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.

An issue with Fishing erroneously saying "go outside of town for gains" when you are already outside of town has been resolved. This hotfix will be available after the next scheduled server restart.

It's not going to answer every question, but we hope we've covered the important ones! Something to read while waiting for the main event:

We are back online. Have fun, go play!

  • Murderers who repent will now need to wait 72 hours to resume hostilities.
  • Murderers will now need to pay 200 gold per long term count when resurrecting.
  • Bosses in various high level encounters have gained new tactics and reinforcements based on the number of players engaging them.
  • Fixed a bug that would sometimes cause murder participants to not receive multiple counts.
  • Ranged damage and healing will now produce more threat.
  • Combat journal will now display entries in descending order.
  • Combat journal will now only refresh when new data is available.
  • Fixed a bug causing floating damage numbers to be reported twice.

Titles should now be fixed. Upon next login, you should be granted all missing skill titles.

We are still monitoring the issue of titles switching even when "Lock Title" has been selected- if you see this issue, please report it with /bug so we are able to triage. Thanks as always for playing!

  • Mana Vampire can be cast upon thyself again and will properly do a Resist and Gain check, where previously it would prevent it.

Map marker icons have had an optimization pass and have been re-enabled. Just a heads up that we may need to further optimize or change the way the map marker icons appear but will try this for now.

A bug allowing users to repeatedly magically lock dungeon chests for gains has been patched

Today on Memorial Day, we honor and remember all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us. We are eternally grateful and forever indebted!

-Short term murder counts should no longer reset upon death in the colosseum

-Looting any corpse but your own is disabled in the Colosseum

The server will be coming offline for some extended maintenance @ 9am UTC on 28 July. https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/timezone/utc

The server will remain offline for up to an hour during this time.

This evening we will be coming down for daily maintenance 15 minutes ahead of schedule. We will return to service at 5am US EST/9am UTC.

After this maintenance period, the server will restart once every 6 hours. We apologise for this, however it is a necessary step in order to ensure performance based on a very large increase in player count (thank you!) and a bug that we hope to resolve in the coming week. However, the restarts will now take 5 minutes instead of the 15+ that was the case previously.

You can check how long is left until the next restart by typing /nextrestart or /nextreboot in game. In this way, you can still plan your power hours etc. We will return to daily restarts as soon as we can.

Thank you, as always, for your patience.

  • Ankhs should now resurrect Red players in the world.
  • Buccs Den now has more Red Wandering Healers that are spread out across town.

It's finally time! Here is some more supporting information on what to expect:
