Update 22/09/2017 - Servers back up, exchange event is live!

Update: The servers are back up and the Weekend event has commenced!

We have added two special Vendors in the Bazaar this weekend (ending 24/09/2017) so you can exchange no longer needed reset scrolls for more useful inventory and backpack expansions!

- Exchange 4x Attribute Reset Scrolls for 1x Backpack Expansion
- Exchange 4x Skill Reset Scrolls for 1x House Inventory Expansion

The above options should help high level players to expand their inventories while all new characters get the expanded inventory automatically (depending on the edition purchased).

Your GoE Team


We will be restarting our servers today 22/09/2017 at 3:35PM CET in order to implement the weekend event and add some items to the Empire Coins and Frozen Ember shops!

We have listened to your highly valued suggestions and feedback, and thus carried out in-game shop changes with immediate effect!

- Mount and pet orbs can be purchased with Empire Coins & Frozen Ember!
a) The orbs purchased with Empire Coins can drop: 1 day pets/mounts and 7 days pets/mounts (we are adding these for people to complete the compendium and try the pet and mounts outs)
b) The orbs purchased with Frozen Ember can drop: 7 day pets/mounts, 30 day pets/mounts and permanent pets/mounts

- Apart from the expanded inventory space for new characters (based on the purchased edition) we have re-added the expansions to the shops:
a) Backpack expansions have been added to Loot Orbs that you can buy for Empire Coins (currency out of daily quests)
b) Housing Inventory and Backpack expansions can be purchased for 99 Frozen Embers with a 33% discount offer

Thank you for patience,

Your GoE Team

Guardians of Ember has left Early Access!


Today we leave Early Access behind and push to new horizons with Guardians of Ember - including a lot of bug fixes, improvements and new features that you guys have been waiting for. So come along and hack’n’slay with us!

What’s new?

Nightmare Difficulty: What was that? You had the impression Guardians of Ember was a piece of cake? Well Guardian, the newly implemented Nightmare difficulty mode for dungeons will be right up your alley!

Group Finder: Never be alone by easily finding other players to storm a Dungeon - and teleporting instantly to them! Oh, and while we are at it we reworked the XP and Loot Sharing in Groups so that even Healer and Tanks don’t miss out on rewards even they pull little aggro!

Guild Skill System: Guild members can now unlock 2 of a total of 14 bonuses, that buff their team in various ways.

Dismantle gear by rarity: From now on you can simply dismantle pre-selected items from various rarity levels in bulk. Very convenient!

More fun in low levels: We listened and lowered the level requirement for crafting to level 15 (you can from the beginning dismantle items) and PvP to level 10 while adding a buff in PvP and Horde Mode (the new coop mode you might have missed) to balance the odds.

German and Spanish versions: Apart from English you can play the game now als in Espagnol and Deutsch with French coming soon!

Updated Shop System: We listened and made several changes to our item shop, selling vanity items such as pets and mounts directly but removing anything that was considered Pay-to-Win. For example, players with a Mortal Edition, Deluxe Edition or higher now have unlimited Free Reskill and expanded inventory (the latter for new characters)! You love those Loot Orbs? You now not only get them for Empire Coins (the currency from daily quests) but also Loot Orbs for Level Ups!

With our commercial launch come two new Guardians of Ember packages :

Deluxe Edition, including the following items:
- White Mane Horse (Permanent)
- Pangolin Pet (Permanent)
- Enlightened Title Certificate
- Immortal Loot Orbs at every second level up*
- two pages of Inventory for each character*

Ultimate Edition, including the following items:
- God’s People Costume
- Exclusive Gold Crown Crane Mount (Permanent)
- Exclusive Dragonhawk Baby Pet (Permanent)
- Misty Magic Wings (Permanent)
- Transcendent Title Certificate
- Immortal Loot Orbs at every level up*
- fully expanded inventory for each character*
* applies only on newly created characters

Both editions are 33% off for the next 7 days and there are also DLCs for those players who wish to upgrade!

What’s next?

We will continue adding new features and improving Guardians of Ember! Act 6 and The Endless Tower are just around the corner and we have some other things in mind (new PvP mode, anyone?). Keep an eye on the forums and follow our Facebook page!

About This Game

Developed by the hardcore gamers at Runewaker (the developers of Runes of Magic and Dragon's Prophet), Guardians of Ember combines traditional MMORPG with Hack’n’Slash-style combat in PVE and PVP as well as near endless character optimization.

Choose from six different classes and extend your skill set by selecting a secondary class once you reach level 15. Fifty-eight different regions with over sixty randomized and challenging dungeons await, where you will battle against monsters, mortals and the living dead during your crusade to retrieve the Ember either solo or in groups.

After years of war, the world of Olyndale has descended into chaos. As a Guardian of Ember, your brotherhood represents the last line of defense against a dark menace. Sinister forces threaten the land and can only be stopped by harnessing the ancient Ember. It is your fate - and your duty - to retrieve the magic stone and bring back peace to Olyndale.


Full MMORPG with Hack’n’Slash-style Combat System
GoE is primarily a MMORPG but the Iso-perspective, reminiscent of many ARPGs, ensures the right angle for smashing your opponents in combat. While as a server-based game it is not as fast as some single player titles, GoE features a full set of MMO features including an open world to freely explore and fight in, Dungeons for Groups, a guild system, and trading.

Nearly Unlimited Character Optimization
Four races and six classes with over 300 active and passive skills, a character editor with a variety of faces, hairstyles, an enormous color palette and the option to adjust every body part makes your character unique! The wide range of skill and item variation allows you to create your own playstyle.

Dual Class System
Once you reach level 15 a second class becomes available to add to your character that can be leveled and mastered, adding many more skills to your arsenal. Since you can switch classes at any time, you can master every other class.

Enjoyable solo or in groups
Despite being an MMO, you can play all of the PvE story-content alone. Then again, if you want to group up the new Group Finder provides you with a convenient way to find and meet new teammates with whom you can take on the ravaging hordes or other Guardians in PvP.

Randomized Dungeons with Individual Difficulty Settings
Over sixty story-based and randomized dungeons offer replayability for single Heroes or group of adventurers. Before entering a dungeon, players can choose from three difficulties, influencing the loot, gold and XP gained upon completion.

Dismantling & Enchanting System
If you are to become Olyndale’s protector, you are going to need powerful gear.Guardian of Ember’s unique crafting system allows you to disassemble items in your inventory for materials that you can use to craft stronger armor and more powerful weapons.

Professions & Crafting
Along the path of crafting the ultimate gear, you will need to improve your crafting skills. Choose from four professions that will determine the types of items you specialize in making. Use the Divining Compass to locate resources and dig them out of the ground with a range of Mining Golems. As you progress you will be able to implement more advanced recipes for mightier items.

Fishing, Planting & Housing System
If you don't feel like fighting for the moment, there are some nice leisure activities you can partake in around Olyndale. Buy furniture for your personal house, grow some nice plants or go fishing at the river.
You can also hire house sprites in your house to help you increase the rarity of minerals, elements, fossils, embers and other useful things.

No Pay to Win!
Buy the game to enjoy all the content. Get vanity items such as costumes, pets, and mounts in Loot Orbs through either daily quests or with level ups. And Deluxe or Ultimate Editions include Expanded Inventory (for each new character) as well as Pets and Mounts already!

PvP Modes
Play 3 vs 3 or set up your own PvP rules with the challenge pass in a Customized Battle. Play 1 vs 1, 5 vs 5 or even irregular matches like 1 vs 3 etc. Your options are unlimited,

NEW: Horde Mode
Alternatively, you could team up in a group of three to five players to beat Horde Mode, a dungeon with ten waves of monsters and bosses that try to destroy the Soul Crystal that you must defend to the death!

EU and US Servers
Germany- and US-based servers, further locations might be added at a later stage according to player demand

Multilanguage support
Current version includes fully localized texts in English, German and Spanish.
