A Party Matching feature specific to Atoraxxion has been added. You can now use this exclusive feature to be matched with a party of other Adventurers queued for the dungeon. However, we have prioritized this feature to only be available for Normal difficulty for now so that Adventurers can grasp the dungeon's strategic gameplay before testing their mettle on Elvia difficulty. It's not a large feature, but we hope it will add greater convenience for those Adventurers seeking to challenge Atoraxxion.

※ Your character has to have at least 220 AP and 270 DP for Atoraxxion party matching.

◆ You can now form parties and use party chat with Adventurers in other servers.
◇ Adventurers in other servers will be grayed out in the party UI and will display the name of their current server.
◇ Adventurers in a party that have disconnected or moved to the Character Selection screen will be displayed as "Offline".
