This update made it possible to buy modification kits for green, red, yellow or the common blue beds. These modification kits work only for beds, so they will be of no use if your house or apartment is furnished with cots, straw mats or hammocks. The new furniture item Trophy Stand was also added with this update.
Three new elements were implemented; Ice, Holy, and Death, as well as new spells for every element (see below).
This update introduced the ability to share experience in a party. The leader of the party now has the option to turn this feature on and off and all party members who contribute to the killing of a monster or healing of party members will get equal experience. Shared experience can only be activated in a party and only by the leader.
There are certain conditions that need to be fulfilled for shared experience to work.
level of the lowest character in the party must be at least 2/3 the level of the highest character in the party (that means for example, level 40 and level 60 can still share, level 200 and 300 can also share)
the distance of all party members to the leader must be smaller or equal to 30 fields (yelling distance), also works one floor up and one floor down
all party members must have contributed to the party within the last 2 minutes (healing a party member or attacking an aggressive monster)
Shared experience has 3 states:
off: experience is distributed as usual according to damage dealt
on and active: if all conditions are fulfilled, experience will be distributed evenly between all party members (rounded up). If a member does not have enough stamina, his share of the experience will be reduced accordingly, the shares of other party members stay unaffected, Soul Points can only be gained if the individual share of experience gained from one monster is larger than or equal to the level of the character. If a member has summons, those summons will receive their part of the experience before shared experience is calculated.
on but inactive: if one or more conditions are not fulfilled, shared XP will automatically be deactivated until all conditions are fulfilled again. Experience is distributed as usual according to damage dealt.
Every party member can see the state of shared XP on his party icon; it is also displayed who causes shared XP to be inactive.
Shared experience only works for experience gained from monsters; on PvP-enforced worlds, experience that is gained from player killing will be distributed as usual according to damage dealt, no matter whether shared XP is active or not.
Players are now able to jump in the beach waters. The swimable areas are closed for the safety of the tibians so they can have fun by just wading or playing Waterpolo with other tibians.
Druids do not rely so much in energy and fire spells anymore, instead they focus in ice and earth spells (the poison element will be replaced with the earth element). Some old spells received new names. Also Druids are now better healers than Sorcerers, although their offensive spells cost more mana.
Knights are from now on able to manipulate the elements as well, for a limited time span, with the aid of the Tibian magicians. Mages can enchant their weapons with magical gems, that can be refilled with magic at secret holy shrines that are only accessible to players with a premium account. Depending on the magical gem that is used, a certain elemental strength will bestowed upon the chosen weapon. This will convert a normal weapon into an elemental weapon.
Paladins can learn to master one of the latest elements, the holy element. Paladins received an entire new arsenal to fight off undead beasts. Furthermore, they can have their arrows and bolts enchanted with certain elements to inflict devastating damage upon the creatures.
Sorcerers are now the main users of fire and energy. They are also decent healers because of their high magic level, but not as good as Druids.
