Dear Tibians,

we are excited to present you a sneak peek at the Tibia Observer, a notification app that will support you in your Tibia activities without requiring you to log into the game or website.

Stay informed

The Tibia Observer provides you with notifications about various aspects of Tibia to keep you informed about things which matter to you. You can define which information you would like to receive to get tailor-made in-app and push notifications which cover the following topics:

  • Raids: Raid announcements from the Cyclopedia map can be shown through the app if you have unlocked the respective area. You can define specifically which areas you would like to be notified about.
  • Events: The app can remind you about the next double XP/skill, rapid respawn and double loot event, as well as world events. It can also tell you when a world event has been successfully completed on a game world.
  • News: Get notifications about the latest news and entries in the news ticker or the CM tracker.
  • Char Bazaar

    : If you have certain attributes in mind which your desired character needs to have, simply create a search and be informed once a fitting auction is created. You can select filters for game world and type, level, vocation and skill. Once you have found an interesting offer, the app will take you to the Tibia website where you can proceed to bid.
  • Mini World Changes: Do not miss out on mini world changes by defining which of them interest you and receiving a notification on server save about them.
  • Houses: Are you looking to buy a new home or simply want to stay informed about the world of real estate? Simply tell the Tibia Observer when your dream house is up for auction to not miss your chance to put in a bid.
  • Offline training: Optimise your offline training by staying notified about how long your characters have been training and how long they can still keep going.
  • Forum: Receive notifications immediately when somebody has responded in one of your threads to be able to reply in a timely manner. You can decide from which forum sections you would like to get messages.
Security is paramount

Being
notificationscharbazaar_blank_small.jpg
safe while using the app was a crucial design aspect in the development of the Tibia Observer. No password or other sensitive data is needed and stored on your smartphone. Instead, the app is linked to your account via a token which is generated in the account management on the Tibia website. That is all which is needed to begin using the app. This link can also be revoked again at once through the account management.
Your account can only be connected to one installation of the Tibia Observer at a time. You can link up to three accounts to one such installation.

Also, we want to emphasise that Tibia Observer's purpose is to inform players about certain activities or events in Tibia through notifications on their mobile devices. It is explicitly not designed to allow the performing of ingame or website actions such as buying and selling items or bidding on auctions, for example.

Closed and Open Beta

We have selected a handful of players to help us during a closed beta test which will last the coming weeks. After its conclusion, we expect to have an open beta test during which all players can try the app and give their feedback. During the closed and open beta, the app is only available for Android systems.

Get ready for the Tibia Observer,

Dear Tibians,

we want to give you an update on the Tibia Observer, a notification app that will support you in your Tibia activities. As we mentioned in our back in September, we conducted a closed beta with a handful of selected players who diligently tested the app and provided us with bug reports, valuable feedback and suggestions. In the Auditorium, we also received useful comments from other players which we read with great interest. A big shout out to our industrious closed beta testers and all players who dedicated time to help us with constructive feedback!

We used this helpful feedback to spice up some aspects of the Tibia Observer. We focused on feasible optimisations and improvements which we could develop and implement without delaying the open beta too much. The most noticeable change is the revamped dashboard which now provides useful and interesting info about your favourite chars which you can select via the app.

  • It shows whether those characters are currently online, and also whether they are online training at an exercise dummy.
  • It shows whether you already collected a character's daily reward, similar to the character selection upon login.
  • It shows when the stamina of a character is completely full.
  • You can also see the boosted creature there, and iconic buttons work as short cuts to the different sections of the app.
We also enriched in-app and push notifications when a raid starts by adding more info, e.g. the actual raid message that is sent in the game. In regards to the Char Bazaar, minimum bid and end date of an auction have been added to in-app and push notifications.

The options to set up notifications for the status of a character's offline training pool have been revised so you can better tailor them to your needs. You can choose between four time thresholds for when your training time pool increases or decreases. Moreover, when setting up notifications for offline training, mini world changes, and houses, auto-naming suggestions will help to make this process faster.

Of course, bugfixes and quite a few smaller changes were implemented as well to improve the overall usability and convenience. If you would like to try out the Tibia Observer yourself, you can look forward to the open beta: We aim to launch it in the course of spring 2022. As soon as we have more reliable info, we will let you know.

Last but not least, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the incredible loyalty and extraordinary dedication, the inspiring passion and generous support you have shown to us and to Tibia, not only this year but for the last 25 years. This unique and special game is dear to all of us and connects us across the world in good times and in challenging times. We are super excited to celebrate Tibia's 25th anniversary with you in January and we hope to see you all there. The anniversary countdown on the Tibia website will show you how many days are left before we get this party started!

Till then, we wish you a peaceful and joyous holiday season! Stay safe, Tibians, and all the best for 2022!

Hail Tibia!
