New Unique/Legend Raid Preview

Greetings Saviors,   Today we would like to give you a sneak preview of the new Unique/Legend raid, The Tomb of the White Crow.       Tomb of the White Crow   The Tomb of the White Crow can be entered through the Dimensional Crack that appears after clearing the Shadowmancer’s quest in Rasvoy Lake. It is an area that the Shadowmancer Master Eclipse Ubik had come across accidentally during her studies.      Eclipse Ubik had entered the area thinking that she had reached the goal of her studies but a powerful demon had been waiting for her in the area. Feeling threatened, she had sealed away the demon using sealing mechanisms that she had devised and left the area thereafter.      But Ubik soon came to the realization that the seal she had laid to bind the demon in place was rapidly weakening over time and she had come to seek the help of the Saviors of the realm in order to seal away the demon for good.     Skiaclipse   The Tomb of the White Crow is a raid that is designed so that players are in a continuous battle against the raid boss. You will first come across Skiaclipse entrapped by the Shadowmancer Master’s device.     But soon he begins to chip away at the seal and regain his suppressed power. Players must protect the Sealing Orbs in this phase of the raid.       You try to protect the Sealing Orbs, but Skiaclipse unleashes his power and frees himself from the seal.     Skiaclipse is still very powerful despite having lost much of his power while being sealed away.     His power grows as the fight draws on. To prevent Skiaclipse from regaining his full power, the devices set in place by the Shadowmancer Master must be activated.     Successfully making use of these devices will prevent the demon’s power from growing, but failing to do so will leave the you to deal with the monstrous wrath of Skiaclipse.     When weakened to a point, Skiaclipse will begin his frantic last stand against the Savior. Should you be able to withstand his final struggle, you will be successful in sealing the terrible demon away.     New Equipment: Unique-level Skiaclipse Series     The Unique-grade Skiaclipse series of equipment are special items that can only be obtained through the Tomb of the White Crow raid. They have fixed stats like the items obtained from raids introduced earlier and can be used to extract ichors from as well as worn into battle.   And…   Just as players begin to grow accustomed to the Skiaclipse raid, the new Legend Raid: Tomb of the White Crow will be made available. The new legend raid will be comprised of bigger, badder and harder gimmicks and reworked Skiaclipse boss monster, as well as new Legend-grade equipment available as a reward.     That will be all for the Dev post today. Thank you all for reading!

Episode 11: An Introduction

To the Ruins of the New Capital: Episode 11     Taking a departure from the old rank system, the dev team has decided to expand on the TOS world in increments of episodes. The dev team is currently focused on developing the new Episode 11 for TOS and would like to share some of its contents with you, our dear readers.     New Quests, New Locations     Episode 11 will include 11 new areas, new NPC’s, new monsters and demon lords. The current level cap of 390 will also be increased to 420.     The Remains of the Astral Tower       The Astral Tower awaits your return. You will carry on the legacy of the Astral Tower alongside the surviving Schaffenstar members and Lakers in Barynwell 27 Waters.     The Last Remaining Gateway to The Capital       The outer walls that protected the Kingdom’s Capital had worn down following Medzio Diena. The brave soldiers that manned the walls had gone missing and only the wounded survivors remain within the wall’s limits, hidden away from the prying eyes of demons. The story of the Kingdom’s survivors start here at these very walls.     The Last Revelation and the Goddess Medeina   Despite being under the watchful eye of the Demon King Kartas, the Goddess Medeina has decided to reveal herself to the Savior in order to pass on the Last Revelation.   Goddess Medeina     The Demon King Kartas is scheming to bring Medeina, the Forest Goddess, under his captivity behind the Demon Goddess Giltine’s back. This story unfolds in the northern regions of Parias Forest.     Continued Character Growth through Quests     The dev team is aware of the feedback that there should be better ways for the players who want to immerse themselves in the TOS world to level their characters, not having to resort to hunting the fields. We wanted to make completing quests a worthwhile investment for our players by providing equipments and items that will assist their characters in reaching the new level cap.   This feature had been implemented previously with the Re:Build update and we will continue to do so with our future updates as well.     Pajauta The Guardian of the People   Pajauta   Pajauta is the new NPC who has saved the people from the wrath of Medzio Diena. Even before Medzio Diena, she had played a major role in the investigation of demon cults and many other problems that plagued the Kingdom behind the scenes. Some had even gone as far as to call her the second coming of Lydia Schaffen, but in the end, she had given up all hopes as the situation in the Kingdom got worse after Medzio Diena.   In her moment of despair, she had heard news of the Savior and set out to find you in order to ask for your help in returning order to the Kingdom’s northern regions.   The dev team has prepared a prerequisite quest for Episode 11 to help players ease into the new content without too much trouble. You will travel the northern regions of the Kingdom with Pajauta at your side and she will guide you towards the last revelation.     The New Raid Boss and the Main Quest     New demon lords await you in Episode 11. Players will be able to preview the attack patterns of the new raid bosses while playing through the new quest lines.   Demon Lord Moringponia     Item Changes in Episode 11     Acquisition of Legend-grade Items     Legend-grade items can now be acquired through many different contents.   This will reduce the time and effort it takes for players to reach the level at which they can partake in the game’s most densely populated contents. Players will still be required to upgrade their items, but we will now provide a larger variety of ways in which the base items can be obtained.     Field Drop Legend-Grade Items       Players will now be able to obtain Legend-grade equipment by hunting monsters in the fields.   Monsters will drop the materials required in crafting the new Legend-grade equipment and the crafted equipment will be given random stats. The set bonuses will be predetermined and new equipment will be categorized by different attack properties.     Raid Bosses, Field Bosses and Hunting Grounds Bosses     Contents Raid Boss Field Boss Hunting Grounds Boss Rewards Legend item recipes, tradeable finished items + Unique item recipes, finished unique items Legend item recipes, tradeable finished items + Unique recipes, finished unique items + Field boss accessories Legend item recipes, tradeable finished items + Unique recipes, finished unique items + Seals + Magic Stones Options Ichors Ichors Ichors Set Bonuses 1 of 2~4 types of set bonuses 1 of 2~4 types of set bonuses 1 of 2~4 types of set bonuses     Raids     The materials required to craft items earned with previous raids had to be earned in the fields. The abundance of the materials was high in comparison to the actual drop rate of the recipes because they could be obtained relatively easily through Challenge Modes, which made the Raids feel more like a grind.   The new raids will be developed so that they drop legend recipes, unique recipes and finished legend items that can be traded. Also, the required materials for crafting new equipment from acquired recipes will be reduced to make the process quicker.     Field Bosses     Field Bosses provide a competitive PvE experience for players. However, they have not been of great importance because of the reward system that is based on the grade of the Field Boss and lacking reward content. We are planning to introduce new Unique ~ Legend grade items as Field Boss rewards with set bonuses that are different from the equipment acquired from general Raids.     Hunting Grounds Bosses     Seals, magic stones and various tradeable Unique and Legend-grade items will be provided through a 1:1 battle with the Hunting Grounds Bosses. The difficulty of the new bosses will be much higher than the bosses available in Irredian Shelter.     In Summary   The items below the Unique-grade can be used to extract Ichors, while 2-4 different types of Legend-grade set bonuses will be available for each of the different content.     Transcendence, Random Options and Awakening     Transcendence of Unique Items     Transcendence of items below the grade-level of Unique will be lowered. Players have a difficult time in deciding whether to transcend their Unique weapons or not, since Unique weapons are currently considered to be weapons that will eventually be discarded. Unique weapons will now come pre-transcended. Unidentified items will vary in their initial transcendence level by random and items crafted from recipes will have a set base transcendence level, and, of course, players will be able to invest in these items to transcend them even further.     Raids     The upper-level raids will have their entry limits increased and have different requirements or rewards to compensate for the changes. For example, if the Velcoffer raid can be entered 2 times per week per team, its reward will be increased by x fold. Not only will the rewards be increased, but the finished items and recipes acquired in the raid will also be made tradeable. The raid rewards will also not be issued via cubes but from treasure chests that players can open after they have defeated the raid boss.     Random Stats     The maximum values of the random stats that appear upon identification will be increased as well as the increased occurrence of useful options such as increased critical rate.     Awakening Rework     You can use additional materials at the Alchemist shops to add Awakening bonuses with greater effects.       New Item Upgrades     New Unique & Legend-Grade Items   The level requirement for new items introduced in Episode 11 will be Lv. 400.       Set Bonuses and Ichors     Set Bonuses     Players will be able to pick and choose the set bonuses to be added to the Lv. 400 items.     Ichor Transmutation     A transmutation system will be introduced for Ichors to ensure that players can get 100% Ichor extraction. Players can use three items of full potential for extract Ichors successfully. The Ichor for one of the three items used will be extracted at random.     As in the picture above, there will be a 33% success rate of Ichor extraction  if the total sum potential of the three items are 13/39, and if the sum potential for the three items are 39/39, the player will have a 100% chance of extracting one random Ichor belonging to one of the three items used.     Ichor Transfer     A new system will also be added that lets players unequip Ichors from items that have already been equipped to legend-grade items. It will consume silver but there will be no probability involved in the process. This new system will be introduced on the same date with the new legend raid equipments.     Legend Raid Entry Limit     Following the update, all legend raid entry limit will be set to 5 times per week. All rewards will be adjusted accordingly and players will also be able to obtain Legend Raid Portal Stones from the 6th and 7th stages of Challenge Mode, which will require a regular Raid Portal Stone to be crafted.   Legend Raid Portal Stones will grant players entry to Legend Raids(Earth Tower, Velcoffer, etc.) after they have used up their 5 time entry limit for the week. Legend Raid Portal Stones will not be useable with newly introduced content. The application of Legend Raid Portal Stones will be expanded with subsequent updates.     Class Tree Abilities     With the introduction of new classes, special abilities for each of the class trees will be readjusted. These class-specific abilities are chosen to be skills that will help each class survive in battle.   Swordsman - Pain Barrier   100% resistance to status ailments will be added to Pain Barrier. The duration of the status ailment resistance buff will be kept separately from the knockback/knockdown immunity. Wizard - Teleportation   Psychokino’s Teleportation skill will be moved to the Wizard class. Archer - Leap   Mergen’s Jump Shot skill will be moved to the Archer class and its attack will be removed. Cleric - Cure   Cure skill’s maximum level will be increased. Scout - Cloaking   The skill can no longer be used while the player is in combat, and movement speed will be increased while under the Cloaking buff.     New Classes     New classes will be added with the Episode 11 update.

Strategies and Tips   Concept Guild Territory Wars (GTW) are a guild-oriented PvP game mode where guilds can battle each other to seize one of the game’s Spot Area maps. Winning at GTW comes with special perks and benefits which cement your guild’s influence and prestige. Schedule GTW sessions happen every Sunday on the following schedule.   Server Region Start End [NA] Klaipeda EST 20:00 EST 21:00 [SA] Silute EST 17:00 BRST 20:00 EST 18:00 BRST 21:00 [EU] Fedimian EST 14:00 CET 20:00 EST 15:00 CET 21:00 [SEA] Telsiai EST 07:00 SGT 20:00 EST 08:00 SGT 21:00   Participation If your guild wants to participate in GTW, the guild master can change your participation options under the combat tab of the Guild window. Note: - Participation options can be changed by the guild master only. - If participation is set to ON, the guild master cannot transfer their position to another member. - Participation options cannot be changed from 5 minutes before a GTW session starts to 1 minute after it ends. - If your guild is participating in GTW, joining, abandoning and disbanding the guild will not be possible during the session. - Members who abandoned their previous guild less than 14 days in the past cannot participate in GTW sessions. Spot Areas Spot Areas are the game maps your guild can try and seize during a GTW session. There are three Spot Areas available in the World Map.   Spot Areas Connected Maps Genar Field Altar Way Manahas Pilgrim Path Aqueduct Bridge Area Tenants' Farm Myrkiti Farm Demon Prison District 1 Greene Manor Baron Allerno Tenants' Farm Gytis Settlement Area Myrkiti Farm   To enter a Spot Area during a GTW session, use the green arrows in connected maps and select the ‘Territory Wars Location’ option. GTW Rules 1) Start Once the session starts, all members of the participating guilds are allowed to enter the Spot Areas. Inside these maps, PvP combat is always available among competing guilds. Note: - Some items and skills are restricted inside the Spot Areas. - Save for a few select classes, summoning and mounting Companions is not available inside the Spot Areas. 2) Seizing a Spot Inside each Spot Area there is a Territory Tower, around which guild members can either gain points or make the attacking guilds lose points. You can also gain points by destroying the Amplifiers that spawn around the map. 2.1) Gaining Points Members of attacking guilds (those trying to seize the Spot) can stand within the Tower perimeter to gain points for their guild. The number of points gained per second depends on the number of guild members around the Tower.   No. of guild members 1 member 2 members 3 members 4+ members Points gained per sec 3 5 7 9   When your guild reaches 1,000 points, you seize the Spot! If more than one guild reaches 1,000 points at the same time, the points will no longer accumulate until only one guild remains. 2.2) Reducing Points Members of the defending guild (the one currently holding the Spot) can stand within the Tower perimeter to reduce the points of the attacking guilds. The number of points reduced per second depends on the number of guild members around the Tower.   No. of guild members 1 2 … 9 10+ Points reduced per sec 1 2 9 10   3) Spot Seized Once a guild succeeds in seizing a Spot, members of the other guilds are automatically sent to a nearby city after 5 seconds. The guild that holds the Spot by the end of the session can enjoy beneficial buffs within the Spot Area, with buff effects stacking according to the total amount of time that the Spot is held.   Buff name Effects Duration Note Guardian -20% damage received (additional -5% per stack) For as long as the same guild holds the Spot Max. 3 stacks   Territory Amplifiers Territory Amplifiers are devices that spawn around a Spot Area. When an Amplifier is destroyed, the guild that dealt the last blow can receive +200 points and a beneficial buff effect. Amplifiers can be destroyed by both defending and attacking guilds, with the latter receiving both the points and the following effects.   Buff name Effects Duration Note Damage and Movement Speed Increased Damage +30% Movement speed +5 5 min Does not stack Note: - Each Spot Area map produces a maximum of 5 Amplifiers. - The effects apply only inside the Spot Area map, and they disappear if a new guild seizes the Spot. - Amplifiers appear 8-10 minutes after the beginning of the session. If one is destroyed, it respawns after 8-10 minutes. - An alert message appears in the Spot Area 30 seconds before an Amplifier is generated. - Amplifiers will no longer be generated starting 10 minutes before the end of the session. Tree Root Crystals Different types of Tree Root Crystals are randomly generated within the Spot Area. Each type gives you a different beneficial effect, according to its function.   Type of Crystal Effects Duration Speed (Blue) Greatly increases movement speed 5 sec Regeneration (Pink) Instantly restores 30% HP and SP, then 500 more per sec 30 sec Attack (Red) Increases damage dealt and taken by 50% 30 sec Defense (Purple) Reduces damage taken and dealt by 50% 30 sec   Note: - If you are already under the effect of one Crystal, other Crystal effects will not apply (the effects do not stack). - Buff effects disappear if your character becomes incapable of combat. Boss Monsters At certain times during the session, a boss monster will appear in the Spot Area map. The guild that deals the last blow to it gets a special buff within the map.   Buff name Effects Duration Note Thick Skin -30% damage received Knockback/knockdown immunity 5 min Does not stack   The first boss monster appears 10 minutes after the start of the session, then it reappears 10 minutes after it is defeated.

Official GTW Guide 2 – Rewards

Click the links below to read the other GTW guides. 1. How to Play 2. Rewards 3. Strategies and Tips   Honor Rewards Five minutes after the end of the session, members of the winning guild can retrieve the following honor rewards at the Expedition Merchant NPC in the Guild Hangout, according to the Spot Area seized.   Spot Area Rewards Genar Field Black Champion Costume Conqueror Armband Aqueduct Bridge Area Black Champion Costume Baron Allerno Black Champion Costume   Note: - These rewards can be collected until the start of the next GTW session. - The items will include a time limit according to how much time is left until the next session. Tariff Collection After the end of each GTW session, the winning guilds can accumulate and collect tariff funds from cities and the Market, according to the Spot Area seized. 1) City Tariffs Each Spot Area corresponds to a city where local tariffs can be adjusted by the owning guild. The higher the tariff rate, the larger the amount collected. Here is the list of cities and the Spot Areas they correspond to.   Genar Field Baron Allerno Aqueduct Bridge Area Klaipeda Orsha Fedimian   Each guild can adjust their city’s tariff rates under the GTW benefits section of the Guild window (combat tab). The automatic default rate is 10%, and you can adjust it to any number between 0% and 20%. Note: - City tariff rates can be adjusted only by the guild master or members with the corresponding authority. - After adjusting a rate, it can only be adjusted again after 1 hour. - Rates cannot be adjusted from 1 hour before the start of a GTW session until 5 minutes after it ends. - If a Spot Area’s owning guild changes after the end of the session, the corresponding city’s tariff rate resets to the default (10%). - No tariff rates (0%) apply to members of the owning guild within the corresponding city. When the standard rate of 10% is applied to a city, regular players see no change to their Silver spending, compared to how much they would spend before this system was introduced. The change happens when the rate is set below or above 10%, which in turn reduces or increases Silver prices (and the amount accumulated for the owning guild) accordingly. Since the standard is 10%, if a guild applies a tariff rate of 0% (minimum rate) to their city, a transaction that would normally cost 10,000 Silver will now cost 10% less (9,000 Silver) to any regular player, and the amount accumulated for the owning guild from that transaction will be 0. At a tariff rate of 10% (default rate), a transaction that would normally cost 10,000 Silver will continue to cost 10,000 Silver for a regular player, with 10% of that amount (1,000 Silver) accumulated as part of the tariff for the owning guild. If the guild has set a tariff rate of 20% (maximum rate), a transaction that would normally cost 10,000 Silver will now cost 10% more (11,000 Silver) for a regular player, with 20% of that amount (2,000 Silver) accumulated as tariff funds for the owning guild. Tariff funds are accumulated starting 5 minutes after the end of the GTW session, until the end of the next session. These tariffs apply to Silver spent by players who are not members of the owning guild within the corresponding city in the following transactions. Item Merchant: item purchases Equipment Merchant: weapon and armor purchases Accessory Merchant: accessory purchases Companion Trader: companion adoption, companion food purchases, companion training Blacksmith: repairs, recipe purchases, socket addition, gem extraction, identification, item dismantling, weapon appearance changes (if the potential loss prevention option is ON) Storage: Team Storage expansions Geraldas Family: gem purchases Magic Association: item purchases Fishing Manager: item purchases Teliavelis: item purchases, seal enhancement Appraiser Master: identification Tariff rates do not apply to Silver spent in the following transactions: - Warps - Class-specific supply purchases - Guild foundation - Etchings - Personal Storage transactions 2) Market Tariffs Guilds who own a Spot Area can also receive a set percentage of the Silver spent on Market fees (both registration and sale fees). Funds accumulated through these tariffs are calculated on a weekly basis.     Genar Field Baron Allerno Aqueduct Bridge Area Market tariff 4% 3% 3%   Market tariffs apply starting 5 minutes after the end of a GTW session, until the end of the next session. 3) Tariff Fund Distribution Accumulated tariff funds can be viewed under the GTW benefits UI (Guild window), and distributed to your guild members for one week after they are received. E.g. if the GTW session takes place on the 10th, tariff funds will accumulate for 1 week until the 17th, and they can only be distributed during the week after that (until the 24th).   Note: - The amount designated as tariff funds includes both city and Market tariffs. - The list will update 1 hour after the end of the GTW session. - Only the guild master or members with the corresponding authority can distribute funds. - Funds left undistributed one week after they are received will be automatically deleted and cannot be recovered. - If the guild is disbanded, any funds left undistributed will be automatically deleted and cannot be recovered. - All logs related to funds received and distributed are kept in the ‘Records’ tab. 4) Retrieving Distributed Funds Guild members who receive part of the funds when they are distributed will see an alert message appear on the screen that allows them to retrieve their allocated amount. Note: - The alert will appear to all of your characters for as long as you have funds left to retrieve. - After the funds are distributed, you have 14 days to retrieve them (if not retrieved, the funds are automatically deleted and cannot be recovered). - Retrieved funds are sent to the inventory of the character that receives them. - If you abandon your guild, any funds left to be retrieved will be automatically deleted and cannot be recovered.

Official GTW Guide 3 – Strategies and Tips

Click the links below to read the other GTW guides. 1. How to Play 2. Rewards 3. Strategies and Tips   Paths to the Spot Area There are only three Spot Areas in total, but each of them is connected to multiple maps, which allows for different approaches to the battle. Guilds can split and divert the attention of the enemy while the main forces carry on, or enter together for a combined attack. Invincibility Buff Upon entering a Spot Area, your character gains a temporary invincibility buff that lasts for 5 seconds unless you move, jump, or use a skill or basic attack. This protects players when they are entering the Spot Area and allows guilds to move more systematically. Expanded View Your view is expanded within all Spot Area maps, meaning you can zoom out further than you would in regular maps. This gives you a better perception of the full scale of the battle and lets you catch your enemy’s movements earlier. Respawning in GTW After becoming incapable of combat inside a Spot Area, you have multiple options for how and where you can respawn.   Requirements Respawn Location Options (default) Goddess Statue in a nearby city (automatic after 30 seconds) Having a Guild Tower Guild Tower Having a Base Camp installed by a Squire in your party Squire Base Camp Receiving the effects of Resurrection On the spot Using a Mysterious Crystal Receiving the effects of a Wide Resurrection Scroll   Using different respawn options makes combat generally more unpredictable, but it provides a good chance to turn the flow of the battle in your favor. Seizing Strategies Attacking guilds need to collect points in order to seize the Spot, and there are two ways of doing so. You can stay within the parameter of the Territory Tower and gain points per second according to your number of guild members on the Spot, or you can destroy one of the Amplifiers spread throughout the map to instantly gain 200 points. The defending guild, on the other hand, can reduce the points of the attacking guilds every second by staying near the Tower. Ultimately, the advantage goes to the guild with the most organized reactions to both the combat by the Tower and the Amplifier situation. Kicking Enemies to the City When the Spot is seized during a GTW session, all members not of the seizing guild are kicked to a nearby city. The new defending guild can use this time to place themselves inside the Spot Area according to their strategy, and attacking guilds can also prepare a new approach from the outside. Tactical Elements in the Spot Area There is a variety of tactical elements you can use inside the Spot Area.   Element Requirements Effects Territory Amplifiers Dealing the last blow (attacking guilds only) +200 points Damage and movement speed buff Boss Monsters Dealing the last blow (attacking guilds only) Damage taken reduced and immunity to knockback/knockdown GTW Items Using the item Installing combat objects and other beneficial effects Tree Root Crystals Dealing the last blow Different buffs according to the type of crystal   Class Strategies Every class has strong points that can give them an advantage in GTW combat. Here are some examples. 1) Templar Templars are not just strong support characters in GTW, they are the best battle leaders. Templar skills reach not just party members but guild members as well, so they are a valuable piece in keeping the guild strong and united. 2) Squire Squires are a crucial part of team if your guild wants to target multiple Spot Areas at once. When a Squire in your party installs a Base Camp, you can choose to respawn there if you become incapable of combat inside the GTW map. This allows you to quickly return to the battlefield or join the attack on a different Spot Area. 3) Scout All Scout-tree classes can learn the Cloaking skill, which is extremely useful for assessing your enemy’s strategy. Knowing in advance what your rivals are planning and how they are moving gives you a major advantage in battle. 4) Mounted Classes Only some classes can summon and mount Companions inside Spot Areas. One of the most decisive factors in the battlefield is mobility, so your guild’s mounted forces will always be an important part of the combat. GTW Restrictions The following is a list of restrictions that apply within all Spot Area maps. 1) Classes that can summon and mount Companions - Cataphract - Falconer - Hackapell - Hunter - Lancer - Schwarzer Reiter - Templar 2) Restricted skills (cannot be used) - Base Camp - Briquetting - Enchant Armor - Equipment Maintenance - Forgery - Gem Roasting - Identify - Item Awakening - Magnum Opus - Oblation - Portal - Portal Shop - Repair - Spell Shop - Switch Gender 3) Restricted consumables (cannot be used) - Anvil (all kinds) - Basic Warp Scroll - Blue Orb (all kinds) - Challenge Portal Scroll - EXP Card (all kinds) - Guild Tower - Monster Card Album (all kinds) - Popup Book (all kinds) - Red Orb (all kinds) - Skill Scroll (Barrier): restricted only within the Tower perimeter - Soul Crystal - Warp Scroll Note: - Elixir cooldown applies as 60 seconds. - Dispeller and Omamori cooldown applies as 30 seconds. 4) Restricted buffs (can be used, but characters under these buffs will not count towards gaining/reducing points) - Annihilation - Burrow - Cloaking - Mijin no Jutsu - Shadow Pool - Stop

Borutos Kapas - Future Plans

  Greetings Saviors! Today we would like to address some of the issues faced by players while participating in the new Borutos Kapas content and go over some of the improvements that are currently under preparation to resolve certain issues.     Invincibility upon Entry   We are planning to introduce a brief invincibility period for players who enter Sulivinas Lair to combat against Boruta. This invincibility buff will be removed when a player moves or uses a skill in order to give players some time to prepare for the battle ahead. This feature is currently undergoing internal testing and we are working as hard as we can to have in implemented into the game as soon as possible.   Expansion of Rank Rewards   We are planning to increase the number of players that are eligible to receive Rank rewards in Borutos Kapas, which will be applied to both Guild Individual Ranks. As an example, Individual Rank rewards will be expanded to be awarded to up to a 1,000 players who have participated in the raid.     Boruta’s HP Regeneration   The dev team is well aware that the HP regeneration mechanic in place for Boruta is one of the largest factors causing players to feel fatigued while participating in the Borutos Kapas raid. We are planning to remove HP regeneration for Boruta from Monday to Friday during weekdays.     Mark: Borutos Kapas   The effects of Mark: Borutos Kapas debuff will be increased considerably. The debuff is both a mark of honor and also a means to deter the top ranking guild from ranking 1st place again in the following week. However, we have recently become aware of players’ feedback that the Mark debuff was not as effective as we had intended it to be. We are currently looking into making adjustments to the effects of the Mark: Borutos Kapas debuff in order to provide a more balanced experience for our players.     Borutos Kapas Contribution Points   The following is the current methods for earning contribution points while in Sulivinas Lair for the Borutos Kapas raid.   ※ The content below is subject to updates and modifications.   Category Contribution Dealing damage to Boruta Yes Surviving in Sulivinas Lair Yes Being under certain gimmick effects in the area Yes Defeating other players in PvP No Having dealt the last blow to Boruta No Having equipped or used a specific item No Additional earnings proportionate to the number of Guild members in the area No     That will be all for today’s dev post on the issues and resolutions for Borutos Kapas. We want our players to know that we will do our best to keep monitoring and communicating with the player base to improve the quality of the provided contents for you to enjoy.   Thank you.     ※ The contents above are works that are currently in progress may be changed in the process of development.
