TGIF! Time for the Grab Bag!

It's also coming to the end of the month which means the April newsletter is not far away! Make sure you've signed up to get the newsletter right to your inbox as soon as it's out :)

Thanks, as always, to everyone for your questions! You can submit any questions relating to current development plans, to request clarification on basic game mechanic questions, or questions on community issues through the Grab Bag Submission form.

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!

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.

St Patrick's Day Event and Endless Conquest Announcement

Posted by John Thornhill | 2020 Mar 12 15:48 -0400 GMT


Endless Conquest


  • As of this posting, the 180 day account inactivity restriction for Endless Conquest eligibility has been reduced to 120 days.
    • This reduction aligns with the house repossession timer due to account inactivity which will be re-enabled in the upcoming 1.127 Patch.
    • Accounts that are already past the 120 day mark are now automatically eligible to play for free as an Endless Conquest account!
    • Accounts that have recently gone inactive will now only need to wait for the remainder of the new 120 day threshold to be eligible.
Players interested in coming back to Dark Age of Camelot should visit our Endless Conquest FAQ and Features Table pages!

St. Patrick's Day Event


Are you feeling lucky? 

In celebration of St. Patrick's Day and running from now until Wednesday, March 18th, a random-object-generated (ROG) reward awaits those that can complete the annual 'Leprechaun Treasure' quest. One quest completion per character, per year!

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 around the mazes areas of each realm. 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.
  • Players that interact with the 'Leprechaun Treasure' at the realms' mazes will now receive a new One-Time Drop (OTD) reward, Patches' Mug.
    • This OTD can only be obtained once ever on a character (and not a new one each year).
    • Players must be on the 'Leprechaun Treasure' quest to interact with the Leprechaun Treasure and obtain this OTD.


      
 

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 Wednesday, March 18th.

A happy and safe St. Patrick's Day to one and all, and we'll see you in the Frontiers!
