The Current Location feature or the so-called "ping" feature, that we said we would improve was categorized into four different patterns: Attack, Moving, Command, and Warning. This change was made so that you can use the feature more efficiently. We also added images for Adventurers who have trouble distinguishing colors.
In addition to the improved "guild ping" feature, we are working on a "guild marker" feature for guilds that allows you to mark locations on the World Map. We hope this "guild marker" feature can be used in a variety of ways including marking enemies' nodes and defense points, designating attack routes for allies, and more.

▲ This is a development draft of the "guild marker" feature.
We are planning to apply the ""guild marker"" feature so that you can see it clearly on the World Map as well as the gameplay screen like the ""guild ping"" feature.
We will make our best efforts to ensure guild members can enjoy strategically coordinated guild combat together.

- Select Attack Ping
- Select Moving Ping

- Select Warning Ping
Improvements will be made to the "arrange" feature on your inventory. You can use this improved feature for your inventory as well as your storage in a variety of ways including "Auto Arrange," sorting by grade, enhancement level, weight (LT), capacity (VT), or equipped parts, as well as in "Ascending order" or "Descending order." We hope this feature gives you the flexibility you desire.
