What is Oprinom?
Oprinom, also known in short as Oprim, is the energy emitted from the crystals around the world of Antreya. This energy is what powers the people and creatures of the Antreyan society. Miners, harvesters, and collectors have all found many ways of extracting the Oprim from the crystals.
Ever since the citizens have begun harvesting the mysterious energy, they have found many uses for them. The uses ranged from empowering their weapons and armor, upgrading their already known abilities and magic to make it more powerful and effective, and even stashing it away to use in cases of emergencies.
Once the Oprinom is drained from the crystals, the value of these crystals is meek. People have little use for the crystals once it lacks in Oprim and is typically just used as decoration or paper weights. However, the market for crystal trade is large with a vast amount of merchants carrying an immense stock of the crystal. It’s much harder to find merchants that have Oprim filled crystals for sale, and even when you do, the price is steep.
How does Oprinom affect players?
When a player finds Oprim in the wild or buys it from a merchant, or fellow player, then they will see a number raised that can be found above the amount of gold a player is holding. This is your Oprimeter.
Once this Oprimeter is full, you will be given a stat growth point that can be used to increase one of your many traits: Strength, Intelligence, Dexterity, Stamina, Defense, Spirit Essence or Spirit Control.
