    Event-related

    ======================================
    The content of this version update, which includes new expert jobs and new areas, may not be played until Wednesday, March 27 (PDT) or Thursday, March 28 (GMT) even if the necessary software and expansion content has been installed earlier.
    ======================================

    Seekers of Adoulin brings with it several new items displayed in the main menu as outlined below.

    Missions
    Seekers of Adoulin
     
    Quests
    Adoulin
    Coalitions
     
    Region Info.
    Colonization
     
    Status
    Monstrosity*

    Name: Event01.jpg Views: 33 Size: 23.3 KB
    * Monstrosity will be selectable once the content is introduced into the game.

    The following areas have been introduced with Seekers of Adoulin:

    Western Adoulin / Eastern Adoulin / Rala Waterways / Rala Waterways [U] / Yahse Hunting Grounds / Ceizak Battlegrounds / Foret de Hennetiel / Morimar Basalt Fields / Sih Gates / Moh Gates / Cirdas Caverns / Cirdas Caverns [U]

    The Grand Duchy of Jeuno is now recruiting adventurers for the colonization movement on the continent of Ulbuka.
    Name: Event02.jpg Views: 27 Size: 22.8 KB
    Additionally, several coalitions support these pioneering activities. Read on for details.

    Many additional stories and quests are available in areas accompanying Seekers of Adoulin.
    Name: Event03.jpg Views: 21 Size: 20.7 KBName: Event04.jpg Views: 26 Size: 22.8 KB

    Defeating monsters in Seekers of Adoulin areas will occasionally cause a strange mirage known as a "Soul Pyre" to appear.
    If the player touches a Soul Pyre from the proper distance and direction, he will receive items and/or bayld.

    Gathering activities in the Seekers of Adoulin expansion areas are governed by a new rule.
    Continuing to gather resources in the same area will build a character's fatigue, much like fishing, but will also gradually increase the likelihood of gathering better materials.
    * Moving to a new area will reset both effects.
    * Fatigue recovers over time.

    Certain pieces of equipment and key items that aid in gathering activities throughout Eastern Ulbuka have also been introduced.

    New battle content known as "Reives" have been added.
    Name: Event05.jpg Views: 22 Size: 30.9 KBName: Event06.jpg Views: 21 Size: 38.0 KBName: Event07.jpg Views: 22 Size: 32.9 KBName: Event08.jpg Views: 24 Size: 30.9 KB

    New battle content in an alternate world known as "Skirmish" has been introduced. Read on for details.
    Name: Event09.jpg Views: 21 Size: 23.3 KB

    The following adjustments have been made to the Nyzul Isle Uncharted Area Survey Assault content.
    Levels of monsters appearing in this content have been adjusted.

    1-19 Decreased by ten levels
    20-39 Decreased by seven levels
    40-59 Decreased by four levels
    60-79 Decreased by two levels
    80-100 No change
    * These changes also apply to notorious monsters.

    Stats of some notorious monsters that only appear in the Nyzul Isle Uncharted Area Survey Assault content have been adjusted.
    By selecting damage types that monsters are weak to, such as blunt attacks, piercing attacks, or magic attacks, players are able to deal more damage than before.

    The following adjustments have been made to Legion.
    Characteristics have been given to monsters appearing within the maquette.
    Reductions in HP, attack, defense values, and other statistics as well as methods of attacking monsters' weaknesses comprise the majority of these changes, but some monsters have experienced decreases in some areas and increases in others.

    The following adjustment has been made to Einherjar.
    The HP, attack, defense, and other characteristics of "Odin" as appearing in Odin's Chamber II have been decreased.

    The following adjustment has been made to Voidwatch.

    Deimos's Mask / Deimos's Cuirass / Deimos's Gauntlets / Deimos's Cuisses / Deimos's Leggings / Freya's Mask / Freya's Jerkin / Freya's Gloves / Freya's Trousers / Freya's Ledelsens / Hikazu Kabuto / Hikazu Hara-Ate / Hikazu Gote / Hikazu Hakama / Hikazu Sune-Ate / Enlil's Tiara / Enlil's Gambison / Enlil's Kolluks / Enlil's Brayettes / Enlil's Crackows / Macha's Crown / Macha's Coat / Macha's Cuffs / Macha's Slops / Macha's Pigach

    In Bhaflau Remnants, all enemies except notorious monsters summoned by the ability Reinforcements now drop the following equipment:

    Floor Equipment
    One Enlil's Brayettes
    Macha's Cuffs
    Two Freya's Mask
    Hikazu Sune-Ate
    Three Deimos's Gauntlets
    Freya's Mask
    Four Enlil's Brayettes
    Freya's Jerkin

    The following adjustments have been made to Limbus:
    Items necessary to enter Limbus will be collected upon entry.
    Items necessary for entering Limbus are no longer exclusive.
    Accordingly, any of the appropriate items in one's possession that have already been used at the time of implementation may be used again.


    Battle-related

    Two new jobs, geomancer and rune fencer, are now available.
    Name: Battle01.jpg Views: 21 Size: 35.8 KBName: Battle02.jpg Views: 27 Size: 29.1 KB
    Specific quests must be completed in order to obtain each job.
    Read on for the details.
    * The level 70 to 71 limit break quests for geomancers and rune fencers is scheduled to be implemented in the next version update. In order to level geomancers and rune fencers past 70 before the applicable quests are implemented, players may instead complete a limit break quest for another job.

    New monsters have been introduced to roam the areas appearing in Seekers of Adoulin.
    Name: Battle03.jpg Views: 21 Size: 34.1 KBName: Battle04.jpg Views: 20 Size: 33.0 KBName: Battle05.jpg Views: 20 Size: 30.7 KBName: Battle06.jpg Views: 19 Size: 13.4 KB

    The amount of enmity accumulation based upon how much damage players deal to a target and the amount of HP it can recover will be reduced when facing targets over level 50.
    Should the target be level 99 or higher, this type of enmity accumulation will be reduced by approximately thirty percent.
    In addition, testing to reduce the amount of enmity accumulated from using the white magic spell Cure V is ongoing.
    * The static type of enmity accumulation—not based on damage dealt and HP recovered—will remain the same.
    * Additional adjustments regarding enmity are also scheduled to be implemented.

    The attack-to-defense ratio has undergone adjustment.
    When a player's level is vastly lower than the level of the monster attacking him, there will now be times when he will take much more damage than before.

    In the event that:
    Attacker's DMG: 100
    Attacker's attack power: 1000
    Defender's DEF: 250

    Amount of damage taken pre-adjustment: 200
    Amount of damage taken post-adjustment: 400
    * Simplified conditions have been used for the sake of explanation.

    The maximum amount of damage dealt based upon the attack-to-defense ratio is now the same for both one-handed and two-handed weapons.
    Therefore, there will now be occasions where the amount of damage dealt with one-handed weapons will be greater than before.

    Level differential corrections have been adjusted.
    Level differential corrections will now be made when an enemy is two levels higher than the player, and will mirror those previously made when an enemy was one level higher than a player.
    * This adjustment does not apply to enemies that have yet to be introduced.

    The amount which the Monk ability Counterstance lowers one's defense has been reduced.

    The white magic spell Embrava has undergone the following adjustments.

    Pre-adjustment Post-adjustment
    Effect
    Duration 5 minutes → 90 seconds
    Haste
    Potency Increases by 1% for every 15 points of one's enhancing magic skill → Increases by 1% for every 20 points of one's enhancing magic skill
    Regain Regain → Refresh

    The avatar Alexander's ability Perfect Defense has undergone the following adjustment.

    Pre-adjustment Post-adjustment
    Effect
    Duration 90 seconds → 30 seconds + 1 additional second for every 20 points of one's summoning skill

    Puppetmasters can now use the weapon skill Asuran Fists.

    Names for the following monsters in Zhaylom Remnants I, Arrapago Remnants II, Bhaflau Remnants II, and Silver Sea Remnants II have been adjusted.

    Enraged Hydra → Enraged Alfafd
    Khimaira Prideleader → Khrysokhimaira Elder
    Cerberus Seether → Orthrus Seether
    Bloodthirsty Dvdrgr → Bloodthirsty Dweorg

    Resolved Issues

    The issue wherein receiving the effects of Warp II, Teleport, or Retrace during a cutscene in a town would occasionally result in skipping the cutscene.

    The issue wherein various mission logs and quest logs contained errors.

    The issue wherein special effects for specific magic spells cast by the Abyssea – Grauberg enemies Fleshflayer Killakriq, Bomblix Flamefinger, and Burstrox Powderpate would not display properly under certain conditions.
