● The new AP and DP calibrations have been added to the Tier 1 Node War in order to introduce better combat environment.

 - Tier 1 Node can be a 'goal to achieve' for new guilds. The new max AP and DP calibrations have been added in order to make it more accessible for newer guilds. We hope this change will make Node War more exciting and fun with more involved Adventurers.

 - This new system has been first introduced in Global Lab as of February 28th, and we have divided Tier 1 Nodes into several segments. Now Tier 1 Nodes will be divided into Easy, Medium and Hard and different amount of Max AP and DP will be applied to each difficulty level.

 - The Max AP and DP restriction is applied to every PvP moves including basic attacks, normal/awakening skills and summoned creatures but not applicable to Mounts such as Horse, Elephant and Siege Weapons such as Hwacha and Cannons. Damage reduction rate will be calculated without taking in the DP calibrations into account.


※ We truly appreciate for your participation of the last Node War survey between Feb 13th to 20th. We'd like to continue to reflect Adventurers feedback in order to make better Node Wars with more fun.

 - Maximum AP and DP restriction is applied to every Adventurers within the area where Node War is in progress.
