Critical hit rate +30% on hits
(PvE Only)
Ranger's Awakening skills are, for the most part, powerful, but they were also designed with long cooldowns. As a result, many Adventurers would rely on main weapon skills instead of Awakening skills when fighting monsters that required continuous damage dealt over time. To improve on this, we adjusted the PvE damage of her Awakening skills so that Ranger could continuously deal damage in hunting grounds with her combos.
 
 
● Scythe Training - Fixed the issue where Flow: Soul Reaper would activate first instead of the skill when used laterally after certain skills.
● Rushing Crow - Fixed the issue where using the skill from a high place wouldn't display the falling animation.
● Flow: Rushing Crow - Fixed the issue where using the skill from a low place would display the falling animation.

● Prime: Trample - Improved the skill to evenly deal damage within the adjusted area of effect.
● Prime: Jolt Wave - Improved the skill to evenly deal damage within the adjusted area of effect.

Many Adventurers who play Succession Tamers use Prime: Whiplash as their main skill, so we tried to improve Prime: Bolt Wave and Prime: Jolt Wave so the two skills can be used in addition to Prime: Whiplash, thereby creating a richer and more diverse PvE gameplay experience.

 


WITCH, WIZARD

● Fixed the issue where using a skill to switch from Main Weapon to Awakening stance wouldn't let you use Awakening skills in certain situations.
 
 
Succession

● Prime: Sea Tornado - Increased the PvE damage by 36% when used on cooldown.
- PvP damage remains the same
Most Adventurers playing Succession Musa tend to use Prime: Sea Tornado repetitively in hunting grounds, which may feel a bit boring to play. Hence, we adjusted Prime: Gale's damage and critical hit rate buff in PvE to address this, and improved the Serene Mind effects you gain from Prime: Carver and Prime: Divider.
 
Awakening
● Changed the PvE damage for the following skills.
- PvP damage remains the same.

● Eradicate - Removed details on comboing into Flow: Nemesis Slash from the skill's description.
● Counter Assassination - Fixed the issue where the skill dealt higher damage than displayed. (PvP damage remains the same)
We changed the PvE damage and number of hits for Awakening skills like Crust Crusher and Flow: Foul Play, which are the representative skills for Awakening Musa in general. Now Crust Crusher and Flow: Foul Play are stronger than ever, and you can fill the gaps when they're on cooldown with Projection and Flow: Extra Credit.

Skill Name Before After
Chain Crash: Sah Chakram 1254% x 9 1312% x 9
● Chain Crash: Sah Chakram - Added Critical Hit Damage +5% for 10 sec to the skill.

Awakening Kunoichi often ends up behind a monster after using her Main Weapon skills, which makes it inconvenient to switch back to Awakening. To alleviate this, we added the "no collision while moving" effect to Half Moon Slash so that Kunoichi could easily attack from behind while in Awakening stance. We also increased the PvE damage for her skills other than Lethal Spin Spree so that you could continuously deal damage even when Lethal Spin Spree wasn't available.

● Prime: Rage Hammer - Added a Critical Hit Rate +50% effect for PvE only.
● Prime: Roaring Tiger - Added a Critical Hit Rate +25% effect for PvE only.
Succession Mystic is excellent at combo attacks, but her PvE damage for single skills were lacking in comparison to other classes. To compensate for this, we increased the PvE damage and Critical Hit Rate effects for some Succession skills including Prime: Thunder Pound, Prime: Tornado Kick, and Prime: Rage Hammer.

● Prime: Kamasylvia Slash III - Added a Critical Hit Rate +25% effect for PvE only.
We increased the PvE damage of Prime: Spirit Legacy and increased the PvE damage, number of hits, and critical hit rate for her other key Succession skills to be similar to her Awakening. This will enable Succession Dark Knight to take full advantage of her slow but powerful skills.
Awakening
● Core: Spirit Hunt - Fixed the issue where the regular version of Spirit Hunt would activate when used in a combo after certain skills.

We improved her PvE efficiency without largely altering her Awakening skill mechanics by increasing the PvE damage of Seed of Catastrophe, Shattering Darkness, and the skills that combo from them. We also increased the damage of Unveiled Fate to increase its usefulness in Rabam skills.
 
 
● Black Blood's Descent - Fixed the issue where main weapon skills would not activate when the skill is used via Quick Slot while in awakening stance.
 
 
● Quoratum's Protection - Fixed the issue where the Forward Guard effect would disappear when using Icy Fog after using certain skills while the skill is active.
● Fixed the issue where certain commands were displayed incorrectly in the skill combo guide.
 
 
 
● Kyve Mastery - Fixed the issue where he would recover MP even when the skill missed.
● Prime: Ator's Mark - Fixed the issue where the Overdrive buff would not apply when using this skill with another skill.
● Fixed the issue where the Kyve would be in an awkward location when attempting to transfer Black Spirit's Rage.
● Added Sage combo guides.
● Fixed the issue where some sound effects were being omitted when Sage attacked with his barehands.
● Fixed the issue where the damage dealt by Sage would be abnormally low in Node/Conquest Wars.
 

ITEM

● Added the explanation "Equipping the Snowflake Suit or Snowflake Dress will make your Main Weapon and Awakening Weapon invisible in standby" in the item descriptions of Snowflake Suits, Snowflake Dresses, and Snowflake Outfit Set boxes for certain classes.
● Revised the item descriptions of [Sage] Royal Enforcer Outfit Set B and [Sage] Royal Enforcer Helmet B.


MONSTER

● The Vessel of Inquisition, emanating the scent of death, has been discovered in a part of Star's End where adventurers rarely set foot. The rotting stench of Blackstar from the Vessel of Inquisition envelopes all of Star's End, making Kzarka's apostles willingly sacrifice themselves as offerings.
- Changed the locations of some Star's End monsters.
- Placed a total of three Vessels of Inquisition around the edges of Star's End.
- Strike the Vessel of Inquisition to call forth Kzarka's apostles, who covet the energy contained within it.
- The apostles will attack the Vessel of Inquisition to obtain the energy spilling out from the fragment of the Blackstar. They will disperse once the Vessel of Inquisition is destroyed.
- The apostles coveting the power within the Vessel of Inquisition are stronger than previous Star's End monsters.
- The Vessel of Inquisition will shatter if too many apostles coveting its power gather.

 Star's End is the most popular hunting ground for Adventurers. Therefore, we added a new mechanic so that Star's End could be enjoyed by even more Adventurers (those of you who have been to Traitor's Graveyard in Marie Cave may find this mechanic familiar). However, be warned. The apostles coveting the power within the Vessels of Inquisition are stronger than the regular monsters in Star's End.
 

NPC, BACKGROUND, SOUND

● Added camera effects when talking to Miles, the Stable Keeper at the Old Moon Grand Prix.
● Removed the cherry blossoms that were added to welcome spring as the event period ended.
 

UI

● Adjusted new gamepad mode so that you can now view Warehouse from Storage.
● Revised the end date text in the Guild Equipment Rental Storage as the Guild Equipment Rental Event was extended by two weeks.
● Added the navigation function to the Fishing UI where you can click the Black Spirit icon to display the route to the fishing event location.
 

SYSTEM

● Improved the weather transition in Elvia Realm hunting grounds so that it would look more natural when entering and leaving the hunting grounds.
● The NEW Olvia (Novice only) server was changed to Serendia-2.
After the Elvia update, we thought that the sudden change in weather that occurs when entering the Hadum-tainted Elvia Realm looked unnatural and strenuous on the eyes. The weather transition was changed to more natural in order to create a more immersive gameplay experience.

Pearl Shop

● Added the line Similar or identical products may be released in the future. in the descriptions of products sold in the Pearl Shop (F3).
-However, this line will not be displayed for products that are not scheduled to be released again in the future.
● Fixed the issue where the awakening weapons would show then disappear when clicking rapidly between outfits in combat stance.


Web

- 'Howling Dead Man's Chest' was changed to Box of the Howling Dead.
- [Ranger] Le Vladian (No Stockings) was changed to [Ranger] Le Vladian Underwear (No Stockings)
- [Sorceress] Le Vladian (No Stockings) was changed to [Sorceress] Le Vladian Underwear (No Stockings)

Changes and Fixes

● Fixed the issue where the wrong event period was displayed for the quest "[Event] The Best Donkey Trainer."
● Fixed the issue where the questline "[Winter Season] An Unsettling Rumor," that gives Season Special Rewards for characters were automatically converted to normal characters after the winter season, and the questline "[Getting Settled] Adjusting to the World," which helps adventurers get settled, were not displayed in the Suggested quest list.
● Fixed the issue where searching for "All" in the Pearl Shop would display blanks in the results.
● Fixed the issue where the camera angle would appear abnormal when summoning the Black Spirit while on horseback.
● Fixed the issue where the notice displayed when making a purchase from the Pearl Shop would cover the Outfit Slot icons.
● Fixed the issue where the zoom function would not work when selecting Sage outfits other than the main weapon and sub-weapon in the Pearl Shop (F3).
