  • Players who fall through the floor/ground in RvR enabled zones will now take normal falling damage when they hit the ground, potentially killing them. PvE/RvR Death penalties apply and RPs will be awarded normally.
  • In light of recent events in Japan we will be turning off all house rent.
  • A new Quest completion icon has been added to the quest system. Any NPC having a quest you can complete with him will now display a blue knot above his head.
  • All players who are wielding two weapons will now reduce their target’s chance to block or evade by 25%.
  • Slam – the stun duration has been reduced to 5 seconds for all classes except for Heroes, Armsmen, and Warriors.
  • Quest rewards that you cannot use are now shaded red. Your selected item is now shaded a dark yellow. (UI Modifiers see engineering note below.)

Being the sacred relic of Hibernia’s King, Lug’s Spear of Lightning, was quite sought after this weekend. After an absence of some weeks it was returned to the shrine Saturday morning by the Hero Ruxxn only to get heisted by Albion forces again on Sunday night when Earthmover and Selinea carried it to their frontiers. But the Albion joy didn’t lasted long – a few hours later the relic was again stolen.

This weekend our Battle Herald put on dark clothes and sneaky boots, because he wanted to witness the secret battle between the stealthers of the realms. Expecting to be able to watch them in their natural habitat, the Battle Herald patrolled the bridges around Dun Crauchon for a while but was surprised to find those places surprisingly empty. He then decided to travel to Hadrian’s Wall to search for stealther around the massive fights going on in that area.

As King Erik has threatened, Midgard was back this weekend to have its revenge. After the Cauldron of Dagda – already pilfered by Albion – was stolen again and brought to Midgard on Saturday, Kaptkent led a Midgard raid through the Frontier on Sunday and managed to invade both relic temples in Albion.

Again Albion’s frontiers were devastated by marauding hordes from Midgard and Hibernia. Hibernia established a beachhead around Caer Berkstead while Midgard temporarily dominated the west of the frontiers. Albion managed to hold onto Midgard’s strength relic but lost theirs to Midgard when the gate of Castle Excalibur was broken open Sunday afternoon and Enoch carried it away.
