MAJOR CHANGES

Modified the overall balance of items / characters / options:

  • Downgraded the basic stats of the equipment, and set character’s strength a little higher
  • Adjusted the player’s defense value overall, and accordingly adjusted the monster’s attack power.
  • Lowered the standard gear score to lower the initial difficulty level in the early game.

Modified equipment rewards that can be acquired in the field.

  • In order to alleviate the difficulty in the early part of growth, the importance of reinforcement is reduced and non upgradable equipment is provided as a reward in the field.
  • All equipment acquired in the field will be provided as equipment suitable for the player’s class.
  • Upgradable equipment can be acquired in the same way as before in dungeons.

Modified the types of rewards dropped by field monsters to remove fortification stone drops and add breath drops

  • As the importance of fortification in the field has decreased, fortification material rewards have also been modified.
  • Although fortification stones have been removed, if needed in the field, they can be purchased using soul crystals through the unique token merchant

Equipment is now level restricted based on its grade.

  • Grade – Minimum Level
  • Grade E – Min Lv. 1
  • Grade D – Min Lv. 3
  • Grade C – Min Lv. 10
  • Grade B – Min Lv. 18
  • Grade A – Min Lv. 25
  • Grade S – Min Lv. 35
  • Equipment that is already equipped can still be used, but once it has been unequipped, the character level requirements must be met before it can be equipped again. 

Crafting improvements

  • EXP increased when making soul pyre dishes
  • Reduced potion material consumption
  • Removed low-level equipment crafting
  • Reduced material consumption for crafting low-level equipment
  • Adjustment of the required skill level for making equipment

Added a new content emoticon system. This system is activated by trigger words in the chat window, or by equipping the emoticons to the quick slot or ring menu.

Added a multi-matchmaking system. Previously it was only possible to queue for one dungeon or battlefield content at a time which led users to wait a very long time. In order to resolve this issue, players are now able to register up to 5 dungeons or battlefields to a matchmaking list.

Added exploration elements that allow players to obtain buffs from major structures in big cities.

Added a feature where, when inventory expansion items, equipment, mounts, or reward boxes are acquired, a quick-equip option is available.

  • Equipped Blessing effects can be upgraded to a max of 10 or 20 upgrades, depending.
  • Each Blessing has a designated ‘Breath’, and with those items, you can upgrade the effects of the Blessing skills.

Adjusted the process of acquiring the Blessing ‘The Crescent Moon’

  • Can now be acquired during the Tristezza Main Story Quests
  • Now requires only 4 fragments, from Bashal, the Spider Queen, the Cyclops, and the Tristezza Main Story Quest.

GIFT OF VALOR TRAITS

  • Crusader: After using a Shout-type skill, using the Burning Blade skill right after is very important.

  • Ranger: Through constant combo attacks, Flashing effects are stacked and strengthens the Tempest Shot skill.
  • Priest: After achieving a Trance effect that increases the critical hit probability each time a critical hit has been applied, use the skill Blade of Justice to apply a considerable amount of damage.

  • Berserker: Allows to engage in dynamic combat by eliminating cooldown for the Shoulder Slam skill, and enhance the skill used immediately afterward.

  • Priest: Acquire additional bonus attack damage when the HP is full, and even if the HP is low increases the survivability of the character.
  • Mage: Summon cold air Blizzard by hitting Frost Nova against the enemy. Fighting within Blizzard benefits the use of the Frost-type skills.

LIONHEART TRAITS

  • Crusader: Centered around Shout-type skills, a Shout-type skill will immediately inflict damage to the enemy. And whenever a successful Guard is executed while the Shout-type effect is applied, it is triggered immediately thus maintaining Shout effects are very critical.

When using Slash type combos, the cooldown time for the skill Counterattack is quickly decreased. This blessing is centered around the frequent use of the Counterattack skill.
  • Berserker: Rage: Extinction skill usability has been improved and allows the player to safely overcome the combat situation when the HP is low.
  • Ranger: Use the skills [Lightning Arrow, Triple Shot, and Hammer Shot to acquire the effect Eye of the Storm and use the skill Tempest Volley for an increase in skill damage. More stacks of Eye of the Storm effects lead to higher damage output from the Tempest Volley skill.
  • Priest: Whenever healing someone, receive bonus attack damage in attack skills, and in reverse, receive a bonus in healing-type skills when attacking an enemy. 
  • Mage: Combo or skills of Arcane-type or Flame-type skills to receive enhancement effects and when the effect has been stacked to the max limit, receive additional bonuses and transfer the skills to the opposite-type skills.

  • Quest – Modified Unique Bosses to abyssal quests aimed at defeating Elite Monsters and Unique Bosses.
  • Abyssal Quests – Quests with abyssal icons are quests to defeat very powerful monsters in fields such as the Elite and Unique Bosses. Elite and Unique Bosses are very intimidating, so it is much more effective to attack with other players.
  • The Character Sheet – moved mastery towards crafting category 
  • Dungeon – Escape Dungeon. If escaping the dungeon while in progress, players will not be able to match the dungeon for a certain period of time. If exiting the dungeon without clearing the dungeon and while it is in progress, it is regarded as ‘escaping’ and players will not be able to match the dungeon for a certain period of time. The time for banned matchmaking depends on the number of escapes. The number of escapes is reset every day. If forcibly logged out unexpectedly, players will be able to proceed again without penalty if they log in within 5 minutes.
