Recent fixes and changes:

21st Jan 2023 patchnote

  • All the undead invading Paws now have a chance at dropping Rotting Hands.


21st Jan 2023 patchnote

We're working on a couple of improvements for Factions:

  • Separation of Faction Bases into their own server regions to isolate the Faction fights from Housing in the adjacent areas

  • Guild Faction Assignment:

    • guilds will be required to have a faction assigned, determined by the guildmaster, in order for members of the guild to be part of a faction
    • 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
    • only the guildmasters can assign a faction to a guild
    • 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 - you cannot form the guild with players of another faction

We're giving you some time in advance to prepare for the Guild Faction Assignment changes, so please adjust your characters accordingly to prevent being forcibly removed from your faction later on

These changes are still being worked on and they will be released separately & we'll post patch notes with all of the details when they go live.

10th Dec 2022 patchnote

We've resolved an issue that sometimes causes temporary name changes to characters to erroneously become permanent.


4th Dec 2022 patchnote

From now, if you have Animate Horse summoned:

If your summon is attacking a target and has aggro, if you cast Animate Dead, the skeletons will join forces with your Horse and attack the same target until the target is dead or for 30 seconds, they will then turn on the nearest target.

If you don't have Animate Horse summoned, Animate Dead will stay as it was with a 60 seconds cooldown and attack nearest target.


4th Dec 2022 patchnote

Players entering Faction Events will soon find that they have a random name applied when they enter & guild tag will also be hidden. The random name should appear in all places during the faction event, and once the event ends the name would fall off revealing the character's true name, as well as showing the true name in the Leaderboard. Please let us know if you encounter any issues with the random name not appearing in any cases, like system messages or chat, while it is shown on your character.


4th Dec 2022 patchnote

As you are probably aware, we've had an Early Access watermark in-game while we have continued to work on the project throughout the past few years.

While the project may not be considered "complete" today, we will finally be retiring the "Early Access" watermark and replacing it with a physical scroll item that is given to new characters explaining the "In Development" state of our project.

The Early Access watermark was intended to be a fair warning of potential issues that you may encounter throughout your time in our game, and let's be clear: issues may still arise, even given our best intentions and effort.

We strive to minimalize the issues players run into, and we depend on your participation and feedback to help make that a reality.

Thanks so much for your continued participation, feedback, and support and for sharing the same level of passion that our team does.

We hope to keep making you proud! Keep sharing your feedback and help us shape the future of our beloved project. <3
