Changed how Guild Boss Subjugation works.

  • - The biggest change to Guild Boss Subjugation is that it will no longer use summoning scrolls.

Guild bosses can now be located and summoned through the Guild Boss Subjugation tab in the Guild (G) window.

 

 

As shown in the image above, "Scroll Pieces" are required to summon Guild Bosses. 

Scroll Pieces can be obtained by completing Guild Boss subjugation missions. The UI will look like the image below when enough scroll pieces are gathered.

 

 

This is what it looks like when the Guild Boss Giant Mudster is ready to be summoned. The "Find Location" and "Summon" buttons will appear when enough pieces are gathered. Click the "Find Location" button to move to where the Guild Boss can be summoned. The boss's difficulty can be selected once you arrive at the location.

Select the difficulty that best fits the guild.

 

 

There are restrictions for summoning Guild Bosses.

- Guild bosses in the Guild Boss Subjugation tab can only be summoned once a week. Each server also has a limited number of guild bosses that can be summoned on it as well.

You will be notified by a system message if the server has reached its limit on guild bosses. When you get the message, you can try again later or change servers.

- Changed the way < Eye of the Great Ocean > Khan is summoned to match the changes to Guild Boss Subjugation.

Previously, the guild had to complete guild missions to collect [Guild] Cerulean Wave Crystals, defeat Cox Pirates' Shadow Ghost to collect summon scroll pieces, then exchange the pieces to Leanar's Celestial Map.

Now, the guild only needs to complete five guild missions for the Khan Summon Scroll Pieces to be able to summon < Eye of the Great Ocean > Khan.

- The number of times the bosses were summoned and the number of scroll pieces will reset at 00:00 on the night between Sunday to Monday. So, don't forget to get together with your guild members to defeat guild boss raids before the weekend is over! Additionally, guild boss items that Adventurers own can still be used the same way as before.

The way Guild Bosses are summoned was changed in this update. The focus of this change was to make Guild Bosses more accessible.

First off, the burden of someone needing to manage items was removed. The scroll pieces obtained from guild missions will be collected automatically.

Additionally, everyone in the guild can see which guild bosses are available to be summoned and how many summons are available in the Guild window. However, guild boss summons will be limited to once per week.

 

The difficulty setting of the Guild Boss was also reworked so that it is no longer limited by the size of the guild, and it can now be selected.

Previously, “Small” guilds could only fight small bosses. Now, guilds can select the difficulty of the bosses regardless of their guild size. So, they can choose to fight stronger bosses for better rewards. You will be faced with extremely strong monsters if you raise the difficulty. For reference, “Tier 0” bosses are similar to the previous “Extra Large” bosses. The difficulty of these bosses will continue to get adjusted to be enjoyable to a variety of Adventurers.

The summoning of Khan was also significantly simplified with the rework of how guild bosses are summoned. Its requirement of at least 80 guild missions was changed to a total of 5 missions instead.

 

Added the items Breath of All Creations and Energy of All Creations. Breath of All Creations looks like its alive and breathing. Breathing it in will bring out incredible powers. The key ingredient to making this item is Energy of All Creations.

As there are four kinds of Breath of All Creations, there are four kinds of Energy of All Creations. All four Energy of All Creations can be obtained by defeating the Guild Boss Lava Chief.

Additionally, Energy of All Creations only lasts for 7 days. Once it expires, it cannot be used to synthesize. Be sure to make it into Breath of All Creations within 7 days of getting it.

 

The item Breath of All Creations can be made through Simple Alchemy. The items required to make it are listed below:

- Energy of All Creations x1

- Oil of Fortitude x20

- Mystical Spirit Powder x20

 

 

The image is showing a Breath of All Creations that has the effects "Attack Speed +20% & Casting Speed +20%". Depending on the Breath of All Creations, it can have one of the following groups of effects:

- All AP +70

- All Damage Reduction +300

- Attack/Casting Speed +20%

- Movement Speed +20%, Jump +2m, Fall Damage -50%

※ CAUTION - Take note of the following before using the item "Breath of All Creations". 

 

- The effects from Breath of All Creations last for 10 minutes and is not lost even if the character dies during that time.

Additionally, it has a 240 minute cooldown. All Breath of All Creations shares this cooldown. It is highly recommended that you only use this item when you need the effects.

 

- Breath of All Creations is similar to the item Pure Black Stone. Please note that the effects from Pure Black Stone and Breath of All Creations do not stack.

If these two items are used at the same time, then only the effects from Pure Black Stone will apply.

Make sure not to use Breath of All Creations when Pure Black Stone is still in effect.

 

- Breath of All Creations can expire like the Energy of All Creations.

Breath of All Creations expires in 14 days and cannot be used once it expires.

...a great patch! But...limited to only 5 Guild Bosses per week??? This is painful, it was one of the ONLY PvE group activities you could really do.

:(

This should be 5 per boss, 1 for Khan. And Khan should be 20 units (4x harder to activate)
