Patch Notes 3.0
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 in 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 the Balaur from Sarpan.
Many dangers still threaten the region: frequent Dredgion infiltrations; Tiamat's legions trying to reclaim Sarpan; the powerful Sapiens; Tiamat's energy, which is eroding away the land; and more.
Tiamaranta is the stronghold of Dragon Lord Tiamat. Tiamat manipulated reality in various parts of the region into the Lands of Fissure, Gravity, Wrath, 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 trusted lieutenants.
In the center of the region lies a tremendous castle called Tiamaranta's Eye, which is connected to Tiamat's main fortress. While some regions of Tiamaranta, just like Sarpan, have been made neutral by Kahrun's Will, there are many contested areas where Elyos and Asmodians can fight, including Tiamaranta's Eye and the Balaur Legion Garrisons.
An Aetheric Field divides the Disputed from the Neutral Lands. It is accessed from the Aetheric Field Teleport Device found near the Windstream or the Aetheric Field.
The new regions of Sarpan and Tiamaranta contain brand new group areas and boss monsters.
Kisks cannot be installed around Kamar or the Hero's Discus in Sarpan, or around Rancora Fortress in Tiamaranta.

2. Fixed a bug allowing players to get through impassable doors using certain skills.
3. Fixed a problem where Kisks could be installed in specific areas inside the fortresses in Inggison and Gelkmaros.
4. Added a no-glide zone to the Abyss Bridge in the Arena of Discipline in the Crucible Coliseum.

Around the Altar of Avarice in Inggison.

Seven 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 "Raksang Entrance" located in the Satrakand region of Sarpan.
Kisks cannot be installed in certain parts of Raksang.
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, a lieutenant of Tiamat's, and leaked information about the secret fortress. Merops opened an abyss gate allowing Vasharti's legion to infiltrate the fortress. The Reians 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.
1. Both Elyos and Asmodians can enter through the "Road to Rentus Base" located in Tiamaranta's Balaur Cavalry Base.
Elementis Forest/Argent Manor
Elementis 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 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 "Elementis Forest Entrance/Argent Manor Entrance" located in Sarpan's Elementis Forest area.
Aturam Sky Fortress
Tiamat's Balaur have powerful air troops, which they deploy either to attack Daeva-owned fortresses, or to defend the Bulwark from the Elyos or Asmodian forces that are trying to infiltrate. Aturam Sky Fortress, located on a floating island in Sarpan, is in charge of organizing and supplying the aforementioned air troops. The Reians, having decided that it is impossible to face off with the Tiamat as things were, dispatched infiltration forces into the fortress to shut it down. But realizing that such a feat cannot be done alone, they now call upon the Elyos and Asmodians for aid.
Both Elyos and Asmodians can enter by talking to "Silion", who is in Garldar 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.
A box of highly-enriched experimental Dratamin rolled into one of Tiamat's Fissures. Sand bugs living underground ate the Dratamin, and began to mutate. A small number of Drakan troops went into the Fissure in order to retrieve the box, and when they saw that it was all gone, they became angry and tried to kill the creatures. In the end, they were beaten and devoured.
When the sand bugs consumed the Drakan, they absorbed the Drakan's consciousness, memories, and language. One, who preyed on the highest-ranking Drakan, became more powerful and intelligent than all the others, and came to be known as Empress Muada.
Both Elyos and Asmodians can enter through "Muada's Trencher" in Sarpan's Sabat Twilight region.
There is one quest associated with Muada's Trencher: [Daily/Alliance] The Empress Must Die. It's for both Elyos and Asmodians, and is given by Betios in Kamar.
The Reian-Elyos-Asmodian alliance is a real threat to Tiamat. It has been losing the Hearts more and more often, so it decides to take extreme measures, sending out the Terath Dredgion. It's clear that the Daevas don't stand a chance against the powerful warship, unless they can get inside and neutralize it. Their orders are to infiltrate the Dredgion, and to annihilate any opposition they find. The Reians realize that the Elyos and the Asmodians are fighting each other inside the Dredgion, but they need the help, so they decide not to press the issue.
Anyone from level 56 - 60 can enter, and there is no prerequisite quest. This is a PvPvE dungeon that the Elyos and Asmodians can both enter at the same time.
The Terath Dredgion is only available during 3 specific periods each day. When the instance becomes available, an icon will appear to all eligible characters in the bottom right corner of the screen. Enter either by clicking this button, or by talking to the NPC in Rancora Fortress.
Elyos NPC: Rokus
Asmodian NPC: Alluna
The re-entry cooldown time for the Terath Dredgion is 2 hours.
Satra Treasure Hoard
Reian agents, on a covert operation to recover Siel's Relics, discovered this secret storeroom containing the treasure of the Satra Legion, and all of Satra's war funds. The agents notified Adella, the Tiamaranta Expedition Governor, and she made it a priority to seize the war funds. She couldn't spare a larger military force, and the agents were unable to succeed on their own, so Adella requested the help of Elyos and Asmodian commanders to recommend their most capable Daevas to assist with the operation.
The Satra Treasure Hoard instance has has two difficulty levels - normal and difficult. It can be accessed by an underground passage, the location of which depends on which Hearts of Tiamat's power the Daevas occupy.
How to access the different difficulty versions of this instance:
The normal difficulty version is through an 'Unstable Passage' that appears inside a Heart that is occupied by friendly Daevas. (You cannot use the passage in a Heart occupied by the enemy.)
If you want to try the difficult version, make sure your race is occupying at least two Hearts, and then enter the instance through the 'Neglected Maintenance Tunnel' located in Tiamaranta's Eye.
Only the group leader can choose the difficulty level of an instance, and other group members can only use the entrance corresponding to the level the leader has selected. (E.g. If a group leader chose the difficult version, the group members can enter only through the 'Neglected Maintenance Tunnel'.)
In the normal version, you can obtain Platinum Medals, while the difficult version offers Mithril Medals as well as Platinum Medals.
