  • Resources bug fixed

    Hey guys!
    We’ve figured out the problem with the re-spawn of resources. Once you’ve edited the coordinates on the map where the resources were, there appeared a great number of the same tiles. That generated some bugs, so the amount of the resources collected was infinite. Now, we’ve fixed that and only one tile will remain. You can obtain up to 25 ordinary resources (less if it’s colored) from one tile. The respawn time is 30 minutes.

    If you lack resources, add some new coordinates on the map.

    Let us remind you that skill leveling has been greatly increased recently, which makes it much easier to train your skills, including crafting skills.

  • Updates

    Updates:

    1. We’ve worked on Bowcraft/Fletching skill. So, here’s what’s new about it:
      A. You can’t use Dagger on Logs anymore.
      B. We’ve added a new item for the skill, Fletcher Tools, which you can create with Tinker Tools. How to make it: Tinker Tools – Ingots – Tools – Fletching Tools.
      C. This tool is crafted with a certain number of charges depending on the ores you use and its charges will be depicted on the tool. This means that the tools will disappear after they run out of charges. For now, it’s the only skill that requires a tool with the necessary charges to craft it.
      D. There is a new menu with a description of items.
    2. NPC Mutant. We’ve lowered its speed to a reasonable level. We’ve also lowered the speed of movement for regular NPCs, so they are much slower than characters riding their animals.
    3. The number of ingots you get by melting all kinds of ore has doubled. (1 Iron Ore = 2 Iron Ingots)

    As usual, all the updates will apply after the restart.

  • Classic UO Launcher

    Recently we’ve received some questions and some of them considered the opportunity to use classic UO client. We’ve set the “Classic UO Launcher” on our server. You can find some useful info about its setting by clicking on the link below:
    https://ru.wiki.zuluhotel.com/home_page:uoclassic.
    Given the fact that you can’t update the game files using this client yet, there is no way for us to provide any scripts for it so far 🙂
    Besides, you can install the game on your mobile phone using Classic UO Launcher. The instructions are here:
    https://ru.wiki.zuluhotel.com/home_page:mobileuo

    Reminder:
    You will still have to update Zuluhotel game files via Orion Launcher. Don’t hesitate to upgrade them while launching the game client.

    Taking into account that previously there were some troubles while using the Classic UO Launcher, we kindly ask you to report the errors and bugs in Discord:
    https://discord.com/channels/707526080117997608/707922885804818483 (ask-for-help)
    In the nearest future, UOC will be added to the file update and will be installed on your computer without any of your assistance.

    The reward in Zulu Coins is guaranteed.

    Send the videos directly to @occiderevultus (Telegram chat), e-mail mkd.miron@yandex.ru or upload them to Youtube using the name of our server in the title. E.g: “Zuluhotel.com Arms Lore Guide (from Lord British)”

  • New Year is time for gifts!

    New Year is time for gifts!

    The main Zulu Christmas tree has been installed on the main square. Santa Claus left presents for everyone under the tree.
    There you can find everything you need: treats and GM weapons or armors 🙂
    But in addition to items, in the presents, you will find a set of perks for a week: looter and premium. Additionally, if the character is a crafter, then the perks are miner /missersmith /lumberjack. If the character belongs to another class, he/she will receive a looter perk.

    Besides, Santa Claus forgot his bag. By clicking on Santa’s sack each player will receive several GDs as a gift.

    Also, Lord British asked the mages to enchant one of the small Christmas trees, which can also give you gifts from the king.

    From Dec 25, 2021 to Jan 10, 2022 the respawns are doubled.
    Happy holidays and have a fun game!

  • Lifestream

    Given the fact that the cool-down of lifestream lasts 60 seconds, the effect of this enchantment won’t spread on friendly creatures in a way of healing, stamina and mana. You can still resurrect your friends though.

    Have a great game!

  • Here is what’s new since the last restart

    Here is what’s new since the last restart:
    1) We’ve added a portal to the new lands. They aren’t completely inhabited yet, but you can go ahead and take a look, and maybe mark some runes.

    2) Healing protection now affects healing with magic fish. We hope Rangers will be pleased.

    3) Since the amount of Zulu Coins that drop from mutants has changed, they obtained protection from necro magic and ordinary magic up to the seventh magic circle. Be cautious.

    4) We’ve slightly improved the intelligence of the casting mobs. Now they can come from up close and heal themselves if necessary.

    5) After using the hiding skill, a character can become stealth for a couple of steps before using the Stealth skill. The number of steps the character can do in stealth depends on class bonuses and how much the Stealth skill is trained.

    6) We’ve significantly improved ourselves in creating customed GM armor. So very soon we will present new opportunities. 🙂

    7) Only exceptional items that don’t have scripts on them can be enchanted. No target or action is shown after the double-click.

    Enjoy the game you all!

  • Here is what we’ve got new

    Here is what we’ve got new in the latest game update.

    1) Damage from mobs in a close-range fight is lower now.
    2) Archer’s damage is lowered too (tainted one).
    3) The effect on damage of mobs’ stats is limited to 600 max. Thus when a mob becomes a mutant, the increase in stats on damage has a limited impact.

  • Celestial leather upgrade

    Several changes have been made to Celestial leather. Now it gives you the following protection:
    Holy Protection,
    Physical protection,
    Free action.

    Enjoy the game!

    c. Click “Check for updates”;

  • All the characters will be restored as they were

    It might be too early for Christmas, but we’ve already got presents for you. After the restart, all the characters will be restored to the way they were before. You don’t have to use the red stone anymore and wait. Let’s celebrate here and now.
    To use the new game contents you still need the “Update” perk.

  • Today, 22nd October 2021 at 7 p.m. CET Zuluhotel opens the doors for its residents!

    Hell is gone and Heaven’s here!

    Today, 22nd October 2021 at 7 p.m. CET Zuluhotel opens the doors for its residents!

    Everyone is required to download the client!
    https://zuluhotel.com/update/Zuluhotel_en.exe

    Entering the game you will see that all the skills have been wiped, but no worries! In Britain, there is a red stone near the main bank using which every day a part of your skills and str/dex/int (up to 150 only) will be returned to you. This way to fully regain the character’s skills 150 each you need to enter the game for 30 days (30 usages of the red stone). This decision was made in order to not to give any prerogatives to experienced players over the new players, who will need approximately the same time to improve their character themselves. The speed of skills leveling was significantly increased.

    Unfortunately, when switching to POL we weren’t able to save your items and they were removed.
    We added lots of new content to the game that only new characters may use. Old characters have to purchase the “Update” perk once to have the opportunity to enjoy the cool new stuff. The price of the perk is 30 EUR and it can be bought in your personal account a bit later. Some time after the shard opening payment required services will be unavailable, again so as not to give any benefits over the ones who don’t use these kinds of services while playing due to religious reasons.

    So come on let us entertain you!

  • Hello, our old friend!

    Haven’t you been waiting for us? Here we are! This winter there are lots of heart-warming nights among friends for you.

    A special new season of inseparable fun on Zuluhotel starts 22nd October 2021!

    Your old buddies are waiting for you in our Discord.
    https://discord.com/invite/5A9DGUDhnk

    The whole summer we’ve been working on a major update just for you. So, here is what we came up with:

    1) We switched our server to the latest version of POL 100×64, which makes the data processing rate of the shard several times faster, therefore improved the general sustainability. Also, this gives us more opportunities to add new cool stuff to the world.

    2) We are now using a newer version of the client, switching from 4.0.0 to 7.0.91

    3) Plenty of new decorative items, weapons, armor, clothes, ridable animals, and mobs were created and added to the world.

    4) Now there is a new spell book Holly Book, as well as different looted items to protect you from it.

    5) AI of the higher mobs was modified. They became stronger and smarter, thus they can easily kick your ass even in a game of checkers.

    6) Pretty much all of the classes were reconsidered according to the players’ requests and wishes. Long story short, there is an impressive number of the classes’ updates, as well as of the whole shard itself. Feel free to take a look at them on our website in the News section.
    https://zuluhotel.com/2021/09/27/hey-all-lets-see-what-weve-got-for-you/

    We hope that this new season your most sacred wishes will come true.
    Best wishes to all of you.

  • Huge update!

    To keep your heart warm this autumn, we’ve prepared a huge update for you. Its final testing is now in process and it will be uploaded to the server in a few weeks.
    The new server will bring us more opportunities. Unfortunately, there is no chance to save the items after we switch to the latest core version. We are almost definitely sure that items will have to be wiped after the update.

  • Testers needed!

    As you might already know, we are working hard in order to switch to POL100 and a new client as well. We are looking for testers to help us find bugs, a great number of which are definitely always present in such a difficult process.

    There are no specific requirements to become a tester. You just have to play on a test-server as you usually do and report to us about anything that doesn’t work or doesn’t work the way it should.

    To get all the necessary files to access the test-server send a message to @OccidereVultus in Telegram.

  • Event: Ghostly Labyrinth of Consciousness

    Event: Ghostly Labyrinth of Consciousness
    Starts on May, 28 at 9.00 p.m.CET

    Phantom has decided to return to our world and make the brave defenders go through another test. The ones who helped him collect his belongings and whoever wishes to participate will dare to compare their strength.

    The Phantom created a labyrinth visible only to his eye in his cave. Ordinary men can’t see it. The Ghost kicked the spiders out of the cave and removed some traps, so it became more intense.

    The cave is protected by him from killing and theft.

  • Search quest: The Mystery of a Cave Phantom

    Search quest: The Mystery of a Cave Phantom
    Start on May, 7 at 9 p.m. CET

    Treasure hunters, who decided to try themselves in a new field of gold-digging, have encountered some troubles in a cave. That “trouble” has scared them so much, that they took off abandoning all their equipment. The trouble is a phantom, which is hiding in the cave, guarding it. Solve an obsolete murder committed there.

    Help in finding the truth about the death, so that the ghost lets go of this place and would stop frightening anyone who comes here.

  • Updates

    Hey guys!
    We keep working on maintaining game balance and removing bugs 🙂

    Updates:
    1) We got Lamas back that you can ride again.

    2) The healing effect from using bandages starts sooner for healing poisoning and resurrection. Although, the intervals between the uses of bandages remain the same.

    3) The delay between meditation sessions is 10 sec now. Stay still to meditate, otherwise, it won’t bring any result.

    4) Casts:
    -Rising Fire hit with one more powerful pole of fire instead of two (the power of it is equal to 2 poles). Thus, the bonus from books won’t be doubled during each fire pole.
    -Depending on the level of poison, Cure / Arch Cure requires different Magery levels. Poison of 7th level won’t be cured easily and you’ll need to put on items additionally to Magery.
    -Earthquake’s radius is decreased to 12 tiles around the mage.

    5) Blackrock weapon
    -burns 100 mana points when hitting
    -impossible to poison new Blackrock weapons (only old ones are left poisoned)
    -doesn’t burn the attacker’s mana (!)

    6) Damage from Assassin weapon is increased. Previously x1.25, now x1.30.

    7) Amount of Bard’s and Mage’s mana has been changed:
    – Mages – 25
    – Bards – 20

    8) The drop chances of bows and crossbows among all the weapons are increased.

    9) When skills are added upon items are now fixed (we mean 2 skills simultaneously).

    10) Items + int give magic efficiency bonus. 1 int = 0.3 efficiency.

    11) Max dodge on a character is lowered to 10. When having no race is 20, with a race picked 30.

    12) Hunters have no level penalties. Now a character receives bonuses only for mobs, but nothing positive or negative for players.

    13) Mages have -4% of physical protection per level, but the old penalties are removed.

  • Transfer hunting points between players

    Hey all!

    If you remember, you can transfer your hunting points from one player to another using this command .deedhuntpoints amount .

    The command works for the ones who have a premium account. This means you can sell hunting experience!

  • Here is some news from the world of balance.

    Here is some news from the world of balance.

    After a long time of thinking about the main weapon of a Thief, it was decided that’s poison.
    Since all classes have their own main weapon and there is no way to protect yourself from it, it is wise to make 6 lvl Thieve’s poisoning impossible to protect from too.

    Thus, no matter how much protection you have from poisoning you will be affected. That will help Thives both in PvE and PvP.

    Although, to prevent Thieves from using only BlackRock weapons it can’t be poisoned.
    Enjoy the game and stay cautious when a Thief wants to kill you 🙂
    P.S.: Fishes, bandages, magic, and potions can still protect you, so it’s not “all bad” after all.

  • Search quest: All four corners of the world

    Search quest: All four corners of the world
    Starts on April, 30 at 9 p.m. CET

    The thieves who plundered King Wolfgang’s treasures have vanished in an unknown direction. The traces were lost on the coast and didn’t lead anywhere.

    The seafarers of Britain claim to have seen boats under black sails in the open sea.

    The newly-assigned king of Vikings Bron “Skull Crusher” Holster asks the brave defenders of Britain for help. Since the treasury is empty and Vikings have no fleet, they can’t do it on their own.

  • Latest updates

    Hey everyone!

    Given the fact that masks often froze on characters and were newby, it was decided to assign them to the same layer as aprons. Now you can wear one item at a time.

    Besides, mobs saw the characters using the enhancements and started using those too…So, depending on how smart and powerful the mobs are they will be able to use them too!

  • Search quest: The Bloody Return of Wolfgang

    Search quest: The Bloody Return of Wolfgang
    Starts on April,23 at 9 p.m. CET

    Wolfgang, who came to the throne and commands the army of Vikings, decided to rule with “stick and carrot”. More often he would use “the stick” and sometimes it would lead to a bloody slaughter. Some of the Vikings’ villages agreed with his methods, but the confronting others deny that Wolfgang’s ruling tactics make any sense. The Confronting forces require your help in defending their villages from Wolfgang’s attacks. You have to find the way to his main settlement on a map, defeat his guards and Wolfgang himself.
