Are you feeling this tense atmosphere? Like somethin' is brewin' and bout to begin...  An ever so subtle mix of fear, excitation, and impatience... Nothing more normal: the Goultarminator is coming in from the East!
The Epic Server will be a new type of server where the characters' death is permanent in PvM but not in PvP.
This server will be called "Shadow". Here's a little summary of his story:

"A creature born from Ereziah's shadow and the Ebony Dofus, Shadow is fascinated with the void. For him, there is no half-measure or grey area: there is no life after death, only emptiness. Some heroes have been influenced by this radical way of seeing the Krosmoz: they refuse reincarnation of any sort. For them, there can only be one destination, as finale as it is eternal. Their journey is thus made that much more epic."
