● Blue Maned Lion’s Real Estate Agents event has started.

- December 8, 2021 (Wed) - December 20, 2021 (Mon) at 23:00 (UTC).

Adventurers, our GM team is SUPER DUPER proud of the manor they’ve been decorating! Now, they’re looking for help in sharing their amazing decorations with the world. This is not an easy task, as you may know, so the GMs thought the community would be the best ones to help out!

If you help the GM team share their manor by creating your own “real estate” posters, you’ll be able to win some great prizes, including a jukebox and Blessing of Kamasylve!
We’ll see you at the GM manor during the visiting hours!

New and Improvements


● Added text that reveals the success rate of preventing an accessory from dropping in enhancement grade when using Cron Stones.
- Now when you use Cron Stones and fail to successfully enhance an accessory, you'll have a 60% chance for your accessory to retain its enhancement level, or 40% chance to see it drop.


● Changed the maximum number of residences you can purchase as follows.

Before After
Maximum of 7 including normal residences and manor
(after using both Residence +1 Expansion Coupons from quests)
Maximum of 8, including up to 7 normal residences and 1 manor
(after using both Residence +1 Expansion Coupons from quests)

● Separated [Warrior, Archer] Goyen Gloves and [Warrior, Archer] Goyen Shoes from [Warrior, Archer] Goyen Armor.
- Added [Warrior, Archer] Goyen Gloves and [Warrior, Archer] Goyen Shoes to the outfit boxes that contain [Warrior, Archer] Goyen Armor.
* Adventurers who had the [Warrior, Archer] Goyen Armor in their possession will receive the [Warrior, Archer] Goyen Gloves and [Warrior, Archer] Goyen Shoes in their storage in Heidel. 



● Changed the way summoning works with the Ibedor's Scroll.
* The summon scrolls can still be used in the old method of simply summoning a boss by using a scroll.

Before After
Party leader uses the scroll at the designated location to summon monsters.
Party leader and members get loot upon defeating said monsters.
Go to the designated spawn location to interact with the NPC and use the UI to summon.
The party leader puts in the number of scrolls according to the stage the party wishes to attempt.
The rest of the party member put in the same number of scrolls.
The party leader and members all get their rewards as loot.
Stage Required Scrolls
1 1 each
The update, which increased the number of zones that dropped Caphras Stones, also increased the amount of stones you could obtain from PvE content, which unfortunately made the Venomous Night Fang (Ibedor's Scroll) obtainable from the O'dyllita territory somewhat less appealing than before. To reinforce the original design of this summon scroll as a primary means of acquiring Caphras Stones, we improved it with an update similar to that of the Ancient Relic Crystal Summon Scroll. However, since Ibedor's Scroll summons powerful bosses fitting of the territory of O'dyllita, we felt any stage higher than one would feel too burdensome for our Adventurers. While limited to just one stage, having an entire party summon these mighty foes will guarantee a quicker end to this heroic ordeal, and thus, a faster means to reap the rewards.
● Changed the design of the Yar! invite window.
- Now when you select a mode, you will also be able to see information on the types of hands that will be in play.
- Each game mode now has its own unique background image to accompany the different difficulty levels and descriptions.


● Slightly moved the location of the text in the middle of the Yar! board.
● Adjusted the dialog text of Yar! NPC opponents to no longer touch the outer margins of the speech bubbles. 



● Changed the loot table for Blue Whales hunted from the seas of Balenos, Calpheon, and Mediah.
- Added the Blue Whale's Oily Skin item.
* You have a low chance to loot the Blue Whale's Oily Skin, which you can exchange into the Blue Whale Wall Decoration from Karon in Velia.
- While Blue Whale Oil and Tendon will now be a guaranteed drop from butchering Blue Whales after hunting them, we've slightly reduced the maximum amount of Blue Whale Tendons obtainable.
- You can obtain the following items from butchering Blue Whales after hunting them down.

Quest, Knowledge

● Changed certain quests in the Elvia Realm.
- Fixed the issue where the "[Elvia] Elvia Realm: Dark Knights and the Ahib" quest wouldn't appear in your Suggested tab in the Quests window if you had already completed the quest with a different class.

Quest Improvements
Young Ancient Spirits
- Now marks the monster zones with the highest chance for Young Valtarra, Okiara, and Narc spirits to spawn as the quest objective location.

Kzarka: Barrier of Infestation I-V
- Changed to now reset every Thursday.
- Changed so that you can reobtain the summon scroll from the Black Spirit if you either lose the scroll or fail to defeat any level of Kzarka.

* Please note that while either accepting the quest, or having completed yet still not handed in the quest will apply the new weekly quest reset rules, completing and handing in the quest before maintenance will still apply the old reset rules (of resetting in seven days), and will implement the new rules once the weekly quest can be re-accepted again.

Accepted or completed yet didn't hand before Dec 8, 2021 (Wed) maintenance Applies new rules
(reset every Thursday at midnight)
Completed and handed in before Dec 8, 2021 (Wed) maintenance Can be re-accepted once seven days have passed from the point of completion;
Once quest can be re-accepted, new rules go into effect

● Changed the Timeworn Golden Pendant obtainable from Treasure Chests to now be exchangeable with Heidel's Jeweler, Dora Fonti.

● Added info regarding appearances by mount tier when checking your horse's mount information.
- The appearance info will be displayed as a breed number depending on the appearance of the relevant horse within its tier.
* However, certain horses with fixed Lv. 1 skills do not have appearance info.


- Accordingly, you can differentiate the appearances of horses by their breed number within its tier. The breed number is decided within its tier, so even if they have the same breed number, the appearances differ if they are of different tiers.

Tier 1 Breed 1 Tier 6 Breed 1 Tier 8 Breed 1

● Improved so that you can set the number of Old Moon Boss Seals you want to exchange for the following items.
