Q What can't a mule do?

A Most things - trade with other players, harvest, get XP from fighting, cast spells etc.

 

Q How do I gain a level?

A You must be a mule for 800 "Creature Foods" per level.

 

Q 800 "Creature Foods"?! Isn't that expensive?

A It depends on your point of view. Personally I would happily pay to be able to increase my carry capacity.

A You need to deposit or drop some items until your carry is at or below your normal EMU level.

ok heres a question :

 

You need to stay as a mule for 9 hours, but is that 9 hours all in one go , or you can for example be a mule for 2 hours then go back to normal and keep that 2 hours as part of the 9 needed for a level ?

Okay..

 

what did we get so far from this FAQ?

 

Labrat is an impotent donkey, which is sitting at beam... very useful :P

 

So some more questions:

 

Where do you get the mule food from or the books how to make it?

 

What are mule skins?

 

How do i make the mule glyph or from where do i buy the book to make it?

Read the FAQ again - using a door is the same as changing maps.

Use with is interaction. You can interact.

Real time and EL term are virtually the same. But if you are asking if you have to be in game? Yes. In game and in the form of the shapeshifted creature (i.e. Mule). Does not have to be 9 hours straight, just 9 hours total

I have reached level 10 mule \o/

 

That's right folks you saw it here first - I have reached the dizzy heights of 2016 carry capacity.

 

Do I enjoy being a mule? Definitely, the sheer volume of people that want to talk to you, take screenies with you, ride you (o.O) etc makes it all worthwhile :P

 

Have I enjoyed the levelling process? Honestly I have to say at times the inability to do anything productive ingame has driven me to distraction, but just spending a few days ingame doing nothing more than just chat to people and do the occasional bit of muling stuff to storage gave me time to do stuff irl :)

 

Waking up and checking EL before I even have a coffee so I can update my AFK message has been fun too :)

 

I like the way you change mule colour as you get to certain stages, but (as I said to Roja at beam) I like the brown mule best - it looks like a thoroughbred racehorse rather than a mule.

 

The sheer encouragement from players ingame whenever I got to level the mule really helped me to shoot for the following level.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that provided the glyphs, hunted down food, even running to c2 for me to collect creature food and the hours of harvesting and potioning that went into providing me with the almost 9000 potions required to take me to level 10. To each and every one of you I offer my hearty thanks - I couldn't have done it without your help and support.

 

To Radu and Roja I would like to thank you both for the effort you have put into the game and artwork, and having the patience to answer my questions when you both were extremely busy.

 

Ah well, I had better run to the market channel - I only have 5 minutes left as a mule before my Creature Food runs out :P
