  • The overlords of Star's End have finally been unveiled.

    • The recommended AP for the Star's End Monster Zone is 260.

    • When the Apostle of Immorality dies, there's a certain chance for it to absorb dark energies from Star's End and turn into an Apostle of Malevolence.

    • The Apostle of Malevolence is more powerful than other regular monsters. It will disappear if you cannot defeat it within 5 minutes after it spawns.

  • The new Blackstar Weapons have been added.

    • The Blackstar weapons are higher in grade than the previous weapons.

    • All adventurers, new and old, will have a chance to obtain the Blackstar weapons.

    • However, we designed the new Blackstar weapons in a way that still preserves the values of weapons which already existed in the game. You can achieve growth by either enhancing your old weapons through Caphras enhancements, or by obtaining and enhancing the new Blackstar weapons.

    • The Blackstar weapons are a new challenge for future updates to come.

    • The Blackstar weapons consume 1 Concentrated Magical Black Stone (Weapon) for +0-15 enhancements.

    • The Blackstar weapons consume 1 Pure Magical Black Stone for PRI-PEN enhancements.

    • To start this quest, you need to have the "Remnants of the Rift" item and the knowledge of "The Three Legendary Blacksmiths of Mediah."

    • The Remnants of the Rift can be obtained at a low chance by defeating a boss from the Dark Rift.

    • You can obtain the knowledge of "The Three Legendary Blacksmiths of Mediah" by obtaining and completing "The Three Blacksmiths" quest from Tulem, after you complete the renewed Mediah Main quests once you reach Lv. 56 or higher. Adventurers who have already completed these quests can obtain it by talking to Tulem.

    • The [Blackstar Weapon] quests can only be completed once per character.

      • Giant Mudster, Dim Tree Spirit, Red Nose, Dastard Bheg, Katzvariak, Khalk, and Blue Whale will drop Mass of Pure Magic at a certain rate.

      • It drops when defeating monsters and gathering, at a low rate (exceptions: water scooping, digging in the desert, and milking cows).

      • You can exchange Destructive Illusion x15 for Mass of Pure Magic x1 via O'Arma, an Ahib who can be found at Star's End.
