01-Jun-2011 – Fremennik Sagas

 

The immortal storyteller, Skaldrun, has been trapped in the frozen floors of Daemonheim for centuries. Players who free him from this chilly prison will gain the opportunity to literally step into the shoes of the protagonists of his Fremennik Sagas, and take on their unique abilities while living out their tales. Skaldrun has three such sagas he’s currently willing to share with you...

 

The first of these sagas is Three’s Company, which marks the first in-game appearance of stoic Temple Knight Sir Owen, seer-sorceress Ariane, and the ever-charming, remarkably skilled and implausibly handsome Ozan (at least that’s how he’d put it). Take control of all three characters as they make their way through the frozen floors to track down a dangerous criminal intent on harnessing the secrets of summoning for his own nefarious ends. This saga is completely available to free-players and members alike.

 

In Vengeance, follow the dark tale of a sole-surviving forgotten warrior as she descends further into madness, despair and fury, all the while seeking retribution for the death of her brothers-in-arms at the hands of a party of adventurers. Players will need to work quickly, as she is constantly fighting the poison in her system, as well as resisting (or succumbing to) her madness.

 

Finally, Thok it to ‘Em gives players some incredibly large boots to fill, as they take on the role of Dungeoneering’s very own skill master: the mighty Thok! Smash, force and headbutt your way through Daemonheim in search of your injured brother, Marmaros, using Thok’s unmatched strength. As well as solving puzzles ‘the Thok way’, you’ll also have to do battle with several of Dungeoneering’s bosses.

 

All of these sagas come in both abridged and unabridged versions. The abridged sagas offer reduced story and rewards, but can be played by anyone who’s found that saga’s ‘memory fragment’ within Daemonheim. The unabridged sagas offer greater rewards and the complete story, but require certain other skill levels to become accessible. In terms of rewards, abridged sagas offer Dungeoneering XP and tokens, while unabridged versions give rewards of XP in the skills required to access the saga (so long as the sagas are completed to 100%, with all secondary objectives found!). All sagas are repeatable, though their rewards can only be claimed once.

The Biggest problem I see here is that they are trying to make us actually do lower floors on a complexity greater than 1, so we actually have to go out of our way just to start this update :sad:

Did i Miss something? Where is the second graphical update? I also had better hopes for the saga, but it seems like this is some fun kind of testing new dungeoneering functions and repeatable questing (very obviously).

Gah! I just finished the frozen floors! :wall:

 

Oh well, still looks like fun. I'm glad they included F2P in this. :thumbsup:

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

Relleka got its graphical update, they just forgot to put it into the initial newspost. ;)

 

Sagas look underwhelming, but should be a nice bit of lore. :^_^:

Someone post pictures as they come to them! :D

Just to make sure, those unabridged exp rewards aren't attainable more than once are they? If they are, 25k Agil or Thiev exp sounds pretty good depending on how long it takes to do it.

Found him. I guess it's my turn to go hide? ;)

 

EDIT: After talking to him and having him return to the surface a Bear Pealt appeared on the ground. This is what happened when I tried to pick up the pelt.

EDIT #2: After talking to him on the surface just west of Thok, I unlocked my first Saga.

The non-dungeoneering XP/token rewards are all a one-time-only reward I think

Reacting impulsively and saying what's on your mind feels oh so good.. for a little, until you realize you just started WWIII.
