Bless Online - Bless_Cheshire

Greetings, dear Bless Online players!

The team has been working hard on addressing your pressing issues as well as bringing you new content. Next week on 7/18 you will get to experience the Migra Turis (Elite) content! Other changes and content will be coming very soon as well, and you can read a bit about it all below.

Upcoming Content and Changes

Migra Turis (Elite) Update (7/18)

We have added a new level of difficulty to Migra Turis, which comes along with new rewards! Amongst other adjustments, players will now have a chance to obtain a Level 45 Heroic weapon from defeating the final boss, Flamelord Fogas.

Dungeon Drop Rate Changes (Coming Soon)

We know you all have been asking for a change in the dungeon drop rates. So, sometime soon after the 7/18 update, we will be hugely increasing the drop rate by doubling it. Further adjustments may still be made to the drop rate after we hear your feedback on the changes, so please let us know after you’ve tried it out!

Combat Targeting Mode Changes (Coming Soon)

Many of you have been asking to have the option to switch targeting mode for different classes. As such, we have been working to bring you more options. In the next change to the targeting mode options, you will be able to switch between modes with all classes except the Berzerker and Paladin, which will still be locked to action targeting and tab targeting respectively. As the Paladin needs to use tab targeting to effectively heal and the Berzerker skills were optimized for action targeting, we have not yet been able to give both mode options to these classes that resulted in a positive player experience. We will instead be adding a target tracking function for the Berzerker (and the other classes as well) that we think will address many of your issues.

Balance Changes (Coming Soon)

One major focus for the balance changes is PvP. We are making adjustments to the classes in ways that we think will contribute to a better PvP experience. We look forward to hearing your feedback after you have tried out the changes, as balance is always an ongoing process.
We are also working on PvE balance to improve the feel of each class in group play; amongst other things, we are working on buffing the aggro-holding ability of the Guardian.

Though we are working to bring you this new content and new improvements, we are also still working to address other big issues that you have brought up, such as optimization and additional balance and bug fixes. We appreciate the feedback that you continue to give us, and will keep using it to make Bless Online even better as we move towards launch.

Always at your service,

Dear players,

As we announced in our last Producer’s Letter on July 6th, we have a zero tolerance policy towards all types of hacks and exploits and will continue to take the appropriate measures to ban users abusing the game. Our CMs have also announced through Discord that BattlEye bans are being enforced, starting last weekend.

We have been continuously communicating with BattlEye in order to implement a detection system that allows us to accurately track users who have used any illegal programs or modified any of the core game files. However, modifying .ini files to increase FPS will not cause players to be banned.

Thank you for your reports that help us to identify the current hacks in Bless Online. Please continue to report any hacks or cheats so they can be dealt with swiftly.

Players who use illegal programs have been permanently banned. Since July 3rd (PDT / CEST) when the hack detection was enabled, 161 people have been banned. Currently players who are banned by BattlEye will see a generic connection failed message, but we will fix this issue so that players can know whether the shutdown is due to Battleye ban or server connection fail.

We are committed to resolving hacking issues as quickly as possible in order to make Bless Online a cheat-free and fair game for everyone.

Thank you again for all the reports you’ve been sending to us; we will continue to consider all your suggestions and feedback as we work to keep improving Bless Online.

Thank you,
The Bless Team

Greetings, dear Bless Online players!

We hope you have been enjoying the July 4th Update with the new end-game content Basel Gorge and the Royal Quests. We’re listening closely to your feedback on it as you explore the different aspects of this new area and new quests. We hope you like the Market improvements as well.

Optimization

We know that optimization is a big question on the community’s collective mind right now, and know that many users are manually editing the .ini file in an effort to improve performance themselves. While we know that improving performance isn’t that simple, we also recognize that this altering of .ini files represents a greater issue, and we’re working to improve it. Our devs are in fact currently in the process of refining the settings so that players who don’t alter the .ini file can further customize the game to match their own needs through the game’s own settings menu.

In addition to this first step towards improved optimization, we are currently focused on looking for solutions and fixing the performance issues that are at the core of the community-made .ini file modifications. We have identified specific function problems in the UI manager and in level streaming, and we are working to delete unneeded files that were included in the game build (removing redundant output in region level boundaries, etc).

Aside from the improvements in the client, we are also continuously working on network-related problems and server stability as mentioned in our previous announcements. We will give updates on improvements as they continue to progress, and in order to find any potential root causes that we are currently unaware of, we plan to conduct stress tests in a separate test environment (Live Service X) sometime in July.

Hacking

In the recent days we have received many reports and have been made aware of certain hacks that players are using to gain an unfair advantage over others in the game. This is absolutely against our terms of service, and we have already been taking immediate action against hackers.

In addition to working on our own to track down and take action against hacking, exploiting, botting issues, and more, we greatly appreciate your reports to us of these issues. Sharing videos with us that contain character names and server info is extremely helpful and allows us to take the quickest and most accurate measures to address the problem.

Using such tools and modifying the client are clearly methods of cheating; this is not a grey or unclear area. As such, we are issuing permanent bans to those who are or have been abusing these hacks. It is important to us that players are who aren’t using hacks are able to enjoy the Bless experience fully, and we believe these actions are towards that goal.

Hello adventurers!

The team has been busy working on the next update to Bless Online, and today we wanted to spend some time talking about that update (v1.3.0.0) as it will be released on July 4th! The focus of this update is new end-game content: Royal Quests and Basel Gorge.

Royal Quests

Royal Quests are a new daily quest series that will be available to characters starting at level 45. Players will be able to find an accept these quests in multiple locations around the world; they will be marked by purple quest icons on the world map. Players will be able to complete a total of 15 Royal Quests per day to get the most rewards possible.

These quests have better rewards than regular quests! Not only does each Royal Quest have a higher gold reward than a normal quest, but for every 5 Royal Quests completed each day, players will receive an additional bonus reward via in-game mail.

Royal Quest completed 5 times
[Luxury] Royal Box × 1
Royal Quest completed 10 times
[Rare] Royal Box × 1
Royal Quest completed 15 times
[Hero] Royal Box × 1

The top tier [Hero] Royal Box even has a small chance of dropping rare pets and mounts.

Basel Gorge


Basel Gorge is the highly contested centerpoint of the conflict between the Union and Hieron factions. As such, it is recommended that players approach Basel Gorge with a party of level 45 characters.

Located to the east of where the Siege of Castra takes place, Basel Gorge has many different gameplay elements for players to participate in. There are two main objectives to compete for with the opposing faction; controlling the three neutral bases and killing the various bosses in the Basel Gorge area.

While in Basel Gorge, players are able to gain more Combat Points from engaging in PvP than they would in other open world zones by controlling neutral bases. Gaining control of a neutral base will grant all members of that faction currently in Basel Gorge a “Gorge Occupier” buff.
This buff can stack up to three times, once for each neutral base in the area. Each stacked buff grants a 7% increase in movement speed and increases the amount of Combat Points gained from killing another player by 50%, making faction PvP within Basel Gorge extra rewarding.

However, keep a close eye on the bases! Once a base is captured, it will only belong to that faction for twenty minutes before it reverts to neutral and can be contested by the opposing faction once again.

Basel Gorge is laid out with Hieron in the north and Union in the south. There are also various teleporters and revive points for each faction spread throughout the map. Bosses spawn towards the middle of the area, with some spawn locations being more easily contested by one faction than the other.

The bosses players will find in Basel Gorge are more difficult than the typical elite bosses that are spread across the world of Bless. There are also three different rarities of bosses, determined by their respawn time and the randomness of their spawn location. Sak the Hobgoblin Fiend and Murderous Rover Sykeeli are the most common; they are on short respawn timers and will spawn at predictable locations throughout the map. Ensanguined Ursuta and the Giant Malefic Blob are on a slightly longer respawn timer and will appear in one of seven random locations around the map. Last, but certainly not least, Spider Queen Akasys—one of the most challenging bosses in Basel Gorge—is on the longest spawn timer and will appear in one of seven random locations when she spawns.

Loot in Basel Gorge works differently than it does in other areas in Bless. Participation in the fight for each boss is calculated to determine the overall contribution of each person in the fight. The more a player participates in each fight, the more Combat Points they will be awarded for defeating the boss. Remember that in Basel Gorge, players are always competing against the opposing faction for credit on boss kills. Loot drops will be distributed via die roll for the faction that successfully takes down the boss.

As you can see, there are many ways to enjoy the new Basel Gorge content. Players can choose to fight difficult bosses, attack bases, defeat members of the opposing faction—or even a combination of the three! We hope you all have as much fun with this new content as we do, and we look forward to hearing your feedback on it.

Thank you,
The Bless Team

Greetings, dear Bless Online players!

The focus of today’s letter is new content, changes and improvements that we will be bringing to you in Bless Online very soon. The team has been working hard on things for future updates, and we wanted to share a bit about them with you.

The July 4th Update Content (v1.3.0.0)

We have heard all of your feedback that you would like to see more activities and content added for the end-game, and this update will do just that! We will be adding Royal Quests and Basel Gorge for your enjoyment.

Royal Quests

Royal Quests are a new daily quest series that will be available to characters starting at level 45. Players will be able to find and accept these quests in multiple locations around the world; they will be marked by purple quest icons on the world map. Players will be able to complete a total of 15 Royal Quests per day to maximize their rewards—which we think they will want to do since these quests have better rewards than regular quests. Some of the possible rewards even include rare pets and mounts!

Basel Gorge

Basal Gorge is the crux of the conflict between the Union and Hieron factions. As such, it is recommended that Basel Gorge be approached with a party of level 45 players.

Located to the east of where the Siege of Castra takes place, Basel Gorge has a wide variety of gameplay elements that players can take part in, including difficult bosses to take down (Spider Queen Akasys, Murderous Rover Sykeeli, and more), enemy bases to attack, and enemy troops to battle. With options for many kinds of play within Basel Gorge, we hope that all high-level players are able to enjoy this area as much as we do.

You can look forward to more details about Basel Gorge and Royal Quests being shared soon!

Market Improvements

In addition to this new content, we are also going to be making some adjustments to improve the Market with the update on July 4th. We received your feedback that the Market was not functioning in the way that either you wanted or we intended, so we are making some changes to its functionality. Please let us know what you think of these changes once they have been implemented.

Changes in the Market

Our goal with these changes is to prevent players from having difficulty using or from being unable to use the Market due to issues with item prices being raised to values that most players can’t afford to pay. We already implemented a first step in these changes on June 26nd which you can read about here.

We have adjusted some of the standard prices of certain items that have been abnormally changed, and temporarily locked them so as to reach stability in the Market. We also temporarily increased the range of the minimum/maximum registration price and will leave it that way until the Market balance is improved.

UI

In addition, we will also be making some improvements to the Market UI to make it more user friendly, and plan to display additional information about transactions that have been made and make other modifications to the UI according to the system changes.

We have even more updates planned for the near future, so stay tuned! We’re also still working on many improvements stemming from your feedback on balance, performance, bugs, and more. We look forward to hearing your feedback on these new changes and content.

Always at your service,
Sungjin Ko, Executive Producer
