Greetings Adventurers,

Found below are the content update patch notes for the January 18, 2017 update. This update features the new Family Fame system and new events.

We understand some users may have slower connections or bandwidth limitations, we have opted to break the upcoming Margoria content into these smaller pre-download patches until its release.



  • The ‘Play Your Way!’ event has begun. Players can enjoy an increased drop rate for Black Stone (Weapon / Armor), Sharp & Hard Shards, and Ancient Relic Crystals!

    • Start: 1/18/2017

    • End: 2/1/2017

  • Black Spirit’s Adventure game has returned!

    • Start: 1/18/2017 – 9AM UTC

    • The Black Spirit’s Adventure game button has been added to the Main Menu (ESC).

[ System ]

  • In the display options, a feature has been added to turn on/off snow pile effects in safe zones only. The default setting is set to on.


While wearing the Le Vladian underwear and in combat stance, the issue where some graphics textures were clipping through has been fixed.



The Snowflake Costume  has returned to run for it’s normal limited time offer.




  • A House  Fame system has been added.

    • All characters stats within your family name will be scored in the newly introduced fame system.

    • The more characters you grow and develop the more benefits you may receive.

    • Fame is separated into combat fame, life fame, and special fame. This information can be found in the ‘My Information’ window (P).

    • Combat fame and life fame are calculated from all of your character’s combat and life levels.

    • Special fame is calculated by your knowledge and contribution points.

    • Depending on your points in each of the fame categories, you will receive a variety of daily benefits at the daily reset. Make sure to check your in-game mail and the Achievement Window (Y).

    • As benefits of various Fame Rewards, [House Fame Fund] will be given out to your mail every midnight.

    • For returning adventurers, claimable benefits from when you last logged out will be accumulated.

    • Logging into the game between UTC +0 and Maintenance start time will be counted as logging in for the day, and will not allow you to collect a daily benefit.

    • Even if your level prevents you receiving the buff provided by the Combat Fame, you will still see it in the completed tab (however you will not be able to use it).

  • The Node War duration has been changed from 3 hours back to its normal 2 hour window. Conquest war durations have been changed to 4 hours.



  • Fixed the issue where locking an item in your normal inventory, the cash shop item in the same slot in the pearl shop inventory could not be registered in the marketplace.
