work with Origin to streamline this process.

End of Midwinter Celebration and Hot Fix Notes

Posted by John Thornhill | 2016 Jan 25 14:41 -0500 GMT
The Midwinter celebration has finally come to an end and the RvR, experience, and crafting bonuses have returned to normal along with it. The traveling band of merchants have packed up their wares and moved on, promising to return one day. But fret not! For the following Hot Fix notes are now live!

  • The Buggane's Obelisk RvR objective in the center of Ellan Vannin has had the following changes made to it:
    • The Buggane's Obelisk and Obelisk Rubble have had their hitpoints significantly reduced so that small groups can destroy them in a reasonable amount of time.
    • The obelisk's buff, Buggane's Folly, will no longer still persist through death and has had its duration increased from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
    • Finally, the RP, BP, and Coin buff now provides different bonuses based on the character's realm rank, as follows:
      • Realm Ranks 1L0 through 3L9 receive a 75% bonus to RP, BP, and coin buff.
      • Realm Ranks 4L0 through 5L9 receive a 50% bonus to RP, BP, and coin buff.
      • Realm Ranks 6L0 through 7L9 receive a 25% bonus to RP, BP, and coin buff.
      • Realm Ranks 8L0 and up will receive the original 15% bonus to RP, BP, and coin buff.
      • To receive the buff, destroy the obelisk rubble so that your realm's obelisk can be built. Then, simply right-click on the obelisk to receive the bonus!
  • (Gaheris-only) Manannan mac Lir's encounter inside the underground keep on Ellan Vannin should behave properly now.
