A Scouting Report...

Posted by Development | 2015 Jun 23 12:08 -0400 GMT

Location: Jotunheim (Date Unknown)

I believe in the Gods. How can you not? But I never thought I’d see one. There was no mistaking Ymir as soon as he stepped from the portal. Although most Jotun look alike, Ymir is ancient and much larger. He brought with him a horde of frost and stone giants. They gained a foothold in Vanern Swamp.

Musings of a Scholar...

Announcing the Otherworlds Campaign

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Jun 11 22:38 -0400 GMT
We’re excited to announce the new Otherworlds Campaign today as part of the upcoming 1.118 patch! This campaign will involve an extensive story arc and content update to be released in quick, regular stages over the course of the summer and fall, culminating in an exciting intertwining of PvE and RvR!

Those who tuned into our Twitch live stream over the past day got a sneak peak at the new zone art and effects that are a part of the campaign.


• Prove yourself against the newest threat to the realms and unlock new stat caps for your character by earning new item rewards!
• Collect brand new specialty crafting components for new potions and improved legendary weapons!
• Conquer the ghost of King Uther in Albion, the Jotunn Ymir in Midgard, and the Siabra-Queen Cliodna in Hibernia and help your realm win the war in the Frontiers!

MMORPG.com has an exclusive first look into the new Otherworlds Campaign including video footage and an interview that delves into the details!

FInally, the first stage of this campaign is now available on the Pendragon test server. Visit the following NPCs to embark on the new quests and give us your feedback before the campaign goes live with the 1.118 patch!

Albion: Chamberlain Harlen in the Throne Room
Midgard: Athr Hasetti Theyr in the Throne Room
Hibernia: Seneschal Desmond in the Throne Room


Or, if you've already completed the encounter in Lyonesse, Vanern Swamp, or the Bog of Cullen you can head straight to the following NPCS:

Albion: Lieutenant Haley in Lyonesse
Midgard: Arin Snowtouch in Vanern Swamp
Hibernia: Nara Manastrong in Bog of Cullen


Pendragon Patch 1.118a

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Jun 04 15:55 -0400 GMT

Greetings all,

With the 1.118 patch we've spent a lot of time working on not only exciting content and improvements but also on some behind-the-scenes fixes for Guilds and other systems that won't find their way into the patch notes. These fixes were necessary and will help us better reach our goals as we march onward. In addition, the notes linked below are only the first part, part A, of the entire 1.118 patch. We will be doing a second, 1.118B version in the coming weeks that will include some of our other promised features like the New Frontiers pathing improvements, as well as much more!

For now, you can read the 1.118a patch notes HERE!

Pendragon Server Downtime

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Jun 03 14:48 -0400 GMT

Update 4:55pm EST / 9:55pm GMT: Pendragon is up!

The Pendragon server will be coming down tomorrow, June 4th, at 2pm EST / 7pm GMT, for an update.

The test server should be back online by 6:30pm EST / 11:30pm GMT.

Character and Guild Search Stats Downtime

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 May 28 18:30 -0400 GMT
The character and guild search stats (found HERE) are unable to update currently. The search function still works but no RvR, experience, or tradeskill stats will update until we implement a fix. We have that fix ready but it requires live server downtime to implement it. As such, we are planning to implement this fix when 1.118 goes live in a few short weeks to avoid taking the live servers down more than necessary.
