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.

We are pleased to announce that Legends of Ultima will be launching our 2020 Winter Event this Sunday 13th December at 11:00am EST

The event this year is different to previous years and we are proud to announce that we will be opening the Frozen Tundra for our players to enjoy.

There will be new monsters, mini-champs and champs to contend with. New armour and weapons to collect as well as dozens of new collectable items to aquire. There are a few more surprises and more details will follow in the next few days but there will certainly be lots to keep you busy during the holiday period.

We have enabled a higher verification setting for the Discord to prevent abuse. If you were affected by this please know we did not single you out, but you just need to either A) verify your phone number on your Discord account or B) send us an email requesting an exception at [email protected] if you cannot or choose not to verify a phone number. Thanks for your understanding.

Recently we have sometimes had issues trying to contact people back due to outdated/missing Contact Info setting in-game. Please make sure to keep your contact info up-to-date so that we can get back to you or ask questions about feedback to better understand issues being reported. You can access the Contact Info setting with the /contactinfo command. Make sure your Discord username matches what you see at the bottom left of your Discord screen, and you can left-click your username to copy it and easily paste it into the game. Thanks!

With the US presidential election underway, we would like to ask everyone to please refrain from discussing politics in LOU channels. We already deal with such serious issues in our everyday lives so let's keep it out of LOU and keep our community neutral. Thank you!

During today's regularly-scheduled restart, at 9am UTC, the server will remain offline for approximately 30 minutes to deploy the following patch: https://legendsofultima.gamepedia.com/Patch_10/27/2020

Earlier this week during regular maintenance we did some cleanup of the world and inadvertently most/part of the locked event area outside of Britain was removed. Sorry for that, it was not intended and we will be considering replacing it somehow.

The Gravedigger merchant has been added to an undisclosed location, happy hunting!

From now until 11/05 Paragon monsters will have a chance to drop a special Halloween item. We have introduced 4 new Halloween masks that can be blessed and dyed, as well as 2 new Halloween single-use dye bottles for dying your costumes. Happy hunting!

We've uploaded the answers to the questions we weren't able to get to on stream, and this will be where future episodes are given the same treatment. Thanks again for all of your questions, and we look forward to sharing more with you on our next stream!

Thanks for joining our stream today! Test Center is back online, and Wrong is available for testing. Head on up to the Britain Graveyard to find the portal to the entry.

To get back to Britain, you can of course Recall, or there is a portal south of the Wrong entry, down the road a little. Don't forget to give us some feedback over in #dungeon-wrong-feedback

It's been a while, however we're ready to get moving with our next stream! This will be scheduled for 10am EST/3pm UTC next Saturday 29th of August. If you can't make that time, don't worry, we'll be recording the stream and will make it available on YouTube after the fact, or you can watch the VOD on Twitch.

In the next day or two, we'll share a link that will let you ask questions in advance, in case you can't make it on the day. We plan to give you an update of where we are at overall, and look forward to sharing it with you.

Just a reminder, you can find us on Twitch at https://twitch.tv/legendsofultimaofficial

Test Center is back online for now, check the #test-center-patch-notes channel for recent changes

Hello everyone, recently the response times for help requests or emails have been a little slower than usual. We apologize if you've had to wait for a while to get a reply from us. We handle issues in the order they are received normally and sometimes it can take time to review, research and to reply back to everyone.

In some cases we have noticed that issues are resolved before we are able to help, which is great! So we want to thank all of you experienced players for your participation with helping others solve common issues, and also thank you for your patience when reaching out to staff.

We would like to remind all players of the Terms of Service that you agree to when connecting to any Legends of Aria-based product. Those Terms of Service can be found here:

https://www.legendsofaria.com/terms-and-conditions/

Please be advised that in all cases, we fully support immediate action taken on any violation of these terms of service, up to and including banning any accounts that participate in said violation. In addition, in order to protect the project and its affiliations, we will not enter into any further discussion on this topic, public or otherwise.

Thank you for your understanding on this important matter.

The update has been completed and the server is now on the latest version, please make sure you have the latest version intalled to connect to LOU.

Thanks to everyone that attended the stream and submitted questions. If you missed out, don't worry! The stream recording should be available soon, keep an eye out for it at https://youtube.com/c/stimwalt

Happy belated Canada Day & US Independence Day everyone! Make sure to log in sometime before 7/5 12:00am UTC to claim your fireworks wand to celebrate with. Stay safe!

We are aware that many players are looking forward to "June 21st" based upon the most recent YouTube video stating that we hoped to have some big news by Spring 2020. This was not intended as an actual deadline, and was never meant to be received as such, as it was more of a hopeful projection. Meanwhile, as many of you are keenly aware, the "human malware" that has impacted the world, has impacted us too, and things have slowed for everyone. We will be avoiding making such projections in the future unless we are absolutely certain of timelines. Apologies for any unintentional confusion, but we appreciate your passion and excitement for the project! Stay safe.

A new version of the client has been made available and the server is now up to date. Please make sure you have the latest client installed, thank you!

Welcome to May everyone!

Just want to drop by and give all of our dedicated supporters a big round of applause and thank you for continuing to support the project! In the past month we have been working on optimizing our infrastructure to prepare for the future, and we have also spent a lot of time cumulatively working towards the rest of our goals in the push to Britannia. Thanks to everyone that has helped with testing and participating in Test Center events. We'll keep working our hardest and hope to keep making you proud.

We know a lot of you are waiting to find out more about what to expect with the map change and many other changes coming with it, and we appreciate your patience while we continue to work all of that out. Thanks for being with us and remaining patient through our growth!

We should be all wrapped up with the maintenance reboots and the issue preventing ghost characters from logging in should be resolved. If you are still having an issue with login please let us know by emailing [email protected] or DM Gorgan. Thank you for your patience today!
