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

Here is a link to the forum post on the Truth set of armors that have been in recent news.  Enjoy!

[A Dev+ Forum Post by Starr “Darkstarr” Long]

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.

The Making of East Longfall Wetland

As mentioned previously the devs have been focusing many of the scene rebuilds (aka “un-clones”) on the lower tier scenes near the cities along the paths of Truth and Courage. These are all Tier 1 – 3 scenes that players encounter near the beginnings of their play experience. In addition to being rebuilt, they are also adding side quests to them.

In Release 49 one of these scenes is East Longfall Wetland (the companion scene to South Longfall Wetland). It is a swampy Tier 1 area directly east of Aerie in the Longfall region.

[From a Dev+ Forum Post by Travis “Vas Corp Por” Koleski]

Hello adventurers! Here’s some early progress shots of work being done on East Longfall Wetland. It will be a Tier 2 Adventure Scene for newer adventurers around the area of Aerie.

Hope you enjoyed our progress! More coming soon!

Norgard Barbarians

Greetings Avatars,

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.

Barbarian Clans:
Stag Clan:
Wolf Clan:
Boar Clan:
Bear Clan:
Dragon Clan:


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.
