  1. Wsa silver sales and safety

    Hi everyone, We have noticed an increase in suspicious silver sellers in global and trade chats. While we are doing our best to ensure suspicious accounts are removed, we would like to remind you all to be cautious when buying silver off other players as we may not be able to help. Be sure to only trade with people you trust and remember: IF IT LOOKS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT PROBABLY IS A SCAM. regards, The wurm team.

    What do you find at the end of a rainbow? (See bottom of post for answer) Greetings Wurmians! Apologies for the delay, renovations at the house led to no power, which of course leads to no Wurm, the horror! Legendary problems The next update is scheduled for the 27th of June, and has a specific change planned for it. With this update we'll be removing the ability for Legendary creatures to be located via any location method, GetInfo, Reveal creatures (cast and rune) and pendulums will no longer be able to find Legendary creatures. In addition, we will be changing the Legendary creature spawn requirements to be able to spawn anywhere (with a buffer around deeds). This is a short term solution to come in this update, with a much larger rework planned, although no firm timeframe when as we have Frontier and Epic to work on next. The vote is in! As you may have all seen, the vote about the reset of Elevation is a landslide! We approached with the intention of weighting towards caution but it's a clear 10:1 split in favour of resetting it. As such, we have begun the process of organising our resources to have Elevation reset. the planned dates are: Server goes down 9th July Server goes up with new map 11th July The reason for this is all the behind the scenes database work, as the new Elevation will contain some specific changes to the server (items not transferring and such). I know you're all keen to go into details, as such I'll be hosting a devstream with Darklords and Ausimus this Saturday at 10pm GMT to talk all about the Elevation update. So tune in then! Shadows A sneak peek this week (heh) is the new shadow system coming soon! With the current shadows being very faint and most items looking like they dont have one, Samool has been working on improving that, and it certainly shows! Indy event The independence event will be launching next Friday, and will run the entire month of July! It will not be a one off time event, but much like the midsummers event of the past, where you can run it at any time. A small villager of the Howl, Julia has found out Independence is 10 years old, and wants to throw a party! She'll need your help though, you'll have to travel around and invite a whole bunch of people, with 4 stages! If you invite 1-3, you will get a common version of the reward, 4-6 you will get a rare, 7-9 you will get a supreme, and if you invite all 10, a fantastic version! We'll have info on the start date next week! Community Content This weeks community content is wiluss with their back to nature project! Wiluss is travelling around terraforming some areas to give them more of a natural look. You can see their work on this forum thread here! Nice work Wilus! That's it from us this week everyone, I hope to see many of you this Saturday, makes it far less awkward than talking to an empty room, I've checked. Until then though, keep on Wurming!

  3. wtb Sea Serpent

    Yes but traitors despawn at the end of the mission
  4. A New Elevation

    We'll be reaching out to groups about it and there will be an email to reach old players. So there will be work on that front, but the major epic revamp is planned for later in the year
  5. Deer devs can we have deer colours now

    Plenty of deer in the wild! I want coloured deer too, and wild spawned traited deer. Unfortunately Saromans crayons are occupied elsewhere but I will speak with him about the possibility some time
  6. Independence Pls

    Currently working on it! Max is on the case and checking it out, will have it back up asap
  7. Tips for Safe Trading

    Well said!
  8. Valrei International. 086

    Probably only new ones, the tether is created at spawn
  9. Valrei International. 086

    We will be changing aggro with legendary creatures and re adding tethers for them. This means they will not spawn within moving range to a deed and will not demolish deeds.
  10. There was a third member with alts stealthed as well. In the end we want an end to this drama, the changes coming to the game next week are an attempt to address the rising toxicity within legendary hunting. We are not going to be wasting our time with players harassing each other over dragons, and if these changes don't help and don't have people playing nice we are willing to remove them until such a time as we can rework them completely
  11. As said, no rule exists. Today a player travelled to a server they don't play on, to stand in local and antagonise the people working on that deed. After watching them repeatedly ask for this player to leave them alone the GM team gave a directive to leave and stop harassing the other players. Because this directive was applied to the player it included the alts they had stealthed in a mine nearby. The other player who had alts stealthed in the mine was not told to leave because he had done nothing wrong. This is an attempt to frame being told to leave for harassing players as something related to the unique
  12. A New Elevation

  13. How to kill your own game tutorial

    Damnit retro! Addressing uniques in a major overhaul is coming, this is a short term adjustment just to see how it pans out, we feel the dominance of the existing unique hunting is too heavily biased towards a select few and would like to see about addressing that, our initial run did not include notices and twitter feeds but some players pointed out the issues that could run into, which made sense. So as a trial we'll be removing that too, yes it may mean less uniques hunted and killed, but we're interested to see how it plays out
  14. WWN Emergent Stories - When part 2?

    Hi Alexgopen, thanks for the question. Unlike the lands of Wurm, Valrei, Jackal, Seryl and Haven have been observed to be round. We hope you have a fantastic day!
  15. Valrei International. 086

    No, it's a code name, we've seen some ideas based on the code name and I can honestly say most of them are incredibly inaccurate, others just being merely inaccurate. Your ideas look cool for a travelling campsite though, I do enjoy a good roam
  16. Valrei International. 086

    Removing server/twitter feeds was something we were hesitant in doing, but given the points raised here we feel it's worth a shot. This update will also include removal of server and twitter feed notices. As for dragons bashing deeds, we expect it to happen about as much as it does now
  17. Valrei International. 086

    The issues with them bashing deeds came from dragons being tied to zones that happen to include deeds. That said the amount of bashing likeliness has been reduced
  18. WWN Emergent Stories - When part 2?

    sorry, one shot wonder. However we do have streams at https://twitch.tv/wurmonlineofficial Also I'm a flat wurm society member, these globes are lies
  19. How to kill your own game tutorial

  20. New elevation map

    It's pretty clear the vote is 10 to 1, so the reset will be happening. We'll probably do a special devstream to focus on it all soon!
  21. How to kill your own game tutorial

    I can see about it being adjusted prior to the epic work, but wont be today
  22. How to kill your own game tutorial

    I've listed the lockpicking thing to be looked at and adjusted. And will continue to work with the dev team on the others. And Chaos isn't what Frontier is, which is just a codename
  23. How to kill your own game tutorial

    Okay lets see here

    View from deed - Silvirwolfe Greetings Wurmians! A quick news this week as I am preparing to go away for a week long camping in the wilderness, lucky me! Today marks the 13th anniversary since Wurm went gold, which is amazing! We'll be covering what's been happening in the world of Wurm with events and plans this news, so lets get into it Elevation Reset Poll The plans for the elevation reset are now open for voting! We have had over 160 votes so far and things are going smoothly, if you play PvP and have not yet voted, please take the time to vote, as it all counts! You can discuss the changes in the feature feedback thread here Valrei Invasions The Valrei invasion event finished up this week with a lot of fun had by all. Certainly the most violent events we've had in a long time, with one racking up over 8 kills! Go me. We enjoyed testing the new valrei creature mechanics, and we hope you all had a lot of fun with the format. We'll be working on some more ideas for pop up events for you all to enjoy. In the meantime, tell us what you thought about it! Wurm launcher changes With the coming changes to JNLP ending support we will be shifting to an exe launcher. This will ensure a lot of Java issues will be resolved as it will include our own recommended version of Java. This will also enable us to bring the preview client to Mac! So lots to look forward to there! Independence turns 10! To celebrate the 13th Anniversary of Wurm going gold, as well as Independence turning 10, we will be organising an event with a special commemorative item! The event will be a hunt on Independence towards the end of the month, so get your roadmaps out and study up! Community Content We've been loving you all sharing your distant tree shots, and some have even found their way on social media! It's really awesome to see everyones different views and unique places in the world of Wurm, so keep on sharing them! That's it from me, I'm about to head off on a week long of zero internet, it's going to be great! In my absence though, No wild parties, keep the place running, do your homework, and most importantly, keep on Wurming! Retrograde & the Wurm team
  25. Valrei International. 085
