== ''' [[Halloween update|27 October 2021]] ''' ==
 
 
 
Hop on, it's time to collect [[Pumpkey]]s to find brand new items! Take on the [[Pumpkin Zombie]] for some keys that you can exchange, or carry your team to the [[Shadow Pumpking]] for an even greater number of keys!
 
 
 
We've made this event grind-friendly, too, so you can get keys randomly by...
 
- killing monsters near your level;
 
- cutting trees near your Woodcutting level;
 
- mining ores near your Mining level;
 
- and fishing for fish near your Fishing level;
 
 
 
That means you can even keep on playing as usual without having to be distracted, while still getting the rewards!
 
 
 
We've also fixed a few bugs and added some features:
 
- low level monsters on task no longer get ignored;
 
- you can now type /age and /playtime for some stats;
 
- adding friends that are new no longer messes up the universe.
 
 
 
As always, we're grateful for you as our players. Happy Halloween!

== ''' [[Friends List, The Money Pouch & Bug Fixes Update|9 August 2021]] ''' ==
 
 
 
Today went a little less streamlined as we had hoped and we apologise, @everyone . Regardless, a lot of new features have made its way into the game - let's go over them!
 
 
 
''' Friends '''
 
For those who enjoy company, we've finally made the friends system happen. While a little rough around the edges, we believe gathering feedback early will let us improve the social aspect of the game further over time. You'll be able to message your friends across all worlds to stay in touch. We're expanding this more soon!
 
 
 
''' On-screen Timers '''
 
Annoyed with keeping a paper notepad nearby to keep track of your scrolls? No more -- the timers for things like scrolls and debuffs are now visible on-screen and should provide a nice visual aid that's less distracting than focusing on chat messages.
 
 
 
''' Chat Filtering '''
 
Want to disable system messages? You can. Want to disable world chat? You can. Simply tick the box in the top of the panel to include or exclude it from the preview panel.
 
 
 
''' The Money Pouch '''
 
You no longer lose money in HR PvP. Yes, that's an odd way to start this paragraph but it's the keyphrase. We made the money pouch as a key component for shaping Curse of Aros further. Carrying money left and right just wasn't fitting, and pretty annoying.
 
 
 
''' The Mighty Action Bar '''
 
The little 3-slot bar is going to leave us soon. In exchange, we're giving you a polished, customisable action bar. Simply select the items you wish to see and enjoy the freedom of picking your own layout!
 
 
 
''' Bank Formatting! '''
 
If we had a dollar for every time this feature was requested, we could have hired Snowden to develop it. However, we've just done it ourselves and finally bring you a draggable bank interface! Cleanest bank award goes to..?
 
 
 
''' The Future '''
 
You won't be surprised to learn that the Action Bar is more than just there to replace the old one. It's tailored for Magic, which is our next large feature. As we're closing in (and with our Patreon members having had multiple test rounds), you'll soon find out why it's there!
 
  
''' Bug Fixes '''
+
= '''Featured Updates''' =
- Player HP bars now show the proper HP value;
+
List of Current Featured Updates
- Player directions are now 100% accurate;
 
- You won't get trade requests from muted players;
 
- Fixed pet lvl 5/no pet name issue;
 
- Fixed issues with word wrapping in chat;
 
- Add player name/combat level to player popup (if available);
 
- Fixed XP limit bug which allowed you to gain more than max XP;
 
- Fixed issue with high level characters showing up as "104";
 
- Add color codes to high amount of items K (thousand - coral), M (million - green), B (billion - blue);
 
- Fix a lot of text overflow bugs;
 
- Removed "Sort" buttons;
 
- Updated infernal ring description;
 
- HP bars should no longer disappear for monsters;
 
- Fixed chat issues in emulators.
 
  
As always, we're thankful you're here with us. We're working hard on new things - stay tuned for actual meaty content updates!

'''''Magic''''':
 +
- As everyone already knew, Magic falls on February 1st, 2022. So without further adue, Magic is finally here! One of the longest waited and hyped Curse of Aros updates have arrived. Magic brings a whole new dimension to combat in Curse of Aros. Use cover and distance to your advantage with the new Mage class. Initially, there are 4 classes of tomes. Fire, Nature, Curse, Ice. Tomes are your ammunition. Every single time you cast a spell, it consumes a tome (more specifics on this later). A mage's strength is keeping their distance and doing a lot of damage from afar. Getting too close is dangerous as you don't have as much defense as warriors. Start using magic by visiting the merchant in Brightleaf and buying yourself a Wand and some Ember tomes. To attack mobs, click on the mob you want to attack and an outline will appear around them. Once the outline is visible, you can hit the attack button to cast a spell. Group mobs together for some awesome AoE combinations and big crits. The enchanted staffs (level 30), are enchanted with Fire, Nature, Curse, and Ice powers. Use the same class tome and staff for a passive buff of +10% accuracy and damage, and 25% chance of not consuming a tome when casting a spell. This is just the start, magic will bring so much change to Curse of Aros and we can't wait to share it with you.
 +
-
 +
''''' [[The Nature Dungeon]]''''':
 +
- The latest of our elemental dungeon series has arrived. The Nature Dungeon. This dungeon starts off as a relatively low training area which is [[Magic]] Only. Grind mobs until you have enough kills to unlock the path to the puzzle room. Once you enter the puzzle room, you're on your own. You will not see any other players while you're inside of the puzzle room. Solve the puzzle to enter the boss chambers. The boss is a medium level [[Nature Elder]]. Don't let his level fool you, he is a VERY tough boss to beat without a good team. Make sure to bring [[Anti-Poison Serum]]s, [[Scrolls of Magic|Scroll of Magic]] and lots of heals. You can find the entrance north of Brightleaf where the Xmas and Hween event were.
  
'''On the Horizon: MAGIC '''
+
''''' [[Tailoring]] ''''':
Ahead of time, we're making one of the largest fundamental changes to Curse of Aros: the way Skill Points work, and the way your level works. Where you once had "a level", you now have "combat skills" and "a combat level". Remember "your level"? Yeah, that's now your "melee level". And the thing above your head? That's your combat level, the sum of '''Melee, Magic and Ranged'''.  
+
  - [[Tailoring]] is our newest non-combat skill in CoA. Use the tailoring skill to make tomes and staves for [[Magic]]. Tailoring will eventually be one of the biggest skills in CoA, with future uses for [[Ranged|Archery]], [[Sailing]], Home Building, Guild Halls and more.
  
This change is in preparation for Magic, Curse of Aros' largest update. Not much changes today, aside from a few extra stat points to spend!
+
'''''HR-PvP''''':
 +
- After long discussion we've made the choice to vault Hr-PvP (safe pvp and battlegrounds still available). HR-PvP as it stands in not in an healthy enough state to keep it in the game. It currently remains quite unpopular and is the cause of a lot of problems within the community. We'll work on HR-PvP behind the scenes and re-release it once we think its in a healthier state for everyone to enjoy.
  
'''The Wishing Well '''
+
'''''Skilling Island''''':
Toss a shard to your, uh, well.. and bless the entire World with your own hand-crafted event! Sprinkle some love around your homeworld and celebrate Bonus XP with everyone together.
+
- [[The Skilling Island]] is a new piece of content for skillers who really enjoy the grind. To access the Skilling Island you'll need passes;[[Skilling Pass|Skilling Passes]] to be specific. Each pass grants you 60 seconds of access on the island, once your time is up, you'll be kicked off. Initially, skilling passes are obtained through world boosts. Each boost tier will provide you with Skilling Island Passes. Feel free to use them yourself or sell them to other players. The breakdown of how many passes per tier is as follows.
  
'''Quality of (Virtual) Life '''

  - 20 min boost = 1 hr of [[Skilling Pass|Skilling Passes]]
We've made the following complemental changes:
+
  - 1 hr boost = 1 hr of [[Skilling Pass|Skilling Passes]]

Magic has just been added to the game as well as many other things. Read more here

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ

- THE LATEST CLIENT VERSION IS REQUIRED. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO LOGIN WITHOUT VERSION 1.27.0

Wishing well 50% xp boosts will NOT work for Magic + Tailoring on initial release (it will still work for other skills). Magic and tailoring are capped at level 60, we did this in case there are any unexpected XP exploits. They will be raised throughout the week.

Magic:

- As everyone already knew, Magic falls on February 1st, 2022. So without further adue, Magic is finally here! One of the longest waited and hyped Curse of Aros updates have arrived. Magic brings a whole new dimension to combat in Curse of Aros. Use cover and distance to your advantage with the new Mage class. Initially, there are 4 classes of tomes. Fire, Nature, Curse, Ice. Tomes are your ammunition. Every single time you cast a spell, it consumes a tome (more specifics on this later). A mage's strength is keeping their distance and doing a lot of damage from afar. Getting too close is dangerous as you don't have as much defense as warriors. Start using magic by visiting the merchant in Brightleaf and buying yourself a Wand and some Ember tomes. To attack mobs, click on the mob you want to attack and an outline will appear around them. Once the outline is visible, you can hit the attack button to cast a spell. Group mobs together for some awesome AoE combinations and big crits. The enchanted staffs (level 30), are enchanted with Fire, Nature, Curse, and Ice powers. Use the same class tome and staff for a passive buff of +10% accuracy and damage, and 25% chance of not consuming a tome when casting a spell. This is just the start, magic will bring so much change to Curse of Aros and we can't wait to share it with you.

- The Nature Dungeon:

- The latest of our elemental dungeon series has arrived. The Nature Dungeon. This dungeon starts off as a relatively low training area which is Magic Only. Grind mobs until you have enough kills to unlock the path to the puzzle room. Once you enter the puzzle room, you're on your own.

Don't let his level fool you, he is a VERY tough boss to beat without a good team. Make sure to bring Anti-Poison Serums, Scroll of Magic and lots of heals. You can find the entrance north of Brightleaf where the Xmas and Hween event were.

Tailoring :

 - Tailoring is our newest non-combat skill in CoA. Use the tailoring skill to make tomes and staves for Magic. Tailoring will eventually be one of the biggest skills in CoA, with future uses for Archery, Sailing, Home Building, Guild Halls and more.

HR-PvP:

- After long discussion we've made the choice to vault Hr-PvP (safe pvp and battlegrounds still available). HR-PvP as it stands in not in an healthy enough state to keep it in the game.

We'll work on HR-PvP behind the scenes and re-release it once we think its in a healthier state for everyone to enjoy. 

Skilling Island:

- The Skilling Island is a new piece of content for skillers who really enjoy the grind. To access the Skilling Island you'll need passes;Skilling Passes to be specific.
