Aurora is a PvP centered eco server, made for all player types who enjoy oldschool based scape. Meaning, while the focus is aimed towards PvP, Skillers and PvM’ers alike still play a very crucial role in the success of the economy! PvP’ers will require the best of the best equipment to be on top of their game to survive the wild, and most best in slot PvP items will come from PvM’ing, World Events, and our other engaging content!
