OUR HARDWARE

Æsir is powered by a small trio of dedicated machines built by Jax and Zuka. Routine maintenance is performed alongside upgrades made possible by our community. World saves are backed up hourly and held long term on our Deep Storage drives, enabling backup and recovery of player profiles and inventories.

 

We are donation supported, helping us keep things tidy and take care of the bills. Owning the hardware enables rapid troubleshooting and recovery, and a degree of customization that just isn't possible from a rented service.

THE VOLCANO

VARIETY

We host all of Ark's official content alongside the best mod maps available. 

UNWEIGHTED SPAWNS

All vanilla maps enjoy an increased frequency of high-level dino spawns! Wildcard never compensated them to match Ragnarok's excellent level distributions – but we have! Every server enjoys fewer low-level dinos, ensuring the hunt is worth it every time.

QUALITY OF LIFE MODS

Our mod load cuts out Ark's worst aspect – tedium – without losing the challenge. Endlessly modify your base with S+; Transfer element and enjoy lighter stacks with StackMeMore; Enjoy breedable drakes, wyverns, and griffins with Naj’s Speedy Flyers; go deco-crazy with a variety of Eco’s RP décor! We've optimized for the quickest possible load-ins – more on our mods page!

DEDICATED COMMUNITY SUPPORT

You'll find a vibrant and welcoming community in our Discord! We are eager to help you, whether you're new to the game or have thousands of hours under your belt. Encounter an issue? Submit a ticket in our help-room! Our admin team uses a dedicated ticketing system to ensure you get the support you need!

BREED FREE

We do not restrict the dino trade! Players are free to do with their breeds as they wish. All the colors you see in our gallery are attainable in-game.

THE RAG RULE

Tribes are restricted to building on only one of the two Ragnarok servers. We ask this so that the community at large has a chance to enjoy one of Ark’s most popular maps. Tribes found to be violating this rule will be given a chance to choose a base to keep – the other will be deleted without compromise. Players are welcome to travel freely across the two maps – please only settle on one of them.
