[Announcement on Weapon Exchange Coupons]

The items with identical grade and name which can be exchanged using the Weapon Exchange Coupon will now have identical prices, by averaging out the price difference between the most and least expensive items in current Central Market.

During the maintenance of May 8th, we implemented purchase limit on the Weapon Exchange Coupon to once per Family. This was implemented as a countermeasure against those who attempt to make great profit quickly by taking advantage of the liquidity of the Central Market with the Weapon Exchange Coupon.

As a result, this type of market manipulation has harmed the way the market is meant to be used. First of all, we would like to sincerely apologize for not foreseeing the negative effects of lifting the Weapon Exchange Coupon purchase limitations.

Also, in addition to allowing all adventurers to freely use the Weapon Exchange Coupon like before, we are planning on implementing the below actions to fundamentally prevent the abuse of the Weapon Exchange Coupon.

The prices of the items which are exchangeable with the Weapon Exchange Coupon will be priced at the same level. The unified prices will be based on the average of the current items of the identical grade and name at the Central Market. The one time per Family purchase limit on the Weapon Exchange Coupon will be removed.

We will be more careful going forward and will try our best to prevent these types of issues. Thank You.

  • The one time per Family purchase restrictions for the Weapon Exchange Coupon will be removed after the maintenance on May 22nd.
  • The set prices for the Main/Sub/Awakening weapons at the Central Market will now be adjusted together.
    • Ex) The set prices for the equipment with the same type such as Azwell Longsword, Staff, and Kriegsmesser will be adjusted together.
    • Ex) The set prices for the equipment of the same grades will be adjusted together (Kite Shield, Parrying Dagger, etc.)
  • You can now register green grade items of certain enhancement levels at the Central Market, after you obtain them while defeating monsters in a party.
  • The quantity displayed on the top right of the Sell window’s “Sell” button, and on the top right of the Status window’s “Items Listed” button at the Central Market will now display the proper amount.
  • Fixed the issue where the character would fall in certain areas of the Manshaum Forest.
  • Fixed the issue where characters were unable to go up a ladder at the roads of the Eastern Border.
  • Fixed an issue where the sound volume would change to 0 when you exited a dungeon in the “The Ritual” quest (Calpheon main quest) while a cut scene was playing.
  • We are aware of the graphical issue where the NPC Center of the Ruins is not being properly displayed while progressing through the quest The God of the Protties. We apologize for the inconvenience. This issue will be resolved next maintenance.
  • We are aware of the graphical issue where the motion of receiving damage from the skill Dragon’s Rip of Mystic while the character is jumping appears abnormal. This will be resolved soon.
  • We are aware of the issue where you can not check the Level and Special skill of a Fairy or Pet taken out after reconnecting to game client.
    • This can be resolved by checking in and taking out your Pet or unsummoning and summoning Fairy again for the time being.
