Server Information

Background

I started Volantis in September 2017 after my favourite server went offline. Losing my hard work was heart wrenching and I decided it was time to create a server for others to enjoy.

I welcome feedback on the server and will try and implement player suggestions so please feel free to raise a comment on the blog.

Now onto the details:

The Landscape and Resting Areas:

Volantis has a smooth terrain and rock can be found 40 digs below any surface.

The sandy coastlines make for a perfect harbour but beware of the scorpions!

Battle Arena:

The battle arena offers 5 levels, each of increasing difficulty, which summons waves of monsters for you to battle.

There are currently two arenas:

  1. Basic: (1) Wolf, (2) Cave Bug, (3) Large Rat, (4) Scorpion, (5) Bear.
  2. Intermediate: (1) Brown Bear, (2) Scorpion, (3) Crocodile, (4) Fire Fiend and (5) Troll.

To activate a battle, examine either the Basic or Intermediate level signs.

The Battle Arenas can be found in Kingslanding near the castle.

Please note – there is a 20minute cooldown period after completion of the Arena.

 

The Crypt of Vampires:

Ever fancied becoming a Vampire or Vampire Hunter? You will benefit from increased skill gains in exchange for the risk of being bitten / staked!

This is essentially PVP but without the risk of your buildings being destroyed (if built in the PVE zone).
