Memorial Weekend!



Hail, Norrathians!

This upcoming Memorial Day in the United States is a time for us to remember that many of our players – from all across the globe – have loved ones and friends who have served their countries and given the ultimate sacrifice. We are a fantasy game thoroughly not set in this real world, but we are also a community of real friendships that extend well beyond Norrath. We wanted to take a moment to remember, pay tribute, and offer an opportunity for all of us to come together this weekend.

This weekend, we will be commemorating Memorial Day with in-game bonuses. Take advantage of these bonuses on all servers:

  • +50% Experience
  • +50% Faction
  • +50% Rares

We will also enable a 20% off sale for all Members in the marketplace. We wish you all a safe and happy weekend!

The bonus weekend will begin at 12PM PT on Friday, May 24, 2019, and will end at 12PM PT on Tuesday, May 28, 2019.
