SECRETLY LEAKED DETAILS OF 1.8
NCSoft leaks some of their update details to get attention... thats how they roll.
These are the details... if these are applied, Zapiel's Spear will rise more in prices ^^
I took these from a server specific forum.
This is a big update, but I'll tell you a few things about it.
Leaked the information about 1.5 before that turned out to be right... so you can choose to trust me or not.
1. AP Gain System Change
Until now, if a rank 9 killed a 1 star he/she would gain more AP than a rank 5 killing 1 star, but now if the rank difference is more than 5, you gain less AP.
This will prevent mass suicidal kill attempts on you (if you are high rank) just to get your kill.
2. Ground Abyss
Well thats about it. Theres gonna be a ground Abyss.
3. Dredgion's Appearance
Dredgion will appear much more frequently during sieges and will take forts much more often.
Also Seed of Detection II will be added which will allow Hide II to be seen.
4. Alliance Dredgion
They say there will be a dredgion with multiple teams going in. With 3 teams on each side, but not like forming an alliance then going in like in sieges.
5. Defensive Godstones
Theres gonna be defensive godstones. Its gonna be something like 10% proc rate heal 890 hp, 2% proc remove all CC from yourself.
These trigger not upon hitting with your weapon, but on receiving attacks.
6. Divine Abyss Points, Divine Medals
These new things can only be gained through PvP. They say these can be gained only from other PCs. For the points you'll need to just PvP. And theres gonna be quest to earn Divine Medals through a certain amount of kills. Really focusing on PvP.
7. Manastones and ASPD Items change
This is for balancing, but theres gonna be a different way of being able to slot manastones.
Manastones for spear, manastones for daggers, manastones for greatswords... are gonna have different levels of manastones available for them. Also, items with ASPD will have a lower accuracy. Probably because everyone looks forward to ASPD items.
8. Tezo's Instance
Like I said earlier theres gonna be ground abyss, which means there will be forts, which also means there will be Abyss Instances. This is not a new map, but sort of like Fire Temple/Draupnir Cave type. Mobs in this instance will also be placed randomly each time you enter, its gonna be challenging/annoying.
9. Item Level Upgrade
Note: I dont quite get this part, and so does this guy... but here I go
No level cap raise, but theres gonna be sort of an item upgrading system. At level 50, you can upgrade your item so that it goes up a grade.
I didnt quite get this part at first so I listened more
No level cap raise, but you can level your item like normal leveling your character and it will upgrade.
Something like 3 levels... like level one will have 300 atk, level two will have 350, level three 400. Same weapon, but get more out of it.
