Ranger's Awakening skills arefor the most partpowerful, but they were also designed with long cooldowns.

● Prime: Trample - Improved the skill to evenly deal damage within the adjusted area of effect.
● Prime: Jolt Wave - Improved the skill to evenly deal damage within the adjusted area of effect.

Chain Crash: Sah Chakram 1254% x 9 1312% x 9
● Chain Crash: Sah Chakram - Added Critical Hit Damage +5% for 10 sec to the skill.
Awakening Kunoichi often ends up behind a monster after using her Main Weapon skills, which makes it inconvenient to switch back to Awakening. To alleviate this, we added the 'no collision while moving' effect to Half Moon Slash so that Kunoichi could easily attack from behind while in Awakening stance. We also increased the PvE damage for her skills other than Lethal Spin Spree so that you could continuously deal damage even when Lethal Spin Spree wasn't available.

* An Increased Life EXP +100% buff until you reach Artisan 1 will be active in the normal servers for two weeks between Apr. 7 (after maintenance) – Apr. 21 (before maintenance) in celebration of the New Olvia server.

 


Monster

● The Vessel of Inquisition, emanating the scent of death, has been discovered in a part of Star's End where adventurers rarely set foot. The rotting stench of Blackstar from the Vessel of Inquisition envelopes all of Star's End, making Kzarka's apostles willingly sacrifice themselves as offerings.
- Changed the locations of some Star's End monsters.
- Placed a total of three Vessels of Inquisition around the edges of Star's End.
- Strike the Vessel of Inquisition to call forth Kzarka's apostles, who covet the energy contained within it.
- The apostles will attack the Vessel of Inquisition to obtain the energy spilling out from the fragment of the Blackstar. They will disperse once the Vessel of Inquisition is destroyed.
- The apostles coveting the power within the Vessel of Inquisition are stronger than previous Star's End monsters.
- The Vessel of Inquisition will shatter if too many apostles coveting its power gather.

Star's End is the most popular monster zone for Adventurers. Therefore, we added a new mechanic so that Star's End could be enjoyed by even more Adventurers (those of you who have been to Traitor's Graveyard in Marie Cave may find this mechanic familiar). However, be warned, the apostles coveting the power within the Vessels of Inquisition are stronger than the regular monsters in Star's End.

System

● Improved the weather transition in Elvia Realm monster zones so that it would look more natural when entering and leaving them.
After the Elvia update, we thought that the sudden change in weather that occurs when entering the Hadum-tainted Elvia Realm looked unnatural and strenuous on the eyes. As such, the weather transition was changed to be more natural in order to create a more immersive gameplay experience.
