Patch Notes:
  • Added 'Ancient Dormant' Clan Event to the Sikuku Ruins:
    • This new event takes place in the southern maze area that was previously inaccessible. The event will begin a few hours after a server restart.
    • The area features our first implementation of dynamic PvP, where a single map contains both PvE and PvP areas. Upon entering the maze your status will change to PvP mode and will turn back to PvE when you exit the maze.
    • Fight your way to the end of the maze and try to survive other players and monsters whilst you investigate an ancient dominator that is said to reside somewhere within the Sikuku Ruins.
    • Once the event has been completed it will become locked for a few hours before starting again.

Christmas Arena
A new PvP Arena where players start as either a Hunter or a Prop.

  • You must find and eliminate players who are disguising themselves as a Christmas prop.
  • Hunters start as a Level 100 Visitor wearing the Santa disguise costume.
  • To allow the props to hide, the screens of Hunters are hidden at the start for 30 seconds.
  • Use the Hunter's Attack skill, found in your Active skill list or quick bar, to take 40% HP from a nearby prop.
  • You have the chance of unlocking a Christmas Gift Bag by eliminating props.
  • You must outwit Hunters by disguising yourself as a Christmas prop.
  • Props start as a naked Level 1 Visitor and can equip a variety of Christmas props found in their PAT inventories.
  • Use the Prop Transform skill to transform into a prop.
  • A variety of static props and monsters can be found throughout the Arena. Use this to blend with your environment and outwit the Hunters.
  • You have the chance of unlocking a Christmas Gift Bag by surviving in the Arena.
Players have the chance of unlocking a Christmas Gift Bag by actively playing in the Arena - it is not guaranteed that you will receive one on every Arena. Arena Objectives are enabled and can be unlocked by joining the Christmas Arena.

As part of this event, we'll also be running a contest/tournament based on the leaderboards of the Christmas Arena. To view the leaderboards, go to Game Arena (ALT+P) > PvP > Christmas Hunt > Leaderboards (bottom right). Total Wins will not be visible on the leaderboards.

The Top 5 players which have the Total Time Alive, Total Kills and Total Wins for the Christmas Arena will each receive rewards.

Crystal Defenders:
  • Removed Arua's Fairy from any players currently carrying one after a game had ended.

Trading Fees:
These now apply to "self trades" - these are trades which you make to yourself. Players have used this method to bypass the fees we put in place to help remove excess Zulie from the economy. There were a few different options open to us which we were going to implement to tackle this issue, including putting a limit on the amount of Zulie an account can trade based on its age, the amount of Zulie an account can trade within a time limit, etc, however, none were particularly fair on fair players. The fees are in place to remove excess Zulie from the economy and help reduce prices. It's been clear for some time that this is pointless for "higher value" items as players opt to bypass the game mechanics. Furthermore, since players opt to use "middle man" accounts to bypass these limits, there has been a rise in the amount of players being scammed using this method. Whilst these changes won't directly stop you being scammed, they may make you think twice before bypassing the game mechanics as you will be hit with the trading fee regardless as to who you are trading. It's fairly obvious there's going to be a minority against these changes but we'd like to think that you can see that the change itself makes sense. The rules remain unchanged with these changes.

Trading Fees:
A note to clarify that the mechanics of the trading fees have not been changed for Classic and remain the same.
  • Added Christmas Event:
    • The event features several quests to complete and over 60 items to collect.
  • Added Weak Party Buff scrolls to the majority of Junon Planet map drops.
