What are these separate discord servers about?
Due to the nature of the way discord is monetized, it restricts server to a limited amount of so called "emoji slots".
The more emoji slots your server has, the higher the requirement of your server boost amount.
Server boosts can be provided by anyone to any server at any given time. They can be bought separate for 4.99 € a month. Each server boost alone provides nothing. There are certain pre determined "thresholds" of required server boosts for a server to reach more emoji slots. The highest boost stage a server can achieve by default without manual intervention of Discord or Partnership is 250 emoji slots.
The required amount of server boosts amount to 30 each month, let me give you a math example here : 30x4.99€ = 150€ a month. The Grim Dawn community in total is not big enough to provide this amount of money at any given time for the simple purpose of emojis, neither would i personally want to waste that much money on the despicable business practises of discord.
The solution to this is very simple though, if you have Discord Nitro (explained below) you can use any emote from any third party server. By default any server gets 50 free emoji slots. We have created a separate discord server to join for anyone with discord nitro to enjoy the Skill icons of Grim Dawn in any server.
Statistics on the emojis available.
How does Discord Nitro work and how much does it cost?
Please be aware that there are 2 different types of nitro available.
The only difference between the 4.99&euro discord nitro classic and that the version for 9.99 of discord nitro is that it costs 5€ more for 2 server boosts that you can spend on servers of your choice.
WE ONLY RECOMMEND TO GET DISCORD NITRO CLASSIC.
You can find more information on the official page of discord regarding nitro.
Please do not spend any server boosts on the community discord without contacting the Moderation team prior. It most likely would be a waste.
