Breach Event: The Mazes

Posted by Community | 2023 Jul 07 13:36 -0400 GMT
Adventurers around the ruins of the old maze are vanishing and scouting parties sent to investigate the ruins of other realms have not returned. We fear a larger evil is brewing deep within, and demons have found another way to enter our lands. Threats to our worlds must be crushed!


Adventurers should speak with the following NPC's to receive two new quests:
  • Albion: Lady Idris in Catterick Hamlet
  • Hibernia: Yda Llonwy in Crair Treflan
  • Midgard: Fathor in Godrborg
Harvesting Crystals

Harvest the crystals that have appeared at the ruins of the old mazes across the realms.

This quest is repeatable and awards 5,000 Bounty Points and 500 Realm Points (affected by bonuses) per turn in.

Further Breaches

The evil on Ellan Vannin has been halted, but the demons persist on trying to enter our world. Defeat these threats at the ancient maze ruins! 

This is a daily quest and is a Battlegroup encounter. Completing the quest by defeating all three mobs awards you with 10,000 Realm Points (affected by bonuses) and a useable crate which will provide one of the following:
  • Various Trophies
  • Realm Point Bonus Pots
  • Recently Added Extended Potions
  • Wares from Dungeons of Old
Note: the quest mobs will not give previous quest credits or drops. The rewards also have a very small chance to drop Catacombs bows.

The Breach mini event will run until Tuesday July 25th, 2023.

Important Note:

    • If you do not do this, you *will* experience issues when patching back to live.
