  • Hashashin Awakening & Succession

    • The Awakening and Succession for Hashashin, the wielder of the arid sands, are now available.

      • If you accept the main quest "[Hashashin Awakening] Borders of a Vague Dream" and do the consecutive quests with a Hashashin character of Lv. 56 or higher, you will be able to awaken your Hashashin. Also, after completing the awakening quest, you can accept the quest "[Hashashin Succession] A Strange Reunion" to activate succession, too.

      • Go to Hashashin Awakening & Succession introduction post  <HERE>

  • Band

    • Added a new feature "Band" to the Music Album.

      • "Band" is a feature by which you can summon your Shai to perform when you are either logged in on another non-Shai character and have a Shai in your family or when you have two Shais in your family.

      • You can summon your Shai and perform as follows.

        • Choose the song you want to play from the Music Album and press the Play button.

        • Choose the Shai character you want to summon and the instrument you want to play from the Play Settings window.

        • Press Play and your Shai will be summoned and start performing.

        • You can stop the summoned Shai's performance through the Note UI located on the top left side of the screen.

      • You can only summon one Shai character when using this feature and the summoned Shai can only play Solo.

      • The Shai must have a Sol equipped to be summonable.

      • This feature can only be used when in standby mode. You can also summon your Shai from a sailing ship.

      • The summoned Shai will disappear If she is a certain distance away from you.

      • You cannot open the Music Album while the summoned Shai is performing.

      • You cannot use this feature and summon a Shai character from a region where Node/Conquest Wars are in progress.

  • While your Shai is performing, any other adventurer within a certain distance from your Shai cannot perform.


You can only see Shai playing an instrument only when you're playing a Shai. However, there must have been moments where you wanted to see your Shai perform while playing as another class. Hence we have added a feature by which you can summon a Shai character from your Family to perform. You can now summon your Shai to perform any time if you have a Shai in your Family. We are also considering adding another feature by which you can have multiple Shais perform an Ensemble when summoning a Shai while logged in with another Shai.

  • The Strong Protection effect you can receive from Red Battlefield Quartermaster Daz was increased by 3 seconds. In addition, the Super Armor effect was added to the protection effect, and the duration of the added effect is the same as other effects.

  • You can now obtain Skill EXP from items obtained from defeating the following Guild Bosses.

    • Ancient Puturum

    • Ferrid

    • Giant Mudster

The Guild Boss content was available to provide guild members opportunities to get together during the nights on weekends to defeat the Guild Bosses and share the loot. However, as time passed by, adventurers have grown stronger and stronger, making the rewards not as appealing as they used to be. Currently only 20% of all guilds have been defeating all the Guild Bosses excluding Khan, so we have added Skill EXP rewards similar to the Secret Book of the Misty Breeze reward. Also, the Guild Bosses will be different from the Field Bosses, in a way so that all guild members can cheer each other on and enjoy the content. We will continue to think about different rewards and ways to make it more fun.
