Continue the main scenario

The threat of the Warriors of Darkness is no more. Unexpected reunions salve the ache of bittersweet farewells.

Join Hildibrand ─ devourer of brains and undead overlord extraordinare ─ on his latest case, and follow new developments at Saint Endalim’s Scholasticate.

The party finder has acquired new skill: reaching other worlds

The party finder is no longer just for your world. Starting in patch 3.5, players can use the party finder to recruit fellow adventurers from anywhere within the same data center! If you’d rather limit your recruitment to a select few friends, you can also use a party password. Even when it feels like they’re a world away, playing with friends has never been easier.

Summoners can give egi a whole new look with the /egiglamour text command, giving their pets the appearance of Ruby Carbuncle, Emerald Carbuncle, and Topaz Carbuncle.
