● Caphras Enhancement system has been added.

- Caphras Enhancement is a system where you can release the potential of TRI (III) or higher weapons and defense gear with Caphras Stones.

- You can use this system by summoning the Black Spirit and selecting Enhancement > Caphras Enhancement.

- Caphras Enhancement can be done for up to level 20. PEN (V) gear can be enhanced until it reaches level 5, which is scheduled to be extended to level 20 with further updates.

- When you enhance a TRI (III) or higher weapon/defense gear with a Caphras Stone, you’ll get Caphras EXP acculumated to move onto the next level.

- The level rises when you cumulate an enough amount of Caphras EXP. A special effect will be given each Caphras Enhancement level.

- Button will be activated when you reach level 20.

- You can use to upgrade your gear to the next enhancement level (ex. TRI (III) -> TET (IV), TET (IV) -> PEN (V)).

- The durability of your gear should be 100 to upgrade it to the next enhancement level. After the enhancement, the maximum durability will fall to 0. Also, the existing Caphras Enhancement levels will reset.

- Please note that if the enhancement level of your gear drops (ex. TET (IV) -> TRI (III)) after enhancing it through normal means (using Black Stones) with cumulated Caphras EXP, only 50% of the EXP will be kept.

- On the other hand, if the enhancement succeeds with Caphras EXP (ex. TRI (III) -> TET (IV)), only 10% of the cumulated Caphras EXP will be carried forward to the next level.

- If you fail the enhancement using Cron Stones, 5% of the used Cron Stones will be converted into Caphras EXP.

- Blackstar Main Weapon cannot be enhanced with Caphras Stones.

- You cannot Devour a gear with Caphras Stone EXP.

 

● Please refer to [Caphras Enhancement] for the number of required Caphras Stones for Caphras Enhancement and increased ability for each level or item.

※ Ability given at each level is not stacked.

 

● The function to extract Caphras Stone from gear has been added.

- Find the Blacksmith in each town to extract Caphras Stones.

- Only approximately 95% of the Caphras Stones used for enhancement can be extracted.

- Enhancement level of the equipment will remain the same even if you extract Caphras Stone from it.

- 100,000 Silver is consumed to extract one Caphras Stone.

Nova

We have been going through feedbacks from Adventurers through the official website since Nova was released. And many have given us comments regarding Succession, particularly related to Axian. They said that it is difficult to respond quickly in emergency situations as most of the attacking motions of Nova are lengthy while Axian absorbs her HP. So we added an HP recovery effect to “Command: Rime Ice,” which is a frequently used skill with a relatively fast casting speed.

 

Next is about Nova having difficulties taking other actions when she is hit in the defense mode, as she gets knocked back for quite a distance. So, emphasizing the image of shield “Quoratum,” we improved the situation so that Nova is not knocked back while in “Quoratum’s Protection.”

 

Last but not least, Adventurers have commented that the casting speed of Nova’s Succession skills is generally slow. This is intended in some part, as we wanted to keep the concept of the main weapon Morning Star being a heavy, extendable weapon. However, for the seamless combat experience of our Adventurers, we increased the attacking and movement speed of Nova’s guards and Axian, and changed Axian’s attacks to be more threatening. Hence, the guards and Axian will now attack enemies at a higher speed upon Nova’s order

● Quoratum's Protection - Fixed issue where Icy Fog for normal stance would be cast instead of Icy Fog for Quoratum's Protection stance when using other skills during Quoratum's Protection stance.
 
Awakening
● Break Orbit - Fixed issue with stamina recovery delay when holding directional keys after using Break Orbit.
● Accel: Royal Fencing: Fleche - Fixed issue with the last hit of the skill not applying Super Armor Effects.
● Accel: Swooping Ring - Fixed issue with the last hit of the skill not applying Super Armor Effects.
● Royal Fencing: Riposte - Improved combo transitions to Royal Fencing: Riposte when shifting to automatic protection stance after using other skills during Quoratum's Protection.
