10th Anniversary 2011[edit]

The 10th Anniversary in 2011 started June 22 and lasted four weeks. There was live parties in Montreal and in game parties as well. A new raid mob Desert Rider was being spawned by giving party gifts to The Tinker obtained from the Desert Nomads wondering the desert. Besides the party gifts Desert Nomads dropped nomad armor parts and social items. In addition, parts for the Org City Sauna building became available again. There was other stuff like hecklers wearing party hats but they still were just as mean as ever.
