New and Improvements

We originally scheduled this update for September 29, but discovered additional issues during our final review process. Currently we're undergoing measures to identify the exact cause of these issues in order to implement the required fixes, and will keep you updated with more details in the near future. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the continued absence of "Traitor's Gravestones" in-game, and will continue in our efforts to provide a stable and solid service.

Monster

● Changed the monster zones of the Elvia Realm as follows:
Monster Zone Recommended AP Changes
Biraghi Den 250 → 240 Adjusted the AP and DP of monsters in the Biraghi Den to match the changed recommended AP. Changed the level of alert for monsters in the Biraghi Den to be applied differently for individuals. Changed the level of alert in the Biraghi Den to accumulate faster than normal. Changed so that you can obtain a treasure key when defeating Biraghis. You can use the key to open the treasure chest in the Underground Storage of the Biraghi Den.
Altar Imp Habitat 250 → 240 Adjusted the DP of a normal Imp to be appropriate for the changed recommended AP. Adjusted the HP and DP of the Imps. Expanded the attack range of the Imps. Changed the location where the monsters of the Altar Imp Habitat appear. Changed to an earlier time for the monsters of the Altar Imp Habitat to re-appear.
Castle Ruins 270 → 250 Adjusted the HP, AP, and DP of monsters that appear in the Castle Ruins to be suitable for the changed recommended AP.
Swamp Naga Habitat 270 → 260 Adjusted the HP and DP of the Swamp Nagas to be appropriate for the changed recommended AP. Changed so that the Swamp Naga Commander summons groups of Nagas regardless of other groups of Nagas.

Bloody Monastery - Increased the number of monsters that appear in some parts of the Bloody Monastery.

- You can obtain the following keys according to a set probability when defeating monsters in the Biraghi Den.

Item Name

Glimmering Treasure Key

Sparkling Treasure Key

Dazzling Treasure Key

▲ Where to use the treasure keys: 

We sought to change up some of the regions of the Elvia Realm, excluding the more popular Orc Camp and Bloody Monastery zones. First, we lowered the recommended AP for Biraghi Den, Altar Imp Habitat, Castle Ruins, Swamp Naga, and Swamp Fogan to 240~260 so more Adventurers could take up the challenge, while adjusting the junk loot drops to match the reduced AP levels. Those Adventurers who are at higher AP levels than the new recommended amount will find that you'll be able to acquire much more loot than before.
Regarding more detailed changes in Biraghi Den, we changed the bounty system to no longer be competitive but apply to each individual player. In order to encourage further use of this system, we reduced the respawn timer for basic Altar Imp monsters. For Bloody Monastery and Red Orc zones, we increased the density of monsters spawning in all areas except for the few "best spots." Also, while not included in this week's update, we are looking to improve the Castle Ruins mechanic to function not just within but outside of the castle walls.
● Fixed the issue where the following monsters that appeared after using the Crimson Bell item in the Bloody Monastery on the Elvia Realm servers would cause excessive camera shaking when they attacked:
- Cultist Shaman
- Cultist Giant Warrior

 


Quest, Knowledge

● Added a quest to exchange the accessory obtained from the "Old Moon Guild's Trade Offer" quest for a different accessory.
- Once you've completed the "[EXC] A New Choice I" quest, you can accept the following "[EXC] A New Choice II" quests from Jetina:
Quest Name Quest Objective Quest Reward
[EXC] A New Choice II Hand over TET (IV) grade accessory from NPC Jetina's Old Moon Guild's Trade Offer content Choose 1 TET (IV) grade Narc Ear Accessory/Tungrad Earring/Ring of Crescent Guardian
[EXC] A New Choice II Hand over PEN (V) grade accessory from NPC Jetina's Old Moon Guild's Trade Offer content Choose 1 PEN (V) grade Narc Ear Accessory/Tungrad Earring/Ring of Crescent Guardian
* You must have the relevant accessory enhanced to TET (IV) or PEN (V) grade in your inventory (unequipped) to proceed with and complete the quests.
* If you've used a reform stone on the relevant accessory, you will need to extract the stone before you can proceed with and complete either of the quests.
* You can complete either the TET (IV) or PEN (V) grade accessory quest once per family.
● Changed the name of the following quest due to the addition of the aforementioned exchange quests involving the accessories obtained from the "Old Moon Guild's Trade Offer" content.
Before After
[EXC] A New Choice [EXC] A New Choice I
● Changed portions of the quest dialogue for "[EXC] A New Choice I" due to the addition of the "[EXC] A New Choice II" quests.
● Improved the quest "[Valencia] Clean Revenge" to no longer require ancient coins that have been removed as quest rewards.
Ever since the Old Moon Guild began offering an opportunity for a guaranteed PEN (V) accessory, many of our Adventurers have taken them up on that offer. While originally you could exchange your accessory at TET (IV) or PEN (V) enhancement levels once per family, we decided we wanted to lessen the burden of choice for our Adventurers by offering one additional chance to change the type of your accessory.
● Improved the quest "[Gathering Lv. 36] Defense Base Support II" to flow more naturally due to Troll Blood now only being gatherable via using Fluid Collectors on Trolls.
● Changed the Igor Bartali's Adventure Log - Vol. 10 entry's goal from "Sell a Broken Golem's Core" to "Hand over Golem Fragment x10 to Anna Marre of Shuri Farm."

UI

● Added notifications for different circumstances under which you use the Follow function so that it'll be easier for you to see what state you're in.
- This function can be used by approaching adventurers and pressing the CTRL key to interact or the Follow button on the party UI.

Circumstance Notification
Via Interaction and Party UI When using the Follow function Following [{name}].

Previously, when interacting with the Storage Keeper of a town, you always had to turn off your mount inventory by pressing ESC to move your items to your Storage when your mount was nearby. Now, even when your mount is nearby, you can choose whether to open your mount inventory or not by checking or unchecking the View Mount Inventory box. When you sometimes want to see your mount inventory, we hope for you to conveniently use this function to open your mount inventory instantly by checking the View Mount Inventory box.
