Get Ready for An Enhanced Gaming Experience Tomorrow with ALL the Revamps Coming In!

Heya adventurers! We’ve got something big coming in tomorrow and I’m just going to get right into in it and spoil it for you, if that’s ok (the title already spoiled it anyway). A large revamp patch is coming in and that means there’s a bunch of improvements on the way! From small things like crafting items to things like remodeling the guild base and improving some of the characters’ skills, there’s certainly no shortage of exciting things to look forward to. And for this week, we have a bunch of cute and snuggly items coming in so you can celebrate your Easter adorably – like a bunny or a bear. So, don’t forget to check these out and more tomorrow!

General Revamp
The changes in the general revamps encompasses quests, system related, dungeon related, and item related revamps. Here’s a quick preview of what to expect:
  • Players only have to play a set number of Epic Quest depending on the region. They also get more Stamina Potions for each Epic Quest they finish!
  • Players below level 90 will now need less EXP when leveling up! Cheers to less grinding and more leveling, I say!
  • The difficulty of Normal Dungeons has been removed and has now defaulted to “Very Hard” mode. Just because it’s less grinding doesn’t mean it has to be easy!
  • And, crafting has become less confusing just because you can use more items now! Things that take less space in my inventory are winners in my book!

Guild Revamp
We’re improving your guild experience with these changes and Myu wants to be more involved with Guild relations! She’s front and center in towns now!
  • We’ve increased the guild capacity so you can invite more people and their whole friends’ list for the strongest guild ever!
  • Revamped guild skills for a more guild-friendly experience.
  • Updated Guild Services and Guild Quests
  • And most importantly, we’ve got a spiffy new one-floor Guild Base which has access to everything you need.

Item Lock Revamp
We’ve also added a new lock system to protect your “prrrrecious” costumes, armors, and weapons from theft or accidental destruction. This is super handy for players who want to make sure that their hard-earned items will never be compromised. Ever.

Item Mall Goodies
When things are looking a little grizzly, you can brighten up your day with this adorable I Bear Cuddles costume suit! Let’s all be bears tomorrow!

If being a bear isn’t enough, you can always get a cute bear maid to be your pet. It’s totally harmless… errr… if enemies keep their distance, that is. The Shy Teddy Maid can be yours tomorrow!

Annnnd! Right in time for Easter, these extra cute accessories have decided to make themselves available to everyone for a limited time. The Fluffy Rabbit Carrot, Fluffy Rabbit Mini-Me, and the Fluffy Rabbit Cushion are all available tomorrow!

That’s all for now folks!

See y’all in-game!
