1. 2 New Friendship Skills

■ Friendship Skills

  • Added 2 new Friendship skills.
    • Destined: Rain of Steel (Sylas & Belle)
    • Destined: Blade Barrage (Fiona & Lann)
  • By reaching the Destined rank with a mercenary in the lounge, you can learn their Friendship Skill.

2. Raid Passport System

■ Raid Passport Extraction

  • Added the Raid Passport system.
    • This system lets you extract departure counts from the hardest 5 raid battles and use them in the easiest 7 raid battles like Departure Licenses.
    • For example, you can extract departure counts from the harder Royal Castle Topaz Hall and Royal Castle Dungeon raids, and get additional departures for the easier Surprise Attack, Brilliant Lugh, and other battles that you've used all departure counts for.
    • You can use the Raid Passport system after reaching the minimum level requirement for entering each raid.
    • You can extract from up to 5 battles per account.
    • When extracting passports, any bonus departure counts from VIP and VVIP services are also extracted. However, bonus departure counts from events are not extracted.
    • Extracted passports can be used until the next day's departure count reset. After the reset, you can extract and use passports again.
Developer's Notes:
Previously, the raids available to lower-level mercenaries were slightly limited.
The game is structured in such a way that you can depart for more raids as you gain better gear and stats. Thus, when you were still progressing your character, you could only play until you hit the limit for the easier raids you had access to.
The Raid Passport system gives players more flexibility when leveling and gearing up their characters by allowing bonus departures for easier raids by deducting departures from the harder raids.

Developer's Notes:
We checked the status of enchant scroll drops based on what players suggested. Considering various changes such as increasing the level cap and making raids into normal battles, we increased the drop rates. We express our sincere gratitude for the feedback you provided.

 

  • Fixed the issue where you would sometimes not receive rewards from a battle that restarts, if the party leader was changed because the previous party leader's client was closed, during a battle with multi-process turned on.

Developer's Notes:

While this was a bug that has been occurring ever since the initial multi-process update, fixing it has been greatly delayed as we could not find clues in resolving the issue. We sincerely apologize if you experienced the aforementioned issue after the party leader changed. If the issue occurs after the update this time, please report it through customer support. We will try hard to keep tracking down and fixing the issue.

Developer's Notes:

We lowered the power of some characters based on analysis of each character's damage, battle contribution, etc. after the character balance adjustments in August.
While each character is different in being stronger or weaker in certain battles, Lynn using Battleshade was much stronger than other characters in many battles. We would like to note that the current adjustment targets are not the entire scope of the changes. We would like to apologize that we were not able to bring balance adjustments to more characters, due to the development schedule. We will try hard so that balance adjustments don't come in late in future patches, either.
