New for 2023: ShadowScythe vs SpacePirates!
Did you see that streak of red in the stars? That was left behind by the Hydra's Hark after its crew and Commander, Gallaeon, plundered one of Empress Gravelyn's fortresses, attacking from the sky. She sent one of her DoomKnights to bring Gallaeon to heel, and if you help him battle the crew + captain, he's got orders to let you pillage 'til your pack can't hold anymore rewards.
- /join doompirate
- Talk to Dusk to begin your quest to help subdue the crew
- Defeat Commander Gallaeon
- Victory unlocks a bonus quest + challenge fight against the Captain and crew
Commander Gallaeon & Crew Challenge
After you defeat Gallaeon in /doompirate, take him and his entire crew on at once. This nine mob challenge might be difficult to overcome, but if you are victorious enough times, you can earn Dusk's DoomTech DoomKnight armor, a house guard, and the Shadowscythe Pirate Warship house for yourself!
If you have the ShadowScythe Pirate Commander Upgrade Bonus pack, you've automatically unlocked a version of the house with a color-customization room!)

Celebrate Brasil's Independence Day
Head to /Mythperception Island in Terra da Festa and talk to Batista, the Folklore Spinner. He's got a new tale to tell: the legend of the Boto Cor Rosa! Battle the Boto Cor Rosa to collect all new reward drops, plus gather Pink Gems of the Sea to create the Pastel Privateer set in Batista's merge shop.
Then take on the bosses in /iara and /ultraiara to earn merge shop resources to create epic new reward items themed after Iara's tail (er... tale).
Release Plan Updates: Helms + Armor Delayed
Good news: The hair shop update with a selection of new hairs/beards is live now!
Temporarily-less-good news: The male armor art for Dusk's DoomTech DoomKnight armor is done; the female is in progress still. I needed to delay that and the helms / morphs due to the hurricane + and an unplanned oral surgery.
I dont want to sugar-coat things; this delay was really unfortunate... and that's the tooth. We'll bridge the gap with more gear ASAP. The female armor will be added first, and I am planning to add a batch of helms next week.
