Major Updates – Family Inventory

● Shakatu, the Valencian Mogul, discovered a special ancient artifact at Cantusa Desert and has called upon adventurers to visit Shakatu's Territory. After witnessing the ancient artifact, adventurers have dubbed it the "Family Inventory".

What is a Family Inventory?

- Family Inventory is a convenient bag that all characters in the same Family have access to. However, only consumable items listed below can be placed in the Family Inventory.

 

1) Scrolls

2) Food

3) Elixirs

4) Worker Stamina Recovery Food

5) Pet Feed

6) Seals and Currency from certain content

7) Instant resurrection items

8) Horse, Camel, Elephant – Stamina and HP Recovery Items

 

– The Family Inventory can be obtained through quests or through the Pearl Shop by purchasing the Family Inventory Slot Coupon with Pearls or Loyalties, which creates a "Family Inventory" category (RT/R2) within the Inventory menu.

– Starting weight of Family Inventory is 100LT. The Family Inventory can be expanded up to 26 slots witha Pearl item or Loyalties.

– Please note that the below items cannot be moved to the Family Inventory.

1) Items bound to characters

2) Items purchased from the Guild Shop

3) Content-specific items (such as Guild or Red Battlefield items)

4) Certain event items

- Items that do not have “Can be placed in the Family Inventory” in their item description cannot be placed in the Family Inventory. Check out the item’s tooltip for more details.

 

● Added quest to obtain the Family Inventory.

- Accept Black Spirit Suggested Quest [Shakatu's Gift] Invitation (Lv. 60 and above) to receive a Family Inventory +2 Expansion Coupon.

- The quest can be viewed in both Quest List - Recommended tab and [Lv. 60] Bag of the Stars in the New Quest tab. Quests related to Shakatu’s hidden gifts will not be shown separately.

- This quest is only available once per family.

● Added a new quest to increase the weight of your Family Inventory by 50LT. Adventurers who've completed "[Shakatu's Gift] Bag of the Stars" can accept either "[Dellus' Gift] Shakatu's Message" from Dellus or "[Raomi's Gift] Shakatu's Message" from Raomi nearby, then complete the quest to receive the reward.

- You can only complete each quest once per family.

- You can choose to proceed with either Dellus' Gift or Raomi's Gift.

- While both quests share the same quest objectives and reward, you will obtain a different title upon completion.

 

Over the past few years, we’ve had many voices from all over the world requesting a family-shared inventory space. We thought having the Maid/Butler system and the addition of the Central Market would satisfy this need, but the requests were still frequent. So we decided to finally add the Family Inventory. However, only certain types of items can be placed in the Family Inventory. You can obtain the Family Inventory via a quest, which will start you off with 2 slots and 100 LT. Slot expansion coupons can be purchased with Pearls and Loyalties.
