New and Improvements

● Gushing Waters - Changed to prioritize activating Wolf's Frenzy or Spiral Torpedo when pressing SHIFT + F or W + F after using the skill.

Contents

● Made the following improvements to how summoning works with the item Pila Fe Scroll:

Before After
Party leader uses the scroll at the designated location to summon monsters.
Party leader gets loot and quest reward.
Party members get loot.
Go to the designated spawn location to interact with the Faded Ancient Relic 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.

※ The summon scrolls can still be used via the old method!

* The summon scrolls can still be used via the old method where the party leader just summons the boss.
- The Faded Ancient Relic has up to five different "stages" in which monsters can be summoned. The required amount of scrolls and recommended AP per stage are as follows.

Stages Required Scrolls Recommended AP
1 1 from every member 160 or higher
with a party
2 2 from every member 200 or higher
with a party
3 3 from every member 230 or higher
with a party
4 4 from every member 250 or higher
with a party
5 5 from every member 270 or higher
with a party

* The difficulty of the boss is determined by the number of scrolls used regardless of the size of your party. In other words, we strongly recommend you bring as many party members as you can.

For example, the Stage 1 boss summoned by one person registering one summon scroll versus one party of five members registering one summon scroll each will be of the same difficulty level. Therefore, bringing as many party members as possible will greatly increase the efficiency of taking down these bosses.
- Monsters summoned will be stronger when you attempt higher stages. However, you will be able to defeat the monsters, even if you do not meet the recommended AP, if you are in a full party of 5 members.
- Additionally, using the improved method of summoning the boss give you a slight chance to face the [Drawn to the Ancient Relic] monsters that drop special loot.
* Defeat these monsters to obtain additional loot.
● Improved the explanation in the tooltip information of the following boss summoning items to make it easier to understand the summoning mechanic:
- Ancient Relic Crystal Summon Scroll, Ibedor's Scroll, Pila Fe Scroll 
We have improved the guild combat missions. Before, the completion rewards were different even if the size limitations were the same, depending on the number of monsters the mission required the guild to kill. Therefore, we have improved the mission rewards to scale based on guild size, lowered the number of monsters for the unpopular missions, cleared out some of the regular missions, and added new missions. However, the guild boss subjugation missions that require the guild boss summons were kept the same.
● Changed the rewards of guild combat missions to the following according to the guild sizes.
- Regardless of which guild combat missions are completed, the guild will be rewarded the rewards listed below, according to their size.
- These changes are applied to [Subjugation] missions, but not to [Boss Subjugation] mission.
