  • The security system of Kratuga Ancient Ruins has been partially changed.

    Kratuga Ancient Ruins is a hunting ground for those adventurers whose AP approximates or equals 250. In order to keep these adventurers active in combat, we added monsters that require more focus to be defeated, a security system that is frequently activated, along with other factors.

    However, we have received a lot of feedback that the event (security system) is difficult to complete, and therefore adjusted its difficulty to make it more suitable for the intended group of adventurers.   

     

    • The monsters that appear after the security system has been activated will now be displayed on the minimap as rare monsters.

    • The time limit of Level 1 security has been changed from 1 minute to 2 minutes.
    • The HP of Belloten and Elqueesh that appear when Level 2 security system is activated has decreased by 50%.

    • The AP of Belloten and Elqueesh that appear when Level 2 security system is activated has increased by 16%.

    • The DP of Belloten and Elqueesh that appear when Level 2 security system is activated has decreased by 20%.

    • A security system shutdown message has been added.

  • Readjusted the Skill EXP you can obtain from defeating the monsters of Valencia, Kamasylvia, or Drieghan territories as follows.

    We have been adding updates to help lift the burden of leveling. There were updates that lowered the level requirements on combat skills, improved quest rewards and the different methods for leveling, among others.

    On the other hand, Skill EXP was left untouched. This was because we wanted our adventurers to learn and familiarize themselves with the skills they had learned. The thought at the time was that the amount of Skill EXP given matched this pace. However, the difference between the difficulty of obtaining Combat EXP and that of obtaining Skill EXP became apparent. This naturally became a point of concern as the number of adventurers’ feedback asking us to make changes that will make it easier for them to obtain Skill EXP increased. The addition of the area in Crescent Shrine where the monsters “Possessed by Darkness” dwell was a part of the solution for this specific problem.

    So, we have decided to increase the amount of Skill EXP obtainable in these areas (especially in areas where the number of monsters is low). We will continue to monitor this situation closely and carefully plan out the next steps.

     

    • 10% Increase for Cadry Ruins / Crescent Shrine / Aakman / Hystria

    • 20% Increase for Basilisk Den / Taphtar Plain / Manshaum Forest / Star's End

    • 30% Increase for Pila Ku Jail / Roud Sulfur Mine / Tooth Fairy Forest / Blood Wolf Settlement / Sherekhan Necropolis (Day)

    • 50% Increase for Sherekhan Necropolis (Night)

 

 

[Quest]

  • Added a new quest which can be started with the Mysterious Picture that you obtain from the Suspicious Cargo Ship.

    • The Mysterious Picture that has been discovered this time has sharp blue scales painted on it. By having this picture in your inventory, you will be able to accept relevant quests.

    • The Mysterious Picture that you can obtain from the Suspicious Cargo ship has been changed to be family-bound.

  • Changed the completion text for the quest 'A Cold Hero.'
