It's been quite some time that I've actually posted on those forums!
I hope you're all doing well, I btw am your web developer that develops and maintains the website.
Today lots of maintenance has been done to the web server, lots of things you guys won't really notice, but some that you might.
* The servers were all updated, they had not been updated for a really long time, this caused the website to be offline for 30 minutes a few hours ago. It took that long, because there were a lot of updates that had to be done. Luckily it came back online and I could finish the updates.
* Old php versions were replaced by the new ones that are also officially supported (probably not something you'll notice, other than the website working as it should)
* Some small tweaks on the homepage that you might've noticed, new logo was added, also some snow was added to get into the christmas fibes and a lot of small other changes I gathered from the staff.
Everything should be working as it should, if it doesn't please let me know on discord by tagging me @jordy I'll try to resolve them as quickly as possible for you!
Next week I'll do some minor tweaks to the forums and possibly more bigger updates coming soon, I'm still discussing with Pb what we're exactly going to be doing.
Thanks for reading and I'll talk to you guys soon! Oh and ofcourse sorry for the disruptance if you've encountered any.
Slightly unofficial update notes. This post will mainly server as a guide for the hween event.
The event starts in Catherby, you must board the south most ship at the docks. You will need Melee, Range and Mage to complete this event along with a special attack weapon. For a full guide join ::discord and go to #Bot_channel.
Along with the event, In-game staff will be spawning Vampyres which drop Soul Fragments and a boss (Nazastrarool) which requires multiple players for it to be kill. Nazastrarool will drop many hween related items
Vampyres require you to have a stake and hammer (got from the monk west of ::home) in your inventory before you can kill them!
Soul fragments can be used to buy items from the Grim Reaper, north east of the GE , see his shop here:
There are new items in the 'event' tab at the vote store
There are also 2 new sets available from the premium store:
Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout my staffing career it has been some of the best time of my life while I've been here. I cannot thank Etherum as a game enough with helping me through hard times. Etherum as a community is the best I've ever experienced and I'm sure I can never find it anywhere else.
The reason I’m resigning is because I’ve been distant to the game for a while now and the game started more to feel like a job than a game. I’ve been staff on here since 11th of September 2016 which is over 3 years of staffing. And it has honestly been very enjoyable.
Shoutout to all the previous and the now standing staff & all the other teams. You guys are what makes the game enjoyable. You all know who you are.
I will hopefully still be running the discord server since thats something I’ve worked very hard on from the beginning when it had 0 people in it.
