You can have a maxium Stregth, Dexterity and Intelligence total of 335.


Imbuing

Also known as Enchanting, Imbuing is the art of modifying your equipment's fundamental properties in order to improve your chances of survival in the world.

We took that concept, along with the original functionality from Ultima Online® and expanded on its' role in the world.

Runes

You can craft Imbuing Runes for most of the available properties on any piece of equipment.
Each Imbuing Rune has a rating, which changes depending on the intensity of the property the Imbuing Rune holds.

Imbuing Runes store the property information for later use, allowing you to sell or trade them.

When applying a rune to a piece of equipment, the property can be added or upgraded.
In order to remove properties from equipment, you must use the Unravelling craft to craft unravelling runes.

Rating

As you imbue your equipment, your equipment rating will increase.
Your items' Rating is the sum of all of the items' property Ratings.
Your overall Equipment Rating is the sum of all of your currently equipped items' Ratings.

Your Equipment Rating directly reflets the power of your equipment and can be used to gauge how you will fair in a battle against an opponent.

Resources

There is a large variety of resources available for the different Imbuing Runes.

Almost all of the resources can be obtained as loot from creatures and is guaranteed in loot from most Champion and Peerless bosses.
Resources can also be recovered when using Unravelling Runes to remove properties from items.

Item Tiers

Your equipment has a Tier score, the Tier is like a level in a level system.
You gain Tier Experience by slaying creatures in the world and when you reach the required Tier Experience goal, your equipment gains a Tier.

Every time your equipment gains a Tier, it will also improve the affects of the Imbuing craft by giving you more Imbuing Rune Slots, etc.

Item Ranks

All equipment is assigned a special Rank based on various factors, including the Rating assigned by Imbuing.

These Ranks represent power and change the color of the items' name to reflect it.

Ranks
  1. Artefact
  2. Legendary
  3. Epic
  4. Rare
  5. Uncommon
  6. Common

Vehicles

We have a unique vehicles feature that offers multiple modes of transport for you and your friends.

All available vehicles move smoothly in transit, that is of course, unless they're destroyed by an attack!
Some vehicles travel on water, some travel on land and some even fly!

Water

Set sail on the boats and galleons and take to the water for an adventure on the High Seas®.

There are a wide range of boats available, from the tiny row-boat to the large galleons.

Land

If you're feeling sea-sick, you can always take to the roads and countryside in an all-terrain vehicle.

Air

Hit a bump in the road and need to get off the ground?
Catch a ride in a flying vehicle to get you where you need to be!

Moongates

The classic Moongates of Ultima Online® have been replaced with our own instant transmission service.

The travel menu is categorized and offers a large selection of destinations to explore!

Rune Codex

The Rune Codex allows you to add an impossible amount of marked destinations to one book, sorting them by category.

You can currently store up to 10,000 different destinations in the Rune Codex, which functions a lot like a Rune Book.
It uses a unique, intuitive interface to help you manage the display information for each location.


Battlegrounds

Whether you're looking for casual or intense Player vs Player action, our friendly battle service will deliver.

If you don't feel like participating, each battle has a spectator area that allows any one to look on as the battle takes place.

Our PvP battle service provides multiple scenarios with different goals, tactics and themes.

These battles allow you to queue up with other players in multiple teams.

There is no death in these battles, which means you can participate without worrying about being looted!
Preventing death also allows us to get you straight back in to the action after a short respawn delay.
It also allows you to take anything in to the battle, we don't strip you of your equipment or hand out special armor and weapons to make things even.

We believe that artifically altering the abilities and power of players in order to even the playing field is unfair, no one should be punished for spending time working for their top-tier equipment.
By managing your own equipment in these battles, you will always have a goal to improve your equipment and skills to match your opponents.

You can participate in the action by using the [Battles command.

Season Ranks

There is a global leaderboard govorned by periods of time called seasons.

The duration of a season is usually 4 weeks (28 days) and at the end, rewards are given to the highest ranking participants on the leaderboard.
There are also rewards for runner-up ranks.

Statistics

Whenever you participate in ranked battles, your statistics are tracked in your PvP profile, everything from wins and losses, deaths and resurrections, to damage done, healing received and points gained or lost.

Your PvP battle profile represents your rank on the global leader-board and can earn you special rewards at the end of each season.

Scenarios

Currently, there are 3 main battle scenarios, but there are many adaptions of them implemented in the battle service.

Free For All

The Free For All (FFA) offers participants a no-holds-barred battle to the end, where the last participant left alive is declared the winner.

In some scenarios, the last two participants may trigger sudden-death mode, which will bombard the battle arena with devastating weather effects, dealing enough damage to turn up the heat!

Team Vs Team

Team Vs Team (TvT) battle scenarios can range from 1v1 duels, 2v2 skirmishes and even 10v10v10!
In fact, there are so many possible combinations that can be done with a TvT scenario, that we will never run out of potential combinations.
We can assign up to 2.4 billion separate teams to any battle and each team can have a different maximum capacity, meaning even handicap battles are possible.
Teams can also be allied, meaning they have to work together to achieve an end goal.

The winner of a TvT is usually decided by the last team left alive, though there are many other ways to decide the outcome.

Capture The Flag

Capture The flag (CTF) is a special variant of the TvT scenario in which multiple teams compete to, you guessed it, capture a flag.

CTF battles can often be intense, they require focus and special tactics, you have to think outside the box.

The winner of a CTF is usually decided by the team that reaches the maximum capture goal set out by the battle.

Tournaments

There is a ranked PvP tournament every hour.

The tournament features a last-man-standing scenario with tournament-style staged elimination.

To join the tournament, simply use the [DailyPvP comand when the tornament is announced in global chat.

Duels

You can challenge other players at any time in a specially-designed duelling area.

All you have to do is first ask them if they'd like to duel, then initiate the duel by using the [Duel command.


Dungeons

We offer fully-spawned, challenging dungeon scenarios suitable for all play-styles.

World

You will find many dungeons throughout the world of Pandora.
From the feeble advances of shuffling Zombies, up to the hoards of the Abyssal Legion, many challenges await in those dark caves.

Champions

If the world dungeons don't satify your lust for a challenge, try taking on one of the world Champions!

You will need to prepare to prove yourself worthy before a champion will show itself and fight you, this usually means having to fend off hoards of their minions, good luck!

Peerless

Peerless bosses have no equal, they are unique and very dangerous.

Offering great rewards, heroes often find themseves locked in combat with a creature so dangerous, it could be the end if they make one wrong move!
Group therapy is strongly recommended.

Elites

There are elites roaming the world, creatures of extraordinary powers in comparison to their counter-parts.

Elites offer better loot in general, but are quite hard to find.

Bosses

Sometimes even evil bosses like to take a vacation, it just so happens that in Pandora, their vacation consists of leaving their dungeon to destroy the world!

Upon the rare chance that you encounter a world boss, you'd better be prepared to fight or flight, because things could get ugly.


Houses

We offer a wide range of standard, unique and customizable houses, each with unique features.

You can place up to 10 houses per account.

Categories

All houses can be assigned to a special category by the house owner once every 7 days.

Each available category; Residential, Industrial, Commercial and Military offer different benefits.

Residential properties are the practical choice for any casual player, offering a wider variety of bonuses at a reduced amount.

Industrial properties are best suited to crafters, offering a decent storage bonus and a bonus to all crafting skills.

Commercial properties are perfect for the budding sales-person up to the multi-million-gold merchant, offering a large storage bonus and significantly reduced vendor cost.

Military properties are ideal for setting up an offensive or defensive position, offering a bonus to all combat skills, stats and resistances.

Painting

Yes, you can paint your house. Yes, the entire structure all at once, including the wall and floors!

Painting your house is easy, all you need is a Tub of House Paint and a house.

The Tubs of House Paint can be found in many places in the world, you may find them in the loot of some creatures too.
The Tubs of House Paint are also available from certain vendors, or can be traded with other players.

The tubs can be used any number of times, they never run out.
To paint your house, you can either double-click the Tub of House Paint and target the house sign, or you can place it on the floor inside your house and use the Paint House option in the house sign menu.

Auction

You can sell your house directly from the house sign menu at any price you wish.

When you put your house up for sale, you can make it available on the global housing market for others to buy.
They can also purchase your house directly by accessing the house sign.

When your house is sold, the ownership is transferred to the buyer and you will receive the payment in your bank box automatically.

Decay

House decay is a slow process in our world, when you refresh your house, you have 30 days before it begins standard decay.

If you do not refresh your house within 30 days, you will have another 7 days of standard decay to rescue it from being in danger of collapsing.

Standard

Standard houses are typically the cheaper option, they come pre-built and offer moderate storage space.
Category changes and house painting are allowed.
The "dark" version of these houses can not be painted.

Unique

Unique houses are structures that would not normally be available as houses, things like boats and the Minax Fortress.
Category changes and house painting are allowed.

Custom

Category changes are allowed, house painting is currently not available for custom houses.

Decorations

There are literally hundreds of different decoration items available in the world.

They can be obtained from creature loot, vendors or special events and occasions.

As new artwork becomes available, we will implement it in a variety of ways, most often in the form of new decoration collectables.

Plants

You can cultivate plants in your house.
Starting with a seed and a bowl of dirt, nurture your seedling into a fully grown plant for decoration or harvesting purposes.

Some plants offer special benefits when harvested!
