Developer's Comment

We are working on revamping monster zones to resolve the need for more zones to play in. However, since a revamp cannot be done in a short amount of time, we've decided to increase the monster respawn rate of some of the zones. Our initial plan was to have weekly events with different zones affected each week, but decided to include last week's zones to this week's event so that more adventurers can experience it. We promise we'll do our best to revamp the monster zones.

  • The Transport system has been revamped.

Developer's Comment

The existing transport system had wagons (ships) traveling around the world and adventurers had to place their goods on these wagons (ships) under reservation to a desired destination. Thus, you had to wait for these to arrive to where you are, even when you've made a transport reservation. However, we were also aware that  transportation system had a few intermittent issues where transport didn't start and items did not arrive correctly.
This system has now been improved so that you can have the transport with your goods depart whenever you want them to.

  • The transport system where goods could begin transporting only when the wagons arrive has been changed as below.
    • Up to 5 transport methods are available per family, which could be used to transport goods at anytime you want.
    • A transport method cannot be used again until its goods have been collected.
    • Transport will begin 5 minutes after you press the transport button in the Transport UI.
    • You can add or remove items before the transport begins. Once the process begins, you cannot add goods or cancel.
  • Same items can now be placed in the same slot and the weight limit has been increased.




Number of Slots

100 slots

20 slots per transport method


50LT per slot, total 5000LT

1500LT per transport method


Divided to another slot when
exceeding the slot weight limit

Same items are
stacked in one slot

  • Trade Goods cannot be transported anymore with this function.
  • There are total 5 transport wagons; you can send up to 100 slots of items or 7500 LT of weight all at once if you send all 5 transport wagons.
  • Transport cost calculation has been changed.



Cost calculated by item slots
even if the item weight is 0.1LT,
if it takes up a slot,
you are charged for the entirety of the slot.

Cost calculated by weight

  • Ex) Previously, transporting cost for 1 Black Stone would've been for 50LT of the slot, but after the patch, the cost will be for the weight of 1 Black Stone, which is 0.35LT.
  • More towns are now available for transport.
    • All towns except for Port Ratt, Arehaza Town, and Muiquun Town are now available for transport.
    • All transports before the patch have been moved to Heidel with their status changed to complete.
  • You can now interact with NPCs while riding a donkey, horse, camel, miniature elephant, or heilang.
    • Interactions are only available during mount standby and walking. Interaction is not available during Horseback Combat.
    • Interaction (R) that require change of motion such as greeting is not possible while mounted.

Developer’s Comment
Tamers can also make interactions while on their Heilangs.
Keep in mind that you still need to be off a mount to do interactions that require change of motion, such as greeting or stealing.

  • Temporary save function has been added to Customization (F4).
    • You can now continue your previous customization even when the game shuts down during customization.
  • Optimized certain effects to decrease file size.
  • Fixed the issue where some Pearl Boxes could not be used right away in the Pearl Shop after purchase.
  • Fixed the storage silver to be updated according to the Central Market's current prices.
  • Fixed the issue where the client would sometimes shut down when there is an underscore (_) in the customization file name.

[Game World]
  • Fixed the issue where characters were unable to get out of certain areas of the Mirumok Ruins.
  • Fixed the issue where characters were unable to move in certain areas of the Mirumok Ruins.
  • Fixed the issue where characters fell through the roof of some buildings in Calpheon City.
  • Fixed the water graphic of the Gervish Mountains valley of Duvencrune.
  • Fixed the abnormal character movement in front of Marni's 2nd Lab Node Manager.
  • Fixed the issue where certain parts of the streets of Velia did not look natural.
  • Fixed the graphical issue of some of the bushes in the Western Valtarra Mountains.

  • Fixed <Miscellaneous Merchant> Bert of Hystria to reappear after a certain amount of time when he disappears.
  • Fixed the issue where the appearance of Crow NPCs in Tarif would not be normal.
  • Fixed the issue where you are still on the tamed wild horse after registering and checking it in with a Stable NPC.
  • Added an option to trade 350 Dragon Scale Fossils for an Advice of Valks (+40) with Valks.

Developer’s Comment
This was a part of the Heidel Ball announcement and is included in today's patch.
We hope that this patch would give another method to acquire stacks and with it liven up the Sherekhan Necropolis area more than before.
Although the number of Dragon Scale Fossils required is high, we've also adjusted the drop rates last week so that obtaining them is 6 times easier than before.

  • Fixed the camera perspective issue after logging out during Observation Mode on a mount.
  • A message has been added for mounting a Sky Balloon.
    • “Use the interact function to board the Sky Balloon.”
  • Animation has been added to the Sky Balloon while in flight.
  • Fixed the issue where other players' Sky Balloons could not be seen upon login.
  • Trading will now be possible while mounted on a horse.
    • This change does not affect the weight limit to ride a mount.
    • This change applies to all trading items.
