Urgent: Legends of Aria is leaving Steam

Notice from July 2022

Legends of Aria recently announced that the game is being removed from Steam, but it remains listed at this time during a grace period to allow existing users time to move to standalone accounts.

New players should avoid Steam and use the normal standalone version of the game.

Existing Steam users please see the announcement posted in the LOA Discord for details on how to migrate your account from Steam to a standalone account.

Please note that Shards of Britannia staff has no control over the Steam migration process, please direct all concerns or questions to Legends of Aria staff.

Unidentified musical instruments will now properly identify

  • There's a known issue with some objects not being able to be unpacked in houses such as, but not limited to: cauldron
  • There's a known issue with some objects being able to be placed outside of the house foundation/walls, or in the yard

Warning: It is not intended to be able to place objects outside of the foundation/walls of your house. If you have objects placed out of bounds they may be subject to adjustments to make them in-bounds, or in some cases removed if they are blocking pathways. The small front yards are intended only for vendors or a guildstone.

Reminder: the Small Workshop and Large Patio houses are temporarily disabled for fixing, and we will try to make them available ASAP

Non-faction players can no longer create collision with, heal, or give beneficial spells to faction players

Power hour will no longer expire after 60 real-time minutes from activation, instead will expire after 60 minutes of in-game playtime, with the same 22-hour cooldown from the time you started it last

This means if you log out before using all of your Power Hour then you can log back in and use what's remaining before the 22 hours is up, after which Power Hour will be reset and you will be able to activate it again

The Paralyze spell now interrupts the victim's spell cast on success The use of an invisibility potion now breaks spell casts Skeleton Keys now properly open chests of any level regardless of lockpicking skill Carpentry kegs have been fixed and no longer produce deeds

We'll remain offline for now while we work to solve this latest batch of issues. No ETA at this time.

Recent patch notes for Test Center are being maintained here for the time being, in addition to Discord's #test-center-patch-notes channel: https://forums.legendsofultima.online/d/28-test-center-patch-notes

We'll be back online shortly. We've had to rollback to a save state of 10:40pm UTC/6:40pm US EST to avoid potential data integrity concerns that were due to the connectivity issues being experienced. We apologise for this, however we don't want anyone losing items etc., and this is the only way to be sure.

  • Fixed issue with house security not working for Owners in some cases (you may need to release/re-secure containers if they are affected)
  • Fixed issue with the Buccs Den/Minoc archway teleporters getting pets stuck
  • Increased paralyze immunity duration
  • Earth elemental spawn chance added to Mining
  • Fixed issue with being able to use the Moongate in Limbo while dead, it's intended for you to resurrect using the Shrines first before leaving
  • Fixed an issue with pre-written books not being useable
  • Added tooltip to Guildstone to explain how to move it
  • Fixed issue with being able to use crafting tools from the bank

Due to ongoing connectivity issues, the server will remain offline until further notice. There is no ETA at this time.

We are back online in the alternative datacenter. Please note that we had to rollback to approx. 25 minutes before our normal shutdown time to preserve data integrity. This was due to the small blerp which happened around that time earlier today.

Apologies for that inconvenience, and thank you as always for your patience.

Server will be coming down for a short restart to address some issues around 17:15 UTC.

"The Britain Royal Guard is seeking mercenaries willing to investigate three different suspected Dens of Evil. Our trackers have given us approximate areas for these Dens and they appear to be bound together with an unknown magic. We have sent many brave mercenaries to each already, but no matter how many times they cleanse these ritual sites.. they return. This is unlike anything we have seen before..."
