Arduanatt reigns over the skies, Diné rides the desert dunes, and Doom conquers on land. The beauty and power of these dream horses, especially their unique skills, have been longed by many adventurers over the years. However, over the years, many adventurers have been able to tame them and a greater number of adventurers have sought for a new type of dream horse. Thus, we present before you a dream horse of even greater magnitude in both power and beauty. We hope this provides a new goal for adventurers who enjoy horse training and dream horse content. We particularly hope this is also a more meaningful endeavor for those high-leveled trainers as well. While we only have the Mythical Arduanatt to show for today, we are currently preparing to release an upgraded Diné and Doom as well.

  • Revamped Black Spirit’s Adventure
    • Now you will roll not 1 but 2 dice, and their sum will determine how many spaces the Black Spirit moves forward.
    • Use the “Acquire” button on the lower portion of Black Spirit’s Adventure to obtain Black Spirit’s Dice.
    • You will gain an extra pair of dice every 30 minutes, up to 3 times a day.
    • Getting the same number on the dice will automatically grant you another roll.
      * However, an extra roll will not be granted if you land on a bonus square or the finish line, or if you roll the same number on both dice for the second time.
    • Your Black Spirit piece will change appearance every 10th round completed.


Black Spirit’s Adventure is one of our most beloved contents. We chose to revamp it by retaining much of the accessibility in its original variation, while adding some strategic elements to spice up the fun.

  • Added the Naval Fame system.
    • Naval Fame is shared by family, and measures the adventurer’s Karma at sea.
    • Naval Fame begins at 0, can be restored up to 300,000, or fall to -1,000,000.
    • If your Naval Fame is greater than 0, you’ll become a “Navy”, and if lower than 0, a “Pirate.”
    • While in pirate status, your ship will be marked in red, allowing you to be attacked by the ships of adventurers without activating PvP mode.
    • Each time you force PvP by attacking an adventurer, your first attack will reduce your Naval Fame by -50,000.
    • You can no longer ride the Guild Galley if your Naval Fame is in pirate mode.
    • Destroying a ship reduces your Naval Fame by -200,000.
    • The act of defeating an adventurer, after destroying a ship, will reduce your Karma not Naval Fame.
    • While in pirate status, you won’t be able to interact with, repair or supply your ship through normal wharf managers. You will only be able to repair and resupply your ship through Gafur, the wharf manager of the pirate-ridden Kuit Islands.
    • You can restore your Naval Fame by defeating Sea Creatures.
    • Your Naval Fame is affected by Guild Skills, Pet Skills, Tear of Repentance, and other Karma Recovery effects. However, your Naval Fame is not affected by the Book of Repentance.


The Naval Fame system has been added as a new content. This will serve as the foundation for our pirates and bounty hunting system. Defeating sea creatures will increase your Naval Fame, while attacking other adventurers and their ships as a pirate will reduce your Naval Fame. If your Naval Fame is below 0, you will be severely limited in your access to sea-related content. Also, please note that Naval Fame is applied to your entire family. We are currently preparing future contents so that different roles can be played by adventurers in Naval Fame without being unfair to one particular side over the other.

  • Added Ancient Spirit Dust x50 to the “Victory at Red Battlefield!” quest rewards.
  • Increased the number of Red Seals obtainable from losing in the Red Battlefield to 2 seals.
  • Changes to Node/Conquest Wars, boss spawns, and Tribute Wagon departure time have been reflected so please follow the start and closing times of the local time for the EU servers accordingly.
    • Node War: 20:00 CET–22:00 CET
    • Conquest War: 20:00 CET–24:00 CET
    • Tribute Wagon Departure 18:00 CET
    • Please note Daylight saving time 2020 for North America will end at 02:00 local standard time on Sunday, 1st of November. However the necessary changes to Node/Conquest Wars, world boss spawns, and Tribute Wagon departure times for NA servers will take into effect starting with November 4th regular maintenance. (Please mind that Node Wars and boss spawns will appear to occur 1 hours early during Nov. 1 to Nov. 4 maintenance).


  • Renewed the design of the Settings window that appears when you create a character and log in at the start of the game.



  • Taya, the Old Moon Manager of Duvencrune, now rents out the Old Moon Fence.
  • Old Moon Manager Mene has come to O’draxxia following the Kalicha Merchant Guild.
  • Moved the sailors waiting for their captains at the tavern in Velia so that they wouldn’t interfere with the tavern business.

We’ve improved the skill add-ons for each class. Previously, you chose 2 out of 6 given add-ons and added them to your character’s skills, but now you can choose the add-ons you want from 24 add-ons (shared across all classes). The limitations of the previous system led adventurers to approach the add-ons as if there was a correct formula to use them, but with this renewal, we hope that adventurers will be more experimental in their customizations of their skill add-ons according to their play style. Also, before we had grouped our skill add-on effects into 5 levels (for example, the amount of Monster AP increased differed depending on the skill) based on the skill’s cooldown time and utility, but now we’ve reduced it to 3 levels in order to increase their utility. Additionally, we’ve made adjustments based on adventurer opinions on how the skill add-on effects were being applied to all hits for certain skills.

  • Fixed the issue where the target of a successful grab skill would sometimes display irregular movements.


[By Class]


  • Night Crow – Fixed the issue where using the skill while consuming Shards of Darkness after having learned Crow Food II, Storming Crow II, and with Storming Crow II locked, would display irregular movement.


  • Fallout – Fixed the issue where the skill’s add-on effect wouldn’t activate when the skill was on cooldown.
  • Infernal Destruction – Fixed the issue where the skill’s add-on effect wouldn’t activate when using Land Buster.
  • Spiral Cannon – Fixed the issue where the skill would only apply 6 hits instead of 7.
  • The Ancient Fragments of the Ancient Puturum who emerge from the Dark Rifts have begun to emit even stronger energies.
    • Changed the active region where the Ancient Puturum protect the Ancient Ruins and their legacy to Valencia’s desert only.
    • Changed the loot from the Ancient Puturum, which has become fortified with the energy emanated from the Ancient Fragments, into a more valuable reward.
    • Defeat the Ancient Puturum from the Dark Rift to obtain Mass of Pure Magic and Howling Dead Man’s Chest.
    • You’ll randomly get one of the following items enhanced up to DUO (II) from the Howling Dead Man’s Chest: Laytenn’s Power Stone, Ogre Ring, Eye of the Ruins Ring, Valtarra Eclipsed Belt, Basilisk’s Belt, Ring of Crescent Guardian.
