6/7/2018 (Thu), Valencia Part Ⅱ Update!
■ New Areas in Valencia Part Ⅱ
You can explore new areas like the Aakman Temple and Roud Sulfur Mine.
They may appear similar to other areas in Valencia but you will notice some differences.
■ New PK Penalty System in the Valencian Desert
A new PK (Player Killing) penalty system will be implemented only in the Valencian Desert.
You will still get evil karma (lower than -1) penalty like you did in Balenos, Serendia, Calpheon, Mediah, and Valencia (non-desert areas), but a new system will be added to the desert areas.
You can PK all you want in the desert if you are confident enough to live out your life as an outlaw.
- New PK Penalty System and Areas
The new PK system will only apply to the desert areas in Valencia. You are in a desert area if you cannot find themselves on the World Map or if you see the desert icon on their minimap.
You will still lose karma points for attacking or killing an Adventurer. However, the death penalty for Adventurer with evil karma is completely different in the desert.
First off, when Adventurers with evil karma get killed in the desert by monsters will lose Magic Crystals and EXP but their equipment enhancement level won’t drop. Simply put, they have the same penalties as an Adventurer with positive karma.
The difference is, Adventurers with evil karma that die in the desert to other Adventurers or NPCs won’t lose Magic Crystals, EXP, or enhancement levels and always resurrect in ‘Jail’ with a debuff. The duration of the debuff depends on the Adventurer’s karma.
This makes the desert ideal for Adventurers with evil karma. The penalties applied is dependent on the location the Adventurers die in. So be careful, since all the previous death penalties will apply if the location is not considered a desert. The previous death penalties also applies in Sand Grain Bazaar, Valencia the capital, Rock Post, and other safe zones.
* Main desert areas in Valencia: Red Desert, The Great Desert of Valencia, Cantusa Desert, Northern Sand Dune, Southern Sand Dune, Crescent Shrine, Titium Valley, Desert Naga Shrine, Aakman Temple, Hystria Ruins, Roud Sulfur Mine, Pila Ku Jail
* Death Penalties for Adventures with Evil Karma
※ Trade items are randomly dropped regardless of the Adventurer’s karma.
- Villain System
If you kill an Adventurer in the desert using Forced PvP, you will be marked as a ‘Villain’ for 30 minutes. A mark with a large sword will appear next to your character name. This mark will be visible even if you are wearing a camouflage set.
You will get similar penalties to Adventurers with evil karma if you have this mark. You can get attacked by other Adventurers even if your karma is above 0.
The new PK penalties will apply to you as well if you have this mark. You will be sent to ‘Jail’ if you get killed by an Adventurer or NPC. However, you will only break Magic Crystals and lose EXP if you get killed by monsters or the environment.
This mark disappears after 30 minutes or when you get sent to jail. If you die outside of the desert then it will not disappear (Always check your karma because you will receive death penalties according to your karma if you die outside of the desert).
- Jail and Prisoner Debuff
All Adventures with evil karma that die are sent to jail if they get killed by an Adventurer or NPC in the desert. The prison debuff lasts for 30/50/60 minutes depending on the character’s karma.
There are the restrictions during the debuff duration:
- Cannot use all fighting actions, Movement Speed reduced by 50%, cannot call mounts, cannot use ‘Escape’ on the ESC menu.
Additionally, you won’t be penalized and can only resurrect in jail if you get killed by other Adventurers or NPCs while you are in jail. Please note that you will not be able to enter or use Red Battlefield, 3:3 Arena, Horse Racing, Guild ‘Command to Gather’, Guild ‘Create Outpost’, Horse Flute, and others.
Therefore, it’s best to get out of jail as soon as possible to remove the Prisoner debuff. There are two ways for you to get out.
There are NPCs placed at the entrance and exit of the jail. There are also warder NPCs that watch and attack prisoners. You can either get the quest from the NPC by the entrance and complete it to remove the debuff or escape through the exit by sneaking past the NPCs.
You cannot escape through the exit if you have the quest active. Either complete or give up the quest before attempting to escape.
Once you get out of jail, if you have 0 or more karma points then you will be moved to Ibellab Oasis. If you have -1 or lower karma then you will be moved to Muiquun, the town of outlaws.
- The Town of Outlaws - Muiquun
Muiquun is a town for Adventurers with evil karma and outlaws gather here.
Only characters with -1 karma or lower can talk to NPCs in this town. The Muiquun Town Guard NPC will attack characters with 0 or higher karma.
Muiquun is the only place in Valencia that is a desert and a safe zone. Therefore, there is no penalty when you die here. All Adventurers with evil karma will resurrect at Muiquun if they select ‘Resurrect in Town’ when they die to monsters or the environment in a desert.
Adventurers with evil karma cannot fight off Adventurers with positive karma (0 or more karma). However, Adventurers with positive karma cannot attack Adventurers with evil karma during the in-game night time.
- Additional Conditions for the New PK Penalty System
Adventurers with evil karma can attack other Adventurers with evil karma in desert areas. Their karma do not drop when they kill another Adventurer with evil karma, but the killed Adventurer will be sent to jail.
Adventurers with evil karma will not receive the any penalties if they die in Conquest War, Node War, Red Battlefield, Final Battle, Arena, and others. However, they can still get the regular death penalties if they are not in the Conquest War server or if it isn’t time for Conquest War and outside of the desert areas.
* Note - The area around Valencia Castle that’s in the Valencia Conquest War is not a desert area!
If an Adventurer with evil karma is a member of a guild and gets killed or kills a member of a hostile guild that they are at war with in a desert area, then they receive no penalties. However, if they will become villains if they force PvP to attack or kill a member of the hostile guild that is under protection.
Adventurers with positive karma still can defend themselves against Adventurers with evil karma. Adventurers with positive karma can always attack Adventurers with evil karma regardless of location without receiving any penalties.
