Scorching Desert Dragon Nest



The ebb and flow of the Monolith has caused much frustration in the world of Altera. Those who have suffered have travelled to the outskirts of a barren desert, where their voices have gathered enough power to reopen the Desert Dragon Nest in its new form—the Scorching Desert Dragon Nest!

This nest is now ready for the Level 90 cap, and has been scaled to handle 4 players. The bosses have been reduced from 7 to 5, and the remaining bosses have been updated with new skills and tactics! The rewards have been updated as well:

- Abyss Rewards: Lv. 90 unique-grade Armor and Weapons, unique-grade Crests, Hammer of Evolution Shard - Coma, Brilliant Talisman Essence, Quality Life-giving Essence, Spaera
- Hardcore Rewards: Lv. 90 unique-grade Armor and Weapons, unique-grade Crests, Brilliant Talisman Essence, Hammer of Evolution Shard - Coma, Hammer of Evolution Shard - Nightmare, Hammer of Evolution Shard - Cornura.

Join the flight crew of an airship with the new rare-grade costumes available in the Dragon Vault! The Silver Hunter has a special costume available as well. Machina gets some new hair and face styles, and your Little Winnie ally is ready for school! New items are also available in the Dragon Egg.

Guild Update

Enjoy new guild contents with your friends as we introduce the Sealed Guild Stone Tablet! Guild members can use Guild Points to activate this new feature.



Once activated, guild members ranked officer level and above can give Guild Points to the Sealed Guild Stone Tablet to fill up its meter. Once a day, general guild members can also add points by using “Hasten” which gives extra points to the meter. “Hasten” resets at 9:00 AM Pacific each day.

Daidalos Nest


A new threat has emerged in Altera—Daidalos Nest! The mad architect Daidalos seeks to claim his place in history by trapping players within his labyrinth…forever! Can you escape the demented doctor and his toy-like monsters?

To navigate the labyrinth, click here.

Dragon Vault Update


Get ready to go out of this world! New futuristic fashions have invaded the Dragon Vault, along with Machina hair and face styles, new hair styles for many classes, and the new Champion’s Package.

Then crack open a Dragon Egg, and see if you can find a UFO mount, a cloud spirit, and the gorgeous Blinding Constellation wing, tail, and decal set!

Mercenary Exploration System

Altera is a big world, and sometimes even the most experienced explorer doesn’t have time to see everything. Now you can send out brave mercenaries to explore the frontier for you! These mercs can complete exploration objectives on your behalf, and help you earn the riches that once graced the royals of Val Astrum.

Choose a total of 3 mercenaries; either ones you own or ones that you can rent.



Wait out the timer to receive your reward. The longer and more difficult the mission, the better chance of receiving awesome rewards!



Guild Update

The guild system has been updated to make it easier to use and level your guild! Guild EXP now turns into Guild Points (GP), which can be used to level up your guild, receive guild rewards, and more. The ‘GP Limit’ value increases as your guild level increases. Guild Points are automatically added to the guild after clearing dungeons, nests and completing guild achievements. Guild member contribution can also now be seen in the Guild window.



Guild Rewards have been streamlined so that the rewards can be viewed more easily. Most items in the ‘General’ sub-tab can be purchased by all guild members, while items in the ‘Guild Rewards’ sub-tab can only be acquired by guild members of officer level or higher.



Additional information:
- The amount of points required to max out a Guild Level has been reduced.
- The amount of points received after completing an achievement has been reduced.

The following new Guild Rewards have been added.
- Guild Member Damage Boost: +1%/+3%/+5%
- Guild Member Hero EXP Boost: +5%/+10%/+15%
- Guild Point Boost: +5%/+10%/+15%

Dragon Gem Enhancement

Lv. 90 Dragon Gems can now be enhanced in much the same way that armors and weapons can be enhanced. However, the materials needed for each enhancement must be extracted from other Lv. 90 Dragon Gems. Stats that pertain to the Dragon Gem will be upgraded when enhancing the gem. Keep enhancing to find out the max level of the Dragon Gem!



Hero System

After reaching the max level of Lv. 90, you can now earn Hero EXP when you clear a max level dungeon. This new Hero System allows you to continue leveling by an additional 50 levels! By continuing to level up, your stats and damage increase, making you stronger and ready to take on end-game content. This system is shared between all characters on a single account. The Hero Level UI has been added to the ‘Character’ window so that you can see your progress. There are limits as to how many levels you can earn on your characters, and there is a total limit to the amount of Hero EXP that your account can earn each week.



Damage Counter

You will now be able to see how much damage you and or your party does in a single dungeon or nest run! Use this to help analyze your attacks and make the most of your party’s run!

The damage meter information can be found in the ‘Overview’ menu (or press the ‘N’ key). In the ‘Damage’ tab, press ‘Start’ to begin recording the damage done by all party members during the dungeon or nest run. Press the ‘Stop’ button to finish the recording. The ‘Dungeon’ tab automatically records all of your damage done in all dungeons you visit during the play session. This information disappears when you log off.

- Various texts have been updated.

Death From Above
Machina is a member of the Dromaji race. Her village is nearly wiped out by a meteorite that carries a debilitating poison. Survivors are being treated with varying medicines and given prosthetic limbs where necessary. Machina has a mechanical right arm, but still needs medical help. She’s on her way for more treatment when the airship she’s riding on suddenly crashes! Stranded in Ironwood Village, she attempts to find her missing friends from the airship and becomes involved with the locals of Altera.



The Power of Steam
Machina learns the art of Steampunch from one of the locals. Using her mechanical arm (called a Knuckle) as well as a Claw, she can deliver brutal melee attacks. She relies mostly on Agility and Vitality, and can get up close to land quick and deadly blows before dancing away.

By fiercely attacking enemies with her Knuckle, Machina generates “Steam”. Once this resource is full, she can utilize it to pull off fast-paced combo attacks. As Machina grows and develops her skills, she can advance to a Patrona focusing the destructive power of her arm to wreak havoc on her enemies. Later she can choose to specialize in offense as a Ruina, or to concentrate on defense as a Defensio.
