Few questions here.

 

1) What happen to oridecon and elunium that we've farmed so hard for?

2) Which is counted as new/old dungeons?

3) How do we specifically level master level? Just through normal experiences from killing mobs/quests and getting materials?

4) By elements, do you mean wizard elements is just gonna be fire or is it equipment based?

5) CAN PRIEST HEAL BOMBS UNDEAD?! :D :D

Nice surprise update! :rice:

My nerd complain :

Investing in Angel Set is useless when it only lasts 14 days more than Devil Set.

Just stop unexpectedly extending the duration of the sets. It just makes you look like you don't know what you're doing.

The economy is almost exclusively dictated by kafra shop trends and bots. This kind of change may rebalance wealth but I feel bad for anyone that was hoarding.

So for the raid lockout thing, does this mean we can run any previous raid as many times as we want per day, and reset them as if they were a normal dungeon? Or is it following the same one-day lockout thing going on right now?
