We sincerely apologize for the interruption! Due to an unforeseen issue, we were forced to bring the server down temporarily and perform a rollback, resulting in a loss of approximately two hours of progress. We understand the frustration and inconvenience this may have caused, and we deeply regret any loss of time or progress you may have experienced. Our team is actively investigating the situation to prevent similar occurrences in the future. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we work towards providing a more stable gaming experience for all players. Thank you for your continued support and dedication.

We have implemented AI enhancements to specific bosses, aiming to provide a greater challenge. This process is ongoing, and we continuously refine and adjust these modifications. Your feedback is highly valued and significantly influences our decision-making.

Moreover, there are new magical loot items available from various MOBs. These items can either enhance or counter specific abilities or spells used by our new AI. Brave warriors, go forth and seek them out!


25th May 2023 announcement

The server is coming back online. Thanks for your patience.


25th May 2023 announcement

During today's maintenance (9am Thursday UTC/5am Thursday US ET) the server will remain offline for up to 90 minutes while we perform maintenance.

Note that during this time, we will be doing another batch of Steam account migrations. If you are still waiting on your account to be migrated, please double check that you have provided the correct details, which include the EXISTING account ID and the NEW account ID to move your characters to.

We are unable to migrate you if you do not provide the correct details. After this maintenance, any grandfathered Steam accounts that were able to play on our server will no longer be able to connect. This is a vital step to move forward with our other client-related projects and we cannot wait any longer.

This doesn't mean you won't still be able to transfer any Steam accounts if you missed the boat - please visit https://shardsofbritannia.com/play and make sure you fill out the form and we will do what we can to cater for your request in the future.

Please keep an eye on #news in Discord to see when the server will be available again, and thank you as always for your patience.

Recently we identified and resolved an issue with Rental Properties. Specifically, if you rented a property and the rent expired from not paying, you probably received notice that your rental property belongings have been packed up and can be retrieved from the Account Vault. If you had a rental property prior to March 3rd, 2023 and the items from your rental were not recoverable, your items may still be stored and can be retrieved by staff. If you had this happen, please contact us for assistance and we will do our best to try to recover your items.


3rd May 2023 patchnote

We've identified an issue with Veteran Rewards for accounts that accounts that existed before the launch of Britannia on June 20, 2021. During the transition from Celador to Britannia we had attempted to clear everyone's Veteran Rewards records at that time, but it seems that several accounts still had old Veteran Reward records from prior to the launch of Britannia. These records have now been cleared, so if you transferred from Celador to Britannia in 2021 and you had issues with your Veteran Rewards, please check them again and you will find the old records have been erased.


1st May 2023 patchnote

  • Murderer Restrictions: Fixed an issue with characters being able to perform hostile actions against innocent players in dungeons while being murderer restricted in some cases
  • Murderer Restrictions: Fixed an issue with murderers being able to resurrect via wandering healer or ankh in dungeons, if they exist, while being murderer restricted
  • Added Moonglow to character creation town selection
  • Improved Hiding skill to allow hiding near other beings when you have not been engaged in combat with any beings recently and are not criminal


1st May 2023 announcement

It is intended for all characters to be able to enter, traverse and hang out in towns no matter their notoriety state. To be clear, murderers are allowed to enter protected towns and hangout, but they are unable to use any vendors in town, and they are subject to being attacked by anyone as well as being Guard whacked if they commit any crimes. Furthermore, it's intended for all characters to be able to enter the West Britain Bank rooftop hangout, even murderers. Combat is prevented from this space, as well as using the ladders/teleporters to the roof after engaging in combat, so there should be no concern about this. To learn more about how the Criminal System & Guards work, check out the Notoriety wiki page: https://wiki.shardsofbritannia.com/en/notoriety


30th Apr 2023 knownissue

We're aware of some unexpected behavior with draggable UI elements. Yesterday the team deployed a small patch to the SoB Launcher to try to resolve the long-standing issue with draggable UI elements not saving their positions until you log-out completely. The change deployed makes the client save draggable UI element positions periodically, every 30 seconds currently. Since there's reports of unexpected behavior, we're looking into the reports and will improve things as needed.


28th Apr 2023 patchnote

If you changed your pledge tier recently and your house did not get updated please (contact us)[https://shardsofbritannia.com/contact] for assistance


25th Apr 2023 announcement

The Easter egg hunt has officially ended for the season, we hope you had fun hopping around collecting carrots and smashing eggs! Reminder: The Easter Vendor will remain until June 1st!


18th Apr 2023 knownissue

We're aware of an issue with Magic Trap not persisting on containers across server transitions.

To clarify, when you cast Magic Trap onto a container and then go into a dungeon or another town, the trap goes away but the container stays red like it's trapped & that is not intended.

We will work to improve this as time permits. The best known workaround currently is to trap or re-trap your containers when you arrive in a new area. Static Crystals do not exhibit the same behavior, so they may be a desired alternative to the Magic Trap spell until this issue is resolved.

We apologize for the inconvenience but thank you for your patience while we work to address your feedback.
