What is Catch Up in Caledonia Braemar?

It's a way to start fresh and rapidly progress to the end-game with players around your level

The 7-day long event that will take place entirely in the Realm vs Realm-enabled Braemar battleground zone

Players will start at level 1 and rapidly progress to level 50 all while earning gear, master levels, champion levels, and realm ranks along the way!

By event's end participants will be ready to compete in the Frontier!

When does the event start and end?

The event started at 5 PM EST / 11 PM CET on Monday, November 7th  a nd will end at the same time on Monday, November 14th.

How does the event work?

  • For the first 4 days of the event, newly created level 1 characters will be automatically zoned into the Braemar battleground where they will vie for control against the enemy realms!
    • This will be the ONLY way to get inside the battleground zone. Once inside, characters can voluntarily leave but CANNOT return!
    • All monsters, center-keep guards, and siege weapons are removed for the event. The only way to progress is by defeating realm enemies in battle and completing the related quests.
    • Charm-pet classes will be able to create a pet to charm at their realm's portal keep.
  • ​New character creation will not be disabled for this event, and players will be able to join until the event concludes.
  • Experience, bounty, and realm point bonuses will be granted to both free and subscribed accounts in the battleground to help them progress!
  • Earn bounty points for completing quests and defeating enemy realm players and use them to purchase level-appropriate gear as you strive to 50 and then master and champion levels!
  • All characters will begin and remain in the same zone for the entirety of the event.
    • The following level caps will be in place for all characters in Braemar and will increase as follows every 24 hours:
      • Day 1 (Monday): Level 19 maximum
      • Day 2 (Tuesday): Level 29 
      • Day 3 (Wednesday): Level 39 
      • Day 4 (Thursday) : Level 49
      • Days 5-7 (Fri-Mon): Level 50
    • Characters that reach the day's level cap will still be able to earn realm and bounty points.
  • Characters that are 5 levels or more below the day's level cap will receive the Caledonia Boost buff.
    • This buff greatly increases the damage dealt and greatly reduces damage received from characters that do not have the buff (higher level characters)!
    • Characters with the Caledonia Boost buff active will also DOUBLE the XP and BP rewards for themselves and their group!
    • When the level cap reaches 49 the buff will be given out to characters 3 or more levels under the cap.
  • Overwhelming Force system:
    • Overwhelming Force is not active in Braemar.
  • Level 1 characters first zoning in should visit the Braemar Event Coordinator NPC to automatically reach level 10 and recive 100BPs in order to purchase gear.
  • Realm population will be reviewed and evaluated as the event progresses.

How far will I be able to progress?

Players that start at the beginning of the event should be able to reach level 50, Champion level 15, Master level 10, and Realm Rank 5+ with the potential to earn much higher realm ranks! Characters will also be able to earn enough bounty points to not only obtain gear as they progress towards level 50, but also to use for end-game gear via Bountycrafting after reaching level 50!
