6 Months of Progress in Wurm Online
Wurm is one of those delightful games where your work is never done. It has infinite replayability, and every time you play it the game is going to be different. I haven’t done a lot of Wurm posts this year, but I’ve still been playing. Back in June I made the move from Pristine to Xanadu, a giant megaserver that was opened. Xanadu differs from the other servers in the fact that there are no personal traders allowed. Those are the NPC you can purchase for 50 silver from starter town merchants (other traders). It’s also gigantic compared to the other servers. I have barely explored any of it where as I was quite familiar with Deliverance, Pristine, and a good portion of Exodus.
I’ve been at this deed location for 6 months now, and I love it. I haven’t purchased any other deeds (which is new for me, typically I own a handful) and I have no intention of moving (though I would like to explore a bit more). My deed is not done but a good portion of it is. There is still a path leading up to my mine that I’m working on, my olive and grape farms need some more sprouts, and I’m contemplating a larger house for my character (but we’ll see, it’s mostly just to use up space). The deed is 41 x 37 which is a fair size, and upkeep is 3 silver 3 copper and 40 iron. I don’t own any guards so that helps the cost quite a bit. I have roughly 25 horses but most of them are grey and I’m only keeping that many so that I can work my animal husbandry skill and try to get the elusive 5 speed. Once I get a higher AH skill and some more colours I’ll cull them.
My buildings are pretty sparse, and I’m thinking of working on that. I think I want a separate building for tailoring and smithing. Right now I have one large workshop for everything. I also have a building that servers as a kitchen, with my pantry and ovens. I have a stable running along the back of the deed, and a small 2×2 personal home. I’ve seen some fantastic elaborate homes on the forums, and I’m contemplating building something more extravagant. We’ll see I suppose. I dislike making mortar, but I do have an infinite supply of clay, so it could be worse.
Then of course there’s my mine. It’s quite small. I have contemplated setting up another deed for the chance at a larger mine, but I’m not sure if I really want to. I have enough iron to keep me busy for the next few years, maybe once I have exhausted those sources I’ll contemplate another. I’d like to get a few more different types of ore.. We’ll just have to see how that goes.
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
