Patch Notes - May 8th 2019

08 May 2019 14:00

Greetings Adventurers,

Marni is great! And so are his inventions! Rumor has it that new Marni's Stones have been dropping from monsters around Valencia, Kamasylvia and Drieghan. These new Marni's Stone will grant special accessories when completed and will always grant a new Marni's Stone, so there is no excuse now to help Marni with his craziness!

On the other hand, Hands of Gold event is returning for one more year. Collect special coins and exchange them for items that will make even Midas jealous!
