Breach Event: The Mazes

Posted by Community | 2023 Jul 07 13:36 -0400 GMT
Adventurers around the ruins of the old maze are vanishing and scouting parties sent to investigate the ruins of other realms have not returned. We fear a larger evil is brewing deep within, and demons have found another way to enter our lands. Threats to our worlds must be crushed!


Adventurers should speak with the following NPC's to receive two new quests:
  • Albion: Lady Idris in Catterick Hamlet
  • Hibernia: Yda Llonwy in Crair Treflan
  • Midgard: Fathor in Godrborg
Harvesting Crystals

Harvest the crystals that have appeared at the ruins of the old mazes across the realms.

This quest is repeatable and awards 5,000 Bounty Points and 500 Realm Points (affected by bonuses) per turn in.

Further Breaches

The evil on Ellan Vannin has been halted, but the demons persist on trying to enter our world. Defeat these threats at the ancient maze ruins! 

This is a daily quest and is a Battlegroup encounter. Completing the quest by defeating all three mobs awards you with 10,000 Realm Points (affected by bonuses) and a useable crate which will provide one of the following:
  • Various Trophies
  • Realm Point Bonus Pots
  • Recently Added Extended Potions
  • Wares from Dungeons of Old
Note: the quest mobs will not give previous quest credits or drops. The rewards also have a very small chance to drop Catacombs bows.

The Breach mini event will run until Tuesday July 25th, 2023.

Have you or your friends been thinking of coming back to Dark Age of Camelot? Or are you a veteran player just looking for a change of pace!? Now is a great time to return home to DAoC!

Our 7th Catch Up In Caledonia event begins today, Monday, March 6th at 3 PM EST / 9 PM CET!

Read on for the full details!

What is Catch Up in Caledonia?


It's a way to start fresh and rapidly progress to the end-game with players around your level!

The 7-day long event that will take place entirely in the Realm vs Realm-enabled Caledonia battleground zone.

Players will start at level 1 and rapidly progress to level 50 all while earning gear, master levels, champion levels, and realm ranks along the way!

By event's end participants will be ready to compete in the Frontier!



When does the event start and end?


The event starts precisely at 3 PM EST / 9 PM CET on Monday, March 6th a nd will end at 3 PM EST / 9 PM CET time on Monday, March 13th.



How does the event work?


  • For the first 4 days of the event, newly created level 1 characters will be automatically zoned into the Caledonia battleground where they will vie for control against the enemy realms!
    • This will be the ONLY way to get inside the battleground zone. Once inside, characters can voluntarily leave but CANNOT return!
    • All monsters, center-keep guards, and siege weapons are removed for the event. The only way to progress is by defeating realm enemies in battle and completing the related quests.
    • Charm-pet classes will be able to create a pet to charm at their realm's portal keep.
  • ​At 3 PM EST / 9 PM CET on Friday, March 10th, character starting locations will reset to their default zones and no new characters will be able to join the event. Everyone still inside Caledonia will be able to continue progressing for the remainder of the event's duration.
  • Experience, bounty, and realm point bonuses will be granted to both free and subscribed accounts in the battleground to help them progress!
  • Earn bounty points for completing quests and defeating enemy realm players and use them to purchase level-appropriate gear as you strive to 50 and then master and champion levels!
  • All characters will begin and remain in the same Caledonia zone for the entirety of the event.
    • The following level caps will be in place for all characters in Caledonia and will increase as follows every 24 hours:
      • Day 1 (Monday): Level 19 maximum
      • Day 2 (Tuesday): Level 29 
      • Day 3 (Wednesday): Level 39 
      • Day 4 (Thursday) : Level 49
      • Days 5-7 (Fri-Mon): Level 50
    • Characters that reach the day's level cap will still be able to earn realm and bounty points.
  • Characters that are 5 levels or more below the day's level cap will receive the Caledonia Boost buff.
    • This buff greatly increases the damage dealt and greatly reduces damage received from characters that do not have the buff (higher level characters)!
    • Characters with the Caledonia Boost buff active will also DOUBLE the XP and BP rewards for themselves and their group!
    • When the level cap reaches 49 the buff will be given out to characters 3 or more levels under the cap.
  • Overwhelming Force system:
    • There is no overwhelming force enabled for this current event.


How far will I be able to progress?


Players that start at the beginning of the event should be able to reach level 50, Champion level 15, Master level 10, and Realm Rank 5+ with the potential to earn much higher realm ranks! Characters will also be able to earn enough bounty points to not only obtain gear as they progress towards level 50 but also to use for end-game gear via Bountycrafting after reaching level 50!


We'll see you on the battlefields of Caledonia!
