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

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.
