Azure Server - public Test!

as promised before we are experimenting with moving GoE to a cloud-server architecture to improve input delay and overall responsiveness. We have started this process a while ago but ran into difficulties and could not make it for Launch, however we are still looking into it!

As the first results are promising we are looking for some brave souls to join us on this crusade and test the game on the cloud setup until Sunday 22nd October and then filling out this survey:

How to access the Azure server:

- Edit the “hosts” file of your Windows (in the folder: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc) using -Notepad++ ( )
- Add the following line (inside the quotation marks) at the bottom of the file:
- Save the file in Administration mode or it will not work
- Start Guardians of Ember as you normally would
- Check if the name of the server is “TestWorld1-Azure”
- Once you want to switch back to the original server please remove the last line

Please note that the Cloud Server location is currently only Europe, so the best comparison is between the European servers and Azure or for that matter for people from Europe. We may consider a US Cloud Server test as a next step.

Please do not distribute or upload any video footage or images displaying Azure test gameplay online. Please understand that this is not done with the aim of stifling discussions and opinions, but rather to avoid possible future confusion and the misdirection of viewers as the Azure server is still having issues and not fully optimized. That being said, players are actively encouraged to share their feedback and opinions on Guardians of Ember’s official channels such as the Steam Forum or Discord.

Fishing Event Round 2!


The server is back up and running and the event is running. Have fun! :)

Hello Immortals!

Servers will go offline today at 14:00 CEST to make arrangements for this weekend’s fishing event. We will also be spawning a vendor with whom you can exchange any character bound Equestrian buffs for account bound versions. You will need these account bound versions of the buff later on, so strike the iron while it’s hot!

Like last week’s fishing event you will have the chance of catching the following items:

- Equestrian
- Book of Teleportation
- Ampulla of Experience
- Guild Rubies
- Flawless Melting Stone

The event runs from later today until 10:00 CEST on Monday 23.10.2017. Don’t forget to keep hold of those Equestrian buffs, you will definitely need them later on!

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.
