6th Nov 2021 patchnote

Fixed an issue causing the invasion spawn to over-spawn after a server crash


6th Nov 2021 patchnote

The Headless Horseman Boss from town invasions:

  • is now exempt from Group Loot (automatic loot sharing between groupmates)
  • will now have a chance to give loot directly to participants that have done at least 1% damage to the boss, including damage from pets or summons (items will go directly to players backpacks)
  • has had its on-corpse loot reduced in lieu of the direct-to-player loot


6th Nov 2021 knownissue

Recently some people have reported the long-standing issue of items getting stuck to your cursor. This client issue has been around since the beginning of time sadly. We've reported the issue to Citadel Studios for resolution and are at their mercy to have the root cause fixed.

As a workaround, we've enabled the /itemstuck command to help you get out of this situation. Using the command will check for an item on your cursor and try to move it to the backpack. If it doesn't fit into the backpack, then you will be prompted to move it to your internal pocket that only a Gamemaster can retrieve for you at a later time.

If you log out with an item on the cursor, the item will also attempt to be moved to your backpack, or if it does not fit it will be dropped to the ground.

Please Note: Once this issue starts happening, every item you pickup will become stuck, so it is required to log out in order to resolve it.

4th Nov 2021 patchnote

All Town/Faction Stones have had their states reset again. We believe we have fixed the root cause of the ongoing sigil issues, but ask once more for you all to give it a go! Timers are all once again set at one hour so it will be easy to test. You may still recall with the stone for the moment.

Global messages still need some tweaking.


2nd Nov 2021 patchnote

An item called the Skull of Hallows Eve has been added to the Halloween Candy vendor. This item will allow you to activate the Cove invasion spawn at the Black Gate in North Cove. The spawn requires 6 players total to start it, so you will need 5 other players to be near the spawn with you when trying to activate, only one skull is needed per invasion. There is a 2-hour cooldown between spawns and the encounter needs to be finished within 4 hours or it will deactivate and reset automatically. The spawn will be available until Nov 8th. Looting Rights is now skipped for the ending boss as well.


1st Nov 2021 patchnote

A Faction store has been added to town stones- usable when your faction controls a town. This store is used to spend your personal silver on items for yourself. Currently two items are for sale, and more will be added soon:

  • Faction Cloak - a blessed black cloak

Additional sigil capture bugs have been squashed as well. More to come!
