Placed Houses in Dungeons

Greetings Everyone,

It has come to our attention that houses have been placed in the copy of Castle Blackthron dungeon.  We are giving you 48 hours to remove your house or it will be deleted.  The houses on Atlantic were deleted because they were empty.  If you place there you will lose your house.

Thank you and we hope to see you on Origin tomorrow, faire starts at 3 pm ET.

Vendor Search Database Maintenance

04/20/2022 – 04/21/2022

Update: Database maintenance is complete. Vendor Search is back online.


We will be taking Vendor Search offline to perform database maintenance this evening.  Once Vendor Search is brought back online, the vendor database will repopulate over a 24-hour period.  During this time, you will experience intermittent search failures.  Vendor owners may opt out and re-opt-in their vendors to accelerate the process, but this is not required.  We appreciate your patience.

See you in Britannia,
