Date: August 17, 2023 (Thu)
Duration: 7:00 AM ~ 10:30 AM (3 hours 30 minutes)
During the maintenance on August 17, 2023 (Thu) a new Monaterra region - giant boss dungeon 'Steel Fortress' - will be added.
The titles obtained from 'Steel Fortress' are based on a different standard compared to existing titles.
As the effects have already been decided, we would like to briefly explain this choice.
First of all, when adventurers play raid content, the titles and equipment worn by main support characters feel relatively unreasonable compared to characters in other positions.
The new title includes all-in-one support effects made to alleviate this issue.
Implementation of these options will differ from the existing titles that decrease Defense and Elemental Resistance (Reaper, Shadow's Descent, Festival, etc.)
This time, the effect will no longer overlap with Defense Decrease from Elrianode shoes applied through command attacks.
We hope that it will fix the events of wearing titles and equipment that are not intended for certain roles.
In addition, even after the release of the new title, if these problematic resources are still used, we will patch them in the future.
We are considering applying numerical adjustments to titles and equipment that is not intended to be used in endgame dungeons.
If there are any related adjustments, we will let you know.
