Olthoi Play Exemplar.jpg

Introduced in the 11th anniversary update, Olthoi Play is a system designed to allow players to jump right into the higher level Player vs. Player action without the need to spend vast amounts of time leveling and collecting gear. The downside is that Olthoi Play is highly restricted.

To take part in Olthoi Play, you must create a new character and select one of the two Olthoi Breeds. Olthoi Soldiers are melees that attack with piercing damage, and Olthoi Spitters are mages that attack with acid damage.

Rules and Restrictions


  • Olthoi are permanently set to Player Killer (red) status, regardless of server.
  • Olthoi cannot listen to any regular chat channels. Instead, all Olthoi are in the Olthoi channel, usable with the /o command. Olthoi can hear other olthoi in open chat (/say), however they cannot hear nor be heard by humans.
  • If your account is not at least 15 days old, which is determined by the oldest character on the server you have chosen, you will be restricted to the Olthoi Island.
  • Most Commands do not work for Olthoi.
  • No matter where an Olthoi logs out at, when they log back in they will be back on the Olthoi Island by the Olthoi Queen.
  • Olthoi use a special currency, Pitted Slag, to buy supplies and upgrades. They earn pitted slag from killing players and creatures.
    • Each time a player is killed he is less likely to drop pitted slag. This chance goes back up with time.
    • Players don't drop slag if they have vitae.
    • Only players over level 150+ (estimated) will drop slag.
  • Olthoi drop top tier loot when they die, but not if they have vitae.
  • Players cannot go to Olthoi Island if they have Vitae.

Character Statistics

  • Olthoi start at level 180 with preset attributes and skills. For full listings of these stats, see below.
  • Olthoi cannot gain experience, and will therefore always be level 180 and always have the same attributes and skills.
