NEW & IMPROVEMENTS

CLASS CHANGES
CLASS CHANGES
Today's update on skill add-ons brings about the beginning of the 2nd wave of the class balance changes.

Previously, skill add-on effects were divided by 3 tiers, but some effects were too effective, potentially causing some discrepancies between classes.
Thus, we decided to implement a more simpler, more convenient, albeit fair, change to all skill add-ons entirely.

To summarize the implemented changes...
First, skill add-on tiers are now determined by skill cooldown timers.
Second, skill add-on tiers are now only discernable by the duration of the granted effects.

We've also adjusted the duration based on skill add-on types. For buff-type skill add-on effects, we've mainly increased their duration across the board, mainly in hopes to reduce the stress of keeping these buffs applied for our adventurers.
Certain special "on hit" skill add-on effects that apply Down Smash, Air Smash, or recover HP have seen the numbers unified for all tiers, hence making them more accessible regardless of tier.

There may be a brief period of adjustment required for getting used to these new skill add-on changes, but we graciously ask for your understanding as we sought to implement these changes to make skill add-ons more accessible and enjoyable for all adventurers, old and new.
Ever since last week's 1st wave of class balance changes, we've been closely monitoring for and planning the direction of the next wave of changes. As today's update dealt with skill add-on changes, do note that we will focus on tweaking the changed damage numbers for the time being.

Skill Add-ons
  • Revamped the skill add-on system.
 
Unified Skill Add-on Effects
  • Unified the number of granted skill add-on effects for all tiers.
    i.e.) Extra AP Against Monsters +10/20/30 → +30 for all tiers
※ Now skill add-on tiers are discernable by their duration, which are determined by their respective tier.
 

 
Skill Add-on Groups
  • Divided skill add-ons into groups based on the effect.
    • Offensive A/B, defensive, debuffs A/B, and other effects.
Offensive A
(Stat buffs)
Extra AP Against Monsters+, Extra Damage to Humans+, Critical Hit Rate+, Attack/Casting Speed+, Movement Speed+, All Accuracy Rate+
Offensive B
(Damage buffs)
Down Attack damage+, Back Attack damage+, Critical Hit damage+, Air Attack damage+
Defensive
(Stat buffs)
All DP+, All Evasion Rate+
Debuff A
(Stat debuffs)
Extra Damage to Humans-, All DP-, All Evasion Rate-, All Accuracy Rate-
Debuff B
(Speed debuffs)
Attack/Casting Speed-, Movement Speed-
Other effects Bleeding damage, recover HP per hit, recover resource per hit, Down Smash, Air Smash
  • Removed the "reduce resource for target" on hit effect.
 

 
Duration by Skill Add-on Group
  • Changed the duration of skill add-on effects according to each tier and group as follows.
Offensive A
(Stat buffs)
7 sec for all tiers → 7/12/20 sec
Offensive B
(Damage buffs)
5 sec for all tiers → 5/7/10 sec
Defensive
(Stat buffs)
7 sec for all tiers → 10/15/25 sec
Debuff A
(Stat debuffs)
10 sec for all tiers → 7/10/12 sec
Debuff B
(Speed debuffs)
10 sec for all tiers → 4/7/10 sec
Other effects Bleeding damage: 50/100/150 bleeding damage per 3 sec for 15/15/15 sec → 100 bleeding damage per 3 sec for 9/15/27 sec
Down Smash & Air Smash: 10/15/20% chance → 15% chance for all tiers
Recover HP per hit: recover 5/10/15 HP per hit → recover 10 HP per hit for all tiers
Recover MP/WP/SP per hit: 10/20/30 MP/WP/SP per hit → 20 MP/WP/SP per hit for all tiers
 

 
Standard for Skill Add-on Tiers
  • Reorganized the skill add-on tiers according to each skill's cooldown timer.
Tier 1 Cooldown is 5 sec or below
Tier 2 Cooldown is over 5 sec but below 13 sec
Cooldown is 13 sec or above, yet skill can be used during cooldown
Tier 3 Cooldown is 13 sec or above
※ All skill add-on tiers are set according to the cooldown timer of the skill at max rank.
(Ex 1. Eradication (I to III) has a cooldown of 8/7/5 sec per rank, but based on its max rank III's cooldown (5 sec), its add-on is tier 1.)
※ If a skill has a Prime version, the cooldown of the Prime skill's max rank is taken into consideration for all variations of the skill (I, II, Absolute, etc.)
(Ex 2. Flash Slash has a Prime version of the skill, and its max rank is Prime: Flash Slash IV, which has a cooldown of 12 sec, thus making it tier 2 for all variations (I, II, Absolute, etc.))

 
Skill Add-on Rules
  • All skill add-on effects follow the same existing rules for how buffs and debuffs are applied.
- Identical effects are prioritized based on the length of their duration. Effects with longer durations must run out for those with shorter ones to be applied.
- Identical effects with identical durations will refresh the overall duration upon being re-applied.
- A skill's add-on effects and inherent effects can be applied at the same time.
※ All saved skill add-on settings and skill presets have been reset during the Nov 22 (Wed) maintenance due to the skill add-on system revamp.
- All adventurers have been issued an [Event] Secret Book of Old Moon (3 Days) via Mail (B) during the Nov 22 (Wed) maintenance.
- Characters can freely enter the Battle Arena via the ESC menu from Lv. 56 to set their skill add-ons through NPC Tachros.

CONTENTS

The latest boss monster in the Black Shrine, the Imoogi, was one of the toughest bosses to defeat due to its high difficulty. To address this, we've eliminated certain mechanics in the Calamity 1 and Calamity 2, allowing players to focus solely on battling the Imoogi. For the remaining Calamity levels, we've adjusted the damage and reduced the overall burden of game mechanics, making it easier for players to concentrate on their fight with the Imoogi. Additionally, we've unified the hit count of Duoksini, known for its high damage, making it more manageable than before.
Bosses Changes
Imoogi
  • Removed the pattern where Imoogi would drop scales and create lightning and sea tornadoes when its HP decreased by 70% or more.
  • Reduced the damage from the cloud by 50% and removed fixed damage from the cloud.
  • Removed the damage from the cloud and lightning that appear when Moon Aura is created.
  • Changed the number of false Moon Auras that appear from 2 to 1.

    • Red Sea Tornado: 3 hits → 1 hit
  • Halved the duration of the sea tornadoes.
  • Reduced the AP of lightning, cloud, and sea tornadoes by 20%.
  • Improved the Stone Lantern's detection speed when Earth Aura seeps in during the second phase.
  • Improved the Stone Lantern's reaction even when the sea tornado is at a greater distance during the second phase.
  • Changed so that combat can proceed without performing certain patterns during the second phase in Calamity 1-2.
Duoksini
  • Unified Duoksini's hit counts into a single hit.
  • Reduced the total damage from Duoksini's attack by about 30%.
    • However, since his attack is now a single hit, you may take more damage when hit by an attack than before.
  • Removed the attack with Pull debuff when he raises both hands and strike downward, and changed so that damage is applied only to the downward strike.
  • Changed so that the hit starts when the arms are fully spread during the action of spreading both arms and gathering energy.
  • Fixed the issue where Duoksini would rotate to face the target while stunned if the summoning of Dokkebi failed."
Apex Changui
  • Improved some of Apex Changui's hit detections to be more accurate.
  • Fixed the issue where Apex Changui's position was occasionally abnormal after certain attacks.
Golden Pig King
  • Changed the pattern where the Golden Pig King uses Sun Aura to burn Adventurers with a protective shield to proceed in place without moving.
Oduksini
  • Reduced the AP of monsters appearing in Calamity 1 by 20%.
  • Reduced the AP of monsters appearing in Calamity 2 by 46%.
  • Improved to show the attack area before Oduksini moves to the center and releases Blade of Darkness.
  • Changed so that Blade of Darkness no longer tracks the target and attacks the first location.
Bamboo Legion Lieutenant
  • Fierce Bamboolings have appeared on the roadside of Shimnidae Forest.
    • You can encounter the Bamboo Legion by following the path where the Bamboolings are.
  • Improved so that if the following bosses and monsters leave the designated area, they will return to the area and continue the battle.
    • [Beacon of the People] Bamboo Legion Archer, [Beacon of the People] Bamboo Legion Swordsman, [Beacon of the People] Bamboo Legion Spearman
    • [Beacon of the People] Bamboo Legion Lieutenant
Sangoon

  • Reduced the damage dealt when Sangoon first appears by about 50%.
  • Fixed the issue where certain attack patterns appear in succession when Sangoon's HP decreases to a certain point.
  • Improved so that you do not die even if you are hit by a fatal attack other than the final attack in Calamity 1-2.
  • Increased the time for Sangoon to prepare for the final attack in Calamity 1-2 by 50%.
Mudang Wraith
  • Removed the Stiffness effect during the Servile Wraith's attack in Calamity 1-2.
Gumiho
  • Reduced the AP of monsters appearing in Calamity 1 by 20%.

[Black Shrine] Boss Blitz Rewards

Previously, obtaining crystals from the Black Shrine and production nodes was a time-consuming process because they could be obtained based on the probability. To address this, we've increased the chance of obtaining crystals and significantly boosted the number of Sangpyeong Coins you can get from the Black Shrine, which can be readily exchanged for crystals.
  • Increased the number of Sangpyeong Coins that can be obtained from the weekly Boss Blitz Reward of the Black Shrine.

MONSTER

Hollow Maretta, the Siren of the Ocean

Sightings of Hollow Maretta, the Siren of the Ocean, have been reported from the vast Margoria Sea. Unlike pirate fleets, Hollow Maretta is rarely encountered by sailors traversing the Margoria Sea. Being a mythical creature akin to the mermaids of lore, encountering Maretta at sea is quite a feat in itself, but upon trespassing her waters, adventurers will hear the seductive melodies of her song fill up a large area (as the background music will change immediately.)
Those who dare brave their chances against Hollow Maretta will have to navigate past her summoned typhoons and Hekaru minions (and their explosive attacks). Much caution is advised.
Rumors abound of sailors who used to frequent the Dancing Marlin Tavern to be lost at sea after sailing towards a mysterious melody and beautiful voice.
Hollow Maretta, the Siren of the Ocean, will appear in the distant Great Ocean while singing a mysterious melody. If while navigating the Great Ocean you suddenly hear a mysterious melody accompanied by a beautiful voice, this means that Hollow Maretta is somewhere nearby. With a school of Hekaru she "siren-aded" herself, Hollow Maretta lays waiting, luring unsuspecting seafarers to their watery graves.
  • Somewhere in the Margoria Seas, a strangely seductive song can be heard.
    • Follow the song to encounter Hollow Maretta, the Siren of the Ocean.
※ The background music will change to Hollow Maretta's theme if she has spawned nearby.
※ Hollow Maretta will reappear 1 hour after being defeated.
 
  • Defeat Hollow Maretta, the Siren of the Ocean, to obtain the following items according to a set probability.
Major Loot
Siren Song Aura (guaranteed)
Moss-Covered Map
Oquilla's Flower
Sunset Black Stone
Wooden Nail Soaked in Seawater
Finely Polished Pine Plywood
Glue With Traces of Deep Waves

Sethra's Artifact - Sailing EXP, Sethra's Artifact - Sailing Mastery
Resplendent Lightstone of Flora
 


Manos Sailing Log

Along with the addition of Hollow Maretta, we've also added a Manos life tool for our Sailing adventurers. Bearing a similar effect to the Manos Riding Crop, the Manos Sailing Log will increase your ship's speed for various situations. You can craft this adventurer's tome by using materials obtained from defeating Hollow Maretta in the Great Ocean. Srulk and Loggia Sailing Logs are also available for purchase from certain town vendors, which we hope will help any seafaring adventurers who yearn to sail in the open seas.
  • You can craft the "Manos Sailing Log" with Siren Song Auras.

MOUNT

Boarding & Disembark

Another update requested by many of our seafaring adventurers is to increase the distance permitted to board and disembark from a ship. Today's update doubles the pre-existing board/disembark distance, which we hope will help our adventurers conveniently set out to sea.
  • Doubled the distance for boarding and disembarking from ships.


QUEST & KNOWLEDGE

Prelude to Ulukita, the Exalted Land

The third region of Ulukita will soon be revealed.
We are also planning to joint-release the main questline along with the third region, but before all that, today's update brings to us a prequel quest leading into Ulukita itself.
This questline covers the tale of Prince Bareeds III, an unfortunate figure in the current landscape of Mediahn politics. Please look forward to it.
  • Troublesome rumors are circulating of a certain prince exiled to Altinova.
Rumors of Bareeds III, the last of his royal blood line, abound regarding how he's come out of hiding in Mediah only to be exiled to Valencia. They claim that the Prince Bareeds III was finally escorted via convoy back to Valencia. However, seeing how the streets of Altinova are in turmoil due to these rumors, it appears that the ride home wasn't so smooth. It appears the hour has come for the same adventurers who rescued Mediah from Illezra's minion, Maudi Budar, before will be needed in these lands once more.
  • You can now proceed with the "[Ulukita] Dark Whispers in Altinova," the questline preluding to Ulukita, the Exalted Land.
    • You will need to have completed the final main quest in Valencia "[Valencia] Dawn of a New Age" in order to accept the Ulukita prequel quest.
    • Completing this questline will award you with "[Title] Howl of the Wilds" and the "Record: Rumors of Altinova" item that bears the details of this questline in writing.

 


 

New Garmoth's Heart Quest: Kukao and the Crimson Paint

Previously we had added a questline involving the records of the ancient kingdom of Orzeca to obtain Garmoth's Heart. Today's update adds an entirely new questline to obtain an additional heart.
The previously added "Orzecan records" questline had adventurers engaging in various activities and progression, and, after investing much time and resources, would reward adventurers with a Garmoth's Heart. Today's update is a bit more straightforward, as you will need to defeat the Crimson Dragon enough times until you collect the right amount of items to trade in for her most coveted heart.
We also decided to increase the max price of Garmoth's Heart on the Central Market. We hope these changes add more weight to the accomplishment of obtaining this precious crystal, as well as further add to the anticipation and excitement towards the next encounter with the Crimson Dragon herself.
""Queek! I'm gonna capture a side of the Crimson Dragon that'll put Kakuo's artwork to shame. Queek!
Queek! There's some item known as bloodstones. If I can get my paws on those... I'll be able to paint a proper masterpiece! Queek, queek""
  • Kukao, resident painter of Garmoth's Nest, is seeking some crimson paint to use to paint a masterpiece better than anything his brother Kakuo could ever paint.
    • Added the "Happy Crimson Accident" quest, which rewards a Garmoth's Heart item once per Family.
Quest & NPC Objective Reward
Happy Crimson Accident
("Fearless" Kukao at Garmoth's Nest)
Hand over Garmoth's Bloodstone x10
Garmoth's Heart x1
 
  • Added Garmoth's Bloodstone to the loot table of "Garmoth's Roaring Reward Bundle" rewarded from completing Kukao's weekly quests "[Weekly] Gotta Frame It, Garmoth I - III."
※ However, any Garmoth's Roaring Reward Bundles obtained before this update and/or before midnight on Thursday of the update week will not contain Garmoth's Bloodstone.
※ The weekly Garmoth subjugation quests from Kukao reset every Thursday at midnight. You can still complete the weekly quests you've accepted before the update.
 
  • Changed the max price of Garmoth's Heart on the Central Market
Before After
9.1 billion Silver 20 billion Silver
※ The max price is the max bidding price for an item registered on the Central Market.

NODE/CONQUEST WAR

Alliance Node/Conquest War Participant Confirmation

  • Added the feature to confirm the total number of participants in Node/Conquest Wars within the alliance.
    • Confirm this via the Node/Conquest War participant indicator at the bottom of the Guild (G) - Guild Member Status tab.
    • This indicator will be displayed when there is more than 1 alliance member who has clicked the participate button in the Node/Conquest War.

 


 

When building a fort for Node/Conquest Wars, it's crucial to consider not only the Node War area but also the surrounding terrain and distance to the nearest town. However, we've noticed that battles can become unfairly biased due to enemies resurrecting in Safe Zones near allied forts. This issue stems from the fact that, unlike towns, resurrection points within Safe Zones are not consistent. This variability has posed a significant challenge for Adventurers responsible for fort construction, as it's difficult to predict for each Node War. To address this and ease the burden of constantly determining Safe Zone resurrection points, we've decided to disable the Safe Zone resurrection feature.
  • Disabled the "Resurrect at the closest Safe Zone" option for participants who die during Node/Conquest Wars.

 

Additionally, during Node/Conquest Wars, players often die outside the designated combat area, which previously forced them to resurrect in a Safe Zone or town, far from the battle. This not only caused delays in rejoining the fight but also disrupted the overall battle dynamics, especially from the leader's perspective. To resolve this, we've now enabled players to resurrect at their fort, even if they die outside the designated area, allowing for quicker re-engagement in the battle. We've also noted that restrictions are not consistently applied outside the node area in nodes with stat limits. We recognize this issue and are exploring further improvements.
  • Enabled resurrection at the Fort/Command Post/Field HQ for participants who die outside the Node War area during Node/Conquest Wars.
