Bonus Extension

    • Realms must own their tower on Ellan Vannin as well as their normal merchant keep in order to teleport to the other realms' EV towers:
      • Albion can only teleport to the Towers of Deifrang and Graoch if they own the Tower of Korazh and Caer Benowyc.
      • Midgard can only teleport to the Towers of Korazh and Graoch if they own the Tower of Deifrang and Bledmeer Faste.
      • Hibernia can only teleport to the Towers of Korazh and Deifrang if they own the Tower of Graoch and Dun Crauchon.
    • Realms may teleport to their own EV Towers by simply owning their merchant keep as before.
  • The [Daily] Roaming with Friends and [Weekly] Roaming with Friends quests have had their kill counts reduced from 50 to 30 and 500 to 300 respectively.

Live Server Downtime - 20th Anniversary and 1.127E Update

Posted by John Thornhill | 2021 Oct 11 17:45 -0400 GMT
Update: Ywain and Gaheris are once again open to all players!

All live servers will be coming down tomorrow, Tuesday 10/12/21, at 5:45AM EDT / 11:45AM CET for our 20th Anniversary celebration and Patch 1.127E!

Happy Birthday Dark Age of Camelot!

20 years is a milestone that is both hard to believe and one that seems to have flown by.

The memories of water beetles being crunched under foot and by the swings of a 
shillelagh melds with that first trek across the river-bridge and up to Camelot's gates and with the sound (and imaginary stench) of a troll in combat... and everyone remembers their first time out RvRing in the Frontier and the rush of adrenaline as those first realm enemies came into clip range.

With 20 years we have a lot to celebrate and we hope you enjoy this update as much as we did putting it together.

So raise your cup, stein, and mug with me to the 20 years of battles, laughter, tears, friendship, and community that this game has brought us.

To 20+ more!


John Thornhill
Producer
Dark Age of Camelot
