Game Arenas:
  • Added the ability to adjust the cooldown for skills whilst inside a Game Arena:
    • This will let us help solve problem skills which are causing big imbalances to Arenas and altering the way Arenas should be played.
    • The following changes have been made:
      • Capture the Fairy:
        • Cure: 3s
        • Healing: 6s
        • Purify: 45s
  • Added the ability to set minimum and maximum values for a variety of character stats:
    • This gives us another option in a way in which we can help balance Game Arenas. For example, we could make it so no-one in the Arena ever has more than 1,000 Dodge Rate regardless as to their build and items.
    • No limits have been placed yet. Instead, we will continue to gather feedback and players can use this new feature to suggest further changes.
  • Fixed bug with Arena Objectives caused by Reborning your character.
  • Fixed a bug where some Battle Royale Arena Objectives weren't being awarded.
  • Skills now reset their cooldowns when an Arena starts and ends.


Capture the Fairy:
  • Players will now be forced to stop when taking or capturing a fairy:
    • This has been added to prevent any 'speed glitches' when doing either of the actions.
  • Purify scrolls have been blocked.
  • The time in which the server checks for a capture has been increased by 4x.
  • The taking and capture areas have been reduced by 4x.
  • The respawn timer is now determined by how many minutes have passed in the game:
    • This is how the respawn timer originally worked, but the changes were reverted along the way as an oversight when a respawn timer option was added for other Game Arenas.
    • The starting respawn timer has been reduced from 10s to 5s, and will now increase as the game time increases.


Christmas Hunt:
  • A number of areas which were used to an unfair advantage last year have now been blocked off.
  • There are now a number of "forbidden" areas:
    • These are areas in which you can go in or be around, but you can't stay for very long.
    • You will lose 8% of your health every few seconds you remain in these areas.
    • Hunters will not lose any health whilst in these areas.
