Traveling between Servers

For information on traveling between servers, see server travel.

Golden Valley/Haven servers

Golden Valley is the login server and was formerly the tutorial server. While a few players still maintain GV characters and deeds, players can no longer go to this server to play. Haven is the new location of the tutorial.

Test server

The test servers exist to test large game updates before they are added to the main servers. They are wiped often.

Valrei

Valrei, a moon of Wurm, has a special server on which battles between the gods take place. We mere-mortals can not visit the moon with our avatars, but we can follow these events remotely via a twitter feed and maps. Avatars on the Epic servers can assist their god by completing missions, and can potentially be rewarded for their efforts. See Scenarios for more information.

Southern Freedom Islands, formerly Freedom servers cluster 1, 2, 3

The entire area of each server is automatically claimed as Freedom kingdom territory, so guard towers are not required to plant deeds. Griefing is frowned upon, and is a potentially bannable offense. GMs will police these servers as needed, but ideally the game rules should take care of things automatically. Moderators police the kingdom chat channels to ensure the chat rules are followed.

The original Freedom server was Independence. The second one was Deliverance, which is situated to the south of Independence. This was followed by Exodus, to the south of Deliverance. The old Wild server became the fourth server to join Freedom. It is now known as the Chaos server and can be accessed by sailing across the west border of any of the three servers above. However, sailing back east across the border from Chaos will only take you to Deliverance. Later, Celebration was added to the south of Exodus.

All of the freedom clusters were connected when Xanadu was opened to the east of this cluster.

Freedom servers cluster 2

This was a new cluster starting with Pristine at the official release of Wurm Online 1.0 which wasn't connected to freedom cluster 1 for one and a half years in order to provide that total newbie feeling. The second server in this cluster was Release, which is situated to the southern border of Pristine. Sailing west from either of these servers leads you to Xanadu.

Freedom servers cluster 3

The new Freedom server of Xanadu was isolated from the other servers for a few weeks. After that, it was connected to freedom cluster 1 to the west and freedom cluster 2 to the east. Sailing west from Xanadu leads you to Deliverance and sailing east from Xanadu leads you to Release.

Chaos server

The Chaos server is a PvP enabled Freedom cluster server. It can be access by sailing west from Independence, Deliverance, or Exodus. Upon arriving here you are automatically in the Freedom Isles kingdom and can join other Player Made Kingdoms. Sailing back east to Deliverance will put you back in the Freedom Isles kingdom, while returning to Chaos will put you back to whatever kingdom you were in when you left. Full PvP is enabled here between the Freedom Isles and Player Made Kingdoms. You can fully raid deeds, pick locks, and bash things on deed. GMs generally avoid intervening in PvP server affairs. However, excessive griefing and other violations of the game rules will be punished as appropriate.

Epic Islands

The Epic islands are made up of 4 different islands, arranged in a T-shaped pattern. These are all PVP servers. The Epic cluster is affected by The Curve, a skill gain formula that can allow new players to catch up to older players.

The central island is named Elevation and is the crossroads where the different kingdoms meet and engage in warfare with each other. Elevation is a premium-only server. Elevation can have player made kingdoms founded on it.

The southern island has been named Affliction and can be reached by traveling south from Elevation. Affliction is the homeland of the Horde of the Summoned Kingdom and is a mixed server, allowing both premium and non-premium players. The western island has been named Desertion and can be reached by traveling west from Elevation. Desertion is the homeland of Mol-Rehan and is a mixed server, allowing both premium and non-premium players. The eastern island has been named Serenity and can be reached by traveling east from Elevation. Serenity is the homeland of Jenn-Kellon and is a mixed server, allowing both premium and non-premium players.

The homelands are connected only to the Elevation server, not to each other.

Northern Freedom Isles

The Northern Freedom Isles are the newest servers, consisting of three PVE servers (Harmony, Melody, and Cadence) and one PVP server (Defiance). These servers are currently cut off from all other servers in Wurm to allow for new players to grow and skill together. Normal Freedom/PVE rules apply on the PVE servers, but Defiance has its own PVP rule set.
