[DEV Notes]

We are trying to take two big directions for the item selections. First, we are adding new features that will help the player's own unique combat style or game choice. For example, "Crimson Blade" added in this update allows the player to engage longer in fights through consistent hits. Also it could be used by players who prefer leading the flow of combat even without the help from Supports. 

Secondly, we are making efforts to create a compatibility concept that does not focus on the functions of each item. We increased the defense efficiency in the last patch and released "Elion's Long Spear" for players to break that strong defense, but as the maximum level of Ignore DP was capped, it seemed to have become an unsolvable problem. Therefore, we have deleted the limitations for purchasing certain items with special effects as we concluded that it would limit the diverse strategies players can take in the battle. Now, players will be able to stick to certain concepts and build on them. However, we will continue to monitor consistently and make specific balancing to prevent a possible situation where a majority of players would lean to a certain style.

  

 

 UI  

  

Location of Party Members 

The location and distance of party members unseen on the screen will be shown. 

  

Buff Effect 

When gaining certain buffs, their effects will be shown on the right side of the Hero. 

  

Monster / Objective Timeline 

Added a timeline UI that shows when major objectives or monsters appear. 

  

Assist 

Added a feature to the in-game information where kill assists are recorded for players who have contributed to defeating an enemy. 

Assists will be counted if a player buffs the ally or attacks the enemy together within 5 seconds of their death. 

  This information will also be displayed in the result chart and party status UI with further updates. 

   

Added descriptions to icons 

 Added details to the description shown when hovering your mouse over the following icons: 

 

<Hero Selection Window>  

Black Spirit Skills 

Preset Items 

Hexagonal graph showing the Hero’s battle type 

   

<In-game>  

Party Bonus  

Blackstar Fragment  

Basic Stats 

Token(s)


[DEV Notes] 

Players will be able to identify in-game information more intuitively through the UI.
The timeline UI will help players to set up a strategy and focus on the combat as they can check when certain objectives will appear in the arena and where their allies are at the moment. 

 
 

 AI Players 

 

Fixed the issue where the minimap or World Map icon would not disappear upon death. 
- Changed the player Hero to attack the aimed enemy when the AI party member is not in battle or the player’s HP is low. 

Fixed the issue where AI players would intermittently try to attack allies. 

Changed AI Bots to not loot items. 

Changed AI players to have HP Potions as a default setting. 

Changed AI players to purchase recommended items. 
Fixed the skill cooldown and damage to be identical to the actual stats of the Hero. 

Fixed the issue where players would stun when hit by a basic attack while using a skill. 
Fixed the issue where the ranks would be displayed abnormally when an AI player ascends. 

  

 

 Fixes and Improvements  

 
Changed the other player’s nickname to be seen during the battle. 
Changed the display of the inactivation icons to be shown one minute before Shadow Lords, Ancient Relics, and the Light of Ascension appear.  
Fixed the issue where the icons showing the inactive status of objectives would not disappear on the World Map even after they have turned active. 
Improved Pings and chat macros to be shown in the language set by the player. 
Changed the location of the remaining time section in the Hero Selection Window to become more closer to the selection button. 
Fixed the issue where you could invite players to your party from the clan chat. 
Changed party match function so players will be matched with AI players and not higher ranking players until they play at least 4 matches in Trio Mode.


[DEV Notes] 

 As Hero Status information is applied in-gamewe will enable checking the other player’s name to easily grasp the enemy’s informationFor possible backfires of this update regarding co-op with other teams, we will enable players to use the "Report" function in Spectator Mode, during battles, or on the Game Results screen.
