At the moment, the consumer advice centre is warning of an increased volume of phishing e-mails.

Unfortunately, we have recently received more and more information that there are also e-mails in circulation that advertise an Aeria competition.

Such a competition does not exist. This is an unauthorized promotion.

In the email you will be asked to follow a link and on a deceptively real copy of our website you will be asked to enter your account information.

If you have received such a message, please delete it immediately. Please do not click on the link and never enter your account information on other websites.

If you have already followed a link from such a message, immediately change your password using the "Forgot your password?“ function on the website of your game.

Before you enter your account name and password, you should always check the URL of the website you are currently on.

    Brodi


    Brody (spelled with an I)

    Pronounciation as a boys' name is pronounced BROH-dee. It is of Irish and Gaelic origin, and the meaning of Brody is "ditch". Place name. Also possibly related to "brathair" meaning "brother" in Irish.


    The reason behind Brodi is this is the long awaited brother to our beloved raptor.


    Or Rhaegal - self explanatory

    Producer Letter - October 2018

    prodletter_oct18_assetEN.png


    Dear Shaiyans,


    Two things in Shaiya are new:

    1: The long-awaited Mother of Raptor patch is finally online. I hope that you all enjoy the new quest line (and it’s rewards, of course!).

    2: Me, your new Product Manager. I started to work on Shaiya last week, so obviously I was not involved in creating the new patch itself, so all credit goes to the team and the old PM.

    The patch is however an important milestone for Shaiya. As part of the handover between me and the old PM I made myself familiar with what has happened before. It is an important reminder to ourselves that Aeriagames has been purely a publisher in the past and we recently started to develop the games on our own.

    And setting up your own in-house development is always harder than you initially might think. It was a quite a bumpy road to set the correct IT infrastructure up, to get all the correct equipment, tools and licenses in place and then figure the best processes and procedures out. I understand that you, our players, were frustrated, because you did not get a lot of new content during that time, but believe me: You will profit from the technical foundations and groundwork that have been laid in the past months.

    The good news is that this now all in place as evidenced by the Mother of Raptor-Patch. Right now we are optimizing our QA processes to further reduce the time between the patches. Our goal: To have a new content for you every four to six weeks. Is this a promise for a new patch before Helloween? No. Our next patch will include a change of our login system that requires extensive testing, so our current plan will not work if we encounter more issues than we are expecting right now.

    What I can promise you, is that we will get better with every new patch and that we will get closer and closer to that 4-6 weeks cycle as we learn and adapt. We do have a long-term plan: Shaiya is now over 11 years old and we plan to add many more years by keeping the improvement process.


    For all of you who did not fall asleep during all this technical babbling: I am sorry that I did not write a more entertaining Producer Letter, but I think you deserve some information about our issues behind the scenes.

    The next letters will contain more gameplay related information. I fact, now is the best time for you to give us your feedback! As I explained, we will be able to pump out more patches in the future. We can also consider more wishes and suggestions from your side. So let us know what you think!


    In addition to the gameplay developments, we also constantly work on improving all other aspects of the MMO experience. We started a new process by deeply involving the Game Sages in order to provide more events and free up resources for better support and community management. To reflect this process we will change the nametags from Game Sage to Game Master, just like we changed our tags to Community Manager.


    I look forward to working with you all!


    Cheers,

    PM Mountain King

    All Hallow's Eve


    On All Hallow's Eve…




    Halloween may seem like it's all about costumes and candy, but the holiday — which is relatively new to America, having only become popular in the early 1900s it's roots began in pagan beliefs. Dating back about 2,000 years, Halloween marked the Celtic New Year and was originally called Samhain, which translates to "summer's end" in Gaelic.

    Some Halloween traditions, such as carving Jack-o'-lanterns, are based on Irish folklore and have been carried on throughout the centuries, while others are more relatively new.

    Black Cats

    Often used as symbols of bad luck, black cats grace many Halloween decorations. The black cat's bad reputation dates back to the Dark Ages, when witch hunts were commonplace. Elderly, solitary women were often accused of witchcraft, and their pet cats were said to be their "familiars," or demonic animals that had been given to them by the devil. The myth follows that Satan turned himself into a cat when socializing with witches.

    Jack-O'-Lanterns


    A fun fall activity, carving Jack-o'-lanterns actually has its roots in a sinister, tragic fable. Celtic folklore tells the tale of a drunken farmer named Jack who tricked the devil, but his trickery resulted in him being turned away from both the gates of heaven and hell after he died. Having no choice but to wander around the darkness of purgatory, Jack made a lantern from a turnip and a burning lump of coal that the devil had tossed him from hell.

    Bats


    Medieval folklore also described bats as witches' familiars, and seeing a bat on Halloween was considered to be quite an ominous sign. One myth was that if a bat was spotted flying around one's house three times, it meant that someone in that house would soon die.

    Ok official rulings....Melon Ice Cream will be allowed to compensate for the max flash. Also HP pots will be allowed fighter/war battles.

    Since no one wants to seem to make a poll on this... Last LGND we allowed hp pots for wars and fighters, I have heard some asking for it...I will do a poll here.

    Y'all ready for this? Its that time of year again....

    Here it is your chance for the Legend Tags...


    What it is a 1v1 competition versus your class to see who is the best...the winners will then battle their alternative on the opposite faction...

    Everything will be recorded, so yep you guessed it no rune cuts, damage hacks etc..

    HP pots will be allowed during the fighter/war battles only, this is not limited to Cheese or the pumpkins from old quests that were used recently.

    This ruling was changed due to the poll below.

    Also Melon Ice Cream will be allowed to compensate for max flash.

    Debuffs pots are of course usable as will Trans and UT.

    Dear Shaiyans,

    As you already noticed there were changes in our Game Sage Team. These changes were caused by the necessity to make our Game Sage System compliant with The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It is now mandatory for all our Game Sages to sign a non-disclosure agreement in the sense of this new European data protection law. This is essential in order to protect our Game Sages, but also our players in the best way possible. Our Game Sages will still be there for you to help you solving eventual issues.

    In case of any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us via ticket.

    Your Team Shaiya

    This was Karmics last contest with us as a team... he will be missed around here. Top three winners will win a prize I think we will do 30d costume or mount of choice.

    I can only tell you what I know, I did ask for this information for a couple days. Will try to get a clearer scheledule for you guys for August.

    Guys I know, and we have told them the same as you. The players here don't want new costumes. We crave balance and fixes. I promise you this I have personally spoken to the devs on this myself. I have also been told there are several things in the works, I cant speak on them however. I also know all the promises we were given as player since this epi started and have brought this up.


    Hopefully soon you will see good things coming our way. Is the best I can do guys I assure you we are trying.
