MAJOR UPDATES - Yolunakea 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
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.
- 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.).
