Hello all!

We are getting close to release of Ranger’s Arcani server. After all those years of development and many changes (project started in 2010) we are happy that almost every core feature is done. During 2 years of public beta phase (started in Q2 2017) more than 1500 players joined our discord channel to check our server and help us with testing stuff. Before we go into details, please read those statements:

On October 9th 2019 18:00 CET we will launch stress tests! Please come and join if you want to get unique outfit for release! Those who will leave first city will get bonus addon.

Server will be hosted in France. There is a possibility of hosting another one for American players (North&South) but it depends on amount of funds.

According to the results of survey on forum and on discord, we have decided to launch server in PvP mode available on Mainland after leaving the first city. Basic rules of pvp: 1 frag = 10 mins of skull, 3/5 frags per day/week = red skull (you can lose all equipment on death), 5/15 frags per day/week = black skull (you can lose all equipment on death). Black skull remains for 14 days and turns off PvP for affected player.

Below, I want to present you main features segregated into 5 groups: client, character, gameplay, wiki, markets and premium features. I omitted things like new monsters, map, graphics, npcs, quests, mini features or exp/skill rates, because it is obvious that we got a lot of fresh things here. But let's start with a short story.

Ranger's Arcani World
There are 2 main parts of RA world. West, where you come from and East (more known as Main Continent). At the beginning of the game you arrive in one of villages on Main Continent - Chaeck, after escaping from the invasion of dangerous barbarians from Skandia on your land. You have 2 things to choose what to do, enjoy your new life and forget about the past or try to adapt to new conditions but also think about your home and how you can help it. It means that you can follow up main story quest but you don't have to. If you want to explore all areas, you have just one thing to do - leave our newbie land (Chaeck).

RA Client
Game client is based on well known otclient. However, we made some signifact changes to improve gameplay experience. First thing is a launcher, it allows us to give you all in one, by all I mean important links (discord, website and forum), client download and all further updates. The RA client got its own changelog to help you track all new possibilities and bug fixes but what's the most important, we moved account and character creation into client, so you don't need to visit any website after downloading launcher. There are two more things worth to mention, music (we don't force you to download it, it's up to you!) and language option which allows to pick up one of two currently supported languages (English and Polish). Maybe in a future we will be able to manage a translation for other languages like Portuguese or Spanish.


Launcher and some options from our modified otclient..
Your character
In Ranger's Arcani you can be a mage, hunter or mercenary. Each of these vocations can be promoted to two other vocations. Mage can be promoted to wizard or druid, hunter to grenadier or tracker and mercenary to barbarian or paladin. All of them have unique spells and favourite weapons, so take what fits you best.
Skills and spells systems are totally reworked, you get points for each gained level and you can spend them on new skills and spells. Thanks to this, you will no longer spend hours training and memorizing new spell incantations. New skills are specially designed for RA vocations, but we are pretty sure that players will find some unusual builds and tricks to get best results.
Points from levelling up are not the only way to improve your character statistics, besides completely new items with bonuses (and 5 tiers of rarity) we also have rune system. Single runes give you basic improvements, but if you collect them enough to make a rune word, you will get some tasty bonuses!


Skills, spells, runes and crates windows together with spell bar and item info window.
Gameplay
Ranger's Arcani map is full of secrets and hidden hunting places, but if you are not into exploring every corner you will be satisfied too. But remember, inquisitiveness is an advantage that is rewarded. Of course, you will find a lot of quests available from NPCs, but some of them might not be "visible" at first glance, try to speak with inhabitants of those lands.
During your journey you will find out three things, dungeons, bosses and chests. You can get chests with random loot from bosses, achievements or get lucky and come across them when traveling. Dungeons are always for teams, so remember to take some friends with you. But be prepared for hard fight, seriously.
If you like rest and don't need to spend whole time on hunting, you can try some fishing. Our special, rare fish can be really nutritious and will give you some time bonuses. However, if you don't like smell of fish you can visit forge in main city, the local blacksmith offers the possibility of crafting new items or smelting existing ones into ingredients.


NPC chat, boss hp bar and crafting window..
In-game wiki
We did it before Cipsoft, really, please believe me! What am I talking about? Bestiary and item list available in game client. If you manage to kill enough representatives of each species, you will learn about their weaknesses and strengths in bestiary. You can also learn about their loot and add it to auto loot function. To remember items and save them in your items list, you need to investigate by looking at them. So, these 2 features mean that we will not host any official wiki because we don't want to spoil quests solutions. Of course it is not forbidden to get that knowledge from other players during your conversations.


Bestiary and item list window.
Market and premium features
Another two things built in client - market and premium shop. Market allows you to buy or sell items anytime you want, everything will be taken or sent to your deposit. In premium shop you will be able to buy RA coins, they can be exchanged for lord (premium) status, outfits, furniture and some little extra services.
What will you get for purchasing lord status? You will be able to buy houses, make guilds, post 10 market offers at once (free account 3), deposit 2000 items (facc 500), pick 10 items for auto loot (facc 4), choose new spell effect for some of spells, dress in new premium outfit, add 35 VIPs (facc 20), book extra slot in forge for crafting and use horse&boat transport for free. We think that these features do not give special advantages to players with premium account, but they are worth enough to support our server!


Example of spell effect change, free transport and guild&house window.


Windows of premium shop, npc trade and market.


Customizable health bars and forge.


Upcoming features to be released in updates post launch
Some of the things we've planned will not be ready, but they're not required to play. Anyway, we will develop and implement them in updates:
  • Enchanting system
  • 2 new areas (desert and snow land)
  • Guild war system (connected with guildhouses)
  • Some rune words
Thank you to all awesome people that were working on this project for so many years and helped us testing:
Evul, Havada, Oskar, Pemus, Pentagram, picwick, Samna, Shikate, Shiros, Tadzik, Thorn, Timu and others!

Best Regards,
Kuzyn

Been waiting for this for quite some time!

While I agree that the premium features all seem fair, I don't think limiting the VIP list is a good idea, especially the fact that it isn't even unlimited when upgraded.

You say your wiki is a spoiler. But since you have the same monsters as RL Tibia, the monsters stats (etc..) are the same? or you made some modifications to the monsters?

We didnt say that we have same monsters as RL Tibia ;) Names can be similar but loot and statistics are different:
I omitted things like new monsters, <...> because it is obvious that we got a lot of fresh things here.

Only 90euro xD Give us that 90 euro and we will buy it right now. New website functions will be added later, don't worry. About English speakers, we got lot of them, its normal that Polish are active cuz we are Polish aswell ;)

If anyone wants to get bonus outfit after release, please log in to the game today and tomorrow for a test (character progress will be removed). If you leave first city, you also get bonus for this new outfit!

This is a pretty bad idea for an on-hover animation.
I will talk with our web master! 😠

Level 15 :) I think it's too late though.
Yea, its little too late. First city, Chaeck works like a Rookgaard. You need 15 lvl to leave this area, if you follow the main mission and some side quests, you can get like 12/13 levels, of course you don't have to.

I hope that we will deliver some new, fresh, fancy trailer before release. Please keep your fingers crossed!

This looks amazing and I can't wait to play it. Appreciate how the premium features aren't too pay to win either, big ups for that one.
