    Batten down the hatches and get ready to set sail! Adventure awaits!


    We're proud to announce that our next expansion, Visions of Vetrovia, is coming! You’re going to need to be prepared. While many of you have had your attention focused on the Celestial landscapes and the threats therein, others have never stopped looking across the vast oceans of Norrath. An enterprising captain by the name of Douglan Wakerunner is convinced there are uncharted lands still waiting to be found! He has convinced the Far Seas Trading Company to invest in his endeavor and is now looking to hire a few good adventurers to join his crew.

    Sign up and set sail with The Swimming Oak, and see what adventures await us all . . . beyond the Shattered Sea!

    Adventure Awaits!
    This prelude adventure includes three new repeatable tradeskill quests, four new adventure quests (three of which are repeatable), three new collections, and an event merchant featuring 19 new items including a new mount and a new recipe book! It will all begin once you log into game and check your in-game mail.

    Be sure to visit Aariena Glitterflitter, the Swimming Oak Merchant, located near the docks in The Village of Shin. She has an impressive list of new items as well as some recognizable ones from previous events. Items are available for exchange using Bobbing Acorns.

    Get ready to set sail for what will surely be an epic adventure! The Prelude begins after scheduled downtime completes on September 14, 2021 and will go until we release the next expansion.

    Stuck away from your computer right now? We've had our resident photographer take these photos highlighting some of the things you'll encounter.

    Very cool! Looking forward to seeing it. It'll be nice to sail the high seas again.

    Question: I've missed using some of my tokens from previous expacs (Deep Copper and GLEESH); can we exchange them for Bobbing Acorns or Elemental Storm Shards, which seem to still be accepted?

    Love this game and so excited about new lands and recipes. I just need more bank storage lol.
    Will we be getting a higher level to level up to at some point???

    looks interesting, questions are as follows. Are we staying at the current level, or are we going up in level? When are we getting the panda summer quest or is that now a thing of the past?

    I'd like Skerry Island, with the house and dock, available as player housing! Pretty please.

    It already is. That's just the Rum Runner's Cove house with a few minor tweaks. Rum Runner's has three houses on the dock, instead of one, and they added some big rocks in the water.

    I'd love to find out the answer to this question. SO many abandoned currencies in my currency window as it is.

    You can trade in old currencies for transmutables to a gnome on the Butcherblock Docks.

    Reusing Rum Runners Cove house with only one house on the beach does not make this new content by my reckoning. Nice to know about the currencies exchange on Butcher Block Dock. I did think that the house might not have an expansion, so maybe this is the expansion it belongs in or there is another out there I have not seen yet. I guess I will need to check game for the Buried Sea area as I find several of the pictures here remind me of other parts of the Rum Runners Cove house and the scenery thru the cave at the north end of the inlet where the Village of Shin is located.

    See Claudia, the Token Exchange Merchant, during the monthly city festivals to exchange some of your older event coins, such as Deepwater Copper and G.L.E.E.S.H. Marks into City Tokens.

    I was also super curious as to when we would get the summer quests. I loved these as they have some of the house items that we can no longer get as they are vaulted.

    I just hope after seeing the "Striped Pteranodon" mount & the reintroduction of our pirate friends...this doesn't mean we will be going back to Tranquil & Phantom Sea's again. /crossing fingers
