The server is now offline for updates. We will post again when it is coming back online. Thanks for your patience!
Today, 06/19/2019, at 4am CST/9am UTC, we will be adding some updates to the server. The downtime may last up to 1 hour. Patch notes soon to follow.
Ents have begun a crusade out of the Black Forest and are encroaching on Britain by way of Hunter's Brae. Led by an Ent Lord, these Ents are not to be trifled with alone.
Guilds & Guild Wars:
The availability of Nightmares, Firesteeds, Brood mothers and a few other tameables have been adjusted/decreased. You will find that some of these creatures have also found a new home.
Additionally, small balance tweaks have been made to dungeons across the land.
Faction Tower in Upper Plains should now be on a correct 2 hour respawn. The buff should now display the 25% bonus properly, pending restart for the buff display.
New Faction Stones in towns!!
First test stone is in Moonglow close to the inn.
If two players of the same faction, and only of that single faction, stand in a circle of roughly a bow's range for 3 minutes the stone will trigger. The faction that triggered it must then keep at least 2 players inside the circle for 10 minutes, regardless of how many other faction are present, unlike for the trigger part where only 2+ of a single faction need to hold for 3 minutes. After the 10 minutes the winning faction players in a large radius (4x bow range) around the stone will get a 14% glory buff for 2 hours. This does not stack with the buff from the towers.
1- 2+ of a faction and ONLY that faction in stone range for 3+ minutes = Stone Triggered, system wide message to call other factions.
2- 2+ of the faction that triggered the stone in stone range for 10+ minutes = Stone Claimed
3- Buff given and faction vendor spawned for 2 hours
NOTE: for now the faction leader spawns in it's place. We will add vendors that sell faction gear for twice the favor compared to crafting them and will add new means of gaining favor.
Please leave us feedback on the new Faction Stone mechanic so we can add new ones to most towns.
