  1. 1x - new player friendly - vanilla RPvEvP More details incoming.
  2. Hello Everyone, This week we have have been busy with setting up a PvP server on Wurm Unlimited. We would like to invite you all to come play on this server. Server information - Forums Dutchland PvPMod information - Forums Dutchland PvP Please do not forget to register to the forums when playing on the server. All the information input is welcome. So we can keep up updating the server and make it even better! Map:
  3. Visit: http://www.sklotopolis.bplaced.net/ We are LIVE! Livemap: http://andistyr.github.io/wu-map/ We will be hosting a modded Wurm Unlimited PVE server. This server will have many features which will remove most of the hard grinding and make Wurm even more fun to play. On this server there will be an Wurm style economy with one big market place where people can sell there items to other people. There also will be many events (we try to make them weekly) where you can earn items and coins. With this server we hope to give you and us a fun experience playing and surviving together in the big world of Wurm Unlimited. Down below we have listed a bunch of the features our server will have: PVE: Server specs: -1 Server -200 Slots -4096x4096 map - http://andistyr.github.io/wu-map/ -40k mobs The Team The Team is playing Wurm Online since now more than 8 years and this mostly excessively. Furthermore it also happens that both Dominikk and myself are versed in programming and specially Dominikk has already impressively shown some great features. Combined we have a service record that pretty much covers every server and gameplay aspect, we slayed Dragons on snowy peaks, fought great battles on land and see, laid siege to impressive fortresses, made a living as merchants, worked as a low level staff member for some time, hosted events and constructed dozen of villages. This experience gives us a really good understanding of how this game works, not just mechanically, but also how it can excite you every time again. Dominikk, Sklo, Engineer Everyone is dedicated to make this work and guarantee the best wurming experience. Dominikk is working as Linux and Windows server admin for a living and is determined to keep your progress save. He put down a backup plan so you can see how serious we take it. Data Safety Backups will happen every 3 hours daily and every Monday there will be a weekly backup. They will be stored local on the server in Germany and all backups are transferred to a server in Austria about 800km away too. Further more we keep daily backups up to one month and weekly backups up to 6 months. So if something goes wrong we likely can restore ingame items up to 6 months.

  4. Prenote: Terms such as "Offensive CR" and "Defensive CR" are used throughout the suggestion. This does not necassairly mean actual CR codewise but rather modifiers that gives bonus hit chance for offensive actions or miss chance for defensive actions that would equate to the CR mentioned. Basics All 5 paths (Love, Hate, Insanity, Power, Knowledge) got their own individual passives. These passives scale linearly based on player level starting with level 2. (10 levels in total) Meditation abilities are not dispellable... since they arent spells. The max cooldown between path levels is reduced to 1 week and thus lets players experiment with diffrent paths without feeling they are horribly gimped by doing so. The skill level is what truly restricts the player. Love performs 3x healing for all non-spell sources. (+20% per level. This includes cotton, lifetransfer, regen and mycelium absorbation) Hate gets 20% dmg bonus and 20% offensive cr bonus. (2% per level. does not stack with passive faith bonuses.) Insanity gets 20% dmg reduction (2% per level.) Power gets 30% stamina reduction (3% per level) Knowledge gets 25% skill increase (2.5% per level) Now with that out of the way, here comes the fun stuff. Each path has 4 abilities that are choosen when to unlock. New ability choices are given at level 4, 7, 9, 11. One ability is unlocked at a time. Love Refresh Unchanged. Enchanted tile same functionality except that enchanted tree tiles yield 3x harvest. Love effect When used on the ground it makes all hostiles in local friendly for 10 minutes. If used towards a specific non-unique non-tamed non-valrei non-human creature it will perform a strong charm/dominate effect and turn it into a pet. Includes unusual types of creatures that normally cant be turned into pets, like whales and kingdom animals. (sidenote: You can currently ride aquatic creatures like crocodiles in water. Human and Humanoid isn't the same thing.) Cooldowns are unchanged. Soothing presence Permanent aggro-range reducing buff (similar to the newbie buff). Also makes taming and breeding easier. Power Erupt/Freeze Allows the creation of lava on rock/cliff tiles aswell as turning lava into rock. Same timers as currently but domain influence doesn't matter. Erupt only works inside your own kingdom like currently. Erupt can also be used on forges and ovens. Thereby lighting the oven/forge, fueling it and turning all items inside them searing hot. Freeze can be used on any container and instantly cools all content within. Elemental Immunity / Lava Walker Passive buff that gives permanent 50% reduction to all sources of fire, ice, acid and water. Active 30 minute ability with 3h cooldown. 50% reduction to all sources of fire, ice, acid and water. (the passive and active ability stack as additions. thus giving full immunity togheter) Might 2 hour ability with 4h cooldown. 50% increased carrying capacity and 50% longer stuns. Wanderer 60% stam reduction for movement (includes walking, swimming, riding, sailing, climbing, dragging). Does not stack with the level-based passive. Knowledge Get Info Combination of level 1 and 3 get info. Thus giving general information, affinities and carrying weight all at once. Also gives +4CR in combat against that specific target for the user. 1h cooldown and the effect last 15 minutes. Survey Area Slightly modified Get info level 3. Informs you of all creatures and settlements in local aswell as showing all tracks of the past 3 wurm days (same as tracking) at your location. 1h cooldown. No skill loss Unchanged. Attention to detail Passive that gives +2 radius for prospecting/analyzing, 10% higher chance for rarity rolls to succeed and +2 passive CR. Hate Rage Rage: Gives 4x increased damage from bashing and 25% dmg bonus to siege engines for 15 minutes. 1h cooldown. Frenzy +50% attack speed and -35% defensive CR for 1 minutes. 15 minute cooldown. (also modifies minimum swing timers) Roar Turns all agressive entities in local passive against the character for 2 minutes and breaks their combat with the character. (This includes guards and kingdom animals) Also provides 2 defensive cr for the duration. 30 min cooldown. Targeted at the ground. Hatred Passively adds a 1 minute debuff to anything that hurts you. If the person who gave the debuff attack the person/creature with the debuff they receive +2 offensive CR. Insanity Break Reality Teleports the character to a random tile on the server, heals all wounds, removes all spell effects, gives a 10 minute +25% speed boost and +5 CR. Also performs a Fill effect. Same restrictions as normal teleports. Makes the eyes of the user go black for the duration of the effect. Unstable Passively gives 15% dmg reduction in two resistances that shifts to random new ones every minute. Imagination Activated ability that removes the largest wound of the user and gives single-target spell immunity for 5 minutes. 45 min cd. Also spawns 2 random insanity illusions that only the user sees. Nightmare Activated ability that spawns a neutral shadow being (translucent and black shaded fog spider, wolf or wraith) that attack the closest hostile entity with the power of a dominated troll and dissapear after 30 seconds. 30min cooldown. Summary Poor abilities removed New abilities added Choices Rewards the player from the get go and keeps giving more things as skill and level progress. Thus keeping it very newbie friendly More choices in how the player wish to progress and if they want to try a new path after achieving high skill it wont take long to get high meditation level again.

  6. Discord | Niarja | Twin Peaks Map | Legacy Map | Arena Map Basic Server Information Action Timers: 5x Skill Gain: 3x Map Size: 2048x2048 PvE, 1024x1024 PvP Creatures: 50,000 PvE, 7,000 PvP Field Growth: 2 hours Wyvern Mods Bounty - Bounty is calculated off creature strength, not pre-set by set values. The stronger a creature is, the more money you will earn for defeating it. This is algorithmic and not pre-set. Strong creatures also have a chance to drop special Crystals, which is a subsystem within itself. Champion creatures can drop special loot, including enchanted tools, moon metal, masks, and even a bone. Currency is deposited directly into your bank. Mastercraft Achieving 90+ skill and then going further is now more worthwhile than ever. Skills over 90 affect skill checks, reducing the difficulty further as you increase skill above 90. At 99, the curve increases, up to double the effect at 100 than you would have at 99. Rarity of tools now provide a similar bonus, decreasing the difficulty of skill checks per rarity level. These changes use the player's actual skill, not epic curved skill. Custom Creatures - New and existing creatures are enabled on the server, adding variety. Typed Creatures - Creatures can spawn with random types even outside of a den. This includes bred animals. You can randomly attain a champion hell horse from 2 non-champion hell horses. Epic creatures: Sol Demons and Worgs have been enabled as natural spawns. Lava Fiends spawn naturally in sandy areas. Charger - A large, spectral hell horse. Non-aggressive, and capable of being lead without taming or dominating. It spawns frequently in steppe and rarely in sand areas. The charger is very specifically meant as an easily obtained "speed" mount. It is also a large stallion, giving the player a higher seat and providing a height advantage in combat. To offset the ease of use, there are two drawbacks: It requires 37 body control to mount, and has negative natural armour, meaning it will take more damage than even an ungeared horse would. Chargers can also be equipped with gear, so their potential speeds can be higher than Wyverns. Chargers can be bred with other chargers. There is also the possibility of dens for chargers, allowing them to be typed (fierce, greenish, even champion). These can of course also be bred into the Chargers. Large Boar - Low-Medium difficulty creature. Spawns in deserts and forests. Inflicts crushing wounds. Forest Spider - Medium difficulty creature. Spawns in the forest near grass and trees. Can inflict poison wounds. Spirit Troll - Medium-High difficulty creature. Spawns in snow. Can inflict frost wounds. Giant - High difficulty creature. Spawns near grass and trees. Can inflict acid wounds. Avenger - High difficulty creature. Spawns in tundra. Can inflict frost wounds. Horned Pony - High difficulty creature. Spawns on enchanted grass (haha good luck). Inflicts internal wounds through the magic of its horn. Can be tamed, dominated, mounted, lead, and bred. Climbs up to 80 slope as a mount, and is between horses and wyverns in speed, but can be equipped with both saddle and horse shoes. Requires 35 body control to ride. Facebreyker - A custom unique creature, dropping a unique item and blood when defeated. Wyverns - High difficulty creature. Different types spawn in different areas. Wyverns are small dragonkin creatures that serve as mounts. They are amphibious mounts, and can be ridden across water without dismounting. Wyverns are small dragonkin creatures that serve as mounts. Wyverns generally inflict elemental wounds according to their color. Wyverns can usually be tamed, dominated, mounted, lead, and bred. Climbs up 100+ slopes as a mount, and is slightly faster than Chargers without gear. Wyverns require relatively high (30-45) body control to mount, depending on type. Custom Items - Many custom items to improve quality of life, or simply give players end-game gambling to create that truly epic item they've always wanted. Affinity Orb - Grants the player a random affinity when consumed. Enchant Orb - Comes with a random enchant. Can be consumed to transfer the enchant to any item. Depth Drill - Drills a tile corner, revealing the amount of dirt until you hit rock. Beyond that, it can also locate nearby ores. Disintegration Rod - Sold at a merchant, this removes 1000 hits from any vein (no ore is provided), or instantly destroys a cave wall (like the Disintegrate spell). PMK Wagons, Banners, and Flags - Art from PMK's in Wurm Online can be crafted on Wyvern Reborn. Like the art from The Crusaders? You can make it here, then mix and match that with an Ebonaura wagon. Chaos Crystals - Dropped from powerful creatures, this is a volatile crystal that can be infused on items for a variety of outcomes. It can increase rarity, or destroy the item outright. Uses the "Artifacts" skill. Enchanters Crystals - Dropped from powerful creatures, this crystal can adjust the enchant properties of an item. Uses the "Artifacts" skill. Mass Storage Unit - A massive storage unit designed to hold multiple BSB's, FSB's, chests, and crates, all in one neat window. Crafted with over 70 Fine Carpentry. Arrow Packs - Craft 40 arrows and a quiver into an arrow pack. Improve the arrow pack, then unpack to receive a quiver with 40 arrows of the QL of the arrow pack. This also transfers any enchants from the Arrow Pack to all 40 arrows. Titans - Legendary creatures exist exclusively on Wyvern Arena, obtaining special abilities and dropping epic items. Titans are designed to cripple groups of players attempting them. If you are interested in looting easy-to-kill players, look for the messages in GL-Freedom and interrupt their attempt. Titans cause lightning in the sky from where it's being fought. A single player should be capable of killing multiple who are attempting a Titan. Titans have unique abilies and "raid mechanics" that players need to be aware of. Many are not telegraphed, but they do need to be reacted to. Mindlessly hitting the the titan until they're dead like a normal unique is not a viable strategy. Titans will drop a single "Titan Weapon" upon defeat - these weapons generally break the rules of the game and in general have higher stats than normal weaponry. They do, however, come with a downside of being un-improvable. They can be repaired. Titans do not regenerate. Keep this in mind when attempting one, as it may be wise to back off, regroup, and re-enter combat in some situations. The titans specifically move extremely slow, so outrunning them, even on foot, should be possible. All Titans spawn minions to aid them. These creatures have extremely high sight (meaning they chase very far) and move very quickly. Armoury: Weapons & Armour Rework - All the weapon and armour systems have been reworked from the ground up for Wyvern Reborn. Minimum swing timer is 2 seconds instead of 3 seconds. This opens up the opportunity for extremely fast-attacking weaponry to make its way into combat. Knives are now an acceptable weapon. Armour Damage Reduction has been reduced - No more 80% flat damage reduction. The highest available is the new Glimmerscale set at 72%, and it is extremely hard to obtain. With values now lower than before, it opens the opportunity to actually use the glance rate and damage effectiveness bonuses from the lower damage reduction armours. Dual Wield has been reworked - There is now a reason to wield two weapons. The offhand now swings at precisely 1/2 it's normal speed, and that's it. No more crazy amount of checks and balances and random numbers being thrown into the mix, just a really simple dual wield system that works and is effective to a point. Weapon Rarity - Weapon rarity matters, reducing swing timer by 0.2 seconds per rarity level. Shield Enchants - Aura of Shared Pain now functions on shields. However, you will need to cast a damage enchant as well to make it function: Rotting Touch, Flaming Aura, Frostbrand, or Venom. The damage aura determines the type and amount of damage that gets reflected on block, and Aura of Shared Pain power determines the chances the reflect will work. Phasing - Shields are absolutely required in vanilla mechanics to remain competitive in PvP. This is no longer the case (sort of). With the dual wield changes and a new spell, "Phasing", you can now penetrate the shield of a defender quite easily. The Phasing enchant competes with WoA/BotD/Nimbleness for an enchant slot. As an effect, it increases the difficulty of the defender to block with shields when attacking with that weapon. This, combined with the faster swing timer, makes shields much easier to penetrate and deal real damage to the opponent. Weapon Rebalancing - Polearms have been buffed. Axes have been improved. The whole system has undergone drastic adjustments and the weaponry meta is entirely different on Wyvern Reborn. New Weapons: Warhammer - 1 handed weapon, uses Warhammer skill. Slow attack speed, but hits extremely hard. Knuckles - 1 handed weapon, uses Weaponless Fighting skill. Extremely fast attack speed, somewhat weak damage. Club - 1 handed weapon, uses Huge Club skill. Moderate attack speed, moderate damage. Long Spears are now 1 handed weapons. New Armour: Spectral Armour - Crafted from the hide of Spectral Drakes, this armour is lighter than any other. Requires high leatherworking to create and is generally quite scarce. Glimmerscale Armour - Glimmerscales are crafted from a metallurgy between dragon scales and glimmersteel. Once created, 10kg of glimmerscale is used to create a set of glimmerscale armour, the highest damage reduction armour available. Movement speed penalty, however, is inbetween plate and dragonscale. Spellcraft: Spell System Rework - All spells have had a balance pass and been tweaked to custom server settings. Maximum faith increased to 200 - This opens up a whole new world of possibilities, including casting high-favor spells like Life Transfer without a link. Minimum Priest Faith reduced to 10 - You can now become a priest at 10 faith. You'll be able to cast spells and work on channeling earlier than ever before. Favor Gain Rework - Favor regeneration now ticks once per second, instead of once per 10 seconds, for smaller amounts. Overall favor regen has been increased. Rite Reworks - Rites now have special additional benefits to encourage casting them. Furthermore, they require less overall prayers to cast, and can be cast more frequently. Examine Creature Spell Effects - You can examine a creature and see it's spell effects. (Truehit has been cast on it, so it has combat vision and aiming. [28]) Improved Negating Effect Messages - When casting enchants, the message explaining why you cannot cast over something else is now very specific. ([21:01:43] The longsword is already enchanted with Blessings of the Dark which would negate the effect of Wind of ages.) Spell Changes: Light of Fo has increased cast difficulty, reducing its effectiveness in combat. Scorn of Libila no longer requires enemies to be damaged, and instead heals 2 wounds on all allies on every cast. Dozens of spells have had their faith requirement, difficulty, cast times, or favor costs adjusted. New Spells: Harden - Enchantment for any item, reduces the amount of damage the item takes with use. Phasing - Enchantment for weapons. Defenders will have a harder time shield blocking attacks from a Phasing weapon. Competes with WoA/BotD/Nimbleness for enchant group. Bag of Holding - Enchantment for containers. Increases the size of the container, allowing it to store up to 4 times the initial amount based on power. Summon Soul - Allows a player to summon another player. Very useful for unique slayings. Replenish - Vynora only. Cast on a liquid container to have it automatically refill with water. Works on fountains, barrels, buckets, waterskins, etc. Libila Enabled - Libila is completely enabled across all maps on the server, as well as all features that come with her, such as mycelium and zombies. Kingdom Offices - An item called a Creature Token will drop from aggressive creatures you slay. These can be crafted into other types of tokens which can be "bid" for offices. These are the Kingdom Titles generally reserved for PvP Kingdoms/PMK's, such as Royal Priest, Royal Avenger, etc. A minimum bid of 10 is required to obtain the title. From that point forward, whoever has the highest bid obtains the title. Custom Deities - Two player gods have ascended, Breyk and Cyberhusky. These deities were hand-crafted, from their passives to their spell lists. They are not randomly generated. Breyk - White Light, Industrial, Nature-Focused. Designed to have some of the best enchants the gods have to offer. Oakshell, Excel, Truehit, and the plethora of other combat buffs in Breyk's arsenal are meant to be utilized in conjunction with their enchants. Combined with Cure Light and Scorn of Libila for a minor off-healing role, Breyk is intended as a "support" role for other players in combat. Cyberhusky - Black Light, Warrior, Combat-Focused. Starting with the "Warrior" attribute for 25% increased damage in combat, it's immediately clear what Cyberhusky is meant for. Designed with the unique combination of Dominate and Rebirth, you can bring a powerful creature into combat, then use it again after it's slain. Backed up with some of the best combat spells including Drain Health, Drain Stamina, and Light of Fo, Cyberhusky is meant to be in the fray at all times. Unique Creature Improvements Rapid Uniques - Uniques spawn very frequently, allowing uniques to be slain on a near-daily basis and making drake/scale more attainable. Treasure Boxes - Any player that deals damage to a unique is granted a treasure box. These can be opened for a cache of random loot, so players are not left with simply a blood to show for their efforts. Moon Metal Vein Blessings - When a unique is slain, it blesses the world with 20 adamantine/glimmersteel veins. This improves moon metal availability as the server progresses and makes moon metal a "renewable" resource. Reapers & Spectral Drakes - After a unique dies, in its wake spawns a special creature. Spectral Drakes for dragons/hatchlings, and Reapers for the rest. Upon defeat, they will grant an affinity orb (consumed for an affinity) and enchant orb (random enchant from 90-120 power with a 1-time transfer to any item of your choice). This allows players to get multiple affinities outside of PvP, and gives players an alternative to casting for high enchants. Increased Armour - Uniques have had their armour increased across the board. They're not as trivial as other servers, and will require effort to slay. Extra Corpse Loot - Dragons and hatchlings now have extra chunks of hide and scale on their corpse, providing more loot to give away than just a rare bone. Movement Tweaks Mounts and vehicles can now climb significantly more slope, up to 150 in some cases. Boats are much faster and generally more affected by wind speed. Vehicles have had their speed increased across the board. New mounts are available to hitch to your wagons and carts. Quality of Life - There are over 2 years of QoL changes from Wyvern. Here's a few: Fatigue Action Override - You can now make fatiguing actions from vehicles and mounts. Improve from a horse. Build from your wagon. Sow from your cart. You no longer need to "be on solid ground" to do that anymore. Leather and Logs can now be combined, allowing you to save a good enchant. Rarity system has been significantly improved. Fantastic items are now more attainable. Life Transfer no longer clashes with damage mods. Life Transfer stacks with every other enchant. Sickles and Staves can be crafted from moon metals. Statuette QL and rarity now impacts spellcasting. Shields can take less than 0.01 damage when you block. Added a "Receive all mail" button to mailboxes. It will automatically accept up to the first 100 non-CoD mails that were sent to you and place them directly into the mailbox. Added an "Unequip all armour" button when interacting with equipped items. It will... well... unequip all your armour. Eye and Face shots are redirected to head shots. This makes open helms and similar headgear viable, not a handicap. Food and drink timed affinities are now universal. If you get a Fletching affinity from a drink you make, so will everyone else. Damage taken by items over 90 have been re-scaled. An item improved to QL100 is immune to damage and will never decay. Loot Assistance messages are broadcast when a unique creature is slain, randomly ordering participants for loot distribution (if it's wanted by the slaying group). It also displays rough estimates of how much damage each player did to the creature. Creatures born on enchanted grass have a random trait removed immediately on birth (like an auto-genesis). Mailboxes, Trash Heaps, Altars, and Bell Towers can be loaded for transport. Body action to check your bank balance. Public Mods Ash Produce - Ash will be automatically generated over time from forges. Bag of Holding - A spell for all priests that enlarges the size of containers. Better Digging - Dirt is dug directly to your cart/wagon into crates, or dropped directly on the ground. Bigger Houses - Doubles the maximum size of houses you can create. Bulk Transport - Removes the limit on moving items to/from bulk storage containers. Craftable Pauldrons - All pauldrons are able to be crafted, with the right amount of skill. Creature Age - Bred creatures grow to the Mature stage faster, enabling players to ride sooner after they're born. Crop Mod - Fields do not wither. Fire Burn Time - Shows an indicator when examining a lit object of how long it's expected to last. Harvest Helper - Announce harvest seasons on player login. Inbreed Warning - Provide players with a warning if they try to breed related animals. Increase Merchant Items - Merchants can hold up to 100 items. Meditate Mod - Guaranteed meditation success, no 10 tile movement requirement, and 1/10th path delay. Spell Mod - Removes priest restrictions. Stable Master - Allow for animal transfer between islands. Starter Gear - Improved set of starting equipment for new players. Timer Fix - Improves timer actions and removes bugs related to Wurm Unlimited regarding enchants. Treasure Maps - Players can find or buy treasure maps and go treasure hunting. Once they find the marked spot, they can dig up the treasure, defeat the mobs, and unlock their loot! Wyvern Arena Wyvern Arena is our 1k by 1k PvP environment. It is meant as a hunting/roaming server, and not as a kingdom warfare server. Epic Curve. Players on Wyvern Arena enjoy the benefit of the epic curve, increasing skills to allow them to fight more in line with higher-skilled players. Kingdoms and Deeds are disabled. You're free to build if you wish, but it will not be defended by NPC guards. Bounty and Fight Skill increased. Creatures in Wyvern Arena reward 2.5x bounty and fight skill when slain. Faith and Meditation on kill. Creatures in Wyvern Arena reward a meditation tick and mild faith gain when slain. Crystal Multiplier. Creatures in Wyvern Arena drop 3x as many crystals as those on the PvE environment. Farwalker Twigs & Stones disabled. Due to the nature of the Arena, twigs and stones are disabled. Teleport and Escape. Players on the PvE server can teleport to the Arena using a 1-minute channel body action. They can then escape using a 2-minute body action from the PvP server, returning them to the PvE environment. The escape is blocked by enemies in local. Server Rules Intentional Griefing will not be tolerated. Macros are allowed under the condition the player is actively monitoring their character. Our definition of "Macro" is when the game is being impacted when the player is not there. Using mods that do multiple actions is fine. Something that automatically does those actions when you are not present is unacceptable. You must be present and playing, otherwise it may be considered a macro. Be respectful - we wont be removing anything, except seriously offensive or pornographic material. Feel free to express yourself, but common sense is key. Client modifications are allowed. I personally encourage the use of client mods that make life easier, such as LiveMap and All of Bdew's Client Modifications. WurmESP and similar are also allowed. Any client mods which negatively impact other players are advised against and will be dealt on a case-by-case basis. Flyhacks, speedhacks, and similar are forbidden and being caught using them will result in immediate ban without appeal.
  7. Wurm University is a training Player Made Kingdom (PMK) in Wurm Online that exists to train new players in the basics of life on the Chaos PvP server. The University will build a strong PvP reputation in HOTA, roaming PvP and raiding when required. It will have robust management with Chaos veteran players to help build knowledgeable lecturers (instructors) and quality students. The heart of the kingdom resides in teamwork through PvP, kingdom events and cooperative help in the alliance chat channel. Wurm University’s objective is to teach players how to play Wurm Online on Chaos and create more content for all players on Chaos. In order to accomplish this mission we will constantly adapt, evolve and change as Wurm changes. Players are welcome to join us to learn what they can and either strive for a higher position within the Kingdom to help with the newer players, or join another PMK that they are interested in. Wurm University can provide guidance and knowledge on how to survive and thrive on the Chaos server. Our experienced players known as Dean's, can help newer or older players to establish themselves and gain know-how to play as a successful Chaos player. The Kingdom can currently provide: an escort from freedom servers to Chaos established deed (currently the capital) - with room for player built housing. horses kingdom armour sets kingdom weapons basic tools food (nutrition and CCFP) Other kingdom provided wares can be added as the kingdom grows and we have more players to share the load. Wurm University wants newer or older players that are willing to give the Chaos server a try. We want keen and enthusiastic students to learn all there is about Wurm Online and we want the experienced freedom players to shorten the newer players learning curve; and possibly learn a thing or two about the different game mechanics that the Chaos server provides. Our only requirements for player involvement in the kingdom are simply that you: have a premium active account; can ride a horse (21 Body Control); and have a minimum of 70 fight skill. On specific request, we will accept very new players without the two skill requirements if the person is requiring the knowledge or assistance to grind these two specific skills. However, these skill levels will be mandatory before a player can receive Kingdom armour or weapons. If you are new to the game or a veteran freedom player that would like to experience the rush of full loot drop PvP, then consider joining Wurm University. You can apply to join on our forums at: http://www.wurmuniversity.com/f2-applications
  8. Ever since the new permission system was added, many things that were normally possible on the PvP cluster Epic became impossible. Many of these problems seem to be unintended bugs, and numerous complaints have been raised about them, but for the most part they have still not been fixed. This thread is for compiling a list of all of the permissions issues that epic has experienced since the addition of the new permission system, and ways that game mechanics have changed for the worse or become impossible under the new system as opposed to the old. As you post your discovered permissions bugs and complaints, I will add them to this post. Format your replies like Problem: How it used to work: A solution: Before you get into reading these, here are the most important issues that would clear up a lot of these problems: LAWS SHOULD NOT BE UPHELD UNLESS THERE IS A LIVING TEMPLAR TO ENFORCE THEM. PERMISSIONS SHOULD NOT BE UPHELD UNLESS THERE IS A LOCK ATTACHED. THE OPTION TO BREAK THE LAW MUST BE AVAILABLE. New permission system issues: Laws are upheld without live templars Problem: Deed laws are enforced even if the deed hired no templars, or even if all of the templars are dead. This has been very abusable by unjustly making actions impossible, and has allowed enemies to use deeds on homeservers in order to prevent their boats from being picked by defenders there. How it used to work: Living templars were required for deed laws to be enforced, and to break the law you had to kill templars before doing illegal actions, or go unlawful and break the law, thus putting you on KOS. If the deed had no templars, then you could do whatever you wanted. A Solution: Make deed laws take no effect on pvp servers unless there is a living templar. Allow players the option to break the laws, with the consequence that the templars will attack them and KOS them on that deed. Leading on enemy deeds Problem: We cannot lead any untamed horses on enemy deeds, even as unlawful or without Templars, which means we can not raid horses to use for PvP or raiding homeservers How it used to work: You could lead horses on enemy deeds at any time, even if the templar was alive and the permission was not allowed, because why would you abide by an enemy's laws? A solution: Either have enemy deed laws not apply to players not of their kingdom, or require a templar to be alive to enforce the laws. In the past laws didn't take effect unless a templar was alive, which meant you could kill a deeds Templars to break laws as any kingdom, but this is no longer the case, making raiding often either much more difficult or even impossible in certain situations if you are same kingdom Unlocked unowned vehicles can't be boarded on deeds Problem: You cannot embark on an unlocked vehicle on a deed if it doesn't have you in its permissions, even if its unlocked, you are unlawful and the deed has no templar How it used to work: Unlocked vehicles were always usable by anyone, because a lock should be required to enforce their permissions. This allowed for picking and taking vehicles, which now became impossible. A solution: Don't enforce vehicle permissions unless it has a lock, and dont enforce deed permissions unless it has a live templar. Can't remove locks Problem: If you are not the owner of something (chest, cart, boat, bsb, etc), you cannot remove the lock with the key anymore. The detail of an object having an imaginary owner preventing you from removing a lock with the key is immersion breaking, especially when you can already access it's contents by opening it while holding the key. You are also prevented from sailing any boat you find the key to, you may only access the hold. How it used to work: If you found the keys to something you could use them to remove the lock without needing to pick it. People often held onto high ql keys they found and over time would figure out what they went to. You could also board and sail ships as long as you held the key. A solution: Enable removing locks from objects by using the key on PvP servers Unable to take from bsbs in houses Problem: Bsbs/fsbs in houses often will not let you take from them (even without a lock), as when you try to drag their contents to your inventory it responds "You must use steal to do that.", but there is no way to use steal on the contents of a bsb. How it used to work: You would be able to take from bsbs inside houses A solution: Allow taking from bsbs inside houses, and if the house owner wants permission control or security over their bsb, they should attach a lock, rather than having 100% secure moonmetal/drake/etc storage by default/bug. Can't target same kingdom templars Problem: You can't target same kingdom templars in order to kill them and break laws. You first have to be KOS'ed somehow in order to autoretaliate to kill them, during which it won't let you change targets to a different templar, it only lets you kill the one that attacked you first, and then the next one to hit you after its dead you then autoretaliate to, etc. Not even the mayor can target his own deed's templars. How it used to work: You could go unlawful in order to target and kill same kingdom templars, in order to break same kingdom deed laws. A solution: You should be able to target same kingdom templars by going unlawful. Can't lockpick same kingdom doors Problem: You cannot lockpick doors of houses owned by a player in the same kingdom as you on elevation. How it used to work: You could lockpick any door or gate by going unlawful. A solution: Allow lockpicking same kingdom doors/gates by going unlawful. [Fixed on live] Can't kill mounts on same kingdom carts Problem: You cannot kill mounts hitched to carts owned by a player in the same kingdom as you How it used to work: You could attack any mob, regardless of if it was hitched or not A solution: Allow attacking mounts hitched to same kingdom players' carts. This is an anti-grief measure as the community will always work together against the griefers, while a griefer can't easily kill everyone else's hitched mounts on their own. Giving a lone griefer invulnerable hitched mounts so they can escape safely with loot they stole from you is a horrible idea. Non-tame/non-branded horses not moving after relogging Problem: When you crash or have to relog and you are on a non-tamed/non-branded mount while in combat you can't move unless you dismount the horse. How it used to work: Never happened prior to the perm system change. When relogging on a horse it worked as usual. A solution: Allow any ridden mount to move after relogging. This is most likely a bug with the permissions system seeing you don't personally "own" that mount. Can't drag locked boats Problem: You cannot drag locked boats, even if they aren't moored. How it used to work: You could drag same kingdom locked boats unless they were moored. A solution: If a boat isn't moored and doesn't have a captain, we should be able to drag it even if we can't captain it due to a lock. If you want to prevent a boat from being dragged, you should both lock it and moor it. Alliance/Citizen permissions on vehicles don't work off deed Problem: Added alliance Command, Passenger, Open, and Drag permissions to a sailboat. Nobody in my alliance was able to use it. Had to add them individually by name. The boat was off-deed at the time and later was able to allow Alliance/Citizens to board when the boat was on a deeded tile. How it used to work: Alliance/Citizen permissions applied to members of your alliance, allowing them to use your vehicles whether they were on deed at the time or not. A solution: Allow the Alliance/Citizen allow permissions to work off deed. We need to be able to board on our allies' boats for PvP without having to stop before a fight and manually add each individual person, wasting lots of time. Cannot load unowned planted objects Problem: Cannot load planted objects you do not own, even if you are enemy. How it used to work: You could take planted objects by loading them anytime if you were enemy, or when the laws allowed you/went unlawful as same kingdom. A solution: Allow loading of planted objects if enemy, or subject to the laws/lawfulness if same kingdom. Receive hunted status for attempting actions in lawful Problem: Now receive hunted status for attempting actions you aren't allowed to do, even though it prevents you from actually doing the action, and even though you are in lawful mode. How it used to work: If you were in lawful mode it would prevent you from doing things you weren't allowed to, and it would not penalize you since it prevented you from doing the action. A solution: Do not penalize/set players hunted for actions they attempt while in lawful mode. [Fixed on test] Can't catapult same kingdom deeds Problem: Cannot catapult same kingdom deeds unless you have explicit permission. Receive a "You seem to have missed..." message, and actually damaging anything is impossible. How it used to work: You could catapult same kingdom deeds and become KOS'ed on that deed, losing reputation for it if the templar was alive, and adding 10 to your deed's settlement reputation. A solution: Make it work like it used to. We can no longer deal with griefers if they have a deed. This update has made them as safe as if they were on freedom and removed an element of PvP from PvP servers. Alliance/Citizens of "" deed permissions don't work right on buildings Problem: If you have alliance/citizen permission to access a building, then log off until you leave the world and log back into that building, it ejects you from the building as if you don't have permission to it, and on a PvP server that means falling out of your longhouses, down off of your dirtwalls, to splat on the ground and die hundreds of slope below your deed. How it used to work: You were not ejected from buildings if you had permission on them. A solution: Do not eject players from buildings upon logging in if they have Alliance/Village enter permission. Old permissions issues (not from the new permission system) that don't belong on a PvP server: Can't sacrifice on enemy deeds (or friendly ones where you're KOS'ed) Problem: You cannot sacrifice anything (items or animals) on an enemy deed. There isn't really a reason we shouldn't be able to do this unless the templars are disallowing it. A solution: Allow sacrificing on enemy deeds as long as the templars are dead.

  10. "Teach a man to fish and he can feed himself for a lifetime. Yeah, well, try it! I am so sick of fish! Fish for breakfast. Fish for lunch. Fish for supper. Day after day, meal after meal, fish, fish, FISH! I am thinking of taking up mountain climbing just to get as far away from fish as humanly possible!” - Sir Witwicky on board ship in the middle of the ocean HI Everyone! Well, a big week with some big announcements, I've been keen to share them all with you, for a brief overview check out this link But first... Patch Notes An Epic plan Starting with the upcoming large update, we’ll be changing how transfers from Freedom to Epic work. Instead of how it works now with your Epic and Freedom characters being completely separated, when using an epic portal to transfer from Freedom to Epic your skills and characteristics will follow with you, overwriting anything on your Epic character where the values are lower. This will only be a one way type deal, so any transfers back from Epic to Freedom will act as they do now where you’ll be back on your Freedom character with their skills. For an example of how this works, if you have 60 carpentry on Freedom and 30 carpentry on Epic, the next time you transfer to Epic your carpentry will copy across and be set to 60. Any skilling up done on Epic will stay on Epic and when transferring back to Freedom you’ll be back to your 60 skill on Freedom. Transferring from Epic to Freedom is a little more difficult, and we'll continue to discuss our options with this prior to the launch. We are hoping this will make the option of playing on Epic much more viable for most people that spend the majority of their time on Freedom since the dreaded skill regrind will not be necessary. In addition to the above, we will be changing how skilling works on the Epic cluster in a few ways. First is switching the skillgain system over to the ‘new’ system that is mostly used by Wurm Unlimited servers where using your skill is all that is needed to gain in it instead of the current system that relies on timer length and successful skill rolls between 0 and 40. In addition to this, the experience rate on Epic will be set to 2x as well as the action timer rate being increased to 2x. This will make most actions take half the time and give twice the skill gain, making things a bit easier for new players to get into the game on Epic. The curve will still be in effect. With PvP being the endgame focus on epic, we want to ensure that getting to that stage is not too long for players starting out. Not only that, but hopefully these changes make regearing and preparing tools, weapons and other aspects of the PvP system a lot easier to recuperate after a loss. This coupled with the ability to drop in and out via epic portals straight to Freedom means it's a lot easier to get into the action faster, and hopefully encourages more activity. Meditation Meditation has long been an issue raised and we've already mentioned plans for an overhaul in the future works, but we'll be making some small changes to it in this update on epic as well. As has been stated in many areas, meditation on epic is somewhat different to how it works on Freedom. Given the curve hinders rather than helps in this case, (requiring 70 actual skill meaning 91 effective) it actually makes it harder to raise. In this update we'll be changing this from requiring actual skills to effective skills. This means high path levels in meditating are much faster to gain, with level 11 requiring roughly 47 meditation instead of 70, but that's not all. We'll also be halving the time it takes between each path up, meaning the maximum length of time between path increases is 12 days instead of 24. This of course is aimed at both new players and existing players crossing from freedom to get pvp ready and in on the action, and we'll continue to monitor it once implemented to see how it pans out. Sleep bonus We'll also be making changes to how transferring between clusters affects players, and that will be by granting sleep bonus to the opposing cluster (going from freedom to epic will give sleep bonus on freedom and vice versa) This is aimed at encouraging travel between the two clusters, and also gives a nice little bonus. As you can see these are major changes focused on improving flow and feasibility of getting into PvP on epic. Valrei Changes There are a fair few changes going on with the Valrei system on Epic and Freedom so we’ll just touch on a few of the main points for now and may expand upon these at a later date. First up, and one of the larger changes to how Valrei works, if that player gods will no longer roam the board on Valrei. Players that use the key to the heavens will still exist on the Valrei board while they are demigods, but once they fully ascend to godhood they will be removed from the board to live out their days as gods. Existing player gods will also be removed from the board when this update goes out, however they will still provide missions and all other benefits of being a god to players. Missions for player gods will act as other missions, but will not affect the Valrei board in any meaningful way - instead they will just provide bonuses and rewards to the players completing the missions as normal. We’ve also revisited all mission types, difficulties and rewards to hopefully be a bit better than currently. Each mission type will have its own related difficulty levels and rewards scaling with difficulty. More info will be available in game for these missions than currently available, showing what needs doing and what the player (and god) will receive when the mission is completed. Successfully completing a mission for a god will cause the next mission to spawn at a higher difficulty (and higher reward for completion), where failing a mission will cause the next mission to be at a lower difficulty. Related to this is a rework of how end of scenario rewards work, where the rewards have been split up into different tiers based on scenario participation by the player. More participation in missions across the scenario will mean a higher chance to get a reward at the end of the scenario, and also a higher chance to get a better reward than those with less participation. The god that wins a scenario will also have a reworked reward system over what it currently used. Lastly for today, we’ve changed how the entities on Valrei fight each other when they move. Currently the entities on Valrei have two stats for their attack and vitality - these stats are used in fights when one entity tries to leave a tile that contains an enemy. These stats will be completely changed and reset in this update to instead be related to the 7 characteristic skills that are in game - Body Strength, Body Stamina, Body Control, Mind Logic, Mind Speed, Soul Strength and Soul Depth. All of these stats will be used in a more complex fight system where the entities can move around a smaller game board with various actions available to them - such as ranged attacks, casting spells, and melee attacks. Once a fight occurs, a history of it is then saved on the server and will be available to players in game where you will be able to watch a replay of the battle and see exactly how your favourite god lost (or won!) Other Epic changes There are other planned changes for Epic as well, some of these will be Epic specific changes to PvP mechanics and other game mechanics aimed at eliminating some of the less desirable meta and also systems that haven't worked as intended over time. More info on those will be available later. Highway rules changes As we advised with the launch of the new highway system, we’ll be phasing out the existing highway rules in exchange for a new ruleset with the next update too. The focus will be on returning the majority of control of the highways to players, but still allowing for accountability and control by the GM team when necessary. This is subject to change prior to launch, so please do keep an eye on the GM rules in the city hall on our forums. Wurm Unlimited on Humble Bundle!

  12. 3 Accounts: 1. Crafter that has one of the highest WS skills, plus many key craft masters. 2. Fighter/Nahjo priest with 99.99 FS and 85 channel. SOLD 3. Vyn Priest with 93 channel and 99.99 HFC SOLD Send me a PM for details if you are serious. These accounts aren't cheap. I've decided to cut back to my own original main accounts and use these to raise funds for my new gaming laptop, so it's for a very good cause! I've been running Wurm in low detail for a while and I'd really like to have some smooth FPS and pretty scenery, while managing 4-6 accounts at once. Looking forward to sending them off to good homes where they can thrive as they should.

  17. Hi. I wrote this guide thinking that most people never get the chance to read something like this. Wurmpedia doesn't tell everything it should as you might already know. Most people on freedom do not know these things , and sometimes even people on chaos. Keep in mind that this is my own opinion, i'm by no means an all knowing wizard and there's far more experienced people at PVP than myself. Guide starts up at freedom level 1FS toon and gets more complex as pages go on. Note that you should have a basic understanding of the wurm mechanics to be able to follow it. Basicly i want you to know what "body strength" is or how to create basic tools and so on and so forth. Have fun. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vleppxC7I-qIZ3IXKBzRLoENsm9YT5cAf0JoAVsyu0I/edit?usp=sharing

  19. I am building a PvP server and have all the kingdoms (except Freedom) on the server, but when I go to do a test, a "none" kingdom shows up as an option and spawns ppl as Freedom. How do I get rid of the "none" kingdom option on spawn in? I just want MR, JK, and Hots on the server. I have home server off, with the kingdom set at 3 (It was at 0, then 4, but still "none" showed up). I am using the creative DB. PvP is on. I am not sure what is making the "none" option show up Here is an image of what I am talking about

  21. Going back quite a few years there was a period when kingdoms could ally. Restore the ability for kings to forge alliances with other kings. Allying(or vasaling) with a Default kingdom should give you access to use their home server. In the event of a breaking of alliance, the deed holder can convert immediately or disband for a full refund. (I recommend 1-2 week cool down between creation and breaking of alliances). (Fleeting thought) Land held by a kingdom should have some effect on alliance to "limit" big kingdoms allying everyone. Instead they can vassalise. Why it was removed It was originally a BL and MR alliance, I know this because I negotiated the alliance. It was the found to be to strong due to 2 factors. 1. Bl and Wl priests working together. This is no longer an issue as all spells are spread out via player made god's. 2. There was only 3 kingdoms, even though at the time JK where beyond on top with their set up. The alliance immediately turned the fight around due to sheer volume of player and as such they had no one else to ally. PMK changed this by allowing potentially near limitless number of kingdoms. Other good reasons why: -Reinventing diplomacy in wurm, add in a mechanic to allow players to straight up band together against stronger or weaker foes. We have all had and heard of kingdoms working together or calling in a back door etc. This can offer a diverse and shifting landscape of alliances. -insentive to make a pmk as you are not alone, you can forge alliances (added bonus of the money sink/gold purchase increases). The biggest weaknesses to a pmk is you have no home server, you are alone and can be destroy. This offers more opportunities to survive. -wider use of the PvP maps via creation of new PMKs. -A better community. With alliance in place strong friends can form, diplomatic relations become something to consider. The effect of action may be more than words but the end of your kingdom. Discuss and scrutinize.
  22. This post is in regards to : Spying and infiltration is and has always been a huge part of any warfare. The more rules you place for gm's to manage the less of a sandbox and more of a document people need to read before they can even play the game. You have all the deed permission and can allow the players to govern themselves. Loyalty is built through trust and cooperation not GM rules! This is all part of the grander problem with pvp. There is nothing to fight for, no value or achievement to gain. At least back when permachamps where a thing the wl and bl held value. Now they serve as nothing more than a point of reference in travel, or top up points. Giving faith, some Dr or recharge the little used and over valued artifacts. You need to stop making PvP a hand holding contest, repair the economy of wurm. Especially in PvP in relation to deeds and kingdoms. Beyond that you require a huge overhaul of objective based war. With meaningful gains beyond a few numbers (land,rank) and a few lumps of metal that had once been rare. Beyond this everyone is see a thread of PvP ban, warning. The GM team are quickly becoming more prominent and invasive on PvP servers, often. Making quick irrational calls with little thought or regards to the long term effects it will have. I myself and many people I have played with directly refuse to build a pmk due to how a situation had been handled. When you(Enki) yourself took a banned item(crown) and handed it to a player with no deed, no title or any really claim to have out any long term monitery value in to the kingdom. This is a perfect example of how harsh and incomprehensive decisions can allenate players, many of them have not and will not return from this single event alone. I myself had been burnt out and hardly played wurm online, everyone I look to return I see another failing moment of judgement with the community of the remains players out crying against the decision. This can only be reflected in the slowly reducing premium membership. I have a special place for wurm and really hope it succeeds in the ever growing and competitive market it is in but things need to change and more rules enforced by GM rulling, taking up valuable time that the few good ones have to deal with these senarios such as infiltration that already have game mechanics to prevent. Stop going beyond the required intervention unless absolutely necessary and if you do, make sure all players are equally compensated. Update: General agreements/over arching and repeated comments.
  23. A little over a year ago I bought Wurm and joined some friends on a server called Redneck Solutions, we had fun in the beginning learning the game, crafting, competition and comraderie all in one, I looked forward to playing. Then it turned kinddah ugly, you find out on private servers thaty the people who have the server have clicks and they can pretty much do whatever they want, like spawning 15 Nogumps and a gazillion trolls around your property because they want your group to go away...so we did..(And we all did the happy dance when they imploded and disappearred) to move on......So then you get your own server and it is a headache, especially PVE and dealing with new folks and keeping everything friendly.....in lies an oxymoron....friendly game.......well I come and go at this quite steady, really feeling underappreciated for dealing with new people and it is a struggle to have an independent open to the public server and cover all bases. Finally this chapter closes, alittle under duress and some friendships may never be the same. part of the group stayed with Redneck, but the majority left, some went on to the new map in the PVE after a bigh ole fat wipe, and some moved on.....So now we try server hopping, man there are alot out there that have good and bad points, same with some of the people. Tamureil, Mythmoor, Skotopolis, Highborne, and a few other I am sure I lost count...Its almost like feast or famine with this game. Finally settle into Fields of Conquest PVP, play for a while meet some folks, but never a steady stream, never the same....always feel like your just playing to beat boredom......so maybe to go try something new....Well if you are a noob, do not go to a very active PVP server, more lessons learned over the next couple of days.....then I think did I really buy into this to be this frustrated.....I mean the level of tedium in the game is fierce even on the modded servers, and thats another thing, this server has this mod and that one has this and generally there is no where to find out and the maps are all different does anyone have a link?, It is completely maddening and its not fun anymore....well I guess some people were right PVE is to quiet and PVP if its an active server might not be your cup of tea, for there are surely days when you feel like you have been jumped by the mob. All in all it was great and it was depressing at times...I just can not find a happy medium I guess....any suggestions? there are aspects of the game I like but there are some that are not so nice....
  24. Hello! Have settings: Freedom, PVP On. If someone try to do illigal action (with enabled Lawful) -- Instead of a message "It would be illigal here" -- player get status "Hunted" and some error in server log: Tested on server with mods and clean server.
  25. For a long time myself and many others on the wild/chaos server have suffered with a lot of misinformation, assumptions and general misunderstandings about our fair server. So i've decided to put this little FAQ thread together in the hopes of improving numbers on the server by generating some interest in the different features and exciting prospects the pvp server on the freedom cluster can offer. I'll try my best to cover the basics in the OP and i'm sure there will be plenty of people to point out whatever i have missed and i'll be happy to answer any questions put forward. What is different about Chaos compared to the rest of the Freedom Cluster? Simply put, Chaos is a pvp server, allowing combat between players. But it features many other differences that i will go into detail about later. What we have that other servers do not is : Player vs Player Combat Deed raiding Valrei Creatures Player Made Kingdoms Special kingdom titles and offices. Horde of the Summoned kingdom and the dark goddess Libila Territory control using guard towers Battle rank and the titles that can be gained from it. The ability to kill others for their affinities, up to 5 in each skill can be earned. The Hunt of the Ancients tournament Powerful Artifacts of the Gods The Altar of Three (White Light) and Bone Altar (Black Light) Players can become Champions of the Gods What do you mean by rumours and misinformation about Chaos? I'll paste in what my good friend Reasons once said on our private forum, he summed this up very well. If you're curious about the PVP server that many have heard (mostly bad) rumours about, it's not all true: · You DON'T need to have 70+ Fight Skill to live here · It's NOT all out war here · It IS safe to leave the deed area solo, there aren't uber high level players hiding in the trees waiting to kill you · You DON'T have to be interested in the PVP game to enjoy the Chaos server · It IS fun to play here without the restrictions many complain about on the PVE servers How does PvP work? Pvp in wurm is surprisingly complex and i won't take the time to try and describe it all here, i highly reccomend giving Postes introduction to wurm pvp a read though - http://forum.wurmonline.com/index.php?/topic/73186-an-introduction-to-wurm-onlines-pvp-pdf-format-version-i0/ The basic idea is that you can fight and kill anyone you choose to on Chaos. The only limiting factor in this is that killing members of your own kingdom will cause you to lose reputation and eventually turn outlaw. Becoming an outlaw makes you possible to be killed by other members of your kingdom causing you to lose 5x the normal skill penalties. This rule does not apply to Horde of the Summoned. Reputation also affects deed raiding and because of this as a general rule you are pretty safe among members of your own kingdom. What happens when a player dies in pvp? If you die in pvp you will lose an affinity, assuming you have one and are over 20 fighting skill, to your killer and your items will be on your corpse. Your name will also appear in "Deaths tab" e.g. - Player1 slain by Player2. If you have allies near to your corpse then the enemy will not be able to loot it until your allies have either died or moved 15 tiles away from it. This removes the old "grab corpses as fast as you can" issue that used to exist on wild and now requires one side to win the battle in order to collect the spoils. Unlike with normal deaths in wurm, you would not lose skill in 5 random skills, pvp deaths only cause the loss of 0.25 overall fighting skill. There is code in place that prevents players from gaining fighting skill, affinities or rank from kills on players with less than 20 fighting skill. This is, in theory, a measure to make killing newer players not worth the effort. What's an affinity? Every player has one affinity, though if you lose yours it can take 2 weeks to spawn a new one, in a random skill. One affinity is worth a 10% boost to skillgain in that skill (this excludes overall fighting skill). It is possible to gain affinities by killing enemy kingdom players with over 20fighting skill and it is possible to have up to 5 affinities in each skill. Many skilled pvpers will have a large number of affinities boosting their skillgains. Where will i start and what kingdom will i be? A newly created player on the server will spawn at Hunter's Lodge as a member of the freedom kingdom. This is roughly in the centre of the server right next to the Hunt of the Ancients area. Upon death you will also find yourself able to respawn at Gold Coast on the west coast of the server or The Landing on the North East coast. These are the former starting deeds of the original White Light kingdoms on Wild, Jenn Kellon and Mol Rehan. Due to this fact you will find that these deeds have only a small area that is safe for Freedom Kingdom members as they are surrounded by MR/JK territories. If you are coming from another freedom server to Chaos then you can sail over the west border of your server (excludes celebration) arriving on the east border of Chaos as freedom kingdom. As a new player, won't i get relentlessly killed by older players right away!? This is honestly rather unlikely to happen, most players on chaos leave freedom kingdom members alone, particularly at the starter villages. It's generally considered bad form to harass newbies as we all know we need more blood on the server. I can't say it won't ever happen but it's not too likely and any strong fighter isn't likely to have much of a need to loot your items. Loot my items? Is there any way to keep things safe on Chaos? I don't want to lose everything! It's true that any items you own can be looted upon your death or taken from your home during a raid, that risk always exists. There are numerous methods used to protect ones most prized possessions and never forget, persist and become strong and you too can enjoy the spoils of war! For example, stone or metal mine doors are very strong and hard to bash on deed, keeping items within your deed inside a mine and within locked chests can render them very difficult to get to. Other options exist such as keeping items on another account (aka Storage Alt) or on a merchant in your deed with high prices set. Always remember that most players out there are not looking to grief and destroy your home unless you've given them a reason to dislike you. Your best bet is always to join an established village/kingdom that can offer you some security before you try venturing out on your own. There are numerous deeds on the server that have not been broken into for months or years. For 5 silver from a trader you can purchase a resurrection stone to give you a chance of keeping your items on death. Magranon priests of over 70 faith get a passive ability similar to a resurrection stone. What happens to a deed that is raided? In any deed raid there are two main objectives for the attacking side. The first is the token, which can be drained for upkeep in an attempt to simply make money out of the deed or to try and force it to disband. For this reason most deeds on Chaos will have strong defences and buildings around the token. The drain amount is always 15% of the monthly upkeep amount removed, half of this goes to the player who drains and the other half will go into the kingdom coffers (trader economy). Once drained a deed cannot be drained again for another 24 hours, if it does get drained within 48 hours of the last time it was drained then the drain amount will increase by 50% (up to a maximum of 6 drains in a row, at which point the amount will not increase). The second is to loot whatever valuables you can, this happens generally when a raid force is overwhelmingly powerful or the defenders simply are not present. Giving the attacking side ample time to catapult into each house and try to lockpick chests. Generally speaking any defended deed will present too much risk to attempt this due to the time and effort it takes to catapult into a deeds numerous houses that someone is repairing and fighting for. What is raiding actually like? There are some key points to keep in mind about raiding, i'll try to outline the essential points. Wooden houses are hilariously weak, using a carving knife any raider can make short work of wooden house walls. Use stone whenever possible!Tall walls are weaker than house walls, most deeds are protected by rings of "longhouses"Catapults destroy everything on the tile they hit, for this reason 1 tile wide houses tend to be inadvisabble due to catapults being able to damage more walls at once.Defenders should keep stocks of bricks for repairing their defensive houses as catapult fire comes in. But be careful! Those Cata shots will hurt if they hit you standing on the tile Guards are a good deterrent but never rely on them to always keep enemies out, the nature of them being AI controlled means they can be herded and wittled down slowly even in vast numbers. This of course will slow down your enemies and make their raid take far longer. But it will not prevent the raid if they really want in and you're not there to defend your home.Guard towers play an important role in adding more guards to your area, that additional assistance could be what you need to kill an attacker!Catapults are draggable, fire 1 tile per winch (changes somewhat with land elevation) and fire a maximum shot of 80kg. The usual ammo is 80kg packs of ore. Rock shards are inadvisable as enemies will use them for making bricks to repair with. Some wall types will take less heavy ammo to shoot, such as low stone walls, trial and error will teach you which to use your heaviest ammo on.Damage is affected by catapult QL slightly (this QL affects accuracy more), player skill and ammo QL. Remember that a catapult will never do more than 20 damage per shot to any given target (this does not apply to shooting players )Mine doors are your friend, gatehouses will unlock with enemies in local when built off deed. Mine doors will not and will provide you with ammunition and a place to back up to.Dirtwalls! Nothing says "this isn't worth your effort" to a raider like a giant wall they have to get through. The use of the level option for diggers has made walls of dirt far easier to create. See the wiki for instructions on how to flatraise a section up to start levelling from. http://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Flatraising.Never forget that the biggest deterrent to a raid force is a player seeing them and informing their allies. Most raiders will attack in the hope that they will not be caught in the act. What are these Valrei creatures? Valrei creatures started out as an epic cluster only feature and have recently been allowed on Chaos as well. Whenever a mission is completed there is a 5% chance that the god the mission was completed for will take control of one of these creature types. For example Libila curretly controls the Sons of Nogump and as such, members of the Horde of the Summoned will find these creatures to be friendly and neutral, others will see them as aggressive. These creatures spawn periodically, with event messages such as "Libila sends forth the Sons of Nogump" At which point the creature stated will spawn in random locations around the server with a mighty crack of lighting. It can be quite an impressive sight to see 10 sol demons ride lighting down and appear near you. Some, such as Deathcrawler Minions, Spawn of Uttacha and Sol Demons are reasonable strength and not too much of a challenge. Others like Eagle Spirits, Sons of Nogump and Drake Spirits are impressive powerful foes that should not be fought alone. When killed these creatures can be butchered to produce valrei items which you can sacrifice to give your deed 0.2% increase in enchanting bonus. Using this method it is very possible for villages to maintain the 10% maximum enchanting bonus. Just be careful fighting them, it hurts! Player made Kingdoms, how do i make one and why should i? On chaos it is possible to found and rule over your own kingdom rather than just staying freedom or joining the horde. You can do so by buying a Declaration of Independence from any trader. This is a special item and it costs 1gold (100 silver) coin to purchase. To use it you must be standing inside of a deed that you are the mayor of, with at least 15 other premium players nearby. You will be able to choose a name for your kingdom and decide if you wish it to be based off of Mol Rehan or Jenn Kellon template. these templates affect the model of your guard towers, the titles your kingdom offices have, your kingdom animal and which gods will allow your people to become champions of their religion. NEW - As of March 2014 you can now make Blacklight PMKs as well. You can find a list of the titles here - http://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Titles - Note that all PMK leaders have the title [Chief] Not Chancellor or Grand Prince sadly. Mol Rehan template kingdoms become followers of Magranon, allowing them to create champions of Magranon. Within their territory will spawn friendly Mountain Gorillas. Jenn Kellon follow Fo and Vynora, with the Wild Boar and (rarely) Anacondas. These dictate which missions your kingdom should complete as well. As a chief of a kingdom you will have the power to select a capital city, a deed which will recieve half the normal upkeep costs, a trader contract will appear in your inventory along with three special royal items. These are the Crown, Robe/Cape (chest armour) and sceptre/staff. The Crown and Robe/Cape are both non-drop, dragon scale strength, undamagable armours that come with an inbuilt 100 power Web Armour cast. They spawn between 70-99QL and additionally the crown can be used to check kingdoms/kingdom history and the robe/cape functions as an infinite supply of cotton for healing. As if this isn't enough, Chiefs recieve a huge combat rating boost of +3, similar to having an additional 15 overall fighting skill. PMKs can change their leader by simply trading the crown to the desired player and having that player put it on. The other items will then transfer over. The staff allows you to select your kingdom officers (listed in the wiki titles link above) and to hand out decorative titles and orders to your people. These officer titles will only function once your kingdom has at least 2% control of territory on the server. Any mayor of any village can be converted by a PMK and this will cause their deed and all its members to convert to your kingdom. As default your kingdom will be at war with all others, but you will have the option to extend an offer of an alliance to any other kingdom that is not a follower of Libila. Your kingdom will only ever disband if all of the deeds within it are disbanded or if you have less than 15 premium players (this causes a 24 hour timer to begin which will warn you that your kingdom needs more premium players). I hear that PMKs can have their own banners and tabards. This is true and we thank the art devs for making it so. You can design and banner, flag and tabard and submit it to an art developer such as Wox or Saroman to be implemented into the game. The templates for these can be found inside your wurm graphics packs. Whats so special about the Horde of the Summoned? The Horde (often reffered to as Blacklighters or HotS) are followers of Libila, a powerful dark goddess that cannot be followed on other freedom servers. You can join them by visiting the Bone Altar or by being invited by an existing member. All members of HotS gain the benefits of Mycelium, a fungus that grows over their lands infecting the trees and grass. Mycelium can be used to heal small wounds and when stood on will slowly increase food and nutrition. The downside is that Mycelium cannot be grazed on and animals such as cows do not spawn on it. These can of course be found elsewhere on the server however. Mycelium is also the terrain type required to follow the path of hate for meditation. With bonuses such as doube structure damage, double attack damage, fear effect that causes even deed guards to become neutral to you and immunity to directly casted spells. All members of HotS are followers of Libila and gain these benefits along with the ability to butcher human bodies for meat and access her special spell list as a priest - http://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Libila The Horde is a template kingdom, which means that it can never disband and it's leader is chosen by the King Cobra. This is a random number generator test which can be attempted once per 2 weeks (or server restart). Your combat rating affects the chance, so players with decent fighting skill will be more likely to succeed. There has been recent talk from Rolf suggesting that he will soon be allowing Player Made Kingdoms that follow Libila as well. What if i want to go back to freedom, do i lose my faith? Unfortunately it is currently coded into the game that any player who is a follower of libila/member of HotS will lose their faith if they leave the server to go to freedom. How does territory control work? On Chaos, guard towers have the additional use of creating 60 tiles of territory for your kingdom. The amount of control you have can be checked with /kingdoms. You cannot plant a deed outside of your territory. It is not possible to build a tower within 150 tiles of any enemy kingdom influence, you would have to capture or destroy the enemy tower or deed that is blocking you. Capturing towers is a dangerous 10 minute timer that causes the tower to spawn waves of guards that vary in strength. Unlike normal tower guards these do not target horses however and can be outrun on horseback if things get too dicey. Towers cannot be captured within 100 tiles of a deed, the only option for these towers is to remove the deed or bash the tower down using large mauls. This can take a long time without a large group of allies to help you. The advantage is that unlike tower capturing it does not announce to the entire server that it is happening. Only the enemy kingdoms Defence Advisor/Earl Marshall/Chief of the Cabal can spot what you're up to. This means that Chaos has far more guard towers than the freedom servers as they are a necessity for our kingdoms to flourish. What is battle rank? Some of you may have noticed the /rank or /ranks commands that show your rank and the highest ranked players on your server. All players havea default amount of 1000. Rank can be gained in a number of ways, by killing enemy players (more is gained from higher ranked players dying), by being involved in a tower capture, by capturing a battle camp or by capturing a pillar in the Hunt of the Ancients. Gaining battle rank is mostly for the sake of being able to say that you have more than other people, but it does also offer special titles. 1100 = [Warrior] or [Warmaid] . 1500 = [battlemaster] or [battlemaiden] and finally 1900 = [Warlord] (it is unknown what the female 1900 rank title is) Battle rank will decay slowly back down to 1000 if not increased for over a week. Not sure of the specifics on this, perhaps someone can help me out there. What is the Hunt of the Ancients? The HotA is a tournament that happens once every 36 hours in a location near the centre of the server, this area is 400x400 in size and gives a clear event message when entered. Deeds cannot be planted here, towers cannot be built and mine doors cannot be placed. Any buildings placed can be knocked down almost always with a single bash of a maul. It is meant to be a full pvp zone that cannot be controlled. When the hunt begins a number of "pillars" will spawn, these pillars glow in various colours and must be conquered. Every time a pillar is conquered 1-3 more will spawn around the HotA area. The first alliance or deed to capture 4 of the total 10 pillars will win. It is possible to recapture a pillar that has been captured by another deed/alliance. This means that even players of the same kingdom can compete against each other for the HotA. The winning side will find a HotA statue will spawn at the token of the capital deed of their alliance (or simply at their deed) and will contain 2kg each of Adamantine and Glimmersteel. These lumps start at 50QL and each time the HotA is won the QL will increase by 1. Once a deed/alliance has won 49 times they will always recieve 99QL lumps. The statues are 150kg, glowing representations of creatures in various poses and are very popular decorative items which also function as containers. They should never be held in inventory for any period of time more than a few seconds as they decay every 20 seconds that they spend in inventory by 1QL. Use Large carts to transport and place them. Once planted (not just dropped) it is impossible for anyone to steal them, even an enemy raid force. Glimmersteel can be used to create weapons that swing faster than normal and chain or plate armour that is roughly 30% stronger than iron/steel counterparts. All items made from Glimmersteel damage at a slower rate than iron, roughly 3x less. Helmets and weapons made from it will glow faintly yellow. Adamantine can be used to create weapons that do more damage than normal iron or steel ones and has the same properties as glimmersteel for making armour. Some claim that glimmersteel armour is stronger however. Helmets and weapons made from Adamantine glow faintly blue. What are the artifacts and what do they do? There are 3 artifacts of each god, totalling 12 that exist in the server. When the arrive to the server they are buried underground and must be found using the locate artifact spell, then dug up. Currently all 12 are unburied and controlled. The artifacts all have about 3 months worth of charge in them and must be recharged at the corresponding great altar at specific recharge times. The recharges take a number of minutes per artifact and announce to the entire server in event and with a drastic change in the sky, either turning dark or bright depending on the light being used. This puts the owners of the artifacts at great risk each time they must recharge their artifacts. If an artifact runs out of charge then it will return to being buried somewhere in the server. Using their special powers will also drain a small amount of power each use. The recharge times are always on the 1st and 3rd week of each starfall, during either Wrath or Awakening day. Meaning each recharge chance is 3 hours long. The artifacts and their powers can be found here - http://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Category:Artifact What are the great altars? Chaos is home to the Bone Altar of Libila (the black light) and the Altar of Three of Fo, Magranon and Vynora (the white light). These are visible from almost anywhere on the server as a mighty beam of light from the earth to the heavens. The altars themselves can be used as a normal 90QL altar (The WL gives fo influence but works for all three) and as a place to become a priest or champion. They are also used to recharge the corresponding gods artifacts. It is impossible to make buildings, mine doors or deeds within 100 tiles of the great altars. During the recharge days on the 1st and 3rd week of each starfall, Wrath or Awakening day. The lights are vulnerable to attack by the break altar spell and players mauls. When destroyed three key things will happen, starting with the spawning of the mighty Avenger of the Light unique creature. The altar will then disappear and reappear at a different location on the server and cause a medium internal head wound to followers of its god/s and will choose a random artifact to rebury. What is a champion? In the past champions were numerous and had a very different system to the way they work now, so old players may find this information surprising if they have not pvp'd in a long time. Becoming a champion has a number of bonuses and downsides, which are covered quite well by the wiki article located here - http://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Champion_player Remember that kingdoms based on Mol Rehan can only make Magranon champions, while Jenn Kellon based ones can make Fo and Vynora only. HotS ofc is the only kingdom able to have Libila champions. What are Farwalker Amulets? Farwalker Amulets are items that were given out as a christmas gift some years ago that have caused controversy over their power to give a player the "unstoppable" double movement speed and no fall damage effect for 30 seconds. It costs 1QL of the amulet meaning each one when spawned was worth 99 uses. Many players, including myself, would like to see Rolf make them un-usable in enemy local to prevent their use in escaping death in pvp as only a certain number of players posess them and they are non-drop items. How do griefing rules differ from freedom? A key difference between Chaos and the rest of the servers are the griefing rules. The only griefing on Chaos is of a personal abuse nature, be that though chat, leaving signs directly insulting someone etc. Anything else like terraforming, property destruction etc is fair game. However, that also means you can retaliate. None of the having to worry about highway and enclosure rules. If you can see it, you can destroy it [skills allowing]! This is a refreshing idea to those people who just want to deal with a situation themselves without having to bother a GM. If your part of a community on Chaos, you're also less likely to be 'griefed' (I'm not counting standard raiding as griefing) due to the likely hood of that person being hunted down by your group. Does Chaos have a different economy and community from the rest of Freedom? There is a market and trade but its much less compared to the rest of Freedom. There is a lot of collaboration and sharing and activities done "for the kingdom". The team is not within a village but across the whole kingdom and once someone is established then they share in the group effort and resources. As an example, its in the kingdoms interest to have a player geared up for PvP. Ok they may die a few times but those that learn and participate are given good armour and weapons, horses and enchants. The more a player gives to the kingdom, the more it gives back. If you want to be a rich crafter then Chaos may not be the place for you, it is not impossible but it isn't as easy to do as in the rest of the Freedom cluster. How does Chaos differ from Epic? The Epic servers are a separate cluster of servers that are all at least in some form pvp based. They have a seperate skill tree and as such joining the freedom of the epic servers is a big choice and commitment to building a character on either cluster. generally speaking it is rare for players to choose to build characters on both. Faster skillgain on Epic allows you to get into pvp sooner, the tradeoff is a far greater sense of achievement for ones skillgrind on chaos. However this does often cause people to fear starting on the server against older accounts.Older server and playerbase, Epic has been around a far shorter timespan giving Chaos a far richer history but also a larger skillgap between newer and older players.Server size: all 4 of the Epic servers are 1/4 the size of Chaos. The server is massive, identical in size to only the Independence server.Focused on one server: On freedom cluster there are 4 linked servers to Chaos that have no pvp, allowing complete safety to train your skills up before trying out pvp with your account. Epic has 3 home servers that are "less" pvp but there is no server where you are 100% safe as you are on freedom. These home servers do not apply to PMKs on epic, members of PMKs live only on the main elevation pvp server.Epic has the full scenario system based around completing missions, Chaos has the missions only.Epic has a skillgain curve, meaning that many skills are "effectively" higher than they appear in the skill window. This includes skills like channelingFor the above reason channeling on epic cannot be trained using vesseling on gems, this is the fastest and most preffered method on the freedom cluster.For reasons known only to Rolf, body stamina gains far slower on the epic cluster. ----------------------------------- Thats the most my mind can think of at one time, i'm sure there will be more questions or edits needed and i'll be happy to answer them, add them to this OP and edit any mistakes. I'll also try to sort out a more up to date and useful map of Chaos to help newer players as the one on the wiki is in need of some love.
