  • New job the pictomancer: this wielder of pictorial magic brings his ideas to life with the tip of his brush. His imagination can bring anything to life: weapons, creatures and even landscapes. Such invocations require a certain amount of preparation time, so the pictomancer keeps instant spells and abilities at hand.
  • New playable race Hrothgar women: Hrothgars are normally native to Ilsabard. However, fierce hunters from Yak T’el in the Tural, the Xbr’aal, share a common ancestor with the island population. Women are few and far between in this tribe, but are recognizable by their athletic bearing. They are also born leaders.
  • New City Solution Neuf: a mysterious civilization, alien to Tuliyollal, is at the origin of this futuristic urban jungle. For a guided tour, visit
