The Harbinger of Spring Returns to Killaloe!

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Mar 30 10:10 -0400 GMT

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 into the Battleground of Killaloe once more. It has devoured the Keep Lord of Dun Killaloe and has taken up residence on its roof, awaiting fresh prey. The Kings of the Realms have placed a bounty on this beast, and have dispatched Channelers to the Borderkeeps of Castle Sauvage, Svasud Faste, and Druim Ligen to offer passage to any who wish to drive this menace out of Killaloe and collect the coveted Gem of the Harbinger!

The Killaloe Battleground Event will begin this morning, Monday, March 30th and conclude in the morning on Friday, April 3rd. Following the Battleground Event, the Rites of Spring quest will be activated in the Frontiers on Ywain.

On Gaheris, the normal Rites of Spring event has been activated!
