Catch Up in Caledonia Event[]

Posted by John Thornhill | 2021 Feb 28 19:02 -0500 GMT Have you or your friends been thinking of coming back to Dark Age of Camelot? Or are you a veteran player just looking for a change of pace!?

Join us this Friday, March 5th for your chance to start fresh and rapidly progress to the end-game with players around your level!

What is Catch Up in Caledonia?[]

A 10-day long event that will take place entirely in the Realm vs Realm-enabled Caledonia battleground zone.

Players will start at level 1 and rapidly progress to level 50 all while earning gear, master levels, champion levels, and realm ranks along the way!

By the event's end participants will be ready to competitively RvR in the Frontier!

When does the event start and end?[]

The event starts precisely at 4 PM EST / 9 PM GMT on Friday, March 5th and will end on Monday, March 15th.

How does the event work?[]

  • For the first 3 days of the event, newly created level 1 characters will be automatically zoned into the Caledonia battleground where they will vie for control against the enemy realms!
    • This will be the ONLY way to get inside the battleground zone. Once inside, characters can voluntarily leave but CANNOT return!
    • All monsters, center-keep guards, and siege weapons are removed for the event. The only way to progress is by defeating realm enemies in battle and turning in related quests.
    • Charm-pet classes will be able to create a pet to charm at their realm's portal keep.
  • After the 3rd day, character starting locations will reset to their default zones and no new characters will be able to join the event. Everyone still inside Caledonia will be able to continue progressing for the remainder of the event's duration.
  • Experience, bounty, and realm point bonuses will be granted to both free and subscribed accounts in the battleground to help them progress!
  • Earn bounty points for completing quests and defeating enemy realm players and use them to purchase level-appropriate gear as you strive to 50 and then master and champion levels!
  • The battleground will use a mix of leveling caps and new instances to maintain populations throughout the event:
    • At Level 5, characters will automatically teleport to a new instance for levels 5-9.
    • At level 10, characters will automatically teleport to a new instance for levels 10+
    • The following level caps will be in place for all characters in Caledonia and will increase by 5 levels every 24 hours:
      • Day 1: Level 15 maximum
      • Day 2: Level 20
      • Day 3: Level 25
      • Day 4: Level 30
      • Day 5: Level 35
      • Day 6: Level 40
      • Day 7: Level 45
      • Days 8-10: Level 50
    • Characters that reach a level cap will not be able to earn realm points or experience until the level cap is increased but will still be able to complete quests and earn bounty points towards their gear and other progression goals.

How far will I be able to progress?[]

Players that start at the beginning of the event should be able to reach level 50, Champion level 15, Master level 10, and Realm Rank 5+ with the potential to earn much higher realm ranks! Characters will also be able to earn enough bounty points to not only obtain gear as they progress towards level 50 but also to use for end-game gear via Bountycrafting after reaching level 50!

Catch Up in Caledonia Event Update[]

Posted by John Thornhill | 2021 Mar 08 17:23 -0500 GMT The Catch Up in Caledonia Event was a huge hit over the weekend with thousands of characters leveling through the event so far in its first 3 days.

With today marking the start of the 4th day, new character creation for the event is now disabled.

  • Characters still in the level 1-4 and level 1-9 areas can now visit their realm's Teleporter NPC to [advance] to the level 10+ battleground and then speak with the Caledonia Event Coordinator to receive level 10 and some bounty points!
  • Day 4 means a current level cap of 30! Don't worry if you're still far behind, with the Caledonia Boost buff, lower levels can still compete!
    • Grouping with any character that has the Caledonia Boost will also grant their entire group (regardless of group member levels) a 400% XP and BP gain bonus!

Thanks to all that have and will continue to participate in the event, we have loved every minute of it and hope you have too!

Feedback on the event has been tremendous and we've already made several tweaks to it. We look forward to going over more feedback as the event continues so that we can make the next iteration even better!

Here are some of the updates to the event in case you missed them in our official discord channel:

  • Random teleport locations have been improved to no longer send characters into the keep areas.
  • Added a Caledonia Boost buff to level 1 characters and characters that are 7 levels or more below the current level cap.
    • This buff drastically reduces damage received and massively increases damage dealt on these characters so that they can better compete against higher levels.
  • Resurrection sickness is removable by the Healer NPC in the level 1-4 and 5-9 areas.
  • The buff NPC now offers a free buff token to level 1-2 characters.
  • The bounty merchant now has power-heal and power-regen potions for sale.
  • The pet collector NPC is now available for charm classes.

To help with the level gap we've added the following in Caledonia: Players that are 7 levels below the current level cap get a big damage reduction/damage dealt increase buff. This will put them on more even footing with higher levels and still allow similar levels to deal normal damage to each other. Currently any players in Caledonia level 13 or lower get this buff We've also given this buff to all level 1s by default.

Updates: - Level cap is increased to 30 - Charm classes can now summon a pet through the Pet Collector sphinx in port in areas - Players level 1-9 can speak to the realm Teleporter to advance to the final BG. Once there, speak to the Caledonia Event Coordinator to obtain level 10 and a quick turn-in quest for bps in order to buy gear/weapons. - Power heal & regen pots have been added to the BP merchant - Grouping with any character that has the Caledonia Boost will also grant their entire group (regardless of group member levels) a 400% XP and BP gain bonus!
