The 4ever Update: Detailed

  Greetings, Saviors!   We'd love to introduce our 4ever update in detail. Today's post will cover this large-scale update from A to Z.   Content   1. Equipment and Stat Revision   - Random Stats - Ichor Difficulty Adjustment - Dismantlement and Stat Transferring - Weapon Attacks by Type - Leather Armor Adjustment   2. New Items   - New Sub-weapon: Weapon Accessories - New Equipment: Ark - New Legend Equipment and Set Stats - New Unique Equipment 3. Combat System Revision   - Combat Formula - PvP Combat Formula   4. New Content   - Merge of Mercenary and Saalus Mission: Lv.400 Instanced Dungeon - Challenge Party Benefits - Goddess' Blessing Event       1. Equipment and Stat Revision   Random Stats    Currently, there are 4 kinds of equipment rarities (magic, rare, unique, legend) which grant random stats to the equipment when identified by a magnifying glass item. Magic and rare equipment is often neglected by MMORPG players because lower rarity typically means lower bonus stats for the equipment. Effective from the update of Episode 12, the upper limits of random stats are now equal regardless of rarity. On the other hand, the lower limits are set differentially. You can view the upper/lower limits in the chart below:   Item Rarity Stat Range (Min~Max)% Magic 10 ~ 100% Rare 40 ~ 100% Unique 80 ~ 100% Legend 80 ~ 100%    Now that the lower grades have a chance to receive maximum stats, we anticipate the saviors’ burden of spending hours in the field in order to obtain higher-grade equipment to be eased.    Equipment with Unique rarity has become far harder to obtain from looting, but the increased chance to gain better stats will compensate your efforts and time. Our dev team has been working on this modification of the random stat system to ensure pleasurable farming for players.   Types and Max Value of Random Stats    The dev team has also decided to reduce the value deviation of random stats. As a result, formulas using random stats are modified and there will be newly introduced stats on unidentified equipment while some of the pre-existing stats are deleted.   Additional Damage/DEF by type will no longer be granted on equipment and new stats ‘Additional Damage/Additional Damage Resistance’ will replace them. Existing Additional Damage/DEF by type stats on your equipment will be integrated into ‘Additional Damage/Additional Damage Resistance’ stats.  The new stats and the max value of them for equipment dropped after the 4ever update and Episode 12 are as follows:   Stat/Part Attack Defense Ability Support Attack by Type Add. Damage Attack Offset Critical Resistance Add. Damage Resistance Stat Stamina Looting Chance Critical Rate and 7 Others Max SP Armor 530 794 530 265 794 80 19 80 265 530 Shield/Sub/ One-handed 993 1489 993 497 1489 149 35 149 497 994 Weapon Accessory 497 745 497 249 745 75 18 75 249 498 Two-handed 1489 2233 1489 745 2233 224 53 224 745 1490   Please refer to the follow-up [Supplement] post for detailed stat information. * Attack value differs based on targets' armor (cloth, leather, plate), size (small, medium, large), and creature type    (ghost, plant, beast, demon, mutant, insect). * Attack Offset effect depends on targets' armor type and size. (Medium-type only) * There are 5 kinds of ability stats. * Critical Rate and 7 others: Critical Rate, Block Penetration, Block, Accuracy, Evasion, HP Recovery, and SP Recovery   2 New Magnifiers: Sandra's Magnifier, Sandra's Detailed Magnifier  2 new magnifier items will be introduced into the game. There will be ‘Sandra's Magnifier’ which allows you to re-roll the selected random bonus stats and ‘Sandra's Detailed Magnifier’ which allows you to re-roll the 'value' of the selected random stat.     These items are to become obtainable from [Goddess' Grace]. With the new magnifiers, we intend to ease saviors' burden of constantly re-identifying their equipment for better performance.                           Ichor Difficulty Adjustment    The Ichor system currently plays a large role in enhancing equipment performance. Unfortunately, this is often considered an obstacle to progress by saviors who face difficulty obtaining the desired Ichors. The system will become more player-friendly upon Episode 12 update.   Ichor Extraction    The chance of successful Ichor Extraction will be increased two-fold. This revision will facilitate acquiring Ichor from equipment with random bonus stats. We hope this can bring you a better experience with the Ichor system as Lv. 430 unidentified equipment offers far better stats.   Ichor Transmutation    The number of items required for Ichor Transmutation will be reduced 3 to 2.  Although transmutation was designed to offer players a concrete chance to obtain the Ichor that player desire, Ichor Extraction has always been the alternative. We anticipate more players to utilize Ichor Transmutation after this change.   Dismantlement                                                   Dismantling transcended equipment now provides bonus items depending on its transcendence level. 10% bonus rate will be added per transcendence level and you can obtain extra Nucle Powder and Sierra Powder.     Stat Transferring   As you know, awakening and enchanting equipment do not secure the certain stats and effects you wish to gain, but grant random effects. Therefore, replacing equipment can be a tough decision as bonus stats and effects are not transferable.    We are introducing a new system to transfer the additional effects gained from awakening and enchantment from one to another without any losses. You will soon be able to transfer equipment effects via the NPC in Miners’ Village, Vaidotas. Bonus stat transferring will cost a little silver. The receiving equipment must have the identical rarity, availability level, and part with the equipment you are extracting stats from.   Weapon Attacks by Type    Currently, each weapon type in ToS has a different average attack value. As we have noticed irrational imbalances among classes after the recent balance patch, there will be adjustments to weapon attack value.   Weapon Weapon Type Avg. Attack Ratio (Current) Avg. Attack Ratio (After Change) One-handed Sword One-handed Weapon 1 1.1 Rod 1 1.1 Crossbow 1 1.1 One-handed Blunt Weapon 0.9 1.1 One-handed Spear 1 1.1 Rapier 1 1.1 Dagger One-handed/ Sub-weapon 1.1 1.1 Pistol 1.1 1.1 Two-handed Sword Two-handed Weapon 1.2 1.3 Bow 1.2 1.3 Two-handed Blunt Weapon 1.08 1.3 Two-handed Spear 1.2 1.3 Staff 1.2 1.3 Cannon 1.3 1.3 Musket 1.3 1.3 Weapon Accessory Two-handed/ Sub-weapon - 0.66   We categorized weapons into 2 groups by one/two-handed and increased the average attack ratio based on the weapons with the highest value from each category.    Also, there will be changes which make the attack value ranges even wider to secure the unique feel of each weapon, which could have become less prominent in the case of equalized attack value.   Weapon Weapon Type Attack Min~Max Range (Current) Attack Min~Max Range (After Change) One-handed Sword One-handed Weapon 5% 3% Rod None None Crossbow 10% 3% One-handed Blunt Weapon 5% 1% One-handed Spear 5% 10% Rapier None None Dagger One-handed/ Sub-weapon 5% 8% Pistol 5% 8% Two-handed Sword Two-handed Weapon 10% 20% Bow 10% 20% Two-handed Blunt Weapon 10% 10% Two-handed Spear 10% 30% Staff None None Cannon 15% 50% Musket 15% 35% Weapon Accessory Two-handed/ Sub-weapon - None   One-handed weapons will be more reliable, dealing damage to foes steadily under any combat conditions with a small gap in the attack range. Two-handed weapons will be more effective with certain conditions met. For example, a player with a musket can actively reduce the large min ~ max attack range with the skill ‘Sniper's Serenity’. Plus, splash damage effect that attacks up to 3 foes is planned for cannons. We set the attack range wide so the weapon has a high potential with the effect.     Leather Armor Adjustment    Leather armor was originally designed to allow players to utilize rather aggressive combat styles while providing the lowest defensive performance compared to cloth and plate armor. As a new combat formula will be applied on PvP mode upon Episode 12 update, which does not include Critical limit value, leather armor will lose its strength in PvP mode. Leather armor’s DEF will be increased by 1.5 times to compensate its lost tactical feature.     Physical Defense Magic Defense Set Effect As-is To-be As-is To-be PvE PvP Cloth 100% 100% 200% 200% Magic Damage received -15% Magic Damage received -15% Plate 200% 200% 100% 100% Physical Damage received -15% Physical Damage received -15% Leather 100% 150% 100% 150% Damage +15% Critical Chance +20% Critical Chance Limit +10% Damage +15% Critical Chance +20%       2. New Items   New Sub-weapon: Weapon Accessories    A new sub-weapon, Weapon Accessories will be added.     A Weapon Accessory can be equipped on the sub-weapon slot while holding a two-handed weapon. This sub-weapon boosts the combat performance of the main two-handed weapon by providing extra Physical and Magic Attack stats. With Weapon Accessories, reinforce your two-handed weapons as you can for a one-handed weapon with a shield.                                                                Ichor and Set Stats are available for a weapon accessory. When applying Set Stats, the weapon accessory is considered as a ‘weapon’ just like shields. In addition, the cost for applying Set Stats on a weapon will decrease by half.   New Equipment: Ark     A new equipment, Ark will be added.    An Ark can be equipped on an Ark Slot and provide diverse additional stats. You can upgrade Arks by spending in-game materials and when it is upgraded to a certain level, it unlocks its special effects to help the player.                                                                         You will have your very first Ark as you go through Episode 12 and are soon able to acquire other uncommon Arks from content rewards.   New Legend Equipment and Set Stats   A new Lv.430 Legend equipment will be added. NPC Teliavelis in Fedimian will help you craft the new equipment if you bring the material item ‘Brikynite’ obtained from the newly introduced area.                                                         This new Legend equipment will embrace a higher level of attack and other random stats compared to Savinose Legva. You can visit NPC Vidotas to apply new Set Stats on your equipment.   Set 3 Parts equipped 4 Parts equipped 5 Parts equipped Sauk STR +66   INT +66 Block Penetration +331 Deals damage and knocks out nearby enemies for 1 sec. Increases damage you deal by 150% for 4 sec on landed skill.  - Skill Attack 5330%   - Overheat 3, Cooldown 30 sec   Unequipping Sauk set increases skill cooldown of other set stat skills by 100 sec.    Dragon Strength Lv 1 - Damage Increase Effect Duration +2 sec Essera CON +68 Critical Resistance +265 Gain a 40-sec 'Essera’s Composure' buff which resists all debuffs that require advanced removal.   Buff duration decreases by 5 sec and gain 'Essera’s Will' buff every time debuff resistance effect is activated.   - -4% damage taken per Essera’s Will stacked - Up to 5 stacks for Essera’s Will - Essera’s Will follows the Essera’s Composure duration Cooldown 100 sec   Dragon Strength Lv. 1 - Duration +10 sec Balinta Physical Critical Attack +1286   Magic Critical Attack +1286 HP Recovery +248   SP Recovery +248 Restore HP equaling to 50% of HP Recovery on landed Slash, Pierce, and Strike attack for 30 sec. Restore HP equaling to 25% of HP Recovery on other landed attack for 30 sec. Cooldown 100 sec   Dragon Strength Lv. 1 - Balinta Cooldown -2 sec every second when HP is at 100%     New Unique Equipment    New Unique equipment with fixed stats will be added. The equipment is obtainable at a low chance by hunting Elite monsters in the new Episode 12 areas.                                                                  The Elite monsters in stage 6-7 of the new Challenge also drop the Unique equipment. The drop rate is fairly low but it has better Ichor as compensation.     4. Combat System Revision   4-1. Combat Formula   Attack by Type Formula    We have thought that the formula for attack by type needs to be adjusted as the current formula tends to make players’ efforts to increase the attack value meaningless. Some attack values such as Slash attack rely on the equipment available for only certain classes, which results in an increasing burden for players to set more equipment. In order to prevent the issue and let players set equipment based on their tastes, all attack stats now depend on the armor, size, and creature type of the target.    Attack by type will be added to the damage increase value as +% form. The modified formula is as follow.   Formula (1)   Example   Conditions: Defender Lvl 420, Attacker ATK Value 2,000, Defender DEF Value 500   Steps: 1. 2,000(ATK Value) - 500(DEF Value) = 1,500 2. 1,500(from step 1) / (420(Defender Lvl) * 30) = 0.119 3. 0.119(from step 2) * 100 * 0.5 = 5.95%   Result: Damage Increase: 5.95% The following type stats are applied to Formula (1).   Offensive Stat Defensive Stat Attack against Cloth armored Target Attack Offset against Cloth armored Target Attack against Leather armored Target Attack Offset against Leather armored Target Attack against Plate armored Target Attack Offset against Plate armored Target Attack against Small-type Target None Attack against Medium-type Target Attack Offset against Medium-type Target Attack against Large-type Target None Attack against Ghost armored Target None Attack against Plant-type Target None Attack against Beast-type Target None Attack against Demon-type Target None Attack against Mutant-type Target None Attack against Insect-type Target None     Add. Damage Formula   All additional damage stats will be merged. 8 different values for additional damage and resistance each will be integrated into Additional Damage and Additional Damage Resistance. The property effects against additional damage will also be removed and if the target is not ‘non-property’, it receives +10% more damage and the formula has been simplified.   Formula (2)   The following type stats are applied to Formula (2).   Offensive Stat Defensive Stat Add. Damage Add. Damage Resistance     HP/SP Recovery Formula    HP/SP Recovery now depend on your max HP/SP. The higher max HP/SP you have, the more healing efficiency you can gain. The modified formulas are as follows.   Formula (3)   Formula (4)       In short, the maximum HP/SP you can restore at once is 20% of your total HP/SP.     4-2. PvP Combat Formula   Heal Control    Currently, the only way to interfere healing in ToS PvP mode is using CC skills directly upon the healing characters. Supporting characters are intended to take an important role in battle but we decided it is too restricting to interfere healing, so we are introducing new skill effects for some classes to inflict debuffs to reduce received healing. The skills will allow players prevent healing indirectly. Meanwhile, the victims can lift the debuffs with their skills making the whole battle more interesting.   The Classes to receive the heal control effect are 39, including new classes, and the detailed information for the skills can be viewed at the follow-up [Supplement] post.   Profession No. of Classes No. of Skills Max Effect Max Duration Swordsman 10 12 50% 10 sec Wizard 6 7 50% 15 sec Archer 9 11 69% 20 sec Cleric 3 3 30% 7 sec Scout 6 6 34.5% 7 sec     Buff/Debuff Control    There are abundant skills to grant buffs and debuffs in ToS and we decided to introduce skill effects into existing skills to nullify or worsen buffs/debuffs to enrich battle tactics.    The skills to receive buff control effects are 47, including skills for new classes, and the detailed information can be viewed at the follow-up [Supplement] post.   Profession No. of Classes No. of Skills Max Effect Max Removal Swordsman 14 15 75% 2 Wizard 4 5 50% 2 Archer 6 6 50% 1 Cleric 13 15 100% 2 Scout 6 6 100% 2      The skills to receive debuff control effects for allies are 29, including skills for new classes, and the detailed information can be viewed at the follow-up [Supplement] post.   Profession No. of Classes No. of Skills Max Effect Max Removal Swordsman 3 3 100% 1 on Self, 2 on Allies Wizard 3 3 100% 1 on Self, 2 on Allies Archer 8 8 100% 2 on Self Cleric 6 6 100% 2 on Self, 1 on Allies Scout 8 9 100% 1 on Self, 1 on Allies     Formulas for Critical Rate, Block, and Evasion    The current formula is significantly imbalanced and advantageous to the attacker. This leads players to except defensive elements when selecting equipment. To resolve this issue, we redesigned the formula as a symmetrical function. We anticipate a wider range of settings and tactics in PvP situations.    The modified formulas for [Critical Rate/Critical Resistance], [Block Penetration/Block], and [Accuracy/Evasion] as follows.   Formula (5)   Also, Block damage reduction rate will be changed to 30% from 60% and it will be 60% only while putting up a guard.  The attack stats [Critical Rate, Block Penetration, Accuracy] now have basic chances of activation. The chances are as follows.   Basic Chance of Activation Critical Rate 10% Block Penetration 70% Accuracy 90%   The formula to calculate the final value is as follows.   Formula (6)     Example   Conditions: Defender Lvl 420, Attacker Critical Rate 3,000, Defender Critical Resistance 1,500   Steps: 1. 3,000(Critical Rate) - 1,500(Critical Resistance) = 1,500 2. 1,500(from step 1) / (420(Defender Lvl) * 15) = 0.238 3. 0.238(from step 2) * 100 = 23.8 [Item Stat] 4. Plug in formula (6) = 21.9 4. 10(Basic chance of Critical Rat) + 21.9(from step 4) = 31.9%   Result: Critical Chance: 31.9% The following type stats are applied to Formula (6).   Offensive Stat Defensive Stat Critical Rate Critical Resistance Block Penetration Block Accuracy Evasion   Evasion - Level Advantage   The dev team wished to raise the value of character leveling by offering more benefits to high level characters in order to encourage players to level up.  There will be an advantage granted for Evasion of the character with a higher level than the opposing character based on their level difference. This additional Evasion value will be applied on the final value with a multiple operation.   Here are examples of additional evasion value.   Attacker Defender Lvl Attacker Lvl Lvl Difference Add. Evasion Player 430 400 30 60% 410 400 10 20% 405 400 5 10% 401 400 1 2% 340 310 30 60% 320 310 10 20% 315 310 5 10% 311 310 1 2%             5. New Content   New Instanced Dungeon added     Saalus and Mercenary Post Missions will be merged with a Instanced Dungeon for easy and quick access to the content.   1. Admission     The new Instanced Dungeon is for characters with Lv. 400 or above and you can enter via the Level Dungeon NPC in each city.    Each character can clear the dungeon 3 times a day and you can reset the count by using [Instanced Dungeon Reset Voucher].     2. Locations   Fields for the added instance dungeon differ each day.   Day of the Week Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Dungeon Royal Mausoleum Crystal Mine Seven Valley Catacombs Canyon Belt Castle (Saalus) Siauliai     3. Rewards    The new instanced dungeon rewards players with EXP, Talt, and Blessed Pieces. The rewards will be given depending on the completion rate, except Blessed Piece.    The reward items from [Mercenary Mission] will now be obtainable from field. The reward items from Crystal Mine Mission are obtainable from Lv.270 field dungeons.   Challenge Party Benefits    A drop bonus is given depending on the number of members participated in the party. The modified reward system for challenge will be applied on the new Episode 12 areas.   Challenge Stage No. of Members Item Drop Bonus Remarks Under 5 3 2x Apply to locations for Lv.420 4 3x 5 4x Above 6 2 2x 3 3x 4 4x 5 5x      The Elite monsters appearing in Challenge Mode Stage 6 in the new areas will drop the new Unique equipment, providing players more chance to acquire fine equipment and to enjoy group plays.     Unique Casual Mode: Goddess' Blessing    A casual mode was added for single players. However, the rewards from it were not satisfying enough, resulting in a low motivation for players to participate in the mode. Now that Goddess’ Blessing Event will be added, which begins upon clearing a dungeon for 60 seconds offering more rewards, players would acquire more valuable items from the content.  The new event is available via the icon at the top right corner of the screen.                                                     We expect to raise the interest in consuming the content by offering a chance to obtain valuable items with a little silver spent. The event will not continue once the player leaves the dungeon.   That will be all for this post. We appreciate your interest in our 4ever update. Thank you.   * The information disclosed above relates to works currently in progress and are subject to change with future development.

The 4ever Update: New Class Skills and Balancing Preview

Greetings, Saviors!   Today we would like to give you a more detailed look at the five new Classes that will be added to the game with the upcoming 4ever update.          Blossom Blader   The Blossom Blader is a branch of the Swordsman Class that has been honed and developed in a faraway continent to the east. They have opted not only for efficiency in battle but also graceful movement, leading to a style of swordplay that stresses the importance of ‘stance’.     Flowering   Applies [Flowering] debuff to enemies in front. The [Flowering] debuff stacks with Blossom Blader skills hitting the target and provides additional damage when using Blossom Blader skills. Flowering: Gust   Attribute that increases critical chance while attacking targets under [Flowering] debuff while reducing the amount of additional damage they receive from [Flowering]. Falling Blossom   Moves the player instantaneously to a nearby enemy affected by [Flowering] debuff and deal damage. [Flowering] debuff is removed once the enemy is struck by Falling Blossom and the target receives additional damage and becomes afflicted with a status ailment. Falling Blossom: Imprison   Applies an additional [Silence] debuff go enemies with [Flowering] debuff of 3 stacks or higher. Meditate   Reduces incoming damage by 50% while casting and increases the damage of critical attacks in proportion to the time spent casting. Taking a certain amount of damage while casting will cause the skill to be interrupted and cause penalties for the caster. Meditate: Flying Sword   Decreases the cooldown for the Flying Sword skill when used after Mediate has been cast. Meditate: Falling Blossom   Falling Blossom can be cast immediately when used after Meditate and adds 3 stacks of [Flowering] debuff.

Flying Sword   Summon multiple swords to attack the target.

Flash   Charges forward to quickly stab enemies in the player’s path. Flash: Flurry   Flash’s skill cooldown is reduced when critical occurs from using Flash (there is a separate cooldown for the Attribute as well). Blossom Slash   Hide yourself and slash a single target multiple times before revealing yourself again.   Blossom Slash       Terramancer   Rocks may eventually crumble, but they never permanently perish in that they are returned to nature in the end. Terramancers spend great time and effort in order to link with the Earth because of this but they do not worship the Earth Goddess Zemyna. Their spirituality is more in tune with nature itself than with the Goddesses worshipped in the Kingdom.     Terramancer: Sand Cloud   Ignores the damage reduction effect of Petrify debuff and adds additional critical chance. Also applies [Sand Cloud] debuff on targets when hit with Terramancer skills. Sand Blast   Blasts the target with sand. Sand Blast: Explosion   An explosion is caused when critical hit occurs with Sand Blast and causes Sand Blast to damage nearby enemies in proportion to the amount of damage dealt. Sand Wall   Raise a wall of sand from the ground. The wall can be passed by anyone, but it slows down the movement speed of enemies when they walk through. Implosion   Causes a destructive resonance from within the target’s body for damage. Ignores a part of the target’s Magic DEF and causes additional damage against targets wearing Plate armor. Critical damage occurs against targets under [Petrify]. Implosion Stone Shower   Shoots rock fragments towards the direction the player is faced in. Enemies are hit with consecutive hits. Stone Shower: Stun   Provides a chance to stun enemies hit by [Stone Shower] for a 2-second duration. Rolling Stone   Summon a large boulder to roll. The boulder is removed and damages the enemy when coming into contact. The skill does not need to be fully charged but a full charge increases the damage dealt. Rolling Stone: Trample   Makes Rolling Stone ignores Magic DEF of enemies in proportion to attribute level. Rolling Stone Horned Golem   Summon an Earth Golem that charges ahead to damage enemies in its path. [Arts] Horned Golem: Circular Damage   The AoE of Horned Golem is turned circular from which a gush of sand rises. Slows the movement speed of enemies passing through the area.       Arbalester   Arbalesters were founded during the reign of King Rael. They started out as a group who studied the art of homing arrows and their research had progressed drastically by the time of King Rael II during which the Kingdom begun funding their studies. Due to this financial support, the Arbalester were incorporated into the Kingdom’s royal army.   Arbalester: Destruction   Increases Physical Attack and Block Penetration values when the player has a dagger equipped as a sub-weapon. The effects increase in proportion to the attack value of the equipped dagger. Also provides the chance to remove an enemy buff when attacking. Arbalester: Precision   Increases the accuracy of attacks when the player has a shield equipped as a sub-weapon. Also provides a chance to automatically fire homing arrows when attacking. Escape   Swiftly dash backwards then fire homing arrows. Evasion chance is increased while dashing and increases the caster’s movement speed temporarily when cast. Escape: Shielding   Increases block rate instead of evasion when shield is equipped. [Mark] debuff is applied on enemies when a successful block occurs. Guided Shot   Shoots a homing arrow on enemies in front and leaves a [Mark] on them. Enemies under the [Mark] debuff receive increased damage from homing arrows. Fanwise Shot   Shoots multiple arrows to a fan-shaped area. Fanwise Shot: Additional Shots   Homing arrow is fired when Fanwise Shot hits an enemy under [Mark] debuff. Dark Judgement   Shoots an arrow on a targeted enemy then fires a homing arrow. [Arts] Dark Judgement: Dark Curtain   Adds Dark property to attacks with [Dark Judgement] and leaves a [Mark] on enemies hit by Dark Judgement. Dead Zone   Shoots multiple arrows skyward and make them rain down on enemies. Shining Burst   The player spins around for the duration of the key press and shoots arrows at enemies around the player. The player remains mobile during skill use and additional hit occurs against enemies afflicted with [Mark] debuff. Arbalester’s Precision, Dead Zone and Shining Burst in a combo       Crusader   Crusaders begun during King Ousel’s rule when the Grand Cathedral was completed. The Kingdom had suffered from many civil wars up to this point and the Crusaders were formed in order to protect the Kingdom’s religious heritage in the times of turmoil. Crusaders equip themselves with heavy armor overlain with cloth adorned with religious symbols. Most Crusaders have died during the tragedy that is Medzio Diena and there is all but few remaining scattered across the Kingdom at the current time.   Chant   Receive the favor of the Goddesses to choose between two different buffs.   - Goddess’ Protection: Activates the restoration effects with Crusader skills. - Goddess’ Wrath: Increases the damage of Crusader skills and Magic ATK. Restoration effects of Crusader skills are diminished or removed completely. [Arts] Chant: Goddess’ Blessing   Applies the buff [Goddess’ Blessing] to activate both [Goddess’ Protection] and [Goddess’ Wrath] simultaneously but with diminished efficacy. Crusader using a Chant Holy Smash   Strike with a blunt weapon imbued with divine power causing an explosion.   - Goddess’ Protection: Provides restoration when the caster is near the enemy struck with Holy Smash. - Goddess’ Wrath: Damages enemies around the target struck with Holy Smash.

Divine Protection: Defend   Reduces the damage received for allies within [Divine Protection]’s area of effect while Goddess’ Protection or Goddess’ Wrath is activated.       Rangda   One of the fortunate things to have happened after Medzio Diena is that the Rangda have taken up arms against the invading demon forces. Up to this point, the Rangda have had held both the Goddesses and demons as divine beings and preferred to worship Giltine over all other Goddesses. Their religious beliefs were frowned upon by the clergymen of the Kingdom but since their traditions predate that of the Kingdom’s religious practices, their sacrilege was overlooked and they were left free to pursue their traditions independent of the Kingdom’s rule due to their historical value. What caused them to change as the drastic shift in the power dynamics of the divines that occurred following Medzio Diena. Despite their peculiar beliefs, the Rangda wanted to see the balance of power restored and until then they have decided to battle against the demon forces.   Luka   Attack the enemy for continuous damage. The duration of the damage increases in proportion to the number of debuffs on target. Kutukan   Applies [Chaotic Curse] to target. [Chaotic Curse] debuff turns the enemy into a [Kepa], disables their HP/SP recovery and causes target to deal continuous damage to nearby enemies. Kutukan: Remove Buff   Grants a chance to remove buffs on targets affected by Kutukan. The number of buffs removed increases in proportion to the attribute level. Kutukan Penyerapan   Increases the damage of caster’s Dark property attacks. Also increases the stacks of [Lethargy] and [Movement Speed Reduction] debuffs applied on target with Rangda skills. [Arts] Penyerapan: Siphon Life Force   Restores the caster’s health in amounts proportionate to the number of debuffs on nearby enemies. Barong   Controls a tamed Barong to follow the caster. The Barong attacks nearby enemies for the duration of its summon and has the chance to remove enemy buffs when attacking. Barong: Buff Eater   The caster receives a random buff every time the Barong removes an enemy buff.   - Attack Buff: Increases damage dealt with increasing buff stack. - Defense Buff: Reduces incoming damage with increasing buff stack. - Utility Buff: Increases movement speed with increasing buff stack. Keletihan   Causes enemies within area of effect to become lethargic. [Lethargy] debuff decreases the target’s resistance against accuracy, evasion and critical attacks. Efficacy increases in proportion to the stack of [Keletihan: Lethargy] debuff. Keletihan: Added Effect   Provides additional effect depending on the number of Keletihan stacks.   - 3 Stacks: Curse debuff for 10 second duration - 4 Stacks: Silence debuff for 3 second duration - 5 Stacks: Stun debuff for 3 second duration Rawa   Creates a swamp in front of the caster. Reduces the movement speed of enemies passing through the swamp and the reduction amount increases the longer they remain on the swamp. Rawa: Fatigue   Increases the stack of [Keletihan] debuff every 3 seconds on enemies standing on Rawa.

Update Preview Pt. 3: Hunting Grounds & Field Boss

Greetings, Saviors.   Today we would like to introduce you two more updates coming your way!   - New Hunting Grounds: Outer Wall Sewers - New Field Boss and Field Boss Reward Changes       - Click here for Update Preview Pt. 1: Arts System (Link) - Click here for Update Preview Pt. 2: Guild Housing & Legend-grade Equipment (Link)       Outer Wall Sewers (Recommended Level: 400)     In a time when the Kingdom was prosperous, its people flocked towards the Kingdom's Capital in search of gold and glory. To accommodate the shift in population, King Taniel the First had commissioned the building of the Kingdom's sewer system. The Kingdom's sewer systems were constructed by the finest architects the Kingdom had to offer along with the help of the Kedora Merchant Alliance over the course of many years. The Outer Wall Sewers is one of the many different areas present in the Kingdom's sewer system and was built specifically to provide clean water for the soldiers guarding the Kingdom's outer walls.     While most the Kingdom lay in ruins after Medzio Diena, the Outer Wall Sewers remained miraculously intact. Some survivors had taken refuge in the depth of the sewers with the oncoming demon invasion but no one knows what has become of them.     Just as the remaining people were starting to forget about its existence, the Outer Wall Sewers is discovered once again by adventurers. With this, the Savior ventures into the wretched sewers, drawn by the loathsome screams of terrible beasts that lie within.   Venture and find out what secrets remain locked away in the depths of the Outer Wall Sewers.       Lv. 420 Hunting Grounds Boss Misrus   Lv. 420 boss monster Misrus   The new Lv. 400 Hunting Grounds has a special area that is sealed away and cannot be entered by normal means. This is the Misrus' chamber where it silently awaits the arrival of its next prey.     You can enter the boss area through the Chamber Entry Device, and you will be prompted to choose a difficulty upon entry. Defeating Misrus will yield different amount of rewards depending on the difficulty.     Misrus is a two-headed dog created by the powers of the Demon King. It viciously attacks anyone that approaches with its ceaseless Psychokinesis and Poison-property attacks.   Without the suppressor, Misrus' attack grows even more fierce.   Misrus has its power repressed by the Suppressor Device built by the Chesha who live in the sewers. The Suppressor loses its efficacy after a certain duration and Misrus' power grows, making the fight even more difficult. Use the various objects scattered around the Outer Wall Sewers to gain an advantage in the battle against Misrus.       Boss Challenges   Challenges available while fighting Misrus   Players can take part in challenges while battling Misrus. After defeating Misrus, players will be able to obtain a single Outer Wall Sewers Legend Cube and Spirit Fragment: Misrus in equal amount to the successfully completed challenges.   Misrus Spirit Fragment     You can obtain the recipe for new Unique gear by collecting Spirit Fragment: Misrus     Players will be able to obtain an Outer Wall Sewers Legend Cube when defeating Misrus. This cube will contain either a Unique equipment recipe, Magic Stone, Spirit Fragment: Misrus, Misrus Card, Enraged Misrus Card or Misrus' Chain, which is an ingredient used in crafting the new Misrus gear.       Outer Wall Sewers Rewards and New Set Stats     New Set Stats and Ingredient   Along with the new Set Stats available with the new Misrus Unique gear, Misrus' Chain item will be added to be used as an ingredient in adding Set Stats to your new equipment.   Atikha Passive effect.

The ingredients used in crafting this new equipment can be obtained by defeating the Lv. 400 monster in the area.   Misrus shares its entry count with the bosses in Irredian Shelter.

All participating users can donate a certain amount of Silver for a chance to receive the rewards that are dropped when the Demon Lord is defeated. The Silver spent in participation is distributed among the top 5 parties that have contributed to defeating the Demon Lord.   This event is ended when either 5 minutes have passed or 2 Legend-grade equipment is distributed to participating players.       Demon Lord Moringponia: New Rewards   Reward List Moringponia Headdress Storage Case Moringponia Unqiue Weapon Selection Box Mystic Encyclopedia: Swordsman Vol. 1 Moringponia Unique Armor Selection Box Mystic Encyclopedia: Swordsman Vol. 2 Recipe – Morningponia Headdress Mystic Encyclopedia: Swordsman Vol. 3 Mystic Page Mystic Encyclopedia: Wizard Vol. 1 Goddess Support Box: Punishment Mystic Encyclopedia: Wizard Vol. 2 Goddess Support Box: Protection Mystic Encyclopedia: Wizard Vol. 3 Goddess’ Blessed Gem Mystic Encyclopedia: Archer Vol. 1   Mystic Encyclopedia: Archer Vol. 2   Mystic Encyclopedia: Archer Vol. 3   Mystic Encyclopedia: Cleric Vol. 1   Mystic Encyclopedia: Cleric Vol. 2   Mystic Encyclopedia: Cleric Vol. 3   Mystic Encyclopedia: Scout Vol. 1   Mystic Encyclopedia: Scout Vol. 2   Mystic Encyclopedia: Scout Vol. 3         Moringponia Set Stats   Aqkrova Casts a red spell circle.

Because of this, we have decided to remove the lower level Field bosses and merge their rewards with the remaining Field Bosses in the game.   However, this would cause the drop rates of certain items to be much too low for certain items that are deemed more vital to the gameplay. These items are planned to be included as rewards in other contents that the game provides in the near future.       * All features showcased above are works in progress and are subject to change with future developments.

Introduction     Guild Housing is a new casual content planned to be added in Tree of Savior where players can decorate their Guild Hangout using various knick-knacks. It also provides different methods by which players can develop their Guild for more Guild-oriented activities within the game.       2. Contents   Players can now customize their Guild Hangout with decorations and add research facilities to earn extra in-game benefits through the Guild.     Decorations   - Guilds that have expanded their Hangout over Lv. 2 can purchase Housing decorations and related facilities through the Hangout Manager NPC. - Purchased goods can be placed in the Guild Hangout as decoration.     <Purchasing of Decorations>   There are 4 different Guild Housing Points available that you can use various decorations and facilities that can be installed in the Guild Hangout.   Housing Points displayed in the [Hangout UI]   Housing items can be purchased from the Hangout Manager NPC and they will be provided to the players as items placed in their character’s inventory.   Various housing items available at the Guild Housing Shop   A Guild Housing Item     <Edit Mode>   When your Guild Hangout is at Lv. 2 and above, you will be able to access the Edit Mode where you can place various housing decorations and facilities by clicking on the house-shaped icon to the bottom-left corner of the minimap.   Edit Mode icon available in the Guild Hangout   With Edit Mode activated, you will be able to install, move and remove various housing objects and facilities.   A player installing a bench     Guild Laboratory   With the Guild Hangout Level at 3 or above, you will be able to install laboratories to conduct in the various fields of research that grant benefits to your Guild members.     <Weapon Laboratory>   Purchasing and installing a Weapon Laboratory can provide the following benefits.   Research Effect Special Weaponry - Plant Increases damage against Plant-type enemies Special Weaponry - Insect Increases damage against Insect-type enemies Special Weaponry - Beast Increases damage against Beast-type enemies Special Weaponry - Mutant Increases damage against Mutant-type enemies Special Weaponry - Devil Increases damage against Devil-type enemies     <Armor Laboratory> Purchasing and installing an Armor Laboratory can provide the following benefits.   Research Effect Cloth Armor - Material Reduces damage from monsters in proportion to number of equipped cloth armor Leather Armor - Material Reduces damage from monsters in proportion to number of equipped leather armor Plate Armor - Material Reduces damage from monsters in proportion to number of equipped plate armor Cloth Armor - Function - Increases SP recovery in proportion to the number of equipped cloth armor - Grants chance for additional SP recovery in proportion to the number of equipped cloth armor every 20 sec Leather Armor - Function - Increases the maximum STA in proportion to the number of equipped leather armor - Reduces the cost of STA while dashing in proportion to the number of equipped leather armor Plate Armor - Function - Increases HP recovery in proportion to the number of equipped plate armor - Grants the chance for additional HP recovery in proportion to the number of equipped plate armor every 20 sec     <Property Laboratory> Purchasing and installing a Property Laboratory can provide the following benefits.   Research Effect Theory - Fire Increases the effect of additional Fire-property damage Theory - Ice Increases the effect of additional Ice-property damage Theory - Lightning Increases the effect of additional Lightning-property damage Theory - Poison Increases the effect of additional Poison-property damage Theory - Dark Increases the effect of additional Dark-property damage Theory - Holy Increases the effect of additional Holy-property damage Theory - Earth Increases the effect of additional Earth-property damage Theory - Psychokinesis Increases the effect of additional Psychokinesis-property damage     Guild Laboratories can be expanded by using Guild Funds and Guild Mileage. The levels of laboratories can be increased through this process and the efficacy of the research results also increase with level.   Laboratory Expansion UI   Research levels can be increased through the Laboratory UI by investing Guild Funds.   Laboratory UI   The effects of research can be activated either for an individual member through the use of Guild Contribution points or for the whole Guild by spending Guild Funds. Effects activated for individual players only apply 50% of the effects. * Effects earned through Research is not applied in PvP environments.   Individual and Group activation buttons       Others     <Crafting Workshop>   Crafting Workshops can be added started from Guild Hangout Lv. 2 by using Guild Funds and Guild Mileage. Building a Crafting Workshop will also raise the maximum Housing Points that can be accumulated. We will also be adding items exclusive to the Crafting Workshop and more will be revealed with future updates.     <Guild Farm>   Players will also be able to grow crops in the Guild Hangout after reaching Hangout Lv. 2. * A single plot of farmland will be provided to the Guild inventory once the Guild Hangout level reaches 2.   Additional farm plots can be purchased through the Hangout Manager and using the farm plot item will let you place the plot in any possible location of the Guild Hangout. * A maximum of 2 farm plots can be placed.   Farming changes in the following ways when Guild Hangout Lv. 2 is reached.   Guild Hangout Level Farming Method Lv. 1 Use seeds on pre-existing farm plots within the Hangout. Lv. 2 - Install farm plot items in desired locations - Use seed items on installed farm-plots   Players will be able to purchase the Farm Manager NPC Contract from the Housing Shop. Having the Farm Manager NPC will give the Guild various bonuses in farming. We are planning to develop and introduce new farming related contents and systems in the future that we will reveal to you with future dev blog posts.     <Guild Shop> A Guild Shop will be added and players will be able to purchase various items through the Hangout Manager NPC.   Items can be purchased using Contribution Points at the Guild Shop       Legend-grade Equipment   In our earlier dev post, we have mentioned that we will increase the means for which our players will be able to obtain end-game equipment. We wanted to make Legend-grade equipment available to farm from each of the game’s different content in order to increase the ways in which the different types of players can enjoy the game.   However, we have also come to acknowledge the fact that the current equipment upgrade system in Tree of Savior is plagued with a more fundamental problem where the myriad customization options available make the farming process overly fatiguing and hinders player enjoyment. So we have decided to head towards a different direction than previously announced.   A flowchart of the current equipment system in Tree of Savior   In the game’s current state, the addition of new gear causes more worry than intrigue for players. To alleviate the issue to a certain extent, we have decided not to add any more new “prefixed” gear during the current Episode other than the already existing Savinose Legva and Skiaclipse Varna gear.   All rewards obtainable from the upcoming content additions will be either ingredient for equipment set stats, Unique-grade equipment or other core rewards such as talt, silver, shards, etc. New set stats that can be added using these ingredients will be applicable to both Savinose Legva and Skiaclipse Varna equipment.   With the aforementioned changes, we hope to increase the accessibility for our Legend-grade equipment and also relieve the players from the stress that comes with upgrading their equipment.   The ingredients obtained from Field Bosses and Solo Raids can be used to apply set stats on both Savinose and Skiaclipse Varna equipment. However, the set stats unique to each type of Legend-grade gear will not applicable to the other.   Equipment Savinose Legva Skiaclipse Varna Basic Set Stats Rykuma Smugi Corup Goduma Bendrinti Gymas Apsauga   Field Boss Set Stats Applicable for both equipment Solo Raid Set Stats Applicable for both equipment       Equipment Customization   Remnants of Bernice   Remnants of Bernice dungeon currently provides players with Enchant Jewels as a reward but the amount of time and effort required to obtain one through the content far surpasses the item’s current market value due to the randomness of monster placement and other problems. We have decided to implement two major changes to Remnants of Bernice in order to resolve this issue which are:    - To fix the monster-type of boss monsters that appear  - To increase the weekly rewards obtainable through the content     Golden Socket   Golden Sockets are items that let players add a socket to their equipment regardless of the item’s remaining potential. Adding sockets to one-handed weapons are relatively cheap while adding a fourth or fifth socket to a two-handed weapon can cost players up to 20,000,000 silver. To combat this, we will be drastically reducing the cost of adding sockets through the use of Golden Sockets.       Content Changes Increased Rewards Remnants of Bernice Enchant Jewel cost reduced (Unit: Remnants of Bernice Coins) Rare: 90 -> 40 Unique: 200 -> 150 Legend: 4500 -> 1200 Cost Reduction Golden Sockets Socket addition fee reduced 300% -> 100%       * All features showcased above are works in progress and are subject to change with future developments.
