Latest News

Tomorrow, with save server we will release some important tweaks. First of all we decided to slightly improve our bot verification by adding few restrictions for us. Checking player without white skull or located in deposit will be just impossible. Mentioned changes contain also few features which should help us in verification process.

From other hand it is time to close Halloween Event 2018. Unfortunately, Screwou and other terrifying monsters as well as Melanie Bluebell and her wise cat will disappear for few months. Hope they will return in next year once again! It also means that receiving Halloween souvenirs for using premium cards will be disabled.

Upcoming save server will bring also few small fixes or improvements, including:
- changed effect of fortification
new description: Fortification is an ability of paladins, allowing them to increase their maximum health by 20% as well as negating 8% of received damage, in exchange however reduces the maximum mana by 15% and the melee skill by 7. It has a cooldown of 4 minutes.

- changed effect of increased yield
new description: Increased Yield is a combined ability of marksmen and barbarians, allowing them, after the marksman supported the barbarian, to make the entire party of the marksman spend 25% less mana when casting spells for 3 minutes. In addition it increases the entire party of marksman critical hit chance for 50% for the next 40 seconds. It has a cooldown of 7 minutes.

- lowered by 15 percentage points training rewards for collect tasks,
- correct rounding of fees for black skull removal,
- fixed pyromancer's invisble,
- improved stats of flame tongue, golden axe, Zanaato, ancient sylvan hammer and volcanic mace.

Happy playing,

It's time to start a sage application process to gather some new sages to assist players with questions and problems ingame and take part in private test servers. We're highly in need for some PvP sages, preferably on Novus. If you play non-pvp you're also welcome, of course. If you have any desire to become a sage, read through this thread and send in your application!

The duty of a sage is quite simply to help players, both new and old, especially in the Support channel. Sages do not hold any other powers besides their highlighted text in the ingame Support channel. Of course occasional private test servers are held, where sages can participate. Read more about sages in the Game Manual.

What we require from all sages is good English, good knowledge of the game itself and a desire to help people out. Also note that we will not consider players with notable criminal records for this position.

To apply for sage position send an e-mail to [email protected] answering the following set of simple questions:
- How long have you played Zezenia Online?
- How often and on what game worlds do you play Zezenia?
- In a range from 1 to 10, how well do you think you know Zezenia?
- In a few words, what would you change in Zezenia?
- Who are you? (tell briefly about yourself, things such as where you are from)
- What/which characters would you like to have the sage status on?

Set the subject to "Sage Application" for fast processing. We will respond to all sage applications within 1 week. If you are already a sage and would like to have sage status on a new character, you can send an e-mail about that too.

Thanks to all participants and good luck!

Today (8th November, 2018), we changed point 5 our Game Rules. The following change is necessary and specifically related to bot verification. Below, new changed text of rule #5.

Modifying the client software in any way, or using third-party software or hardware to gain an advantage over other players is forbidden. In addition, a Game Master, to remove his doubts, may appear and start a short and logical conversation, watch your player actions and movement while hidden, or utilize the bot verification process described here.

By logging to game or forum, you accept our newly changed Game Rules.

Have fun in Zezenia!

Zezenia Online 7.0 is here! This update contains a huge bunch of new content, class balancing, small tweaks and fixes. And of course, it precludes the opening of our new server. Read on for all the details!

As always, you must update your client. The game should automatically patch when connecting, or you can reinstall from the download page.

Steam users: please install the update from the site temporarily. We hope to get the update out on Steam as soon as possible.

The new update

The long-awaited update is finally released. You will find a complete changelog below, but here are some of the biggest changes:

First, death recovery has changed: from now on, you will only be able to purchase back 75% of your losses. We have restored the loss of blessing on death, and reduced the number of premium cards needed to purchase a blessing from NPC Alexander. When dying in the hands of an enemy in a guild war, you will lose 25% less experience, mana and skills than usual.

The defending skill formula for rangers and mages has been balanced, along with various spell tweaks. New quests, spells and items have been added for you to discover. Bosses have received new abilities to make fights more challenging.

Using premium cards to extend your premium time now yields extra rewards based on your active premium time. With more than 7 or 14 days active premium you will receive an extra 6 or 12 hours from each card. Additionally, using a premium card with more than 20, 40 or 60 active days will reward you with a small Halloween souvenir for a limited time.

This is just a taste of what's in the update. For the full list of changes, read on below!

The new server

The new PvP server Novus is opening on Wednesday October 31st, three days from now at 19:00 UTC. See the time for your location here.

You can create a new character in advance from your account page, so that you're ready to start playing right away. We have also lifted the account character limit to make sure that everyone can create a new character.

Don't miss it, and tell your friends! This is a great time to start playing.

The new administration

I'm excited to announce that GM Eden is joining our team as a Game Master and Community Manager. He will help us take care of daily business on the servers, but also work with the Zezenia community to make sure your voice is heard.

Zezenia wouldn't exist without the players, and we hope to entertain you for years to come, steering where you want to go. This update is the first step towards a fresh start, and we can't wait to see where it takes us.
