Frontiers Update: Generals' Report

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.
  • Caer Benowyc, Bledmeer Faste, and Dun Crauchon and all of their towers are in ruins!
    • 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!

Ellan Vannin stirs...

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 Feb 06 11:00 -0500 GMT
The ghostly incursion has come to an end but Manannan mac Lir seems to be growing restless. The realms' generals, ever vigilant, have taken notice.

For now, there's nothing much to do but ensure Manannan mac Lir's sway doesn't expand beyond his temporary holds on the underground keep of Knoc Meayll. 

  • As a precaution, the realms have devoted extra resources to Ellan Vannin, opening up direct teleport to the Towers of Korazh, Deifrang, and Graoch!
    • Teleport to these towers is one-way only and can be initiated via the /realmwar map.
    • Teleport is only possible if the realm's supply line is intact:
      • Albion must hold Caer Boldiam and Caer Benowyc to teleport to an EV tower
      • Midgard must hold Glenlock Faste and Bledmeer Faste to teleport to an EV tower
      • Hibernia must hold Dun nGed and Dun Crauchon to teleport to an EV tower
  • Level 50s should visit their realm's General to obtain the [Manx] [Daily] Preventive Measures quest!
    • Speak to General Kogis in Catterick Hamlet
    • Speak to General Bruki in Godrborg
    • Speak to General Vegda in Crair Treflan

A Ghostly Incursion begins...

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 Jan 16 13:16 -0500 GMT

           


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 and bounty 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!
    • Please note that players who have already completed the Ring of the Summoned quest can obtain a new one or exchange their existing one for a new one at the ghostly keep lord.
    • Players who obtained the Ghostly Medal of Valor last year can obtain one more with this event.
  • For more in-depth information, our handy guide explains the phases of this event in detail!
  • The Ghost Keep event will be available until February 6th, 2019.
