Percival Patch 2 - Ver. 1.15.383 / REV 147232 - 31 July 2019

Guild Season 7 Changes

  • Guild Challenge: guild members can now earn Challenge Points by gathering, killing creatures, fishing, and farming, as with Adventurer's Challenges. At certain thresholds, these points will provide Season Points to the member's guild.
  • Number of tower levels in Crystal Realm Battle system: 3 → 7
  • GvG attack times have been consolidated to make it harder for one team member to fight multiple GvGs in a day
  • GvG notification messages now more clearly state conditions leading to counterattacks, decisive victories, and whether or not Silver is returned
  • Changes to Siphoning Mages:
    • Channel duration of Ice Block increased to 20 seconds
    • When channel is started, three Summoned Guardians appear
    • Guardians are normal mobs if less than 8 players are attacking the mage, Veteran mobs if 8 or more players attacking
    • Guardians drop an area that replenishes player energy

  • The time window in which a castle can be captured has been greatly reduced (time between castle mob spawns: 15m → 3m)
