Wurm Online previews its upcoming animal update with donkeys

Get the Shrek jokes out of your system.

Tired of plodding around in Wurm Online on a cow? Then we’ve got good news for you because here come donkeys. Yes, with the game’s upcoming animal update, donkeys will be available for players and can serve as mounts for non-premium players. There’s also the distinct possibility that your horses and donkeys can wind up making for a mule or two if you’re thus inclined, although that’s just implied rather than stated outright.

But the animal update isn’t just about donkeys; it’s also adding new traits to the animals you breed as well as ensuring that high Animal Husbandry skill is useful rather than detrimental to your breeding efforts. There will also be more body type variants introduced for horses, to boot. Add in some updates to the game’s UI and there’s plenty of cause for players to look forward to the update, even if they don’t necessarily want to make a whole pile of donkeys run around their farms.

“Can I stay whichoo, please?”

Just for once I’d love to click into an article, and not see “Never mind the donkeys, these guys are jerks because…” or a variation thereof. Is everyone really that jaded?

Thank you Bruno for maintaining my faith in humanity. Yours was the natural, well-adjusted human respsonse to the addition of donkeys to an mmo.

I was being ironic.

And, i’m sorry if you think we’re jaded. This is the game where the community chased Chris off because he said the game was complicated. It was a complete shitshow in the comments, and it ended up in Twitter.

So, yeah, the fact that these developers cater to players that harass newbies with criticism is something to be mindful of.

Not only that, I never ‘outed’ who I was in-game during that fiasco in that thread/or their forum thread, because I figure they’d retaliate against my account if they knew.

I pondered jumping in on there but I figured it’d just ‘stir the pot’ so I didn’t. I may seem like I ‘lurv the drama’ but I actually just want something to change for the better…if you read the thread they did on that, they basically told their own GM to go eff himself…(No wonder he decided to move on and find something else…)…when he was calling for people to hold themselves accountable/treat people with respect…

I also apologize but this is certainly one where it’s true. I am this jaded/cynical at this point for a reason.

Only took them what, 5-6-7 years to address the AH issue? We pointed it out years ago, and they ignored us.

And to quote PandyLynn on the thread :

I’ve been in the game too long when I see the donkey and think “We already have so many jackasses.” lmao

…they hit the nail on the head perfectly.

This game has other problems they need to address…

This is Wurm Online’s standard mode of operation. Hence why there are no more than a thousand people playing at any given time in this massive, silent world. A highly intelligent playerbase has literally given a comprehensive guide on what could make Wurm Online a better experience, majority of which falls on ignorant behavior from the developers. Stop torturing yourself and move on from this mentally diminishing grind in hopes it will get any better. While it’s not an MMO like Wurm, Valheim has shown how to balance mechanics, keep the player moving and gives so much more freedom to build, terraform and explore. Wurm is a subscription game for people who are truly invested in the grind and mundane, unimaginative gameplay. After a decade of development, Wurm is just a paycheck for this development team.

Oh, I left awhile ago. (Wonder how long a 70 QL Caravel would last with decay mechanic! Logged off with as many of my valuables as I could carry..which was quite a lot since I had over 50 bstr.)

After one of their staff people banned me from posting to forums for a month for outing their ‘head honcho’ of the mods for their unethical behavior, I took my money elsewhere.

It’s been a couple years since I played…but I check back every so often in hopes that things will have improved. (I saw they changed out the CM)

I just comment on these articles as a warning for others.

I’d love to give Valheim a try, but they use Steam, and I boycott that program on principle and last I saw there wasn’t another way on there. I’m vaguely puttering on non-paid for (Gave em a year paid) ESO since they were running events which just ended but having issues with inventory space because of their craft bag being stuck behind paid access.

Why what’s wrong with steam?

For a long time, Steam was trying to ‘run a monopoly’ and use that to force people to pay ‘extra’ to them, I’m vehemently against monopolies of any kind. (Think Teddy Roosevelt and the whole big stick idea.) Nowadays they have a little competition, but I just don’t like that everything is on there, so I avoid it. If the people want to keep putting their games there, they just will never acquire money from me. -shrugs-
