Call this news piece the Broadsword Corner. Actually, don’t, because that’s not terribly interesting. That said, both of Broadsword MMORPGs — Dark Age of Camelot and Ultima Online — have some new things going on that fans may want to note.
This past Friday, Dark Age of Camelot posted a grab bag of player questions. As one might expect, the questions covered a broad variety of topics including whether certain items can be stored, the difference between absorption percentage debuffs and armor factor debuffs (say that 10 times fast), and a couple of other bits of miscellany. If you’d rather just play the game instead, then you can take advantage of some bonuses going on until September 3rd.
Over in the world of Britannia, Ultima Online’s latest newsletter has granted a look at the newest Forsaken Foes build on the test server, which has new rewards for the Huntmaster’s Challenge, a look at the upcoming Halloween event (which will take place on the sea, in keeping with this year’s other patch, note!), and new rewards for some of the big modern content bosses (Scalis, Charybdis, and Corgul). You can also look over the patch notes for a more detailed breakdown.
