A Ghostly Incursion begins...

Posted by John Thornhill | 2020 Feb 20 11:01 -0500 GMT

           


Ghost Keep Event


Update: The Dynamic Keep Channelers at Caer Berkstead, Nottmoor Faste, and Dun Crimthainn that can teleport players into the inner keep of their respective keeps will now spawn when their Ghost Keep Lord is active AND the keep is actively under siege (flames on the realmwar map). 
 
  • 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 ghost keep has been triggered by a realm, the 'supply' phase ends for all three realms 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 and bounty points for completing the tasks throughout each phase of the event!
  • A successfully summoned ghostly keep lord will offer the Ring of the Summoned reward, along with a quest for the Ghostly Medal of Valor!
    • Please note that players who have already completed the Ring of the Summoned quest can obtain another one or exchange their existing one for another at the ghostly keep lord.
    • Players who obtained the Ghostly Medal of Valor last year can obtain one more with this event.
  • For more in-depth information, our handy guide explains the phases of this event in detail!
  • The Ghost Keep event will be available until March 10th, 2020.

Friday Grab Bag - 02/14/2020

It's a Valentine's Day Grab Bag! Happy Valentine's Day, everyone :)

While the rest of us are out doing something special for our hunnies, Whitman the Imp has also been busy today and has managed to find himself something special that he's sure will melt even the heart of his scorned succubus love! Avenge him for Lady Payne and steal his gift for your someone special instead! Or yourself, no judgement.

Developer's note: Players that have already killed Whitman and completed the 'A Matter of the Heart' quest will need to kill Whitman again to receive his One Time Drop gift. The 'A Matter of the Heart' quest is not needed to receive the OTD for anyone. Limit one per character and the gift is tradable.

Dynamic Population Bonuses Return

Posted by John Thornhill | 2020 Jan 14 15:12 -0500 GMT
Based on feedback we've received since the 1.126 patch, the Dynamic Population Bonus feature is active once again!

As a refresher, here's how the system works:


Dynamic Population Bonus


  • This system will reward underpopulated realms with bonus realm points to help offset and stabilize population imbalances.
  • The current bonus status will be displayed to players when viewing the realm selection screen and in-game on the /realmwar 'bonuses' window.

 
  • The dynamic population bonus is re-calculated every 15 minutes and only calculates based on the number of players within the New Frontiers region.
  • The bonus amounts are as follows:
    • 81-90% population of most populated realm: +10% RPs
    • 71-80% population of most populated realm: +25% RPs
    • 61-70% population of most populated realm: +40% RPs
    • 51-60% population of most populated realm: +55% RPs
    • 41-50% population of most populated realm: +70% RPs
    • 31-40% population of most populated realm: +85% RPs
    • 0-30% population of the most populated realm: +100% RPs
  • These bonuses will stack with all other bonuses!

Account Center Update - View Characters

A list of that account's characters will then load, organized by server and including realm, class, and character level:
