Blight Updates Blight Client 404.58.0 Istaria Community Manager
July 25, 2021


  • If a quest item needs to be used, that quest item will appear in the quest window where it can be easily clicked instead of having to locate it in the inventory. Note that this is a shortcut and you do still need the quest item in your inventory to be able to use it.
  • Added a new video option to prevent the mouse cursor from leaving the game window (which can be used to prevent it from escaping to a second monitor or leaving the boundaries of the windowed mode window). The mouse will be released if the game is no longer the active window or minimised.
  • If a heal is being capped at a certain maximum value then that value will now be displayed in the item information window.
  • Added buttons to easily set the split amount when splitting a stack.
  • Added a separate chat channel for NPC idle chatter (such as Town Crier messages) and added an option to completely disable this kind of message to the options menu.


  • Fixed an issue with the Ruined Tazoon decorative tower that would trap dragons inside its dome.
  • Fixed issue with Teleport and Recall sounds not working.
  • Fixed an issue where the text in the quest tracker window wouldn’t wrap properly and would get cut off at certain window sizes.
  • Fixed a spelling mistake in the character creation window where it erroneously said the “Right of Passage” (should be “Rite”).
  • Prevented the “add to hoard” popup when an item is in storage (it’s not possible to hoard something that isn’t on your character).
  • Clarified the message that appears when changing the UI scale option.
  • Fixed an issue where the resize icon can get stuck when resizing the Community Surveyor window.

Gather round everyone, for I have a story to tell you about the old days, yes... Mmm. "Magic", yes, a term you all know and all use, but did you know that's not the original term for the energy you wield for healing and harm? No, there's a much older term, a much more ancient one, in the language of the gods, known as the "Particle". Whenever you see the power of Primal surrounding a mighty Dragon, or the pure glow of the Paladin, what you see before you are Particles, taken from the very fabric of reality around you. According to the lore of old, everywhere in the world has these Particles, in a pool so to speak, and casters draw on this mighty Pool to gain the Particles to feed their magic.

Community News Developer's Desk 2021 Sarsilas
February 15, 2021
2021, A new year, a new Developer’s Desk!

Some of you might remember what these are, but for those unfamiliar: with these posts we hope to peel back the curtains to give you, our community, a better look at all the things that have gone on, are going on, and will be going on for Istaria in the coming period.

This past year has been hectic for reasons we all know too well.  I imagine you as much as I have heard enough about the reality of our world on the news, so all we will say is that we hope all of you are healthy and in a good place going forward, and that this coming year is an improvement to all.

With 2020 we focused around continuing the main storyline quests in the game. This was in the form of The Ruin of Tazoon and The Cult of Nazderon updates. These brought ruin to the symbol of the Empire and introduced a previously unknown invading force - and to top it all off, the return of a maddened mage-king!

But it did not bring just ruin and destruction, for beauty did bloom in many corners of Istaria and a whole set of islands rose from the tumultuous seas north of Drakul.

On the more technical side there have also been many improvements, our tech-wizards applied their magic on many fields improving overall game stability, as well as implementing many new features like antialiasing support.

However, this is all what has occurred this past year, now for the real meat and potatoes of this Developer’s Desk: What to expect in the coming year.
