NGD servers[edit | edit source]
There are two servers provided by the game development company NGD. They are operated, and their community is handled, by NGD, though the hardware itself is located in Sweden. Creating an account from the official website allows a player to create characters on both these servers, and the player can belong to a different Realm on each server.
Ra (International)[edit | edit source]
Ra is the game's oldest and main server, and is mainly populated by players from Argentina (where the developers are based) and other Spanish-speaking countries. However English-speaking players and clans do exist (see list from the official forum), and this server is where most veteran players play. The server is by far the most active, though this also has problems. Large battles between many players require a powerful computer for an acceptable frame rate and ping times can go very high, particularly during invasions.
Valhalla (German)[edit | edit source]
Since April 2018 Valhalla is under supervision of NGD staff. Valhalla closed on May 21, 2021
Gamigo servers[edit | edit source]
These servers and their community were decided by the German company Gamigo and are only available with a Gamigo account. Patches for this server are usually listed a few weeks after the international patches that have to be put in German.
There were three Gamigo servers. Two German servers named Niflheim and Muspell and a French server named Nemon. These servers will also have active GMs that do not exist on the international servers. Now there are more rules here with stronger choices, and the GMs are amazing on some people.
Both German servers were merged in "Valhalla" around April 2012.
In 2015 the server Nemon was closed and the remainig players were transfered to Ra.
In April 2018, NGD took over the management for the german community and gamigo is no longer responsible as the german publisher.
BoaCompra server[edit | edit source]
Announced in July 2011, the Piranha server is primarily aimed at portuguese speaking players. The server is being run by BoahCompra. Only players from Portugal and Brazil will be able to access this server. Piranha was launched in August 2011. Due to low activity, the server has been merged with another one.
United Games server[edit | edit source]
Launched in June 2009 in partnership with United Games, the server Tyr was a Dutch server for players coming from the Netherlands and Belgium. However, after about 6 months, in January 2010 it was announced that the server would be merged with Horus, following a termination of the partnership between NGD and United Games due to low server population. The players from Tyr were moved to Horus, and the (tyr) suffix was added to their character names to avoid nickname collisions.
Experimental server[edit | edit source]
The game has one public testing server, Amun. Its purpose is to test new features, fixes and overall polish. Upcoming patches will often be placed onto this server before being deployed to the main servers. The character database for this server is intermittently copied from the Ra server, and so the characters on this server can be erased without notice. The wipe frequency depends entirely on specific needs, sometimes it happens after a few months, sometimes it happens after a week.
The server has a few features to help in testing, there is a "global" chat channel for inter-realm communication, the
/reset_powers command only takes 3 s econds instead of the usual 60, and there is an additional
/train command that lets players modify their setup from anywhere, rather than just at a Trainer.
However the availability of this server is not guaranteed, and sometimes it is only open to a select group of testers.
On this server, Ximerin gets decreased from a character's inventory but it doesn't get saved onto the database. Ximerin is only actually spent on the live servers. While Ximerin on this server doesn't get deducted from the players account, the minimum amount to buy the desired items is still required. This gives players an ability to test Premium Items before actually spending the Ximerin for real.
