Community News Double Experience Periods Sarsilas
December 1, 2020

As you may have noticed, the post-rollback 2XP event had ended  today, Tuesday, December 1st, during maintenance.

However, our holiday 2XP period is scheduled to last as normal for two weeks during December! The tentative dates are as follows:
December 14th, 2020 through December 28th, 2020

We have split these events for two reasons.

  • Returning players who come for the holidays will not feel slighted by a sudden adjustment in the holiday double experience period.
  •  Extending the current period two more weeks is exceptionally long and out of the scope of our event period - sorry!

Live Updates Live Client 402.25.1 Istaria Community Manager
December 1, 2020

Features:

  • Cows now have a new sleep animation that looks less dead.
  • “Token wallet” interface container for holding all tokens.
  • Gnome houses now have beds. Tazoon Guild Hall benches are now more Gnome friendly.
  • Added a warning message if a special environment event is going on (like Winter) but you have special environments disabled.
  • Added a warning message if you disable critical prefs that might affect your ability to play the game (making NPCs invisible for example).
  • Allow abilities to be right-click used from the ability window

Fixes:

  • Fixed a very rare issue where dragging an item can cause the game to crash.
  • Quest AutoTracker defaults to ON for new installs.
  • Temporary fix to not display "You did the most damage" server messages (monster sending tells to grouped players upon death).
  • Fix for the icons on the lair map being in the wrong positions.
  • Fixed an issue where special events like Winter might incorrectly affect some files that it shouldn’t be.
  • Quest Tracker Modifications: Fix for AutoTrack loading all quests upon login.
  • Fix "close chat window" closing the wrong chat + chat crash
  • Correct various quest / NPC dialog windows links working. Can test changing schools with Cleric Beccan Tandis at 22633 22709
  • Added helper item inside mossy boulders so players don’t get stuck

Live Updates Servers Online! Istaria Community Manager
November 20, 2020
As you are all aware, we recently moved servers from our old location in the west coast to a new location on the east. There has been some confusion as to why we moved, and what caused this extended downtime these past few days.

Community News On the move! Istaria Community Manager
November 16, 2020
We'll be completing the final phase of our server upgrade tomorrow during maintenance - the shards will be shutting down at the normal time, and maintenance may take longer than normal while we make sure everything went smoothly. Assuming everything goes well, maintenance won't last as long as last Tuesday, but we ask everyone to be patient while we finish it up. We'll let everyone know when the shards are up and running again!

Live Updates Adventure XP Potions Istaria Community Manager
November 13, 2020
As some of you may have noticed, any Greater or Superior Potions of Adventure Experience you had in your inventory have been removed.  This was the culmination of changes we made in the last update (removing them from vendors, attuning them, etc).  To compensate for this, players who had the items in inventory were issued refunds proportional to the original cost and the number of potions they had remaining.

Community News Extended Maintenance Istaria Community Manager
November 10, 2020

On Tuesday we'll be doing some prep work to upgrade our server infrastructure and make a geographical move to improve connectivity for our European players. We apologize in advance for the trouble, but expect that our North American players will appreciate the slightly faster response times (faster hardware), and our European players a faster internet transit (ping times). Expect the shards to be offline much of the day.

The servers are back online and things are looking good at the new facility, we should be making the new move very soon!
