    • 1415 – 1474: Damage to NPCs increased by 15%, damage received from NPCs decreased by 30%
  • The Mokoko Challenge will also extend up to 1475.

Ability Stone Upgrades

Added a system that allows players to upgrade Relic Ability Stones all the way to Ancient. Upgrading Ability Stones increases the Vitality of the base effect and the Vitality of the facet level bonus. The Engraving Effect doesn’t change and remains the same upon upgrade.

There are 4 levels, and each level requires different upgrade materials and player Item Level to complete. Materials for upgrading to all 4 levels can be earned in the Kayangel Abyssal Dungeon. The materials for the fourth level (Book of Judgement) can only be obtained from Kayangel Hard.

  • Upgrading to Level 1 requires Light Spear & Gold
  • Upgrading to Level 2 requires Crystal of Order & Gold
  • Upgrading to Level 3 requires Brilliant Orb & Gold
  • Upgrading to Level 4 (Ancient) requires Book of Judgement & Gold

Upgrades take place at the Ability Stone Faceting NPC. If all requirements (level and materials) are met, the upgrade can be conducted to a target stage by skipping the stages in between. The quantity of the materials required is cumulative.

At the Light-Reflecting Mirror NPC, you can exchange upgrade materials into higher level materials. The conversion rates are:

  • Light Spear x9 converts to Crystal of Order x1
  • Crystal of Order x7 converts to Brilliant Orb x1
  • Brilliant Orb x5 converts to Book of Judgement x1

General Updates

  • New Card Pack versions have been added, which include ‘Abyss Legendary’ card packs. Legendary Card Pack II allows a selection between original ‘Legendary’ packs or new ‘Abyss Legendary’ packs, which include Demon Legion Commander cards. The new cards can be obtained from in-game activities and the in-game store.
  • Updated the daily log-in reward track.
  • The Text-to-speech setting is now automatically enabled when using the Game Entry Narration accessibility feature.
  • Increased the daily “Add Item” restrictions for Market/Auction House from 20 to 40 items.
  • Player Report feature has been integrated to the Guest Book list. To report, go to the ‘Writing Status’ list in the Guest Book, and right click the character name to report.
