January 02, 2019 - Frostfell Extended!

There will NOT be a server bounce tomorrow, so Frostfell is now slated to run until 7 a.m. Pacific on the 8th, when the servers go down for a patch. Please spread the word! (Frostfell is the one world event that requires server downtime due to some of the special zone art needed for it, etc.)

December 25, 2018 - Real Life Recipe :)

As I was sitting on Fallen Gate, preparing to listen to a guide tell us a tale of what snowpeople do for Frostfell foods, talk turned to fruitcakes. I mentioned wistfully the delicious fruitcake that my mother used to make when we were young (which made me NOT understand all the fruitcake jokes until I was in college and had a storebought ... brick). In memory of my mother, at the request of a player, I have unearthed from our family reunion cookbook, my mom's "Miracle Fruitcake" recipe. (Apologies to folks who use the metric system, this is a verbatim copy and paste.)

  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 cup seedless raisins
  • 2/3 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark molasses
  • 1 1/2 cups hot water
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 2 cups fruits and peels
  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Combine in saucepan first six ingredients. Boil gently for 3 minutes. Cool in large mixing bowl. Add eggs, fruits & peels and nuts. Sift dry ingredients, and add gradually to fruit mixture, beating well after each addition. Pour into 9" tube pan, lined with greased wax paper. Bake in slow oven (275 degrees) for 2 1/2 hours or until tester inserted in center comes out clean. Remove cake from pan. Cool thoroughly. Wrap securely in foil. Age 3 to 4 weeks to improve flavor. Makes a 4-1/2 pound cake.

December 18, 2018 - Last-Minute Deals!

Whether you are looking for hot deals or cool steals, you may want to check out the Marketplace. Not only has the 12 Days of Frostfell been extended until the 28th of December, but some special homes have been added to the Marketplace as well! The "Limited Time Lewtz" section includes not only any of the collector's edition homes that you may have missed, but two special collector's packages AND the hotly-anticipated Baubleshire home in a special Holiday Bundle that also awards chocolate coins. Get them while they are there if these are deeds that you have been wanting for a while!

December 13, 2018 - Patch Tidbits

These items of tradeskill note were in the patch notes today:

  • Tradeskill Writs no longer need to be turned into the quest giver and will auto-complete after finishing the final combine.
  • Guild harvesters will now offer the daily Planes of Prophecy and Chaos Descending harvesting missions, even if their minions are out gathering early expansion harvests.

That first bit about the tradeskill writs is talking about work orders and rush orders. They all should now auto-complete and give you the reward at the end without you having to run back to the writ giver to hand it in.

The harvesting missions change is something that we have been asking for, as guild harvesters, well, get sent out to harvest. This lets us get our PoP and CD harvesting missions even when the harvesters are out earning their keep.

December 04, 2018 - Frostfell and More

Frostfell 2018 is arriving in a few short hours. I sadly do NOT have a story included with the article this time as my muse seems to be on strike, but the linked article includes details on all the new goodies. (We still need the official Daybreak announcement on the 12 Days of Frostfell promotion, but at least I have some information for you regarding it.)

If this was not enough chaos for December 4, the Fallen Gate server, in addition to their first nearly-full Frostfell event, will be seeing the release of the Sentinels Fate expansion. It will definitely be a very chaotic day over there on that server as folks decide what new stuff they are going to chase after first!

Merry Frostfell everyone!
