Live Updates Live Client 396.18.6 Istaria Community Manager
August 17, 2018


  • The Saris, Sslik, and Khutit races have had their emotes revamped, similar to the dragons’ revamp of last year. This means:
    • All emotes on these races will now play sound without requiring an _s added to the name.
    • All sounds have been updated to utilize existing racial sounds rather than cartoonish sound effects or music.
    • A few gender-related typos have been fixed in the emote text.
    • A few animations were broken due to utilizing the wrong racial animations (kick, kickspin, please/beg, explain). These have been updated with animations that are proper for the race, preventing jaw clipping and other awkward broken limbs.
    • All of these races can now use the same animations, meaning that the saris have now gained the emotes ‘explain’, ‘drink’, and ‘kick’!
    • Various emotes that were simply renamed versions of other emotes have been hidden from the user interface, but can still be accessed via chat commands. These emotes include: beg, bye, cheer, growl, hello, peer, and shake.
    • A new emote has been added to these three races: hover.
  • Dragons have gained five new emotes: craft, pick, stand, stand2, and warcry. The original ‘stand’ emote can still be found under the new name ‘statue’.  


  • The Fox pet no longer howls.
  • Icons for Draconic Celebration Cake and the bone components from the Almighty Cauldron have been corrected to not be cut off.
  • Gnomes, dwarves, humans, half-giants, elves, and fiend females no longer use an incorrect animation file for gathering resources like sand and water.
  • Treant Transition Animations
