A Ghostly Incursion begins...

Posted by John Thornhill | 2021 Jun 15 14:46 -0400 GMT

With the Doppelganger Invasion quelled the ghostly champions of the realms make their return!
 
  • The Doppelganger Invasion quest and traveling merchants are no longer available.
  • Any remaining Invader coins will be removed upon login.
  • The Ghost Keep event has begun and will last until July 6th!
  • RvR bonuses will remain through the duration of the Ghost Keep event!

           


Ghost Keep Event


  • 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.
  • The Dynamic Keep Channelers at Caer Berkstead, Nottmoor Faste, and Dun Crimthainn that can teleport players into the inner keep of their respective keeps make their return for the event.
    • The channelers will spawn when their Ghost Keep Lord is active AND the keep is actively under siege (flames on the realmwar map).
  • For more in-depth information, our handy guide explains the phases of this event in detail!
  • The Ghost Keep event will be available until July 6th, 2021.
  • Current RvR bonuses will remain until July 6th, 2021.
