Update of the client, the maps and the game content


It has been too long since the last update. But that does not mean that we stood idle.

The client got a lot of bug fixes that were reported to Mantis. Also the pathfinding in the client got changed to hopefully do what you expect it to do.

The changes done to the map and the game content as usual has a list:

  • Recipe content in Cistern Dungeons has been replaced.
  • Small ponds are now a water source and buckets and large empty bottles can be used there.
  • Hedge gate added around Galmair teleporter.
  • Guard Bre Southstar of Galmair adjusted to evict monsters beyond the hedge gate.
  • All mines in Galmair and Cadomyr had torch holders added to the walls.
  • Cadomyr's mines were widened some.
  • Range weapons will knock players back before death now.
  • Corpse Bile removed from Galmair Sewer spawn.

  • New characters will port into marketplaces now from Noobia Island. Welcoming NPCs were moved to accommodate this change.
  • Multiple exits from Cistern dungeons have been removed and port in spots are closer to the ladders.
  • Monster magic has been changed to roughly reflect what our player magic class system will be. There are healers, damage dealers, and summoners. Some can teleport but not all. The damage and strength of the magics were also adjusted per level of the monsters.
  • Price of baked potatoes was adjusted.
  • Player will now automatically turn to door when using a key.
  • Spawns for wasps and spider queen on the Plains of Boredom were moved to keep them to the east of the new Syrita Bay Canal.
  • Barrels are not passable anymore.
  • Dyeing cannot produce more cloth than one had before.
  • The messages for coin toss games were corrected.
  • Quests and screenshots are now also shown on the start page.
  • Upon using an NPC, a selection dialog is shown with common conversation options.
  • NPCs won't react on random text anymore.

There are also some changes done to the homepage over the last weeks:

  • Some untranslated texts of the account system were translated.
  • The download page of the website was updated.
  • A Data Privacy Policy was added to the website.

We hope you like this new update. Have fun playing Illarion!

New Update for the Client, the Map and the Game Contents


Today there was another update of the parts of the game that are named in the title.

The Client mainly contains bug fixes of the reports that were sent to Mantis. Also movement is now automatically stopped after a teleport. This means if you use a portal or stairs you have to release the movement key or mouse button and press it again to continue moving. Also switching the attack target was sightly altered. It should work a little better now.

The game contents and the map got the following updates:

  • Made some changes needed in the Dark Hole Mine.
  • Making lamp oil now requires a new bottle.
  • Lantern inform modified.
  • Lake of Life dungeon available to roll out and will be made accessible during an upcoming quest.
  • Hints of the day modified to match new crafting distribution.
  • Using empty apple and cherry trees now starts wood cutting instead of an inform about not bearing fruits.
  • Buccaneer's Lurk modified.
  • The radius of one spawn in Akaltut's dungeon was adjusted.
  • Made a small map adjustment in the lower level of Mt. Letma.
  • When they have been attacked by archers, monsters will drop ammunition on their death again.
  • Treasures no longer disappear when player characters are too far away.

Have fun with this new update. You can discuss and ask questions regarding this update on the forum.
