  • Addition of a summary of the rules of multi-boxing:

At times of sufficient game server traffic - 10:00 UTC-22:00 UTC (12:00 CEST-00:00 CEST): multi-boxing limited to 2 simultaneous accounts during PvP, Bosses hunts, Marauder bosses hunts, Storyline scripted events, and tolerated up to 4 simultaneous accounts for other activities

Terms of Service

The following rules cover the most common situations but they are not exhaustive. The Customer Support team has the right to amend these rules if a new situation should arise which needs further clarification.
If a case is too specific to appear in the rules but nevertheless requires the intervention of the Support team, they can act and apply, at any time, warnings or sanctions without being required to inform the whole community.
If you witness a rule violation or infringement, please inform Customer Support by using one of the following means:

  • the in-game ticket system

  • an in-game private chat to an online CSR (/tell command)

  • Rocket Chat

  • an e-mail sent to support@ryzom.com


Code of Conduct

The Support Team


Its members are volunteers under non-disclosure agreement (NDA) and are not allowed to reveal their identity neither to other players nor to other members of the Ryzom teams. If a player thinks he knows the identity of the player behind the CSR (or any NDA members of a Ryzom team), he is prohibited from disclosing the information to others and doing so would be cause for sanctions to be applied. (major offense, see B. Warnings and sanctions)
Members of Support are in charge of solving the various problems related to the game (technical, disciplinary, etc.). They must behave with politeness and courtesy at all times. If you have a disagreement with a member, you can address a complaint, duly documented, to support@ryzom.com which will be forwarded to the head of Support. Any unfair complaint against a member of Support may be subject to a sanction.
When a member of Support contacts you, you must follow their instructions and reply with courtesy and politeness. Any breach will be sanctioned according to our procedures for sanctions and escalation policy. (See B. Warnings and sanctions)
We remind you that members of Support dedicate their time (both game and real life time) to ensure that everyone can play in a peaceful environment: try to have this in mind when you contact a Team member. This is of course the same for all teams: CSR, dev, event, etc.
The Support Team is subject to strict rules that prohibit them from teaming, exchanging with, duelling with any player, or resurrecting them. These rules also forbid them from using their powers for any purpose other than those defined within the context of their function, under risk of removal of their CSR account, or even their player account. In addition, CSRs are not allowed to process tickets involving their own player guilds or characters.
In accordance with these rules, control tools record all critical commands used by CSRs (as well as members of other teams) and display them internally for real-time control by all. Each connection of a member of Support (and of other teams) is also visible so that everyone can verify that no one has usurped their account.
All decisions taken are collective ones and therefore you may be contacted by several members of Support about the same issue depending on its nature.

A. Disagreement with another player


In the case of a disagreement with another player, you are expected to try to find to an amicable settlement yourselves. A ticket should be a recourse of last resort; it should only be sent if you are not able to resolve the situation and a third party needs to become involved.
If you have to resort to sending the above-mentioned ticket, it is important to take screenshot(s), depending on the situation, for further reference. It is essential that the screenshot(s) show(s) the entire in-game screen and has not been changed in any way (censorship or anything else) in order to be considered acceptable. It has to show clearly the violation that you want to point out. Note that a screenshot showing the open map allows us to see the Atysian date, which is easily transposable to a real date. We also accept videos. For any other questions, you can contact us directly in game through a /tell if a CSR is online, through Rocket Chat, or through an e-mail sent to support@ryzom.com.
Note: Any abuse of the ticket system will be documented and sanctioned.

B. Warnings and sanctions


The Customer Support Team has the right to issue warnings or sanctions depending on the seriousness of an infraction, the reaction of the implicated player towards the Support team, and their in-game history (sanctions and previous warnings). A player might thus be given a reprimand, a warning, a suspension period ranging between 24h and one year, or a permanent ban.

Penalty scales


Minor offence


The penalty scale for a minor offence starts with an official warning followed by a 24h suspension, then three days, then one week and up to two weeks. It can be followed or preceded by a mute of increasing duration at the place of the infraction (channels of the game, or Rocket Chat, or forum etc.).
This penalty scale is reset after one year without sanctions.

Major offence


The scale of penalties for a major offence starts with a week of suspension, then one month, then one year and then permanent banning of the account. It can be followed by a kick off the server if necessary.
This penalty scale is reset after three years without sanctions (except for permanent ban).

Critical offence


Critical offence results in a permanent ban of the account after a warning has been notified to the player by e-mail.
In certain specific cases (highly abusive version of an offence, repeated minor offences...), the support team reserves the right to override the above scales of penalties to decide on a penalty better suited to the seriousness of the facts (e.g.: minor offence requalified as a major offence).
Note: In the case of a heavy and immediate sanction (suspension or permanent banning of an account), as the player in question can no longer be contacted in-game, he or she will be contacted only through e-mail to the e-mail address filed in his/her personal account. This is why it is important to enter a valid e-mail address when registering. If the player in question does not receive the e-mail, or if they wish to dispute the sanction, they can contact the Customer Support team at support@ryzom.com.

The sanctions provided in the Ryzom Code of Conduct shall be assigned as follows:

  • Mutes and verbal warnings may be applied by all CSRs.

  • Official warnings (by email) may be applied by all CSRs from the GM grade upwards.

  • Suspensions may only be applied by CSRs at the SGM level.

  • Account bans may only be decided and enforced by Winch Gate Limited.


C. Rules of the Code of Conduct


I. Courtesy Rules


I.1. Harassment of a player or of a member of a Ryzom Team


Major/Minor Offence: depending on the degree, the Support Team will decide on each case.
Provocation and harassment, whether verbal or through gameplay actions, are prohibited in-game as well as on Ryzom's chat channels: insults, threats of all kinds (under cover of roleplay or not), provocation via emotes or other, but also the chain kill of a character, its campfires or its mektoubs (except during outpost battles), repeated or regular pullovers of mobs on the same character... This list is not exhaustive.
The Support team reserves the right to prepare a file if it deems a case to be proven harassment, as well as to take the decisions that are necessary based on the seriousness of the facts.

I.2. Slander or rumour about a Ryzom Team member or Winch Gate


Major/Minor offence: depending on the degree, the Support Team will decide on each case.
Spreading rumours, false accusations or lies against a member of the Ryzom Team or against Winch Gate, in order to harm them or their reputation or honour, is strictly prohibited.
The Support team reserves the right to make appropriate decisions based on the seriousness of the facts.

I.3. Insults, rudeness, disrespect towards a player or a Ryzom Team member


Minor Offence
It is strictly prohibited to insult, be rude to, or show lack of respect towards other players, either directly or indirectly, under cover of roleplay or not, and/or in a language that they may or may not understand. Support team has the right to define the seriousness of the exchanged insults and to punish them at its own discretion.

I.4. Disobedience of Support member's instructions


Minor Offence
When a member of Support contacts you, you must respond as quickly as possible and follow his or her instructions carefully, otherwise you will incur a penalty.

I.5. Disturbance of an in-game event


Minor Offence
As respect towards the players participating in an event and towards the Event Team that prepared it, players not concerned with this event are asked not to come and disturb the event by using words or actions that are inappropriate or irrelevant. Any abuse may be punished.
If you would like to interact with a scheduled event, please contact the Event Team (events@ryzom.com), which will judge the admissibility of your request.

I.6. Account sharing


No Offence
Sharing a player account is strongly discouraged.
The support team totally disengages itself from any problem resulting from such sharing; logging into the account without the owner's agreement, theft of items belonging to a character on the account or to his guild (whether sold, exchanged or destroyed), change of faction, nation or renown of a character on the account, appropriation of the account by another player, etc.
In case of account sharing, the account owner remains responsible for the words and actions of his characters and therefore incurs a sentence in case of violation of the Code of Conduct.

I.7. Bad behavior on a chat channel of the game (Game server, IRC, forums and Rocket chat included)


Major/Minor Offence: depending on the degree, the Support Team will decide on each case.
Universe channels are primarily channels of mutual help (questions-answers about the game, request for help, rez ...). They are also open to any discussion of interest to most of the community. If not, please use the /tell or a private channel. Flooding is therefore moderated there and trolling, spamming (action of repeating or publishing several messages in a row within a few minutes) and flaming are prohibited.

  1. Any harassment, threat, or other embarrassing and disquieting act towards another player or member of a Ryzom team is prohibited.

  2. Rude, abusive, defamatory, obscene, xenophobic, homophobic and anti-semitic language is prohibited. Similarly, any sexually explicit statement is banned.

  3. You may not impersonate any employee of Winch Gate, CSR or any other member of Ryzom teams.

  4. You must not violate any laws, whether local, national, European or international.

  5. The illegal transfer of documents, files or the like is prohibited via Winch Gate's network of sites.

  6. When, in-game or through any other Ryzom service, a CSR member contacts you, you must answer and follow their instructions.

  7. You may not use Winch Gate's services for activities other than those permitted in the gaming world.

  8. If the information on your profile is false, incomplete or incorrect, you will not be able, in some cases, to benefit from the support provided, because the CSRs could not identify you correctly.

  9. You must not communicate any personal data of other players, whether in-game, on the forums of Winch Gate, through IRC or on Rocket Chat.


Courtesy in the game

  1. You must not violate the Code of Conduct.

  2. Any harassment, whatever its form, is prohibited.

  3. You must not obstruct another player during their game phases.

  4. You must behave respectfully towards other players and the members of Ryzom Team.

  5. You must not hide behind a "role" to transgress the rules of Courtesy.


Forum Rules

  1. You must not violate the Code of Conduct.

  2. You must express yourself clearly, act civilly and politely.

  3. You must not harass or insult other players, neither any member of a Ryzom Team.

  4. Cross-posting (posting the same message several times to attract attention) is prohibited.

  5. You are required to report any message that is illegal or violates these rules.

  6. Advertising for websites and so forth with no link with Ryzom is prohibited.


II. Naming Policy


The naming policy defines the rules that govern the choice of the name of your character when it is created. It is established by the support team under the direction of its manager.

Name choice


When creating your character, in the final phase you will have to choose a name for him/her. It is advisable to take inspiration from the the Lore to have a character that adheres better to the universe of Atys. If you have no ideas or the names you choose are already taken, you can use the random name generator available at this step. A name that is not Atys-inspired, but nonetheless in accordance with the charter below will be accepted.

Name change


At any time, a Support Team Member can contact you and ask you to choose another name if it does not comply with the rules below.
You can request a name change from a Support Member for reasons such as roleplay, wish to abandon a name that is attracting other players' mockery, anonymity... (this list is not exhaustive). Your request must be reasoned and will be validated by the Support Team.
The maximum number of pseudonym changes will depend on the type of your account:

  • Free to Play account: 1 allowed name change for each character.

  • Premium account: 1 change of name allowed every six months for each character.


Naming Policy and penalties for violations


Note: If a player creates multiple characters with names that violate the naming policy in the "Very offensive names" section below, they may be subject to the sanctions provided in the Code of Conduct.
1. Very offensive names

The character is immediately renamed with a default name and an email is sent to the player to inform them of the name change.

  • You may not use coarse, racially or ethnically offensive, obscene, sexual, or drug culture words or phrases as names. You may not use spelling to conceal the use of such names. Your name may not refer to sexual anatomy, nor be an abusive phrase. This prohibition covers any language used in the game.

  • You may not use a name chosen to harm, in any way, or impersonate another player, including Winch Gate Property Limited Employees or a Ryzom Team volunteers.


2. Offensive names

The character is renamed with 24h of delay to allow time for the the player to propose a new name. This for characters created after the publication of the present Naming Policy.

  • You may not use names that are phonetically offensive or would go against the Naming Policy.

  • You may not use names of religious, occult or significant historic origin (e.g.: Jesus, Lucifer, Nosferatu)

  • You may not use names containing titles such as: Master, King, Queen, Lord, Sir, Mother, God... (this list is not exhaustive).


3. Forbidden names:

The character is renamed with 3 days of delay to allow time for the the player to propose a new name. This concerns only characters created after the publication of the present Naming Policy.

  • You may not use names that are copyrighted, trademarks or names of materials or products (e.g.: Fujitsu, Whiskey, Tylenol, Toshiba).

  • You may not use names of famous people, politicians and popular fictional characters (e.g.: Angelina Jolie, Donald Trump, James Bond.).
    You may not use proper nouns of Ryzom (e.g.: Jena, Tryton, Yrkanis, Mabreka).

  • You may not use a name which is the reverse spelling of a name in contradiction with the Naming Policy (e.g.: Anej, Notyrt, Sinakry, etc.).

  • You may not use easily recognized names that come from another universe such as medieval fantasy or science fiction or others, either fictional or non-fictional, even if hidden by a slightly different spelling (e.g.: Skywolker, Gondalf, Flintstains, Obywan) .

  • You may not use common words or phrases not pertaining to the Ryzom universe, as names (e.g.: cell phone, microwave, truck).


Characteristics of Guild Names


For the most part, guild names must comply with all the rules of names and are subject to the same rules as character names in terms of renaming, depending on whether the elements that make up the name of the guild are very offensive, offensive or just forbidden.
There are, however, several exceptions:

  • The name of a guild can use the proper noun of places on Atys in order to facilitate the role play (e.g.: The Protectors of Fairhaven).

  • The name of a guild can have in its title, for roleplay purposes, the name of a character of the Lore if the whole does not break any point of the Naming Policy and is consistent with the Lore. So, "The children of Elias", "The disciples of Mabreka" conform to the charter of names, but "The Jar of Tryton" does not.


Characteristics of pets names:


The animals belonging to player's character (mount, packers, zigs) must be named according to the Naming Policy, except the one related to the proper names of Ryzom. These animals are subject to the same rules as character names in terms of renaming, depending on whether the elements that make up the name of the animal are very offensive, offensive or simply forbidden.
If you think that a player's name is inappropriate, disturbing, or incompatible with the game, you can report it to us by ticket or directly in game by contacting a member of the Support Team (the list of CSRs in-game at the moment is displayed under the SYSTEM INFO tab of the chat window when you type /who gm).
If you want to challenge a rename request (any abuse will be sanctioned), you can contact the head of support via e-mail to support@ryzom.com.
Any request will be studied very carefully, any abuse will be recorded on the player’s profile and, if necessary, sanctioned.

III. Game Integrity Infringement


1. Servers data hacked, decrypted or assimilated


Critical Offence
Changing the client or its means of communicating with the server in order to obtain an advantage is strictly prohibited and is punishable by a permanent ban.

2. Account Piracy


Critical Offence
The taking over by a player of a Ryzom account that does not belong to him, regardless of the computer means used, is strictly forbidden and is subject to a definitive ban, except if it is done with the explicit agreement of its owner (for example to solve a technical problem via screen sharing) or if the owner has shared his login and password with this person (see** I.6.**).

3. Utilization of a bot (*)


Major Offence
() *Using a third-party program to play through scripted actions.
Using macros which are not part of Ryzom's integrated macro system in order to make your character partly or completely independent of your direct control is strictly prohibited.
Control of several characters by the use of a third-party program is strictly prohibited. If, during a check, the Support Team is not able to discern whether a player is abusing this rule, the player will have to provide the proof that they're not using any third-party software to control several characters at the same time.

4. Multiboxing


4.1- General rule for multiboxing

Multiboxing (playing several characters at the same time, without the help of third-party software) is limited to two accounts connected simultaneously during PvP (including outpost battles), bosses hunts, marauder boss attacks and Storyline scripted events (see III.4.2) and tolerated up to four accounts for other activities.
When a player plays several characters simultaneously (multiboxing), there should be no doubt for an observer that they are controlled manually one after the other and not by a bot. In case of doubt, the observer is invited to send to the Support a video showing the characters acting in an apparently synchronized way. The Support will then decide if this constitutes a breach of this Code of Conduct and, if so, is the work of a possible bot (see III.3) or if it is a breach of this paragraph. In the latter case, the accounts concerned will be subject to a simultaneous connection restriction (inability to connect two or more accounts simultaneously).
4.2- Multiboxing during PvP, bosses and marauder bosses or on a scripted event of the Storyline

Major Offence
Multiboxing is limited to two accounts connected simultaneously during PvP (including outpost battles, bosses hunts, marauder boss attacks and Storyline scripted events. If you suspect abuse, please send a screenshot or video showing the violation to Support.
4.3- Multiboxing for more than 4 characters

Major Offence
The number of accounts connected at the same time is limited to four.
However, Customer Support may make exceptions in individual cases (such as a large family, public computer etc). If you believe you should be exempted, please contact Support at support@ryzom.com, mentioning the reason for your request along with the names of all the accounts concerned.

4.4 Multiboxing during off-peak hours


Multiboxing is tolerated for up to four simultaneous accounts for all activities except PvP during the hours when it is a gameplay necessity due to low game server traffic (22h-10h UTC, i.e. 0h-12h CEST).

Summary on multiboxing


At times when the game server is sufficiently busy - 10:00 UTC-22:00 UTC (12:00 CEST-00:00 CEST):

  • Multiboxing limited to 2 simultaneous accounts during:

    • PvP

    • Bosses hunts

    • Marauders boss attacks

    • Storyline scripted events



  • Multiboxing tolerated at 4 simultaneous accounts for other activities.


At times of low game server traffic - 22:00 UTC-10:00 UTC (00:00 CEST-12:00 CEST):

  • Multiboxing limited to 2 simultaneous accounts during:

    • PvP



  • Multiboxing allowed up to 4 simultaneous accounts for other activities.


5. Exploit


Critical, Major or Minor Offence, depending upon the case
The concept of exploit covers any use of a third-party program, a client modification or recompilation or a bug to gain an advantage over the other players.
Exploits are forbidden and punishable by the Customer Support Team, which has the right to decide the severity of the noticed exploit. On this subject, repeated offences are an aggravating factor.
Discovering a security breach or an exploitable bug does not constitute a breach of the Code of Conduct provided that it is immediately reported by email to the Support (support@ryzom.com) and is therefore not liable to be sanctioned, as long as the use of such is stopped after discovery.
If you suspect the use of an exploit, you must contact us using one of the means mentioned above.

6. Aggro dragging, except at outpost battles


Minor Offence
Intentionally dragging one or several mobs towards another player in order to kill or harass them is prohibited. If a player sees or is informed that he has unintentionally committed aggro dragging, he must apologize and do his best to resurrect the concerned characters, if required.
If you are victim of intentional aggro dragging and can prove it (for instance a screenshot of a tell showing that, when being contacted by you, the person dragging didn't show any sign of remorse and didn't want to come back and revive you), you can contact Support Team through one of ways mentioned above. We will then open a file and act accordingly. Here again, repeated offences will be taken into consideration.
Only aggro dragging during an outpost battle is tolerated (see III.9. Disrespect of the PvP rules).

7. Kill stealing


Minor Offence
Killing a mob which is already being attacked by another player or group of players, is considered as kill stealing and is prohibited.
If, after trying to resolve the situation between the parties involved, no solution is found, you may contact Support Team through the means mentioned above. However, before contacting any CSR, first try to communicate with the player(s) involved and resolve it yourself!
In the case of a Boss, a Named mob a Marauder Boss, please refer to the following paragraph.

8. Rules regarding Bosses, Marauder Bosses and Named mobs


Minor Offence
a) Theft of Bosses, Marauder Bosses or Named

A Boss, Marauder Boss or Named belongs to the first team that has locked it, as long as the lock is active. (See https://app.ryzom.com/app_forum/index.php?page=topic/view/27212 for more information.)
A second team may assume the Boss, Marauder Boss or Named only if it is not yet locked or it is unlocked. To do this, it can exclusively:

  • Fight the first team in PvP;

  • Take advantage of the departure of the first team, which automatically unlocks the Boss or Named. Note that if there is only one player is left alive or present from the team that has locked the Boss or Named, it will be unlocked.
    Aggro dragging aimed at weakening the other team is prohibited and is therefore punishable (see III.6).


A Boss or Named is considered free as long as it is not locked by any team.
The pull of Boss, of Marauder Boss or of Named by a single person, that is to say without team, is possible but insufficient to cause the locking. To re-acquire the Boss, Marauder Boss or Named in this case is not considered to be kill stealing.
b) Camping of Boss or Named spots

Camping of Boss or Named mobs’ spots is not regulated because it is often impossible to prove.

9. Disrespect of the PvP rules


Minor Offence
In Ryzom, PvP is at all times consensual. Activating your PvP tag, entering a PvP zone or engaging in an outpost battle implies that you accept the consequences. To put it simply, if you do not want to take part in PvP action, then it is your responsibility to not activate your tag or not go into PvP zones.
a) Faction PvP

A player who activates their PvP tag accepts the consequences, whatever the circumstances.
E.g.: being killed while foraging, at the stables, while afk, at a respawn point near a vortex.
If, despite your tag, you wish to avoid the fight, you can wait for detagging to occur, hide, use a TP, change place or region, etc.
b) Zone PvP

The player who enters a PvP zone accepts the consequences, whatever the circumstances. However, as a specific exception, killings at respawn points near vortices are prohibited and punishable if proven. If you are tagged for Zone PvP and you are the victim of a kill at a vortex respawn, you can contact us through one of the ways described above. In this case, it is strongly recommended that you add a screenshot to support your claim (please ensure that the SYSTEM INFO window is visible in the shot).
c) Outpost battle PvP

The player who enters an Outpost battle area and chooses a side, accepts the consequences, whatever the circumstances.
However, as a specific exception, kills at respawn points near a vortex are prohibited and punished if proven. If you are under OP battle tag and you are the victim of a kill at a vortex or respawn, you can contact us through one of the ways described above. In this case, it is strongly recommended that you include a screenshot to support your claim.
Untagged characters in the OP may be removed during the battle as they distort the targeting of the protagonists. CSRs can move them if required.
If, despite your tag, you wish to avoid the fight, you can wait for detagging to occur, hide, use a TP, change place or region, etc.
Rules regarding outposts (OP)

a) CSRs will, as a general rule, not be present at outpost battles. However, if you notice a violation of the rules of decency and behaviour, you can immediately contact the Support team.
b) If you have become stuck in the landscape in a region where an outpost battle is taking place, first try to teleport. If you don't succeed, you must contact Customer Support, describing your situation. A CSR will then help to free you.
c) Everything that falls under the normal mechanics of the game is allowed in combat zones, provided that all those involved are tagged for PvP.

  1. A Mektoub packer might die. By bringing it into a combat zone, you are exposing it to risks.

  2. Spawn camping is almost impossible because of the security zone around the respawn points, and is thus allowed. If you die and your enemies are near your respawn point, you will have either to wait for regeneration in the safe zone or to choose another respawn point/Teleportation pact to rejoin the battle.

  3. During outpost battles, using aggro dragging and killing yelks near the fight is a valid and allowed game strategy.


d) Outpost Blocking
Declaring war on your own OP or that of one of your allies, or having your allies declare war on your OP(s) in order to prevent someone else declaring war on it, is considered an exploit and is prohibited.
The transferring of ownership of an OP from one guild to another is allowed; raising the threshold during the transfer is forbidden, as is the handing over of the OP multiple times in a row, this being considered as blocking the OP.
e) Repetition of false declarations of war
Repeated false declarations of war, i.e., not followed by a real attack of the guild or its allies or with too few combatants to be able to raise the threshold against the NPCs alone, are considered harassment.
If you think your guild could be charged with this offence, take a screenshot showing all the players present on the outpost during the attack to show it to the support team if necessary.
Please note that this rule does not apply to counter-attacks (attacks launched to counter an outpost attack).

IV. Inappropriate Advertising


1. Gold selling


Critical Offence
Gold sellers have nothing to do with the game and its environment. Thus, they are strictly forbidden. The guilty player will immediately be kicked and banned.

2. Advertising of a product or a website unrelated to Ryzom


Major/Minor Offence: depending on the type of advertising, the Support team will examine all cases individually.
Advertising for websites not related to Ryzom and its environment is prohibited. The guilty player will immediately be muted and sanctioned as appropriate.
The support team will review each violation and decide on the sanction depending on the nature of the advertisement published.

V. General Fraud


1. Impersonating a member of a Ryzom Team or Winch Gate


Major Offence
It is strictly forbidden to pretend to be a member of the game teams or Winch Gate, whether in-game, on the forum of Ryzom, on IRC, Rocket Chat or elsewhere on the web.

2. Attempting to deceive a Ryzom Team member


Major Offence if the player gets a benefit
Attempting to deceive a member of the Ryzom Team, either in order to retrieve items already won (e. g.: event reward, mission item, Boss' loot, Marauder Boss’ piece or plan...), or for any other purpose is strictly forbidden. Any player convicted of this transgression will be punished in accordance with paragraph B. Warnings and sanctions.

3. Impersonating another player


Minor Offence
It is forbidden to impersonate another player in any way (including pretending to be his reroll or alt and speaking on his behalf).

4. Claiming a special relationship with a member of a Ryzom Team


Minor Offence
It is strictly forbidden to pretend to have a privileged relationship with a member of the Ryzom team (including a member of Support), whether to harm them, to make oneself look good to other players, to try to influence others, or for some other reason.
The members of the Ryzom teams are subject to a non-disclosure clause and therefore their identities (personal and player) are preserved. In addition, each member follows an internal code of conduct that prohibits them from favouring one player over another.
Note: If such a relationship proves to be true, the player and the CSR (or member of another Ryzom team) would be subject to the sanctions provided by their respective codes of conduct.

Patch 868

A client patch and server restart took place on May 17, 2021 to implement the following changes, adds and fixes.

New Allegories

  • Tepsen was right: a jewel engraved with an Allegory can indeed produce beneficial effects on its wearer (see Rumors about kitins). Indeed, the best jeweler in Atys, Loigi Giurgi, has managed to discover four effects that he is now making available to everyone in exchange for Elyps. Namely:
  • Sweet Death: 1% chance to avoid the death penalty that usually follows a resurrection.
  • Back on feet: 3% chance to recover, upon resurrection, half of your life, stamina, sap and focus maxima.
  • Back in good shape : 2% chance to recover, during your resurrection, three quarters of your life, stamina, sap and focus maxima.
  • Back in glory : 1% chance to recover, at the time of your resurrection, the totality of your life, stamina, sap and focus maxima.

    Precisions:

  • To engrave an allegory, speak to Loigi Giurgi at the north of the Matis Arena.
  • An Allegory can only be engraved on an equipped jewel.
  • Engraved jewels are personal and can only be exchanged once the engraving of the Allegory has been erased.
  • The probability of producing the effects is, as you may have noticed, still very low, but the craftsmen and scientists are working to increase them tenfold (the Rumors will inform you of the progress of this work).

OP Refactoring Tests

    The four outposts recently established in the Nexus are activated (opened to homin attack). The characteristics of the battles to be fought for their conquest not only differ significantly from those of the "historical" outposts, but will evolve as the redesign project progresses. Below are those adopted for the first phase of testing:

  • Mode: Guild vs. NPC (GvE), where only the guild having declared war can participate in the battle (no allied or enemy PCs on the battlefield).
  • Duration: 55 minutes (11 rounds of 5 minutes).
  • Declaration: Only one battle per week per guild and per outpost is allowed (so any guild can fight, at best, four battles per week, one on each of the four outposts).
  • Schedule: a new battle can start at the beginning of each hour for each outpost. A guild wishing to attack must make its declaration within 5 minutes before the start time. For example, a guild wishing to be the attacking guild for the 9pm battle must make its declaration of war at the earliest 8:55 pm, but before 9:00 pm. If several guilds wish to register, only the first one will be retained, the others will have to try again for a next battle.
  • Victory conditions: the attacking guild must pass the threshold set for it (10 at most) at the outpost it is attacking.
  • Outcome: A won battle does not give the victorious guild possession of the concerned outpost (the latter is returned within the hour to the NPCs who defended it) but any battle fought closes with the granting of a reward.
  • Reward: its nature and size are determined by the threshold of the attacked outpost and are displayed as soon as the war is declared. It is automatically awarded to the testing guild at the end of the battle.

    The thresholds set for a given guild at the outpost that will be the target of its next test battle and the rewards to be expected for the latter will evolve as follows:

  • The initial threshold for the four outposts is set at 3.
  • The higher the threshold, the higher the reward... and the reverse is true.
  • After a defeat (outpost threshold not exceeded during the battle), the outpost threshold will remain the same for the guild.
  • After a victory, the offered threshold of the outpost at subsequent battles of the same guild will be increased permanently by one. But if this new threshold is found too difficult to exceed by the guild, the latter can choose to set a lower threshold to the outpost for the next battle.

    Example:

    A guild attacks for the first time the outpost 250 of the Nexus (whose threshold is then for it set to 3) and wins. From then on, it can choose, for its next test battle, to attack the same outpost with threshold 3 or threshold 4. In the first case, even if the said next battle is victorious, the threshold that will be proposed it for a third battle will be 3. In the second case, the latter threshold will be preset to 5 (if victorious) or 4 (if defeated).

Three tribes pay allegiance to Marauders

    The First Deserters, the Smugglers and the Lawless have pledged their allegiance to the Marauders. Their camps and missions have been adjusted accordingly.

    However, the Achievements for these tribes have not yet been updated; they will be soon.

Enrichment of the events

    The range of behaviors that the animation team can make NPCs perform during events has been expanded. Some of these added behaviors already existed for outpost NPCs (such as NPC healing NPCs and grenade launcher use), others did not. In addition, a parent-child relationship has been implemented to allow for more efficient management of NPC groups.

    This modification does not affect all NPCs and creatures of Atys, but only those entities whose appearance and play are controlled by the animators via Ryzom Arkitect (ARK).

Bosses Refactoring

    The new Bosses are ready to appear on new popping sites. Here are some of their characteristics:

  • All species present in a region of Atys produce a Boss to appear in that region.
  • Conversely, no Boss of a given species will ever pop in a region where no creatures of that species live (so there is no point hoping to find a vorax Boss in a region where no vorax has ever been seen).
  • When a Boss dies on a given site, another Boss, from the same region, is elected to succeed him and appear on the said site within a few days (random duration).
  • The level of Bosses is in accordance with the level of the region in which they appear (thus, a level 250 region only hosts level 270 Bosses).
  • Two Bosses cannot appear simultaneously on the same site.
  • Several Bosses of the same species can appear simultaneously in different regions (such as Armkoo and Armkan), or even several Bosses of the same look (such as Armkoo 220 and Armkoo 270).
  • The rotation of Bosses on the sites of the same region is favored. Thus, you will not always meet the same Boss on the same site, but often another of the valid Bosses of the region.

    The implementation of this new popping system of Bosses, started a few days after that of the patch described here, has been carried out in three stages in rapid succession:

  • Step 1: appearances in the Nexus, at a faster pace than usual at first (in order to validate the system without too much delay), then, from the next step on, at the usual pace (every three or four days).
  • Step 2: appearances in Prime Roots at the usual pace.
  • Step 3: appearances throughout Atys at the usual pace.

Atys and Silan in-game maps

  • Map of Atys : it now includes the map of Silan, the one of Almati Wood and the one of the kitins' lair in the latter.
  • Silan map: you can now zoom in on the Ranger's Land, so you can find your way around better.

Storyline missions rewards

    Until now, out of the five in-game Storyline missions, only the "Kitin Rumors" ( those about Allegories) and "Nexus Riches" missions offered a reward (respectively a Yubo Allegory and a Gnoof Mount).

    In order for each mission to offer a reward, we have split the first into two missions: "Kitin Rumors" and "Allegory Rumors". "Allegory Rumors" now offers the Yubo Allegory as a reward, and "Rumors of Kitins" is one of the four missions that are from now on rewarded.

    Thus, the two missions of the Prologue ("General Rumor" and "Kitin Rumor") as well as the missions "Mapping the Nexus" and "Very special necklaces!" are each rewarded by a permanent improvement of the effects of the Allegories (once these are engraved again). To wit:

  • completing 1 of the 4 missions multiplies the allegorical effect by 2;
  • completing 2 of the 4 missions multiplies the allegorical effect by 3;
  • completing 3 of the 4 missions multiplies the allegorical effect by 4;
  • completing 4 of the 4 missions multiplies the allegorical effect by 5.

    For example, if you have the "Sweet Death" allegory engraved after completing these four missions you will have a 5% chance of avoiding the death penalty instead of 1%.

Configuration of DeepL

    The options for setting up the in-game automatic translation are now available in the "Configuration" window (entry "Language").

  • Ability to disable the flag displaying the source text, for each language.
  • Ability to invert the translated text and the original text in tooltip, for each language.
  • Ability to entirely deactivate the automatic translation for the Guild, Region, Universe and/or Surroundings channels.

Auras durations indicator

  • When an Aura is activated, its icon appears among the Bonuses/Maluses and indicates the remaining duration of its effect (see 2 on the picture).
  • Then, once the Aura is dissipated, the same icon indicates the remaining duration of the inability to activate any Aura (see 1 on the picture).
  • Finally, the icon disappears from the Bonuses/Maluses when an Aura is activable again.

Miscellaneous

  • The time to climb on your mount is reduced to 2 seconds, and the time to dismount is reduced to 1 second (following a suggestion in the Ideas for Ryzom forum: https://app.ryzom.com/app_forum/index.php?page=topic/view/31285/1)

This page says 19.5 hours to go in this event.

Will the cook be staying around to let us catch up on the original 10 hour cooldown ?  The chamge to 2 hours helps, but even if IG 12 hours, thats only 6 turn ins ... and seems most players who particpated still have over 1,000 steaks to turn in.

EDIT:   Answer From Tamarea:

After event end, we can turn in leftover steaks into a barrel that will be left till the end of the month.

EDIT to EDIT:

As this is a considerable effort ... and will take some time to script, details on when the barrel will appear will be forthcoming from Ryzom Team.]]>

PS : j'ai posté ici (et pas sur le fil spécifique qui concerne les animaux domestiques) car la question me paraissait plus liée au patch

_________

je reédite le post pour dire que quand je demande "est-ce qu'on peut le supprimer le titre ?" je parle pas de supprimer la chose au niveau du palfrenier mais plutot au niveau de ma monture gubani

je pense que les développeurs ont des bonnes raisons d'avoir fait cette option et peut-être certains joueurs aiment et peut-être ça alourdit l'affichage à cause que la taille du texte pour le titre est trog grosse

petit retour sur l'event de samedi dernier, sous forme de points possitifs et points à améliorer (à mon sens):

+ Le principe très sympa de nous faire suivre un kami pour trouver une fleur, la balade dans les primes, les fausses pistes, et ce petit kami tout mini qui court avec ses petites patounes. Le pnj (wan zu?) qui nous a suivi dans les primes pour leader un peu par défaut. Bien aussi d'avoir fait sortir le kizarak du giron pour éviter d'avoir à le débusquer. Et bien sûr d'avoir téléporté les morts pour pas perdre trop de temps après notre échec cuisant devant le nid de kitin.

- la fleur n'était pas très vive, du coup certain l'ont loupé. Peut être la mettre en rouge pétant ou autre, pour mieux la voir?
Par ailleurs, je reste un peu sur ma faim avec le kami. Côté enfantin du kami? Check. Côté ésothérique? Check. Mais il manquait ce côté puissant du kami. C'est des sortes de dieux. Et pourtant, ça n'est pas ce qui en ressortait. En tout cas, c'est comme ça que je vois les kamis.
Des idées: bien montrer que c'est lui qui a téléporté les morts (je sais pas, une phrase type: kami faire revenir machin et bidule, kami pouvoir faire ça, au lieu de le dire en HRP), possibilité aussi de nous aider face aux kitins quand on s'est retrouvé débordé (kami: kami cacher homin, homins invisibles). Bref, des petites trucs pour qu'on sente bien que bon, les kamis, c'est pas juste des boules de poils toute mimi.

Mais sinon globalement j'ai bien aimé. Merci à la team. ;)]]>
