    First up thanks to all devs past and present for a wonderful game, cannot believe how long it has been around keeping us all entertained. :) :D :)

    Time of launch?
    Do we need to log out and back in again to be able to go to the new zone?
    Anything else happening for the 20th Anniversary?
    Bonus exp? Market Place Specials? Returning anniversary content?

    Only 2 days to go!
    Need to make plans!

    Time of launch?
    Between 2 and 4 AM est I think ?

    Do we need to log out and back in again to be able to go to the new zone?
    No, GMM was already patched and on a count down. (or push of a button? lol)

    Anything else happening for the 20th Anniversary?
    Lots of cake

    Bonus exp? Market Place Specials? Returning anniversary content?
    Not sure about the first 2, even so nothing on /calendar about it for this Friday. I doubt about the market place specials just yet considering the new ornaments are coming out.

    But all the past anniversary quests will be available with GMM and an extra 20th Anniversary quest that involve.... well... eating lots of cake.

    I think it’s 3 PM EST as opposed to 3 AM EST. At least the progression servers are due to launch at 3 PM EST (in line with anniversary) so I imagine that the whole rollout will be simultaneous, including GMM.

    In game calendar states 12:00am PST on the 16th.

    Always trust the in-game calendar. Except when the in-game calendar is broken by a patch, in which case don't trust the in-game calendar. Always have time-travel spells memorized just in case.

    Anything else happening for the 20th Anniversary?


    Eat a special cake at specific spots for updates I think.
    Dev posted a hint - it must be Slice of Platinum Anniversary Cake

    Yeah, mine doesn’t now either, but before the patch it did for sure. Showed 12:00AM PST on 3/16. Guess the patch broke the calendar.
  13. Gyurika Godofwar Augur

    It shows the legacy stuff for 5th through 13th and possibly fableds on April 12. Prior to the patch it showed 14th through 19th + GMM 20th on March 16th but the patch broke it.
  14. Fanra Augur

    Since the in-game calendar is broken and I have not seen an official Daybreak post, based on the EQ Resource calendar I'm going to assume it is the same as previous years with:

    Date begins | Content | Date ends
    Saturday, March 16 | Gnome Memorial Mountain | Permanently added to game
    Saturday, March 16 | 14th through 19th anniversary quests, missions, and raids | Friday, May 10
    Friday, April 12 | 5th through 13th anniversary quests, missions, raids, and Fabled mobs | Friday, May 10

    I'm asumming its all going live at midnight PDT tonight, apart from the later anniversary and fabled stuffs.

    When I consolidated anniversary alerts for this year, I missed changing the calendar display behavior. The data is actually correct on Live servers now, but it doesn't look like the calendar will pick up the event data change without a server down. The alert should pop up tomorrow when things kick off.

    What the calendar event should / would / will look like:

    Is it not more appropriate to use a gnome timer? That way if anything goes wrong you can blame them, because everyone knows that gnome tech is junk and seldom works as intended ;)
  18. Moege Augur

    Wrong it works like intended blowing you up is intended the malfunction is when you get a port or something else.
  19. smash Augur

    I am confused....

    Other years, it has always been so that it starts with the first mission, and such.
    And coming in groups of 4.

    Why this change ? I would rather have so being able to concentrate on 20th and then in like 1-2 month do the 19/18 thing.

    Also, it is anniv, but yet there nothing for the lesser levels, except for the gnome run

    To get to Gnome Memorial Mountain, head to Dragonscale Hills and in the far south near the sea is a new steamwork cannon.

    The zone is now live and is supposed to be permanent.

    Good's Maps has a map for it
