New Additions and Improvements


Ship Equipment Enhancement Item (Black Stones) Simplification - Tidal Black Stone

Ship captains across the Great Ocean will now find the process of enhancing their ship equipment simplified, as the required material item has been streamlined to a single type: the "Tidal Black Stone".
With this simplification, enhancing ship equipment will be based solely on the quantity of "Tidal Black Stones" rather than finding the appropriate type. Consequently, the various items previously obtained through quests, defeating Great Ocean monsters, or bartering can now all be acquired as "Tidal Black Stones", making management much more convenient.
This change eliminates the hassle that new captains faced when first upgrading their ships, as they no longer need to continuously exchange Lv. 1 barter items for "Verdant Black Stones."
Most notably, the enhancement process for Carrack/Panokseon equipment has been made more convenient. Now, there's no need to send workers to production nodes to collect "Starlight Powder" in advance, or to workshops to craft "Sunset Black Stones." This improvement allows both novice captains preparing their own Carrack and those striving to further enhance their existing Carrack to set sail with a lighter heart.

Tidal Black Stone

  • Simplified the means to enhance ship equipment into one enhancement material: the Tidal Black Stone.
  • Added Tidal Black Stone to the Crow Coin Shop available for Crow Coin x10.
    • You can also obtain the Tidal Black Stone through various means such as quests, Bartering, exchanging level 2 to 3 sea trade goods, and defeating Great Ocean sea creatures.
    • As a result, Frosted and Fiery Black Stones and Starlight Crystals will no longer be available for purchase.
      • Any Starlight Crystals already in possession can be sold for Crow Coin x100 each, which is equivalent to their original purchase price.

Ship Equipment Enhancement Items

  • Simplified the types and adjusted the amount of Black Stones required to enhance ship equipment as follows.
