NEW & IMPROVEMENTS

CONTENTS

    • Added the "Snow Build-up" UI.
  • Added the Christmas background.

 

  • Escalating tensions between Calpheon, Mediah, and Valencia have caused strife amongst the nations.

The Kalis Parliament, King Sahazad, and Neruda Shen have decreed that guilds occupying a castle in the territories mentioned above are to attack other guilds that occupy opposing territories.

Therefore, any guilds occupying Calpheon, Mediah, and Valencia will have war declared against opposing guilds by default, and will be maintained as such.

War will cease for guilds as soon as they no longer occupy Calpheon, Mediah, or Valencia.

  • Added a function to make it easier to join and promote guilds.

- Adventurers that are not in a guild can open the Guild (G) window and see a list of guilds that are currently recruiting.

 

 

- Select a guild you'd want to apply to and click the "Request to Join" button. Then you'll appear on the Recruit Guild Member tab of the guild that you applied to. 

- You can see a list of guilds you've applied to in the "View Guild Join Request" window.

 

 

- You can promote your guild in the Guild (G) window.

 

 

- Select a "type of guild" when promoting your guild.

 

 

- Check the list of Adventurers that have applied to your guild in the Guild (G) window → Recruit Guild Member tab.

 

  •  
  • Changed Olvia server and disabled "Forced PvP".
      • [ Developers' Comments ]

        This update is implemented to protect Adventurers that are not ready for PvP. Adventurers that login to Olvia server tend to be Adventurers that are still preparing for their adventure. Not only do they lack level and gear, but they also are getting used to controls and the numerous systems in the game. Olvia server was intended to be a space where new and returning Adventurers can level and settle in quickly. There are many Adventurers that are waiting for them to grow and get ready for intense fights and combat in the future. Of course, Adventurers that can login to Olvia server can still participate in PvP. They could either participate in guild wars that were declared or change to regular servers where PvP is available.

Added the "Chat Group" function so that multiple Adventurers can discuss various topics.

 

 

- Choose the group you want to discuss in according to the topics each group offers.

- A family can only participate in one group at a time.

- Check out the GM Note for more details about this function.
