Yar, me hearties! It be Talk Like A Pirate Day! A day wherebe ev'ry pirate worth his salt celebrates a year of good winds, calm seas, 'n bountiful booty wit' a fresh smoothie wit' th' crew! Trouble be a a'brewin' in Osprey Cove tho'! Mazurek's Autumn Wind 'n Rhubarb's Red Betty both be in th' port... 'n th' Cap's's and th' crews be gettin' ready to brawl!
Fer this week, there be a Pirate Challenge t' complete! Choose yer side 'n help collect booty fer the Cap'n o' yer choosin'! Th' Cap'n wit' th' biggest pile o' booty by next week will be rewardin' ye a treasure fer yer help!
Lots o' new treasures be available fer DC, if yer wantin' gear now! Thar also be rumors o' a wicked edge that might be found wit' pirate booty!
Now, here be a word from Ash!
This week we have a fancy new Trinket for you! Tomix animated the attack and Verly and I worked on it to give it a neat effect.
Every time you use the trinket you have a 20% chance to gain half your level's worth of gold for that battle! So if you're a level 50 character, and you see the popup, you'd get 25 gold added right onto your earned gold for that quest! You can have it happen multiple times during the same quest too!
There's also a SECOND benefit to owning it. During this challenge to help either Rhubarb or Mazurek collect the most booty, as long as you have the trinket in your bag you'll contribute an ADDITIONAL count of booty to your chosen side. That's 2 for 1 run!
Baron Valtrith has arrived! You guys defeated 3.5million waves in just a week and even earlier than we expected!
Despite the win in the war, the cultists plan was successful and Baron Valtrith was summoned. A villain summoned with parts and possessions of some of Lore’s greatest villains! It’s definitely not the last you’ve seen of him either… Monstervania is coming this October!
Pirates! This Wednesday Thursday be Talk Like A Pirate Day, Mateys! There be some seasonal rares returnin’ and new pirate-y things from First Matey, Cronix!
Ye and Tomix’ll be needin’ a Captain fer ye ship too. Methinks ye’ll be huntin’ fer one on Friday!
Water Gate Preview The next Gate is still a little ways away but Eric and True Mortal have been working on some spectacular art for it!
Arrr, me mateys, it be talk like a pirate day. We be havin' a fine time at the Underground Lab fightin' and swashbuckling! In order t' celebrate this greatest a days a special shop be in Falconreach. Get yer pirate hats an scarves to celebrate with us! Tho' these be a rare buncha hats, so get 'em 'fore they walk the plank tomorrow night!
Grab your gold doubloons, me hearties, because today be Talk Like a Pirate Day! And not only that, ye scurvy dogs, but it ALSO be the day where we DragonFable team members give a hearty cheer for two players who's suggestions have made it in-game!
For the new Parrrrotical Pete the Parrot Pet, head to Rhubarb in Falconreach and tell him ye want one of these adorable (yarrr, pirates can like cute loot too, ye know!) pets or ye'll swab the deck with him!
And be not shy to let Margus20000 and Zhukai know ye're likin' their work on the forums, because Lim liked their work enough to turn it into in-game art! YARRRR! Each of their weapon sets be in Serenity's Player Suggestion Shop in the Falconreach Inn. Ye can get a tasty mug of ale there, or just take a break from adventurin'(ye lazy land lubbers!)
Here's what we've got fer ye:
Spirit of the Forest I,II,III (level 25, 40, 55 sword)
Cheers to ALL who submitted in Lim's 24 Hour Suggestions Challenge! Do ye like this format of Player Suggestions better than the huge thread that be in the DF Suggestions board? Short, timed submission periods that give ye a better chance of havin' yer stuff seen by the artists? Let us know on the forums!
Now I'm off to sail into the settin' sun! (It's got to be settin' somewheres, right?)
Enjoy yer Talk Like a Pirate Day and Player Suggestion Shop loot!
It's another Wednesday Sneak Peek, and this one is all about the Ravenloss quest this week!
So, you know that you're headed back to Ravenloss, and you know you're looking for Riadne and the Icicle Key, but what does the key look like? Take a peek at Tomix's "Guide to Equilibrium Gate Keys"!
You found the first 4 keys (the Cloud, Flax, Ember, and Shell keys) but did NOT manage to get ahold of the Bolt Key! If you don't know what happened to it, now's a great time to replay the last Ravenloss quest to get caught up! The newest Key is the Icicle Key, and you'd better make sure you get your hands on it! And, while you're searching for it- and Riadne- why not keep an eye out for the Bolt Key? It couldn't hurt!
These keys are so pretty, I think I just might turn them into weapons. They resemble daggers in a way, but we'd have to make them scythes so everyone could use them. Thoughts on this idea? If we DO do them, they'd come as end-of-the-Saga rewards. Gate Key scythes: yes or no?
And in case you missed the preview of the Dark Tower Penitentiary's art style in the Design Notes a few weeks ago, here's another look!
It's been a LONG time since we've visited Ravenloss, and we're all happy to get to work on this Saga again! Remember, it takes Tomix a bit of time to do the art for each quest, but we'll hopefully be alternating Ravenloss quests with Clashening quests from now on so that we can get both chains finished up!
See you Friday for Talk Like a Pirate Day (Ahoy! I spy new booty AND returning seasonal rares!), the Player Suggestion shop, Willowshire and the Dark Tower Penitentiary!
*** Update to the Design Notes ***
After realizing that we already HAVE a staff member named Geno (he writes for AdventureQuest), we've decided to go with some Kenog and Sator for the Stone and Nature dragons! Thanks very much to UltraPowerPie, a forum ArchKnight, who became our human anagram-machine and suggested the new names!
