Summer Update 2021

Megasylvan Yselda.gif

July 12, 2021

New major quest in Bounac, new area in Issavi, new warzones, new world boss, Tibiadrome and more.

  • New quest which takes places in Bounac and underneath it with creatures similar in strength to those of the Kilmaresh Catacombs. In order to start this quest, it is required to have finished The Order of the Lion Quest.
  • Two new areas added to Kilmaresh, Ruins of Nuur and Salt Caves. No previous quest required to access it. The Kilmaresh Quest was expanded and received two new missions: Wanted and Aspiring Oracle.
  • New quest Too Hot to Handle involving the gnomes and "Those Below" continuing the lore of the Dangerous Depths Quest implemented with the Winter Update 2017. Such quest will require players to engage in repeatable missions, like digging their way through a lava wall while keeping monsters and their heat level in check. The more missions are made, more the "crystal shield" is upgraded and more areas one can visit and the longer one can hunt. The difficulty range of this new area is similar to that of the Asura Vaults.
  • A new world boss which appears about twice a year: The Abomination. Ten teleporters placed all over Tibia lead to ten different rooms. In four (randomly chosen) rooms, a mini boss will appear in each. All four mini bosses have to be defeated for teleporters to appear which take you to the final boss. Only Premium players can enter the teleporters. Its strength is expected to be similar to Gaz'haragoth.
  • Two new houses in Issavi: Marketplace 3 (here) and Hanging Gardens 1 (here).
  • Citizen of Issavi Outfits are now available to players. Outfit Citizen of Issavi Male Addon 3.gifOutfit Citizen of Issavi Female Addon 3.gif
  • New types of items modifiers were be implemented:
    • Specialised Magic Levels: items will be able to receive a magic level modifier for specific elements, e.g. "fire magic level +2", which means only fire damage spells are boosted. Possible elements include Fire, Earth, Energy, Ice, Holy, Death and Healing.
    • Cleave: on weapons with this modifier, the melee attacks will also cause damage to creatures adjacent to the main target and the player (called secondary targets), as shown below. A weapon with e.g. "Atk:10 physical + 50 fire, 10% Cleave" hits secondary targets with 1 physical and 5 fire atk.
      • Charms and leeches will not be triggered on secondary targets.
      • Secondary targets with damage reflection also reflect the Cleave damage back to the player.
      • Targets positioning:
Secondary target Main Target Seconary target
Unaffected Player Unaffected
Unaffected Unaffected Unaffected
Main Target Secondary target Unaffected
Secondary target Player Unaffected
Unaffected Unaffected Unaffected
    • Magic Shield Capacity: this modifier increases the amount of mana in the players' Magic Shield, both from the Spell and from the Magic Shield Potion. For example, a spellbook with "+50 Magic Shield Capacity, +5% Magic Shield Capacity" will increase a base magic shield of 500 to 575 (500 × 1.05 + 50).
      • The proportional increase is additive with other items. On the case above, a second item with "+20 Magic Shield Capacity, +2% Magic Shield Capacity", would lead to a magic shield of 605 (500 × (1 + 0.05 + 0.02) + 50 + 20).
    • Perfect Shot (aka Range Bonus): attacks dealt from the exact distance of the modifier will have a flat bonus damage. A bow with "+25 bonus at range 5" that would deal e.g. 250 damage on a target on range 4 would have dealt 275 damage on the same target at range 5.
      • This bonus only affects basic attacks and not spells, runes or charms.
      • Since this is a flat damage bonus, it's not affected by the player's level, skill or any other factor.
      • When using area-ammunition such as Diamond Arrows, only the main target receives additional damage.
    • Damage Reflection: players wearing shields with this modifier will partially reflect melee damage back on the attacker. An item with "20 damage reflection" will reflect a maximum of 20 flat damage:
      • The reflected damage cannot be greater than 1% of the maximum hit points of the attacker. This 1% limit must be respected even if the player is wearing more than one item with damage reflection.
      • Damage reflection cannot trigger charms or leeches.
      • Damage reflection also works on PvP combat.
      • Reflected damage cannot be reflected back by creatures with Damage Reflection abilities.
  • Additional Action Bars: it is now possible to have up to 9 total action bars in the client, three on the left, three on the bottom and three on the right side of the game window.
  • Mount and Outfit Presets:
    • Instead of clicking through all outfits or mounts to select your desired one, it is now possible to select them from a scrollable list or even search them by name using a text box.
    • A combination of outfit, mount and familiar and their colors can be saved as a preset and easily loaded again. It is possible to copy and paste the preset to share it with other players.
  • Hunting Tasks Expansion: Challenging Creatures is now also available as Hard tasks. New decorative rewards were be added to Walter Jaeger.
  • Tibiadrome: The replacement for the Monster Arenas. Fight solo or in a team up to 5 people against monsters without spending any supply, advance as many rounds as you can in order to get drome points, concoctions (potions with unique effects), Character Titles, and climb the leaderboards and a new highscore category (Drome Score). Drome points can be exchanged for decorative items and cosmetics.
  • The Depot item limit of 10,000 items for Premium Account players has been raised to 15,000.
