[ System ] The game client will try reconnecting several times after being disconnected due to unexpected network error. This feature will not function if the client is closed. Fixed the chat type tag in German and French. The language filter will now work properly. Default setting is set at International. Fixed the issue that shut down the client from time to time after starting a match in Arena of Arsha.

The maid panel scroll will not be reset when changing regions. All Classes The Stamina consumption of the following classes with the main weapon in combat and non-combat stance has been adjusted. Warrior, Ranger, Sorceress, Berserker, Tamer, Musa, Maehwa, Valkyrie, Witch, Wizard, Kunoichi, Ninja Ranger Relatively higher level of EP consumption for skills forced Rangers to use a lot of MP Potions. To solve this problem, we have updated the following skills: Using the skill Breezy Blade will now recover 10EP per hit. (Not if it is used during cooldown) Using the skill Elven Rage will now recover 15 MP(EP) per hit. Using the skill Flow: Disillusion will now recover 20 MP(EP) per hit. TheEP recovery amount of the skill Wailing Wind has been increased. (Not during cooldown) Customized hair-styles now look more natural. Fixed the issue where the image of underwear gloves are partially removed when both Stella Outfit and Queen Heart Underwear are equipped. Berserker Berserkers have been experiencing problems in the early stages of gameplay due to low Accuracy and Damage while requiring high WP consumption. This makes it difficult for Berserkers to grind so we are applying the below adjustments to balance out this issue. A new effect “Accuracy +13.5%” has been added to the skill Flow: Slugfest. The Critical Hit Rate of the skill Seizing Fear has been increased from 5% to 10%, and a new effect “Accuracy +5%” has been added. Damage of the skill Devastation has been increased. (Damage reduced in PvP.) The duration of enemy’s movement/attack/casting speed decrease debuff from the skill Devastation has been increased from 5 sec. to 10 sec.

Tamer Fixed the issue where changing Standby Expression in the customization screen was not being applied correctly on combat stance. Valkyrie We have reduced certain skills’ stamina consumption and cooldown time, while also increasing the overall damage in PvE for better grind-efficiency. This was due to Valkyries requiring a large stamina consumption while having relatively small AoE attacks during grinding. The Stamina consumption of the skill Promptness has been reduced to 100. The cooldown time of the skill Promptness has been reduced to 5 sec. Damage of the skill Promptness has been increased. (Damage reduced in PvP.) 806% x2 → 1048% x2 The cooldown time of the skill Hastiludium has been reduced.

[Only Wizard] The skill Lava Field can now be used while moving. Fixed the issue that caused the Wizard to stop sprinting when transitioning to the non-combat stance while sprinting on awakening combat stance. The skill Lava Field can now be used through Quick Slot normally while the Wizard is standing still. [Only Witch] Movement of Tett became more natural for all Flow skills. Fixed the issue where the Witch would momentarily stop while using the skill Toxic Flood in motion, which was different from Wizard’s version. Fixed the graphical glitch on the character’s hair after putting on Rakshande Helmet. The stockings from Jasmine Garter Belt Underwear will not show through Acher Guard Shoes. Musa Fixed the issue where the actual increase rate of evasion was applied lower than what is stated in the skill description of Maneuver Training. The following Crescent Blade skills’ cooldown time has been adjusted to make more Flow skills available as it wasn’t readily available before and forced users to repeat the same skills due to the long cooldown time. Cooldown time of the skill Below the Belt has been decreased. Cooldown time of the skill Fiery Crevice has been decreased, and frontal guard effect has been added. Maehwa Fixed the issue where the actual increase rate of evasion was applied lower than what is stated in the skill description of Maneuver Training.

Connecting from Wheel of Wrath to Flow: Indignation has become a bit smoother. The motion for the skill Sah Spree of Sonan has become quicker. Connecting from Danse Macabre to other skills has become a bit smoother. Dark Knight Dark Knight was the only class which can sustain a long duration of the Invincible state by chaining certain skills. With the long duration invincibility state in mind, our team determined after a lengthy analysis of internal testing data the following changes would be applied to the Dark Knight: These changes will still allow Dark Knight players to enjoy almost the same style of gameplay during PvE, however, in PvP proper usage and timing for skills will be crucial to winning. The stamina consumption for the skills Dusk and Chain: Dusk have been adjusted to 250. The Invincible effect of the skill Smoky Haze has been changed to Super Armor. Dusk and Chain: Dusk can now be used during cooldown time. Invincible effect is not available if used during cooldown time, and 50 Stamina will be consumed. In order to maximize the effect of these movement/evasion type skills that no longer include the invincibility effect (During Cooldown) after this update, players can now use the skills themselves even during cooldown. Following skills will not have the Stamina recovery effect: Twilight Dash, Spirit Hunt, Trap of Vedir, Shattering Darkness, Flow: Bombardment, Smoky Haze Fixed the graphical glitch that caused the overlapping of [Dark Knight] Venia Riding Attire and the Vediant. Striker Using the Flow: Mass Destruction will not cause collision while moving, and it can now be used during cooldown time.

Using the following skills under Martial Spirit state will incur MP(EP)/SP/WP decrease effect to target: Ultimate Crush, Spiral Cannon, Flow: Crosswind, Fallout, Ferocious Assault. Sustaining the Martial Spirit state now consumes 25 WP every 3 seconds instead of 50 WP. Fixed the discrepancy between the actual Evasion bonus stat and the stated value of the skill Howling Wolf. Putting on Dim Tree Spirit's Armor after dying Blazing Inferno Gloves should no longer interfere with showing the correct colors. The size of the Marketplace registration batch for the following items has been increased: Ingots, Crystals (mineral), Gemstones, Plywoods, Reform Stones, Supreme Hide/Fur/Feather, Bloods, Oils, some Food Items, Mount Recovery Items, Traveler's Map. The 4 and 6-set effects of the Jarette’s Accessories have been changed to 3- and 5-set effects. Pearl Shop Update [Mount] Fixed the issue where a character under Lv. 50 on a mount could be attacked by other characters. [Content] Savage Rift is now open. You can now join the new mode on the channels 2, 4, 5, 6 of each channel group. Players will be granted 30 points upon starting the Savage Rift. The time limit for the bosses from stages 5, 10, 15, and 20 of the Savage Rift has been adjusted to 5 minutes. The next stage will start if players fail to defeat the bosses within the time limit. If the boss is defeated, the next stage will start 30 seconds after that moment. Now you can synthesize higher-grade WP/SP potions with lower-grade potions through Simple Alchemy. Fixed the issue where character’s life level bonus for repair time was not being applied in repairing forts during Conquest/Node Wars. Fixed the issue where it was impossible to build a Field HQ even with two Lv. 3 nodes. The condition for using Field HQ has been changed. Any guild that wishes to participate in the Conquest War of Calpheon, Mediah, and Valencia Territories can purchase and use the Field HQ. When the target is moving, Ancient Kutum’s ranged attack will hit the initial target location instead of just following it.

Fixed the issue where the buff description tooltip in the upper left corner would not disappear after removing the cursor off the icons. Fixed the special action button in the Pearl Shop to work correctly. A system message window will appear if a server change fails. The “new” badge on the BDO TV icon now blinks. Fixed the issue that changed the color of system message with a certain color when there was a line break.
