How does Olvia server work?

26 posts in this topic

You get 200% xp for 30 days? Is that the extent of it? And then can you transfer off Olvia to the World server?

Wait... by Olvia server do they mean Olvia channel?  I seem to remember that's how it was on KR server, its a special channel with permanent 200% xp bonus for 30 days.

No, in the patch notes it says Server, they need to change it to Channel

Starting this Friday (Dec. 2nd) we will open the Olvia Servers.

  • The Olvia servers are special servers that provide 200% EXP for new and returning players on characters over level 30.  To enter these servers you must have a new account (Made on or after Dec. 1st with the Opening of the New World!) or have been absent from the game for 30 days.  Players who meet these requirements will be able to login to these servers.  Please note there are a few key points about these new servers.

    • Olvia Servers do not have world bosses

    • Olvia Servers do not have horse races

    • Olvia Servers do not participate in sieges or node wars

    • Olvia Servers do not participate in the Red Battlefield

    • After 30 days you will not be able to access the Olvia servers.

    • The Bonus EXP from the Olvia Servers will not stack with other EXP Bonus Events.

They are channels. You can see them on the list when you log in. So you will be able to transfer, yes.

This totally sucks since i returned only a few days before this and it was only for a few hours to try out the ninja and help my pal learn a bit.  I got really screwed over... I am a little miffed they should make this accessible for all new toons.

If thoses devs didnt setup such dumb #ss progression, but a "smoother" one instead they wouldnt have the need to setup all thoses "catch up" mechanic.

That game make no sense most of the time.

They really need to fix this so us newer players who desperately need help catching up can use this channel. I bought the game a week ago, I should be able to use this. Please @CM_Aethon can you look into this for us?

I have a friend who was offline for 200 days. He logged in for the first time 12 hours before maintenance, it'll be a bummer if he can't access those channels :/

Those channels should be changed to work such that anyone can go as long as they don't have a level 58 or higher character on their account.  Once you hit 58 you're out.  No other limitations.

So if I have this right, I haven't been active for awhile so if I make a whole new character I have to level it to 30 first then I can join the Olvia server.

Aw... That's a bummer. Was wondering why I'm basically new and still couldn't access those channels. I started playing less than a week ago or so, a few final days right before the merge, guess I screwed myself by not waiting a little. :|

Its really stupid to limit catch-up servers like that. It should be "kick after reaching lvl 58" and "can youn if your family doesn't own a lvl 58+ char".

Ah i shot myself in the foot with this one lol.... I returned to BDO so i can prepare a few items and silver ready for the Dark Knight. 

Agree it should be like once your specific toon(s) reach lvl58 thats when the character(s) are barred from entering

I've only been playing the game for 35 days and I only just now learned about the Olvia server... probably 5 days too late to even use it. Well, I guess I screwed myself there. They should really have more documentation about this for new players.

Time to log out for 30 days :D 

TBH, it isn't worth logging out for 30 days unless you simply can't be bothered to get on. Sure, you get double xp, for characters over 30 but you can only reach 59.999 on those servers. Then you have to think about all the time you could have had workers crafting or farming mats. In the end it just isn't worth it and you would be significantly better off just playing on the regular servers. :/ If it gave 2x skill, life skill, combat xp, drop rate and 2x worker returns then it would probably be a different story but spending 30 days off only to get 60 days worth of xp for 29.999 levels, nope. (Not to mention you can't do World Bosses there...) Yea, people can switch at anytime during the period but what is the point if you aren't going to play on those servers?
