Epic Perfect World

Couple of questions

Hi everyone,
Before I start downloading the game, I was wondering if getting end game gear was way easier than in PWI and by that I don't mean being spoon fed but at least achievable in say 3 months with 6 hours gaming time. I really liked PWI and pvp but because PWI was such a P2W game, I couldn't be bothered playing it anymore. But recently I have decided to play again and would like to try a private server so I could just pvp. How is the population in this game? Are there many active players? Is everything pretty much the same as PWI except the currency?
Many thanks in advance,
-VHK

Hello  :smiley:

First off, we would love to welcome you to the best private server !!

EPW is nothing like PWI - in the sense of reaching your goals.  End game gear here on EPW is relatively easy to obtain and is available to EVERYONE, not like on PWI where you have to have a fat wallet to get the best stuff.

Leveling is easy but it takes a bit to level from 140 + to 150, but do not worry, there are many different ways EPW provide us to level quick.  Its a very well populated server with excellent players and a good community.  As it goes for everything in RL, there are some ill mannered people here ...you find them anywhere, so just ignore them.

Oh and end game gear, with 6 hours a day gaming time -  obtainable in less than four weeks, depends on how much time you actually going to put in.

I am sure there are many others that will comment on your question, so if I missed something important, be assured that you will get more input from other community members as well

Happy gaming and hope to see you soon  ;)

Hi VHK,
Welcome to EPW.

Short answer: Yes, the design of private servers is that the rates for exp/spirit/prestige/influence/coin are boosted, so you are able to reach endgame much sooner than PWI. I have been here for 4mths and I have 4 endgame characters and I'm a lazy player at times. Some people have many more.

This server is not a P2W server either. There is a donation option, but it's more to give yourself a boost and is welcome but by no means necessary.

As for population, Epic definitely has one of the largest p.server populations that I have seen. Many big and small factions, plenty of TW and PK, active staff, plenty of custom and automated events and active forums.

As for being the same as PWI, it is really quite different. We have a different currency system, custom gear, custom leveling, custom instances and several other differences. The best way to find out about these things is to visit our Guides section (http://epicpw.com/guides). That section has a guide for pretty much every game feature from gear to farming to class builds to leveling to pets/mounts/fash/flyers to the economy and much more, best place to start for new kids.

If you find yourself a little lost when you enter game, check for the EpwSupport chatroom in game. It's usually open and populated with GMs and supports who can help you out. Feel free to message me on forums if you have any other questions.

In summary, p.servers are definitely the place to be for PK, socialising and general playing, as opposed to putting your life savings or slaving your backside off into official.
Hope that answers your questions.

Welcome to EPW  :normal-8:

The above two have already pretty much answered everything you wanted to know, so no reason to repeat. If you ever need any help in game you can contact me from one of the characters in my signature.  ;) EPW is very friendly and helpful, but get ready for the few that aren't  :))

Leveling is even easier if you will vote every day (in every six hours)

here is a guide of how many leveling scrolls and sls(super level scrolls) you will need for 140-150. If you decide to donate, it will be even easier. I recommend donating, you will reach 150 in no time. But that's your business

--->dis mon

btw super level scroll costs 4 gold (I think)

Thanks for all the replies guys! I can tell that this is a way better community from the threads I've read so far compared to the one at PWI. Also what do you mean by custom gear? Do I create my own or do you mean gears that aren't in PWI? Also are there ranked gears? And one important question I forgot to ask, are all the skills the same as PWI? Are there new skills that are only available at Epic Perfect World?
I'm really looking forward to playing PWI again. I'll start the download tonight before I go to bed that way I can start in the morning :D

Welcome to Epw. :>
There's rank 8, not 9 though. And yes, all the skills are the same. o;
And uhm for the custom gear, pretty sure most of it if not all is in Pwi lol, so it wouldn't be making customs. c:
I'm so bad at trying to remember things at 3 am. Forgive me. Hue

First of all Welcome to EPW

We do have rank 8 but no rank 9. By custom gear we mean that our very talented Admin Agatio has edited gear with custom stats to fit the server. Rank 8 reforge is, of course,  completely customized by the players.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to PM a GM or Support member. Good luck and Happy Gaming

What I mean by custom gear is that 1) as Lolly said, we don't have any Rank 9 at all 2) Your usual PWI gears such as TT or OHT gear isn't used. The only gear that we used that is related to PWI is Rank 8 Recast, which is your usual end game gear here.

Since we have a level cap of 150 (as opposed to PWI's 105?), there is a need for newly developed gear to suit these levels as well as to create the best balance between classes for PVP. We have some talented people on staff, who have created one of the best custom servers.

For info on EPW's custom gear, try these links:
- Gear/Accessories/Weapons: http://epicpw.com/guides/gearsweaponsaccessories-guide/
- Rank 8 Recast: http://epicpw.com/guides/rank-8-recast-guide/
- Endgame Accessories: http://epicpw.com/guides/dragonchild%27s-scale-warsong-belt-cube-necklace/
- Supreme Robe: http://epicpw.com/guides/tm-99-runs/

It might seem like a lot of info and work, but it really doesn't take too long at all. I find it quite enjoyable, compared to other servers where gear is all but given to you and I'm bored after a month.

^_^

I believe there are some skills that are nerfed. Sage barb hp buff for example but i don't know a list and its only a select few skills. This was the first ps i ever played and i haven't found 1 i enjoyed more yet. It is by far better then pwi.

Welcome first of all ^^ to EpicPW

There are a few skills as was mentioned that require some attention, specially for Psy's.
The Soul's skill are not able to be level 11 for balance purpposes.
The Spheres can not be refined also to keep the balance in PvP

Mystics also had a reduction on the Absorb Soul skill to deal less damage than in PWI

All the changes we make are for balance purpposes, even if it fails sometimes cuz we need to test them while watching real PvP between players and factions. All in all, we try to keep it balanced  :-\

anything else you need to know dont hesitate on spamming a GM  >:D
