Rise of the Robots

After the Fall of Rachival, all work on Bots and other mechanical devices was forbidden by the Empire. Most complied, but for some old habits die hard and work on various designs continued behind closed doors and in the shadows.  Gangaf and Versanto, in particular, continued to tinker and develop new technologies and schematics for their bots.  Using a mothballed design known as the JJ-180, a new line of bots have been created and now ready to be your Right Hand M…er... Bot. These Bots, designated the JJ-200 series, are available in three models; CombataBot v1.0, SpellaBot v1.0, and MediBot v1.0.

The original Bot models utilized Fuel Cells for power.  These cells became blighted and any Bots that remained after the Fall were transported and handed over to Darkstaff’s Express Archive and Disposal for quick disposal. Monitoring teams have noticed an increase in Blighted Resources showing up in the world. Darkstaff’s Express Archive and Disposal is under investigation for improper disposal (again), but if you’re in the market for some high risk / high rewards construction, these Blighted Resources might be for you.

You can now change your character’s appearance by purchasing an Appearance Change Token and giving yourself to makover. Special for dragons are new tint appearance options, and the ability to view your character as Juvenile, Adult and Ancient while performing your appearance change.

While playing Istaria, you will notice there has been many updates to the interface to provide new filters, search and shortcuts to make things easier.

Whether you are just starting on your journey in Istaria, or you are an experienced warrior of many years, the people of Istara need your help. Will you heed their call?
