D&D Online Unlimited 5th Birthday (2/23/2011)

"Turbine, Inc.  today launched the latest content update to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Dungeons & Dragons Online®: Eberron UnlimitedTM(DDO Unlimited), recently named the Most Innovative MMO of the Decade*.  DDO Unlimited’s newest update introduces a special two-part in-game event, new cosmetic items and a special gift for all players." --GamesPress

Dungeons and Dragons Online Unlimited produced by turbine back in February 28th, 2006 is celebrating the games 5th Anniversary with an in game two day event, including a treasure hunting map quest, and if completed will unlock the "Crystal Cove" area for a limited time. For the duration of the event, from what I can understand an old instance is being brought back to life called "Smugglers Rest".

·         Smugglers Rest (All Levels)
"Players from years past will recognize some of this besieged harbor, now overrun with eager pirates searching for pieces to a strewn pirate map. Adventurers can barter with Euphonia for rewards and access to the treasure of Crystal Cove – but they must all work together to open passage there. Players will explore the region, fight various Pirate-type monsters and collect dropped treasure. On occasion, a treasure map will appear revealing a hidden chest …but beware of nearby pirates." --GamesPress

·         Crystal Cove (All Levels)
Crystal Cove is a hidden mine full of crystals for the taking. Players, solo or party, will protect and manage a team of Kobold miners that will collect the valuable minerals for you. Players will manage resources such as barrels, torches and a team of kobolds while protecting them from invading pirates. Most resources will cost crystals or can be purchased in the DDO Store. Once the crystal collection quota is met, everything else will be distributed as profit to the player party and can be traded with Euphonia for powerful goods. Crystal Cove will offer players to select from levels 1 to 25 to set their party difficulty and scale rewards appropriately."

Special in-game gift.

Players who visit Sailor Calatin in the Harbor and sail to Smuggler’s Rest will receive a new pirate hat that provides players with better luck playing DDO. The pirate hats are distributed according to how long a player has been playing the game, character level, and relative accomplishments. Players will also receive free Traveler Tokens and Blessings of the Traveler to join in the Marketplace Scavenger Hunt live event.
