Welcome to AXClassic Online!

These forums support the "[PROJECT AXCLASSIC] The Rathe Server", where you are welcome to come and play.
Project AXClassic is a blend of old school game play with original and custom content.
AXClassic carries the original EQBOTS code, and is still worked on by original and new coders.
Our goal here is to try and bring you back to a time where your heart was in the original (classic) zones, and places like Butcherblock and South Karana were in your thoughts and dreams.
Only this time, you'll have that "prefect group" you wanted with you at all times.
With EQBOTS, you'll be able to go anywhere in the game, build impressive raid groups, and take on the toughest raid bosses.
You'll be going places that were never possible when you played before.

Will be down for a few hours today.

We plan to run the Xmas event same as usual, also will be handing out the free "SoW" earrings to level one players on New Years, together with the New Years event. Earring event usually runs for about a week. You will get the item and possibly a few more items, when your level one character hails Champion Darkwater on or after January first.
This will happen on Rathe Server.
No Ladder reset for now
Sat Nov 30, 2013 8:54 pm by angelox
Since there are no level sixty-fives yet in the Ladder - we'll let it run for at least another six months.
I do plan on running events on around December 25th through January 7th. One to look for is the SoW earring the Ladder NPC (Champion Darkwater) will be handing over to the new level 1 characters that start during that period.
The push will be for players to start new characters, so look for more events during around the turn of the year.

Hope you guys find the time to go see them. They also could use a few "likes" comments and subscribtions
SirensBane Server restarted with some changes
Sun Sep 22, 2013 7:49 am by angelox
Now hosted by Threeflies over in England;
On SirensBane server: Changed bot spawn limits to enable a full group by level 20 - player gets a new bot at start, then a bot is flagged every 5 levels (tell 20).
SirenesBane used to have a limit of 1 bot per 10 levels, but considering how hard it is with little bot help(on an AXClassic database), it's been changed.
SirensBane is an attempt to get as close as possible to classic EQ, from within the AXClassic database. It has no expansions enabled, and all the items should be "old school" only.
Still needs work, but very playable
Forums back again

Took me long enough!
Had to roll back a few days in posts, so if you see your post missing, just re-post it.
Server Status page will be back and working tomorrow, when I move the login server back to the web server machine. Game servers are not affected by this anyway (all up and running)
Server down for HD replacement
Tue May 07, 2013 7:13 pm by angelox
I have taken down the Rather server today for hard disk replacement - This includes new OS installation and the whole works.
The old hard disk has been acting up, and don't want to wait for it to totally shut down (then I can't transfer data).
Should be finished by tomorrow.
Bot spawning timer changes
Tue Mar 05, 2013 12:26 pm by angelox
#Bot Spawn, SpawnGroup, and SpawnRaid timer-delays will be reduced to 5 and 10 seconds in non combat zones.
Current non-combat zones are Bazaar, Nexus, PoK, and PoT.
Reasons for timer-delays in spawning bots are two;
1- Try and damper exploits during game play.
2- Since spamming these commands consecutively will cause random zone crashes, the non-combat zones are reduced to a minimum so players can use these for swapping bots an gear. Hopefully, the 5 and ten second delay will be enough.
Ladder Will Reset New Years 2013
Sun Dec 30, 2012 9:43 am by angelox
We start this a day early (New Years eve).
Also the New Years random Moonstone event will be running, so you have a chance to by pass a few of the bot-gate quests.
The event should last at least a year (like the current event did), so we should all have plenty of time to accomplish it.
Remember, ladder will only accept characters made tomorrow or after, and your name will not show on the ladder listing tell you get past level 3.
All GM accounts are blocked from this event.
Login Server changed
Wed May 30, 2012 8:29 pm by angelox
I just ported the EqEmu login server code over to AXClassic, and is up and running. Everything has been customized to our account needs, so nothing is changed as far as accounts, ports, etc.
If you have any problems, please post. I'm hoping this fix was for the better.
Also, as a follow up on the The Rathe Ladder Server and its changes to Najena Server: Najena Server has been discontinued (due to no interest ), and ladder changes reverted back to Rathe - This was done a long time ago, just posted in case you hadn't noticed.
We are working on another server which will be more "classic-like", with features like no expansions , expansion-items or anything expansion related (stay tuned for this).
