Traveling Merchants Return!

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Apr 20 09:56 -0400 GMT

The traveling merchants have been... err, traveling for too long but have finally returned to the realms to share their wares... for a price.

Several items have had their prices reduced and you'll find never-before-sold loot including the Frozen Medal of Honor, Gem of the Harbinger, and some of the new Darkness Falls items!

The Merchants have set up shop in their usual areas, so be sure to pay them a visit  and stock up before they take their leave a fortnight from now!

In Albion: Just outside of gates of Castle Sauvage in Camelot Hills
In Midgard: Just outside of Svasud Faste in the Vale of Mularn
In Hibernia: Just outside of Druim Ligen in Connacht

UPDATE: The Rites of Spring Event has come to an end.

Greetings all,

With the closing of the Killaloe Battleground event today, the Harbinger of Spring has hopped his way over to Agramon and is looking like his normal, cute, cuddly self there. Just watch out for those teeth!
  • The Gem of the Harbinger is still able to be obtained by any character that has not already received it this year.
  • Sir Yvain of Castle Sauvage, Sigmundarson of Svasud Faste, and Fionn Mac Cumhail of Drium Ligen are offering the Rites of Spring quest to push back the white haired menace.
    • Complete the quest for the Bracelet of Springtime Folly!
    • Note that only characters who did not complete the quest last year are able to get it this year.

The Harbinger of Spring Returns to Killaloe!

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Mar 30 10:10 -0400 GMT

Springtime is here again, and with the warmth and renewed bloom of the landscape an ancient menace returns!

The deceptively cuddly Harbinger of Spring has found its way into the Battleground of Killaloe once more. It has devoured the Keep Lord of Dun Killaloe and has taken up residence on its roof, awaiting fresh prey. The Kings of the Realms have placed a bounty on this beast, and have dispatched Channelers to the Borderkeeps of Castle Sauvage, Svasud Faste, and Druim Ligen to offer passage to any who wish to drive this menace out of Killaloe and collect the coveted Gem of the Harbinger!

The Killaloe Battleground Event will begin this morning, Monday, March 30th and conclude in the morning on Friday, April 3rd. Following the Battleground Event, the Rites of Spring quest will be activated in the Frontiers on Ywain.

On Gaheris, the normal Rites of Spring event has been activated!
