On Wednesday, March 22nd, the next update will come to Vindictus and bring with it a new special dungeon, new outfits, the brand-new Alban Festival and countless improvements to make growing in power easier!
The Alban Festival update brings forward a special festival for you to practice your skills with the Spear Master and Wall Master mini-games!
Practice your aim with the Spear Master mini-game, throwing spears at pop-up targets. Hit 8 out of 10 targets before they hide again to move onto the next stage for greater rewards. The Wall Master mini-game faces you off against ten rows of oncoming walls with only a small gap to pass through. Get through them all to reach the next stage and fight for better rewards!
The more stages you get through, the more Festival Trophy's you'll earn, with a Festival Gold Trophy rewarded if you complete all the stages. Take those trophies to Allysse in the Malina Inn to exchange them for special Emblems, colorful headgear inspired by the good William Tell and more!
New Special Battle: Shrouded Truth
The Alban Festival Update gives us another special team-up boss fight. The Blood Lord of Ainle was a formidable foe on his own, but can you withstand his barrage of attacks with the skirmishing Assassin Ekinar backing him up?
Join up a party of up to 6 players and defeat the new dynamic duo for a chance at some powerful rewards, including a Masterpiece Gem Box, Season 3 Essence Items or a Special Dungeon: Enchant Pouch containing a random high-rank Enchant Scroll! You can complete the Shining Keaghan battle quest once per day, and only on Hard difficulty.
Easier Enchants and Enhancements
Among the numerous improvements to come with the Alban Festival update are massive changes to make Enchanting and Enhancement easier to do, especially for those still climbing up the levels and working with less powerful equipment.
On the Enchanting front, many enchant scrolls have seen their rank change, based on the Enchant's power. These Ranks also now mean more than just how powerful the Enchant is or how hard the Scroll is to find: the odds of success for Enchanting have been greatly improved for Rank A through Rank F, most prominently with low-rank Enchants boosted with Brynn Elixirs:
|Rank||0 Brynn Success Rate||100 Brynn Success Rate|
Enhancement has also been enhanced to make failed Enhancements less punitive and encouraging you to improve low level equipment. Gold costs have been reduced, Elixirs are needed on fewer items and penalties for Enhancing lower level items start much later, being able to reach +7 Enhancements of Level 20 items without no chance of a penalty or gold cost at all.
Penalties and costs will rise as more powerful Enhancement Stones are required, but no costs or penalties have been increased, with everything being easier for those still seeking to climb the ranks of Vindictus! We also have more sales, events and countless other improvements, so keep an eye out as the update comes next week!
