The folks at Turbine have released details on their May event for Asheron's Call titled, Prodigal Sons.
Hello there and welcome to the May event: Prodigal Sons! This month the strange behavior from some of Dereth's better know creatures continues. What or who is behind these recent occurrences of strange behavior and why now? Will things continue on, and what will happen next?

The ongoing issues with server performance are still being investigated by the team. The cause of the issue is proving very difficult to track down. We have added extra monitoring and data gathering tools on to the servers in order to help us get these issues resolved. Based on some recent data we have already been able to reduce the amount of these issues by quite a bit, and we will be continuing to work on getting things back to normal as quickly as we can.
Some new weapons have been created for live event rewards. These weapons have a higher than normal damage, but they only last for a limited amount of time. If you are lucky enough to receive one of the new weapons, please make sure that you use it only when you are ready. Players who receive these weapons will get them in the form of a 1 time only use gem which once used will produce the weapon. Once the weapon has been created the player will have 3 hours to use their new weapon before it is destroyed. Please keep in mind that the timer for these weapons will continue to count down even if the player wielding it logs out of the game. Here are a couple of examples of these new weapons.
Several of Dereth's better know creatures have been acting a bit odd lately. Drudges, Banderling's and Mosswarts alike have all been a little more "active" in recent days. It may be a good idea to do some more investigation of this recent activity.
The Drudge raids on Cragstone have lessened for some reason. They no longer attack the windmill, but they still persist on looting the town every so often.
It appears that Asheron has completed building his Guardian Golem with the help of Dereth's people. He has returned to his sanctuary and is no longer in the courtyard overseeing the building of the Golem. Players will still be able to turn in the requested items in order to help keep the Golem repaired.
The vendor that players use their collected ancient coins on now sells Darts and Bolts in addition to the special arrows.
