State of Elanthia – March Update on 03/20/2020 10:45 AM PDT
Hey everyone, I wanted to discuss our plans over the next handful of weeks and update you on some changes.
Briarmoon Cove is going to be postponed. It will still be running soon. Dates to be determined based on staffing availability. The reason for this is the event isn’t in a state that exceeds the expectations I’d like for it. I don’t want this event to feel rushed or lackluster. This is one of our big silver events this year, and I want to make sure it’s thoroughly enjoyed.
Starting at roughly 3pm EDT today, we will be offering 15% more base experience for roughly the next 6 weeks. It’s similar to the BOOST EXP daily login reward and does not stack with it.
Also starting today at roughly 3pm EDT, Fridays from March 20th to May 1st will be FEEDER FRENZY FRIDAYS. GM-created items, commonly referred to as box founds, will show up more in your boxes.
Saturdays and Sundays starting March 21st and lasting until May 3rd will be SATURDAY AND SUNDAY SMITHY SOJOURN. The WPS Mobile Smithy will be available in various locations, starting with Wehnimer’s Landing. The price to enter the wagon is 100,000 silvers. There will be an assistant outside the wagon to offer you a quote before needing to go inside the wagon.
Starting March 27th at 9pm EDT, we will be offering Delirium Manor for silver. The prizes will be slightly different. More details on this to come.
We are also planning some visits from the Albatross, which will include DragonBones, Conquest Wheel (if we have enough interest), and other activities. We will also try to increase the number of merchant activity over the next handful of weeks. Be on the lookout for wandering and traveling merchants!
Some other things to look forward to is an exclusive GIFTBOX that will be coming soon. Unique and special gifts will be distributed in this manner for those who are with us during this time. More on this in the coming days.
We have some other announcements coming down the pipeline, which I will work on getting out as soon as I can.
I want to thank you all for being a part of the GemStone IV community.
