Blight Updates Blight Delta 280 Istaria Community Manager
December 17, 2015


New pets, usable in combat, are available.  There are currently three which are all purchased from Anarie the Loyalty Token Vendor in Bristugo.  These combat pets do not provide storage like their non-combat cousins, but they do provide a passive bonus while equipped as well as an active bonus when you right-click use them (Tip: You can create a hotkey (Right click, Action = Use) for quick use!).

This active action requires a new looted item called an “Automata Power Cell” that is consumed on use.  Power Cells drop from special Tier5 monsters of “Gnomian” origin.

SpellaBot v1.0

  • Bonus while equipped:
    • +20 Focus
    • +20 Power
  • Bonus on Use:
    • 5% Outgoing spell damage

November 17, 2015

Blight will be shutdown for maintenance at 12:30 PM PST.  A bit off on our initial estimate but we expect Blight to be back online by 6:00 PM PST.

These changes provide back end optimizations, as well as changes to support / ease future content updates and the process of releasing updates.
