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!

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

 Today From: Grat Rochord

Word of Warning

Currently item degradation is not showing up on item tool-tips. It is still working and it is there but just not showing. Please be cautious on what you buy and from whom. Also be wary of when you die and items take damage, aka repair often if you die often.

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'

UPDATE: From Zarquon

Durability bug fixed.

 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.

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.

 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 Adjusted heal value of bandage and timer on bandage and healing pot.

Knight of Talazar Event Details

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!
