_______________________________________________________

Advance Notice:

Dear Adventurers,
We apologize for the announcement regarding Node War changes made last week that created some confusion. We want to deliver more precise information and as a result, we would like to share with you the latest information regarding the upcoming changes to the Node War system as below.

◈ Things to note: An overview of the upcoming Node War changes

To participate in a Node War, the Guild Master or Guild Office will have to accept participation requests in advance.
It is similar to the previous “Sign Up,”(now Enlist) but simpler.

Once a Node War ends, the Guild Master or Guild Officer can immediately start receiving applications from your Guild Members who want to participate in the next Node War.

This means that once Node War is over, the Guild Master or Guild Officer can plan the next Node War. Once their Guild Members are notified and recruitment opens up, Guild Members can start signing up to participate in the Node War in advance.

A Guild Master or Guild Officer can press the [Recruit/Closing] button on the bottom of the Guild Member Status tab in the Guild (G) window, to open or close recruitment for Node War participation.

When recruitment is ongoing, a Guild Member can sign up to participate.

Participation status can be changed freely until the recruitment is closed, but once recruitment closes your Guild Members can no longer apply to participate. Therefore, when you need to decide your participation status, you should keep in mind what will happen next.

You wouldn’t want to end up with not enough members participating, or without your critical force present. The Guild Master or Guild Officer can use the “Select Extra Recruit” function to assign specific Guild Members as participants. However, only up to five additional members can be assigned with the “Select Extra Recruit” function. Please be aware that the members you chose cannot be changed once you confirm their selection.

It will be the Guild Members who will apply to participate in the Node War.

At maximum 5 Select Extra Recruits can be selected and after final confirmation, no other adjustments can be made.

Guild Members who have not registered before recruitment is over will not be able to participate in the Node War.

To participate in the Node War, the Guild Master or Guild Officer must close recruitment and finish building a fort before 20:00 UTC(EU) / 03:00 UTC (NA).

The minimum number of participants for a Node War is 10, including regular participants and additional participants recruited via the “Select Extra Recruit” function. However, the number of participants that actually participate in the war can be less than 10.

After the Node War is over, Guild Members who have participated will obtain medals depending on the result of the war.

The conditions above also apply to Guild Alliances who wish to participate in a Node War.

Node War rules will be changed as follows.

1. From when the Node War ends, the Guild Master or Guild Officer will be able to take in admissions of Guild Members to join the next Node War.
  • The Guild Master or Guild Officer will be able to take in admissions of Guild Members to join the next Node War using the [Recruit/Closing] button available on the bottom part of Guild Member Status window in Guild (G) window.

  • Chance to Occupy of the Guild Member Status will change to participation status where Guild Members can apply to participate in the next Node War during the recruiting period.

  • The Guild Member can choose whether to participate or not freely until the endof the recruiting period.

  • The end of the recruiting period of guild members to participate in the Node War will be decided by the Guild Master or the Guild Officer. Once recruiting period ends, no more requests to participate can be received from Guild Members.

  • However, Guild Master and Guild Office can decide on Select Extra Recruit from the confirmation window to join and finalize the Guild Members to fight in the Node War.

  • After the Closing button has been pressed by the Guild Master or Guild Officer, only the Guild Members who have been recruited already plus the Select Extra Recruit will be able to join that day’s Node War.

  • At maximum 5 Select Extra Recruits can be selected and after final confirmation, no other adjustments can be made.

2. Depending on the number of participants, the Guild Master or Guild Officer will select which Node to participate in, build a Fort, and gear up for war!
  • Recruitment period and building of the Fort must be completed before 20:00 UTC(EU) / 03:00 UTC (NA) to be eligible to participate on that day’s Node War.
  • The final number of the participating Guild of Guild Members + Select Extra Recruit will decide which Node can be selected. Upon building a Fort on a relevant Node, your Guild will be considered to be participating in that Node War. If your Guild withdraws a Fort already built, everything will reset and your Guild will have to start from recruitment again.
  • The minimum number of participants for a Node War is 10, including regular participants and additional participants recruited via the “Select Extra Recruit” function.

3. Node War will take place from 17:00 UTC ~ 20:00 UTC for EU and 00:00 ~ 03:00 UTC for NA (same as before), and during the Node War, no other participants may join.

4. Once the Node War concludes, rewards will be given out based on the result.
  • The Guild will receive Guild Funds. Different amount of money is rewarded per tier of the Nodes.
    (Total Node War fund-to-Node Tier ratio of Guild Funds to be rewarded is as follows: Tier 1: 20% Tier 2: 23% Tier 3: 27% Tier 4: 30%)
  • Guild Members who have participated will obtain medals depending on the result of the war.
  • Medals will be sent out via in-game mail and it can stay in the mailbox for a period of 1 week only.
  • Once Node War is over, all Guild Members’ participation status will be reset to “Not Participating.”

*The list of items you can exchange for medals is expected to grow.
  • In order to participate in the Conquest War, at least one or more Tier 3 or Tier 4 Nodes must be occupied.

  • Node War participation will be finalized only after a Fort is built by 20:00 UTC (EU)/03:00 (NA), after registration to the Node War is confirmed.

  • The same conditions will apply to Guild Alliances as well as Guilds.

1. All Nodes will be assigned new Tiers, as follows.


If you have 25 participants, you can chose to participate in a Tier 1 or 2 Node War. The same principle applies if you have 40 or 55 participants.



Node War participants will get medals depending on the result of the war, as follows.

  • War Status under the Guild window (G) will be changed to Conquest/Node Status and on this section, the contribution of the Conquest/Node Wars progressed on that day will be shown.
    • Contribution will be recorded based on the following actions during a Node/Conquest war.
  • The Medal is a special reward that is rewarded based on your contribution to the Node War and you can exchange the Medals for various items from a Skill Instructor NPC of each village.
    • Any abusing/violation of and related to the medals may result in a restriction of your account.

The Node List based on Tier and Day is as below:
