2. Changes/Additions

 2-1. Improved Effect of Primary Stat 

※ Developer's Comment

Hello, this is Developer G, the person in charge of primary stat effect improvements.

Below I will discuss the intention behind the many changes we made to improve the influence of primary stats and the current situation regarding tweaks in the aftermath of said changes.

 

 

(1) Imbalance of Agility Characters

- Previously, Agility upgrades increased the CRT stat, while PWR and INT upgrades increased CRT damage.

- Our intention in doing so was to have a greater variety of characters with characteristics determined by the principle stat of their class.

- Contrary to this intention, the CRT stat became a much less valuable stat due to its universality across all classes.

- Classes whose main stat was PWR or INT could easily improve CRT and then upgrade CRT damage simply by increasing their primary stat.

- Agility classes were able to reach maximum CRT with little effort by upgrading their primary stat, but were forced to use a lot of cash and equipment slots to improve CRT damage.

- As a result, it was much more costly for Agility classes to improve CRT damage than PWR/INT classes. This led to an imbalance and forced this class to rely almost completely on skill use.

- This method was able to address class imbalances in the short term, but it was inevitable that it would have a sustained deleterious effect on game settings in the long term.

- This patch will make it so Agility characters can improve CRT damage by increasing their primary stat, just like PWR/INT characters, ensuring that all characters can get better through stat upgrades in an equal fashion.

 

 

(2) Tweaking Critical Hits by Removing CRT for Agility Classes

- Removal of the ability to increase the CRT stat for all Agility classes considerably decreased their critical hit rate. In response, we made it so Hero Level increases could be used as a supplement to address this disadvantage.

- Reaching Hero Level 500 will increase CRT by 220,000 and this ensures such classes will achieve critical hit rates equal to before these improvements were made.

- Hero Level restructuring also ensured reaching LV 500 was easier than before, allowing Agility characters to overcome this disadvantage.

- Please refer to the Hero Level patch note for more details.

 

 

(3) Primary stat – Supplemental stat removal (future implementation expected)

- Due to current issues related PVP and updated content, we put off the removal of supplemental stats enhanced through primary state increases.

- The supplemental stats per primary stat are as follows:

- PWR: Paralyze, paralysis resistance, stun

- Agility: CRT resistance

- Intelligence: Magic DEF

- We expect to remove these stats soon, and in doing so will make it so that all primary stats will lead to equal benefits (limited to main class). (attack power, CRT damage up)

 

 

We regret that the Red Lotus Palace patch will lead to significant changes in the game.

These improvements will ensure that all classes start on an equal footing in terms of item settings, and this will lead to a more finely-tuned balance between characters.

 

 

 

 

- The influence of primary [PWR, Agility, INT] stats has been revised.

 

1. Removed Agility/CRT increase

-Increasing agility no longer increases CRT.

-Rather than increasing [CRT], classes with agility as their primary stat will see [CRT damage] increase instead.

 

 

2. Modification to CRT Damage Increase

- With this update, we have modified it so that CRT damage, which used to be increased through PWR and INT upgrades regardless of a class' primary stat, can now only be increased through primary stat upgrades.

- The following shows the increase value per class, per primary stat upgrade.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 2-2. Changes to Penalty for Equipping Equipment 

*The existing penalty for equipping equipment was reduced in order to prevent the overall devaluation of said equipment as a result of such excessive penalties.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 2-3. Expanded Hero Levels 

※ Developer's Comment

Hello! Hello, this is Developer G, the person in charge of primary stat improvements and Hero Level expansion.

Below I will detail our reasoning for Hero Level expansion as well as the detailed changes involved in this process.

 


(1) Direction of Hero Level Improvements

- The changes made in this instance were made to ensure accumulated play time after users reach the maximum Hero Level.

- In addition, we have minimized the amount stats increase with each level up to prevent a gap in ability between players due to Hero Level differences.

- This improvement is meant as a yardstick for growth beyond accumulated play time.

 

(2) Improvements to Stat Increases

- Improvements were made regarding improvement intervals for each stat type and increase amounts to ensure players get a more acute sense of improved character strength as Hero Levels increase.

- The details are as follows:

 

  A. ATK increases by a set amount of 100 with each level up.

  B. CRT stat increases added from LV 1 - 500. Upon reaching LV 500, a total of 220,000 CRT points will be acquired. (No more growth beyond LV 500)

  C. At LV 101, Final Damage increased by 200. Increases will be incremental per level up afterward (changed from increase by 10 every 100 levels).

  D. From LV 1000, Phys/Magic ATK up 1% every 100 levels. From LV 1500, up 3% every 100 levels. (20% upon reaching LV 2000)

 

- These improvements were made to ensure all players will feel their character growing stronger as they level up within each Hero Level interval.

 

(3) Improvements to Speed of Growth

- With the expansion of Hero Levels, players can now reach LV 1000, which was once the maximum level, much more quickly.

- We have expanded the maximum acquirable Hero EXP from 3,000,000 to 45,000,000 and have also increased the amount of Hero EXP obtained for clearing stages and Nests.

- In addition, players can acquire a great deal of Hero EXP from the Fragmented Labyrinth, which has been set as content that can be played once a week. (Please refer to the [Labyrinth Conquest] Fragmented Labyrinth Weekly Clear Reward breakdown within the patch notes for more details.)

- We have also added appropriate hurdles for progressing from levels 1000-1500, and made leveling up from 1501 onward an achievement for hardcore players. 

 

We hope these achievements make Hero Levels a more attractive element of the game.

 

-The maximum Hero Level has increased from 1000 to 2000.

-Additions/changes made to the stats increased through Hero Levels.

 

 

 

 

- Changes were made to the amount of Hero EXP acquired for clearing Nests and stages.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 2-4. Restructured Farming 

 

 

1. Stage Mission Rewards

- Stage Mission basic rewards are now made up of approximately 50 Gold; Blood, Sweat and Tears Points; Stage Points; and Alpaca Quest Items.

- When a stage Mission pops up, there is about a 10% chance of another Mission with additional rewards also appearing.

- For additional reward stage Missions, enhance material boxes and more than 500 Gold have been added as acquirable basic rewards.

 

 

2. Nest Mission Rewards

- Nest Mission basic rewards now feature about 150 Gold; Blood, Sweat and Tears Points; and Nest Points.

- When Nest Missions pop up, there is about a 10% chance of another Mission with additional rewards also appearing.

 2-8. Fatigue Restructured 

 

Changes made so fatigue (FTG) can now be accumulated daily.

The amount provided daily is 3600, and this will accrue even if players do not log in, through the maximum FTG limit cannot be surpassed.

Internet cafe FTG and Premium FTG remain unchanged.

You cannot received more FTG through Likes.

 

[Developer's Comment]

Before the changes, after getting daily FTG x1500/Like FTG x150/Daily Task Reward FTG x1500/weekly FTG x3000, players could accumulate a 7-day total of 25,050 FTG. This means players can currently get 3578 FTG per day.

This FTG restructuring will see the average fatigue accrued per day from Daily/Like/Task Reward/Weekly FTG increased slightly from the above 3578 to 3600.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 2-9. Skila Equipment Changes 

 

- Skila equipment enhancement is now available up to +20.
 

- [Enhance value reductions] no longer occur as a result of failed attempts to enhance Skila Equipment from +0 to +8 (8->9) as long as the required jelly is used.

.

- Reflecting this removal of enhance value reductions until +9, we have increased the amount of Lebrium Points consumed for enhancing this Skila Equipment from +2 to +9. Overall enhancement costs are the same as before, but most players will be able to enhance up to +9 for roughly the same average cost, without any of the previously existing huge cost discrepancies.
 

- There is a certain chance the equipment will be destroyed when attempting to enhance without the full amount of jelly required.
