Competition System

A new competitive competition system has been added to the leaderboards! These timed events will be available for all adventurers with special prizes for the best of the best! The first competition? Fishing!
This begins the 18th of December at 16:00 GMT and concludes on the 21st of December at 16:00 GMT.

You should receive a warning 30 minutes before the start of the competition, and a popup when the competition officially begins!

The competition will track the new fish that has invaded Lir's Reach, the "Ling". These fish can be caught from any of the new Glacial Waters fishing spots throughout Lir's Reach, and when you actively perform the action of looting this fish, your total will increment on the new Competitions leaderboard between this specific time period, and only during this time.

Although the leaderboards will display data for all servers, players will be able to filter by world on the main page to see the progress on their specific server. Also, take note that the leaderboards are currently slow to update. So don't stop fishing until you receive that final popup saying the competition is over! You'll never know until the end.

Once complete, we will provide the rewards on each server via in-game mail, hopefully by Friday.

The rewards for each place per server are as follows:

1st Place - Yule Champion Angler's Set (Teal fishing fashion with a unique particle) + Yule Competitors Angler's Set (Basic Mauve fishing fashion)

2nd Place - Yule Challenger Angler's Set (Teal fishing fashion with older snow particle) + Yule Competitors Angler's Set (Basic Mauve fishing fashion)

3rd Place - Yule Contender Angler's Set (Basic Teal fishing fashion) + Yule Competitors Angler's Set (Basic Mauve fishing fashion)

4th-10th Runner-Up Places - Yule Competitors Angler's Set (Basic Mauve fishing fashion)

Good luck and happy fishing!
