MAJOR UPDATES - Yolunakea Solo Mode

As a continuation of solo-able Atoraxxion dungeons, Yolunakea now joins Vahmalkea and Sycrakea as content Adventurers can enjoy the story of at their own pace via Solo mode.

We were happy to hear positive feedback from Adventurers on the Solo mode update for Vahmalkea and Sycrakea.
The Solo mode for Yolunakea is just like the other solo adventures, where the difficulty has been adjusted so that Adventurers can complete the main quest on their own, so we look forward to seeing your continuous love and support for Atoraxxion and its stories.

※ Please note that in areas where you must proceed via mount, you will be able to select the mount of your choice in [Solo] Yolunakea.

◆ Added a "Solo" mode so players have the option to proceed with Atoraxxion: Yolunakea's main quests alone rather than with a party of 5.
◇ You can begin your solo adventure by pressing the "Enter Solo Mode" button upon entering Atoraxxion via the Sol Magia at the Ancient Stone Chamber.
※ [Solo] Atoraxxion: Yolunakea has been designed so that you can complete the main quest alone, just like Vahmalkea and Sycrakea.


MAJOR UPDATES - Guild-only Khan Expedition Region

Teamwork within a Guild is vital to taking down Khan, the Guild Boss known as the ""Eye of the Great Ocean,"" so we have created Guild Expedition Regions where guild members can fully focus their attention on coordinating their assault.

You can freely enter and exit the Guild's Expedition Region, however the instance will only remain open for a limited time. So we suggest purchasing a Monsterbane Cannon or designate a ""Seaweed-purging troop” prior to its creation. Please note that after entering, you can summon the Guild Boss by pressing the Summon button via the Guild window.

◆ Added a Guild's Expedition Region for Guild Boss Khan.
◇ Changed so Guild Boss Khan can only be summoned in the Guild's Expedition Region.

◇ Guild Masters or Advisors can open the Guild Boss UI from "Oquilla's Eye" to enter and create the Guild's Expedition Region instance.
◇ A guild's Expedition Region instance will last for 1 hour.
- Other guild members near the Guild's Expedition Region can also enter the instance.
- Only allied guild members and War Heroes may enter a guild's Expedition Region instance.
- Once the Expedition Region instance expires, all characters within will be moved outside of the instance.

[How to Create the Instance]
- You must be a Guild Master or Guild Advisors. (Edited)
- You cannot be on a Node, Conquest, or Arsha server.

[Access Unavailable for the Following]
- You cannot enter if you have Forced PvP (Alt+C) active.
- You cannot enter if you have hit or killed another Adventurer with Forced PvP active.
* However, you can enter if negative Karma or are a Fugitive.
- You cannot enter if you are in a duel.
- If you are mounted.
- If your character is not idle.
- If you're not in a "normal" zone (e.g. Elvia Realm, etc.).



Core: Infernal Destruction
◆ Fixed the issue of not being able to combo attack 1 with Savage Somersault after learning this skill.

Core: Spear Bolt
◆ Fixed the issue where, prior to obtaining the core skill, combo transitions were slow for certain skills upon inflicting dash attack damage.



Cartian Spells
◆ Improved the method for summoning with Cartian Spells as follows:

Before After
Monster will spawn when the party leader uses the summon scroll at a designated spot
Only the party leader can obtain quest rewards.
Party members can obtain rewards.
Summon and talk to the NPC Faded Ancient Relic at a designated spot via the UI.
Register the number of summon scrolls according to the stage that the party leader desires.
All party members have to register the same amount of summon scrolls.
The party leader and all party members can obtain rewards.

※ Methods from "before" still available!
◇ You can still use the previous method of summoning a boss by using a summon scroll.
◇ Monsters that can be summoned through the "Faded Ancient Relic" NPC are divided into 5 stages. The recommended number of Cartian Spells per stage and AP are as follows:
Stage Number of Scrolls AP
1 1 per party member At least 150
Co-op recommended
2 2 per party member At least 190
Co-op recommended
3 3 per party member At least 220
Co-op recommended
4 4 per party member At least 240
Co-op recommended
5 5 per party member At least 260
Co-op recommended
◇ Regardless of the number of party members, the boss's difficulty and rewards will differ according to the number of summon scrolls registered by an individual, so it is highly recommended to use the Cartian Spells together in a party.
- The higher the stage, the stronger the enemy that will appear, but also the greater rewards.
◇ With such improvements to the Cartian Spell, we've also added a low chance for [Drawn to the Ancient relic] monsters who bear special loot to spawn.
- Defeating these monsters will earn you additional rewards.
