    Possibly. The new "lantern nodes" were always popping up before server up "around" midnight.

    Part three has started on Drachenfels. Completing the quest gives you a chance of winning the house spot there and then so it's best doing it as early each day as you can. Each char on the quest gets one shot per day till it's won.

    I think the reward is one try per account, but you can do it with the other characters even if you lost. Though the wording of the quest contradicts itself. But that part makes sense from what Cal said.

    Do you get it from Geoffrey?

    Because I checked Geoffrey just an hour or so ago on Great Lakes, and nothing.

    Napa's been up for a cpl of hrs now able to do Part 3. I am guessing you can do once per day to see if that chara won. Could be wrong, but that's what I am getting out of it. It could take a week to see if you have won that way

    Per node? You can only do it once per day per char full stop right?

    Nobody has answered this though - why is there mention of you doing it more than once not increasing your chances if you cant do it more than once per day per char anyway?

    It's just to re-assert that what ever day you do it on, you have an equal chance to win the house... of course, those who do it every day across multiple characters and accounts and first thing in the morning edge the odds a little in their favour, but it's hard to see how they could have done it any other way...

    Does phase 3 starting mean you can't do 1 and 2 now?

    You can still do part 1 but you can't do part 2 anymore. Part 2 was finding the spot and it has been found.

    If you got started today, you would need to do part 1 and then do part 3.

    You are getting a chance to win the house with every character that does part 3. You are also getting another chance to get the good items from the war chest.

    The foundations for the new plots are going to be placed in the game soon by Mesanna. They will ALL say that Mesanna owns them even thought the quest text says that you are searching for a way to deed the house (it's a limitation of the game engine). If you win the house, or buy the winning ticket from someone, contact Mesanna at the email address listed on our website and she will transfer the house to you.

    You will be able to keep the winning ticket after she has verified it (she will mark it as having been redeemed and give it back to you.)

    Do your chances increase with having done Part 2? And/or with having done both Parts 2 and 3 multiple times?

    This has been a nice event. Honestly things like this aren't normally my thing but you were careful to make it worthwhile even if someone isn't actually interested in having a house in the Abyss. You've given us both fictional/RP reasons to participate and "real" rewards too. And the fiction surrounding it has been cool and appropriate.

    I have to admit that I wasn't terribly optimistic but you've pretty much won me over on this one. Keep the good work up for Magincia. ;)

    When I tried it late last night I was tired.

    And I kind of *coughs* didn't have my lamp in-hand.

    So I'm betting it was active then too.

    *chuckles*
