Greetings knights!

Feeling lucky? Snatch a shiny Golden Slime Coin from slain slimes, find a Golden Slime Casino in the Clockworks, and give the wheel a spin!

- You should be able to find the Golden Slime Casino in the Clockworks.
- The Casino will only be around through the 31st, so spend your Golden Slime Coins while you can.
- Don’t worry knights. The slimes can’t stay away from Lady Luck too long and the Casino will return at some point in the future.
- Prizes on the wheel may change at any time.

Greetings knights!

Spiral HQ has been working on some improvements while transitioning to Grey Havens. Here are the release notes:

- Update to most of the branding in game to use the new Grey Havens logo. To read more about Grey Havens, please check here.

- Video mode selection has been changed. More windowed sizes may now be available. On “retina” Macs, bogus window sizes that were larger than the virtual screen have been removed.

- The default resolution has changed to now attempt to use your best resolution fullscreen. Existing players will start with their saved screen mode. Please go into the Options and check for your best fullscreen option!

- Improvements to controller detection.

Spiral Knights is FIVE years old! Why, that's almost old enough to wear long trousers!

(*sniffle* They grow up so fast...)

Pile into the Clockworks and help us celebrate Spiral Knights' birthday! Here is the lineup of events:

Today through April 18, 2016: Spiral HQ has assembled prize boxes from the past year together into a Surprise Box.

For details on this box and its contents, visit the wiki here.

Missions: Help Biscotti, the Skylark's Head Chef, avoid disaster in two special missions - Total Caketastrophe and A Gremlin in Knead. Fight Creep Cakes and Batterbots to earn Cake Slice tokens, then visit Maskwell in Haven Town Square to exchange your tokens for:

April 8-10, 2016: The Birdsong Trading Company is holding a three-day giveaway for the Spiral Knights Anniversary celebration! HOW DO YOU GET THE SHINIES?! Just be logged into the game for your chance to win party hats, confetti and other good stuff.

As is their strange habit, the Tortodrones are on their Long Migration again. This is proving irresistible to fiendish denizens of the Clockworks! Take up arms to investigate and defend against this horrible mischief, and explore the Clockworks to gather fiendish glyphs.

The Spiral HQ intel forecasting interns predicts the Tortodrone migration will continue through March 15, 2016. Get in there, protect the magnificent Tortodrones, and do us proud!

As the Lunar New Year approached, our spectacled scientists at Spiral HQ began monkeying around with gear again, trying to find new ways of adapting to this new world. At first, we came up with some real howlers. Marmoset there would be days like this. So, undaunted, we refined these into something golden--the Spiraltail Prize Box. See what might be squirreled away in yours:

- Spiraltail Drakon pods
- Spiraltail accessories (tails, naturally)
- Spiraltail mail
- Spiraltail masks
- Firetail
- Mail of the Firetail
- Mask of the Firetail

The Spiraltail Prize Box will be here through February 16, 2016. You know the drill! Before you roloway, poke your proboscis at all the details.

We are declaring a state of emergency in the Moorcroft Manor Archives, as black kats are storming the area and consuming the precious tomes within! We need all knights of rank 4-1 and greater to gear up and retrieve Ancient Pages from these voracious vermin.

Do the Kataclysmic Confrontation prestige mission and/or fight through kat levels in the Clockworks to find black kats. Then, visit Montague in Moorcroft Manor, or the Mysterious Crafting Machine in Haven, with your collection of Ancient Pages, and craft stuff:
  • Kat Claw hood, mask, cowl
  • Kat Hiss hood, mask, cowl
  • Kat Eye hood, mask, cowl
If you happen to perform (accidentally, we assume) a Dark Ritual (yes, THAT dark ritual) and survive the encounter, you may find yourself in possession of a Black Kat Cowl or a Wicked Whisker. With Wicked Whiskers, dropped for all present party members, the following gear can be made:
  • Kat Claw cloak, mail, raiment
  • Kat Hiss cloak, mail, raiment
  • Kat Eye cloak, mail, raiment
  • Black Kat cloak, mail, raiment, hood, mask
If you have participated in a previous Kataclysmic Confrontation and still have Ancient Page tokens, they are still valid! Ancient Page tokens do not expire.

Katastrophe Returns Prize Box

During this event, Spiral HQ is offering the Katastrophe Returns Prize Box! Contents include:

- Kat Suit Costumes
- Shadow Armors and Helms
- Shadow Accessories
- Seraph'tenna
- Dazzling Gems

Our new Kat Forecasting Intern predicts that the Kataclysmic Confrontation will run through February 16, 2016, and details on the box are here. Best of luck, knights!
