It is one of the pivotal, romanticized concepts in the fantasy game genre for the adventurer to obtain a "rare item" that would especially be the source of admiration and even jealousy from their peers.

Many adventurers rose to the challenge to obtain such items like Lafi Bedmountain's Compass or the Archaeologist's Map. We agree that this process itself not only gives a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment to adventurers but can also serve as one of their larger ingame goals, which led to our decision to further add such items to the game. Yet rare items are considered special due to their rarity, so we were careful in our approach, and felt that since a good portion of adventurers had obtained the aforementioned rare items from above, this was the right time to announce these new rare items.

Such items are referred to as "treasures" within the development team, and the underlying concept for these treasures was the "inexhaustible potion."

Whether it be hunting monsters or even to enjoy any kind of game content, we hope to add further symbolically meaningful and rewarding items that simply don't just offer "silver" rewards, but can serve as long-term, ingame goals as well as simply being fun items to acquire. Of course, we will attempt to curb the difficulty level accordingly as well.

  • ● Added ingredients for Ornette's and Odore's Spirit Essences in the ESC menu → Item Drop Information.
  • ● Added System messages when obtaining the ingredients for Ornette's and Odore's Spirit Essences from spoils.

- Also added System messages for when combining Ornette's or Odore's Spirit Essence.

 


MAJOR UPDATES - Ebenruth's Nol

  • ● Added the treasure item "Ebenruth's Nol" which can be installed onto the Epheria Carrack.

 

 

- Epheria Carracks that have Ebenruth's Nol installed can use BreezySail twice in a row.

- You can obtain Ebenruth's Nol by combining Ebenruth and Symbol-Engraved Nol in your Inventory (I).

- You can obtain Symbol-Engraved Nol from a Treasure Chest of a Sailor.

- You obtain Ebenruth from Processing with Oquilla's Flower x1,000 and Oquilla's Tear.

- You can purchase Oquilla's Tear from the Crow Coin shop, and you can obtain Oquilla's Flowers by chance when Bartering and from a Treasure Chest of a Sailor.

  • ● Added the Moss-Covered Map to be obtainable by low chance from defeating Saltwater Crocodiles.

- You can remove the moss from the Moss-Covered Map with Ravinia's Moss Remover, which can be purchasable from Crow Coin shops.

- You can obtain the Symbol-Engraved Nol, an ingredient to make Ebenruth's Nol, as well as other valuable items from the Treasure Chest of a Sailor.

● Added 4 new types of items only available at the Crow Coin shop.

- Ravinia's Moss Remover

- Oquilla's Flower

- Oquilla's Tear

- Ebenruth's Nol

  • ● Added Oquilla's Flower to the Bartering trade list.
  • ● Added Oquilla's Flower to be obtainable from Explore islands.
  • ● Added Oquilla's Flower to be obtainable from Exchange Lv. 3-5 sea trade goods.

When sailors first discovered the "Symbol-Engraved Nol," they regarded it as mere rocks broken from ancient ruins.

Yet one adventurer who was navigating the seas with a map discovered within the belly of a saltwater crocodile was heard to have finally have identified the truth behind this strange and mysterious fragment.

Rumor has it that this adventurer's boat was swept away by winds so strong it seemed the ship was sliding over the waters as if on ice as it disappeared into the horizon.

● If there's a change in Bartering items due to factors such as server maintenance, the Bartering Information window will reset.

If a change occurs in items related to Bartering (for example, Hakoven Island adjusting the amount of Sea Coins for Bartering, etc.), the Bartering Information in the Bartering window of the World Map (M) will be reset.
However, not everything will be reset, as Bartering Information for items that adventurers have Bartered for even once before such changes are made will be maintained.

● Added Bave Ricksa's Quest Voucher to be exchanged through Special Barter.


MAJOR UPDATES - FocusFire

  • ● Added the skill "FocusFire" to ships.

 

The current method of firing cannons is basically the longer you press the farther it shoots, yet it is rather difficult to accurately hit objects that are far away. To aim a bit more accurately and easily, we prepared the FocusFire system.

Together with a capable crew, adventurers will be able to fire their cannons and hit targets floating on unruly waves with utmost precision.

- Converting to FocusFire mode will completely change the field of vision, thus allowing for more accurate bombardment.

- You can fire faster and farther in FocusFire mode without having to necessarily hold down the LMB or RMB.

- You can use FocusFire while using other skills on your ship, except for during the Ram skill.

- You can change to the Left or Right portside with Q or E, respectively, while in FocusFire mode.

- The "Ram" skill's hotkey has been changed from "Q" to "F" accordingly.



FocusFire mode (Left)

FocusFire mode (Right)

Press Q to change to "FocusFire Mode (Left)"

Press Q once more to switch to "Basic Fire Mode"

Press Spacebar to switch to "Basic Fire Mode"

Press E to switch to "FocusFire Mode (Right)"

Use LMB to only fire the left portside cannons

"Press E to change to "FocusFire Mode (Right)"

Press E once more to switch to "Basic Fire Mode"

Press Spacebar to switch to "Basic Fire Mode"

* The follow ships can use the FocusFire skill.

- Epheria Carrack

- Epheria Caravel

- Epheria Galleass

- Improved Epheria Sailboat

- Improved Epheria Frigate

  • ● Improved the cannon reloading cooldown to apply separately for the left and right portside cannons.

- Thus, even if you've fired either the left or right portside cannons first and they're on cooldown, you can still fire the guns on the other portside.

  • ● Improved BasicFire mode to allow for both left and right portside cannons to fire simultaneously when pressing both LMB and RMB at the same time.

- However, if in FocusFire Mode, you can only fire the cannons of the portside you are currently in.

  • ● Improved to allow adventurers to leave the ship even if the cannons' reload cooldown is up.

 

NEW & IMPROVEMENTS

  • ● Added 4 new types of sailors.

- These new sailors have the Bombardment Range (Energy), Bombardment Accuracy (Focus), and Bombardment Angle (Vision) stats.
