MAJOR UPDATES - Lekrashan, the Goldmont Battle Fleet  

● The Old Moon Rescue Party has reported that Lekrashan, which used to appear in the border between Ross Sea and Margoria Sea, has moved to the border between Juur Sea and Margoria Sea.

- Ninesharks and Black Rusts, attracted by Lekrashan's concentrated black energy, have formed a habitat in the border between Juur Sea and Margoria Sea.

 

- Defeat Nineshark and Black Rust inhabiting the border between Juur Sea and Margoria Sea. Then Lekrashan will show itself from the depths of the ocean at a certain chance.

 

- Lekrashan is weak to external shock since it hasn't got out of the sea for a long time and focused fire will stun it.

- Up to 3 adventurers may collect loot after defeating Lekrashan.

- You may obtain junk items that can be sold for crystals or Crow Coins by defeating monsters in Lekrashan's habitat.

 

● The Old Moon Rescue Party has reported that the Goldmont Pirate has expanded their influence to Vadabin Sea near Port Ratt. The pirates are attacking the merchants that pass through the port. Hence, the Port Ratt coast guard is recruiting experienced sailors to exterminate the Goldmont Pirate.

- The Goldmont Pirate will issue an alert at a certain chance when you defeat Goldmont Pirate. Once The alert is issued, The Goldmont battleships will appear. Depending on the situation, these battleships will receive support from nearby pirate ships.

- You may obtain crafting and upgrade materials for Epheria Caravel/Epheria Galleass as loot when you defeat Goldmont Pirate.

However, many adventurers who were expecting wild battles at sea with enormous carracks have expressed their disappointment.

Here, you will feel the full power of the carracks and be rewarded for your efforts.
