In August, Tibia developers had asked for community opinion on restricting the use of exiva on Optional PvP game worlds in a Dev Note.
As the community feedback was mostly positive, so they have now implemented such a feature, and plan to release it on November 21!
Check out how it will work:
After the release, players can open this new dialog via a new icon above the chat console on all Optional PvP game worlds to specify who can use exiva on their own character.
At pre-defined groups players can choose from are: guild members, party members, and all characters from their own VIP list.
Instead of single groups, players can select: "Everybody is allowed to use exiva." And they also can even define a hotkey to toggle between your previous settings and this entry.
In addition to this, there are two whitelists: One for guild names, and another one, to which you can add single character names. For convenience, players can also add names to this list via the context menu directly on their own VIP list. Whitelist entries dominate over other settings.
Please note, if the player guild participates in a guild war, all members of player guild, as well as the members of enemy guild will be able to use exiva on your character, regardless of your settings.
If you try to find a character, but do not have the exiva right, you will receive this message:
For further questions, the Community Managers have prepared a FAQ on official board.
We are excited about this change and what do you think?
