The world of Erinn runs on two clocks: the in-game clock and the real clock. The real clock uses real life time and the real life days of the weeks. The in-game clock runs on an alternate plane in which time runs forty times faster than what we're used to.
Times of In-Game Days
|Real Time||Erinn Time|
This timetable is accurate for both AM and PM times, PST.
- In-game daylight spans from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM, and in-game night spans from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM, each of which lasts 18 real minutes.
- At 6:06 PM, Moon Gates open and last until 6:04 AM. Likewise, Mana Tunnels open up at 6:06 AM and close at 6:04 PM.
- At 6:00 AM, Transformations which may be used once per in-game day will reset their timer. Using a transformation skill shortly before this time will result in it being used for the previous day, and allow you to use a transformation skill again right after it finishes.
- At 12:00 AM, the colors of equipment sold in stores and the limited items sold by merchant imps will change.
- If are already inside the store at 12:00 AM, you must leave the store and reenter.
Each Real Day
Each real day of the week directly affects certain attributes in-game and corresponds to the in-game month. Each month is named after different Celtic festivals, Celtic myths being what the game is based on. Note that these monthly effects do occasionally change as new patches are released. See the list below for each of the effects. Months change at 12:00am PDT (3:00am EDT)
