Pinned Ascarus Season 4 AnnouncementServerWritten by Erza,




Dear players, I would like to announce and welcome you to Ascarus Season 4. A season change, which has been in the making for quite a while. Season 3 ran from December to September, which was our longest season yet. For Season 4 we've put a focus on remaking a couple of the server's core systems from the ground up, such as the enchanting system and our item market. The experience system has received a little overhaul as well. But as always, server content has received updates as well, to name 1 quick example: The overhaul of the Ascendant Boots quest - The quest has been replaced entirely with a new quest line called "Wrath of the Seven", which is based on the style of The Inquisition Quest. Progression through 7 seals of the Ruthless Seven awaits you. Furthermore, as usual, there have been countless massive changes to the server's internal systems, which allows us much more freedom with the content we can create in the future. Last but not least, for this season we've made adjustments to how gift point refunds are handled.


Ascarus Season 4 will start on Friday, 24th September 2021 18:00 CET
