For those looking to check out Dark Age of Camelot, May 17th might be a good date to circle on your calendar. The MMORPG will be hosting a "Catch Up In Caledonia" event, which acts as a way for players to quickly level towards end-game.
The 7-day event in DAoC should get players from level 1 all the way to level 50 and ready for the end game. According to developer Broadsword, the event will last until May 24th, giving players a full week to take part in the action.
Via the event announcement:
"The 7-day long event that will take place entirely in the Realm vs Realm-enabled Caledonia battleground zone. Players will start at level 1 and rapidly progress to level 50 all while earning gear, master levels, champion levels, and realm ranks along the way!"
For those jumping in within the first four days, you'll be greeted once your character is created in the Caledonia battleground, though it's important to note that this is the only way to get into the Battleground during this event is this way, and while players can leave, they won't be able to return.
You'll want to jump into the event during those first four days, as once Friday, May 21st hits the starting areas will be reset back to their original zones and no new characters will be able to be created for the event. The DAoC team has also broken down some of what is new during this event versus Catch Up In Caledonia's past, including removing resurrection sickness from level 1-5 players, with the duration reduced for all other players in the zone. Crowd control durations are also reduced, scaling by 1% for every level below 50.
Characters 7 levels or more below the cap will also get the Caledonia Boost Buff.
"We made several updates during the previous event and have several new ones for this iteration:
- Characters that are 7 levels or more below the day's level cap will receive the Caledonia Boost buff.
- This buff greatly increases the damage dealt and greatly reduces damage received from characters that do not have the buff (higher level characters)!
- Characters with the Caledonia Boost buff active will also DOUBLE the XP and BP rewards for themselves and their group!
- When the level cap reaches 49 the buff will be given out to characters 3 or more levels under the cap.
