(New Wonders)

Recommended Posts

New Wonders

New Wonders is a different type of Wurm Unlimited server. We are not happy with adding a few ease of game play items and letting it be.
We thrive to give you a new gaming experience by providing unique creatures, challenges,and an End-Game. New Wonders is a fresh server with most of the community of World of Wonders coming over the server is already highly active. We slowed down the speed of gains on this server compared to previous server as well as making tweaks to rewards gained in our dungeons. To allow crafters to benefit more and keep a market going most dungeon items will now be unique crafting material needed to make end game type items, instead of giving the item out right. We have learned a lot from our first run and are determined to make this the best WU server for content and adventure. 
    
I have played WO and WU for years and eventually each server I slowly got bored and took long breaks. Once you build your castle or town what more is there?
Normally the game provides a few unique fights every few weeks to keep you going for a while so you can get your end-game armor. Once you have it then what?

 


Following in the footsteps of other mainstream games we provide random drop loot on a good variation of drop rates for different items including unique dungeon only drops.
To provide more incentive and to make sure everyone is rewarded fairly a dungeon currency system was added so you will get rewarded by random rolls for loot drops or through currency purchases.

On top of the dungeons we provide new more challenging world mobs as well as raid bosses.
Currently hosting approximately 100 new mob types including approximately 10 boss type monsters. These will be reimplemented with more variety as the community grows.


Four new armor sets added including two that can only be found here. 
New weapons added and all armor and weapons balanced to give a larger variety of useful items.
Wurm has always provided a ton of sandbox play but with these additions we have added hours of replay value to the game.
 


New Wonders 4k x 4k Map, PvE

1.5x Skill Gain 
4x Actions (all actions corrected to be affected by multiplier)

50k creatures currently with 50% passive. Wild Worgs is our only custom mount found in the wild. As the server matures others will start spawning again. Maybe you will get lucky and find a Magic Carpet.

Efficiency=New Spell, Reduces difficulty of skill checks when using the enchanted item-Vyn Only
New Spell: Efficiency 
Efficiency is an enchant applicable to any enchantable item, including tools, weapons, etc.
Efficiency reduces difficulty of skill checks when using that item. This applies to a great deal of actions, including getting higher average ores with a pickaxe, blocking more often with a shield, and creation chance when making items with an anvil.
Unlocks this spell at 50 faith. It requires 50 favor to cast and has a difficulty of 60. It has no cooldown.
Efficiency has negating interaction with Blessings of the Dark and Circle of Cunning. If either of those enchants exist, you cannot cast Efficiency, and vice-versa. It does stack with Wind of Ages, Nimbleness,

Ring Enchants

Industry=New Spell, Ring enchant that reduces difficulty checks-Vyn Only
Endurance=New Spell, Ring enchant that reduces stamina usage-Mag Only
Acuity=New Spell, Ring enchant that reduces favor usage-Vyn Only
If you are wearing two rings with the same enchant, they will not stack. Instead, it will use the higher value.
The ring enchants are extremley hard to cast. They should be considered a luxury item, not a necessity.
They have a baseline 80 difficulty, and the cast is further reduced based on the quality of the target item.
If the ring is low quality, the power will almost always be low as well.

Faith Change
Cooldown removed from changing faith at altars.

Enchants that can possibly drop on dungeon items
Prowess=New Spell, Ring enchant that increase combat rating-No God can cast
Titanforged=New Spell, Increases speed, efficiency, and skill gain-No God can cast(Stacks with other enchants like WoA/BotD/Nimbleness)

Prepping for our first server event! 

Jun 12, 2017 at 10:00pm
 
A large caravan from a far away land has heard of the newly established village of Life Spring. They have sent an envoy ahead of there arrival to let us know they are coming with food and supplies for all. They have invited everyone to meet them at the East entrance of Life Spring for a grand festival on Saturday 17th of June around 4:00PM EST.
 
Jun 14, 2017 at 11:03pm
The magical envoy seems very nervous. He has not had any communication with the Caravan since he has arrived in Life Spring. Hopefully the caravan is ok....
 
Come join us to welcome the caravan, meet the community, and have some fun!

People this is a great server to play on. The guy who runs it is very tuned into what players want in a democratic fashion. Lots of mods that make player's experience as positive as possible while not giving out an instant win button. A huge map with lots of varied terrain and endless space. Fun things to find while exploring like abandoned buildings with treasure and magic boxes with goodies. Making money is easy with the bounty system and the creature count. If killing stuff isn't your thing you can make public roads and guard towers to make silvers. Since it's a huge server, 8k x 8k, transport speed has been increased so it's easy to get from place to place and the portals help too.

 

There was an event this last weekend that was a ton of fun. Pure chaos and pandemonium with nice prizes at the end. GMs will have events and help players set up events too.

 

If you want to be part of making a fun server even more fun then come and check it out. The more people we have the more fun it will be.

The traveling merchant is a GM controlled trader that we set up and move each week with updated loot. We also keep him with a higher coin balance then all the other traders on the server so you can actually sell a decent amount to him. Not a modification just using in-game controls in a different way then normal.
