Live Updates Gnomekindle Event Istaria Community Manager
February 12, 2013
  • Gnomekindle now has it's own permanent area on New Korelia. Gnomekindle Town has begun being rebuilt there and many of the familiar NPC's from previous years have moved there.
  • Added a new teleport pad that will take players close to Gnomekindle Town on New Korelia.
  • Many of the quests from previous year's Gnomekindle celebrations have been updated. Some of them are repeatable now but were not before. Repeatable quests are as follows:
    • Gnomekindle Tree Sparklies
    • Gnomekindle Tree Unbreakable Stone Ornaments
    • Hermey The Misfit Gnome
    • How Gnomekindle Came To Be (Lore Quest)
    • It's a Frightening World (for anyone with adventurer level 20 and up)
    • The Abominable Snow Beast (for anyone with adventurer level 20 and up)

    • More Sweet Treats for Gnomekindle (for bipeds only)
    • Natural Ornaments for a Gnomekindle Tree
    • Return for More Dragon Treats (for dragons only)
    • Traditions of Gnomekindle (Lore Quest)

  • Many of the repeatable quests will give players a special ticket at the end of it. This ticket(called "Vote For...) will be counted after the Gnomekindle event is removed on each shard and a special surprise will appear at the next Gnomekindle event. Players should hold onto the stack of items that they want to have counted in the voting, and all others can be deleted.
  • Lair Murals for Gnomekindle now properly require a pattern to complete.
  • New structures for players to build have been added. Two new house designs were added, one with a snow covered roof and another with twinkling lights added. A skating pond has also been added as well as a series of ice walls for players to make their plots all "wintry".
  • Forest Skulk Gatherer Finger now lists its proper usages.
  • Burris the Scout now offers Trophy quests through a simpler dialogue path.
  • Scroll "Raise Power V" now gives the proper buff.
  • Fixed the healing values on Minor Heal I scroll (they were reversed).
  • Jungle Crawler Gland and references to it are now known as the Jungle Crawler Soldier Gland.
  • These items now use a default resource icon: Fire Wolf Alpha Paw, Winter Wolf Alpha Paw, and Brownback Outlier Paw.
  • Son of Gigaroth now has more health, new abilities (similar to those of the Blighted Kwellen) and has acquired a posse.
  • Clap of Thunder now recycles every 90 seconds, but has a pre-delay (warm-up)
  • Elemental Arrow now has a 90 second recycle and has a range of 20 meters.
  • Kwellen Berserkers no longer receive the passive Parry ability.
  • Agh'kuk Chieftain, Agh'kuk Elite Warriors, and Agh'kuk Witch Doctor all now use the proper school.
  • Stone Flooring Decorative Square 20x40 and 30x30 have been replaced with the right models.
  • Stone Flooring Fancy Squares in 20x40 and 30x30 should no longer be the Fishbone pattern - it now has the correct texture.
  • Stone Flooring Sand now all use the correct unbuilt model.
  • Cotton Tapestries/Bolts were reversed (for skill and XP) on the Basic Guild Hall and have been corrected.
  • Quest "Learn to Make Dire Wolf Hide Grips" now properly gives you the Expert Animal Hide Processing formula instead of Journeyman and also makes no further mention of Maple Hide Tannin.
  • Quest "Learn to Make Dire Wolf Hide Grips" now allows you to have completed either of the "Hunting the Direst Wolves" quests (as a Ranger or Non-Ranger).
  • Quest "The Forest Skulk Threat II", the hidden step to loot the Odd Artifact will now become visible when you slay the Elder.
  • Made some steps in the quest Gaileach: The Myloc Queen (Part 2) into visible steps so players will have a better idea of what is needed in each step while doing the quest.
  • Antidote formulas are now priced correctly.
  • Expert Heavy Round Shield now requires 2 Bloodskulk Soothsayer's Ears instead of 1 for the Tier 5 shield.
