    We will be bringing down shard Origin for an extended maintenance tomorrow the 31st of July from 8am EDT. At this moment we expect the shard to be back online no later than 11am EDT.
    As always keep an eye on the Herald for updates regarding this maintenance.

    Kai, I know Origin's a pretty quiet shard and a test shard where reverts are possible, but some of us do still play there on a regular basis and kinda like it too. Is there anything we should be aware of or watch out for after the maintenance tomorrow? Are there any problems we just might run into?

    Origin seems to be back from its extended maintenance. Couldn't find any chaos there, wanderer, although I didn't look that far. The extended maintenance also didn't bring back the NPC that gives you the quest to get into central Ilshenar (the Juka and Meer Loremasters are still around though). It also didn't put sugar on NPC vendors, at least the ones I checked.

    Castle Blackthorn looks no different, although you can make it quite a distance into the courtyard after running across the bridge before you're dismounted and your pet is sent to the stable.

    And yes, the EM hall still looks like a strip-joint, with all the lights and the glacial blue stripper's pole that matches the mankini worn by the black-skinned barkeeper named Uriah. (I really think whatever event precipitated the creation of that NPC has gotten pretty stale by now and he should be removed, renamed, or dressed more appropriately. Anyone not in on whatever joke it was and and who was around during the time Calvin Crowner was the producer and who sees it now ought to understand why it is offensive.)
