  • Improved the animation for sprinting in Main Weapon mode.

 

  • Fixed the graphical issue with the abdomen that occurred when a Ranger goes into the combat stance without any defense gear or outfit/costume on.

 

  • Fixed the issue where the stomach area would appear graphically unnatural when standing or sitting while wearing the basic outfit.

 

  • Fixed the issue where the character would appear graphically broken in combat and non-combat stance when equipped with the Zereth Armor. (Fixed the issue where the legs, left arm and hand areas would appear graphically broken).

    • This is available once per Family and if your character is over Lv.55, you will have already completed the Challenge (Y) upon logging in and you can claim the completion reward.

  • Central Market was the first step to create a free market economy where you as the adventurer create your own market without much restriction. We wanted to ensure convenience and accessibility to bring more joy to the art of trading.

    • However, after the Central Market update, the price gap between equipment which were not upgraded and equipment which were upgraded to ultimate gradually increased due to the amount of equipment upgraded to blue grade rarely being sold or purchased.

    • Therefore due to profit margins being made by the use of these characteristics of the Central Market, we implemented the following changes.

  1.  Equipment upgraded to blue grade have been removed from the Central Market.
    - The previous upgraded blue equipment have been changed to the yellow grade (ultimate) equipment.
  2. Equipment upgraded to yellow grade can no longer be bought or sold at the Central Market.
    - All blue grade equipment which were registered at the Central Market (or placed on orders or purchased) will be redistributed back through the mail.
    - Yellow grade equipment can be registered after the reform stone has been extracted and downgraded back to green from the Blacksmith or Arms Dealer NPC.
    - For extraction, you need 1 Restoration Stone which is sold for 1,000 Silver from the Blacksmith or Arms Dealer NPC. Extraction will result in the following: the equipment prior to being upgraded and Armor Reform Stone.
  3. With grades 1, 2, and 3 Reform Stones, you will have a chance to upgrade up to yellow grade (ultimate) equipment.
  4. When Crafting from the Workshop, you can obtain the original crafting equipment and have a chance to obtain yellow grade (ultimate) equipment.
  5. Added a visual and sound effect which is displayed when upgrade has succeeded or failed.
  6. When attempting an upgrade, the upgrade value for the equipment you are attempting to upgrade will be displayed.
    *We are also investigating if there are any ways this system is being abused.
    **We resolved the issue where adventurers who have completed all the series of The Uncharted Sea, History of Margoria quest series prior to its revamp on April 3 could not complete the Discovered and Undiscovered quest.
