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.

 

The Rites of Spring Event, Bonuses, and Ghost Keep Changes

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Apr 14 10:46 -0400 GMT
Update: The Ghost Keep event and Ellan Vannin portal ceremony, Buggane's Obelisk buff, and keep changes will remain in effect until patch 1.123 when permanent solutions will be addressed.

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 onto Ellan Vannin. The Kings of the Realms have placed a bounty on this beast for any who wish to drive the menace out of their lands and to collect the coveted Gem of the Harbinger!

Additionally, we have the following changes to the Ghost Keep event to announce and of course, some RvR bonuses for you!

The Rites of Spring event and these bonuses will continue through Monday, May 1st.

St. Patrick's Day Event

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Mar 16 14:22 -0400 GMT
Are you feeling lucky?

In celebration of St. Patrick's Day and running from now until Monday, March 20th, our second annual 'Leprechaun Treasure' quest is on!  

To get the quest, level 50s should pay the following poor souls a consoling visit:

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 in dangerous lands and ancient ruins. Enjoy some zany RvR through the weekend!
  • The ROG reward is a choice between a ring or a bracer similar to the Valentine's Day event with some slight differences. These ROGs will only allow up to 5 slots for stats but will also have 1 of 6 possible /uses.
 
      
 
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, the event will run until Monday, March 20th.

A happy and safe St. Patrick's Day to one and all, and we'll see you in the Frontiers!

The Last Breath

Posted by Development | 2017 Mar 13 07:56 -0400 GMT

They say that when you take the last breath of life, that you go to a better place. This a false promise. To them, I am what the Creator is to us. I am a being of the light, of hope, of a greater promise. I am what they once were and with their callowness, what they wish to be again.

But it is thanks to them that I am telling you this now. For even in the darkest hour of the night sky, there are infinite shining stars. So it is true with them, too, as they have proven to me. In the sea of death there is yet still a soul. This changes everything, the very foundation of us all. Perhaps the Northmen were right. Or the Elves. Or all of us, in some way. Perhaps our King is still too out there, in the darkness. Watching us, protecting us, fighting a war that we do not know exists.

The stars have shown me. The heir of mighty Gol
estandt has awoken deep beneath Albion. Sleeping for years, protected by the darkness. We have been careless without our King. Too distracted by the Ice and the Forest, we have ignored the evil. We must end this dragon before it grows. Before it becomes more powerful than its father. Before it has an army of darkness.

And as such, we must venture once again into the deepest, darkest burrows of the underworld; which we vowed to never return to again. But this time, we will not go alone.

The stars will guide us in the night sky for as long as they can. With their light, we must shine brighter than ever; for the darkness of death is coming.
