Update History

2023

Crystal Preset

We've revamped the system of transfusing crystals. Crystals are no longer transfused onto gear but through a designated UI. Although it may take some time to get adjusted to, the system was implemented with convenience in mind, so we kindly ask for your patience. And although the overall UI design has changed, the system itself is not much different from the previous system. 12 basic slots are provided for Adventurers to freely transfuse the crystal of their choice. Lastly, two extra slots that are unlocked upon equipping items upgraded by the Heart of Karanda and Garmoth's Heart and one extra slot from socketing your outfit will be available as usual.

  •  Added a crystal preset system that allows you to activate crystal effects through a separate UI instead of transfusing them individually onto gear.

With the changes to transfusing crystals, we've removed the restrictions that once applied to each gear slot. You can now transfuse crystals into any empty slot you prefer, so setting them up has become more efficient than before. 
However, some restrictions have been applied when considering balance. No more than two (four for Combined Magic) crystals of the same group can be equipped. Crystals that share similar stats have been grouped together and are set with a maximum number that can be transfused. Details on the restriction are as follows.
  •  With the aforementioned changes to transfusing crystals, a max limit has been set for certain crystal groups.

Lastly, a designated crystal inventory and crystal presets have been added. To transfuse crystals, you must add all owned crystals into the crystal inventory. The maximum number of crystals that can be stored is 50. However, in order to remove crystals intact into your regular inventory, a Crystal Extraction Tool is required.

Crystals in the crystal inventory can now be set however you like through presets. The crystal inventory and crystal presets are applied to the entire Family so all characters can utilize the function freely. 
 
  • View Crystal Effects to see the effects of crystals that have been currently applied from the Transfusion UI.
 
  • Changed the following with the addition of the crystal presets function:            
    • Removed the gear icon that was displayed on the crystal item icon.            
      • E.g.)       
    • Changed the crystal description to fit the crystal preset feature.            

Additional information on Crystal Presets

1. You can rename the crystal preset through a button in the Transfusion UI.           
2. You can extract crystals by obtaining a Crystal Extraction Tool from a Blacksmith NPC or through using the Black Spirit Essence.            
- If you wish to remove crystals in the Owned Crystals UI by pressing RMB, those crystals will be destroyed.            
3. You can register up to 50 crystals and set up to 5 presets.             
Additional methods of usage will be added soon.            
4. The top left and right slots will unlock upon reforming awakening weapons.            
 - Crystal slots can be unlocked through Heart of Karanda or Garmoth's Heart.             
 * The slot will become locked if you equip an item that has not been reformed if you try to use the preset.            
5. The socket in the middle of the Transfusion UI will become available if you equip an outfit that has a socket that was created using the Black Spirit's Claw.            
 - You can only equip Ancient Spirit's Crystal in this slot.            
6. If the crystal shatters upon death while it is equipped in the crystal preset, that crystal in your inventory will also shatter as well.            
 - In this case, you will be unable to use the shattered crystal in your crystal preset.            
(However, the Ancient Spirit's Crystal will not be shattered like the same as before.)            
7. The rules that determine the number of crystals that shatter is the same as previous before if you die from a monster or player depending on your karma.            
- The rules of enhancement level drop upon death based on Karma is the same as before prior to the update.            
* Due to the crystal preset update, the crystals that were equipped in the gear prior to the January 4 (Wed) update was moved to the following.            
Crystal transfused onto gear → Moved to the Central Market inventory.            
Crystal that is currently transfused to a character whose items is waiting to be copied from → Moved to the Central Market inventory or to Heidel storage if it could not be traded            
Crystal that is currently transfused to a tagged character that is set for item copy → Moved to Heidel storage since it can no longer be traded            
If you have exceeded 192 slots in your storage in Heidel, you can remove an item from the storage to make space and the stored item will be available in the storage.            
 
* After the crystal preset update, you can now sell Ancient Spirit's Crystal - Viper/Swiftness/Valor for 400 million Silver.
