ATTENTION KNIGHTS

We here at Spiral HQ would like to wish you luck in the Year of the fire snipe… er… Rooster! We’re celebrating the new year by equipping knights with gear that would make any Rooster envious. The Rooster Prize Box is available through March 2, 2017.

These contain all new items in various colors, such as:
  • Buhgok Tails
  • Fowl Cloaks
  • Fowl Cowls
  • Wattlesnipes
  • Feathered Auras

More information on the Rooster Prize Box and its contents may be found here.




An over abundance of roosters has also spurred other creatures to descend on the Clockworks. As you may have suspected, the black kats are once again storming the Moorcroft Manor Archives and consuming the valuable tomes it stores! We need all knights of rank 4-1 and greater to gear up! Do not fear going forward slowly knights; fear only to stand still.

You can find black kats in the Kataclysmic Confrontation prestige mission and various kat levels in the Clockworks. Be sure to collect Ancient Pages and visit Montague in Moorcroft Manor, or the Mysterious Crafting Machine in Haven, to obtain event themed items. If you perform a Dark Ritual and survive the encounter, you may find yourself in possession of a Black Kat Cowl or some materials which will allow you to craft some event exclusive gear.

More information on the Kataclysmic Confrontation can be found on the wiki here. If you have participated in a previous Confrontation and still have Ancient Page tokens, they are still valid! Ancient Page tokens do not expire. The Kataclysmic Confrontation will run through February 22nd.

Greetings Knights,

Are you a real gunslinger? Spiral HQ has decided it’s time we find out! For this weekend we have removed auto-target in all Lockdown matches and we’ll be keeping an eye out for those knights who rise above the rest. Auto-target will be off during PvP matches starting Friday at noon (game time) and ending at 11:59 pm Sunday night.

During this event we want you knights to document your adventures… or misadventures. To that end, we will be offering a few prizes for knights who catch amazing/amusing video of their antics or epic skills.

Can you make it all the way to the summit? If so, you have a chance to win Golden or Silver Solstice Rings. These 4* trinkets protect against fire and freeze with a +1 health bonus. Leave them as-is, or combine them to craft a 5* Grand Solstice Ring trinket!

  • Nog Blaster
  • Jack Froster
  • Scalding Hot Cocoa
  • Humbug Hazer

Greetings knights!

The cold of winter is descending on Cradle. To keep knights moving during the most extreme cold conditions, Spiral HQ has issued chilling new gear. Blend into any frozen environment with frosty gear and accessories.

While these items look frozen solid on the outside--for camo reasons, and also because it looks formidable--they're mighty toasty on the inside. Think of them as Cradle's most efficient travel coffee mug. Take care with the new permafrost aura as it may leave a puddle in warmer places.

Contents include:
* Permafrost Aura (new)
* Crystalline Defender (new, shield)
* Maskeraith (Freeze) Pod
* Arctic Acolyte Mantle (new)
* Arctic Acolyte Hood (new)
* Arctic Disciple Wings
* Arctic Crown
* Arctic Shackles
* Arctic Pauldrons
* Additional new armors and helms
* New accessories

Glacial 2016 prize boxes are available from now through December 11th, 2016, and details on the box can be found here.

Knights will also notice that our seasonal buddies, the Gobble Snipes, are on their yearly migration to...we're not really sure where. Hmm.



A few of these Gobble Snipes seem to want to stay in a few guild halls. At least, we think that's what it means when they enclose themselves in Gobble Snipe Boxes. Should you wish to host one of these fluffy creatures in your Guild Hall, these boxes can be had through December 1, 2016. Check out the details here!

ALERT KNIGHTS!

We have confirmed that the Apocrean Harvester is causing trouble again. Spiral HQ needs your help! For a detailed brief on Cradle's previous encounters with this nefarious entity, go here.

From now through December 5th, venture onto the Grasping Plateau, free trapped souls, and earn Apocrean Sigil tokens for your bravery. Then, use these tokens at the Obelisk of Creation to craft Obsidian weapons and the Grasping Aura.

Our information is clear, you don't want to get caught out there alone--definitely bring your friends with you on this mission, and try not to lose sight of them!

The Auction House will also be stocking some Apocrean themed guild hall furniture to give your guild hall the sense of dread that's all the rage this season.
