Pendragon is up! Welcome to 1.93a:


Dark Age of Camelot
Test Version 1.93a Release Notes
Tutorial and Mastery of Stealth Changes
February 28, 2008



- Crafting - Players may notice several new recipes in their Spellcrafting menu. These recipes were added to assist players on the Cooperative ruleset server in combining Dreaded Seals. The recipes will display for characters on all servers in the Spellcrafting line, but will not function outside of the Cooperative ruleset. For full details of the new Dreaded Seal Recipes, see the Cooperative section of the patch notes.

- The Triumphant Minstrel Stone Shaper now has a reuse timer of 12 minutes, bringing it in line with other Dragonslayer weapons.

- The Ancient Copper Necklace, Beaded Resisting Stones, and Paidrean Necklace will no longer lose durability when repaired. Because of this change, these items can no longer be repaired by players. Any lost durability on these items can now be repaired along with lost condition at an NPC Smith.

- Thayr, an Aurulite merchant in the Kobold Undercity, now sells two gems which were previously only available in Hibernia and Albion.

- The rumor NPCs located in each realm's capital city are now talking about more recent goings on in their kingdom.

- Blinded and bumbling bwca in the Labyrinth now have realm specific treasure.

- (PVP Only) Technomancer Gibson will no longer take damage from spike traps.

- (PvE Only) Players will now only be offered the Saving Zarees quest by the version of the NPC Tym that is located outside their home realm's capital.

- The Love Spoon can now be destroyed.

- The Greater Warlock Staff of the Sigils now gives a bonus to all three Warlock magical focus spell lines.

- The trash drop called globe of swirling mist is now stackable.

- James Maury, Snorri Sturluson, and Edward Plunkett will no longer repeat the dialogue to offer the A Tale of a Dragon's Revenge quest to players that have already completed it.

- The spell range bonus on items will now affect the leash range of focus spells and necromancer pet casting in the same way it affects the casting range of a spell.

- Players will no longer be teleported to the same side of a keep/tower door. This corrects an issue where characters sometimes were erroneously ported back to the same side they were attempting to leave.


Recognizing the need for more trained adventurers to aid the realms in their ongoing battle against enemy forces from within and outside, the Kings of each realm have dedicated more resources to this end.

- Now, players can enter the game and explore the lands of Constantine’s Sound (Albion), Grenlock’s Sound (Midgard), or Lamfhota’s Sound (Hibernia), gaining experience and preparing themselves for the battles to come.

- Constantine’s Sound (Albion), Grenlock’s Sound (Midgard), and Lamfhota’s Sound (Hibernia) have been expanded to allow players, new and old, to learn and level easily from level one to ten in one area. To accommodate this, the zones have been expanded and additional quests implemented to provide content up to level ten.

- (Albion) Constantine’s Sound has been expanded to include the towns of New Avalon and Finnen along with the existing town of Holtham and the keep Caer Stamford. New quests and content is available in all three towns.

- (Midgard) Grenlock’s Sound has been expanded to include the villages of Ulvastad and Halgost along with the existing village of Hafheim and the keep Thorsa Faste. New quests and content is available in all three villages.

- (Hibernia) Lamfhota’s Sound has been expanded to include the villas of Ryley and Allta Coill along with the existing villa of Fintain and the keep Dun Cormyra. New quests and content is available in all three villas.

- Players that choose the tutorial option will start in these zones automatically. Players that do not choose the tutorial option will be able to talk to a channeler and visit the new areas if they are of appropriate level.

- Base Class removal - As part of this expansion to the starter area content, we have removed the necessity to choose a base class upon character creation. Instead, characters can choose their class immediately from any of the advanced classes available to their chosen race.

Example: Bob wants to try his hand at being a Thane. Instead of choosing to join the Viking Base Class, leveling to five, then choosing to be a Thane; Bob can just choose to be a Thane from the Character Selection screen.

- When creating a new character, players will choose the advanced class they want immediately. Because of the amount of advanced classes available to the player, the starting stat allocation process has been modified.

For new characters, when a player chooses an advanced class, the starting stats will be auto-allocated. This is similar to choosing that option previously when creating a base class. If a player wishes to customize their starting stats, they can do so on the following screen where the facial features are customized. There is now an ‘adjust attributes’ option on that screen allowing you to view and change your starting stats.

Existing characters still have the option to change their stats at any time. This can be done by choosing the ‘customize’ button at the bottom of the screen when they have their character selected. The only difference is that the stat modification option is now on the facial feature screen, toggled via the ‘adjust attributes’ button on the bottom of that screen.

Note: Currently, players that die in the tutorial zones will /release to their home realm unless they /bind in the tutorial zone. A bind stone is available in each tutorial starter town.



- The level 1 Rogue Thrust style 'Wildcat' is now a level 3 style. This change affects the Minstrel, Infiltrator, and Scout classes.


- The level 1 Stalker Piercing style ‘Wildsting’ is now a level 3 style. This change affects the Ranger and Nightshade classes.


- The level 1 Rogue Sword style ‘Wildblade’ is now a level 3 style. This change affects the Hunter and Shadowblade classes.

Stealth Changes

- In an effort to make stealthers more group friendly, party members will now be able to see stealthed party members within a 2,500-unit radius.

- The realm ability ‘Mastery of Stealth’ will now provide a greater movement speed bonus, while lowering the detection range bonus. This will help stealthed players with positioning for attacks and easier escapes.

- Mastery of Stealth 1 - 10% increase in speed and a 50-unit detection bonus.
- Mastery of Stealth 2 - 20% increase in speed and a 100-unit detection bonus.
- Mastery of Stealth 3 - 30% increase in speed and a 200-unit detection bonus.
- Mastery of Stealth 4 - 40% increase in speed and a 325-unit detection bonus.
- Mastery of Stealth 5 - 50% increase in speed and a 475-unit detection bonus.


- The Mauler Direct Damage and Damage Add spells in the 'Power Strikes' line will no longer share a timer.


- Thanes will now receive the ability to wear chain armor at level 10.


- The Vampiir trainers Rygda and Vertyn in the Hibernian Relic towns are no longer invincible.

- The spell effect of the Demon Seal Ammunition (Boulders and Barrages) will no longer work outside of New Frontiers. This fixes a bug where the effect could be used in the Battlegrounds and was deemed too powerful for that environment.

- Modified the way keep doors work to prevent an issue where characters would attempt to leave a main keep and be ported back inside.



The following Regrowth spells have a new and correct spelling:

- Resurgence
- Minor Resurgence
- Major Resurgence

Quests - Albion

- Vengeance is Mine - The steps of this quest must now be completed sequentially.

- Guard Zekatar's Order - Corrected a typo in the message players receive on step 2 after salvaging the metal from the gate.

Quests - Hibernia

- Lost in Oblivion - Players who have previously progressed past goal two and then dropped it will now be able to complete the quest if they restart it at a later time.

Item notes

- Players will now be able to port directly to their house on a cluster, regardless of the server they are currently on.


- Additional recipes have been added to the Spellcrafting line that will allow characters to combine Dreaded Seals to ease their redemption. Characters can now combine 10 Glowing or Sanguine Dreaded Seals into a single Lambent Dreaded Seal that can be turned into the Dreaded Seal Collector for ten times the reward they would normally get. There is also a recipe for a Flugent Dreaded Seal that combines five of the new Lambent Dreaded seals and can be turned in for five times the Lambent Dreaded Seal reward. Finally, there is an Effulgent Dreaded Seal Recipe that combines five of the Fulgent Dreaded Seals and is worth five times the Fulgent Dreaded Seal Reward. Please note that like the Sanguine and Glowing Dreaded seals, the new seals give out realm points based on the level of the character turning in the seal. In addition, players cannot go over the maximum Realm Point total for their level through redemption of these seals, so if a player turns one in and hit their cap (or are at your cap), that player will only get enough realm points to take them to the maximum for their level. Once combined, the new seals cannot be split back into the component seals.

- Tym, the quest giver for the 'Saving Zarees' quest will now only offer the Midgard version of this quest. This fixes an issue where it would offer the Albion and Hibernian version, but the quest goals were all in the respective realm.


- The timer that determines if an enemy player, previously defeated by your character, is worth realm points has been drastically reduced. The previous time before a character, which your character had killed, was worth realm points was set to twenty-four hours; the new setting for the timer is fifteen minutes.

- Being killed by an enemy player will now only cost players a single point of 'Constitution'.
