Dear players, I would like to announce and welcome you to Ascarus Season 2.

We learned a lot during Season 1 and hope to now apply this gathered knowledge and build on the foundation that Season 1 has laid down. In this release we're making some big changes to the gameplay of Ascarus, which are the following: Stat Templates, reduction of experience & skill rates, removal of castles, disablement of the Anti-AFK system & removal of Dicer NPC's.

Noteworthy Changes from Season 1
  • Added a stat template system, it allows players to temporarily assume the stats of a character with a specific level. The idea behind it is to create an equal playing field in the war arenas or certain events. This feature was highly requested during Season 1, we hope you enjoy it
  • Added a system that allows players to use temporary equipment pieces, it's an addition to the stat template system to level the playing field even further.


  • Castles have been removed - This should be more healthy for the game overall, as it does not allow uninterrupted hunting anymore
  • The Anti-AFK System has been disabled - One of the most frequent complaints we've heard during Season 1 was regarding the presence of the Anti-AFK System
  • Dicer NPC's have been removed - They were responsible for a masssive inflation of money in the game, especially during the start of Season 1. From now on, gambling will once again be on a player's own risk. In order to limit the amount of gambling going on, dice were added to the shop exclusively
  • The experience & skill rates have been lowered in order to go hand in hand with the removal of the Anti-AFK System and Castles. This should also contribute towards a longer season lifespan
  • Hellhounds, Undead Dragons & Infernalist spawns in the VIP area have been overhauled
  • Added an optimization to server saves, which should improve the player saving time a little
  • Added the summer dress as reward choice in the Defender quest
    • (Arm:17, distance fighting +3, protection physical +5%, fire +2%, life drain +5%, holy +5%, death +5%, speed +10). It can only be wielded properly by epic royal paladins of level 300 or higher. Bonus slots left: 2. It weighs 10.00 oz.
  • Introduced quivers as new addition to paladins
    • A quiver can be equipped in the arrow slot and holds ammunition such as arrows or bolts
    • Ammunition will only weigh half as much while it's placed in a quiver
    • You see a leather quiver (Vol:20). It weighs 20.00 oz. This leather quiver can hold a moderate amount of ammunition and only requires half as much capacity. It can be equipped in the arrow slot.
    • You see a mythril quiver (Vol:40). It weighs 8.00 oz. This light metal quiver can hold a substantial amount of ammunition and only requires half as much capacity. It can be equipped in the arrow slot.
  • Added the leather quiver as reward choice in the Ultimate Annihilator quest
  • Reduced the cost of the Epic promotion from 100 gold nuggets to 30 gold nuggets
