About Us

Welcome to Venris

Venris is a Pre-renewal server that is meant to create a nostalgic, yet fresh experience for all players. We have created a semi low-rate server that expands on the hard work of the developers of the rAthena by enhancing gameplay while staying true to the original design of the game.

Server Summary

Venris uses a classic foundation for players to start their journey. Our research indicates that most of the major balancing changes occurred between beta and the Episode 12 release. That said, some balancing changes made in later episodes have been retroactively applied to our initial release for the purpose of providing players with consistency and familiarity in the function of specific items, skills, and cards as seen on other servers.

Nevertheless, we have considered key gameplay features when building Venris that we determined were necessary to balance and/or enhance gameplay and player experience. Such changes and considerations include:

  • A rework of the MVP cards Effect.
  • A rework of some effects of certains jobs such as gypsy and paladin.
  • An anti spam mechanism which won't harm the gaming experience for all non cheaters or non macro users.
  • Modifications to some features which is easy and available to learn in game.
  • Drop rates of specific items that are unnecessarily difficult to obtain that are used for quests to encourage NPC interaction and pave the way for an expanded quest system.
  • Additions of informational and flavor NPCs to make the game world feel “full” of actual meaningful NPCs that have value-added interactions with players.
  • Substantial rework of the zeny burn mechanism of some NPCs which will strongly help the foundation of the in game economy of Venris Server.

Our staff will continue to make changes to improve the game. We plan to continually polish the text you read in-game and balance the core mechanics of gameplay to adhere to our mission.

The other primary things Venris have taken include:

  1. If content is fun and stays true to the essence of the game, it is appropriate to consider such content for addition to Venris.
  2. Cash shops and other paid-for benefits will be extremely limited, if ever added as the purpose of the game should be play to win and not pay to win.
  3. All NPCs, items, mobs, and other content added to the game are subject to at least a high-level review before they are added to maintain overall consistency and balance in the game. Even official content is subject to review so that all aspects of the game are enjoyable.
  4. We promise to be professional. As the server owner, it is my job to create a welcoming environment that provides a source of fun for players. No favoritism or mistreatment of players by the Venris staff will be permitted and staff are expected to be helpful and responsive to all players.

A Little More on Server Balancing

While technically we are a 7/7/2 rate server, the changes to the balancing may at times feel a little faster than 7/7/2. We still expect players to have to commit a substantial amount of time to reach the max level, but we want to give players more options to reach that end goal.

Separately, we will be adding quests as time progresses, including class quests that will provide players making unique builds other viable means of leveling outside of grinding low level mobs. We want players to interact with each other and the in-game world. So, the addition of quests will provide unique opportunities for players to make the characters they want to make without the need for constant leeching or methods of gameplay that candidly are not very fun.

By demand of our players, some stuff may be adjusted and changed. this is gonna depend on the positive and building feedback from our beloved players. Toxic criticisms are not welcomed and often are highly bannable actions
