Pendragon Downtime for Patch 1.119

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Nov 10 20:31 -0500 GMT
Update: Pendragon is now up, check out the 1.119 Notes here or by clicking the image below!

The Pendragon server will be down tomorrow, Wednesday 11/11/15, at 2PM EST / 7PM GMT for patch 1.119!

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!

The Traveling Merchants Project

Posted by Community | 2015 Oct 14 10:51 -0400 GMT
This time of year is full of candy-induced excitement and frightful practical jokes, and almost nothing is more exciting (or scary) than the traveling merchants and their prices! Stock up and get your items before these weary travelers vanish once more!

Several popular items have also made their return, including Darkness Falls Weapons and the Midwinter Frozen Medal of Honor.

Players can find the merchants at the below locations. Happy Shopping!

In Albion: Just outside of gates of Castle Sauvage in Camelot Hills
In Midgard: Just outside of Svasud Faste in the Vale of Mularn
In Hibernia: Just outside of Druim Ligen in Connacht

The merchants will remain through the 28th of October.
