|  MONSTER

  • Fixed the issue where the berserk effect would disappear when the world boss Ancient Kutum used an attack where it went underground.
  • Fixed the issue where the world boss Ancient Kutum would not disappear 30 minutes after its initial appearance.
  • The security system around certain areas of Kratuga Ancient Ruins was changed.
  • Kratuga Ancient Ruins was a hunting ground prepared for Adventurers with around 250 AP. There were certain monsters that needed more focus to defeat mixed in with a security system, and other factors to keep Adventurers active while in combat. However, we have received a lot of feedback that the event (security system) is difficult to complete, so its difficulty was adjusted to make it more appropriate for the intended group of Adventurers.

    - The monsters that appears once the security system activates were changed to appear as named monsters on the minimap.

    - The time limit for level 1 security was extended from 1 minute to 2 minutes.

     - Belloten and Elqueesh that appear at level 2 security have their HP reduced by 50%.

     - Belloten and Elqueesh that appear at level 2 security have their AP increased by 16%.

     - Belloten and Elqueesh that appear at level 2 security have their DP reduced by 20%.

     - A message will be displayed when the security system event ends.

  • ● Adjusted the amount of Skill EXP you gain from defeating monsters in following regions in Valencia, Kamasylvia, and Drieghan.

- Cadry Ruins / Crescent Shrine / Aakman / Hystria - Skill EXP Gain +10%

- Basilisk Den / Taphtar Plain / Manshaum Forest / Star's End - Skill EXP Gain +20%

- Pila Ku Jail / Roud Sulfur Mine / Tooth Fairy Forest / Blood Wolf Settlement / Sherekhan Necropolis (Daytime) - Skill EXP Gain +30%

- Sherekhan Necropolis (Nighttime) - Skill EXP Gain +50%

 We have been adding updates to help lift the burden of leveling. There were updates that lowered the level requirements on combat skills, improved quest rewards, and others. We also improved the different methods for leveling. On the other hand, Skill EXP was left untouched.

This was because we wanted Adventurers learn and familiarize themselves with the skills they learned. The thought at the time was that the amount of Skill EXP given matched this pace. However, the difference between the difficulty of obtaining combat and skill EXP became apparent. This naturally became a point of concern as the number of Adventurer feedback asking us to make changes that will make it easier for them to obtain Skill EXP. The addition of the area in Crescent Shrine where the “Possessed by Darkness” monsters dwell was a part of the solution for this specific problem.

So, we have decided to increase the amount of Skill EXP obtainable in these areas (especially in areas where the number of monsters are low). We will continue to monitor this situation closely and carefully plan out the next steps.
