[Content Updates]

● Added a supplier of Explorer's Flute/Lute.
○ You can now purchase Explorer's Flute/Lute from the weapon shop.
■ So far, you could only get an "Explorer's Flute/Lute" through hunting if you lost it after first receiving it during a quest or when you failed to get the option you wanted. However, you can now purchase this item from a Weapon Merchant.

● Changed how the "Crimson Rift" quests are accepted.
○ Combined the existing "Crimson Rift" quests into one.
■ It was inconvenient to accept the "Crimson Rift" quests, as they started at midnight and had to be accepted 4 times according to schedule.
■ The 4 quests can now be accepted at once just like the "Weakened Tower" quests, reducing the time taken to accept and join the quests.

● Changed the maximum stacks of all Enhancers.
○ Changed the maximum stacks of all Enhancers from 100 to 1,000.
■ Increased the maximum stacks of all Enhancers, including Exalted Hiram Infusion, to 1,000.
■ However, the maximum stacks of all Boss Infusions will remain unchanged, and we will keep making improvements on the insufficient Bag space issue due to consumables.

● Changed the Enhancer opening time and the Synthesis cast time.
○ Removed cooldown for opening Enhancers and decreased Synthesis cast time from 3 sec to 1.5 sec.
■ The cooldown for opening Enhancers had already been adjusted to 0.5 sec with the March 31st updates, but there was feedback that Synthesis was still slow. Hence we have removed the cooldown for opening Enhancers and halved the Synthesis cast time, from 3 sec to 1.5 sec.
■ Although it may be difficult to make immediate improvements on the overlapping Synthesis materials and Synthesis quantity issues, but we will try to come up with a mid to long term improvement plan.

● Increased the Faction Competition rewards.
○ Increased the Eastern/Western Hiram weekly quest rewards and eased the quest completion conditions.
■ Based on our survey results, initial improvements were made on the Diamond Shores - Reedwind - Sungold Fields - Exeloch weekly quests. However, as required weekly quests were increased due to reward increase, secondary improvements will be made to Eastern/Western Hiram quests.
■ The quest completion condition of defeating 200 monsters per quest was decreased to defeating 100 monsters to reduce your fatigue. The reward for "Mammoth" and "Treant" daily quests was increased from Brilliant Hiram Awakening Scroll x10 to x20, and a "Decrystallization Scroll" was added as a "Waterfall Stairs" weekly quest completion reward to reduce the pressure of awakening Glorious equipment.

● Adjusted the limitation in the number of participants allowed to enter the Garden per faction to 200.
