9/1 Patch Note

Dungeon

Destroyed Gateway to God’s Realm Balance Adjustments

Phase 3

Increased Vergoth’s Defense
Increased damage from center breath attack
Increased Flame/Dust Sphere’s HP
Increased damage from Flame/Dust Sphere’s explosion
Increased Shield HP for each part of body during Shield Mechanic
Increased damage received per tick from Lava Puddle
Increased Defense during Berserk**

Developer’s Comment

It has been confirmed that the difficulty of current Phase 3 was severely lacking. Due to this, it had lost is honorable meaning behind its clear and could not properly act as a bridge to Phase 4, so its difficulty was greatly increased.

Loriri’s Comment

Berserk is a term KTERA use to describe something like Queen’s walk, Desolarus 15% enrage, Fulminar’s 15% enrage, and Dakuryon’s 15% enrage. This is simply a status that has a special effect to them such as increased damage, increased attack speed, sometimes decreased defense after reaching certain amount of HP. Because this mechanic is so common, KTERA coined the term as Berserk Phase or Berserk Status.

Phase 4

Reduced the amount of player’s damage increase from “Flow of Divine Energy” effect.**
Increased Shield HP for each part of body during Shield Mechanic when Vergoth is below 50% HP
Increased damage received per tick from Lava Puddle
Increased Defense during Berserk**

Developer’s Comment

The difficulty of Phase 4 seems to be at the appropriate level as intended. However, skipping mechanics by burring down Vergoth’s HP quickly thanks to the damage buff received from “Flow of Divine Energy” did not seem to be a appropriate method to clear the hardest dungeon, so it had been adjusted. Also, despite having many raid members dead, some mechanics were easily dealt without much difficulty. This was adjusted because it was losing the meaning of taking immediate actions and the fun behind it. Therefore, the difficulty of Phase 4 will be slightly increased, but we expect that raids that can cope with these situations wouldn’t have too much difficulty.

Loriri’s Comment

“Flow of Divine Energy” is something I just made up because my translation skill is lacking. The original text reads “God’s Realm’s Mana” or simply “Godly Mana” but it just doesn’t sound fancy and pretty much cringy.
I mentioned and explained Berserk above. “

Celestial Arena’s Rank 1 Reward rate and amounts are adjusted

Mid-tier Arborean Essence reward is increased to 12
Rakelith Necklace, Ring, and Earring drops are greatly reduced in Rank 1 reward
Increased efficiency of rewarding Crystal Box, Lilith’s Treasure, and Colluva ore

Developer’s Comment

Although the accessories drop rate have been lowered to match other dungeons that drops them, we have increased other reward to compensate for the lowered farming efficiency.**

Loriri’s Comment

Farming Efficiency, you might be wondering why, but KTERA’s Semi-Enigmatic Scrolls are ridiculously expensive, about 10x of NA. (I remember seeing 300g per on NA TR, 3k on KTERA Velik server.). So KTERA players actually farm jewelries until they get the perfect roll instead of rerolling them. They only use Semis if they’re rich, desperate, or if they’re rerolling crafted jewelries.

Quest

Increased amount of feedstock reward from Lv 65 one-time guide quests

Echoes of Aranea 300 Tier 9 feedstock
Ace Dungeon 400 Tier 9 feedstock
