A fair morning, afternoon, or evening to you, adventurers!
Matsui here with the usual version update rundown for February 10.
As you have likely guessed, February will bring with it the standard changes to Ambuscade. As you’ve probably guessed by one of the banners on the front page, one of the Ambuscades pits adventurers against fearsome adamantoises, while the other Ambuscade...well, why spoil the surprise?
We’ve also got some adjustments coming to omen. Players will be able to select which route they would like to take to the third area, including routes that do not have minibosses. This will allow players to more easily obtain job cards, and I hope you’ll pick a style that best suits your adventuring needs.
We’ve also got a couple more-than-minor-but-not-quite-major job adjustments in store. We took a look at balancing for enfeebling magic, songs, and geomancy colures and adjusted effect values where we deemed it appropriate. Coupled with adjustments to monster attributes, these changes should create a more strategic environment in which to use buffs and debuffs.
We’ve also got a special treat in store for the more synthesis-minded among you: synthesis guild-specific equipment known as “Escutcheons!” We’ve implemented the first step in the escutcheon questline, so give it a crack if you’re confident in your synthesizing prowess.
Finally, we’ve got another quest exploring another side of the Sacred City of Adoulin and a handful of alter ego adjustments.
Below is a table of all the goodies we’re planning on cramming into February. As always, some of these items are currently undergoing testing, and there may be some which might get pushed off to later version updates if any sudden issues rear their ugly heads.
