3. [Beshmundir Temple] Fixed the a bug that allowed the boss monster Macunbello to be killed twice.


4. [Udas Temple Underground] Fixed boss monster Debilkarim the Maker’s special attack skill, so that players cannot evade it using the topography, and also increased the skill’s range.


5. [Fire Temple] Changed the entry requirements so that players can now enter the temple from Morheim and Eltnen automatically upon reaching a certain level, without requiring a key.
 Elyos: level 30
 Asmodians: level 27.


Environments edit

1. Fixed part of the topography at Alukina’s Palace in Beluslan.

NPCs edit

1. Fixed spelling mistakes in some of the NPCs’ dialogs.

2. The Balaur will now take over Kysis Fortress in the Abyss during normal Siege times

3. Named Gatekeepers in Inggison and Gelkmaros can no longer be kited for large distances, and their stats have been increased

4. Omega and Ragnarok can no longer be trained to Fortresses. If a player tries to get friendly Fortress guard NPCs to help them take out these powerful boss monsters, the monsters will reset.

  Additionally, Big Wing Condors are now Razorwing Gryphus.

6. Changed the name of the NPC Fulla in the Desert Garrison in Morheim to Cliessa, to differentiate her from the Fulla in Poeta.


7. Renamed the elite Eracus Gargoyles in the Eracus Temple to “Crouching Eracus Gargoyles”, to distinguish them from the non-elite ones of the same name. Only the elite ones dropped the quest items for [Elyos] Earning Marana’s Respect.

8. Changed the Nicoyerk Mist Merchant NPC in Reshanta to Paranerk, to distinguish him from the other Nicoyerk in Morheim.


9. Renamed Poporinerk to Suganerk to avoid making rude insinuations in German.

11. Renamed the Tursin Viewers in the Kabarah Strip Mine back to Tursin Big Bosses. (They’d inadvertently got renamed in a recent build.)

12. Changed the Watch Cadets in Beluslan to Watch Neophytes to distinguish them from the Cadets in Brusthonin.


13. Changed the Brutal Mist Mane Stalkers that do not patrol with Taygas to Watchers, to distinguish them from the Stalkers with the Taygas. Asmodian quest [Group] Revenge is Sweet will now ask you to kill Watchers and Stalkers, instead of Stalkers twice.

User Interface

User Interface edit

1. In the character PIN window, clicking on the number button with the mouse will no longer do the ‘click' action, but it will still work.

3. Fixed a bug that let users use the keyboard to move the cursor to the beginning or end of the character PIN after it was entered.

Items edit

1. There is now a daily upper limit for the amount of Kinah that players can earn by selling items to an NPC. Trying to sell items that will cause you to exceed this limit will result in an error message.
  The Kinah limit increases with character level.
  All characters on an account share the same Kinah pool, so if you reach the limit on one character you cannot use another character on that account to sell the items.
  The limit is reset every day at midnight (server time).
  This does not affect trade between characters (Trade Broker, Private Store, Private Trade).

2. Made general changes to armor item types to give each a more distinctive single-word name.

4. Fixed some Ghostbound items that were incorrectly named Ghost Sealing.

5. Changed the names of some “Defender’s” items, where the names had become scrambled:



6. Simplified the names of many items available as coin rewards:



For example, the “Rank 5 Asmodian Sword” is now the “Rank 5 Asmodian Sword”.

7. Changed the way that artifact possession is indicated in the artifact name. The old labels were too long, and caused the artifact names to get cut off in buff tooltips.



8. Renamed some items that had been misnamed “Wymir’s” items and should have been “Yumir’s”, after the NPC Yumir.

9. Fixed a bug causing some items not to appear correctly when equipped.

10. Corrected the tooltip for the Fabled Godstone ’Kaisinel’s Fantasy’ so that it now says it has a 5% chance to succeed (as opposed to the incorrect 10%).

11. Reduced the quantities of materials required for many crafting recipes.
  Reduced the quantities for 593 Elyos and 593 Asmodian level 45-55 crafted weapons, armor, and accessories.
  This affects materials like Aether, gatherable materials, and crafted components, but not fluxes or materials sold by vendors.


12. Added new quality designs.
  Added 338 new quality designs each for Elyos and Asmodian.
  The new designs allow players to change their weapon, armor, or accessory from Common to Superior rank.

  Balic materials dropped by the Balaur.

21. Gold Medals are now Gold Medals to match related items.

22. The items for quests [Elyos] Part of the Crashed Dredgion and [Asmodian] Dredgion Salvage were all mixed up, referred to as different things in different places. The interactible objects are now consistently called Dredgion Parts, and the inventory items you collect from them are now consistently called Dredgion Salvage.

23. Unscrambled the names of the Flame Tribe claw items:

24. Changed the scrambled item name “Soul Hunter Topaz Necklace” to “Soul Hunter Topaz Necklace”, which is what it should have been.

25. Changed the “Raiders’ Crystal Ring” to “Raiders’ Crystal Ring” to match the rest of the series.

26. Changed the Fleeting Jerkin and the Fleeting Breastplate to Spiritual Jerkin and Breastplate to match the rest of the series.

27. Changed a series of Superior items dropped by the Greybeard monster from “Omega’s” to “Greybeard’s”. They had somehow become confused with an Eternal set dropped by Omega in Inggison. This applies to Greybeard’s Warhammer, Dagger, Tome, Shoes, Boots, Brogans, and Sabatons.

28. Changed the “(Item) of Itima” series to “Ebon (Item)” to match the naming system better.

29. Changed “Warmonger’s Shield” to “Warmonger’s Shield” to match the monster who drops it.
