The word “haven” means a lot of things, but almost all of them relate to a feeling of safety. In a game like Mortal Online whose own Steam page outright boasts “danger is everywhere, safety must be earned” and offers full-loot FFA PvP, “safety” is probably not the first adjective that comes to mind. That perception may change just a bit with today’s Haven update which seeks to gently onboard new arrivals.
The titular zone is a completely protected space for new players of Mortal Online to learn the ropes. Everyone in Haven is protected from PvP, and there are a number of NPCs who will introduce newcomers to the game. Banks in Haven will also be accessible in the city of Tindrem, so any stuff found here will carry over. In addition, Haven will offer up ways for guilds to recruit these new arrivals from within Haven to further ease new player onboarding.
Once your character leaves Haven, however, the PvP protection goes away and you cannot re-enter. You will also get a free character re-roll once you leave Haven just in case a veteran guildie points out some mistakes in your build. Just be careful of people camping the exit to Haven for fresh ganking meat a la the Dark Zone doors in The Division.
The update has also made a variety of other changes including new graphics for the city of Tindrem, a balancing of skills to lessen the early grind, and various other adjustments and additions. All of the details are in the patch notes.
