The Zezenia Online Public Test Server is now online! Download the test client here to get started. The Test Server is based on a snapshot taken earlier today, so all of your progress may not be reflected.

Please post your feedback and bug reports in this thread. Check the list of known issues below before posting.

The Bestiary


The newly added Bestiary details all monsters to be found in the world of Zezenia and serves as a personal collection. Killing a monster will unlock its bestiary page along with common stats & loot.

Avid beast collectors can work to familiarize themselves and ultimately master each monster, unlocking very rare loot along the way. Bestiary kills are shared between all players. Newly added Beast Collector, Beast Master & Beast Grandmaster achievements are earned by unlocking & mastering monsters in the bestiary.

The Bestiary can be opened from the new Library menu or using CTRL + B.

Monster Boosts are available for purchase in the bestiary using noble Zezenian coins. Options include a +25% experience boost, increased enraged & elite spawns and a monster health debuff.

Active boosts are shared with all players on the game world, and can be seen on login & from the Bestiary. Generous community members will receive thanks for their boost purchases!

New Eidos


The beginner town of Eidos and associated beginner quests has received a major overhaul. Discover a new old town of many hardships following a war with the mad wizard Bollahar. Some of the new quests are still a work in progress as we work on finishing touches.

Eidos houses have moved in the map and will lose their owners. As compensation, the current owners (at this time) of these houses will receive compensation and timed exclusive bidding rights. Your items will be moved to the depot.

Bandit Camps

New Bandit Camps have appeared across the map. Make your way to these outlaw encampments through the world map to clear them & loot their treasure.

Unfortunately crime is spreading across the lands and new encampments will appear in the future. The difficulty level of each camp will vary from low to high levels, with the first camps tailored towards beginners.

World Map Changes


Added new solo hunting spawns for Werebear (available now) & Mighty Magician Werebear (coming soon).
Added new islands: solo Geck'zah area & team Crabs & Unholy Dreadlords. (Coming soon)
Expanded Devil spawn.
Slightly expanded Dreadlord spawn.
Slightly expanded Chenoo spawn. (Coming soon)
