Somewhat of a free-to-play version of World of Warcraft, Allods Online manages to keep itself alive among newer MMORPG's.
Launched way back on May 11, 2011, it kept getting updated so, in terms of content, there is plenty. It has many traditional MMORPG elements such as quests, NPCs, dungeons and so on. But it also offers quite a lot of short-cuts in its cash shop, making it somewhat pay-to-win. Don't get me wrong, you can accomplish plenty of things without paying a dime, but it will take a long, long grind to do so. The P2W aspect is firmly integrated into the game, so for the best possible experience, while playing, you're going to have to invest some money.
Besides that, Allods does have some fairly interesting segments like the ability to build ships and sail around in a massive mContinue Reading

It recently came to me an Allods Online player, asking me to promote or have interest on the subscription server. I'm not playing Allods anymore but it made me curious... what's going on?
One year ago (around Oct 2013), Allods Online launched a Subscription Server called Smuggler's Paradise. The main idea was great, having a Pay-to-Play server to remove all Pay-to-Win aspects which many players hate, and avoid an unbalance gameplay. Right now you have the choice:
- Pay a subscription and have a fair game; all gamers will have the same opportunities.
- Play on the free server and face the typical aspects of an item mall full of pay-to-win sales.
At the end, it's up to you!
As a concept, it should be a success, but today, after having a look at the forums, it'sContinue Reading

I have been playing MMORPGS for some time. Perhaps you have as well, or you are new in the MMORPG community. Either way, you have or you will run into the social aspect of this interesting world. One encounter you may come across is the Game Master interaction. I have had some interesting encounters and here is my article on some good, and bad, interactions.
It started in World of Warcraft (Vanilla and WoLK) for me. The idea of a GM was that he was god like. He somehow lurked behind the shadows watching our chat, and helped out poor souls in need. Why did we think this? Because there were replies instantly in general chat for questions given. Heck, I even had general questions only to have a pink text whisper: “[GM]” How can I help you?”
So I knew they were there. We can see them physicalContinue Reading

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 zonContinue Reading

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 siContinue Reading

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 alternateContinue Reading
The following is my proof that Allods "Team" has neither the sophistication to respond intellectually or in an adult sort of way to a player who had spent hundreds of dollars to play a play for free game.I had tried to respond in a way that was explanitory as to any mis-understandings they may have had about me and my choices of names for their game. Keep in mind this is a Russian based game. ;]
Do not send us any more emails about your characters' name changes or post any topics on the forums about your characters' name changes. The issue has been closed. This is your final warning.
If you still have issues with your Quest for Chest keys, please send us a separate email about the issue.
