Introducing the new KangaWU Adventures server, a place to test your mettle and survive against the wilderness and gain some extra resources as you go.
KangaWU Adventures is a new server that you can travel to from the portal at Botany Bay on the main server – however there is a catch. You cannot take any items through the portal – including inventory items and equipped items – and when you die on this server, you will respawn back on the main server with no skill loss. When you take the portal to the adventures server, you will spawn at a random spot across the map and have to figure out how to survive, explore and gather before finding a way to sail across the border back to the main server. Anything that you have on you when you cross the border back to the main server will stay with you.
The adventures server does however pose a larger threat than the main server with increased spawn rates of aggressive creatures and you are unable to place a deed, so starting out will be a challenge in itself to survive to the point where you can reliably defend yourself. To help with this, a few changes have been made to foraging and rummaging to make things slightly easier. Foraging on tree tiles will give branches more often than before, foraging on grass tiles now have a chance to give rock shards as well as low quality iron rock, and rummaging on rock tiles now has a chance to give low quality steel as well as flint. It is suggested that you look up crude tools on the wurmpedia and how to use them to start from scratch.
For those that manage to survive the dangers of the adventures server, you will be rewarded by a higher rate of ores all across the map including glimmersteel and adamantine, some specially placed reward items in hard to reach places for the expert explorers, and a new ‘kill token’ item that you will receive from every creature killed on the server. These kill tokens scale to the difficulty of the creature you kill, and can be combined into a single token to save inventory space. If you manage to make it off of the server, you’ll be able to bring back all items and resources gathered from the adventures server for use back on the main server. Kill tokens will be able to be traded to a special merchant at Botany Bay down the line for prizes relevant to your kill token value.
So to recap: Empty inventory, take portal, don’t die, explore, gather, don’t die, find a way off the server without dying, claim rewards. Easy.
