Live Updates 24.1 Back to the Battlefield (Part 2) Istaria Community Manager
January 24, 2024

On Tuesday January 30th we will be taking down the live shards for the deployment of Update 24.1: Back to the Battlefield! This update has spent a lot of time in the oven and for a good reason: it brings the long awaited Combat Overhaul! This set of changes aims at streamlining certain actions within the system, making the impact of stats more visible & adding some new components to liven things up. But of course, that's not all this update will bring, the full change list follows below for you to read so you and your friends can prepare for this massive new update!

Due to the sheer size of this update, we have to break our community post into two parts. This is part two of two. Please see here for part one.

In This Post...
  • Pouch Changes
  • Key Changes
  • Content
  • Adventure
  • Craft
  • Monsters
  • Miscellaneous Fixes & Changes


Full Notes, Part 2 of 2

Pouch Changes
Ah pouches... The intended inventory sorter that has been overshadowed by backpacks and/or scale packs pretty much from day 1. In this update we bring a revised idea on pouches to give them an edge over the packs, as well as expand their range of available colors.

  • Backpack Pouches now inherit the parent container's maximum bulk and item stack capacity, rather than a tiered limit. This is true regardless of where the pouch is stored; player inventory, vault, or even in a structure.
  • As a result of the above, the various tiers of pouches no longer provide any specific benefit over another and the only difference is the icon color.
  • Backpacks and Scale packs now have a weight of 50, 45, 40, 35, 30 & 25 for Tiers 1 through 6. (was 55,50,40,30,25 & 20 for backpacks and 5 on all tiers for scale packs).
  • Scale packs now offer the correct amount of stacks when used as a container in an inventory; 125, 130, 135, 140, 145 & 150 for Tiers 1 through 6. (was 100 across the board, as an equipable they already had the right values).
  • New Colored Backpack Pouches:
    • Formulas have been added to create pouches of every dye color currently in-game.
    • The new Colored Backpack Pouch formulas are sold by fashion designers across the various racial cities in the following collections: Basic Shades, Complex Shades, Metallic Shades, Gem Shades, Azulyte Shades, Antique Shades, and Unique Shades.
    • The formulas require a new item known as Alchemical Dye Fixative, this item replaces the pouch patterns of the old colored pouch formulas, and is also sold by Fashion Designers.
    • A new set of Master Alchemical Dye Formulas have been added to Ghent Flaskshaper in Aughundell to fill out the missing products. These follow the pattern as dyes of lower tiers, requiring half of the resources needed for their respective dye kits, with the exception of the ones that require a monster component, those will still require 1 of the appropriate component.
    • The old colored pouches (e.g. Red Flaxen Backpack Pouch, Gold Silk Backpack Pouch, etc.) have all been marked as obsolete as the new system replaces the old and offers the same colors, however, any existing pouches will still receive the utility upgrade.
Key Changes
In the past keys have been somewhat problematic in their implementation. The changes we're putting in with this update should make them far more foolproof in execution, and result in less keys lost!
  • Keys will now instantly open (kill) chests that they are appropriate for, regardless of any damage modifiers present on the user. This has been applied to regular keys as well as those used in quests.
  • Removed quest completion requirement to Expert Key and Complex Key Mold formulas.
  • Expert Key and Complex Key Mold formulas are now sold by Finagle Biggletorque in Delgarath.
  • Expert Key and Complex Key Mold formulas aren’t attuned anymore.
  • Finagle Biggletorque sells all key patterns again.
