Before we delve into the lore of this game update, we would like to remind everyone that all characters level 10 and over have access to Darkpaw Rising content, without the need to own the most recent expansion! Whether you’re a quester, tradeskiller, raider, or dungeon runner there is something for everyone in this latest Game Update!

The DirectX 11 API Port is also live as of today. Please be sure to check this article for all the information relating to DirectX. Please report bugs relating to DirectX HERE. Now, let’s jump right into the lore before telling you everything you can explore in this GU.

Just gnolling around in this cave...

A hypnotic gnoll shaman has roused the Sabertooth gnoll clan of Blackburrow into a crazed frenzy. Having come to the burrows from a neighboring land on a holy quest, they claim to have been presented an ancient tome of Chirannis by the spirit of Fippy. The stranger convinced the Sabertooth clan that their destiny lies in uniting with the Splitpaw clan!

Soon after the unification of the Karan gnoll clans under the Darkpaw banner, Qeynos begins to experience a collaborative and unrelenting wave of gnoll attacks! Gnolls can be found burrowing up from newly dug tunnels behind the walls of Qeynos now, and powerful heroes of all skills and talents are being recruited to deal with this, at its source – the Darkpaw dungeons. Within the Darkpaw dungeons our heroes find the presence of a third gnoll clan, the Underpaw gnolls.

Grab your gear, weapons, and like-minded adventurers and help to stop this newly formed gnoll coalition from taking over Qeynos. If you fail, who knows at what point they will stop! The future of Norrath is in your hands.
