Happy Anniversary


Make sure you have re-downloaded the new client from the 4th of September. 
If you are using this client already, make sure to restart the client to check for updates automatically.

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of you for your incredible support. It's been an amazing journey, and we've come a long way in just one year. Your unwavering belief in us has fuelled our growth and determination. As we celebrate this milestone, we want you to know that we're here to stay, and our commitment to serving you remains as strong as ever. With your continued support, we look forward to many more years of success and collaboration. Thank you for being a vital part of our journey, and here's to a bright future together!

The Helmet of the Ancients quest has long been known as a challenging adventure with an underwhelming reward. For years, brave adventurers embarked on this difficult journey, only to find themselves with a helmet that didn't quite match the effort put in. However, in response to the feedback and dedication of the player community, the helmet has undergone significant changes to make it a more worthwhile reward. The true extent of the enhancements will be up to the players to discover. The Helmet of the Ancients now offers a more satisfying experience for those dedicated players.

We are thrilled to announce the long-awaited opening of Mac Noodles, a delightful food shop that pays homage to the rich lore of Tibia. Inspired by the tales and adventures within the game, Mac Noodles offers a mouth-watering menu that combines creativity and flavour to transport you to the fantastical world of Tibia. With savoury dishes reminiscent of iconic in-game locations, we invite you to savour the taste of adventure with every bite. Join us as we bring the magic of Tibia to your dining experience, and embark on a culinary journey like no other at Mac Noodles!

Further to the announcement above, we've also added exciting new food items to enhance your RPG experience. Whether you're a knight, paladin, or mage, there is something for everyone. Some of these items can be bought, while others can only be looted from monsters, adding an element of excitement to your culinary quests. So, fuel up and enjoy this tasty update – because heroes need good food to conquer challenges!

H.L. has undergone a modern makeover! In response to player feedback, HL now extends even better offers to trusted friends, making your interactions more rewarding. But that's not all – HL is now open to trade with everyone, including the formidable women adventurers of our world. So, whether you're an old friend or a newcomer, come visit HL and experience the updated and inclusive trading experience!

Prepare yourselves, for the realm is about to be engulfed in chaos! The malevolent demon Orshabaal, ancient and relentless, is on the brink of invading our lands. As the dark clouds gather and the ground trembles, heroes must unite like never before to face this formidable foe. Gear up, sharpen your swords, and summon your most potent spells, for the battle against Orshabaal promises to be a showdown of epic proportions. The fate of our world hangs in the balance, and the suspense for this impending invasion is electrifying. Are you ready to stand against the darkness and emerge victorious?

New Modern Client

A new updated version of Modern Client has been released. This new client will require re-downloading from the website.

Please re-download the new client ASAP, as the old client will soon longer longer be able to connect to the server!

The new client has improvements to the walking mechanics. Issues with movement speed calculations with side stepping have been resolved and should now no longer create a rubber-banding effect when side stepping. Further to this, the behaviour for how paralyse is dispelled has been correct. Paralyse should be removed at the end of your current walk animation. The old client was changing speed locally which would cause some additional rubber banding. The new client now refreshes your speed at the end of your current step for more a more realistic behaviour.

The Cam Recording/Playback Controls module have also been improved. Cam Record files will now save any play from the same folder and will no longer require copying from the record location to the playback location. Cam records will now be saved in the applications AppData directory. Buttons have been updated in the client Play Cams menu to create a shortcut to this location, as well as open the records folder for ease of use. Further to this, Cam Playback Controls have now also been added. You can now increase/crease the cam playback speed with the Page Up and Page Down key. You can also skip 60 seconds of play time at the current playback speed  using the Home key (Eg it will skip 120 seconds if the current playback speed is set to 2x) and reset the current playback speed to 1x and show the current Cam timestamp using the End key.

Various minor GUI fixes and adjustments have also been made to improve that nostalgic feel of the client. Changes of this nature will continue to come and update automatically when opening the client.

Further to these changes, improved security settings have also been made on this client to not only fight off and prevent cheaters using external software, but also assist staff with investigation into use of such activities.

The new client uses a new working directory, so users will need to create a backup of their minimap file and save it to the new client's working directory. Instructions for this can be found here

Please be sure to re-download the latest client as soon as possible from the website

Suggestions Polls

Some updates have been made to the website as we look to collect more feedback from the community about possible updates.

A few new polls have been posted on the website, please head over and tell us how you feel about some of the new polls.

If you have any suggestions you would like to see voted on via a Poll, you can submit a suggestion (See pinned messages here on Discord)


Connection Improvements

We have been investigating some individual reports of issues with lag spikes or disconnecting from some users over the last couple of weeks.  We have been taking these kinds of reports seriously and working with our upstream hosting provider and ISP to look into these issues, specifically affecting players from the South Americas region.

We've since received update that some routing and bandwidth improvements have been made which should hopefully improve performance for these players.

If you do and/or are still experiencing connectivity issues, we would like to know, as we still always strive to improve the quality of play on Nostalther. If you believe you may still be experiencing these kinds of problems, please submit a ticket via Discord.

Account Security Updates

Some updates and improvements have been made to account security on the Nostalther Violet webpage regarding registered email address, passwords and account changes.

Firstly, the email verification system has been improved. You were previously able to change the registered email address on your account at will. Now, if your email address has been verified, submitting a request to change your email address will now submit an email change request that will take 14 days to approve. Once the waiting period has expired, you must log back into your account to confirm the change. After changing your email address, the new email address will be non-verified and will require verification again. (Non verified email addresses can still be changed at will)

Character deletion has a 7 day waiting period. However now, instead of being deleted automatically after this period, you will need to log back into your account to confirm or cancel the deletion. This is to avoid any accidental account deletion from occurring. Characters pending deletion are now also hidden from the character list in game. 

Further to these changes, submitting any request to change your email address or password will send an email notification to the email address that is registered with the account. (Please note that these email notifications will only be sent if the email address on the account has been verified

Thank you for playing Nostalther!

House and Rent Changes

Players that own a house that they are no longer eligible own will no longer be able to pay rent on that house until they meet the requirements for owning that house. IE If a player owns a guild hall and is not a guild leader OR if a free account player owns a house that has more than 1 bed, is larger than 25 tiles or belongs to Darashia, Ankrahmun or Port Hope, they will not be able to pay rent, even if they have money in their depot. 

Further to this, the rent price of most houses has been increased. Currently the house rent price is approximately 50gp per square tile in the house, but this previously did not count walls that can have hanging items, tiles that contained beds, ovens, dustbins, casks, tables or statues. The change in rent prices for houses will be reflected on the website. 

This change comes to address the number of houses owned by accounts that have since stopped playing and let their premium time run out, or players that had purchased houses and traded them to players that do not meet the requirements for owning that house. 

Some further updates will also be introduced soon for Guilds that will require multiple Vice Leaders to remain active and also free account players will soon no longer be able to benefit from offline regen from sleeping in beds. 

These changes are coming in as there are a number of accounts currently taking advantage of the situation. These accounts will now need to contribute back into the economy by purchasing premium account from from the shop or trading other players.

Nostalther Violet Test Server


Nostalther Violet is based on The Violet Project engine to re-create a realistic, true classic Tibian experience.

The formulas of spell damage, monster damage, shielding defence, armor, are all reverse engineered from original server files. All NPCs and original monsters are the original cipsoft monster files, so there is no inaccuracies. Player regen and spells are also using classic 7.4 values. That's slower regen and less mana than it was in 7.72 and above.

Nostalther Violet aims not only for that nostalgic feel but also longevity. We want achievements to be earned and truly feel rewarding but take into consideration that many of us have busy lives and are not able to commit the same amount of time we once did back in the day. Accordingly, the server rates are kept low. With consideration not everyone has 24 hours a day to commit to training, skills advancement rates are slightly higher. We will carry out a testing phase prior to official launch, but the proposed live server rates will be as follows:

Experience: 1x
Skills: 1x
Magic: 1x
Loot: 1x
Gold: 1x
Respawn: 2x

Community and Administration
Wanting to ensure their is a level playing field, we will stand firm on the rules. Use of any external software outside the the client engine itself will be considered against the rules. Use of bots, macros and multiclient will not be allowed. If you're aware of the Nostalther brand, you'll know we're not just a popup server that's here to make a quick cash grab, we're here for the long haul and believe the game should be fair for all.

Currently while the test server is running, there may be limited enforcement on multi client use, as the purpose at this time is to really stress test and have all aspects of the game checked out and tested so the appropriate fixes, changes and improvements can be made to ensure the live server is flawless from the start.

Similar to Tibia back in the day, we'll also be calling on some experienced and trusted members of the community to perform the roles of Tutors and Gamemasters to ensure those that need assistance in game can get it and that cheaters are quickly stopped, as software can't and will not ever be a 100% solution to rule breakers.

Premium services will also be available via the website shop. No stop items will ever be of the "Pay to win" type, such as exp boots, over powered weapons/armours or things that give players in an game edge. What we will have are the classic premium account features, with a few extras and other cosmetics for flexing purposes.

We have multiple options as far as the game client goes for Nostalther servers.

Wanting to keep the true classic feel, we of course support the original 7.72 client, with some customisations. The customisations for this client are basic WSAD walking option and a built in CAM Recorder and Player.

Click for Classic Client Previewimage

We also have a custom OTClient available. Some of the animation styles are slightly different in this client, but still uses the same retro sprites for that nostalgic feel, but with the quality of life changes such as being able to open additional panels and containers. This client also has WSAD walking option, among other things.

Click for OTClient Previewimage

Not only do
 we have a PC client, but we also have a mobile client for Android devices. You'll be able to play Nostalther anywhere, even while pooping.
Click for Android Client Previewimage

Old School Features
The aim of this server will be to a hardcore, realistic, recreation of the 7.4 era. Some of the most quickly noticed features that Violet will have are:

Sudden Death and Magic Missile damage all players in stack
UH Trap is possible
NPCs only sell blank runes
Learning spells are based off magic level and have no level requirement.
Sorcerer and Druids wands/rods do not exist

Monster Overspawn
Monsters lured away from their home position, will not be removed and instead spawn again.

Click for Monster Overspawnimage

Action Cooldowns and Exhaust
The action system is that of the original 7.4 system.
While using mana fluids your spells will be exhausted for 1 second. Using healing runes will not cause exhaust for spell casting.
No exhaust when using items and then moving items.
Walking with arrow keys and dragging items can also be done without having to intermittently let go of your keys.

Click for Action Cooldowns and Exhaustimageimage

Monsters AI and Loot
Monsters will spawn with their loot. This warlock is able to block (sparks) damage from floor trap, we know for sure he is wearing a Golden Armor or Blue Robe!
Intelligent monster pathfinding. Ranged monsters will even step back towards their target instead of keeping distance.
Monsters and summons will turn towards their target each action interval, even if their target is unreachable.
Monsters only switch targets upon completing their actions, so fast floor switching does not give them enough time to reset their target and attack and cast spells every time you switch floors.

Click for Monsters AI and Lootimageimage

Monster Actions and Exhaust
Unlike other OT servers where monsters have a cooldown, monsters in real tibia had no cooldown. They could cast all their attacks on the same interval.
Ranged monsters execute actions every 1 seconds at a distance, as well as take an extra attack while stepping. Because of this, they are more likely to combo/spam attacks while running towards/away from you!
If monsters are in melee range, they will revert to casting spells every 2 seconds.

Click for Monster Actions and Exhaustimage

Classic Spell Casting
Spell casting works using their original syllables!
Quotation marks are also not required if there is only 1 parameter.
Click for Classic Spell Castingimage

Summons Intelligence
Summons pathfinding is more accurate. Summons will stand 1 tile diagonally or 2 tiles in a direct line.
Summons will move out of the way when walking into the, instead of walking in the same direction as you are.
Monsters summons will continue to attack, even if their master has no way to reach you, instead of the summon giving up the attack.

Click for Summons Intelligenceimage

Classic Respawn
Monsters respawn on their home position, additional monsters spawn in a "formation" running anti-clockwise from their home position.
Monster spawns have a single respawn timer, spawning 1 monster per interval, instead of each monster having it's own timer.
Monster respawn time is not paused when blocked. If the respawn timer has elapsed, it will respawn the instant the screen is not being "blocked" by a player

Click for Classic Respawnimage

The world map is converted from the original Tibia map .sec files combined with many many hours of 7.40 Tibicam tracking merged in.

The main aim of this server is to to recreate the feel of 7.4, but not to limit the places to hunt and explore. Accordingly, places like Ankrahmun and Port hope will be kept, but converted to the 7.4 style.

Click for Classic Port Hopeimageimage

Around the map are various cosmetic changes or customisations to revert areas of the map back to before 7.4 as well. Be careful where you explore, risk of lured monsters is very real! There will also be more added custom or retrograde content added to the world as time goes on, but finely tuned to fit in with the 7.4 feel.

Click for Dwarf Bridgeimage

With the idea of longevity in mind for Nostalther Violet, upon the live launch, many quests gated behind doors with level requirements that reward mid/end game items will also be reworked. I want looted armours and rares to really feel earned. Hitting a certain level and just knowing you're gaurenteed an item update doesn't give give that feeling I'm hoping for. It also floods the market for lower tier equipment, lowers their value value and weakens the item economy. Accordingly, most (except for The Annihilator) will have their item rewards removed and replaced with alternate rewards. If you want to upgrade your items, you'll need to loot these items yourself.

This thread far from covers everything in the server, but I'd now like to invite everyone to join, play and provide your feed back on how you think it feels and what you think the server should add or change.

A Test Server is currently online and available to play. Please bear in mind that characters will be reset for the official Launch and EXP rates are currently boosted so that players are able to reach higher levels and properly test the servers content. An NPC is also available in Thais that will also give players 10k gold every 10 levels.

Experience: 24x
Skills: 16x
Magic: 8x
Loot: 2x
Gold: 1x
Respawn: 3x
