MAJOR UPDATES - Do Wielder of the Enlightened Flames, Awakening Maegu

💬 Awakening Maegu has arrived for all adventurers!


Awakening Maegu is a melee class that utilizes fast speed and smooth directional changes to overwhelm enemies, the opposite of the ranged attacks of her Succession. However, her ability to approach enemies in Succession has been incorporated into her Awakening skills. This was done so that she can solely rely on her Awakening skills, instead of constantly switching back to her main weapons skills.


Awakening Maegu has a “Spiritforged" state. When using skills such as “Emberclaw Slash”, “Emberclaw Torrent”, and “Emberclaw Finale”, she enters the “Spiritforged” state. This makes her next skills even more powerful. Unlike other methods that require a change in state or the use of other resources, you will automatically activate the “Spiritforged“ version of skills after the aforementioned skills. As long as you keep the combo going, the “Spiritforged” state will be maintained. So, we expect Awakening Maegu to utilize extended combos to keep the attack going.

We would like to thank all the adventurers who have been waiting for the Awakening Maegu, and we hope you enjoy it.

DARK KNIGHT
In today’s update, the PvE damage of the Succession and Awakening Dark Knight main skills were increased to improve her PvE performance.

Firstly, for the Dark Knight Succession, the duration of the Attack Speed Increase effect of “Unveiled Dagger” has been increased. This addressed the issue of her needing to renew the Attack Speed Increase effect too frequently. Additionally, the ability to combo with Blooming Black Rose has been improved. It was hard to combo due to its limited combo skills, so we expanded on the skills that can combo before and after Blooming Black Rose.

For the Dark Knight Awakening, the cooldown of the DP Decrease skill, “Spirit Legacy”, has been reduced, so that she can keep the DP Decrease effect up for longer.


Succession:
Blooming Black Rose
  • Kamasylvia Slash and Prime: Spirit Legacy skills now combo into attack 2 of the skill when using RMB.
 
Ravage Rake
  • Improved to combo more smoothly from Blooming Black Rose.
 
Unveiled Dagger

CONTENTS

Dallae Pier

  • As more adventurers visit the Land of the Morning Light, the villagers, constables, and laborers of Dallae Pier are livelier.
    • A new Dallae Pier node has been added.
      • When you visit the Dallae Pier node area, you can activate the node.
    • You can use the ‘Dallae Quarry’ production node from the Dallae Pier node. (1 Contribution Point)
      • Basic production: Starlight Powder, Mysterious Powder, Design: Byukgye Reinforced Cannon/Sail/Figurehead/Plating.
 
  • Yorong has started managing the Dallae Pier node.
    • Ships can now be transported to Dallae Pier.

 


 

You can pick a specific type of Epheria Carrack depending on your preference: Advance, Balance, Volante, and Valor. When completed, these carracks offered fixed stats. The recently introduced Panokseon was designed to be different by giving you the flexibility to set the ship’s stats by giving it a large cabin. However, we apologize for not being able to fully consider the consequences of the balance between these ships as thoroughly as possible.


With this patch, the cabin of the Epheria Carracks was doubled. As a result, the combat-oriented “Epheria Carrack: Valor”, shouldn’t be too different in stats compared to the Panokseon. Additionally, Epheria Carrack: Valor will maintain the fastest rate of fire among all ships, meaning it has the shortest reload time. On the other hand, the Panokseon now has the new “Unbeaten” skill that deals wide-range flame damage, which makes it more like the turtle ship. This skill will enable you to attack nearby enemies without needing to turn the ship.

Epheria Carrack - Increased Cabin Space

  • The cabin space of Epheria Carrack: Advance/Balance/Volante/Valor has been increased from 50 to 100.
