Major Update: Naderr’s Band

  • The sorceresses of Tarif, who have been studying the Black Spirit for a long time, have uncovered an ancient spell. This spell calls Naderr’s Band, through which the Black Spirit can exchange enhancement chance.
    • 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 Naderr’s 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 on 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 one Naderr’s Band slot is higher than 100, a 10 minute cooldown will be applied for using any Naderr’s Band slot. However, Valks enhancement chance does not count towards the 100.
      • E.g. 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, a 10 minute cooldown will be applied for using Naderr’s Band.

Major Update: New monsters at Hexe Sanctuary

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

  • Added a monster zone to Hexe Sanctuary with a recommended AP of 160.
    • Traitor’s Gravestones were hidden in the depths of Hexe Sanctuary but were eventually discovered. Attack them to attract all sorts of “Grudge-Bearing” enemies
      • Traitor’s Gravestones can be found around Marie Cave within the Hexe Sanctuary.
    • The enemies will try to protect the Traitor’s Gravestones, and by destroying the gravestones you will also vanquish the enemies.
    • Most enemies will respawn at certain intervals while a new Green Orc Skeleton Warrior will respawn every time one is defeated.

Major Update: Revamped Quest Window

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.

  • 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.

Major Update: Crow’s Sacred Chest

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

    • 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.

[Quest]

  • Combined the Awakening and Succession quests into one quest series per class.
    • Once you’ve reached Lv. 56, open the Quest (O) window and look for the tab that says “New Power.”
    • Complete quest series 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 “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.

If you encounter this issue, please reaccept the quest and kill all the Red Paladins from a closer distance to complete this quest.
  • We are aware of the issue where the cooldown for using Naderr’s Band with enhancement chance of 100 and above is showing as 1 hour and 10 minutes instead of just 10 minutes.
