  • Velma the confectioner trainer has relocated to Dalimond temporarily and will sell Journeyman formulas to anyone who is interested.

  • Ceremonial Dragon Scale once again has a description and boosts Tooth & Claw by +50.
  • Quest "Elissa Malna: A New Cargo Disk" no longer requires you to have the Broken Disk in your possession to pick up the quest (and so should not disable near the end when the Broken Disk is removed).

Live Updates A Bitter Wind Istaria Community Manager

Emblems as Abilities

Emblems have been re-done with this update by creating abilities of the same name. These abilities will allow you to create temporary "buffs" that give you the title and/or honorific just like the emblem item did previously. The benefit of this change is that it allows you to save space in your vault or inventory and to never worry again about deleting those precious emblems.

  • Existing Emblems have been modified to be something which players must "Use". By right clicking and selecting "Use", players will earn an ability which matches that of the old emblem. (Note this means that emblems can no longer be equipped.) Note that all abilities presently appear under both the "Adventurer" and "Craft" tabs on the players ability list, but all start with Title: (name) for easier sorting.
  • Quests from which players obtained new emblems will remain the same, they will earn an emblem and have to "Use" that item to earn the ability. This is so that no existing quest needs to be restarted, as many required a repeated action by players.
  • New quests for new emblems will simply give the ability directly, thus bypassing the creation of the actual emblem.
  • A new Expert Crystalshaper emblem has been added to the game. The quest is available from Aratanosh in the Fiery Rift for any dragon who has attained lvl 100 Crystalshaper.
  • Some of these new abilities will give players special bonuses under certain circumstances when equipped. (For example, a Spider Slayer title may give a bonus to the player's damage when fighting against spiders.)
  • Legacy Item "(Legacy): Research Assistant Emblem" may now be used to give an ability instead of an old title.

Live Updates Live Launcher 4.1 Istaria Community Manager
April 2, 2014

Fixes:

  • Fix to place auto-login checkbox on login screen and troubleshooting screen
  • Fix to not have an "Decryption Failure" when running launcher first time

Feature:

  • New feature of cycling launcher backgrounds (and you can add your own too!)

Blight Updates Blight Delta 257 Istaria Community Manager
March 31, 2014
  • Fixed The Riddle Solver title augmentation.
  • Hat Box for the Paper Bag Hat: Plain will now consume itself rather than the hat box for the "happy" hat when used.
  • Fixed quest Dalimond Peninsula: Attunement to Pleasant Canyon to use the correct constraint.
  • The Skeletal Warlord once again spawns in the Eastern Deadlands.
  • Shifted Stoneworking structure near Eastern Outpost slightly so that it hopefully will update and be on the ground.
  • Special Potion of Memories now properly calls for a Memory of the Lost Elder to be created.
  • Lowered the chance for "Weapon Tech Kit: Morravis' Rune of Flame" to apply the "Burning" debuff from 25% to 10% (delay-adjusted). This is being done in an attempt to lessen the frequency of application so that the Burning DoT has more time to actually do damage.
  • Scrolls, potions and technique kits of all types will once again consume themselves on use.

Spring Festival

  • The NPC's for the Spring Festival have returned to New Brommel.
  • Gata has a new quest called "Daily Riddle: Golden Treasure". This quest, which will provide players with a new pet called the Eostre Beetle, is repeatable daily so that should someone fail it the first time they can repeat it the next day. (Note that daily repeatable quests are a new feature being introduced with this update).
  • Gata's riddle "The Blacksmith and the Emperor" is also repeatable daily.
  • Ssaulios has a quest called "Rare Foods: Snap Dragon" which introduces the formula for the dessert called Snap Dragon.
  • The Festival Tents first introduced in the previous Spring Festival have been renamed to be Spring Festival Tent just to clarify that these items are only seasonally available.
