Korean PTS: Initial 2.5 Patch Notes Korean PTS: Initial 2.5 Patch Notes Edit

Instances

Instances edit

1. Added 2 new instances.

 

<Academy Bootcamp>
The Kaisinel Academy and the Marchutan Academy are lifelong educational institutions where the Empyrean Lords instill in their followers the virtues and battle skills appropriate to a Daeva. Until now, only enrolled Daevas were required to attend bootcamp, but after the mixed results of the initial assault on Balaurea, the Empyrean Lords knew they had to step up their game, and opened the doors of the Kaisinel Academy Bootcamp and the Marchutan Academy Bootcamp to regular Daevas.

 

The Bootcamp, which can be entered by both Elyos and Asmodians, is a PvE battlefield designed to develop a Daeva’s skills, with the incentive of many brand new reward items in the Cloister of Kaisinel and the Convent of Marchutan.

 

 

 The Academy Bootcamp is a new type of instance in which you defeat wave after wave of monsters in a circular arena.
 There are a total of 10 steps, of 5 rounds each. More powerful opponents appear at each step.
 There are no quest requirements for the Academy Bootcamp; any character of level 50 or above can enter, if they are in a group.
  In Sanctum and Pandaemonium, teleport via statue to the Kaisinel Academy or the Marchutan Academy, and you can access the Academy Bootcamp from there. From Inggison and Gelkmaros, you can use the Academy Bootcamp Teleport NPC.
 Outside the arena, but still within the Bootcamp instance, there is a waiting room where Daevas resurrect after death.
 Daevas who enter before training begins will go directly to the arena, but latecomers will appear in the waiting room.
 Each step is completed when all monsters are defeated. Proceed to the next step by talking to the training recordkeeper in the center of arena.
 A Daeva in the waiting room can get into the arena by using a "Consolidation Ticket" which you can obtain during the training.
 The ’Consolidation Ticket’ can be traded, but it disappears if you exit the instance, log out character selection, or quit the game.
 All group members obtain the same number of points for defeating monsters regardless of how much damage they did.
 The training will end if all characters in the arena die or you complete all the steps of the training. You will be rewarded with "Academy Insignia" depending on your score.
 Characters in the waiting room can stop the training and exit through the Stop Training button located in the upper right of the screen.
 Some skills and items cannot be used in the Academy Bootcamp.
 The re-entry cooldown for the Academy Bootcamp is 22 hours.

 

<Araka>
Araka Farm produces 50% of Drana in Tiamat’s territory, and plays a vital role in providing stable resources to Tiamat’s army. Surama, a Drakan from a high ranking family, recently took over as Managing Director, and increased production dramatically by switching over from general plants and trees to using Elim as a Drana source. Furthermore, it seems that Surama is power-hungry, and is using his position to perform bio experiments using dragel. We must stop the flow of drana to Tiamat’s Army and end Surama’s plotting.

 

 

 Various secrets are hidden in Araka. Because of its close connection to the Reian Tribe, tribe members may provide very important information about the dungeon, so pay close attention to the Reians’ conversation.
 There are no quest requirements for Araka; any character of level 50 or above can enter, if they are in a group.
 In order to access Araka, each race must control its own camp’s Balaurea fortress. Upon conquering, a Dimensional Gate will appear beside the special ordnance quartermaster for the Elyos and the fortress quartermaster for the Asmodians.
 There are four entrances, but (as with Dark Poeta) they all lead to the same instance.
 The re-entry cooldown for Araka is 22 hours.

 

2. Reduced the difficulty level of the ’Draupnir Cave’ instance, and adjusted the conditions causing the final boss monster, Commander Bakarma, to appear.
 Commander Bakarma will now appear only after players have defeated all the sub bosses: Instructor Afrane, Beautiful Lakshmi, Kind Saraswati, and Commander Nimbarka.
 Decreased the number of monsters inside Draupnir Cave.
 Decreased the stats of monsters inside Draupnir Cave.
 Changed some of Commander Bakarma’s battle tactics.

 

3. Removed the upper cap on the Nochsana Training Camp instance, so that all players from level 25 up will be able to enter it.

 

4. In the Kromede’s Trial instance, Butler Jeeves will no longer drop the Secret Safe Key. Access to the Kaliga Treasury through the secret vault door will be by simply defeating Butler Jeeves.

 

Items

Items edit

1. Added a new item enhancement system called divinity endowment.
 This new enhancement can only be performed on certain items.
 The item will be imbued with an effect that gives various bonuses when activated.
 There are 2 possible stages of divinity endowment, and some items will only be enhanceable up to step 1.
 New items have been added that will be enhanceable up to step 2.
 The divinity endowment effect is consumed during depending battle (attack, defense, and skill use).
     General attack and defense will consume a small amount.

     With skill use, more powerful skills will consume more of the divinity endowment.

 When a weapon that has been divinity endowed is used in Armsfusion, the resultant weapon will also be divinity endowed.

 

[Armsfusion]


 The price of recharging the divinity endowment will increase with higher Divinity Endowment Steps, Item Grade, and on fused weapons

 The two ways of endowing divinity are by talking to an NPC and by using a divinity endowment item.
     New NPCs have been placed in the capital cities, at the Reshanta Obelisk for each race, at the Balaurea Obelisks, and in the Academy Bootcamp.
