Frontiers, Tradeskills and Siegecraft


  • Players will no longer be given Realm missions to capture keeps which do not exist or are already owned by their own realm.
  • The icons associated with the portal stones (personal house, guild house, and personal bind) have been updated so they represent their destination. Previously the 'use' icons were displayed as a shield for all three stones.
  • The Dragonslayer Armor Sets, the Cloaks of Might and Magic, and the Medal's of Honor received during the Dragon Campaign will no longer lose durability when repaired. Due to this change, these items can no longer be repaired by players. Any lost durability on these items can now be repaired along with lost condition at a NPC Smith.

  • Healers and Shaman are no longer offered weapons with melee bonus on them for their Guild Gift choices at 10, 15, 20, and 25. They can now choose between two hammers: a two-handed version and a one-handed version, both with appropriate bonuses.
  • Hunters are no longer offered axe and hammer rewards, which they are unable to use, for their Guild Gift choices at 10, 15, 20, and 25.

  • Fixed an issue where the Black Velvet-lined Armguards would sometimes display in the legs slot.
  • Freagus, the stable master in Ardee, will no longer indicate that he is a glimmer when spoken to.

  • The Dragonslayer Journeymen have been given new names and icons. Los Ortiz now resides in Grimspound, Amaravasa Das in Svarhamr, and Chareos in Tailtiu.

  • Siegecraft - The ballista ammunition types, field bolts and thunder bolts, have been adjusted so their sales are now correctly set to 70% of the value of the materials used to make them.
  • Siegecraft - The icons for the trebuchet deployment recipes have been updated so they are appropriate.
  • Siegecraft - The icons for the apparatus recipes have been updated so they are appropriate by siege type.  This fixes an issue where they all were identified by ram icons.
  • Siegecraft - There are now siegecraft order masters that will allow you to join the siegcrafter order as your primary tradeskill. Making siegecraft your primary tradeskill will allow you to choose from siegecraft related titles based on your rank.
  •  The name of the order trainers are as follows:
 Albion: Viras in Camelot; Nalya in Caer Gothwaite
 Hibernia: Maegret in Tir na Nog; Jaeltrat in Grove of Domnann
 Midgard: Hamarr in Jordheim; Vora in Aegirhamn
 Order trainers were also added to each housing market.
  • Siegecraft - The new siegecraft order trainers now offer a tradeskill quest at the following levels: 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1000. The quest will give you the option to choose one of two tools to assist in siegecrafting.

  • The Dragonsworn who had taken up residence in Snowdonia, Yggdra Forest, and Mount Collory have decreased in number over these past few weeks, causing the remaining members to join together at a single camp in each of these three regions.
  • Keep lords, tower captains, and guards that spawn inside the inner keep or outpost towers have had their aggression response modified so they will not 'aggro' through walls or doors.
  • There is a new amenity hookpoint NPC available. Players may now purchase a 'siegecraft supplier' that will sell the basic supplies needed for that tradeskill as well as wood for repairs.
  • Siege Tower - The animation that represents the Siege Tower being built has been supplemented with a translucent version of the Siege Tower to help visually identify that the tower is being built.

If this requirement is not met, the Siege Tower will stop building. If the Siege Tower has been inactive for five minutes, the tower will collapse.
  • Siege Tower - The Siege Tower name will change based on the current state of the tower being built. Example: While building, it will be called 'Siege Tower (building)' and while no one is around, and it is dormant, it will be called 'Siege Tower (inactive)'. This should help identify at a glance if the tower is currently active and building.
  • Siege Tower - Beginning to build a Siege Tower now sets an outpost as being under siege at the beginning of the building process rather than at the end.
  • Players will now gain Realm Points (RPs) normally for repairing Siege Tower damaged walls.
  • Players will now gain Realm Points (RPs) normally for repairing Siege Towers.
  • New pathing has been loaded for all keeps and outposts. This will help pets when pathing near postern door ramps on the main keeps. In addition, it will help with siege rams being placed on the gatehouse door via ground target.
  • The portal stones in the Battleground realm keeps have been moved slightly. This corrects an issue where in rare cases a player would /release in the battleground and be inside the portal stone and have to jump out.

  • Changed the icon for the Abrasion line AE DDs so they are easily distinguishable from the DD icon.

  • The Arboreal spec group damage add granted immunity to critical damage for anyone it was cast upon. This has been corrected and will now allow an attacker to do critical damage.

Albion Monsters
  • The Bogman Grapplers in Avalon Marsh will now drop level appropriate Tinderboxes and items.

Quests - Hibernia
  • Gnome Away From Home - The Unseelie Henchmen are no longer charmable.

Item Notes
  • The dragon remains and trophies obtained prior to the dragon campaign revamp of the dragon art have been renamed so they are easily identifiable from the new versions. The old versions will now have a dragon-specific (smoldering, frozen, & glimmering) adjective added to them so you can tell them apart. Example: For Albion the older remains are now called 'Golestandt's Smoldering Remains' versus the new version which is still called 'Golestandt's Remains'.

Item Notes

  • The new channelers that spawn for level 6 or higher keeps will now spawn correctly on the PVP ruleset.

  • Siege Towers that are under construction now use the builder’s guild to determine who can attack it. If the builder does not have a guild, then anyone can attack it.
  • Siege Towers can now be repaired by anyone hostile to the outpost and walls, with Siege Towers only able to be repaired by players friendly to it.
