The Phoenix initiative (PI) is a Kickstarter/Summer crowdfunding reward for pledges at the Royalty level or above.[1]

Players in the Phoenix initiative are able to enter an exclusive in-game instance where they can interact directly with developers and game masters (GMs).[2]

  • The PI instance is intended to be a cross-server instanced area. This is not to be confused with Alpha island, which will be an open-world zone.[3]
  • The PI instance will be accessible through port keys available in most towns and potentially through a freehold decor item gifted to the club members.[4]
  • The PI instance will not be cross-region.[5]
    • For example, there will be separate NA and EU PI instances.[6]
  • No fast travel will be possible through the PI instance. PI members will exit the instance at the point they entered.[7]
  • No player-to-player trading or dropping and picking up items will be possible in the PI instance.[7]


The Phoenix initiative is a centralized club that offers services that would normally be spread out within a node.[8] This will be via a server shard at the club building.[9]

  • The club will offer unique cosmetics – that may otherwise be limited or seasonal – to club members for purchase or production at all times.[8] This will likely be via an inter-server instance.[9]

Think of it as a secret club, where you can socialize with other members. This area will not offer any “Pay to Win” functionality, it will simply offer what the world does in a more personal space. This is an area devs and GMs will often hang out there in their off time, and gives you a chance to interact with them in game![2]
