      Hey, good to see that we are finally closing in on an actual release date for this shard 🙂

      Me and my mates played all through the last run, where Dreams first launched his shard and was followed up by a few Valhalla incarnations after it went down. We always reminisced about how well everything worked on Dreams as it became more and more apparent what an actual mess Valhalla was, lol…

      Looking forward to the 1st of october, and also if you’re going to share some of your philosophies and ideas about this shard in the coming weeks. What kind of gameplay experience we can expect would be fun to know. Like which resources you’re implementing, at what level you aim to keep the loot and skill gains rate etc. If you’ve made any updates to classes since dreams and so on. Or if that’s up to us to discover next month.

        Hey man,

        Good to see you too and thanks for joining. I will be adding some more info during the next few days. I have been busy preparing the site and shard for launch. We are doing some final tests and then we should be ready to go. Shard story-wise: Basically in short. Most of the world has been taken over by monsters (Hence the name ZH Omega which means “last” or “the end” in latin, both being the last POL shard I will be making and the end (apocalypse) of the in-game world). Monsters are mostly situated on the mainland having taken over “most” towns there. This means effectively that the number of NPC’s where you can get materials from has been reduced. We try to find a balance in supply and demand (vendor-wise) and I also want player-crafters to fill a certain role in this as well. Furthermore T2A has been closed off due to previous experiences with players getting stuck, killed and then losing loot due to line of sight issues. In it’s place we have added some new areas (mostly dungeons) which you will be able to find in the world. The staff on this shard will be limited to myself. which basically means there will be no corruption and pages will take time to be answered. The shard has been designed around this and you will notice that the website offers features to aid me in this as well such as a private messaging system and forums.

        Resources will be the same as classic Zuluhotel, that means Zulu ores, radiant nimbus diamonds etc. No new ores and logs have been introduced thus far.

        Skill gain will be moderate. Which means that certain skills are easier to macro/train than others. Skill-gain will not be super fast but also not be super slow. You will start out with a boost of two skills to 90 and one stat to 90 (TIP: Pick 2 other skills that start at 50 when creating a character). The loot has received a bunch of changes and the ways to get “good” loot has been made more difficult. For example we no longer have SoS bottles. High level treasure-maps will be inside dungeons. Most of the bosses have been randomized (which means you will not be able to lure that behemoth to the water every time). Aside from that all the NPC’s have been reworked in terms of loot and have been assigned proper loot groups. The chance for power and vanquishing weapons is fair while devastation is more difficult. Still there’s always that lucky drop.

        The scripts are based on POL 099 and shows similarity to ZH Dreams and ZH Valhalla. We have spend a long time getting rid of bugs, improving and adding new features. For example the guild system features a fully working alliance/war system with alliance chat as well.

        Classes feature the same mechanics as ZHC. That means 130 skill/stat soft-cap and 150 skill hard-cap.

        That’s it in a nutshell. I’ve probably forgot a ton but those are all the things you will have to discover for yourself :-).

        Sounds like a solid plan. Never was a fan of T2A areas and the world is plenty big as it is. Also condensing vendors and other npcs sounds like a good idea. All towns but 1-2 usually feel very barren even if they’re full of vendors, as ppl just pop in there from time to time to stock up on arrows on their quest to gather the millions of em that are needed for archery, lol.

        Loot philosophy also sounds thought through, seems like it will be possible to make reasonable progress through the loot group tiers which is what matters. And harder content where it makes sense to bring a group of players is always fun 🙂

        Will be great to explore a new take on the world as we’re used to it. Now to search for a backup of all those old razor macros… 😀

          Exactly! If you wish to share your razor macro’s you can do so in the designated forum ” Macro Help “.

            Yo Nagash,
            Im known as Dead/Pred and so on. Been playing with my mate Lonewolf for awhile. Will be good coming back and playing at this shard, I thought Zh dreams were a nice shard and hopefully this will be as nice as that shard.
            See u soon on the shard!
            ( launch earlier please 😉)

              Heya Pred, Good to see you again. The shard is heavily based on ZH Dreams and Valhalla with a bunch of adjustments/improvements that we found necessary. I will be sending a mass mail to over 1200 email addresses next week and then we will begin preparations for launch. We will need the remaining time to add some more fixes and improvements. As of yet I still need to spawn a few things such as Ostards and other important critters. But i’m sure you will feel right at home here.

                    Glad to see the movement is still alive!

                    Unfortunately won’t have the time to play – makes it a bit easier on you guys anyways – but wishing you all lots of fun!

                    Nagash, succes mijn broer! 😉

                    Intro: Played several years back, ZHC and others I honestly can’t keep track of. Staffed in other several other servers, but major one was the first versions of Unreal Legends as Developer Casanova. Went by several names as player: Arowmir, Duke & Loki were the most recent I remember. Usually played with Brazilian [Elite] guild.

                      Hey all! I doubt any of you remember me, but I remember a lot of you! I am looking forward to playing again, trying to get my friends to get on board as well.

                        Guys, I hope you’re all well and healthy.
                        Summer’s treated me well, no tan though.

                        I haven’t been involved in any of the many ZH clones since… ZHR, I think.
                        Quit that because of the russians. Sorry to any russians who might feel offended by that statement, butttt…..you probably know where I’m coming from, eh? Eh? No? 🙁

                        Anyhow. I’m swedish. Started out in the end of ZH2 before the class system was introduced with the coming of ZH3, if I remember correctly. Anyone know if the half blinded guy who used to play as a smith is still going strong?

                        You might know me as fuzzyEskimo, imaEskimo (yes… I was a copycat), integer, cannabreth, peejay.

                        ‘Sup Nagash.
