    Default Launch Date for Mabar Festival known?

    Any concrete date set for the Festival?
    Developers please consider making some changes to the gear if you still have the time, the rest looks awesome.

    Instead of changes, I'd beg the devs to get a completely separate server to run Mabar, we're tired of the lag festivals. For the love of all that is spooky, this All Hallow's Eve please don't let any other part of DDO share an instance with Mabar, please!

    Instead of when will Mabar be launched and answering with a smug "soonish" give us a "when we're sure it won't wreck everyone's gaming experience for two weeks straight."

    I read somewhere that it will be running Oct 1-31.

    I'm guessing it'll be loaded in with the next patch (being that it's running on Llama right now.)

    No source, sorry, just my tainted memory.

    Thumbs up Mabar to me is like what Football is to others! Totally Awesome!

    My Undead killer weapon is this my friends: A min level 18, +4 Fesitval Icy burst, Acid Greatsword of Greater Undead bane with Force critical added. Thats for the Rotten Fleshy type and for the Skeletons I use The Green Steal Maul: Holy, Good burst, Good Blast I believe it is with Greater Disruption and one Rez Click.

    I like this event A lot!

    FOOTBALL!

    Am looking forward to Mabar this year, there looks like some nice extra rewards & a couple more of my characters want the wraps, or the docent for that handy nightshield clicky, plus naturally i want to stock up on pumpkin & skull grenades Hopefully the removal of giant skeletons should help with the lag too, as iirc they were causing a lot of the issues before.

    Unhappy I hope our time is not wasted again this year with LAGGED out instances of the dragon

    I'd be happy if, when Mabar does run, the spectral dragon dungeon doesn't completely freeze up for the entire party. Last years run of Mabar was a catastrophe. Turbine had to shut it down twice. When it was running, due to the interruptions and the specific days it was running few people played it, so we had relatively few dragon dungeon openings from which to earn a spectral dragon scale. When it did open...ugh, total freeze ups of EVERY one inside the instance....until we all were killed by the mobs of course. So, play our butts off to get the thing to open with low attendance, and for naught because it freezes completely up. VERY frustrating.

    So, yes Turbine, P L E A S E please have this FOUR year old event working well? Please? Not being able to function in game is tantamount to not being able to log in. It is beyond fruitless, it is disheartening and very wasteful of our time to work towards an end goal (in this case opening the dragon chamber to acquire the last ingredient) and have the goal be unobtainable due to L A G!

    We have not yet announced the exact date for Mabar, but you can expect it to be around Halloween-ish, most likely, and run for a long enough time for folks to get the things they need. We'll have more concrete dates later.

    Do you plan on doing an early test run this year so you can pull it down and fix it before halloween? I would run a test the very first weekend after the patch hits so you have lots of time.

    On a side note - you can get 20min Deathward Potions from the cleric trader in Eveningstar now for one Cleric Commendation.

    After last year you would think this could go unsaid and we could assume they would. But in fact that probably means it will now go untested. As usual.

    Thanks, while you're at it make sure that the target to unlock things are adjusted somewhat. More like crystal cove amounts. Since it's all BTC stuff the burn out slaying undead is hard to deal with. It's better to get more spectral dragon slaying for the many toons people got, then to wait a whole day for maybe one or two failed openings.

    Anyway, thanks.

    Please make it as early as possible I'm going to be gone for 2 weeks starting Oct.31st and my fav DDO event is Mabar (despite most of my characters not being so good at fighting undead)

    Not that I think it should be set around my schedule...just a hope
