Holiday events are also here including Cron Tree, a holiday background, and so much more! So continue on to the rest of the patch notes and keep it classy Adventurers!

  • Archer-related events are here to commemorate the Archer release:

      • Event Period: 12/12/2018 After Maintenance ~ 1/9/2019 Before Maintenance
      • Collect [Event] Archer’s Seal during the special event period and earn big rewards for the end of the year!
      • Click <Here> to find out more about this event!
    • 2) Archer 1+1 Dual EXP Share Event
      • Event Period: 12/12/2018 After Maintenance ~ 1/9/2019 Before Maintenance
      • During the event period, gain the same amount of the EXP you obtain (excluding EXP boosts) as Archer with one other character you want (up to 99% at Lv. 59).
      • Please check details below:
      • [Common]
        • Normally you can only tag characters when you have at least one character within the Family above Lv. 56. However, for the Archer 1+1 Dual EXP Share Event, you can tag characters as long as you have a Lv. 7 or higher Archer character.
        • Characters can be tagged with the Archer character to receive the EXP by being in a Safe Zone (same town) with either the character you want to receive the EXP with the Archer. However, you can only untag by claiming the Combat/Skill EXP that has been stored for the character. (Excluding Kusha, Abun, and Muiquun).
        • You can begin storing Combat/Skill EXP by selecting the main tagged character as the Archer through the Tag button located next to the Campsite button on the top left of the screen. Then, you can now store Combat/Skill EXP as you play as the Archer.
        • You can switch to the tagged character anywhere you want. However, you cannot switch while at the desert or in the ocean.
        • The Combat/Skill EXP will no longer be stored for tagging once the event has ended. However, the EXP stored prior to the end of the event will not disappear, therefore you will be able to claim the stored EXP anytime.
      • [Archer related]
        • After a character has been tagged with the Archer, only the Combat/Skill EXP gained through defeat monsters with the Archer character can be shared. (EXP gained through Black Spirit’s Training, quests, and Marni's Stone do not count).
        • Combat/Skill EXP gained through boosts such as a Value Pack, Book of Combat, or Extra Combat EXP Scroll can be stored for the tagged character.
        • While tagged, the Archer can be at any level while storing Combat/Skill EXP for the tagged sub-character (However, there are limitations to the tagged sub-character. Please refer the the notes below).
        • When the Archer has not yet completed the quest to reach Lv. 50, the Archer can still store EXP for the tagged character without leveling up. (For previous users, it is the [To Level 50!] Giant Catfishman Qoobe quest, and for the new users, it is the [To Level 50!] Breaking New Ground quest.)
        • You cannot use Black Spirit’s Training while tagged. However, note that you can still use the Book of Training.
        • The Combat EXP you lose when you die as the Archer does not affect the EXP stored for the tagged character.
      • [Sub-character related]
        • After a character has been tagged with the Archer, only the Combat/Skill EXP gained through defeat monsters with the Archer character can be shared. (EXP gained through Black Spirit’s Training, quests, and Marni's Stone do not count).
        • The stored Combat/Skill EXP can only be shared with the character who is tagged to the Archer. You can obtain the stored EXP with the tagged character by logging in as the tagged character, and then by clicking on the ‘Get EXP’ button in the Tag window.
        • The Combat/Skill EXP boosts from the Value Pack, Book of Combat, or Extra Combat EXP Scroll will not affect the tagged sub-character when claiming the stored Combat/Skill EXP.
        • EXP gained in a Party will be shareable. In addition, Olvia server buff and Fever Time buffs will also be shareable.
        • Sub-characters up to Lv. 59 can receive the stored Combat EXP.
          The tagged sub-characters cannot receive Combat EXP beyond the amount needed for reaching Lv. 59. This means that if a tagged sub-character has more than enough EXP to reach Lv 59, whatever extra EXP remains beyond Lv. 59 will be lost.
        • Skill EXP can be continued to be shared regardless of the tagged sub-character’s level.
        • If the tagged sub-character levels up beyond Lv. 50 through the shared EXP, then this character will not be able to gain more Combat EXP if the character does not complete the quest to reach Lv. 50 (For previous users, it is the [To Level 50!] Giant Catfishman Qoobe quest, and for the new users, it is the [To Level 50!] Breaking New Ground quest.)
    • 3) Level-up Event
      • During two special level-up periods, receive great prizes via Challenge (Y) tab for leveling up your Archer:
        • First level-up period: Dec. 12th, 2018 After Maintenance - Jan. 2nd, 2019 Before Maintenance
