Tungrad Ruins

In the Tungrad Ruins, you take down hordes of monsters using the Essence of Ulukita obtained from the Tungrad Visionary. However, some classes were able to attack monsters within a range where the Essence of Ulukita effect was maintained, which gave them an advantage compared to other classes. Now, the Tungrad Visionary is no longer affected by the Essence of Ulukita and won't remove it, narrowing the gap between classes. And by strengthening the Essence of Ulukita effect, albeit for a shorter duration, the speed of defeating monsters is preserved.

City of the Dead

In the City of the Dead, you must first eliminate the Tehmelun Messengers who cast powerful spells and then take care of the rest of the monsters. To speed up this process, we've decreased the distance the Tehmelun Messengers move before casting and improved the monsters summoned by the Knight of Conviction to approach faster.
  • Slightly decreased the distance the [Black Sand Visionary] Tehmelun Messengers move to cast spells.
  • Changed the [Beckoned] Tehmelun Seekers and [Beckoned] Tehmelun Elite Soldiers called by the Knight of Conviction to be more aggressive.
