Set a Role-Based Avatar in Eonar’s Discord Server: Step by Step Guide
Want a unique avatar for every server you log onto? Well, now you can with your Nitro perk: Server Avatars!
Get an exclusive look and feel that matches your character in-game, whether you choose to be a Gaardmen, Afolk, or Rafilian on your Eonar Odyssey voyage!
This means you can sport your faction’s colors and emblems with pride! Personally, I fight for the Afolk, and I’m going to be sporting a sweet set of red-and-black armor (don’t worry — I come in peace for this article).
This step-by-step guide will take you through the process of setting a role-based avatar that can be used in Eonar’s Discord server. Let’s jump in!
WHAT ARE SERVER AVATARS?
Server avatars have been a long-awaited addition to the Nitro service! With this new feature, you can set an avatar for each different server that your character is present on. What better way to show off your unique in-game persona to the world?
Note: Even if you upload a server avatar, your profile avatar will be unaffected and remain as your primary avatar in servers where you don’t upload server avatars.
Like profile avatars, PNG and JPG are the supported file types and Nitro users can upload a GIF for their server avatars. You may crop and center PNG, JPG, and GIF files after uploading your server avatar… phew!
HOW TO SET AN AVATAR?
Alright… get on with it!
Okay, let’s quickly go over how to create a server avatar, so you can get back to mining Eonar Odyssey’s valuable resources and growing your stash.
First, make sure that the Nitro subscription is enabled (for those of you who do not have a Nitro account, we recommend getting it for its awesome perks and features).
There are two easy ways to upload a server avatar (choose your favorite):
1) RIGHT-CLICK ON YOUR AVATAR
In the browser or desktop app, you can right-click on your avatar in the Member List of the server, which is the right sidebar, and then activate the drop-down menu.
Press on the Edit Server Profile option and an in-app pop-up window will appear. You can then press on your avatar to upload your server avatar.
Press the Save button to confirm your server avatar!
2) LEFT-CLICK ON YOUR AVATAR
Alternatively, you can left-click on your avatar in the Member List, in a text channel, or in a voice channel to make the mini profile pop-up appear. You’ll then see the option to Edit Server Profile, which should be clicked on to make the in-app pop-up window appear for you to change your avatar.
Before you race off to show the Eonar Odyssey your new avatar, don’t forget to press the Save button to confirm your avatar change.
WHAT IF I WANT TO RESET MY SERVER AVATAR?
The beauty of server avatars is that they aren’t permanent.
In fact, you have full control… and that’s what DeFi is all about!
If you made a mistake with your server avatar or if you would like to revert back to your profile avatar, you can navigate to the in-app pop-up window following either of the two methods above and then pressing on Reset to Primary Avatar.
CHANGING YOUR SERVER AVATAR ON MOBILE
For those of you who are always on the go, you can also change your server avatar via the iOS or Android clients. You can do so via User Profile or the Server Profile.
- Through the User Profile: In the server you want to apply a Server Avatar, press on your user avatar — either in one of the channels you’ve messaged in or in the server’s member list
- Through the Server Profile: Press on the ellipses by the name of the server you want to add a Server Avatar to
- Select the Edit Server Profile button
- Press on your current Server Avatar and choose Change Avatar/Change Server Avatar to start the process of selecting a new image from your mobile device’s photo gallery
- This is also where you can choose to remove your Server Avatar by pressing on the Reset to Primary Avatar instead
- Don’t forget to Save!
