    Hello everyone!


    We know you all have been waiting for this for a while, and even though that may be an understatement for some of you, we're also really happy to say that indeed, today is the day.


    At last, it has arrived! The Necromancer is here! And so are a few other features, so lets take a look at what's new.





    Content additions:

    • New playable class: 

      The Necromancer. Highly awaited, this new class will enable you to fight with a new weapon type, the Scythe.

      Of course, with this new class comes with new Secret Stones and Enchantment cards to boost up your Necromancer's spells as well as his 6 minions.



    • New Guild Instance system: 

      A new feature has been added for all the guilds out there to try out. It includes both Solo and Group battles which will enable you to obtain Guild Contribution points.

      The more battles you participate in and complete, the more points you get. Obtaining a certain amount of these will unlock rewards, such as Cyril's Key Fragments!


      Note: Players will have to have been in a guild for at least 24h beforehand to be able to participate.



    • New Eidolons: 

      Athena and Cyril are two new Eidolons that have now been implemented in the game.



    • New Eidolon 3-Star evolutions: 

      Aelius and Vayu can now be evolved into their third form.



    • New Gear Type: 

      Gaia Emblems. You can now equip this new type of gear onto your character. Gaia emblems can only be obtained if you have a certain score of Eidolon Points and can be purchased in Navea from the <Senior Eidolon Researcher> at coordinates X:804 Y:605.


    • Christmas Events:

      Two new Christmas daily event quests have been added. Here are the locations of the NPCs for these quests:

      Port Skandia: coordinates X:278 Y:608

      Candeo Marsh: coordinates X:196 Y:245


    • New items:

      New mounts, new back/weapon/head/body costumes, as well as new costume Fusion Scrolls have been added to the game database.


    Content Changes:
