PC Grab Bag - Friday October 25th!

Oct 25, 2013 - 10:01 AM - by Card



Welcome to the 4th edition of the Postcount.net & Mythic Grab Bag!

Thank you to everyone who sent in questions and remember to keep sending them in using the submission form. Today we start off with a question about old world loot, and a possible solution:

The issue of "old world loot" being "crap" comes up on these boards from time to time and I'd like to throw a suggestion your way and see if it sticks. Could you create and special quest NPC that offers to turn old world loot into something valuable?
Example: You interact with the QLE (Quest Loot Exchange) NPC and he tells you that he is a collector of rare magical items and he is distressed that his collection is missing Askafroa's Chain Hauberk. If you are willing to retrieve it then he will give you something in exchange for it.
So you find and kill Askafroa (a non-trivial task even in this day) until you get Askafroa's Chain Hauberk. Turn it in and you get some sort of reward. Perhaps a powerful item appropriate to you race and class or just money or a non-tradable XP scroll... you get the idea.


Talal: To say that this would require a significant amount of work would be an understatement. The effort would be primarily in classifying and valuating basically all the ‘old loot’ in the game. Beyond that, simply giving plat or XP scrolls for what has now become 12 years of stockpiled and very easily accessible loot would be…a little bit devastating to our economy and player progression.
I absolutely understand the line of thinking, but I’m afraid that a solution implemented in this way would do more harm to the game as a whole than it would benefit any given player.
However, don’t give up! We appreciate the suggestion and would like to hear more. If you have additional suggestions about how we can make older items more viable, by all means submit them via feedback!
It looks like they could still use a few more ideas on what to do with old world loot. If this topic has sparked your brain, and you have an idea, it is highly encouraged that you submit feedback about it!

In thanks for all your questions, we're giving away 5 DAoC 1 month timecodes to 5 random people who had questions answered! The questions answered were numbered 1-11 (including Talal's answer on old world loot) and randomized. We then used random.org to pick 5 numbers and the people who's question matched those random numbers won a timecode.

So congrats to the winners, please PM beibhinn for your code! Timecodes not collected within a month of winning will go back into the reward pool for another Grab Bag.

A Sinister Moon Rises!

Oct 17, 2013 - 9:00 AM - by beibhinn
October is here once again and that means haunted cities, costumes, and candy for the Realms and of course… the Pumpkin Moon!

Festivities begin Thursday October 17, 2013 and will conclude Tuesday November 5 2013.

Follow the jump for a list of all the activities happening this year:




  • The Ghostly Harvest Quest offers players level 45 and up a dangerous adventure in the frontiers. Speak with John Tobin on the Cotswold Bridge, Foa Muldisson outside the Jordheim North Gates, or Nera by the road in Mag Mell to begin the quest. (Note: Players who completed this quest last year will now be offered it again.)
  • Treat sellers have been spotted selling sugary confections inside Meath, Erikstaad, and Caerwent.
  • The consignment merchants would like to show you their Halloween spirit! Pick up the merchant and place it back down on your house porch and he will change into a Halloween outfit for you!
  • Be aware adventurers! Ghosts haunt the streets of your capital cities as the pumpkin moon rises! Ghosts have also been spotted in Mag Mell, Aegirhamn, and Campacorentin Station.
  • The horses you once rode have joined the spirit realm. (This affects stable and merchant horses only - not player controlled horses.)
  • Something strange has happened to all of the puppies.
  • The pumpkins have been carved into jack o' lanterns!
  • A trio of crazy old women have been spotted selling costume potions inside Camelot, Jordheim, and Tir na Nog.
    • The costume potions last 15 minutes each and come in a variety of flavors.
    • The costume potions work best if you remove your helm and armor.
    • You cannot digest another costume potion if you are transformed into any of the monster forms.
    • The costume potions' magics are short-lived and the potions will be useless after the festivities end so don't horde them.
    • Some of the costume potions allow you to take the form of the enemy, so don't be scared if you see some in your capital city or housing zones, it's just your realm mates playing dress up!
    • The costumes and potions only work while you are in the capital cities or housing zones. You cannot use them outside of these zones and if you leave the zone while in costume, you will lose the effect.
    • As always, the days before, during, and after Halloween these potions can be used in RvR (With Exception to Pixies, and ghosts potions, which are not usable in the frontiers ever)

PC Grab Bag - Friday October 11th!

Oct 11, 2013 - 10:01 AM - by Card



Welcome to the 3rd edition of the Postcount.net & Mythic Grab Bag!

Thank you to everyone who sent in questions and remember to keep sending them in using the submission form. In addition to the answers below, Mythic were asked about upcoming events, such as the Halloween Quest. Here's what John had for us on that:

Could we get some info on the next set of events planned? Halloween quest? Infernal merchant tents perhaps?

John: Halloween event is just around the corner. We’ll then be capping the final piece of the Pict event at or just after the NF revamp. Once the dust has settled around that we’ll begin a brand new long-term event and quest line in addition to the usual seasonal events we do. And yes, we’ll do the Infernal Merchants again, but probably not until next year.

In thanks for all your questions, we're giving away 5 DAoC 1 month timecodes to 5 random people who had questions answered! The questions answered were numbered 1-11 (including John's answer on events) and randomised. We then used random.org to pick 5 numbers and the people who's question matched those random numbers won a timecode.

So congrats to the winners, please PM beibhinn for your code! Timecodes not collected within a month of winning will go back into the reward pool for another Grab Bag.
