Paradox Tower Teasing

As i searched through my screenshots i found this evil screenshot:

Knightmare teasing me with the knowledge that the question was solveable.

As you perhaps know. The Question about Hugo was long time not known. For many months people tried to solve it. As i was once again there to check it out, Knightmare teleported to me and whispered the right answer to the riddler.
That was very evil back then. He didn’t tell me any hint. he just showed me that it was solveable.
It took me some more weeks to get the right answer but only to then being stuck at the last question again for months ;)

But more on this topic on another post.

Giant Spider Rodeo

Back in the old times some monsters reacted different on the sources of damage. Giant Spiders for example weren’t immune to fire and therefore blockable by firebombs.

Trapping them was still very difficult because you couldn’t target them in the attack list. You had to run away, click on the rune, calculate the moving speed of the GS and then click somewhere on the screen trusting that the serverlag would not kill you meanwhile.

Some people could do this perfectly and even managed to trap many GS on the same screen. That’s where this picture was taken.

Let it snow Let it snow Let it snow

The summer is coming and it’s time to cool you all up a bit. So i digged up this screenshot from old times.

As the ice islands were introduced, CIP aded a nice feature to the world: snowballs

You could see many people farming the snowpiles to get 1000ds of snowballs.

While the majority of Tibians abused the snowballs for training purposes (Snowballs did no damage but counted on the distance skill) Tekvorian, Dagor Dragontooth and me build the biggest snowman in Tibian history.

New record

Today in Tibia at the busy hours there are more than 50.000 people logged in at once. 70 servers guarantee that so many people can play. In the past there was only one Tibia, one Server and very few people.

From this time is that screenshot. Note the text in the statusbar at the bottom.

Past vs Present: The Energy Bomb (updated)

Today we introduce a new category at TibiaHistory: Past vs Present.

We will collect screenshots from the past and show the same situations in the new client today.

We will start with the Energy bomb. Some years ago, the energy bomb was a very rare item. Only one Sorcerer in whole Tibia could cast it. He got the ability to do so from a spell scroll he got from the gods.

This sorcerer was Spiritguide, a second char of the well known Arieswar.

Why he got the spell scroll even he can’t remember anymore. The energy-bomb was quite differentin comparison with today. The spell did only cost 270 Mana to cast and created an energy bomb rune with 15 shots. “15 shots?” you will say, “we only have 2 today”. Yes that’s right but that was not the only difference.
