The killer bunny makes his annual return! Defeat the Harbinger and earn your own bunny mount!

    • 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!
    • Players who defeat the Harbinger should be careful, or they'll find themselves forever reminded of the battle!
  • Bunny mounts return! 5 Varieties!
  • Fun and mayhem in Killaloe!
  • Check out the Event Shop in the capital city to pick up your spring-themed shield pattern!

Saint Patrick's Day Event

Posted by Community | 2024 Mar 14 18:34 -0400 GMT
In celebration of St. Patrick's Day and running from Today, Thursday March 14th until Tuesday, March 19th, a random-object-generated (ROG) reward awaits those who complete the annual 'Leprechaun Treasure' quest. Please remember - one quest completion per character, per year!

To obtain the quest, level 50s should pay the following poor souls a visit to help them ease their woes.
  • 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 around the "maze" areas of each realm. Enjoy some zany RvR throughout the event!
  • The ROG reward is a choice between a ring or a bracer similar to the standard Valentine's Day Imp quest with some slight differences. These ROGs will only allow up to 5 slots for stats but will also have 1 of 6 possible /uses.
  • Players that interact with the 'Leprechaun Treasure' at the realms' mazes will now receive a new One-Time Drop (OTD) reward, Patches' Mug.
  • This OTD can only be obtained once ever on a character (and not a new one each year).
  • Players must be on the 'Leprechaun Treasure' quest to interact with the Leprechaun Treasure and obtain this OTD.
For the duration of the event, an additional 50% RP bonus is active in the areas of Pennine Mountains, Breifine, and Jamtland Mountains on Ywain! On Gaheris, the RP bonus has been added to all 3 capital cities.

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, this event will conclude on Tuesday, March 19st!

We wish you a happy and safe St. Patrick's Day!

1.128c Pendragon Fixes and Notes

Posted by Community | 2024 Mar 09 09:08 -0500 GMT
The Pendragon test server has been updated with the below fixes and changes.

Please hop on Pendragon and check out the below changes! Let us know your thoughts and report any issues you may find in the 1.128c patch channels in our official DAoC Discord, thank you!

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!

    • Hibernia - See the Ancient Champion in the Crair Treflan relic town

    • 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!

  • 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 another one or exchange their existing one for another at the ghostly keep lord.
    • Players who obtained the Ghostly Medal of Valor last year can obtain one more with this event.
  • The Dynamic Keep Channelers at Caer Berkstead, Nottmoor Faste, and Dun Crimthainn that can teleport players into the inner keep of their respective keeps make their return for the event.
    • The channelers will spawn when their Ghost Keep Lord is active AND the keep is actively under siege (flames on the realmwar map).
  • Speak to the ghostly ambassador at the relic towns to obtain the additional quest [Ghost Keep] Ghosts of Enemies Past. Complete this quest to earn a Ghostly Weapon token to turn in for a weapon of your choice!
    • Can only be completed once per toon
