Allods Online currently has two skirmishes, small battles where a group of players engage in instanced PvP combat. A new skirmish is being added to the lineup, but this time groups of twelve players must work together to take down a thundering mechanical giant. The kicker that makes this skirmish unique is that players must take down the boss in vehicle-based combat!
There are four types of combat vehicles that players can choose from, each with their own unique roles. For example, IS-7 Heavy is a slow and steady vehicle that can disable the targeting, firing, and mobility of the enemy boss while Type 59 ST is a tita
Greetings! I’m PioPico, a community manager for Allods Online, and I’m the one that creates these cool blog entries for your viewing pleasure. Past blog entries we have shared with you have revolved around going in depth on new in-game features. I wanted to add some variety to this week’s blog entry by providing you with something more personal and light-hearted. I’m going to share what a typical day is like for your Allods community manager. Also throughout this blog I’ll share some fun pictures taken from past events I’ve done with the Allods community.
A player challenged me to listen to a Pikachu song loop for 10 hours on YouTube. I completed the challenge and in the end, I did not receive the hand-drawn picture of Pikachu in a tuxedo that I was promised. However, I did experience bleeding ears and a cool story that I could share.
I start off my morning by checking emails from my fellow Allods teammates – Condulus and Shockpix – for any important announcements or tasks they need m...
Today we are going to delve into a common feature you may come across in MMORPGs known as player housing, but within Allods Online. Player housing contains similar functions but common elements tend to focus around giving the user a personalized space to hang out and acquire territory within the large virtual world where our characters exist.
The concept of player housing has evolved in Allods over time as we continue to receive constant content updates from the developers. Last September we introduced Astral Ship customization. Anyone who is familiar with Allods will know Astral ship combat and exploration is a unique feature that distinguishes the game from other MMORPGs.
With Astral ship customization, players were given the option to customize practically every corner of their ship including objects such as rugs, lights, counters, ceiling fixtures and more! This made trips to the Astral with your party more entertaining by riding in comfort and style that fit your personal desir...
Over the past few months you have seen new additions to Allods Online such as new zones, new Allods to explore, a new Raid – Dead City, the Bard class was introduced, looter pets, and more. The game and the community continue to grow and will continue to do so. There is a lot to look forward to. And continuing that trend, we would like to officially announce that the next major update (3.0.4) will be coming soon! Here is a preview of some new features to come as well as details about the opening of the new Allods Online server – Avilon!
• Mentor Changes •
Apprentices are now shared between a Progenitor and it’s Incarnations, meaning that a Mentor can only have a maximum of 10 Apprentices per character slot. If a player has accumulated more than 10 Apprentices betwee
As the Allods community anxiously waits for the server merge coming this Thursday, June 7th, I wanted to talk more about the server merge from my viewpoint as a Community Manager for Allods Online.
Allow me to introduce myself! My name is PioPico and I have been part of the Allods community since Open Beta. Reaching out to the community, whether it is planning events, social networking, or resolving customer support issues, have all been my main responsibilities to help foster a positive community. I am personally ecstatic for the upcoming server merge and I am going to elaborate why I am looking forward to it.
Let’s Start with the Facts!
The technology behind Allods Online has improved and now allows us to host our entire community on one server. Our two servers, Tensess and Nezeb, will
The next update for Allods Online: Game of Gods is fast approaching on May 30! There are a vast number of features to make the community’s experience that much more convenient – and intense. We will review how the changes impact the game and we’ll also give you an exclusive preview of what else is coming!
Allods Online continues to improve questing convenience so players spend less time trying to figure out what to do and more time enjoying content and progression. Patch 3.0.2 makes this even better with two key features – Quest Finder and Automove.
It’s no secret that zones spread throughout the game are massive. Players are encouraged to explore all zones to acquire quests from NPCs or scattered objects. However, it’s understandable if players miss a section of a zon
One of the most beneficial features with Patch 3.0, Overture of the Damned, on February 14th has been the Currency Exchange system. This feature allows players to convert their in-game gold currency into Gem Shards (currency used to purchase items from the Item Shop). Likewise, players also have the option to convert Gem Shards into in-game gold. This is a revolutionary system that you won’t find in most Free-to-Play MMORPGs!
How does the Currency Exchange system positively impact Allods Online and the community?
Item Not on the Auction House? Not a Problem!
Before the Currency Exchange system was implemented, players relied on the Auction House to purchase Item Shop items with in-game gold. There is the possible situation that the item you seek may not be available on the Auction House. F
Allods Online has come a long way to the current state of the game now with Patch 3.0, Overture of the Damned, with improvement of in-game features to increase the community’s overall enjoyment. One feature we wanted to highlight is PvP!
Allods Online revolves around conflicts between two warring factions, Empire and League, so PvP is an essential part of every player’s experience. With PvP, comes the possible conflict of interest since everyone does not share the same level of enthusiasm for competition, penalties, and rewards that comes with killing and being killed by other players.
To better understand how Allods Online’s PvP has improved, we need to take a step back in time to understand what issues existed in the past.
To Gank, or Not to Gank, That is the Temptation!
Some early feedback from Allods Online’s open beta days was the amount of ganking that occurred in one of the leveling zones known as Asee-Teph. Players were able to level without any PvP engagement up until level 23 si...
With Patch 3.0, Overture of the Damned, coming out this week, there are a lot of exciting features to look forward to. We wanted to take a moment to share the new features and how they will positively impact Allods Online’s currently gameplay.
New Class – Bard!
The bard is the newest archetype being added to Allods Online’s existing lineup of playable characters. This support class brings with it a diverse arsenal of AoE attacks, healing spells and crowd control abilities.
What this also means is other archetypes will need to adjust and re-strategize their play style to accommodate Bard’s harmonious and influential ways in PvE and PvP scenarios.
One of the most exciting features being introduced is Currency Exchange! There will be an NPC located in each faction’s capital that will allow you to convert gold into Gem Shards or vice versa.
Before going into further details, we wanted to provide you with a quick history review regarding Gem Shards. Gem Shards are an alternate...
