We would like to introduce a new server unique settings and many features that are available only on EverWinter MU. We hope that EverWinter will be a good place to stay for a long time because it is uncommon and every aspect was carefully thought-through.
Why do we think our server is unique?
Custom Zen Drop - the amount of Zen that drops does not depend on the difference between the level of your character and the level of the mob you kill. The Zen drop is adjusted to the difficulty of the map you are on. For example, in Lorencia the amount of Zen you find will not be higher than 4,500 and it won't be lower than 4,000. In Devias it is 4,500 and 5,000, Tarkan between 6,000 and 7,000. The high level maps will give you between 9,000 and 10,000 Zen per mob.
Zen Hunt - you will be able to choose whether to focus on getting more experience and higher levels or fight for more Zen. For this we created a new map called ZenFarm on which new, unique mobs spawn every 60 minutes. Each one of these will give you between 25,000 and 30,000 Zen. They are not that difficult to kill because you should be able to handle them even on level 33 (their strength is comparable to the Giant in Lorencia). Their health level is increased but you can try taking them down at level 50 (level 33 for MG and DL).
Zen As The Actual Currency - we are aware that you have probably seen that before on some other servers and it didn't work like you though it would. After resetting your character you used to go back to the spot with a low level but the drop of Zen was significantly higher than before the reset. It is not something that you will see at EverWinter. The drop is static which guarantees that the disproportion of drop rates between characters before the reset and after is not an issue. Thanks to our ideas on how to spend your money, you will not say that you have too much Zen. You can invest your money in jewels that can be obtained from a shot or boxes that can give you something really nice if you are lucky (see more here: DROP: All Boxes in drop system - EverWinter MU).
Playing On The Active Server Pays Off - we have carefully configured the MuHelper. On the Active sub-server (PVP), the cost of the MuHelper is higher than the income you can gather manually during the time it is active. You will not gain anything with the MuHelper if you use it on the Active server. For players who like AFK we have created a separate sub-server - Passive (Non-PVP). There MuHelper is free on that one but the drop of zen on every map is equal to 1. It means that active player will not have to fight for good spots with AFK players. If you want to AFK, log in to the Passive sub-server and everyone's happy.
Doing Events Pays Off As Well - Every one hour at lease one event starts. We have increased the drop of Zen on BC, DS, IT and Kalima. On the majority of them the difference between the amount of Zen you get is up to 30% higher. By doing events you also gain more experience because mostly the exp. rate is increased by 10%. If you don't have an invitation and don't want to use your Chaos to get one, you can simply buy the Box of Tickets and find an invitation if you are lucky.
Chaos, The King - do you remember other servers where that magnificent jewel was worthless? Well it is not the case of EverWinter. You won't be able to find it in a shop and its drop rate is lowered. It is going to be valuable so do not waste it if you find one.
Every Item You Find Counts - you will not find better items in shops than the Leather set (and equivalents) or the Hand Axe. You won't find +9 items (not even +5) from the Heart of Love or the other boxes. All items are valuable. Every complete set +luck is precious. A high jewel drop rate and the fact that you can buy jewels in a shop results in items being as valuable as jewels. It is up to you whether to create the Leather set +luck as a sure thing by using your Blesses and Souls or save them to use them on the Bone +luck. Where the Sphinx set +luck with the +1 option is a good set? At EverWinter.
Improved Mining System - you will not buy the Pandora Pick from some NPC for 100,000 Zen. Having it will give you the opportunity to make a lot of money from the Mining System. The Pandora Pick can be found by dropping the Box of Pandora which is available in a shop for 20,000,000 Zen. The drop rate from it is 40% - will you be the lucky guy to get it? Unique Ranking System - it is not only based on the level, amount of resets or grand resets. We at EverWinter think that the best way to evaluate players is by summing up everything they do. Our unique ranking system available on our website will evaluate the amount of time spent online, statistics from various events, the amount of Zen and many more. If you are really the best player, you'll be in top 1. More variations of our ranking are coming.
Spots - do you remember the times when you had to gather mobs to build a spot? It will be back at EverWinter (but improved). There are no static spots where you will find many mobs in one place. Instead of that you get a double amount of mobs on all maps that you can find. Every mob respawns 12 distance units from the place it died. On average the distance a player sees is 10 or 11 units. It means that every mob you kill will respawn outside the area you see on your screen. It also means it is good to keep moving to get them.
What About The Zen Drop Benefit From Excellent Items - we though that through as well. The drop rate of such an item has been decreased by 10 times but that's not all. The Increased Zen option has been changed to +10% which means even if you have the entire set, you will get +50% (instead of +150%).
PK - no one likes unbalanced skirmishes. Gathering the PK count on low level maps is not nice for low level players. If you want to clear your PK level, you have to pay. However, we fully understand that it is also an important element of the game so we decided that there are no consequences of PK on the ZenFarm map. If you die, you'll respawn in the same place so gather your friends and try your skills in duels there.
To sum up, we have considered many more elements of the game but if you want to know more, feel free to contact us on our message board (EverWinter MU Online Message Board).
So we have the configuration above but what else makes EverWinter special?
One word - professional. Specifics below: - Bugless IGCN Premium PLUS licensed server files - Custom made web site - Dedicated server with a powerful processor, lots of physical memory and the 1 Gbps connection - DDoS protected - Administrators are experienced people who have been doing this for many years
Exp: *Dynamic, basic 27x *Every reset lowers the exp. rate by 1%*If you have more than 25 resets, the exp. rate lowers by 2% MasterExp: 13x Drop: 31% Reset: *Required level 400 *Paid 70.000.000 *Statistics are reset. You get 300 points per reset *Inventory stays *Master Level and the Master Skill tree are reset *Up to 50 resets Grand Reset.
Grand Reset: *Required level 400 and 50 resets *Paid 100kk * Statistics are reset. You get 1000 points. **You get 10.000 goblin points. *Up to 2 GRs ** Goblin Points can be exchanged for items that do not drop (i.e. AA Sword non-excellent +13+28+L+S that is SoulBound and you cannot sell it. or the Hell Night Armor +13+28+L+S). What's the advantage of being able to do only 2 grand resets? You cannot get a complete set just for doing GRs. You can get 2 but the rest will need to be found in the game.
