The event was not announced by Funcom this year, but last year it ran from 25 February to 17 March 2020, so I suspect it may end on the 17th this year too.

Community - Auno updated to 18.8.53 14.08.2020
By SaavickThe items database on auno.org has been updated to the current patch, 18.8.53.
Many thanks to Nadyita and Leite for creating the actual database dump and to Auno for updating the site with it, especially considering he no longer plays. It is much appreciated!
Auno is currently a few patches ahead of aoitems.com, so both sites complement eachother beautifully. AOItems does have the full patch history and an up to date nano listing, but auno has many useful comments.
AO-Universe supports using both sites in our guides, depending on your preference. You can select your preferences at the top of a guide like so:
