The next version update is scheduled for mid-October.

Next month's featured item is a cipher of Ark Angel HM, meaning that the five Ark Angel alter egos are together at last!

Other updates include the monthly revisions to Ambuscade, additional weapon skill help text stating which weapon skills have which skillchain attributes, and more!

Announcing the October Version Update

Greetings, adventurers!
Matsui here with the skinny on the next version update.

This month we’re bringing the update to you on Eleven Day, just like we did in September. Coincidence? That’s an exercise I’ll leave to the reader.

First up, we’re proud to bring you the fifth Ark Angel alter ego--Ark Angel HM! Almost a year has passed since the first in the series, Ark Angel GK, and the group is now together at last! If you call them all forth at the same time, a special effect becomes active. Here’s a little hint: it has something to do with an elemental magic adjustment we made to Divine Might many moons ago.

Next, we’ve got the usual monthly changes to Ambuscade, but this time we’re adding new rewards as well! This month’s foes are really getting into the Harvest Festival spirit, and you may find some tips for dealing with them if you think about special events that happen in October.

We’re also implementing several quality-of-life improvements. Specifically, the forums have been abuzz about changes to Conquest, and we’ve decided to change the point calculations so that areas with battlefields no longer count. This should help alleviate some of the issues we’ve seen with diminishing player control.

Below please find a list of items coming in October. As usual, unexpected issues may arise at the last minute, but we’re working our utmost to ensure that we get these into your hands with the next version update.

Wow, the Peacekeeper equipment change is nice for mules (and will be for newbies too!). I was tired of them wearing 117 junk and feeling like utter wimps when I tried to do anything with them.

And also, FINALLY the alternate ambuscade set gets its +1s and matching rings. 'bout time, yeesh. Now they just need to make both sets available every month and be done with it.

Also, the conquest change is nice, tired of most regions being beastman controlled all the time too. Always wondered what was causing the ridiculous surge in beastman control... now I know.
