MAJOR UPDATES - Guild Boss Subjugation Combat and Loot Changes

We changed parts of the “Guild Boss Subjugation” content where Adventurers would defeat boss monsters with fellow adventurers and guild members. This change came about when we were thinking about creating a “merry gathering” where Adventurers can come together about once a week to have fun. With this update, the “Getting Ready for Guild Boss Changes!” event will begin to heighten the enjoyment of the guild boss content.
The event will include encounters with Khan, Giant Mudster, Ferrid, and Ancient Puturum. We adjusted the difficulty of the bosses so that it will be fun to do at the end of the week, and adjusted the loot dropped to share the joy with your guild members. We hope that this will help in creating fond memories together with your fellow adventurers.
With the start of the event, we will continue to create even more opportunities where you will be able to create even deeper bonds with your guild members.
(Additionally, we are preparing event guild missions to help you enjoy this guild boss changes event.)
