RvR Buggane's Obelisk and Daily Quest Hot Fix

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Jul 21 15:52 -0400 GMT
We're excited to announce the following changes!

Buggane's Obelisk
 
  • Buggane's Obelisk will now rotate its locations in conjunction with the rotating daily bonus quest's location.
    • This means if the daily bonus quest from the General is located in Albion's Brough Ruins (Alb Maze) for the day, Buggane's Obelisk will spawn there as well.
      • This does mean that if the obelisk is up in 1 location, it is down in all other locations.
      • Ellan Vannin will no longer have the obelisk up unless the daily rotating quest is also in Ellan Vannin.
    • When the quest changes at 12:01 EST each night, Buggane's Obelisk location will change too!
    • Speak with General Kogis, General Bruki, or General Vegda in each realm's relic town and they will also tell you where Buggane's is located (along with aligning with their rotating quest that day).
      • Realm ownership of Buggane's Obelisk will still show in the /realm window regardless of where Buggane's Obelisk is currently located.
  • Buggane's Obelisk once again awards a bonus to realm points in addition to its bonus to bounty points and coin earned.
    • Its bonus amounts still scale as follows based on realm rank:
      • Realm Rank 1L1 - 3L9: 75% bonus to RP/BP/Coin
      • Realm Rank 4L0 - 5L9: 50% bonus to RP/BP/Coin
      • Realm Rank 6L0 - 7L9: 25% bonus to RP/BP/Coin
      • Realm Rank 8L0+: 15% bonus to RP/BP/Coin
    • Its duration is still 2 hours and lasts through death and logout; however, it no longer lasts after zoning out of the frontiers.
  • Siege weapons are not allowed within 850 units of the obelisk.
Daily Quests
 
  • The quest [Daily] The Solo Road has had its kill requirements reduced from 20 to 10. Its reward remains unchanged.
    • We recommend visiting the General in each realm's relic town to get the new version of this quest if you have more than 10 kills remaining on it currently.
    • All other daily quests remain unchanged.

RvR Daily Quest Hot Fix

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Jul 19 11:10 -0400 GMT
Some quick tweaks to the new RvR daily quests have been made as follows:
  • [Daily] Roaming with Friends: reduced from 75 to 25 enemy realm players killed while in open-field areas.
    • Still rewards 15,000 realm points for completion.
  • [Daily] For the realm: reduced from 50 to 25 enemy realm players killed inside an under-siege keep's area.
    • Still rewards 15,000 realm points for completion.
  • [Daily] The Solo Road: increased from 15 to 20 enemy realm players killed while solo.
    • Still rewards 15,000 realm points for completion.
    • Any deathblow on an enemy player while solo will count towards this quest's credit.
  • The rotating daily quests have all had their enemy kills reduced from 50 to 25.
    • These quests still reward 25,000 realm points for completion.
If you have these quests currently, you may need to re-vist the General in each realm's relic town to get the updated quest. Of course, if your quest is already closer than 25 or 20 kills (respectively) to completion then we'd recommend not doing so.

Official Item Database Download

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Jul 05 17:43 -0400 GMT

As promised, here is our Official Item Database download

Web developers or software programmers can utilize the database's .json format to create valuable template-building and item search tools or convert it to a file type that works with existing tools' item databases. While we will be offering an item search tool on the new website at some point after it launches, this downloadable database is meant to bridge the gap until then and provide an up to date database of the game's equipment!

Please note: this Item Database contains data only on equippable items (armor, jewelry, and weapons) and is not meant for non-equippable items.

Test Sever Downtime - Pendragon Patch 1.123B

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Jun 28 12:52 -0400 GMT
Pendragon is open for testing!

The Pendragon test server will be coming down tomorrow, June 29th, at 2:00 PM EST / 7:00 PM GMT to deliver patch 1.123B to Pendragon!

Read below and click the button for the full notes!

Highlights


  • The new Mithril currency and shop is here!
  • Use the new Patterns to change your look without sacrificing your stats!
  • Class improvements and changes based on your 1.123A feedback abound, including some pet adjustments, hybrid class changes, and more!
 

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!
