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.

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.

The Ghost Keep RvR Event and Hot Fix Notes

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Apr 06 08:40 -0400 GMT
A ghostly incursion has begun in the Frontiers...

           
 
  • Members of each realm should make haste to their ghostly ambassador to strengthen their realm's cause:
    • Albion - See the Ancient Paladin in the Catterick Hamlet relic town
    • Midgard - See the Ancient Thane in the Godrborg relic town
    • Hibernia - See the Ancient Champion in the Crair Treflan relic town
  • Players should ask the 'Ancient' NPCs for a [progress] report to be directed to the current task at hand.
    • These NPCs offer two quests during the 'supply' phase of the event that can only be obtained and completed during that phase.
    • Once a 'summoning' phase has been started by a realm, the 'supply' phase ends for all three realms and these NPCs will direct players to defend or attack the appropriate Ghostly Summoner.
    • Once a ghostly keep lord has been called forth, the 'summoning' phase ends and these NPCs will direct players to defend or attack the appropriate ghostly keep lord!
    • Be sure to visit this NPC at each phase to ensure you pick up any available quests.
  • Earn extra realm points for completing the tasks throughout each phase of the event!
  • A successfully summoned ghostly keep lord will offer the new Ring of the Summoned reward, along with a quest to players that pay them a visit!
  • Earn the new Ghostly Medal of Valor for successfully defending your realm's ghostly keep lord long enough for them to grant a new task!
  • For more in-depth information, a handy guide can be found here that explains the phases of this event in detail!
                  
 
The following RvR changes are now live for the duration of this event! Depending on feedback, some or all of these changes could become permanent.

  • The ruined keeps of Caer Benowyc, Bledmeer Faste, and Dun Crauchon, along with their towers, have been restored to a normal, non-ruined state.
    • These keeps will still only have two towers instead of three.
    • Please note that they will still appear as "ruined" on the /realmwar map for the remainder of the event.
    • The 'Resource Crates' for the Supplies for the Cause quest remain inside the now non-ruined keeps. They are also still available on Ellan Vannin.
  • The Buggane's Obelisk buff now only awards characters bonus bounty points and coin and no longer awards bonus realm points. This is to encourage players to participate in the event and mainland RvR more.
  • The portal ceremony in each realm's relic town has been disabled. This is to encourage players to participate in the event and mainland RvR more.
The Ghost Keep event will run until Monday, April 24th *at least* and depending on feedback, may run until patch 1.123!
