1.126 Live Hot Fix

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 Nov 13 16:38 -0500 GMT

Endless Conquest and patch 1.126 have been up and running smoothly for a full day now. It's been exciting seeing all the new (and many familiar!) faces. A huge thank you to those who have sent in feedback and/or bug reports, please keep them coming! We have some fixes and changes based on those initial reports for you this evening.

Developer's note:

  • We're currently aware of and working hard on fixes for the following issues (these fixes will likely require server downtime to address):
    • Certain pets chain-buffing themselves as well as occassionally enemy targets.
    • Certain pets not casting certain abilities that they normally would.
    • Targeting and attacking issues after coming out of forceful zephyr.
      • NOTE: As a temporary solution, players experiencing this issue can clear their target by clicking on the ground and then re-select their target to be able to attack again.
    • Dead players appearing as "alive" briefly after /releasing.
    • The /bg groups command no longer functioning

1.126 Pendragon Test-Server Patch Notes

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 Oct 29 14:49 -0400 GMT
Patch 1.126 and Endless Conquest are now on our Pendragon Test server! 

Please hop on and test our latest changes and leave us your detailed feedback! Our live launch of patch 1.126 is just around the corner in November and the more testing and feedback we receive the better it will be!

Important Note:
  • We highly suggest duplicating your game directory and using the duplicate copy as a Pendragon-only game directory *before* patching and testing on Pendragon.
    • ​This means duplicating the entire "Labyrinth" folder (usually found at C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Labyrinth) to another location and using that copied folder exclusively for Pendragon testing.
    • ​If you do not do this, you *will* experience issues when patching from Pendragon 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 then run the camelot.exe patcher again.
For those interested in testing on Pendragon, follow the character copy process here!

Live Hot Fix and Dynamic Keep Objectives Event

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 Jun 25 13:47 -0400 GMT

This update features the long-awaited dynamic keep objectives and several bug fixes as reported on our bug tracker! We look forward to your feedback on these objectives, and hope you enjoy them! :)

Dynamic Keep Objectives

This system is designed to help spice up keep warfare and to encourage more varied and contested battles at the affected keeps. The objectives provide powerful enhancements and penalties, depending on which realm controls them, that should encourage many new tactics and strategies. These objectives are currently planned to remain active until Thursday, July 25th, 2019. We will be taking in your feedback on them and adjusting accordingly in the meantime. Depending on how they are received they may be extended out to additional keeps in the Frontiers in the future.


  • The keeps of Caer Berkstead, Erasleigh, and Sursbrooke in Albion, Nottmoor, Blendrake, Hlidskialf Faste in Midgard, and Dun Crimthainn, Bolg, and da Behnn in Hibernia have been updated to use the dynamic keep objective system.
  • Each of these keeps will now spawn their dynamic objectives whenever they are put under siege.
    • All dynamic objectives will initially spawn under control of the same realm that holds the keep.
    • Dynamic objectives will remain active for at least 10 minutes after a keep has initially gone under siege and will remain active so long as the keep remains under siege.
    • Under-siege status of a keep can be determined by the /realmwar map showing "flames" on the keep icon.
    • The objectives are spawned far enough away from their respective keep so a single force cannot camp them and the keep simultaneously.
      • For players familiar with the recent Manx on the Move event, the objectives are spawned at the same locations (except at only 3 locations out of the 4 the Manx used).
  • The dynamic keep objectives are as follows:
    • Stone Quarry
      • When the defending realm of the keep controls the objective:
        • Upgrades the level of the keep one level after 60 seconds and then upgrades the level of the keep one level every 10 minutes thereafter.
      • When the attacking realms control the objective:
        • Downgrades the level of the keep one level after 60 seconds and then downgrades the level of the keep one level every 10 minutes thereafter.
    • Siege Workshop
      • When the defending realm of the keep controls the objective:
        • Triples the sturdiness of the outer and inner gates, respectively.
      • When the attacking realms control the objective:
        • Halves the sturdiness of the outer and inner gates, respectively.
        • Removes the ability for siege weapons to be placed on the roof of the center keep.
    • Portal Ceremony
      • When the defending realm of the keep controls the objective:
        • Realm-members can visit the Channeler at this objective to instantly teleport into the center keep.
      • When the attacking realms control the objective:
        • Blocks the defending realm from using the Channeler.
  • A new repeatable quest, Generals' Bounty, is available to level 50s in the frontier.
    • This quest will remain active until Thursday, July 25th, 2019.
    • Players should visit the following NPCs to obtain the quest:
      • General Kogis in Albion's relic town.
      • General Bruki in Midgard's relic town.
      • General Vegda in Hibernia's relic town.

Hot Fix Notes


  • The Mithril Shop has a new item for sale!
    • Visit the Mithril Merchant in each realm's capital city to obtain the Draught of Conquest buff potion.
      • This potion has 30 charges and works identically to the Draught of Supremacy potions except that Supremacy potions can only be used by accounts with an active subscription and Conquest potions can be used by all accounts.
  • The realm abilities Empty Mind and Bedazzling Aura have been changed as follows:
    • They now co-exist and stack with all class-based secondary magic resistance abilities
    • They now co-exist and stack with all long-duration secondary magic resistance item /uses
    • They now overwrite or are overwritten by all short-duration secondary magic resistance item /uses and procs, based on the highest value.
      • Short-duration magic resistance item /uses and procs are defined as those lasting 30 seconds or less in duration and involve the following items' spells:
        • Loyalty Cloaks' "Repel Magic" /use (15s duration)
        • Astral and Hallowed Cloak of Heroes' "Shroud of Protection" /use (20s duration)
        • Freezing/Unyielding/Howling/Shrouded Brutalizer Vests' "Skin of the Brute" proc (7s duration)
  • The following Cleric abilities in their Smiting specialialization should no longer disappear from their spell lists in certain scenarios. Please note that Clerics who currently do not have these abilities showing in their spell list may need to perform a respecialization to get them to reappear.
    • Virtuous, Heavenly, Rapturous, or Radiant Reflection
    • Helping, Healing, Light, Pure, or Holy Hand
    • Ascendance
  • The Assassin ability Overshadow has been changed to no longer fire on targets that are already Overshadowed or are under the Blanket of Camouflage Spymaster's Master Level ability.
  • Dark Ingolf's barrier in Midgard's Dragon Curse Campaign 9.1 encounter should no longer cause caster damage to go into the negative. This should alleviate aggro-control issues.
  • The Champion Level damage add ability, Force of the Abyss is no longer overwritten and always overwrites other damage add abilities. Users wishing to receive a higher value damage add ability must manually shift+right-click remove the Force of Abyss ability now.
  • The recently revamped weapons found in Stonehenge Barrows, Spindelhalla, and Coruscating Mines have had their spell power levels reduced from 42 to 39.
    • The Smoldering Sable Flagellum whip has had its DPS corrected to match the other weapons at 15.6 DPS.
  • The Cape of the Pictish Hero can now be emblemized.

Live Hot Fix

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 May 03 10:45 -0400 GMT

We'll be extending the Rites of Spring event and realm point bonuses until May 14th as a thank you for your patience and understanding with the recent downtimes.

And with that, the following notes are now live!

  • Character spell effects should no longer disappear randomly after playing for a certain time.
    • Please note that players currently in-game will need to exit and run their patcher to get this fix.
  • Hibernia's Dragon Curse Campaign Chapter 9.1 encounter has been adjusted as follows:
    • The flame mechanic has been removed.
    • Players must now defeat Hurgundhu prior to Lady Kharis.
  • Hitpoint and Armor Factor /use items have been changed to be consistent across the board; this affects the following two items specifically:
    • Band of the Dream Conqueror's Triumphant Aura and Traldor's Oracle's Traldor's Aura abilities now co-exist but do not stack with other item-based HP/AF buffs.
      • With this change, ALL item-based HP/AF buffs stack with the class-based HP/AF buffs now.
      • This also changes the abilities on these items to no longer drop when unequipped.
  • Players attempting to enter the throne rooms in each capital city will no longer see a dialogue window telling them they must have the Darkness Rising expansion to enter.
  • The Shades of Mist artifact should no longer occassionally give players a "too far away" message when /used.

    • The target bonus level for these weapons is now around level 35, instead of levels 20-25.
    • Weapons with %damage and %range bonuses are now applied vs all targets.
    • More weapon options have been added to cover all classes.
  • Several issues in the Stonehenge Barrows dungeon have been fixed:
    • All associated quests now have the proper "[Barrows]" prefix.
    • High Priestess Ywera's remains now only drop from High Priestess Ywera.
    • Albino Grugner now has a chance to drop accessories and weapons like the other named bosses in the dungeon.

A huge thank you to all of the dedicated players who contributed their information and data to help us resolve this insidious issue!
