    Default The Anniversary Dungeon Returns!

    UPDATE: The Anniversary Dungeon is now live! Through March 5th.

    We're bringing back the Anniversary Dungeon for an encore! You may also see some minor changes to the dungeon this year. We're expecting to turn on the dungeon late on Thursday morning, Eastern time, and the dungeon will be available through March 5th! The reward list includes the return of an older cosmetic item as well: The Captain of Bling! This hat marks the return of the Admiral of Bling, which was available during DDO's 5th Anniversary, in a new cosmetic form. The Anniversary Dungeon will be able to be accessed in House Phiarlan.

    We also have a special gift for everyone in celebration of DDO's 11th Anniversary, which we will have more information on later.

    Me and the family are looking forward to the Monty Python-ish humor.

    Would said minor changes include bringing a formerly former dev back to life?

    Also, I really hope the Captain of Bling is a Captain's Chapeau and not the Dread Admiral's Tricorne, but I suspect not, given the wording. The Chapeau is just much more fetching and jaunty, and would look really spiffing all blinged up.

    The only event that requires a server downtime is the Risia event / Midwinter games, as players can get stuck under the ice when the event activates.

    All events are activated with a command or script when the server is up and running.

    Freebies!!!

    I like freebies.


    Not a hireling thingy though please - I like my new white lion thing (well I will probably like it if I ever use it) but they're something I never use.

    How about an Epic Sapphire Sting? That would be nice without going OTT

    :-)

    It was set up using the challenge system, so no Reaper option.

    It's a Cosmetic version of the Admiral of Bling, which was previously distributed at PAX East and a few other community events.
    We don't only build for the builds that exist.
    We don't only build for the builds that are good right now.

    The fact that some changes are necessary is not diminished by the fact that other necessary changes have not happened yet.

    No downtime needed. The downtime-required work for this was done in this week's patch.

    Unfortunately not, since this uses the scaling Challenge tech rather than the regular quest scaling.

    That is just ludicrously tasteless.

    ....my swashbuckler will be be combining it with elocators habilment, a shiny orb, a bunch of flowers & scion of limbo for maximum fabulosity
    I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was, now what's it is weird and scary to me.

    Since challenges don't have difficulty scaling, no.

    Yeah, that's what's what I sadly figured. But the "Captain of Bling" gave me hope. Maybe you can bling up the Captain's Chapeau for the next Cove *g*
