Doppelganger Invasion Event and Bonuses

Posted by Community | 2022 May 05 12:31 -0400 GMT
The three realms have had their focus on their tactics and strategy - attack and counter-attack. Engaging in the maelstrom of combat and striking back with realm pride in their heart and vengeance channeled through their blades, staves, arrows, and imbued in their wielded magic. As they fight, reports have reached realm commanders of sinister invaders that have found their way into the Frontiers. Dispatch couriers vanish, realm guards are found hewn and mauled, and a heightened state of fear and anger is spreading through realm forces: The Doppelgangers have returned!

Expeditions across the frontiers report increased Doppelgangers sightings throughout the maze areas. Even the most hardened and long-time veteran realm guards in Breifine, Pennine Mountains, and Jamtland report that they have not seen such numbers in invasions past. A call to arms is made, and a bounty awaits those who would muster their courage, summon their realm mates, and rid the land of this foul menace

Alerted to the danger, the kings of the realms have placed a bounty on Doppelgangers in order to dispel these forces, before it's too late. 

  • A new daily group credit quest has been added to both Ywain and Gaheris servers requiring players to hunt down and cull the Doppelganger numbers for a reward of 10 Invader Seals.
    • Doppelgangers have a rare chance to drop additional Invader Seals regardless of the quest being active or not.
    • Each character can only benefit from a max of 300 seals.
    • Doppelganger spawn rates have been increased at their existing locations and more locations have been added at each realm's maze and throughout Breifine, Pennine Mountains, and Jamtland Mountains.
      • Doppelgangers now spawn on Gaheris for the duration of the event and will award the identical RP and BP amounts as they do on Ywain.
  • Rewards can be claimed at the Doppelganger Traitor at the strength relic town or in capital cities, and are unlocked at the following thresholds:
    • 10 seals = 1 Elixir of Conquest
    • 25 seals = 2 Elixirs of Conquest
    • 75 seals = 1 25% Realm Point Bonus potion (3 charges)
    • 125 seals = 1 Draught of Conquest
    • 175 seals = 1 50% Realm Point Bonus potion (3 charges)
    • 225 seals = 2 Draughts of Conquest
    • 300 seals = 1 50% Realm Point Bonus potion (30 charges)
  • Doppelganger spawn locations that were too close to outposts have been moved further away or to a new area.
  • Invader Seals earned from the previous Doppelganger Invasion event will not count towards this event.
  • The Doppelganger Traitor NPC found in the capital cities (only this one!) is also offering a way to expedite the event at a significant discount to the normal price of the event's mithril rewards!
Players should speak with the Doppelganger Traitor at relic towns or in their capital cities to start this quest.
  • All rewards and invader seals are no-trade, no-drop, no-destroy, and no-sell.
  • Any leftover invader seals on a character will be removed at the end of the event and cannot be transferred to other characters.
  • The Doppelganger Invasion event will come to an end on Tuesday, June 21st.
