Update History


Elvia Realm in Calpheon

Elvia Calpheon invades the live servers today.
There, you will be able to face the even more powerful Saunil, Rhutum, Giants, Hexe Skeletons, and Trolls.
Each of the old and familiar monster zones were given unique and interesting mechanic due to the "Elvia Distortion Phenomenon" and the Rift of Despair at its center.
The mechanics that can increase your efficiency are listed below, so be sure to take note of them.
Elvia Calpheon will drop materials required to obtain the new "Godr-Ayed" weapons and their enhancement materials. It also drops new loot items required to upgrade alchemy stones as well. We hope this will become a new challenge that our Adventurers will eagerly charge in to take on.
● Hadum, the God of Despair, who spread her corruption upon Serendia, has raised the cursed Black Sun bursting with destructive energies over the skies of Calpheon.
- With Calpheon corrupted by the Elvia Realm, its ecology has begun to distort.
- Saunil Camp, Rhutum Outstation, Gehaku Plain, Hexe Sanctuary, and Quint Hill have fallen to the corruption, as Hadum-infested monsters now appear in these zones.
- During combat, the Elvia Distortion Phenomenon can occur in Elvia Calpheon, which will alter the weather and affect which Shadow of Nightmares monster will spawn.
- You can loot materials for exchanging/enhancing the Godr-Ayed weapon and upgrading alchemy stones in Elvia Calpheon.
- You can loot the "Ancient Spirit Light" item from monsters, and upon purifying Rifts of Despair with it will grant you a powerful buff.

The Elvia Distortion Phenomenon

● "Rifts of Despair" have begun to tear open throughout Elvia Calpheon, causing occurrences of the so-called "Elvia Distortion Phenomenon" wherever they appear.
● Defeating monsters near a "Rift of Despair" has a low chance to cause the "Elvia Distortion Phenomenon" to occur.
● The "Elvia Distortion Phenomenon" will spawn a powerful boss monster and change the weather.
- If lightning begins to strike, Gigagord will appear with its minions.
- If icy winds begin to blow, a Cyclops boss monster will appear.
- If a meteor falls from the sky, an Ogre boss monster will appear.

Ancient Spirit Light

● Defeating monsters in Elvia Calpheon has a low chance to drop the "Ancient Spirit Light" item, which can be used to purify Rifts of Despair\.
- Using the Ancient Spirit Light near a Rift of Despair will grant the "Blessing of the Ancient Spirits" buff, which greatly increases your damage for 5 minutes.
* Blessing of the Ancient Spirits: Significantly increases damage dealt to Elvia Calpheon monsters during the buff duration
- The Ancient Spirit Light item will last for 6 hours once looted and will disappear once the duration is over.
