Game Mechanics

Post by Admin on Wed Jul 20, 2016 4:56 pm

The new Old MU Online hardcore game mode update can be intimidating for new players due to the fact that a certain level of understanding of game mechanics is demanded of players who wish to survive in it. In order to help facilitate planning and execution, this page contains information on the most important mechanics to understand. It is intended to serve both as a guide to new players and as a primary reference for existing ones.

Players can feel free to ask questions that are related to the mechanics explained in the core post or any related mechanics you discover and judge important that it's not listed in there. We will do our best to keep this thread updated and organized.

Worlds
There are 2 parent worlds in Old Mu: Standard (STD) and Hardcore (HC). If you die in hardcore, your character can be moved to standard without any cost (your stash is untouched). Everyone you see in Hardcore has never died by a monster.

Here is a simple summary of how death will affect you:
Standard -> Standard
Hardcore -> Standard

The hardcore game mode has some distinctive differences compared to the standard game mode, the most important of these differences are:
     When dead, you'll be disconnected after 5 seconds and your character will become unplayable. Dead characters can only be transferred to the standard game mode or deleted.
(Warning: be noticed that a dead Hardcore character cannot, at any reason, be revived; This includes bugs or lags).
     After selecting character, players will be spawned in the nearest safezone. Every map from 'Valley of Loren' to 'Refuge of Balgass' will have characters spawned in Lorencia.
     Improved drop rate balance/performance for hardcore. (More explained bellow).
     New Jewel of Protection; Modifies the level and option of a ring or pendant unpredictably.

Personal stash
Your personal stash allows you to store items and transfer them between characters. Stashes are shared between all your characters within a world - all of your Standard characters access one stash, while all of your Hardcore characters access a different stash. Items cannot be moved between leagues except by death to a character. Each account is limited to 1 stash, for now.

Chat channels
There are seven types of chat channels: Public, Whisper (private), Global (/post), Party, Guild and Alliance.
Messages preceded by ~ are sent to your party chat if you are in a party, messages preceded by @ are sent to your guild chat if you are in a guild, messages preceded by @@ are sent to your alliance chat if the guild you are in, is in alliance and messages preceded by "/post " are sent to the Global chat, please check the rules of the Global chat to prevent undesired bans.

Classes and stats - Classes
At the start of the game the players can chose between three different character classes. Each class has its specific powers and gears, making no class truly "better" than the other, and all three are typically used to their fullest extent when grouped together.
