A special effect dialogue is family sharing. - Currently, there are two pieces of sheet music worn at Artini's instrument store,'Glory of Calpheon' and'Feast of Florin'. ● Artini's music journal category has been added to the adventure journal → travel journal knowledge category. ● The following titles have been added in relation to Artini's score request. - Shut outgoing - ppok ppokppok ppok ppokppok! ● The performance ranks that can be checked in the My Information (P) window have been consolidated by family. - Characters that have reached the highest rank C- in existence will be merged into the family performance rank C-. - If there are multiple characters that have accumulated playing experience points, the playing experience points accumulated by each character are all added up and the family playing rank is updated. - However, you must acquire the performance experience value yourself at least once through a daily performance request, and the combined performance experience cannot exceed the highest rank C-. - As the performance ranks have been integrated into the family, the number of notes and bars of characters that cannot be played are also adjusted to the rank of the family, and the restrictions on composition have been eased. ● An option to allow editing of composed score has been added. - When sharing the composed sheet music, you can use the sheet music editing restriction function. - Sheet music with limited editing of score cannot be re-shared and edited when downloaded, and can only be played. - However, before the above function is applied, the scores registered in the existing music album can be edited. Since the composition and performance system was updated, many adventurers have enjoyed this content. Especially in Taiwan, Thailand, Southeast Asia, Turkey, and Russia, concerts using self-composed songs were held, gaining great popularity among adventurers. As more people enjoy it than expected, today's update has added two more instruments to the three instruments we were originally preparing. I hope it will be a small gift to adventurers around the world who have consistently suggested adding instruments. The added instrument was made for'beginners', but in the future for intermediate and advanced players, we want to add elements such as so-called'beep', so-called'beep', along with a richer sound in the future. We are also considering ways to enhance the accessibility of the process of playing and listening to the composed song so that more people can directly and indirectly harmonize.

First of all, in the case of the first stage, the attack power and defense power limits have been lowered so that it can be approached more smoothly than general base battles, as it can be the first target for guilds preparing for base battles. There are also restrictions. In particular, in the case of vitality, it is structured to be stable at the beginning and the maximum value decreases over time, so that teamwork and concentration become more important as the second half goes on. In the case of the 2nd stage, there was no original limit, but we have added a 270/320 limit so that guilds who enjoy small base battles or guilds dedicated to base battles gathered with like-minded people can face and enjoy similar conditions with even more people. In addition, we are testing in a number of ways to solve the so-called'albac-i' problem. There are discussions on how to set the initial fort cost high, return the cost to the guilds who participated in the battle after entering the battle and return the cost in the concept of payback only to the guild that participated in the battle, and to check the number of people when the battle is over and collect the tax. We will do our best to make the base war more enjoyable for more adventurers.
