Patch 1.127's development is ongoing as we iron out the last few remaining issues and internally test the version. 1.127 includes a major market explorer search revamp, brand new housing models and textures (and they look FANTASTIC!), class changes based on your ongoing feedback, many, many much-requested bug fixes, and much more! We hope to have the version available for testing on Pendragon within the next few weeks!

Traveling Merchants and Shipwreck Salvage

Posted by John Thornhill | 2020 Apr 15 17:05 -0400 GMT
  • The traveling merchants have returned for the Spring festivities!
    • They will remain until the festivities end on May 5th, 2020.
  • A new, permanent gather quest, Shipwreck Salvage, has been added that will be enabled whenever seasonal gather quests are inactive.
    • Players can obtain the quest at their Commander NPC in their realm's strength relic town:
      • Albion: Commander Wentworth in Catterick Hamlet
      • Midgard: Commander Hrurdin in Godrborg
      • Hibernia: Commander Locke Crair Treflan
    • This quest can be obtained on both the Ywain and Gaheris servers.

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!

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 Rites of Spring Event

Posted by John Thornhill | 2020 Apr 09 16:02 -0400 GMT


  • The Spring Preparations quest has been extended until April 14th!
  • The killer bunny makes his annual return!
  • Collect and choose your Gem of the Harbinger reward!
    • Remember, the gem no longer drops as a One-Time-Drop and instead is a loot-choice on the Rites of Spring quest.
    • Killing the Harbinger of Spring mob (battlegroup-credit) still grants the quest automatically.
    • There will be no item exchange service for the Gem of the Harbinger or any of its variants, choose carefully!
    • Players who defeat the Harbinger this year should be careful, or they'll find themselves forever reminded of the battle!
  • Continue to enjoy Spring with the currently active RvR bonuses and Doppelganger Invasion event!
Read on for the full details!

The Rites of Spring event will remain until Tuesday, May 5th.
