What is this server's IP? A: You can use the official IP play.wynncraft.com to join our server. Alternatively, if you want to join the lobby, you can use lobby.wynncraft.com instead. Q: Can I use a cracked version of Minecraft to join Wynncraft? A: No. We will never support cracked versions of Minecraft. You must own the genuine version of Minecraft, purchased from minecraft.net. Q: What can I do and cannot do on the server? A: See Game & Forum Rules for a list of what you can and cannot do. Q: What should I do if I see someone who is breaking the rules? A: If you see a rulebreaker, immediately report them to our Staff Team, and we will deal with them ASAP! You can reach us in numerous ways: /report - You can report players who are breaking the rules in the game with the command /report. The syntax for the command is /report [player] [reason]. This is an in-game command. You can report players breaking the rules in the forums by clicking Report under their posts. Player Reports Section - You can report players who are breaking the rules by sending a player report in this subforum. Read the How to Report a Player thread for more info. You can DM the Moderators in the Wynncraft Discord Server, but it isn't a recommended way of reaching out the Staff Team. You can find a full list of Moderators here. Note that Discord usernames may differ from the in-game usernames. @Moderator ping - This role mention will send a notification to the Moderators on our Official Discord Server with this role. Misuse of this role mention is forbidden. You can use this to reach out to all of the Moderators at once in case of an emergency, such as NSFW, malware or other content that needs to be dealt with as quickly as possible. Moderators can be reported by reaching out to the Moderator Managers: @Viridian and @Naraka00. Only report Moderators if you have substantial proof. Q: Why am I banned? What's going on? How do I remove my ban? A: You were banned because you were breaking the Game & Forum Rules. Bans, unless a time is specified, are usually indefinite - they will not run out if they are not temporary, which means in order to "remove" your ban, you will have to appeal it. If you are banned, please submit a ban appeal to the Ban Appeals subforum, and read the How to Submit an Appeal thread for more info. Please note that DM'ing the Moderators on Discord or on the forums will not make your appeal go faster. Q: How can I interact with other players? A: You can join our official Discord Server here. Bear in mind that Game & Forum Rules apply. Q: Does Wynncraft host events? A: Yes! You can find our events on the forums with the post flair Official Event. Players are welcome to host their own events as well - all unofficial events hosted by the players are labeled Community Events, and you're welcome to host your own, as long as you abide by the Game & Forum Rules. Q: What is a "build"? A: In an RPG context, your character's "build" is the arrangement of stat points and/or gear for your character that will allow you to achieve the best results for your playstyle. This only applies to games where it is impossible to max out all your stats, or if you want to stay at a certain level. For help with builds, you can visit our Class Builds subforum, or tune into the #class_builds channel on our Discord server. Q: What is the best version to play Wynncraft on? A: Wynncraft is the most stable on 1.12.2, but we support all versions 1.9.x-1.18.x. Q: Where can I find the World Map? A: The World Map can be found here. Q: The rules thread is not answering my questions! A: You can contact the Moderators for clarification on the specifics of the rules, where need be. You can also find the rule clarifications on the bottom of the Game & Forum Rules thread. Forums Q: What is the "Conversations" system? A: Conversations system allows players to communicate with each other in private. You can start a conversation by selecting the "Start a Conversation" button either on the conversations hover button, or on a player's page. The latter allows you to start a conversation with that person directly. Q: How do I add a forums signature? A: Forums signatures are added by hovering over the "Profile" button and selecting "Signature". From there, you can edit your signature to be whatever you want within our Game & Forum Rules. Q: What is ??? Hunt on Forums? A: ??? Hunt is an obsolete subforum that used to be the main hub to discuss the old ??? quest, back when spoiling ??? was a bannable offense. This subforum currently has no use. Q: Why did I get directed to Forums to submit a bug report/appeal my ban? A: We handle ban appeals exclusively through forums. The only exception are the Discord bans, which will be covered in the Discord section of the FAQ. Bug reports are also sent through the Forums, to allow the Content and Staff teams to document the bugs encountered in the game. Q: Why is there an "exploitable" toggle for bug reports? A: Some bugs in the game are capable of being exploited for great personal gain to the detriment of others, can be used to wreak havoc in our servers, and are generally considered game-breaking. These bugs are hence called "exploitable", and must be reported upon encountering. Note that exploiting any bugs in Wynncraft will result in a ban. Q: I can't submit an appeal! A: There could be a couple of reasons for this - either you have been banned temporarily (which cannot be appealed by design), or the system thinks you're not banned when you are. For the latter, we suggest using your old names when submitting an appeal. There are also rare cases where the appeal system stops working altogether. If that happens, DM a Moderator, and they will escalate it to the Admin team. Q: Why did my message get removed? A: We expect users to follow the rules in the game, as well as in the Forums. If your message or thread was removed, it most likely did not follow our rules. You will also receive details about your thread's removal in DMs to avoid future removals to an extent.
