August 24th, 2019

- Due to an exploit allowing players less than Level 100 to own a house via transfer, you can now use !buyhouse to buy a house from a player under Level 100, even if that player logged in at some point in the last 30 days. For this reason, if you have a house you don't want to lose currently owned by a character not at Level 100, you should transfer that house to a player at least Level 100 immediately.

May 24th, 2019

- Captain Bluebear can now ferry people to Fibula. A return trip to Thais can be purchased from Ferryman Kamil. Both directions cost 500 gold each.

- Fishing no longer requires worms. However, the odds of catching fish are much better with worms than without.

April 30th, 2019

- Added a new custom spellbook, the spellbook of flowing mana and a new custom trinket, the rabbit's foot, to the game.

- Added a new NPC to the game, Bobbert. He has two functions: first, he can instantly take you to Roshamuul's settlement for a fee of 50,000 gold. Secondly, he will help you perform his secret stamina-restoring workout regiment for 100,000 gold. This feature cannot restore your Stamina above 40 hours, however. Look for him after ferrying to the Roshamuul continent.

August 24th, 2018

- Added a new custom trinket, the previously unobtainable roc feather, to the game.

March 22nd, 2018

- Due to low server population, the Children of the Revolution quest was modified so that it could be done by a single person (or a party less than four). The difficulty remains unchanged, but it should allow adventurers not able to put together a party of four to access the northern portions of Zao, at risk of great peril. Please report a bug if anyone is having issues with it, thanks.

December 19th, 2017

- Destruction has stepped down as GM and chosen to become a normal player again, due to personal reasons. We respect his decision and look forward to his community contributions.

December 14th, 2017

- I'm proud to announce that Zeal Online has appointed its first GM, Destruction who I'm sure all players on the server know by now as the first player to reach Level 1000. He will be involved in helping new players, create in-game events, and handle reports. He will report directly to me, and any incidents or concerns should be reported directly to me. Congratulations, Destruction, and we expect great things!

November 22nd, 2017

- As an early Thanksgiving present, all potions have been buffed slightly in their health/mana gains. This change is a test, feedback will be expected following the Double EXP event. A determination of whether to make this change permanent will be made shortly afterwards.

October 17th, 2017

- The spell orami can now be used by Druids. However, orami gran and orami mas sio are still sorcerer exclusives.

August 29th, 2017

- Two rare items have been changed to have new and potentially useful effects. However, a way to combine them has also been discovered by an NPC to create a much more powerful relic...

- A few other tweaks/additions to Zeal Online exclusive & edited items.

- The NPC Yasir has been changed so that he appears more often. His chance to appear is 75%, with a mere 25% chance he is currently at sea.

February 28th, 2017

- The new world boss is here, Xurkimuh, a demon matriarch infuriated at the death of her three children! She will become appearing as a normal raid starting March 1st. The first time she is defeated, there will be guaranteed four new end-game items that drop! Xurkimuh is the only source of these new items until she is defeated for the first time. After that, each of these items will be added as very rare loot to another creature as well, and the chance Xurkimuh will drop them will be reduced (but will still be fairly common!). Good luck to all the brave heroes who will try to slay her...



February 21st, 2017

- A player group has cleared the Triangle of Terror Challenge, defeating each of these demonic beasts in a single night! As such, a new era has began in Zeal Online... for the following week, up until the end of the month, Zeal Online will observe double experience for all players! However, at the end of this week, a new challenger, with new riches, will appear...

- The following items have been made into equipment (some of which equip on the ammo slot) and given effects: terrifying heart, orshabaal's brain, soul stone, Ron the Ripper's Sabre, Deadeye Devious' Eye Patch, Lethal Lissy's Shirt, and Brutus Bloodbeard's Hat.

- The requirements for cave explorer outfit has been changed, due to the increased use of the above boss items. It now requires 25 silver raid tokens, and 10 golden raid tokens.

- The NPC Clavical now has the ability to soulcharge your character. You can trade 1000 gold for 5 soul points from him.

December 25th, 2016

- Santa Claus will now automatically make his appearance in Zeal Online during the entire month of December. Look for him in the major Tibian cities! He hops from city to city each day, when he will visit your city is a mystery! If you encounter him, you may ask him for your present... but don't get greedy! You only get one present every year, and only if you haven't been naughty!

October 17th, 2016

- Made a change to the Recharge (orami) spells, making them require a small amount of soul. This is to avoid their abuse in AFK training. The normal orami spell now costs one soul, and orami gran and orami mas res now cost two.

August 26th, 2016

- To make it easier to start playing Zeal Online for those who are not familiar with other OpenTibia servers, we created a simple custom client that is already set up to point to our server. No other changes to the client was made, and you may still play by using the IP Changer method with the official 10.41 client. You can download the custom client here:

July 30th, 2016

- We finally have the server under a battery backup unit! Hopefully, that will mean that server outages caused by power failure will become a thing of the past. Which also means that rollbacks to characters and houses will also no longer occur.

August 22nd, 2015

- Players must now be Level 100 to purchase a house. This is to prevent one player from buying up the best houses in the game with low-level characters. Several houses of Level 8 characters have therefore been evicted, with the gold refunded to their bank accounts.

July 8th, 2015

- Added some custom weapons and armor to the game: gatekeeper shield, glyph shield, hat of time, arcane pendant, dark lord's brooch, jade amulet, amulet of the sand prince, floral brooch, frozen weight stone, champion's medallion, friendship necklace, spellbook of impending doom, golden spellscroll, save the queen.

- Added a new NPC, Clavical, which can be used by players to see if certain boss monsters spawned while they were offline. Saying the name of a creature to him will let you know if the monster exists on this plane or not. For example, if you wanted to know of Orshabaal spawned today and is still around, simply say "Orshabaal" to him. Clavical can be found on the top of the northwest tower of Edron Ivory Towers (the magic academy).

June 24th, 2015

- Added the gnome outfit, which can be bought via the !addon command. It costs 10 minor crystal tokens, 100 teleport crystals, 100 blank runes, and 50 brown pieces of cloth. Alternately, you can get this outfit for free from Gnomission if you have warzone access.



- Added an alternate method to get the monster (dwarf and elf) outfits. Instead of purchasing them via !addon, you can now receive them as an additional reward for completing the Royal Rescue quest. Simply ask Emperor Rehal for an outfit after you completed the quest.

- Increased the elemental damage of enchanted weapons, in most cases doubling them (with the amount being subtracted by the physical attack). For example, previously an enchanted spike sword had 20 physical attack and 4 elemental attack. Now, it has 16 physical attack and 8 elemental attack. This is an experimental change to make these weapons more useful.

June 17th, 2015

- Brave heroic players have slain Morgaroth and Ghazbaran, but now the third and final member of the Triangle of Terror is looking for revenge! Created the final Triangle of Terror member, Zoralurk, and a corresponding raid that causes him to appear. Good luck to all the brave heroes who try to take down this great demonic master!



- Added raids for several boss monsters that previously did not spawn in Zeal Online. This is the complete list: Warlord Ruzad, Smuggler Baron Silvertoe, Yaga the Crone, Xenia, Zarabustor, Rukor Zad, Munster, Grorlam, Grandfather Tridian, Foreman Kneebiter, Captain Jones, Teleskor, Big Boss Trolliver, Battlemaster Zunzu, Willi Wasp, Bibby Bloodbath, Hairman the Huge, High Templar Cobrass.

June 12th, 2015

- The server will completely reboot now during each server save. This means that the server will reboot clearing the map and raids daily now, rather than weekly. The server save time has also been changed, to midnight EST.

- Increased the rate that raids appear. We can do this thanks to the above change, since raids won't sit there for a long time now (always being cleared at the day's end).

- Increased the odds of skinning a monster with the Obsidian Knife / Blessed Wooden Stake successfully. The chance has been doubled in most cases. This change is being made to bring this in line with the x5 loot rate.

- Ammunition for crossbows and bows now use a break chance, as opposed to being 100% consumed each shot (like spears and other distance weapons). For weaker arrows and bolts, they break around 50% of the time. Stronger ammunition can last longer. In addition, the conjure arrow and bolt spells conjure 50% more ammunition than before. This change also is applied to the ice rapier, which only has a 25% chance of breaking now instead of always breaking on the first hit.

June 2nd, 2015

- Changed how buying houses from inactive players works. Removed the old !evict talkaction, and instead, players may buy the houses of inactive players (defined as not having logged in for a month) using !buyhouse, which will cost the normal price of the house. The money used to buy the house will go to the evicted player's bank balance.

- Greatly reduced the break chance for distance weapons, like spears and throwing stars. In most cases, the chance has been halved (and in some cases more).

May 27th, 2015

- Added a new !report talkaction to standardize bug reporting. From now on, if you encounter a bug, please type "!report [bug description]" in the chat. Please be as detailed as possible with the description, and be standing around where the bug occurred. Thank you!

- Added the ability to start from Level 1 with no vocation on Rookgaard. On the character creation page, simply select no vocation to do this. The starting city can be set to anything... upon logging in, it will change to Rookgaard.

- Added the elementalist outfit for the !addon command.

May 16th, 2015

- Added the blazebringer mount to the !mount command. The cost to own one is a trapped lightning, glass of goo, eye of the storm, sun mirror, and a black skull.

- Although the quest is still not implemented, the Isle of Evil is now accessible, and one can fight the monsters and bosses. Simply talk to the NPC Rapanaio in Kazordoon for passage.

April 27, 2015

- Added a new outfit, the monster outfit, the !addon command. For male characters, this will unlock the dwarf outfit. For female characters, this will unlock the elf outfit. Keep in mind you can change your character's sex using the !changesex command at any time. These outfits have no addons, and the cost is one of each of the dwarven and elven set (elven mail, elven legs, elvish bow, elven amulet, dwarven axe, dwarven shield, dwarven armor, dwarven legs, dwarven helmet, and dwarven ring).

- Added a new NPC, Helga, who will purchase all items normally only sellable to Rashid, the Djinns, Gnomission, or Ezrik without any quest required, but for half the price. This NPC is located in Venore and is designed to help new players be able to sell their loot.

- Added a new command called !evict, which enables players to evict inactive players from their houses. This costs 500,000 gold, and was added so players who have quit Zeal Online don't "hog" popular houses.

- Gnome Warzones can now be accessed without doing daily missions by buying access from the NPC Gnomission for 3 million gold. Players must still have completed the base Bigfoot Burden quest to purchase access to the warzones.
