    Default Mabar?

    It is nearly that time of year in which we get to smash the bone of those dirty undead. Me and many of the forum trolls are wondering if the kobolds have repaired the system that is Mabar. Thank you in advance, and keep up the good work

    I for one like Mabar...I am hopeful every year that they made some change to deal with lag in the raid. I am once again hopeful, and look forward to Mabar again.

    Mabar is my favorite event. Hope we get it this year!

    Default Mabar +5 tomes?

    If we got a +5 tome on a character last year, can we get another one this year? Is it per character, per event, or even per TR?

    Exactly.

    Lag is bad enough already without the increase caused by these events.

    If they have 100% fixed all the problems related to Mabar - bring it back. If it's anything less then 100% fixed, please leave it on the back burner.

    Mabar is the most troubled Event in DDO's troubled line-up of Live Events, and has an abysmal reputation because of it. If cannot be fixed in total, then it does not deserve another cringe inducing encore.

    Not quite mabar time, another month or so.

    Looking forward to another +5 tome.
    And need some lower level wraps and cloaks for some new toons.
    Ohh and a couple more robes for a PM.
    Ohh and some of those augments
    And a few more wraps and cloaks and robes.

    Aww Heck once again I need more stuff than we will get time to farm.

    Should be a good sign for me to stop making Alts but I'm sure that ain't gonna happen.

    I'd like Mabar back this year - I need to upgrade my lvl 12 Cloak of Night to the lvl 20! (And get the Cloak for a character or two.)

    Default /roll disappointed

    Well it seems Mabar is done . They are creating a new event to come out after U24. Totally lame, I look forward to Mabar every year. I understand the issues people have with the lag that came with the event. But I am still bummed. Hopefully the new event will be as much fun, it seems it will have the same loot.

    Mabar is dead, they could not resolve the issues with it and are replacing it with something else next year.

    Looks like instead of Mabar this year we will have another Cove event.

We're not yet ready to provide details about the event, other than the hint provided in the Producer's Letter from July, but we can say that the event's items will be the items from Mabar. At this time we have not been able to recover the Mabar festival in a way that addresses the issues with it and allow for its return.

    Regarding Crystal Cove, we're planning to run the event this year with the new tier of loot around the time that Mabar would normally arrive. The plan for the future is to have the new event run around the time that we used to run Mabar.

    Update 24: Champions... "whew, it's ok, it's only a red name" .. sad day when trash spawn Champions and their one-shot ignore fort attacks instill more party fear than the Red named bosses.

    Default Wiki entry

    The DDOwiki entry for Mabar now starts with...

    History
    This page is about a subject that no longer exists in-game.
    If you can verify that the subject still exists, please edit this page and remove this template.

    So it looks as if Mabar really is a thing of the past. Add to this the dev quote given above and it looks like it is done for.

    I will miss Mabar. It was the first festival I participated in, and had a heck of a lot of fun. But between the lag issues and some players scamming the game, I can understand that Mabar is broken, and it looks like Turbine is giving up trying to fix it. It saddens me, but I can understand. Hopefully, they will add another festival that is just as much fun.
