Improved movement when equipped with the Hunting Matchlock.

- Increased movement speed when sitting and standing by 30%.

- Changed so when moving forward after switching from sitting to standing position, your character will move forward while standing up.

- Changed so you can now move when reloading from standstill position.

- Changed reloading from reloading 3 bullets at a time to reloading one bullet at a time. If interrupted during reload, the number of bullets reloaded up to that point will be preserved.

- Changed reload to allow rolling. You can roll up to the maximum number of bullets you've reloaded at a time.

- You can roll while reloading both standing and sitting.

- Improved handling mechanisms of the Hunting Matchlock.

We've focused on improving the experience of handling the matchlock, and particularly wanted to respond to players who were frustrated by how the movement in the sitting and standing positions with the matchlock felt disjointed at times. Therefore, we've made it so adventurers can now respond faster to danger in multiple scenarios while preparing for their next shot.
Ravinia's twin sister Rebinia has opened a Sea Coin shop on Lema Island.
* You can now buy special items with Sea Coins at Rebinia's shop.

※ Items with purchase limits can only be bought through Rebinia on Lema Island.

 We are slowly seeking to expand on the value of Sea Coins. The coins were limited to Great Ocean content, but it will become a more universally accepted form of currency over a broader range of content.

The recent addition of a Sea Coin shop to Lema Island is part of that example. You can now purchase various items including Manos accessories with Sea Coins. Yet, since the Sea Coin value of items may vary with their respective market prices, we've applied purchase limits to lessen the impact it will have on the market economy.

Removed Manos accessories from being exchanged for Sea Coin Coupons through Ravinia.
Changed to allow Sea Coin Coupons to be resold for Sea Coins x10.
Changed Altar of Blood to require 100% HP for entry.
