About the Game
Developed by Virtrium, the MMORPG Istaria: Chronicles of the Gifted immerses players in an online fantasy world of magic and mystery. Istaria is a land populated by monsters, magic, heroes, and player-built communities. Istaria is the only fantasy MMORPG to offer gamers the opportunity to play as a dragon, earning skills and abilities as they grow from a hatchling to adult.

Key Features
  • 11 playable fantasy races: Dragons, Dryads, Dwarves, Elves, Fiends, Gnomes, Half-Giants, Humans, Saris, Satyrs and Sslik populate the world and offer players distinct physical, mental and magical abilities
  • An open character class system: Learn skills from 50 schools while not being limited to one ‘class’. Players can change their character’s ‘class’ as often as they like with no penalty.
  • A real-time persistent world: Build and maintain structures, from simple houses to entire towns. Create businesses, process resources and develop economies within the game world by buying, selling and trading with other players.
  • Friendly gameplay: With a focus on cooperative, PvP-free gameplay, Istaria offers families a perfect place to enjoy a fantastical adventure. A friendly online community of players is always available to help new and seasoned travelers as they explore Istaria.
  • Virtually unlimited exploration potential: Soar through the skies as a dragon, or dig deep into the earth when building your lair. Istaria is a land without “zones” or predetermined player movement boundaries, thus allowing adventurers to explore the entire game world without limits.

Istaria offers Free to Play with a level cap. Any biped race can play up to level 10 per school (this is per school, not a total maximum of levels gained) and dragons are limited to level 15 per school.

Paid access provides
  • Extra character slots
  • Unlimited levels
  • Biped plot construction
  • Dragon lair crafting
  • Extra consignment slots

We never force automatic billing. All paid access provides options for recurring or non-recurring payments. Istaria has Fire Breathing Dragons - not Ninja Billing.

It's a shame you can't buy game cards for Istaria like you can for WoW otherwise I would just buy that instead of paying with my bank card.

I loved this game for so many years, i was never able to buy membership as im not allowed, and i made so many free accounts to play as dragon and im going to be so upset if you still have to pay, yes ik you need money to keep this game running but i just think for some people its not very fair.

The game is going pretty good! Developers are getting more and more active since there came some new in. Events are running on some servers and Epic boss raids. Also mob spawning just for fun or messing with game models when they are around. Halloween event was cool tho :)
