As a limited time bonus we have added Episode 2 access to these bundles! We will also be expiring several of the items that are included in those bundles including pets, weapons, decorations and homes. We are also discounting these items, some as much as 30%! For City level bundles this means a $1000 discount!

NOTE: This is a final expiration. Upgrades will not be allowed after these bundles expire.


We will be answering questions throughout the livestream, so submit them in the comments section below or on Discord chat during the event.

Watch @ShroudofAvatar updates throughout the day of the livestream. See you on Twitch!

    MORE Clarificaton on the Tabula Rasa book. I feel folks might think its like resetting your Quest line so they can do quests over to gain xp. I think some folks might mistake it for that and get upset when they realize all their hard work and efforts to get to a certain level is gone and they have to start over.

  2. oplekoplek

    I has questions!

    – Do dungeons make basements obsolete?

    – Are you open to having one or two stretch goals per release (for things like minor feature improvements) being community decided?

  3. SwamiSwami

    In the Q1 timetable I see no mention of giving any attention to main town scenes that still have under construction popups and need pledge reward NPC storylines and schedules. (Can you say Celestis?) This town also has a great stage with moving elevator for when the theatre system comes into play. Can you talk about what ideas are floating around for that system?

  4. Belladonna RoseBelladonna Rose

    Will we possibly be able to remove some of the scenes marked on our list for Teleport to Scenes? I dont need a mark for Hidden Vale and Novia..as it just takes you back to the last Novia location you were at not the one first marked. Also would like the option to remove POTs /PRTS from the list that i dont normally go to. Takes up alot of screen space for other potential useful markings. Thanks

    Q1) Will you guys be adding any new mobs besides seasonal bosses / normal bosses soon, or, at least, for episode 2 for us solo online players, as I very seldom play in a group, and I feel left out with all the new seasonal mobs / bosses that can only be defeated by groups, or the few godly players that can solo almost any boss in SotA.

    Q2) Do you think Port will ever allow solo online players to have companions from the offline mode in solo online mode, as this would probably alleviate the filling of being left out of the fun of defeating SotA’s new seasonal mobs / bosses the way I mention in question 1 above.

    Q3) Since bundles are gone for good as of 2018/12/21 will there be anyway in game from crown vendors or as a pledge for episode 2 to get tax free lot deeds, as I don’t play SotA often or grindly enough to afford the tax on anything other then a Row Lot Deed as, even that, costs approximately 180,000 IGG per real time month and that’s more then I bought my old real life 3 floor town house for back in 2000.

  6. Rufus D`AsperdiRufus D`Asperdi

    Question 1: Could you add Relative Length by Species in addition to Absolute Lengths to Trophy Fish Stats? I.E. If the average length of a King Salmon is 2, and you catch one that’s 2.5, add 1.25 to the stats for the fish to show that it’s 25 percent larger than the average King Salmon.
    Like: Fish Length 2.5 (1.25), or: Fish Length: 2.5 (125%)

    Question 2: How’s Bob the Builder doing? Did he recover from his fall?

    Question 3: Now that the Decay Penalty for Death is no more, can’t you simplify the Settings in the Skills window by removing Maintaining? I would also suggest changing the – for Not Training to a Yellow Circle.
    (Green Up Arrow for Training, Yellow Circle for Not Training, Red Down Arrow for Unlearning)

  7. PerashimPerashim

    How will the specializations affect summons? Will be different for each tree, or the same?

    Will the summoned daemon be hostile to everything in the future? If so, how will we control it and will it be strong enough for it to be worth training and summoning?

    Could the Focus tree specialization provide a small, but universal buff to summons for those who want the option to be a “generalist” summoner and add further investment for those of us with a favorite summon that we want to max out (in UO if your current mastery was in a magecraft skill, on top of getting a couple new skills your summons also got a universal buff)?

    Will there be more summons added to each tree in Ep. 2?

    1. BarugonBarugon

      Can you please make the experience pools (adventurer and producer) shared between avatars on the same account like virtues and the bank are?

  8. Vladamir BegemotVladamir Begemot

    1) Items listed on vendors are permanent now (yes this is bugged but not accepted) unless the listee removes them. This means if I sell you a vendor loaded with my stuff, you’re stuck with my inventory! Please put back in a way to dump inventory ASAP!

    2) Nickel and Tungsten, gems, cotton and animal hides NPC buy prices are all artificially inflating the value of those goods.
