Live Updates Delta 310.6 Istaria Community Manager
May 5, 2020

The Arena at the Ruin of Tazoon

  • Quests will no longer check the quantity of Challenge Tokens you have in your inventory, but they are now level restricted (T1 to 50, T2 to 70, T3 to 90 and T4 to 100). They now award XP when completed appropriate to the minimum level they can be received.
  • Rewards sold by Challenge Master are now tiered by adventure levels and expanded to level 100. Prices have been adjusted to fit current Challenge Tokens quests awards.
  • T2 and T3 Heroes now drop trophies appropriate for their level. Additional trophy quests have been added to Trophy Hunters.
  • Gudal drops a bounty item that will interest a Bounty Master who has arrived at the Eastern Outpost.
  • All Welger Heroes have a chance to drop a Challenge Token of their level.
  • New T1 to T3 Hero challengers (Expert and Master) joined the arena with daily quests. But you have to defeat all challengers of a Tier every day to unlock the quests.
  • Gudal the Champion will come in an Exalted version once a week to the arena. Prepare yourself for a fierce battle and take friends with you... really....
  • You can now only take one arena quest at a time.
  • Welger Heroes, as well as various Welger bosses around the Ruin of Tazoon, will properly have Welger traits as designed. Welger traits are random augmentations giving monsters a bonus. The number of traits they can have varies with their level.

Blight Updates Blight Simulation Update Istaria Community Manager
April 26, 2020

Game World

Fixes:

Monsters will properly despawn quickly ( 30 seconds ) after being looted
Update how monsters despawn to ensure they are not left “dangling”

Sim

Features:

  • Allow teleport event to specify rotation so player ends up facing where they need to be looking / going
  • Allow a spawn region to also specify a rotation for monsters spawned. This is used with monsters that don’t move, and need a fixed rotation
  • Allow monsters to have dynamic abilities / items so they can switch out when spawned
  • Allow quest steps to popup a text block for books, scrolls and other text
  • Allow AquireItem quest trigger to advance a quest if an augmentation is received
  • Get partial XP for crafting done using non-primary school skills

Fixes:

  • If the existing structure, or structure intended to built doesn't have a valid polygon for testing, still allow the structure to be built.
  • If structure is built unlimited, then was only allowing 1 to be built
  • Ablative Trigger should fire OnTimerEnd if present
  • Correct feedback message for price / percentages "I'll list your <item name for..."
  • Streamline how appearance information is sent / stored on the server.
  • Correct calculation of damage modifier bMaximumDamage so that it always does 100% of the damage

Live Updates Chaos Unscheduled Maintenance Istaria Community Manager
April 16, 2020
We recently made a change to our hardware setup to increase the total number of monsters spawned. This change had the side effect of also causing initial monster spawns after maintenance to take slightly longer, but as maintenance is a block of time, extra time to start spawns seemed like a reasonable trade off. Unfortunately we stumbled upon an ancient bug where if a monster takes too long to spawn, it effectively breaks the spawn region. This problem never occurred on the development server or Blight, but with Chaos and the different complexity of the database, the extra bit of time tipped us over a threshold and some monsters failed.

Now that we've identified what's causing the bug we will be working on additional fixes. All these changes are part of a bigger set of changes so that we can support future content. We're confident we'll be able to get a fix in place and please be assured we're working non-stop on this problem.

We'll update you when more information is available (we're trying to keep the number of mentions to a minimum). We've also implemented more fixes for the disappearing NPC problem, and we're confident that once this troubled time is over, things will be much better on Istaria's shards. Thank you very much for being so understanding and we will not rest until things are working properly again.
