Korean PTS: Initial 3.0 Patch Notes Korean PTS: Initial 3.0 Patch Notes Edit


Environment edit

1. The proud Daevas of Elysea and Asmodae have fought their way into a newly discovered region of Balaurea, which had previously been hidden behind a veil.





Many humans and Daevas, as well as the members of Siel's Spear were stranded in Balaurea after the Cataclysm. Cut off from Atreia and outside the Aetheric Field, they wandered their new home, hiding from the violent Balaur, until they arrived at Sarpan. Tiamat had farmed this area for Drana until it became barren, and no longer had any interest in it. For a while, the refugees lived there quietly, adopting Kamar as their stronghold, but eventually incurred Tiamat's wrath, and were forced to abandon Kamar and go into hiding. A powerful mysterious figure named Kahrun emerged to claim leadership of the Reians. He taught them to use Drana to increase their power, and they took the fight back to the Balaur. In the end, the Reians not only reclaimed Kamar and built a splendid city, but they also drove all the Balaur from Sarpan.


Many dangers still threaten the region: frequent Dredgion infiltrations; threats from Tiamat's legions trying to reclaim Sarpan; the powerful Sapiens; Tiamat's energy, which is eroding away the earth; and more.







Tiamaranta is the stronghold of Dragon Lord Tiamat. Tiamat manipulated reality in various parts of the region into the Lands of Rift, Gravity, Anger, and Petrification—all to make the perfect conduits for Tiamat's specialized powers. The heart of each land, where the source of Tiamat's power is located, is guarded by Tiamat's retainers.


In the center of the region lies a tremendous castle called the Eye of Tiamaranta, which is connected to Tiamat's main fortress. While most regions of Tiamaranta, just like Sarpan, have been made neutral by Kahrun's binding, the Eye of Tiamaranta and the Balaur Legion Garrison are contested areas where Elyos and Asmodians can fight.




2. The new regions of Sarpan and Tiamaranta contain brand new group areas and boss monsters.


3. Kisks can no longer be set up in some regions of Balaurea, Inggison and Gelkmaros. Players who have kisks in these areas when the patch is implemented will be teleported back to the obelisks to which they are bound.


4. Modified some parts of Vorgaltem Battlefield in Gelkmaros.


5. Modified some parts of the Great Chapel in Udas Temple.


6. Neutral regions, where PvP between Elyos and Asmodians is not permitted, have been added to some new and existing regions.
- Consensual duelling between Elyos and Asmodian characters will be permitted in some parts of the neutral regions.
- Characters cannot trade with, group with, follow, or visit the private store of, an enemy race character.
- An icon near the minimap will indicate when you have entered a neutral region.




Instances edit

1. Six new and very different instances have opened their doors.
- Round up your most trustworthy allies to defeat the boss monsters within them and acquire their excellent rewards.




Long ago, the dragon Raksha gathered its followers and challenged Tiamat. However, it couldn't defeat the great Dragon Lord, so Tiamat cast the rebels into a deep pit and sealed them in, posting trusted guards to the entrance. Recently, seeing the Reians garnering more support from Elyos and Asmodian troops, Tiamat decided to resurrect Raksha and unleash it upon Tiamat's enemies. The Reians' excellent information network heard about this plan, and scouts were dispatched to locate Raksha's prison. They followed some Balaur guards, and discovered the entrance to the prison. Now that the prison has been located, the Reians are asking for help from both the Elyos and the Asmodians, in order to stop the dragon's resurrection...




- Both Elyos and Asmodians can enter through the "Tahmes Entrance" located in the Satrakand region of Sarpan.




<Rentus Base>

The Reians built a secret fortress in the canyon between Tiamaranta and Sarpan in order to launch an extensive counterattack against the Balaur. They raised many troops in the secret fortress and made preparations for the fight, crafting and stockpiling weapons and armor.


Unbeknownst to them, the leader of this counterattack, Merops, was conspiring with Brigade General Vasharti, who is a lieutenant of Tiamat, and leaked information about the secret fortress. Merops opened an abyss gate allowing Vasharti's legion to infiltrate the fortress. The Reian bravely fought against the sudden onslaught, but the Balaur were too many, and the fortress eventually fell. Numerous Reians who had been stationed in the fortress were slaughtered.


Some of the surviving Reian soldiers escaped and sought help. They are requesting fellow Reians to send reinforcements to recapture the fortress. The Balaur have placed troops on all the roads leading to the fortress, and have prepared many defensive measures in case the Reians and Daevas lead any kind of counterattack.




- Both Elyos and Asmodians can enter through the "Road to the Rentus Base" located in Tiamaranta's dragoon training camp.




<Ladis Forest/Dorgel Manor>


Ladis Forest has been home to spirits since the beginning of time, and is the source of many of the sprits that found their way into Balaurea and Atreia. Until recently, their power was so strong that nobody else could enter. The Balaur determined that they had more to lose than to gain by possessing this forest, so they did not try to take it over.


There are many spirits in Ladis Forest that cannot be seen in elsewhere in Atreia or Balaurea. For this, there are two main reasons. Firstly, the environment of this place is unlike any other. Secondly, a Drakan sorcerer recently breached the defenses and began experiments to try and harness the power of the spirits.


The Reian sorcerer Davlin knew that this place was the source of the spirits, and so came here to research them. She had her Golems build a mansion there, and lived and worked there successfully for a while. But Zadra, the Drakan sorcerer, craved the power both of the spirits and of Davlin's Golems. He imprisoned Davlin, and took over her mansion and Golems. Then, he took up her research where she had left off, and hit upon the idea combining the power of the spirits and that of the Golems.


The Reians, after not hearing anything from Davlin for a while, started to worry, and they are asking their friends among the Elyos and Asmodians to find out the current status of the Reian sorcerer and to rescue her.




- Both Elyos and Asmodians can enter through the "Ladis Forest Entrance/Dorgel Manor Entrance" located in Sarpan's Ladis Forest area.




<Aturam Sky Fortress>


Tiamat's Balaur have powerful air troops, which they deploy either to attack the fortresses that are owned by the Daevas, or to defend the Bulwark from the Elyos or Asmodian forces that are trying to infiltrate. It is now apparent that these troops are trained and stationed in a sky fortress located in the floating islands over Sarpan. Tiamat maintains and supplies the Dredgion from this fortress. The latest intelligence indicates that a new formulation of Surkana has been obtained from Beritra, who has the most advanced Dredgion crafting skill, in order to suppress the Elyos and Asmodian forces. Daevas responded by sending infiltration forces to shut down the sky fortress and destroy the new Surkana.



- Both Elyos and Asmodians can enter by talking to "Silion", who is in Galdar village in Sarpan.
- When entering Aturam Sky Fortress for the first time, you can reach the last boss monster only after completing the quests given by the NPC Hariken.




<Sand Lord's Lair>


A box of highly-enriched experimental Dratamin rolled into an Earth Rift that Tiamat created. Sand bugs living underground ate the Dratamin, and began to mutate. A small number of Drakan troops went into the Rift in order to retrieve the box, but when they learned that the sand bugs had devoured all the Dratamin, they became angry and tried to kill the creatures. But in the end, they were eaten by the Great King Bug and his minions. When the sand bugs devoured the Drakan, they absorbed the consciousness, memories, and language of the Drakan. One, who preyed on the highest-ranking Drakan, became more powerful and intelligent than all the others, and came to be known as Lord Darushitashada.
