    Okay I have a ton of stuff to get through for this Midwinter Festival, so here is the first guide I have popped out.

    Midwinter Tree of Albion



    Midwinter Tree of Albion is a repeatable level 35 quest only for the realm of Albion. Obtained from a NPC named Clara that is only available during the Midwinter Festival. It involves going into the frontiers close to the border keep and collecting a Midwinter Tree. You are rewarded with a choice of trees to put in or outside your personal or guild house.

    Artifacts List



    To compliment my existing guide to activating artifacts I have created an artifacts list, which tells you:
    - The artifact slot
    - some of the main abilities
    - the total cost of credit and book,
    - the book name (experienced frustration here first hand),
    - and the activation npc (also another frustration).

All players standing on the pad when the spell is cast will be transported to Caledonia without the need of an additional necklace.

    St. Patrick's Day



    Tim posted a notice on the herald announcing the St. Patrick's Day event. There is no indication about when this event will stop but considering St. Patricks day isn't until Sunday, March 17 all indications are that this is a 1 week to 2 week long event.


    See the article for the news announcement followed by screenshots from my run-through of the quest.

    Is there some kind of easy-to-use official (or not...) link advice for how an old account can actually get back to DAoC?

    I tried a few times, and with some error messages on/from EA which I was directed to, and their reply that Broadsword... etc...

    I would actually be happy to just join and make a new character after this last year of trying on/off and never getting any answers...

    For me, the few responses I got for a year or so seemed to indicate 'Go Away, you're either here already or will never be again!, we will never explain this plainly anywhere!!!'

    Cab anyone make a sticky for joining DAoC again? EA claimed that 'uh, oh, someone else runs that now, maybe talk to them?' And the links I found referred to EA...

    Ah hi, been a while since I've received any notifications from this forum. yeah Eaderbreca no longer runs a DAoC site, she might have a backup of the data and if so I'll try and re-host.

    If not, you could try your luck at using the web archive, for example: http://web.archive.org/web/201412200...sential-items/
