Shards of Britannia is now FREE to play! Create your account and play today.

Relog to fix combat issues. Stackables are being worked on.

  • (QOL) Players that deliver the killing blow on a non-player mobile will automatically open the corpse backpack if they are within looting range.
  • (QOL) New Right-Click Mutilate ability on non-player corpses will allow corpse pile micro-management by forcefully removing body piles while keeping the lootable backpack via the CTRL function.
  • Using the Harvest ability before Mutilate is ideal, as Mutilate will now automatically open the corpse backpack too.
  • Mutilate will also leave a bloodstain in the place of the body.

Test Center Hotfixes have been applied:

  • Fixed issue with the house menu not updating the label for decay stage after refreshing
  • Prevented placing houses over any objects
  • House placement now correctly looks for Housing subregions instead of Britain.Wind for validating placement & housing subregions have been placed throughout most of the world
  • Prevented picking up items recently dropped from a collapsed house by Young characters
  • Prevented trading items recently dropped from a collapsed house by all

As we grow in player count, we are tracking a performance issue that appears to be related to minimap icons (yes of all things.) We are disabling those and restarting to validate this.

We apologise for these teething issues, however we believe this will make a significant difference. We'll work on refactoring the minimap icon system and they will eventually return. In the meantime, use third party tools like http://lou-map.herokuapp.com/ to locate what you need. In particular, we'll have wandering healer locations up there shortly.

"We have found a place of great evil in the region North of Minoc. Trackers have informed us that a Northern Cave is filled with a monstrous and deadly Arachnid. We fear that this beast is linked to the creatures on the Peninsula. If they launch an attack on Minoc, we will be unprepared to defend against them. We beg you, find their nest and extinguish them. We will forever be in your debt warriors.”

~Julie the Artisan of Minoc
