We've added new [Bonus] Alchemy quests that will randomly appear while you are performing alchemy. These Alchemy quests will offer opportunities to obtain Trace items as rewards, which are used in many Alchemy recipes but take a long time to gather. You will be able to choose what kind of Trace item you'll receive as a reward, so we hope that this will help our alchemists in procuring the alchemy materials they need. Also, you can choose to obtain additional Alchemy EXP instead of Trace items. We hope this will aid you in your path to becoming a famous alchemist!
● Changed the [Practice] Lynch Cannon so that its area of impact will be marked on the World Map (M) and in-game. The area of impact will be marked for approximately 20 seconds.

To keep with the "practice" aspect of a practice cannon, we've made it so that the area of impact is marked on the World Map. However, this feature does not apply to normal cannons.
● Increased the item count for Cargo of the Falasi Family at Port Epheria.
 

ALL CLASSES

● Fixed the issue where some Skill Enhancements were not being applied as intended.
Skill Enhancement is a system that allows Adventurers to add different effects to each skill. Currently, buff effects are applied regardless of whether or not the target blocks a hit, while debuff effects aren't applied if the target uses Guard to block a hit.
We've confirmed that some Skill Enhancement effects were not being applied in accordance with this system and have fixed this issue.
- Fixed the issue where the attacker's Skill Enhancement buffs weren't applied regardless of whether or not the attack was blocked by the target.
Buffs Fixed Effect
HP Recovery per hit target
MP/WP/SP Recovery per hit target
When the attacker uses a skill enhanced with these buffs, the skill's enhanced effect will apply regardless of whether or not the target blocks the hit
 
- Fixed the issue where an attack's Skill Enhancement debuffs were applied even though the target blocked the attack.
Debuffs Fixed Effect
PvP AP decrease, All DP decrease
All Evasion/Accuracy Rate decrease
When the attacker uses a skill enhanced with these debuffs,
the skill's enhanced effect will not be applied if the target blocks the hit.
