Sign-Up for ASCENSION Has Started

 ibians, the time has come to bid farewell to Tournaments! After more than two years, the final Tournament ASCENSION will mark the end of an adventure which brought us valuable experiences and insights.

This is your last chance to get hold of Tournament Coins so sign up for ASCENSION now! It will reward you with twice as many Tournament Coins as before the sunset.

A ticket for your Tournament character is necessary to participate

In ASCENSION, your XP and skills will progress much faster than on normal game worlds. Also, skill gain, Bestiary and area discovery will yield points. Make sure to read the rule and score set thoroughly. Killing certain creatures such as stonerefiners, cobra assassins and gazer spectres, just to name a few, will cost you a hefty sum this time: 50 points per creature will be substracted from your score. In addition, shared experience will be deactivated.

Keep in mind, that your playtime is always ticking down whenever you are online on your Tournament world. Once your daily playtime is depleted, you will be logged out of the Tournament and you can only log in again after the next server save. Once your total playtime is depleted, you will no longer be able to log in on the Tournament world. Please also note that if you log into a Tournament world and log out again before 120 seconds have passed, a total of 120 seconds will still be subtracted from your playtime.

All Tournament characters start with level 20, basic skills, and 20,000 gold on their bank account.

The golden warlord sword will be awarded to the winners.

The cups will go to the top 3 of each Tournament world.

Check out the Tournament page to find details about rules, score set and rewards for ASCENSION. The Tournament itself will run from April 06, 10:00 CEST, to April 13, 10:00 CEST.

Upon sign-up, you can select your Tournament world, your vocation and city to start in. More information can also be found in the Tournament FAQ entries.

When we announced the sunset of Tournaments last year, we already informed you about our rough plans in regards to Tournament rewards. Here is a recap with an updated approximate time horizon:

  • Tournament Coins will be removed from the game at an unspecified point of time in the future. Any Tournament Coins that have not been used by then will disappear. At the earliest, this will happen six months after the final Tournament, at the end of 2022, but it may also happen at a later point of time. Rest assured that we will announce this date in advance as soon as it has been determined.
  • After Tournament Coins have ceased to exist, rewards that are currently available for Tournament Coins in the Store will become purchasable by other means, e.g. Tibia Coins. This will not be the case for the dragon slayer outfit, though.
    • Outfits and mounts bought by other means will only be usable by the purchasing character, they will not be unlocked account-wide for all characters like their Tournament versions.
  • The remarkable dragon slayer outfit not only costs a large sum of Tournament Coins but also requires a player to achieve a top 3 rank in a Tournament. We aim to preserve its extraordinary status as best as possible but we also do not want to make the outfit completely unobtainable with the end of Tournaments. Therefore, at some point in the future, at the earliest in 2023, we will implement a demanding way to earn it ingame: The specifics have not been determined yet, but we can already say that it will only be obtainable through investing an enormous amount of time, dedication and effort, possibly in the context of special events or boss fights.
    • The ingame version of the dragon slayer outfit will only be wearable by the character which unlocked it. The Tournament version will remain special in that regard so only players who obtained the outfit through Tournaments can use it account-wide for all of their characters.

Let's send off Tournaments with a bang!
