Due to a bug, players currently gain a higher experience bonus when hunting in a party with shared experience enabled. Instead of 5% shared experience bonus, party hunts currently yield up to a maximum of twice as much experience points per monster kill depending on the number of players in the party.
This bug will be fixed with tomorrow's server save. Until then, all players are free to hunt in a party and profit from this experience boost.
The waiting is finally over! The Tibia summer update 2012 has just been released. Time to mow down hordes of new monsters and head out on gnomish adventures!
Here is a short summary of the main new content and features that have been added to spice up your Tibia experience:
Amidst crystals and mushrooms, the Gnomes have always led a quiet life in seclusion, suspicious of outsiders, and hesitant to give their trust. Yet now that they are facing a serious threat, they are willing to recruit warriors who proved their worth by passing a sophisticated Gnome test. Once you have successfully joined the Bigfoots, a special auxiliary unit, solving missions for the Gnomes will let you gain reputation and help you to move up in rank.
Explore the new underground area, get your hands on new equipment and items, earn new outfits, mounts and achievements! Achieve the highest Bigfoot rank to get access to the challenge dungeons, a place to show your skills and see what you are made of. So are you in for some tough action and adventure?
With the release of the summer update, premium players can now also enjoy the new offline training feature which allows you to sharpen your skills in a particular field of your choice while you are logged out. Visit one of the training schools which can be found in all major cities and use the training statue of your choice to log out in order to activate offline training for your character.
Offline training allows you to raise your skills more conveniently and without having to use resources such as food. Therefore, it is less effective than training online. Also keep in mind that you can only train offline for up to 12 consecutive hours. Once your offline training pool is empty, you have to replenish it before you can hone you skills offline again.
Further new stuff is waiting for you. Mind your surroundings, fierce orcs may build a war camp near certain cities every once in a while, or you might run into the creepy, crawly Mamma Longlegs on your way to Venore. Moreover, a strange energy portal may open up sometimes. It leads to the Dread Guardian who grants you access to Devovorga's incarnations in exchange for tentacle pieces.
If you are looking for a new home, make sure to visit the ten cool new houses which are available for rent. Inspired by Tibians, made for Tibians!
A few other changes and fixes have been implemented with this update. We have listed them in the Auditorium so make sure to take a look.
Important: Please note that the Tibia stand-alone client will not patch itself after the update this time. Therefore, you have to download the complete stand-alone client from our website again to play Tibia and enjoy the new content and features:
Windows Tibia Client 9.6
Linux Tibia Client 9.6
Now it is your turn to explore and see!
We've heard you! TibiaNews has seen a vicious cycle of ups and downs throughout the years, and our team is hard at work trying our best to keep the news updated. But, we still need your help! As many know, we have a forum entitled "Suggestions and Contributions," a forum that is actually looked at by our editor Thuddy and our deputy edtior Redgoblin. Now, both are wondering - what suggestions do you have for TibiaNews to be successful for the rest of 2012? Recently we have been starting to seriously consider moving the forum to a more stable server, and a more stable provider; one that many other fansites use, vBulletin. We ask that if players have any suggestions before making such a move, or any information or contributions they'd like to say, to please post in our Suggestions and Contributions board. We will take each post seriously, and consider each suggestion. We thank you tremendously for your time!
It's not every day you see a guild that's willing to challenge its members. However, Caroline the Brave, a knight on Calmera, is looking to break tradition. Creating a new guild entitled "Brave," she hopes to be able to create a new guild for players - new and old - to start from Rookgaard again on new characters with "the Brave" in their name. Keeping anonymity could be key in this new guild, making it possibly even more fun running around with a character that not many people will know! On top of that, players in the guild get 10k when they reach the main land to help them buy equipment. So, are you ready to be a Brave one? Then check out the full post on the Calmera boards, and join!
Just like any other game world, Aurora, the new preview game world, is no different. They face the problem with botters, too. Teh Rolly Polly has come up with a list that has been used in the past on other worlds to help people know who the botters are throughout the hunting grounds. Although of course unofficial, the list is used to help serve the purpose to know who the fair players are - and not - of the communtiy. If you know someone who is botting and like to report them, or want to check out the list yourself, see the official thread on the forums, here.
Fateless, a guild on Astera, has recently started quest services completely free of charge! This month, the services will be held on July 14th, nine hours after server save, including The Ice Islands Quest, the Banuta Quest, Childrens of Revolution (mission 4), and the Demon Helmet Quest! Intrigued and want to sign up? No problem! Just check out the thread on the official Astera board, here, and sign up! Have fun, and good luck!
Ever wanted to make event planning on your game world a bit easier? Well, Green-dragon from TibiaML has had the same idea! They have recently started an Event Proposal Contest! "The goal of the contest is to write a proposal that is related to making the hosting of playermade events easier," states Green-dragon on the official thread on the events board. With a deadline date of September 1st, and simple rules to follow, this contest may be the right one for you! Check out the full details over on the events board, here.
