Live Updates Tuesday Maintenance Istaria Community Manager
May 31, 2022
We have a big update headed out the door. Finally! We're excited, as the "Stronghold of Nature" is a really fun release with new things to do in Istaria. Under the hood, we have a number of deep plumbing changes made to the server. Just like a real house, when you start disconnecting pipes under the house, it's going to take a bit of time to connect them all back together. So - yes this means an extended maintenance on Tuesday - but after Tuesday, it's extended fun with a fantastic new update and new tech to make the servers faster and more reliable.

  • The Guild Website link in the guild window has been made more reliable than it was before, and now properly shows a “are you sure you want to click this link” popup when selected.
  • Item details for Sacks no longer show a 3D image as the result doesn’t look good - Sacks now show their item icon instead.
  • When trading with an NPC that accepts tokens as currency (as opposed to coins), the game will no longer let you trade away your currency without asking for anything in return.


  • Further fixes to the Knowledge Window’s “Remember Filters” option.
Note: This client is not properly compatible with the Live shards of Chaos and Order and trying to use it there via the Patch to Blight option may result in unexpected issues.

  • 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.
