● The Caphras' Record containing the story of the Immortal Alchemist Caphras has been discovered.

- Enjoy our story through your adventures in O'dyllita.  

 

● Added a new Monster Zone in O'dyllita.

 

The owners of O'dyllita, the Arid Land, have finally unveiled themselves from secrecy. Fallen Ahibs haunt the thick fog at Thornwood Forest and the Turos have emerged at Tunkuta to obey the Earth God Tunta's will. Strange giant golems rumble in the Olun's Valley and the first of the Fallen Ahibs, tainted by profound ancient darkness, have awakened at the Crypt of Resting Thoughts.

● Added Fallen God's Armor as a new defense gear.

Fallen God's Armor is the ultimate defense gear. It can be crafted by using PEN (V) defense gear but having the need to enhance it again made it feel as if it was a defense gear of a lower tier than PEN (V). We've tried to make Fallen God's Armor gear feel more powerful by adding the PEN (V) icon at all enhancement levels and added a new naming pattern to illustrate its greatness.
