2. VIP/VVIP Service Benefit Improvements

  • You can no longer change the enchant and power infusion slots for items not equipped on the equip tab.
  • If you have set a separate enchant and power infusion slots on an equipped item, the set information will reset upon unequipping the item.

Developer's Notes:

In the process of implementing the equip tab extension and tab movement feature, there was a problem where the processing load would significantly increase by leaving the slot information in-use on the item.

We attempted various solutions to alleviate the issue and implement the function, but we decided that it was too difficult to implement the function while leaving the slot information. So, we deleted the slot change function of the item that's not equipped.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this bug. Please let us know what other things need to be improved after this update. We will improve them to further minimize any inconveniences.
