Istaria is likely most famous for the fact that it allows PC playable dragons. Its next most popular aspect is its crafting system.
Players with a paid subscription can purchase land or a lair and build persistent structures. Player built structures are not instanced and exist in the game world for all players to see and interact with. These structures may be used for item storage, machines for crafting providing a skill bonus depending on the tier of the structure or some other functionality such as a vault, pawn broker, consigner, or a shrine to bind to. The plot owner has the ability to control who can use each of the structures on the plot with various permissions allowing it to be locked solely to the owner, the owner’s guild, open access, or to a select group of players by name.
Aurora Alliance guild members have a number of plots throughout the world of Istaria. Some are guild communities with lower prices for land with close access to other guild resources. Other plots have been selected to best help the whole of the Order community and providing key machines, vaults or shrines in close proximity to portal hubs
