Blight Updates City Under Siege Istaria Community Manager
February 10, 2015

Summary

  • New Trismus has been burned and is under siege!
  • Epic Loot and Items have been given an overhaul!
  • Weapon appearances have been greatly improved
  • More quests for the Island of Fire

New Trismus - City Under Siege!

The once idyllic town of New Trismus has come under attack by forces of the Withered Aegis, led by the foul Uddorakh. Much of the town now lies in ruins, but the residents have not given up hope and continue to fight their attackers! New quests, lots of dangerous monsters, and an all-new storyline are available with this fantastic update.

  • Many structures in New Trismus have been replaced with burned out versions of the structure. Machines have been removed from the town of New Trismus itself, though field machines on the island were left in place.
  • Basic trainers (Warrior, Mage, Cleric and Scout) on New Trismus no longer offer quests to players under level 4. They now send them back to Spirit Island.
  • Many monsters remain on the island, but have had their spawns moved or updated to reflect the changes. In addition, levels of many wolves, grulets, beetles, etc have been adjusted to fit the storyline quests.
  • The Trials of the Gifted quest has been relocated to Kion along with all of the Assessors. The title reward's buff has been updated to reflect the new level range of the quest.
  • Steward Pratt and Rancher Elden have new quests which can be repeated every hour for characters who are between levels 6 and 12 to provide an experience boost.
  • Braekhis has quests which focus on the Ruined Homestead region for anyone level 8 and above.
  • Quest experience and rewards for the tutorial quests on Spirit Island have been adjusted to fit better with the New Trismus changes.
  • A fourth Spirit Isle quest has been added to teach players a bit more about the game and to assist them with reaching level 4.
  • Players may no longer have more than one quest from Steward Pratt active at a time. This was causing conflicts with his various quests. Included are the Town Marshall quests that he gives out.
  • The final quest for dragons coming from Skalkaar sends them to greet Steward Pratt instead of Milicent.

  • Two previously unreleased lair murals are now available: Obsidian Mirror (variants: normal, lunus, helian) and Drulkar's Icon.
