MAJOR UPDATES- Naderr's Belt

● The sorceresses of Tarif, who have been studying the Black Spirit for a long time, have uncovered an ancient spell. Known as Naderr's Band, this spell allows adventurers to exchange their enhancement chance with the Black Spirit.

– You can accept the quest series Naderr's Band from the Black Spirit after reaching Lv. 58 once per family. The quest reward, Naderr's Parchment, can be used to add a slot to the band.

– You can use Naderr's Band through the Enhancement window to exchange your current character's enhancement chance for whatever enhancement chance is already stored in the band.

– Naderr's Band not only exchanges the usual enhancement chance but also Valks enhancement chance at the same time.

– Naderr's Band and any enhancement chance stored on it can be accessed by all characters in your family.

– If the enhancement chance stored in Naderr's Band is higher than 100, a 10 minute cooldown will be applied to using all slots. However, Valks enhancement chance remains unaffected.

Example) If your enhancement chance is 99, and Valks enhancement chance is 10, there will be no cooldown applied. However, if your enhancement chance is 100 and your Valks enhancement chance 0, saving your chance in a slot will apply a 10 minute cooldown.


MAJOR UPDATES- Traitors Graveyard

● Added a monster zone to Hexe Sanctuary with a recommended AP of 160.

– Traitors Graveyard was hidden in the depths of Hexe Sanctuary but was eventually discovered. Attack the Traitors Gravestones located throughout the area to attract Grudge-bearing Skeletons.

– The Grudge-bearing Skeletons will try to protect the Traitors Gravestones, and by destroying them you will also vanquish the soldiers.

– Regular Skeletons will respawn at certain intervals while a new Green Orc Skeleton Warrior will respawn every time one is defeated.

This new monster zone is set in a place with a completely different vibe from Polly's Forest with its hauntingly cute mushrooms.


MAJOR UPDATES- Revamped Quest Window

● Added a separate sub-window for main quests to the quest window that appears when you interact with a quest-giving NPC or the Black Spirit.

– This sub-window will contain quests that you can normally check under the Main tab of the Quests (O) window as well as some quests that will help with your character's growth and adventures.

– While you are interacting with a quest-giving NPC or the Black Spirit, you can press Q to check this new main quest sub-window. If you want to check other quests as well while interacting with the NPC or Black Spirit, press A.

– However, if there is no main quest to do via that NPC or the Black Spirit, if you press Q you will be directed to check out other types of quests.

– The Black Spirit quest window for non-main quests will now have the following tabs: All, Suggestions, Recurring, Event.

With this change, you will not only be able to differentiate main quests from the other quests when interacting with the Black Spirit but also when interacting with other NPCs. We hope that this will help make questing more streamlined and enjoyable, especially at the beginning of your adventures. For the future, we are planning to make the quest widgets easier to read and more customizable to your play style.


MAJOR UPDATES- Crow's Sacred Chest

● Added the new item Crow's Sacred Chest, which you can get at Crow's Nest.

– Complete the quest [Daily] [Crow Shop] Holy Trade to get the Crow's Sacred Chest.

– To do the quest [Daily] [Crow Shop] Holy Trade, you must first complete [Crow's Nest] Crow's Mercenary.






● You can now use the Return of an Archaeologist function even if you change characters or reconnect to the server within 30 minutes of using Archaeologist's Map.

● Fixed the explanatory text about resetting Black Spirit's Rage as follows.

– Equipping an Alchemy Stone or gear (excluding outfits) will reset Black Spirit's Rage.

● You can now loot Time-filled Black Stone, Refined Magical Black Stone, and Tuvala Ore at the Shultz Guard monster zone.

● Changed the quest type of [Season] Stronger Tuvala Gear from recurring to combat.

● Adjusted the Summer Season period and changed accordingly in the Black Spirit's Pass window.



● Dream of Doom I–III, Absolute: Dream of Doom: You no longer hold E during the skills to cast Crow Flare, but press E again.



● Fixed the issue where Heilang moved strangely after you used one of the Roaring skills during its cooldown while the Heilang: Berserk buff was in effect.



● Ultimate: Blitz Stab: Fixed the issue where the skill's icon appeared as if it was an icon for a Black Spirit's Rage skill.



● Absolute: Red Moon: Fixed the issue where if the skill was learned after unlocking Succession, the damage from Maehwa: Ascension to Heaven did not apply.



● Endless Explosion: Fixed the issue where the skill activated again instead of Fallout when you pressed RMB after casting the skill then Endless Fight.

- To cast Fallout after Endless Fight, press RMB.

● Increased the Central Market's max price for Red Spirit Crystal as follows.

– 66,000,000 Silver → 126,000,000 Silver

● Added Laytenn's Power Stone under the Kratuga Ancient Ruins tab in the Item Drop Information window.



● Moved certain monsters that appeared in strange parts of Cron Castle Site.

● Fixed the warning system in the Kratuga Ancient Ruins to activate correctly and the issue where the first wave of monsters appeared in the minimap but did not spawn.

● Stablized the warning system of Kratuga Ancient Ruins.

- If adventurers immediately leave the area where they've set off the Kratgua Ancient Ruins warning system, the alarms will cease instantly.

● Fixed the issue where boats in the swamps of Altinova appeared to float in mid-air.

● Fixed the issue where Ashen Plague Infected Patients were appearing at Star's End and not the Contaminated Farm during the quest [Star's End] Faded Ashen Plague.

● Fixed the issue where colliding with the Giant Soldiers near Feinia of the Forest of Seclusion looked awkward.

● Fixed the issue where the ghosts that should accompany the Mysterious Ghost in Heidel wouldn't appear in certain situations.



● Combined the Awakening and Succession quests into one questline per class.

– Once you've reached Lv. 56, open the Quest (O) window and look for the tab that says "[New Power]."

– Complete questlines under this tab by first accepting the Awakening quests. Once completed, you may proceed immediately with the Succession quests.

If you've already completed the first quest in the original Succession quest series, you may not accept the [New Power] quest series and have to continue with the original one.


● Removed the button to re-obtain Basteer gear from the Black Spirit since Basteer gear has been replaced by Naru gear as quest rewards.

● Removed the quest Adequate Preparations from appearing to adventurers who've either already accepted or completed the quest Another Way Through. This was to improve the flow of the Calpheon main quest series after the addition of the quest [Horse Emblem] Seal of the Secret Guards.

The new Skill UI is atrocious. You people should really consider reverting. The older UI was simpler and a lot easier to understand. The only benefit we got out of the new UI for Skills, was that we do not need to make a real money purchase just to change
our skill distribution - which in itself was outrageous.
