    December Update - Patch Notes



    Learn more about the ever-powerful separated lovers, Morpheus and Rangora, experience the return of Stillwater Gulf with a deadly revamp - randomized natural disasters and increasing difficulty as time goes on, and much more in our December Update.




    The Chronicles: Eternal Oath


    You are summoned to meet with the sovereigns regarding a mysterious new weapon wielded by a powerful foe wreaking havoc throughout Erenor. Learn who, or what, is behind the merciless slaughter of hundreds of Nuians and Haranyans in the newest Chronicles Questline, "Eternal Oath"!

    Explore this new chronicle, by unlocking it via Chronicle UI and begin a series of 22 quests for the Nuian Alliance and 18 quests for the Haranya Alliance at your local hero hall.
    Both questlines can be unlocked by members of any faction, but be careful: only members of the Nuia Alliance can experience their version of this chronicle. The same counts for the Haranyan version of the chronicle.
    Pirates unfortunately will not be able to complete either of these questlines, as long as they remain members of their faction.



    Morpheus the Deathtrigger

    Morpheus and Rangora sailed across Erenor together as a loving couple. Dahuta, who saw this, was not accepted by her lover and became jealous of the bond they had. So, to separate the two she sent a Kraken to destroy their ship and separate the two. Morpheus and his crew survived and ended up on Growlgate Isle, however, Rangora was not as lucky and was cast to sea.
    Morpheus was struck with grief, and Dahuta whispered into his ear that if he could offer the Goddess ten thousand lives she would bring him his beloved Rangora back to him, alive. An offer he couldn't refuse, he began a killing spree of any soul that crossed him or his crew's path. There are still thousands of lives Morpheus is due to fulfill the contract with the Goddess, and he only grows more powerful.

    When fighting Morpheus, he transforms to his more powerful form - Morpheus the Deathtrigger - after reaching 80% health or lower.



    Rangora The Oathbound

    After the incident that separated Morpheus and Rangora at the hands of Dahuta, the contract was made for Rangora's life to be restored. Dahuta restored Rangora's life, and without knowing Rangora awoke on Growlgate Isle and searched for her lover, Morpheus. Though upon finding him, he was no longer the man that she knew. He was drunk and had gone mad at the thought of losing his lover.
    Thinking that Rangora was just an illusion to haunt him, he aimed his gun at Rangora and fired, taking her life. Dahuta watched as the beautiful tragedy played out before her eyes and revived Rangora once more. She told Rangora of what had happened, and convinced Rangora to take this opportunity to have her very own taste of the power of Gods which she accepted.

    Upon defeating Captain Rangora, there is a chance that Rangora the Oathbound will spawn.

    Achievements and quests were added relate to Rangora the Oathbound.



    Rank 2 Auroria Boss Awakening Scrolls

    New Awakening Scrolls have been added for the Burning Oath and Frozen Anguish.

    Improved Morpheus Awakening Scroll:
    Can only be used on a Legendary or above grade Burning Oath.
    Successful awakening can cause equipment with tempering points above +20 to loose up to -2 points, but won't drop the item below +20.

    Improved Rangora Awakening Scroll:
    Can only be used on a Legendary or above grade Frozen Anguish.
    Successful awakening can cause equipment with tempering points above +20 to loose up to -2 points, but won't drop the item below +20.

    These scrolls are crafted at a Proven Warrior Workbench and provide the Printing proficiency.
    They require Honorforged Medals and the item that drops from either Morpheus the Deathtrigger (Fierce Vow's Blood) or Rangora the Oathbound (Bitter Teardrop), depending which scroll is being crafted.



    Revamped Stillwater Gulf

    The Naval Arena: Stillwater Gulf is now revamped and has reopened and is now available through the Instance button. Up to 50 players (Lv30+) can access this cross-server instance and engage in combat against all participants aboard your Combat Clipper!

    Stillwater Gulf has a 60 minute play time with the Greedy Shadows making it increasingly challenging as the game progresses. Stillwater Gulf starts after a 60 second Standby phase, which is when the protective bubble around the starting island disappears, and players can begin gliding out.
    The instance has four unique areas: Halfmoon Bay, Gathering Seahag, Collapsing Earth and Greed Isles. Supplies are scattered across the map to enhance your clipper. During the game players can view their rank, progress, and status of the Greedy Shadows.

    Find supplies to build and upgrade your Clipper (up to Lv.15) throughout the battle. Some Special Skills will allow participant to install traps, throw barrel bombs, fire torpedos, and more in order to defeat your opponents.
    However tread carefully! When a trap is triggered, the player’s location is revealed for all participants in the instance.

    Various natural disaster can occur during the fight randomly all over the map. Avoid the Poison Clouds, twisters and meteors falling from the sky that can deals significant damages to your Clipper. However, high grade supplies may spawn where a natural disaster occured, so be strategic!

    The top 10 players when the game ends are ruled the winners, and participants will receive rewards based on ranking after their daily entries are done. The rewards are as follows:

    1st Place: Kyrios Badge x100, Honorable Victory Rank 3 x1, and Naval Commendations x5

    Stillwater Combat Clipper


    A new ship, 30-Day Scroll: Stillwater Combat Clipper, has been added. This ship is only temporary and is obtained by using 50 Naval Commendations obtained in Stillwater Gulf. This ship has overall better stats than a standard clipper, but the components cannot be replaced and only lasts 30 days. This Clipper takes and deals no Collision Damage and has the same skills as the Caernord Battle Clipper.



    Rampage Series Vehicle Customization

    A new version has been added to the Rampage Series, the Rampage GT!
    The S200, B200, C200 and Rampage Chroma can all be converted to the Rampage GT, but please note that there is no way to revert his vehicle back, so proceed with caution. This vehicle has the same stats and skills as standard Rampage Vehicles, but has a fun new feature - the back slot of the vehicle can be used for more than just seats for your friends! If you want to carry more passengers, back seats are a must. However, you can instead increase the rank of Supercharging with Rampage Nitro, play to your hearts content with either the Brown or White Piano, show off your style with various decorations or change the music played in the vehicle with the Noryette Phonograph in the back slots to add a little more personal flair to your vehicle!

    That's not all of the changes that are available. Storage Crate Slots have been added to the Redwood Roadster, Nova Speedster and Apex Drift! Placing the Trade Pack Storage in this slot grants an extra spot to store your Trade Packs, allowing you up to 3 Trade Packs in total. Placing extra trade packs will add more weight and subsequently slow your vehicles movement speed!
    The Trade Pack Storage can be crafted with the following:
    Total Upgrade Ticket x6, Nuri Forest Lumber x10, Rising Star Stone x5 and Sunridge Ingot x5

    • Epic Machine Anchoring Emblem decreases Destruction Chance -50%
    ○ Legendary Machine Anchoring Shard can now be crafted into a Charm and Emblem at the Improved Workbench, and can only be used on Legendary Grade Machine Components

    • Legendary Machine Anchoring Emblem decreases Destruction Chance -50%
    ○ Both type of Shards require 230,000 Masonry Proficiency in order to be used for Crafting and require different additional materials, such as Lucky Sunpoint/Moonpoint/Starpoint, Superior Red Regrade Charm and Silver Regrade Charm



    Mysthrane Gorge Faction Competition

    Similar to the system we already have in Reedwind, we're bringing a Faction Competition system to Mysthrane Gorge. This new competition begins during the War in Mysthrane Gorge and it only ends whenever a faction reaches the score limit.

    When a faction wins the competition, their points reset to 0. But the other 2 faction get to keep their points and continue from where they left off in the next War period. The victorious faction's Risopoda then spawns at the Central Hall. After that, the victorious faction can interact with the Risopoda and summon Nehliya.

    After a faction wins the competition, the two losing factions take continuous damage from Abyssal Paralysis and get slowed if they try to enter the Central Hall. Sorry folks, reserved for the winners only!

    If no faction reaches the goal during the 11-hours of War, the zone is prepared for the next War cycle. This preparation takes 10 minutes of Peace and a 50 minutes of Conflict.

    Nehliya only stays at the center for an hour. If the winning faction can't defeat her in time, she despawns and another faction competition begins.

    Gaining Faction Points in Mysthrane Gorge


    There is a Daily Quest given by Mellia in the Crimson Watch Base. This quest is like a small progression bar and certain activities you accomplish in the zone will fill this bar. Competing this quest will grant your faction with 8 Faction Competition Points. But of course, 8 Faction Competition Points is not the only reward you get from this quest. It also grants you XP and Coins. And it goes without saying, in order to earn 8 Faction Competition Points and contribute to the score, the competition must first be in-progress.

    Additionally, you can gain quest points by hunting various enemy NPCs in Mysthrane Gorge. Higher the rank of an enemy NPC, the higher quest points you get. Aside from hunting for monsters, you can also collect Haradium Shards and take them to the supply depot to earn quest points. These shards randomly spawn in the zone.

    You can also gain Faction Points by hunting the Risopoda. Regardless of a competition being active or not, the Risopoda can be summoned by a faction hero once every 36 hours. But do keep in mind that if a faction competition is not active at the time, the competition points you get from hunting the Risopoda will not be added to the scoreboard!



    Risopoda Hunt and Nehliya Changes

    The way you can fight the Risopoda and challenge Nehliya have changed with the introduction of the Mysthrane Faction Competition! Risopoda will no longer summon on their own but will harken to the call of a faction hero! They can be summoned once every 36 hours. During this time, only the summoning faction will be able to enter the sealstone area and challenge the Risopoda. In the event another faction is in the area upon the Risopoda summoning, they will be teleported away to the safety of the Crimson Watch Base. Upon defeating the Risopoda 1500 Faction Points will be awarded if the Faction Competition is active upon its defeat.
    Further adjustments have been made to the Risopoda, including the changing of it's path it travels. The Risopoda's health has been reduced, however it will now deal additional damage to idle targets with the use of a new skill. So keep on moving!

    Nehliya will no longer be available after defeating the Risopoda. You will only be able to challenge Nehliya, The Queen of Annihilation after your faction wins the Faction Competition in Mysthrane Gorge by reaching a certain amount of Faction Points. Sorry reds, you will not be able to challenge her unless you win the Faction Competition yourself!
    Nehliya and the Risopoda hunt still will only last 40 minutes after they are spawned, so be sure to plan ahead to ensure victory for the glory of your faction and Erenor!

    Mysthrane Gorge Mythic Grade Bosses

    The Mythic Grade Bosses - Atheneum Golem and Guardian Doomgaze - have been added to Mysthrane Gorge. Every 30 minutes, one of them will spawn at one of the three Sealstones and stays for 30 minutes. After that time, one will spawn again at another random sealstone in Mysthrane Gorge, so make sure to keep an eye out for them during your explorations!

    The Atheneum Golem floats in the air along the path of the Risopoda, but floats low enough to the ground to take both Melee and Siege damage. However, the Guardian Doomgaze floats along the similar paths of the Risopoda but higher up - making ranged damage the only way to attack it! Upon defeating both of these monsters, they will leave 2 Mysthrane Haradium Veins behind - each giving you one Mysthrane Haradium Pack and add 20 Points to the Faction Activity in Mysthrane Gorge.



    Siege Improvements

    Sieges are quite important to everyone in Erenor, that's why we've made some improvements to them with this new update!

    All siege weapons are now provided by the King/Queen, except for the Risopoda. If you're a Siege participant and equipped with a Siege vehicle, you are allowed to summon your customized vehicle during the siege. If a faction has no territory or has less territories than the others, they can receive more siege weapons to compensate.

    If you're the owner of a Siege Risopoda mount, you can then summon and use your Risopoda during that siege if you obtain the necessary licenses, of course. You can interact with the Risopoda distribution device available at the siege base. Please note that only one Siege Risopoda can be used per faction.

    A Siege Commander can acquire any siege weapons and supplies, with the exception of the Risopoda Mount.

    If you are a Siege participant, you can interact with NPCs and objects at your siege spawn location. But do not forget that the supplies you get from these NPCs are in limited supply and once every supply is distributed, you cannot interact with the NPC or the objects anymore.

    Additionally, the Health the Defensive Archeum Lodestone, Castle Walls, and the health of the Siege Tank and Shatigon Steam Tank have increased.

    New Siege Weapon: Misagon's Breath

    A brand new siege weapon has entered the fray! The Misagon's Breath is a brand new siege weapon for the attackers of sieges, sorry defenders! This weapon has two powerful skills:

    Caramelizing: Inflicts Ignition and burns the target, dealing damage over time. It also decreases the target's Defense, Magic Defence and Healing Received.
    Shockbomb: It can be fired to airborne targets or to targets on the castle wall using cannons. When hit, airborne targets fall down to the ground and Cannoneers on the walls are knocked back, unable to use cannons for a short moment.

    When the player carrying Misagon's Breath dies, the weapon explodes and deals a significant amount of Siege Damage to all enemies within a 8m radius. It also grants 20 stacks of Ignition, which deals damage over time to all of the enemies afflicted.



    Commendation Collector

    Faction conflicts can become tiring sometimes. Whilst you're conquering every territory you can find, your public face is also important in order to maintain your trading! There is a new NPC in Marianople and Austera that could help you exactly on this matter: The Commendation Collector!

    Using 10 Labor, you can submit a Faction Commendation and the Commendation Collector will reward your character with 300 Honor Points. You can get Faction Commendations by completing various activities. After collecting 1000 Faction Commendations, the NPC then will offer 2 options for your faction. Naturally, only the faction heroes are able to choose one of the options. The options are:
    ○ Enhanced Amarendra IV's Blessing or Andrion II's Blessing buffs.
    ○ A Siege Boost that can be used by a hero to active additional benefits for the Siege Squad.

    Based on your choice, the Commendation Collector will then fulfill your request. The Commendation Collector will still accept your Faction Commendations in exchange for Honor Points, however will not present the option to the faction heroes until it is reset after 7 days.

    Enhanced Statue Buff


    This choice enhances the buff provided by your faction statue.
    Nuia Basic Faction Buff: Andrion II's Blessing
    Haranya Basic Faction Buff: Amarendra IV's Blessing

    In order to enhance the effects of the buff, a faction member under the effect of the current basic faction buff has to talk to the Critic. This action costs 100 Labor. When enhanced, the following effects are added to the buff:
    - Increases Loot Drop Rate 5%
    - Increases the amount of Honor Points gained during War or from quests by 15%
    - Increases Vocation Badge gain by 15%

    When enhanced, the buffs' name changes to:
    - Nuia Enhanced Faction Buff: Enhanced Andrion II's Blessing
    - Haranya Enhanced Faction Buff: Enhanced Amerandra IV's Blessing

    This enhancement duration is 24 hours.

    Siege Boost


    The Siege Boost is an item that provides both factions attending the siege certain status improvements depending on their role during Siege. This item can only be used by a faction hero during siege, and only if the faction holds one territory or fewer.

    If it's used by the attacking side, it provides the following effects depending on the number of territories owned:
    - If no territories are owned by the attacking faction, the buff "Castle Valor Boost (Rank 1)" is applied:
    • Attack and Magic Attack +10%
    • Siege Damage from Vehicles +25%
    • Toughness +720
    • Received Siege Damage -20%

    - If the attacking side owns one territory, the buff "Castle Valor Boost (Rank 2)" is applied:
    • Attack and Magic Attack +20%
    • Siege Damage from Vehicles +50%
    • Toughness +720
    • Received Siege Damage -30%

    If it's used by the defending side, the buff "Siege Valor Boost (Rank 1)" is applied:
    • Attack and Magic Attack +10%
    • Siege Damage from Vehicles +25%
    • Decreases the duration of Stun, Tripped, Fear, Shackle, Sleep, Impaled and Confinement -8%

    The Siege Boost can be used by both factions during the same siege as long as the use requirement is met.



    Risopoda Mount


    With the Rise of Nehliya update, you've met our new buddies - the Risopoda! Now something even better has happened, you can now craft and use the Risopoda as your very own mount!
    - Risopoda is a Unique grade mount with 168,274 default HP (Lv55, no armor)
    - It has a Base Move Speed of 9.0m/s and it's a 1-Seater Mount
    - If you have a special license, you can even use it during a Siege.

    - Enemies cannot even target you when you're on this beast!

    But since it's not suitable for the job, you cannot use the Risopoda to carry a trade pack. You would want those packs to reach their destination in one piece, after all.

    This mount can be created by combining 10 Risopoda Parts from Machine Parts Boxes. Machine Parts Boxes have a chance to drop from the Risopodas upon defeat. This mount lasts 7 days.

    Specialty Pack Payment Changes

    Some changes regarding the Specialty Pack Payments were made as followed:





    Farmhand Update: Aquafarms

    Farmhands just got more handy! Farmhands now have the ability to assist you on your Aquafarms and farm aquatic plants and animals for you. To put your Farmhand to work on your Aquafarm, it will need to be at least level 16 and have Farming level 2!

    You can view an Aquafarm's size once it's registered. Aquatic plants and animals can only be cultivated in an Aquafarm space, of course! Assigning your Farmhand to an Aquafarm s the same as any other farm. This process also costs Labor and Vigor Points, just like a standard farm.

    When your Farmhand gets to a certain Farming level, Aquafarms can be added to it's Farming range. With this new feature, your Farmhand can now farm aquatic plants and animals.



    Equipment Tutorial Quests and Achievements

    Some adjustments were made to the Equipment Tutorial quests:



    Some already existing quests have now new item rewards:



    New achievements were also added, granting rewards as well:



    ○ The Recipe for the Equipment Awakening Scroll Rank 3 is now available.
    • Requires 1x Blank Regrade Scroll, 2x Sunlight Archeum Dust, and 2x Moonlight Archeum Dust to craft.
    • Crafted at the Proven Warrior Workbench by characters over level 50+.



    New Costume Slot


    A new Slot has been added to the Character Equipment: the Image Costume Slot! With this new Slot, the current costume system changes a bit, and stats and looks are separated. It offers a less complicated way for you to wear your favorite costumes, without removing and fusing various images!
    ○ Stat Costume Slot (old slot)
    • Place a Costume with Stats in this slot in order to receive it's effects and stats.
    • If a Stat Costume has an appearance, and the Image Costume Slot is empty, the Stat Costume's appearance will be displayed
    • Works similarly to the previous Costume Slot.
