MAJOR UPDATES - Revamped Rich Merchant's Ring

        Revamped the Rich Merchant's Ring. This ring is the most precious treasure known to marketplace directors all across the continent, because it is the legacy of Al Yurad, the most respected figure in all of Valencian trade history.             


We've revamped the Rich Merchant's Ring. 

We hope it becomes a must-have item treasured by adventurers Just like the Archaeologist's Map or Lafi Bedmountain's Upgraded Compass.             

The existing Rich Merchant's Ring (pre-Central Market) had an exceptionally beneficial effect, and was accordingly quite difficult to obtain, so along with revamping its effects we went about adjusting the difficulty befitting to the new iteration as well.             

We preserved the existing method of obtaining the item, but added additional routes to obtain the pieces.             


Also, we made the 5% Market Tax Reduction effect specific only to the Rich Merchant's Ring, found nowhere else ingame. 

The Rich Merchant's Ring may or may not have a major role in the adventurer's experience depending on their playstyle. However, to make sure no one feels left out, we opened up an extra opportunity so that adventurers without the ring can also benefit from its effects through the market benefit coupon.          

- Now the Rich Merchant's Ring will apply an effect that increases market silver collection (tax reduction) instead of increasing marketplace bidding chance.             


- Using the ring will apply the effect permanently onto your Family. You can check the applied effect in the Central Market window. The Rich Merchant's Ring won't disappear after use.             

  • Sightings of the Merchant Prince's Ring Pieces have been reported all over the continent. One adventurer has compiled all of those reports into the following clues.             



- The Fourth Piece will be available with the O'dyllita update.             

  • To motivate adventurers seeking the Rich Merchant's Ring, market directors from all over the continent have joined with the Old Moon Guild to create the Old Moon Trade Pass.             

Bring a Shimmering Piece of the Old Moon to Chloe, the resident prankster of the Old Moon Guild, who will exchange it for the Old Moon Trade Pass.             

You can obtain Shimmering Piece of the Old Moon through various means.             

  • The Old Moon Trade Pass shares the same effect with the Rich Merchant's Ring, but its effect will only last one use.             

- Using the Old Moon Trade Pass will consume it, and you can confirm its effects on the Central Market window. Its effect will be applied when selling an item.             

- The Old Moon Trade Pass effect can be applied to one item, including cases when the same item is sold in a stack. The effect will be applied even if you use the Partial Collect function. However, withdrawing listed items will negate the effect and it will be gone.             

  • Added an icon on the lower left-hand side of the Central Market window to appear when the Rich Merchant's Ring is in effect.             




    • Revamped the Skill (K) window.

We've revamped the skill window with a new UI. We combined each skill's levels together to present each class' skills in a more intuitive structure, and added the Skill Present function you can use to save skill configurations before making any changes. Skill Presets even saves Skill Add-On settings, and completing Succession and Awakening quests will award one preset slot each, while completing Talent and Ascension quests will award two preset slots each. This means there is a maximum of two preset slots available per class. 


This new skill window is quite a big change from the previous version, and we fear you might find it awkward. Please share your feedback with us so we can find ways to make any improvements, if needed."    


- You can view skill demos whenever You wish in the new skill window. Select the skill on the right, which will display the skill demo on the left along with detailed skill descriptions. Of course, You could always hover your mouse over the skill icon to read the text bubble with the skill description.             

- You can toggle on/off skill demos with the button on the lower side of the skill window.             



- Succession and Awakening skills can be accessed from the top right of the skill window once your character has completed their Succession or Awakening quests.             

- Main Weapon skills have been divided into Main skills, Secondary skills and Passive Skills.        



- Click each tab to see the skills in each category.

- Skills are also divided into Main Weapon, Awakening Weapon and skill Enhancement categories.




- Press LMB on a specific skill icon to learn the skill. Hold Shift + LMB on a skill icon to learn the maximum level of that skill available to you.

- Characters Lv. 56 and lower can freely reset all of their skill points via Reset All Skills. Right-click the skill icon to reset each individual skill, and holding down Shift while left-clicking the icon will reset the skill to its lowest level.



- Use the Toggle Black Spirit's Rage button to toggle Black Spirit's Rage skills.             

- Use the Cooldown Settings button to set how your skills' cooldowns will be displayed.        


  • Added the Skill Preset function.             

- Skill Presets save all currently learned skills and skill Add-ons which You can bring back when You need.             

- You can save Skill Preset anytime, but to load Skill Preset you will either need a Secret Book of Old Moon and be in a Safe Zone, or go find a skill instructor.             



※ Using a Secret Book of Old Moon to load previously saved Skill Presets will lock you to a 1 hour cooldown, while talking to a skill instructor only has a 10 minute cooldown.             

- You can obtain one skill Preset Coupon For each time you complete your class Awakening and Succession quests.           



※ You will get two Skill Preset Expansion Coupons when you complete a series of Talent or Ascension quests.             

- Characters that have already completed their respective Awakening, Succession, Talent, or Ascension quests series can talk to the Black Spirit to obtain the coupons via the [Skill Preset Coupon] quests.             

- When loading a Skill Preset, your character will act out differently according to their class.             

- You can reset your skills without the Secret Book of Old Moon or Armstrong's Skill Guide via the notification window which pops up regarding skill reset upon saving or loading Skill Presets.

- You cannot use the Skill Preset function if you do not reset your skills, so make sure to reset your skills in the notification window.
