- 2 - A New Home for Santa's Little Helpers
- 3 - Solve New Mysteries!
- 4 - Awesome New Game Features
- 5 - Creepy New Monsters
- 6 - Deck the Halls
New and revised Areas
- Ab'Dendriel surface and underground (cosmetic changes with new tree wall set)
- Rookgaard (it should also not be possible anymore to get stuck without a rope, for example)
- Pits of Inferno (new hunting and quest area for Premium Accounts under the Plains of Havoc)
- Dream Realm, (new quest area for Premium Accounts under the Plains of Havoc)
There was also an overall polish of the Tibian map with new objects (e.g. grass stubs or dungeon decoration), so if you are tired of all this questing, you can just take a walk in old areas or dungeons and check out the things which have been changed. As for the Pits of Inferno and the Dream Challenge you will find a few hints on how to enter there areas in the quest section. There are also many new raids. Everyone can have fun with the new Christmas Event, but only the most experienced adventurers should dare to face the new bosses which are hiding deep below the surface of the Plains of havoc.
The following features were also added:
- Characters will automatically receive an empty bag after their death if their backpack slot is empty
- Poison Damage when drinking slime has been reduced and will stop before the character dies
- Revised NPCs on Rookgaard (beginner-friendly); it is not possible anymore to accidentally sell/buy an item
- All healers will heal the character even when busy
- Just like drinking, eating will also make a sound now.
- "Select Outfit" dialog displays the name of the outfit
- Writeable documents contain the date they had been written (both when "used" and "looked at")
- Scroll arrows for tabs of chat windows flash up and indicate when new text was written in chat windows currently being hidden
- "You are dead" dialog after character died (with option to re-login with same character)
- Rookgaard trade channel (only for no-vocation characters); senior tutors and above can open both trade channels
- Some raids now feature quests.
