Updates to Mary Badger and Summoner coming up!

As time progresses there is need to update old NPCs to better service the community and expand gameplay in meaningful ways. With this intention in mind we are notifying the community that Mary Badger in the Eden Group will discontinue taking the MVP Etc items that drop and exchanging them to Eden Merit Badgers.

Related, the Summoner of MVPs in Geffen Tower will discontinue his services on February 28th, as will the update of Mary Badger.

We are intending on updating both these NPCs with different trade rates, and in the case of the Summoner, we will update his processes to inspire more fun group play when you summon.

This may seem ubrupt to discontinue the Summoner even for a week or 2, but it is needful due to we cannot update him while he is still active as it is more disruptive to the community to have him changing every week rather than leave, fix and return better than ever.

So please exchange your MVP etc items with Mary Badger before the 28th to get your best Eden Merit Badge Ratio.

Thank you,

WoE is back to normal with updated dates!
The season of Event WoEs is over and we return back to normal WoEs now. We are taking this opportunity to make some changes to WoE to better optimize the server hardware and to make sure the competition level stays high during WoE times. With competition and future WoE updates in mind we are splitting WoE on all servers.

The day of the week and time remains the same but which castles become available during that WoE window is being updated:

Ymir: updated
  • Wednesday 3pm PST : WoE 1
  • Saturday 7pm PST : WoE 2

Yggdrasil: updated
  • Wednesday 3pm PST : WoE 1
  • Saturday 5pm PST : WoE 2

  • Tuesday 4pm PST : WoE 2
  • Saturday 3pm PST : WoE 1

Also the WoE 2 Guardian stones have increased HP to make defending them more feasible. Later this year big changes to the entire WoE and WoE dungeon systems will come, so please look forward to that!
