New and Improvements

Character

● Added a new banner with information on Season Characters, their benefits, plus the option to create one after pressing the button to create a new character from the Character Selection screen.
- This UI will only be displayed for Adventurers who are able to create a Season Character.

 

● Changed the "test NPCs" in Battle Arena from monster-type to character-type.
- When skills are used on these test NPCs, any inflicted debuffs/CCs and the number of times the corresponding debuffs/CCs are inflicted will now be displayed.

We've changed the test monsters available in the Battle Arena to improve user experience when practicing for PvP and/or acquiring data on class changes. We've also added an interface that displays specific debuffs as well as a counter to keep track of the total number of times said debuff is being applied. We hope this encourages more Adventurers to test their mettle in the Battle Arena.
● Fixed the issue where the Invincible effect wouldn't go away if your screen froze temporarily while your character had the effect applied.
 
 

● Changed the idle animation for the Sleepless Sun Outfit. (Modified 11/23/2021 08:46 UTC)
