Easter is getting closer!
9 April 2020
Following popular demand and our most recent Poll we have decided to implement the vocation EXP team hunt boosts. For each different vocation that is in your party (1 of each vocation) you will receive a 5% boost. Just as our players have stated, we also agree this is a great decision to make and hope you will enjoy the continuing updates on perfecting the balance of all vocations. These changes will take affect from tomorrow’s server save 09/04/2020!

Small Bug Fix
There was a small bug with walking diagonally and using for example mana or UH at the same time as stepping. This bug has now been fixed and take affect from today's server save 08/04/2020.

Easter Event!
We are getting close to Easter and we would like to present the first event we have been working on for you – we have some exciting details!



From Saturday 11/04/2020 you will begin to see a countdown to join the Easter Event. All players will have a chance to join and will be teleported to the Easter Arena which is NON-PVP. On this map, it’s every man for himself (all vs all) with prizes for the winners and also for everyone taking part! Your objective is to shoot your fellow players with Easter Eggs using a spell called exevo pascha. The spell will shoot the Easter Egg from your character just like a Master Sorcerer shoots exevo gran vis lux, smashing into the first player in its path! (not multiple targets). The Easter Eggs can be shot the full length of your screen – so if someone is aiming at you, make sure you’re not in the firing line! If you get hit by an Easter Egg your character will be teleported to a new random spawning position on the Event arena.



So how long will this event last and what are the prizes?

The Event will run from Saturdays server save 11/04/2020 until Tuesday 14/04/2020 server save and will be launched every 4 hours during daytime hours. The top 3 players who land the most completed shots will receive 50 premium points with every other player taking part receiving a 5% EXP boost for 2 hours! Don’t worry; the top 3 players will also receive this boost along with their points.

We hope you are enjoying all our updates and events just as much as we do making them, we have plenty more under construction. We will continue to listen to player feedback along with making the right decisions for all players as we continue to see a very exciting future. We would like to thank all of our players for choosing Askara

Breaking news!
3 April 2020
New Polls!
As always we are reacting to your most current feedback and perfecting Askara. Our latest hot topic has been regarding ‘noob chars’ during warmode battles and pvp situations. As I’m sure you all know, there is no system that can magically fix this issue as it’s very much a part of the game! However we have come up with some very interesting ideas on how we can combat this without breaking the game play.

Please check our latest polls here https://askara.net/polling/list to make your votes on what you think should happen. We will not take direct action against this poll, but we will strongly consider all votes if we decide to make a change.

Defences!
We are very proud of the map and the kind words our players have sent us. After days and hours of carefully selecting each location, from tomorrow server save you will find a few more defences. This is in response to the feedback from our players – we also strongly agree.

Easter Event!
With Easter fast approaching we have been working on an event that everyone can enjoy. During the easter holidays you will be able to loot different coloured eggs from all monsters during your hunting trips - As you collect these you will then be able to claim a reward! This is just a small preview of whats to come with this event, we will tell you much more news on this in the coming days!

Today’s updates bring some amazing news, a brand new outfit and the popular decision to increase the loot rate.

As of today you will see our exclusive new outfit available in the store, the Golden Outfit. This legendary outfit is massively popular among all types of players and will certainly add a great look to your character.

We have also taken the time to update the look of our premium scrolls to stop scammers taking peoples hard earned cash, you will see this next time you purchase a premium tune from the shop.

Another extremely hot topic has been the loot rate. Following days of discussion and listening to all of the feedback from our community we have decided to increase the loot rate by just 30%. This has given a much better balance to the chances of making cash but retaining the importance of being lower rate and long term. The decision to do this has not been taken lightly as any changes must keep the gameplay as perfect as it can be.

We are very pleased with the response as Askara’s population continues to grow. We love to hear your thoughts on the server so please keep the forum posts and questions coming.

As you can see, our map is growing and growing along with constant updates to meet players expectations. We are currently working on optimizing the client to maximise the smoothness of the gameplay following much appreciated feedback. You will also now find 2 new money tasks from Grizzly Adams - Behemoths and Nightmares!

One more exciting update as planned with our opening news for Askara, we are getting closer to hosting our Brazil/American server. The launch of this is very important to everyone as we build solid foundations for long term game play and the future of Askara. More on this as it develops!

Voting has end, frag time has been decreased to 24 hours and red skull time has been aswell decreased to 3 days.

Also, we have removed a system that was creating a yellow skull for a player who used magic wall around war mode's people.

Today we have created a Poll regarding the current frag system. Our team understand that our player’s feedback is most important so we decided to create a poll to consider adjusting the current system. To register your vote simply login and click the poll link at the top of the homepage.

With our population increasing day by day we have also now added around 20 new houses to the town of Ramahos. As we continue to expand this amazing project, we will give you regular updates on what’s new and what is coming soon!

Revenge System
By tomorrow server save this will be updated so when you kill a player and he return to attack you again he will take yellow skull.

Dungeons Reminder!
As you know our servers have the amazing dungeons feature. Just as a reminder, below is everything you need to know about them and the advantage of doing them as a daily task!
This amazing feature currently has 3 levels of difficulty; you’ll be able to choose from:

Easy – minimum level: 40
Medium – minimum level: 70
Hard – minimum level: 120

To enter Dungeons (dungeons are being in NON-PVP zone, so you can be sure that no one will surprise you while doing it) you can find NPC Jinx located south west of Askara town and speak with him. You have to be in party that counts 4 members (vocations doesn't matter). Once you have entered the Dungeons you must be quick, as you only have 30 minutes to complete it. If you exceed 30 minutes, you will be kicked out to temple. You must kill 150 monsters for that particular Dungeon and at the end, kill the BOSS that will spawn on last killed monster position.

After boss is killed you will be teleported to the reward room in which you can claim your prize which stays as secret for you.

Notice: As the clocks change, our server save tomorrow will be at 08:00 for one time.

Successfull launch!
24 March 2020
We would like to thank all players who have joined us here on Askara. This unique server had an amazing launch of over 1000 players and we have hugely enjoyed seeing the start of everyone’s journey in this long term project.



Since the very beginning we have managed to respond to 100’s of reports, suggestions and received incredible feedback from players. Your thoughts are extremely important to us as we navigate through the opening stages of the server. The team has worked around the clock to ensure our response time has been fast.

For all current and new players just joining don’t forget to spend some time on our website as you have extremely useful links such as our YouTube Channel, map preview, Wikipedia, quest tutorials and much more.

We look forward to keeping you updated and welcome you to Askara!

Askara - light of day for the first time!
13 March 2020
The planned start of the server will take place on March 23rd at 18:00 (CEST) and will be hosted in Europe. If the interest is high, and everything works as expected we will of course in the future also be looking to openning one for U.S and Brazilian players!

Askara's vision and goal is to provide stable 8.0 server with custom map. Right now, there are a lot of servers, yet noone of them seem to meet the players' expectations of what game server really sould offer. People seem to play on these kinds of servers simply because there are no better current alternatives.

We decided that it would be a good idea to collaborate with a handful of experienced players. Collaboration, in the sense that we would receive feedback and work on addressing these points for a long period of time. You could thus say that this is a server made by the players themselves.

In terms of features, we will of course provide you most accurate 8.0 game mechanisms and formulas that has been taken place on your beloved Kasteria server, but with refreshed style, which means - totaly custom map, that you never seen before.

We understand that not everyone is an explorer and roleplayer, so we decided to share an overview of the entire server map with you, in order for you to become familiarized with the map and plan your journey before the server launch.
