As we’ve informed through ‘From B’, we have plans to provide new experience for players by updating equipments and contents every 3 months after the next big update.
However, if we continue to update the current equip enhancement system with such time cycle, you will feel the equipments you’ve invested will lose their value way too quickly. Therefore we’ve decided that the biggest problem with current enhancement system is the fact of being unable to fix the main issue of inconvenience players are feeling.
To fix this problem, after the big update that has been planned, current equipments’ ‘attribute change’ and ‘potential awakening’ system will be removed. Instead, the Rune system will take place.
Different from current system where you target the equipment itself to be enhanced,
you can now increase your character’s ability by setting rune on your equipment’s groove.
Rune can be developed through enhancement, and will wield stronger ability as the rank of the rune or enhancement level is higher.
You are able to remove the rune from the equipment and attach it to another equipment. So you could continue to use the rune that you’ve invested in.
Combination of rune based on stats
The type of stats where you can set rune differs into 2 types: Offense and Defence.
And the type of runes that you can attach for each type differs as well.
You can specialize your character’s ability in various ways throughout using the combination of rune that has limited slot.
Obtaining rune and enhancement
We see the rune along with the current equipments, as an important method for enhancing character’s ability throughout the investment. Therefore the way of obtaining runes will be through various routes including PvE and PvP, so that players can have easy access to it.
Maintaining the value of current equipments
The most important thing from the enhancement system update was to keep the value of the current equipments players have as much as possible after the new equipment system.
To solve this problem, in other words, to revive the value of synis that player already owns and to enable players to reinvest the amount of investment they’ve made on current equipments, we’ve decided to create ‘Synis store (temporary name)’ in upcoming updates.
By using the synis that can be obtained from potential extraction system which will be maintained even after the update, players will be able to obtain the currency needed for runes along with the new enhancement system. Also, the amount of synis that gets extracted increases more depending on the potential level of the equipment rather than the rank of the equipment (such as tempest and abyss).
We expect that there will be many changes to the gameplay through this update.
We are at the phase where we listen to players’ feedbacks and polishing the detailed plans.
We will do our best for the players to enjoy the new system without much inconvenience after the update is done.
