Developer’s Comment:

We’ve had a lot of feedback on Sou’s appearance, with many complaints about his look as a middle-aged warrior. That’s unfortunate, but we’ve updated this by changing Sou’s default look, and giving players a “Sou’s Wrinkles” item if they want him to look as originally intended.

 

We're giving this out as a scar item, meaning you unfortunately can’t also use things like a Battle Scar. We thank you for your understanding.

 

We’ve also updated Sou’s physique, so he looks more like other Vindictus characters and doesn’t seem so out of place.

 

[Misc.]

  • Added 1 default character slot.

      • Exquisite HP Potions used in Practice Mode are not actually consumed.
    • There are no rewards in Practice Mode, and your Departure Count won’t increase.

 

Developer’s Comment:

Unlike Raid Battles, Redeemers and Space Time Distortion Battles allow a maximum of 8 potions and revives to be used. The bosses in these battles also have more varied and challenging patterns than in Raid Battles, which can be intimidating for players on their first attempt.

 

Space Time Distortion Battles in particular can be a struggle because of the entry restrictions on stats, meaning players don’t get to experience these battles before they can meet those requirements. We hope that providing chances to experience these battles in Practice Mode will make it easier for first-timers.

It appears to have been very difficult to find auxiliary equipment for the look you want, even though auxiliary equipment outfits were added.
