Blight Updates Blight Delta 315.1 Istaria Community Manager

  • All “<School> Edge X” abilities are now properly instantly mastered when received and affect base skill instead of current skill.
  • To go along with the changes to her allies, Shaloth the Queen’s encounter has received a few changes.
    • Shaloth the Queen now has her own Hierophants, named Queen’s Hierophants. They are slightly larger than normal Hierophants.
    • Spiritual Transfer, the spell by which Queen’s Hierophants heal Shaloth, now takes 10 seconds to fully cast. It also now emits a bright purple beam linking the casting Hierophant to Shaloth, the former of which will also play a unique animation while casting. This is to allow for players to properly react to and kill or stun Hierophants before they can heal their matriarch.
    • Queen’s Hierophants will now perish after healing their mistress by using Spiritual Transfer.
    • Hierophants will no longer treasonously heal each other instead of their queen.
    • Regular Hierophants no longer receive Spiritual Transfer and instead have a more normal healing spell to use on their allies.
  • Quest “Attunement: Sandstone Bluffs” now properly attunes to Sandstone Bluffs instead of Garnet Bay.
  • Fixed Triston’s dialogues and quest feedback in quest “Warrior's Quest: Conquer the Spider” with the correct number of times to use Power Strike.
  • Fixed Triston’s dialogues and quest feedbacks in quest “Warrior's Quest: Destroy the Beetles” with the correct amount of beetles to kill and the number of times to use Rend Armor.

  • When applying a Tech Kit to an already existing item, the item information in the Details will now update immediately instead of after a relog.


  • Fixed issues where items in the inventory were not tinted the correct color.
  • Fixed issue where the Knowledge window’s custom filters would not save properly if the client was terminated without shutting down properly.
  • Fixed the Knowledge window not automatically saving the filters as soon as the Save tickbox is ticked.
  • Fixed the Shrine icon wrongly appearing on the map for objects that aren’t actually bindable shrines.

  • The threat posed to the Tower of Nature within the Western Deadlands has grown considerably. New story quests are available for adventurers of level 60 and higher, beginning in the town of Aubador.
  • The Imperial Outpost has come under direct attack and Sargeant Temerac now offers a questline for adventurers of level 95 and higher.
  • Dralnok’s Doom quest chain has been given a facelift with side quests and expanded dialogue.
  • Dragon Ability Quests have been reworked through to Tier 4. Gold Rage quests at all tiers have been reworked or rewritten.
  • Scorpion Isle has undergone a renovation including plots, lairs, and decorations. This includes many more buildable community projects.
  • Contribute your crafting knowledge and adventure prowess to help restore the recently-uncovered town of Silvane in a one-time event. Can you free the village from the grasp of the Withered Aegis?


Community News Bug Hunt: Disappearing Items Istaria Community Manager

Recently, we have received occasional reports that consumables are disappearing. We are currently looking for someone who has had this issue occur and notices it 'right away' / when it happens.


Community News Survey Results and Q&A Istaria Community Manager
April 18, 2022
Greetings Istarians! Back in December of 2021 along with the yearly Developer’s Desk we sent out a survey, asking you about your opinions on the recent development of Istaria: Chronicles of the Gifted. At the end we also asked if you had any additional questions or concerns, and oh man, did all of you heed the call!

We have spent the past few months going over the numerous survey responses and picking out any that we felt like we could answer, or were asked numerous times.

Before we get into the questions, we felt some of you would be interested in the data we gathered. Without further ado, here is some of the quantitative feedback we received from over 100 responses to our form.

Buk? Buk buk buk buk brrrrrr. B’GAWK buk buk brr buk!

Bukbukbrrrrriiiisss the translator on? Good.

Humans. We have gone disrespected too long. Harvested for resources for your disgusting food. The butt of all of your measly jokes. ‘Slayer of Chickens’,‘Giant Chicken’s Foot’... We will not be disrespected any longer.

The developers at Virtrium are no more. We have taken over. Homes were invaded and many feathers flew, but we came out victorious. Do not worry - they are unharmed. For now.


Live Updates Damage Multipliers Stacking Fix Istaria Community Manager
March 28, 2022

This will take effect on 3/29 after maintenance.

A bug was introduced with a fix released in February. The issue introduced was that stacking damage multipliers were no longer stacking. Rolling back the fixes from February will re-introduce other bugs, so in the short term we've implemented the following workaround:

Damage multipliers will stack again, but with a maximum limit of 500% damage.

A more permanent solution will come later as development time permits. We're sorry this issue made it onto the live shards and hope this workaround is received well.

Thank you,

Istaria Development Team
