Patch Notes 25/11/2022

Live Event: Pie Week

Image

Pie Week has come! Toll the bells and throw open the city gates! Caravans of halfling bakers and traders ride into cities to sell their wares and earn a good coin off the hungry stomachs of the Old World. Esmeralda blesses all on this special celebration in her honor. The custom, which originated in the town of Saurapfel in the Moot, has quickly spread across human settlements in the Old World, but particularly in the Empire. Loosen those belt buckles, because Pie Week is all about eating your fill of all manner of pies and washing it down with tasty beer, Esmeralda wouldn't want it any other way!

The Autumn harvest is in full swing in the Old World. Farmers reap the bounties of the earth, as hard work and toil turns into food to feed empires and kingdoms. No where is the Autumn harvest celebrated with greater joy than the Moot. Halflings mark the Autumn Equinox with the celebration known as Pie Week, a celebration of thanks to their goddess of the hearth and home - Esmeralda. Halflings across the Old World use this opportunity to flock to human settlements and earn a quick coin feeding hungry mouths with delicious pies. Of course it wouldn't be a proper Pie Week without some silly games and baking contests, so join in the festive fun while the ovens are hot!

Pie Week will start on November 25th at 12:00 Altdorf time and last until December 5th 12:00 Altdorf time.

Rewards
Pie Week is Return of Reckoning's newest live event which will join our annual rotation of live events. Our artists have made new trophies, new capes, a new mount saddle and magus disc, and a new custom hat for this live event. Our thanks to our artistic contributors for their continued dedication to RoR. We are continuing to test our new approach with mounts lasting longer depending on your renown bracket - your feedback on this system is welcome and appreciated. While permanent mounts are not something we are considering, we do recognize that players who invested more time in their character should reap better rewards.


+Basic reward: Golden Cockerel Stein - a new trophy to remind you that you experienced Pie Week too its fullest, and cannot remember anything after the 5th stein. Preview here
+Advanced reward: Fiery Cockerel Cloak for Order; Soiled Cockerel Cloak for Destruction - two new capes. Preview here
+Elite reward: Battle Ram, or Daemonic Ram Disc mount (decay timers based on renown bracket)
-Completing the Event Quest 'Applebottom's Pie' (Order) or 'Protector's Fee' (Destro) - Rumster's Rum an event slot item.
-Unconfirmed reports speak of apple trophies found in bobbing apples


The Great Bake-Off
In addition to the new items that can be won through the in-game tasks, the Return of Reckoning team is proud to have its first-ever Baking Contest. Those who submit entries which meet the rules will earn the Chef's Wooden Spoon and Chef's Rolling Pin trophies Preview here, and the Picnic Blanket cloak (no preview available at this moment). Additionally one (or more? ) lucky top-baker will have the choice of winning the Halfling Chef's Hat Preview here How do you enter the Great Bake-Off? Head to this forum post and join the festivities. There is still plenty of time to enter, as the final time for entry submissions will be around December 2nd/3rd (TBD).

Pie Week Pies, Picnic Baskets, and Moot Silver Shillings
What would Pie Week be without pies or a picnic basket full of food? Certainly not a proper Pie Week. During Pie Week you can bake pies (i.e. 1-hour liniments) by gathering food from Picnic Baskets, which drop from players. Get the right combination of ingredients and head to the Pie Week baker merchants in Altdorf or the Inevitable City to buy an oven. Buying an oven will start the baking process (you didn't expect to turn ingredients into a pie instantly with a click did you?), which will say 'decaying in 10min' because changing the text to say 'baking' is complicated. After 10 minutes your express pie will be done and ready for your consumption! However, why bake one pie with one fish and one potato when you can bake 2, 3, or 5? Players will also drop Moot Silver Shillings, and you can buy multipliers with your Moot Silver Shillings to bake more than one pie with your ingredients. Names of existing/old liniments which have pie-themed names for Pie Week can found here.


Dyes
It wouldn't be a new live event without some new themed dyes. We are happy to introduce 20 new dyes themed around the Halflings/Moot. Please be aware that these dyes are only available for purchase during this Live Event.

Dye previews are available here towards the bottom, but please be aware that the colors may apply differently on different base armor colors. We recommend to use an addon such as Pocket Palette to see how this dye will look on your armor. These colors were drawn largely from Citadel Paints, Games Workshop publications, and maybe food... We hope to continue to introduce new dyes based on inspiration from the source material in the Live Events to come.


Live Event Shoppe
Multiple Pie Week themed vendors have popped up in the Altdorf War Quarters and Inevitable City Slaanesh Chambers (oh those poor lost halflings who stumbled into the Inevitable City... or is it the Slaanesh cultists who are the poor ones?). Four vendors sell pies for ingredients; one sells pies at a basic ratio of 2 ingredients for 1 pie, while the other three sell the same pies but with output multipliers so a single pair of ingredients combined with a multiplier can yield 2, 3, or 5 pies. Please check all four bakers and check what you want to spend your event resources on. Other vendors sell items for the LE currency 'Moot Silver Shillings' (which drop from player-kills), such as beer and dyes.


Pie Week Quests
A couple new quests have been added for Pie Week. Six of these called 'Quest for A Pie' use our new race-specific portion of the quest system - meaning that each race has different tasks catered to their racial peculiarities. We hope to use this system more in the future, especially during live events so each race has a more unique take on the festivities. There are also two new branching quests for an event slot item - 'Applebottom's Pie' (Order) or 'Protector's Fee' (Destro); one branch focuses on PvP tasks from T1 to T4, while the other is PvE oriented. These branching quests are not required to complete the LE.


Weekend Warfront: Slaughter Hills

Image

Reikland Hills, a key point of defense in the guarding of Altdorf, have come under assault by the forces of the Raven Host. Those hills afford an excellent position from which a siege could be launched on the city. Make haste to the Hills and secure them for your realm!

This weekend the Slaughter Hills will be the weekend warfront from 12:00 on Friday to 12:00 on Monday Altdorf time. You get +50% XP and Renown in the Reikland Hills scenario, and extra rewards from completing the event tasks.

Bug Fixes

20556 - Rhanz Folner had temporarily wandered off from his Southeast Altdorf post in search of "Rat-men" underneath the city. He's properly returned to his spot now, and of course, there are absolutely no rat-men hiding underneath Altdorf.

20550 - Dwarf starting quest "Fire in the Hole!" has had its rewards updated and improved to benefit all classes.
