Update and Hot Fixes

Update and Hot Fixes -

Mythic, the makers of the popular classic MMORPG Dark Age of Camelot, have released a new set of update notes. This particlar update, however, includes some new fun stuff to do for Halloween. Boo!


  • When a group has an active instance, but the group has fully exited the instance, the group leader is now able to immediately request a new instance just as a solo player can.
  • Artifacts and Champion weapons are now dyable by player crafted weapon lusters as well as new weapon dyes available on the King's Quartermaster. These new dyes are called Burnishes and are available at champion levels 2, 3 and 4 at the cost of 125 gold each.


  • 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!
  • 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.
  • They 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 potions' magics are short-lived and the potions will be useless after the festivies end so don't horde them.
  • Some of the 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 realmmates playing dressup!
  • The costumes and potions only work while you are in the captial 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.

DAoC has also released some brand new hot fixes:

Fresh and crunchy.

  • There are now two candy merchants in housing zones. One at the entrance and one in the market.
  • Fixed an issue with some housing market explorers and server channelers.
  • Artifacts and Champion weapons should now be flagged as dyable. The Quartermaster's stores now have the burnishes available.
