Blight Updates Blight Client 404.3.0 Istaria Community Manager
March 21, 2021
Gather round everyone, for I have a story to tell you about the old days, yes... Mmm. "Magic", yes, a term you all know and all use, but did you know that's not the original term for the energy you wield for healing and harm? No, there's a much older term, a much more ancient one, in the language of the gods, known as the "Particle". Whenever you see the power of Primal surrounding a mighty Dragon, or the pure glow of the Paladin, what you see before you are Particles, taken from the very fabric of reality around you. According to the lore of old, everywhere in the world has these Particles, in a pool so to speak, and casters draw on this mighty Pool to gain the Particles to feed their magic.

Blight Updates Blight Client 403.15.0 Istaria Community Manager
January 15, 2021

Features:

  • The game’s loading code has been rewritten which will greatly improve loading performance, allowing the game to load faster on the loading screen and stream assets ingame faster, as well as improving game stability.
  • The “Breath remaining” bar when underwater now always automatically centers and appears on top of other windows to prevent losing it.
  • The casting / ability usage bar will move itself back on screen if you accidentally moved it off and make sure it appears on top of other windows.
  • NPC Chat windows will make sure they are on-screen if they were accidentally moved off when greeting an NPC.
  • Additional optimisation has increased the client’s FPS.
  • The trade window now has a tab for your wallet, showing your currencies and their source similar to your wallet.
  • Both your wallet and the trade window can now show your currencies as a grid view, if you prefer to organise your tokens visually.
  • The map’s direction indicator is now higher quality and consistent in the default, sapphire, garnet, and emerald themes. Lava and ice already used this higher-quality icon.
  • Bee sounds from beehives are now quieter and have smaller radius
  • Add Use Option when you right click the Pet Window.

Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where the game could freeze while loading into a new area after a teleport.

  • Improved performance of how plot permissions are applied
  • The ‘Hide Passives’ button is now inline with the search bar in the character window ability tab.
  • Item icons will now downscale to fit instead of being cut off in the wallet window.

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.
