3 Realms, 7 Questions, 5 Winners...1 Grab Bag!

Posted by Community | 2014 Jun 20 19:35 -0400 GMT

Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of the Dark Age of Camelot Grab Bag! Sir Grabford is still in Carol's dungeon for his theft of her last Grab Bag, so he will not be availble for questions today. The good news is that your good friends on the Dark Age of Camelot Team are!

For your chance to win a 30 Day Game Time Code, please submit your Grab Bag questions to or via PostCount using the following link:

Q: Things are being worked on. God bless. But is there anyway we could see what you are working on and your priority list are at todays game ?

A: On the horizon are a few initiatives which will broaden the communication between Broadsword and our players. Basic information given through, say, the Grab Bag can be informative – but it’s not always the best way to communicate our vision and progress. We are looking forward to providing video patch notes, dev diaries, and interviews/Q & A with the Dev team so that you can receive important information on a more frequent basis!

In Albion: Just outside of gates of Castle Sauvage in Camelot Hills
In Midgard: Just outside of Svasud Faste in the Vale of Mularn

Today marks the conclusion of our Agramon Tower event. As you know, this change to the New Frontiers was implemented as a temporary event in order to observe and measure how the change would impact action in NF. Should the change be approved as a permanent change, it will return with patch 1.115b.

Agramon Tower Event Update

Posted by Development | 2014 May 30 12:38 -0400 GMT
The Agramon Tower event went live a week ago today, and in that time we have received positive feedback. The common sentiment is that the portal towers on Agramon are improving the ability for players to move through the Frontiers and find action faster.

Inside the Grab Bag's Studio

Posted by Community | 2014 May 16 17:23 -0400 GMT

My noble friends and realm mates:

Sir Grabford Bagsworth here with a special treat for you! This week’s Grab Bag will be an interview with a most popular, sophisticated, and impressive gentleman.  ME!  I’ve locked myself in a tower, the table is set, I look dashing, the wine is flowing, and I will be conversing with a mirror.

I had best begin – Carol is attempting to siege down the door and yelling something about me being "intoxicated" and "crazy".

‘Sorry Carol, maybe if you spent less time stalking players and more time leveling Bruiser you wouldn’t have had your Grab Bag stolen!’

Ahem. Pardon the interruption. Click the ‘More’ link to read my interview! 

More Hotfixes!

  • Fixed an issue which was preventing specialty ammunition from being used in all siege weapons
  • Fixed an issue which was preventing the Portal Ceremony from firing at the appropriate intervals
  • Reduced the agro range for Pict mobs on Ruined Keep roofs
