Battle Herald: News from the Frontlines

Posted by Dave Crooks | 2011 Aug 08 07:53 -0400 GMT
The warhorn of Midgard could be heard all throughout Hadrian’s Wall early Sunday evening as a host lead by Vigdisdk cut a swath through Albion territory. The raiding party sacked towers at Caer Boldiam, Cear Berkstead, and Caer Benowyc with only mild resistance from the outnumbered Albion defenders. Pausing near Berkstead to prepare for another assault saw the forces of Midgard ambushed by a group Bainshees that had tracked them along the Suspiro River.

Glamorgan Maintenance - 08/04

Posted by Kai Schober | 2011 Aug 03 12:15 -0400 GMT

Update 1:15 pm EDT: Glamorgan is back online as an archived server.
Update 10:00 am EDT: Glamorgan is now offline for maintenance.


In an effort to finalize transfers from Glamorgan to Ywain we will be shutting down all zones on that server except for the following:

  • Classic Terrain/Dungeons
  • Housing
  • Capital Cities

Characters logged off in disabled zones will either return to their last legitimate bind location in a still functioning zone or, if the bind location is in a disabled zone, to their primary Border Keep within the Classic zones (Castle Sauvage, Svasud Faste and Druim Ligen).

We will be bringing Glamorgan offline tomorrow, Thursday 08/04, at 10:00 AM EDT in order to implement these changes. At this time we anticipate that the server will be back online no later than 3:00 PM EDT.

Thank you for your continued support and we'll see you on the battlefield!

Battle Herald: News from the Frontlines

Last week saw a very special anniversary: One of our oldest players celebrated his 80th birthday. Happy birthday, Gerd! We /salute you for your continued enthusiasm and wish you all the best for the years to come.

But the battles didn’t pause. Probably because of the relic situation – Midgard owns its relics and the ones of Hibernia, while Hibernia keeps controls the ones from Albion – Sunday evening saw a full scale invasion of Midgard’s frontiers. Hibernia’s forces established a foothold in Bledmeer Faste and were soon joined by a big Albion attack on Blendrake Faste. The Battle Herald was on site and you can find some impressions in the Facebook Album.

The Dark Age of Camelot Wiki

Posted by Kai Schober | 2011 Jul 13 18:23 -0400 GMT


In the last Producer’s Letter we announced a new Dark Age of Camelot wiki as one of the projects we had planned.  The goal was to allow an easy entry to the immense knowledge surrounding the game and to improve the overall experience both inside and outside the game world.

The wiki had a soft launch together with the new website, and was quickly discovered by some of you. It has since grown by hundreds of articles – especially regarding classes and zones, and the structure of the wiki was improved as well.

Several players have already became regular contributors, amongst which Etaew is most active, with a whole list of ideas on how to improve the wiki.

From today on you will find a direct link to the wiki in the right corner of the news box, next to the Facebook, Twitter and YouTube buttons. Why don’t you check it out and contribute your knowledge about your favorite template, skill set, quest or anything else people might find useful?

After a lot of back and forth skirmishes without major lands gains, Sunday evening saw the wrath of Albion renewed, when the troops of Billings and Rescu joined forces to recapture Albions relics which were both held in Hibernia. After gaining a foothold in Dun da Behnn the Albion invaders quickly laid siege on Dun nGed and took it while Hibernia defenders were distracted by a simultaneous attack of Albion on Ailinne Outpost and a Migard raid on Dun Crimthain.
