Welcome to Xerazx-OTS Summer 2014 Update. This update is a result of your feedback also a continuous and extensive effort we putted into the server for the last few months, it will look pretty big news article but it could not be optimized more than this due to the variety of the changes. Within this update we are changing the server structures and reworking its base, starting from new players Hunting, Quests, in Game Systems, and of course PvP Improvements.

New Players Hunting & Questing System
Within this update we are changing the core hunting system for new players and how the server is introduced to them, we also trying to eliminate the Macro hunting for new players where they were repetitively doing the same task to rebirth up with least amount of fun. However, we have mainly reworked the hunting room spawns and expanded them probably 10 times wider monsters areas, also these new player areas are now Non-PvP. One more thing, for players who are less than 800 rebirths their rebirth is pretty easier than the higher stages, so we found that we have to add a new in game command to perform a rebirth for them !rebirth. Please head to our previous article if you'd like a deeper dive into these changes. Last but not least, we also have optimized and changes the quests room and it's rewards.
- New Quest 100 Rebirth : Admin manarune
- Admin Manarune Upgrader quest has been delayed to 350 rebirth instead of 100.
Current Spawn Improvements
Next, we are upgrading the current hunting spawns, some of the areas received an increment into the amount of monsters in addition of decrement to spawn interval, and other areas received map extensions!
- Herana Ground (Vulcongra) at the crystal base has been upgraded with more monsters, also spawn interval has been speeded up by 25 second instead of 60.
- Zerana (Yielothax) ground has been expanded by adding a second floor to it.
- Added more Cliff Stridders to Herana at the crystal base, also Cliff Stridders are no longer immune to energy damage.
- Moronia has received map extension by adding a fully lower floor to it.
- Hulks land is our new island at Crystal base for 500+ players, a pretty wide and big hunting ground for this player stage, speak to Commander Stone NPC to visit it today!
- Demostar is the waited hunting ground for players who are higher than 1220 Rebirths, a new mighty monsters island which is relayed on Team Hunting for killing monster capabilities and experience sharing.
- Eternize is no longer accessible through crystal base commander stone NPC, now it has moved to Captain Karlos Ship.
Fishing System is a brand new system into the server, unlike your traditional fishing, Xerazx-OTS fishing brings you Mighty Monsters and in Game valued one's, be prepared! These monsters once fished can be captured using Magical Jar and you can spawn them for only once on your call. There's a collection of possible fishing monsters each of them has it's unique behaviour and power but they are united at giving high amount of experience and decent loots.

In response to your requests, we have added the promised Task System. Task System is managed by Task Manager NPC (can be found at Temple and Hunting Room), there are plenty of in game tasks, for every rebirth stage there will always be a different task for you, tasks are daily and have both experience and items rewards, so make sure not to miss any of your daily tasks.
Advanced Tip: Upgrading your weapon from "Gnomerrow NPC" at the crystal base, makes your task much easier to be done also speed the process of doing it by almost 35%.
Cast System allows you to Stream and Spectacle other players while they are playing, from now you will be able to share and show off your gaming experience in Xerazx-OTS with other players without any restrictions, whether you want to initiate a public or private stream, both options are available.
- !cast on: a command which allows you to start streaming.
