    Search quest: The Treasures of Celestial Falcon
    Starts Jan, 26 at 7 p.m. CET

    The elite guards unit of Lord Charles Wales got attacked on the outpost where they have always trained. The gear, supplies, and treasures that had been gifted to the guards by Charles Wales were stolen.

    Since the guards can’t leave Lord Charles unprotected, they require your help.

    You have to track the thieves down according to the signs left on the ground from carrying the stolen goods. They didn’t do a good job in covering the tracks as they were in a big hurry.

  • x2 mobs event will take place every Sunday!

    On popular demand and since the event with x2 mobs re-spawn was a success, we’ve taken the decision to make it weekly!
    So every Sunday, starting from tomorrow there will be a wave of high mobs. x2 number of mobs and x2 their re-spawn speed.

    Also, the shard’s reboot will take place every 72 hours, not 42.

  • Snooping and Stealing skills adjustments

    Dear players,
    The world of Zuluhotel is wonderful and diverse because of its various unique features. However, it can’t withstand the global automatization present in everyday life.
    Given the fact, that many players use greatly-developed scripts to automatically steal the opponent’s items, we’ve decided to adjust the mechanics of Snooping and Stealing. That way there would be a certain chance or a bit of luck during Stealing and Snooping, on the other hand, it should make it impossible to have a major advantage in PvP battles with just using scripts.

    Updates:
    1. While Snooping the items that appear will have a different id, name, and image.
    2. When using the Stealing skill, a character must be “hidden” to steal.

    We really want to believe that making these changes will be enough to stop thefts during combats and there will be no need to remove these two skills completely.
    Enjoy the game!

  • Tournament 1×1 (Equipment is provided). Jan, 23 (Ended)

    Tournament 1×1(Equipment is provided).
    Saturday on Jan,23 at 7:00 pm CET:
    https://en.wiki.zuluhotel.com/tournaments:january2021:23.01.2021_tournaments_1x1_provided_gear._at_21-00_pm_moscow_time

    What’s changed in the system of given equipment in the 1×1 Tournament:

    Warrior vs – all classes =(Warrior) The protection for all elements have decreased from 3.0 to 1.5 (Freeaction – remains the same. Paralyze can not be combined with spellbook)

    Warrior vs – Mage =(Warrior) The protection for all elements have decreased from 3.0 to 1.0 (Freeaction – remains the same. Paralyze can not be combined with spellbook)

    Warrior vs Power Player= (Warrior) Platemail set has been removed.
    50 armor has been added to Robe (previously it was 105, 130 with a shield).
    Also, Lothian (that hits within 3 tiles) is replaced with a pike that hits within 2 tiles.

    Warrior – Thief = (Warrior) The pike is removed. Weapons with a shield remain.
    Thief – Warrior = (Thief) 10% Physical Protection has been added to the set.

  • It’s time for some news!

    It’s time for some news!

    The following updates will be applied after the reboot. Some of them you’ll notice right away, some things will change after some time. So, here they are:

    1. Warriors will no longer have a protection penalty (-0.2 per level)
    2. Adamant Dragons, Adamant Drakes and Mage Hunters Mutants will no longer re-spawn in the world.
    3. Higher mobs like Wyrms, Barlons, and Dragons have partially lost their necro protection. So, now it will be so much easier for mages to inflict damage by casting spells on them, especially with Kill cast.
    4. Wyvernstrike cast will inflict damage with Earth magic instead of Necro magic. Therefore, mages will have access to all the spells of Elementals (earth, air, water. fire) in the Earth Book and Codex Damnorum. Mages can use them with the Secret Book.
    5. When fixing an item there was a 2% chance to break it completely and a 2% chance to improve it. Now the chance of a successful enhancement is equal to 5% (to enhance means to increase the item’s quality by 0.05). For non-craft items, it’s +5%.
    6. This one wasn’t simple, but we’ve decided to return the properties of damage reflection the way it has been before.
      Now the effect of it can’t be topped with damage absorption. If a character is wearing 20 damage reflection, the opponent receives 20 damage points back during each hit.
    7. The damage from the heavy crossbow is slightly lowered.

    Good luck in future combats!

  • Capturing the castle

    We’ve noticed that many players aren’t even aware that 4 automatic events ”The Capture of the Castle” take place in the world weekly.

    What’s that?
    There are four castles in the world. Each of them has its own dungeon, a cave for mining, a forest to dig logs, and gardening grounds. A statue is placed in each castle. Whoever destroys the castle becomes the owner of the castle for one week – until the next capture when you’ll have to defend it from the conquerors.
    The owner of the castle decides on his/her own who will have access to the castle. For a week after becoming a temporary owner no one, except for the ones on the friends’ list, will be able to enter the castle and its grounds. All the uninvited quests will be simply thrown back to the Market.
    Long story short, for a week the castle is a safe farming zone.

    The schedule of the capture of the castles:
    Capturing the Ice Castle (the coordinates 4082 587) takes place on Mondays at 4 p.m. CET
    Capturing the Forest Castle (the coordinates 868 1873) takes place on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. CET
    Capturing the Despise Castle (the coordinates 1251 1181 ) takes place on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. CET in the afternoon
    Capturing the Minoc Castle (the coordinates 2547 115, takes place on Thursdays at 10 a.m. CET.

    The capture of the castle has three stages:
    Pre-capture – A red-coloured system message “90 minutes to prepare”. (Only the owner and friends may enter the castle. The statue has already appeared but can’t be attacked yet).
    The Battle – It’s time to capture/defend the castle for 90 minutes. Anyone can enter and try to conquer the castle. The statue is still inactive.
    Capture – the statue is available to be destroyed. Whoever inflicts the last damage becomes the owner of the castle. Only the characters who were added by the owner of the castle can enter the territory of the castle after the capture.
    Use the command .addcastlefriend to add characters to the castle.

  • Attention: frauds selling characters

    Dear players,
    Recently we’ve encountered several cases of fraud concerning the selling of characters. The pattern is simple: a player offers to sell a character at a low price and gives access to his/her account and the email the game character is signed to. Then receives the money for the char and later gains the email access back, therefore gains the access to the account. The buyer remains without the bought character and can’t return the money back. We’d like to warn you that we do not support any kind of characters’ sales and if you get into this kind of fraud, we won’t be able to help you. As it is almost impossible to settle things up and find out the truth. To us, whoever has access to the e-mail is the true owner of the account.
    Stay alert!

  • Congratulations to the third winner of the €50 coupon!

    Hey guys!
    It’s been a while since we had some news for you, so here we go.

    1. Some GM items have received the following properties:
    Night Dweller – ignores the opponent’s enhancement of Dodge.
    Demon’s Poker – ignores the enhancement of Damage Absorb.
    Shadow Maw – ignores the enhancement of Damage Reflection.

    2. Assassin weapon ignores Damage Absorption

    3. The animation of the Home Dummy is cut by 40%, the damage is removed completely. Nevertheless, all the skills and stats can be trained and weapons can be broken.

    4. Mining no longer brings unnecessary stuff, like maps.

    5. After the reboot weapons that have casting features will depict the circle of magic so that you would know what level of magic immunity you require.

    6. The corpses vanish faster if a) they have nothing in them or b) the corpse is in an anti-harm zone.

    7. Casting spells on mobs won’t be turned down:-)

    8. Some changes have been applied to snooping and the items depicted during that.

    And much more optimization introduced to the game to decrease server upload, as the consequences, fewer lags will appear.
    Sincerely yours,
    Zuluhotel team

  • Greetings to everyone in the new year of 2021!

    Greetings to everyone in the new year of 2021!

    We want to share some news with you, both great and not so great. As you know, there is a chance to loot a 50 euros coupon from a mob’s drop, which you can exchange for cash or perks, it’s up to you. Yesterday two players at once got lucky, and we say they were exactly lucky since the chance to find the coupon equals 1: 50 000
    At 19:58:11 at coordinates 5615 1068 a character by the name Johnny killed an undeadflayer and discovered a 50 Euros coupon. The player looted it and soon will receive his/her prize.
    Congratulations!

    Some time later (here I’m starting to think that I have to do something with the random system because it works way too often :-/ ) another character CharlieRunkle found a 50 euros coupon at 20:19:29 at coordinates 6096 2841 by killing liche.
    The player DIDN’T loot the coupon and it disappeared along with the liche’s corpse.
    Congrats to the winner and we want to warn you to pay attention and carefully check all the corpses, starting from cats and ending with barlons, because the coupon may drop from any monster!
    Good luck hunting!

    P.S.: Considering that the second coupon wasn’t looted and it vanished you still have a chance to get the other 4 coupons!

  • 50 euros coupon

    Here is how the coupon for 50 euros from the New Year’s hunting lottery looks like. More details in the previous posts on the website or in our DISCORD channel: https://discord.com/channels/707526080117997608/707919461893799966/793219741480648724
    The graphics of the coupon is added to the game in the last update (24.12.2020), so to see it you’ll have to update the client files of the game. Here is an instruction on how to do it: https://discord.com/channels/707526080117997608/707919461893799966/791673655901814785

    Unpack the zip-file before using it:
    https://zuluhotel.com/update/ServerConfig.rar
    To update, download ServerConfig.xml to the Orion Launcher folder (if you haven’t done that before). The Orion Launcher folder is located in the folder to which the game was set up. We’ve updated the function of upgrading the client’s files in Orion, so that you wouldn’t have to download the client after each update. Just launch the Orion Client and update the files with one click of a button. So, after you’ve downloaded the file to Orion Launcher folder, reboot the client. There you will see a new tab Uo Files Updates. Click Check updates to search for updates and apply them. To make the process successful, please close all the windows having to do anything with Ultima Online (stealth, injection etc.).

  • The Secret Order of King Henrich (Completed)

    Search quest: The Secret Order of King Henry
    Starts today Dec, 28 at 7 p.m. CET

    The members of the Secret Order have always believed that Henry didn’t deserve the crown. However, all the attempts to get rid of Henry have failed. Despite everything, they strongly believed they could succeed one day. And they did. They bribed the royal Cook to poison the king’s meal.

    The Royal guards have captured the Cook along with one of the members of the Order. They gave us some hints on where to look for the rest of the members.

    You will have to discover 3 locations of the members of the Order. There you can also find clues about where the secret lair is and the password for entrance.

  • An update of automatic features

    Zulu is well-known for its dynamics, variety, and a certain level of in-game skills. All together they give an opportunity to become the best. So, we’ve made a decision to remove a part of automatic features that refer to auto-healing, curing of poison, etc. We’ve turned off the specified features using .options.
    Have a great game! May the best one win!

  • Quest: Dark Matter, part 3 (Ended)

    Quest: Dark Matter, part 3
    Starts Dec, 25 at 7 p.m. CET

    After you had cleared 5 locations in the city of thieves, fake spells were learned. It turns out that these spells also belong to dark magic, with the only difference of the conditions they are used in. The Mages strongly believe there is something we haven’t encountered yet awaiting for us!
    The symbols give us a hint about the Darkness’ child, whatever it means…
    The Greatest Mage couldn’t stay aside and decided to help by equipping all the team of heroes who will arrive to help. At 7 p.m. CET, a portal will open at the Market, come naked.

    Task: As a team, defeat whoever is going to be waiting for us on the other side.
    All the participants of the expedition will receive prizes.

  • Merry Christmas!

    Merry X-mass to all Zuluhotel residents!
    May your life be filled with joy and pleasant memories!
    We hope you behaved well this year, so all good girls and boys will receive presents and treats under the Christmas tree at the Market on Dec, 31!

  • Graphics updates and fixes

    3. Codex, the Book of the Earth, the Bard’s Book may be sold to vendors for Zulu Coins.

    2. New territories for chopping logs are added, similar to a personal mine.
    3. The look of Spellbook is changed. It is now placed in the right hand like a shield. You may take a single-handed weapon with the book.
    4. Voidmaker staff is now considered as a single-handed weapon and can be held with the Secret Book.
    5. Several houses’ textures were fixed. So, the spots where you could shoot through or grab some items through the houses’ corners no longer exist.

  • Mini-quest: The missing treasure (Completed)

    Search mini-quest: The missing treasure!
    Starts today at 7.30 p.m. CET


    One of the knights of the Lord of Britain stole a part of the royal treasury and hid it. To make the gold more difficult to find, he divided it into several parts and stashed them all over the world.

    In the last notes that the noble knights found after they had killed him for treachery, no coordinates were stated. Although, they did find out that there were 5 treasures hidden in available locations.

    Good luck finding them! You’ll definitely need it since the adventure is going to be dangerous. You are not the only one who desires to find the treasure!

  • Zuluhotel is a place where the party never stops!

    Nothing should worry you during the holidays and especially the charges of the looter perk that have suddenly ended. So we let you use the charges from the following day! However, the days when the perk is active will be subtracted.
    To do so, just as usual type the .perk looter command, and in the opened window confirm your intention to add two more charges to the current day by taking them from the following one!

    Enjoy your hunting and have a great game!

  • More great news

    There is only good news today, so here is some more:

    The players who purchased Premium Account Perk can now visit another premium dungeon (the entrance is from the market)

    Each character can enter the dungeon once a day for no longer than 60 minutes, otherwise, the character will be thrown out of the dungeon.

    There is a special route for each class, in which all the peculiarities were taken into consideration, as well as mobs variability.

    Enjoy your game!

  • New in-game updates

    Dear players,
    We have some great news for you:

    1. After the reboot, the commands sell all, sell bag, sell container are available again.
    2. If a mask on your character is stuck or turned out to be cursed, you may use .fixme command to take it off.
    3. Farmers now can plant only one seed on a tile.
    4. The most expected feature for the owners of big houses – teleports inside the house! 🙂
      You can place a teleport using the command i wish to place a teleport and then choose a place of entrance and exit.
      To remove a teleport use the i wish to remove a teleport command.

    You may place a teleport only within the house walls, on the roof, and in towers. And that’s not all! You may create a portal from one house to another if both of the houses belong to you.

    Have a great game, everyone!

  • Some news

    1) The commands sell all, sell bag, sell container are temporarily turned off when selling items to a vendor.

    2) From 21, December 2020 an automatic server’s reboot for the updates to be applied will take place once every two days at 3 a. m. CET.

  • New in-game features

    We announce the latest in-game updates that will be applied to the shard after the reboot:

    1. You can’t recall during the capture of Ice, Despice, Minoc, Forest castles. So, during the capturing of a castle you’ll have to break the barricades and into the room with the statue instead of simply recalling there.
    2. The banker in Newbieland will refuse to service the characters who are in the game for too long.
    3. The altar won’t disappear after killing the bosses, such as Miranda, Magrena, and Apocalypse. It will turn grey instead.
    4. Several mobs received some additional protection (2.0 – 3.0) from Necro and Holy Magic. That way it will be a bit more difficult to kill them with a Perfect weapon.
    5. .suicide command now works once a minute, so if you want to train in the Arena, you don’t have to wait between the rounds.
    6. In the Arena you may choose only the characters within the screen. We’ve fixed a bug when you could choose a character with last target.
    7. Home Dummy now die outside the house.
    8. Vendors no longer obey the Estimate Bag command, because it slowed down the server’s work with estimating the price of items in the bag. Some smartasses would estimate bags with 300 of stuff in them.
    9. Poisoning with poisoned weapons is improved. The charges are not spent if a character is already poisoned.
    10. A new PvP dungeon for Premium Account players will appear in the game soon. It will have a separate path for each class taking into account the skills and abilities of each class. You will be able to visit it once a day!
