Content Updates
[Content - Improvements]
  • Weekly content reset days were changed.
    • We changed the weekly content reset day from Mondays (00:00 UTC) to Sundays (00:00 UTC) to relieve some fatigue from the weekly contents and to also encourage more participation.
      • Applicable Weekly Contents
      • Weekly Quests
      • Guild Group Quests
      • ArchePass
      • Farmhand
      • Weekly rankings (Garden Rankings, Sportsfishing, Blue Ribbon)
  • Friend/Guild list can now be sorted the way you want.
    • When using the Community UI for Friend/Guild, you can now click on a tab to sort the list according to the category you select.
    • Friend Community
      • You can sort by name, faction, occupation, location, or server name in alphabetical order.
      • Levels are sorted in descending or ascending numerical order.
    • Guild Community
      • You can sort by name or occupation in alphabetical order.
    • Levels, Cumulative Prestige, and Weekly Prestige are sorted in descending or ascending numerical order.
    • However, the Guild Leader is always fixed to the top of the list.
      • We are planning on adding an auto-sorting feature for the Family Community as well in the future.
  • Vehicle & Ship destruction repair costs (Shatigon's Sand quantity) were adjusted.
    • The costs for repairing certain vehicles or ships were either too high or too low, so we adjusted the costs according to the tier, performance, or utility of each vehicle or ship.
  • The tier will be displayed on the Lunagem equipped on equipment.
    • The tier of the Lunagem wasn't straightforward before, and you needed to guess based on their effects. Therefore the tier of the Lunagem will now be displayed in the tooltip.
    • Crafting Lunagems
      • [Vivid]: Vivid Earth Lunascale: Mastery
      • [Splendid]: Splendid Fireglow/Copperglow/Waveglow/Galeglow/Earthglow Lunagem (excluding Splendid Sunglow/Evenglow)

  • Added a feature that allows you set Equipment Point restrictions when recruiting Raids. 
    • We added this feature to allow you conveniently recruit Raids based on Equipment Points, since we received feedback that it was a hassle to check each and every Raid Members's Equipment Points when recruiting for certain Raids.
    • You can select one of the following Required Equipment Points: 0, 5,000, 8,000, 10,000, 12,000, 16,000
  • Guild Mission Change will no longer make you accept a previously completed mission.
    • Guild Mission Change would consume Prestige and make you accept the same mission again, so we implemented this change so that you will no longer get the previous mission again.
  • The Warehouse Manager and Any-Post Owl can no longer be summoned near major quest NPC's at the Great Prairie of the West.
    • This was implemented to improve the issue where summoning the Warehouse Manager and Any-Post Owl near the major quest NPC's when starting Guardian Scramble would make it difficult to accept quests. This change will apply near the NPC's below.
      • Nalyn at Windwhip Temporary Camp
      • Bahti, Jubro, and Hanijin for each faction's base at the Great Prairie of the West.

  • The [Rotten Specialty Merchant] Specialty Preservation Bag Collector NPC location was changed for certain reigons. 
    • We received feedback that the NPC was too far from the Workbench for certain regions, so we moved the NPC closer to the Workbench.
    • This applies to the following regions.
      • Haranya: Hasla, Villanelle, Sunbite Wilds
      • Nuia: Sanddeep
  • The camera distance to the character will now be the same for all races in certain situations. 
    • We received feedback that there were situations (such as when entering Mirage Isle) where the camera distance would change depending on the race. The camera distance will now be fixed to 10m in these situations.
  • Players "On the Run" will now be directly sent to prison instead of going to Trial when they are Forcibly Awaiting Trial.
    • To prevent repeated trials through dying on purpose (by Guards for example) after jailbreaking, you will now get a "Permanent Jailbreak Traces" and "Wanted" effect when breaking out of prison with 50 or more Infamy Points. This will now send you directly to prison instead of Trial when Forcibly Awaiting Trial.
