18th Year Anniversary Celebration

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 Oct 10 12:03 -0400 GMT

Please join us in wishing a very special Happy Birthday to Dark Age of Camelot, today. Eighteen years of adventures, battles, friendships, and fun have meant the world to us and especially our players both past and present. Here's to many more!

In celebration of the anniversary and in appreciation for all of our current players, we have the following bonuses and rewards available!

Endless Conquest Update

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 Sep 30 16:29 -0400 GMT
The launch of Dark Age of Camelot: Endless Conquest, a way to play permanently without a paid subscription, is just around the corner and we are excited to provide you all with this detailed update!

First, we are making excellent headway in our testing phase of Endless Conquest (EC) as well as the rest of Patch 1.126. Further, because the bulk of EC features will not be testable by player accounts prior to the live launch, we expect a relatively short stay on the Pendragon test-server before bringing Endless Conquest to Ywain and Gaheris (yep, both servers!). As you know, anything can come up during the development process but we're very excited to announce that we are currently on track for a live launch in the latter-half of October!

Next, we have continued to iterate on the various privileges and restrictions involved with EC and are excited to announce our planned list for launch! EC accounts will be able to earn max character level and realm rank, Champion and Master Levels, all end-game gear, and so much more! Please follow the link to our Endless Conquest page and FAQ which includes in-depth information and a handy table of all the privileges and restrictions for both EC and Veteran (subscribed) accounts!

We'll follow this announcement up with a special, EC-centered Grab Bag this Friday, so be sure to submit your questions before then!

Posted by Development | 2019 Feb 22 17:04 -0500 GMT

The Frontier Generals Kogis, Bruki, and Vegda have delivered an urgent report of strange earth-shaking events in Hadrian's Wall, Odin's Gate, and Emain Macha!

  • No known cause is reported but they suspect this could be Manannan mac Lir's doing... somehow.

    • These Ruined Keeps' walls and doors cannot be repaired and postern doors can be used by any realm.
      • Wholesale repairs on these keeps will be too costly and impossible for some time, however some Repair Supply shipments are beginning to be stockpiled at the keeps.
        • Players on the Supplies for the Cause quest can now visit these Ruined Keeps and gather Repair Supplies.
        • Repair Supplies remain available at Folley Lake, the Trellebourg, and Moydruim Castle too.
    • Teleport to these outposts is still available.
      • Players can use the /realmwar map to teleport to these outposts as normal.
      • Ownership of the keep and all of its towers is still required for teleport.
      • Ownership of these keeps is still required to open telepot to enemy realms or to the Ellan Vannin towers.
    • The Lords of each keep and their tower captains maintain their ever vigilant watch.
      • These Ruined Keeps can be captured and controlled normally but will not spawn any extra guards.
      • These keeps and towers cannot be claimed by guilds.

Now is the time to strike your enemies, but be sure to defend your own Ruined Keep and its towers too!
