    Great guides.

    I would suggest adding a link to the Returning Players Guide that discusses how to install the game and how to transfer from the archived servers to Ywain. Some of the info on the guide is a bit dated but it can still be of help to returning players

    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.

    Saving Midwinter



    This is for the Mindwinter Medal of Honor.

    My delivery of toys and goodies has been stolen, and is now in the possession of various mighty beasts in dangerous regions of the realm! I’ve sent the Krampus out after them, but he’s not exactly… good at bringing joy and cheer. I fear that Midwinter shall be very disappointing for a lot of people if we do not reclaim them.

    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).

    1.114 Review



    I have taken the patch notes, illustrated and commented on them and tried to list the stats for the accessories. There are too many pieces of armor and weapons to list them really without cracking out my item tool.

    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.

    Unfortunately, this link no longer works, and Chrome gives a happy malware warning when attempting to visit camelotvault.ign.com, so I wonder if the site was hacked and subsequently nuked by IGN.

    Thanks for the guides, they helped. Would maybe be helpful for a little more detail on exact steps to activating an artifact. Was a but confusing with the scrolls, finally figuring out how to combine scrolls, who exactly to turn them in to and stuff but i got through it with a little help

    It would be really cool to have a guide for the Azure quests/factions in Sheeroe Hills, and then of course for the other realms in their areas. Leading up to and finishing out killing the dragons in NF.

    Might want to run a Virus scan on the sites hosting these links. AVG just popped for one on the RP increase link.

    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...

    Default old guilds

    I was either already a guild leader or defaulted to one on all three realms. My alb guild was my original. The hib one, I'm not sure if it still exists anywhere and my Mid guild was still there when I logged in the first time.

    First question about The Fianna (I think that is the spelling) originally on Tristan (which one of the E's I think was a leader) is, was that guild successfully transfered to Ywain? I couldn't find it on the char/guild search. Maybe cuz I misspelled the name?

    Second, my original kin was passed to me a long time ago. I lost internet connection and could only get email on a friends computer. I saw my guilds dump me as leader one by one through emails and just felt a little sad. Nothing I could do.

    Third question is what do I do about a kin that I can't get enough people for to restart. My mid guild lost its house before there were any transfers but that was just our, "Lets do something different" guild. This one I did pack up for transfer. I tried to get people to stop what they were doing and assist me but the 8 person rule is sad to me for what was once a small guild in the first place. There is no shortcut for retrieving an old guild?

    Last, where did the guild registrars go? Nobody seems to think it unusual for help to tell them where to find the guild registrars on all three realms to find the NPC that are supposed to be there are gone?

    Oh one last thing. My alb guild, my original, was taken over by someone I don't know. I think when I lost internet there was one other guy in the kin. Anyone in the guild could have returned and been given 0 rank due to being online at the right time. But I don't think it is even active enough for me to ask someone to invite me into the guild. Is there a grace period for being inactive before you can get a guild back, or start up a guild with the same name?
    At this point in the game's life can we get rid of the 8 person requirement? I hearken back to the Team Wizzy days when Jay claimed 3 keeps in NF because he could move his accts around and make enough guilds to do pretty much anything. He probably could have owned hib if he wanted to... ok maybe just the port-in keeps.

    Please help me Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.
