    All of us here at Broadsword would like to wish all our players Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year with best wishes for 2019!


    We have a lot of exciting plans in the works for 2019, including our Free to Play model, Endless Conquest!
    [​IMG]
    The Endless Conquest will be a new account type for new and previously subscribed accounts that allows players to enjoy Dark Age of Camelot through level 50 (and beyond) for free, without a paid subscription, forever. Endless Conquest players will be able to level all the way to 50 on a limited selection of classes, participate fully in RvR, and earn Master Levels, Champion Levels, and Realm Rank – to a point.

    While permanently free, there are limitations involved with the Endless Conquest accounts such as character slots, leveling rates, house ownership, item trade and storage, being limited to Ywain and Gaheris servers only, and more. Please visit our FAQ for the current status and details, but please remember this is an ongoing development and subject to change.

    1.125b Hotfix and Curse changes
    The following changes went live on December 12th!

    Highlights

    • Name change tokens make their return to the Mithril shop!
    • The Skull Mask pattern is now for sale in the Mithril shop!
    • The 14-days free trial is now disabled in preparation for development of the Endless Conquest update.
    • The Dragon’s Curse campaign's difficulty has been significantly reduced and is now able to be completed with a group or less!

    View the full notes on the Herald!
