Hot Fix: A Crash Fix

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 Mar 07 11:15 -0500 GMT
A huge thank you to all of the dedicated players who contributed their information and data to help us resolve this insidious issue!

  • Players should no longer experience a crash-to-desktop in certain locations, including the Capital Cities and several dungeons or instances, though the crash could have theoretically happened in almost any area of the game.
    • If currently online, players will need to log-out completely and re-patch their client to obtain this update.
    • Thanks again to all of the players who helped us track this down!

Frontiers Update: Generals' Report

Posted by Development | 2019 Feb 22 17:04 -0500 GMT

The Frontier Generals Kogis, Bruki, and Vegda have delivered an urgent report of strange earth-shaking events in Hadrian's Wall, Odin's Gate, and Emain Macha!

  • No known cause is reported but they suspect this could be Manannan mac Lir's doing... somehow.
  • Caer Benowyc, Bledmeer Faste, and Dun Crauchon and all of their towers are in ruins!
    • These Ruined Keeps' walls and doors cannot be repaired and postern doors can be used by any realm.
      • Wholesale repairs on these keeps will be too costly and impossible for some time, however some Repair Supply shipments are beginning to be stockpiled at the keeps.
        • Players on the Supplies for the Cause quest can now visit these Ruined Keeps and gather Repair Supplies.
        • Repair Supplies remain available at Folley Lake, the Trellebourg, and Moydruim Castle too.
    • Teleport to these outposts is still available.
      • Players can use the /realmwar map to teleport to these outposts as normal.
      • Ownership of the keep and all of its towers is still required for teleport.
      • Ownership of these keeps is still required to open telepot to enemy realms or to the Ellan Vannin towers.
    • The Lords of each keep and their tower captains maintain their ever vigilant watch.
      • These Ruined Keeps can be captured and controlled normally but will not spawn any extra guards.
      • These keeps and towers cannot be claimed by guilds.

Now is the time to strike your enemies, but be sure to defend your own Ruined Keep and its towers too!

Time for another edition of the  Grab Bag!

This Grab Bag we've taken some of the hot topics discussed many times on our official forums as our "questions" for this week. While we still have much, much more to say on these topics, we felt, just as much as you asked, that some info was needed right now. For those who sent in specific Grab Bag questions, don't worry we'll return to those soon :)

You can send in any game related questions you have for our DAoC Devs through our Grab Bag submission form. Please note this is for game mechanic questions. Feedback/ideas/suggestions should be sent in through our feedback form.

Read on for the updates disguised as questions!


A New Mask, Valentine's Day Event, and RvR Bonuses

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 Feb 13 16:57 -0500 GMT
Love is in the air as we celebrate the return of our Valentine's Day event and celebrate President's Day weekend with some RvR bonuses!
 
This event will run from Wednesday, February 13th through Tuesday, February 19th.


 

Ellan Vannin stirs...

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 Feb 06 11:00 -0500 GMT
The ghostly incursion has come to an end but Manannan mac Lir seems to be growing restless. The realms' generals, ever vigilant, have taken notice.

For now, there's nothing much to do but ensure Manannan mac Lir's sway doesn't expand beyond his temporary holds on the underground keep of Knoc Meayll. 

  • As a precaution, the realms have devoted extra resources to Ellan Vannin, opening up direct teleport to the Towers of Korazh, Deifrang, and Graoch!
    • Teleport to these towers is one-way only and can be initiated via the /realmwar map.
    • Teleport is only possible if the realm's supply line is intact:
      • Albion must hold Caer Boldiam and Caer Benowyc to teleport to an EV tower
      • Midgard must hold Glenlock Faste and Bledmeer Faste to teleport to an EV tower
      • Hibernia must hold Dun nGed and Dun Crauchon to teleport to an EV tower
  • Level 50s should visit their realm's General to obtain the [Manx] [Daily] Preventive Measures quest!
    • Speak to General Kogis in Catterick Hamlet
    • Speak to General Bruki in Godrborg
    • Speak to General Vegda in Crair Treflan
