Background Story

Caballus is a world born out of the heat.
Grown from lava, cooled and hardened in the wild sea. The largest of the Caballic islands. The still intact vulcano formed a multi-faceted world with a variety of biomes, recourses and live over millennia. Not long did this piece of earth be left uninhabited. Ancient nomads first reached the coast of neighbouring islands, until they discovered the richness of resources of Caballus. The different nations were all equestrian folks: numerous, with strength and war experience; always with the goals reaching wealth and making progress. They changed Caballus a lot, but as a completely new world Caballus turned everything upside down. New creatures were fought, nations continued their education, domestication started, new battles had to be beaten and leaders were overthrown. But who has remained?
Greed is a sin: Caballus stayed with the wild creatures, remaining horses, ruines and hidden treasures. Did they were the first? Even this civilization did not discover all the secrets of this graceful lovely world.
What´s your decision?
Cohension or war?
Which of the equestrian folks fits to your temperament?
Three nations fought for Caballus:
The Blue Scythians, who populated the areas of Griffin Mountain, Redwood and the area covered with snow.
The Green Huns, which conquered the grassland, the swamp and the jungle.
Last the Red Csíkos who managed the impetuous and threatening vulcano area with the Black Widen and the Steppe.

Caballus Loot System - Treasure Loot System

IMPORTANT FOR ALL ADVENTURER: There are no Air Drops on Caballus, you have to find the Treasures . The Treasures fitting better to the background story and you have to search hard for REALLY GOOD LOOT.
I changed the content of the Treasures, so that there is no stuff like a blueprint for a doorframe in it.
Quality chain is: green - blue - yellow - red - purple.
All the hard neededstuff is findable - DLC stuff und blueprints either. A detailed list is on the Wiki Page.

Cara, é normal toda vez que para em um local ( seguro ) para abrir inventário e do nada toma 3k de dano e morrer? Junto aos finos próximos, no Feed apenas aparece que morreu, não aparece o que matou.

Anyone else having issues staying connected on this map? I've played this in the past never had issues, decided to start a new adventure on this map again and now I am getting constant timeouts. Do not have this issue with any other maps I've tested just this one

I had another question. (sorry for being so "chatty" lol). Is there a reason we can not build at location NW 65.74-23.90? i thought it would be an awesome place to build a HUB
