Surprise! The Holiday Event will start today!

All event mobs spawn in the snowy lands of Talazar's Revenge - remember this is a high level, difficult encounter. Some of the creatures have a chance to drop gifts which can be opened for various prizes. These are only available during this event and can be opened 1 time.

If you collect any coal, visit Blizzard Stonebiter in Meroven to trade it in for holiday items such as the Ring of Sleighing, Santa's Big Sack, Elven Tools, or a Santa Hat.

Patch Notes 12.18.2021

The mage update!

Included in today’s patch is an updated spell book with more information about each spell including a description and targeting options. All spells were reviewed for progression/balance/utility. Please see notes below for details.

After you’re done exploring changes to spells, get ready to head to the frozen lands in the Talazar’s Revenge expansion for a holiday event! The Christmas Grinch has turned hard working Snow Elves and Reindeer into evil, lazy creatures – but not all is lost! You can hunt them for gifts, or try to melt the Grinch’s frozen heart and gain his treasure! Beware his helpers...

Note: The Holiday Event is a high level event. Angry Snowmen are still a low/mid level mob, but they do not drop special holiday prizes. It will be open Dec 20th through Jan 1st.

- Fix for disconnecting during character load if you happen to be logging in at the same time as a guildmate.

- Anarchy: Can no longer be cast in safe zone, is an offensive spell.
- Mystic Ward: Fix so that you do not have to cast Nullify 4x to remove it completely (it has 4 different effects).
- Disruption: Now has a small chance to silence enemy player; reduces attack/defense rating on player and NPCs (will be hooking this spell up to have a chance to silence certain NPCs which spellcast).

- Fix for spawned followers of creatures (they should no longer stack on top of their leader when they spawn).

- Fix for Hammerfist Mine stage of Artraxis quest. If you had previously found the key in years past, which could be done simply by killing orcs, then started the quest, you were not able to progress past stage 5 “Search for the half horn from the Helm of Artraxis, lost inside the Hammerfist Mines.” To progress kill Orc Miners outside the Hammerfist Mine entrance.
- Update to Mataarzal/GDI cave access quest. Previously required stage 4 ? complete to access the cave on Greater Dragon Island. Could be lost be repeating the quest to gain another ring.

October 30 2021
 From: Dev FujiQ

Be advised, the Greater Dragon cave entrance is now functioning, so unless you have quest update you will not be able to enter it. It is a repeatable quest, if you have chosen to repeat it to get another ring you have to get the update again to gain access. I will not be able to correct that until a future patch. Thank you.


October 27 2021

Live fix of H and L for some remaining loading/disconnecting issues. This would impact players in a guild, primarily, who were having issues switching characters. Please let us know if you are still having issues disconnecting. Thank you.

We have to wall of the PH, SI, LI altars are those login messages are preventing users from loading into the game. We will have this resolved tonight but in the mean time, no PH. Thank you for your understanding.


September 21 2021
 From: Dev FujiQ

Please patch the new client which should fix issue logging in during server events. Thank you.


September 20 2021
 From: Dev FujiQ

Hello everyone, thanks for hanging in there! This patch hit a little hard due to the change in loading sequence. We will keep working through those issues so if you are having loading/crashing issues do not stop bothering us until your issue is fixed.

Zarq is going to be looking into loading your explored maps (the Fog of War layer). I do not have an ETA for this.

On another note, I would like to clarify what Kraken posted about on Saturday - the issue of bot farming, particularly end game content. Here are some guidelines to help you figure out if what you are doing is ok, or not. If you have any questions please ask/page. We will do our best to help you figure it out. Please do not turn this into an opportunity to get into a lawyering contest with us or your rival guild/player/guy you just don't really like and you don't know exactly why. Thank you.

There are four things we will consider when receiving a page:
- Is the player using more than 2 accounts?
- Is the player AFK, unattended or not responsive?
- Is this end game content? (over level 105)
- Is what they are doing preventing others from reasonably accessing content (regardless of level)?

If what you are doing is hitting 2 or more of those 4 things, expect to get a warning, or if you are afk to get teleported somewhere where a rooster or chicken will be gently (but firmly!) reprimanding you. If it continues, you will get a small kick. If it continues again, a longer kick, then a suspension. We hate to be bad guys so please use good judgement and be considerate of others and what the game is designed for. We also have a limited supply of chickens and roosters. Thank you.

Patch Notes 09.20.2021

- Updated player loading process.
- Skills should all be showing now.
- Fix for Hell Spawn - can be accessed via inventor button on follower menu.
- Fixed prisoners so if you drop something into them it can be retrieved.
- Fix for wrong log in check (was supposed to check Vinteruul's dungeon but was looking at Horned Ones).
- Level Requirement on new TR quest (105).
- Fix for tooltips in Pristine Dragon Scale set.


September 18 2021
 From: Dev Kraken

Greetings adventurers of Legends,

In order to ensure that the new content remains freely available for everyone to enjoy, there are some new guidelines that we would like you to adhere to in the sake of fair gameplay. Due to low player volumes over previous years, many people have become accustomed to playing more than one account at a time, please understand that this is not the problem that is being addressed in this statement. The issue we would like to address is with those who run more than 2 clients simultaneously (and sometimes autonomously). If your actions are deemed to negatively affect the gameplay of others by the GM/DEV team then you will be warned on the first offense. Some examples include locking down the new mini-bosses with armies of auto-follow characters, having your characters on autopilot and playing for you while you're AFK via macros, or exhausting spawns in a hunting area through abuse of a party of archers/pets. This is not an all inclusive listing, please be considerate to others in your decisions. Subsequent offenses will be handled at the discretion of this team based on the severity of the situation. Thank you for your continued support!

Regards, The Development Team

Note from Grat: This will now be removed from top post and inserted into the time it was announced. Thank You.

Announcement Issues with Patch 09.18.2021

  • FujiQ — Sept 19 at 8:59 PM
    We will be patching the servers tomorrow at 5pm EDT to address character loading crashing and missing skills.

  • FujiQ — Sept 19 at 5:40 PM
    We may have a way to preserve your existing maps (those of you who explored the map prior to Saturday's patch) so please do not delete any of that map data that is saved locally. We will be working on loading those in. Thank you. I do not have an ETA for this fix.

  • FujiQ — Sept 18 at 10:46 PM
    Please try to leave chars logged off in safe areas until we are able to resolve the character crashing issue. If you log in sometimes you are still in game technically and can be killed by creatures.

  • FujiQ — Sept 18 at 9:51 PM
    We will be working through the other crashers keeping players from accessing specific characters tomorrow. If you can in the mean time post which of your chars are having these issues. Check the two sub threads in the ??help channel Grey Screen crash when loading a player into the world and Login Crashes at Character Select on Certain Characters (Quest Data) . Thank you.

  • FujiQ — Sept 18 at 9:04 PM
    As this has been a busy day we will do our 1000 token raffle another time. Thanks for your understanding!

  • FujiQ — Sept 18 at 8:31 PM
    Everyone may log in - some of you were kicked temporarily and you will see that as a "suspension" but it will clear up in 5 minutes or less. Thank you.

  • FujiQ — Sept 18 at 8:14 PM
    We are fixing shared banks at this time; if you were asked to log out or had an issue with your shared bank after the first patch please stay logged out.

  • FujiQ — Sept 18 at 4:29 PM
    We have identified the issue and are looking into next steps for recovering shared banks. There will be some kind of rollback (definitely anything after server came up).
    We will be disabling shared banks for a moment. No one will be able to access them so that we can safely restore your items.
    H and L are coming back online, no one should have any issues logging in now.
    Those that were able to log in after the patch, and were in a faction, you have lost your shared banks. We are going to individually restore these banks.
    Those that were not able to log in after the patch (Unknown Login Result) your banks are fine, however, you cannot access them at this time.

  • FujiQ — Sept 18 at 3:50 PM
    We have to shut both L and H servers down until we can address the issue with shared banks. Very sorry for the inconvenience.

Patch Notes 09.18.2021

This a significant patch with several system changes, new features, new options, new crafted items, creatures, quests, item adjusts, QoL adjusts, even something for our upcoming events and Chaos. We are working through a pile of changes on our way to Steam; the next patch we will address the mage book (more information) and do a pass on mage spell progression/balance. Thank you for your support as always, and Happy Hunting!!

  • Frieda’s Lair has new minibosses!
  • Several Weapon/Armor/Item adjustments
  • Monster Map reveal spawn feature
  • Please check Video/Game options in ESC menu for several new QoL features

- Reveal Spawns: Can show the location of monster spawns on the map where you have traveled as long as you have been there and killed the monster anywhere at least once. Can only show one creature spawn at a time.
- Map saving/loading on the server; you should no longer need to use the NPC in LSP to “fix” your map. Maps should no longer become garbled. You can load each character’s map from any machine.
- “Traveled” map area exposed; click the button in the top right corner of the map to show where you have traveled; appears as blue circles. To assist those who have map reveal but want to explore the map entirely for Monster spawn locations.
- Character Loading prior to entering the game; progress shown on a loading bar in Character Select screen once you select “Enter Game”; this should help some of the disconnects that happen when entering the game.
- Stamina now displays as Numerical value instead of Percentage.
- Close (x) button now works in the game menu system.
- 105-109 xp bonus has been adjusted up some.
- New Lock Play Area Resize (Video Options) feature to prevent accidental resizing of window during play (currently prevents moving as well but will be patched at a later date).
- New Lock All Game Gui option (Video Options) to lock all of the player GUI down.

- Removed ability to milk and collect eggs from VIP cow/chicken, because y’all were doing very inappropriate things with those poor innocent farm animals. They are now just vanity pets. If you want to milk a pet, you will have to tame a cow. Chickens cannot be tamed; you will have to go find eggs in town, etc.

As promised, I'd like to share a bit on what we've been working on between trying to balance our personal lives this summer since the last large content patch that we delivered. There have been a few minor fixes pushed since that deployment, and now we are prepared to give some details regarding the next major patch. We sincerely appreciate your continued support to the game, and hope that you all are enjoying yourselves during your adventures. This is all I have to share at the moment, but please stay tuned as we'll be releasing some more teasers when things start to make their way into our testing environment and past the pen and paper development stage. Best of luck in all your endeavors, I know you adventurers have quite an insatiable appetite.

Key points are as follows:

There are about 250 upcoming item changes, mostly focusing on loosening requirements for many equipment sets specifically at the level 90+ range. This is intended to ease the leveling process especially for a new player or new hybrid builds.

Four older armor sets are receiving some love to help bring them up to compete better with the current meta, specifically to help balance and bring more worth to some of them in a PvE sense.

Two new sets of armor that are useable by any build at level 107 and at level 109 and are CRAFTED! Both of these sets are intended to not only provide some new fashion choices, but also some possible better combinations specifically for hybrids.

Eight new items to expand your wardrobe from the deep icy caves in Talazar's Revenge. These fashion pieces also happen to have competitive stats.

Seven new weapons to add more flavor to your gameplay options. Three of these belong within Talazar's Revenge, while the other four of them will be found in Sands of Creation.

Three mini-bosses being added to Frieda's dungeon. They are currently in the process of receiving their make-overs and I do not have any finished images to share yet. Please be patient, their mistress expects them to look impeccable.

Various adjustments to weapon procs from last content drop based on community feedback. This also includes patches for the Druid followers to bring them up to the level of Sabal pets (leadership bonus appears to not be applying to their hit points properly).

New healing potion: Potion of Immaculate Restoration - heals for 625 and cures any level of poison/disease that's active on the player, for a price that matches its potency. This will run on the same timer as Greater Healing Potions.

Hello from the development desk!! Just wanted to check in now that the dust has settled from the TR update - thank you for all of the messages and feedback on that, we're thrilled to hear you're enjoying the new gear!

We have all taken a little time off lately to focus on the family and recharge, and are looking forward to getting back into active development soon. Kraken will be posting some more details about an upcoming mini content patch for Talazar's Revenge.

Zarq and I are going to be ironing out the Spawn Map soon - still having some issues loading/saving a large amount of data - but we are looking forward to adding that to our in game tools that are designed with new players in mind.

Our focus moving forward is going to be getting the game ready for Steam but we will continue to fix bugs, adjust items where needed. I'd expect small content additions here and there as well!

A big task we're looking at is adding a buff timer bar that will display current active effects/buffs (similar to feats), and updating mage book with more information in addition to taking a balance pass on spells. When we get to that, we will have a VIP test server open for you to test changes to mage spells. We hope to split up food/drink buffs to make them more useful and interesting as well.

As the world seems to get crazy again we thank you for spending time here and hope that you are staying sane and healthy. Thanks as always for your terrific support and feedback! Happy Hunting!

Here's an early look at the Spawn Map - blue shows where you have travelled and can be toggled on off, and the purple squares are the encounters (can view one at a time). Our feedback so far from test has been positive and it should be a big help for new players trying to complete quests.

Patch Notes 6.19.2021

Icy wind sweeps across the northern wastes...a menacing beast, the work of Talazar’s hand, is ready to avenge its master and lay waste to the glory of mankind. Frost from its mighty wings rolls across the waves, freezing all it touches...

Troubling reports from the last strongholds of men speak of another evil feasting in mountain halls aglow with ruinous weapons and stalked by mighty men of old. An ally of Talazar perhaps, or friend of none? Dare ye disturb the master of the feast?

In this chilly update to one of the most beloved expansions, you will also find new quests, new tradeskill items, and new creatures to hunt. There are new crafting recipes and areas to explore.

In addition to the TR content there is a slew of new weapons to hunt off existing bosses, a major change to the Wanted (temp) system, and a few gear adjusts.

- Lowered INT req for Banished set to 70 (vs 80).

- Guards now have a chance to snare you.

- New Crafting Recipes for Alchemy, Carpentry, Tailoring, Leatherworking.

  • 2 Bear Claws
  • 1 new ingredient (you have to find out yourself!)

- Adjusts to kill requirements on the Whisperdale archer quests to kill 50/50 creatures (down from 75/100).
- Adjusted quest kills for zombie gorillas and horned ones (Sully and Abadii quest). Still requires 5000 Zombie Gorilla Guardians and 12500 Horned Ones but each kill will now count double towards your count.

- Added some housing plots to TR lands; 1x2 and 2x1 plots are not functional, however, we are aware of this issue and hope to fix in a future patch.
- All LSP portal exits are no longer safe zones, in its place are Elite Guards.
- Lotor’s Castle is no longer a safe zone.
- Spawns of Ice Demons, Ice Golems, Northern Frost Giants, and Dire Wolves have been adjusted.
- A new (good) spawn point added to winter lands (you must explore and find it).

- Change to Wanted System:
  • Attacking another player will no longer make you wanted; however, if they or you are in sight of a guard (must be fully on screen, not just their toes/lower half) you will become wanted.
  • Dark guards no longer attack wanted players in towns or Chaos (evil) spawn gates.
  • You can still become wanted by:
    • Looting a corpse or shipwreck.
    • Attacking a neutral NPC (townsperson, etc).
    • Healing/resurrecting a wanted player.
    • Eating evil sacrifices.
  • Followers should no longer attack other players in protect mode.
The Junk Drawer
- Adjusted announcements with the Evil Altar of Offering (SI altar); It should now notify you of its status, and only broadcast at incandescent and bright stages on PvE servers.

Patch Notes 6.3.2021

This is the quiet before the storm...the team has been busy working on a big content release that will focus on adding and adjusting content in TR, but will also include a large number of end-game weapons that will be scattered across the lands. We expect that to ship some time the week of June 17th, it could be Thursday, Friday or Saturday that we patch.

The rundown for today: A system message channel and a few PvP server fixes have been introduced. We will look at wanted rules for PvP servers for the next patch to see how we can improve that experience. There are a few gear adjusts as well, as we continue to fill gaps and make changes to allow all of you who want to grind it out solo to obtain some complete sets. Chaos will get two new altars that will allow monster brains to be turned on and non-king Chaos point gain to go past 50K.

Thank you always for your support and feedback – this is close to the year anniversary of our update in 2020; we are looking forward to what 2021 will bring!

- System Channel can now be split off from your main channel and turn on/off. We have gone through and reduced the number of system messages you will receive at the top of the game window.
- In a related note, the Message of the Day will no longer crash the client since it will be in the system message chat channel. We hope to use that feature more often to communicate with you.
- Removed ammo and gold retention party messages.

- Adjusted requirement, bonuses, and resistances for Myrmidon set.
- Adjusted requirement, bonuses, and resistances for Nordic Warrior set.
- New art for all three Warlord sets (Defender’s, Warmage’s, Archer’s).
- Complete Ritual/Sorcerer gear sets dropping on low rates from non-boss mobs.
- Reduced requirement on Nightstar Shield to 100 STR.
- Adjusted Bloodletter set to level 106 requirement to match as a set.
- Removed CON requirement on Talisman of the Prime.
- Rebalanced Hardened Warden drop availability.
- Rebalanced Soothsayer's Tome drop availability.
- Removed 100% Nature on Heartwood Bow, Crossbow, and 100% Poison on Seething Poison Bow.
- Increased drop chance slightly on pristine blue dragon scales.
- Wretched Ones and Nightmares drop full set of Banished/Wretched/Briarwood (on low chances).
- Tyrian Staff Sling now has an additional rune slot.

- dispare => despair
- Guards should all reappear following KoT events.

- Removed solo flag from Giant Cave Rat, Wyvern Nestling, Putrescent Ghoul, Young Dire Wolf, and Ancient Ogre.
- Reduced number of Tserith's followers.
- Added more Rock Trolls to RT spawn NE of Valmond.

- Altar of the Ancient Kings (requires gold) will turn on point gain for the server past 50K points for the plebians.
- Altar of Chaos (also requires gold) will turn on the monster brains and allow them to attack first.

- Tarvan, Hanvik, Lonvia will now only announce their presence if they are somewhat close to your location.

- A new VIP portal for DISCREET customers is in LSP; you may choose the same options as traditional static portals (Silvest, Krog, Whisperdale, Josody, Parian, Rahura, Khafra, Valmond) and arrive at your destination cloak and dagger, as you wish.
- Fix for cave in Cliffside.
- Added Dark Guards to New Royale spawn gate.
- Added some housing plots to TR lands near Meroven and Duremar.

- Looting with active spell will now make you criminal.
- Victim will be notified when items are taken regardless if dragged or clicked.
- Boats can no longer loot land corpses, and vice versa.

The Junk Drawer
- The days of smuggling gear to Valinor on a boat are over. King Lotor is out in his cigar boat looking for baddies to bust. You dastardly criminals decked out on newbie island should be ashamed of yourselves! You have corrupted the innocent island of Valinor for far too long.

With Chaos season 4 wrapped up, we are looking forward to this weekend's Knight of Talazar event which will start at noon EDT this Saturday the 22nd. Hope to see you there!

The next Chaos server will be a King of Krythan event and will start Friday June 4th running through Sunday June 13th. There will be some modifications to this from the last event, namely, the addition of two altars. Winnings will be posted closer to the date.

We have been working hard on the update for Talazar's Revenge - an entire new line of weapons is slated to be released, along with armor and some tradeskill additions. Several new mobs, including two bosses, and existing spawn adjustments should bring some life to the region as well! I'm excited about the changes and hope to have it shipping at least by end of June but maybe earlier. Thank you everyone for your support as always!

Patch Notes 5.6.2021

A non-content patch tonight; the big takeaways are the DTM xp boost for level 105+ players and changes to crafting. We added a significant boost to ammo production and enchanting materials that should help out everyone who wants to hunt for more than 1 hour at a time.

For example, if you have 3 Disease Unguents and 150 arrows, it will make 150 disease arrows. It will select the highest amount you can make out of both stacks up to 500 total arrows/bolts/pebbles/seekers.

• The whirlpool exit won't block players in hallway; it is hostile but does not move

Hey everyone! A few dates coming up for you to be aware of.

We will be patching next Thursday May 6th at 8:30pm EDT. This is going to contain some various bug fixes, and a few minor additions, and a change to the XP gain for 105-110. We have decided to keep that tied to DTM quests. All players level 105+ will receive 1.5 times xp for a DTM, so for example if you would have received 10M, you will receive 15M experience.

Chaos Season 4 will be happening Friday May 7th at 6pm EDT. This season will be a week of leveling/gearing followed by a tournament on evening of Saturday May 15th. I will post more details about the rewards and how to sign up as we approach the date.

Our next KoT event will be Saturday May 22nd at 12pm EDT. We hope you can join us! Remember we will be rotating time of day of these events to accommodate different time zones/schedules.

I know that things have been a little quiet on our end as of late, and I apologize for that, but it's always easier to share things once you actually have something tangible. There has been a lot of time spent trying to chase down some long-standing issues as well as continued development on the Steam front, but tonight I have a little something else to share with you all. I've spent some time lately working on my art skills (or lack thereof), and it's been an interesting journey. This is the latest set I've developed, and I hope you'll enjoy hunting for it more than I've enjoyed fiddling with trying to get something miniscule in image size that still looks worthy of your time to obtain. Thank you as always for your support!

I would also like to take a moment and thank our intern @The Intern Malgus who has done an excellent job at giving you all some fresh meat. These are a few new NPC models you'll be seeing in-game in the near future. Yep, that's a new BEAR! Rejoice!

Hello Dransik Community and Beyond,

It's with a heavy heart to inform you that I will be stepping away as Developer on Dransik. It has been a fun year of working on the game again on and off. But it is in the best interest of the game for me to hand it off to someone that has more time. I will be taking a new job that I will be sinking more of my life into, and it isn't fair that I keep putting this update off. You will be in great hands, and FujiQ and Zarq will be announcing who will be taking over shortly. Thanks, everyone.



April 16 2021
 From: Dev FujiQ


Just a reminder - Sunday April 18th at 10am EDT is our next KoT event! It will be similar to last month's event. If you are just joining for the first time, be sure to set your spawn somewhere close to Parian, Josody, or Lotor's Castle. To receive the items that the Knight drops (trade items, artifacts, or Knight weapons/armor) you must have a VIP membership. The Knight also spawns an army around him which drops Rune Fragments - that does not require VIP, and the Rune Fragments can be collected, traded, and turned in to an NPC in LSP named Wizard Blunderstone at any time.

Also: Chaos is ending this Sunday April 18th at 6pm EDT! We will be announcing the winners at the end of the season. Good luck to the top 10!

And one more thing - don't forget server transfer options and prices will be changing Sunday April 25th 2pm EDT. If you want to go TO >> Legends from Heroes with a geared character you should plan on getting a transfer before the 25th as that will not be available after that date.

Patch Notes 4.8.2021

A longstanding issue with creatures spawning in the dungeon map has been fixed! It caused spawn issues on the underground cave systems; over time creatures would spawn into the black portions of the map and slowly empty the area of killable spawns. Please leave feedback on caves – and be careful, as some might be more difficult than they previously were.

• Slight DPS adjust on Symboled Blade of Destruction (down)
• Shield of the Sun CON req now 30 (down from 60)

• King of Krythan Event – this event will run throughout Season 3 Chaos. While killing monsters, you have a chance to be crowned the King of Krythan! There is only one King, and all players can see the King on their map. While King you can go beyond the 50K chaos point cap and receive triple points. You will receive a legendary King’s Crown and King’s Blade with deadly DPS and a special effect. King status lasts 20 minutes, or until you die or log out. The King’s Blade is a rune slot large blade with no skill requirement and a hefty buff of +100 to all orbs and +500 HP.
It’s good to be the King!

• Increased spawn of buoys throughout the world and added some more buoy spawn points; shortened respawn timer slightly on all buoys.
• The Dark Alchemist Droawan in Desprail is now a functioning shop and not just a dapper looking but evil hearted gentleman.
• New High level Swamp area West of New Korelth off of the coast of Krythan Island.
• Pour Hour Altar (Good Altar of Offering in Teylan) now costs half as much (in item cost).
• Spawn Increase Altar (Evil Altar of Offering in Meroven) now has a 1 hour cooldown to use following the end of a spawn increase. We will look at adjusting spawns in encounters to help smooth out gameplay experience, until then, we hope this and the dungeon spawning fix will help even out the play experience for everyone.
• Icebane got tired of adventurer’s eves-dropping on him and did a little rearranging in the ‘ol lair.

• Creatures should no longer spawn in the void; please share feedback on spawns as there were too many to individually test and we can adjust as necessary. Thank you.
• Adjusted spawn timer and drop tables for dungeon minibosses Der Schlaechter and Krank Brut. Extra kranky!
• Adjusted spawn timer for Lotorian Crypt minibosses (Volsey, Lancel, Hobernsrnosfjskdjfkldsajorl).
• Totem of Sabal's Children followers have been adjusted to circumvent abuse of their innate 100% resistances.
All Sabal followers now have a static 65% damage reduction, and health modifier was changed to accommodate a similar toughness. This has come at a slight cost in their DPS output. In addition, special abilities have been removed from the Marrowsucker to prevent abuse of berserk and the Bonecrusher because he would sometimes get caught in a loop trying to cast root continuously.

• The Henchman store item has been updated and improved. This is a 10 token rental for 6 hours that will give you a level appropriate follower. You will also receive a totem which you can use to quickly resummons them from anywhere in the world if they suffer an unfortunate accident on the job (please don’t call OSHA). Please speak to the Henchman trainer in LSP (south of bank & west of the LSP Farm) to start your henchman timer and receive a totem. Level table below:

o Player Level 0-15: Level 10 henchman
o Player Level 15-24: Level 20 henchman
o Player Level 25-34: Level 30 Henchman
o Etc etc etc nobody remembers these levels anyways, let’s be honest
o Player Level 85-94: Level 90 Henchman
o Player Level 95-104: Level 100 Henchman
o Player Level 105+: Level 105 Henchman

• Rune Pack and Greater Potion Pack store changes are now live on L server (see previous hotfix for details on what is included). This patch added Rune of Isos and Ulthien to Rune Pack.

• Demon Spires will now spawn regularly throughout Krythan Island and Hell on Chaos only. These are high level encounters that will spawn difficult mobs as you chip away at the spire. Any players on the spire’s hate list will receive treasures randomly, in similar way to Knight of Talazar. This is designed to be a PVP focal point as they reliably drop high level gear, including Rune items, when killed.
• A Merchant from far away has unloaded his pack horse on a secluded island in Mainlands, selling valuable commodities such as Blood Bandages, Crates, Malacinth, pie, and rare and valuable potions for gold. A fee of 25K gold is required to enter. (Chaos Only)
• Parian Warlord quest lines can now be completed on Chaos.


April 05 2021
 Today From: Dev FujiQ

Chaos Server details below!

Season 3 will be more like Season 1 with a few changes.
- No Chaos point loss
- No item degrade
- Mainlands (not limiting to Krythan)
- New Chaos merchant selling mats and potions for gold (portal between Chlera/Desprail that is currently unused)
- King of Krythan event
- Demon Spires (dropping Rune gear)
- High xp and drop rates again, movement fixed, mob AI turned off

We are trying to shift away from mob point grinding and more towards the rush of getting to be the King. If you are a casual or solo player, I encourage you to try it out! Randomly while playing every so often a new King will be crowned with some gear that will make you - almost - unstoppable. We are keeping prizes similar to Season 1, however, you can only claim the top 5 places if you have NOT won in the last 2 rounds. You can still play if you'd like, just keep that in mind!

Rewards are as follows:
1st Place: Souvenir King's Blade + all following awards
2-5th Place: Choice of: Transfer one Chaos player from Chaos to an empty H slot on the same account (no stackable items may be brought over) OR 1 player level on any char (H or L); 5 Berserker Pots for the next Chaos + all following awards
6-10th Place: Scrolls of return in a Large Knapsack + 5 Berserker Potions for Chaos season 4; 4 event tickets, Cloak of Customer Appreciation.


March 29 2021
 Today From: Dev FujiQ

Hotfix for H only tonight.

This hotfix was to address the issue with wanted players unable to board boats in SoC, but other things got bundled with it.

- Adjusted token shop rune pack and potion pack quantities and composition (this will be live on L at the next update)
- New follower script uses player con and leadership skill to determine its max HP. Totem of Sabal followers (Deceiver, Bonecrusher, Marrowsucker) are getting their stats adjusted at the next update to compensate for this change.
- Wanted players can board boats in SoC

New Potion Pack (H only)
- 50 Greater Healing, Greater Stamina, Greater Repair, Cure Greater Disease, Cure Greater Poison Potions
- 15 Greater Disease, Greater Poison Potions
- 5 Potion of Lycanthropy
- 5 Oil of Restoration

New Rune Pack (H only)
- 50 of each Class Rune, 50 Gazelle Antlers, 50 Idol of Arna
- 25 Rune of Malith, Malenox, Agon, Sabal, Veldan, Kuthos, Adregard

Once again, these changes will be applied to L store potion and rune bag packs at the next update. We hope this is a better value for your money and saves you a little time as well! Thank you!

Chaos Season 3 Update:

An update on Chaos: We will have to postpone the start of Chaos Season 3 for a week. New start date April 9th at 5pm. Since we're doing something new with the server (Demon Spires and King of Krythan event) we need a bit more time to test and make sure it's ready to go. The rewards will be posted this week. Thanks for your understanding!

Important Token Store News:

IMPORTANT: On April 25th at 2pm EDT we will raising the cost of Deluxe moves and disabling Deluxe moves from H > L server. This is to help balance the economies on both servers. Regular server moves (with no items or bank) will still be available from H > L. Deluxe moves will still be available to go to H but they will be more expensive than they are now.

DO NOT pre-buy server moves expecting to make money off of the cost difference - we will be refunding any server moves that you have when make this change. Please make any changes you need to in advance. If you need any assistance with your account please submit a ticket on the Secure site:

 From: Dev FujiQ
March 22 2021

How is it already the end of March?? The development team has been busy the last 2 months. We have launched Chaos, revamped another dungeon, and been working on integrating the client, customer website, and payments to work seemlessly with Steam.

Today we would like to welcome a new face to the project! Please welcome DEV Intern Malgus - he is going to be helping us with quest design and art for Talazar's Revenge, probably also bug fixing and other details to help us get ready for steam! We are going to take a look at that area next, including a revamp, some new creatures, adjusting spawns, etc. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do!

Steam integration is still coming along; a few roadblocks to tackle, then we will be polishing and updating some areas of the game including mage spells and tradeskills. We're hoping for a Steam launch by early summer 2021, though it depends on how clean everything is by that point.

Other than that, we are still working on some ideas for Chaos so we can find a good style and pace that works for that community. It has been a lot of fun to watch the pvp battles unfold there. Demon Spires are the next project for Chaos and little adjustments to Krythan Island (including a "new" town) so we can try a "King of Krythan" server. As always thank you for your feedback and support! AE has a wonderful community that we are glad to work with so you can "play your way."

 Today From: Dev FujiQ

Patch 3.18.2021

This patch introduced a few new items but mostly adjusts to drop rates of gear and stats on gear. We will begin working on new content for H/L in a few weeks.

• 2 new items dropping from the Knight of Talazar: Gatherer’s Cloak and Refiner’s Helm; cloak increases resources gathered (mining, lumberjacking, foraging, fishing) and the helm reduces time spent processing items (sawing, smelting, spinning, weaving, tanning).
• 2 new items dropping from Athropiniax: Ring of Arcane Power and Pendant of Arna’s Blessings. Pendant of Arna’s Blessings gives an increase in damage to Repentenance and Mage Storm, removes requirement to have idol of Arna to cast Arna’s Blessing. Ring of Arcane Power increases damage using spells Thunder Strike and Soul Melt.
• All Warlord Gear (Defender, War Mage, Archer) is now repairable.
• Sorcerer’s Tunic now gives same buffs as Robe of Dark Rites.
• Full Metal Cloak is now craftable via Blacksmithing.
• Knightcaster gear set now requires level 108 and 100 STR/100 INT.
• Paladin of the Flame gear now requires level 107; INT stat bonus increased on many pieces.
• Adjusted stats on Ritual and Sorcerer gear sets.
• Adjusted stats on Full Metal/Tangled/Spectral gear sets.
• Adjusted stats on Ethereal Platinum gear set (now gives more pierce and disease resist).
• Tooltip on Frost Bolts now says correct Secondary damage type.

• Increased drop chance of Rune Armor (limited time).
• Increased drop chance of Dark Essence.
• Ring of Stardust dropping again (was accidentally culled).
• Reduced weight on Harvester Claws and Gargoyle Horns.
• Loot drops now colored by item.

• Knight of Talazar event change: Knights use a bigger creature model for easier targeting. Their followers will not drop corpses. They will spawn closer to their intended targets. They also have an increased attack range and more damage reduction for a longer fight.

• All Criminal Spawn Gates are now marked Safe Zones.
• Many map holes in Broken Finger Dungeon have been repaired. This should help with monster spawning there.
• A portal in the jungle temple will now allow you to bypass the switches; once you have completed stage 1 and 2 of Sully’s quest, and are on the stage to kill jellies, you can use the portal to enter the second level of the temple.

• HEROES ONLY: Monster follow distance has been reduced to discourage mob dropping. If this is successful we will roll it out to Legends as well. It will make it harder to round up masses of creatures to mass AOE kill, but it will also make travel a little easier in some areas.
• Split spawn of Gluttons/Female Gluttons so that all types are present in their spawn region north of Parian.
• Spore Summoner spawn timer has been reduced and randomized slightly.

• Wanted boats can now dock/set sail.

• Marla Moculous quest no longer repeatable.


March 15 2021
 Announcements From: Dev FujiQ


The next Knight of Talazar event will be Friday March 19th at 6pm EDT. We will be rotating the time/day of this event to try to accommodate different schedules. There will be adjustments to the event next month as well to try to correct some of the issues with targeting, as well. See you then!


Live patch - Heroes only
- Scroll of the Demon Horde has been temporarily disabled


Live patch
- VIP Soulstone will now send you to LSP if on H/L and Lotor's Castle if on Chaos.


We will be patching Thursday evening at 8:30pm EDT. A few adjustments to gear and drops will be in this patch.
Reminder also for the KoT event on a Friday at 6pm EDT.

 Today From: Dev FujiQ

Some of you have had questions about the event on Saturday - here's some details to help you plan ahead

1. The Knights are now the only source for an artifact to drop. It is a lower chance than last year's event due to the fact that we will run this event every month from now on.

2. Parties will be enabled, PVP will be enabled on Heroes, guards will be disabled. This means that you won't get jailed, but when/if you die wanted (flashing grey) you will re-spawn at the nearest crim gate. Please remember to set your good and evil spawn point near the town you think you will be defending ahead of time. The closest crim gate to Lotor's Castle is Lopal or the gate North of Varg (south of LSP).

3. Knights will drop randomly through their entire hate list. When the Knight of Talazar dies, loot will be distributed randomly to anyone who attacked or provoked him (or by healing another, etc) that is reasonably near him. However, to prevent farming items, this is restricted to VIP members. That means if you want to have a chance at any of his drops (artifacts or unique Knight-only items) you need to be VIP and be attacking him or healing another, etc.

4. Rune Fragments are no longer no-drop. These will still drop from the Knight's spawns (he spawns Demons and Hell Spawns). That means you can turn on auto backpack loot and trade them. Anyone can collect these (Non VIP included). They can be turned in at LSP to the Wizard Blunderstone (located in the main throne room area of LSP).

5. The Knights will stay on their patrol. You will not be able to drag them all over the world into a secret corner to kill them. If they do disappear, it is because they have gone back to their mission.

Zarq and I will each be on one server to make sure things go smoothly but please don't expect speedy response as we will be doing our best to manage all sites. We will help if we can but may be busy. Thanks for your support! Good luck!!


February 14 2021

Patch 01.31.2021

This was supposed to be delayed a few more weeks, but because of the pause (almost explosion), it has to go now. We were not 100% ready to release this update, so if there are some visual and gameplay balance details that seem unfinished, that is why. Thanks for understanding! We’d rather have a few visual things and inconveniences than players lose items/time.

Gameplay Mechanics:
- A new Skill: Identification (See Development Notes Below)
- Auto Targeting for Melee/Archery (Use the ~ button)

- Increased return from shearing (bonus with more leadership)

- New Items to compliment the new Identification Skill and Hunter’s Handbook
- 3 types of Ink can now be made as part of alchemy. Revealing Ink, Exposing Ink, Illuminating Ink. New creature drops were added to support this, but all recipes use some existing drops in game.

- Apply Ink to Rough Scroll and Vellum to make Scrolls of Identification that always succeed and give varying boost to the amount you learn about a creature.

- Adjusted stats on Ethereal Plat, Pristine, and various mid level necklaces.
- Burning Ring and Wolf Totem are now dropping (accidentally excluded).
- Staff of Glyphs and Ramthananax’s Fury specials adjusted.

- Adjusted several low-mid level boss timers; now randomized: Arllandah, Wasp Queens, Ewwww, Termigon Queens, Slobberknocker, Oak Rot, Hugla, Master Blaster, King Kobold, The Adversary (NEW), Andreev the Quick, King Mack Mack, Bonesnarl, Frump, Boss Scalo, Lava Mold, Umbergon, Goba Longblade, Ratnack, Snagglefang.
- Ilanpa the Temptrest now spawning.
- Raqlun, Unkea, Ilanpa should not wander too far and be inaccessible (because they were “ethereal” they would wander into mountains forever).
- Lotor Crypt minibosses and some creatures now have chance to drop Paladin of the Flame and Holy Order gear.
- Lotor Crypt minibosses spawn adjusted.
- King Mack Mack no longer drops WWT, something else does.
- Adjusted deep shadows in Whisperdale.
- Orc alchemist shops now working (Krog, Samad, Maraket, Grell).
- Scorpions now dropping beginner potions instead of greater potions.

- Fixed holes in dragon caves where players can get lost/stuck.

- Silvest Mage Trainer quest line is now available: Talk to Val Clockworks on south side of Silvest, near pond, to start. Known bugs.

- NEW Level 50-80 quest line starting Parian: Speak to the Warlords in Parian town hall.
- Adjusted foraging TM to ask for quantity of any seed, not one seed type (still some bugs here).
- Identification quest added to Valinor and Lotor’s Castle.
- Added killcount tip to Captain of the Guard on Valinor.
- Added remind messages on the lowbie Night Elf Archer quests and more info on what weapon is needed for each quest.

Development Notes 01.31.2021

We were not expecting to be pushing this build today but it does contain lots of new features, so we hope you are enjoying them, especially the game window resize feature! Please bear with us if the polish isn't quite there, it was close, but there are known bugs.

I'd like to explain how the Identify Skill works to anyone who would like to try that out. We are going to add map spawn feature to the Hunter's Handbook at some point, but it was not ready yet. However, you can begin identifying creatures and filling out their stats in the book.

The Hunter's Handbook:
+ Press H to open the book

+ The first page shows how many types you have killed (at least one time) out of the total possible, it also shows your kill counts for each category. You can click a category (or multiple) to only view those creatures in the book

+ The second page is a search feature; it will search through everything you have killed so far. You can also enter a blank search to scroll through all types if you wish.

+ Past that are creature pages. Each creature type has its own page. Everyone will start knowing only the name and kill count. As you begin to identify creatures, more information will appear. The progress bars on the right show total progress until next "tier" is uncovered and overall progress to completely identify that creature.

+ To begin gaining this skill you need one of two tools (there will be more, has not been added yet). Scalpel (crafted with carpentry) or a Looking Glass (a drop off of certain creatures). There are also quest NPCs who will help you get started with this skill in Valinor (Knight Bastrop) and Lotor's Castle (Aedelhun).

+ When you ID a creature, you have a chance to succeed or fail. It is not based on any orb stat. The amount you learn about the creature depends on your skill level in identification. You can only ID a particular spawn one time. Bosses give additional points.

+ Scrolls of Identification are instant successes and give varying amounts of information. Minor Scroll of Identification (green), Scroll of Identification (blue), and Major Scroll of Identification (red).

+ To make scrolls, use Quality Leather = Rough Scroll, Superior Leather = Vellum, and Flawless Leather = Flawless Vellum.

You must apply ink to the parchment. There are three inks: Revealing Ink (green), Exposing Ink (blue) and Illuminating Ink (red).

The inks can be created starting at level 24, 55, and 80. Here are the materials you need to create each one:

I'll let you figure out what drops these new materials...Enjoy!

 Today From: Dev FujiQ

Following up from the convo in #?game-mechanics-suggestions , here's a preview of what we've been working on. We initially thought this up as a feature to help new players but I think it will be useful for everyone to some extent! We've even added a new category and skill to support this. Identification is the new skill coming out with this feature and it will fall under the category "Discovery."

The book (still nameless) will have a page to show your kill counts per category. You will be able to click the categories to filter your book and search results (helpful for DTMs). There is also a search feature so you can quickly drill down to the creature you are interested in.

There's still some formatting and colors to fix but it's coming along nicely! Unfortunately in the first release of this feature, spawns will not be recorded on your map due to the size of data being handled.

I don't have a latest screenshot of the creatures, but here's basically what will be on the page once you have fully identified a creature. As you can see there's a double entry and the category (for kill counts and DTMs) is missing here. Still have some clean up to do.

NOW that being said, I'd love to open this up to the community to help us come up with a name - obviously monster manual is not gonna fly! Please submit your suggestions in the #?game-mechanics-suggestions channel!

Hi everyone! Hope you're enjoying your weekend!

Just wanted to announce that the Knight of Talazar event will be running monthly on the 3rd Saturday of each month starting February 20th. We will try to time these to be accommodating to our players, many of whom are international, and may rotate the time of day that they start. There will still be a chance for the artifacts to drop but it will be much lower than it was in July. As Kraken mentioned, the Knight will also begin dropping some items (armor, mostly) that are unique to him. We are working on a permanent solution for introducing artifacts into the game that is not event driven, but until then, we hope that this is a fun event for everyone.


January 08 2021
 Today From: Dev Kraken

Hello everyone, just wanted to share a little behind the scenes of the upcoming 100+ content that will be coming along in the near future. I know many of you have been asking for timelines, and although I cannot give you any specifics there, I can tell you that we are doing as best as we can to work this into the game soon, but there's always some fine-tuning that's required during the process of adding new items. The next group of items are now tangible things instead of just data on a spreadsheet. Next steps include item artwork (the appearance in your backpack/item slots) and fine tuning of stats and balance testing. I'd like to share a little teaser of how they look while equipped at this point.

110 Int/Dex 110 Int/Con 100+ Generic

In addition to the above sets, there is a new set being introduced that will drop during the Knight of Talazar events that will be held regularly as @FujiQ stated previously. This set is a generic set, and I hope you can collect them all for your bank sitting pleasure. This Knight's set will not require any specific orbs, but it does have a level requirement. There is also an assortment of Knight's weapons, which again have no requirements beyond 100 skill, but they're probably not going to replace any of your endgame weapon choices.

We hope you enjoyed it as well!

December 11 2020
 Today From: Dev FujiQ

CHAOS Server will be opening in roughly 5pm Eastern!

There are a few things to know before you begin:

Chaos Energy
- We have implemented a Chaos point system that we want to test as a possibility for ranking players. This tracks your creature kills and rewards you based on the creature's difficulty level.
- Once you leave Valinor you will automatically receive a NO DROP stone that looks like a rune fragment. It is a Chaos Fragment. You can click it to check your points. We may add ways to use this energy in the future but that has not been enabled in this build.
- Whenever you kill a creature, you will see a yellow message under "Your heart feels more pure" that will say how many points you have gained. In parties this will be split up based on who is on his "hate" list.
- When you DIE to creature, you will lose some points (currently set to 5%). When you die to a player, you lose some points which they will gain (also set to 5% but can change depending on feedback).

Chaos Server Settings
- We have adjusted monster difficulty, XP rate, drop rates, tradeskill harvesting rates, turned off many automatic or repeatable quests, and some spells. Player speed, stamina, and levels have been adjusted as well. Level cap is 100.
- We are looking for your feedback on how to make this an exciting fast paced gameplay style!

Game Window Resize
- In this test client you will be able to resize your Game Window by dragging the border. We will most likely add a way to lock the ratio. If you want to reset the window to its original size, type "/pa reset" in chat. Please post any bugs you find about it in our bugs channel.

Auto Targeting
- Welcome to 2020! While in COMBAT mode, press ~ to cycle through targets on screen. We are working on this feature, though please note that mage spells are not able to use this system (except melee or ranged attacks with the mage weapon).

NOTE: These two features are currently ONLY available on Test. Please post bugs! Thank you!


December 05 2020
 Today From: Dev FujiQ

There is a known client crasher involving the map reveal that was recently introduced. We are working on a fix but please be aware that if you use Map Reveal on a character right now it will crash your client.

Are you ready for Chaos??

We will be opening up a public Chaos test server next Friday December 11th at 5pm EST! This will last several days or possibly a week. It will be a playtest to help us pin down server config options for the first server - creature difficulty, xp gain, loot drop, PVP rules, etc. We probably have a few things to smooth out before we're ready for a live Chaos server, so we hope you'll pitch in your feedback and playtest a new way to enjoy Ashen Empires! You do not have to be a VIP member or a PVP server member to join this test . We had a lot of fun at the PVP events on the public VIP test server back in September and think you'll enjoy it.

See you then!

Our VIP grab bag for December is an Orb Reset and Race/Gender change.

Thank you for your continued support and feedback!

 Today From: Era / AEDatabase

The app has been released:
Apple App Store https://apps.apple.com/us/app/ae-database-auction/id1540637659
Google Play Store https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sparrogon.AEAuction

I also added these links to the side menu on the left (of AEDatabase website) so it's easily accessible. There is also the web version at https://aedatabase.com/auction. The native apps should be more performant so please use them instead of the web version if you can. If you see anything buggy or have feedback or suggestions, please use the "Contact / Bug Report" option in the app (must be logged in to use it), or you can send me (Hellamund#9457) a message on Discord. There may be bugs, so use with caution for the first month or so!

A nice feature is you can directly link to screens in the app, so if you want to share a link to a listing or link to your profile which will have all your active listings, you can click the link button on the top right of those screens (or just copy the URL if you are on the web version) and share the link with people, for example, https://aedatabase.com/auction/user/1 There are no mobile push notifications yet, but you will receive an email notification for a lot of things. Push notifications will be coming soon.

The original sell listings on aedatabase.com are now deprecated (I added a warning on those pages) and it will be removed at the end of the year.

Novempurge anyone? The grab bag this month has some things to help you clean up your bank and your broken gear:

(3) Item Rename
(1) Chest of Holding
(2) Summon Corpse
(1) Item Restore Tools
(4) Personal Power Hour

These are for VIP members - a great value for $5 a month! Most of these grab bags are worth at least $15 of products and most times over $20 value. Pretty good deal if you ask me!

For our new/returning players, the grab bags will automatically be applied to your account on the anniversary of your 1st month subscription, then on the 1st of the month following that. If you lapse, that starts over. So once you get on the VIP train you'll get stuff every 1st of the month.

Any questions please reach out to me via DM or support ticket at https://secure.pixelminegames.com/SupportSubmitTicket.aspx

Welcome Dev Kraken to the team!

He is a veteran player of the game who has experience on both servers. He will be leading design primarily on high level content though may jump in other places where needed. We are glad to have him on board! He has already been at work on the weapon rebalance, the ancient giant content, and content for the next patch. Look forward to more great content from our newest developer!

 Today From: Dev FujiQ

Hey everyone - check out the merch shop at Redbubble! Chaotic has a few designs up there for you to chose from. The tshirts and stickers are great quality. I was wearing the essential t-shirt during today's livestream. The sizes run true. If there's a product you'd like to see available with a certain design let us know and we will hook it up for ya!

Ashen Empires Merchandise

Each one of the designs there is available in multiple products (shirts, hoodies, stickers, cups, magnets). Just a few pictured here for you to choose from.

We picked this site because it offers international shipping; my order took about 10 days to arrive but may be longer depending on where you live of course.

The Halloween Dungeon is Open!!!

Today From: Dev FujiQ

This event will last through Nov 1st (All Saints Day)

Here's how the Halloween dungeon works:
• Enter through the portal.
• Once you cross into the dungeon you will automatically be given a trick or treat bag.
• Kill monsters inside the dungeon as you are spontaneously transformed into various costumes.
• Monsters have a chance to drop candy corn.
• Once you have enough candy corn talk to the Pumpkin Collector near the dungeon entrance who will take and count the candy.
• When you log out the server will check how much you have collected and award a prize based on how much you have collected. (I would suggest saving up then turning it in all at once if you want to get a specific prize.)
• You can turn candy in for prizes as many times as you want.

Good luck and Happy Hunting!

Prizes:(amount of candy corn)
1-199: Mask of the Pumpkin
200-499: Ghost and Goblin Choker
500-2499: Trick or Treat Band
Over 2500: Totem of the Indian Harvest

Also Quest Log currently does not expand so you can not see the contents/text of your current quests other then thru chat updates.

Zarq should be checking into these this evening at some point and hopefully some update on an ETA when they will be back to 'normal'

October 12, 2020
 Today From: Dev FujiQ (annoucements from discord)

We’re expecting to patch the servers tonight with a few fixes - alignment colors not displaying properly, plus a few other things that needed adjusted/fixed. We also decided to remove the flashing name colors on crusader/scourge align and go with solid colors. There is also a more granular “spectrum” between good and evil that uses more colors to show where you’re at on the scale.

 Today From: Dev FujiQ (chaos from discord)

Welcome to the beginning of the Chaos server! I’ve got a big list of settings for version 1 that I’ll post here after this AE patch.

Patch Notes 10.10.2020

A non content update here today - though look forward to new content in the next update! This was a big systems change - thank you for your patience. I'm sure there may be other things to iron out with alignment so please share that in the #bugs channel.

System Changes:
• Alignment now being used for player, NPC, name colors and town status rather than faction. Faction quests still available using old rules; faction no longer should limit who you can party or attack or heal. If something is amiss def let us know. It was a lot of work and we’re glad to move on with life. Town takeovers still work.
• Hooks to turn off various features (quests, factions, etc) for server variations
• Creatures now spawning in a wider radius around you; there will be more creatures in the world now at anygiven time so we will be monitoring server performance but if you notice UNUSUAL latency please give us a heads up. The original restriction was put in place to prevent server running hot. Now that we are in the year 2020, come what may! You will not have mobs spawning on top of you when you run into an inactive chunk.

• Ancient Sword of Agon has a new PVP special that has a small chance to proc
• Blue Revenge, Minos Royale, Pit Fiend set orb requirements to equip changed to open it to more builds

• Essence of Ryonkah (shield) mismarked as jewelry.

• Brev’s Measuring Cup fixed and no longer degrades on use.

If you find the criminals while they’re in the world, and kill them, you will receive a head that you can turn in for a bounty to Sir Vantic at Lotor’s Jail (the guy who announces you have a visitor in the waiting room; get there from Lotor’s Castle). There is a server message announcing when they spawn into the world. Bounty on their head is 10mil gold and 1 mil xp for Hanvik/Lonvia; 1 mil gold and 500K xp for Tarvan.
• NPCs Conal, Imbyr, and Alchemist Smithwitch are back open for business.

• Haste spell effect now clears upon logout.
• Adjusted carpentry output quantity to double at level 100.
• Using resurrect/raise the dead (and bandages) on a wanted player’s corpse will ask for confirmation before you can proceed.

• Fixed 2x2 Guild Hall plot north of Jeel that was causing serve crash when inspecting with surveyor's tools.
• Added music to carbonite/cold giant cave

 Today From: Dev FujiQ

Attention!!! We will be patching the live servers this week - if you read nothing else, just know that your alignment will be what guards look at, not your faction! So if you are a CRUSADER or SCOURGE or WANTED (temp) make sure you are in the correct town when you log off.

Divine (no evil or scourge or wanted may enter)
Lotor's Castle

Evil (no crusader may enter)
Maroven (TR)
Rahura (SOC)

All other towns are NEUTRAL. Anyone may enter these towns. Assuming you aren't wanted, of course.

 Today From: Dev FujiQ

Thanks to everyone who participated in boss runs, pvp duels, and the VF pvp event tonight! It was great to be able to get feedback on all of those systems and, tbh, was just fun. I've turned on monster spawning on the test server and the Halloween dungeon. Enjoy the limited GM powers - we'll be spinning down the test server some time this weekend.

September 21, 2020
 Today From: Dev FujiQ

This is the last week for the test server (probably)! We will be having a different testing "event" every night this week starting Tuesday at 8pm EST.

If you join and contribute you will be entered in raffle for player donated items and tokens. A few generous players have offered some items for the raffle. If you would like to donate any items, please send me a DM. We will match whatever is donated. I have several token and item donations already. One main account can be entered in raffle per day.

Tuesday: Boss testing (gear up ahead of time please) for Ghost of Lotor, Alton Carbon Zule

Wednesday: Boss testing for Icebane Coldstone, So Kang Kang

Thursday: Polearm PVP testing. Will test at mid and high level - maybe 50/110? Make chars ahead of time. Need some non poles. Will post more on this.

Friday: PVP event in 2 parties; First to kill boss wins (not anything just bragging rights)

Friday night we'll turn on monster spawning and you guys can have fun with it a few more nights then I think we will turn it back off until needed again.

Current donated raffle items are 2200 Tokens (to be divided into a few pools), EEO legs, and a Nith run's worth of scales (1 pristine red + 20 red dragon scales). We will match this donation.

Edit A: 7:30am She told me she thinking of adding an additional Group at 1:30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Edit B: 6:39pm Add to that a full set of EEO, frost coated helm and boots. I will also chip in some of those customer appreciation cloaks.

September 19, 2020
 Today From: Dev FujiQ

Hey everyone! Zarq and I have had a lot of people message us this week. We wanted to take a moment to publicly respond. We received many DMs regarding the Chaos server and whether it will be a Pre-DS version, especially in light of what happened on the fan project. I have responded to all of those DMs and very much appreciate all of the feedback and suggestions.

Recent events sort of dovetailed together with that happening (and I don't have to spell it out, but you know what that was) and us shifting our focus to a Chaos server. This week we busted out some simple changes to bring the game closer to that experience. We have unbundled faction code from a lot of systems. We have made hooks that let us turn different expansions off/on. There is much work to be done, though, and I expect that it will take some iterations to get right. Several people have offered to help work on that; we will need it! I was not around for that era of gameplay, so really, I am relying on the community to help design it. We may have to make some calls time to time on whether its feasible, however. Zarq and I came back because we love the game; we know you do also and want to enjoy time in a game you call "home." Help us make it home.

I also want to take a minute to say - just because we shift our focus from time to time doesn't mean we are leaving other areas of gameplay to gather dust. We will essentially have 3 servers with slightly different gameplay styles, plus Dransik Classic, and so we will have to bounce around from time to time. We do not value H over L over Chaos over DC, etc.

Watch for the next live stream - when we are ready to open Chaos we will announce in advance and will share a few other little things happening. As always, happy hunting!

September 12, 2020
  Today From: Dev FujiQ

We are currently working on opening our test server for public testing for VIP members. I expect it to be ready some time today. The purpose of the test server will primarily be to rapidly iron out PVP changes and get a few things ready for the Chaos server, though you are welcome to try different builds, items, etc. That being said, the server will be coming up/down often. There will be a separate channel for the test server where you can report bugs. Please be sure when reporting to note that it is TEST server and not live.

Also, in order to expedite testing we have enabled some features that are normally reserved for GMs/Devs. This includes the spawning of items and creatures and a nuke command for killing creatures. There is also an NPC who will give levels and experience. I will post more information about this later, but please note that it is only funny for a little bit to fill LSP with Nithhogrs then it becomes annoying and hinders people who are trying to be productive and test. If it does become a problem you will get kicked from the test server. So, please use good judgement about when that is appropriate (or not). Anyone who uses the test server to find exploits and the like will be kicked as well.

Today at 9:43 PM Eastern
Ok everyone, we're ready to open the test server. Thanks for your patience! If you'd like to patch more quickly:

1. Patch the test server a few seconds, then cancel the patch.
2. Copy the Contents of the Ashen Empires folder into the Ashen Empires Test folder.
3. Resume the patch on the launcher.

Note the launcher page has instructions for spawning items. You must do this in the whisper channel. Be careful not to spawn a stationary object or it will get stuck in your backpack.

There is a test NPC named Heidi in LSP by the docks/throne room. You can talk to her for levels, epool, a speed buffed ring, and dragon quests/master dragon kills/master giant kills.

(Slight Bug at this time LSP portals not recognizing VIPs atm - being looked into).
11:00pm Eastern - Seems to be fixed at this time.

Summer's almost over but good things are ahead! A shout out to all parents with kids in school or at home, all the teachers, and the students (I know some of you are still hitting the books!). We are hosting a boosted normal xp rate of 1.5 this entire week (ending Monday September 7th at 10pm EST). This will stack with Personal and Altar power hours for 1.85 the normal xp gain.

Happy Hunting!

Patch Notes 8.28.2020

We have been busy with a few very large system changes that were tedious and not terribly interesting to mention; but basically, in order to get the game ready for a new server, we had to rebalance all sub 100 weapons as well as retool all of those corresponding drop tables. Mobs will now typically drop items that reflect their level more accurately. Many weapons were removed from drop tables, though a majority of them can still be crafted. Drop rates for lower level mobs have increased (no more .03% chance to get a rapier of the cat). Another system change was made to the way randomness was seeded (maybe Zarq will elaborate if you are to ask him…).

I would also like to announce that we will be officially RETIRING the Heilige Lance from drop tables. It is no longer dropping from any monster in game; therefore, if you have them, consider them to be a commodity which will not be coming back! Measuring cups have also been removed; an innocuous item that was useless, but hey, you can put them on your shelf and let them catch dust if you have them. Look for future patches to retire and introduce gear to keep things interesting!

And finally…though many of our changes to date have been to clean up the game and the new Quest window and Leadership systems, for all the 105+ players…hearken thine ears!!

Zule has long awaited a chance to strike back at the many enemies that stalk his lair! Drawing on an ancient power found deep in the mine, he has trained a force of warriors to repel invaders that want to lay claim to his treasure horde. . .

Enjoy a new challenging adventure there and among other ToF giantkin…

o Gloves and cloak of archmage now req level 50 (adjusted down)
o Sandals of the fleet now req level 30 (adjusted down)
o Updated Boots of the Traveller orbs stats and small speed boost

o Adjusted Ettin Island
o Fixed Horned Devil spawn in Tserith dungeon
o Several generic NPC names fixed (no more bankers, merchants, etc). Maybe a few more lingering so if you see some out there in the world (esp NPCs that use a monster skin) lmk
o Added skeletal mage to Undead creature category for DTM count

o NEW Follower option: Assist. Followers target what you target
o If base attribute is >= 100, can tame creatures aligned with those orbs

o Fixed Kobold Attack quest so that you can talk to Lowe's again if you fail
o Fix for Lotorian Knight quest when it is cancelled
o Fix for Artraxis quest (if you had previously completed it, it appeared as if you still need to talk to Darok. Once you talk to him it will correct itself)

o Updated smelter's gloves to be armor and fit into armor cabinet
o New magic tradeskill item

o Newly added skills now appear in skill window as they are obtained
o Adjusted heal value of bandage and timer on bandage and healing pot.

I'm not going to give away too much of what will happen, however, do know that the Knights and their entourage will drop some No Drop items called Rune Fragments. These are unique event only no drop items that you can collect and exchange for gold, item restoration tools, or a runeshard.

There is an NPC in LSP called Wizard Blunderstone (in the throne room) who will do this exchange for you. He is a permanent resident.

After the patch feel free to talk to him and see what the exchange rates are - 1 fragment is 100K gold. 40 is 2 item restoration packs. 80 is a runeshard.

All artifacts have been updated to be relevant end-game items. Most notable change is that they no longer require orb builds to equip just player level or skill level to equip. The armor remains no drop. All weapons are now tradeable (two were no drop).

Be prepared for a beefy boss who has a big entourage of hellish creatures around him. I'll say no more! Meet in LSP at 2:30 for the pre-game!
