Captain Johnny brings dire news to Glenfort: the Notorious Captain Darkthorn and his evil pirate crew are invading Lake Nithus with an eye to be pillaging Glenfort! Join forces with your fellow heroes for an unique world mercenary-only raid to help slay this pirate menace, steal his booty and save Glenfort!

Talk Like a Pirate Day includes:

  • New Tier 19 Chest Armor and Gauntlets!
  • New Tier 19 Weapon! Off-hand Dagger!
  • New Tier 13 Pirate Eye Patches!
  • Unique limited time background!
  • Stocked Pirate Lockbox including all of last year's items!
World Raid: Pirate Invasion

  • The raid will be located on the main map in Lake Nithus.
  • This is unique mercenary only raid where players throughout the world whether in a guild or guildless will have to come together to defeat the pirate invasion!
  • There is no might requirement for the raid but characters must be level 5 or higher to join.
  • The enemies will be scaled to the player's level when fighting through each of the 3 phases.
  • Each raid will have 40 open spots for players to fill before reaching its full capacity.
  • Multiple raids will be spawned at the beginning of the event to help handle the spike users coming online for the event.
  • Our public raid system will continue to monitor each open raid and will only spawn a new raid when there are no more available spots in the raids currently listed in the raid menu. This raid monitoring will run continuously throughout the 12 day event.
  • Failed raids will still give our rewards but at a reduced percentage that players would receive from successfully finishing the raid in Bronze ranking. Make sure you all work together to defeat these pirates!

I hope all the T19 items are available without burning or playing 19 hours per day - the Lucky event with gs-only items was bad enough.

Can't wait for it though, this is one of the best events in the calendar.

I just hope someone is available to fix it faster than it took last year...

The main reason events now start on Thursday is exactly attributed to last years event. It gives a scheduled work day to resolve bugs.

First event. Very excited.
Will last years items be available for direct purchase, or will they only be in lockboxes. Reading the announcement, it sounds like lockboxes only, but I'd like a different answer ;)

It's a raid that gives a reward similar to valour that you save up to buy the event items. Alternatively you can gamble it in the lockbox.

Yes, you will be able to purchase all of the items from the previous years. All items can currently be found in the wardrobe for viewing before the event. Make sure to check out Captain Johnny's Emporium when the event starts!
