Dear friends,

Unfortunately, we hadn’t managed to prepare this patch as scheduled. So, only about 15% of existing abilities were added to the project. The main issues that we are fixing at the moment are quests and quest rewards that give abilities.

Bear in mind that during PT #3, the team is working quickly, meaning that most changes enter the build after not being thoroughly tested. Even adding Vocations had to be mixed with fixing more serious issues that were revealed during this test.

Thank you for your understanding.


  • Instance-to-Instance transition (test version):
    • on the right side of the location name, there’s a button that brings up a window to send an instance transition request;
    • there, you should enter the ID of the instance to transfer to;
    • the ID of your instance can be found in this window;
    • you may learn the other ID from your friend or send them yours;
  • Vocations:
    • max level Vocation limits were turned off temporarily;
    • when you join a Vocation, you receive one main ability, but you can also get 1-2 additional abilities from the quest giver in Harbur;

  • General balance:
    • increased XP rates for characters of levels 1-15 three times, and for levels 15-30 - two times;
    • increased the DPS of items for characters at levels 1-15, which also makes leveling easier;
      • level 8.8 can be reached in 15 minutes after leaving the Tutorial Tavern;
  • Weapon balance: in the final days of tests, we dramatically changed the approach to weapon physics and stats;
    • 2h weapon physics was made more “comfortable”;

    • magic: projectile speed was decreased 1,5 - 3 times depending on the element;
    • melee weapon damage was increased by 3-25%, including the change in randomization ranges;
    • magic damage was increased by 25-100% depending on powder level;

    • castle guard was made 2 times weaker;
    • all AIs no longer can receive tech buffs;
