Shroud of the Avatar – Update of the Avatar #255
Greetings Friends! Here’s what we have for you in this week’s edition of Update of the Avatar:
- Armor of Truth Full Set
- The Making of East Longfall Wetland
- Norgard Barbarians
- New Maps Added: Blood River Outskirts & Solace Bridge Outskirts
Armor of Truth Full Set
Here is a link to the forum post on the Truth set of armors that have been in recent news. Enjoy!
The helms and chest pieces went live in Release 48 as part of quests in the Outskirts (helms) and the new mines (chest pieces). Starting in Release 49 the remaining pieces of the armor (gloves, leggings, and boots) will start to appear as rewards for other quests.
In the wilderness of the Verdantis and Norgard regions hordes of barbarians and cannibals hold sway and terrorize the inhabitants. Occupied with their fruitless war with the Kobolds the Norgard nobility and military do little to keep the barbarian raids under control, only protecting the largest cities.
The barbarian clans each identify with an animal totem and the Dragon clan is the most fearsome.
In Release 49 we will be updating the existing placeholder NPCs with this custom art.
New Maps Added: Blood River Outskirts & Solace Bridge Outskirts
In Release 48 the devs moved over to their own version of what was formerly known as SotA Map for the in game map system which you can view on their website here. It is now hosted on Amazon Web Services so it loads much faster than before. Since it is a web service currently, and not part of the game client, they can push updates as frequently as they like without having to do a patch. This week they began adding new maps including Blood River Outskirts and Solace Bridge Outskirts.
