I’m actually excited about this. I love when games put in seasonal events, somehow it makes the game relate to real life a bit more which is fun. I also just love easter egg hunts irl so I’m like a giant 3 year old in that way. haha. 

Item Changes

  • Required level for Megaphone has been increased to 20.
    • This has been done to hinder goldsellers from abusing this item.
  • Required level for gifting has been increased to 20.
  • Flare can now be registered on the Market Place.
    • The flare will be craftable soon.
  • Registration prices for Flashbang, Fireshot, and Poison Shot have been increased.
  • Gold Bar has been added to drop list from Field Boss reward packages.

These are pretty cool changes. I look forward to seeing what else they make craftable. Less pay for connivence more crafting! yay!

Mech Changes

  • Pet exchange button was added.
    • In order to exchange, the generation difference between the pets must be 1 or fewer.
  • Skill effect window was added next to the pet list window. The skill effect window shows the total skill effect of all the accompanying pets, and if pets do not have any skills, the window will not appear. (You can check the total value of a pet’s skill from the pet info window.)
  • When exchanging pets, the new pet can inherit one of its parent’s skills. You can choose to inherit or not.
    • If the number of the inherited skills does not surpass the new pet’s skill capacity, the skill slots will be filled with extra random skills.
  • Changes in Pet Skill
    • Any EXP boost effect of the same type from a pet will be overlapped.
      • IF three summoned pets each have an effect of Combat EXP +3%, the total bonus will give +9%.
      • However, one pet cannot acquire the same type of duplicate skill.
    • Bonuses from summoned pets are now cumulative.
    • Pets will get a specific number of skills based on their tier.
      • Tier 1-2: 1 skill, Tier 3: 2 skills, Tier 4: 3 skills
  • Function to take out all the pets was added.
  • Pet Categories and Skills: Pets are categorized into Domestic, Aves, Wild, and Monsters. Each pet has a high chance of learning main and common skills with an abysmal chance of learning different types of skills.
    • Common: Combat EXP Increase, Karma Recovery Increase
    • Domestic (Dog, Cat, etc.): Cooking/Alchemy/Processing/Farming EXP +
    • Aves (Hawk, etc.): Fishing +1, Fishing/Hunting/Training/Trade EXP +
    • Monster (Snowman, etc.): Gathering +1, Gathering EXP +
    • EXP skills gained from exchanging pets will increase by 3%.
  • Exp from fishing has been adjusted based on the grade of what is caught.
  • The command /Rescue is disabled.  This has been done to prevent players from using it as a way to escape combat and avoid death.  Instead players can use the Rescue button found on the ESC Menu to escape being stuck in terrain.
  • Chat Messages being overlapped in chat has been fixed.

Umm so I was under the impression that pet breading wasn’t in the game yet. When was it added? Or is this leading up to it become active? If you know the answer please leave me a comment! I would love to know! ❤
