      • Only season characters in normal servers can use the Honorable Adventurer’s Certificate.
      • Please note that once Honorable Adventurer’s Certificate is used, your season character will be converted to a normal character and you will no longer be able to receive season server benefits.
    • Once you convert your season character to a normal character, you will receive “Gift Box Full of Memories” as a reward.
    • Complete the quest “[Season Server Graduation] Into the Big Wide World” to receive the summer season completion rewards “Gift Box Full of Memories” and “[Season] Tuvala Conversion Stone Box.”

    • You can use only one Tuvala conversion stone for each gear part, so you must be careful to ensure that the stone is used for a gear at its highest enhancement level.
  • How to Convert a Tuvala Gear to a Boss Gear
    • You first need to use the Tuvala conversion stone and convert a Tuvala gear to a normal gear before you can convert it to a boss gear.
    • After converting the Tuvala gear to normal gear, find Fughar and accept either the quest “[Season] Even Sharper Weapon” or the quest “[Season] Even Sturdier Armor,” depending on the boss gear you wish to obtain.
    • However, you can only obtain a boss gear with a Tuvala gear of PRI (I), DUO (II), TRI (III), TET (IV), or PEN (V) enhancement level.
    • Set effects will be applied when equipping Tuvala gear converted to normal gear, Tuvala gear converted to boss gear, or boss gear.

    • You can exchange the Season Special Gift Exchange Coupon for PEN (V) Capotia Ring or Earring by using the Season Special Gift feature available from Fughar.
  • Until August 26 (before maintenance) you will be able to continue enjoying the adventurers in the season servers if you do not receive any Season Server Graduation quests.
  • You can still do Fughar’s quests for a certain period of time even after the summer season has ended with the August 26 (Wednesday) maintenance.
  • Summer Season concludes on August 26 and any unconverted Season Characters will be converted into regular characters automatically in this maintenance.

Major Update: Instant Entry into the Pit of the Undying

The Pit of the Undying was well received by many of you thanks to its uniquely tactic-based PvE content. Yet, we heard that its remote location in the game made it hard to fully enjoy its contents. Therefore, we have added a function that allows instant entrance to the Pit of the Undying so that it is easier to access.

We hope that you can now pop into the Pit of the Undying once a day and enjoy facing off against different challenging monsters.

  • Added a function to instantly enter the Pit of the Undying where you can compete against the First Crow’s finest warriors in an endless battle for glory.
    • While in Velia or Crow’s Nest, you can instantly enter and exit the arena by pressing the button for the Pit of the Undying in the ESC menu after completing the quest [Crow’s Nest] Crow’s Mercenary. After completing the quest, you can only access the Pit of the Undying via that button.
    • If you haven’t completed [Crow’s Nest] Crow’s Mercenary, speak to NPC Lavala to enter the Pit of the Undying.
    • You cannot create or leave parties at the Pit of the Undying.

    • To exchange your Seal of the Undying via Patrigio you need to leave the Pit of the Undying and go to Crow’s Nest.
  • Changed the [Daily] To the Pit of the Undying quests to now only be accepted and completed by talking to NPC Randy instead of Lavala.
  • The cooldown for switching servers will now be applied separately for season servers and non-season servers.
  • Fixed the issue where the buttons for completing the quests [Enhancement] Even Finer Tuvala Shuriken I and [Enhancement] Even Finer Tuvala Shuriken II did not appear when interacting with NPC Fughar if a PEN Tuvala Shuriken was equipped or in your inventory.
  • The ships of adventurers with negative karma will now glow red.
  • You can now open and close the cabin doors of an Epheria Carrack while sailing.
    • However, you cannot open or close the cabin doors when the ship is auto-navigating, using sailing skills, or when the ship’s durability is below 50%.
