Drunk and disorderly in Warhammer's Keg End holiday event


"Keg End is here, with the mud and the blood and the beer!!"

It seems that most of the major MMO titles have gotten into the holiday spirit, including Warhammer Online with its Dwarf New Year's festival of Keg End. The event begins today, December 17th and continues through to January 5th.

We knew a bit about Keg End before. Namely how it seemed to be an in-game event where it's perfectly OK to act like a violent drunk with a burning desire to blow things up, and then brag about it (with some new emotes). Well, Keg End promises to be all that and more, given the event info Mythic Entertainment released today. No matter whether you're Order or Destruction, there's plenty of fun to be had and hell to raise. The best part is you don't need to feel guilty or make excuses the morning after (it wasn't you, it was the 'Frothy Goodness' ale)... although you may be stuck with the new in-game title "The Drunkard" for a while.

Not directly related to the Keg End event, but still added to the holiday presents is another round of changes and improvements to WAR, in the form of Patch 1.1.0c which deployed today. The fixes and improvements affect combat and careers (notably, just because you use stealth abilities doesn't mean enemy players should become invisible to you) and resolves some of the framerate issues when deploying a guild standard.

This is looking to be a good day for Warhammer Online players, so be sure to check out the full story with the Keg End event, and the changes to the game that deployed today.
