it seems we're in major lack of good private server's latly, the reason is becoz we got too many "newb" owners who decide to open a server with no clue to what the KO players needs.
we had 5 farm private servers opening this month, non of them survived longer then just few days cause of corrpution, bad drop rates, bad upgrade rates, lack of gm's.
so befor another "newb" owner decide to open a server here's some info about how it should look like, this is for a farm server:
lets start with beginner gear -:
-1st class armor +4/hp/dex/str(depends on class)
-1st class weapons+ doesn matter
drops & rates -:
-worms -: low class armor+4/5, low class weapons+8
-wolfs -: low class weapons+8, bus at 20% rate
-cards -: bus/bes at 40% droprate
-dk/ak -: full plates+3 at 25% droprate
-harpys -: mirage dagger+3 at 15% droprate
-trolls -: glaves+3 at 15% droprate
-apos -: totamic club/salamandar staff+3 at 15% droprate
-golems -: chitins at 25% droprate
-dark mare -: shells/shards/ii/ms/raptors etc at 35% chance for one of them to drop.
-adding new mob into bowl that spwn every 3hours that drops 1500/300 scrolls at 100% droprate for 1 sc.
those are the importent ones, rest like myko drops..
-1500/300/teleport scrolls can be also purchased on NPC for slightly high price to keep them unique on PUS but still be avaible for non donators.
upgrade rates -:
with bus -:
100% to +3
(mid class scrolls same % but will only work for mid class items!)
name change scroll
class chance scroll
nation transfer scroll
(can add master items week after the offical opened)
now few more tips -:
Must advertise alot 2 weeks befor u open the beta!, beta should be opened btw 3-5 days befor launching the offical, all bugs must be fixed and its crucial to open beta/offical on the time u setted or ull lose community. dont even consider advertising/opening the server befor u got everything fixed, dedi server online, enough trustables gm's.
and most importent, dont go corrputed! ppl ingame can easly reconize when some1 who didnt exp got a lvl boost, or didnt work items and got unmatched items to his performence, once the players even consider the gm for corrpution they will quit.
after 4 years of farm private servers expirience thats my conclusion's for a succsful farm server,
if u agree just +1 this.
