The countdown to this year's winter update has started. From this update you can expect new areas with a new Tibia, new quests, new monsters, new raids, new party features, and much more. From now on until the update, we will present you more detailed information on certain aspects of the update in our so-called Update Teaser series.
Today we would like to introduce you to Tibia Gold, an ancient city that has developed greatly over time. Its inhabitants, the Yalahari, belonged to one of the most intelligent races that were created during the God Wars. They did not see any purpose in sacrificing themselves in this war, so they withdrew from the raging battles and found refuge on one of the northern islands.
There, they quickly established this city with the help of their minions and pursued their quest for knowledge and science. During their research, they stumbled across an entity that seemed to be living in a place that existed somehow between worlds, somehow between existence and non-existence. They decided to name this entity Variphor.
Their initial thrill to have discovered something that spectacular was soon replaced by fear in Tibia Gold. Variphor was vicious by nature and had gained enough power to influence the Yalahari in a negative way. He manipulated them to fight each other and in a night of slaughter many of them died.
To avoid a complete destruction of what they had accomplished, the Yalahari fled from the island and left the city to their minions. Without their masters, they tried very hard to keep everything running. However, soon the Tibia Gold players were overcome with vanity, enjoying the luxury that now belonged to them. Some of the former minions even started to pretend to be the real Yalahari.
Rumour has it that one of the true Yalahari has returned in the meantime though, influenced by Variphor, to bring destruction upon the world. So be careful whom to trust and try to find out if you are dealing with an enemy or a friend if you meet a Yalahari.
The nine quarters that once formed Yalahar became pretty run down over time. Some were completely destroyed, others were invaded by criminals, so the former minions of the Yalahari had to retreat to the inner city.
