The Rites of Spring Event

Posted by John Thornhill | 2018 Mar 29 15:54 -0400 GMT


  • The killer bunny makes his annual return!
  • The Gem of the Harbinger now has 7 new stat-variants to choose from!
    • As such, the gem no longer drops as a One-Time-Drop and instead is a loot-choice on the Rites of Spring quest.
    • Killing the Harbinger of Spring mob (battlegroup-credit) still grants the quest automatically.
    • There will be no item exchange service for the Gem of the Harbinger or any of its variants, choose carefully!
  • The Traveling Merchants have made their way through the muddy roads and set up shop in their usual spots; but this time with some price changes and new wares!
  • Enjoy Spring with some RvR bonuses!
Read on for the full details!

The Rites of Spring, Traveling merchants, and RvR bonuses will continue through Monday, April 16th.
 

St. Patrick's Day Event

Posted by John Thornhill | 2018 Mar 16 12:13 -0400 GMT
Are you feeling lucky?

In celebration of St. Patrick's Day and running from now until Monday, March 19th, our third annual 'Leprechaun Treasure' quest is on!  

To get the quest, level 50s should pay the following poor souls a consoling visit:

Edmund in Cotswold's tavern
Bjorne in Mularn's beer hall
Silvadren in Mag Mell's pub


 
  • As part of the quest, players will be shapeshifted into a realm-specific "leprechaun" but have ALL of their stats debuffed by 75%.
  • But fear not, leprechauns may be weak but they are also nigh impossible to catch: shapeshifted players will also have an unbreakable CC-immunity and speed buff for the duration of the shapeshift.  
  • Oh, and we hear the real leprechauns love hiding their treasure in dangerous lands and ancient ruins. Enjoy some zany RvR through the weekend!
  • The ROG reward is a choice between a ring or a bracer similar to the Valentine's Day event with some slight differences. These ROGs will only allow up to 5 slots for stats but will also have 1 of 6 possible /uses.
 
      
 
For players of all level ranges, there are three pesky little tricksters who are hoping you're not too lucky! A 'charming' reward will be bestowed upon those who have the cunning to out-wit:

Killaghe in Albion
Daighu in Midgard
Iollarme in Hibernia

The "Luck of a Leprechaun" quest can be obtained from the following:

Sir Prescott in Cotswold
Hrolf in Mularn
Epona in Mag Mell

Once again, the event will run until Monday, March 19th.

A happy and safe St. Patrick's Day to one and all, and we'll see you in the Frontiers!

Frozen Caverns and Ghost Keep Events

Posted by John Thornhill | 2018 Jan 29 17:04 -0500 GMT

The following events are now live until February 13th, 2018!
 

Frozen Cavern Event


  • Venture to the Frozen Cavern and test yourself against the chill... and its cunning inhabitant: Jack Frost!
  • Visit Njord in the following locations to enter the instance of your choice:
    • Albion: near Merlin's Tower in Camelot
    • Midgard: near the Burial Grounds in Jordheim
    • Hibernia: near the Chamber of Magic in Tir na Nog
  • Two modes exist for this instance: Normal and Challenging
    • The Normal mode has a chance to drop 1 of the following rewards:
      • Frozen chestpieces
      • Frozen and other mythirians
      • Infernal sleeves
      • Darkness Falls jewelry
      • Supremacy, celerity, or omni-regen potions
      • A Cracked Ice Crystal
    • The Challenging mode has a chance to drop 1 of the following rewards:
      • Frozen weapons
      • Frozen chestpieces
      • Frozen mythirians only
      • Darkness Falls jewelry
      • Supremacy, celerity, or omni-regen potions
      • A Cracked Ice Crystal
      • In addition to having a chance at the weapons, the chance at the mythirians and darkness falls jewelry is much higher. The chestpiece chance is the same in both modes.
  • Loot no longer drops directly from Jack Frost, instead a loot chest is spawned when he is defeated.
    • Players can interact with the chest and receive 1 guaranteed reward per day but can still participate in the instance as many times as desired.
    • This chest will despawn after 20 seconds, so be sure to grab your loot quickly!
  • The Frozen Cavern instance will be available until February 13th, 2018.


           


Ghost Keep Event


  • Members of each realm should make haste to their ghostly ambassador to strengthen their realm's cause:
    • Albion - See the Ancient Paladin in the Catterick Hamlet relic town
    • Midgard - See the Ancient Thane in the Godrborg relic town
    • Hibernia - See the Ancient Champion in the Crair Treflan relic town
  • Players should ask the 'Ancient' NPCs for a [progress] report to be directed to the current task at hand.
    • These NPCs offer two quests during the 'supply' phase of the event that can only be obtained and completed during that phase.
    • Once a ghost keep has been triggered by a realm, the 'supply' phase ends for all three realms and these NPCs will direct players to defend or attack the appropriate ghostly keep lord!
    • Be sure to visit this NPC at each phase to ensure you pick up any available quests.
  • Earn extra realm points for completing the tasks throughout each phase of the event!
  • A successfully summoned ghostly keep lord will offer the Ring of the Summoned reward, along with a quest for the Ghostly Medal of Valor!
  • For more in-depth information, our handy guide explains the phases of this event in detail!
  • Please note that realm point bonuses do not affect the RP rewards from this event's quests. 
  • Players who obtained the Ghostly Medal of Valor last year can obtain one more with this event.
    • The Ghostly Medal of Valor is now able to be traded.
  • The Ghost Keep event will be available until February 13th, 2018.

Test Server Downtime - Pendragon Patch 1.124

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Oct 03 13:09 -0400 GMT
Pendragon is now open to all players! 

Please note: Pendragon will be switching over to FFA/PvP ruleset on Friday, October 6th, prior to the start of the 1v1 tournament.


The Pendragon test server will be coming down today, October 3rd, at 2:00 PM EST / 7:00 PM GMT to update the existing 1.124 version there with the latest changes.

Highlights


  • Check out the brand-new Realm Rank 5 abilities for Hunters, Rangers, and Scouts!
  • Faster action returns to Ellan Vannin!
  • Earn more Realm Points from kills!
  • Mithril-based item durability repair is here!
  • Character movement has been greatly improved!
  • Several requested bug fixes such as the tooltip-delve crash, +range auras, item stacking issues and much more!


Important Note:
  • We highly suggest separating out your normal game directory from your Pendragon game directory *before* patching and testing on Pendragon.
    • If you do not do this, you *will* experience issues when patching back to live.
      • To force the live client to fix these issues, you will need to delete the mft.myp in your game's directory and run the patcher again.
For those interested in testing on Pendragon, follow the character copy process here!
