Duration: 4:30 AM ~ 11:00 AM (6 hours 30 minutes)
Today, we will inform you about content improved with this maintenance.
After receiving the feedback from the dungeon-oriented Q&A, after a testing period, we decided to apply an update related to gear replacement.
The cooldown is removed when replacing equipment, and the conditions are also improved. Now you can not only change gear when in standby state, but also when moving, dashing and jumping.
During the offline event, adventurers pointed out a phenomenon where skills could not be used after clearing a sub-stage.
We've reviewed this matter and you can now summon before and after the curtain is broken.
When playing through dungeons, certain skill effects are interfering with gameplay. Optimizations have been applied to some skills.
While there is no skill form change in this patch, the FX might be slightly different than before for some of them.
We also want to improve the experience of not receiving any items when clearing Abyss Raid.
At least one Abyssal Magic Stone / Abyssal Energy Purifier / Accessory Cube (except Birth of Origin) will drop from the final phase unconditionally.
Also, certain uncomfortable elements of Steel Fortress have been changed, such as the HP bars not being properly separated in phase 3, the function of turrets in phase 2, the action speed of drones in phase 3, etc.
Lastly, as announced on 07/20 (Thu), we're planning to change the names of guilds that suffer from long inactivity.
Abyss Raid Story Mode & Improvements
Abyss Raid Story Mode is added.
Rewards can be obtained by defeating the last phase of each dungeon. When you click 'Receive' in the Story Mode UI, the Abyss Purification gauge will increase and you will receive extra Abyssal Purifiers. (However, when the gauge reaches 100%, you cannot obtain Abyssal Energy Purification Cube)
Does not count for title and weapon progress.
There is no Resurrection Stone restriction.
Entry condition: 2 ~ 4 people of Lv. 99, 3rd Job or higher, with at least 2.5M CP
The Abyssal Mystic Stone drop rate is improved.
When defeating the boss monster of each dungeon in the last phase, a guaranteed Abyssal Mystic Stone or Abyssal Purifier is granted. (For dungeons except Birth of Origin, an Accessory Cube drop is also included in the pool.)
Giant Boss: Steel Fortress improvements
During Phase 1, when the HP of the Boss reaches 0, the transition to the next phase will be applied faster.
Dialogue UI adjusted not to excessively cover the Boss HP Bar.
HP UIs for Phase 1 and 3 are improved.
Targeting speed when boarding the Turret is improved.
In Phase 2, you can fire continuously when holding down the Z, X, C keys.
Phase 3 - when the Charge pattern occurs, the drones finish their action and disappear.
Additionally, during the Charge pattern, the drones are faster.
Phase 3 - when the boss initiates the Condensation phase or hides during the Charge pattern, its movement will be sped up.
The wait time for the Charge pattern to change the color will be increased.
Guild Name Change Notice
Guilds that fulfil the below conditions will have their name changed during this maintenance.
The guild name is changed to a random name.
You can change the name for free once in such case.
All guilds that have all member inactivity longer than 3 years will have their names changed.
The condition applies by character, not by the whole account. (In order to prevent this, you must login on the character that is specifically in the guild.)
