We've fixed an issue causing the Skill Window's Skill Cap input to not handle cases where players enter a Comma instead of a Period for a decimal place, causing the Skill Cap to be set to 0 by error; now you can use a period or a comma.

We've improved House Packing for houses that have many items locked down, it will now pack the items in chunks over a short duration to avoid causing server stalls or lag. During this period you will see a progress bar and will be unable to log out instantly or switch server-regions to ensure that the packing is able to complete and you receive the deed.

Outfitter (Skill Rental):

As previously announced, we will soon be deploying the following Guild & Faction changes.

Guild Faction Assignment:

  • guilds will be required to have a faction assigned in order for members of the guild to be part of a faction
  • Officers & Guildmasters can assign a faction to a guild, but only the Guildmaster can un-assign the faction once it's been assigned
  • upon logging in, if you are in a guild and in a faction and your guild does not have one registered or it is registered to a different faction then you will begin the Faction Resignation process and be kicked from your faction after 7 days unless you leave the guild or your faction is assigned to the guild
  • if you are in a guild and trying to join a faction, your guild must be assigned to a faction and you must join the assigned faction
  • it's optional for guild members to be in the faction or not, but players wishing to be in a faction must be in the same faction as the guild
  • if you are trying to create a guild while in a faction, you will be warned that the guild will become registered to your current faction when you form the guild


23rd Mar 2023 patchnote

We have implemented a new dynamic loot system.

  • Currently it is only active for the "Ice Dragon King", as a test.
  • Loot will scale based on mob difficulty and how many players have dealt damage, plus some other factors.
  • There is a limit cap on maximum drop amounts and limitation for multi-box.

We will look to implement this into other mobs over time and after evaluating this first outcome.

Have fun!


23rd Mar 2023 announcement

From the 1st April 2023, we will no longer support Steam accounts. Those of you currently using them will get a message to that effect when logging into the game, directing you to this form:

https://forms.gle/gMkPMmFS8fw2ep4r8

The good news is we have a process now to transfer your Steam accounts to regular standalone accounts! April 1st is not the deadline for this, and we will continue to accept Steam transfer requests after that time - however note that you will not be able to log in using your Steam account from April 1st.

Please note that while you may have seen the form before, some of the fields have changed. Please review the form again and ensure we have details of both your existing Steam account, AND your new, clean, empty account with NO CHARACTERS to transfer it to.

Please also note we will ONLY be conducting these transfers for Steam accounts. It's a colossal amount of work, and not viable at this time to handle any other transfer requests.

As per the form, once you have submitted a transfer request, it may take a day or two to finalise as it needs to be done during the nightly maintenance window and relies on the availability of staff to do this. Please be patient with us during this time.

This will be the final step we need to take before we introduce our new features. Sound and music will be first off the rank early in April! We hope you're all looking forward to that as much as we are.
