    I keep seeing mentions of Tartarus in posts.

    What/Where is this in game?

    Is it just the POT?

    Is it a new dungeon?

    PS If it is a freaking new dungeon and they only announced it in the livestream....

    It is a new dungeon that is not fully implemented. You could say it's still in "beta." It is in game, but has no connection to the world yet. The only way in at the moment is to teleport to a friend already inside, or use a Zone scroll once you've already been in. It is currently two "levels" with a third being created.

    The elves there have a freaky fascination with collecting player avatar portraits.

    It wasn't supposed to be public yet. Chris goofed up, and then opted to let it stay available rather than shut it down. Up until yesterday, it didn't even have resurrection Ankhs.

    I will be on the lookout anyone in my friends list for this dungeon so I can too have access. If you have access, are in there, please consider friending Greagoir Pendragon. Thank you.

    Same can be said for those of us that don't come to the forums for their information. We also have to hear about things through the grapevine. Frankly, if you can't learn about it in-game it shouldn't exist right?! So relax, calm down, step away from the keyboard and turn off the cap locks. Not everyone has access the way you do, so what's fair is fair...

    You are responding to a post in the forums...
    that complains that info isn't available in the forums....
    by saying that you don't come to the forums for information...

    Who doesn't have access to read the official forums?

    Sort of. I found out about it here on the forums, but that info came from a stream. Chris was letting players in by invitation only during a stream for testing, having forgotten that once inside, the zone was added to their zone list, and anybody could teleport to their friends inside. I get why you're upset, but it's also kinda getting mad that people get to beta test things before general release.

    Chill out a bit, guys.

    I agree with you 100% that the livestream shouldn't be the only source of dev communication, and I've encouraged them to use things like dev blogs. But its not something they planned to make go public, and for the people who know about it, consider it a QA kind of thing; and a lot of the things players learn about in the game they learn from other players, which isn't uncool. Consider this like a test pilot of some web service in a closed beta by Google which is invite only, and people who are already in can send invites to other people. Same kind of thing.

    I wasn't watching the livestream where he showed it off. I just heard previously that he was talking about making a new dungeon; then I saw a bunch of people in my friends list in Tartarus, so I messaged them asking "Is this the new dungeon Chris mentioned? How do I get there? Where's the entrance?"

    Ideally, IMO they'd be doing a dev blog and showing pics of things they're doing in progress. But there are still some things that are going to happen on livestreams. People got there first by teleporting to Chris, if I'm not mistaken.

    If you see a bunch of people on your friends list in a place called Tartarus, teleport there and see what it is. Think of it as a video game adventure.

    Side note: There is no way we can ask Chris to not say anything on his stream that is "new" information and not already announced via release notes or forum announcement. Anyone watching Chris' stream literally watched him making Tartarus. He wasn't gonna black it out.

    Most us just saw people we knew in the dungeon so we just used a scroll to check it out. There was no res points and still being worked on. No entrances in or announcement because its not technically in yet and in testing.

    the only way to know you could get there was from word of mouth and or watching the Friday live stream where it was mentioned.

    If you don't watch the streams you miss out on alot of important things :) I watch mine not live but later in the evenings when I can. Only once in a while can I get on during the day to the streams live.

    This week is literally the first time I've participated in a long time... However, doesn't mean this thread is informational does it? More than 60% of the people I have met in-game almost never come to the forums because of toxicity. Yes more than half. If your curious, you can easily find out the numbers for yourself.


    PS. If you wonder why no one knows about events, or towns, role-playing etc that ALWAYS posted about in the forums... it's because most people don't read them.
