Ulukita Update

Available on November 29

New Main Story

Reunite in Ulukita with Bareeds III, the tragic prince of Mediah...

The story continues nearly seven years since the first encounter with the Mediahn prince in 2016.

Embrace the new winds arising in Ulukita.


A recap of the four major characters... 

Soon to be reunited in your adventure! 

▲ Bareeds III
▲ Neruda Shen
▲ Sarma Anin
▲ Sirare


Hey listen! Let the melodies of Altinova recall your memories.


The Last Prince of Mediah
Bareeds III



The Three Days of Darkness – a calamity brought upon Mediah by Illezra.  


For three days, the people in Mediah trembled in fear, consumed by madness, as pitch-black darkness covered the lands, blotting out both sun and moon. 

And, alone in the dark, Mediah Castle was lit ablaze.

Weak and incompetent, the monarchy easily crumbled, while Bareeds III barely escaped with his life, becoming the sole survivor of his royal bloodline. 
From Neruda Shen, the self-appointed premier who claimed to be speaking on the young prince’s behalf, 
to the Mediahn masses, whose favor he had long lost due to the oppressive rule of the Aksulp royal family, Bareeds III realized he was not safe and soon embarked to seek asylum in Valencia. 

However, during that very journey, an incident occurs...



Mediah Merchants Union Chairman
Neruda Shen 


The war between Calpheon and Valencia in the pastand the continent of Mediah in between. 

In place of the rather passive Mediahn monarchy at the time, the Mediah Merchants Union foresaw the flow of events and took matters in their own hands. 

They gathered blacksmiths to support the Calpheon Alliance with resources, and successfully secured trading rights of the Black Crystals, whose value Calpheon didn’t fully realize.

They used part of the profits amassed from Calpheon to provide aid to Valencia, thereby also securing trade rights with the latter nation, who also would provide protection in return.

By single-handedly monopolizing the supply of goods in the region, they accumulated vast wealth, and with it, the Mediah Merchants Union built Altinova

Later, Neruda Shen would be voted in as chairman of the union with overwhelming support. 
The Mediah Merchants Union soon became renamed as the Shen Merchant Guild.

With all of Mediah completely under his thumb, and now premier, Neruda Shen’s gaze lays upon the untouched lands of Ulukita...



Captain of the Shroud Knights
Sarma Anin 



The Shroud Knights, an order of knights who answer solely to the Mediahn royal family. 


Yet during the Three Days of Darkness, the order failed to protect the royal family. 
The Shroud Knights were left with nothing and brought dishonor to their name. 


Their purpose lost, their body and soul in disarray, the remnants scattered throughout Mediah. 


Sarma Anin rose from the lowly ranks of a foot soldier to Captain of the Shroud Knights, solely due to her exceptional combat prowess.


Having risked her life to rescue the Mediahn prince before, she continues to serve as loyal retainer to Bareeds III even to this day. 

But now, she requests an investigation into the incident which occurs during the prince’s exile...




Prophet of Altinova 



One of the sons of the famed prophet family of Mediah, Sirare.

"The dark shadow is returning with the witch of darkness.." 


His prophecies had never missed their mark, so when he foretold the coming of a threat equal in scale to the Three Days of Darkness to befall upon Mediah, all of Altinova was shaken to its core.


Having stood by the side of Bareeds III as his childhood friendSirare played a crucial role in aiding Bareeds III's exile, alongside Sarma Anin. 


Now, Sirare has a new prophecy to unfold to the Adventurer... 



Reunited at last 

The divide widens between Bareeds III and Neruda Shen 

Long-buried secrets of Mediah uncovered 

A land where new history shall be written... 

Ulukita awaits you, Adventurer.

New Monster Zone: "Darkseeker's Retreat"

Recommended AP 310
Recommended DP 420

Darkseekers' Retreat is the newest addition to Ulukita; this monster zone contains various item drops that will help Adventurers, such as yourself, grow even stronger.
There are two mechanics to look out for, the first being the Eternal Darkseeker. This event has a chance to spawn after killing the different monsters within the Darkseeker’s Retreat. Large amounts of Followers will then start to spawn and attack you after killing the Eternal Darkseeker. Do not panic too much, as these monsters have reduced HP compared to their counterparts.
For the next event, after defeating the different Darkseekers, you will have a chance to spawn the Blazing Embers. After destroying it, the Sealed Artifact will activate. For approximately five minutes, the activated Artifact will disorientate your enemies at certain intervals. However, Followers will not be affected by the Sealed Relic. Defeating a Blazing Ember will drop you a guaranteed Embers of Resonance!
On that note, let’s take a look at the different loot that can be obtained from this monster zone!

New Items
