Catch Up in Caledonia Event

Posted by John Thornhill | 2021 Feb 28 19:02 -0500 GMT
Have you or your friends been thinking of coming back to Dark Age of Camelot? Or are you a veteran player just looking for a change of pace!?

Join us this Friday, March 5th for your chance to start fresh and rapidly progress to the end-game with players around your level!

What is Catch Up in Caledonia?


A10-day long event that will take place entirely in the Realm vs Realm-enabled Caledonia battleground zone.

Players will start at level 1 and rapidly progress to level 50 all while earning gear, master levels, champion levels, and realm ranks along the way!

By the event's end participants will be ready to competitively RvR in the Frontier!


When does the event start and end?


The event starts precisely at 4 PM EST / 9 PM GMT on Friday, March 5th  a nd will end on Monday, March 15th.


How does the event work?


  • For the first 3 days of the event, newly created level 1 characters will be automatically zoned into the Caledonia battleground where they will vie for control against the enemy realms!
    • This will be the ONLY way to get inside the battleground zone. Once inside, characters can voluntarily leave but CANNOT return!
    • All monsters, center-keep guards, and siege weapons are removed for the event. The only way to progress is by defeating realm enemies in battle and turning in related quests.
    • Charm-pet classes will be able to create a pet to charm at their realm's portal keep.
  • ​After the 3rd day, character starting locations will reset to their default zones and no new characters will be able to join the event. Everyone still inside Caledonia will be able to continue progressing for the remainder of the event's duration.
  • Experience, bounty, and realm point bonuses will be granted to both free and subscribed accounts in the battleground to help them progress!
  • Earn bounty points for completing quests and defeating enemy realm players and use them to purchase level-appropriate gear as you strive to 50 and then master and champion levels!
  • The battleground will use a mix of leveling caps and new instances to maintain populations throughout the event:
    • At Level 5, characters will automatically teleport to a new instance for levels 5-9.
    • At level 10, characters will automatically teleport to a new instance for levels 10+
    • The following level caps will be in place for all characters in Caledonia and will increase by 5 levels every 24 hours:
      • Day 1: Level 15 maximum
      • Day 2: Level 20 
      • Day 3: Level 25 
      • Day 4: Level 30
      • Day 5: Level 35
      • Day 6: Level 40
      • Day 7: Level 45
      • Days 8-10: Level 50
    • Characters that reach a level cap will not be able to earn realm points or experience until the level cap is increased but will still be able to complete quests and earn bounty points towards their gear and other progression goals.

How far will I be able to progress?


Players that start at the beginning of the event should be able to reach level 50, Champion level 15, Master level 10, and Realm Rank 5+ with the potential to earn much higher realm ranks! Characters will also be able to earn enough bounty points to not only obtain gear as they progress towards level 50 but also to use for end-game gear via Bountycrafting after reaching level 50!

Monthly Mithril Bonus Update

Posted by John Thornhill | 2021 Jan 07 17:13 -0500 GMT

We've retroactively corrected an issue preventing the new monthly mithril bonus from applying to certain subscribed accounts.

Any accounts that qualified for the bonus mithril (were actively subscribed on December 18th, 2020) and did not previously receive it should now see it in-game and will be properly rewarded going forward.

Please note that most subscribed accounts were already properly rewarded for this bonus mithril and will see no change in their mithril balances.
