What will happen to the mistwalkers.co (MW) server?

It will close on June 1st, 2018. The current MW server is considered a beta for the new official licensed server (named Finvarra's Fortress) launching June 1st, 2018. The legacy server (named Despothes Grove (Legacy) will be kept in tact.


How can I gain access to my old realm account (legacy server)?

Email cs@rat-labs.com with all the details you can remember: login username, password, and character names, levels, etc… A customer service representative will try to find your account and will communicate with you via email if they are able to locate your account. They will also be able to reset your passwords. Note: There were periodic wipes made by Norseman Games so there may be a chance that your account no longer exists.


Who is Rat Labs?

Rat Labs, LLC was formed by existing Developers from the MistWalkers private server who wanted to legitimize their involvement with TRO development.


What will be different on the new server?

Everyone will start fresh. Some features that were popular in the beta server (MW) will be implemented in the new server. This new server is planned to be able to connect with a new client that is being developed in Unity or Unreal Engine 4 about late 2020. This will allow people to play on multiple platforms HTML5, iOS, Android, macOS, Linux, and Windows. The new client will include a modernization of graphics while maintaining the original look of the Realm Online.
