To start the ball rolling on this, our first Ywain/Gaheris poll: Increasing the maximum character level beyond level 50!

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!

A Ghostly Incursion begins...

Posted by John Thornhill | 2020 Feb 20 11:01 -0500 GMT

           


Ghost Keep Event


Update: The Dynamic Keep Channelers at Caer Berkstead, Nottmoor Faste, and Dun Crimthainn that can teleport players into the inner keep of their respective keeps will now spawn when their Ghost Keep Lord is active AND the keep is actively under siege (flames on the realmwar map). 
 
  • Members of each realm should make haste to their ghostly ambassador to strengthen their realm's cause:
    • Albion - See the Ancient Paladin in the Catterick Hamlet relic town
    • Midgard - See the Ancient Thane in the Godrborg relic town
    • Hibernia - See the Ancient Champion in the Crair Treflan relic town
  • Players should ask the 'Ancient' NPCs for a [progress] report to be directed to the current task at hand.
    • These NPCs offer two quests during the 'supply' phase of the event that can only be obtained and completed during that phase.
    • Once a ghost keep has been triggered by a realm, the 'supply' phase ends for all three realms and these NPCs will direct players to defend or attack the appropriate ghostly keep lord!
    • Be sure to visit this NPC at each phase to ensure you pick up any available quests.
  • Earn extra realm and bounty points for completing the tasks throughout each phase of the event!
  • A successfully summoned ghostly keep lord will offer the Ring of the Summoned reward, along with a quest for the Ghostly Medal of Valor!
    • Please note that players who have already completed the Ring of the Summoned quest can obtain another one or exchange their existing one for another at the ghostly keep lord.
    • Players who obtained the Ghostly Medal of Valor last year can obtain one more with this event.
  • For more in-depth information, our handy guide explains the phases of this event in detail!
  • The Ghost Keep event will be available until March 10th, 2020.

It's a Valentine's Day Grab Bag! Happy Valentine's Day, everyone :)

While the rest of us are out doing something special for our hunnies, Whitman the Imp has also been busy today and has managed to find himself something special that he's sure will melt even the heart of his scorned succubus love! Avenge him for Lady Payne and steal his gift for your someone special instead! Or yourself, no judgement.

Developer's note: Players that have already killed Whitman and completed the 'A Matter of the Heart' quest will need to kill Whitman again to receive his One Time Drop gift. The 'A Matter of the Heart' quest is not needed to receive the OTD for anyone. Limit one per character and the gift is tradable.
