Server updateServer MaintenanceWritten by Erza,


Dear players,
We wish you a merry christmas and hope you get to spend some time with your loved ones during these festive days.
In order to celebrate the holiday season, we have prepared a small event for you to enjoy as well as the usual regular server updates.

Christmas Event
Oh no! Good old Santa has lost some of his christmas presents to the evil Grynch Clan Goblins, who are trying to ruin Christmas!
Catch them if you see them trying to raid any of the Ascarian cities and return the bags to Santa in exchange for a reward.
Furthermore, the goblins dropped some of the bags when they ran away, which were picked up by other wild monsters! Return these to Santa as well if you happen to find any of them.
The event will be running until 26th December 2020 23:59 CET.
In order to randomly drop bags from monsters, the monster needs to have at least 500 health.

Second Week's Guild EventEventsWritten by Erza,

Since Ascarus traditionally launches on Fridays and Guild Events happen on Saturdays, we have decided that instead of disabling it for the first week, like in previous seasons, we will allow the Guild Events to happen, but will be reducing the rewards in these first 2 weeks, in order to not create big gaps between competing guilds early on, and enjoy fun battles on lower levels.
We have now arrived at the second Guild Event, we hope you enjoyed last week's event.

The reward table for the second week will be the following:

  1. Guild Trophy, 1x Addon Doll, Mystery Gift, 5 Gold Nuggets, 2x Stamina Refiller, 100 Game Tokens
  2. Mystery Gift, 4 Gold Nuggets, Stamina Refiller, 80 Game Tokens
  3. Mystery Gift, 2 Gold Nuggets, Stamina Refiller, 70 Game Tokens
  4. Pair of Soft Boots, 1 Gold Nugget, 60 Game Tokens
  5. Pair of Soft Boots, 50 Crystal Coins, 50 Game Tokens

The reward table for week 3 and onwards will be normalized again, according to our events page.
