"Warriors! The Ritual Site locations and the Weaver Cave that were cleansed in recent days, have regained their former strength... We ask for your bravery once again. My great warriors, please hear me! Vanquish these vile creatures! Do not allow them to encroach on our lands!"

~Sir Jeffrey the Justiciar of Britain

Warriors, rejoice! The Colosseum has moved to its new and permanent location, an island just outside of Buccaneer's Den. While it will be used for PVP server events, it is also intended to be a general use area for consensual, non-faction PVP. Thus, the following rules will take effect in the area after the next restart:

  1. Combat and murder actions will not flag as criminal on the island. You will not receive murder counts on the island.
  2. If a red is killed on the island, their next immediate resurrection will be free. Short term murder counts will not reset, and the free res does not apply if you were killed anywhere but on the island.
  3. You cannot mark runes at or recall to the island. Teleporters are up at Britain Bank and Buccaneer's Den moongate.

Full loot is in effect on the island, so tread lightly. For those brave enough, glorious combat awaits!

  • (QOL) Players that deliver the killing blow on a non-player mobile will automatically open the corpse backpack if they are within looting range.
  • (QOL) New Right-Click Mutilate ability on non-player corpses will allow corpse pile micro-management by forcefully removing body piles while keeping the lootable backpack via the CTRL function.
  • Using the Harvest ability before Mutilate is ideal, as Mutilate will now automatically open the corpse backpack too.
  • Mutilate will also leave a bloodstain in the place of the body.

After next restart, cut off heads should display the full resurrection value of the dead.

An issue with Stablemasters not detecting pets from outside the region you're in has been resolved but will require a server restart to take effect.

  • Missing when attacking in combat is now fixed
  • Not being able to split stacks is now fixed

Please log out and back in to the game to enable these fixes.

  • Fixed an issue with being able to apply poison from a potion that has been moved outside of your inventory
  • Prevented CAPTCHA from occurring too often while harvesting
  • Removed mobs from spawning while harvesting due to CAPTCHA being enabled

Critizens of Britannia, be warned! An increased Orc presence has been observed in our lands. These savage creatures know no limit to their ferocity and evil. But fear ye not! Your Brave and Courageous leaders are maintaining the guard around the clock, keeping the Orc scourge out of our city walls and your children safe from their barbarism.

[The Orc Guild has now been fully enabled. Players wishing to join the Orc Guild must seek out and contact a member of the guild]

  • Camping bugs were fixed and the time it takes to build the different stages of the campfire and tent/tent upgrades have been reduced slightly.
  • A Teleporter has been added on top of Brit Bank roof to allow players to leave the roof if they lack the ability to teleport down from the roof.
  • Added New Character Settings for Toggling Auto-Open of Killing Blow/Mutilate/Harvest under Combat Options.
  • Players can no longer create Camps while inside Guard Protected towns.
  • Fixed an issue causing non young players being warned about losing their young status.
  • Rare loot table adjustments.
