Blight Updates Blight Testing: The Fate of Tazoon Istaria Community Manager
January 3, 2020

The Fate of Tazoon

The next update has been released to the testing shard Blight. If you'd like to preview the update and help with testing, please be sure to send in a ticket on any issues or let us know in Discord

Tazoon, once the shining seat of the Empire of Istaria and a symbol of cooperation amongst the Living Races, has been devastated by a calamity. 

A pall of destruction and death hangs over the city and the lands surrounding it. Into this, a new force has emerged which stands at odds with the Empire and, according to those who fled the ruins, has killed or captured many within the walls.  It is now up to the Gifted to investigate, protect and strike back at this new enemy who has sown confusion and destruction in the heart of the Empire.

Those who are interested in this story should speak with Captain Bixben Lindnottin in New Rachival.
