Supernova - FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Supernova?

Supernova is a private Final Fantasy XI server, playable for free. It is catered and balanced for the older level 75 content which is no longer viable on the retail servers. It has been online for over four years, and is showing no signs of stopping!

What is the level cap?

The Level Cap is 75 with no intent of ever raising it. We like it old school!

I played on a different server, can I use my old character?

This is not something we can offer, we do not have access to your older characters. Everyone starts from scratch, with some bonuses to enhance progress.

Can I play here and on retail FFXI at the same time?

Yes! We don't modify the core game files installed on your computer, you can most definitely do both! We have many players, even staff, that play on both Supernova and the retail servers!

What sort of bonuses does Supernova have?

Which expansions are included?

We play with the base game, as well as Rise of the Zilart, Chains of Promathia, Treasures of Aht Urghan, and Wings of the Goddess. A few snippets of some of the mini-expansions are on the horizon, but ultimately have not been properly developed for private servers. If/when they are developed, we will make them available.

Is there any custom content available?

Supernova has many customizations that make us differ from the retail servers as well as other private servers. We offer custom quests, seasonal events, enhanced drop rates, and even a centralized server hub for players to gather and organize. We have a serverwide linkshell that players automatically are given access to. Supernova even has reoutfitted a custom abyssea zone for custom exp camps!

How active is the server? How many players are on Supernova?

Supernova has several thousand characters created, and hundreds of active players. We have anywhere from 30-150 players online at a time, so even if you are not in NA prime time, you will find players in your time zone and language to speak with.

Will I be able to do [x] content?

If the content is available, it is being tackled on a constant basis. Dynamis, Limbus, Behemoth, Fafnir, Jormungand, Absolute Virtue, Pandemonium Warden, you name it.
