      In an effort to promote more competitive and fair party play, we are taking certain efforts to reduce the amount of underhanded tricks often used in MVPing. While we understand that this may not be a popular measure within certain MVPing parties, we believe it makes for a more fair gaming environment for everyone, not just certain parties.

      • The status effects of Gospel and Dancer/Bard songs are now removed upon logging out. These buffs are meant to be used in party play and were instead often being used for prebuffs, only to be utilized quickly on a parked character.
      • High-end MVPs now teleport when they come too close to a spawn portal in the map. This is done to prevent killing these MVPs by going in and out of the spawn portal. The following MVPs are affected:
        • All Biolabs 3 and 4 MVPs.
        • Ifrit
        • Valkyrie Randgris
        • Wounded Morocc
        • Kraken
        • Leak
        • Hardrock Mammoth
        • Tendrilion
      • Updated the Fighting Chant/Kihop skill:
        • Fixed a bug where it still counted the player who utilized the Fighting Chant skill. Now only the party members of the user count toward the ATK boost.
        • Limited the amount of party members that contribute towards the ATK boost to 6. This means that in a party of 7 or more, the total ATK boost is 60%. We will continue to monitor the usage of this skill and if needed will make adjustments.
        • Limited the amount of times multi clients can contribute towards the ATK boost:
          • When fighting MVPs, the amount of multi clients contributing is limited to 2.
          • When fighting normal monsters, the amount is limited to 3.
      • Surfer Swimsuit [1] and Antonio's Red Bag [1] when worn together now reduces Freeze Resistance by 20%. 
        • This was done in order to make room for new cards, as illustrated below.
      • Fixed some recent event items being usable in Vanilla. The following items can now no longer be used in Vanilla PvP/WoE/BG, but can still be used in certain Vanilla Events and ET:
        • Red Stocking Boots [1]
        • Antonio's Coat [1]
        • Antonio's Red Bag [1]
        • Surfer Swimsuit [1]
        • Oxygen Bottle [1]
        • Undine Spear [3]
        • Spoon [3]
        • Empty Liquor Bottle [3]
        • Detecting Staff [2]
        • Prison Uniform [1]
        • Thief Handcuff [1]
        • Shadow Staff [2]

      We are very excited to bring to you the next major wave of brand new cards added to the server! This time around, we're adding the remaining cards that we have yet to add before moving on to brand new content. These cards include Old Glast Heim, Eclage, and LH4! A few notes about these cards:

      • None of these cards can be used in Vanilla PvP/WoE/BG, but the non-MVP cards can be used in Vanilla PvM settings.
      • The non-MVP cards are only available as monster drop and will not be in the Talon Shop.
      • All MVP cards can be found in the Talon Shop at a cost of 2000 Talon Cash.
      • The Commander of Destruction Cards can be purchased from the Portait Collector NPC in Glast Heim together with the White Knight and Khalitzburg Knight Cards at a cost of 750 Coagulated Spells.

      • Fixed Volcano and Violent Gale not cancelling Wall of Fog if casted on top of a Wall of Fog instance.
      • Increased the maximum amount of units that any player can have at a time. This should fix the issue of Meteor Storm canceling out previously cast instances of the skill as well as a variety of other skills that rely heavily on a high amount of units.
      • Fixed certain weapon and shield related statuses from being dispelled when switching gears.
        • Most notably, this should fix the Maya Card.
        • This also fixes various other statuses from being dispelled, including but not limited to Adrenaline Rush, Gatling Fever, Reflect Shield and more!
        • This only applies if you switch to an item that ensures the status requirement still stands. So Auto Guard would still require you to switch to a Shield. If you were to switch to a Bow, the status would still end properly.

      In an ongoing effort to let the Valkyrie Bazaar offer more unique items and fewer items available elsewhere in the game, we have introduced two new bespoke items, available in Generalina's Store:

      • Ancient Branch:
        • This branch acts similarly to a Dead or Bloody Branch and can spawn a variety of monsters from the Battle of the Nine instances. Beware, the monsters spawned through this branch can be both very high-end as well as more common.
        • It can be purchased for 200 Valkyrie Coins.
        • This item is account-bound.
      • Old Victory Box:
        • A new reward box to test your luck! Will you get something common like a Bloody Branch or will you get lucky and find a Valkyrie Shield or Aegir Armor? It's up to the universe!
        • It can be purchased for 300 Valkyrie Coins.
        • This item is account-bound.

      In addition, a few adjustments have been made to existing items in the Bazaar:

      • Grape Juice Boxes and Large Defense Potions now cost 3 coins instead of 2.
      • Blue Potion Box now costs 8 coins instead of 7.
      • All Halter Lead Boxes now cost 2 coins more than before.
      • Chiqita's Jewelry Box now costs 15 coins instead of 10.
      • Ring[1] now costs 250 coins instead of 200.
      • Sniping Suit[1] now costs 300 coins instead of 250.
      • Valkyrja's Manteau[1] now costs 500 coins instead of 450.
      • Aegir Armor[1] now costs 800 coins instead of 700.
      • Yggdrasil Berry Box now costs 7 coins instead of 4.
      • Lv10 Food Bundle now costs 175 coins instead of 125.
      • Removed Box of Chocolates.
      • Like 2
      • Fsh 2
      • Love 7
      • No1 6
