The new vision of Varlyndria is back in development.

Greetings everybody,

I have been developing a new Varlyndria server for well over 3 months now and it will be available to play in January of 2019.

OFFICIAL FEATURES ADDED TO THE SERVER SO FAR
• Level 50 cap because it fits well with this server, as well as a custom AA system. (more info below)
• All equipment of level 50+ has been changed to level 50 rec/req.

• No Bots or Mercenaries this time. They would defeat the purpose of the class pets I made.
• Custom NPCs added and some custom quests. This is a work in progress and more will be added as the server grows.

• There is an NPC that will fix stuck characters in New Sarith. He'll send every one of your toons to Plane of Knowledge. Very easy to use and works great.

• 2 boxing allowed but only 1 character online per account. Donation Tier 1+ allows max of 4 accounts per IP.
• Shared Bank is working fine because you can't be online with 2 characters of the same account.
• Very fair and user friendly donation tier system. NPCs handle pretty much everything account wide.

• No Class Path system this time. I have decided to go with a new vision with this server that offers even more fantasy without locking you up.
• Spells, Songs, and Discs, are now purchased from custom vendors.
• The old Spell, Song, and Disc vendors have been removed.
• Spells, Songs, and Discs, now cost far more platinum to purchase.
• Obtaining money will be important to progress your character.
• There are 16 spell categories now that can be purchased:
     - ARCANE
     - FIRE
     - WATER
     - EARTH
     - AIR
     - HOLY
     - SPIRIT
     - DARK
     - CHAOS
     - POISON
     - DISEASE
     - MUSIC
     - WAR
     - PETS
     - LDON
     - CRAFTING
• The new hub zone (Sarith, City of Tides) has a portal master that will get players to various main player-friendly locations.

• Custom locations that sell Spells, Songs, and Discs, are designed to toss you into the fantasy of that theme.

• All 16 Classes have a much larger variety of spells and abilities they can use now, but there are a lot of restrictions to keep class identity.
• All spells, songs, tomes, songs, etc, have been changed to No Trade. This is to prevent a huge amount of money abuse.
• A lot of changes to spells have been made and many new spells have been added to the game. You will immediately notice if you're an EQ veteran.
• Class Cards (Details on Affinity Levels) have been added to the forums. This is a level penalty system -- Higher numbers are bad. Low are good.

• Almost all abilities are now very fast casting but have longer cool downs. Bard songs have remained unchanged and they can twist.
• Bards can use Disciplines from level 1 now to give them some staying power as a fighter if they so choose to purchase them.
• Bards use Disciplines to summon pets now starting with their first pet at level 13.
• All classes can use pets and have various level penalties based on class.

• There are over 1200 custom pet spells (Including Ranks) distributed over the 16 classes.

• Players who prefer to go petless can get a strong affinity buff like fire, water, etc.. that procs a strong unresistable nuke.
• The nuke has a chance to go off when you fight in melee combat, fire/throw a ranged weapon, use a harmful discipline, or cast a harmful spell.
• All petless buffs (Lone Wolf) will destroy your pet with reclaim energy, and casting a pet will remove any Lone Wolf buff that you have on you.
• Players can progress through more difficult PEQ content solo/group with the Blessing of the Tides system.

• To gain ranks of this persist-after-death buff, players need to speak to the Keeper of the Tides in Sarith City.

• The Keeper of the Tides will provide you and your pet 1 rank of Blessing of the Tides for every 50 TOTAL STATS you gain passed 600.
• Stats or Ability Scores are: STR, DEX, AGI, STA, INT, WIS, CHA  (The 7 main stats)
• AGI and Heroic AGI have been nerfed in their evasion and dodge. Points of AGI still count for Blessing of the Tides so it's always useful.
• Custom AA system that uses AAs from Serpents Spine down.  All of the character sheets look very good with no buggy "unknown" AA's or any of that.

• Players can get AA points at level 1 and up by killing creatures. The chance to gain a point is 1% per level per kill. This works in groups and solo.
• Dria, the Wise will raise your 7 main ability scores even further for AA points, so your blessing of tides buff gets stronger and stronger.



Varlyndria could be out in its early stages by the end of the week.

Thank you very much. Smile My life has been pretty damn sporadic and annoying the last couple of years. Hopefully a lot of that will chill and I can focus on fun stuff and server development.

I have awesome stuff coming. Smile If only the login servers would work and not mess the server up we would be good.

Good to be back my friend. Varlyndria will be back up later today depending if EQemu gets things fixed on their side.
