Live Updates Live Client 400.201.0 Istaria Community Manager
June 19, 2020



  • Updated the Monster Window to allow stacking of health bars horizontally or vertically, this depends on the size of the window.
  • Add Tell option to Windows Player List, Player Search, and Group


  • Fixed players returning to idle pose when in combat under certain conditions (your character would stand idly but continue attacking as normal).
  • Fixed an issue where players who have very long names (>16 characters) wouldn’t be able to receive chat invites and their names were cut off in chat.
  • A number of issues has been addressed with changing forms (i.e Khutit form, costumes):
  • Fixed an issue where if you change form and then move, other players see your old form running on the spot.
  • It’s no longer possible to move while transforming (so you can’t slide around or fly around like that which was buggy).
  • Fixed an issue where you could in theory get stuck transforming and require a relog.
  • Fixed an issue where if you died while transforming you might not see you died / other players might not see it.
  • Fixed the player character disappearing for a split second when changing forms.
  • Fixed an issue where the player character’s head could disappear if you look around while transforming / wearing a costume.
  • Fixed an issue where if another player wore a costume and turned on the spot when on top of a building, they might visibly fall through the floor and disappear.
  • Fixed some more memory leaks.
  • Fixed falling off objects / teleporting to the surface when in lairs when first logging into Istaria.
