== Server type summary ==
 
== Server type summary ==
The following table summarizes the features of the player servers.
+
 
 +
=== 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 server]] exists to test large game updates before they are added to the main servers.
 +
 
 +
=== 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. [[Wurm staff|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.

== Server type details  ==
+
==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.
  
=== Golden Valley server ===
+
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.
  
Golden Valley is the log in server and was formerly the tutorial server. While a few player still maintain GV characters and deeds, players can no longer go to this server to play.  
+
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.
  
=== Freedom servers cluster 1 ===
+
The homelands are connected only to the Elevation server, not to each other.
  
The entire area of each server is automatically claimed as Freedom kingdom territory, so guard towers are not required to plant deeds.

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.
+
==Northern Freedom Isles==
 +
The Northern Freedom Isles are the newest servers, consisting of two PVE servers (Harmony and Melody) and one PVE 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.  
  
Later, Celebration [http://wurmonline.tumblr.com/post/24127944261/celebration-opened/ release note] was added to the south of Exodus.
+

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

Follows Freedom servers rule set (see above). This is 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.

The Jackal server is a seasonal server that refreshes with new challenges and closes to be be wiped and restarted after those challenges are met.

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.  
+
: <span id="Note_1"><sup>[1]</sup></span> Enemy kingdoms can still be on this server, but they cannot create towers or deeds.

Introduction

Wurm Online has the following types of servers that players can access:

  • Login/Tutorial (Also known as Golden Valley & Haven)-Golden Valley was the former tutorial server. Players pass through these when they log in a new character for the first time.
  • Northern Freedom Isles
    • PVE (Harmony, Melody)
    • PVP (Defiance)
  • Southern Freedom Isles
    • PvE (Independence, Deliverance, Exodus, Celebration, Pristine, Release and Xanadu)
    • PvP (Chaos, which used to be called Wild)
  • Epic PvP (Elevation, Desertion, Affliction, and Serenity)
  • Jackal PvE (Six month, resetting server with special goals for explorers)

Other servers

There is a test server which allows testing of new game content.

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.

Server travel map

You can sail across some server borders, depending on which cluster it belongs to. This will leave your skills and items intact. Animals cannot cross server borders unless by the means of creature cages.

NOTE: If you are traveling across server borders, make sure all passengers are logged into the ship prior to crossing the border. Players logged off when a ship crosses the border may be left at their last log-in position on the previous server.

The ingame world map shows the standard connections between servers on the Freedom cluster:

In addition, there is a new option allowing you to directly determine which server you will be travelling to when crossing a server border. To select your destination choose "Plot course" from the boat's context menu. You will see a window like this:

PlotCourse.jpg

You will arrive on the opposite side of the destination server, for example: if you leave the east coast of server A and sail eastward you will appear at the west coast of server B.


In order to travel between the Freedom cluster and the Epic cluster, you can use an Epic portal. Please read here what happens to your skills and items!

Northern Freedom Isles

You cannot sail or otherwise transport between the Northern Freedom Isles and the older servers. You may take a portal between Harmony and Defiance, but none of your items will transfer.

Server type summary

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 server exists to test large game updates before they are added to the main servers.

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 two PVE servers (Harmony and Melody) and one PVE 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.
