■ Hero

 

| All  

- Added Passive skill for all heroes.  

> You can check out the passive skill information at the top right of the hero selection screen and at the bottom left of the screen upon entering the battlefield.

[Dev Note]

Since the beginning of Shadow Arena, passive skills were special traits that were unique to each Heroes. However, without playing, let alone the skills being difficult to grasp, the features in the skill description were listed in a lengthy and disorganized way.  

To resolve this, we made improvements so that passive skills of each Hero can be checked immediately as well as add new passive skills that fit accordingly to the Hero’s trait. We will continue to monitor the changes that occurs with the addition of new passive skills and make further improvements.

Ataraxia's Garden of Roses was a skill that could trap enemies, yet it was difficult for the inflicted opponent to deal with this skill.

- Added new Arenas (What Plantation, Heidel).  

> The new arenas can be checked at a set probability upon entering Deathmatch mode.

[Dev Note] 

The new Deathmatch arena, Wheat Plantation and Heidel, will have slightly different rules from the existing Deathmatch. First, the flow of the arena system will not be applied and normal monsters or treasure chests will appear so players can obtain drop items. Additionally, if you respawn, you will naturally leave the battle area, so in the preliminary stages, battles will be held in smaller-scale engagements in the outskirts of the region, and in the latter half, you will have to bear the risk of being inflicted fog damage when you die. We look forward to the various situations to occur on the new battlefield
